ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between teacher preparedness for online instruction and affective factors related to work (job satisfaction, job stress, and organizational commitment) as perceived by secondary teachers within a small public school district in Southeast Texas. COVID-19 has shown that at a given moment the world, as we know it, can change. During the summer of the 2020-2021 school year, school districts relied heavily on the use of virtual professional development to educate teachers on the basics of providing online instruction (Ferdig et al., 2020). While this short period of time was beneficial for some, several teachers continued on, trying to grasp the overall concept of online instruction (Marasi et al, 2020). Teacher preparedness contributes to the overall success (Darling-Hammond, 2000) and attitudes of teachers. Naylor and Nyanjom (2020) noted that several factors contribute to teacher feelings about their current organization. These factors include the teacher's overall well-being, job satisfaction, burnout risk and retention, the emotional bonds created with students, teaching strategies, curriculum selection, and lastly, lesson planning efforts contribute to their feelings towards their current work organization. Using the Pearson ProductMoment Correlation within this quantitative study determined that as teacher preparedness increased so did the overall teacher perception of job satisfaction, job stress and organizational commitment. In conclusion, this study sheds light on the importance of meaningful professional development ensuring teacher perceptions are preserved through swift changes. Moreover, the relationship between teacher perception of online preparedness, job satisfaction, job stress and organizational commitment are evident and warranted analysis.

ABSTRACT

EMPLOYEE SATISFACTION The COVID-19 pandemic caused people to yearn to be happier, more fulfilled at work by Henry J. Lindborg Conducting employee surveys to assess quality improvement, strategic alignment, cultural values, and employee satisfaction and engagement showed me that widespread overwork without adequate recognition often coexists with quality aspirations. While teaching a graduate-level class for educators that included a values inventory and detailed time diary, I learned that the burdens of teaching and administration-especially in urban schools-consumed lives, but change was possible for individuals even in failing systems. Ireland, for example, "launched a National Remote Work Strategy in January 2021, intended 'to ensure that remote working is a permanent feature in the Irish workplace' in order to maximize economic, social and environmental benefits.

ABSTRACT

The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted, to date, in an estimated 29 per cent of the New Zealand (NZ) workforce moving quickly from centralised work locations to full time working from home (WFH). The literature prior to these extraordinary events suggests WFH is beneficial for employee wellbeing and performance, and organisational outcomes, notably productivity, retention, and business continuity in times of disruption. Lack of organisational preparedness, technological limitations, managerial reluctance, and the potential drawbacks of social isolation have meant that the rates of regular, planned WFH as a flexible work option have traditionally been low. This paper summarises the knowledge base of benefits and limitations of WFH prior to COVID-19 and speculates how the experiences of WFH during the pandemic are likely to shape the future of WFH for workers, organisations, and employees.

