Abstract: Aim of the study: The study aims to find out the effect of Structured Teaching Module (STM) On Pin-Tract Infections (PTI) in External Fixation among Floor Nurses. Problem statement: What is the Effect of Structured Teaching Module (STM) On Pin-Tract Infections (PTI) in External Fixation Among Floor Nurses Serving in Selected Hospitals, Maharashtra? Primary objective: The primary objective of the study was to assess the effect of STM on knowledge regarding PTI in External Fixation among Floor Nurses. Secondary objectives: 1) To assess the knowledge of Floor Nurses on PTI in External Fixation in experimental and comparison group before intervention 2) To assess the knowledge of Floor Nurses on PTI in External Fixation in experimental and comparison group after intervention 3) To find out the effect of STM on PTI in External Fixation among Floor Nurses 4) To find out the association between post-test knowledge scores on PTI in External Fixation and demographic variables of Floor Nurses in experimental group. Method: A quasi-experimental design with non-randomized comparison group was used to assess the effect Structured Teaching Module (STM) On Pin-Tract Infections (PTI) in External Fixation among 150 Floor Nurses. The data was collected by using self-administered questionnaire. Results: From the findings, it was observed that the pre-intervention demographic variables of floor nurses in comparison and experimental group were more or less similar revealing both the groups had similar characteristics. It was observed that the percentages of knowledge (comparison group; 51.4% & experimental group; 47.5%) on pin-tract infection in external fixation among floor nurses were more or less similar before intervention. However, after an intervention, the percentage of knowledge on pin-tract infection in external fixation was significantly increased from 47.5% to 83.5% in experimental group whereas it was almost remained unchanged in comparison group. There was a significant difference (p<0.0001) between pre-test and post-test knowledge scores in experimental group. And, there was also a significant difference (p<0.0001) between the post tests of comparison and experimental group. No significant association (p>0.05) was found between knowledge on pin-tract infection and age, gender, religion, qualification, professional experience, & income of floor nurses. Interpretation and conclusion: The data were analyzed by applying descriptive and inferential statistic. The result of the study indicated that after intervention there was an improvement in the knowledge score. Analysis of data shows that highly difference found between the pre-test and post-test knowledge scores at the level of (p<0.05). The hypothesis proved and accepted.
