Readability of online educational materials for brainstem implants: An assessment

Öz:
Aim: This study aimed to assess the readability of online patient education materials related to brainstem implants and to determine how comprehensible these materials are for patients and their families. Methods: Using Google Search with the term “auditory brainstem implant”, the first 50 websites were identified and categorized into two: Hospital and General Information Websites. Non-educational texts were removed from each site, and readability was assessed using six established readability tests. The readability scores for the texts were automatically calculated using a dedicated online tool. Results: Overall, all websites were found to have a high level of readability, surpassing the recommended 6th-grade reading level suggested by the American Medical Association. No significant difference was found between the readability scores of hospitals and general information websites. Conclusions: The online patient education materials concerning brainstem implants typically exceed the recommended reading levels, which may hinder patients and their families from fully understanding these materials. There’s a need for health professionals and institutions to strike a balance between scientific accuracy and readability to cater to a broader audience and make their materials more accessible.

Beyin sapı implantları için çevrimiçi eğitim materyallerinin okunabilirliği: Bir değerlendirme

Öz:
Amaç: Bu çalışma, beyin sapı implantlarıyla ilgili çevrimiçi hasta eğitim materyallerinin okunabilirliğini değerlendirmeyi ve bu materyallerin hastalar ve aileleri için ne kadar anlaşılabilir olduğunu belirlemeyi amaçlamaktadır. Yöntemler: “Odyolojik beyin sapı implantı” terimi ile Google Arama kullanılarak ilk 50 web sitesi belirlendi ve iki kategoriye ayrıldı: Hastane ve Genel Bilgi Web Siteleri. Her siteden eğitimle ilgili olmayan metinler kaldırıldı ve okunabilirlik, altı kurulu okunabilirlik testi kullanılarak değerlendirildi. Metinlerin okunabilirlik puanları, özel bir çevrimiçi araç kullanılarak otomatik olarak hesaplandı. Bulgular: Genel olarak, tüm web sitelerinin okunabilirlik seviyesi yüksek bulundu ve Amerikan Tıp Birliği’nin önerdiği 6. sınıf okuma seviyesini aştı. Hastane ve genel bilgi web sitelerinin okunabilirlik puanları arasında anlamlı bir fark bulunmadı. Sonuçlar: Beyin sapı implantlarıyla ilgili çevrimiçi hasta eğitim materyalleri, genellikle önerilen okuma seviyelerini aşmaktadır, bu da hastaların ve ailelerinin bu materyalleri tam olarak anlamalarını engelleyebilir. Sağlık profesyonellerinin ve kurumların, daha geniş bir kitleye hitap etmek ve materyallerini daha erişilebilir kılmak için bilimsel doğruluk ve okunabilirlik arasında bir denge kurmaları gerekmektedir.
