Background & Aims: One of the occupational hazards and serious concerns among health workers is the damage caused by sharp objects and contact with discharge. It is one of the main elements in employees' feelings, abilities, and performance skills. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the effect of staff performance skills training on exposure to sharp objects and medical discharge in nurses working in emergency departments. Materials & Methods: In this quasi-experimental study, 90 emergency nurses of Khoy were completely counted in 2019 and then randomly divided into two groups: intervention and control. The intervention group consisted of 42 nurses working in the emergency department of Imam Khomeini Hospital and the control group included 48 nurses working in the emergency department of Qamar Bani Hashem Hospital. The nurses of the intervention group were divided into four groups based on the shift and working time of the nurses and were trained in 3 training sessions based on the model of self-awareness and empowerment in the amphitheater of Imam Khomeini Hospital. To collect information, the questionnaire was used before and after the intervention. The collected data were analyzed using SPSS software version 20 and non-parametric Chi-square tests. Results: Based on the findings, there was no statistically significant difference between the two groups with regard to sharp objects and secretions before the training program (p = 0.647). After the implementation of educational skills programs based on the model of self-awareness and empowerment, there was a statistically significant difference between the two groups (p = 0.024) and in the intervention group the rate of the exposure decreased. Conclusion: Research findings showed that the implementation of operational skills training programs based on self-awareness and empowerment development models allows nurses working in other departments to continue with your new components and their discharge. . It is recommended to use training programs in order to reduce and manage exposure to sharp objects in health care systems.
