ABSTRACT

Education is a valuable aspect of society, but COVID-19 made a drastic impact on the education system. It necessitated a flexible approach among institutions, Teachers, and students. For managing education effectively, institutions have initiated to apply electronic mode in the education system and comparable features are available on many platforms. It is argued that students are not aware of such platforms and they also pass from Fear, Anxiety, and control addiction. Further, Focus upon Training of Teachers with the articulation of particular Curriculum is necessitated and also course has not designed in a different language to increase their reach and more opportunities for the youth of rural India. Low Internet interpretation demands much investment for making sufficient digital infrastructure and there are certain societal barriers to online education. Still, faith in private players’ investment in education is not supported due to their profit-oriented nature. Present chapters attract the adoption of online education to respond to the recent pandemics, particularly in Higher Education in India. For this purpose, some factors of digitalization that are in use in Indian Universities try to evaluate based on static analysis of Factors Awareness, Anxiety, Network Issues, Problems of students are facing not having required technology along with language barriers. On the other hand Training of Teachers, and the process of online education at Indian University. The present chapter attracts, how managing Education in pandemic based on an empirical study regarding paramount factors of higher education in the Indian Universities. © 2023, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.

ABSTRACT

This book is an introduction to the biological basis of behavior, broadly defined, with practical applications for higher education programs that focus on advances in neuroscience. It has a special focus on training practitioners based on American Psychological Association (APA) health service psychology guidelines. It reviews and digests information for clinical, counseling, and school psychologists serving clients of all ages in a variety of settings, such as schools, hospitals, and clinics. Content for all developmental stages, including birth to geriatric practices are highlighted. This book will help health service psychologists and counselors to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse population by providing cutting-edge, evidence-based, ecologically valid neuropsychological interventions currently lacking within the field. Cultural considerations are provided within each chapter, which is especially important given societal inequity that continues to persist within our world. Implications for the COVID-19 pandemic are also discussed in light of neuroscientific advances in medicine. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)

ABSTRACT

In the 4th quarter of 2019, a new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) was detected in Wuhan, China. The virus spread to more than 118,000 cases and caused 4,291 deaths in 114 countries before the World Health Organization (WHO) declared it a pandemic in February 2020 (WHO, 2020). Amidst the disjointed response to the pandemic, many organizations were forced to close permanently, other organizations survived, and some prospered. This study examines organizational decision-making around business model innovation during the early phase of the pandemic. Eight semi-structured interviews were conducted with key decision-makers in four organizations. These organizations operated in the hospitality, medical technology, financial services, and professional management development training industries. This study examined how organizational leaders made sense of challenges and took action, in order to reveal insight into business model innovation. The main findings of this study show how business model innovation occurred in organizations to meet three key challenges: COVID-19 health and safety expectations of stakeholders, navigation of the financial uncertainties, and attempted improvement of environmental, social, and governance performance (ESG). Leaders within the organizations tended to engage in similar sensemaking about the challenges during the pandemic and business model innovations.

ABSTRACT

In response to the novel coronavirus (COVID19), many mental health provider trainings for evidence-based therapies (EBTs) shifted to virtual rather than in-person formats. The purpose of this paper is to compare workshops in EBTs for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that were formerly conducted in person to workshops conducted virtually during the pandemic. Providers reported similar ratings for learning objective achievements between in-person and virtual trainings. Providers and trainers reported facilitators and barriers to learning in virtual training and provided recommendations for virtual trainings. Both provider participants and trainers identified a loss of networking opportunities as the primary drawback of virtual training.

ABSTRACT

A group of British Columbia North Pacific Coast First Nations (NPC Nations) have been actively developing Geographic Response Strategies (GRS) within their territories since 2018. A multi-year project plan included three years of field work (2019-2021), during which technical experts would support First Nations communities in transferring knowledge and practice. The implementation of lockdowns, travel restrictions, and public health advisories beginning in March 2020 substantially changed the planned approach and ultimately spurred novel approaches to remotely supporting field surveys and mentoring First Nations community members to lead oil spill response surveys. To enable the continuation of field work, a contracting team worked closely with the NPC Nations to create a strategic approach to collaborate through web-based conference platforms and cloud-based GIS. There were several imperatives to continue this work – First Nations communities view marine oil spill planning as a top priority based on past spills in their territories and risks from coastal shipping. The project funding was grant-based and time-bound, expiring at the end of FY2021-22. Despite the pandemic, the participating First Nations still had a successful field season with roughly 40 combined days in the field from April 2020 to November 2021, with approximately 221 sites surveys and close to 500 tactics developed. Through innovation, collaboration, and trial and error, 12 BC First Nations continued to develop GRS to help strengthen their marine response capacity while adhering to the strict COVID-19 guidelines set in place by their local communities, which were often more stringent than provincial and national policies to protect their elders and other vulnerable community members in remote areas with limited medical facilities. This paper discusses the specific modifications to the field surveying process driven by the pandemic and the technology tools used to communicate and capture data accurately. In addition, this paper examines how Geographic Information System (GIS) was incorporated into the GRS development, including GIS training for community members and the use of tablet-based applications to gather field data. It describes a successful approach to peer-to-peer knowledge transfer across First Nations communities, building a community of practice and mutual support. Finally, this paper reports lessons learned and suggests best practices to continue broadening the marine response and preparedness capacity within the BC First Nations. © 2022 44th AMOP Technical Seminar on Environmental Contamination and Response.

