Knowledge about the Examination System and Recognition for the Roles of Health Educator in Health College Students
Kim, Hyojin ; Jeon, Misoon ;
The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 17, issue 2, 2014, Pages 57~63
DOI : 10.7587/kjrehn.2014.57
Purpose: This study was to survey the recognition for the roles of health educator and knowledge about the examination system in health college students at a university located in Chungnam. Methods: The participants were 140 health college students. The survey was conducted using a questionnaire consists of 10 items. The knowledge about the examination system was checked for 9 items with a five-point scale. Recognition for the roles of health educator was divided into four categories from know very well to do not know at all. The data were analyzed using SPSS 18.0 program. Results: In this study, the mean score of knowledge about the examination system was 1.95 points out of 5, and the mean score of recognition for the roles of health educator was 3.01 points out of 4. According to the general characteristics, there were statistically significant differences in their knowledge about the examination system for health educator regarding their gender (p=.034) and grade (p<.001). Recognition for the roles of health educator showed a statistically significant difference only in their grade (p<.001). Conclusion: These results provide the basic data to prepare the necessary measures for the revitalization and promotion of the health educators.

Kim, Su Youn ;
The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 17, issue 2, 2014, Pages 64~71
DOI : 10.7587/kjrehn.2014.64
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the quality of recovery and influential factors on the quality of recovery after cardiac surgery. Methods: 198 patients undergone cardiac surgery were asked to fill in a self-reported questionnaire about the quality of recovery, anxiety, depression including social support at discharge. The collected data were analyzed with mean, standard deviation, correlation and stepwised multiple regression. Results: The mean scores of quality of recovery at discharge after cardiac surgery was 2.04 on a 3 point scale. Influential factors on the quality of recovery after cardiac surgery were depression(p=.001) and anxiety(p=.027), which disclosed 44.2% of explanation. Depression was the most influential factor. Conclusion: The influential factors on the quality of recovery at discharge after cardiac surgery were depression and anxiety. More studies will be required to reduce depression and anxiety in patients undergone cardiac surgery.
Influencing Factors on the Stages of Change of Exercise in Patients with Low Back Pain
Lee, Hyea Kyung ; Shin, Eun Hee ; Hwang, Seon Mi ;
The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 17, issue 2, 2014, Pages 72~80
DOI : 10.7587/kjrehn.2014.72
Purpose: The objective of this study was to analyze the factors affecting the stages of exercise behaviors changes of low back pain patients. Methods: The participants in this study were 220 low back pain patients who have been treated by therapeutic exercise or had the exercise treatment under the doctor's advice. The tools used for this study were the stages of exercise behavior change, intrinsic motivation questionnaires, and physical activity social support scale (PASS). Results: The group that did exercise (preparation stage, maintenance stage, action stage) was 75.9% but the group that did not exercise (precontemplation stage, contemplation stage) was 24.1%. Social supports from family members and friends and motivation affected the exercise behaviors changes. And 34.6% of the exercise behavior change can be explained by the social support (family, friend) and motivation. Conclusion: There were two recommendations for maintaining the exercise behaviors of low back pain patients based on theoretical background. First, we recommended more exercise programs which reinforce social supports from family and friend for constant exercise behaviors of low back pain patients. Second, more exercise programs for the low back pain patients who have similar health goals or problems were needed for motivating them to join the exercise programs.
Influence of Job Stress and Professional Self-concept on Job Satisfaction among Nurses in Rehabilitation Units
Ko, Jung Ok ; Ko, Eun ;
The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 17, issue 2, 2014, Pages 81~89
DOI : 10.7587/kjrehn.2014.81
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to define the relationships between job stress, professional self-concept, and job satisfaction among nurses in rehabilitation units and to identify factors that influence job satisfaction. Methods: This study surveyed 240 nurses working at the rehabilitation units of 10 hospitals located in G City. To collect the data, nurses' job stress, the professional self-concept of nurses instrument (PSCNI), and the Korean-Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (K-MSQ) were used. The data were analyzed through t-tests, ANOVA, Pearson's correlation coefficient, and multiple regression using the SPSS/WIN 18.0 program. Results: The scores for job stress, professional self-concept, and job satisfaction were
, respectively. Job satisfaction and job stress showed a low-level negative correlation with statistical significance (r=-.13, p=.042), whereas a medium-level positive correlation was found between job satisfaction and professional self-concept (r=.46, p<.001). Job stress, professional self-concept, total career length and size of working hospital explained approximately 25.8% of job satisfaction (F=17.52, p<.001). Conclusion: Considering the results in this study, it is necessary to develop a practical educational program to establish positive professional self-concept for nurses in rehabilitation units. Such efforts must be supported by clinical nursing administrations through policies aimed at reducing job stress and increasing job satisfaction.
Effects of Simulation based Training using a Post-operating Rehabilitation Case on Learning Outcomes
Oh, Hye Kyung ; Jeon, Eun Young ;
The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 17, issue 2, 2014, Pages 90~96
DOI : 10.7587/kjrehn.2014.90
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of simulation based training using a post-operating rehabilitation case on learning outcomes in nursing students. Methods: A quasi-experimental research design (one group pretest and posttest design) and a questionnaire for measuring learning outcomes were used in this study. The participants were 35 students in a college of nursing. Data were collected before the program and immediately after the program that applied simulation based training using a post-operating rehabilitation case consisted of 4th running and debriefing for 26 hours. With SAS 9.2 program, descriptive statistics and paired t-test were used to analyze the data. Results: There were statistically significant increases in necessity (p=.001) and performance of learning outcome (p<.001) of simulation based training using a post-operating rehabilitation case among students in a college of nursing. Conclusion: The findings of this study demonstrate that simulation based training using a post-operating rehabilitation case for nursing students may increase performance of learning outcomes on clinical reasoning and critical thinking.

Park, Youngrye ; Wee, Hwee ;
The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 17, issue 2, 2014, Pages 97~103
DOI : 10.7587/kjrehn.2014.97
Purpose: This study was conducted to identify the knowledge, attitude, and preventive health behavior of cancer in middle-aged men and to provide data for education program regarding cancer prevention. Methods: This study was a descriptive research using a questionnaire, which included 20 items for knowledge, 10 items for attitude, and 18 items for preventive health behavior of cancer. Data were collected from 140 middle-aged men. Descriptive statistics, t-test, one-way ANOVA and Pearson's correlation coefficients, and stepwise multiple regression analysis were used with SPSS/WIN 18.0 to analyze the data. Results: The mean score for knowledge of cancer was 11.58 (range 0~20), for attitude, 37.52 (range 5~50), and for preventive health behavior of cancer, 58.85 (range 18~90). Preventive health behavior of cancer showed a significantly positive correlation with knowledge (r=.27, p=.001) and attitude (r=.31, p<.001) toward cancer. In stepwise multiple regression analysis, knowledge and attitude toward cancer were significant factors affecting preventive health behavior of cancer. Those variables explained 12.5% of cancer preventive behavior. Conclusion: In order to develop a cancer prevention education program for middle-aged men, accurate knowledge and improving attitude should be considered. Furthermore, it is necessary to do further study with a larger random sample according to lifespan.
