Anxiety and satisfaction of surgical patients undergoing educational intervention: randomized clinical trial


The Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocol or protocol for acceleration of postoperative recovery is characterized by a set of multimodal interventions aimed at reducing the recovery time of surgical patients. Thus, the nursing team is essential to support the adherence and implementation of the ERAS protocol in health services, with a significant role of health education in the preoperative period. Objectives: To evaluate the effect of the application of educational actions in the preoperative period and at hospital discharge, in the process of accelerating the recovery of patients undergoing colorectal surgery. Method: The study will consist of two stages, with the construction and validation of an educational booklet in the first stage, and execution in the second stage of a randomized clinical trial, to be developed in the gastroenterology unit and outpatient clinic of a large hospital. The sample will be composed of adult patients undergoing elective colorectal surgery, randomly assigned to control and intervention groups, with the application of the IDATE instrument to assess anxiety and the EORTC IN-PATSAT32 instrument to assess patient satisfaction. Expected results: It is expected that the study will identify the importance of health education for patients undergoing elective colorectal surgery, highlighting the relevance of this intervention for the outcomes that influence the process of accelerating postoperative recovery as pre- and postoperative anxiety and patient satisfaction with the care provided.
