A STUDY TO EVALUATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF STRUCTURED TEACHING PROGRAMME ON KNOWLEDGE REGARDING INTERPRETATION OF ELECTROCARDIOGRAM ( ECG) AMONG SECOND YEAR BSC NURSING STUDENTS IN SELECTED COLLEGE OF NURSING AT RAIPUR, CG.
Keywords:Electrocardiogram, STP, Knowledge, Student, Skills, Approach
Electrocardiography is the most commonly used diagnostic test in cardiology. If properly interpreted, it contributes significantly to the diagnosis and management of patients with cardiac disorders. Importantly, it is essential to the diagnosis of cardiac arrhythmias and the acute myocardial ischemic syndromes. Basic knowledge of the ECG is usually the most difficult to assimilate, as it implies learning the basis of interpretation. With technological advances, changes in provision of healthcare services and increasing pressure on critical care services, ward patients' severity of illness is ever increasing. Competency in cardiac rhythm monitoring is beneficial to identify changes in cardiac status, assess response to treatment, diagnosis and post-surgical monitoring. Every nursing student must be aware of the importance of correlating clinical findings after a complete examination with the ECG finding. A good basic ECG interpretation may rely on the ability to combine clinical skills with basic ECG interpretation.
The study is aimed at assessing the effectiveness of planned teaching program for second year BSc nursing students. Research design consisted of a pre-experimental approach with one group pre and posttest to evaluate the effectiveness of a structured teaching program. The population for the study was 60 second year BSc nursing students at selected college of Raipur. The non-probability sampling technique was used for data collection. The Closed –ended questionnaire was developed as tools. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to data analysis. The pretest knowledge score was 26.4% and after implementation of STP the students’ knowledge up to 71% regarding ECG.
