ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: The utility of basic intensive care unit (ICU) training comprising a "1-day course" has been scientifically evaluated and reported in very few studies, with almost no such study from resource-limited settings. AIM: The study assessed the utility of basic ICU training comprising of a "1-day course" in increasing the knowledge of nonintensivist doctors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is an observational study conducted at a medical university in North India in 2020. The participants were nonintensivist doctors attending the course. The course was designed by intensivists, and it had four domains. The participants were categorised on the basis of their duration of ICU experience and broad speciality. Pretest and posttest was administered, which was analysed to ascertain the gain in the knowledge score. RESULTS: A total of 252 participants were included, of which the majority were from the clinical medicine speciality (85.3%) and had ICU experience of 1-6 months (47.6%). There was a significant improvement in the mean total score of the participants after training from 14/25 to 19/25, with a mean difference (MD) of 5.02 (p < 0.001). Based on ICU experience, in groups I (<1 month), II (1-6 months), and III (>6 months), there was a significant improvement in the total score of the participants after training with MD with 95% confidence interval (CI) limits of 5.27 (4.65-5.90), 4.70 (4.38-5.02), and 5.33 (4.89-5.78), respectively. In the clinical surgery specialty (n = 37), there was a significant improvement in the total score after training from 11/25 to 16.4/25 with an MD (95% CI limits) of 5.38 (4.4-6.3). Similarly, in the clinical medicine group (n = 215), the MD (95% CI limits) score after training was 4.95 (4.71-5.20), from 14.5/25 to 19.5/25. In feedback, more than half of the participants showed interest in joining ICU after training. CONCLUSIONS: Training nonintensivist doctors for 1 day can be useful in improving their knowledge, regardless of their prior ICU experience and speciality.

ABSTRACT

This paper reports on the current status of international technical cooperation, reflecting the views of the Bureau of International Health Cooperation of the National Center for Global Health and Medicine (NCGM) during the COVID-19 pandemic. To appropriately respond to the pandemic, the need for assistance to low- and middle-income countries has increased. Since 2020, there has been a shift from on-site to online international technical cooperation to avoid human contact. While online solutions increased the number of participants in international conferences and training, business travel costs and time were reduced. However, it became necessary to consider not only effective labor-management practices to enable participation in meetings held in different time zones but also quicker ways to develop online training materials, which took a long time. In the future, a hybrid format combining offline and online international technical cooperation will become mainstream.

ABSTRACT

This article explores how one large university library created, with minimal resources, a suite of openly licensed tutorials on information literacy. The article also describes how another academic library adapted the tutorials for its own goals to fill a need during the crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic. The authors hope that this model shows potential for others to follow, and they call on the library community to develop more openly licensed resources using intuitive and affordable technology. They encourage libraries creating content, as well as those updating material, to share, adapt, and customize open educational resources to meet their local instruction goals and student needs for information literacy.

ABSTRACT

The present time is going through one of the worst global crises due to the lockdown, social distancing norms as one of the measures for containing COVID-19, in almost all the countries. Even before the crisis, the hotel industry as a whole lacked proper appreciation and professionalism. This reduction could be due to low employee satisfaction arising out of unstructured and poor wage systems and professionalism. Human resources management is imperative for better commitment to the workplace and for the employee job satisfaction. Therefore, considering the research gap, the motive of this paper is to assess the relationship between human resource practices (HRP) and job satisfaction (JS). Data were collected through questionnaire from 82 hotels in Uttrakhand. The validity of the model and hypotheses was tested from Smart-PLS. The results showed two practices (recruitment & selection and performance appraisal) of human resources have a positive relationship with JS. The limitations and directions for future research are discussed. This study extends the literature by empirically adducing evidence the relationship between HRM practices and job satisfaction of the hotel industry in Uttrakhand.

ABSTRACT

Reference services in academic libraries often focus on user education and giving students the skills to perform their own searches. This article describes a new Research Concierge Service established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic by Ozarks Technical Community College (OTC) in southwest Missouri. The service entails library staff curating a small number of sources in response to a student's research request. In many cases, the librarians' guidance has led to sustained interactions with students, refining their questions and helping them to focus their research interests. The Research Concierge Service has become so popular that the high level of individual contact it requires may eventually exceed the capacity of OTC's limited staff. OTC librarians believe, however, that such personal interactions are more valuable than any of their current opportunities for group tutorials or library instruction.

