- Purpose: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the current status of discharge education and nursing needs of children after musculoskeletal surgery. Methods: The literature from research databases was reviewed and analyzed (using PubMed, RISS review, KISS, and Dbpia). Results: Children who have undergone musculoskeletal surgery face physical challenges due to the effects of splints and immobilization, and experience pain for a long time. Therefore, home care after discharge is of paramount importance in these cases. The discharge education needs of each patient vary with regard to the topic and period. Discharge education should be systematic and consistent, with an emphasis on understanding the needs of the patients and parents. Conclusion: While there are studies on the nursing needs of adult musculoskeletal surgery patients at discharge, studies on discharge nursing needs in children who have undergone musculoskeletal surgery are still insufficient. It is necessary to specifically identify the educational needs of parents of children undergoing musculoskeletal surgery. Interventions that improve the voluntary participation of patients and parents in active self-care need to be developed.
