Abstract
Introduction: Teleconsultations are a useful approach for triaging patients and reducing unnecessary visits to emergency departments. Scheduled teleconsultations allow the evaluation, monitoring, and follow-up of outpatients who do not require face-to-face assessment. Teleconsultations bring multiple possibilities in the case of pandemic, where authorities may request or impose community isolation, closing of borders, limitation on the means of transportation, and so on, Teleconsultation in healthcare can be used to provide telecare, offer remote assistance, and help with administrative management of patients, triage, follow-up, meetings, and technical discussions among physicians in different locations, among others.
Methodology: To conduct research study in Narayan Institute of Agricultural Sciences, a written permission will be obtained from Dean-cum-Principal of the college before starting the study. Written consent will be obtained from the sample. Anonymity and confidentiality of the information will be maintained; in this study Quantitative research approach was used; pre-test post-test research design was used; in this study the variables used were Independent: Socio- Demographic Variables; Dependent STP; the study was conducted in Narayan Institute of Agricultural Sciences Jamuhar, Sasaram; the target population was B.Sc. Agriculture 4th year students; sampling technique was Purposive sampling technique; sample size was 60; Socio-Demographic variables & Self-Structured Questionnaire was used; the tool was submitted to 4 experts; Reliability of the tool was checked by Karl Pearson’s Formulae and the correlational coefficients r=0.75; 10% of the total sample fulfilled the inclusion criteria and were selected using purposive sampling technique; The obtained was analysed by Descriptive and Inferential statistics.
Results: The current study shows that the 5-point Likert scale was used to determine the level of knowledge among the samples, where majority of the sample depicted very aware at 36.6 placing them as adequately informed. Association was only found in the category gender, years of using phone, and preference during sickness [n=60 (0.004, 95%, df=4); n=60 (0.006, 95%, df=12); n=60 (0.02, 95%, df=4)] In this study data revealed that was found that, P value and statical significance: the two-tailed P value is less than 0.0001, by conventional criteria, this difference is considered to be extremely statically significant.
Conclusion: Among the available sample, majority of the sample depicted had pre-test knowledge of Unaware (n=27) 45%; Neither Unaware nor Aware (n=17) 28.33%; Aware (n=9) 15%; Very Unaware (n=7) 11.66%. Hence, majority of the population had below average knowledge and majority of the sample had post-test knowledge of Very aware (n=22) 36.66%; Aware (n=19) 31.66%; Neither Unaware nor Aware (n=11) 18.33%; Very Unaware (n=5) 8.33%; Unaware (n=3) 5%. Hence, majority of the population had above average knowledge, so there was significant effectiveness of STP on teleconsultation. Association related to socio demographic data and level of knowledge revealed that, for gender n=60 (0.004, 95%, df=4); age group n=60 (0.89, 95%, df=4); annual family income n=60 (0.82, 95%, df=12); occupation of father n=60 (0.60, 95%, df=12); use of smartphone n=60 (0.74, 95%, df=8); years of using phone n=60 (0.006, 95%, df=12); preference during sickness n=60 (0.02, 95%, df=4); area n=60 (0.29, 95%, df=8); experience of teleconsultation n=60 (0.50, 95%, df=4); association was only found in the category gender, years of using phone, and preference during sickness.
