Abstract

Dengue fever is a major public health concern in India. This study aimed to assess effectiveness of continuing medical education (CME) and awareness programme among 154 health care workers (HCW) in tertiary care hospital. Effectiveness of CME and awareness programme was evaluated by questionnaire regarding dengue fever. Knowledge score was found to significantly increase after CME and awareness programme (p value <= 0.05). There is a need to increase health education activities through regular continuing medical education (CME), awareness campaigns and post awareness evaluation to maintain and improve clinical performance of health care workers.
