ItemThe Effects of Breast Self-Examination Program on Knowledge and Perceived Self-Efficacy among Female Nursing Students in a Private University( 2013) Patrabul NaksusukAim: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of an intervention program on knowledge and perceived self-efficacy of breast self-examination among private university female nursing students. Design and methods: One group pre-test/post-test research design was implemented to evaluate the effectiveness of an intervention program for nursing students. The program was instructed to 31 nursing students in a private university by researcher. Pre- and post-tests made available a quantitative evaluation of the level of improvement in breast self-examination knowledge and perceived self-efficacy. Results: Mean of the total breast self-examination score of nursing students prior to the program was 7.19 SD 1.64 whereas, it increased to 9.13 SD 0.81, revealing a statistically significant escalation (p < 0.0001 ). A significant increase was detected in the perceived self-efficacy of breast self- examination practice as a result of the significant improvement in the mean of perceived self- efficacy of breast self-examination score which rose evidently from 58.52 SD 18.00 to 81.48 SD 15.65 (p < 0.0001 ). Conclusion: The intervention program improved the knowledge and perceived self-efficacy of breast self-examination in nursing students of a private university. The further study should be expanded to female university students in Thailand and performed booster including evaluation the program's effectiveness over the long -term.
ItemPerceived self-efficacy, knowledge, and breast self-examination practice among Assumption University female studentsThe population of this study consisted of 9,684 Assumption University students. The sample size was calculated by using Yamane’s Formula, and 100 students were randomized to be the sample. The instrument was divided into 4 parts: personal data, knowledge, perceived self efficacy, and breast self-examination behavior. Content validity was examined by experts and reliability was obtained by mean of Cronbach’s coefficient alpha. The reliability of the perceived self-efficacy questionnaire was 0.987. Descriptive data analysis was used. The results revealed that knowledge and perceived self-efficacy were in the moderate level (mean 6 from 10, and 51 from 100). 51% of students performed (breast self- examination ( BSE), but almost of them performed once a year. It had no correlation between knowledge and BSE practice (r=0.00, P=0.998). The relationship between perceived self-efficacy and BSE practice was marginally significant (P=0.01). The findings showed that most of the samples did not have enough knowledge about BSE, had low self-efficacy, and inadequate practice. Those who had low self-efficacy should examine their breast occasionally. Therefore, the enhancing self-efficacy perception among female students should be a concern of health promoting faculty program.
