ASSESS THE KNOWLEDGE REGARDING RISK FACTORS OF GASTRITIS AMONG SECOND YEAR ENGINEERING STUDENTS
Background: Gastritis is a common medical problem among young adults due to certain factors like lifestyle, food pattern, stress, personal habits etc. The condition is diagnosed in as many as 10% of patients seeking emergency medical help for abdominal pain.
Objectives: To assess the knowledge regarding risk factor of gastritis among second year engineering student in selected colleges. To associate the knowledge score regarding gastritis with selected demographic variables.
Materials and methods: An exploratory descriptive study was undertaken to assess the knowledge regarding risk factors of gastritis among 2nd year engineering students at Datta Meghe Institute of Engineering, Technology and Research, Wardha. The sample was selected using a purposive sampling method. In this study a total number of 100 students who fulfilled the inclusion criteria were selected. To assess their knowledge a self-structured questionnaire was developed. Ethics approval was obtained from IEC,DMIMS (DMIMS(DU)/IEC/Aug-2018/7736). The conclusion will be drawn from the results and will be published in peer reviewed journal.
Expected Results : This study is planned to assess the knowledge regarding risk factor of gastritis among second year engineering student in selected colleges. Hence it is expected to spread wide awareness regarding risk of gastritis.
