SAMMANFATTNING

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att på ett sjukhus i Mellansverige undersöka hur tillfredställda patienterna var med information om läkemedelsbiverkningar Syftet var även att undersöka grad av oro över eventuella biverkningar och jämföra om det fanns någon könskillnad gällande detta.

Metod: Studiens design var en kvantitativ tvärsnittsstudie med deskriptiv och jämförande statistik. Data samlades in genom en Studiespecifik enkät. Antalet svarande var 29 inneliggande patienter under 10 veckor som uppfyllde inklusionskriterierna.

Resultat: Resultatet visade att hälften av deltagarna inte hade fått information om läkemedelsbiverkningar och att 78 % uppgav sig vilja ha mer information. Nio av tio deltagare instämde till att vara oroliga över eventuella biverkningar och 64 % uppgav att de var osäkra eller inte visste vart de skulle vända sig vid frågor om biverkningar. Trots detta var drygt hälften av deltagarna delvis eller helt nöjda med den information de fått. Ingen statistik signifikant könsskillnad kunde påvisas i grad av oro.

Slutsats: Resultatet visar att mer och tydligare information bör ges till patienterna om eventuella läkemedelsbiverkningar. Vidare forskning är nödvändigt då mätningen av tillfredställelse ger ett motsägelsefullt resultat.

ABSTRACT

Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate how satisfied patients where with information about medical side effects in a hospital in central Sweden. The aim was also to investigate the level of worry for any side effects and compare the level of worry between genders.

Method: The design of the study was quantitative, cross-sectional. Data were collected through a study specific questionnaire. Respondents were 29 hospitalized patients who met the inclusion criteria during a 10 week period.

Findings: The results showed that half of the participants had not received information about medical side effects and that 78% claimed they wanted more information. Nine out of ten participants agreed with being concerned about possible medical side effects and 64% said they were unsure or did not know where to turn with questions about side effects. Despite this, over half of the participants were partially or completely satisfied with the information they had received. No difference was detected in the level of worry between genders.

Conclusion: The results show that more information and more distinct information should be given to patients about possible medical side effects. Further research is necessary since the measuring of satisfaction gives a contradictory result
