ABSTRACT

Resumen La violencia contra las mujeres en la pareja es un problema que afecta a la mayoría de las sociedades. Si bien se ha descrito a los hombres que ejercen esta violencia desde el punto de vista clínico, analizar la aceptación de las actitudes sexistas permitiría incorporar la influencia de otras variables contextúales que expliquen el fenómeno desde una perspectiva más amplia. En el presente trabajo se analiza, con una muestra de 121 hombres que han ejercido violencia contra las mujeres, la relación entre la percepción de la violencia como asunto privado y las actitudes sexistas. Los resultados muestran que quienes consideran que la violencia contra la pareja es un asunto privado obtienen puntuaciones más elevadas tanto en el componente hostil como en el benévolo, y que es en la dimensión hostil del sexismo donde se hallan mayores diferencias (t = 4.03; p = .000), con un tamaño del efecto alto (d = 0.75). Identificar la violencia contra las mujeres como un problema social y no como un asunto privado parece ser un paso relevante en las intervenciones para «construir las actitudes discriminatorias y erradicar la violencia hacia las mujeres.


Abstract Intimate partner violence against women is a problem that affects most societies. Although men who perpetrate this violence have been described from a clinical point of view, analyzing the acceptance of sexist attitudes would make it possible to incorporate the influence of other contextual variables that explain the phenomenon from a broader perspective. In the present study, the relationship between the perception of violence as a private matter and sexist attitudes is analyzed with a sample of 121 men who have perpetrated violence against women. The results show that those who consider violence against the partner as a private matter obtain higher scores, both in the hostile and benevolent components, and that it is in the hostile dimension of sexism where the greatest differences are found (t = 4.03; p = .000), with a high effect size (d= .75). Identifying violence against women as a social problem and not as a private matter seems to be a relevant step in interventions to deconstruct discriminatory attitudes and eradicate violence against women.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Objetivo: Determinar si existen diferencias entre conocimientos, percepción y actitudes de las medidas de prevención relacionadas al COVID-19 entre los odontólogos de los distintos distritos de Lima, Perú de mayor y menor número de contagiados. Métodos: El tamaño de muestra fue un total de 117 odontólogos pertenecientes a los distritos de mayor número de contagiados y 125 de los distritos de menor número de contagiados. Estos distritos de ambos extremos se basaron en las tasas de contagio que presentaron en agosto del 2020 según el Ministerio de Salud. Se utilizó un cuestionario como instrumento que constó de 33 preguntas cerradas de opción múltiple y se distribuyó vía redes sociales. Para el análisis univariado, se obtuvo la estadística descriptiva donde se calcularon las medidas de frecuencia absoluta y relativa para las variables dependientes, independientes y covariables. Para el análisis bivariado, se realizó la comparación entre las variables conocimiento, percepción y actitudes con los odontólogos de los distritos con mayor y menor número de contagiados mediante la prueba Chicuadrado. Resultados: Los odontólogos de los distritos de mayor número de contagiados presentan mayores conocimientos sobre los principales síntomas, vías de transmisión y medidas de prevención frente a la COVID-19 a comparación de los odontólogos de los distritos de menor número de contagiados. Además, los de mayor número de contagiados perciben a la COVID-19 como muy peligroso, mientras que los de menor número de contagiados lo perciben moderadamente peligroso y muy peligroso en proporciones iguales. Por último, con respecto a la actitud, los de mayor número de contagiados no atienden a un paciente sospechoso y lo derivan a un centro de salud, mientras que los de menor número de contagiados sí los atienden y los derivan a un centro de salud. Conclusión: Se encontraron diferencias entre conocimientos, percepción y actitudes de las medidas de prevención relacionadas al COVID-19 entre los odontólogos de los distintos distritos de Lima, Perú de mayor y menor número de contagiados.


