Abstract
Background of the Study: Today world is in the grip of numerous, ferocious diseases. One of the prevalence is Cancer. Lung cancer is a disease which is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in the tissues of the lungs.
Aim of the Study: To assess the effectiveness of planned teaching program regarding the risk factors and prevention of lung cancer among patients.
Materials and Methods: The study was a Quasi-experimental one group pre-test post-test research design which consists of 60 patients who are admitted in general medical ward in R.R hospital, Bangalore. Structured knowledge questionnaire was developed in order to assess the knowledge regarding the risk factors and prevention of lung cancer. A time limit of 30 minutes was taken to each sample for pre-test and followed a planned teaching program for 30-45 minutes. The post-test was conducted by researcher after a period of one week using the same tool. The tools used for data analysis in this study were descriptive and inferential statistics.
Results: The findings of the study revealed that before implementation of planned teaching program, majority 37 (57%) of patients had average knowledge, 23 (43%) patients had poor knowledge. But after implementation of the planned teaching program, majority 57 (95%) patients had good knowledge (above 75%) and 3 (5%) patients of them scored average knowledge (50-75%) regarding the risk factors and prevention of lung cancer.
The Mean and Standard Deviation of the level of knowledge before implementation of planned teaching program regarding the risk factors and prevention of lung cancer among patients is 13± 1.89 and mean and standard deviation of the level of knowledge after implementation of planned teaching program was 26.73±1.40. There was highly significant between the mean level of knowledge scores before and after implementation of planned teaching program (t=58.34, df = 59) at a 0.05 level of significance. Hence, the accepted research hypothesis was H1 and null hypothesis H01 was rejected in this study. Therefore, it was concluded that planned teaching program was found effective to enhance the knowledge regarding the risk factors and prevention of lung cancer.
Conclusion: Based on the research findings, it was concluded that the planned teaching program gained and improved the knowledge regarding the risk factors and prevention of lung cancer.
