ABSTRACT

Introduction: This study assessed the relationship between intention to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and intention to receive a seasonal influenza vaccine, as well as how intention to receive a COVID-19 vaccine has changed during the pandemic. Methods: Residents of British Columbia aged 25-69 years were invited to complete an online cross-sectional survey from August 2020 - March 2021. Mixed-effects logistic regression models assessed the relationship between intention to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and intention to receive the seasonal influenza vaccine. A generalized additive mixed model was used to investigate changes in COVID-19 vaccine intention during the pandemic (August 2020-March 2021). The relationship between intention to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and retrospective overall perceived value of vaccines prior to and during the pandemic was also considered. Results: Of 6,333 participants, 80.2 % of participants were 'somewhat or very likely' to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and 69 % of participants reported intending to receive a seasonal influenza vaccine. In multivariable modeling, intention to receive a COVID-19 vaccine was strongly associated with intention to receive a seasonal influenza vaccine (aOR = 4.25, 95 %CI 3.33-5.43). Intention to receive a COVID-19 vaccine increased over the study period (p < 0.0001), with the largest increase coinciding with the announcement of forthcoming approvals of COVID-19 vaccines in November 2020 (aOR = 1.45, 95 %CI 1.11-1.91). Conclusion: Intention to receive the COVID-19 vaccine was associated seasonal influenza vaccine intention, which is an important relationship to measure for implementation and future planning of COVID-19 booster doses. We found an increase in the intention to receive a COVID-19 vaccine after public announcements of forthcoming vaccine approval, which highlights the importance of ongoing monitoring and reporting of vaccine uptake, and the potential impact of emerging vaccine safety and efficacy information may have on vaccine acceptance.

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 lockdowns upended business operations, impacting microenterprises which prompted the Cebu Province to implement a stimulus grant to revive existing and encourage start-up microenterprises known as the Sugbo Negosyo program. A digital card system (DCS) with a quick response (QR) code payment was utilized to facilitate the disbursement of financial assistance and to enable real-time monitoring of the program beneficiaries' expenditure transactions. This study evaluates the effectiveness of the DCS, investigating how the perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, and attitude towards its use have influenced the actual use and satisfaction of the DCS use by the beneficiaries. The research, a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods, was participated by 212 beneficiaries through face-to-face surveys. With the Technology Acceptance Method (TAM) as the study's framework, the partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) results show that the DCS is evaluated as useful and easy to use and satisfied the beneficiaries. © 2022, University of San Jose-Recoletos.

ABSTRACT

Many research has been conducted to examine the acceptance factors to use mobile learning (m-learning) for regular students. During the COVID-19 most of the higher education institutions around the world were converted to m-learning especially for regular students, in order to continue supporting the educational stage for these students. This situation, allow researches to tested the use of m-learning for regular students while they are studying in distance learning environment. However, limited researches, especially in developing countries, have been tested the acceptance factors to use m-leaning for distance learning students. In this study the behavioral intention to use mobile learning (m-learning) were examined as well as the m-learning factors that affecting its acceptance amongst the distance learning students were outlined. The study framework was depended on the model of Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT). A quantitative approach was used to analyze the data that collected from a random sample of 154 male and female participants from Saudi universities. The results indicated that significant factors influencing distance learning students' behavioral intention include quality of service, effort expectancy, facilitating conditions, gender, educational level, and type of device. The regulations governing distance learning programs and the implementation of mobile learning by Saudi universities under the direction of the Ministry of Higher Education are having a good impact and encouraging widespread use of m-learning. © 2022 by the authors.

ABSTRACT

As an indispensable part of Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Chinese patent medicines have played an important role in preventing and treating diseases in China. Since they are easy to use, easy to store, and cost-effective, Chinese patent medicines have been generally accepted and widely used in Chinese clinical practice as a vital medical resource. In recent years, as TCM has developed and it has been accepted around the world, many Chinese patent medicine companies have gained international market access and successfully registered several Chinese patent medicines as over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription drugs in regions and countries that primarily use Western medicine such as the EU, Russia, Canada, Singapore, and Vietnam. Moreover, several Chinese patent medicines have been obtained the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval conducting phase II or III clinical trials in the US. The current work has focused on several Chinese patent medicines that have been successfully registered or that have been submitted for registration abroad. Summarized here are recent advances in the efficacy and molecular mechanisms of these Chinese patent medicines to treat respiratory infectious diseases (Lianhua Qingwen capsules, Jinhua Qinggan granules, and Shufeng Jiedu Capsules), cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases (Compound Danshen Dripping Pills, Huatuo Zaizao pills, and Tongxinluo Capsules), cancers (a Kanglaite injection and a Shenqi Fuzheng Injection), and gynecological diseases (Guizhi Fuling Capsules). The hope is that this review will contribute to a better understanding of Chinese patent medicines by people around the world.

