Abstract
Objective: The study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of planned teaching programme on knowledge regarding menstrual hygiene among adolescent girls in selected village of Waghodia taluka. Setting: The study was conducted in selected village of Waghodia taluka. Design: A pre experimental one group pretest post-test design was used. Sampling technique: The samples of this study are selected by using simple random sampling technique. Sample: The sample for present study comprises of 60 adolescent girls from selected village of Waghodia taluka. Tools for data collection: The structured questionnaire was used as an instrument to measure the level of knowledge regarding menstrual hygiene among adolescent girls. Finding & Results: The finding of pre-test data showed that majority 78.3% of adolescent girls had inadequate knowledge and 21.7% of the sample had moderate knowledge. Findings of post-test data showed that majority 63.3% of the sample had adequate knowledge and 36.7% of the sample had moderate knowledge. The mean post-test knowledge score (23.10) also was higher than the mean pretest score (8.97). The comparison of pretest and post-test knowledge scores of adolescent girls shows the obtained ‘t’ value 25.51 is greater than the table value at 0.05 (2.00) level of significance. Therefore “t” valve is found to be significant indicating that there is a significant difference between pretest and post-test knowledge of adolescent girls. Chi-square test was calculated to find out the association between the demographic variables and the level of knowledge regarding menstrual hygiene among adolescent girls of selected village of Waghodia taluka. The findings indicates that all the variables such as Educational level (χ 2 =6.56), Family class (χ 2 =8.10), Age of menarche (χ 2 =12.50) were found to be significant at 0.05 level of significance. Thus it can be interpreted that there is a significant association between pre-test level of knowledge among adolescent girls with their selected demographic variables such as educational level, family class, age of menarche. Conclusion: So we can conclude that the planned teaching program on knowledge regarding menstrual hygiene has shown its impact as there is remarkable increase in the knowledge of adolescent girls regarding menstrual hygiene after providing planned teaching program.
