RESUMO

Background/Objective: COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in the current century. During the COVID-19 lockdown, most countries switched their education methods to e-learning. The use of different electronic devices for e-learning for long hours is associated with several musculoskeletal pain that varies based on the sitting position the students use during e-learning. The aim of our study is to examine the association between different body position used during the e-learning and the different body aches experienced by the students. We also aimed to examine if several types of behavioral modifications and/or exercise practices by the students might minimize body aches associated with e-learning. Method(s): The subjects of this study were students from An-Najah university in Palestine. 385 questionnaires were filled using Google forms questionnaire and all subjects were using e-learning due to COVID-19 pandemic. Result(s): Our study showed that a large percentage of participants experienced musculoskeletal pain during the use of electronic devices for e-learning. The location and severity of pain was correlated with the sitting position used during e-learning. Furthermore, behavioral changes during e-learning like taking breaks and changing sitting position minimized the experienced pain during e-learning but no significant decrease in pain was observed by engaging in several exercise practices. Conclusion(s): The university students that participated in this study had an increase in body aches during the e-learning process that is associated with their sitting position. Awareness programs should be lunched to university students to help them minimize this pain based on behavioral changes and proper exercise training during the e-learning.

RESUMO

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused a fresh shift in the global population today, requiring people to adjust their typical routines and lifestyles. In the last five years, electronic books (e-books) have become a popular reading and reference alternative, particularly for fiction (Jandri, P., et al). (2020). In the academic realm, however, e-books have not had the same level of success in terms of use and acceptability. It will take further research to determine why this is happening among academic users. Because the usage of e-books is new, it has an impact on library services. Because it is new, there is a need to improve library service quality. There are challenges in influencing user behavior in accessing e-content materials. The methodology and procedures used describe the different types of research paradigms and justify the reasons for using each in this study. Therefore, this paper discusses the influence of challenges in influencing user behavior in accessing e-content materials in terms of services in digital libraries in selected universities using questionnaires as a research tool to collect data through Survey Monkey application and Google forms. Structural Equation Model (SEM) - SmartPLS will be used in this study. The quantitative approach is used to measure factors influencing user behavior in accessing and using e-content among trainee students in Teachers' Training Institutes in Malaysia.

RESUMO

Objective: We aimed to evaluate the spread of COVID-19 among healthcare workers diagnosed with COVID-19 at the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic and to draw attention to the importance of the correct and effective use of personal protective equipment. Method(s): This is a descriptive, cross-sectional, retrospective study. The research universe consisted of healthcare workers and administrative and technical personnel working at a university hospital who were diagnosed with COVID-19 at the beginning of the pandemic. The sample consisted of 100 healthcare workers diagnosed with COVID-19 and agreed to participate in the study. Data were collected between 10 June-30 July 2020. The "Evaluation of the Transmission Status of Healthcare Workers Diagnosed with COVID-19 Questionnaire" questionnaire, which included questions about demographic and disease information, COVID-19 transmission, and personal protective equipment usage parameters, was used as the data collection tool. The questionnaire was filled face to face or by telephone calls by the researchers. Result(s): Of the participants, 41% stated that they had never worked in the COVID unit, 33% worked only on duty in the COVID unit, and 26% stated that they constantly worked in the COVID unit;32% had contact with a patient diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 14 days. Regarding the use of personal protective equip-ment, 51% stated that they did not have any problems, and 52% stated that they had not received any training. Conclusion(s): Frontline healthcare workers can be infected during the pandemic. Inadequacies in the use of personal protective equipment, omissions, failure to carry out systematic training and practices, and neglecting the use of protective equipment in social environments increase the risk of transmission.

RESUMO

Background/Purpose: Self-medication (SM) has many risks especially in the older people, due to the high probability of polypharmacy. In this study, we aimed to assess the prevalence of self-medication and to investigate associated factors in older people, who requested home vaccination in Istanbul. SM during SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic was also evaluated in the study. Method(s): This descriptive study was carried out on elderly adults who requested to receive COVID-19 vaccination service at home in a medium-sized district of Istanbul, Turkey between February 22 and March 19. Study data were collected by a questionnaire through face-to-face interviews in the mandatory waiting period after vaccination. Result(s): We observed that 48.7% of the older people used SM. The use of auxilary equipment, especially use of canes/crutches significantly increased the prevelance of SM. SM was significantly higher in the older people who forget drug use, confuse medication time, recommend drugs for others and keep unused/unfinished drugs at home. The most effective factor in choosing SM was that they had used it before. The most common reason for preffering SM was thought of the disease is mild. A 20% of the participants used SM to prevent COVID-19 pandemic. Vitamins (16.4%) were mostly used for SM during COVID-19 pandemic. Conclusion(s): This study shows that the older people had a high rate of self-medication during COVID-19 pandemic. We think that targeted health education and preventive initiatives may be benefical.

