A fundamental part of any continuous improvement project is the appropriate information and education for the patient and his family. The expectations of a surgical intervention, of the perioperative course and of the experience of pain, can be different, according to the beliefs and previous state of anxiety caused by uncertainty and fear of the unknown, which can favor a less effective management of pain. This variability in the response to the surgical event can be optimized if the information of the entire process is provided objectively beforehand.

Three audiovisuals were created with the support of graphic designers from the Tecnológico y Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, Mexico City Campus. The first includes information about the anesthetic process, the second includes information about postoperative pain, its evaluation by the patient and management alternatives during hospitalization and discharge, and the third includes information about the myths and realities of the use of opioids as part of an analgesic strategy. This material is intended to be disseminated to the general population, through the website of the Mexican PAIN OUT Network for the optimization of perioperative pain management and the website
