      Abstract: This quasi experimental research aimed to examine effectiveness of physical therapy conjugated with shoulder wheel Exercise among patients with frozen shoulders. Thirty patients of Phakdie Chumphol hospital, Chaiyaphum province were recruited in this study. The pain score questionnaire was used for pain assessment and the goniometer was employed to measure degree of the shoulder movement. Data were collected 5 times: before engaging in the programme and four times (once a week for four weeks) after joining the programme. Data were analysed by repeated measure ANOVA. The average pain score of the patients before starting the programme was 7.83 (95%CI: 7.51, 8.15). After participating in the programme for four weeks, the average score was decreased to 0.73 (95%CI: 0.41, 1.05). The average degree of shoulder movement increased from 130.30 (95%CI: 125.36, 135.24) before joining the programme to 176.67 (95%CI: 171.73, 181.60) after four-week programme participation. The pain and the degree of shoulder movement before and after engaging in programme were statistically significant, respectively. Physical therapy and exercise with the shoulder wheel can effectively reduce pain and successfully increase shoulder movement among patients with frozen shoulder. This study suggested that this conjugated programme could be an alternative option for shoulder pain treatment, and it should be promoted for patients’ self-care.

      Abstract: This descriptive study aimed to study health problems and association between working behaviors and working conditions and also between threats of working and health problems of 110 agriculture Informal workers. Data were collected by using questionnaires and analyzed by frequency, percentage, mean, median, standard deviation, interquartile range, minimum, maximum and also Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient and Spearman Correlation Coefficient. The results found that most of workers had health problems from their working at low level (72.7%) which their health problems included low back pain and waist pain (78.3%), tiredness from heat (70.9%) and hands, wrists, fingers pain (67.3%). The correlation analysis found that behavioral health and working conditions of the participants was negatively correlated at moderate level to health problems from working with statistical significance (rs = -0.35, p-value<0.001). The threats of physical functioning, chemical and biological aspects of ergonomics had positive correlation at moderate level to health problems from working with statistical significance (rs = 0.48, p-value<0.001; rs = 0.45, pvalue< 0.001; rs = 0.39, p-value<0.001 and rs = 0.48, p-value<0.001, respectively). Regarding the psychosocial threats, there was a positive correlation at low level with health problems from working with statistical significance (r= 0.19, p-value = 0.04). This study suggests that health surveillance, caring of occupational health for reducing risks of illness and injury should be concerned in order to improve quality of the work among working farmers.

      Abstract: This research aimed to: 1) develop learning course of Gagne’s model with Blended learning for Emergency medical technician students in the topics of mother and neonatal care in normal and Emergency delivery; 2) compare achievements of students’ learning; and 3) assess the satisfaction of learning in Gagne’ s model with Blended learning. The research design was divided into two phases: 1) model development; and 2) model validation of the Gagne’s model with Blended learning. The first phase used survey study and documentary analysis. In this phase, the samples included 4 Emergency medical technician instructors and 30 Emergency medical technician students in the academic year of 2017. The results of this phase found that the instructors mostly used “Lecture and Handout” as the major teaching materials for teaching. The second phase was model validation of the Gagne’s model with Blended learning, including two steps, step one: internal validation checked by 3 experts (content, curriculum & instruction and evaluation); and step two: external validation (index of Item objective (IOC)=0.75 and reliability=0.82) conducted by using action research in one group pre-posttest design. This phase was conducted in 30 students who enrolled in the first semester of the academic year of 2018 (September – December 2018). The research instruments included pre-posttest assessments and questionnaires. The statistics used in analysis were percentage, mean, standard deviation (S.D.) and Paired t-test. The results revealed that: 1) the development of Gagne’s model with Blended learning in the topic mother and neonatal care in normal and Emergency delivery consisted of five main learning components, including principle, objective, content, process of learning (divided into two steps: preparation of teaching and implementation of teaching covering 9 steps of Gagne’ s model) and evaluation; 2) learner’ s learning post-test achievements were greatly improved than pre-test indicated by mean difference 4.89 (95% CI: 4.33-5.46) and statistical significance (p<0.001); and 3). the students’ satisfaction of developed teaching course was at a high level.

      Abstract: The study of the development of synergetic outpatient services system to reduce the incidence of outpatient services was carried out in the outpatient department at Nakornping Hospital, Chiang Mai Province. This study aimed to develop a synergetic model of outpatient services in reducing the incidence of cardiopulmonary arrest at Outpatient Department. The Deming cycle circuit for developing the system in conjunction with a thematic analysis was employed in this study. In addition, the cardiac risk assessments for patient arrest by implementing procedures to reduce the incidence of cardiac arrest were used in this study. Participants consisted of the head of the outpatient department, nurses and outpatient care workers. Research tools included 1) group discussion and brainstorming sessions and 2) the risk assessment tool for respiratory arrest and cardiac arrest. The Likelihood ratios (LRs) were applied. The results revealed that 1) the Outpatient Service Model to reduce incidence of respiratory arrest and cardiac arrest at Nakornping Hospital, Chiang Mai province involved patient observing from the beginning of the service, zoning of risk patients, alertness of health staff in service, collaboration to assess and acceptance of participation and 2) the statistical analysis for evaluation accuracy or reliability of the risk assessment tool was considered by Likelihood ratio of positive at 11.59. The result shown the patients were evaluated by the assessment form had at least one symptom referred to the signs of cardiac arrest. The prediction is able to increase the chance of being as a crisis patient at 11.59 times compared to before the pre-test probability. While, likelihood ratio of negative test, the patients without symptoms may reduce the chance of becoming a critical patient to 0.52 times compared to before the assessment. According to the area under the ROC curve (AUC), it indicated that the assessment model can accurately predict the occurrence of the crisis of patients at 73.12 percent.
