Abstract

The health of the baby must be guarded from the time of conception. Every birth must be considered as a medical emergency. Neonatal morbidity and mortality is directly related to the birth weight and gestational maturity of the newborn. There is no indicator in human biology which tells us so much about the past events and future trajectory of life as the weight of infant at birth. The study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of information education communication package on knowledge regarding home care management of high risk newborn among mothers. The hypothesis formulated was that there was no significant relationship between the information education communication package and the level of the knowledge regarding home care management of high risk newborn among mothers. The review of literature had included the studies which provides a strong foundation for the study including the basis for conceptual framework and the formation of tool. The research design used in this study was pre experimental one group pre test post test design. It was carried out with 50 samples who fulfilled the inclusion criteria. Purposive sampling technique was used to select the samples. A self administered tool was given to the mothers to assess the pre test level of knowledge. Information education communication package was given to the mothers for a period of 30 minutes. The post test was assessed after three days by using the same tool. The analysis revealed that the pre test mean score was 11.42 with the standard deviation of 2.14 and the post test mean score was 24.67 and with the standard deviation of 2.22 and the students paired “t’ test value was 27.20 which showed as significant at p ≤ 0.001 level. Thus the analysis revealed that there was an increase in post test level of knowledge, and also it indicates the effectiveness of information education communication package on knowledge regarding home care management of high risk newborn among mothers.
