Title: The choice of the method of verificationof volunteer ability to work in a hospice

Abstract:

The subject of the work was the attempt of optimization of the methods used for verification of the candidates for medical voluntary workers in a hospice. The study was carried out in TPCh St. Lazarus Hospice in Krakow in the years 2008-2010. The study included 169 adult candidates participating in four consecutive editions of “A course for volunteers – a guardian of the sick” organized by the hospice. In the first phase of the study, the analysis of the motivation of the candidates for volunteers was carried out on the basis of an anonymous questionnaire. Then their knowledge was tested with the use of a written examination which consisted of four open questions and a multiple choice test comprising 31 questions. Practical abilities were checked by the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). This examination consists of three stations with various tasks to perform. A reference point for the results of these tests was a hidden standardized long-term observation carried out during the subsequent work of the volunteers in the stationary ward in the hospice using the Amsterdam Attitude and Communication Scale (AACS). Conclusions:Methods of verification of volunteers should be expended by a standardized instrument. Among the tests used, the greatest value in predicting how a given person would cope with practical tasks and in contact with the sick and their relatives had a practical test of the OSCE type. Even introducing of an exam resembling the single OSCE station could be a valuable instrument significantly increasing the value of the procedure of verification of volunteers for work in a hospice.
