Abstract

Introduction: Training is one of the most effective devices to improve the healthy
behavior and it causes them to take part in taking care of themselves and paying more
attention to treatment cementations. Hence, we aimed to measure the satisfaction of the
discharged patients regarding educational needs and their expectancy.
Methods: A descriptive study done on 502 discharged patients from Kerman hospitals. A
pre-designed questionnaire was used to collect the data.Data were analyzed by t-test and
ANOVA.
Results: The average grade for educational expectation was (85.5±16.4). For the satisfied
social workers was (45.8±18.9). The difference between the educational expectation and the
variable of discharged patients age was significant (P<0.05). There was no relationship
between the satisfaction grade of discharged patients and the fulfillment of the educational
needs.
Conclusion: The tendency of getting information and the educational expectation of the
patients were at a very high rate, but the fulfillment of their educational needs was not
favorable; so it caused the dissatisfaction and showed the need of revising. The
satisfaction of the patients was gained when there was relationship between the educational
needs and the performed curriculum. The fulfillment of the priorities and the needs in
accordance to the duration of hospitalization is crucial.
