       This study determined the effect of an infomercial on the level of knowledge on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) among traffic enforcers of Cebu City Transportation Office (CCTO). A single group pre-test post-test design was employed involving 17 participants for the study obtained through purposive sampling. The infomercial was developed using different theories of multimedia and visual science and was presented at the CCTO education room. Outcome of the intervention on the knowledge on COPD was measured using the standardized Bristol COPD Knowledge Questionnaire, with a score range of 0 to 30. Item analysis was conducted which became the basis of enhancing the intervention.

       Baseline knowledge on COPD was measured and revealed that all 17 participants had low knowledge with a mean pre-test score of (12.94 ±2.77). COPD knowledge was measured immediately and two weeks after intervention. A post-test mean score of (23.82±2.77) on knowledge score was obtained immediately after the intervention while two weeks after, knowledge is still high with a mean score of (22.35±1.8). Repeated-Measures ANOVA with Greenhouse-Geisser adjustment showed a significant difference in the knowledge scores of COPD from pre-test to post-tests with 0.05 level of significance, with F(1.329,21.261)=21.79 and p

       The infomercial produced by the researchers had an effect on the respondents' level of knowledge on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
