Abstract
Thus breast cancer is most common cancer among women world by wide and it can be detected in right time at early stage through breast self- examination which increase chance of survival. The study aim is to assess the effectiveness of video assisted teaching programme on self-breast examination among women. A quantitative study was adopted for assessing effectiveness of video assisted teaching programme on self-breast examination among women. 100 samples who fulfilled the inclusion criteria was selected, using non probability purposive sampling technique. The data collection was carried out in three phases as pre assessment, intervention and post assessment phase. In the pre assessment phase. The pretest level of existing knowledge was assessed using a self-structured questionnaire consisted of 25 questions. In phase II, the women who completed pretest were given video assisted teaching program on breast self-examination using video which lasted for about 20minutes which included the signs and symptoms and steps of breast self-examination. In phase III, a post test was conducted after 7 days from the day of video assisted teaching program with the same self – structured questionnaire which was given in pretest. This table shows the frequency and percentage distribution of level of knowledge on breast self-examination among women. The pretest data illustrated that 90 (90%) of them had inadequate knowledge, 10 (10%) of them had moderate knowledge and none of them had adequate knowledge in post-test of women 88 (88%) had adequate knowledge, 12 (12%) had moderate knowledge and none of them had inadequate knowledge. Thus the study concluded that video assisted teaching program has an effect on improving the knowledge on breast self-examination among women.
