Ganesh BR, Madhura Bandekar


Abstract: Objectives: To evaluate the association between Knowledge, Attitude and Practice on Cardiovascular Disease among women population in Belgaum city, using the KAP questionnaire. Design: This was an observational study with non ? probability sampling design. Setting participants: Total of 210 healthy women were selected from general community in Belagavi. Intervention: The subjects were made to understand the questionnaire completely in the language they found easy. These outcome measures were subjective and were dependent on the individual?s knowledge, attitude and practice towards cardiovascular diseases. Measurements: A total of 210 healthy women within the age group of 25 - 35 years were included in the study. They were selected from general community in Belagavi city. Recruited were non illiterate young adult women without psychotic symptoms. Consented participants were given a set of validated KAP questionnaire. The values were obtained and analysed. Main Results: R? = 0.013 that means the linear regression explains 1.3% of the variance in the practice score which is the dependent variable by the knowledge score which is the independent variable. R? = 0.012 that means the linear regression explains 1.3% of the variance in the practice score which is the dependent variable by the attitude score which is the independent variable. R? = 0.012 that means the linear regression explains 1.3% of the variance in the practice score which is the dependent variable by the attitude score which is the independent variable. The regression outcome from results shows that practice score is weakly affected by the attitude score, practice weakly affected by knowledge score and attitude weakly affected by knowledge score. Conclusions: It is necessary to recognise the relationship between a subject?s knowledge, attitudes, and behaviour which have to be taken into account when planning any strategy for preventing disease.
