The investigator conducts an experimental study to identify "Effectiveness of Planned Teaching Programme on prevention of Intestinal Worm Infestations in terms of knowledge among mothers in a selected rural community, West Bengal." She adopted a quasi-experimental study approach with a pre-test post- test control group design and selected 40 mothers attending I.C.D.S centers (20 mothers in each group) by convenient sampling technique. The structured interview schedule was used to collect data. Results show that the mean difference between pre-test and post-test knowledge scores in the Experimental group is statistically significant for calculated "t" value t19 = 16.8, p ? 0.05, and post-test knowledge scores between Experimental and Control groups are statistically significant for calculated "t" value t38 = 19.8, p ? 0.05 which indicates the effectiveness of planned teaching programme. No association between the pre-test knowledge score of the Experimental group with selected demographic characteristics of the sample.
