Abstract [sv]

The aim of this study was to determine the self-perceived learning needs in patients with Coronary Heart Disease (CHD). CHD is the leading cause of death worldwide. Poor compliance is one of the causes of rehospitalisation. Patients suffering from CHD need education in order to manage their disease and prevent readmission to hospital. As hospital stays diminish the time available for patient education is limited. It is therefore vital to identify the learning needs of patients in order to achieve optimal educational intervention. By allowing the patients themselves to express their wishes for eduction, their motivation to engage in self-care is increased. A systematic literature rewiew was carried out. Electronic database searches as well as a manual search resulted in 13 quantitative and three qualitative articles that were included in the study. Patients considered all information categories important to learn. Medication, symtom recognition and management, treatment and anatomy and psysiology were ranked as top categories. Patients with CHD perceived learning needs in all areas related to CHD. The results of this study could be used to create tailored educational programmes in order to increase patient complicance and thus decrease hospital readmissions.
