Research instruments included: (1) the Training Program towards Psychiatric Patient Care Skills among Health Care Providers developed from Patraporn Tungpunkom and associates (2005), (2) the Demographic Data Form, and (3) the Psychiatric Caregiving Skills Scale. The Cronbach’s alpha coefficient of the Psychiatric Caregiving Skills Scale was 0.87. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, mean, standard deviation and dependent t-test. The results demonstrated that the mean score of the psychiatric patient caregiving skills among health care providers after receiving the training program towards psychiatric patient care skills was significantly higher than that before receiving the program at a level of .05 (t=1.42, df=29 p<.5).