ABSTRACT

A key driver of global radiology disparities is the lack of trained professionals and a lack of formal training programs, despite the increasing availability of previously cost-prohibitive radiology equipment.1 In Africa, limited access to radiology training programs is severe at both the diagnostic radiology (DR) residency and radiology subspecialty (RS) fellowship levels. Tanzania Interventional Radiology Fellowship In 2017, an IR Readiness Assessment at Muhimbili National Hospital (MNH) in Dar es Salaam revealed a complete lack of trained IR personnel and disposable equipment as their two main obstacles to initiating IR service.6,7 Beginning in October 2018, through close collaboration among MNH, Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS), and multiple US institutions including Yale and Emory Universities under the Road2IR consortium, rotating teams of IR faculty, nurses, and technologists were deployed to MNH for hands-on teaching. The two-year fellowship programs provide ample time and structure for trainees to gain the necessary competencies in their subspecialties, compared to unstructured clinical apprenticeships or short-term observer-based models.3,11 Providing in-country training opportunities is a critical step toward addressing the severe radiology disparities in Africa.

ABSTRACT

Before COVID-19, the Sibling Support Program: A Family-Centered Mental Health Initiative (SSP) provided a training opportunity for mental health trainees to facilitate support groups for siblings of youth with psychiatric needs with the goal of reducing trauma and building resiliency among siblings. As part of the SSP, caregivers also joined psychoeducational groups led by parent mentors with the goal of increasing parental competency and confidence. The SSP groups were offered in-person for these family members at partnering hospitals and clinics in Massachusetts. With the arrival of COVID-19, the SSP director reconfigured the program as an online offering for trainees and family members using Zoom and Google Meet. Specific aspects of training were adapted to meet the trainees' needs, including a new and virtual orientation tool, as well as a "debrief" style of supervision that was accessed online. Trainees demonstrated flexibility and creativity in their approach to facilitating sibling support groups on virtual platforms and learned that family communication, privacy issues, program accessibility, and participant geographics all impact the group experience. At a time when it is unsafe to meet in person, virtual support groups provide valuable learning opportunities for mental health trainees and critical assistance for families of youth struggling with mental health issues.

ABSTRACT

Now-a-days E-Learning System is very popular. But in this COVID-19 pandemic situation, it has become necessity. Classes, examinations, even result generation have all been done through online. But it involves several types of threats and risk factors as it is based on electronic communication media. To implement authenticity, integrity and non-repudiation of the information, we must use suitable encryption technique. In this paper we have proposed an object oriented analysis and design of El Gamaldigital signature algorithm to implement authenticity, integrity and non-repudiation of mark sheet which would be generated by the Admin for the student at the time of publishing the result of an examination. We also have analysed the performance using a standard object oriented metric such as Metric for Object Oriented Design (MOOD metric) to ensure the software quality as well as justifying the good software design of our proposed model.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Many persons with aphasia (PWA) have limited access to SLT due to limited insurance reimbursement, speech-language pathologist (SLP) shortages, case-load capacities, geographical barriers , physical disabilities, transportation barriers, and COVID-19. Several studies have found that telespeech services for (PWA) yields comparable outcomes to in-person speech-language treatment (SLT) (Munsell, et al., 2019;Lavoie et al., 2017;Zheng et al., 2016). The purpose of this study was to determine if telespeech is an effective and feasible service delivery model for PWA with the clinical implication to help facilitate legislative change regarding accessibility and reimbursement.Method: Ten PWA completed 8 hours of remote speech-language treatment over 4 weeks. These synchronous telespeech therapy sessions employed the following interventions: Oral Reading for Language in Aphasia (ORLA) and Conversational Script Training (CST). Before and after the treatment phase, participants completed a series of tests specifically adapted to be administered remotely. A telehealth hearing screening and the Western Aphasia Battery - Revised (WAB-R;Kertesz, 2007) were administered as qualifying measures. Pre- and post-assessment outcome measures included: (1) the Communication Activities of Daily Living-3 (CADL-3;Holland et al., 2018);(2) the Boston Naming Test, Second Edition (BNT-2;Kaplan et al., 2001);and (3) the Communication Confidence Rating Scale for Aphasia (CCRSA;Cherney et al., 2011) Participants completed a telespeech satisfaction survey during the post-assessment phase.Results: All participants demonstrated improvements in CCRSA scores, total words produced correctly during CST, and total wor:ds produced correctly during ORLA. There were no differences in CADL-3 and BNT scores. All participants were highly satisfied with telespeech as an alternative service delivery model and indicated they would use it in the future.Discussion: The results of this study provides stakeholders with empirical evidence to support the efficacy and feasibility of SLP telespeech. Furthermore, it provides clinicians with specific assessment and intervention protocol modifications contributing to the development of best practice standards for SLP telehealth. Future research should continue to investigate the effectiveness and feasibility of telespeech using larger samples including a wider range of aphasia severity levels, explicit generalization tasks, and Random Control Trial designs to directly compare telespeech and in-person SLT.

