Knowledge of post partum intra uterine contraceptive devices (PPIUCD) is important for antenatal mothers as an effective contraceptive and family planning method. Intrauterine contraceptive Device (IUCD) is one of the most commonly used reversible methods of contraception among women of reproductive age worldwide. The objective of the study is to assess the effectiveness of video assisted teaching programme regarding knowledge of post partum intrauterine contraceptive devices among antenatal mothers.
Pre-experimental one group pre-test post-test design was selected for the present study and conceptual frame work for this study was based on General System Theory Modified Ludwig Von Bertalanffy’s. The study had been conducted in selected areas at Rajkot district of Gujarat.
Non probability purposive sampling techniques had been adopted to select the desired sample. The sample size was 60.The study design depicts that a pre-test was given in the form of structured knowledge questionnaire on selected antenatal mothers at selected rural areas at Rajkot, after that as an intervention video assisted teaching programme was administered in two sessions & a post-test was given after 7 days to assess gain in knowledge using the same structured knowledge questionnaire.
Collected data was analyzed by using both descriptive and inferential statistical method. ‘t’ test and chi-square test was used to evaluate the effectiveness of video assisted teaching programme regarding knowledge of PPIUCD among antenatal mothers. The calculated ‘t’ value 43.89 is significantly higher than the table value 3.4632 at 0.05 level of significance. This indicates that there is significant difference between the pre test and post test knowledge score and video assisted teaching programme is effective in improving knowledge of PPIUCD among antenatal mothers.
