Background:

This study was conducted to examine the impact of hospice service experiences on the volunteers’ attitudes toward life and death.

Methods:

Study 1 examined differences in life and death attitudes between hospice volunteers, hospice service trainees, and lay people using one-way ANOVA. Study 2 conducted in-depth interview with 10 hospice-patient care volunteers who had at least 3 years of experience.

Results:

After analyzing differences between three groups of lay people, hospice trainees and hospice volunteers, both hospice trainees and hospice volunteers compared to lay people showed lower pursuit of power and achievement, which can be interpreted as a characteristic of people motivated to volunteer, rather than volunteering itself. However, only hospice volunteers reported highly of religion and community as factors of meaningful life. Also, the volunteer group showed significantly lower death anxiety compare to the group without volunteer experience. Result of qualitative study showed that people realized the importance of family and altruistic lifestyle and prepared their own demise in their lives after volunteering.

Conclusions:

These findings suggest that experiences of hospice service may be associated with self-transcendent life and positive death attitudes.

Backgound:

The purpose of research is to identify the factors that influence Social Network Service (SNS) fatigue and usage satisfaction within hyperconnective society.

Methods:

In study 1, a survey was carried out to 365 participants over the age of 20 to access their level of SNS fatigue. In study 2, 69 participants over the age of 20 are asked to complete an online diary for 7 days. Measuring criteria consisted of personality, loneliness, self-concept, social comparison, conversation topics, satisfaction from SNS conversation, positive and negative emotions.

Results:

In study 1, women compared to men and participants in their 30s rather than in their 20s indicated significantly higher level of SNS fatigue. Also, personality characteristics such as high neuroticism, low agreeableness, deprivation in self-concept, and frequent comparison with others indicated higher level SNS fatigue. In study 2, Communication topics such as casual inquiries, idle talk, information sharing increased the degree satisfaction; however, counseling and work related issue did not show any significant correlations. Also, a group recorded highest positive emotion on the online diary reported to have higher number of intimate off-line interpersonal relationships and significantly higher satisfaction with them.

Conclusions:

This suggests that the degree of SNS fatigue and other psychological status are influenced not by its degree of usage but by individual’s personal characteristics, communication topics, and off-line interpersonal interaction.
