|概要||Methods: We developed a short-term education program on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis communication support for undergraduate students in multiple healthcare disciplines. Effects of the program on Beginners and Experienced were evaluated using subjective burden indicated on visual analogue scale (VAS) before and after each AAC trial, free-text comments and etc.
Results: Number of letters generated in 5 minutes was higher for the Experienced group than for Beginners with the exception of one AAC device. Text-mining of participants' comments showed lower eyestrain reported in the Experienced group.
Conclusions: This study suggests that participants' knowledge of AAC for communication support of people with ALS was retained 6 months after completing the short training program, and hands-on AAC experience helped them develop their skills and reduce the perceived subjective burden.
