Abstract:
Abstract The application of information technology in health education plan in Taiwan had gone for a long time. This study was performed to synthesize existing research comparing the effects of information technology application versus traditional instruction in health education plan on patients’ anxiety in Taiwan. In spite of claims regarding the potential benefits of using information technology in health education plan, research results comparing the effects of information technology application and traditional instruction in Taiwan were conflicting. Meta-analysis was a statistical process whereby the findings of several studies, focusing on a common problem or topic, are pooled in an effort to draw inferences as to the meaning of a collective body of research. The results of this study indicate that information technology application in health education plan had moderately effects on patients’ anxiety over traditional health education plan in Taiwan. The results from this study suggest information technology application with health education is positive with patients’ anxiety. This study compared the effects of traditional health education plan on preoperative anxiety of patients with the therapy of information technology application, music, and aromatherapy. It could find that the effects of music therapy were better than others, and information technology application was the second. So the effects of information technology application on preoperative anxiety of patients could be increased with the therapy of music. Keywords:health education plan, healthcare, patients’ anxiety, network meta-analysis
