A Study to Assess the Effectiveness of Structured Teaching Programme among Staff Nurses working in ICU Regarding the Knowledge on Management of Patients with Myocardial Infarction in Selected Hospital, Bangalore

Monalisha Padhi

Abstract: This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of a structured teaching program in enhancing the knowledge of ICU nurses regarding the management of patients with myocardial infarction MI. The research utilized a pre-test and post-test design and was conducted in Sakra World Hospital, Bangalore. A sample of 60 ICU staff nurses participated, and data were collected through a structured knowledge questionnaire. The findings revealed that the majority of nurses had inadequate knowledge before the program, but post-program results showed a significant improvement in knowledge scores. Additionally, the study explored the association between knowledge scores and demographic variables such as age, years of ICU experience, exposure to MI patients, and sources of previous knowledge. The results indicated statistically significant associations between these variables and MI management knowledge. Overall, the study underscores the importance of structured teaching programs for enhancing the competency of ICU nurses in managing MI patients.
