Introduction: Considering the significant impact of disasters on public health, well-being and public welfare, disaster crisis management and “educating staff in the face of biological attacks, their symptoms and complications” needs to be considered.
Objective: The present study aimed to compare the effect of lecture training and crisis management training on nurses’ knowledge and attitude in the face of biological attacks.
Materials and Methods: The present study is quasi-experimental intervention study. A total of 60 nurses from two military hospitals in Tehran, who were randomly divided into two groups based on lectures and training packages, participated in the present study. Both groups underwent pre-test, post-test, and reminder tests ,and data were analyzed Fisher’s exact test, independent t-test and ANOVA (SPSS 20). Significance level was considered less than 0.05.
Results: There was no significant difference between the pre-test and post-test knowledge scores (3 days after the intervention) (P> 0.05) in both groups, but the mean knowledge scores of the reminder test (4 weeks after the intervention) in the lecture group (7.2 ± 2.27 )was higher than the that of educational package group (P<0.001). The mean scores of post-test attitude (3 days after the intervention) in the lecture group (58.2 ± 2.12) were higher than those of the educational package group (P<0.05), but the comparison of attitude scores in the reminder test (4 weeks later) the intervention did not show a statistically significant difference between the two educational groups.
Discussion and Conclusion: In general, lecture training and presentation of the educational package improve the nurses’ level of knowledge and attitude.