Knowledge, perception and attitudes of prevention measures related to COVID-19 among dentists from different districts of Lima, Peru with the highest and lowest number of infected Abstract Objective: To determine if there are differences between knowledge, perception and attitudes of the prevention measures related to COVID-19 among the dentists of the different districts of Lima, Peru with the highest and lowest number of infection cases. Methods: The sample size was 265 dentists, of which 117 were from the districts with the greatest impact and 148 from the districts with the least impact. These districts of both extremes were based on the contagion rates that they presented in August 2020 according to the Ministry of Health. A questionnaire was used as an instrument and it was distributed via social networks. For the univariate analysis, the descriptive statistics were obtained where the absolute and relative frequency measures were calculated for the dependent, independent and covariate variables. For the bivariate analysis, a comparison was made between the variable's knowledge, perception and attitudes with the dentists of the districts with the highest and lowest number of infected using the Chi-square test. Results: The dentists of the districts with the highest impact have greater knowledge about the main symptoms, transmission routes and prevention measures against COVID-19 compared to the dentists of the districts with the least impact. In addition, those with the greatest impact perceive COVID-19 as very dangerous, while those with the least impact perceive it as moderately dangerous and very dangerous in equal proportions. Finally, with regard to attitude, those with the greatest impact do not care for a suspicious patient and refer him to a health center, while those with the least impact do care for them and refer them to a health center. Conclusión: Finally, differences were found between knowledge, perception and attitudes of the prevention measures related to COVID-19 among the dentists of the different districts of Lima, Peru with the highest and lowest number of infected people.

ABSTRACT

Resumen El engaño en la publicidad es una práctica que ha ido en aumento para lograr la venta de productos y servicios e implica un asunto ético. El objetivo del presente trabajo fue examinar la relación del escepticismo en la publicidad del "Buen Fin" y la percepción de engaño en dicha publicidad y su efecto en la actitud hacia la misma, la credibilidad en los anuncios y la intención de compra de los millennials. Se realizó una investigación cuantitativa, explicativa y transversal a 392 millennials radicados en la Ciudad de México. Los resultados mostraron que, efectivamente, el escepticismo en la publicidad del "Buen Fin" incrementará la percepción de engaño en la misma y ambos parámetros influirán negativamente en forma indirecta en la intención de compra, ya que la confiabilidad en el producto queda en duda.


Abstract Deception in advertising is a practice that has been increasing to achieve the sale of products and services and involves an ethical issue. The objective of this work was to examine the relationship of skepticism and the perception of deception in the advertising of "Buen Fin" and its effect on the attitude, credibility on advertisements, and purchase intention of millennials. A quantitative, explanatory and cross-sectional research was conducted on 392 millennials living in Mexico City. The results showed that, indeed, skepticism on "Buen Fin" advertising will increase deception perception and both parameters will negatively influence indirectly purchase intention, since the reliability of the product is in doubt.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN: Según Global Cancer Observatory de la IARC, el cáncer oral en Argentina tiene una tasa de mortalidad de 1,1 por 100.00 habitantes para 2020. La mayoría de los casos se diagnostican en etapas tardías aun cuando la detección temprana y el control de los factores de riesgo son las herramientas más eficaces para reducir la alta letalidad de esta enfermedad. Se desconoce el nivel de conocimientos, actitudes y prácticas de los odontólogos acerca de la prevención del cáncer oral en Argentina. Evaluar a través de un cuestionario, los conocimientos, actitudes y prácticas sobre el cáncer oral en la provincia de Salta, Argentina. En una muestra a conveniencia de 76 odontólogos que ejercían su profesión y que asistían a un evento de la colegiatura odontológica provincial, se aplicó una encuesta confidencial sobre conocimientos, actitudes y prácticas sobre la prevención del cáncer oral. Se analizó la encuesta a partir de estadística descriptiva e inferen cial. Los odontólogos tienen conocimiento sobre los factores de riesgo del cáncer oral, tales como consumo de tabaco (88,2 %), presencia de lesiones potencialmente malignas (84,2 %), consumo de alcohol, pero también sobre tipos de lesiones premalignas (88,2 %) y principal localización del cáncer oral (84,2 %). Las actitudes dependen de "tener una especialidad en el campo odontológico" y de "haber tomado un curso formal en los últimos 12 meses" (c2 = 13,512, GL= 4, p=0,009). Las prácticas dependen de "haber tomado un curso formal en los últimos 12 meses", de la "creencia de que el profesional está adecuadamente preparado para realizar un examen para cáncer oral", y el "tipo de práctica profesional" (c2 = 14,078, GL=7, p=0,034). Este estudio reveló que es necesario fortalecer los conocimiento, actitudes y prácticas de los odontólogos de la Provincia de Salta en Argentina frente a la prevención del cáncer oral, esto con el propósito de diseñar estrategias de salud pública realmente efectivas, que además no solo deben ser ejecutadas por la autoridad sanitaria, sino que deben ser examinadas por las escuelas de Odontología.


