ABSTRACT:
Background: Japanese encephalitis (JE) is caused by the Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) resulting in brain infection. Mosquitoes, specifically those of the Culextype are responsible for spread Japanese encephalitis. The disease mostly occurs outside of cities. JE can be prevent by Japanese encephalitis vaccine, which is both safe and effective to use. Other measures include avoiding mosquito bites. Objectives: To assess the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding Japanese Encephalitis among the adults of a selected rural community, Kamrup, Assam. Material and Method: The study adopted a Pre-experimental one group pre-test post-test design, 130 adults of Ural Loflong, Sonapur, Assam were recruited as sample of the study using non probability convenient as sampling technique. Demographic data, structured knowledge questionnaire on Japanese Encephalitis were used to collect the data. The data in the study were analysed by Descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: The finding of the study revealed that 32.30% of adults were in age group of 41-50 years, 56.92% adults were female, 44.61% adults were married, 54.62% of adults were from nuclear family, 33.84% adults were having primary education, 34.61% of adults were employed and 34.61% were unemployed, 34.61% adults have family income less than 5000, 39.23% of them have semi-pucca house, 76.92% adults have open drainage system, 74.61% of adults use mosquito net, 86.92% adults doesn’t rear pigs, 89.23% of adults doesn’t have previous history of Japanese Encephalitis. The Mean difference and Standard Deviation difference of knowledge score is 6.80±1.12. There was a significant difference between pre test and post test (t= 30.69, df=129, p=0.001) at 0.05 level of significance. So, it reflects that the structured teaching programme was found effective. There was significant association of pre-test knowledge with demographic variables like type of family, educational qualification and type of house but there was no significant association of pre-test knowledge with demographic variables like age, gender, marital status, drainage system, use of mosquito net, rearing of pigs and previous family history. Conclusion: Based on the study findings, it is concluded that the structured teaching programme improved the knowledge regarding Japanese Encephalitis.
