Sorry Not Sorry: Apologizing and Its Effect on Discomfort During Dressing Removal

2017-07-14 09:38:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Use of dressing is common place following surgery, allowing for wounds to be covered and protected. Dressing material with adhesive contact layers or adhesive tape is integral to sealing off the wound. Mechanical stripping of stratum corneum during dressing removal causes pain and discomfort. During dressing removal, practitioners may at times apologize as a function of empathy. Previous study investigated speed of dressing removal and its effect on discomfort during dressing change. In this study, we aim to investigate how empathy expressed in form of saying "sorry" affect the perception of pain during dressing change?