RESUMO

Introduction: The pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has produced dramatic changes in the learning environment for clinical practice in medical education, and the impact on medical students has been significant. However, few program evaluation studies involving professional identity, now emphasised in medical education, have compared current with pre-COVID-19 programs. Here, we compared the professional identity recognised by medical students in the years before and during COVID-19. Methods: Medical students who participated in clinical practice were evaluated using the Japanese version of the Professional Self-Identity Questionnaire (PSIQ), a 9-item inventory rated using 7-point Likert scales. They answered on the first day of a 4- week clinical practice module within a community-based medical education (CBME) program and at graduation in 2018-2019 (pre-COVID-19 pandemic) and in 2019-2020 (during-COVID-19 pandemic). We compared the mean difference in total PSIQ score of the 2019-2020 students to those of the 2018-2019 students as a historical cohort using an unpaired t-test. Results: Participants were 104 medical students in the 2018-2019 academic year and 92 in the 2019-2020 academic year. PSIQ was increased at graduation. Mean difference in total PSIQ score was statistically higher for the 2019-2020 students (13.5 ± 9.4) than for the 2018-2019 students (10.3 ± 8.1) (t =2.6, df =195, p = 0.01). Conclusion: Although clinical practice was restricted by COVID-19, this had some positive impact on the strengthening of professional identity recognised by medical students. This finding may have been influenced by the imprinting of professional norms and changes in society. [ FROM AUTHOR]

RESUMO

Background: During the two years of COVID-19 lockdown and its related restrictions, the level of physical activity has decreased among children. Considering the adverse effects of insufficient physical activity (PA) on the health of children and adolescents, this study was conducted with the aim of investigating the level of physical activity during the COVID-19 pandemic among children and adolescents aged 8-19 years, in Iran.Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted among 16,500 urban and rural students 8-19 year -old from 31 provinces across the country, during the COVID-19 pandemic in Iran. Multistage sampling was used to select the participants. Data was gathered in January 2022 using the Persian version of the PA Questionnaire (PAQ) for older children and adolescents, based on the WHO -Global School-based Student Health Survey (GSHS) questionnaire.Results: 14893 cases were included in the study. The result of this study showed that more than half of the participants had a medium level of PA, and 32.5 had a low level of PA and only 12.6% of the participants had a high level of PA. Males and those in the age group of 14 to 19 years had significantly higher levels of PA (P<0.05). The regression analysis showed that for a one-year increase in age, the PA score would decrease by 0.256 times (p=0.000). The mean PAQ score was significantly higher among children whose parents did not have a health-related occupation or were unemployed.Conclusion: Although the finding of this study showed controversial results considering the decrease in children's PA scores during the COVID-19 pandemic, it demonstrated a low PA level among Iranian children in general.

RESUMO

Introduction: Provision of pre-hospital care by emergency medical services (EMS) requires paying attention to self-care and patient care against possible infections. The present study was conducted with the aim of determining the level of self-care and patient care against COVID-19. Method(s): The present correlational, descriptive, analytical study was carried out on 301 EMS personnel in Iran. Data were collected using a demographic information form and questionnaires made by the researcher on the level of self-care and patient care against COVID-19. Result(s): The results showed that more than half of the participants (55%) were aged 27 to 34 years. Themajority of the participants had an experience of participating in self-care (88.7%) and patient care (83.7%) training courses against COVID-19. The overall score of self-care was 55.96 +/- 6.97 out of 72 and that of patient care was 26.86+/- 3.39 out of 32, both of which revealed a favorable level. However, in some questions, the mean score was lower than the optimal level. The lowest mean score among items related to self-care against COVID-19 was allocated to wearing protective clothing (1.77+/-1.19). Among items related to patient care against COVID-19, the lowest mean score was related to training the patient about hand hygine after touching contaminated equipment (2.83+/-1.08 out of 4). There was a positive (r=0.491) and significant correlation between self-care and patient care against COVID-19 (p=0.001) based on our findings. Conclusion(s): Although the general level of selfcare and patient care against COVID-19 was favorable, due to the undesired level of some domains, it seems necessary to implement corrective planning through periodical training and monitoring the performance of the personnel.

