Abstract

This research study involved questions identifying the perception of nursing staff related to preoperative teaching. Does initiating teaching, built through relationships and learning during the preadmission visit, have a positive effect on outcomes? The study design included a survey based on the Likert scale, evaluating nurses who conduct preadmission testing visits with patients in the outpatient surgical setting. The evaluation provided information about the correlation of information given between the nurse and the patient, which provides teaching guidelines for educating a patient preoperatively. A cover letter was given to the participant that detailed the purpose of the study and included the rights for participating in proposed research study.
