Teaching video effect on renal transplant patient outcomes


, : Teaching video effect on renal transplant patient outcomes. Anna Journal 26(1): 29-33, 81

A study was undertaken to test the effect of a teaching video on renal transplant recipient outcomes. A quasi-experimental, pretest/posttest design was used. Fifty-nine adults undergoing renal transplantation were studied. Subjects were randomly assigned to either an experimental group, which received discharge preparatory teaching with the use of a teaching video, or to a control group, which received standard teaching. Subjects in the experimental group had significantly greater improvements in knowledge scores postteaching. No other differences were seen. Findings suggest the use of a teaching video can be a useful adjunct to educational programs designed for renal transplant patients and their families.
