Before and three months after the education in the intervention group, Knowledge scores raised from 52.07 ± 9.7 to 81.09± 7.25, practice from 48.06 ± 10 to 53.94± 11.32, susceptibility from 61.72 ± 10.4 to 79.6± 9.6, severity from 66.33 ± 7.98 to 77.5± 6.88, benefits from 66.2 ± 8.51 to 76.78± 6.99, barriers from 58.84 ± 11.81 to 43.64± 10.57, cues to action from 26.61 ± 16.85 to 46.21± 16.05, and self-efficacy from 78/16 ± 9/33 to 93/32± 7/04. They were significantly different in the intervention group (p< 0.05), but not in the control group (p> 0.05).
