This study was done to investigate the DVT-related knowledge and compliance of hospital nurses.
A survey questionnaire was administrated to a convenience sample of 367 nurses working at 3 university hospitals and 4 general hospitals located in Busan.
The mean score of DVT-related knowledge was $16.86{pm}$3.40$ points out of 26, with a percentage of correct answers of 64.8%. The mean score of DVT-related compliance was $21.40{pm}6.42$ points out of 32. There was a significant correlation between hospital nurses' DVTrelated knowledge and compliance (r=.309, p=.000). The factors for predicting hospital nurses' DVT-related compliance included knowledge of treatment and care areas, the subcategories of DVT knowledge (${eta}$=.214), knowledge of the area of risk factors (${eta}$=.105), whether to perform DVT prevention and treatment based on protocols (${eta}$=.193), the existence of DVT protocols (${eta}$=.168) and the degree of interest in DVT (${eta}$=.102) and the total explanatory power of these was 21.3%.
To improve compliance on preventing DVT effectively, it is necessary to improve nurses' DVT-related knowledge and interest in DVT through appropriate education. And, it is necessary to develop standardized protocols and guidelines.
