Abstract

Aim: To compare the effectiveness of preadmission telephone screening versus clinic assessment for preparedness of patients undergoing endoscopy during day surgery procedure. Method: Data was collected from participants by completion of an explicit questionnaire. Results: Forty-nine patients participated. No differences were observed in preparedness for surgery in patients who are assessed by telephone screening or clinic assessment in the pre-operative period. Conclusion: In general telephone screening and clinic assessment of patients ensured preparedness for surgery. Future research might demonstrate a difference with a larger study.