ABSTRACT: According to Global Cancer Observatory of the IARC, oral cancer in Argentina has a mortality rate of 1.1 per 100,000 inhabitants for 2020. Most cases diagnosed in late stages even when early detection and control of risk factors are the most effective tools to reduce the high lethality of this disease. The level of knowledge, attitudes and practices of dentists regarding oral cancer prevention in Argentina is unknown. To evaluate, through a questionnaire, the knowledge, attitudes and practices about oral cancer in the province of Salta, Argentina. In a convenience sample of 76 dentists who practiced their profession and who attended an event of the provincial dental association, a confidential survey applied on knowledge, attitudes and practices on the prevention of oral cancer. The survey analyzed based on descriptive and inferential statistics. Dentists are aware of risk factors for oral cancer, such as tobacco use (88.2 %), presence of potentially malignant lesions (84.2 %), alcohol consumption, but also about types of premalignant lesions. (88.2 %) and main location of oral cancer (84.2 %). Attitudes depend on "having a specialty in the dental field" and "having taken a formal course in the last 12 months" (c2 = 13.512, DF= 4, p=0.009). Practices depend on "having taken a formal course in the last 12 months", on the "belief that the professional is adequately prepared to perform an examination for oral cancer", and the "type of professional practice" (c2 = 14.078, DF=7, p=0.034). This study revealed that it is necessary to strengthen the knowledge, attitudes and practices of dentists in the Province of Salta in Argentina regarding the prevention of oral cancer, this with the purpose of designing really effective public health strategies, which also not only must be executed by the health authority but must be examined by dental schools.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Esta investigación analizó las actitudes hacia la muerte expresadas por un grupo de adultos jóvenes en contexto COVID-19. Los participantes fueron 10 jóvenes residentes en la región de Tarapacá (60% mujeres, 40% hombres) entre 18 a 29 años. La metodología tuvo un enfoque mixto de preponderancia cualitativa y diseño secuencial. En la primera etapa, se administró el Perfil Revisado de Actitudes hacia la muerte [PAM-R] para medir cinco actitudes: Miedo a la muerte; Evitación de la muerte; Aceptación de acercamiento; Aceptación de escape; y Aceptación neutral. Posteriormente, se aplicaron entrevistas semiestructuradas que profundizaron los resultados, mediante la exploración de las percepciones, emociones y pensamientos de los participantes durante la pandemia. Finalmente, se triangularon los datos cuantitativos y cualitativos para obtener una mayor validez. Los resultados señalan a estas actitudes como un fenómeno contextual, cuya expresión depende de diversos elementos personales y del entorno, siendo los más importantes los miedos asociados a familiares. En jóvenes, la muerte fue comprendida como una realidad lejana. Esto influyó en una alta neutralidad y bajo miedo a la muerte propia. El contexto COVID-19 actuó como un factor influyente en las actitudes, particularmente en el miedo al contagio o a la posibilidad de morir. Si bien los jóvenes reconocieron la peligrosidad del virus, sus necesidades emocionales-afectivas se vislumbraron como problemas más urgentes. Por lo tanto, los miedos en contexto COVID-19 no evitaron la exposición al contagio en compañía de amigos. Estas conductas fueron significadas como medidas de autocuidado psicológico, particularmente en jóvenes con Aceptación de Escape.


