ABSTRACT:
A study to assess the effectiveness of Self-Instructional Module on knowledge regarding Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection among staff nurses of a selected hospital, Kollam. The objectives of the study, a) To assess the knowledge of staff nurses regarding Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection. b) To find the association between knowledge of staff nurses regarding MRSA infection and selected demographic variables such as education, working unit, years of experience and membership in infection control team. c)To determine the effectiveness of Self-Instructional Module on knowledge regarding Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection among staff nurses. A quantitative approach was used with one group pretest posttest only design. Convenience sampling was used with a sample size of 50 staff nurses. The investigator assessed staff nurses knowledge using structured questionnaire regarding Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection. After conducting the pretest, self instructional module was introduced to the staff nurses. Posttest was conducted on fifth day using the same research tool. It is found that the calculated t value is greater than table value. There is significant difference between pretest and posttest scores of knowledge of staff nurse. There is no significant association between knowledge and year of experience, membership in infection control team. Whereas educational qualification and working unit had significant association between knowledge regarding Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection. The finding of the study suggests that the self instructional module was effective in increasing the knowledge of staff nurses regarding Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection.
