Neelam Lodhi | R. G Mathur | Anugrah Milton [2]


Abstract: Introduction: This study evaluates the effectiveness of a structured teaching program in preventing uterine prolapse among multipara women in a selected rural community in Delhi. It quantitatively assesses changes in knowledge and practices post - intervention, highlighting significant improvements and the potential for widespread application. Material and methods: The Research approach adopted in the present study was quantitative and research design was pre - experimental. Purposive sampling technique was used to select the sample for the study. The sample size was 100 of multipara women. Data were collected using a structured knowledge questionnaire schedule through multiple questionnaire. Analysis of data was done using descriptive statistics as mean, standard deviation and inferential statistics as chi - square test. Result: This study significance lies in its potential to inform healthcare practices and policy making for addressing uterine prolapse, a prevalent issue in rural communities, through effective educational interventions. The mean post - test knowledge scores (14.96) and pre - test knowledge scores (11.23) of the multipara women regarding prevention of uterine prolapse, it is also evident that mean and median falls close to each other both in pre - test and post - test, hence the both distribution are normal. The SD of the post - test knowledge scores is 2.44 which is lower than the SD of pre - test knowledge scores 2.49 suggesting a more homogenous group after administration of structured teaching program and The mean post - test score was 23.59 which was higher than the mean pre - test score 21.49 as evident from ?t? value of 8.176 at 0.05 level of significance. The practice of multipara women was found to be improved after the administration of structured teaching plan. There was positive relationship between post - test knowledge score and post - test practice scores of multipara women as evident from ?r? value 0.463, found statically significant at level of 0.05 level.
