  • The risk of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in Italian Highly
           Specialized Research Hospitals staff within two months of the pandemic
           declaration: an on-line survey

    • Authors: Sylvie HMJ Piacentini, Irene Tramacere, Sara Prioni
      Pages: 154 - 161
      Abstract: Background. The whole hospital system was stressed and at risk in the first phase of the pandemic. This study examined the prevalence of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in all hospital staff, medical and non-medical, within two months of the pandemic declaration. Survey concerned staff 4510 health workers of Italian Highly Specialized Research Hospitals.
      Method. Subjects were asked to complete an on-line self-reported questionnaire, the PTSD Checklist 5 (PCL-5) and subjective perception of safety related to personal protective equipment (PPE).
      Results. The sample included staff working in hospitals with or without COVID-19 patient admissions. Overall, 11.56% of the hospitals staff met the symptoms criteria for probable PTSD. The sample included 80.63% (3467) medical staff workers and 19.37% (833) non-medical staff workers. The 31.91% of participants worked in COVID-19 hospitals/wards. The prevalence of positive screening for PTSD symptoms in medical staff was 12.42% (426) and in non-medical staff, 8.59% (70). Among medical staff, anesthesiologists had a significant prevalence of PTSD (22.35%), followed by health care
      assistants/technicians (15.38%) and physicians (10.11%). Among non-medical staff, personnel involved in cleaning, catering, maintenance, security, and transportation, the symptoms of PTSD reached a rate of 12.24% and in administrative staff 8.47%. Risk factors associated with PTSD included working as an anesthesiologist, perceiving PPE as inadequate, and working in COVID-19 hospitals/wards.
      Conclusions. In the present study, as in other studies, the prevalence of PTSD symptoms among hospital workers was significatively higher than the lifetime prevalence of PTSD in the general population, showing the pandemic’s incredible impact.

  • First report of two Asian invasive mosquito species, Aedes japonicus and
           Aedes koreicus, in Piedmont, northwest Italy

    • Authors: Andrea Mosca, Mirko Francesco Perna, Matteo Giovannozzi, Paolo Roberto
      Pages: 162 - 165
      Abstract: Introduction. Aedes japonicus japonicus and Aedes koreicus are two invasive mosquitoes recently reported in various parts of Europe, including areas very close to Piedmont where, since 2012, specific tools have been implemented to allow the early detection of invasive mosquitoes, through the surveillance of the main points of entry.
      Results. Thanks to the regional surveillance system, Ae. j. japonicus was intercepted in Piedmont for the first time in 2019, in the northernmost part of the region and now it is reported in six provinces. Ae. koreicus was intercepted for the first time in 2012 in three provinces.
      Discussion and conclusion. The spread of these two invasive mosquitoes in Europe is still ongoing. Where Aedes albopictus is abundant, probably their presence goes undetected, therefore, it is crucial to begin surveillance early in the season. Due to their competence for several arboviruses and tolerance to the cold temperatures Ae. j. japonicus
      and Ae. koreicus represent a further concern for Public Health. A longer seasonal period for surveillance and response to mosquito-borne diseases, as well as a shift up of these activities to previously uncovered altitudes are indeed needed.

  • Blackflies (Simulium spp.) attacks on humans and animals in Rome and
           surrounding areas (Central Italy)

    • Authors: Federico Romiti, Elena lavinia Diaconu, Manuela Iurescia, Daniele Sagrafoli, Adele Magliano, Claudio De Liberato
      Pages: 166 - 171
      Abstract: Background. Due to their abundance in some environments, the blood-sucking habit and the involvement in the transmission of several diseases, blackflies of the genus Simulium (Diptera: Simuliidae) can be considered among the most annoying biting arthropods.
      Methods. Following repeated attacks to humans and animals, entomological investigations were carried out in green areas of Rome and surroundings. Site and period of attacks were reported, together with the human and animal reactions to the bites.
      Results. Four Simulium species have been identified through morphological or molecular analysis: Simulium intermedium, Simulium lineatum, Simulium lundstromi and Simulium ornatum (complex). Larval breeding sites were identified in small moats, where a high density of blackflies larvae and pupae was revealed.
      Conclusions. Being able to thrive in highly polluted water, even in few mm depth watercourses, some blackfly species are widely distributed in the area and their bites caused mild to severe reactions to humans and animals.

