This study was conducted to evaluate the need for education for emergency care in nursing homes. Method: 312 people who were engaged in caring for the elderly at nursing homes in D-metropolitan c! ity answered the questionnaires about the experiences, the need, and the ideal methods of education for basic emergency care, from Jul. 1. 2007 to Jul. 30. 2007. Result: 69.9% were female. Only 7.1% were nurses and the rest did not have majors in the medical field. 83.0% had experienced education for emergency care, and 89.2%, 78.4% and 44.8% of them had been educated about cardiopulmonary resuscitation, airway obstruction care, and fracture/sprain/dislocation care respectively. Fifty-three who had not experienced education answered 'no opportunity' as a cause of non-education. The need for emergency care education was 4.53/5.00, and the desire to receive education was 2.81/3.00. Mainly workers wanted to be educated abo! ut airway obstruction (88.1%), and breathing assistance & cardiac massage (72.4%). Workers preferred to be educated 1-2 times per year for 2-3 subjects, through programs including both lecture and practice. Conclusion: It is essential to create an adequate program and apply it to the people engaged in caring for the elderly.
