PSYCHO-EDUCATIONAL PREPARATION FOR PATIENTS BEFORE SURGERY

PSYCHOEDUCATION IS THE PSYCHOLOGICAL PREPARATION OF PATIENTS BEFORE A SURGERY, and it implies counseling for all patients before a surgery. This counseling includes brief education about the surgery, a conversation about stress and fear which the patient may normally feel, and reflection in terms of the emotions that include overwhelming, fear and threat.

It has been proven that patients who are psychologically prepared, advised and informed about the surgery find it easier to cope with the surgery and they recover sooner. The whole family also participates in the recovery of the patient and for this reason it is important that they are psychologically prepared and informed about what the patient should expect.
