Effect of a teaching plan on a nursing staff's knowledge of pressure ulcer risk, assessment, and treatment.


The authors, with this research, measure the effects of a teaching intervention, including information on risks, assessment, and treatment of pressure ulcers, on hospital nursing staff member's knowledge scores. The 100-item, true-false test had content validity, because items were based on current pressure ulcer literature. Five experts judged the test for accuracy, and two experts evaluated the congruence of the teaching intervention and test. Forty-eight subjects completed the experimental condition; 54 completed the control condition. The teaching intervention had a significant effect on knowledge scores.
