Background: There is an emerging attention toward the health of adolescents because the behaviour patterns adopted during this period have long-lasting positive as well as negative effects on future health and well-being.
Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding the identification and management of adolescent crisis among high school teachers.
Methods: The study was conducted using one group pretest-posttest design. The study included 30 high school teachers. The selected high school teachers who were willing to participate were included in the study. Pre- and posttest knowledge of the teachers was assessed by using a structured questionnaire after imparting a structured teaching programme on the identification and management of adolescent crisis. A paired t-test was used to compare the means of pre- and post-test knowledge scores.
Results: The pretest mean score was 17±3 and the posttest mean score was 31.8±1.88. The calculated t-value was 27.11, which was highly significant with p<0.001. This demonstrated that the structured teaching programme was an effective method for imparting the knowledge regarding the identification and management of adolescent crisis among government high school teachers.
