John Bosco J.* and Dr. Hema V. H.

ABSTRACT

Benign prostatic hyperplasia, in simple terms refers to the increased in prostate gland size. It involves hyperplasia of prostatic stromal cells and epithelial cells, resulting in the formation of large, fairly discrete nodules in the per urethral region of the prostate. Aim of the Study: A study to assess the effectiveness of video assisted teaching on knowledge and attitude regarding Benign Prostate Hyperplasia among drivers at selected Educational Institution. Methodology: A quazi experimental study was adopted with 60 samples using convenient sampling technique at selected Educational Institution, self-structured questionnaires was used to assess the knowledge and likert scale was used to assess the attitude towards Benign Prostate Hyperplasia. Major findings: In the post test after the video assisted teaching 58(96.67%) had adequate knowledge and only 2(3.33) had fairly adequate knowledge regarding Benign Prostate Hyperplasia among drivers. Pre-test, 49(81.67) had fair attitude and 11(18.33%) had poor attitude whereas in the post test after the video assisted teaching 45(75%) had good attitude and 15(25%) had fair attitude regarding Benign Prostate Hyperplasia among Drivers. Conclusion: The study results revealed that driver’s post-test level of knowledge and attitude had been improved after the video assisted teaching compared to the pre-test level of knowledge and attitude. And this also clearly states that increase in the drivers’ knowledge about benign prostate hyperplasia increases the attitude levels.
