ABSTRACT

Numbers of mechanically ventilated patients are increasing worldwide. Weaning Boards could support weaning from the ventilator by facilitating interprofessional consultations between Weaning Centers and nonpneumological intensive care units. This study, which is linked to the project Prevention of invasive Ventilation, aimed to explore the design and implementation of future Weaning Boards. Semistructured interviews were conducted with physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, and physiotherapists of intensive care units and Weaning Centers in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. Participants were asked to share their views on (a) required characteristics of Weaning Boards and (b) the current care of weaning patients in their wards. Qualitative data analysis included inductive and deductive steps referring to the Template for Intervention Description and Replication checklist and the Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research. The 14 interviewed healthcare professionals addressed characteristics of future Weaning Boards including (a) preconditions, (b) procedure, (c) interprofessional participants, (d) type of performance, and (d) time frame. Identified determinants for successful implementation were related to (a) individual characteristics of healthcare professionals, (b) ward characteristics, and (c) healthcare system characteristics. Weaning Boards could be a useful tool to advance knowledge sharing between professionals, improve education about weaning protocols, and support patient-oriented care. The implementation of Weaning Boards can be influenced by individual characteristics of participating professionals, difficulties in the interaction between professional groups, the present workplace culture, and the current coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

ABSTRACT

The Covid-19 pandemic has indeed driven educational technology to the next higher level, especially in faculty teaching and research. There is an increasing need for faculty to embrace new technology, especially with the emergence of new normal in both teaching, learning, and research. To become conversant with the technologies, educators need opportunities for professional development. And to continue to be involved with new and evolving technologies in education, faculty members seek leadership and support. This study was carried out to investigate the leadership role in the professional development of technology in the educational delivery system of Nigerian universities. The study adopted a qualitative approach. This qualitative study randomly selected a convenience sample of 100 faculty and administrators in the faculty of education of 12 universities in Nigeria. Using focus-group discussion sessions, interviews, the researchers met with 100 participants in groups of 3 to 15 each session. Data were transcribed and entered into a database for analysis. The leadership role of faculty members, technology specialists, policy, support, and infrastructure were discussed. The study shows that to help faculty members lead the way in investigating, integrating, and evaluating technologies, faculty members need policies and leadership support, equitable access to technology, support, professional development, and recognition.

ABSTRACT

Public health nurses in Ontario, Canada, support the healthy growth and development of children across the province through a variety of programs including home visits for pregnant individuals and families with young children. During the COVID-19 global pandemic the needs of families increased while access to health and social services decreased. During this time, home visiting teams closely involved in supporting families also experienced staff redeployment to support pandemic efforts (e.g., case and contact management, vaccinations) and changes to the nature of home visiting work, including shifts to remote or virtual service delivery. To support nursing practice in this new and evolving context, a framework for capturing and sharing the tacit or how-to knowledge of public health nurses was developed. A valuing of this type of knowledge for informing future public health nursing practice - well beyond the pandemic response - was recognized as a pandemic silver lining when reflecting on two years of supporting home visiting teams in our province.

ABSTRACT

Lifelong learning is an expectation of all nurses and nursing associates. However, after preceptorship there is limited guidance on how junior nurses can progress in their careers. Formal training programmes were limited by pressures associated with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, as well as long-term financial and resource restrictions across the NHS. Nurses' expectations of professional development and well-being have also been affected by their experiences during the pandemic. This article explores how nurses in management positions can create professional development opportunities for nurses, particularly in leadership. The author identifies how leaders can support their staff to broaden their skills and knowledge despite pressures on staffing and resources.

ABSTRACT

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Shanghai, China, all school classes were delivered through an online environment from February 24 to May 22, 2020. To support this transition, the Shanghai Education Commission led expert teachers and specialists to develop a series of online video lessons based on the Shanghai unified curriculum, and suggested students watch the online video lessons individually from home, followed by an online synchronous lesson supported by class teachers. This study investigated what primary mathematics teachers learned from addressing these challenges through a case study. By following two purposefully selected teachers over 2 weeks during the transition, multiple data sets including online video lessons, online synchronous lessons, daily reflections, and post-online teacher interviews were collected. A fine-grained analysis of the data from the lens of the documentational approach to didactics found that teachers adaptively used online video lessons as important resources for their online synchronous lessons and virtual Teaching Research Groups as a teachers' collaboration mechanism supported them to develop online video lessons and address various technological constraints. Finally, implications of this case study for mathematics education globally are discussed. Supplementary Information: The online version contains supplementary material available at 10.1007/s10649-022-10172-2.

