  • Evaluation of the Relationship Between the Patient Safety Culture and
           Medical Error Attitudes of the Pediatric Nurses

    • Authors: Dilek ALEMDAR ; Gamze YILMAZ
      Abstract: Objectives: This study was conducted descriptively so as to determine therelationship between the patient security culture and medical error attitudesof the nurses. Methods: The population of the studywas conducted between the dates that the data were collected in the hospitals inthe eastern Turkey of 82 nurses working in children's services. The samplingselection method was not used in this study, but 68 nurses that were accessed betweenthe dates and that accepted to participate in the study voluntarily were includedin the sampling of the study. “Descriptive Information Form”, “Patient SecurityCulture Scale” (PSCS) and “Medical Error Attitude Scale” (MEAS), in which thesocio-demographic information of the nurses is assessed, were used as datacollection tools in the study.  Results:Nurses received an average score of 3.71±0.27 from PSCS, and an average scoreof 3.02±0.44 from MEAS. A significantrelationship was determined between the education status of the nurses andtheir PSCS total score (p<0.05). As a result of the correlation analysis itwas determined that there was a positively significant relationship between thePSCS score and MEAS scores of the nurses, and as their PSCS scores increased,their MEAS scored increased as well.   Conclusion:Evaluation of the current status by conducting regular measurements in regard to patient security in institutions and should be make improvements accordingly. Also, nurses should take responsibility in patient safety and improvement of patient safety culture should be the main priority of the institutions.

  • Usability of Mobile Health Application for Individuals with Type 2
           Diabetes Mellitus and Clinicians

    • Authors: Eren TİMURTAŞ ; Mine Gülden POLAT
      Abstract: Objective: Usability of technological devices is an important and relevant construct as mobile technologies are increasingly used to deliver healthcare products. Most accessible devices are smartphone and smartwatch but information on their usability is scarce. The aim of this study is to compare the usability of smartphone and smartwatch devices in delivering an exercise platform to individuals with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) among two focus groups: individuals with T2DM and clinicians.Methods: A total of 40 individuals with T2DM (focus group 1) and 20 clinicians (focus group 2) were recruited to use the platforms one week. Each focus group was randomly divided into: smartphone and smartwatch groups. Each participant was provided with a practice trial for a week before data collection. Usability of both devices was measured with System Usability Scale (SUS). Student t-test was used to compare the total and subscale scores of SUS between two devices in each focus group.Results: In focus group 1 and 2, the mean total scores of SUS were slightly higher in smartphone group (88,75 9,34 and 86,75 8,68 ) than smartwatch group (87,87 7.56 and 82,35 6,59) respectively. When compared to individual items, three items were statistically significant in focus group 1 and one in focus group 2 (p 0.05).Conclusion:This study demonstrates a high usability (SUS score>80,8) for both smartphone and smartwatch devices in individuals with T2DM and clinicians. When compared between devices for two groups, exercise platform delivered through smartphone performed better on usability than smartwatch for both individuals with T2DM and clinicians.

  • Treatment Adherence Levels and Factors Affecting Adherence in Patients
           Receiving Osteoporosis Treatment

    • Authors: Türkan PAŞALI KİLİT ; Kevser ONBAŞI , Filiz ÖZYİĞİT
      Abstract: Objective: Treatment adherence is regarded as an important factor in achieving optimal outcomes across many disease states. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the adherence of osteoporosis patients and determinate the factors affecting adherence.Methods: A total number of 150 patients with osteoporosis were included in the study. Demographic data, anthropometric measurements and laboratory results of the patients were recorded. In addition, the survey questions including patients' marital status, education levels, income status, smoking and alcohol consumption habits, exercise levels, dietary habits, fracture histories, menopausal ages, treatments they received, medication side effects and treatment adherences were asked by a face-to-face interview method.Results: The mean age of the 150 patients included in the study was 65.6±9.8 years. Ninety-four percent of the patients were female. Patients who received osteoporosis treatment with oral agents had poorer adherence to treatment than patients receiving subcutaneous or intravenous agents (p=0.003). Other factors had no effect on adherence.Conclusion: Treatment adherence, which is one of the concepts related to the principles of rational drug use, is an important part of treatment success. The choice of agents administered subcutaneously or intravenously in the treatment of osteoporosis will result in better adherence with treatment than oral agents.

