Abstract: Title A study to assess the knowledge regarding plotting of partograph in view of assessing its implementation among the nurses of labour room in selected hospitals at Vadodara. Background The partograph provides information about deviations from the normal progress of labour and about abnormalities of maternal or fetal condition during labour. It alerts providers when a woman may need an intervention and facilitates ongoing evaluation of the effects of those interventions. There is a need to improve the knowledge on plotting of partograph as recording the progress of labour and motivate them to maintain partograph for a woman in labour as a routine practice for early detection of abnormal progress of labour, and appropriate clinical responses. Aims and objectives To assess the existing knowledge regarding plotting of partograph among the nurses of labour room. To evaluate the implementation of plotting of partograph among the nurses of labour room. To assess the correlation between the knowledge scores and implementation scores. To assess the correlation between the knowledge scores and implementation scores. Material and method A descriptive research approach was used and pre-experimental research design was used. A structured questionnaire was prepared and used to collect the data to assess the level of knowledge and practice checklist was used to assess the implementation scores. The investigator obtained written consent from the concerned authority before the study. Results Knowledge level of respondents shows that 63 % had moderate knowledge and 37 % had adequate knowledge. Practice level of nurses on Plotting of Partograph shows that 20 % has low knowledge and 80 % has moderate knowledge and no score for high practice level. Coefficient correlation of knowledge and practice scores is 0.797 which is significant at 5 % level. Hence, research hypothesis H1 is accepted. The association between knowledge scores and selected demographic variables, age group chi square value is 10.82 (p<0.05) which is significant. The chi square value was significant (x2= 4.41) at p<0.05 level for the gender and marital status. For the Educational qualification chi square value is9.49 at (p<0.05) which is significant. In years of experience and source of information the chi square value is 2.24 and 0.92 at (p<0.05) is not significant. Hence, research hypothesis H2 is partially accepted Conclusion Majority 63 % of the samples have moderate knowledge scores whereas 80 % has moderate practice level and no score for high practice level and Coefficient correlation of knowledge and practice scores is 0.797 which is significant at 5 % level. Further interventional studies can be implicated for adequate knowledge and high practice skills.
