This study was conducted to determine the effects of the Human Caring Theory-based post-cesarean caring and pain management training on caring behaviors and caring outcomes. The sample consisted of 25 nurses, midwives and 208 women who had cesarean. Nurses and midwives were given training based on Human Caring Theory, which consisted of three sessions. Nurses and midwives caring behavior scores increased after the training. Midwives' self-rating scores, the rate of using a scale to assess pain and recording information on pain assessment increased. Caring satisfaction and perception of the caring behavior of women who had cesarean increased and their pain levels decreased.
