Objective: The objective of the study is to construct a training course for physical restraint (PR) evidence-based practice project and apply it to verify its effect.
Methods: A total of 162 nurses from five departments of a general hospital in Beijing were trained to compare the PR knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors of nurses before and after training.
Results: The nurses were satisfied with the overall curriculum; the total scores of PR' knowledge, attitude and behavior of nurses after training were higher than before, and the difference was statistically significant (P < 0.05); the total scores of nurses who received evidence-related training before this training were higher than those of nurses who did not receive relevant training, and the difference was statistically significant (P < 0.05).
Conclusion: Continuing education can effectively improve nurses' knowledge, attitude, and behavior level of PR, ensure patient safety, and promote physical and psychological rehabilitation of patients.