ABSTRACT

Background: Although social media use among physicians skyrocketed during the COVID-19 pandemic, its role for networking, mentorship, and support among ophthalmologists remains unknown. The objective of this study was to elucidate how ophthalmologists use social media for navigating challenges related to personal and professional development. Methods: This was a cross-sectional survey study conducted during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. A 40-item questionnaire investigating the usage of social media was developed and distributed to active social media users in ophthalmology including trainees and practitioners from November 2020 to December 2020 via social media channels. Quantitative responses were analyzed using descriptive and basic statistics, while a thematic analysis was conducted to examine the qualitative responses. Results: One hundred and forty-nine respondents (67% women) completed the survey, with 56% of participants between the ages of 25-35 years old. Women were more likely to report experiencing workplace discrimination (p < 0.005) and work-life imbalance (p < 0.05) compared to men, and social media was found to be useful in addressing those challenges in addition to parenting and mentorship (p < 0.005 and p < 0.001, respectively). Compared to their older counterparts, younger ophthalmologists (<45 years old) cited more challenges with practice management (p < 0.005) and turned to social media for corresponding guidance (p < 0.05). Compared to late career ophthalmologists, trainees were more likely to report difficulties with career development (p < 0.05), practice management (p < 0.0001), and financial planning (p < 0.05), and found social media beneficial for learning financial literacy (p < 0.05). A qualitative analysis of the free-response texts found both positive and negative viewpoints of social media use in ophthalmology. Conclusion: Social media is an invaluable tool for enhancing professional and personal growth for ophthalmologists, particularly for women, trainees, and younger surgeons through education and community-building. Future directions include exploring how social media can be used to improve mentorship, outreach, and training in ophthalmology.

ABSTRACT

Drawing on qualitative research, this study explores the Iranian EFL teachers' technological needs and their suggestions for using computer-assisted language learning (CALL) during the COVID-19 pandemic. We analyzed the narratives produced by 66 English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teachers for their themes through deductive and inductive thematic analysis phases using MAXQDA. The findings indicate that CALL teacher preparation programs should prioritize technological pedagogical knowledge (TPK), then technological content knowledge (TCK), and finally technological knowledge (TK). Moreover, teachers stated that CALL teacher preparation programs should develop their knowledge concerning the intersections of TCK/TPK and TPK/TK. Furthermore, Iranian EFL teachers suggested that CALL can be used during the pandemic if cooperation among teachers, students, and parents will be made, technological-related infrastructures will be developed, and teacher preparation programs will develop EFL teachers' collaboration, digital literacy, teacher autonomy, and TPK with special attention to the educational needs made by the pandemic situation. The findings have implications for teacher educators, professional development course designers and providers, and decision-makers by highlighting promising directions to devote their precious time and resources. © 2022, The Author(s).

