Introduction: lacking the interaction and anger controlling skill while facing the aggressive behaviors of neuropsychiatric patients cause stress in nurses..
Objective: The present study investigated the effect of interaction skill training and anger management on nurses’ exposure to aggressive behaviors of patients admitted in psychiatric wards of selected military hospitals.
Materials and Methods: This quasi-experimental study was a randomized clinical trial conducted in selected hospitals of Aja University of Medical Sciences during the years 2018-2019. Fifty-eight nurses were selected by census method and studied in control and test groups. The teaching materials included lecturing, using PowerPoint and Q&A in eight sessions. The effect of training anger control and interaction skill before and immediately after the intervention and two months after the intervention was assessed using a standard questionnaire. Data were analyzed by SPSS 20 using independent statistical t-test, Fisher’s exact test and Friedman test. Significance level was considered P<0.05.
Results: The result from Fisher exact test in both groups showed no significant difference in terms of reaction to violence before the intervention (P>0.05), immediately after the intervention (P>0.05) and eight weeks after the intervention (P> 0.05).
Discussion and and Conclusion: After the intervention, nurses showed a more favorable reaction to aggression than before the intervention, although these changes were not statistically significant. It seems that making a great change in this area requires more prolonged intervention. Thus, it is recommended that training interaction skills and anger controlling be included on the agenda of nursing managers with other training methods. Further studies with a higher sample size are recommended.