  • Does Kinesiophobia Effect One Day Physical Activity Behaviour and
           Functionality of Young People with Ankylosing Spondylitis'

    • Authors: Gamze TOSUN AYDİN ; İlksan DEMİRBUKEN , Ebru KAYA MUTLU , Mine Gulden POLAT
      Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between kinesiophobia, physical activity behaviour and functionality in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS).Methods: This study included 57 participants (mean age, 30.8 ± 5.19 years) in 2 groups of AS and healthy controls. One day physical activity behaviour was evaluated with tri-axial accelerometer. Tri-axial accelerometer was recorded physical activity domains and intensities for 24 hours. Participants completed clinical questionnaires assessing pain, kinesophobia, disease activity, and functionality. Kinesiophobia and pain were quantified by the Tampa Scale for Kinesiophobia and Short-Form McGill Pain Questionnaire. Function and disease activity were rated by using the Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index, and Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Score.Results: There was no correlation between kinesiophobia and one day physical activity behaviour in AS patients group. There was a negative correlation between high physical activity level and disease activity(p<0.05, r:-.519) and there was a negative correlation between high and moderate physical activity levels, and functionality (p <0.05, r:-.555 r:-395, respectively).Conclusion: According to the results of this study showed that; there was a relationship between disease activity, functionality, and one day physical activity behaviour. On the other hand, there was not any relation between pain intensity, kinesophobia and data obtained from accelerometer. Further studies with larger sample size and longer time periods should be carried out to reveal physical activity behaviours and its related factors in AS patients who will survive with this disease for years.

  • Comparison of the Accuracy and Time Efficiency of Two Different digital
           Impressions of Single Tooth Implant Treatments

    • Authors: Muhammed ALIBRAHIM ; Yılmaz Umut ASLAN
      Abstract: Objective: Over the last decades, techniques and materials have evolved with the improvement in digital technology. Computer-aided impressions have been transforming the dental implant field with these developments. The aim of this in vivo study was to compare the accuracy and time efficiency between two intraoral scanning systems in single tooth implant treatment.Material and Method: 10 patients with single tooth bone level implant (Straumann, Basel, Switzerland) received one conventional impression with polyvinyl siloxane and three scans with 2 different intra-oral scanners (CEREC AC Omnicam and Straumann CARES IOS). The time required for the impressions was measured at this stage. The casts obtained from conventional impressions were scanned as the master model to evaluate accuracy. Digital impression files were analyzed using software (Geomagic Control). Independent Samples Test was performed for trueness and precision. One-way ANOVA was executed for time efficiency. Least significant difference test for post hoc comparison was conducted (p<0.05).Results: The differences between the two systems regarding trueness and precision were not statistically significant (P>0.05), but a statistically significant difference was found in the time efficiency (P<0.05). CEREC AC showed the lowest mean values in time measures.Conclusions: There was no difference regarding accuracy in the comparison between CEREC AC Omnicam and CARES. CEREC AC Omnicam was found to be superior in terms of time efficiency in comparison to CARES and conventional impressions.

  • Prevalence and Characteristics of Soft Tissue Calcifications in Cbct
           Images of Mandibular Region

    • Authors: Emine Şebnem KURŞUN ÇAKMAK ; Seval BAYRAK , Cemal ATAKAN
      Abstract: Objectives:The goal of the study is to evaluate the prevalence and characteristics of softtissue calcifications (STCs) detected in the mandibular region in CBCT images. Methods:242 (150 female, 92 male) mandibula CBCT images were evaluated in this study.Prevalence, anatomical location, pattern (bilateral or unilateral), size(mm),  number (single or multiple), age(<35, 35-50, >50) and gender tendency were recorded. Images wereevaluated in the axial, coronal and 3D reformated images. The Chi-square testwas used to test for differences of the STC groups and the percentagevalues.  Results: 88 patients (36.4%) had at least one STC inthe mandibular region. The mean age of the patients with STC was 58.3±11.06years. No gender predilection was stated in terms of the presence of STC. STCwas higher in patients over 50 years than the other age groups (p=0.00). Mostof the STCs were unilateral, above 3mm in size, single and located in thelingual aspect of the mandible. Conclusion:It is of vital importance for clinicians to knowcharacteristics of STCs and to detect STCs in early stages especially thoseconcerning systemic conditions and to prevent life-threatening consequences.

