Knowledge and performance of delirium care is important for caregivers of older people and in particular older postsurgical patients. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a delirium care education program for Korean-Chinese caregivers.
A nonequivalent control group pretest-posttest design was used. Participants were 55 Korean-Chinese caregivers caring for elderly patients with delirium (27 in the experimental group and 28 in the control group) from one hospital in Seoul. The delirium care education program, which consisted of discussion on the experience of caring for patients with delirium, lecture, and quiz, was given individually. Effects were evaluated through pre-and post-tests that included measurement of knowledge and performance of delirium care.
After the delirium care education knowledge of delirium care significantly increased in the experimental group compared to the control group. There was no significant improvement in either group in the performance of delirium care after delirium care education.
The findings of this study provide evidence for the potential utility of the delirium care education program for Korean-Chinese caregivers. This program could allow caregivers to provide quality care, and ultimately contribute to achieving excellence in delirium patient care.
