Title:
Educational Needs of Patients with a Stroke and Their Caregivers: A Systematic Review of the Literature
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) Objective: Systematic review of evidence on patients’ and caregivers’ educational needs in different phases after stroke. Method:   Search was conducted of Medline, CINAHL, EMBASE, PsychINFO and Cochrane Library (1999-2009) returning 939 articles. 14 studies met all inclusion criteria and were of sufficient methodological quality. Results:    Educational needs of patients mainly concern the knowledge of the stroke, prevention, treatment and recovery, whereas the most described needs of caregivers focus on knowledge of stroke, consequences, care facilities for support and prevention. Conclusion:   Educational needs were experienced as important by stroke patients and caregivers, but these were often not met. Educational needs change over the time. Patient and caregivers needed information that is tailored to their own situation and they wanted to receive information verbal and in writing. It was found important that health care professionals take time to answer questions and answer them honestly. Practice implications:   Health care professionals need to inquire with individual patient and caregiver concerning their educational needs. They need to plan how to provide educational interventions and bear in mind the individual differences between patients and carers. Educational needs should be taken into account for the development of educational interventions. More support is needed from leadership and management.
