First aid is the assistance given to any person suffering a sudden illness or injury, with care provided to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, or to promote recovery. Automobile accidents are extremely common cause of injury. Whether an accident results in minor whiplash or more serious injuries, it's important to learn how to respond quickly. Many emergency situations involve threatening situations with other people. A total 60 samples were enrolled in the study.
Methodology: Research approach used in this study was evaluatory approach. Pre experimental one group pre-test post-test research design was adapted. The sample was auto rickshaw drivers who fulfilled inclusion criteria selected by using non probability convenient sampling technique. The study was conducted in selected Auto rickshaw stands. The researcher used semi structured questionnaire to assess knowledge and observational checklist to assess practices of auto rickshaw drivers. The data was analysed in terms of the objective and hypothesis using SPSS format.
Result: Wilcoxon Signed rank Test value for knowledge is 6.774 which is statistically significant at 5% level of significance. Wilcoxon Signed rank Test value for practices is 6.749 which is statistically significant at 5% level of significance. The calculated value was statistically significant at 5% level of significance. Hence the null hypothesis is rejected which shows that structured teaching program is effective.
Conclusion: The major findings revealed that structured teaching programme enhanced the knowledge of the auto rickshaw drivers on first aid management during road traffic accident. The overall mean score of post-test knowledge scores of the autorickshw drivers is 15.55 is apparently higher than the overall mean score of pre-test knowledge score 10.83 P value was < 0.001 which is statistically significant at 5 % level i.e., p<0.05.
