DePaola, Stephen J.; And Others
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v29 n3 p231-48 1994
Investigated the relationship between death fear, attitudes toward the elderly, and personal anxiety about aging in nursing home employees. Nursing professionals (registered nurses or licensed practical nurses) had lower levels of death concern than nursing assistants, and results also indicated that nursing assistants displayed significantly fewer positive attitudes toward the elderly than did nursing professionals.
