Introduction: Satisfaction of patients’ families is one of the criteria for assessing the quality of nurses’ performance. Considering the low satisfaction of stroke patient’s families in received information, the present study was done to determine effect of informational support on satisfaction of family caregivers of patients with hemiplegic stroke from received Information.
Methods: In this semi-experimental study, 78 family caregivers of patients with hemiplegic stroke admitted to the neurology department of Farshchian (Sina) Hospital of Hamadan (2017), were selected by Convenience sampling, and were divided continuously into two groups: control (n=38) and intervention (n=40). The research intervention was conducted from third to eleventh day of hospitalization. Information was provided about the department, equipment, patient status, home care individually and as a group method. The control group received routine care. Satisfaction of family caregivers was measured before and after the intervention in both groups. The data collecting tool was a questionnaire of demographic characteristics of the caregiver and patient, a researcher-made questionnaire to assess the satisfaction analyzing the received information. Data were analyzed using SPSS16.
Results: Groups were similar in terms of demographic variables. There was a significant difference between before (79.15±21) and after (121.4±9.93) intervention at satisfaction scores in intervention group, and between the two groups (intervention and control) after intervention (P<0.001).
Conclusion: Informational support is effective on increasing the satisfaction of family caregivers of patients with stroke. Therefore, informational support is recommended as an important nursing intervention.
