Background & Aim: Non-immune injections are a health pill that is a constant threat to patient's safety. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effect of multimedia training program on Golestan nurses' attitudes about safe injections. Materials & Methods: In this semi-experimental study, 50 nurses were enrolled in a hospital in Golestan University of Medical Sciences. A demographic and researcher-made questionnaire was used to collect information. The attitude questionnaire was completed before the intervention by nurses. A multimedia tutorial on safe injection for nurses was then implemented. Six weeks after the intervention, the attitude questionnaire was completed by nurses. The data were analyzed by SPSS version 16 and Paired T test.
Results: The results showed that the mean and standard deviation of nurses' attitude toward safe injections before training was 7.8±7.41 and 92.30±7.39, respectively. In other words, paired t-test showed a significant difference between nurses attitude before and after intervention (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Based on the results, multimedia education contributed to the positive attitude of nurses towards safe injections. Therefore, it is recommended to reconsider the traditional nursing education method and to use a multimedia intervention that is cost effective and simple. It is used in the clinical setting.
