ABSTRACT

Purpose: This study was conducted to identify the effect of providing animation information on uncertainty and self-efficacy in patients with coil embolization for unruptured intracranial aneurysm. Methods: The study design was a nonequivalent control group with a pre-test/post-test design. There were 55 subjects admitted to the U university hospital for coil embolization. They were allocated into either experimental group (n=27), or control group (n=28). Animation information developed by the authors was used as educational material for the experimental group. The data were collected from June to November, 2017. The study instruments were the Uncertainty Scale and Self-efficacy Scale. Collected data were analyzed using the x2 test and t-tests. Results: The level of uncertainty was significantly reduced in the experimental group (t=-3.17, p=.003). The level of self-efficacy was not statistically significant difference between the groups (t=-1.72, p=.091). Conclusion: The results of this study suggest that the animation information effectively reduced the subject’s level of uncertainty. Therefore, it could be utilized as a nursing intervention to reduce the uncertainty of patients with coil embolization for unruptured intracranial aneurysms.
