Abstract

in English, German

BACKGROUND:

Student education focuses increasingly on case-related teaching. Often the consent of the patient to participate in student education is supposed to be provided. In most instances this is taken for granted - which it is not. Here, we investigated the motivation of the patients to participate in student education and influence factors using an anonymised survey.

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

The survey was performed from 2017/01/01 until 2017/04/30 and recruited inpatients of a university department of trauma surgery. The questionnaire contained 10 multiple choice questions targeting socio-demographic factors and the motivation of the patients to participate in different aspects of medical education. This was captured using a 5-point Likert scale. The electronic analysis of the questionnaire was performed with the program KLAUS (Blubbsoft GmbH, Berlin, Germany) after digitalizing the data.

RESULTS:

In total 162 questionnaires were analysed. The patients were generally highly motivated to participate in bedside teaching and a student examination as well as consenting to the collection of pictures, videos and X-ray images or subsequent contact. Patient satisfaction was a principle factor. There was a positive correlation between the satisfaction with the motivation to participate in bedside teaching and a student examination as well as giving consent to the collection of pictures, videos and X-ray images or subsequent contact. There was significantly decreased motivation for participation in a lecture. In comparison, male patients had greater motivation to participate in a lecture. Moreover 40- to 49-year-old patients were significantly less motivated to participate in a lecture than 20- to 29-year-old and 50- to 59-year-old patients. Patient satisfaction had no influence on motivation to participate in a lecture.

CONCLUSION:

The motivation of the patients to participate in bedside teaching and a student examination as well as giving consent to the collection of pictures, videos and X-ray images or subsequent contact correlated with patient satisfaction. Socio-demographic factors are less important. Patient motivation to participate in a lecture is lower regardless of patient satisfaction.
