The aim of the training on testicular cancer and Testicular Self Examination is to increase the awareness of individuals and to develop health behaviors for early diagnosis. However, in the literature, it is seen that in the training studies conducted on this subject, mostly the training videos and presentations are made with the classical expression method. In this study, unlike other studies, the effect of the training given with the Flipped Learning Model on the knowledge and beliefs of male students regarding testicular cancer and Testicular Self Examination will be examined. It is thought that the results of the study to be obtained will guide health professionals in the selection of teaching models to increase the effectiveness of training activities to be planned for young adult males for the early diagnosis of testicular cancer.
It is very important for children to take their own health responsibilities in giving them positive health behavior. The rapid advancement of technology, cultural differences, changing living conditions, and increasing chronic diseases show us that people should have the authority to make decisions about their own health, starting from primary school and childhood. All these bring the concept of health literacy to the fore. According to WHO, the concept of health literacy is the cognitive and social skills about individuals' ability to access, understand and use information and their desires in order to protect and improve well-being in health. Providing appropriate health education for age groups is very important for the development of health literacy in children. School-based health education is necessary for health promotion in the 21st century. Studies show that children's health literacy levels are low. There are very few scales that measure health literacy in children. Although there are no school health nursing practices in Northern Cyprus, there are no training programs to develop positive health behaviors. With this study we have planned, it is aimed to implement a training program within the scope of the "School Health Nursing Program" in primary schools selected as a pilot in Northern Cyprus and to form the foundations of School health nursing in our country in line with its results. In addition, measurement tools specific to age groups are needed to measure the level of health literacy, especially in school-age children. Therefore, another purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of this program on children by implementing an education program within the scope of the "School Health Nursing Program", which will be a first in our country, and to develop the "Child Health Literacy Scale" and to make it a significant contribution to science with this scale.
