Abstract

The main aim of the present study was “To evaluate the effectiveness of educational intervention on febrile seizure among the mothers of under five children at Primary Health Center, Podanur”. OBJECTIVES: 1. To assess the existing level of knowledge and practice on febrile seizure among the mothers of under five children. 2. To evaluate the effectiveness of educational intervention on febrile seizure among mothers of under five children. 3. To associate the pretest knowledge and practice score with selected demographic variables. 4. To identify the Correlation between post test knowledge and practice on febrile seizure among the mothers of under five children. HYPOTHESIS: H1- There will be a significant difference between pretest and post test knowledge score on febrile seizures. H2- The mean post test practice score will be significantly higher than mean pretest practice score. H3- There will be a significant association between pretest scores of knowledge and selected demographic variables. H4- There will be a significant association between pretest practice score and selected demographic variables. H5- There will be significant relation between the post test knowledge and practice score. METHODOLOGY: Pre-experimental one group pretest and post test design was used, 40 samples were selected using non- probability convenient sampling method. A self administered questionnaire and observational checklist was used to evaluate the knowledge and practice of mothers. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data. RESULTS: The study findings revealed that the educational intervention was effective on knowledge and practice of mothers in prevention and care of children with febrile seizures. • The findings shows that among 40 mothers of under five children, 36(90%) had moderate knowledge, 4(10%) had adequate knowledge in the pretest. The level of knowledge was improved after intervention and in the post test 1(2.5%) had moderate knowledge and 39(97.5%) had adequate knowledge. • The findings shows that among the 40 mothers of under five children, 2 (5%) had inadequate practice, 28 (70%) had moderate practice, 10 (25%) had adequate practice in pre test. The level of practice improved after the intervention and in the post test 3 (7.5%) had moderate practice and 37 (92.5%) had adequate practice. • The findings revealed that, the pretest knowledge score mean was 10.6 and post test mean was 16.3, So mean difference 5.75 was a true difference. The standard deviation of pretest was 2.340 and post test was 1.388. The calculated paired ‘t’ value was 24.01 was highly significant than the table value (2.05) at 0.05 level. Hence the stated hypothesis was accepted. • The findings revealed that, the pretest practice score mean was 9.10 and post test mean was 12.77, So mean difference 3.67 was a true difference. The standard deviation of pretest was 2.08 and posttest was 1.44. The calculated paired ‘t’ value 18.933 was highly significant than the table value (2.05) at 0.05 level. Hence the stated hypothesis was accepted. • The findings done by chi square test to find out the association between the pretest knowledge score with the selected demographic variables, revealed that the pretest knowledge score is associated with the reason of visit to primary health centre and χ2value was 8.393 which is significant at level of p<0.05. • The findings revealed by, chi square analyzes to find out the association between the pretest practice score with the selected demographic variables. The findings revealed that there was no association between the pretest practice score with the selected demographic variables. • The findings revealed that there is a positive correlation between the post test knowledge and post test practice score.
