Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the information provided to patients undergoing gastroscopy procedures in Northern Ireland. Questionnaires were developed by the authors and were completed by 402 patients (RR = 43.8%) and 62 nurses (RR = 75.6%). Patients received most of the procedural information from nurses, and they recognized the importance of providing sensory information. Patients were generally satisfied with the information provided. There is clear evidence of fragmented care, and major changes are required to ensure that patients receive holistic information that includes procedural and sensory aspects. Nurses and doctors must realize that their role in information giving is to ensure that comprehensive information is provided by the appropriate professional at the appropriate time.
