A Study to Assess the Effectiveness of Planned Teaching Program on Knowledge Regarding Electro Convulsive Therapy among Patient’s Relatives Undergoing ECT in Selected Hospitals in Vadodara
Keywords:Effectiveness, Planned Teaching Program, Knowledge, Electro Convulsive Therapy
Background of Study: Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a safe and efficacious treatment; there is a
widespread negative view of electroconvulsive therapy in public and professional circles. Clinical experience
and research have resulted in continued improvements to the efficacy and safety of electro convulsive

investigator used pre-experimental one group pre-test post-test research design. Purposive sampling
technique used for Selecting 30 Samples. The Structural questioners Used Check knowledge of ECT before
& after administration of planned teaching program.
Results: Analysis of paired t test is done to assess the effectiveness of planned teaching on knowledge
regarding electroconvulsive therapy. Researcher has found t value= 24.853 thus the obtained t value in
this study is more than the table value of t test at 0.05 level of significance. Hence the obtained t value
is significant. So it reveals that planned teaching on knowledge regarding electroconvulsive therapy is