  • The use of concept maps as an assessment tool in students’ risk
           education about occupational safety and health

    • Authors: Andrea Caputo, Davide Monterosso, Eugenio Sorrentino
      Pages: 172 - 177
      Abstract: Given the relevance of students’ risk education about occupational safety and health (OSH), the need for reliable assessment tools for learning evaluation is widely advocated. However, multiple-choice tests or inventories show several limitations, including the emphasis on basic definitions instead of organized conceptual systems and passive tool to inspect how students actively organize and represent the acquired knowledge in line with the theory of meaningful learning. A concept map specifically developed in the field of risk education and its quantitative scoring protocol are here proposed. Then, a case study with a pre- post-test design is presented, including 611 upper school students who undertook an OSH-related risk educational course. The findings are briefly discussed and help identify the possible information we can get from concept maps in terms of problem-based learning.

  • Self-Awareness Multilevel Assessment Scale (SAMAS): psychometric analysis
           of inter-rater reliability

    • Authors: Umberto Bivona, Giulia Ferri, Maria De Luca, Susanna Lucatello, Marta Aloisi, Marianna Contrada, Paola Ciurli, Valentina Bandiera, Paola Lo Sterzo, Giorgio Lombardi, Rita Formisano, Alberto Costa
      Pages: 177 - 182
      Abstract: Background. Severe acquired brain injury (sABI) frequently causes impairment in selfawareness (ISA), leading to reduced patients’ compliance to treatment, worse functional outcome, and high caregiver distress. Self-awareness (SA) is a multilevel and complex function that, as such, requires a specific and effective assessment. To date, many tools are available to evaluate the declarative, but not emergent and anticipatory levels of awareness, therefore the Self-Awareness Multilevel Assessment Scale (SAMAS) was recently proposed. The new tool proved to be useful to assess SA at different levels across all domains of functioning (motor, cognitive, psycho-behavioural, etc.) because it measures not only the declarative SA, but also emergent and anticipatory levels of SA, thus overcoming some important limits of other current assessment methods.
      Aim. This study evaluated the inter-rater reliability (IRR) of the SAMAS.
      Methods. Four professionals blind to each other evaluated 12 patients with sABI. Each patient was rated by two professionals.
      Results. Inter-rater reliability was moderate-to-excellent, adding evidence in support of the use of SAMAS to specifically diagnose ISA after sABI.
      Conclusions. The SAMAS can help to better address neurorehabilitation, as it allows assessing ISA as early as possible, at all possible levels of awareness and functional domains.

  • Recognition of early warning signs and symptoms by caregivers, general
           practitioners and paediatricians – the first steps on the road to Autism
           Spectrum Disorder diagnosis

    • Authors: Magdalena Budisteanu, Florentina Linca, Lucia Emanuela Andrei, Laura Mateescu, Adelina Glangher, Doina Ioana, Emilia Severin, Sorin Riga, Florina Rad
      Pages: 183 - 191
      Abstract: Objective. To identify developmental symptoms reported at firsts doctor visits by parents of children later diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Design. Cohort study. Setting. The study was conducted in the Department of Psychiatry Research of “Prof. Dr. Alexandru Obregia” Clinical Psychiatry Hospital from Bucharest between September 2019 and May 2021. Patients. 105 cases: 82 boys and 23 girls, 100 children with autism, and 5 patients with Asperger’s syndrome.
      Intervention. ASD was diagnosed according to the DSM-5 criteria, ADOS-1 (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, 1st Edition) and/or ADI-R (Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised) tests scores; features reported by the parents for which they presented to the doctor for a diagnosis were taken into consideration. Main outcome measures. The age at first presentation to the doctor; the most common early signs reported by the parents of children with ASD.
      Results. The age at first presentation to the doctor in our group was between 9 months and 14 years. The most common early signs reported by parents were: delayed language development, deficits in understanding verbal instructions/indications, and hyperactivity and aggressivity. In the case of patients with Asperger’s syndrome, the reported features were hyperactivity and aggressivity, learning difficulties, and social interaction problems. Regression and delay in language development occurred more often in boys than in girls.
      Conclusions. Parents, as well as family doctors or paediatricians, should pay great attention to the children’s behaviour, alongside their cognitive and language development. Early detection is essential for early intervention and our results can be used to develop training programs for parents and paediatricians for early recognition of ASD.

