The conceptual Framework utilized in this study was Orem’s self-care deficit theory. The total sample size was 50. Non probability purposive sampling technique was used. Data collection was done using structured interview schedule and grinder modified attitude scale.
Result: The mean posttest knowledge scores (18.2) and S.D (2.94) is higher than the mean pretest knowledge scores (15.32) and SD (4.45) with a mean difference 2.88. The obtained mean difference was found to be statically significant as evident from ’t’ value 3.65 which is greater than the table value of 2.02 at 0.05 level of significance. Hence null Hypothesis H01 was rejected and research hypothesis H1 was accepted. It can be inferred that the self-instructional module for cancer patients regarding home care management was effective in improving their knowledge. 16(32%) were having good knowledge, 29(58%) were having average knowledge, 5(10%) having below average knowledge in pretest.

The mean post attitude scores (92.28) is higher than the mean pretest attitude scores (86.62), the standard deviation of pre-test is 10.02 while post-test is 9.97, with a mean difference 5.26. Coefficient of correlation (r-value) between post-test knowledge and attitude scores was found to be 0.28 is higher than table value (.273). Chi square there is no association between knowledge score of the subjects regarding home care management among cancer patients with other selected demographic variables.
