Keywords:Stem cell transplantation, effectiveness, educational programme, knowledge, staff nurses
Introduction: The discovery of stem cells has led to a revolution in modern medicine. Stem cell research has been broadly explored worldwide to enhance human health in a medical setting. The study was conducted with the aim to improve the knowledge of staff nurses regarding stem cell transplantation. Stem cell transplantation is a greater positive impact
on the treatment of life-threatening diseases. Stem cell transplantation is a life-saving procedure for several malignant and non-malignant life-threatening diseases, more than 50,000 stem cell transplantations are being performed annually worldwide.
Methodology: A pre-experimental one-group pre-test and post-test design were used to conduct the study. 50 study subj ects working in selected areas of SKIMS (Clinical haematology, medical oncology and pediatric medicine) were selected by purposive sampling technique. Data were collected by administering a self-structured knowledge questionnaire.
Results: The majority of the study subjects 21(42%) belonged to the age group of 31-40 years, 40(80%) were females, and 37(74%) of the study subjects had B.Sc Nursing degree, a maximum of m 37(74%) study subjects had 1-10 years of working experience, and 44(88%) had textbooks as the previous source of information.
Conclusion: The findings of the study concluded that study subjects were having inadequate knowledge regarding stem cell transplantation. The educational programme was found effective in increasing the knowledge score of study subjects. The recommendations made were to replicate the study on a large sample.
