Evaluation of information given to rheumatology patients using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs



Evaluation of information given to rheumatology patients using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs



Journal of Clinical Nursing 7(2): 175-181



This paper reports the findings of a study of information given to rheumatology patients using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. One hundred and twenty patients were randomized to three groups. Group A received an information leaflet, Group B received both a leaflet and a verbal explanation and Group C received only a verbal explanation. Information was gathered on demography, knowledge base, sources of information, satisfaction with the leaflet and further information requirements. Data were collected by questionnaires which were completed before randomization and 8-12 weeks later. Analysis indicates the potential benefits of giving information to patients although the full implications of these benefits are not clear and further research is indicated in this important area.
