OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of a patient education workshop on nurses: (1) communication skills; (2) Knowledge of patient-centered model, patient education process, and sense of preparedness to provide patient education. METHODS: Fourteen nurses attended a 2-day workshop on patient education based on a patient-centered model. Data on communication skills were collected by means of pre-/post-written dialogues and analyzed with the Roter Interaction Analysis System (RIAS). Data of nurses' knowledge and sense of preparedness were collected through a post questionnaire comprised of 5-point Likert scale items. RESULTS: Post-dialogues showed an increase in patient talking (P<0.001) and in patient-centered communication as indicated by the increase in Psychosocial exchanges (P=0.003) and Process exchanges (P=0.001). Nurses reported that the workshop increased "very much" their knowledge of the patient-centered model (mean=4.19) and patient education process (mean=4.69), and their sense of preparedness to provide patient education (P=0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Data suggest the efficacy of the workshop in developing patient-centered communication skills and improving nurses' knowledge and preparedness to deliver patient education. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: Training based on a patient-centered model and interactive learning methods should be implemented for nurses to improve their ability to deliver effective patient education.
