Organizational climate and self-efficacy as predictors of staff strain in caring for dementia residents: A mediation model. Archives of Gerontology and Geriatrics,66 89-94. Ireland: Elsevier Ltd. Retrieved from https://doi.org/10.1016/j.archger.2016.05.006
To date, no research has investigated how the organizational climate of aged care influences the self-efficacy of staff in caring for residents with dementia, or, how self-efficacy is associated with the strain experienced by staff. This study sought to investigate the extent to which the self-efficacy of aged care staff mediates the association between organizational climate variables (such as autonomy, trusting and supportive workplace relations, and the recognition of competence and ability, and perceptions of workplace pressure) and staff strain.
