Introduction: Cardiac arrest is a common cause of death worldwide, that’s why World Health Organization emphasizes on BLS training to people in the community. This study aimed to compare two educational methods of BLS including face to face and displaying film among teachers.
Methods: This quasi-experimental study was performed in 2014 over 225 teachers in Takestan, Iran. Using the multi-stage randomly selected samples were assigned to 3 groups (2 experimental groups and 1 control group) and 75 individuals were in each group. The knowledge and skill of participants were assessed by a questionnaire and a checklist three times (before, right after and a month after the educational intervention) the theoretical and practical training was implemented for the face to face group. A CD with the same content of the training was given to the film group. Statistical data was analysed using SPSS software (version 16).
Results: There was no significant difference between groups in terms of demographical characteristics, mean score for skills and for knowledge prior to intervention. Statistical analysis showed that mean score for both skills and knowledge increased in both face-to-face and film groups after applying the intervention significantly (p˂0.05). There was no significant difference between the two educational methods (p value > 0.05).
Conclusion: According to the findings, both of the proposed educational methods can be used interchangeably for PBL training among teachers.
