Sample and sampling technique
In this study sample size was 40 primary care giver of psychiatric patient who take typical antipsychotics. Sampling refers to the process of selecting the portion of the population to represent the entire population
Knowledge questionnaire is used to gather information.
Validity and reliability
Reliability of the tool is a major criterion for assessing the quality and accuracy. It is the degree of consistency with which it measures the attribute. Reliability analysis was done by KR20 formula, The reliability coefficient correlation for structured knowledge questionnaire was 0.70 To obtain content validity of the tool, the prepared tool with synopsis, planned on side effects of typical antipsychotics, evaluator's response sheet and content validity certificate were submit to 14 experts in the field of psychiatric nursing and psychiatry.

The comparison between the mean difference in pre-test and post test score was 8.2. The calculated ‘t ‘ value was 13.71, whereas the tabulated ‘t ’value was 2.02, shows that the calculated ‘t ’value was much higher than the tabulated ‘t ’value. It shows that the planned teaching was effective in significant improving the knowledge of primary care givers of psychiatric patient regarding side effects of typical antipsychotics, so the null hypothesis H0 is rejected and the research hypothesis H1 is accepted.
