dc.description.abstract With the decreasing length of hospitalization for the Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) patient population, it is becoming increasingly difficult to provide patients with necessary education. The purpose of this study was to examine patients' perceptions of the importance of patient teaching information, and how realistic they perceive it is to learn the information following CABG surgery. Patients' learning and understanding are increased when the information is perceived as important.The findings of this study indicated that CABG patients rated the areas of medication, diet and activity information as the most important to learn during the early recovery period. The patients indicated that it was less realistic to learn in the areas of anatomy and physiology, risk factors, medications, diet, activity, post surgical care, psychological factors, and other pertinent information during the early recovery period. The information gained from this study could be used to enhance educational content for patients who have undertaken CABG surgeries.
