Background: The services of emergency patients play a very important role based on the principle of ’time saving is lifesaving’. Gastrointestinal bleeding is one of the emergency cases that require all measures to be performed effectively and efficiently and to be provided in a short period of time. This study was conducted with the aim of investigating the effectiveness of an educational program in improving knowledge, performance and also reducing the response time of nurses in the care of patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding in the emergency department.
Methods: It was a quasi-experimental study with a single group pretest posttest design that was conducted at the emergency room of the Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS), New Delhi- India. A total of 20 nurses working in the emergency room were recruited through enumeration. Also, 35 and 35 events were observed before and after the intervention, respectively. The educational program was implemented through face-to-face lecture cum discussion in 6, 30-minute sessions and in groups of 3 to 4 nurses over three days. A researcher-made questionnaire was used to measure nurses' knowledge regarding upper gastrointestinal bleeding, and nurses' performance and response time were observed and measured through a checklist. The data were described and analyzed using descriptive statistics and Paired t-test, Kruskal-Wallis H Test and Mann Whitney U test in IBM SPSS Statistics 20. The significance level was set at P≤0.05.   
Results: A plainly improvement in the score of knowledge and practice and a significant decrease in the response time of nurses was observed (P<0.001). There was also a significant association between the knowledge score and the work experience of nurses in the emergency department (P= 0.018).
Conclusion:  According to the results of this study, periodic evaluation of nurses' performance in the care and treatment of upper gastrointestinal bleeding emergencies through observation and checklist is recommended. Also, holding in-service training courses regarding the management of upper gastrointestinal bleeding is considered necessary.
