ABSTRACT:
The Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative policy aimed to improve hospital-based breastfeeding rates through the implementation of the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding. In India many hospitals still are lagging behind in implementing the policy due to insufficient staff, excessive tasks performed by nurses, lack of continuity in the health team work and insufficient knowledge of the staffs regarding the policy and find no time to educate mothers regarding the policy. The main objective of the study is to assess the pre-test knowledge level of staff nurses regarding Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative Policy in control and experimental group, to assess the post-test knowledge level of staff nurses regarding Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative Policy in control and experimental group, to compare the pre-test and post-test knowledge level of staff nurses regarding Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative Policy in control and experimental group and to determine the association between knowledge of staff nurses with their selected socio-demographic variables. The study was conducted on 60 samples selected by purposive sampling technique. Pre-test of both groups were taken, which was followed by Self Instructional Module for the experimental group. Post-test was taken one week after the Self Instructional Module in both groups. Descriptive and Inferential statistics were used in data analysis. The knowledge of staff nurses regarding Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative Policy was inadequate in pre test and whereas the knowledge was improved during the post test. Self instructional module was effective in improving the knowledge of staff nurses regarding Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative Policy. In control group there was no significant (tcal 0.67 less than ttab 2.05 at <0.05) difference between pre-test (12.50±2.29) and post-test (12.67±2.19) knowledge regarding Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative Policy. Whereas In experimental group there was significant (tcal 15.447 more than ttab 2.05 at <0.05) difference between pre-test (13.80±2.75) and post-test (21.67±2.32) knowledge of staff nurses working in obstetric and paediatric ward. Hence the research hypothesis was accepted and null hypothesis was rejected. The study concluded that self instructional module had significant impact on improving the knowledge regarding Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative Policy.
