Abstract


Purpose: This study aimed to provide basic data for the development of an education program on diabetic foot prevention care for care helpers in long term care facilities. Additionally, it sought to determine care helpers' knowledge and practice regarding diabetic foot prevention care, and to identify the correlation between such knowledge and practice.

Methods: This cross-sectional study employed a structured questionnaire. Participants consisted of 90 care helpers who were working in three long term care facilities in Jeju city. Data collection was conducted from September to November 2016.

Results: The mean knowledge and practice scores were 8.77±1.28 (range 0~10) and 28.17±2.44 (range 10~30), respec?tively. Practice regarding diabetic foot prevention care was significantly different by care helpers’ gender (t=-2.28, p=.024), period of career in the long term care facility (F=3.29, p=.025), and received education on diabetic foot prevention care (t=3.08, p=.005). A positive correlation was observed between knowledge and practice (r=.35, p<.001).

Conclusion: To improve the practice of diabetic foot prevention care, specialized education programs that consider gender and period of career in the long term care facility as well as the improvement of the level of knowledge of care helpers on diabetic foot prevention care are needed.
