Introduction: Infertility is defined as a failure to conceive within one or more years of regular unprotected coitus. Most of the infertile couples are not having adequate knowledge regarding recent advancements in infertility management which is leading to the reduced acceptance of this treatment. Aims: The study is attempted to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding Assisted Reproductive Technology among the infertile couples in selected hospitals of Guwahati, Assam. Methods: Sixty infertile participants from the selected hospitals of Guwahati, Assam were selected. A structured questionnaire was developed to assess the pre-test and post-test knowledge of infertile couples. Structured teaching programme was conducted after administering the pre-test. And post test was administered after one week. Results: The findings of the study revealed that out of 60 infertile participants 50% belonged to age group 35 and above years and 60% of the infertile participants had an education level of graduate and above. The mean post test score (28.85) was higher than the mean pre test score (18.96). The‘t’ value was found highly significant (‘t59’=16.74). So it is evident that post test knowledge scores were higher than the pre test knowledge scores. There was significant association between the knowledge of the infertile participants with educational level. Conclusion: This study shows that structured teaching programme is very effective in improving the knowledge of infertile couples regarding assisted reproductive technology, but there is a need for conducting such programme frequently.