ABSTRACT

seeing high-tech medical devices from other nations and witnessing surgery to learn has become nearly unattainable. The pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has created cross-border medical education challenging. Nevertheless, to cater to the increase in non-face-to-face education, instructional techniques entailing the 'metaverse' are being initiated in the medical field, since medical staff from all over the globe who frequented the UAE to acquire skills in medical technology and medical students who require to exercise have already had minimal prospects to collaborate closely with patients attributable to COVID-19. Employing video-conferencing technology like Zoom to provide effective medical education is similarly difficult. The research's goal is to learn the perception of students in the UAE towards the metaverse system (MV) used for medical training. The conceptual model includes The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) elements and adoption aspects of perceived value. The research's conceptual model, which connects both personal-based traits and technological features, is what makes it novel. Additionally, the novel hybrid analysis approach will be applied in the present research to conduct machine learning (ML) driven structural equation modeling (SEM) evaluation. © 2022 IEEE.

ABSTRACT

Purpose>The meddling of foreign players into the Indian hotel industry has triggered fervent competitiveness, and therefore, consumers' attitude, intention and behavior have been the epicenter of all activities. This study endeavors to explicate enablers of online hotel booking intention (OHBI) in the Indian hospitality industry.Design/methodology/approach>The study examined OHBI of 560 travelers during the first wave of COVID-19 pandemic in India using structural equation modeling and an extended technology acceptance model. Direct and indirect associations were explored using mediation and moderation.Findings>The results manifest that hotel website credibility, perceived website interactivity and perceived ease of use (PEU) aggrandize perceived usefulness (PU), which, in turn, considerably magnifies travelers' OHBI. PEU and PU partially mediate the relationship in the model. Into the bargain, service affordability reinforces the relationship, while perceived pandemic risk enfeebles the relationship between PU and OHBI.Research limitations/implications>The study unfurls pressing determinants of PEU, PU and OHBI that may facilitate hoteliers to lure travelers and enhance profitability.Originality/value>There is a paucity of literature on "hotel website credibility” and "perceived pandemic risk” in the hospitality industry. Hence, the study enriches literature by assimilating underlying constructs through an epigrammatic conceptual model. The study is distinctive because it unearths the possibilities of mediation and moderation amongst the aforementioned constructs and posits the calamitous effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the tourism and hospitality sector.

ABSTRACT

Purpose>The purpose of this study is to segment mobile wallet users using a finite mixture partial least squares (FIMIX-PLS) approach and evaluate the unobserved heterogeneity across segments.Design/methodology/approach>Partial least square structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) using a convenience sample of 744 responses was used to analyze the measurement, structural model and hypotheses testing. To examine unobserved heterogeneity and identify user segments, FIMIX-PLS technique was employed. To generate more precise recommendations, importance-performance map analysis (IPMA) was performed with attitude as the target variable.Findings>A structural equation model revealed that except perceived ease of use (PEOU) all other dimensions, namely perceived usefulness (PU), lifestyle compatibility (LC), facilitating conditions (FC), trust and security significantly influences attitude which, in turn, determines intention. The FIMIX-PLS technique resulted in four segments – The Rationalist, Early Adopters, Late Adopters and The Innovators.Practical implications>The paper provides segment specific and between segment differences to derive implications. Identification of relevant predictors and segments will help academicians, marketing researchers and practitioners in gaining further understanding of the mobile wallet adoption. The findings of the paper can guide mobile wallet providers to frame appropriate strategies and offerings pertaining to the obtained segments.Originality/value>The paper builds upon Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) to propose an integrated model to explain adoption behaviors associated with mobile wallet. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is one of the first empirical attempts using FIMIX-PLS technique to assess precursors of adoption and substantiates the perceived value-attitude-intention linkage to identify heterogeneity among mobile wallet users.

