A study to assess the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding first aid for burns and it’s prevention in under five children among B. Sc. nursing second year students of SAM College of nursing, Bhopal
Children are the future of every country and all societies strive to ensure their health and safety. Since India’s independence, continuous efforts have been made to improve the status of children. The large burden of communicable, infectious and nutritional disorders is gradually on the decline due to massive efforts and investments by successive Indian government, even though it is an unfinished agenda. Parallel to these changes, it is also becoming apparent that children saved from disease of yesterday are becoming victim of injury on road, at home and in public, recreational places. Children are naturally curious. As soon as they are mobile, begin to explore their surroundings and play with new objects, at the same time though, they come into contact with objects that can cause severe injuries playing with fire or touching hot objects can result in burns. This is a debilitating condition accompanied by intense pain and long term illness that creates suffering not only for the child but for the wider family and community. A burn is defined as an injury to the skin or other organic tissue caused by thermal trauma, it occurs when some or all of the cells in the skin or other tissues are destroyed by hot liquids, hot solids or flames, radiation, radioactivity, electricity, friction or contact with chemicals are also considered as burns.
