ABSTRACT:
Introduction: Tuberculosis is one of the most prominent mycobacterium diseases known to humankind. Increasing cases world-wide led to the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring a global Emergency in April 1993. Despite the availability of „tools? for controlling TB, programs have been unable to sustain high cure rate. As a consequence of this, and the increasing problems of drug resistance, the International community, through the WHO, has developed and launched the Directly Observed Treatment Short Course (DOTS) strategy. Directly Observed Treatment, Short course chemotherapy is a strategy to ensure cure by providing the most effective medicine and confirming that it is taken. It is the only strategy which has been documented to be effective Worldwide on a program basis. Design: A quantitative approach using pre-experimental pre-test post-test design with one group. Participants: 50 Staff Nurses were selected using Non-Probability purposive sampling technique in Mehsana District. Interventions: Structured teaching was given to the Staff Nurses.
