Abstract :

Objective: This study investigated the effects of tuberculosis (TB) educational intervention on school nursesâ?? knowledge, attitude, perceived behavioural control, and behavioural intention. Methods: A quasiexperimental one-group pretestâ??posttest design was adopted in this study. Participants were nurses at colleges who had attended the TB prevention workshop. The educational intervention workshop program included TB diagnosis and prevention, TB control on campus, and sharing of practical experiences. Data were collected using pretestâ??posttest questionnaires, and SPSS 20.0 was employed for data analysis. Results: There is significantly different between pre- and after test in knowledge (paired t=-9.41, p< .01), perceived behavioral control (paired t=-9.26, p< .01), and behavioral intention (paired t=-2.19, p< .05). However, attitude was non-significantly different between pre- and after test. The determinants that affected the behavioural intention in the post test were attitude and perceived behavioural control. Conclusion: Continuously providing prevention programs contributes toward the school nursing personnelâ??s knowledge, skills, and motivation for preventing tuberculosis. The major factors for behavioural intention were attitude and perceived behavioural control. Keywords: tuberculosis, quasi-experimental study, knowledge, attitude, perceived behavioral control, behavioral intention
