    Abstract

    The new statistics indicates that Juvenile Diabetes is now becoming far more common among poor and needy children and women who are in gestation. The most worrying aspect is increasing prevalence of diabetes in poor children in India. It requires the combined effort of both the physician and the nurse. The nurse should understand the effect of Diabetes on the child and family, appreciate developmental issues for each stage of Diabetes and their relationship to Diabetes and recognize their influence on the care of child with Juvenile Diabetes. One group pretest - post test research design was adopted for the study. In view of the nature of the problem and objectives of the study a structured interview schedule and planned teaching programme was developed focusing on the domiciliary management of Juvenile Diabetes. The sample comprises of 85 students of third year B.Sc. Nursing selected by non probability convenient sampling technique. Structured interview schedule was used to collect needed data followed by that Planned teaching Programme on domiciliary management of Juvenile Diabetes. After the pretest, a planned- LCD teaching programme was given for 45 minutes. Post-test was administered after six days. The data collected were tabulated and analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics. Results show that 82 (96.47%) students had inadequate knowledge in pre-test, 3 (3.53%) students had moderate knowledge and none of them had adequate knowledge in pre-test. In post-test, 30 (35.3%) students had moderate knowledge, 55 (64.7%) students had adequate knowledge and none of them had inadequate knowledge on Juvenile Diabetes. The study concludes that the Planned teaching Programme was effective in improving the knowledge of students regarding domiciliary management of Juvenile Diabetes
