Statement of the study:- A Study to Assess the Effectiveness of Origami on Selected Manifested Behaviour among Hospitalized Children in Paediatric Wards of PIMS, Puducherry Introduction: - Play is vital for a child’s sensory, motor and cognitive development. Play is a diversional activity which reduces stress in children. Hospitalized children will regress with the skills that they had previously mastered. This concept helps to minimize the emotional trauma to the children and their parents for better adjustment during hospital stay. For carrying out these diversional measures the child doesn’t need any sophisticated toys, instead can do with waste papers or colour papers, which is very cheap and easily available. Making handicraft/ origami toys do not require a separate play room or special playing toys. It can be carried out in the bedside itself. Moreover, the investigators own creative thoughts of making origami/ handicraft toys during childhood also motivated and created interest in the investigator to carry out this study. Materials and Methods: -The study was quasi-experimental study with an evaluative approach. The study was conducted in Paediatric wards of P.I.M.S. Data collection period was one month. Population was hospitalized children. Samples were, children admitted in Paediatric ward, aged between 6-10 years. Randomized sampling technique was used to allocate children into experimental and control group. Sample size was 66(33 children in each experimental and control group). The tools used for data collection were demographic variables and behaviour observational checklist. Three point scale to assess the behaviour of the children. Results: -The findings shows that, 23(69.7%) children in the experimental group and 2(6.1%) children in the control group have never exhibited the manifested behaviour during post-test as when compared with the pre-test. There is statistically significant difference between the pre-test and post-test level of manifested behaviour among experimental group and control group (p<0.001 level).There is no statistically significant association between pre-test level of manifested behaviour with the selected demographic variables of experimental and control group. Conclusion:-The study findings reveal that origami helps children to adapt better to unpleasant situations, especially during hospitalization. This healthy adaptation promotes quick recovery from their illness.