ABSTRACT

As a result of the lockdowns and social distancing measures imposed by COVID-19, courts in many common law jurisdictions were required to rapidly accelerate their use of remote court hearings. This article will explore the experiences of courts in Australia, England and Wales and Hong Kong in more broadly adopting this mode of judicial determination as part of a wider consideration as to whether Hong Kong should more permanently, post COVID-19, extend its use of remote hearings. Furthermore, this article will explore the implications which arise for advocacy-related training for Hong Kong students undertaking their Postgraduate Graduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL) programme, in order to ensure that such students are equipped for the ethical, technical and other skills-based challenges arising from these developments. In particular, this article will consider how existing PCLL benchmarks can be refined to facilitate this process. © 2022, Sweet and Maxwell-Thomson Reuters. All rights reserved.

ABSTRACT

In 2020, the rapid onset of the COVID-19 pandemic made the delivery of in-person social work continuing education impossible, suddenly leaving online training as the only viable and safe alternative. This article describes the experience of a large continuing education program, based at a school of social work, and its transition to deliver synchronous webinars for the first time. This process included cancelling 200 previously scheduled in person programs and rapidly moving to online synchronous webinars. It also led to a shift in staff roles and responsibilities and the recognition of the value of virtual mutual support among the team. Some of the key lessons learned during this transition include building staff and trainer webinar literacy, troubleshooting and navigating online platforms, development of best practice skills for online training, and evaluation of synchronous webinars.

ABSTRACT

Background: Type 2 diabetes is the most common health problem worldwide. Exercise and dietary interventions can help individuals with type 2 diabetes to improve their condition. Objectives: The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of aerobic training (AT) and turmeric supplement (TS) on the quality of life (QoL) of middle-aged hyperlipidemic women with type 2 diabetes. Methods: This study investigated 42 women with type 2 diabetes aged 45 to 60 years, who were volunteered and divided into four groups, including control + placebo (C;n = 11), AT + placebo (AT;n = 10), TS (n = 11), and AT + TS (n = 11). Aerobic training program was conducted for eight weeks (3 sessions per week for 20 to 40 minutes with 60-75% of maximum heart rate). The TS and AT + TS consumed 2100 mg per day of turmeric for eight weeks. The 26-item WHO QoL questionnaire (WHO QoL-BREF) was used to assess QoL. Finally, the data were statistically analyzed at a significant level of P < 0.05 using one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), Tukey’s post hoc, and an independent t-test with SPSS. Results: AT + TS (P = 0.001), AT (P = 0.023), and TS (P = 0.039) significantly improved the average QoL after eight weeks. However, the improvement in AT + TS was more significant for the QoL of type 2 diabetic patients with hyperlipidemia compared to other groups. Conclusions: According to the results, exercise and turmeric supplementation can be used to improve the QoL of middle-aged women with type 2 hyperlipidemia during COVID-19 quarantine.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Nursing services are one of the criteria for hospital health care. Nurses are the health care workers who have the most contact with patients. Nurses had relatively limited interaction with patients during the epidemic. As a result, it is necessary to increase caring behavior in service delivery. AIM: This study aims to determine the effect of caring training on the implementation of caring behavior and work culture of nurses in providing services to COVID-19 patients in an Indonesia’s National Referral Hospital. METHODS: This study used a quasi-experimental design, with one-group pretest-posttest approach. The study was carried out in Indonesia’s National Referral Hospital. The research was conducted between August and December 2021. The caring training lasted around 4 h. Purposive sampling was used to select the sample, which included as many as 92 persons. The Caring Behaviors Inventory-42 and value culture tools were used to collect data. Questionnaires and observation sheets were utilized to retrieve direct measurement data. The collected data were analyzed using a univariate test and a Wilcoxon test for bivariate analysis. RESULTS: The average age of nurses was 34 years old, with an average working time of 9 years. There was no significant difference in knowledge between before and after care training (p >0.05). However, there was a significant difference in attitude, work culture, and caring behavior between before and after caring training (p < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: When nurses provided care to COVID-19 patients in an Indonesian national referral hospital, the caring training had an impact on their behavior and work culture. The hospital should continue a compassionate training program, reinforce it with regulations, monitor assessments, and apply rewords and consequences.

