21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this study is to describe what Taiwanese home healthcare (HHC) nurse managers expected and gained from participating in a US HHC learning tour. Methods: The data collected from before, during, and after the learning tour. Data collection methods included: 1) focus groups from before and during the tour; 2) self-reflection diaries written during the tour; and 3) individual interviews conducted six month after tour. Conventional content analysis was used to analyze the data. Results: Three themes reflecting the participants' expectations for the tour were: 1) learning major HHC issues; and 2) observing US HHC practice. During the tour, the participants reported what they gained from the learning tour, including: 1) learned ways of developing the tools to enhance HHC effectiveness; 2) identified patient outcomes as HHC quality indicators; and 3) shared their vision of future HHC development. Six months after the tour, participants reported that they had gained three insights from the experience, including: 1) inspiration for various ways to help HHC advance in Taiwan; 2) understanding of the need to encourage knowledge sharing; and 3) increasing awareness of social/cultural differences. Conclusion: The results support that an international learning tour can not only benefit to the participants' personal and professional development but also to their organizations and the professional community at large.
