ABSTRACT:
Introduction: Diabetes increases the risk of coronary artery disease at least by two-to threefold in diabetic patients compared with non-diabetic patients. Improved management of modifiable risk factors of coronary artery disease reduces the chances of its onset. Objectives: 1. To assess the pre-test knowledge of patients with diabetes mellitus regarding modifiable risk factors of the coronary artery disease. 2. To evaluate the effectiveness of STP on knowledge of patients with diabetes mellitus regarding modifiable risk factors of coronary artery disease. 3. To associate the level of knowledge of patients with diabetes mellitus with the selected demographic variables. Hypothesis:H1:-There will be a significant different between the pre-test and post-test knowledge regarding modifiable risk factors of coronary artery disease among patients with diabetes mellitus in selected rural area of Mehsana district. H2: There will be significant association between level of knowledge regarding modifiable risk factors of coronary artery disease among patients with diabetes mellitus and the selected demographic variables. Design: Quasi experimental one group pre-test post-test design was used. Participation: 60 diabetic patients were selected using Non–probability convenient sampling techniques in rural areas of Mehsana District. Tool: Questionnaire was used to assess the level of knowledge among diabetic patients. Results: During pre-test the mean level of knowledge was 11.45 the standard deviation was 2.3697. During post-test, the mean level of knowledge was 15 and standard deviation was 2.0084. The obtained ‘t’ test value is 10.74. This value is significant at p<0.05 level. Conclusion: Structured teaching programme had increase level of knowledge of patients with diabetes on management of modifiable risk factors of coronary artery disease and thus structured teaching programme was proved to be effective.
