Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to determine if a written patient education booklet would produce an increase in knowledge of adult participants. Thirty subjects were admitted to this quasi-experimental, post-test only study. Subjects in the experimental group (n = 16) were given a patient education booklet, "PTCA--A Patients' Guide," before angioplasty and an Evaluation Questionnaire after angioplasty. Both groups were given a Knowledge Questionnaire after angioplasty. The Student's t-test of independent group means resulted in a non-significant t-value. No difference in knowledge test scores was found between patients who received the booklet and patients who did not receive the booklet. Results from the evaluation questionnaire suggest that subjects perceived the booklet and pictures to be helpful as preparation for angioplasty. Therefore, revision of the PTCA Knowledge Questionnaire and refinement of the study design is suggested.
