A Study to Analyse the Impact of Structured Teaching Programme on Awareness of Adolescent Girls regarding Urinary Tract Infection
Keywords:Adolescent Girls, Urinary Tract Infection, Structured Teaching Program, Knowledge
Introduction: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common problem among adolescent girls causing much discomfort to them and leading them to drop out of school. Inadequate hydration, unclean toilets, and poor menstrual and sexual hygiene practices predispose an adolescent girl to UTI. An international survey reported that 8.1 million girls visit healthcare providers every year; a national family health survey reported a prevalence of 16.6% positivity for UTI among adolescent girls. MP survey reported in 2014, says 8% of adolescent girls are affected.
Method: The study was conducted from August 2019 to September 2019 at Neelbud rural community in Bhopal. The sample consisted of 60 adolescent girls selected through the non-probability purposive sampling technique.
Result: Investigators highlight the finding of the study that the mean value of knowledge score was found to be higher in the post-test (15.8) as compared to that obtained in the pre-test (11.8). A significant difference observed between pre- and post-test scores showed the efficacy of the selected STP.
Conclusion: The selected STP proved to be effective in raising the level of knowledge of adolescent girls regarding the management and prevention of UTI.