RESUMO

The paper aims to measure the ability of housing design in Palestine to respond to any emerging functions and needs and the ability to adapt to new and possible sudden lifestyle changes. Four different interior house types were analyzed, two refer to the traditional approach of the closed plan, and another two types refer to the modern approaches of the open plan in terms of adaptation to new needs. These needs are adaptability to work from home, flexibility to change, separate or merge functions, and the adaptability to respond to health issues like quarantine. The study adopts the method of architectural analysis and questionnaire to measure people's opinions about all types in terms of sudden functions. The study takes the COVID-19 pandemic conditions as a case study. The main finding of the study is establishing a relationship between style of housing spatial design and the ability for adapting sudden changes in lifestyle. It shows that the traditional designs adapt to most changing lifestyles successfully, the independent guest room was converted into an office or guaranteed room. Moreover, the modern open plan house design with a T shape of the day wing is the best choice for adapting to the post-COVID-19. © 2022 WITPress. All rights reserved.

RESUMO

The policy article aims to formulate a re-adaptation to the impact of COVID-19 that strengthens the social resilience of villages in a sustainable manner based on empirical findings. This article uses a sequential mixed model research design approach analysis with focus group discussion, and it is strengthened by data collected from 105 respondents chosen through random sampling techniques, online in-depth interviews, and group interviews in the villages where the article was conducted. The result showed that the village government was able to build a dialogue with villagers to find common understanding and build collective action to overcome the impact of COVID-19. Another finding is that the village government can realize real action in synergizing social protection policies from the government with the development of social security in rural communities. It was concluded that the experience of overcoming the impact of COVID-19 should be used as an innovation in the development mechanism of village governments in Indonesia. The innovation described in this article is known as re-adaptation. Disaster adaptation is designed and included in the village government's development planning mechanism document. The article has limitations because it does not examine existing regulations that could be used to expand innovative practices. © 2022 WITPress. All rights reserved.

RESUMO

There have been concerns globally as to whether taking COVID-19 vaccination is harmful or not. In this study, we conducted an online survey to measure the knowledge and attitude of people, first about COVID-19, and second about COVID-19 vaccination—various analyses such as descriptive statistics, logistic regression, and support vector regression with k-fold cross-validation. The support vector machine and tuned support vector machine suggest a better fit based on cross-validation error. The results show that immigration requirements significantly explain why an individual would accept the COVID-19 vaccine. This study suggests that people in authority should look into people's concerns regarding taking the COVID-19 vaccine and address them accordingly. The study aims to draw the attention of the people to the concern that surrounds taking COVID-19 vaccination and explored various statistical techniques to draw inference. © 2022 WITPress.

RESUMO

During the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic, studies came across the world concerning with health issues. Researches began to find the repercussions of the virus. The virus was found to be versatile as it changes its nature and targets the lungs of a person. Later, it was seen an astonishing massacre around the world due to the virus. Many people have lost their life but many more people are still suffering with bad psychological state. Researchers began to research on the nature virus but very few researches were made on the other side-effects of this pandemic. One such crucial subject to attend in contemporary world is the effect of COVID-19 on psychological state in general population. This side-effect may lead to raise an alarming situation in future that could result in more death cases. The proposed paper presents a study on the detection of stress and depression in people caused by the pandemic. The proposed methodology is based on perceived questionnaire method through which people's responses are recorded in the form of text. COVID victims have been interrogated against a set of questions and their responses are recorded. The methodology performs text mining of their responses that also include the people's reaction from social networking sites. The text processing of people's responses is done by natural language processing (NLP). NLP is used to interpret textural facts into meaningful segments that must be understandable to machine. The refined data has been transformed into PSS (perceived stress scale) scaling factor that ranges from 0 to 4 showing various level of stress. The proposed system utilized artificial intelligence in which na'́ive Bayes classifier, K-nearest neighbor (KNN), Decision tree and Random forest algorithms are applied to predict the emotional state of a person. The proposed system also uses data from social networking site for testing purpose. The model successfully shows a comparative study of such three classifiers for the classification of stress level into stress, anxiety and depression © 2022 SCPE

