Evaluation of students' learning through simulation experience study in gerontological nursing education--understanding the elderly person and the role of the caregiver


, : Evaluation of students' learning through simulation experience study in gerontological nursing education--understanding the elderly person and the role of the caregiver. Journal of Uoeh 26(3): 391-403

The purpose of this study was to clarify the learning of the students who participated in an elderly person simulation experience study. We analyzed the aspects of the students' understanding of an elderly person and the role of a caregiver using the records maintained by the students during their simulation experience study. Based on the results, the students' understanding of an elderly person was classified under six categories, that is, 1) the physical phenomena of aging, 2) the effect of physical phenomena on the activities of daily living (ADL), 3) influence of the vital functions on an elderly person's physical function and health, 4) the effect on the mental state, 5) the constraint on the other persons, and 6) the change in the social status and relationships. The role of a caregiver was classified under two categories; that is, 1) the activities and role of the caregiver, and 2) the adjustment to the environment. In this study, the students perceived not only the physical difficulties but also the emotional and sensitivity levels of the aged. In conclusion, it is thought that the elderly simulation program is effective in developing a better understanding of the physical state of the elderly as well as the importance of providing them with support.
