This study was designed to test the effects of providing animated information on preoperative anxiety and postoperative nursing satisfaction of children who had received strabismus surgery as well as any effects on their guardians.
The subjects of the study consisted of hospitalized school-aged children and their guardians who were waiting for strabismus surgery in the P university hospital in B metropolitan city. There were 20 pairs of experimental groups and 20 pairs of control groups. The animated information was provided twice before and after the surgery. The data was analyzed using χ2-test, t-test and ANCOVA using the SPSS program.
The preoperative anxiety of children and their guardians was significantly improved in the experimental group compared to those in the control group. Postoperative nursing satisfaction was also significantly increased in the experimental group.
These results suggest that providing such animated information may reduce preoperative anxiety and increase nursing satisfaction after the performance of strabismus surgery operations on children as well as effects on their guardians. Therefore, animated information is recommended for use in clinical fields for children who are to receive strabismus surgery child in addition to their guardians as an efficient nursing intervention.
