The goal of this project was to demonstrate whether or not an education session increased the comfort and preparedness of nurses with respect to discussing sexual resumption with patients who had suffered a myocardial infarction. A descriptive research design was utilized. The education presentation was the independent variable; the dependent variables were test scores and surveys that measured nurses' comfort level with the topic. Registered Nurses (RNs) were recruited to complete a test before and after the teaching program. A survey was included after the posttest. In order to increase the population, graduate student RNs were also recruited.
Thirty-seven participants were obtained. Telemetry RNs showed a 3.16 mean increase from pretest to posttest. The graduate students showed a mean increase of 3.65 from pretest to posttest following the teaching session. Overall, evaluation of scores showed that participants did increase their knowledge regarding sexual resumption.