Abstract This research analyzed the attitudes towards death expressed by a group of young adults in a COVID-19 context. The participants were 10 young residents in the Tarapacá region (60% women, 40% men) between 18 and 29 years old. The methodology had a mixed approach of qualitative preponderance and sequential design. First, the Death Attitude Profile-Revised [DAP-R] was administered to measure five attitudes: Fear of Death, Death Avoidance, Approach Acceptance, Escape Acceptance, and Neutral Acceptance. Subsequently, semi-structured interviews were applied that deepened the results, by exploring the perceptions, emotions and thoughts of the participants during the pandemic. Finally, the quantitative and qualitative data were triangulated to obtain greater validity. The results point to these attitudes as a contextual phenomenon, the expression of which depends on various personal and environmental elements, the most important being the fears associated with family members. In young people, death was understood as a distant reality. This influenced a high neutrality and low fear of own death. The COVID-19 context acted as an influencing factor in attitudes, particularly in fear of contagion or the possibility of dying. Although the young people recognized the dangerousness of the virus, their emotional-affective needs were seen as more urgent problems. Therefore, fears in the COVID-19 context did not prevent exposure to contagion in the company of friends. These behaviors were signified as measures of psychological self-care, particularly in young people with Escape Acceptance.


Resumo Este estudo teve como objetivo analisar as atitudes de um grupo de jovens adultos em relação a morte no contexto de COVID-19. Nela participaram 10 jovens que vivem na região de Tarapacá (60% mulheres, 40% homens) os quais tinham entre 18 e 29 anos. A metodologia da pesquisa teve uma abordagem mista de preponderância qualitativa e desenho de investigação sequencial. Na primeira etapa, foi administrado o Perfil Revisado de Atitudes em Relação a Morte [PAM-R] para medir cinco atitudes: Medo da morte; Evitar a morte; Aceitação de abordagem; Aceitação de fuga; e aceitação neutra. Posteriormente, foram aplicadas entrevistas semi-estruturadas que aprofundaram os resultados, explorando as percepções, emoções e pensamentos dos participantes durante a pandemia. Por fim, os dados quantitativos e qualitativos foram triangulados para obter maior validade. Os resultados apontam essas atitudes como um fenômeno contextual, cuja expressão depende de diversos elementos pessoais e do meio ambiente, sendo o mais importante deles, os medos associados aos parentes. Nos jovens, a morte era entendida como uma realidade distante. Isso influenciou uma alta neutralidade e pouco medo da propia morte. O contexto de COVID-19 atuou como um fator influente nas atitudes, particularmente no medo de contágio ou na possibilidade de morrer. Enquanto os jovens reconheciam o perigo do vírus, suas necessidades emotivas e afetivas eram vistas como problemas mais urgentes. Portanto, os temores no contexto de COVID-19 não impediram a exposição ao contágio na companhia de amigos. Esses comportamentos foram considerados como medidas de autocuidado psicológico, particularmente em jovens com Aceitação da Fuga da morte.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To assess parental oral health knowledge, attitude, practice (KAP), perceptions of their children's oral health status, and explore the barriers to dental care utilization among Libyan parents living in Malaysia. Material and Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted among Libyan parents of children aged 1- 7 years old who lived in Malaysia. A 63-items questionnaire was constructed, validated, and pretested. Six hundred self-administered questionnaires were distributed Data were analyzed using IBM SPSS version 22.0. A generalized Linear Model was used to test the possible relationships between KAP scores and different sociodemographic factors. A significant level for all the statistical tests was predetermined at p≤0.05. Results: A total of 381 questionnaires were included, of which fathers' responses constituted 189 (49.6%), and mothers' responses constituted 192 (50.4%). Most of the parents exhibited good oral health knowledge (77.2%), positive attitudes (86.4%), and were adherent to good oral health practice (78.7%) with mean values of 10.6 (SD=1.8), 9.5 (SD=1.5), and 7.9 (SD=1.4) respectively. Gender, age, and income had statistically significant relationships (p<0.05) with KAP scores. The majority (81.1%) of parents rated their child's oral health as good. More than one-third of parents (35.7%) perceived no need for dental care, and 18.6% perceived no need to treat the primary teeth as they will be replaced. Conclusion: Good Knowledge and positive attitudes towards oral health are not necessarily translated into favorable practices. The lack of perceived need and low value attributed to primary teeth created barriers to seek dental care services among the majority of surveyed parents. Attention must be directed to behavior change strategies rather than providing oral health education alone to improve the children's oral health outcomes.


