The objectives of the study were to a) to check out the existing knowledge regarding attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in the primary school teachers. b) to evaluate the effectiveness of self -instructional module of knowledge regarding attention deficit hyperactivity disorder among the primary school teachers by comparing pre &amp; post test scores. C) to determine the interrelation between pre &amp; post-test knowledge scores regarding attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in the primary school teachers with their noted demographic variables. Modified consumer information process model by Bettman, Mc Guire conceptual framework used. The research design adopted was experimental design and the sampling technique used was non probability convenient sampling technique. Structured knowledge questionnaire was used for data collection. Knowledge of teachers regarding ADHD is increased significantly after the execution of the self-instructional module. It can be concluded that SIM is an effective strategy for strengthening the knowledge.</p> Saumya V Revi, Karthik Aiyappa Sathyan, Leya Philip Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Perinatal, Pediatric and Neonatal Nursing (e-ISSN: 2581-9011) http://matjournals.co.in/index.php/JPPNN/article/view/880 Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0000 A Descriptive Study to Assess the Level of Knowledge Regarding Sexually Transmitted Infections Among Late Adolescence in Selected Higher Secondary School, Kot Bhalwal, Jammu http://matjournals.co.in/index.php/JPPNN/article/view/1030 <p>Adolescent is the age of eagerness. Teenagers are naturally will be aware off their bodies and about the world. Teens are undergoing dramatic changes. In addition to the physical and physiological changes of puberty, they experience cognitive changes that allow them to think more abstractly. They become increasingly focused on friends. And as they seek greater independence, they often come into conflict with parents. Most adolescent cross with few problems, found identities and preparing for adulthood. Some, however, experience problems that lead to dropping out of school, drug use or crime [1]. A Quantitative approach, Pre-experimental research design was adopted for this study. 100 samples selected by purposive sampling technique. Socio-demographic variables and self structured knowledge questionnaire was used to find out the knowledge regarding sexually transmitted infections among late adolescence. The response were analyze through descriptive measures (mean, median, mode, standard deviation, frequency and percentage) and inferential statistics. Discussion on the findings is arranged in the order of the objectives of the study. The present study states that out of 100 samples, 89 adolescence had inadequate knowledge, 10 adolescent had moderate knowledge and 1 adolescence had adequate knowledge regarding sexually transmitted infections. The result of present study concludes that source of information regarding sexually transmitted infections was not significant means had no impact on the level of knowledge regarding sexually transmitted infections. However, socio-demographic variables such as, age, gender, type of family, monthly income of family, religion, habitat, previous knowledge were found statistically non- significant.</p> Kavita Choudhary, Sain Priya Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Perinatal, Pediatric and Neonatal Nursing (e-ISSN: 2581-9011) http://matjournals.co.in/index.php/JPPNN/article/view/1030 Fri, 09 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 The Implementation of Nutritional Health Programs for Children Under Five Years Old During the Covid-19 Pandemic in a District Area in Lanao Del Sur, Philippines http://matjournals.co.in/index.php/JPPNN/article/view/1054 <p>This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of nutritional health programs for children under the age of five as well as the problems and challenges associated with their implementation in five rural health units located in five municipalities of Lanao del Sur. This study utilized the convergent mixed methods research design, specifically a concurrent triangulation mixed methods technique. In the first phase of the study, which was the quantitative phase, the research questions were address the perspectives of healthcare workers on the implementation of nutritional health programs for children under the age of five. In the second qualitative phase, five case studies were chosen, one head from each of the five RHUs to investigate the difficulties encountered in the implementation of nutritional health programs in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. The sample consisted of 62 community healthcare workers. Twenty nurses or midwives from each of the five municipalities were selected. The results revealed that despite the successful implementation of the nutrition programs, the healthcare workers faced challenges and problems. The findings of this study aid in the creation of effective solutions to address the factors that contribute to child undernutrition in Lanao del Sur.</p> Sherlin Omungan, Ashley Bangcola Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Perinatal, Pediatric and Neonatal Nursing (e-ISSN: 2581-9011) http://matjournals.co.in/index.php/JPPNN/article/view/1054 Tue, 20 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Nutritional Status among Pregnant Women and Birth Weight of Newborns who give birth at St. Paul Hospital Millennium Medical College, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia http://matjournals.co.in/index.php/JPPNN/article/view/1217 <p>Introduction: There is inadequate information on the effect of the nutritional status of pregnant women on the birth weight of newborns among mothers attending ANC service in Ethiopia, particularly at St. Paul's Hospital Millennium Medical College. Therefore, this proposal is designed to fill this information gap. Objectives: To assess the Nutritional Status among Pregnant Woman and the Birth Weight of newborns at St Paul Hospital Millennium Medical College, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 2022. Methods: Hospital-based cross-sectional study design will be conducted among mothers attending the Delivery ward at St Paul’s Hospital Millennium Medical College from May to July 2022. Results: A total of 402 pregnant women were included in this study. The mean age of mothers was 35.58 ± 6.52 years ranging from 22 to 46 years. About one in five 81 (20.1%) mothers had a history of eclampsia at least once in life. More than one-half of mothers 248 (61.7%) were malnourished during 1st antenatal care visit (ANC) visit. In the third ANC visit, more than eight out of ten 356 (88.6%) were malnourished. Mothers aged 25-35 years [AOR = 15.537 (95% C.I. for AOR, 2.058– 117.330, p = 0.008)] when compared with those aged above 35 years. Having the normal birth weight of the newborn (2.5 -4.0 kg) [AOR = 7.952 (95% C.I. for AOR, 1.791– 35.307, p = 0.006)], and the Presence of no hyperglycemia during the third trimester [AOR = 6.660 (95% C.I. for AOR, 1.440– 30.809, p = 0.015)] was associated with maternal nutritional status. Similarly, the normal nutritional status of the mother [AOR = 0.282 (95% C.I. for AOR, 0.107– 0.742, p = 0.010)], and the presence of no hyperglycemia during the third trimester [AOR = 0.552 (95% C.I. for AOR, 0.319– 0.954, p = 0.033)] were associated with a birth weight of newborn. Conclusion: The level of maternal malnutrition (mainly over nutrition) in our study area was high. Similarly, the proportion of newborn babies with low and high birth weights was also significant. Therefore, addressing associated factors by involving all relevant stakeholders is critical to improving the maternal nutritional status and birth-weight of the newborn.</p> Takele Achalu Dengela Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Perinatal, Pediatric and Neonatal Nursing (e-ISSN: 2581-9011) http://matjournals.co.in/index.php/JPPNN/article/view/1217 Wed, 09 Nov 2022 00:00:00 +0000
