Abstract

With a view to assess the effectiveness of self instructional module on home care management of patients with permanent pacemaker, a quasi experimental study with a quantitative approach was undertaken on 58 patients with permanent pacemaker. Purposive sampling technique was used in selecting permanent pacemaker patients. Prior to implementation of self instructional module the patients with permanent pacemaker had poor knowledge, whereas after implementation of self instructional module the patient with permanent pacemaker knowledge significantly improved with the difference of mean percentage revealing effectiveness of self instructional module. It was also found that the patients with permanent pacemaker were not aware of the importance of home care management.