  • Maternal Anxiety Associated with Newborn Screening

    • Authors: Sümeyra ALAN ; Şule ALPAR ECEVİT
      Abstract: Objective: In this study, it was aimed to determine the anxiety levels of mothers associated with newborn hearing screening test and heel prick blood sampling.Methods: A randomized controlled trial of 112 mothers who applied for newborn screening in a public hospital were conducted. The mothers were divided into two groups depending on their baby's assigned group; hearing screening test group (HST group) or heel prick blood sampling group (HBS group). The study was completed with a total of 101 participants. Parental Information Form, Subjective Units of Distress Scale (SUDS), State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI-S, STAI-T) were used in data collection. Data analysis were performed by using descriptive statistics, Mann-Whitney U test, Kruskal Wallis test, Independent groups t test, Pearson and Spearman correlation.Results: In the HST and HBS groups, the score median of the SUDS was 5,0 (IQR: 4,0-7,0) and 5,0 (IQR: 4,0-7,0), the score average of the STAI-S was 39,8±6,7 and 41,3±7,6, and the score average of the STAI-T was 42,5±7,1 and 41,4±6,5, respectively. There were significant relationships between the mothers' scores of the SUDS, STAI-S and STAI-T.Conclusion: The mothers' anxiety associated with hearing screening test and heel prick blood sampling were higher than Spielberger’s female population. There was no difference between the anxiety of the mothers according to whether the screening test is interventional. In order to avoid problems associated with parental anxiety, it may be advisable to investigate appropriate methods to reduce the anxiety of mothers.

  • The Effect of Endocrinological Parameters on Sleep Quality, Life Quality,
           Depression and Anxiety Levels in Pregnancy

    • Authors: Filiz ÖZSOY ; Hatice YILMAZ DOĞRU , Ilhan Bahri DELIBAS , Asker Zeki ÖZSOY , Fazli DEMIRTURK
      Abstract: Objectives: Examining the relation between sleep quality, quality of life, depression and anxiety levels with some endocrinological parameters in pregnancy.Methods: The oral glucose loading test and thyroid function test results of the pregnant women who were in the 24-29th weeks of pregnancy were used in the study. Non-pregnant women, who were matched with the study group in terms of sociodemographic data, were also included in the study as the healthy control group. All participant completed a standardized sociodemographic data collection form and the following scales; Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), Pittsburg Sleep Quality Scale (PDCA), Quality of Life Scale (SF-36).Results: No significant differences were detected between the sociodemographic data of the participants except for the educational status and living area. As a result, statistically significant differences were detected between the “sleep latency” (p=0.016), “usual sleep activity” (p=0.004), “sleep disorder” (p=0.000) subcomponents compared to the control group. For SF-36, on the other hand, the results of the pregnant group in “physical function” (p=0.000), “physical role limitation” (p=0.002) and “pain” (p=0.000) sub-dimensions were worse than the control group. The Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) value was positively correlated with “sleep time” (r=0.233); the “fasting blood glucose” was positively correlated with “pain” sub-dimensions (r=0.497); and the “physical function” sub-dimension was negatively correlated (r=-0.192).Conclusion: Our data suggest that the depression and anxiety scores of the pregnant women were high, and life and sleep quality was impaired in certain sub-dimensions.

      Abstract: Objective:  This cross sectional study was performed to demonstrate the importance of clinical pharmacists’ participation in pediatric hematopoietic stem cell transplantation patient management with regards to the detection, prevention, and management of drug-related problems.Methods: The study was carried out from 1st October 2015 to 1st May 2016 in a pediatric bone marrow transplantation unit of a tertiary care hospital. The inpatients and outpatients between 0 to 18 years of age were included and the patients were monitored and evaluated for drug-related problems (interactions, side effects, preparation, and administration). A clinical pharmacist-in-training made recommendations to the physicians and the nurses on the problems that were identified.Results: Twenty inpatients and twenty-two outpatients were monitored during the study. In total, 245 problems were identified in the inpatients, 37.14 % of which were drug-related; 33 % of the drug-related problems were the side effects of cyclosporine. Eleven recommendations on drug-related problems were made to the physicians and six of them were for the problems identified in the inpatient services with regards to drug dosing and administration. Five recommendations regarding total parenteral nutrition, drug incompatibility, drug administration from the feeding tube, and drug side effects were made to the nurses. Twenty-nine information on the dosing, side effects, incompatibilities, administration, and preparation of the drugs, were given by the pharmacist to the physicians and the nurses.Conclusion: Clinical pharmacists’ participation will improve the detection and the management of drug-related problems in pediatric hematopoietic stem cell transplantation units in Turkey.