  • Proportionate mortality among workers exposed to hardwood dust in Italy

    • Authors: Alberto Scarselli, Marisa Corfiati, Alessandro Marinaccio
      Pages: 197 - 203
      Abstract: Aims. The main aim of this study is to estimate the impact on workers’ health caused by hardwood dust exposure in selected industrial sectors in Italy.
      Methods. Proportionate mortality ratios (PMR) by cancer site were calculated by linking the information on occupational exposure to carcinogens from the Italian national registry (SIREP, 1996-2018) to the national mortality archives (ISTAT, 2005-2018), assuming a Poisson distribution of the data.
      Results. An elevated proportion of deaths from sino-nasal cancer was found in male exposed workers (PMR=4.25, CI 95%=1.37-13.23). Increased proportions of deaths were also found from stomach cancer in both genders (PMR=3.14, CI 95%=1.41-7.00 women; PMR=1.64, CI 95%=1.22-2.19 men).
      Conclusions. Although hardwood dust is a known human carcinogen, there are still many high-risk occupational exposure settings. Epidemiological surveillance and continuous monitoring of workers is highly recommended in order to ensure compliance with regulatory obligations and limit the burden of associated mortality causes.

      Pages: 204 - 212
      Abstract: During the second European Joint Action on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and Healthcare-Associated Infections (HCI) (EU-JAMRAI) annual meeting, the Evaluation Team elicited stakeholders’ opinions regarding the implementation of the National Strategies and Action Plans to fight AMR and HCI, the One Health integration and the EU-JAMRAI support to the national and EU authorities in two Focus Groups. This qualitative exercise contributed to identify criticalities and possible improvements in aspects such as political priorities, legislation/legal requirements, human and financial resources, and supervision in many health sectors to ensure effective implementation of the action plans. Stakeholders pointed out at the different speed of EU member states, in particular concerning the One Health integration in the plans. Finally, the Stakeholders strongly asked the EU-JAMRAI to reinforce the integration and dissemination of the best practices and results, to help policymakers at national and European levels in defining and implementing harmonized policies and actions against AMR and HCI.

    • Authors: Valentina M. Negrini, Davide Lonati, Alfio Pappalardo, Azzurra Schicchi, Valeria M. Petrolini, Lucia Bernasconi, Benedetta Brolli, Cristina Grazioli, Elena Alonzo, Carlo A. Locatelli
      Pages: 213 - 217
      Abstract: Introduction. Mushroom poisoning is an important cause of intoxication worldwide. The toxic mechanism remains frequently unknown and the diffusion of non-endemic species may cause the emergence of new syndromes. An example is the widespread of Chlorophyllum molybdites in Sicily.
      Case series. Pavia Poison Centre was recently involved in the management of 10 intoxications caused by the ingestion of Chlorophyllum molybdites, which was not considered part of the Italian mycological species. The clinical syndrome was characterized by severe gastrointestinal symptoms. In paediatric or vulnerable patients, it may bring to hypovolemic
      shock that necessitate intensive support. The possibly confusion with amatoxinscontaining mushrooms may complicate the management.
      Conclusions. Chlorophyllum molybdites is widespread on the oriental coast of Sicily and it could be confused with “parasol mushrooms”. Cooperation between emergency physicians, clinical toxicologist and mycologist, supported by improving of laboratory tests, is essential for the appropriate clinical management. Climate changes and migration flows can interfere with the diffusion of new species and the development of novel syndromes.
