Objective: To determine the efficacy of workshop on body fluids in health and disease and its impact on nurses training Methodology: Nurses attended an interactive lecture-based workshop on body fluids in health and disease. Participants had to accept an invitation to the presentation prior to the training event. They completed a multiple choice question (MCQ) test, derived from topics covered in the presentation, prior to the lecture. The MCQ test was repeated after the lecture to assess retention and application of knowledge. Results: Thirty-six nurses participated in the workshop. There was a significant improvement in mean test scores after the lecture when compared with pre-lecture scores (Mean=30.9, SD=4.4 vs. Mean=11.7, SD=3.4, p<0.001). Pre-post data in according to the Kolmogorove- Smirnov test were normally distributed (Asy mp.sig.05, 0.02). Conclusions: Lecture based interactive workshop on body fluids in health and disease helps improve nurses' knowledge. It also helps in overcoming deficiencies in nurses training.