  • Update on the Evaluation of the Anti-Obesity Effect of Green Tea (Camellia
           sinensis)

    • Authors: Halima Tarassinga Abiba Tarassinga Abiba SULTANE ; Edgar Manuel CAMBAZA
      Abstract: Objective: Obesity is a worldwide rising risk factor for numerous incommunicable illnesses. The most common interventions have been ineffective from a public health perspective. Green tea (Camellia sinensis) seems to be an effective well-known alternative but there is a need to see the most updated and reliable information on the matter. The study aimed to verify how effective is green tea as reductor of human body mass index (BMI).Methods: This meta-analysis reviewed recent controlled randomized trials on the effect of catechin and caffeine in the BMI of adult male and female subjects. The analysis did not include studies including alternative therapies or drugs potentially affecting BMI. The studies presented the quantity of catechin and caffeine (mg). Body mass index and waist circumference were measured before and after the interventions. The trials lasted two to eight months, depending on the study designs.Results and conclusion: Five studies met the criteria for the current analysis. In one study, the subjects took oral capsules of green tea extract (379mg). Overall, daily doses of catechin varied from 208-1200mg, and caffeine from undetectable levels to 480mg (the tea products were either enriched, capsules or canned with known levels). All showed reduction in body weight, the average BMI reduction was 0.68 kg/m2, and waist circumference was 1,5cm. There was a direct relationship between the concentration of catechin and reduction of BMI, but the BMI appeared to drop to a certain threshold of “optimal” weight, close to values considered as normal weight by the World Health Organization (WHO). There were few cases suggesting abdominal discomfort, but there they did not require additional treatment or hospitalization. Green tea consistently showed ability to reduce weight to a less risky level for health. Yet, it is now necessary to develop dose-response models for its active compounds and clarify the dynamics of the dosage over time. Furthermore, green tea is perhaps more effective in synergy with well-known methods to maintain or reduce weight, such as balanced diets or physical exercise.

  • Investigation of the Relationship Between Nurses’ Burnout and
           Psychological Resilience Levels

    • Authors: Melike ERTEM ; Sevinc CAPA , Mehmet KARAKAS , Hulya ENSARI , Aysegul KOC
      Abstract: Objective: This descriptive and correlational study was performed to determine the relationship between resilience and burnout levels of nurses working in psychiatry clinics.Methods: The population of this correlational study comprised 70 nurses, 55 of which constituted the study sampling between February and May in 2018. Research data was collected by means of “Personal Information Form”, “Psychological Resilience Scale/PRS” and “Maslach Burnout Scale/MBS”.Results: “Devotion” subscale of PRS showed a strong statistically significant inverse relationship with “Emotional Burnout” subscale of MBS (r=-0.707; p=0.000) albeit a moderate statistically significant inverse relationship noted with both “Desensitization” and “Personal Success” subscales of MBS (p<0.05).Conclusion: The results of this study may help nurse managers and hospital administrators to have a better understanding of nurses’ burnout and resilience levels. Future studies on the determination of compassion fatigue, which is an expression of empathy fatigue against nurses in psychiatric clinics and particularly Community Mental Health Services, are highly recommended.

  • The Effects of Dressing up Preterm Infants After Tub Bathing on Moisture
           Loss: A Randomized Controlled Trial

    • Authors: Zehra KAN ÖNTÜRK ; Duygu GÖZEN
      Abstract: Objective: The skin of the preterm newborn plays an important role in adapting the newborn to the environment after birth. This was designed as a randomised controlled experimental trial in order to determine the effect of dressing after tub bathing on loss of skin moisture in healthy preterm infants.Methods: The population of the study consisted of the infants who were born between 33,0-36,6 weeks of gestation. Skin moisture (forehead, abdomen, back, arm, leg) and body temperature measurements of the infants before bathing, immediately after bathing, and 10, 20, 30, and 60th minutes after bathing were assessed.  Results: It was determined that while the moisture was kept and increased in the experimental group, moisture loss occurred in the control group. The infants in both groups had heat loss after the bathing. Conclusion: It was determined that the skin moisture and body temperature of the experimental group infants were affected positively.