Objetivo: Evaluar el conocimiento, la actitud y la práctica de la salud bucal de los padres (CAP), las percepciones del estado de salud bucal de sus hijos y explorar las barreras para la utilización de la atención dental entre los padres libios que viven en Malasia. Material y Métodos: Se realizó un estudio transversal entre padres libios de niños de 1 a 7 años que vivían en Malasia. Se construyó, validó y probó previamente un cuestionario de 63 ítems. Se distribuyeron 600 cuestionarios autoadministrados. Los datos se analizaron con IBM SPSS versión 22.0. Se utilizó un modelo lineal generalizado para probar las posibles relaciones entre las puntuaciones KAP y diferentes factores sociodemográficos. Se predeterminó un nivel de significancia para todas las pruebas estadísticas en p? 0,05. Resultados: Se incluyeron un total de 381 cuestionarios, de los cuales las respuestas de los padres constituyeron 189 (49,6%) y las respuestas de las madres 192 (50,4%). La mayoría de los padres exhibieron buenos conocimientos sobre salud bucal (77,2 %), actitudes positivas (86,4 %) y se adhirieron a buenas prácticas de salud bucal (78,7 %) con valores medios de 10,6 (DE=1,8), 9,5 (DE=1,5) , y 7,9 (DE=1,4) respectivamente. El género, la edad y los ingresos tuvieron relaciones estadísticamente significativas (p<0,05) con las puntuaciones KAP. La mayoría (81,1%) de los padres calificaron la salud bucal de sus hijos como buena. Más de un tercio de los padres (35,7%) no percibieron la necesidad de atención dental y el 18,6% no percibieron la necesidad de tratar los dientes primarios, ya que serán reemplazados. Conclusión: El buen conocimiento y las actitudes positivas hacia la salud bucal no necesariamente se traducen en prácticas favorables. La falta de necesidad percibida y el bajo valor atribuido a los dientes primarios crearon barreras para buscar servicios de atención dental entre la mayoría de los padres encuestados. La atención se debe dirigir a las estrategias de cambio de comportamiento en lugar de brindar educación sobre salud bucal únicamente para mejorar los resultados de salud bucal de los niños.

ABSTRACT

Resumo Considerando que comunicar a morte de paciente a familiares é tarefa difícil para profissionais de saúde, o objetivo desta pesquisa foi identificar na literatura recomendações para reduzir os malefícios dessa situação. Trata-se de estudo qualitativo realizado por meio de revisão bibliográfica nas bases de dados do Portal Capes com a utilização dos termos "morte" e "comunicação". Os resultados, obtidos em 18 artigos selecionados, foram divididos em três categorias: formação profissional, preparo familiar e prática profissional. Quanto à formação profissional, indicou-se, sobretudo, treinamento por role playing precedido de fundamentação teórica; para o preparo dos familiares, recomendou-se promover diálogo enquanto o paciente vive; em relação à prática profissional, aconselhou-se compartilhar informações entre colegas e adotar medidas para controle emocional. Constatou-se que práticas simuladas, troca de informações entre profissionais, controle emocional dos profissionais e diálogo com e entre familiares contribuem para reduzir o malefício da comunicação de morte.


Abstract Considering that informing family members of a patient's death is an arduous task for health professionals, the objective of this research was to identify in the literature recommendations to reduce the distress caused by this situation. This is a qualitative study carried out by means of a literature review on the Capes Portal database using the terms "death" and "communication." The results, obtained from 18 selected articles, were divided into three categories: professional training, family preparation, and professional practice. Regarding professional training, it was indicated, above all, training by role playing preceded by theoretical foundations; for family members' preparation, the recommendation was to engage in dialogue while the patient is alive; in relation to professional practice, the advice given was information sharing between colleagues and adoption of measures for emotional control. It was found that simulated practices, information sharing between professionals, emotional control of professionals and dialogue with and between family members contribute to reducing the distress when communicating death.

