Abstract

An experimental study was conducted with 224 nurses in the experimental group and 40 in a control group to evaluate the implementation of an education and training package in the management of leg ulceration. A knowledge and reported practice questionnaire was completed before and after an educational intervention was received by nurses in the experimental group only. There was no difference between groups in the initial scores. Following the implementation of the education and training package, nurses in the experimental group achieved a significant increase in score from 25 to 34. There was no change in score in the control group.
