Author: Mohamed, Afaf Mohamed Taha
Abstract: Background :Mechanical ventilation is important to save life , but it can be hazardous ; Nurses understanding and knowledge is required .The objective of this study was to determine the effect of training programme on nurses knowledge and skills regarding mechanical ventilation care. Methods: Quasi pre-post test design was utilized. Forty intensive care unit nurses were recruited randomly. Those nurses give direct care to mechanically ventilated patients at five governmental hospitals in Khartoum state. The first step was to observe nurses during suctioning of endotracheal tube, this observation took one month to complete; following that two days’ workshop on mechanical ventilation care was done. At the beginning of the workshop a pretest questionnaire was distributed and the subjects were allowed one hour to complete the questionnaire. Then mechanical ventilation care modules were applied and immediately after completing the application of the training program the same questionnaire was distributed and one hour was given to answer the questionnaire. Practical demonstration of endotracheal tube suction was carried out on manikin. The practice was assessed for one month. After six months another posttest was done using the same observational checklist and questionnaire with the same steps Results: Seventy five percent of recruited nurses were Bachelor holders, while 25% were diploma holders. 80% were not trained, 35% had experience of one year or less. The effect of training programe on knowledge level showed mean score values of 23.48, 29.38, and 32.66 out of forty nurses in pre, post and follow up phases consecutively. This was not dissimilar for skill level, in which effect of training program showed mean score of 18.20 in pre test, 34.43 in post test versus 35.74in follow up out of the same forty nurses. In addition significance was revealed between pre, post and follow up score for both knowledge and skills (p=.000).More over Association was found between both knowledge and skill and their qualifications, year of experience, and training. Also Positive relationship between knowledge and practice of endotracheal tube was found Conclusion: Intensive care unit nurses had average and below average knowledge and skills.The training program assisted them in acquiring knowledge and skills. Training and continuous training for those who give direct care in critical care units is recommended.
