Knowledge of both groups was measured before and after the education. The satisfaction of participants with the course was measured using a questionnaire. The scores were compared within and between groups using the paired and independent t-test, respectively . 

  Results: The knowledge of both groups increased significantly after the intervention (P<0.001) however, there was no significant difference between the mean scores of the two groups after the education (P<0.05).
