Effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding selected obstetrical emergencies among nurses working in labour room, antenatal & postnatal wards

Amruta Bhise and Ashwini Khope

Obstetric crises are medical conditions that put the lives of pregnant mothers and their newborns in jeopardy. From conception until birth, a severe problem affects around 15% of all pregnant women. Nurses must be able to combine competence, compassion, and critical thinking in order to be successful. Essential traits for caring for a woman with an obstetric crisis must be had by midwives, and they must be developed.
Objectives of the study: 1 to assess the pretest level of knowledge regarding selected Obstetrical Emergencies among nurses working in labour room, antenatal & postnatal wards. 2. To assess the post-test level of knowledge regarding selected Obstetrical Emergencies among nurses working in labour room, antenatal & postnatal wards. 3. To assess the effectiveness of structured teaching programme regarding knowledge of selected Obstetrical Emergencies among nurses working in labour room, antenatal & postnatal wards. 4. To find association between knowledge regarding selected Obstetrical Emergencies among nurses working in labour room, antenatal & postnatal wards with their selected demographic variables.
Methods: The study was Quasi-experimental in nature. The research approach adopted for the study was Quantitative research approach. Sample consisted of 60 staff nurses working in labour room, antenatal & postnatal wards. Non probability convenient sampling technique was used for the collection of data.
Results: In the present study during the pre-test, the maximum mean percentage obtained by the sample is found in the aspect of Cord prolapse (46.57%), followed by Pregnancy Induced Hypertension (40.72%) and least mean percentage (26.63%) obtained in the aspect of Postpartum Haemorrhage. The overall mean percentage obtained in the pre-test was 22.55%. In the present study during the post-test, the maximum mean percentage obtained by the sample is found in the aspect of Pregnancy Induced Hypertension (54.61%), followed by Cord Prolapse (50.14%),and least mean percentage obtained in the aspect of Postpartum Haemorrhage (30.45%). The overall mean percentage obtained in the post test was 27.91%.
Conclusion: The conclusion drawn on the basis of the findings of the study shows that the structured teaching programme was effective in improving the level of knowledge of the staff nurses working in labour room, antenatal & postnatal wards. Furthermore, it is recommended that though there was improvement in the knowledge of staff nurses, more training programmes, in service education on obstetrical emergencies, specifically on postpartum hemorrhage, would be beneficial for the nurses as the mean knowledge score in the present study was the lowest in pretest as well as posttest.
