A Study on the Development of the Prioritization Items for Student-Intended Well-Dying Education Program using DACUM Technique


This study was performed to solve problems how the effect of death education can be secured. To accomplish this, the survey was administered from January 5, 2015 to January 30, 2015, intended for 8 professors who offered death-related courses for about 1 month at university. For research methods, DACUM technique was used to analyze functions on death education intended for students. Results derived from analysis showed that the core of function analysis on student-intended death education is a humanistic approach towards life and death and a field of mental health to overcome when a situation of death is predicted, and when a situation of death actually occurs. It reached the conclusion that death education is required for not only a realistic solution for a problem of death for the elderly and the public but also a solution for a problem of life for students. Results demonstrated that as death education in Korean society is expanded not only for the elderly but also the general public and students, a program customized by education object or age group will be required.
