본 연구에서는 노인 당뇨 환자를 대상으로 한 지역사회 기반 심리 중재가 환자들의 우울 증상과 혈당조절에 미치는 효과를 체계적으로 고찰하였다. 국내외 7개의 데이터베이스를 사용하여, 2008년 1월 1일부터 2018년 7월 31일까지 발표된 문헌들을 확인하였다. 선정기준에 따라 다섯 편의 연구가 최종 선정되었으며, 총 대상자는 제2형 당뇨 진단을 받은 지역사회 거주 노인 596명이었다. 메타분석에 선정된 네 편의 연구 모두 행동 교육을 목적으로 프로그램을 구성하였다. 추후에는 표본 크기를 늘려 심리적 중재 프로그램을 시행하는 것이 바람직하며 더욱 다양한 지역에서 수행하는 것이 필요함을 확인할 수 있었다.

Abstract PDF
Background:

Horizontal violence or lateral violence among nurses is a critical social issue given its global prevalence and frequency. In this study, we examined the effects of lateral violence on nurses’ burnout and empathy with patients by examining the moderating effect of communication in each relationship.

Methods:

This was a secondary analysis of data from a cross-sectional descriptive study, including a total of 211 registered nurses who had worked for more than six months at a medical institution in Seoul, South Korea. The data were collected between March 20, 2019 and June 1, 2019 using self-administered online surveys. Descriptive statistics and Pearson’s correlation coefficient were calculated, and hierarchical multiple regression analyses were performed. To test the moderating effect of communication, an interaction term was added to each model.

Results:

Communication negatively moderated the relationship between lateral violence and burnout. On the other hand, there was no significant moderating effect of communication on the relationship between lateral violence and empathy with patients.

Conclusions:

From these findings, we revealed the effect of communications between lateral violence and burnout. The higher the communication ability, the less the effect of lateral violence on burnout. Our findings highlight the importance of communication when developing interventions to reduce burnout in the presence of lateral violence.

Background:

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects a cognitive behavioral intervention on perceived stress, somatic symptoms, automatic negative thoughts and dysfunctional attitudes in college students.

Methods:

This was a quasi-experimental study with a nonequivalent control group design. Students who agreed to participate in the study and had a total score of 7 or greater on the Patient Health Questionnaire-15 were asked to choose one of the two groups to attend: Experimental and control groups. Students in the experimental group (N=17) received 5-weekly group sessions of the intervention, each of which lasted 60 minutes. The interventions were not provided to the control group (N=15). Students in both groups were asked to complete a set of questionnaires at baseline and five weeks. Descriptive statistics were calculated, and t-test, Mann-Whitney U test and repeated measures ANOVA were performed.

Results:

There was a significant interaction between time and group for perceived stress, somatic symptoms and automatic negative thoughts. Dysfunctional attitudes, on the other hand, were not significantly different by group.

Conclusions:

The findings showed that the intervention was effective for college students suffering from perceived stress and somatic symptoms. In particular, the significant decrease in automatic negative thoughts among students in the intervention group suggests that the effect of the cognitive-behavioral intervention was mediated by the cognitive factors of somatic symptoms.
