Abstract

ABSTRACT: Background of the study: Anganwadi is a type of rural mother and child care center in India. They are started by the Indian government on 1975 as a part of Integrated Child Development Services program for the purpose to combat child hunger and malnutrition. A typical Anganwadi center should provide basic health care in villages. So, training of AWW on first aid would really help to preserve many young lives during emergency situation Objectives: 1.To assess the level of knowledge on first aid management of selected health emergencies of under five children among Anganwadi Workers before administration of VAT. 2. To assess the level of knowledge on first aid management of selected health emergencies of under five children among Anganwadi Workers after administration of VAT. 3. To determine the effectiveness of VAT on first aid management of selected health emergencies of under five children in terms of gain in knowledge score. 4. To find the association between Pretest knowledge score with selected baseline data (age, educational status, religion, marital status, years of work experience, family income, source of previous information, previously seen health emergencies) Methodology: An Evaluative research approach and Pre-experimental research design was adopted for this study. The sample size for this study was 100 Anganwadi Workers who were selected using Non probability purposive sampling technique. Data were collected using knowledge questionnaire regarding first aid management on selected health emergencies of under five children prepared by the investigator. The VAT was administered to the AWW. The post test was conducted after 7 days of VAT. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: This study findings show that the Pretest mean knowledge score was 13.92 and the posttest mean knowledge score was 20.76. It shows that there was a significant difference between the pretest and posttest knowledge score regarding first aid management on selected health emergencies of under five children among Anganwadi Workers as measured by ‘t’ test value (19.012) which was significant at 0.05 level of significance. Conclusion: The finding of the study shows that the knowledge of Anganwadi Workers was not adequate before the introduction of VAT. The Posttest knowledge scores showed significant increase in the level of knowledge. Hence the VAT was an effective method of improving the knowledge of AWW.
