ABSTRACT:
The study was titled as “effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding life style modifications for the prevention of atherosclerosis among housewives.” The objectives of the study were to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding life style modification for the prevention of atherosclerosis and to find out the association between knowledge regarding life style modifications for the prevention of atherosclerosis among housewives with selected demographic variables. Quasi experimental pretest posttest control design was adopted for this study. The study was conducted in a community area of Pallithottam at Kollam district. The sample consisted of 60 housewives. Non-probability convenient sampling technique was used. Data were collected from the housewives to assess their existing level of knowledge by using structured knowledge questionnaire before giving structured teachingprogramme. Post test was conducted one week after administration of structured teaching programme, to assess their level of knowledge. The collected data were tabulated and analysed by descriptive and inferential statistics. The results showed that, the mean posttest knowledge score of selected sample in experimental group (14.53) was higher than the mean pretest score (8.47). Since the calculated ‘t’ value (14.43) was greater than the table value (2.05) at 0.05 level of significance, there was statistically significant difference between mean pretest and posttest knowledge scores in experimental group. The mean posttest knowledge score of selected sample in experimental group (14.53) was higher than the mean posttest score (8.47) in the control group. The calculated ‘t’ value (14.43) was greater than the table value (2.05) at 0.05 level of significance. This indicated that there was statistically significant difference between mean pretest and posttest knowledge scores regarding life style modifications for the prevention of atherosclerosis in experimental group. The study concluded that structured teaching programme was effective in improving the knowledge regarding life style modifications for the prevention of atherosclerosis among housewives.
