Background and aims: According to the evidences patients are suffering due to not having information their operation before and after surgery. This study was aimed to compare verbal education effects of face to face and leafletson the patients, knowledge scheduled for unemergency operation. Methods: This clinical trial randomized study was carried out by 90 patients scheduled for operation and assigned randomly to three groups (two intervention groups and one control group). Two intervention groups received education via leaflet and face to face by a doctor. The control group received routine education. The level of preoperative knowledge of patients before operation was composing the research variable that was evaluated by multiple- choice knowledge test before and after operation. Results: The findings of the study showed that respect to knowledge level, the mean scores of both interventional groups were significantly higher than that in control group after the intervention (P<0.05), but there was no significant difference between experimental and control groups (P>0.05). Conclusions: The results suggest that both face to face education by a doctor and using leaflet can equally help patients to acquire necessary knowledge for an elective operation. So, in the hospital setting, where staffsinterfaces to time pressure, leaflet can educate patients without seeing a doctor or a nurse.
