Abstract
To investigate the knowledge, attitude, and behavior of nurses toward sexual guidance on patients after THR (total hip replacement) surgery, thus providing data for departments to develop nursing policies for patients after THR. A Web-based survey was completed by 92 nurses from the First Affiliated Hospital of Jinan University. Viability analysis was conducted to evaluate the questionnaire’s reliability. Data were collected and explored by descriptive analysis and analysis of variance to assess the knowledge, attitude, and behavior of nurses with different characteristics toward sexual guidance for patients after THR. The survey showed that the nurses with more working experience got a higher score on knowledge. And orthopedic specialist nurses score higher than non-specialist nurses. The difference was statistically significant (P <0.05). The attitude and behavior scores were very low among the nurses of all groups with different characteristics, they did not reach a total score of 60%, and there was no significant statistical difference between all groups (P> 0.05). In conclusion, the nurses with more working experience or specialize in orthopedic department have a good knowledge of sexual guidance on patients after THR. But nurses with different characteristics have a low score of attitude and behavior scores on of sexual guidance on patients after THR. The clinical department should improve training and emphasize the importance of sexual guidance on patients after THR.
