INTRODUCTION: Disasters are unavoidable situations that lead to financial and human losses. Iran due to its special situation is prone to natural and man-made disasters. Since hospitals face many injuries during disasters, managers must be prepared to deal with these conditions. Accordingly, this study aimed to determine the knowledge and attitude of public hospitals managers in Lorestan province about disaster preparedness.
METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, 158 senior managers of public hospitals in Lorestan province were selected by census method. The disaster preparedness knowledge and attitude questionnaire was completed by the respondents after the approval of the ethics committee and obtaining the necessary permits. Finally, data was analyzed with SPSS-25 and the significance level was P<0.05.
FINDINGS: According to the findings, mean score for knowledge of managers was 12.26 out of 25, and the mean attitude score was 66.18 out of 80. Among the studied variables, there was a significant relationship between age, disaster experience and knowledge. A significant relationship was also seen between the attitude and disaster experience. There was no significant relationship between knowledge, attitude and levels of management. Also there was no significant correlation between knowledge score and attitude.
CONCLUSION: The results showed that the knowledge of managers was moderate, and their attitude was good. Due to the important role of hospital managers during disasters, it is recommended that hold training courses in disaster preparedness, especially for young managers, to increase the knowledge of healthcare managers, and trainings be held more practically.
