抄録

This study described the nurses’ current knowledge and perceived relevance and capability in performing skills related to the prevention and control of leptospirosis in the City of Manila, Philippines, utilizing cross-sectional descriptive design. A total of 103 nurses working at the barangay health centers participated in the study. The results showed that nurses had a mean score of 72% in the knowledge part of the assessment, indicating good knowledge on leptospirosis and high-perceived relevance and capability in the performance of the skills except in the collection of samples from contaminated environments. The nurses’ perceived capability to perform the skills is slightly lower than the perceived relevance of the skills. An educational program reorienting the nurses on leptospirosis control and treatment guidelines particularly the administration of antibiotic prophylaxis, and a training program in collecting environmental samples is recommended to address the nurses’ low perceived capability in these particular areas.
