Abstract [sv]

Datortomografiundersökning av tjocktarmen har blivit en vanlig undersökning som utförs på röntgenavdelningar. Inför denna undersökning krävs förberedelser i form av laxering och födorestriktioner. Information till patienter inför denna undersökning är av stor vikt för förberedelsernas resultat och därmed även för en optimal undersökning.

                      Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva om patienterna upplever att de fått tillräcklig information om laxeringsförberedelserna inför en DT-undersökning av tjocktarmen. Ett annat syfte med studien var att studera om patienterna förstått den information de fått.

                      Tio patienter med en ålder mellan 62-81 år intervjuades efter DT-kolografiundersökningen på en röntgenavdelning i mellansverige under en period på två veckor. Det insamlade materialet analyserades sedan genom kvalitativ innehållsanalys.

                      De intervjuade patienterna upplevde att informationen om förberedelserna inför DT-kolografiundersökningen var tillräcklig. Patienterna kunde ordagrant återberätta den information som de erhållit men det fanns en bristande förståelse av informationen som behandlade definitionen klar dryck och tillvägagångssättet med vissa mediciner. De flesta patienterna förstod syftet med de tarmförberedelser som utförs innan undersökningen.

                      Studien visade att det fanns oklarheter i den skriftliga informationen inför DT-kolografiundersökningar som patienterna inte förstod, trots att de bedömde att informationen var tillräcklig. Genom att ta i beaktanden de brister i informationen om de tarmförberedelser som studiens resultat visar finns det förutsättning att undersökningens förberedelser och genomförande utförs på bästa möjliga sätt.

Abstract [en]

Computed tomography (CT) scan of the colon has become a common investigation in radiology departments. Prior to this examination preparation in form of purgation and food restrictions are required. Information to patients facing this examination are of great importance for the results of preparations and thus for optimal investigation.

               The aim of this studie was describe whether patients feel that they received sufficient information about the bowel preparations before a CT scan of the colon. Another purpose of the study was to see whether patients understood the information they receive before the examination.              

               Ten patients with an age between 62-81 years were interviewed after the CT colography examination at the radiology department in a hospital in the middle of Sweden for a period of two weeks. The collected material was then analyzed by qualitative content analysis.              

               The interviewed patients felt that information on preparations for the CT colonography examination was sufficient. Patients can literally retell the information received but there is a lack of understanding of the information that deals with the definition of clear liquids and the approach of certain medications. Most patients understood the purpose of the bowel preparations performance before the examination.

               The study showed that there were unclarities in the written infomrmation given before the CT colonography examination that the patients did not understand, even though they considered that the information was sufficient. By taking into considerations the lack of information about bowel preparation that the studies results show there are subject to examination, preparation and implementation is carried out in the best manner.
