Pre-Experimental Study to Assess the Effectiveness of Structured Teaching Programme on Knowledge Regarding Stem cells and Umbilical Cord Blood Banking among Staff Nurses Working at Selected Hospitals of Ludhiana, Punjab
Abstract: Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that differentiate into specialized cells and can divide to produce more stem cells. Study Design and setting: Pre-experimental research design (Non-randomized research design) was used for conducting study in selected hospitals of Ludhiana, Punjab. Subject comprising of 60 staff nurses, selected by non- probability convenient sampling technique. Results: The MeanSD of post-test knowledge score of staff nurses (16.932.94) was higher than the MeanSD of pre-test knowledge score of staff nurses (9.51.46). The computed paired t value (18.12) was found statistically significant. Conclusion: It was concluded that structured teaching programme was effective as evidenced by the result of post-test knowledge regarding stem cells and umbilical cord blood banking among staff nurses. There was no significant association of demographic variables with knowledge regarding Stem cells and Umbilical cord Blood banking. So the STP was effective in enhancing the knowledge of staff nurses and the teaching programme had played a role in improving the knowledge of the staff nurses.
