Introduction: Patients with brain tumors due to limited treatment, poor prognosis, and adverse consequences of illness, experience high anxiety that reaches maximum levels at the time of surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of preoperative education on preoperative anxiety in patients with brain tumor under stereotaxic biopsy.
Methods: In this quasi-experimental study, 40 patients with brain tumors were selected with the convenience sampling method. The sample underwent face to face training before the surgery for thirty minutes. Before and after training, patients' anxiety levels were measured by the DASS questionnaire. Data were analyzed using the PASW software and through descriptive and inferential statistics. P of < 0.05 was considered significant.
Results: The sample included 24 males (60%) and 16 females (40%), aged 18 to 63 years, with mean age of 42.9 ± 13.6. Most cases were married (92.5%) and had primary education to diploma (47.5%). The mean score of patients' anxiety before sampling was 21.5 ± 5.7, and after the education it was reduced to 16.1 ± 6.2 (P = 0.001).
Conclusions: Face to face training is a training method that could be used to reduce preoperative anxiety. In this way, nurses could adjust training and present content according to the needs of patients.
