Effectiveness of an Educational Program on Nurses Knowledge regarding Active Management of Third Stage of Labor to Control of Postpartum Hemorrhage
Background: The effectiveness of an educational program on nurses' knowledge regarding active management of the third stage of labor to control postpartum hemorrhage is a critical area of research and healthcare intervention. The study aimed to assess the effectiveness of instructional program on nurses knowledge between study and control groups .
Methods: A quasi-experimental design, where study and control groups of adolescent girls underwent pre-test and post-test procedures. The study involved a questionnaire to collect data on socio-demographic variables and PCOS knowledge. The sample consisted of 60 nurses, divided into study and control groups. The validity and reliability of the questionnaire achieved through the pilot study. Statistical analysis using SPSS-24 was employed to identify knowledge differences between groups with a significance level of 0.05.
Results: The study found that nurses in the study group initially had a low level of knowledge about active management of the third stage of labor, but their knowledge significantly improved after participating in the educational program. However, the control group showed minimal improvement in their knowledge, and there were significant differences in knowledge levels between the two groups after the program, indicating the program's effectiveness in enhancing knowledge in the study group.
Conclusions: The significant improvement in knowledge following an educational intervention highlights nurses' capacity to acquire and apply new knowledge. However, the study also reveals the importance of ongoing reinforcement and clinical application for knowledge retention. Healthcare organizations should prioritize regular training and assessments to ensure competence in areas like active management of the third stage of labor, ultimately contributing to safer childbirth practices and better maternal outcomes.
