Abstract

The study was conducted with the objectives to assess the effectiveness of training on self-administration of insulin among type 2 diabetes patients and to determine the relationship between knowledge and skill in self administration of insulin. An evaluative approach with quasi experimental research (one group pre-test post-test) design was adopted for the study. A study was carried out with 30 patients from Kasturba Hospital Manipal. Demographic proforma, knowledge questionnaire and observational checklist on self administration of insulin were used to collect the data. Patients were trained after the pre-test by lecture cum demonstration method and post test was implemented after eight days of training. The study observed that the majority of the sample was having a high school education (40%) males (66.67%) with mean age of 52.87+7.66 years. Most of them received information related to health from TV (63.33%). The duration of Diabetes was 5-10 years (30%) and astonishingly half of them have a family history of Diabetes (50%). The computed paired t was statistically significant in improving the knowledge (t =27.97, p< 0.001) and skill (t = 16.7, p< 0.001) in self administration of insulin among type 2 diabetes patients. There was a weak positive statistical relationship (r=0.4, p<0.05) between knowledge and skill. Therefore, it is concluded that training was effective in enhancing both knowledge and skill in self administration of insulin. The nursing personnel need to take initiative in directing, teaching and educating patients about self administration practices which can be better understood by the patients, family members and the community at large
