Title: Impact of Viewing a Patient Education Video prior to Colonoscopy on Knowledge, Anxiety, and Satisfaction
Objective: To determine the impact of viewing a patient education video about colonoscopy prior to scheduled colonoscopy versus the day of the appointment on informing and preparing patients for colonoscopy and improving the informed consent discussion.
Methods: All patients are mailed a written handout with background information about colonoscopy ten to fourteen days prior to the procedure. Patients will either receive additional written information on how to access a video on colonoscopy or will not receive additional video information. Prior to the procedure, all patients complete demographic and knowledge questionnaires and rate anxiety using a visual analog scale. The video information group proceeds with informed consent and the procedure. The no video information group views the colonoscopy video in the pre-procedure room and proceeds with informed consent and the procedure. All patients are given a satisfaction survey related to the colonoscopy information and informed consent process and are asked to return the survey via a postage paid envelope.
Results: A total of eighty-seven patients completed demographic and knowledge questionnaires and rated their anxiety. Of those patients, twenty-four received the video information and watched the video prior to their appointment; twenty-seven received the video information, did not watch the video prior to their appointment, but watched the video in the clinic office; and thirty-six did not receive the video information prior to their appointment, but watched the video in the clinic office. Twenty-seven patients returned the satisfaction survey. Statistically significant differences between the groups were not found for knowledge, anxiety, or satisfaction.
Conclusions: No statistically significant differences in knowledge about colonoscopy, anxiety, or satisfaction with the received education were found between patients who watched a video on colonoscopy prior to their appointment and patients who watched the video the day of their appointment.
