Assessment of knowledge, awareness and practice of surgical guilt among oral and maxillofacial surgeons

Author: SNEHA KRISHNAN, SENTHILNATHAN PERIASAMY, ARUN MURUGAIYAN
Abstract: The aim of this qualitative study is to assess the emotional experiences of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons pertaining to surgical guilt, their impact on their surgical practice and the strategies they use to combat them. A cross sectional questionnaire based online survey was conducted among Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons of different ages, experience, academic positions and geographical locations of practice, which included 20 questions. Data was collected through this questionnaire based survey. A total of 128 responses were received and analyzed independently. The answers described if they had experienced surgical guilt as an entity, its magnitude and prevalence in their practice, the influence of the institutional framework on them as well the contrivances they use to cope.In this study we observed that most oral surgeons were aware and had experienced surgical guilt as an entity which seemed to be influenced due a past surgical misadventure or inability to achieve the desired outcome. As a result, in the event of a complication most end up blaming the circumstances and are too harsh on themselves. Although complications are events that help in framing the life of an oral surgeon, the concern for possible complications is an oppressive experience, regardless of whether or not they actually occur. Within the limits of this study, it was demonstrated that awareness of surgical guilt as an emotional experience and their impact on their clinical practice is present among oral and maxillofacial surgeons in various geographic locations of practice.
Keyword: Surgical guilt; oral and maxillofacial surgeons; apprehension; complication; surgical misadventures; surgical failure; desired outcomes.
