The purpose of the study to assess the effectiveness of video- assisted teaching regarding impact on external breast prosthesis among post mastectomy women in a selected hospital at Kanyakumari District The purpose of the study was to assess the knowledge and attitude of post mastectomy women on external breast prosthesis before and after video assisted teaching. The study was conducted in International cancer center at Kanyakumari medical mission, Neyyoor. Purposive sampling technique was adopted. Samples were selected on the basis of inclusion criteria. Samples used were 30 post mastectomy women who were admitted at the International cancer center. The data collection tools developed for gathering the data, were a structured knowledge questionnaire to assess the knowledge of post mastectomy women regarding external breast prosthesis, five point likert scales to assess the attitude of post mastectomy women regarding external breast prosthesis. The study was based on the J.W Kenny” open system model. The research design adapted for this study was pre experimental one group pretest and posttest design. The feasibility of the study and the refinement of tools were assessed through pilot study. Findings of the study as follows in the pretest knowledge majority of the post mastectomy women that is 30(100.0%) had inadequate knowledge. In attitude the pretest of the post mastectomy women, 14(46.7%) were disagree, 12(40.0%) were uncertain, 3(10.0%) were strongly disagree, 1(3.3%) was agree and none of them had strongly agree. In the post-test, majority of the post mastectomy women that is 17(56.7%) had moderate knowledge, 11(36.6%) had adequate knowledge, and 2(6.7%) had inadequate knowledge. In the post-test, 16(53.3%) of the post mastectomy women were agree, 11(36.7) were uncertain, 2(6.7%) were strongly agree, 1(3.3%) were disagree and no one had strongly disagree. This study revealed that the video assisted teaching was effective in improving the knowledge and attitude on external breast prosthesis among post mastectomy women. Though knowledge and attitude of post mastectomy women were significantly improved with highest mean improvement, there was some lagging noted because of unavailability of adequate resources in the oncology unit. So we strongly recommend to conduct the in service education programme to upgrade the knowledge.