ABSTRACT

Background Several studies have shown that new medical graduates feel unprepared for their role as clinicians. In October 2019 Salisbury District Hospital (SDH) piloted a successful 'hold-the-bleep' simulation day for 5th year Southampton medical students. In March 2020, in response to COVID-19, medical students were given early registration. The majority of FiY1s had not received or missed out on formal bleep training due to graduating early. Methodology Over 2 days 8 FiY1s were issued with a bleep for a half-day period, continuing normal daily tasks whilst being bleeped for phone advice or to assess a simulated patient. 4 clinical stations and 4 phone calls were designed to simulate roles of FY1s with SIM-Man simulating the patients. Immediate feedback was recorded and generic themes discussed at a structured session, discussing what went well or was challenging. Each FiY1 completed a feedback for assessing confidence and wrote a reflective piece. Results Feedback was qualitatively and quantitatively positive. All found the SIM session useful and would recommend it. 7 of 8 candidates had a numerical increase in confidence in managing and prioritising calls. Conclusions and recommendations The stations addressed communication skills, prioritisation, clinical and practical skills, and drug prescribing. The improvement in FiY1s confidence and skills is likely to lead to improved patient outcome and satisfaction. Faculty who role played, reported an improvement in the trainees' performance. These results are similar to those from Liverpool and previous bleep SIM sessions we held at SDH.

ABSTRACT

Introduction & Objectives: The significant reduction in elective surgery initially outlined by the National Cabinet in March 2020 and instituted by respective state governments due to the COVID-19 pandemic, led to a parallel overall reduction in patient based surgical training opportunities for trainees. The physical patient, as a training resource, was in short supply. In order to achieve competency and proficiency, surgical training in Australia and New Zealand is structured around each of the ten Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) competencies and occurs predominantly in a patient based clinical setting. Our objective was to quantify the impact of COVID-19 on surgical training, to appraise the establishment of our local regional hospital provision of urology service plan and assess the impact COVID-19 had on unit workload. We review the adaptive approach to surgical training taken up in our institution and highlight the unique challenges trainees were faced with due to the pandemic, allowing them to demonstrate many of the RACS nontechnical skill competencies Methods: To quantify the impact of COVID-19 on surgical training, we completed a retrospective audit of the Urology Department activity during each Victorian pandemic wave in 2020 at our large regional teaching hospital. Corresponding weeks in the year prior were used as the control. Interviews with department members illustrated the adaptive approach to surgical training used at our institution. Results: A State of Disaster Surgical Triage Team (SODSTT) was established with surgical operations split between one public and two private hospitals in our region. A pandemic triaging protocol was established, and 335 Category-2 patients were re-triaged. All meetings were moved to online video conferencing formats. The first wave saw a 13.8% reduction in clinic reviews, with the second wave having an overall increase of 8.8% with 56% being telehealth. The second wave saw an 11.0% reduction in overall operating, with reduced emergency operating in both the first and second wave of 17.4% and 45.5% respectively. These reductions impacted surgical technical skill training, resulting in surgical education provided through technology platforms including webinars, podcasts and pre-recorded operative videos. The unique challenges trainees were faced with due to the pandemic encouraged development and expertise of the non-technical RACS competencies. Conclusions: We must reflect on the continual changes in our departments, considering the use of all educational opportunities and tools to ensure our trainees continue to develop and progress through their training, with particular focus on RACS competencies and non-technical skills.
