ABSTRACT: Aim: To develop the educational aids for parents of children having colostomy and test its effectiveness. Methods: Two educational aids in the form of booklet and a video film (computer disk) were developed and these were used to teach care of colostomy to parents (n = 120) of children having anorectal malformations or Hirschsprung's disease. Results: It was found that the developed educational aids were effective in order to provide knowledge and skill to the parents (p 0.05). Conclusions: There is a great need to develop the educational aids for parents, subsequently these can be used to teach procedures for long term home management of the children born with congenital anomalies.
