Aim: Treatment in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a stressful experience, not only for the patient but also for their family. The aim of the study was to investigate the effects on anxiety and depression levels of the relatives of patients in ICU who were given information once a day or three times a day by the same physician.

Methods: In this cross sectional study the relatives of the patients hospitalized in the ICU of two university hospitals were randomly separated into two groups. Group 1 comprised 50 individuals closely related to patients in the ICU and they were given information about the patient once a day. Group 2 comprised 49 individuals closely related to patients in ICU and they were given information 3 times a day at 4-hour intervals. After 7 days, all the participants in Groups 1 and 2 completed the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) and the Penn State Worry Questionnaire (PSWQ).

Results: The BDI points of Group 1 were determined to be statistically significantly higher than those of Group 2 (p<0.01). The PSWQ points of Group 1 were determined to be statistically significantly higher than those of Group 2 (p<0.023).

Conclusion: By providing information to the relatives of patients 3 times a day rather than once a day created confidence that the patient was being well cared for, involvement with physician in the decision-making process and the feeling that the physician could be reached, thereby strengthening the physician- family relationship. This leads to lower rates of anxiety and depression.


Amaç: Yoğun bakım ünitesi (YBÜ)’nde tedavi görmek sadece hastalar için değil aynı zamanda hastaların aileleri için oldukça stresli bir deneyimdir. Bu çalışma ile hasta yakınlarının aynı hekim tarafından günde bir defa bilgilendirilmesi ile günde üç defa bilgilendirilmesinin endişe ve depresyon düzeyleri üzerine etkisini araştırmayı amaçladık.

Yöntemler: Bu kesitsel çalışmada iki üniversite hastanesinin YBÜ’lerinde yatan hasta yakınları randomize olarak iki gruba ayrılmıştır. Birinci gruptaki 50 hasta yakınına günde bir defa bilgi verilirken ikinci gruptaki 49 hasta yakınına 4 saat ara ile günde 3 defa bilgi verilmiştir. 7. Günün sonunda aynı hasta yakınlarından Beck depresyon ölçeği (BDÖ) ve Penn state endişe ölçeği (PSEÖ) doldurmaları istenmiştir.

Bulgular: Günde bir defa bilgilendirilen hasta yakınlarının BDÖ puanları günde 3 defa bilgilendirilen gruba göre anlamlı derecede yüksekti (p<0,01). Günde bir defa bilgilendirilen hasta yakınlarının PSEÖ puanları günde 3 defa bilgilendirilen gruba göre anlamlı derecede yüksekti (p=0,023).

Sonuç: Hasta yakınlarına günde bir defa bilgi vermek yerine üç defa bilgi vermek hasta yakını-hekim güven ilişkisini güçlendirerek, hasta yakınlarının hastaya iyi bakıldığından emin olmalarına, hekimin ulaşılabilir olduğunu hissetmelerine neden olmaktadır. Hekimle hasta yakını ilişkisinin güçlenmesi kaygı ve depresyon oranlarının daha düşük olmasını sağlamaktadır.
