Abstract: Background: A quasi experimental study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of planned teaching programme on knowledge regarding the temporary contraceptive techniques among eligible couples in selected community areas, Kishtwar, Jammu & Kashmir. A total sample of 80 eligible couples were selected using the purposive sampling technique. The objectives of the study were to assess the knowledge regarding temporary contraceptive techniques among eligible couples before and after planned teaching programme and to find out the effectiveness of planned teaching programme on knowledge regarding temporary contraceptive techniques among eligible couples. The final objective was to determine the knowledge regarding the temporary contraceptive techniques and selected demographic variables. Materials and Methods: A two - group pre - test post - test design was used to conduct the study. A sample comprising of 40 eligible couples in experimental and 40 couples in the control group were enrolled using the purposive sampling technique. The conceptual framework used in the study was based on Imogene King?s Goal attainment model. Results: Data analysis were done using descriptive and inferential statistics. Findings of the study revealed that the mean post - test knowledge score 23.3?2.8among experimental group was significantly higher than mean pre - test knowledge score 11.9?3 (p<0.01). ?Paired t? value computed at 26.28** was statistically significant at p<0.01. Change in knowledge score among the control group was not significant (p>0.05 level). The ?t test? value (12.47**) revealed that, there was significant increase in the mean post - test knowledge score among the experimental group compared to the mean post - test knowledge score among the control group at 0.01 level. No significant association at 0.05 level was observed between knowledge with selected demographic variables. Conclusion: The findings of the study confirmed that the planned teaching programme was significantly effective in improving knowledge regarding temporary contraceptive techniques among eligible couples.
