Knowledge Level and Risk Perceptions about Hepatitis of Relatives of Patients with Hepatitis B and C Admitted to Erciyes University Hospitals

Öz:
Objectives: This study was conducted to determine the knowledge, attitudes, behaviours and risk perceptions about the disease of relatives of patients with chronic hepatitis B and C. Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 121 relatives of patients with chronic hepatitis B and C admitted to Erciyes University Hospital, Infectious Diseases Outpatient Clinic between December 2016 and June 2017 were included. Results: The mean age of the participants was 44.0±14.5 years. Sixty-four participants were male (52.9%) and 83.5% were married. 61.2% of the patients had hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and 38.8% had HCV infection and 67.8% of the relatives stated that they lived in the same house with the patients. When the relatives of the patients were asked what type of hepatitis they knew, 92.6% stated that they knew HBV, 86.8% said they knew HCV and 79.4% said they knew both HBV-HCV. 26.4% of the participants did not know hepatitis. Approximately one-quarter of the relatives did not know what hepatitis B carrier is. 52.1% of the patient’s relatives stated that they felt at risk for hepatitis infection and 69.4% stated that they had hepatitis tests and 48.8% had HBV vaccine. 38.7% ohose who did not have vaccination stated that they did not intend to have the vaccination. Conclusion: Although the majority of the patient’s relatives knew the basic ways of transmission of hepatitis B and C, their level of knowledge about other risks of transmission in their daily lives was insufficien

Erciyes Üniversitesi Hastanelerine Başvuran Hepatit B ve Hepatit C’li Hasta Yakınlarının Hepatitler Hakkında Bilgi Düzeyleri ve Risk Algıları

Öz:
Amaç: Bu çalışma Erciyes Üniversitesi Hastanesi, Enfeksiyon Hastalıkları Polikliniği’ne başvuran kronik hepatit B ve C’li hasta yakınlarının hastalıkla ilgili bilgi, tutum, davranış ve risk algılarını belirlemek amacıyla yapılmıştır. Gereç ve Yöntemler: Kesitsel ve tanımlayıcı nitelikteki bu araştırmaya, Erciyes Üniversitesi Hastanesi, Enfeksiyon Hastalıkları Polikliniği’ne 2016 Aralık-2017 Haziran aylarında başvuran kronik hepatit B ve C’li hastaların 121 yakını dahil edilmiştir. Bulgular: Katılımcıların yaş ortalaması 44,0±14,5 yıl olup, 64’ü erkek (%52,9) ve %83,5’i evlidir. Hastaların %61,2’sinde hepatit B virüs (HBV), %38,8’inde ise HCV enfeksiyonu mevcut olup yakınlarının %67,8’i hastalarla aynı evde yaşadığını belirtmiştir. Hasta yakınlarına hangi hepatit türünü bildikleri sorulduğunda %92,6’sı HBV’yi, %86,8’i HCV’yi ve %79,4’ü HBV-HCV’nin her ikisini de bildiklerini belirtmiştir. Katılımcıların %26,4’nün hepatitleri bilmediği görülmüştür. Hasta yakınlarının yaklaşık dörtte biri hepatit B taşıyıcılığının ne olduğunu bilmemektedir. Hasta yakınlarının %52,1’i kendini hepatit bulaşması yönünden risk altında hissettiğini ifade etmiş ve %69,4’ü hepatit testlerini ve %48,8’i HBV aşısını yaptırdığını belirtmiştir. Aşyaptırmayanların %38,7’si ise aşı yaptırmayı düşünmediğini ifade etmiştir. Sonuç: Hasta yakınlarının büyük bir çoğunluğu hepatit B ve C’nin temel bulaşma yollarını bilse de günlük yaşamlarında karşılaşabilecekleri diğer bulaşma riskinin olduğu durumlar hakkındaki bilgi düzeyleri yetersizdir
