Abstract:

In day today most of the biomedical waste handlers are unaware of newer guidelines 2016. There is a need of training regarding newer guidelines 2016 on biomedical waste management to biomedical waste handlers for improving their week efficiency and adoption newer guidelines for safe practice of biomedical waste management therefore by improving the safety exposed to the infectious and toxic waste of the hospital. 1.To assess the status of knowledge and practice among biomedical waste handler regarding new guidelines 2016 biomedical waste management. 2. To assess the status of knowledge and practice biomedical waste handler regarding new guidelines of biomedical waste management of after learning package. Methods and materials: One group pretest posttest research design was used and samples were selected by using non-probability purposive sampling technique. The sample size was 55 biomedical waste handlers and sweepers working in various wards and department of BMWM KH and MRC, Karad. Before practices of handlers was observed and pretest was conducted before administering video assisted teaching and structure lesson plan and post test was conducted after 7 day, and post observation was done. Present study showed that pre-test mean score of total knowledge was 10.96 and post-test it was increased up to 18.72 and practice score was increased from 16.09 to 19.36. The paired‘t’ test was used for this study. The p value < 0.0001 which is considered to be Extremely Significant so it indicated that video assisted teaching programme was effective for improving knowledge and practices of biomedical waste handlers and there was significant association between age and gender and knowledge but there was no significant association with practice of biomedical waste handlers. There was a no significant association between education, income, experience and training and knowledge and practice regarding BMWM according to (2016) guidelines. Based on the analysis of findings it was shown that increase in the knowledge and practice scores of biomedical waste handlers after administration of video assisted teaching program.
