V Tudor, O Velicu, R Ciobanu, DF Albu, M Mitran, E Severin


Rezumat: Introduction. In an era of technology in full development, information has become very easily accessible. However, pregnant patients have important gaps in knowing the main methods of screening and antenatal diagnosis of fetal malformations. This study aims to achieve the “informed” and “uninformed” patients profile, and to present a fast score for the patient level of knowledge, in ordet to have a better physician – patient relationship. Materials and method. The study method was represented by a survey based on a structured interview, applied to 364 pregnant or postpartum patients of maximum 7 days, hospitalized between October 2016 and June 2017 at the “Prof. Dr. Panait Sîrbu” Clinical Hospital of Obstetrics and Gynecology, from Bucharest. Results and conclusions. The level of knowledge has been influenced directly proportional in the most obvious and constant way by social-symbolic variables (level of education, degree of occupational resources, and origin environment). The higher the social-symbolic level, the higher the level of patient's demand, the interest in the precision of the required diagnostic method in case of increased risk of malformation and additional information until the decision to interrupt the pregnancy in front of a positive diagnosis.
Cuvinte cheie: prenatal screening, prenatal diagnosis, information.
