Design. A quasi-experimental design was used to guide this study. The study included a sample of 30 nurses
who work at pediatric intensive care and neurology unit in Assuit University Children Hospital.
Data were collected using a questionnaire and an observation checklist, used in pre-post testing to measure
the effectiveness of the training program among nurses.
Results: The study revealed deficiency in pre-intervention nurses’ knowledge and practices. Statistically
significant improvements on knowledge and practices were demonstrated at the post-intervention time for
the studied nurses. Statistically significant relations were shown between knowledge and practices among
studied nurses.
Conclusion: Implementation of the training program significantly improved nurses’ knowledge and practice.
