Assess the Effectivness of Training Programme on Auxiliary Nurse Midwives Related to New Born Care
Keywords:ANMs, Training programme, Newborn care.
Background- Many newborns fall sick in the first days of life due to complications of childbirth. It is
therefore important to have skilled care at birth so that any complications can be prevented or treated.
Objectives-1) To compare the practices of ANMs with regard to new born care before and after the
administration of training programme.2) To determine the association between the practice scores and the
selected demographic data i.e. age, years of experience and education. Method - A Pre experimental design
that is one group pre test and post test design was adopted in the study. A training programme was developed
by the researcher and administered to the participants. Results- The mean scores of pre test were 22.06 and
standard deviation 2.0. The mean of post test knowledge scores were 40.5 and standard deviation 3.2 and
found to be significant at 0.05 levels. The inference was drawn that age, years of experience and educational
status had no association with post test scores. Conclusion – The training programme was found to be very
effective in improving the practices of Auxiliary nurse midwives.