ABSTRACT

Many educators are concerned about students' use of WhatsApp for learning purposes, especially in emergency remote teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic. This study applied the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT) model to examine factors that predict distance students' acceptance of WhatsApp for learning. Correlational design was employed. Questionnaires were used to collect data from 273 undergraduate and post-graduate diploma distance students in Ghana. Data were analyzed using partial least squares-structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM). The results showed that performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, and facilitating conditions are significant predictors of distance students' intentions to use WhatsApp to support learning. However, mobile phone self-efficacy without mediation was not a significant predictor of behavioral intention. Finally, use behavior was significantly predicted by behavioral intention but not facilitating conditions. It was recommended, among other things, that before adopting WhatsApp for instructional activities, management and faculties of educational institutions should ensure the availability of suitable conditions such as WhatsApp-supported mobile devices for students' use.

ABSTRACT

[...]a team of researchers including Scott Hensley (Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA) has used the technology to develop a prototype vaccine that offers protection against all 20 known types of influenza (both subtypes A and B), and reported their results in Science. Pascolo also highlights that, compared to traditional egg-based flu vaccination technology, mRNA flu vaccines would be faster to produce, easily made multivalent, would not need adjuvants (aluminium is used in current flu vaccines), and would be vegan, resulting in limited impact on animals/environment, better acceptance, and a lower risk of allergic reaction for those allergic to eggs. [...]he adds that "developing these vaccines to protect against bacteria is more of a challenge than against viruses as bacteria translate and handle the folding and modifications of proteins in a different way than mammalian cells”.

ABSTRACT

Cutting-edge technologies are changing the operations of urban last-mile delivery. In particular, innovative technologies, such as delivery drones, have shown promising results in commercial applications. When considered alongside the ongoing pandemic, contactless technologies have become even more important to the daily lives of consumers in highly urbanized areas. This study investigates underlying factors influencing consumers' acceptance of drone delivery in urban cities amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. To this end, a model was created by fusing the technology acceptance model, task–technology fit, and privacy calculus theory. Four hundred and fifty survey responses were analyzed using structural equation modeling. The findings suggested that perceived usefulness, attitude, and perceived privacy risks directly influence consumers' behavioral intentions. In addition, perceived ease of use, task characteristics, technology characteristics, task–technology fit, and privacy concerns indirectly impact consumers' behavioral intention. This study offers an insightful perspective on consumers' perception of urban last-mile delivery drones while providing insights into urban transport planning and regulation of drone delivery services.

ABSTRACT

The successful implementation of mobile learning is mainly impacted by learners' attitudes to accepting and applying mobile learning systems. In the current study, an m-learning application was developed and implemented for university students, and their perspective toward the adoption and application of m-learning was investigated. This cross-sectional study was carried out in 2020. The participants were 114 university students at Abadan University of Medical Sciences. Data were collected by means of a valid questionnaire containing 42 questions in 13 subscales in addition to an open-ended question about the positive and negative aspects of the m-learning application. There was a significant relationship between acceptance and major (P=0.001), mobile usage (P=0.035), and familiarity with m-learning (P<0.001). The total mean of m-learning application acceptance was 3.95±0.32, which shows a good level. Self-efficacy, perceived ease of use, and user interface were, respectively, the most influencing factors;mobile device limitation and governmental support were the least influencing factors. "Direct communication with the teacher/instructor” and "Internet disconnection during video teaching” were among the positive and negative aspects of applying the m-learning application, respectively. The m-learning application was well adopted among the students. Mobile device limitations are a reason for the student's concerns. "Usability features” can be a point for covering mobile device limitations.

