Amaç: Halkın eğitimi ve farkındalık seviyeleri, bir halk sağlığı krizinin etkili, zamanında önlenmesi ve kontrolünde önemli bir rol oynar. Biz pandemi günlerinde Ortopedi ve Travmatoloji polikliniğine başvuran insanların bilgi, algı ve farkındalık düzeylerini ve kusurlu taraflarını belirlemeyi amaçladık. Yöntemler: Bu prospektif kesitsel çalışmada, 21 Mayıs 2020 ile 21 Haziran 2020 tarihleri arasında ortopedi polikliniğine başvuran toplam 467 hasta incelendi. Çalışmada Khan ve arkadaşlarının tanımladığı anket kullanılmıştır. Çalışmaya 16 yaş üstü toplam 276 gönüllü hasta dahil edildi. Hastaların COVID-19 hakkındaki bilgi, algı ve farkındalık düzeyleri COVID-19 pandemisinin yayılma, önleme ve kontrol politikalarına göre değerlendirildi. Bulgular: Katılımcıların %58,3'ü erkek, %41,7'si kadındı. Hastaların toplam %50'si 45 yaş altındayken, %50'si 45 yaş üzerindeydi. Katılımcıların çoğunluğunun koronavirüsün yayılmasına ilişkin bilgi düzeyleri nispeten düşük olmasına rağmen (soru-5 [n=271; %98,2], soru-6 [n=231;% 83,7], soru-7 [n=221; %80,1]) isim, köken, COVID-19 enfeksiyonunun belirti ve semptomları hakkında yeterli bilgi sahibi idi. 225 katılımcı (%81,5) enfeksiyon önleme ve kontrol konusunda herhangi bir eğitim veya yönlendirme almamıştı. Bilgiye erişimde gazete, reklam, arkadaş, aile ve diğer kaynakları tercih edenlerin yaş ortalaması (51,09 (17,63) yıl), sosyal medya ve interneti tercih edenlerden (37,85 (16,45) yıl) daha yüksekti (P<0.001). Sonuç: Toplumda yayılma yolları ve dolayısıyla COVID-19'dan korunma hakkında bilgi eksikliği vardır. Sağlık hizmeti sağlayıcılarının, insanlar arasında bilgi düzeyini ve dolayısıyla COVID-19'un yayılmasını kontrol altına almayı amaçlayan içerik kontrollü sağlık eğitimi programları geliştirmelerini ve yayınlamalarını öneriyoruz.
Aim: Public education and awareness levels play a prominent role in effective, timely prevention and control of a public health crisis. We aimed to determine the level and defective sides of knowledge, perceptions, and awareness of the population who were referred to the outpatient clinic of the Orthopedics and Traumatology on pandemic days. Methods: In this prospective cross-sectional study, a total of 467 patients who were referred to the orthopedics outpatient clinic between May 21, 2020 and June 21, 2020 were surveyed. We used the questionnaire which was previously described by Khan et al. A total of 276 volunteer patients aged over 16 years were included. Patients’ knowledge, perceptions, and awareness level regarding COVID-19 were evaluated in terms of spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, prevention, and control policies. Results: Out of these respondents, 58.3% were males and 41.7% were females. Around 50% of patients were aged less than 45 years, while 50% were above 45 years. The majority of the participants (question-5 [n=271; 98.2%], question-6 [n=231; 83.7%], question-7 [n=221; 80.1%]) had knowledge about the name, origin, signs and symptoms of COVID-19 infection, although their knowledge about the spread of coronavirus was relatively low. 225 participants (81.5%) did not receive any form of training or orientation about infection prevention and control. The mean age those who preferred newspapers and advertisements, friends and family, and other sources (51.09 (17.63) years) was higher than those who preferred social media and the internet (37.85 (16.45) years) (P<0.001). Conclusion: There is a lack of information about spread routes, hence, protection from COVID-19 in the society. We suggest that health care providers develop, and release content-checked health education programs that aim to increase the knowledge level among the people and control COVID-19 spread.
