The amount of time patients spend in hospital preparing for and recovering from elective surgery has reduced significantly in recent years. Nursing interventions associated with lengthy hospital admissions are no longer appropriate for patients who may only stay in hospital for hours rather than days, and therefore psychological and educational interventions are becoming more important. This article examines the psychoeducational management of patients undergoing elective surgery.
