Data obtained using the data collection form and the Patient Leaning Needs Scale (PLNS) were analyzed by frequency, mean, standard deviation, Kruskal Wallis and student-t tests. The mean age of the patients was and 76.1% were females. The PLNS total mean score was , with the maximum score of on the subscale of treatment and complications and the minimum score of on the subscale of feelings related to condition.
