The multivariate relationship between the BCOS scores as the dependent variables and the independent variables consisting of the stroke survivor's age, gender, and functional disability and the caregiver's age, gender, and duration of caregiving were examined in linear regression models.
Although the BCOS score may range from -45 (change for the worst) to +45 (change for the best) and a BCOS total caregiving score of 0 indicates no change, in this study, BCOS scores ranged from -44 to +33 (mean = -5.
Such variables as the stroke survivor's age, gender, and functional disability and the caregiver's age, gender, and duration of caregiving were entered as independent variables in a stepwise linear regression analysis to examine their possible relationship, with the BCOS scores as the dependent variable.
In a standard multiple regression, only the stroke survivor's functional disability variable significantly predicted the perceived care-related life changes and explained 57% of the total variance, a large proportion of the variance in the BCOS scores.
The possible adoption of BCOS OPS as a role of the ADF may compete with the traditional war-fighting role and could result in fundamental force structure and resource changes.
BCOS involve challenges such as economic dysfunction, environmental problems, epidemics, famines, ethnic conflict, religious conflict, sub-state nationalist conflict, terrorism, and crime.
The range and frequency of BCOS OPS will likely increase.
This BCOS OPS category will not decrease in importance.
This BCOS OPS category is likely to increase in importance.
This BCOS OPS role is likely to increase as part of ADF planning for overseas operations.
Insisting that the government's desire to ensure the turnaround of BCOS
was the only reason for the competency testing and the eventual redeployment of those who were found wanting by an unbiased outfit like KPMG, Adegbite queried why some people passed the test while others did not, adding that what the corporation had as staff members could not take it to the next level, which was why the move to right-size was done.
