The fast-track Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) program is short and compressed, and health information must be given over a short period of time. This poses high demands for patients’ learning capacity, and the preoperative information session is therefor a key component in preparing patients for successfully joining the program. Patients' health literacy may be improved with the use of animated information, as this seems to have beneficial effect on anxiety and learning ability. This study has compared the effect of a standard information session (SIS) and a standard information session supplemented with an animated video (SIS-a) measured on preoperative anxiety. The study included 91 patients in the SIS group and 59 patients in the SIS-a group, and showed that participation in both SIS and SIS-a had effect on the patients' preoperative anxiety. Furthermore, the results indicated that a baseline anxiety score above 30 millimeter measured on a visual analogue scale (VAS-A) score >30 may be a predictor of effect of participation in information sessions in general
