Abstract

MULTIMEDIA-BASED PRESENTATIONS VERSUS DIDACTIC SESSIONS FOR PICC MANAGEMENT COMPREHENSION IMPROVEMENT IN CANCER PATIENTS: A META-ANALYSIS

Kija Malale*, James Samwel Mundamshimu, Magwa Kiyumbi

ABSTRACT

Background: It has always been a controversial issue to meet the educational needs of cancer patients living in peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) by traditional didactic approach. In recent years, some scholars have proposed multimedia-based teaching approaches. However, the potential effectiveness of these approaches is still not reliable in the literature. Objective: This study evaluated the efficacy of multimedia-based presentations on improving the comprehension of PICC management in cancer patients. This study evaluated the efficacy of multimedia-based presentations on improving the comprehension of PICC management in cancer patients. Methods: Systematic searches of the PubMed, Cochrane Library, Embase Ovid, Medline, BioMed Central-cancer (BMC-cancer), ScienceDirect and Google Scholar databases without date constraints till May 31, 2020 were performed. The methodological quality of the eligible studies was appraised by using the Cochrane risk of bias tools. Meta-analysis methods were used to synthesize study results. Results: A total of 4 intervention studies met the inclusion criteria, including three randomized controlled trials and a quasi-experimental study. All studies included 314 subjects, including 151 in the multimedia group and 163 in the control group. The findings demonstrated that the overall comprehension score of the multimedia group was significantly improved after the intervention compared with the baseline data. However, compared with face-to-face interviews or face-to-face interviews plus brochures, multimedia-based presentations had no superiority in improving patients' comprehension. Conclusion: The findings suggest that multimedia-based presentations can be used as an alternative to face-face interviews or face-face interviews plus brochures to educate cancer patients about PICC management.