ABSTRACT

Although research has been conducted on the benefits of technology-enhanced learning in education, some higher education institutions have adapted and embraced these technological benefits, but others have not. The COVID-19 pandemic brought a heightened awareness of technology-enhanced learning and the need for faculty to support the adoption of technology tools in their instructional practices. The purpose of this qualitative, descriptive study was to explore faculty perceptions of the impact of a rapid need-based pivot to remote learning during the COVID-19 global pandemic. The study is grounded in the Technology Acceptance Model 3, which connects multiple perceptions of a technology user with indications of acceptance and use of technology. This model also considers the use of technology under voluntary and involuntary circumstances. Interviews with 13 faculty members from various campuses were conducted as the primary data collection method to answer the research question: What are faculty perceptions of the use of technology-enhanced learning resulting from their experiences during COVID-19? The findings of this study add to the body of knowledge on faculty transitions to technology acceptance, provide current perceptions of faculty regarding academic technology integration since the pandemic, and establish the basis for creating a faculty development series in technology-enhanced learning.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: In order to enhance public acceptability and reduce vaccine hesitancy in the face of the disease, it is necessary to examine the general public's awareness of the coronavirus vaccination. Vaccination resistance to the coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) vaccination continues to be a problem throughout the world. Some of the greatest hurdles to dedication to hygienic standards are a lack of scientific testing for the vaccination, the fear of vaccine side effects, and reports of active viruses in immunizations. National and international health groups are launching initiatives to promote public knowledge about the COVID-19 vaccinations. This study aimed to understand the knowledge, attitude, and hesitancy toward the COVID-19 vaccine among the people of the Hazaribag district from Jharkhand. Methodology: The present study was conducted in Sheikh Bhikhari Medical College and Hospital, a tertiary care hospital of Jharkhand. It was a cross-sectional study. The research was conducted from June 2021 to December 2021. Result: The majority of respondents (83.3%) were confident in taking the COVID-19 vaccine, and 76% respondents agreed that the COVID-19 vaccinations now in use were safe; nevertheless, concern was expressed by 8% of respondents, whereas neutrality was expressed by 15.1%. Conclusion: Overall, the participants in the study had a good understanding of the coronavirus vaccine and agreed to take it. The development of mild or major side effects following immunization is the most important determinant for vaccine reluctance. Vaccine acceptability may improve whenever more information about vaccine safety and efficacy becomes available in the public domain, preferably from a centralized, trustworthy source. To promote public vaccination acceptance and reduce vaccine hesitancy, ongoing training and health education programs are required.

ABSTRACT

Objective : In the COVID-19 era, the importance of and need for digital health services, such as telemedicine and wearable healthcare devices, are increasing. Although these services are treasured by older adults, their acceptance rates remain low. Thus, we attempted to find ways to enhance the acceptance rates of these services by investigating factors that influence the digital health acceptance of baby boomers. Based on the behavioral model of health service use and a multi-dimensional value perspective, we developed a research model to compare the factors influencing telemedicine and wearable healthcare device acceptance. Methods : To examine the research model, we conducted face-to-face surveys with 300 baby boomers. The survey consisted of two sections: telemedicine and wearable healthcare devices. We used measurement instruments that had been validated in previous studies. Results : Each research model's measurement model and structural model were evaluated. The reliability and validity of the measurement items of each model were satisfactory. The structural model test illustrates that three beliefs (usefulness, information, and cost saving) are important for the acceptance of telemedicine and wearable healthcare devices. Reassurance and convenience only significantly influence telemedicine and wearable healthcare devices, respectively. Among need and enabling factors, subjective health and income affect the intention to accept telemedicine and wearable healthcare devices. Conclusions: This study has theoretical implications in that it applied multidisciplinary theories by reflecting on the convergence characteristics of digital health, which are health and digital. In addition, it provides managerial implications to promote baby boomers' acceptance of digital health services.

ABSTRACT

Vaccination is the most effective intervention for the primary prevention of COVID-19. Several studies have been conducted in sub-Saharan African countries on the acceptance and associated factors of the COVID-19 vaccine. This review and meta-analysis aimed to recapitulate the pooled magnitude of vaccine acceptance and its favoring factors in sub-Saharan African countries. PUBMED, MEDLINE, Science Direct, Web of Science, and SCOPUS were the main databases searched from 15 March to 5 June 2022;and all the articles written in the English language were included. Also, some articles were retrieved from biomedical peer-reviewed journal sites and Google scholar. The quality of thirty-five selected articles was evaluated using an adapted scale for evaluating cross-sectional studies based on the Newcastle-Ottawa Scale. The result of the review and meta-analysis revealed that the COVID-19 vaccine acceptance rate varied across studies. In a pooled analysis, factors such as;higher-level perception of infection risk (OR (95% CI (2.7 (2.1, 3.4))), perceived vaccine safety (13.9 (9.2, 20.9)), virus-related good knowledge (2.7 (2.3, 3.2)) and appropriate attitude (5.9 (4.4, 7.8)), adherence to safety precautions (5.5 (4.8, 6.2)), and infection experience (4.4 (2.8, 6.9)) were positively affected the COVID-19 vaccine acceptance. Also, vaccine acceptance was found to be high among males and chronically ill individuals. Thus, understanding factors that enhance vaccine acceptance would support planners to augment vaccine uptake in the region.

