This study examined the effects of nursing information provision using a booklet on the patients' anxiety and uncertainty with an endoscopic submucosal dissection before the procedure, which is a non-equivalent controlled pre-post test designed study. Twenty three patients in a control group received the existing intervention, which is the general education prior to the procedure without standardized format as well as an oral explanation, and 23 patients in the experimental group received nursing information with a booklet developed by the investigator of this study. The collected data were analyzed using a test and Fisher's exact t-test on SPSS 21.0. The experimental group reported significantly lower anxiety (t=3.319, p=.002) and anxiety behavioral responses (t=3.508, p=.001) than those in the control group. There were no significant differences in uncertainty between the groups (t=.745, p=.460). Nursing information using the booklet is a useful nursing intervention to reduce the anxiety of patients with endoscopic submucosal dissection before the procedure.
