A study to assess the of audio-visual learning package on knowledge regarding gastro-intestinal tract assessment among under graduate student nurses
Acute abdominal conditions are time-critical illnesses that need urgent surgical care. These are common, treatable conditions in high-income countries, but they remain important causes of premature mortality in India and many low-income and middle-income countries where access to surgical care remains poor. Objectives: To assess the knowledge of under graduate student nurses regarding GastroIntestinal Tract assessment, To find an association between pre test and post test knowledge scores regarding Gastro Intestinal Tract Assessment with selected socio demographic variables. Material & Methods: Evaluative research approach was used. Research design- Quasi experimental (one group pre & post test design). Study was conducted on 91 under graduate student nurses of 2nd year Basic. B.Sc. Nursing. Using Non Probability Convenient sampling technique. A structured knowledge questionnaire was used to assess the pre-existing knowledge on G.I.T assessment among U.G student nurses. The data was collected using pre tested self administered questionnaire. Frequency distribution analysis was performed. Result: The socio demographic data revealed that majority of the students 84 (92%) were in the age group of 18 – 20. The maximum number of respondents 56 (62%) were females. Majority of respondents 46 (51%) belongs to Hindu by Religion. Majority of respondents 43 (47.25%) coming from rural area. Most of the respondents 41 (45.05%) secured pass class in the first year university exam and majority of U.G student nurses 79 (87%) have not taken prior training regarding G.I.T assessment. Conclusion: It is suggesting that there was a significant difference of 8.19 which was the result of watching learning package on G.I.T assessment. Thus it was concluded that the Audio Visual Learning Package was effective method to improve U.G student nurses knowledge regarding G.I.T assessment.
