Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Patient response to interactive videodisc preparation for third molar extraction surgery was examined as a function of self-reported information-seeking style. Amount learned was compared among patients informed via an interactive videodisc, noninteractive videotape of the same material, or surgeon only. Anxiety levels and satisfaction with preparation were compared between the videodisc and videotape groups. At consultation, patients (n = 35) were randomly assigned to either the disc- or the tape-viewing group. First, subjects completed a demographic survey, state anxiety scale, quiz on knowledge about third molars and surgery risks and complications, and information-seeking scales. Immediately after viewing the video, subjects completed another anxiety scale and a multiple-choice quiz covering the material presented. Subsequently, another 25 patients undergoing the routine (surgeon-only) consultation procedure were given the same multiple-choice quiz following consultation. Quiz scores differed significantly among the groups; mean percent correct for the tape-viewing subjects was 85; for disc-viewing subjects 72.6; for surgeon-only subjects, 40. Self-rated information seeking was unrelated to amount of video viewed by disc subjects (on average, 64% of the videodisc was viewed), and disc subjects who rated themselves higher in information-seeking achieved the lowest postpreparation quiz scores. Subjects in the disc group were significantly more satisfied with the amount of preparation than the tape group. Although disc group subjects were significantly less knowledgeable following consultation than were tape group subjects, interactive videodisc preparation for third molar extraction appears to have some advantages over more traditional approaches. Further research is needed to determine whether this approach to preparing patients is suitable for widespread clinical use.
