Abstract
Objective: To find out if there are any significant differences between these women's knowledge in the management of Breast Self-Examination in study and control group regarding some variables.

Methodology: A quasi-experimental design was used. A purposive "non-probability" sample of (260) women who are employee and students in both colleges (Nursing and Health and Medical Technologies) was selected. The sample consists of two groups, experimental group (130) includes those in (Nursing college), and control group (130) in (Health and Medical Technologies). A questionnaire was constructed which included demographic information, reproductive information, family history, previous medical history, and information about women's knowledge in managing breast-self examination (BSE). Data were collected through the use of the questionnaire, the application of the educational program. A post-test was done for the study only which uses the lectures, booklet, training practices of BSE, and video film. Data analysis was performed through the application of descriptive and inferential statistical approaches.

Results: There are significant associations between women's knowledge regarding managing BSE and their marital status, infertility status, lactation and second degree consanguinity; also the study concluded that the educational program of BSE is necessary for all women in different age groups, with different medical histories, educational level, occupational status, and considered as an effective mean for the reinforcement of improvement of women's knowledge regarding managing BSE.

Recommendations: Implementation of proposed model of continuous medical education for women for BSE within the scope of their work.

Abstract
Objective: To identify the effectiveness of instruction oriented intervention for primipara women upon episiotomy and self perineal care.

Methodology: A quasi-experimental study was carried out to determine the effectiveness of instruction-oriented intervention for primipara women upon episiotomy and self-perineal care. A purposive "non-probability" sample of (60) primipara mothers was selected from Ibn AL-Balady Pediatric and Maternity Hospital, Al-russafa, Baghdad. The sample has been divided into two groups; (30) primipara women who were considered as a study group, and another (30) primipara women who were considered as a control one. The study group was exposed to an instruction-oriented intervention. While, the control group was not exposed to the intervention. A questionnaire was developed as a tool of data collection for the purpose of the study. A pilot study was carried out to test the reliability of the questionnaire for the period from March 13th to March 25th, 2009. Data were analyzed through the application of descriptive and inferential statistical data analysis approach.

Results: The results have revealed that the study group participants had benefit from the implementation of instructional intervention and dramatic change had occurred in their episiotomy and self-perineal care knowledge. The study concluded that the majority of mothers had adequately met their needs of perineal care, cleanliness of the perineum, using ice pack, taking a soothing bath tube, dry heat, refrain from the marital relationship (coitus), mothers nutrition to prevent constipation, used bath room, pelvic muscle exercise, follow-up were adequately met.

Recommendations: The study recommended that the oriented instructional intervention can be presented to all pregnant mothers who are attending the primary health care centers. Moreover, an instructional intervention might be useful if it is constructed and implemented in the hospital for women with episiotomy.
