The results show that only 38.4 of the subjects under the study had a good level practice and their attitudes in terms of age were significantly different (P<0.01). Also, their practice on job showed a significant difference (P<0.017). In the study, there was a converse relation between age and professional experience which was r = 0.25 and r = 0.26, respectively.
