Abstract


Purpose : It is enough articles to infer that the difference in the educational background of physical therapists will cause a change in the needs of CE and start the research. However, physical therapists have no research on it. The purpose of this paper is to look at educational needs based on the academic background to improve continuing education (CE) for physical therapists in Republic of Korea.

Methods : The study was conducted on two occasions on April 12, 2015 and July 19, 2015 with 431 out of 563 participants in CE at Gwangju Metropolitan City. 350 people who attended the CE were selected for analysis of the need of the education from the Korean Physical Therapy Association. Final education was classified as college, university, and master of science course (MSc) or higher. Authors selected 11 subjects such as basic education, musculoskeletal system, nervous system, pediatric, cardiopulmonary, sports, senior citizens, physical therapy, women, oriental medicine, others. Simple linear regression analysis was performed using dummy variable to identify the needs of the CE according to academic background.

Results : The need for CE in the MSc or higher was greater than college graduation in the nervous system (R2=.019, B=.347), pediatric (R2=.028, B=.491), cardiopulmonary system (R2=.038, B=.600), sports (R2=.037, B=.584), geriatric (R2=.030, B=.261), oriental (R2=.033, B=.597), and others (R2=.028, B=.531). University graduation was lower than college graduation in the need of physical agents (R2=.037, B=-.277).

Conclusion : No meaningful statistical results were found, even though the need for CE was greater to MSc or higher than college or university graduation with physical therapists. We think that a wider survey of CE will be needed, and the efforts are constantly required both the Korean physical therapy association and people who working as physiotherapists to strengthen their awareness of the education.
