Priority 11 from the Heart Surgery PSP
|UNCERTAINTY: How can we improve the communication between the medical team and patients/carers regarding the risks and benefits of heart surgery? (JLA PSP Priority 11)|
|JLA question ID||0088/11|
|Explanatory note||Communication between caregivers and patients has been rarely investigated in cardiac surgery. Our search identified a recent systematic review comparing telemedicine and usual communication, which contained a subgroup analysis of trials (only 2) conducted in cardiac surgery. More research is needed.
~ How could heart surgery procedures be better explained to patients and their family? Will including patients live or on video chat affect outcomes of multidisciplinary team?
