    Abstract PDF
    This study aimed to provide basic data for the development of a specialized death preparation education program and to analyze the educational perception of experts working in the field of death education. The subjects of the survey were people who had acquired the private certificate of a well-dying instructor, and the survey was conducted by mail. The results of the analysis of the questions about the contents of death education and the appropriate subjects of death education showed that “psychological stability” in death education was selected by 83.0% of subjects, and 61.7% answered that the general public are the most suitable subjects for death education. Regarding the factors influencing the education of well-dying instructors, multiple regression analysis showed that the regression model had an explanatory power of 61.5%. The influencing factors that were statistically significant were the duration of activity, the appropriate number of weekly education sessions, and the appropriate weekly education period. To sum up the results, this study aimed to help solve the problems of current education and improve well-dying education’s appropriateness and professionalism. Because the subjects were experts in the field, the results are usable and feasible. However, the questions related to “the requirement of well-dying instructors” and “the priorities of well-dying education” need to be investigated in more detail.

    Abstract PDF
    This study aimed to identify watching behaviors matched with instructional events in a general video-based learning environment and investigate the relationships among the watching behaviors, learning flow, and the learning achievement. The watching behaviors were fixation, saccade, and pupil dilation, among others, and those of 61 participants were recorded throughout their course of learning. The level of their learning achievement and learning flow were also collected. The experiment stimulus was an about 10 minutes of a video clip, and it was about the normal distribution in the statistics course. Under the purpose of research, the most frequent watching behaviors relying upon the instructor’s behavior were identified, and the correlation and regression analyses were performed repeatedly using the watching behaviors, learning flow, and the learning achievement as the variables. In this study, the regression models for predicting the learning achievement, along with the watching behaviors and learning flow, were not clearly developed; however, the process of this research suggested certain meaningful implications for interpreting the learners’ state in the progress of learning and suggesting directions for the future statistical analyses. Further discussion is included.

    Abstract PDF
    This study has the aim to investigate the college students’ eye strain caused by their eye movements. In this study, we used a developed questionnaire comprised of 88 questions including eye strain. The data was collected from February 4, 2012 until February 22, 2012. The participants were 273 undergraduates who were resident in Jeolla and Gyeonggi provinces of Korea. The collected data was analyzed by SPSS 19.0. The results of this study as follows. 67% of participants used optical aids such as eye glasses and contact lenses. For them, the initial age of using the optical aids was 14.27. They experienced sensitivity (61.2%), dryness (58.6%), itching (44.6%) of their eyes. They purchased contact lenses at the optician's shop (94.4%), and they used contact lenses with the object of both correction and beautification (43.4%). The initial age of wearing contact lenses was 18.38. The mean score of eye strain was 16.36. There were significant differences in gender (t=-3.171, p=.002), eyesight testing time (F=6.380, p=.002), use of the optical aids (t=-4.096, p<.001), use of the contact lenses (t=-5.988, p<.001), eye disease (t=5.903, p<.001), sitting posture (F=-6.477, p<.001), side effects of wearing contact lenses (t=3.502, p=.001), daily use of contact lenses (t=-2.921, p=004), and weekly use of contact lenses (t=-2.273, p=.024) causing the eye strain. This study confirmed that the participants wearing contact lenses feel more eye strain than otherwise. Therefore, it is necessary to develop nursing interventions and educational program to help manage contact lenses and eye health.

    Effects of the Speech Therapy Program Based Augmented Reality on Improving Naming and Functional Communication Ability of the Patients with Expressive Aphasia

    An, Sinwook , Geun-Hyo Kim , Hee-June Park and 1 other persons | 2017, 1(1) | pp.57~67 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    The central goal of language therapy for aphasia should be to improve the patient’s everyday language competence. However, the functional communication approach is difficult to apply in the clinical field, so most treatments are symptom-oriented. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the speech therapy program based augmented reality is effective in improving the naming and functional communication ability of the patients with expressive aphasia. Five patients with expressive aphasia participated in the experiment where the naming and functional communication scores were compared before and after treatment. For treatment, the augmented reality contents similar to those of the home environment (room, living room, bathroom, and kitchen) were produced and presented to the patient in the form of a script. Then, when the subjects recognized such marks with a camera, three-dimensional models corresponding to the marks were indicated in the relevant card presenting the image to the subjects on the monitor. The study result showed that All of the subjects' response scores were improved. According to the results of the study, the post-treatment Naming Ability scores (38.4) were higher than the pre-treatment (26), whereas the post-treatment Functional Communication Ability scores (48.4) were higher than the pre-treatment (33). The speech therapy program based augmented reality can complement the symptom-oriented treatment and make the functional communication approach possible.

    Effects of Exercise Programs on Cancer Patients: a Systematic Literature Review a Systematic Literature Review

    Yi, Eun-Sruk , Chun Sang-Wan , Kim, Ji-youn | 2017, 1(1) | pp.69~77 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study examined exercise programs for the cancer patients, patient exercise time, and the data on exercise programs according to the type of cancer by systematically reviewing the results of the experimental studies on the application and effectiveness of the exercise programs for the cancer patients registered with the Korean Citation Index (KCI) and published between January 2010 and December 2016. The study result showed that exercise programs for the Korean cancer patients were found to have a positive effect. The most common cancer type and program time were ‘breast cancer patients’ and ‘after surgery’. Exercise programs were confirmed to be used in the recovery period. It was also confirmed that studies on the exercise programs for the cancer patients are very limited even though exercising has a positive effect on physical function and psychology during cancer treatment. Since the effectiveness of the exercises has been proven, it is necessary to develop various exercise programs based on the type of cancer and treatment period and study the application of exercises in the field.
