“A study to assess effectiveness of planned teaching programme on knowledge regarding preparation for motherhood among primigravida mothers in selected hospital”.
Objectives
1.To assess the existing level of knowledge regarding preparation for motherhood among primigravida mothers.
2.To assess the effectiveness of planned teaching programme on knowledge regarding preparation for motherhood among prmigravida mothers.
3.To find out the association between pre-test knowledge score regarding preparation for motherhood among primigravida mothers with their selected demographic variables.
Material and Methods: The research approach adopted in this study is quantitative evaluative approach. Pre experimental research design one group pre-test post-test design was chosen for the study. The sample were selected conveniently to suit the study.sample size was 100.
Results: The data was analyzed by using inferential and descriptive statistics on the basis of objectives.
1.Table no. 2 depicts the pre-test scores, 77% of Primigravida mothers in selected hospital had poor knowledge regarding preparation for motherhood, 23% mothers had average knowledge and no one had good knowledge. Average knowledge score at the time of pre-test was 9.40 with standard deviation of 2.31.
2.Table no. 3 reveals the post-test knowledge scores, 2% of Primigravida mothers in selected hospital had poor knowledge regarding preparation for motherhood, 66% mothers had average knowledge and 32% mothers had good knowledge. Average knowledge score at the time of post-test was 18.98 with standard deviation of 4.29.
3.Table no. 4 reveals that for the assessment purpose the total score of knowledge was divided in to three groups like poor (0-11 score), average (12-22 score) and good (23-33 score). Average knowledge score at the time of post-test was 18.98 with standard deviation of 4.29. The minimum score of knowledge was 10 with maximum score of 30.
4.Table no. 5 depicts the comparisons of the pre-test and post-test means of the knowledge were done by the paired t test. The pre-test average score was 9.40 with standard deviation of 2.31. The post-test average score was 18.98 with standard deviation of 4.29. The test statistics value of the paired t test was 31.63 with p value 0.00. The p value less than 0.05, hence reject the null hypothesis and accept the alternative hypothesis. Shows that, planned teaching programme on knowledge regarding preparation for motherhood among Primigravida mothers at selected hospital was effective.
5.Table no. 6 reveals that for the demographic variables educational status and source of information, the p value of the association test with knowledge was less than 0.05, hence reject the null hypothesis. Concludes that, there was significant association of the educational status and source of information, with pre-test knowledge scores regarding the preparation for motherhood among Primigravida mothers at selected hospital. While the demographic variables, age, religion, type of marriage and age at marriage, the p value of the association test with knowledge was more than 0.05, hence accept the null hypothesis. Thus, there was no significant association of these demographic variables, with knowledge regarding the preparation for motherhood among Primigravida mothers at selected hospital.
Conclusion: The knowledge of the primigravida mothers in selected hospital improved remarkably after planned teaching programme. It is necessary to be aware of such topics. Without this knowledge, health care practice and self-care are not of high standards. From the present study assesses the knowledge regarding preparation for motherhood among primigravida mothers in selected hospital. The study concluded saying that there was significant improvement in subject knowledge in the post-test after administration of planned teaching programme. Thus, planned teaching programme was found effective in improving the knowledge regarding preparation for motherhood among primigravida mothers in selected hospital. In the present study it was also found that there was no significant association of pre knowledge level with selected demographic variables.
