This study aimed to investigate the promotional impact of educational intervention on behaviors of health care workers in Ilam province regading sharps injury prevention in 2012. Materials and Methods: In this quasi-experimental intervention study, 66 healthcare workers in health centers in the city of Dehloran (as the experimental group) and Abdanan (as the control group) were enrolled. The data were collected by a questionnaire completed by the participants, after the approval of its validity and reliability in two previous steps, and one month before the educational intervention. SPSS19 software was used to analyze the data using appropriate statistical methods.
