Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the awareness of Bowel Dysfunction Care among care staff who participated in Bowel Dysfunction Care training and the actual state of Bowel Dysfunction Care. We conducted a questionnaire survey and collected data on the primary information on Bowel Dysfunction Care, the image of Bowel Dysfunction Care, and the Quality Indicators of Bowel Dysfunction Care. The sample included 17 participants (2 males and 15 females), with 9 participants (52.9%) having 10–19 years of experience, while 11 (64.7%) of them were nurses by profession. It was found that 15 participants had some worries or problems with Bowel Dysfunction Care (88.2%), 12 participants used the defecation checklist (70.6%), and 5 participants used the Bristol scale (29.4%). Although the trainees recognized Bowel Dysfunction Care as important and considered it rewarding, the average implementation rate of the Bowel Dysfunction Care Quality Indicators was 53.6% (SD=19.7). It was suggested that there is a need for educational support opportunities for acquiring knowledge and skills to improve the quality of Bowel Dysfunction Care.
