Evaluation of the Contribution of a Pre-consultation Questionnaire on the Therapeutic Education

2016-09-20 20:38:21 | BioPortfolio


To assess the value of a dedicated knowledge questionnaire, filled by the patient prior consultation. Indeed, it could allow to target specific shortcomings of patients first, and help the cardiologist to prioritize the other therapeutic education, targeting specifically the information provided.


The main objective is to study the impact of a pre-consultation questionnaire on the knowledge gained by the patient on anticoagulant treatment at the exit of cardiology consultation.

The assumption is that this questionnaire would help educate patients about their shortcomings and educate cardiologists lack of knowledge of his patient.

The secondary objectives are :

- Target specific areas in which patients have the greatest lack of information

- Assess the impact of educational level on information

- Assess the impact of age on information

- Evaluate the satisfaction of the information delivered

- Assess patient anxiety vis-à-vis their treatment

- Evaluate the failure rate of the questionnaire to know the number of patients refusing to participate in the study
