Providing education in medical procedures may ensure patients' compliance, reduce anxiety, and increase satisfaction. This randomized controlled research study was conducted to determine the effect of video-assisted education on anxiety and satisfaction given before an endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography procedure. A total of 70 patients participated between September 2017 and December 2018. Data were collected with the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory and the Visual Analogue Scale. Routine education was given to the control group, while routine education and video-assisted education were given to the intervention group. There was no difference between the state anxiety scores of the groups before the procedure ( p > .05). The state anxiety level of the intervention group was lower than that of the control group after the procedure ( p < .05). There was no significant difference between the trait anxiety scores of groups before and after the procedure ( p > .05). The postprocedure trait anxiety mean score of the intervention group decreased statistically significantly compared with the preprocedure mean score ( p < .05). The mean satisfaction score after the procedure was higher in the intervention group than in the control group ( p < .05). It was determined that video-assisted education decreased state and trait anxiety and increased satisfaction after the procedure.
