SANTANA DIEZ, María Auxiliadora et al. Results of an educational program with audio-visual reinforcement during the session in hemodialysis patients. Enferm Nefrol [online]. 2017, vol.20, n.2, pp.126-131. ISSN 2255-3517.

Audiovisual media are essential to reinforce patient information. The objective of this study is to describe the usefulness of educational presentations for hemodialysis patients and available audiovisual media in the unit.

Three educational presentations were developed in Microsoft Office Power Point and questionnaires were used with 13 questions regarding fundamental aspects of care approached in the presentations, before and after these presentations. vA descriptive statistical analysis was performed with the distribution of frequencies and percentages of the categorical variables and with the mean and standard deviation of the quantitative variables. To test the results of the responses before and after the presentations, the McNemar's test was used for two related samples, with a statistical significance level of p<0.05.

The study included 45 patients, 73.3% males with a mean age of 63.82 years. Statistically significant results were found with p=0.031 and p=0.004, concerning questions about fistula disinfection and protein intake.

The present study has served to demonstrate that the tool has opened new training possibilities for patients.