ABSTRACT

In "Bridging the Digital Divide: WiFi Hot Spots as a Means of Digital Equity,” Meghan Salsbury and Mary Anne Hansen detail the development of a project to provide wireless access to their rural students. Confronting the digital divide inherent in sparsely populated Montana, the authors obtained a grant to purchase and lend wireless hot spots to students and faculty members as long-term circulating items. The article describes resources in this area and explains the benefits of ambient noise for productivity and maximized concentration. Calling it "innovation under pressure,” their case study highlights two professional development initiatives—one for current library instructors and one for MLIS students—and the rapid transition of their instruction in the university's academic writing program to online delivery.

ABSTRACT

When a collegiate athlete becomes injured, their firstline of defense is to see their university's Athletic Trainer (AT). ATs are considered major stakeholders in the overall health of athletes. Because of their job nature and the level of interactions they have with athletes, ATs are more likely to have a level of trust with their athletes that would encourage them to speak up during distress that may impact their mental health. In the age of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uprise in discussion of racial injustice, athletes are not immune to the stress the pandemics present and may impact their athletic performance. ATs may have to address this stress in their care with athletes. Understanding sports psychology and utilizing cultural competency training is important when working with athletes. Previous research suggests ATs feel competent in their psychological skills training and find themselves to be culturally competent. However, they would like to have more opportunities to receive post-professional training in psychological skills. The purpose of this study is to assess ATs' (both currently practicing and students) attitudes regarding psychological skills training as part of their education to treat athletes, their attitudes regarding receiving post-certification training in psychological skills, and attitudes towards cultural competency training. A survey was disseminated to 2000 student and currently practicing ATs that are current members of the National Athletic Training Association (NATA). This survey consisted of demographic questions, several Likert-style questions to assess for opinions of training, and the Cultural Competency Assessment (CCA) to evaluate cultural competency behaviors, awareness, and sensitivity when working as a healthcare provider. Out of 2000 participants, only 116 student and practicing ATs opened the survey and 91 total participants were used in the final calculations. Overall, participants continued to endorse a need for more post-certification training. As well, 81% of total participants perceived themselves in a neutral/negative light when asked if they were adequately trained in sports psychology. Twenty-one individuals said they did not receive training in sports psychology during their graduate training and a majority stated they wished they had received that training. Conversely, more total participants believed they were adequately trained in cultural competency skills. However, more practicing ATs perceived themselves in a negative manner when asked if they had been adequately trained in cultural competency. This study continues to iterate the want from ATs for more post-certification training in sports psychology and cultural competency skills. To assist in this need, psychologists who are experts in these areas may consider assisting in training these healthcare professionals. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2023 APA, all rights reserved)

ABSTRACT

Introduction. The significant changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have forced teachers to provide adaptive learning for their students. This situation needs to be supported by psychological factors that are present and attached to a teacher. The limited knowledge and readiness of teachers in preparing for existing learning changes are a major obstacle in implementing learning during a pandemic, especially at the elementary school level. The aim of the study is to explore the perceptions, attitudes, and knowledge of elementary school teachers in a teacher training program during the pandemic. Research methods. Two studies were applied, study 1 used thematic content analysis to determine the perceptions of effective online learning models during the pandemic. Furthermore, study 2 was conducted to ascertain the readiness of teachers based on their attitudes and knowledge in applying effective online learning models during teacher training programs. A total of 203 elementary school teachers were involved in this study and were selected using purposive sampling in the province of Banten, Indonesia. Results. The results of the study provide information that there are variations in respondents' perceptions in doing online learning and they assume that online learning causes many problems in various aspects of life. This is indicated by the answers given by respondents when filling out the instrument in the form of open questions. Specifically, the answers given refer to the perceived negative situation compared to direct learning at school. Meanwhile, 85% of respondents perceive that face-to-face learning is the most effective learning model. Other results are also supported by the correlation between the attitude and knowledge of respondents which shows a positive and significant relationship. The correlation results show a value of 0.254 with a significance level below 1%. Conclusion. The results of this study indicate new and comprehensive information regarding the importance of paying attention to teachers' psychological factors, including their perceptions, attitudes and knowledge, especially in preparing for online learning. In general, the research also provides a clear picture of the right mechanism for a teacher at the elementary school level to carry out online learning that matches the characteristics of elementary school students. Of course, the usefulness of the results of this study can be used as a benchmark not only for teachers themselves, but also for schools and related policy makers to create adaptive learning. © 2022 LLC Ecological Help.

