Self instructional discharge protocol for cancer patients helps nurses to provide uniform and wholesome package of discharge instruction for cancer patients. This helps to boost the image of the nurses as an indispensable member of the health care team with their own scientific body of knowledge and scope of practice. The discharge protocol instruction should be useful for all cancer patients
The post test level of knowledge of nurses in control group showed that the mean score was with SD of and the post test level of practice showed mean score of with SD of . The calculated Karl Pearson 'r' value was -, which showed negative correlation between the post test level of knowledge and practice of the nurses in the control group at p& lt .
The overall post test mean of practice in experimental group was with of and the overall post test mean of practice in control group was with of . The mean differed practice was . This showed that after the administration of self instructional discharge protocol, there was a highly significant improvement in the practice level of nurses with a 't' value of at p& lt in experimental group.
Education has a positive impact on retention of knowledge, attitude and practice in all staff. There is a need to develop a system of continuing education to reduce the incidence of errors during discharge instruction.

The researcher adopted a quasi experimental post test only design to assess the effectiveness of self instructional discharge protocol for cancer patients on knowledge and practice among nurses. 65 nurses were selected using non probability convenient sampling technique.
The post test level of knowledge of nurses in the experimental group showed that the mean score was with SD of in experimental group and the post test level of practice shows mean score of with SD of . The calculated Karl Pearson 'r' value was , which showed moderate correlation between the post test level of knowledge and practice of the nurses in the experimental group at p& lt .
As I passed through the gates I heard a squeaky voice. A diminutive middle-aged man came out from behind the trees 656 the caretaker. He worked a toothbrush-sized stick around in his mouth, digging into the crevices between algae'd stubs of teeth. He was barefoot he wore a blue batik shirt known as a buba, baggy purple trousers, and an embroidered skullcap. I asked him if he would show me around the shrine. Motioning me to follow, he spat out the results of his stick work and set off down the trail.
