Abstract

PURPOSE
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of infant-child CPR education on CPR knowledge, attitude, and self-efficacy of early childhood education students.
METHODS
The subjects were 18 early childhood education students. Infant-child CPR education with theory and practice was composed of a 1:9 instructor-to-student ratio during a period of 3 hours. CPR knowledge, attitude, and self-efficacy were measured, along with CPR performance on the effect of education. The data were acquired from October 19 to November 2 in 2013.
RESULTS
Significant improvement was observed for CPR knowledge (z=-3.63, p<.001), attitude (z=-3.42, p=.001), and self-efficacy (z=-3.25, p=.001). All of the subjects passed the performance test for infant-child CPR.
CONCLUSION
Implemented infant-child CPR education is helpful in improving CPR knowledge, attitude, and self-efficacy.