ABSTRACT

SUMMARY OBJECTIVE: This study aimed at the oral health problems of elderly patients with diabetes. A training course of integrated traditional Chinese and Western medicine was constructed, helping patients improve their oral health quality of life. METHODS: A randomized controlled prospective experimental study was conducted. A total of 190 elderly patients were divided randomly into an observation group and a control group with 95 cases in each. The control group received regular health education, while the observation group was based on the control group to implement the integrated experiential learning of traditional Chinese and Western medicine in small groups. The oral health knowledge, attitude, behavior, and blood glucose control status along with the oral health quality of life of the two groups were compared before the intervention and at 3-month postintervention. RESULTS: Three months after the intervention, the fasting blood glucose control and the 2-h postprandial blood glucose/glycosylated hemoglobin levels in the observation group were significantly better than in the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (p<0.05). The oral health quality of life in the observation group was significantly better than in the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (p<0.05). CONCLUSION: The small-group experiential learning model of integrated Chinese and Western medicine can promote the transformation of knowledge-beliefs-behaviors in elderly patients with diabetes, which is conducive to controlling blood sugar levels and improving the quality of oral health.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To analyze the effect of an educational intervention on the attitudes of university professors towards suicidal behavior. Methods: Experimental study, which carried out an educational intervention with 100 university professors, divided into two groups, control and intervention, developed in three moments, pre-assessment, intervention, and post-assessment, using the Eskin's Attitudes Towards Suicide Scale (E-ATSS). Comparisons before and after intervention in the same group were performed using the paired t-test for dependent samples and the Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test, and for comparisons between groups the paired t-test for independent samples and the Mann-Whitney U test were used, the significance level adopted was p < 0.05. Results: There was a change in the attitude of professors in the two domains of the suicide scale such as mental illness (p<0.001) and punishment after death (p<0.001) whose attitudes were negative in the pre-assessment phase. For the control group, no changes were observed. Conclusion: The educational intervention promoted positive changes in attitudes, with a significant change evaluated at the end of the intervention in the domains: suicide as mental illness and punishment after death.

