Abstract

*Sr. Teena Kavungal

ABSTRACT

The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding prevention of dental carries among primary school children in a selected school at kollam district. The objectives of the study were to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on prevention of dental carries among primary school children, and to find out the association between pretest knowledge scores regarding prevention of dental carries and the selected socio demographic variables. Pre-experimental, one group pre test post test group design was used with 30 samples. The data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study findings revealed that in the pre test 20% had average knowledge and 80% had poor knowledge. After the structured teaching programme in the post test 93.33% had good knowledge, 6.67% had average knowledge. The calculated paired “t” test value was 19 and the table ”t” value was 2.05. There was no significant association between the pretest knowledge score and selected demographic variables (χ2 >0.05) Thus It was concluded that there was a significant improvement in posttest score when compared to pre-test score, so the structured teaching programme on prevention of dental caries was effective among primary school children.

Keywords: Structured Teaching Programme, Dental Caries, Primary School Children.
