Impact of Structured Teaching Programme on Biomedical Waste Management

A. Girija | D. Nidharshini

Abstract: Improper handling and disposal of healthcare waste can pose grave risks to both human health and the environment. This study, conducted at a prominent academic hospital in Hyderabad, sought to assess the impact of structured teaching programme on biomedical waste management among hospital staff in pre and post-operative wards. Quasi experimental research design is employed for the study purpose where 30 participants were randomly selected from pre and post- operative wards. Findings indicated that the surveyed staff exhibited an average level of knowledge concerning biomedical waste management. However, the implementation of a targeted teaching program led to a notable improvement in post-test knowledge scores compared to pre-test scores, underscoring the effectiveness of such initiatives. Paired t-test gave a significant result indicating structured teaching programme has improved the knowledge level of staff on bio medical waste management. This study highlights the pressing necessity to equip hospital staff in pre and post-operative wards with up-to-date training on biomedical waste management. Enhanced awareness is crucial, as inadequate comprehension of proper waste disposal practices can undermine the overall quality of healthcare waste management, compromising patient safety and environmental integrity.
