Abstract

Aim of the study: was to evaluate the effectiveness of a designed warfarin educational program on patients’ knowledge and incidence of side effects. Research hypothesis were H1: patients who would receive a designed warfarin educational program will have higher knowledge scores related to warfarin therapy than patients who would not have received it. H2: patients who would receive a designed warfarin educational program will have lower incidence of warfarin side effects than patients who would not have received it. Research design: One group pre/post- test quasi-experimental design was utilized. Setting: The study was conducted at the two cardiovascular surgical wards at Cairo University Hospitals. Subjects: A sample of convenience of 46 adult patients. Tools for Data Collection: Two tools were utilized to collect data pertinent to the study; 1- Personal data sheet and 2- Pre/post knowledge assessment questionnaire related to warfarin therapy. Results: a high statistical significant difference was found in total knowledge scores of the studied subjects as well as lowering incidence of warfarin side effects. Recommendation: warfarin educational program should be provided to patients on warfarin therapy to maintain health and prevent complications.
