Abstract

The present study was aimed at determining the effect of video teaching on knowledge of mothers in prevention and management of selected mosquito borne fever.

Objectives

Objectives were to assess the pre-test and posttest level of knowledge of mothers’ in prevention and management of selected mosquito borne fever, determine the effect of video teaching on mothers’ knowledge in prevention and management of selected mosquito borne fever and find the association between mothers’ socio-demographic and clinical data variables and pre-test level of knowledge in prevention and management of selected mosquito borne fever.

Methodology

Quasi experimental, one group pre-test post-test design was used in the study. Forty mothers of children with fever admitted in paediatric medicine ward of JMMC&RI, Thrissur who met the inclusion criteria, were recruited by simple random sampling. Data were collected using structured knowledge questionnaire. The conceptual frame work was based on Health Belief Model.

Results

The present study revealed that among the 40 mothers, 32.5% were in the age group of 26–30 years, 27.5% were having plus two level education and another 27.5% had graduate and above educational qualification. Majority(55%) of the mothers were housewives and only 5% were labourers. Majority (45%) were Christians. More than half of the mothers (52.5%) were having nuclear family, 65% were having concrete house, 57.5% of the mothers were living in urban area and 47.5% were having a monthly family income of Rs. 15, 754-Rs. 31, 506. More than half (62.5%) of children were directly admitted to the hospital and 37.5% were referred cases. Among the mothers, 77.5% had previous exposure to information on dengue fever; of which mass media (35%) was the main source of information. The results showed that the mean post-test knowledge score (29.32 ± 2.86) was significantly higher than the mean pre-test knowledge score (17.50 ± 4.56) with p value 0.001. Significant association was found between socio-demographic and clinical data variables such as occupation (p =0.011), area of living (p =0.019), type of family (p = 0.049), monthly family income (p =0.001), type of admission to the hospital (p = 0.028) and previous exposure to information on dengue fever (p =0.008) and pre-test level of knowledge in prevention and management of selected mosquito borne fever.
