ABSTRACT

In this study, it was sought to confirm the importance and level of knowledge necessary for the operation of infectious disease prevention education targeting well-aging education experts, and also analyze vari- ous factors for educational activities. The subjects of the study were 85 well-aging education experts who agreed to the study. The survey was conducted from November 2022 through January 2023 through Gallup Korea. The statistical analysis was performed using the SPSS Statistics 25 program. As a result of the study, as for the importance of each item of knowledge on the infectious disease prevention, ‘how to prevent infectious diseases’ turned out to be the highest at 4.1 points (78.2 points). As for the level of knowledge about the prevention of infectious diseases, the transmission route of infectious diseases and the methods of preventing infectious diseases turned out to be the highest at 3.8 points (69.4 points). As for the educational method of infectious disease prevention education, the mixed form of ‘lecture and experience’ was responded to be the most appropriate, and the most important compo- nent of teaching and learning activities was ‘educational content’. The period when infectious disease prevention education is considered neces- sary turned out to be high in the order of adulthood and adolescence. The results of this study are expected to be used as the basic data for the development of infectious disease prevention education programs for the well-aging education experts.
