Effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding boosting fertility in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome in selected hospitals, Anekal


Dr. Sukanya, Shilpa N

Background of the Study: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels. The ovaries may develop numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) and fail to regularly release eggs. The exact cause of PCOS is unknown. Early diagnosis and treatment along with weight loss may reduce the risk of long-term complications such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease, Infertility. Since it is one of the cause for infertility, we have to educate the women about boosting fertility in PCOS for their own use as well as others. The study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching program on knowledge regarding boosting fertility in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome in selected hospitals, Anekal”. Objectives: 1. To assess the existing knowledge regarding boosting fertility in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome in selected hospitals, Anekal. 2. To evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme regarding boosting fertility in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome in selected hospitals, Anekal. 3. To find the association between pre-test knowledge scores and their selected demographic variables in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome. Methods: The research design used in the study was pre-experimental one group pre-test and post-test and non-probability purposive sampling technique was used to draw sample. The data was collected from 30 PCOS women using the structured interview schedule. STP was conducted and post test was administered after 7 days using the same structured interview schedule to find out the effectiveness of STP. Results: The overall mean percentage knowledge score in the pre-test and post-test were 50.2 % and 83.2% respectively. Enhancement mean percentage knowledge scores was found to be 33.0%. The statistical paired ‘t’ test indicates that enhancement in the mean percentage knowledge score was found to be significant at 0.05 level for all aspects under study. The association found to be partly significant between pre-test knowledge scores and selected demographical variables at 0.05 level (<0.05). Interpretation and Conclusion: The study findings suggested that structured teaching programme is an effective instructional method in improving the knowledge of PCOS women.
