Introduction: Coronary artery disease is also called CAD. It is the most common form of heart disease and it is the leading cause of death, too. It occurs when the coronary arteries that carry blood to your heart get blocked with plaque.
Objectives: The present study aims is to assess the effectiveness of video assisted teaching about risk factors of Coronary heart disease (CHD).
Methodology: The research design for the study is pre-experimental with one group pre-test post-test research design. Purposive sampling technique was used to select samples. Structured questionnaire was used to collect demographic data and multiple choice questions was used to assess post-test knowledge.
Results: The study resultsshows that statistically significant association with post-test level of knowledge about risk factors of coronary artery disease among the clients admitted in De-addiction ward at p<0.05 level and the other demographic variables had not shown statistically significant association with posttest level of knowledge about risk factors of coronary artery disease among the clients admitted in De-addiction ward.
Conclusion: This indicates that video assisted teaching is the effective and easy method to improve knowledge regarding CAD. It also helps in maintaining good lifestyle by creating awareness regarding the healthy lifestyle.
