Abstract: This study investigates caring attributes and perceptions of work place change among qualified and unqualified nursing staff working with older people in three countries. A Modified Caring Attributes Questionnaire and Perception of Workplace Change Schedule were administered to 737 staff. Caring attributes scores were highest for nurses working in long stay settings, and lowest in nurses aged 25-29 years. Nurses in Hong Kong appear better educated than UK counterparts. Staff development seemed more common in long stay settings. Results suggest workplace changes limiting care quality were more pronounced in Scotland. Reported job satisfaction and moral were lowest in the UK group.
