Effectiveness of video-assisted teaching on knowledge and practice regarding patient’s safety during transportation
AbstractTitle with purpose of the study:
The top agenda of all the accreditation cell of the hospital is “patient’s safety first”. But it has been observed that there is decrease in the patient’s safety during intra-hospital transportation of patient as there is less trained and lack of equipment outside the unit. “Effectiveness of video-assisted teaching on patient’s safety during transportation among transporters” with objectives effectiveness of video-assisted teaching on knowledge and practice, correlation between knowledge and practice, and association of findings with demographic data.
Material and Methods: Quasi-experimental non-randomized control group design was used. The theoretical framework adopted for study was based on Ludwig Von Bertalanffy’s General System Theory. Sample size was 60 selected by purposive sampling technique. Data collection was done by using knowledge questionnaire and observation check list. Tool was validated by 17 experts from various field of nursing. Reliability of tool was found to be 0.82 for knowledge questionnaire and 0.85 and 0.84 for practice observation section A(shifting of patient from bed to trolley and vice versa) and section B(shifting of patient from bed to wheelchair and vice versa) respectively. The pilot study was conducted and was found feasible.
Result: Result had shown great improvement in knowledge and practice after video-assisted teaching. In pre-test 73.33% transporters had average knowledge whereas in post-test 63.33% transporters had good knowledge about patient’s safety during transportation which suggests improvement in knowledge. The practice mean score is increasing from 6.73 to 9.8 and from 5.97 to 9.1 in practice section A & B respectively at 0.05 level of significance.
Conclusion: Thus video-assisted teaching shows, it was effective in both knowledge and practice regarding patient’s safety during transportation among transporters.
