Development and Evaluation of a Web-based Education Program to Reduce Restraint Use for Nursing Home Caregivers
Kong, Eun-Hi
This study was done to develop and evaluate a web-based education program to reduce restraint use by nursing caregivers in nursing homes.
A web-based education program was developed and the effect was examined using a randomized, single-blind, control-group pretest-posttest design. Seventy-six nursing caregivers in one nursing home participated in this study (38 in the experimental group and 38 in the control group). The experimental group received the web-based education which consisted of six sessions. Data were collected at baseline and postintervention using three instruments to measure nursing caregivers' knowledge, perception, and attitudes to restraints.
Demographic and dependent variables did not differ between the two groups. There were statistically significant effects of the web-based education on nursing caregiver's knowledge (t=6.59, p<.001), perception (t=-3.54, p=.001), and attitudes (t=2.58, p=.012; t=-2.51, p=.014) regarding restraints.
The results indicate that web-based education is an effective intervention to improve nursing caregivers' knowledge, perception, and attitudes regarding restraints. Future study needs to investigate effects of the web-based education on the reduction of restraint use, and to compare the effects of web-based education with effects of other interventions.
