Abstract Share this page

A random sample of 562 students completed a questionnaire including demographic data; 20 questions testing knowledge (right answers scored 1 and wrong answers 0); and 20 exploring attitudes ('yes', 'not sure' and 'no'). Overall, students scored 0.49 for knowledge and 2.30 (of a maximum 3) for attitude. Knowledge scores were classified into high, average and low, and attitudes grouped according to those involving importance, applying and resources. Analysis using Student's t-test found significantly higher mean scores for females in high knowledge, attitude to importance and overall attitude; for 18-23 year olds vs. 24-29 year olds for attitude to importance; for 'science' colleges vs. 'literary' colleges for all categories except high knowledge; for training for attitude to resources; and for study for all categories except low knowledge. One-way ANOVA across years of university attendance showed no significant difference. Individuals were grouped into those with excellent, medium and poor knowledge and one-way ANOVA performed across these groups for all the categories of knowledge and attitude. The results showed a close correlation between knowledge and attitude. More training and coursework in first aid at Kuwait University appears to be warranted, with males and those in 'literary' colleges especially targeted.
