  • HOW MUCH DO WE KNOW THE CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE RISK FACTORS'

    • Authors: Nurcan AKGÜL GÜNDOĞDU ; Emine Selda GÜNDÜZ , Zeynep TEMEL MERT
      Abstract: Objective: The purpose of this study is to determine the knowledge levels about the cardiovascular disease risk factors of the adults living in a family health center area and also the factors affecting that knowledge level.Material and Methods: In this descriptive study, 512 individuals who met the acceptance criteria were accepted. The data were collected using the "descriptive form" and the "Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors Knowledge Level (CDRF-KL)" scale. IBM SPSS (v20) package program was used to evaluate the data. Percentage distributions, mean, t test on independent groups, Kruskall Wallis Variance Analysis, Mann Whitney U test and Spearman correlation analysis were used to estimate the results. p <0.05 was considered as statistically significant. Results: The average age of the individuals participating in the study was 40.14 ± 13.41, most of them are married and female, about half of them are primary school graduates. Half of the individuals' income is less than their expenses, their BMI average was 25.96 ± 4.37 and almost half of them are overweight. When the scale total mean scores were examined, CVD risk factor knowledge level was found to be less in individuals between the ages of 45-64, in women, in those whose income is less than expenses, who quit alcohol, who smoke occasionally, who has chronic diseases and use medicine and who has moderate stress perception.Conclusion: Individuals are moderately aware of CVD risk factors. The level of knowledge is influenced by age, gender, marital status, perception of economic status, chronic illness, alcohol use, smoking and stress. Training programs planned in this direction are needed.

  • STRUCTURAL EVALUATION OF FIREFIGHTING TRAINING WITH AIR RESCUE AND
           FIREFIGHTING UNIT IN TURKEY

    • Authors: Emrah GÖKKAYA ; Aynur KAYA
      Abstract: The word “itfaiye” derives from the Arabic word “itfa”, which means firefighting. “İtfaiyecilik” (Firefighting), on the other hand, is a risky profession with different definitions of tasks, especially firefighting, requiring devotion and courage, and is a discipline that needs professional training. So much so that fire services are the most common emergency organizations formed up in the world. This study discussed the changes shown by the fire service, which was established under the name of “Tulumbacı Ocağı” in the Ottoman Empire period only to extinguish fires and has been organized under different names until today, their duties other than firefighting, the prerequisites for entering the firefighting profession, and the vocational training of schools that provide firefighting training. Besides, the air rescue and firefighting (ARFF) unit, which is an important unit of the State Airports Authority (DHMİ), has been discussed in the study. When the literature is examined, it is seen that studies related to firefighting, which is a dangerous area due to working conditions, are limited. In this context, the study aims to contribute to the literature. The aim of this study is to reveal the developments in the fire service from the past to the present, to emphasize the importance of the fire service profession and to introduce the schools that provide fire service training. The basic proposal of the study is that the requirement to “graduate from schools providing fire service training” should be introduced with the necessary legal regulations among the conditions for appointment to fire service units.

  • AN OVERVIEW OF SIMULATION TRAINING IN HEALTH AREA

    • Authors: Özgür PALANCI ; Özge PALANCI AY
      Abstract: Simulation training that enables the use of innovative methods including Health Services in education and the development of new methods and conducting activities based on qualification, can help provide successful services in hospitals and other private institutions through the workforce of qualified, technological and well-equipped health personnel, the hospital. Health personnel on the field in working life face with the patient directly and it is the most important link in the health chain that provides accurate and effective service to the patient. In this context, simulation education proceeds with case solution, improves communication and decision making skills under changing conditions, it is cognitively comprehended thanks to the speed and correct approaches to work together, and theoretical information is analyzed in the debriefing section at the end of the scenario. It is thought that it will form the basis of a quality, professional healthcare system equipped with health education, as the trainer is a student-centered, interactive and active participant in the training process, where he/she is an observer and guide. The simulation training is now embedded in a number of healthcare vocational training and it appears that simulation-based assessments can be used effectively.

  • 5-YEAR RETROSPECTIVE ANALYSIS OF AMBULANCE DRIVING TECHNIQUES TRAINING FOR
           PARAMEDIC STUDENTS

    • Authors: Serap YILDIRIM ; Selda MERT , Murat PEKDEMİR
      Abstract: Introduction: The major aim of paramedic training is to provide quality patient care. However, the frequency of ambulance accidents constantly increases and constitutes one of the main occupational risks in our country and the world.Objective: The study aims to retrospectively evaluate the effectiveness of ambulance driving techniques training given to paramedic students.Materials and Methods: The sample consists of 178 paramedic students participating in an ambulance driving techniques training between 2015 and 2019 and responded to the questionnaire. The students were given a 4-day training, including safe ambulance driving knowledge and practice, and the data were collected using a questionnaire form applied before and after the training. Frequency, mean, Mann Whitney U test, Kruskal Wallis Variance Analysis, Wilcoxon t-test, McNemar chi-square analysis was used in the statistical evaluation of the data, and Spearman correlation analysis was performed to analyze the relationships between variables. Results: The study revealed that 34.8% of the students had increased self-confidence in ambulance driving, the stress caused by ambulance driving decreased in 27% of them, and the students’ knowledge levels of traffic rules increased by 31% after the training. While the ratio of students who were aware of their deficiencies about traffic rules was 1.6% before training, it increased up to 12.9% after training, thus students were given the opportunity to realize their lack of knowledge in ambulance driving.Conclusion: The ambulance driving techniques training and similar driving experience positively contribute to the students’ knowledge and practice, and this type of training needs to be widespread.
