Introduction: Nowadays, one of the types of treatment for patients is surgery, which is a stressful experience and causes psychological reactions such as anxiety. Failure to control can negatively affect the outcome of the patient's physical activity and condition. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of education on patients undergoing surgery.
Materials and Methods: In this experimental study, 84 patients who were candidates for surgery were randomly divided into two groups of 42 patients (test and control).
All patients completed demographic questionnaire and STAI (State-Trait Anxiety Inventory) questionnaire on admission day. Then in the experimental group, patients were given face to face training the day before surgery. Before the surgery, the Spielberger questionnaire was completed again by the patients. The collected data were analyzed by SPSS software.
Results: Pre-intervention anxiety in the experimental and control groups were (91.83 ± 4.71) and (92.52 ± 5.58), respectively, which was not statistically significant (p = 0.552). But after intervention the mean anxiety in the experimental and control groups were (87.55 ± 3.63) and (93.17 ± 8.66), respectively, which was statistically different (P <0.001) ).
Conclusion: According to the results, it is suggested to provide necessary fields for training of patients undergoing surgery which can be effective in improving the status of patients.
