Introduction: Ethics education can affect moral sensitivity. More objective-structured and evidence-based education using teaching aids, more moral sensitivity.
Objective: The current study aimed at investigating the effect of moral motivation training on moral sensitivity in nurses of Mashhad military hospitals, Iran.
Materials and Method: The current semi-experimental study was conducted in 2017. Two hospitals were selected in Mashhad using the non-random sampling method, and 20 nurses were selected from each hospital using the simple random sampling method. The demographic and the Han moral sensitivity questionnaires were completed by nurses before intervention, as well as immediately and 1 month after the intervention. Moral motivation training sessions were held over 2 consecutive days for the experimental group and the control group received no trainings. Data were analyzed with SPSS version 16 using descriptive statistical tests (mean, standard deviation, relative frequency, and absolute frequency) and analytical statistics (independent t test, t test, the Fisher exact test, the Mann-Whitney U, Chi-square, and duplicate sizes).
Results: The mean score of moral sensitivity before intervention in the experimental and control groups were 60.66±10.34 and 59.65 ± 14.87, respectively out of the total score of 100 (P= 0.178). The mean score of moral sensitivity in the experimental and control groups, immediately after the intervention, were 75.80 ± 5.606 and 60.40 ± 14.25, respectively; a significant difference was observed between the groups (P<0.001). the mean score of moral sensitivity in the experimental and control groups, 1 month after the intervention, were 73.85± 6.21 and 60.10± 14.19, respectively; a significant difference was observed between the groups (P= 0.001). There were significant differences between the mean scores of moral sensitivity in the intervention group in the 3 intervals (P<0.0001), while the mean scores of moral sensitivity in the same intervals showed no significant difference in the control group (P= 0.290).
Discussion and Conclusion: The present study showed that the moral motivation training, a combination of speech, group discussion, video presentation, and role play, was effective on nurses’ moral sensitivity. Therefore, researchers suggested including ethics training programs in nursing curriculums.
