Abstract

This study aims to assess the level of knowledge and adherence to evidence-based practices among nurses in managing pre-eclampsia in pregnant women. Once preeclampsia is diagnosed, evidence-based interventions may reduce the risk or severity of maternal and infant health outcomes of preeclampsia. A descriptive study design was utilized and conducted at the obstetrical and gynecological department of the General Hospital, Lahore. Convenient sampling was used. Three tools were used for data collection: A self-administered questionnaire, an Observational checklist, and a Modified Likert scale. There were more than one-third of studied nurses(41.7%) had an average level of total knowledge, less than two-thirds of studied nurses (65%) had a satisfactory level, and more than half of studied nurses (53.4) had a high level of knowledge for the management of pre-eclampsia. It is recommended that nurses’ awareness regarding pre-eclampsia be improved by involving them in educational programs to encourage them to participate in patients’ daily care.
