Abstract:

PIP: This survey was conducted at the Kenyatta National Hospital between March-June 1988 to assess the attitudes, basic knowledge and personal use of contraceptives among the nursing staff and to determine how these would influence family planning utilization in the country. In 1987, a similar survey was conducted among the physicians at this same hospital. A total of 432 nurses were interviewed; 64.4% of the nurses were currently using contraceptives and 7.7% had used them continuously. The IUD was used by 47.1% of the nurses. 62.3% of the nurses indicated that they would be able to discuss contraceptive use with their teenage daughters but only 29.6% would provide contraceptives. 66.7% of the nurses had extensive knowledge of contraceptives (over 60% knowledge) but knowledge concerning male contraceptives and newer methods such as Norplant was poor. author's modified
