Effectiveness of Structured Teaching Programme on knowledge regarding ill effects of cigarette smoking and its prevention among Adolescent Boys at Madurai

Waters EA, et al.,(2015) conducted a study to investigated the interrelationships among young adult smokers' beliefs about the nature of nicotine addiction and smoking- related affect and cognitions (i.e., feelings of risk, worry about experiencing the harms of smoking, self-efficacy of quitting, and intentions to quit). Smokers (n = 333) were recruited from two large universities. Results showed that quit intentions were associated with feelings of risk, but not with worry or self-efficacy. Furthermore, higher feelings of risk were associated with lower beliefs that addiction is an inevitable consequence of smoking and with lower beliefs that the harms of smoking are delayed. This suggests that it is important for health messages to counter the possible negative effects of messages that strongly emphasize the addictiveness of nicotine, possibly by emphasizing the importance of quitting earlier rather than later. The findings also add to the evidence base that feelings of risk are powerful predictors of behavioral intentions. Furthermore, our results suggest that in some circumstances, feelings of risk predict quit intentions beyond that predicted by worry and self-efficacy. Gaining additional understanding of the tobacco-related beliefs that can increase feelings of risk and incorporating those beliefs into educational campaigns may improve the quality of such campaigns and reduce tobacco use.

Effectiveness of Video Assisted Teaching Programme on Knowledge regarding prevention of child abuse among school teachers in Capron Hall Girls Higher Secondary school at Madurai District.

Keervann Walsh (2008) conducted a qualitative study to identify and evaluate their child abuse and neglect knowledge among school teachers at New York.Selected a eight purposively selected early childhood teachers. Findings reveal that, in the absence of preservice and inservice education specifically about child abuse and neglect, early childhood teachers held and deployed knowledge in resourceful ways. They used, as a basis, their existing early childhood knowledge and adapted this knowledge by augmenting it with a range of personal and professional knowledge resources to fit their particular challenges and situations. This approach, however competent and innovative, also reveals shortfalls in knowledge. Implications of this research are drawn for child abuse and neglect curriculum development in initial and continuing teacher education including the case for specialist knowledge needed to establish teachers’ professional reputation for dealing capably with cases of child abuse and neglect.

Effectiveness of structure teaching programme on knowledge regarding identification of breast feeding related problems and its management among postatal mothers in selected hospitals, Madurai

Preidt Robert,. (2013) Were concluded Low breast-feeding rates may be linked to as many as 5,000 cases of breast cancer, nearly 54,000 cases of high blood pressure and almost 14,000 heart attacks among American women each year. But some experts question the study's methodology and maintain that more research is needed before drawing conclusions about lags in breast-feeding and women's health. The researchers, who used a simulated model to arrive at their conclusions, said the costs of premature death caused by illnesses related to low breast-feeding rates are $17.4 billion a year. The study, published online June 6 in the journal Obstetrics & Gynaecology, defines premature death as death before age 70, or more than 10 years before the average U.S. woman is expected to die. Only about 25% of U.S. women follow medical recommendations to breast-feed each child for at least one year, the researchers said. This low rate also is associated with $734 million more in direct medical costs for women and $126 million more in indirect costs each year, they said.

A study to assess the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding behavioral problems of children among primary school teachers in selected schools at Coimbatore

Behavioral and emotional problems in primary school-aged children can cause significant difficulties in children's healthy development. For many children, they are also predictive of long-term antisocial behaviors and mental health problems. Some children show symptoms that are consistent with diagnoses of Anxiety, Depression, Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Attention-Deficit Disorder (ADHD), and Conduct Disorder (CD) (American Psychiatric Association, 1994). As well as causing significant distress for children and families during their childhood, children with emotional and behavioral problems face an increased risk of low self-esteem, relationship problems with peers and family members, academic difficulties, early school leaving, adolescent homelessness, the development of substance abuse issues and criminality. A child’s personality is considerably influenced by the character and conduct of their parents. Surveys reveal that the parents are often more concerned about their behavior than about their physical well being (Robbinowits, 2011).

A Study to Assess the Effectiveness of Planned Teaching Programme on Knowledge Regarding Selected Neonatal Infections and their Prevention among Primi

Neonatal survival is a very sensitive indicator of population growth and socio-economic development. Each year in India over one million newborns die before they complete their first month of life, accounting for 30% of the world's neonatal deaths2. India’s current neonatal mortality rate of 44 per 1000 live births represents1.2 million children who die each year. Neonatal mortality is higher in rural areas at 49 per 1000 live births (vs 27/1000 in urban areas). There are important rural-urban and socioeconomic differences in the NMR. The NMR in rural areas is about one and a half times of that in urban areas (42.5 vs.28.5 per 1,000 live births).

There are still 215 million children caught in child labour. The number of children in hazardous work, often used as a proxy for measuring the extent of the worst forms of child labour, is declining, particularly among those below 15 years of age. The overall rate of reduction, however, has slowed. There are still 115 million children in hazardous work. Children’s work is declining in the Asia- Pacific region and in Latin America and the Caribbean, but it is increasing in sub-Saharan Africa. 8 India's Country Report states that the number of working children was estimated to be 17 million. 90% working children are in rural India. 85% of working children are in the unorganized sectors. About 80% of child labour is engaged in agricultural work. 25% of the victims of commercial sexual exploitation in India are below 18 years of age. According to the 2001 census, in Karnataka there were recorded 0.82 million child laborers', making it the seventh highest state in the country.

A study to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding prevention of “torch” infections during pregnancy among antenatal mothers in a selected hospital at Erode district

Curr women’s health rep (2002) states that Perinatal infections account for 2% to 3% of all congenital anomalies. TORCH, which includes Toxoplasmosis, Other (syphilis, varicella-zoster, parvovirus B19), Rubella, Cytomegalovirus (CMV), and Herpes infections, are some of the most common infections associated with congenital anomalies. Most of the TORCH infections cause mild maternal morbidity, but have serious fetal consequences, and treatment of maternal infection frequently has no impact on fetal outcome. Therefore, recognition of maternal disease and fetal monitoring once disease is recognized are important for all clinicians. Knowledge of these diseases will help the clinician appropriately counsel mothers on preventive measures to avoid these infections, and will aid in counseling parents on the potential for adverse fetal outcomes when these infections are present.