ABSTRACT

Working from home (WFH), teleworking, or telecommuting has become a new work norm since the Covid-19 pandemic. Many organisations are showing an interest in testing a hybrid work style when the pandemic is over;a mix of WFH with office-based work has the potential to improve work-life balance (WLB). Organisations across the globe quickly adopted WFH to maintain their business continuity during the pandemic. However, it co-concurred with particular occupational health and safety (OHS) concerns. Our research review shows that the frequency of WFH is significantly related to its impact on WLB. Women, specifically, are more likely to find it challenging to maintain balance between office work and domestic responsibilities. Additionally, WFH leads to personal costs for many, for example, maintaining a suitable workstation setup at home. The continuous demand for up-skilling/re-skilling due to fast improving technology and job satisfaction is another example of the risk to workers' wellbeing. This research paper reviews the most important risk determinants of WLB due to WFH. We discuss that workplaces should align their strategies in the longer term to support employees' wellbeing risk management. Employers, employees - women particularly - should use this rapid change as an opportunity to learn and grow.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Telemedicine is an emerging field in which physicians can interact electronically with patients to improve health. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of telemedicine has grown exponentially. As physicians work to provide equally high-quality care for their patients remotely, their experiences must be considered. Methods: This study utilized an online anonymous survey of physicians to assess their satisfaction, comfort level and student involvement when using telemedicine for patient care. Results: Overall, physicians’ experiences with the integration of telemedicine into their practices varied based on gender, the presence of medical students, age and prior experience with telemedicine. Physicians are more comfortable with telemedicine now than they had been prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and physicians who had prior experience were less likely to find it stressful to incorporate. Physicians in both the youngest (30–39 years old) and oldest (60 and older) categories reported the highest levels of satisfaction with telemedicine. Female physicians indicated they will be more likely to incorporate more telemedicine into practice in the future, beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. Of the specialties surveyed, family physicians report the lowest levels of comfort and satisfaction with telemedicine. Conclusion: Physician respondents of this survey provided valuable data on the perceptions of the widespread incorporation of telemedicine during the COVID-19 pandemic. Further research can follow which physicians choose to keep telemedicine integrated into their practices and how the demand for these virtual visits may change in the coming months.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has affected the way of life of people, and particularly relationships. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Quality of Relationship of Couple Scale (CRP-ASO) within the context of compulsory social isolation due to COVID-19, in Peru. Methods: The CRP-ASO scale was applied to 499 adults (60% women;Mage = 41,54 years, Sage = 13,48). The internal structure of the instrument was evaluated by exploratory factor analysis (AFE) and confirmatory factor analysis (AFC). Reliability was also estimated by calculating Cronbach’s alpha (α) and McDonald’s omega (coefficients. Results: The item-test correlations indicated that all items should be kept (iHC > 0,2). According to the EFA (KMO = 0,956;Bartlett sphericity test p < 0,01) the emergent factor structure yielded 4 factors, confirmed through the CFA (SRMR = 0,059;R-CFI = 0,921;R-TLI = 0,913;R-RMSEA = 0,077). The factors were called consensus, complicity-intimacy, satisfaction in the relationship and stability in the relationship, with high indicators of internal consistency. Conclusion: It is concluded that the instrument has satisfactory psychometric properties and can be used in similar samples.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: During ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, social isolation and lockdown measures were implemented to prevent spread of virus which created enormous challenges to patient healthcare. In order to overcome these challenges, teleconsultation (telecardiology) was initiated. Objective of this study was to assess outcome of telecardiology using audio/visual/audio-visual consultation among patients with implantable cardiac devices. METHODS: Telecardiology was performed (either physician-initiated or patient-initiated) among 1200 patients over a five-month period (July 13 to December 13, 2020) to review health status of patients to decide further course of treatment and to access their satisfaction level with telecardiology. RESULTS: Teleconsultation was cardiologist-and patient-initiated in 1042 (86.8%) and 158 (13.2%) cases, respectively. 1117 (93.2%) patients were stable, while scheduled admission, urgent hospitalization, and death were noted in 20 (1.8%), 45 (3.9%), and 18 (1.5%) patients, respectively. Next visit was rescheduled in 986 (82.2%), while 127 (10.6%) were called earlier because of battery depletion. Majority (n = 1077, 89.8%) were satisfied. CONCLUSION: Telecardiolgy is an effective option during COVID-19 to minimize interpersonal contact, spread of disease, psychological stress, and burden on already stretched healthcare.

