Given the risks of error in the process of blood transfusion and the vital role of blood in restoring patients, it is of the utmost importance to find effective approaches for reducing the nurses’ functional errors. The present study aims to compare the role of multimedia and workshop training practices on the nurses’ performance in the field of blood transfusion. Methods: This study is a quasi-experimental study with a control group which was conducted in 2015. A total of 111 nurses working in oncology, emergency and surgery wards of three different educational hospitals were divided into three groups of 37 according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The data were collected through a two-section questionnaire including demographic information and Performance Assessment Questionnaire of Pourfarzad et al. on blood transfusion ,conducted 2 weeks before and after the intervention. The data were analyzed by SPSS version 20 based on using Chi-square, independent and paired t-test, Scheffe test, covariance, Kruskal-Wallis and ANOVA tests. Results: The results showed that the mean and standard deviation of performancescore before and after training was 68.87±4.61 and 78.26±3.06 in the workshop group, 70.36±7.06 and 79.0±78.91 in the multimedia group, and 71.35±2.74 and 71.1±2.52 in the control group. Both methods were statistically effective andthere was no significant difference between the results obtained through multimedia and workshop groups (p<0.05). Conclusion: Due to the equal effectiveness of both methods, the use of these methods for improving the performance of nurses in blood transfusion process is recommended.
