While the infant mortality rate was 9.9 per thousand in 2020, in 2021, it increased by 24% to 12.3 per thousand. There was no evidence that the Covid-19 pandemic directly increased infant mortality.Conclusion: A significant portion of infant deaths are babies of mothers who had risky pregnancies. Therefore, all steps to protect maternal health will be the first and most effective way to reduce infant mortality.

      Abstract: Aim: The study was conducted to evaluate the delay in application of cutaneous leishmaniasis cases and the level of Health Literacy Assessment Scale scores in cutaneous leishmaniasis patients in Şanlıurfa.Materials and Methods: The study is a cross-sectional study. The dependent variable of the study is the delay in application for cutaneous leishmaniasis treatment. Results: The prevalence of delayed application to the treatment center was 20.0%. A statistically significant and positive correlation was found between the scale scores of the participants and their educational status.Conclusion: The level of delay in seeking treatment was high. The Health Literacy Assessment Scale provides a good indication of the level of health literacy in parallel with educational status and is an important tool for determining the level of health literacy in the Şanlıurfa region.

    • Authors: Fatma ERDEO; Aysun YEŞİLTAŞ
      Abstract: Aim: This study was conducted to investigate the reasons for choosing hospitals, which have an important role in healthcare providers, and to determine whether the reasons for choosing hospitals differ according to the descriptive characteristics of the participants. Materials and Methods: The population of the descriptive study consists of disabled individuals. Independent sample t-test and ANOVA test were used in the analysis of the data, and post hoc tests were applied to determine the differences between the groups.Results: It was determined that 61.6% of the participants are male, 54.4% are married, 51.2% of them were physically disabled and 38.4% of them were disabled for 21 years or more. In addition, it was determined that 56.8% of the participants applied to a hospital 1-4 times in the last year, 44% preferred a public hospital in general, 86.4% give importance to location in choosing a hospital.Conclusion: As a result of the study, while the service quality and cost to the consumer dimensions are in the first place in the hospital preference; recognition and physical element dimensions were seen as less important. It was determined that the most important factor in choosing a hospital is hygiene and cleanliness and the least effective factor was the sign/logo/colors of the hospital.

           (midACE) tool: Validity and reliability study

    • Authors: Sibel İÇKE; Emine Serap ÇAĞAN, Rabia ETKİ GENÇ
      Abstract: Aim: To conduct the Turkish validity and reliability study of the Midwifery Academics in Clinical Environment Tool and to make Turkish version of the tool available.Materials and Methods: It’s a methodological type of research. In the research, 163 midwifery students were reached, and “Individual Identification Form” and “The Midwifery Academics In Clinical Environment Tool” were used as data collection tools. Results: According to the results of the Confirmatory Factor Analysis, it was determined that the structural equation model of the tool was significant at the p=0.000 level and that the 10 items constituting the tool were related to the tool structure with two factors. The Kuder Richardson-20 coefficient of the tool was found to be 0.886 and it was determined to be reliable. The lowest factor load value of the tool was 0.363, the highest value was 0.732.Conclusion: The tool has high reliability and validity in measuring midwifery students’ perceptions of the academic role of midwives on clinical learning and the development of professional knowledge, skills and clinical competence.
