As modern surgical and anaesthetic techniques develop even greater capabilities, the time in which to adequately undertake such nurse/patient discussions has past and will never return. Information provision is thus a challenge for day surgery. Many studies have suggested patients require differing levels of information i.e. full, partial and minimal disclosure. Future information booklets may need to be constructed in a more patient centred manner. This article attempts to provide a methodical approach to the required level of information, a guide to the construction of information booklets and suggestions for their application in day surgery.
