Abstract


An inflammation of the stomach's lining that provides protection is called gastritis. More people with gastritis live in underdeveloped nations than in industrialized ones. The study aimed to assess the students' knowledge of associated factors, symptoms, and gastritis management at a certain university in Bhubaneswar. The study was carried out using a survey research methodology. The study employed a descriptive survey research design & sample was collected by a non-probability convenient sampling technique. The study included a self-structured questionnaire to collect data on socio-demographic variables & awareness of symptoms, signs, & gastritis treatment. 250 students between the ages of 16 to 35 took part in the study. An SPSS-22 was used to analyze the data. The study's analysis revealed a mean score of 43.7 for knowledge of gastritis management, signs, and associated factors. About gastritis, 96.8% of students are well-informed. It has been determined using inferential statistics that certain socio-demographic characteristics are not associated with knowledge of gastritis. It is necessary to implement a variety of activities to educate students about gastritis. Lastly, we discovered that nursing students had more information about gastritis than did upper secondary students.
