Author: DR PATHARKAR, DR MAULIN MEHTA, DR ERVILLA DASS
Abstract: The fight against COVID-19 pandemic can be made more victorious with the weapon of knowledge, changing towards positive attitude & stable, steady mind. The medical fraternity including undergraduate students plays pivotal role in this fight. This study was to evaluate knowledge, attitude & perception about management of COVID-19 & to access its psychosocial impact among undergraduate medical students. This cross-sectional, online questionnaire-based survey study was done to investigate the knowledge, attitude & perception about COVID-19 of II-year MBBS Students & to evaluate the impact on their psychosocial behaviour. The structured questionnaire filled by students online voluntarily & anonymously after giving consent regarding their KAP associated with COVID-19. In our study, 70 out of 125 (56%) recruited students answered correctly scoring > 76% (= 13 on 17-point scale). The student’s knowledge about COVID-19 viral infection, lab diagnosis risk factors, importance of social distancing etc. is good which is statistically significant (P = 0.000) but they lack the information about specific treatment of COVID-19 which is statistically significant (p = 0.016). Only 41.6% (52) know that till date there is no specific treatment & others thinks that plasma therapy 24% (30), hydroxychloroquine 17.6 % (22) & Remdesivir 16.8% (21) is specific treatment. Statistically significant negative impact among students had seen on sleeping pattern (p = 0.009) & depression (p = 0.016). This study showed students’ knowledge about management of COVID-19 is not optimum & COVID-19 had impact on psychosocial behaviour of the student.