ABSTRACT

Purpose: While Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is highly effective at preventing HIV, uptake is low among adolescents. In low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), peer mentors (PMs) are considered best practice to increase PrEP acceptability and uptake. Globally, COVID19 has shifted much education and training to virtual formats. Most young people in LMIC have cell phones. Our objective is to describe our experiences developing and delivering a mixed virtual/physical curriculum for training PrEP PMs. Methods: IRB and local research ethics committee approval was obtained. A literature search (PubMed, EBSCO, USAID website, and MedEd Portal) yielded one published curriculum for PrEP PMs. This curriculum was combined with locally developed HIV PM education modules to create a new curriculum, with planned virtual and physical sessions. Curriculum materials were reviewed and agreed upon by all authors. All sessions were delivered by authors, with the majority delivered by Americans. The first 4 hours were done virtually via Zoom, covering the basics of HIV, detailed information on PrEP, adolescent development, and confidentiality. The remaining sessions were held in person and covered expectations of PMs, basic family planning, research ethics, action planning, role playing, and a review of virtual topics. Feedback was solicited from the PMs after virtual training. A debriefing session was held with the five facilitators involved in training: 1 research staff and 1 physician investigator from Kenya, 1 research staff and 2 physician investigators from the US - all female. Results: All five PMs (aged 21 – 27) participated. One identified as female, and one as LGBTQ. Feedback was solicited via anonymous survey (n=3) after the virtual sessions and debriefing with Kenyan research staff. Respondents strongly agreed that the virtual training was worth their time. Although PMs felt they were able to learn in the virtual format, facilitators noted more engagement during in-person sessions. Facilitators noted the importance of introductions and challenges of building cohesiveness for virtual sessions, particularly with sensitive content and internet limitations restricting video use (eg. low bandwidth, use of cell phones). Kenyan investigators noted that the Kenyan educational system is hierarchical, with students largely learning passively. They felt that this, combined with the newness of virtual learning and minimal dedicated time for introductions, may have hampered active virtual participation. While no PMs pointed to race or accent as limitations, facilitators noted differences between American and Kenyan English idioms, cadence, speed, and pronunciation that may have caused difficulty. Given Kenya's history of colonialism, all raised concerns that PMs may have been more deferential to light-skinned, foreign facilitators. Facilitators who observed both virtual and in-person sessions felt it was easier to break barriers of colonialism and assess for differences in spoken English in person. Facilitators felt that if virtual training were to be used in the future, it would be beneficial to have physical sessions first to set an interactive, educational tone and allow participants to build rapport. Conclusions: Virtual delivery of PM educator training in a LMIC setting is difficult and requires careful consideration or technological limitations and culture.

ABSTRACT

Technology reviews are a specific article genre published in several language teaching and learning journals. Their emergence is likely due to the proliferation of technology that facilitates and supports language acquisition. These reviews aim to increase teachers' and learners' awareness of the forms of technology available and succinctly describe their benefits and limitations for language teaching and learning. As education enters a new digital age, accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is essential to determine which forms of technology support teachers' professional learning and how they can be utilized. This article presents a systematic review of technology reviews published between 2017 and 2022 in five Q1 SCOPUS-indexed language teaching and learning journals: RELC Journal, TESOL Journal, CALICO Journal, Language Learning and Technology and Teaching English as a Second Language Electronic Journal (TESL-EJ). These five journals were the only Q1 language teaching and learning journals we identified that publish technology reviews. All 73 technology reviews published in the 5-year period in the 5 journals were reviewed. Using professional digital competence as a framework, we explore what the articles reveal about how technology is used, as well as the knowledge gaps that remain. We examine the types and features of the technology described in the reviews, the language skills and educational levels of the learners, and the pedagogical implications of technology use. We found that the technology reviews mainly introduced the technological features and functions of the reviewed technologies with less emphasis placed on their pedagogical utilities and social aspects of their use for language teaching. The article concludes with recommendations for authors and journal editors regarding the content that should be included in a technology review to ensure that it is helpful to the profession. We also offer advice to practitioners on how to benefit from technology reviews. © The Author(s) 2023.

ABSTRACT

Summary : This article examines the response of social services organizations and their workers to the COVID-19 pandemic in a northeastern U.S. state. Using an exploratory, cross-sectional survey design with a convenience sample (N = 1472), we ask: (1) how did agencies and social service workers manage service disruptions associated with COVID-19;(2) how did social service workers perceive shifts in clients' needs;(3) how did social service workers experience the transition to remote interactions with clients;and (4) how did social service workers cope with COVID-related transitions and demands. Findings : Our findings tell a story of unprecedented crises alongside powerful attempts at adaptation, innovation, and resilience. Faced with extraordinary need among their clients, fears for their own health, and a breakdown of organizational and community functioning and guidance, social workers were able to learn and implement new technologies, adapt to increasing demands, manage new work-life boundaries, and find ways to address gaps in service while experiencing symptoms of burnout. Application : The impact of supervisory and administrative fragmentation and communication breakdowns in the face of crisis put social workers in an untenable position despite surprising abilities to adapt, innovate, and manage their professional lives while under duress. Assuring better supervisory/administrative infrastructure to support workers as they deliver services during crises will help in future crises.

