Effects of Multidrug-Resistant Organism Infection Control Simulation Program on the Infection Control Fatigue, Job Stress, and Performance of Nurses
Keywords:MDROs, Fatigue, Job stress, Performance, Simulation training.
Background: This study was conducted to develop a training program simulating multidrug-resistant
organism infection control for nurses and to verify its effectiveness.
Method: This was a randomized, control-group, pretest-posttest design study carried out with a total of
thirty-one nurses. A general lecture on theories was provided to the control group, while the developed
simulation training program was implemented for the experimental group.
Result: The results showed that the experimental group who received the multidrug-resistant infection
control simulation training program recorded higher infection control performance than the control group
who received lecture-based training (p=.029). However, there was no statistically significant difference in
infection control fatigue and job stress between the two groups.
Conclusion: It was found that the simulation training program is an effective intervention that can improve
the performance of infection control. Repeated research on diverse variables is necessary in the future in
order to continuously measure the effectiveness of the simulation training program.
