About this project
Those in need for bariatric surgery must apply a wide range of skills to access health care service, communicate with health care providers, understand different options and to be engaged in a shared decision-making. Health care providers expects the individual to understand medical terms, medical jargon, and to navigate in the health care system.
The project investigates self-efficacy and health literacy in group undergoing bariatric surgery. It is a longitudinal cohort based study. The results are linked to registry data from the Scandinavian Obesity Surgery Registry (SOReg).
