Effects of a Memory Training Program Using Efficacy Sources on Memory Improvement in Elderly People
Abstract:
Effects of a Memory Training Program Using Efficacy Sources on Memory Improvement in Elderly People
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:June, 2001
Author:Kim, Jeong
P.I. Institution Name:Kyunghee University
Objective: The purpose was to develop an effective memory-training program for elderly people and to identify the effects of the memory training program. Design: This study was a quasi-experimental study to confirm the effects of a memory-training program using efficacy sources. Population, Sample, Setting, Years: This study was carried out between February 24 and July 18, 1999 and the subjects of the study were 102 elderly people who were participants at a welfare institute in Seoul. Concept or Variables Studied Together or Intervention and Outcome Variables: Memory self-efficacy was measured using the Memory Self-Efficacy Scale (Berry & Dennehey, 1989). Memory performance was measured by the word list (Cho Sung Won, 1995) and the face recognition task (Face Recognition Task developed for this study). Methods: The experimental group (51) and the control group (51) were assigned by means of participation order. The experimental group participated in the memory-training program. The memory-training program was given twice a week for two weeks with each program lasting two hours. Findings: 1.The experimental group which participated in the Memory Training Program showed higher memory self-efficacy scores as compared to the control group (t=4.354, P=.0001). 2.The experimental group which participated in the Memory Training Program showed higher memory performance scores as compared to the control group (t=7.500, P=.0001). The memory performance involved an immediate word recall task, a delayed word recall task, a word recognition task, and the face recognition task. Conclusions: The results showed that memory self-efficacy and memory performance improved following the Memory Training Program including the memory process, changes in memory with aging, and appropriate use of memory strategies. Implications: Memory in elderly people was found to increase control, therefore, it is proposed that a Memory Training Program is an effective nursing intervention for improving memory in elderly people and, also, in people with complaints of memory loss.
