Abstract


Objective: This study was conducted to compare the effectiveness of booklet media and a community-based interactive approach (CBIA) on nonmedical
science students. The study
was
conducted
at the Departments of Pedagogy
and Forestry
at the University
of Tanjungpura,
Pontianak.
Methods: The study design was pre-experimental with a pre- and post-test of the respondents, who were divided into groups that either carried out
the CBIA or were given a booklet. There were 78 respondents who participated in the study until its completion. Scores of knowledge, behaviors, and
attitudes were measured with questionnaires, both before and 6 weeks after interventions with the CBIA and the booklet.
Results: The results demonstrate that both the CBIA and the booklet intervention significantly influence the level of knowledge, attitudes, and
behaviors (p<0.05).
Conclusions: Although the distribution of the booklets was more effective than the CBIA method in improving the self-medication attitude of the
students, both interventions were equally effective in improving the self-medication knowledge and behavior of the non-medical science students.
