Avinash Dhameriya


Abstract: Aim of the study: The study aims to find the effectiveness of self-instructional module (sim) on glasgow coma scale (gcs) among nursing personnel working in selected tertiary care hospitals. Problem statement: ?Does Self-Instructional Module (SIM) on Glasgow Coma Scale (GSC) is effective among Nursing Personnel working in Selected Tertiary Care Hospitals, Maharashtra.? Primary objective: Primary objective of study was to find out the effectiveness of self-instructional module (sim) on glasgow coma scale (gcs) is effective among nursing personnel working in selected tertiary care hospitals, Maharashtra. Secondary objective: 1) To assess the knowledge of nursing personnel on GCS in experimental and control group before intervention. 2) To assess the knowledge of nursing personnel on GCS in experimental and control group after intervention. 3) To find out the effect of SIM on GCS among nursing personnel in experimental and control group after an intervention. 4) To find out the association between post-test knowledge scores on GCS and selected demographic variables of nursing personnel in experiment group. Method: A quisi-experimental research design used for the study. It was conducted over 150 nursing personnel by using Non probability Convenient sampling technique. Results: In this study the findings, it was observed that the pre-intervention demographic variables of nursing personnel in control and experimental group were more or less similar revealing both the groups had similar characteristics. It was observed that the percentages of knowledge (control group; 52.3% & experimental group; 50.4%) on Glasgow coma scale among nursing personnel were more or less similar before intervention. However, after an intervention, the percentage of knowledge on Glasgow coma scale was significantly increased from 53.7% to 83.9% in experimental group whereas it was almost remained unchanged in control group. These was a significant difference (p0.05) was found between knowledge on Glasgow coma scale and age, qualification, professional experience, income & attended seminar/conference/workshop of nursing personnel. Findings of study revealed that the SIM on Glasgow coma scale in as a method of self learning was effective among nursing personnel working in selected hospitals, Maharashtra. Interpretation and conclusion: The findings of present study, it was concluded that the pre-intervention demographic variables of nursing personnel in control and experimental group were more or less similar revealing both the groups had similar characteristics. Percentage of knowledge and the mean scores of nursing personnel were more or less similar in both the groups before intervention. However, after an intervention, the percentage of knowledge and the mean scores of nursing personnel were significantly increased in experimental group whereas it was remained unchanged in control group. There was a significant difference between pre-test and post-test knowledge scores in experimental group. And, there was also a significant difference between the post-tests of control and experimental group. Thus, it was concluded that the SIM on Glasgow coma scale as a method of self- learning was effective among nursing personnel working in selected tertiary care hospitals, Maharashtra.
