Effectiveness of Organised Teaching Programme on Knowledge regarding the Risk Factors and Prevention of Cervical Cancer among BSc Nursing First-year Students of Selected Institute of Srinagar
Keywords:Teaching programme, Knowledge, Effectiveness, Cervical Cancer
Background: India has the highest number of cervical cancer cases worldwide, according to the International Agency on Cancer (IARC). In India, cervical cancer accounts for an estimated 1,32000 new cases and 74,000 fatalities per year.
Method: The study used a quantitative pre-experimental strategy with a one-group pre-test post-test design. Using a non-probability purposive sampling technique, 60 BSc students at the Madre-Mehran Institute of Nursing Research and Science, SKIMS, Soura, District Srinagar, were chosen.
Results: The mean knowledge score after the test was higher than the mean knowledge score before the test. This demonstrates the efficacy of the structured teaching programme in improving the students’ understanding of the risk factors and prevention of cervical cancer. The pre-test knowledge score showed a significant relationship
with demographic variables such as father’s educational status and information source, but no statistically significant relationship was seen with gender, mother’s educational status, type of family, family’s monthly income, or residence at the 0.05 level of significance.
Conclusion: According to the study’s findings, first-year BSc nursing students lacked sufficient understanding of the causes and methods for preventing cervical cancer. It was discovered that the structured teaching programme was successful in enhancing their knowledge.
