Abstract: Background: The decision to transport a critically ill patient, either within a hospital or to another facility, is based on an assessment of the potential benefits of transport weighed against the potential risks. Critically ill patients are transported to alternate locations to obtain additional care, whether technical, cognitive, or procedural, that is not available at the existing location. Provision of this additional care may require patient transport to a diagnostic department, operating room, or specialized care unit within a hospital, or it may require transfer to another hospital.1Aims: The aims of study is to assess the knowledge regarding structured teaching programme on intra hospital transport protocol for critically ill adult patients among staff nurses in HSK hospital and research Centre at Bagalkot. Materials and Methods: Study approach - This was an evaluative study and follow the examination plan as pre - exploratory, for example one gathering pre - test and post - test without control group. The population associated with this investigation was staff medical caretakers working at HSK Hospital and Research Center at Bagalkot. Tests are staff nurses working at HSK Hospital and Research center at Bagalkot. Test size is 50 (Total) staff nurses were remembered for the investigation. Further information was gathered by organized shut finished information poll. Results: The overall finding reveals that the post - test mean knowledge score was 26.94 with SD?1.76 which is 84.18% of total score was more when compared to the pre - test mean knowledge score 15.8 with SD ?3.07 which is 49.37% of total score. The overall effectiveness of STP on intra hospital transport protocol for critically ill adult patients, mean score was 11.14 with SD ?1.31 which is 34.81% of total score Hence it indicates that the STP was effective in enhancing the knowledge of the staff nurses regarding intra hospital transport protocol for critically ill adult patients. As the calculated value was much higher than table value (1.96) hence the hypothesis H1 stated is accepted. Findings reveal that the difference between mean pre - test (15.8 ?3.07) and post - test (26.94 ?1.76) knowledge scores of staff nurses found to be statistically significant at 0.05 level of significance [t= 35.01, p<0.05]. There is no significant association was found between post - test knowledge scores of staff nurses with working area (X2=67.4, P<0.05), where as there is no association was found between post test knowledge scores of intra hospital transport protocol for critically ill adult patients among the staff nurses and their socio demographic variable like age, gender, religion, education, monthly income, and year of work experience of intra hospital transport protocol for critically ill adult patients. Conclusion: A significant difference was found between the pre - test and post - test knowledge scores of the staff nurses. The study proved that STP was effective in improving the knowledge of staff nurses onintra hospital transport protocol for critically ill adult patients.
