Abstract

Background: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex endocrine disorder that affects 6% to 10% of women of reproductive age.. Aim of the research was to examine the effect of self instructional module on awareness of polycystic ovarian syndrome among adolescent students. Design: A quasi-experimental research design was adopted to fulfil the aim of this study. Setting: The study was conducted at nursing institute of Benha teaching hospital and nursing institute of health insurance hospital. Sample:A purposive sample of one hundred and seventy five adolescent girls among those attending the above mentioned setting. Tools: Data were collected through four main tools: A Structured interviewing questionnaire, knowledge questionnaire regarding polycystic ovarian syndrome, adaptive healthy measures questionnaire regarding PCOS and adolescent student’s satisfaction sheet. Results: showed that the majority of adolescent students (89.7) had no information about PCOS while minority of them had source of information from health team , mass media ,family and friends respectively. and only 6.3 %of adolescent girls had adequate knowledge pre implementation increased to 90.3 % post implementation. Also there was a highly statistically significant difference between total knowledge and total adaptive healthy measures score related to PCOS at the pre and post implementation phases (p<0.001). Additionally the majority of adolescent students were satisfied with the self instructional module implementation. Conclusion: the study concluded that research hypotheses are supported and adolescent students exhibited better awareness regarding polycystic ovarian syndrome after implementation of self instructional module and this support the first hypothesis. Also the majority of adolescent students were satisfied with self instructional module regarding polycystic ovarian syndrome and this support the second hypothesis. Recommendations: Nursing curriculum should be updated to include comprehensive information about PCOS to improve the awareness of adolescents.
