Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Aim: The objective of this study is to determine the relationship between “perceived care and rehabilitation”, and the “anxiety level” of hospitalized patients. This research also aims to determine the factors affecting this relationship.
Materials and Methods: This descriptive and cross-sectional study was conducted with 205 patients who diagnosed with any disease in Malatya Training and Research Hospital Internal Medicine Department. The participants were selected and admitted using a non-probability sampling method among the patients. Data were collected using patient introduction forms, perceived care and rehabilitation scale, and state-trait anxiety inventory.
Results: We identified a negative relationship between the anxiety of the patients and their perceived care and rehabilitation. The anxiety levels of the patients were slightly above the medium level. Some features such as the education level, income, and inpatient duration of the patients had an impact on the perceived care and rehabilitation scales. The research also revealed that marital statuses, partnership, worries about the risks of the disease are some of the factors affecting the perceived care and rehabilitation, and the anxiety level of the patients.
Conclusion: The research analysis revealed that the improvement in the perception of care and rehabilitation decreases the level of anxiety. Customizing patient care according to the personal experiences of each patient and managing the health care process in this context may decrease the anxiety level and thus may improve the health of the patient.

Keywords: Anxiety; hospitalization; inpatient care; patient; perceived care and rehabilitation
