Surgical technologists were selected by stratified random sampling. Data collection was performed using the researcher-made questionnaire for the measurement of knowledge, attitude and practice of surgical technologists regarding the Sterile Techniques. The data was analyzed using SPSS software and applying descriptive statistics, Chi-square and t-test.
Results: The mean scores of knowledge, attitude and practice of surgical technologists regarding the sterile techniques, were 35.7±5.8, 28.3±3.7 and 38.7±6.5 respectively. The score of knowledge and practice was moderate and the score of attitude was good. Findings showed that there was a significant difference between knowledge and practice score with educational level and The mean score of knowledge and practice was significantly higher in the participants with bachelor’s degree as compared to the participants with associate degree(p<0.05).
