Sažetak

The aim of research was to investigate: the need for health care information of Croatian adolescents aged from 13 to
18 years; the difference in evaluation of the frequency of receiving information between hospitalized and healthy children;
if the hospitalized children expectations about the frequency of receiving health care information differed significantly
from information they have actually received; whose information was most comprehensible to the hospitalized
children (doctors, parents, other health care givers). The children were either hospitalized in the pediatrics departments
or were high schools pupils (healthy children). The hospitalized children »Completely agreed« (92.7%) with the statement
»When I am sick, I should receive information about my health« in comparison to the healthy children (85.1%). In
comparison to healthy children, the hospitalized children assessed that doctors, other health care givers and parents
should give them information more frequently. The experience of hospitalized children indicate that they received less information
then they have actually excepted. The information received from doctors was mostly in correlation with the understanding
of this information. We concluded that the children want to be informed about their health, especially hospitalized
children. Health care professionals should offer understandable health care information according to the children’s
expectation.
