SAMMANFATTNING

Bakgrund

De allt kortare vårdtiderna inom sjukvården ställer höga krav på patientinformationen som ges pre- och postoperativt. Forskning visar att patienternas informationsbehov inte alltid överensstämmer med mängden information som ges. Patienter upplever ofta att informationen som ges är otillräcklig och saknar relevans. God pre- och postoperativ information har många fördelar, då den leder till såväl ökad trygghet som bättre förutsättningar i det postoperativa förloppet.

 

Syfte

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur kirurgiska patienter vid en hudmottagning och en urokirurgisk vårdavdelning uppfattade den pre- och postoperativa information de fick i samband med kirurgi.

 

Design

Studien var en enkätstudie med kvantitativ ansats och inkluderade 30 respondenter.

 

Resultat

Resultatet visade att huvuddelen av patienterna uppgav att de hade läst den skriftliga informationen de fick. De hade också uppfattat att informationen var lättillgänglig. Majoriteten tyckte att den totala mängden information var tillräcklig. Vidare svarade majoriteten att de hade fått tillräcklig information om smärtlindring under vårdtiden. Hälften av respondenterna angav att de hade fått tillräcklig information om hur de kunde förebygga komplikationer. Ungefär hälften uppgav att de inte hade fått tillräcklig information om sårvård.

 

Slutsats

Av resultatet drogs slutsatsen att patientinformationen som ges på de två enheterna verkar vara lättförståelig och tillräckligt omfattande, dock finns utrymme för förbättring, framförallt inom området komplikationer och sårvård.

ABSTRACT

Background

The shorter length of stay in hospitals place greater demands on the patient information that is given pre- and postoperative. Research shows that the amount of given information does not match with the patients’ informational needs. Patients often experience the given information as inconclusive and irrelevant. Good pre- and postoperative information has many benefits. It leads both to an increased sense of security and to better postoperative outcomes.

 

Purpose

The purpose of the current study was to explore how surgical patients at a dermatology outpatient facility and an acute care urological surgery ward perceived the pre- and postoperative information in connection with the surgery.

 

Design

The study was a quantitative survey and included 30 participants.

 

Findings

The results showed that the majority of the patients stated that they had read the written pre- and postoperative information that they had received. They had also perceived the information as easily available. The majority of the patients reported that the total amount of the information was sufficient. Furthermore, the majority also replied that they had received sufficient information about relieving their pain during the hospital stay. Half of the subjects stated that they had received enough information about how to prevent complications. Half of the subjects claimed that they had not received enough information about wound care.

 

Conclusions

Based on the results, it could be concluded that the patient information that was given at the two clinics appears to be easily understood and sufficiently extensive, though there is room for improvement, especially within the area of complications and wound care.
