The valid and reliable instruments were a researcher-made questionnaire to evaluate the knowledge and Osipow's job stress questionnaire,‌ the intervention was an educational package to increase their knowledge and skills about the management of old age problems. The questionnaires were completed before, immediately after, one month and three months after the training.
