This chapter will give an introductory background to the topic which is to be studied and
Satisfaction is one of the core outcome measures for health care. It is intuitively more
appealing than measures of health care effectiveness or efficiency that are more difficult to
understand. Satisfaction is the e<tent of an individual=s e<perience compared with his or
her e<pectations.
9alaysia>s health delivery system provides a comprehensive health care service as it
focuses on wellness? client friendly? broad care with efficient use of resources and
achieving high @uality service in promoting individual wellness for life.
$ursing in 9alaysia has evolved in many aspects as it faces e<ternal and internal
challenges. Increased competition among private health service providers as well as
improvement in the government health care system has put patient>s satisfaction as an
important benchmark. !ther factors that influence patient>s consideration in their choice of
health provider are also being looked into and improve.
According to 9c*onnel and $ash? patient satisfaction with nursing services gain even
more importance because nursing staff comprises the ma0ority of the health staff
A9c*onnel and $ash (558B. "urthermore? they are constantly found at the side of the
patient to satisfy their needs. It is common knowledge that patients= and families count on
nurses to keep them informed? to connect them to their physicians and other caregivers? to
listen to them? to ease their an<iety? and to protect and watch over them during their
healthcare e<perience. As such? patients are uni@uely able to provide information about
their ease or difficulty of obtaining care.
%atient>s satisfaction is very sub0ective and surveys have been conducted to provide
feedback on the demand and needs of the patients. 7ith these feedbacks? services which
are found to be lacking can be addressed and improve. Avis? Bond and Thomas A(55/B
said? studies on patient>s satisfaction provide facts on the health care provider>s success at
the patient>s e<pectation and need? as well as an important tool for research and
Studies by Lauer? 9urphy and %ower A(54,B and !berst A(54.B demonstrated a strong
relationship between ade@uacy of information and overall patient satisfaction with care.
Information giving helps to empower patients to take control over health care and to
comply with treatment other than making them happy and comfortable.
According to Longo et al A,88(B patient>s satisfaction on information giving in health care
has been a growing consensus that health care environment best characterised as one in
which patient choice in a competitive marketplace where they play an active role in
making decisions about their health care. "actors contributing growing consensus include
patient=s movement? advances in science of patient outcome assessment and the
development and dissemination of patient reports and other health care information such as
patient education material.
$urses are in an ideal position to provide patients with information that could aid them in
their decision in treatment ASchutta and Burnett A,888B. Antenatal mothers e<perienced
more fear? worry and an<iety and they usually trust the health car professionals to provide
any information they need to know ACones et al A,88(B.
Based on the studies? patient satisfaction is one area where the @uality of service of a
particular discipline can be assessed. "acilitating information during pregnancy can allay
e<pectant mothers fear and an<iety especially to an ine<perienced housewife. Therefore? a
study on patient>s satisfaction on information giving at the *esa Tun Hussein !nn A*TH!B
antenatal clinic is proposed.
1.2 T%&!&'(ca) Fa*&+!k
%atients that come to a clinic with the sole aim of getting their complains attended to or
their illness treated and e<pect to get well after that. However? patients come from a variety
of socioDeconomic background. Therefore? the health workers should e<pect a variety of
characters? attitudes? education background? cultural beliefs? e<periences and differing
health knowledge among patients. Thus? a particular set of health information may not
fulfil allif not the ma0ority of patients that seek treatment due to differing level of
understanding of the information given. Some patients may need further elaboraion on
certain issues to make them fully understand the sub0ect being discussed.

The proposed study centre is a family clinic situated at the military housing area known as
*esa Tun Hussein !nn A*TH!B. It is located about two kilometer from the 9inistry of
*efence comple< and near the Setiawangsa area. It provides outpatient services? maternal
and child health clinic and family planning clinic. The patients seen at this clinic are
female military personnel? and kin of military personnel.
The clinic staff consists of one medical doctor? one nursing sister? two staff nurses Aaka
midwivesB and three community nurses. The small number of staff compare to the number
of patients they have to handle is unimaginable at times since the number of patients they
have to attend to? on the average? is (/8. The number of e<pectant mother and
immunisation patients is as Table (.

