Abstract

Introduction: Menstruation is the monthly expulsion of the uterine endometrial lining when ovulation does not result in fertilization. Recently, menstrual blood has garnered attention as a valuable source due to the presence of versatile stem cells, making it a prospective resource for future applications. This study seeks to examine the understanding and perspectives of staff nurses concerning menstrual blood banking. Aim of the study: To evaluate the understanding and perspective concerning menstrual blood banking among staff nurses in designated hospitals in Kolar. Material and Method: A preliminary study was conducted on 60 nursing staff members at R. Jalappa Hospital and Research Centre in Kolar. Non-probability convenience sampling was employed to select participants, with data collection taking place from March 17th to July 16th, 2023, utilizing structured knowledge questionnaires and attitude scales. The data were analysed using both descriptive and inferential statistical methods. Result: The study findings indicate that a majority (58.03%) of the staff nurses possessed moderate knowledge concerning menstrual blood banking. Additionally, the research demonstrated a notable correlation between the level of knowledge and various socio-demographic variables. Moreover, the respondents exhibited a favourable attitude towards menstrual blood banking, with most expressing positivity. Furthermore, a significant relationship was observed between knowledge and attitude towards menstrual blood banking. Conclusion: It can be emphasized that nursing staffs possess a moderate level of knowledge concerning menstrual blood banking and exhibit a favourable attitude towards it. Moreover, there exists a correlation between the knowledge and attitude towards menstrual blood banking.

KEY WORDS: Knowledge, attitude, menstrual blood banking, menstruation, fertilization.
