Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Preoperative instruction has been found to decrease postoperative complications; however, the mechanisms through which preoperative instruction exerts its effects remain unknown. In this study, the relationship between preoperative self-efficacy and postoperative behaviors was investigated. Subjects were 68 cholecystectomy patients. Subjects' scores on the efficacy expectations subscale were related significantly to postoperative deep breathing, ambulation, and recall of expected events; scores on the outcome expectations subscale were related significantly to postoperative requests for pain medication. Self-efficacy theory provided a link between self perceptions and behavior and may be the mechanism through which preoperative instruction exerts its effects.
