Introduction: Diabetes is an emerging problem of this era in order to prevent this insulin therapy is the treatment of choice. Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic disorder characterized by elevated levels of glucose in the blood due to defects in insulin secretion, insulin action, or both resulting in hyperglycaemia. The main goal of insulin therapy is to limit the progression of long term diabetic complications with either type1 or type2 diabetes mellitus. Aim: A study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of planned teaching programme (PTP) on knowledge regarding insulin therapy among diabetic patients attending OPD of selected hospitals of Sri Muktsar Sahib, Punjab. Material And Methods: Quantitative evaluative approach and Pre experimental one group pre- test, post- test design was adopted. Sample included 50 diabetic patients were selected by using Non- Probability Convenient sampling technique. Data was collected through structured interview schedule. Results: The study findings revealed that pre test mean knowledge score was 12.70 with SD 2.485 and post test mean knowledge score was 21.86 with SD 1.927, there was statistically significant increase in post-test knowledge (p<0.001). These findings indicated that the planned teaching programme (PTP) was effective. Hence, hypothesis H1 is accepted. Findings of the study also indicated that there was statistically significant association of the post test knowledge scores of subjects with using insulin therapy from except other variables. Hence, hypothesis H2 is accepted for using insulin therapy and rejected for other socio demographic variables. Conclusion: The study concluded that baseline knowledge of diabetic patients inadequate regarding insulin therapy. Urgent steps are needed to improve the knowledge of diabetic patients to create appropriate awareness regarding insulin therapy. The study recommended that a comparative study can be conducted to assess the knowledge regarding insulin therapy among rural vs. urban people.
