Abstract:
The Study of Assistance Nurses on the Training Needs Related to Disaster Nursing
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2002
Conference Date:July, 2002
Author:Wang, Wei-Fang
P.I. Institution Name:National Cheng Kung University Hospital
Objective: The purposes of this study are to: 1.explore the demographic characteristics of assistance nurses, 2.understand the training needs related to disaster nursing from assistance nurses, 3.examine the relationship between demographic characteristics and the training needs related to disaster nursing, 4.analysis the predictor variables of training needs related to disaster nursing. Design: This study was a cross-sectional survey research. In order to select the subjects who were assisted medication in the disaster area for the Great 921 Earthquake from the southern Taiwan, the purposive sampling was implemented in the study. The questionnaire was sent to three qualified hospitals, Chi-Mei Hospital, National Cheng Kung University Hospital, and Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital. Method: Subjects: The nurses were from these medical centers and qualified as followings: 1. practiced the nursing care in the 921 Great Earthquake area during 09/21/99 to 10/30/99; 2. severed in the disaster area more than 8 hours; 3. have no dead or injured in the families or relatives, nor major damage on their property; 4. voluntarily participated in the study after understanding the purpose of the study. Among 157 disaster assistance nurses, 146 agreed to participate and complete the questionnaires. Instrument: The questionnaire was developed based on the literatures and expert experiences. The content modified by expert validity and pilot test. Reliability coefficient on the training needs scale, the value of Cronbach's Alpha was .93(n=146). The re-test was down two weeks later, and the value was .80 by ICC (Intra-Class Correlation, n=33). Data collection and Analysis: The rate of returned questionnaires was 94.81%. The statistic software SPSS 8.0 was implemented to analysis data. The inferential statistic was included t-Test, one-way ANOVA, Pearson's correlation, Spearman rank correlation, and stepwise multiple regression. Finding: There were 23 items in the training needs scale. The total score of training needs ranged 49-92. The mean of training needs score was 3.46, SD=0.40 (rang 1-4 point). The top 3 priority of training needs were Basic Life Support (3.72, SD=0.58), Incident Command System (3.68, SD=0.55), Traumatic Patients Nursing Care (3.62, SD=0.56). The strength of training needs related disaster nursing was 86.5 %. There was the significant difference on service section. The score of training needs from the subjects who served in emergency department was higher than other units. The Stepwise Multiple Regression Analysis was utilized to predict the factors of training needs. The number of basic needs was the predictor in training needs, which explained 16.6% total variance. Conclusion & Suggestions: The training needs of disaster assistance nurses were strong (86.5%). The predictor was basic needs. The predictors explained 16.6% of total variance of training needs. The relationship between the training needs and perceptions was showing positive correlation (r=.18, p< .05). According to the result, suggestions were the followings: 1.to develop the disaster nursing training programs; 2.to drill the mass patients and the accidence happening; 3.to encourage the nurses with the pre-hospital experience; 4.to study further topics about the disaster assistance nurses, in order to improve the quality of disaster nursing.
