  • Purpose: This study was conducted to investigate the cognition level and the performance level of universal precautions on blood-borne infections and to analyze related-factors on the performance level for universal precautions among the nurses. Method: A total of 166 nurses participated in the survey. We performed multiple linear regression to assess the related-factors on the performance level for universal precautions. Result: The mean scores of cognition and performance level for universal precautions were 65.61(${\pm}8.74$) and 53.98(${\pm}8.42$) respectively. The mean score of the cognition level was significantly lower than the performance level in all items. The cognition level was associated with the working field. The performance level was highest for nurses working over 36 years, nurses in university hospitals, and nurses in the operating room. The cognitive level for universal precautions, education level, exposure to blood-borne infection, family's income, and marital status significantly predicted the performance level for universal precautions in the multiple linear regression model (Adjusted $R^2=0.42$). Conclusion: The cognition level for universal precautions is the strongest predictor on the performance level for universal precautions. An integrated approach should incorporate training experiences to improve cognition and perception of risk on universal precautions for preventing blood-borne infections.

  • In times of current warfare, importance of civil military operations(CMO) is more on the rise because the military winning does not couple the political winning immediately. For this reason, CMO Model Development Program has been commenced by ROK JCS since FY 2014. As CMO is non-kinetic operations which is focused on civilians, it depends on the commander's decision that reflects the results of the evaluation of the CMO performance level. The evaluation of CMO performance level is a very important factor of this model. So, I decided my subject a study of simulation method for evaluation of CMO Performance level. It is affected in CMO performance level by the occurrence of some event, and the achievement results of CMO for the response action on such event is evaluated by the 5 factors(administration level, security level, infrastructure level, humanitarian support level, friendship level) on the evaluation of CMO performance level. Even more it is affected in achievement of new CMO and new event by evaluation results. In this study, I provided a methodology of how apply the evaluation results and how simulate the achievement results of CMO performance with the 5 factors on the evaluation of CMO Performance level. Also this study is expected that it will be highly contributed to training and exercise in CMO branch in ROK JCS, when CMO Model Development Program is done as a new model applied such evaluation factors matching military environment in the Korean Peninsular, and applied this simulation method for evaluation of CMO Performance level.
