The Effect of Stoma Care Education on the Knowledge and Skill Levels of Pediatric Surgery Nurses

Overview

This project; It is a quasi-experimental prospective study in a single group pre-test post-test order. No randomization will be made in the selection of the sample, and 30 nurses working in the Pediatric Surgery Clinic in hospitals in Izmir and meeting the inclusion criteria will be included in the study. The data of the study will be collected through the Nurse Descriptive Characteristics Questionnaire and the Pediatric Stoma Care Knowledge and Skills Questionnaire. Pre-training introductory characteristics and pediatric stoma care knowledge and skill level of all nurses participating in the study will be measured. After the measurement, the nurses participating in the study will be given training on pediatric stoma care. Immediately after the training and three months later, the pediatric stoma care knowledge and skill levels of the nurses participating in the study will be re-measured. The introductory characteristics of the nurses involved in the project will be given as number and percentage distributions. Comparisons between nurses' introductory characteristics and Stoma Knowledge and Skills Questionnaire before and after education; It will be evaluated by non-parametric or parametric appropriate test. Comparisons between nurses' Stoma Knowledge and Skills Questionnaire scores in the pre- and post-education period will be evaluated by non-parametric or parametric appropriate test in dependent groups. The statistical significance value of the project was determined as p≤0.005. It is planned that the results of the project will mediate an international article and statement in which the effect of stoma care education on the knowledge and skill level of pediatric surgery nurses is presented. As a result of the project, if it is determined that stoma care education has an effect on the knowledge and skill level of pediatric surgery nurses, it is predicted that the quality of care of children with stoma who receive care in other institutions and organizations can be increased and the comfort of the child can be increased.
