Abstract

Aim: To evaluate the differences, following intervention training, in the knowledge, attitudes, role perception, self-capacity and intention of urology staff to counsel inpatients on smoking cessation. Design: A descriptive evaluation study of intervention training in counselling on smoking cessation. The study was designed following guidance by the Medical Research Council. Methods: The evaluation was based on a closed-end questionnaire with four time-point measurements from May 2018–December 2019 (N = 29 at each time-point). A repeated measure within-subjects ANOVA was conducted to explore the variance in participants' attitudes, role perception, self-capacity and intention to counsel patients regarding smoking cessation. Eta squared and Bonferroni post hoc tests were used to interpret the results. Results: No change was observed in the research variables after theoretical science-based learning of the smoking hazards and the benefits of cessation. A statistically significant difference was found following procedural knowledge based on training, practical experience and skill development.
