Mrinalini Barman and Lakshmi Pandit

A pre-experimental study was adopted on the effect of an awareness program regarding foot care on knowledge and practice among type II diabetic mellitus patients in selected rural community, Paschim Medinipur, West Bengal with the objectives to assess the knowledge and practice about foot care among type II diabetes mellitus patients before and after awareness programme, to determine the effectiveness of awareness programme, to find out the relationship between knowledge and practice and association between knowledge and practice with selected demographic variables. Study findings revealed that the awareness program was effective on increasing knowledge and practice as evident from the mean difference of pre and post-test knowledge scores (‘t’=20.43, p<0.05), and practice scores (‘t’ =22.30, p<0.05). There was no correlation (r=0.26) between post-test knowledge and practice scores. There was significant association of pre-test knowledge score with education and pre-test practice score with marital status.
