Abstract

A class of undergraduate nursing students of size 80 was randomized to control and experimental group for teaching pharmacology (respiratory drugs) using Active Lecture Cum Live Demonstration (ALLD) and Active Lecture Cum Video (ALV). The controls were taught with ALLD and the experimental groups of students were taught using ALV. It was observed that the mean post-test knowledge score (50.05) of the experimental group after the competency programme on drug administration using active lecture cum video were apparently higher than the control group (45). Hence the competency programme on drug administration using Active Lecture cum Video (ALV) proved to be more effective than Active Lecture cum Live Demonstration (ALLD)
