Purpose: The purpose of the study was to describe the quality of patient education in day surgery as evaluated by adult patients.
Design: Descriptive design using survey methodology.
Methods: The data were collected by questionnaire and measured the quality and implementation of education resources for day surgery patients (n = 600) in a university hospital. The data were analyzed statistically using basic and multivariate methods.
Findings: The implementation of patient education has been done in a patient-centered and goal-oriented way by half of respondents. Most respondents (81%) were satisfied with the interaction in patient education. The education resources were reported as good by 77% of respondents.
Conclusions: Health care staff should assess for the presence of anxiety as a barrier to the comprehension of information. In developing patient education, the professional expertise and skills of health care staff in educating patients should be used.