ABSTRACT

Background: People with multiple sclerosis (pwMS) benefit from regular physical exercise. There are positive effects in physical and cognitive performance and in dealing with activities of daily living. In addition, pwMS who exercise regularly prevent themselves from comorbidities such as diabetes, osteoporosis or chronic heart diseases and create biopositive effects in the neurodegenerative disease itself. The head organizations of German health insurances authorized the German Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society in the state of Hesse providing the ambulant rehabilitation program “DMSG-Funktionstraining” for pwMS in 2019. “DMSG-Funktionstraining” (functional training) is an exercise training program developed for people with disabilities or people at risk of disability that takes place weekly and is led by a qualified therapist. It is prescribed by a doctor (duration between 12 and 24 months) and is part of outpatient medical rehabilitation. Methods: From the 1st of October 2019 until the 13th of March 2020 training groups were started throughout the state. In April 2020, 91 participants and 53 qualified coaches were evaluated via questionnaire. Participants and coaches evaluated the value of “DMSG-Funktionstraining,” the organizational strategies, the infrastructural conditions and the framework. Results: The return rate was about 86.8 % by “DMSG-Funktionstraining” participants and 56.6 % by “DMSG-Funktionstraining” coaches. Seventy-five questionnaires by the participants and 30 questionnaires by the coaches were included in descriptive analyses. The sample participant was 56.1 ± 7.1 years old, was diagnosed before 17.7 ± 9.9 years and had 2.1 ± 1.2 therapy units in total per week. The sample coach was 42.73 ± 10.2 years old. The respondents were sport therapists, physiotherapists, ergotherapists and yoga teachers. The big challenge for “DMSG-Funktionstraining” coaches was outlined in the heterogeneity of the group in one common training session. The disabilities were very different in regard to mobility and that meant a high level of training preparation and organization. Both the participants and the coaches evaluated the dynamic and the conversation possibilities in the training group as positive. The training contents were considered to be diversified and the coaches were assessed as competent. The distance between place of living and the training location was about 8.5 ± 8.4 kilometers and seemed to be attainable by the participants. In regard to accessibility, the responses varied. Considering the infrastructure, the organization strategies and the preparation, “Funktionstraining” was described as laborious by the coaches. Discussion: In conclusion, the difficulty with group training for people with a disease that combines highly varied symptomatic outcomes presents a big challenge. The results of this accompanying research in a preliminary project period can be described as auspicious in regard to the implementation of “DMSG-Funktionstraining” in the long term. There was a high level of satisfaction among “DMSG-Funktionstraining” participants. The critical point lies especially in the infrastructural implementation and needs further development. Based on the underlying results and the new circumstances due to the corona pandemic, the “DMSG-Funktionstraining” needed a new concept to transfer group training for pwMS to a virtual training room. Furthermore, the accompanying research turns out to have a high priority in order to gain a high-quality level in health care and self-help for pwMS, prospectively.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the effects of possible disruptions in education and follow-up on anxiety and depression in parents of children receiving special education support for speech and language therapy. Materials and Methods A total of 111 parents whose children required special education due to speech and/or language impairments took part in the study. After obtaining the history of children receiving speech and language therapy that was interrupted due to the pandemic and the demographic information of the parents who filled out the questionnaire, the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory was used to determine the parents' anxiety level and the Depression Anxiety Stress Scale was used to determine their depression level. Results Due to COVID-19, 63.1 percent of the participants were unable to access special education for more than two months. While 62.2 percent of parents who completed the questionnaires did not feel hopeless or pessimistic about their children's future, 16.2 percent did. The parents who filled out the forms had high trait anxiety and medium-high state anxiety, according to their State Trait Anxiety scores. There was a positive statistically significant relationship between state anxiety and trait anxiety. Conclusion The anxiety levels of the parents were already high due to the situation of their children, and the interruption of education may have added to their anxiety.

ABSTRACT

The covid-19 pandemic determined that different governments established mandatory confinement or quarantine;for this reason, the education had to be carried out at a distance or remotely;However, some universities already taught this modality;on the other hand, these changes caused discontent for many students because they were forcibly drawn to this modality without having been the choice for their professional training. In this context, the role played by the academic guide turned out to be fundamental to motivate and keep them hooked, preventing students from abandoning their careers. The objective of the study was to determine the relationship between the accompaniment of the academic guide and the level of academic satisfaction in the students of a private university during the COVID-19 pandemic. The quantitative approach method was used. From the statistical processing, it was concluded that there is a significant relationship between the variables academic guidance and academic satisfaction.

