Background and Aim: Diabetes is one of the most common chronic metabolic diseases. If there is no action to prevent, control and treat it, there will be many problems for the community. The aim of this study was to evaluate the knowledge, attitude, and performance of high school girl students of the second period in Birjand regarding diabetes and its related factors.
Materials and Methods: This Cross-Sectional analytical study examined 362 high school girl students of the second period in Birjand in 2016-2017. The sampling method was multi-stage clustering. Data collection was done by a self-made questionnaire which confirmed its content validity by 7 faculty members of the university. To verify the reliability of the questionnaire, Cronbach's alpha coefficient was 0.78 for questions, 0.64 for attitude questions and 0.67 for performance questions. Finally, the data were analyzed by SPSS(Version 19) software, independent t test, one-way ANOVA and Tukey's post hoc test at a significant level of α = 0.05.
Results: The mean score of students' knowledge was 5.2 ± 1.27 at a poor level, the mean score of attitude was 21.9 ± 10.9 ± 9.9 and at the mean level and the mean performance score was 14.8 ± 8.8 and was on moderate. Also, Knowledge and attitude score in experimental students was significantly higher than those in mathematics and technology (P <0.001).
Conclusion: Knowledge score in students about diabetes and its related factors is poor and their attitude and performance at the moderate level. Since there is a direct relationship between the individual's knowledge of one issue and his vision and performance, the organization of health education sessions in this regard and the addition of information to textbooks are needed to improve and raise awareness and prevent diabetes.
