  We evaluated the knowledge, management and education needs related to asthma and allergic diseases among elementary school teachers in South Korea. Participants were 191 elementary school teachers assessed using a structured questionnaire. Participants were initially divided into two groups according to whether they had experience asthma and allergic disease. The demographic characteristics and main variables were compared between the groups using independent t-tests and X2-tests; IBM SPSS Statistics 22 was used for these analyses. Pearson’s correlation coefficient (r) was calculated to identify the relationship among the variables in each group. About 40% of teachers had experience in asthma or allergic disease the remainder had no experience. The demographics, except years of education did not significantly differ between these two groups. Participant’s scores for knowledge, disease management and educational needs did not differ between the groups. Notably, the knowledge score of the no-experience group was higher than that of the experience group whereas the opposite was true for disease management scores. Perceptions of the educational needs of both groups were similar. Disease management ability was significantly positively associated with knowledge and educational needs in the experience group. However, there were no relationships between knowledge, disease management and educational needs in the no-experience group.

  This study was designed to investigate the effects of the communication competence of and support from health care providers on the diabetes self-efficacy of Korean patients. A cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted. The 303 study participants were recruited from among all diabetes patients who were endocrinology outpatients of C university hospital. The data analysis included measurements of descriptive statistics, Pearson’s correlation coefficients and multivariate analysis using SPSS 22.0. The three models extracted during the hierarchical regression analysis were tested to determine the predictors of diabetes self-efficacy. The findings showed positive associations among health care provider communication, support from health care providers and diabetes self-efficacy. In the first model, personal factors such as age and religion were significant and accounted for 2.4% of the variance whereas age, religion, admission experiences and diabetes education were the key factors in the second model, accounting for 6.9% of the variance. Finally, when personal factors, health care provider communication and support from health care providers were entered into the final model having a spouse (β = -0.123, p = 0.040) strong religious beliefs (β = 0.142, p = 0.018) and support from health care providers were all significant. This final model which included both personal factors and main variables, accounted for 15.6% of the variance. Support from health care providers was an important factor in diabetes self-efficacy. Therefore, health care providers should make efforts to more fully understand the factors influencing patient’s self-efficacy in diabetes management and provide support thereof.
