Evaluation of Verbal and Visual Information Techniques

2019-07-18 10:31:20 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of preoperative and postoperative anxiety levels on patients using oral information, visual information with surgical photographs and visual information via audio-video. To evaluate anxiety levels, dental anxiety scale (DAS), modified dental anxiety scale (MDAS) and state anxiety scale (STAI-S, STAI-T) scales will be used.


After giving written information about the study, an informed consent form will be distributed to patients who want to participate in the study and they will be asked to sign it. Patients who have signed the consent form will be asked to complete the DAS, MDAS, STAI-T and STAI-S questionnaires in the waiting room to assess preoperative anxiety levels.

Verbal, photos and video information used to inform patients. Patients will be randomly divided into 3 groups. A total of 60 patients with 20 patients in each group will be included in the study. Patients in all groups will be operated by the same surgeon. Oral information will be given to the patients in the first group. In the second group, visual information will be given to the patients by showing the photos of the operation process. Patients in group 3 will also be shown a video of an audio implant operation showing the operation process. The operation video of a previously implanted patient will be watched by the attending physician. This video will begin with the physician informing the patient about the implant and continue with anesthesia. Afterward, the video will be terminated by giving information about the implant operation video and the complications that the patient may encounter and the points to be considered after the operation.

A 7-day pain score will be obtained using the Smiley VAS scale to measure postoperative pain levels and patients will be asked to note how many painkillers they use. In addition, blood pressure and pulse measurements will be taken before and after surgery.

A common text was prepared in all groups in order to provide preoperative information in an ideal way. In group 1, information related to this text will be given orally. In the 2nd and 3rd groups, patients will be informed about the same information as well as visuality.