This study will provide a feedback on the service provided by the clinic. It may provide an
insight into the system and may be use to improve any shortcomings of the services
provided. This study will allow the staff to focus on the re@uirement of the patients and
improving the services and thus making the staff more competent. Besides that? the
management can identify the education needs of the staff and their need for further training
as well as upgrading the standard of practice.

2.1 I#'!$"c'(!#
This chapter will discussed any literature published on the sub0ect matter.
There are many ways and means to evaluate ones performance and for nursing services?
patient satisfaction is one concept for evaluating the service. According to 9illerDBader
A(544B Acited in 9erkouris et al A(555BB? traditionally? health care providers assumed that
they know the needs of patients based on professional standard and their assessment.
Therefore with an increasingly competitive healthcare environment? escalating costs and
continuously increasing patients need and awareness? patient satisfaction is one area that
healthcare providers should look into.
$ursing staff comprised the ma0ority of all health staff and are constantly found at the side
of the patient to satisfy their needs? which comprises the main component in the treatment?
maintenance and rehabilitation of the patients health. 9any patients still prefer to get
health information with nurses as they feel comfortable with nurses.
LeinoDHilpi et al. A(55-B Acited in Henderson et al. A,88.B? mentioned about the provision
of relevant and appropriate information during hospitaliGation and visits to clinics is a
fundamental aspects of health care. It also stresses the importance in the promotion of
patient autonomy? dignity and selfDrespect.
9odern technology have made it possible for patient to ac@uire knowledge either through
the internet? electronic media and other mass media? magaGines? books? videos and 0ournals
as mentioned by Cones et al. A,88(B? Ipatients have increasing e<pectations for health
information and can draw on a widening range of resources.J
Therefore? the researcher will focused on patients> satisfaction on the aspects of
information giving. The researcher considered it as important as any health information
given which can be part of the patient>s health education which is an integral component of
health care.
At the antenatal clinic? nurses play an important role as information providers or health
educators. "urthermore? mothers today are educated and well informed through reading
and are curious and an<ious to know more about their pregnancy? what are the do>s and
don>t during pregnancy. #onse@uently they need more information in the process of
empowerment for their health care ALauer et al.? (54,K 9essner? (55-) Luker? (55/B.

9ay be the first attempt to evaluate patients satisfaction with health service began in (5/1
in the +SA? in the field of nursing AAbdellah L Levine in (5/2aDe?(51. cited in 9erkouris
et al (555B. Since then several researchers have attempted to find a solution to the
problems of patient satisfaction by e<amining the different roles of the patient which is
influence by the characteristics? goals and activities of the services. These generate
interaction between the patient and the nurses where satisfaction can be achieved during
these interaction.
7illiams A(55.B cited in Hyrkas and %aunonen A,888B? have e<amined satisfaction theories
and relate problems of satisfaction surveys in healthcare. Satisfaction can be seen as a
process including e<pectation? conception and assumption of outcome.
The patient satisfaction research and survey stared to draw attention in the (548s after the
publication of *eming>s and *onabedian>s classical work on @uality assurance and @uality
management A7hittington?(551 as cited in Hyrkas and %aunonen?,888B. It is common
knowledge that patients enter the health care system with a variety of characteristics?
attitudes and prior e<periences and these affect the degree of satisfaction.

Studies by Irena and leanor A,88,B found that women who had attended antenatal
education were satisfied with the date and time of antenatal classes? and the information
about self and baby care being provided. They? however? felt unprepared for the demands
of motherhood and they prefer personal need for antenatal preparation for motherhood?
unrealistic preparation for breastfeeding problems. They also felt the educator who gave
health education only stressed the positive aspects of breastfeeding and failed to highlight
the difficulties that can arise. As such they wanted more information on breastfeeding and
prepare them to handle the comple<ity of breastfeeding. They also need information on
baby care and to manage common neonatal problems. Information on self care was
insufficient as the mothers were confused on the episiotomy wound care and perineal care.
