Abstract
Purpose
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the need for education on behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) for certified nursing caregivers (CNCs) in nursing homes (NHs).
Methods
A convenience sample of 134 CNCs (mean age=53.63±6.44; Female 97.8%) working for more than one month in NHs (N=6) located in Seoul City or Kyoungi Province was recruited. Participants were asked to complete a questionnaire about the necessity and the importance of education about BPSD on a scale of 1 (never) to 5 (very much).
Results
Highest scores for the necessity and the importance of education were for understanding of BPSD (mean score=4.38±.54, 4.35±.53, respectively) followed by understanding dementia and general management approaches for BPSD. The most necessary and important BPSDs identified for education were aggression and depression. The degree of necessity and importance of education differed significantly (p<.10) according to frequency of CNCs’ participation in education programs on dementia.
Conclusion
Findings of this study provide a useful basis as to which areas of education would be helpful for CNCs working in NHs. Development of educational programs with various educational methods targeted to satisfy the educational needs identified in this study would be valuable.
