The study subjects were selected by using purposive sampling technique. A self-structured interview schedule was used to assess the pre-test and post-test<br />knowledge of study subjects. After establishing validity and reliability (r=0.98) of the tool, pre-test was carried out on day 1st and on the same day, structured teaching programme was given. Post-test was carried out on 4th day.<br />Results: Highest number of study subjects (58.33%) belonged to age group of 25-30 years, maximum number of study subject were illiterates (31.77%) and house wives (56.77%), Equal number of study subjects belonged to rural areas and were from nuclear families (55%) whereas 45% of study subjects belonged to urban area and were from joint families.

The mean post- test knowledge scores of the study subjects regarding child abuse was significantly higher (53.76±2.45) than that of the mean pre-test knowledge scores (23.01±4.47) and t-test (56.10) was significant at 0.05 level of significance which indicates that there was significant difference between pre-test and post-test mean knowledge score. There was statistical significant association of the pre-test knowledge scores of study subjects with their demographic variables like educational status, type of family and occupation (p &lt;0.05).<br />Conclusion: The study concluded that the knowledge level of mothers of children regarding child abuse improved after the administration of structured teaching programme.</p> <p><strong>How to cite this article:</strong><br />Javid G, Kachroo M, Effectiveness of Structured Teaching Programme on Knowledge Regarding Child Abuse Among Mothers of Children Who Were Admitted in Paediatric Wards at SKIMS, Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir.

The self instructional module was only given to the experimental group and after 1 week post test was taken. In post test of experimental group knowledge score mean was 22.33, S.D. 5.827 and control group knowledge score mean was 15.50, S.D. 4.918. The post test score is higher than pre test score and the mean difference between experimental group pre test and post test was 8.53 and between control group pre test and post test was 2.24 so, the mean difference of experimental group was higher shows the effectiveness of self instructional module in the form of booklet.
