Abstract

Puberty is an important period in human's life, affecting the quality of life among the adolescents. This study investigates the effect of peer education on puberty. Aquasi-experimental intervention study was conducted involving 303 adolescent girls living in rural areas of Qazvin were. Participants were divided into 2 groups and then trained in 6 weeks, one of them by healthcare experts and another by peers. The Iranian version of the WHOQOL-BREF questionnaire was served as the research tool. Two weeks after the training sessions finished, Questionnaires focusing on the quality of life were filled by both groups. Data analysis was performed using the SPSS version 21. A P-value of < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. The score of adolescents' quality of life in the group trained by peers was higher than the group trained by health care experts in all aspects. In the physical aspect, this difference was statistically significant (P < 0.003). A different quality of life mean score before and after the intervention was also observed. Training exerted by Peers can improve quality of life more effective than what conducted by health care experts. The use of this method is suggested in adolescents' health education.