ABSTRACT

New vaccines are being developed in response to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Vaccination provides a crucial preventive approach for managing COVID-19. We investigated adults’ willingness to take COVID-19 vaccines in the Zhejiang province, and their cognitions regarding COVID-19, when the COVID-19 vaccine is authorized under Emergency Use Administration. An online survey was conducted from September to October 2020, which included social-demographic characteristics, risk perception, acceptance and influencing factors in relation to COVID-19 vaccines. Multivariate logistic regression was performed to identify the influencing factors of vaccination acceptance. Of the participants, 70% intended to be vaccinated when the COVID-19 vaccine was approved under Emergency Use Administration, among 2171 valid questionnaires. Logistic regression revealed that being male, having a high cognitive score regarding COVID-19, the belief that the COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective, and the belief that one will be infected with SARS-CoV-2 this fall and winter, were associated with a greater probability of accepting vaccination. Respondents with junior college/university education or above were less likely to accept vaccination. Concerns about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine were the main factors hindering vaccination acceptance. Health education is important for promoting accurate public knowledge regarding COVID-19 vaccination.

ABSTRACT

Background: The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted psychosocial well-being and mental health of students across the world. Although students are vulnerable to depression and suicidal ideation, few studies have been conducted in Uganda. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of depression and suicidal ideation, and associated factors among undergraduate university students in Uganda. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted among undergraduates [N = 540;363 males;mean age = 23.3 (± 2.64) years] recruited from four universities using an online questionnaire that explored sociodemographic factors, depression, and other associated factors. The Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) was used to assess depression, and Item 9 was used to assess suicidal ideation in the past 2 weeks. Multivariable logistic regression analyses were performed to determine the factors associated with depression and suicidal ideation. Results: The prevalence of moderate to severe depression was 20% (n = 108) (cut-off: 10/27 based on the PHQ-9), and the prevalence of past-2-week suicidal ideation was 13.89% (n = 75) (cut-off: 1/3 based on the PHQ-9 Item 9). About half of the individuals who screened positive for depression had suicidal ideation. Factors associated with depression were: having relationship issues [adjusted odds ratio (aOR) = 1.79, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.13–2.81, p = 0.012], and having a history of sexual abuse (aOR = 2.06, 95% CI = 1.10–3.84, p = 0.023). Factors associated with reducing the risk of depression were: satisfaction with current academic performance (aOR = 0.50, 95% CI = 0.32–0.79, p = 0.003), and being in the fifth year of academic study (aOR = 0.16, 95% CI = 0.03–0.73, p = 0.018). Factors associated with suicidal ideation were: smoking cigarettes and/or marijuana (aOR = 4.83, 95% CI = 1.10–21.12, p = 0.037), and having financial tuition constraints (aOR = 1.85, 95% CI = 1.08–3.16, p = 0.024), However, satisfaction with current academic performance reduced the likelihood of suicidal ideation (aOR = 0.40, 95% CI = 0.23–0.70, p = 0.001). Conclusion: Approximately one-fifth of undergraduate university students were moderately to severely depressed, especially those who had relationship issues and those with a history of sexual abuse. Suicidal ideation was common among smokers and those having financial tuition constraints. Therefore, it is recommended that the university authorities implement measures to provide psychological support for the students with problems concerning financial tuition constraints, relationships, and sexual abuse. Also, all students with depression should be screened for suicidality.

ABSTRACT

Background: The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many medical education institutions to switch from in-person to online learning environments. There is an existing gap in knowledge about the effectiveness of virtual learning for medical students. Objective: The purpose of the study was to determine if virtual orthopaedic surgery away rotations (VOSAR) benefit medical students and programs. Methods: Virtual rotations were created at two large residency programs for fourth-year medical students. From October 12, 2020 through December 28, 2020, satisfaction and quality were assessed using a 22-question survey, residency interview, rank, and match data. Forty-two fourth-year medical students participated, 38 of whom responded to the survey. Results: Most students stated course objectives were clear and consistent with coursework. Most were pleased with the variety of cases and presentations and were able to meaningfully interact with faculty and residents. Most stated they would participate again and suggest the rotation to others. Twenty-five of 42 participants were ranked by at least one program;39 were accepted into residency positions, 21 of which were in orthopaedic surgery. Conclusions: The results indicate that the VOSAR benefits students and programs. Based on the success of the VOSAR, both programs continued to offer the curriculum for 2021. Level of Evidence: Level IV.