ABSTRACT

The objective of this study is to analyze the professional ethical knowledge of teachers in the use of technologies by teachers in training. Starting from the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) model to measure the correct inclusion of technologies in the classroom, a descriptive mixed methodological design study has been carried out. The instruments used were the Likert scale questionnaire and the personal interview, both organized in four dimensions on the professional ethical knowledge, the ethics of technology, the pedagogical technological ethics and the disciplinary technological ethics of future teachers. The questionnaire was applied to a sample of 632 professors in training from a European university in the context of COVID-19 and 429 students participated in the interview. The findings revealed little or no training in professional ethical knowledge of the teachers in training;the need to deepen such knowledge to face the current, pandemic and post-pandemic context of education and the importance of including the ethical component in the TPACK model for a correct and ethical implementation of digital resources in the classroom. © 2022 Authors.

ABSTRACT

The Covid-19 health crisis led to the adaptation of teaching staff to fully online training, which meant that many teachers had to undertake accelerated online teaching training courses. This research focuses on the evaluation of self-perceived effectiveness of a course on online teaching digital tools for university professors in Latin America. A field study was carried out based on the perception of the participants. Three aspects were considered: changes in knowledge (α= 0.962), how able participants felt to use the tools (α=0.873) and satisfaction with various aspects of the course (α= 0.942). A pre-post e-survey was applied. Significant favourable differences were found in self-reported knowledge of tools for content management, collaboration, assessment and online tutoring at the end of the course, with a medium effect size. They perceived themselves to be able to use the tools (mean: 3.68, scale 1-4). Overall satisfaction was also high (3.8, scale 1-4). The results point to the effectiveness of the teacher refresher course for online teaching. Follow-up is recommended to assess the implementation of what has been learned. © 2022 Authors.

ABSTRACT

The problem of teaching mathematics in modern Ukrainian schools is general, but it has become more difficult for students with a non-mathematical background. Despite numerous studies of this problem, no specific recommendations have been made. Therefore, to develop and implement an experimental method of teaching mathematics aimed at activating the cognitive activity of non-mathematical specialties pupils. The goal was solved by conducting a questionnaire among students and teachers, which allowed us to reveal and deepen the aspects of the specified problem. Two groups were created: experimental and control. The experimental group studied according to the new model of education, and the control group-according to traditional methods of teaching mathematics. The study revealed a complex of interrelated problems, both for teachers and students. Among the problems, the lack of motivational mechanisms and a complex pedagogical approach to explaining mathematics and the limited amount of teaching mathematics to students with a non-mathematical background are of primary importance. The results of the study indicate the need to introduce the specifics of conducting classes, which would focus on understanding the subject through imaginative thinking. The need to develop textbooks and manuals, which would focus on a more in-depth and understandable teaching of the subject with exercises and tasks for humanitarian areas, has been proven. At the same time, such measures became urgent due to the introduction of quarantine measures of the Covid-2019 pandemic. © Copyright for this article is retained by the author(s), with first publication rights granted to the journal.

ABSTRACT

The current mental health crisis is affecting athletes in significant and concerning ways. Several contemporary or newly-appreciated factors may be interacting to contribute to this crisis and to its impact in sport. Those factors include: emerging adulthood as a particularly challenging phase of life;discrimination and racism;increasing professionalization of sports at younger ages;lack of mental health literacy and resources;the impact of technology and the 24/7 world;and the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, at the same time, mental health stigma is showing signs of lessening. To further decrease stigma and enhance help-seeking, all stakeholders should appreciate mental health as inseparable from other aspects of physical health in athletes. Simultaneous with working to decrease risk factors in sport, we should work to optimize protective factors. Specifically, we should work toward a culture of mental health literacy, cultural competency, and positive supports in the sporting environment.

