positive attitudes, and good practices about FAST, the rational model-based training was conducted. The aim

the control groups after training, with p values 0.009 and 0.000. There was no any difference in the retention

of knowledge, attitudes, and practices in both groups, the p value was 0.849; 0.626;0.456.
