AbstractThe purpose of this DNP project is to assess staff knowledge pre- and post-education on the benefits of play to enhance self-soothing in the inpatient child psychiatric population. A one-group, pre-test/post-test designed was utilized to assess knowledge before and after evidence-based education on the benefits of play. A convenience sample was obtained from the Hawaii Chapter of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association (n=5). Participants indicated deficits concerning the benefits of play (ƒ=40%, n=2) as well as economic impact of childhood mental health care (ƒ=40%, n=2), indicating the need for further education on current evidence on the benefits of play.
