A Study to Assess the Effectiveness of Structured Teaching Programme on Knowledge regarding Caffiene Withdrawal Symptoms among Professionals in Selected Automotives, at Bharatpur
Abstract: Caffeine can increase mental alertness at work or while studying and can enhance performance on certain mental tasks. In addition to alertness and mental performance, caffeine may also improve memory and reasoning in sleep-deprived people. Physical dependence on caffeine is evidenced by the occurrence of the caffeine withdrawal syndrome upon abstinence following chronic caffeine use. Physical caffeine dependence is distinct from the clinical caffeine dependence syndrome, although they are sometimes mistakenly equated. Clinical dependence is not required for physical dependence. And, while physical dependence is one potential criterion for a diagnosis of clinical dependence, the former is neither a necessary nor a sufficient condition of the latter. The study is based on evaluative approach; one group pretest post test pre-experimental design was used for the study. The sample of 60 subjects was selected by simple random sampling technique. The independent variable was STP on knowledge regarding caffeine withdrawal and the dependent variable was knowledge of the professional drivers on caffeine withdrawal. The Comparison of the knowledge level and the effectiveness of structured teaching programme were obtained by calculating the mean of pre test and post test with ?t? test. The mean pre test knowledge on caffeine withdrawal symptoms was 12.33 with SD ?2.81 while mean post test knowledge on caffeine withdrawal symptoms was 25.52 with SD ?1.57. The paired t test value shows significance at level of Significance Level of p ? 0.05.
