Abstract [en]

Healthcare workers may lack knowledge about antibiotic-resistant bacteria and thereby increase the spread of such organisms. The aim of the present study was to describe the relationship between self-rated knowledge and actual knowledge about methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) among 326 Swedish haemodialysis nurses. Data were collected through a postal questionnaire. The findings suggest that ongoing education about MRSA should be provided to haemodialysis nurses, but also that standardised evaluation of adequate knowledge, skills and competencies' regarding safe practices is warranted. Future research should focus on effective mechanisms to ensure that haemodialysis nurses provide safe MRSA care.
