Abstract: The present investigation was undertaken to study the effect of planned teaching programme (PTP) on knowledge about breast cancer and breast self examination (BSE) among the woman of reproductive age group in selected rural areas of Kamrup. One group pre-test post-test research design and multistage sampling technique was used to conduct the study. The sample size was 50. Pre-test was conducted by using structured self knowledge questionnaire regarding breast cancer and BSE and planned teaching programme was given on the same day. On seventh day post test was conducted. The collected data was analysed by using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study revealed that the mean post-test knowledge score regarding breast cancer and BSE was higher than the mean pre-test knowledge score. There was a significant difference between the mean post-test and pre-test knowledge score. From the present study it was concluded that most of the reproductive women had inadequate knowledge regarding breast cancer and BSE at pre interventional phase but after administering PTP on breast cancer and BSE the knowledge score of the reproductive women was increased. Hence PTP was effective teaching strategies in increasing knowledge about breast cancer and BSE.