ABSTRACT

Objective Online/computer-assisted learning has been used extensively in medical education in standalone and hybrid formats. Because of time restraints, the online format may be ideal for providing foundational review material in clinical courses, but the effectiveness of the online format for review purposes in this setting has not been adequately investigated. This project compared student learning and satisfaction delivered by two different methods in a special populations course for third-year doctor of chiropractic students. The two methods of delivery were: 1) a face-to-face lecture (F2FL) on pediatric spinal anatomy, and 2) an online learning module (OLM) covering the same material. Methods This study was approved by the institutional IRB. A cohort comparison, mixed methods study design compared student learning and satisfaction of a pediatric spinal anatomy review delivered through a F2FL (n=22) and OLM (n=18) in two successive 2019 (pre-COVID) course offerings. Previously validated pre- and post-tests for the material were given to the students one week prior and one week following the intervention (either F2FL or week-long availability of the OLM). An instructor not affiliated with the course completed a “Similarity of Material Assessment” that evaluated the similarity of content in each method of delivery. Identical tests were given to each group. In addition, a survey assessing the method of delivery, comfort with technology, and preference of F2FL vs. OLM of review material, was completed by both groups immediately following administration of the post-test. Differences between pre-and post-test results were assessed using repeated measures ANOVA with F2FL and OLM as groups and pre-and post-test results as repeated measures. Results The content presented to the F2FL and OLM groups was judged to be the same by the independent instructor. Testing results showed an improvement with both groups from preto post-test [F2FL 54.6%, p<0.0001 vs. OLM 48.9%, p<0.0001 (OLM 52.35%, p<0.0001 with one dramatic outlier removed)], with no significant difference between test results between the F2FL and OLM groups [p=0.53 (p=0.82 with outlier removed)]. The survey showed: 83.3% of OLM students felt the online method was effective and 88.9% would prefer the material to be presented online;80% of the F2F group thought the lecture was engaging/effective and 60% would have preferred to have the material presented online. Conclusions The OLM was found to be as effective as the F2FL for the content assessed, and students were highly satisfied with the online method of instruction of the anatomy review material. This strategy could potentially be applied to provide additional review materials fundamental to other clinical courses. The OLM method allows for the material to be developed and given by content experts while also freeing valuable in-class time to be used for more experiential learning in clinical courses.

ABSTRACT

Worsened by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, first-year college students face unique academic and social stressors during the transitional period from high school to college. The present study examined the role of psychological resources (i.e., hope, gratitude, and COVID-19 protective self-efficacy) in mitigating the negative psychological impact of the pandemic. Four hundred seventy-six first-year college students (M-age = 17.97, SD = .59;70.8% female) from a large private university in New York completed two online surveys during the first and seventh week of the Fall 2020 academic semester, respectively. We found that gratitude, hope, and COVID-19 protective self-efficacy were associated with improved psychological well-being over time. Our findings suggest that hope mitigated the detrimental consequences of those with low levels of COVID-19 protective self-efficacy. Specifically, first-year college students with low levels of COVID-19 protective self-efficacy and low levels of hope experienced greater loneliness over time. In contrast, we found that gratitude enhanced the benefits of having high levels of COVID-19 protective self-efficacy. Among those with high levels of gratitude, COVID-19 protective self-efficacy was associated with lower depressive symptoms over time, but this relationship was not significant among those with low levels of gratitude. Hope mitigated the detrimental consequences of those with low levels of COVID-19 protective self-efficacy, while gratitude enhanced the ameliorative effects of those with high levels of COVID-19 protective self-efficacy. One limitation of the present study is the generalizability of the sample to first-year college students from other educational settings and geographic regions. Implications for college students and university administrators are discussed.

