(21.6 ± 3.84, 30.83 ± 4.51) and (17.54 ± 2.76, 19.54 ± 4.17) respectively. There was significant difference
between mean pre test and post test knowledge and practices scores (p=0.00).There was statistically no
significant correlation between post test knowledge and practices score [r=0.16 (0.39)] among nursing
personnel in experimental group at the level of significance 0.05.There was significant association of
selected variable in area of gender (0.02) in experimental and education (0.02) in comparison group
with pre test knowledge scores , also there was a significant association of selected variable in area of
