Abstract

BACKGROUND: Pressure ulcers can cause disability, which can lead to a default in patients' safety and results in frequent complications for patients. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to determine the effect of educational intervention on nurses' knowledge and attitude in preventing pressure ulcers. METHODS: In this study, 67 nurses of ICU wards at Ilam University of Medical Sciences were randomly assigned to the experimental or control group. Data collection tools included the demographic characteristics questionnaire, the Pieper Pressure Ulcer Knowledge test (PUKT) and the Attitude toward Pressure Ulcer tool (APuP). In the experimental group, the nurses were allocated into groups of four-five persons and for each group four face-to-face training sessions and two virtual training sessions by means of educational videos on bed sores were performed. Gathered data were analyzed using SPSS software version 16, and descriptive and analytical tests were performed. RESULTS: PUKT questionnaire score in the experimental group improved from 15.68 (3.42) to 29.75 (12.33) (P = 0.000), while in the control group it was 16.40 (3.13) and 17.54 (6.62) before intervention, which was not significant (P > 0.05). Furthermore, the APUP questionnaire score in the experimental group improved from 27.12 (2.13) to 39.37 (3.21) (P = 0.000), while in the control group it was 27.65 (1.71) and 28.37 (5.00) before intervention, which was not significant (P > 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Since educational intervention improved the knowledge and attitude of nurses in preventing pressure ulcers, it is required to conduct appropriate educational interventions to improve their knowledge and attitude.
