Abstract

Introduction: The person with chronic disease is challenged to a continuum of adaptation to the new health-illness condition. The lack of knowledge is a barrier to the incorporation of therapeutic regimes, often complex ones, in their daily lives, and nurses play a facilitating role in the transition process

Objetive: Assessing knowledge about the pathology in people with IBD.

Methods: This is a descriptive, correlational and cross-sectional study, with a quantitative approach and convenience sampling. As a data collection method, we used an inventory entitled "Inflammatory Bowel Disease Knowledge (IBD-KNOW)", after translation and adaptation to Portuguese. Data analysis was performed using the SPSS® version 23 operating system.

Results: The average correct response rate to the IBD-KNOW was 57.1%. In the

reproduction" and "function" obtained the lowest values of correct answers, respectively 25.4% and 32.4%. correct answers, respectively 25.4% and 32.4%. There was a strong positive correlation between knowledge of IBD and age at diagnosis (r=0.717, p<0,02), a moderate negative correlation moderate negative correlation between IBD knowledge and education level (r= -0.513, p<0,01) and a weak negative correlation between the degree of knowledge and the age of

people with IBD (r=-0.201, p<0,017). Male persons have lower knowledge about IBD (H=1936, p<0,017), employment status has no influence on the level

of knowledge about IBD (p>0,7).

Conclusion: Most patients do not demonstrate knowledge about IBD, nor do they show adherence behaviors. It is becoming urgent to empower patients for therapeutic self-care with the implementation of the Nursing Consultation
