Abstract
Background of the study: Periodontal diseases are a group of infectious diseases caused by predominantly Gram-negative and anaerobic bacteria that induce local and systemic elevations of pro- inflammatory prostaglandins (PGE2) and cytokines [1].
Aim of the study: To assess the effectiveness of videos assisted teaching on knowledge regarding periodontal diseases as a risk for preterm delivery among adolescent girls.
Materials and Methods: The study was a Pre-experimental one group pre-test post-test research design. . Structured knowledge questionnaire was developed in order to assess the knowledge regarding periodontal diseases as a risk for preterm delivery. It was conducted at PU College with the sample size of 60 adolescence girls, selected by using simple random sampling technique and the collected data were analyzed and interpreted based on descriptive and inferential statistics
Results: The findings of the study revealed that before implementation of video assisted teaching program, majority 38 (63.3%) of adolescence girls had poor knowledge, 22 (36.7%) adolescence girls had average knowledge. After the implementation of the video assisted teaching program, majority 41 (68.3%) adolescence girls had excellent knowledge, 19 (31.7%) of them scored good knowledge regarding periodontal diseases as a risk for preterm delivery.
The Mean and Standard Deviation of the level of knowledge before implementation of video assisted teaching program regarding periodontal diseases as a risk for preterm delivery is 9.30±2.7 and mean and standard deviation of the level of knowledge after implementation of video assisted teaching program was 27.08±2.2. There was highly significant between the mean level of knowledge scores before and after implementation of video assisted teaching program (t=43.33, df=59) at a 0.05 level of significance. Hence, the accepted research hypothesis H1 and null hypothesis H01 was rejected in this study. Therefore, it was concluded that video assisted teaching program was found effective to enhance the knowledge regarding periodontal diseases as a risk for preterm delivery among adolescence girls.
Conclusion: Based on the research findings, it was concluded that the video assisted teaching program gained and improved the knowledge regarding periodontal diseases as a risk for preterm delivery among adolescence girls.
