Abstract: Background: Now-a-days, Cell phones are going to be an integral part of our daily life but harmful uses of mobile phones can lead to physical, psychological, and social health issues. Aim: This study aimed to assess the effectiveness of educational training regarding knowledge on the negative impact of mobile phones among undergraduate students and to find out various factors associated with it. Materials & methods: A quantitative research approach with Quasi Experimental, Non-randomized Control group Design and Non-probability purposive sampling technique was used to select 60 undergraduate students (30 experimental and 30 control groups) from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India. A Self-structured knowledge questionnaire was used for assessing the knowledge among the subjects. SPSS version 25 was used for data analysis. Results: The pre and posttest knowledge score regarding negative impact of mobile phones in the experimental group was significant (t=13.8, p=0.001), but it was not significant (t=0.25, p=0.81) in the control group. There was a significant difference (t=10.4, p=0.001) in the posttest knowledge scores between experimental and control groups. There was no association between knowledge score about negative impact of mobile phones among undergraduate students with the demographic variables (p>0.05). Conclusion: Educational training was effective to improve the knowledge regarding negative impact of mobile phones among undergraduate students.