ABSTRACT

Introduction. The sudden changes in school educational modality due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social isolation have affected the lifestyle, mental and emotional health, and perception of their academic training in students with high intellectual abilities. The aim of this study was to analyze the predictor variables of sleepiness, satisfaction with studies, and emotional exhaustion in students with high intellectual abilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Method. This study involved 409 third to fifth grade high school students with high intellectual abilities and who receive a free special education associated with talent and high achievement (COAR). Ages ranged from 14 to 17 years (M = 15.26, SD = .89). The Brief Study Satisfaction Scale (EBSE), Emotional Fatigue Scale (ECE), Eating Habits and Physical Activity Scale (EHAAF), Pittsburgh Index, Generalized Anxiety Disorder Scale-2 (GAD-2) and Epworth Short Sleepiness Scale (ESE) were used. Descriptive statistics were calculated, and the normality of the variables was assessed. In addition, a predictive model was analyzed based on goodness-of-fit indices using structural equation modeling. The analyses were performed using SPSS 24.0 and Amos 24.0 statistical software. Results. The descriptive analysis yielded adequate skewness and kurtosis coefficients. The analyses showed that all variables were significantly correlated (p < .01). Likewise, the predictive model of sleepiness, satisfaction with studies and emotional exhaustion presents adequate goodness-of-fit indices (X-2 = 7.427, gl = 6, p = .283, X-2/gl = 1.238, TLI = 0.994, CFI = 0.998, RMSEA = 0.024 and SRMR = 0.186). Conclusion. This study presents a predictive model of sleepiness, study satisfaction, and emotional exhaustion in students with high intellectual abilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is concluded that physical activity, eating habits and sleep quality are predictors of sleepiness and, in turn, generalized anxiety, physical activity and sleep quality predict emotional fatigue, which is also a predictor of satisfaction with studies.

ABSTRACT

Compliance with the public health authority guidelines is crucial to prevent the spread of COVID-19 successfully. By analyzing individual responses to a survey, we identify the weakest links, i.e., those who do not follow the guidelines as much as others do, and why they are failing. We find that individuals older than 60 are most enthusiastic in protecting their and others' health and that those younger than 30 are least enthusiastic. We categorize the factors possibly influencing the precautionary behavior into three groups: preference, belief and constraint. It turns out that although beliefs on the effectiveness of protective measures do predict individual differences in their endeavors, they do not vary significantly across gender and age groups. On the other hand, risk, time, and social preferences explain individual differences well and significantly differ across gender and age groups. We also derive an implication for managing long-term risks due to fatigue and depression.

ABSTRACT

The nature and impacts of living in urban settings are gaining their saliences in developed and developing countries alike, particularly during the crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic. During the crisis, the wellbeing of urban society became intertwined with a so-called "new lifestyle", which involved quarantine and working in a home environment. Facing such challenges, urban gardening is deemed as an alternative intervention to enhance residents' wellbeing and the environmental sustainability of urban areas, including Indonesian cities. A preliminary study was conducted to monitor the wellbeing of urban gardening practitioners, as well as investigate the motivation and any association between gardening and wellbeing with the COVID-19 pandemic situation by analysing data from Indonesian metropolitan areas. The study utilized instruments of "satisfaction with life scale (SWLS)" and "scale of positive and negative experience (SPANE)" to investigate the subjective wellbeing of 67 respondents. Amongst others, we identified that urban gardening practitioners tend to be in positive moods and have better overall wellbeing;52.24% of the respondents were highly satisfied with their life. Furthermore, we observed a variety of motivations to start gardening, with hobby and utilization of free space as prominent reasons, followed by other motivations such as environmental benefit and aesthetic. Integrating the environmental benefits of urban gardening and the implications for an individual's wellbeing can be reflected for sustainable urban development and policies during the COVID-19 pandemic.
