The calculated “T” value 27.71) was greater than the table value (1.98) at 0.05 level of significance. The Planned teaching was effective in increasing the Knowledge regarding Prevention of lung cancer among industrial worker. Chi-square test to associate the level of knowledge and selected demographic variable.