ABSTRACT

Through the lens of the theory of planned behavior, this article explores how social workers adapt to a new situation due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Three focus group sessions were conducted with 23 social workers from child and youth, family, and elderly services in Hong Kong. Three major themes were generated: (1) repositioning the social work profession, (2) renegotiating contracts with funders, and (3) exploring novel intervention methods. Implications of the findings are discussed. To ensure social workers can respond effectively in crises, an evolving nature of the profession is advocated to enshrine its spirit to serve.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Il n'existe pas, à ce jour, d'étude évaluant la satisfaction des chirurgiens orthopédistes français au sujet de la consultation vidéo et téléphonique. Pour autant, celle-ci a été encouragée en période de pandémie à coronavirus. Aussi nous avons mené une étude prospective afin d'évaluer: 1) le profil des praticiens ayant eu recours à la vidéotéléconsultation (VTC) au cours de la pandémie au SARS-CoV-2 ainsi que les facteurs susceptibles d'influencer son utilisation, 2) la satisfaction des chirurgiens français ayant réalisé des VTC, 3) les avantages, les limites et l'avenir de la VTC. Hypothèse: Notre hypothèse était que la VTC était suffisamment satisfaisante en orthopédie-traumatologie pour être utilisée dans la pratique clinique courante hors période Covid. Matériel et méthode: Il s'agit d'une enquête nationale réalisée sous la forme d'une Évaluation des Pratiques Professionnelles (EPP). Les chirurgiens orthopédistes et traumatologues français ont été contactés à l'aide d'un questionnaire numérisé par l'intermédiaire de la liste mail d'une partie des sociétés professionnelles et savantes françaises, avec une estimation des chirurgiens atteignables de 2000 praticiens. L'enquête portait sur l'utilisation, les modalités, et la satisfaction vis-à-vis de la VTC des chirurgiens orthopédistes français, et leur profil. Le questionnaire nous permettait d'établir le Net Promoter Score (NPS) évaluant sur en nombre absolu, de -100 à 100, la propension à recommander un service. Résultats: Au total, sur une estimation de 2000 praticiens contactés, 280 (14,0%) ont répondu à notre enquête. L'âge moyen était de 47,7 ± 10,0 (30-84) ans. Le taux d'utilisation de la VTC passait de 8,9% (n = 25/280) avant la pandémie à 55,3% (n = 155/280) au cours de celle-ci. Parmi les 155 praticiens ayant pratiqué la VTC la satisfaction globale retrouvait un NPS de -46,4. Au total 51% (n = 79/155) ont répondu être favorables à poursuivre les VTC hors période COVID. Parmi les utilisateurs de VTC, 50,3% (n = 78/155) décrivaient une perte de temps lors de l'examen clinique en VTC par rapport à une visite en présentiel, et 57,4% (n = 89/155) lors de la visualisation des examens complémentaires. Pour 98,1 % des utilisateurs (n = 152/155), la VTC n'était pas aussi satisfaisante que la consultation en présentiel pour l'examen clinique du patient, et seulement 18,1% (n = 28/155) ont programmé des interventions après une VTC isolée. Conclusion: À ce jour, dans le cadre de l'orthopédie-traumatologie en France, la VTC n'a su satisfaire les chirurgiens en raison d'un examen clinique virtuel et non physique, mais elle reste une solution de recours en cas de pandémie.

ABSTRACT

The article discusses the concept of moral injury that refers to a provider's inability to provide care due to the conflict of a clinician's task and their calling to help people. It cites a case where two physical therapists (PT) faced an ethical issue on whether to accept the organization's lower care standard mindset or make independent decisions in the patient's best interest. Also noted are these developments' consequences on the PTs' mental health and their effective delivery of care.