ABSTRACT

Introduction The newly developed and marketed vaccines along with concerns about vaccine safety and long-term side effects has been raised an alarming in the general population. The aim of this study was to assess the rate of acceptance, perceptions and concerns towards receiving COVID-19 vaccines and to explore the incidence of vaccines' side effects among Iraqi population in Baghdad province, Iraq. Method This was a descriptive, cross-sectional study conducted via direct interviews among a convenient sample size of Iraqi population using a structured validated questionnaire consisting of using 24-item questionnaire to assess acceptance, concerns and the incidence of vaccines' side effects towards receiving COVID-19 vaccines. Results A total of 500 participants with an average age of 27.8 ± 3.7 years were included. Majority were females (70.6%). 43.4% had a history of COVID-19, and 46% received the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine. 73.4% (P < 0.0001) agreed about the importance of receiving the vaccination to protect the community against the COVID-19.46.8% (P < 0.0001) were unsure about the adverse effects and long-term vaccine safety. 72.8% reported that transmission of COVID-19 infection to family members is the main concern for accepting vaccination. Fatigue (60%), injection site reactions (55.8%) were the most common vaccine's side effects. Young age (P = 0.001), females (P < 0.0001), and university educational (P < 0.0001) were the most significant determents for accepting vaccination. Conclusion This study highlights that the Iraqi population showed a considerable acceptance rate for the COVID-19 vaccines. However, vaccine safety is considered a high priority concern associated with the willingness of the population to vaccinate.

ABSTRACT

Experts and industry reports agree that the COVID-19 crisis spurred the adoption of new retail technologies, like mobile payment. However, empirical academic evidence that compares their adoption and usage before, during, and after the crisis remains scarce. So far, academic mobile payment research has focussed almost entirely on the different building blocks of technological acceptance models, like perceived usefulness and ease of use, and their role in explaining intention to use. We need to learn more about the profile of the actual user. In this Belgian study, we investigate the evolution in mobile adoption based on survey data from 2019 to 2020 (2019: N = 897;2020: N = 895). We examine differences in the profile of mobile payers in terms of their socio-demographics, retail, and social media behaviours. The pandemic triggered a clear uplift in mobile payment users between 2019 to 2020. Nonetheless, striking differences in socio-demographic profile and retail patronage remain. Our data shows that there is still inequality in adoption, related to age and social grade. We also observe a clear association between general impulse buying tendency and mobile payment. The link between internet/online shopping and mobile payment is firmly established. Finally, mobile adoption is related to the use of Instagram and Facebook. Consequences for retailers, researchers and public officers are further discussed.

ABSTRACT

This study investigated how the acceptance and use of self-regulatory strategies in online learning affected Hong Kong secondary school students' participation in online learning. A self-reported questionnaire was distributed to 1381 students from six secondary schools. Findings of the descriptive analysis indicated that students did not frequently use most types of online self-regulatory strategies. Although they agreed that the online learning methods were easy to use and facilitated learning, they did not actively participate in online learning activities and showed a low tendency to continuation. Further, structural equation modeling indicated that the effect of strategy use on actual participation was stronger than that of user acceptance. The former had a significant indirect effect on actual participation through the strong effect it had on user acceptance. Consequently, suggestions have been made for improving the instructional design of online learning and increasing students' willingness and readiness to participate in online learning.

ABSTRACT

Higher education institutions had to adapt to a new normal quickly brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. This research set out to explore the factors impacting the adoption of online learning by students and the implications of these factors on future learning. An online survey was conducted and analysed using quantitative and qualitative methods, guided by an extended technology acceptance model. The research was necessary as online learning is anticipated to continue to be used for education by higher education institutions. The findings showed the benefits of learning flexibility of online learning. However, social isolation resulted in low motivation and perception of lowering the quality of education. The research concludes that students need reassurance that they are getting an adequate education through structured learning materials and processes with timely lecturer support. Students need access to peers and must be encouraged to engage. Furthermore, students need to find their optimal learning spaces because, as life-long learners, they need to teach themselves effectively. © 2022, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

ABSTRACT

Usage of online teaching and learning platforms to support mobile or remote learning in higher education institutions have been widely utilised throughout the COVID-19 pandemic as movements were restricted, disallowing physical classes. Many agree with the functions and benefits of these online platforms. Thus, this study aims to analyse the determinants that would influence the acceptance and use of technology based on the UTAUT model for permanent adoption of the system. The results showed that performance expectancy, effort expectancy and facilitating condition have significant influences over behaviour intention to use the online systems, intention having influences on usage behaviour as well as hedonic motivations having mediating effects on the relationship between performance expectancy and facilitating condition with behaviour intention. Findings and implications of this study are discussed to assists the education industry. © 2023, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
