Abstract:
Session presented on Monday, November 9, 2015 and Tuesday, November 10, 2015: Purpose: The purpose of this study�is to identify the effects of the fall prevention guideline on fall attitude, fall knowledge, and fall prevention self-efficacy of care workers in a long-term care facility. Method: The research design of this study is a nonequivalent control group pretest-posttest design. The subjects consisted of 58 care workers in a long-term care facility in Seoul, South Korea. The number of participants in the experimental group was 27 and the control group had 31 participants. Participants in experimental group were provided�the fall prevention guideline program�for�12 times, once a week. The structure-questionnaire consists of fall attitude, fall knowledge, and fall prevention self-efficacy. The collected data were analyzed using SPSS 22.0 program which utilized paired t-test, independent t-test. To examine the effect of the fall prevention guideline in a long-term care facility�based on the pretest and posttest, a paired t-test was used. An independent t-test was performed to determine if there were differences between the experimental and control groups. Results: Following the independent t-test analysis in this study, attitude (t=2.19, p =0.02) and efficacy (t=1.91, p =0.03) in experimental group were significantly higher than control group. Following the paired t-test, knowledge (t=2.01, p =0.03) and efficacy (t=2.53, p =0.01) were observed to be improved in experimental group. On the contrast, it is observed that attitude (t=-3.18, p =0.00), and knowledge (t=3.17, p =0.00) is significantly regressed in control group. Conclusion: The finding of this study suggests that the fall prevention guideline has an effect on fall prevention self-efficacy of care workers in a long-term care facility. Thus, implementing the fall prevention guideline in long-term care facilities�will facilitate systematical fall prevention approach and enable to�decrease�fall rate of older adults living in long-term care facilities. The longer term development and practical application of the fall prevention guideline is recommended for intervention. Keywords: fall prevention, fall attitude, fall knowledge, self-efficacy
