Abstract
PURPOSE
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of preoperative education using multimedia on level of pain, uncertainty, anxiety and depression in hysterectomy patients.
METHODS
A non-equivalent control group, with a pretest-posttest design was used in this study. The level of post operation pain, pre and post operation uncertainty, anxiety and depression of both the groups was measured. The experimental group was provided with preoperative education using multimedia on the preoperative day at the hospital. The control group was only given usual care. Data were analyzed using SPSS/WIN version 22.0 program.
RESULTS
Experimental group showed lower level of post-operation pain in 1 hour (t=-5.08, p<.001) and 24 hours (t=-5.20, p<.001) but not 48 hours (t=-0.91, p=.368). Uncertainty showed significant interaction effect of Group by Time (F=4.16, p=.018).
CONCLUSION
Preoperative education using multimedia for patients with hysterectomy would be effective in lowering patients' level of pain, uncertainty, anxiety and depression.
