Islamic religious leaders (IRLs) have the potential to influence health education, health promotion, and positive health outcomes among their own communities. This study aims to examine the role and effectiveness of Arab Muslim religious leaders, in Israel, as social agents for change on health-related issues, focusing on reduction in infant mortality, prematurity, and congenital malformations attributed to consanguineous marriage. A self-administrated questionnaire was distributed to 127 IRLs, in 2012, to gain insights into practice, attitudes, and perceptions of IRLs toward their role as social agents for change on health-related issues...

The aim of the project is a cost analysis of 2 different strategies "train-the-trainer-seminar" (ttt-seminar) and "implementation guideline" (ig) in the implementation of a standardised patient education program in the inpatient rehabilitation of patients with chronic back pain. The implementation strategies were assigned by chance to 10 rehabilitation clinics. Expenditure of time was evaluated by questionnaire. Additionally materials and travel expenses were calculated. The total implementation costs accounted 4 582 € for the ttt-seminar and were about one third (35%) higher than the costs for the ig-strategy...

A novel peer-led communication seminar for medical students and for students of the Interprofessional Health Care B.Sc. degree programme at the Medical Faculty of Heidelberg is currently being developed to address the increasing need for interprofessional collaborative competencies in health care professionals. The core elements of this course include role plays in interprofessional communication situations, patient-centred professional practice, and reflections on underlying attitudes. Each seminar will be conducted by a team of two senior students from both undergraduate programmes, practising their new roles as interprofessional tutors and, at the same time, serving as competent role models for interprofessional collaboration...

During the past decade, major advances have been made in the accurate diagnosis of severe cutaneous adverse reactions (SCARs) to drugs, management of their manifestations, and identification of their pathogenetic mechanisms and at-risk populations. Early recognition and diagnosis of SCARs are key in the identification of culprit drugs. SCARS are potentially life threatening, and associated with various clinical patterns and morbidity during the acute stage of Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis, drug reactions with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms, and acute generalised exanthematous pustulosis...

The aim of the study was to verify whether a new hybrid simulator has the potential to measure skill improvement in young, less experienced gastroenterological surgeons. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included 12 surgeons (median age, 29 (27-38)] years; 11 men (91...

On March 11, 2013, the Great East Japan Earthquake (magnitude 9) hit the northern part of Japan (Tohoku), killing more than 15 000 people and leaving long-lasting scars, including psychological damage among evacuees, some of whom were health professionals. Little is known about meditation efficacy on disaster-affected health professionals. The present study investigated the effects of breathing-based meditation on seminar participants who were health professionals who had survived the earthquake.

INTRODUCTION: Theatre models in medical education have been used worldwide in order to train medical students and graduates in managing various situations. However, the literature reports little regarding its appeal to trainees. We conducted a medical seminar, entitled Emergency Cases School, which employed such techniques.

India faces major environmental challenges associated with waste generation and inadequate waste collection, transport, treatment and disposal. Current systems in India cannot cope with the volumes of waste generated by an increasing urban population, and this impacts on the environment and public health. The challenges and barriers are significant, but so are the opportunities. This paper reports on an international seminar on 'Sustainable solid waste management for cities: opportunities in South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) countries' organized by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research-National Environmental Engineering Research Institute and the Royal Society...

AIM: Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a blood-borne infectious disease. It is one of the most common causes of end-stage liver disease, including cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Healthcare professionals, including medical and dental students, are at a high risk of acquiring this infection. The aim of this study was to compare and contrast the knowledge and attitudes toward HBV infection amongst doctors, dentists, nurses, and undergraduate final year medical and dental students. SUBJECTS AND METHOD: A cross-sectional study was carried out on a sample size of 381 medical professionals, which included doctors (59), dentists (77), nurses (71), final year medical students (126), and final year dental students (48) at Combined Military Hospital Lahore Medical College and Institute of Dentistry (CMH LMC)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Residents must balance patient care and the ongoing acquisition of medical knowledge. With increasing clinical responsibilities and patient overload, medical training is often left aside. In 2010, we designed and implemented a training course in neonatology and pediatric emergency medicine for residents in pediatrics, in order to improve their medical education. The course was made of didactic sessions and several simulation-based seminars for each year of residency...
