Effectiveness of Structured Teaching Programme on Knowledge and Anxiety of Patients Undergoing Endoscopy at a Gastroenterology Centre of a Tertiary Care Hospital
Smitha Thomas | V Sugirtha 
Abstract: Endoscopic procedures are OPD procedures which limits the time for the interaction of patients and health team members. Inadequate procedural & sensory information leads to anxiety among the patients that inadvertently affects the outcome of the procedure. A pre experimental study with a single group pre-test post-test design was used for 50 patients undergoing planned, diagnostic upper GI endoscopy for the first time. On the day of appointment, structured questionnaire and STAI was administered. Structured teaching programme on the various aspects of upper GI endoscopy was administered along with a pamphlet for later reference. Data was again collected using the same tools on the day of procedure. The mean pre and posttest knowledge score was 3.62 1.95 and 8.2 1.21 respectively. Wilcoxon-s signed rank test yielded a -Z- value of 6.19 ( p value <0.0001). The mean pre test and test anxiety score of the patients was 44.30 3.96 and 41.40 4.48 respectively. Wilcoxon-s signed rank test yielded a -Z- value of 3.67, (p value <0.0001). Structured teaching programme resulted in increased knowledge and decrease in anxiety score.
