Abstract

Background and Aim: Military nurses are in the first line to confront with various crises. Therefore, their ability to coordinate and collaborate with other professionals involved in crisis and providing appropriate performance will play an important role in crisis management. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of crisis management education based on inter-professional approach on the ability of military nurses to deal with crisis in the selected military hospitals in Tehran. Methods: The quasi-experimental study was performed by convenience sampling of nurses from the selected military hospitals in Tehran and assigned to 3 groups randomly. Sixty military nurses participated in this study and were equally divided into 3 groups including experimental group 1 (inter-professional education) and experimental group 2 (uni-professional education) and control group. Intervention was organized over two twodays workshops of crisis management education in two theoretical and practical sections. Theoretical section was crisis management basics of HICS and practical section was table maneuver based on crisis scenario, that were held for both experimental groups 1 and 2 with identical conditions (educational content and Professors). The data were collected by nursing staff empowerment questionnaire with reliability of0.88 and analyzed by SPSS 22 software. Results: Sixty nurses with mean age of 34.8 and standard deviation of 6.9, with an average work experience of 11.7 years and a standard deviation of 6.6 were included in this study. 55 were male, 88.3 had undergraduate degree and 11.7 had master's degree. Nurses' ability to confront with crisis in the pre-test in all three groups was not statistically significant (P<0.05), whereas in the post-test statistically significant difference has been created between the three study groups (P<0.001). The mean of nurses' abilities with mean of 199.5 and standard deviation 19.17 was higher in experimental group 1 (inter-professional) than both experimental group 2 (uni-professional) and control group, with statistically significant difference. But no significant difference was observed between the control and experimental groups. Conclusion: Crisis management education based on interprofessional approach is effective in enhancing the capacity of the military nurses to deal with crisis and can be optimally used in educational planning in the military organizations.
