A Comprehensive Study to Assess the Effectiveness of Planned Teaching Program on Knowledge Regarding the Care of Permanent Pacemaker at Home among Patients at Selected OPDs of Sangli and Kolhapur City

The current study was aimed at assessing the efficacy of the proposed awareness teaching programme on permanent pacemaker treatment at home among patients in selected Sangli and Kolhapur City OPDs. Background: A pacemaker is a small electronic system mounted above a layer of muscle just below your skin. In order to maintain a steady heart rate, it helps to pace your heart. If the heart beats too slowly or stops too long between heart beats, it feels it. It will send electric pulses to keep the heart rate steady if it detects a sluggish rate or a pause that is too long. Methodology: pre-experimental one-group pre-test post-test methodology was performed to evaluate the expertise of patients with permanent pacemaker in the selected Sangli and Kolhapur city OPDs. The questionnaire’s reliability coefficient ‘r’ was 0.85, which is why it was considered accurate. The Purposive Sampling Method selected a total of 50 samples. A standardised 18-item questionnaire was administered. To gather data. On the 1st day, the pre-test was given followed by scheduled teaching and the 7th day was administered by Posttest. The conceptual structure, developed by Ludwig von Bertalanffy (1968), is based on the general system model theory. Result: The knowledge of pacemaker treatment was not understood until providing scheduled teaching patients with permanent pacemaker. The maximum number of patients with good knowledge of pacemaker treatment , i.e. 10 per cent, was found. The post-test revealed that 46% of individuals have a good knowledge score. This indicates that the post-test knowledge score has increased markedly, and scheduled teaching has been effective.

Conclusion: It was therefore concluded that pre-test and post-test awareness score improvements were clearly demonstrated by the analysis. The present study concludes with the goal of finding the efficacy of the planned teaching programme on awareness of permanent pacemaker treatment at home among patients in selected Sangli and Kolhapur city OPDs. The study results clearly showed that pre-test and post-test awareness score adjustments have occurred.
