Abstract: Objective: A study to assess the effectiveness of structured teaching programme regarding knowledge on dietary management of renal calculi among patients with renal calculi in Rajah Muthiah Medical College and Hospital, Annamalai University. Method: One group pretest and posttest pre experimental design was used. 30 patients with renal calculi were selected using convenient sampling technique in Rajah Muthiah Medical College and Hospital, Annamalai University. The demographic data and clinical data were collected. Pretest was conducted using structured interview schedule. After seven days posttest was conducted using the same questionnaire. Result: The study revealed that 12(40%) had moderately adequate knowledge and patient 18(60%) had inadequate knowledge regarding dietary management before the structured teaching programme. After structured teaching programme 7(23%) had adequate knowledge and 12(40%) had moderately adequate knowledge and 11(37%) had inadequate knowledge. Thus the study showed that there was an increase in knowledge regarding dietary management of renal calculi because of STP. It was found to be statistically significant at P>0.001. The data analysis showed that there was a significant association between pre test knowledge and demographic variables such as age, education, family history and previous knowledge of the patients with renal calculi. There was no significant association in gender and religion of the patients with renal calculi. Conclusion: This implies that STP had improved the knowledge on Dietary management among patients with renal calculi. Such teaching programme can be carried out in the hospital and community to improve the knowledge of patients, and thereby reduce the recurrence of renal calculi among patient with first episode of renal calculi.
