Background: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of ambulatory education on the basis of the Khadem National Program on the level of preparedness and awareness of the household in North Khorasan Province.
Methods: This research is a semi-experimental study with pre-test and post-test. The population of this study included 2185 families participating in the Khorasan (Bojnourd and Esfarayn) Khadem Program. First, a multi-stage cluster sampling was performed; in the end, 60 families were selected. Families responded to a questionnaire on knowledge and preparedness about natural disasters before and after the ambulatory education (Dougson, 2010). Families who undertook ambulatory educations based on national Khadem program were prepared with an awareness-based approach against risks, and t-pair, Chi-square, Mean comparison and McNemar test were used for data analysis.
Results: The results of t-pair test between the Recognition component of the scale of knowledge and preparedness about natural disasters (t = 1.26) and timely measure component (t = 2.14) and training component (t = 3.09) and the collaboration component (t = 2.07) showed a significant difference between the two groups (pre-test and post-test), meaning that the families who participated in the ambulatory education courses were rated higher in these four mean components, but in the component of the importance of the media, there was no significant difference between the scale of knowledge and preparedness about natural disasters, given that = 0.79. Also, according to the McNemar test, a significant difference was found in the form of assessment of family preparedness among the families after the ambulatory education of the Khadem Program (the level of significance was below 0.02); Chi-square test (X2) also showed that the ambulatory education courses of the Khadem program increases the amount of watching television and book associated with natural disasters.
Conclusion: This study suggests that brief group training proves to be effective in increasing the preparedness and awareness of the families against natural disasters and using these training (according to the Khadem Program) along with other training reduces the amount of damage and disaster caused by disasters.
