Abstract : Most often assessing students' performance offers meaningful learning experiences to educators who take part in this process as well as for students. The main objective of the current survey was to investigate university's educators' attitudes towards using rubrics in assessing students' performance. This was a cross-sectional, non-experimental research design that carried out on a representative sample of male and female university teaching staff at Najran University, during the period from January, 2019 to October, 2019. By adopting a purposive sampling technique, a total of 146 faculty members from two major studying fields (medical & non-medical) had been recruited to participate in the current study. A structured self-administered online questionnaire was utilized for collecting data. The findings revealed that the majority (60%) of the respondents have positive attitudes towards using rubrics as tools for assessing the students' performance. Additionally, the results show that there were no significant differences among faculty teachers attributed to their academic titles (P-value= 0.514) as well as to their years of experience (P-value =0.668). In contrast, a significant statistical difference between faculty members attributed to their gender (P-value = 0.001*) as well as to their department affiliation (P-value = 017*) in favor for the medical staff respectively. The key findings show that rubrics make the assessment process more valid and reliable; therefore, would be significant tools for assessing students' performance as well as the possibility to facilitate valid judgment of complex competencies.

Abstract : Compassion satisfaction (CS)is considered one of the positive effects on quality of life. While Burnout (BO) and Compassion fatigue (CF) are considered from the negative effects of working in the medical field. This study predicted the CS from Burnout (BO) and Compassion fatigue and demographic characteristic among nurses and midwives in gynecological and obstetric units in Jordan. Descriptive, correlational, cross-sectional study using a convenience sample for 105 nurses and midwives from gynecological and obstetric units from three hospitals in Jordan. By answering the professional quality of life scale, version 5 (ProQOL-V scale) and demographical characteristic sheet. 12.8 % of the Compassion satisfaction levels might be predicted by the Burnout level. Burnout, Compassion fatigue, and Compassion satisfaction were at an average level (47.6%), (42.9%) and (46.7%) of the participants respectively. There was a positive relationship between levels of Burnout and Compassion fatigue, and the negative relationship between levels of Burnout and Compassion satisfaction. Marital status, educational level, health sector, and work shift-type had had a significant correlation with Burnout, Compassion fatigue and Compassion satisfaction. The average levels of Burnout, Compassion fatigue and Compassion satisfaction for nurses and midwives in gynecological and obstetric units are considered similar to other hospital units. Predictors of compassion satisfaction are highlighted for the nursing administrators to give more attention to these factors.

Abstract : Multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) represents a major public health problem on a global scale so the aim of this study was to determine the association of Interleukin-10 (IL-10) rs.1800896 and Interferon-Gamma (IFN-γ) rs.2430561 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) with MDR-TB. 60 tuberculosis patients (30 patients with and 30 patients without MDR-TB) and 30 healthy subjects as controls participated in this study. Serum IL-10 and IFN-γ levels were measured by ELISA. SNPs of IL-10 –rs.1800896 and IFN-γ rs.2430561 genes were detected using allele-specific amplification. IL-10 serum level was significantly higher in TB patients with MDR (57.3±14.8 pg/l) than TB patients without MDR (41.5±8.4 pg/l). Serum IFN-γ was significantly lower among TB patients with MDR (41.7±15.8 pg/l) compared to TB patients without MDR (83.7±25.05 pg/l). The AA genotype of IL-10 rs.1800896 and TT genotype of IFN-γ was significantly higher in the control group than in patient groups. Also The AA genotype of IFN-γ rs.2430561 was significantly higher in patient with MDR than in patient without MDR-TB. Regarding IL-10 GG and AG genotypes was considered risk from MDR TB (OR=11.54 and 4.1 for GG and AG respectively). Regarding INF-γ TT and AT genotypes considered protective for MDR TB (OR=0.09 and 0.17 for TT and AT respectively).

Abstract : To identify the learning style of our students for developing strategies of learning. This is a quantitative study. The method used to collect data is the questionnaire, which was distributed electronically and manually to undergraduate students. The number of the participants were 194 (77.6%) out of 250: Medicine; 60 (30.9 %), Nursing; 90 (46.4%) and Radiology; 44 (22.7 %). The data were analyzed using SPSS version 20. All analyses were performed using the descriptive and correlation probabilities, P <0.01 (2-sided) was considered to indicate statistical significance. A scores of the learning styles, medical students; activists 11 (22 %), reflector 16 (32%), theorist 15 (30 %) and pragmatist 14.5 (29 %). The nursing students; activists 15 (30 %), reflector 17 (34 %), theorist 16 (32%) and pragmatist 15 (30 %). The radiology students; activists 13.5 (27 %), reflector 16 (32%), theorist 13 (26%) and pragmatist 14 (28 %). The strength of association of items: activists with reflector r = 0.455, P =(0.000)> 0.01, activists with theorist; r = 0.483, P = (0.000) >0.01, activists with pragmatist; r = 0.618, P = (0.000) > 0.01, Reflector with theorist; r = 0.677, P = (0.000) < 0.01, reflector with pragmatist; r = 0.665, P = (0.000) > 0.01 and theorist with pragmatist; r = 0.684, P = (0.000) > 0.01. In this study, the students have different learning styles and learn differently and significant correlation between learning styles and this shows the skills of our students in gaining knowledge.

Abstract : Bangladesh is a high Tuberculosis (TB) burden country particularly due to the burden of drug-resistant TB. Smoking increases the risk of relapses of TB, which remains to be explored in the context of Bangladesh. This case-control study was conducted in two tertiary level hospitals in Dhaka City to determine the association between smoking habit and relapse tuberculosis (TB). The study population was the registered adult TB patients who got complete treatment within 2-5 years. Relapse and non-relapse TB cases are listed serially in the hospital record books. The relapse cases were selected randomly as case group and age-matched (±2 years) with the respondent of the case group, cured patients were included as control groups. A total of 170 respondents in each case and control groups were selected with 80% power and assuming 14% differences between cases and controls. The selected respondents who visited the respective hospitals on the scheduled day were interviewed face to face for data collection. The mean age of the participants was 39.7±11.56 years. Significantly (χ2=20.767; p=0.000) a higher proportion of the relapse cases were found among the respondents who got complete TB treatment 3 years before in comparison to that of the control group. Family size more than five, education of secondary level, two earning members in the family, past smoker, smoked more than 10 cigarettes per day and exposure to second-hand smoking were found to be significantly associated with a higher proportion of relapse cases. Regression analysis revealed that exposure to second-hand smoking and past smokers was 2.4 and 2.0 times respectively more likely to develop relapse TB. Thus, this study concluded that past smoking habit and exposure to second-hand smoking had the strongest likelihood of developing more TB relapse cases.
