About

This study is to evaluate the effect of the elderly oral care knowledge, attitude ,self-efficacy ,oral care behavior between the home care workers(HCW) in VR(Virtual reality)/AR(Augmented reality)group and control group after intervention. Home care workers will be randomly assigned to the VR/AR group and the control group. Home care workers in the VR/AR group will use VR to learned about the oral care methods and processes in the different case. AR allows HCWs to actually operate cleaning teeth. The home care workers in the control group used traditional teaching methods for oral care. Baseline and follow-up survey were used to collect the data in oral care knowledge, attitude ,self-efficacy ,oral care behavior.

Full description

A randomized experimental design was used. Home care workers (HCWs) in the VR/AR group received 2.5 hours of VR(Virtual reality) and AR(Augmented reality) training. VR offered learners the standard oral care procedures under different physical and oral health conditions in elderly people and AR simulation training for the manual Bass brushing technique. The home care workers in the control group used traditional teaching methods for oral care. A self-administered questionnaire was used to collect data regarding oral care-related knowledge, attitude, self-efficacy, intention to assist in oral care behavior and behavior before and after the intervention, 3-month follow-up and 6-month follow-up. All participants finished the self-administered questionnaire within 10-15 minutes and handed it to researchers at VR/AR oral care training center in Kaohsiung Medical University.Generalized estimating equations (GEEs) was used to analyze the differences between pre-test, post-test and follow-ups.
