[Research Presentation] Objectives: This study compares the knowledge expectations and received knowledge of ambulatory orthopaedic surgery patients and their satisfaction to education. The ultimate goal was to improve patient empowerment by education. Method: A descriptive and correlational pre-post test study. The sample consisted of 120 ambulatory orthopaedic surgery patients at one University hospital in Finland. All patients participated in a preoperative education session. The education session consisted of individual face-to-face education with a nurse. One nurse provided this education session, which lasted about 30 minutes and took place in a separate room on the day surgery unit. Patients were given a leaflet of the content of the education. The content of education was divided into six dimensions of empowering knowledge: bio-physiological, functional, experiential, ethical, social and financial. Empirical data were collected twice by structured questionnaires: before the ambulatory surgery in connection with a preoperative education session and two weeks after the operation. The evaluations of educational sessions were made by 0-100 scale and the evaluations of empowering knowledge by scale1=fully disagree to 4=fully agree. Results: Ambulatory orthopaedic surgery patients expected (3.35) more knowledge than they received (2.88; p<0.0001). The results indicated that patient who were more satisfied to education (total) were received more knowledge than the less satisfied patients (p=0.044). Thus patients' satisfaction was no correlated to patients knowledge expectations. Also the patients, who were more satisfied to the intelligibility and usefulness of the provided education and sufficiency of the written material, received more knowledge than those who were less satisfied. Conclusion: Patients' satisfaction to education was correlated to received knowledge but still patients knowledge expectations are greater than the knowledge they receive. This issue calls for further research; how to fulfill these expectations.
