Abstract

BACKGROUND: The low activity of community-based surveillance (CBS) cadres reflects the inadequate implementation of the CBS program. It can hinder the CBS program’s success.

AIM: This study aimed to increase the activeness of CBS cadres through interpersonal communication and module development.

METHODS: This research was a quasi-experimental research with the non-randomized pre-test and post-test control group design. This study’s population was all 48 cadres of CBS. They were not active in several subdistricts, including Tanete Riaja subdistrict, Barru subdistrict, Balusu subdistrict, and Mallusetasi subdistrict. The intervention sample was 20 people in the Tanete Riaja subdistrict. The control sample was 20 people scattered in the subdistricts of Barru, Balusu, and Mallusetasi, obtained by purposive sampling. Data analysis used the Chi-square test.

RESULTS: There are differences in the increase before and after the interpersonal communication intervention and module development, from 0% to 65%. There was a difference in increasing activeness in the interpersonal communication intervention group and module development compared to the control group, which was only given module development (0.011).

CONCLUSION: There were differences in the increased activity before and after interpersonal communication intervention and module development. There was a higher increase in the interpersonal communication intervention group and module development than only module intervention. It is suggested that the health office provides modules and interpersonal communication training to CBS cadres.
