ABSTRACT
The article specifies the importance of psychosocial preparation of children undergoing day surgery. Children face the risk for high preoperative anxiety and lack of cooperation resulting into the negative impact of surgery to their psychological condition. It is highly recommended that clinicians should implement a comprehensive program of preparation for children and parents including giving specific information about the procedure, enhancement of coping systems and trust in the medical staff.
