Comparison of Knowledge Regarding Vitamin D in Non-Healthcare Personnel of Faculty of Medicine Vajira Hospital, Navamindradhiraj University Between the Lecture-based Group and the Edutainment with Lecture Group
Keywords:lecture, edutainment, vitamin D
Objective: To comparison of knowledge regarding vitamin D in non-healthcare personnel of Faculty of Medicine Vajira Hospital, Navamindradhiraj University between the lecture-based group and the edutainment with lecture group.
Methods: This quasi-experimental research collected data from 39 non-healthcare personnel of the Faculty of Medicine, Vajira Hospital (male 6 persons, female 33 persons). They were divided into two groups: one group was provided lecture knowledge only and another group was provided knowledge in a lecture style combined with edutainment. The questionnaire was used to study knowledge about vitamin D before entering and after joining the activity.
Results: The mean score before and after giving knowledge of the lecture-based group was 5.71 and 7.41 respectively, while the average score before and after giving knowledge of the edutainment with lecture group was 5.86 and 7.68 respectively. We found that both knowledge scores before and after giving knowledge were not statistically significantly different between the lecture-based group and the edutainment with lecture group (p = 0.777 and p = 0.586, respectively). While the post-knowledge scores were significantly higher than before giving knowledge in both groups (p = 0.002 and p <0.001, respectively).
Conclusion: Both forms of education were successful. On the other hand, edutainment combined with lectures did not help to increase the knowledge of volunteers over the lecture alone. Therefore, lectures could be done alone for providing knowledge to save time and budget.
