ABSTRACT:
The main aim of the study was to provide knowledge regarding organ donation among young adults, so that they get motivated towards organ donation and help in saving the lives of others. Quasi experimental (Non randomized pre-test post-test control group) design was selected for the study. Convenience sampling technique was used to select 100 young adults from DAV College and Lyallpur Khalsa College of Jalandhar, Punjab. Self structured knowledge questionnaire and attitude scale regarding organ donation was used. Data was analysed by using descriptive (mean, standard deviation, percentage) and inferential statistics (ANOVA, t - test). The pre-test mean knowledge score was 12.52 of experimental group and 12.60 of control group whereas post-test mean knowledge score was 19.14 of experimental group and 13.62 of control group. The pre-test mean attitude score was 35.88 of experimental group and 35.82 of control group whereas post-test mean attitude score was 42.56 of experimental group and 36.86 of control group. It was found that there was significant increase in the mean knowledge and mean attitude score in experimental group than in control group. The study concluded that structured teaching programme was effective in providing knowledge and changing the attitude regarding organ donation among young adults. The findings of the study revealed that only gender was associated with knowledge of young adults regarding organ donation and only religion was associated with attitude of young adults towards organ donation. Other socio-demographic variables were not associated.
