ABSTRACT:
Neonates or new-born are the most delicate group among kids as they are not able to express their feelings happiness, sad, pain or discomfort and their systems are immature, just starting to adjust to the extra uterine life. Mother plays an important role in identifying minor developmental deviations and early evidence of the disease process because she is constantly and closely watching her baby. The most common minor problems occur in new-borns are vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, breath holding spells, cradle crap, physiological jaundice ,hiccups, napkin rash, abdominal colic, oral thrush, erythema toxicum (new-born rash), milia, Epstein pearl ,neonatal acne, neonatal conjunctivitis etc. Neonatal infections and the minor problems is one of the major leading causes of death during the neonatal period. It can contribute up to 13-15% of all deaths during the neonatal period with the mortality rate reaching as high as 50% for infants who are not treated timely. Postnatal Mothers should be aware of common minor neonatal problems A quantitative approach was used to study the effectiveness of PTP on the knowledge regarding common minor neonatal problems and its management among postnatal mothers admitted in S .S hospital, Davangere, Karnataka. 30 postnatal mothers admitted in S.S Hospital were selected for the study by purposive sampling technique. Data was collected from samples using 2 tools those are socio demographic variables and structured knowledge questionnaire on common minor neonatal problems and its management. The investigator collect data from Postnatal mothers using structured knowledge Questionnaire. Investigator administers pretests questionnaires to the postnatal mother and then Structured Teaching Programme was given to the postnatal mother and post test was conducted from postnatal mother on 7th day after the intervention. The result revealed that the majority of postnatal mothers had average pretest scores that is 29(99%) and 1(1%) of postnatal mothers had poor knowledge regarding common minor neonatal problems. The mean knowledge scores in pre-test was 1.32 and SD was 0.469 and in post-test mean was 1.52 and SD was 0.499. So, it is evident that mean post-test knowledge score of postnatal mothers was significantly greater than their mean pre-test knowledge score. t’ {1199} = 10.572 at P < .005 level of significance. This shows that STP (structure teaching programme) on common minor neonatal problem and its management has enhanced knowledge on common minor neonatal problems. Calculated ‘p’ value is 0.0008 which is less than 0.05 hence there is association between level of knowledge and educational status of mother. Calculated ‘p’ value is 0.046 which is less than 0.05 hence there is association between level of knowledge and occupation of husband