RESUMO

IntroductionThe coverage of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) immunization uptake has been impacted by the acceptance of regular vaccine uptake and, like many other vaccination attempts in the past, it also faces issues of vaccine hesitancy. Through this study, we hoped to assess the conspiracy theories and beliefs attached to the COVID-19 vaccination efforts in PakistanMethodsThis study was conducted among the general population of Pakistan, aged 16 and above, from April 29 to May 29, 2021. The data was collected through English and Urdu questionnaires by a method of convenient sampling. A total of 600 participants were asked to fill in 34 questions pertaining to vaccine hesitancy and conspiracies. We used the Modified Kuppuswamy Socioeconomic Scale, Kuppuswamy Socioeconomic Scale, Conspiracy Mentality Questionnaire (CMQ), and Vaccine Conspiracy Belief Scale (VCBS) as our questions.ResultsA total of 591 participants responded to our questionnaire. The majority were females (56.7%), had an undergraduate degree (41.5%), and belonged to the upper middle socioeconomic class (40%). Factors like occupation (p=0.001), education (p=0.001), socioeconomic status (p<0.001), any family member who contracted coronavirus (p=0.016), source of knowledge (p=0.002), and total monthly income (p<0.001) were found to be statistically significant. ConclusionThe findings of this study suggest that conspiracy theories and misinformation about vaccinations are prevalent in our region. They are influenced by propaganda and negative cultural values among the population To combat and restrict the spread of this problem, our study can provide useful data to develop more appropriate policy measures.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease-19) was the name given to a novel pneumonia outbreak that occurred in Wuhan (Hubei province, China) in December 2019. For patients undergoing or scheduled for radiation therapy, radiation oncology (RO) departments were required to adjust their management protocols to maintain their ability to provide optimal care. The present survey study assesses the change in the daily practices of Turkish radiation oncologists. METHODS An online questionnaire was developed in Google Forms and sent out to oncologists registered with the Turkish society for RO. A total of 98 radiation oncologists completed the online questionnaire after three reminders were sent to the recipients over the course of 1 week. RESULTS After the pandemic has started, 65% of radiation oncologists moved their wards and outpatient clinics to different hospital units, resulting in an approximate 70% decline in the delivery of patient services in RO. Since the beginning of the pandemic in Turkiye, 52% of radiation oncologists have not been assigned to services related to COVID-19. Around half of the radiation oncologists surveyed stated that they were shunned by the society due to fear of transmitting the COVID-19 infection. CONCLUSION Further studies are needed to steer the creation of new regulations related to radiation oncologists, to be applied in the event of such emergencies as the COVID-19 pandemic.

RESUMO

Background and Objectives: Pregnancy, an altered physiological state, is specifically vulnerable to psychological distress (PD), more so during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. This can impart detrimental consequences to both mother and child. This study assessed the magnitude of PD and associated factors among pregnant women in rural West Bengal. The proportion of pregnant women with COVID-19 symptomatology and its relationship with PD was also determined. Methods: This cross-sectional study was done among 130 pregnant women availing antenatal care in health centers during August-October 2020. Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-4) was used to assess PD and a 'Perception on COVID-19 Pandemic' (PCP) Scale was used to assess the perception of the COVID-19 pandemic (Cronbach's alpha = 0.75). Statistical analyses were done in SPSS Inc., SPSS for Windows, Chicago, USA. Results: The proportion of study participants with PD was 49.2%. Unsatisfactory antenatal care (AOR = 19.4, CI = 2.5-152.7), COVID-19 case within family/neighborhood (AOR = 6.3, CI = 1.2-34.9), strenuous spousal relationship (AOR = 7.3, CI = 1.1-50), increasing score in perceived susceptibility domain of PCP Scale (AOR = 1.3, CI = 1.1-1.6), and decreased daily sleep duration (AOR = 2.8, CI = 1.6-4.9) were found to be associated with PD. 38.5% of participants reported COVID-19 related symptoms. Conclusion: The magnitude of PD among pregnant women in the study area is high. Thus, proper counseling of pregnant mothers during antenatal visits by public health nursing personnel to alleviate fears about the pandemic would go a long way to reduce the negative impact of PD on mother and child. © 2022 Medical Journal of Dr. D.Y.
