Subjects: Pressure ulcer/prevention & control, Intensive care, Knowledge
OBJECTIVE: The aim was to evaluate the effect of the educative interventions on nursing staff knowledge about pressure ulcer prevention in Intensive Care Centers (ICC). It is a descriptive-comparative study. METHODS: Data were collected from nursing team members before and after educative interventions using a knowledge test with true-false questions related to pressure ulcer prevention and description as a research instrument. RESULTS: Seven registered nurses participated in the pre-intervention phase only and obtained 86.4% of correct answers. The nursing assistants and technicians (n=25) obtained 74.3% of correct answers in the pre-intervention phase and 81.2% (n=36) in the post-intervention phase, showing improvement in the results after the intervention for this group. CONCLUSION: Even though the strategies used were not totally effective, as in some questions the rate of correct answers was below 70%. New interventions might be used to obtain greater staff adhesion and to improve their knowledge about the issue.
