Abstract: Aim: To evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching program (STP) on knowledge regarding Dialysis Disequilibrium syndrome (DDS) among the staff nurses and to find the association between pre-test knowledge scores and selected demographic variables. Materials and methods: To achieve the study's goals, we choose the quantitative approach. The research design used in this study is a quasi-experimental pre-test-a posttest design.89 Subjects were selected using a convenient sampling technique. The fascinating knowledge was assessed by a pre-test, after which they received a structured teaching program on DDS. The post-test was performed over 2 weeks in the same tool after administration during the pretest. The structured teaching program covered Anatomy and physiology, definition, causes. Signs and symptoms, Clinical features and differential diagnosis, management and its prevention of DDS. The subjects of the study, nurses, were described in terms of percentages based on their demographics. Their understanding of the dialysis imbalance syndrome (DDS) was assessed in terms of percentages. The effectiveness of the structured educational program was interpreted by the matched student "t" test. The relationship between prior knowledge and demographic variables was evaluated and interpreted by ?2 (chi square). The above statistical procedures were performed with the help of the statistical package IBMSPSS Statistics-20. The P-values less than or equal to 0.05 (P?0.05) We're treated as statistically significant. Results: The effectiveness of structured teaching programme on the improved knowledge. At pretest, the mean knowledge was 15.7?4.3 and at posttest it was improved as 25.4?3.4 The mean improvement of knowledge 9.7?4.9 was statistically very highly significant (P<0.001). The conclusion Excellent knowledge score was seen among the staff nurses after the structured teaching programme which indicates that implementation of training programs are considered valid tools to improve knowledge and practice among staff nurses.
