ABSTRACT

Introduction: The research work undertook was “A study to assess the effectiveness of video assisted teaching
programme on knowledge regarding reduction of secondhand smoke exposure among adults residing at
Pallithottam coastal area, Kollam”. The objectives of the study were to assess the knowledge regarding reduction of
secondhand smoke exposure among adults, to assess the effectiveness of video assisted teaching programme on
knowledge regarding reduction of secondhand smoke exposure among adults and to find out the association
between pre-test knowledge score regarding reduction of secondhand smoke exposure among adults and selected
demographic variables. Materials and Methods: The researchers used pre experimental one group pretest post test
research design. The study was conducted among 60 adults residing at Pallithottam coastal area Kollam. The
samples were selected by using non probability purposive sampling technique. The researchers collected the data
using self structured knowledge questionnaire and the data was analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics.
Result: The study results showed that the mean post test knowledge score 15.91 with SD 2.76 was significantly
higher than the pretest mean score 9.26 with SD 2.04 with a mean difference of 6.65 Since the calculated paired „t‟
value 16.41 was greater than the table value (1.67) at 0.05 level of significance. So video assisted teaching
programme was effective in improving the knowledge regarding reduction of secondhand smoke exposure among
adults. There was no significant association between pretest knowledge score and selected demographic variables
such as Age, Sex, Education, Occupation, Smoking habit, any smokers at home, exposure to passive smoking, days
per week of exposure, Place of exposure to second hand smoke, desired permitted smoking area at home and there
was significant association between pretest knowledge score and selected demographic variables such as education.

Keywords: Effectiveness, Video –assisted teaching programme, Secondhand smoke exposure.
