Title of Research : Study on Knowledge, Attitude, Practice and Accessibility to health care service for stroke risk factors modification among patients with first ever stroke at tertiary care hospitals in Myanmar
 
Field of Research : Neurology
 
Preliminary Research Design : Descriptive Study
 
Preliminary Research Type : HSR/Social
 
Preliminary Justification : Over the last four decades, the stroke incidence in low- and middle-income countries has more than doubled. Stroke mainly affect individuals at the peak of their productive life. Despite its enormous impact on countries’ socio-economic development, this growing crisis has received very little attention to date. In Myanmar, the incidence of stroke is alarmingly on the rising trend which is evidenced by hospital data of Yangon General Hospital. According to YGH data, total number of stroke admission is 3417 in 2015, 7333 in 2016 and 7373 in 2017 showing stroke as one of the major causes of hospital admission. Moreover, there was growing incidence of young stroke due to environmental factors. It results in caregiver burden, socioeconomic stress at individual, familial and national level and more importantly reduction of productive workforce of the Nation. Increased incidence of stroke in Myanmar is assumed due to insufficient preventive strategies, poor accessibility to health care service and poor health knowledge on stroke in the public. In Myanmar, studies at large scale has never been carried out to determine knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) and the access to health care service for stroke risk factors modification among patients. Based on the results of this study, primary preventive strategies which include health care programs for early detection and treatment of risk factors, and public health education, can be implemented or enhanced to reduce the burden of stroke in Myanmar.
 
Preliminary Aim : To Study Knowledge, Attitude, Practice and Accessibility to health care service for stroke risk factor modification among patients with first ever stroke at tertiary care hospitals in Myanmar.
 
Preliminary Objectives : 1. To identify the demographic data of patients with stroke admitted to tertiary hospitals in Myanmar 2. To determine the risk factors of stroke 3. To assess knowledge, attitude and practice of stroke risk factors modification before the stroke 4. To find out accessibility to health care service for risk factor modification and reasons for limited access
 
Preliminary Sample Size : 1000 first ever-stroke patients
 
Preliminary Study Duration : November 2017 to August 2018.
 
Preliminary Study Area : Neurology and Medical Departments of University of Medicine (1), (2), Mandalay and 1000-beded Hospital, Naypyidaw.
 
Preliminary Study Method : Multicentre-Hospital based cross-sectional study
 
Preliminary Research Outcome : Knowledge, attitude, practice and accessibility to health care service in first ever stroke patients
 
Preliminary Research Finding : All consecutive patients with first ever stroke who meet inclusion and exclusion criteria admitted to Neurology and Medical Departments of University of Medicine (1), (2), Mandalay and 1000-beded Hospital, Naypyidaw will be recruited to participate in the
 
Preliminary Progress Report : IN conclusion, the level of knowledge, risk reduction practice and accessibility to health facility were not adequate among the majority of participants. Good attitude was associated with level of education. A substantial portion of patients have poor acc
