Patients spend a considerable amount of time in clinics waiting for services and care by their providers. The purpose of the study was to examine the effects of an educational intervention, designed to occupy the waiting time in the clinic, on patient satisfaction and learning outcomes. A quasi-experimental design was used. Subjects were randomly assigned to two groups: (1) educational intervention in the clinic and (2) usual clinic care (no structured education during the waiting time in the clinic). The total sample size was 200 patients, 100 who completed the intervention and 100 who received usual clinic care. The outcome measures were patient satisfaction with the clinic visit, measured by the Visit Rating Questionnaire; actual waiting times in the clinic; and a knowledge test specific to the conditions of patients cared for in the clinics in which the study took place. Subjects’ knowledge was measured at pretest (prior to the educational intervention) and posttest (at the completion of the intervention and before entering the treatment room. Satisfaction with the clinic visit was measured at check-out from the clinic only. Data are being analyzed.
