Data collection carried out with structured questionnaire and entered to SPSS software. Data analyzed by t-test, paired t-test and Man-Whitney test in significant level of 0.05. Mean of total score of knowledge, attitude and practices (KAP) showed a significant difference before and after training and the total score of KAP increase (p < 0.05). But KAP score variation and their subscales were same in two groups and didn't show any significant difference (p > 0.05). Although KAP in Arak physician is appropriate and any educational program increase their KAP level, but continuing and repetition of educational courses seems to be necessary.
