Inguinal hernia surgery is a common surgical procedure. The surgery can help patients live a normal life, but it may also cause complications. Therefore, knowledge about the prevention of complications for patients undergoing hernia surgery is vital. The purpose of this developmental research study was to develop video media for the prevention of complications for patients undergoing hernia surgery. The study participants were 42 patients diagnosed with an inguinal hernia who underwent hernia surgery. The study was conducted from March to October 2019. Research instruments included a development and design plan for the video media, a video media user opinion questionnaire, a demographic data questionnaire, a knowledge test on the prevention of complications of patients undergoing hernia surgery, and a video media satisfaction survey, all of which were validated by six content experts and three media experts. The content validity index of the knowledge test and the video media satisfaction questionnaire were .72 and .96, respectively. The efficiency of the video media was tested using one-to-one, small group, and field-based video media tests. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics.

            The research findings revealed that the video media has an efficiency of 1.27, achieving Meguigans’s standard criteria of 1.00. The user satisfaction of the video media was rated at the highest range for content, (mean 4.27-4.63), content design and presentation (mean 4.47-4.73), and usability (mean 4.67-4.70)

            The results of this study indicated that the video media developed for this study was effective in providing knowledge to assist in preventing complications in patients undergone hernia surgery.
