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
