Abstract : Pressure ulcer (PU) is one of the most common health problems worldwide. Pressure ulcer is a painful but generally preventable complication, and its management is a nursing practice. Purposes: this study was aimed to assess the nurses’ level of knowledge about PU management, and to measure the effects of demographic characteristics and hospital departments. This study was aimed to assess the nurses’ level of knowledge about PU management, and to measure the effects of demographic characteristics and hospital departments. A descriptive cross-sectional used Pieper PU Knowledge (2010) survey has been accomplished by 347 nurses who were picked from critical units. Above half of the nurses in Jordan (53.6%) had low level of knowledge management. Training courses, hospital policy, using assessment scale have significant different effects on knowledge level. Nurses’ knowledge of PU management needs to be improved. Cultivating the knowledge will be contributing to decreasing the patient burden.

Abstract : Obesity is more common in middle age especially after menopause because of hormonal imbalance and it is also followed by estrogen depletion affecting the pelvic floor muscle. Obesity is associated with functional limitation in muscle performance such as mobility, strength, and balance and reduced functional performance and further may lead to functional disability if it is not treated with appropriate measures at a specific duration. Hence, this study aims to know the effect of stabilization and strengthening of the core and pelvic floor muscles among obese postmenopausal women. A comparative study was done for 50 post-menopausal females using a convenient sampling method from Thiruvarur were chosen. They were then divided into two groups, Group A(N=25): Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation of core and pelvic floor muscles. Group B(N=25): Swiss ball training of core and pelvic floor muscles and followed up for 12 weeks. The pre-test and post-test values were assessed for One minute sit-up test- Core muscle & Pelvic floor distress inventory [PFDI-20]- Pelvic floor muscles (urinary distress inventory) There was significant difference in the One-minute sit-up test- Core muscle & Pelvic floor distress inventory [PFDI-20]- Pelvic floor muscles (urinary distress inventory) between 2 groups with p<0.05 in improving quality of life. A (PNF) had a better prognosis than the group -B (SWIS BALL) in terms of 1 min sit – up and PFDI scores. Hence PNF exercises play a key role in stabilization and strengthening of the core and pelvic floor muscles among obese postmenopausal women.

Abstract : Breast cancer is the commonest cause of cancer-related death in women worldwide. Amplification or over-expression of the ERBB2 (HER/neu) gene occurs in approximately 15-30% of breast cancer cases and it is strongly associated with an increased disease recurrence and a poor prognosis. Determination of HER2/neu status is crucial in the treatment plan as that positive cases will respond to trastuzumab therapy. It has been used to test for HER2/neu by immunohistochemistry as a first step and then to study only the equivocal positive cases (score 2+) by in situ hybridization technique. The aim of our study is to compare between immunohistochemistry and silver in situ hybridization (SISH) in the assessment of human epidermal growth factor (HER2/neu) receptors status among breast cancer patients. A cross-sectional study was conducted at The Medical City in Baghdad, from October 2016 to April 2017, where formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tumor tissue from 52 female patients (aged 33 to 71 years) with the diagnosis of breast cancer has been included in this study for the evaluation of human epidermal growth factor (HER2/neu) protein overexpression and gene amplification by immunohistochemistry and silver in situ hybridization (SISH) method respectively. Baseline data about patients were obtained from their hospital records. The distribution of human epidermal growth factor (HER2/neu) protein overexpression by immunohistochemistry showed that the (+2) score/equivocally positive was seen in 24 cases, which comprise the largest number of cases in this study (46.15%). Ten cases (19.23%) for each of the scores 0/negative and +1/negative were present, while (+3) score/positive was the smallest group with only 8 cases (15.38% of cases). All results of SISH were negative in the category of (0 score/negative). On the contrary, all the 8 cases in (+3 score/positive) category were showing positive SISH results. Category (+1 score/negative) HER2 showed two cases (20%) with a positive SISH result, while that of (+2 score/equivocal positive) showed 8 positive cases (about 33.33%). For the detection of HER2/neu protein overexpression and gene amplification, immunohistochemistry (IHC) and in-situ hybridization (ISH) are the recommended techniques, with high concordance between the two techniques, however; performance of silver in situ hybridization in assessment of HER2/neu gene status in all cases of invasive breast carcinoma is recommended as significant number of negative cases by immunohistochemistry showed positive amplification by in situ hybridization and can be treated with anti-HER2 targeted treatments.

Abstract : The article reported the effects of the psychologically traumatized self-esteem of children living in incomplete families. Assessing by 336 parents who had divorced or lived in single families, the Self-Esteem Scale of Toulouse was used to measure the self-esteem of children with psychological trauma in incomplete families and find the correlation between the five selves in the self-esteem. The results showed that there is difference in the self-esteem of “Physical Self”, “Academic – Future Self”, “Emotional Self”, “Family Self”, and “Social Self” between three groups of children with “no psychological trauma”, “children at the boundary state” and “children with psychological trauma in incomplete families.” With both positive and negative correlation among the five selves in the self-esteem of children who had psychological trauma caused living in the incomplete family, it could be provided some mental support (psychotherapies) for each traumatized self to maintain stable mental health for children in Vietnam.

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.
