ABSTRACT:
Smoking and smokeless tobacco use are almost always initiated and established during high school going children. More than 80% of adult smokers begin smoking before 18 years of age. The main objective of the present study is to assess the feasibility of preventing adolescent tobacco use with the help of a specially designed tobacco control program. There were 4,144 high school students who have participated in the first phase of the study. The prevalence of tobacco smoking and chewing habits were 9.85% and 2.24% respectively. Ninety-one percent had parental advice against tobacco use and only 3.79% expressed desire for future tobacco use. The final evaluation witnessed a sharp decline in the current tobacco use as 4.68%. We observed a statistically significant difference towards the future use of tobacco (p<0.001) and awareness about the ill effects of passive smoking (p<0.001) among boys and girls. Further a significantly increased knowledge was observed among boys compared to girls about tobacco and oral cancer (p=0.046). Hence the researcher felt the need to conduct research title on “A Study to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Structured Teaching Program on Knowledge regarding Ill Effects of Smoking among Students of Government High School of Bagalkot” .