ABSTRACT

Background: Healthcare workers are the White army compacted the COVID-19 epidemic, and reports worldwide have shown an increase in SARS-CoV-2 among healthcare workers due to their direct interactions with infected patients. This study aimed to examine the clinical manifestations and risk factors for SARS-CoV-2 infection among healthcare workers in Palestine and offer recommendations to ensure health workers' safety and adopt workplace safety policies. Method(s): This questionnaire-based cross-sectional observational study was conducted using an online questionnaire to collect information about SARS-CoV-2 transmission, signs, symptoms, and treatment reported by healthcare workers. Furthermore, we explored policies, protocols, and practices that make health workers vulnerable to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Result(s): A total of 389 healthcare workers were included, 216 (55.5%) were exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, 173 (44.5%) were infected with the virus, and the prevalence of hospitalization was 16%. The most commonly reported symptoms are fatigue, weakness, and muscle pain. Female healthcare workers experienced a significantly extended duration of symptoms than male workers. Direct contact (working less than 1.5 m) with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients and lack of COVID-19 and PPE training were risk factors for COVID-19 infection among HCWs. Conclusion(s): The healthcare system must ensure a safe work environment and adopt policies and procedures to ensure HCW safety, proper training, and resource availability to cope with crises.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the waste management knowledge and performance of health personnel in the COVID-19 epidemic. Method(s): This cross-sectional study was conducted on 470 of personnel in hospitals, health centers, and affiliated subordinate units of Jiroft University of Medical Sciences were selected utilizing the available sampling method from June to December 2020. The researcher-made questionnaire was developed utilizing available articles and books in the field of waste. The results were analyzed by SPSS software version 24 and independent t-test and Kruskal-Wallis tests. Result(s): According to the results of study, the status of information, production, and collection of waste in employees were desirable, but separation, transportation, and recycling were not appropriate. Moreover, there was a statistically significant difference in information (p = 0.000), production (p = 0.000), collection (p = 0.000) and general waste management (p = 0.001) among health centers. Also it was a significant relationship between residence (p = 0.006), education (p = 0.029), and location of work (p = 0.001) with waste management. Samples living in the village had a higher average score than city residents. The location of work also showed that the employees of the Health homes had a higher waste management score than other health centers. Conclusion(s): According to the low performance of employees working in cities and hospitals in the field of waste separation, transportation and recycling, it is recommended that continuous training of employees electronically and virtually (preparing a short video on how to sort and recycle waste, inviting a recycling management specialist for training, role-playing). Also it is importance to improve performance and motivation and the existence of practical rules, instructions and adequate monitoring. Copyright © 2022 Kheirkhah Vakilabad et al.

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 pandemic makes it difficult for the teaching and learning process to be conducted freely using all learning modes due to the limited interaction between teachers and students by distance. Therefore, teachers must creatively utilize various learning models to ensure students are properly taught during the pandemic. In this regard, this study aims to elaborate on the relationship between training management, effectiveness, and its impact on the teaching creativity of public teachers from kindergarten to upper secondary level. This is an online quantitative survey with a sample of state-funded teachers consisting of civil, honorary, and contract teachers. These three types of teachers were included in the category of teachers of the State Civil Apparatus. The accidental sampling technique was used to obtain data from 405 respondents through the questionnaire distribution for a month. This was greater than the initial target of 200 people as a condition for the eligibility of the number of respondents when using structural equation modeling (SEM)—AMOS analysis. A total of four hypotheses were proposed in this study, with three accepted and one rejected. The result showed that training management contributed significantly to training effectiveness but had a minimal contribution to increasing teachers teaching creativity during the pandemic. Furthermore, training effectiveness had a significant contribution to the invention of teaching teachers and was a full mediator. This study also found the lack of references about management training and the relationships built. Proper management is a key factor in encouraging the effectiveness of activity, but it is unable to improve the creativity of teaching teachers directly. The role of training effectiveness was significant because it increases the contribution of training management to teacher teaching creativity. This research also showed that the training carried out on ASN only be successful with good management. The effectiveness of teachers teaching creativity can only be increased through training, especially during a pandemic.
