Abstract

Introduction: Maternal mortality can be reduced by strengthening the process of early detection of high-risk pregnancies. However, the lack of knowledge related to high-risk pregnancy is still an obstacle. This study aims to analyze the effect of health education on the knowledge and attitudes of cadres about early detection of high-risk pregnancy in the working area of Health Centre Mamajang Makassar City. Methods: Experimental research with a pretest protest design with a control group, involving 80 cadres spread across 20 Integrated Service Posts who were divided into four treatment groups. Results: There was an increase in mean knowledge between the intervention group (p = 0.000) and the control group (p = 0.002). There was also an increase in attitude between the intervention group (p = 0.000). However, there was no improvement in attitude (p = 0.475) in the control group. The intervention group through combined video+booklet had the highest mean knowledge score (6.65-13.90) than the groups that received intervention through video (6.60-12.69) or booklet alone (6.75-12.07), respectively. On attitude, the highest average attitude score in the intervention group was the combined video+booklet group (22.0-35.8), video (21.22-34.65) and booklet alone (22.25-34.55). While the average score of the control group on knowledge (6.00-6.95) and attitude (22.60-23.05). Conclusion: The role of health education by involving a combination of both video and booklet media is appropriate as an effort to influence Integrated Service Post cadres in increasing knowledge and attitudes about the early detection of high-risk pregnancies.
