[Research Presentation] The skill mix model was adopted in several hospitals to solve the problem of nursing staff shortage after the Department of Health of Taiwan had developed the health care assistants (HCAs) training program in 2003.á The purpose of this study was to explore the nurses' perspective of working with HCAs, as well as to further understand the impact on adopting the skill mix model clinically.áA convenience sample of 40 nurses was taken from 3 internal medicine wards of a medical center in northern Taiwan, where the staff mix included HCAs allocation.á Results showed that within 41 tasks performed by HCAs, 10 were selected by over 50% respondents in both the "delegation most" and "effect on staff workload" sections.áIn terms of the nurses' perspective of the skill mix model, over 55% of nurses positively perceived client care and working relationships between HCAs and nurses. However, only 25% and 35% respondents expressed satisfaction with HCA's level of expertise and working performance, respectively.á No statistical significance was found between demographic data and nurses' perspective of HCAs.áThese results contributed to understanding the attributes of HCAs in a nursing care context and providing reference value with regards to the implementation of the skill mix model.
