PURPOSE
This study was conducted to identify effects of Medicaid Case Manager's communication competence and stress on their job satisfaction.
METHODS
The current work is descriptive research, and the participants were 154 medicaid case managers. Data were collected between May and July, 2017 through Embrain, a specialized research organization. The data were analyzed using independent t-test, ANOVA, and multiple regression.
RESULTS
The mean communication competence of the medicaid case managers was 3.61, stress 1.76, and their job satisfaction 2.74. Age and average monthly compensation brought significant differences in their job satisfaction. Their communication competence was correlated with stress (r=−.35, p<.001), but not with their job satisfaction. The stress was the most influential factor in job satisfaction (β=−.45).
CONCLUSION
The results of this work show that the medicaid case managers' communication competence was not an influence factor of their job satisfaction, which is different from implications from the previous studies and needs confirmation through future research. In addition the results of this study also suggest that stress management can be a useful approach to the improvement of medicaid case managers' job satisfaction.

PURPOSE
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of a positive psychology improvement program on elders' depression and death anxiety.
METHODS
This was conducted as a quasi-experimental study with non-equivalent control group pretest-posttest design. The participants were community elders aged over 65 recruited by convenient sampling. A total of 94 elders (32 in the individual experimental group, 32 in the collective experimental group, and 30 in the control group) participated. Data were collected between April and September, 2012 and analyzed by using SPSS/WIN 21.
RESULTS
The individual and group approach experimental groups had significantly lower scores of depression than the control group after the treatment (F=7.50, p=.001). For death anxiety, however, only the individual experimental group had a significantly lower score compared to the control group (F=4.56, p=.013).
CONCLUSION
These results indicate that the positive psychology improvement program was effective in decreasing depression and death anxiety in the elderly. Therefore, the program needs to be applied in a customized way fittingly to the characteristics of the elderly in community, and individually and/or collectively according to its purposes.

PURPOSE
The objective of this study is to analyze systematically the trends of experimental researches in the area of community health nursing.
METHODS
This is a study based on literature review, which analyzed 137 experimental research papers in the Journal of Korean Academy of Community Health Nursing, from the first issue in 1989 to those in 2012.
RESULTS
1) The proportion of experimental researches in the total published papers was 14.9%. 2) The mainly used research method was quasi-experiment, which was 60.6% of them, and there was no RCT. 3) Convenient sampling was used in 95.6% of the researches. 4) Only 5.1% were reviewed for keeping the ethical standards for the study objects by the IRB. 5 When classified by the Omaha Classification System, psycho-social researches were most frequent, which were followed by physiological, health-related behavioral, and environmental ones in order of frequency.
CONCLUSION
This study found that the proportion of experimental research papers was increasing in the 2000s and ethical standards were required more rigorously. However, it was suggested that the research design be more elaborated and sampling methods be manifested to reduce research bias and errors.

AbstractAbstract PDF
PURPOSE
This study examined the effects of case management (CM) for Medicaid on healthcare utilization considering the Medicaid system.
METHODS
Data were extracted from survey data on "Healthcare utilization and health status of Medicaid beneficiaries" conducted in 2007 and 2008 by the Ministry for Health, Welfare and Family Affairs. This study was designed to compare the effects on healthcare utilization between the CM group and the non-CM group. The subjects were 535 Type I Medicaid beneficiaries who utilized healthcare more than 365 days during 2006.
RESULTS
The outpatient days and medication days of the CM group decreased significantly more than those of the non-CM group with the copayment system. There were no significant differences of healthcare utilization between the CM group and the non-CM group with the designated doctor system.
CONCLUSION
CM worked effectively on Medicaid beneficiaries' outpatient healthcare utilization with the copayment system. However, its effects on hospitalization, which is a major cause increasing the total expense, were not observed. Therefore, future studies are needed to develop strategies to reduce hospitalization and Medicaid beneficiaries' outpatient healthcare utilization with the designated doctor system.

PURPOSE
This study examined change in healthcare utilization by disease severity after case management (CM) for Medicaid.
METHODS
Data were extracted from survey data on "Healthcare utilization and health status of Medicaid beneficiaries" conducted in 2007 and 2008 by the Ministry for Health, Welfare and Family Affairs. This study was designed to compare change in healthcare utilization between the CM group and the non-CM group. The subjects were 528 Type I Medicaid beneficiaries who utilized healthcare more than 365 days during 2006.
RESULTS
In beneficiaries having fewer than 3 among the 11 notified diseases, the CM group showed a significantly larger decrease in outpatient day, outpatient expense, medication day, and medication expense than the non-CM group. In beneficiaries having 3 or more among the 11 notified diseases, however, there was no significant difference in healthcare utilization between the CM group and the non-CM group.
CONCLUSION
CM worked effectively on Medicaid beneficiaries outpatient healthcare utilization for mild diseases. However, its effects on hospitalization, which is a major cause increasing the total expense, were not observed. Therefore, a future study is needed to develope strategies to reduce hospitalization and care for Medicaid beneficiaries with severe diseases.
