  • 본 연구는 B시의 요양보호사 교육원의 교육생 230명을 대상으로 학습동기가 학습몰입에 미치는 영향을 알아보고자 하였다. 내재적 학습동기와 외재적 학습동기가 학습몰입과 상관관계를 가지고 있었으며, 학습과제에 대한 몰입은 학습동기가 증가될수록 높아지는 성향을 나타내었다. 그러나 외제적 학습동기보다 내재적 학습동기가 학습몰입과 더 높은 상관관계를 가지고 있는 것으로 나타났다. 따라서, 학습몰입은 내재적 학습 동기 뿐 아니라 사회적 성공동기와 상대적 유능성 동기와 같은 외재적 동기와도 부분적인 상관관계를 나타내고 있었다. 요양보호사 인력양성의 발전을 요양보호사 교육에 대한 다각적인 측면의 연구가 필요한 것으로 보인다.

  • Objectives: This study aimed to determine the effects on musculoskeletal symptoms of both social demographic features and detailed characteristics of each task category of care workers who offer visiting home-help services. And to establish the measures that can reduce musculoskeletal symptoms among care workers. Methods: This study was conducted among 192 care workers from welfare centers C and K located in city P. After participants completed the task burden checklist regarding the scale of musculoskeletal symptoms and the details of their duties, the data collected were analyzed using the SPSS 21.0 program. Results: According to the degree of observable musculoskeletal symptoms in care workers, the highest figures were observed for back and shoulder pain. Based on the results of assessing the effect of detailed task category characteristics on musculoskeletal symptoms, "helping patients eat, helping patients move, helping patients bath, and changing body positions" were found to have an effect from the physical care category, "providing physical therapy assistance, treating bedsores" from the health care category, and "cleaning and doing laundry" from the facility management category. Conclusions: Due to the high proportion of patients requiring burdensome physical labor from care workers such as moving patients who have trouble doing so on their own, helping them change positions, and so on, it is highly likely that pain will occur in the low back, which carries most of the physical weight. So, education on human epidemiological positions that can reduce overload on areas prone to pain such as the low back and shoulders is essential. Proper equipment and personnel support must be provided for dangerous tasks. Further, multidimensional social support is required consistently.