ABSTRACT

Informed decisions about one's sexual and reproductive health can be made through family planning. Women of reproductive age in rural Sierra Leone's Western area were asked to participate in a survey to determine their attitudes and knowledge toward family planning and the use of contraceptives. A descriptive cross-sectional study survey was conducted in the Western Area Rural of Sierra Leone. Females in the range of 15 to 49 years old were included in the study. The research was conducted from November 2021 to December 2021. Using a pre-designed and pretested questionnaire, 180 women were assessed for their knowledge, attitudes, and practices regarding family planning. According to the study, all participants knew about family planning, but only 68.3% had used contraceptives. There were more than half who learned about it from the media. The study found that 95% of participants had a positive attitude towards contraceptives. Most commonly, contraceptives used were oral pills (31.6), injections (21.1%), implants (19.1%), lactational amenorrhea (13.8%), condoms (8.8%), and intrauterine devices (5%). In our study, the most common reasons given by participants for not using contraceptives were; not willing to disclose 52.6%, a desire for a child 19.2%, fear of side effects 15.7%, currently pregnant 8.7%, and against religious beliefs 3.5%. The study shows that even if people are aware and educated about contraceptives, they may not use them. Educating and motivating people and improving access to family planning services are still necessary to improve the effectiveness and appropriateness of contraceptive use and halt the population growth trend.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: In sub ­ Saharan Africa, oral health services are greatly hampered by low availability and poor accessibility to health care and these are various interrelated factors responsible. This study determined the factors that influence oral health seeking behavior among patients attending outpatients' clinic. Methodology: A total of 460patients were selected into the study from the outpatients' clinic using systematic random sampling. Data was collected and was analyzed using SPSS 17. The significant level was set at 0.05 Results: Of the 97.3% of the respondents with awareness of oral health facility, 90.9% of them had oral health facility within 5km distance. The commonest complaint was toothache. Majority of the respondents (88.2%) accessed orthodox oral health services mostly for teeth extraction (61.3%). There was statistically significant difference between the awareness of Oral health facility and closeness to residence. Conclusion: Age, awareness and attitude have positive effect on health seeking behavior of patients.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION@#The purpose of this study was to assess the application of the early warning score system (EWS-S) and gauge physician awareness, perceptions of necessity and attitudes regarding these tools based on previously experienced unnoticed clinical deterioration (CDET).@*METHODS@#A cross-sectional survey was carried out via an online questionnaire at a large 3,500-bed Class 3A general hospital in China. A total of 299 physicians of adult general wards were asked to answer a translated questionnaire that was localised from the original version. Demographic profiles of patients were included as well as three other sections assessing awareness of CDET/EWS-S and gauging attitudes towards and perceptions of the necessity of EWS-S at our hospital.@*RESULTS@#A high level of physician awareness of the CDET problem was observed. Most physicians knew about the existence of a systematic assessment tool for clinical application. Physicians with previous experience in reanimation, unplanned transfer to intensive care unit (UTICU) and/or death tended to consider EWS-S necessary in attentive and well-trained staff (p < 0.05). Physicians who had previous experience with UTICU were more likely to recommend implementing EWS-S in their wards compared with those without such experience (p < 0.05).@*CONCLUSION@#Most physicians have positive attitudes towards EWS-S. However, their awareness should be further heightened. Physicians who had previous experience with CDET/UTICU were more likely to employ EWS-S in their clinical practices. To better facilitate the implementation of EWS-S in Chinese hospitals, existing facilities, policy supports, standardised managements and the development of information systems should be strengthened.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the influence of perceptions and emotional attitudes on the public's willingness to organ donation and its path of promotion. Methods The mediation effect and structural equation models were established through the convenience sampling method and with ABC attitude model as the theoretical basis to analyze the influence of perceptions and emotional attitudes on the public's willingness to organ donation and the path of promotion. Results Among 4 565 investigated subjects, 621 subjects expressly stated that they were not willing to donate their organs after the death, 701 subjects were willing to donate their organs after the death, but only 259 investigated subjects signed the informed content card of organ donation. The differences in the subjects' willingness to donate their organs were statistically significant in terms of different genders, ages, religious beliefs, places of residence and educational degrees (all P < 0.05). The overall Cronbach's α coefficient of the questionnaire was 0.781, KMO=0.842, with good reliability and validity. In the structural equation model, the path coefficient of perceptions on the willingness to donation was 0.39, while that of attitudes on the willingness was 0.25. As such, perceptions and emotional attitudes had positive impacts on the willingness to donate the organs. The results of the mediation effect model indicated that attitudes played significant mediation effects in the causality relationship of perceptions on the willingness to donate organs, and the mediation effect value was 0.035(P < 0.01). The awareness degree of organ donation was the largest determinant to the perception factor, and the path coefficient on the willingness to donation was 0.20. The sense of social honor was the largest determinant to the attitude factor, and the path coefficient was 0.16. Conclusions Both perceptions and emotional attitudes positively impact the willingness to donate organs. The awareness degree of organ donation is the largest determinant to the perception factor, while the sense of social honor is the largest determinant to the attitude factor. To improve the public's perception level towards the organ donation and increase the public's sense of social honor towards organ donation contributes to the improvement of the public's willingness to donate organs.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Purpose The global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has opened opportunities for service providers and patients to continue with clinical services in certain extraordinary settings and circumstances. Telerehabilitation in the field of speech language pathology in India is still at its infancy, with a majority of the Speech Language Pathologists (SLP) accustomed with the conventional face-to-face system of service delivery. The present study aims to gather the knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) of SLPs in India regarding telerehabilitation services during the pandemic. Methods The study was conducted in three phases: phase I involved the development and validation of a questionnaire to explore the KAP of SLPs regarding telerehabilitation services. The items were framed based on a Likert rating scale (strongly agree, agree, neutral, disagree, and strongly disagree), yes-no-maybe format, open-ended, and multiple-choice format. Phase II involved data collection, while phase III involved data analysis. Descriptive statistics was done to derive the frequency and percentage for discrete variables and mean and SD for continuous variables. Results Many SLPs feel underprepared in their technical knowledge and skills needed for telerehabilitation. Furthermore, a majority of the SLPs also did report patients to be relatively lesser motivated and satisfied with tele practices due to issues that are discussed in the paper. Conclusion This study is an initial attempt to touch upon the fabric of telerehabilitation services delivered by SLPs of India. Future studies are directed to study the technical, professional, and personal issues encountered during telerehabilitation services specifically pertaining to specific communication disabilities.
