A pre experimental one group pre test post test design was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of STP on knowledge regarding first aid management among school teachers in selected schools at Vadavucode Puthencruz Panchayat. The objective were to determine the level of knowledge regarding first aid management among school teachers before structured teaching programme and to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme in terms of gain in knowledge. METHODS The research approach adopted for this study was quantitative type and the research design was pre experimental one group pre test post test design. This study was conducted among 30 school teachers in selected schools at Vadavucode Puthencruz Panchayat based on inclusion criteria using convenient sampling technique. The data for the study was collected by structured questionnaire following which samples were subjected to STP on first aid management for duration of one hour. Post test was conducted after seven days following intervention using same knowledge questionnaire. The data were analyzed and interpreted by descriptive and inferential statistics. RESULTS Among demographic variables most of the subjects were in the age group of 41years 40 and 13 of them were in the age group of 36 40 years. The pre test knowledge score were 20 of the participants obtained between the range of good, 47 obtained score in the range of average and 33 obtained poor score. Similarly post test score were 70 obtained good score and 30 obtained average and nobody obtained poor score. This indicate that the mean post test knowledge score 29.3 after intervention is higher than the mean pre test knowledge 20.8 before intervention. The obtained’t’ value 9.7 is significant at p 0.05 level. So the selected hypothesis H1 is accepted. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSION The result revealed that there was a significant improvement in knowledge among school teachers regarding First aid management after structured teaching programme.
