Abstract : parenting a child with ASD is very demanding. the nature of the diagnosis, child behavior, sign and symptoms of ASD, financial burden and parental isolation putting parents at risk for developing PTSD while perceived social support might decrease their risks. The purposes of this study were to explore predictors of risk of PTSD among parents of child with ASD and checking the moderation effect of social support between gender and risk of PTSD. Quantitative cross-sectional descriptive – correlation design including 142 parents covering all centers in Amman was applied. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Checklist for Diagnostic Statistical Manual 5 (PCL-5), Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS) and socio-demographics checklist were used in this study. Parents of children with ASD were at high risk of PTSD. Being a mother, the lowest perceived social support, those who pay for the treatment, the longest time since diagnosis and severity of the diagnosis predicted higher parental risk of PTSD while perceived social support moderates the relationship between gender and risk of PTSD. Findings emerged from this study allow nurses to understand and priorities the reasons of PTSD and will help them to develop appropriate nursing care plans. Moreover, a supportive program to the parents, especially mothers is needed. This supportive program should include informational support, financial support and social support. The effect of these programs can be evaluated through interventional studies in the future.

Abstract : Seagrass is rich of marine resources and capable of producing secondary metabolites so that it can be used as functional food. Secondary metabolites that are generally produced by organisms play a role in self-defense from the environment or from the attack of other organisms including attached organisms/ epiphytes and prevent infection from pathogens and can be used as antioxidants. This study aims to analyze the content of bioactive compounds and the potential of antioxidant activity of Thalassia hemprichii extract. The examination of bioactive compounds is using phytochemical tests and examination of antioxidant activity is using the diphenylpicrylhydrazil (DPPH) method. Phytochemical test results showed that Thalassia hemprichii extract contained bioactive compounds in the form of flavonoids, saponins, tannins and polyphenols. The results of the antioxidant activity test of Thalassia hemprichii extract obtained IC50 values of 80.0331 indicating that Thalassia hemprichii extract has strong antioxidant activity. This research proves that Thalassia hemprichii contains bioactive compounds that have the potential to be antibacterial and antioxidant..

Abstract : The trauma is responsible for most of hospitalizations and deaths all over the world, emerging as a major public health problem. Within this panorama, facial trauma deserves a spotlight, once it has dramatic aesthetic and functional repercussions for the victim. This paper aims to present an epidemiological survey of facial trauma at Feira de Santana – Bahia – Brazil and its metropolitan region from 2015 to 2018. As well, intend to compare the different etiological pattern between public and private services. For this purpose, was conducted a cross-sectional study based on secondary data collected from patient files at Maxillofacial Surgery reference centers, on public and private practice, with a total of 360 files collected. On general survey 76,94% where men, most of target population were victim of motorcycle accidents (28,47%) and the mandible fracture were the most prevalent with 23,13% of cases. In comparison, at the public service the most prevalent etiology was the motorcycle accident with 44,76%,  followed by an expressive amount of gunshot wounds with 18,09%. At private sector, car accidents were at the top with 20,52% of cases, followed by falls from own height with 20%. When talking about fracture location, mandible fractures amounted 46,25% at the public hospital.  The zygoma fractures were the most prominent with 24,89% at private hospitals. Sensible differences were found when comparing the trauma etiology and fractures morbidity between the two sectors. It can suggest a relation between socioeconomic status and the injuries severity, once major traumas were found at public health care..

Abstract : Accreditation in health care system was found to affect patient safety, length of stay, quality of care and therefore was cost effective. However, no study has been conducted in Jordan to examine the impact of national health care accreditation programs on patient safety. The purpose of the study was to explore the impact of Jordanian national health care accreditation program on patient safety in terms of defining triggers and adverse events. A descriptive comparative study design was used. A questionnaire measuring triggers and adverse events was used for patients’ medical files (i.e. 360 files). Three accredited and three non accredited hospitals in Jordan. Patients in accredited hospitals had significantly lower length of stay compared to those in the non-accredited hospitals (M=3.62, SD=1.72 compared to M=4.08, SD=1.98); t (358) =-2.36, P<0.05. Additionally, number of triggers in the accredited hospitals was significantly higher than the number of triggers in non-accredited hospitals (M=1.70, SD=0.8 compared to M=1.13, SD=0.45); t (339.93) =2.79, P<0.01. Although number of triggers was higher in the accredited hospitals, number of events in the accredited hospitals was significantly lower than the reported events in non-accredited hospitals (M=0.36, SD=0.08 compared to M=0.48, SD=0.21); t (333.53) =-2.79, P<0.01. Indicators triggers were higher in accredited hospitals and events were lower which decreased the length of stay. The application of accreditation programs at Jordanian hospitals improve the care delivered to the patients and decrease the adverse events enhancing patients' safety..

Abstract : Community Acquired Clostridium difficile Infection (CA-CDI) is becoming increasingly significant. Water could be a source for CA-CDI. The conducted research aimed to evaluate the prevalence and antimicrobial susceptibility/resistance of Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) (homotypic synonym Clostridioides difficile) detected in water in Mansoura city, Egypt. Water samples were collected from many sources. Enrichment/selective cultures were used for isolation and identification of C. difficile. C. difficile was identified in samples collected from; water supply intake pipe (34.0%), waste water treatment (26.0%), house tap water (7.1%) and public swimming pool (1.0%). The majority (30/38) of C. difficile isolates were toxigenic. All isolates were sensetive to vancomycin. Variable degrees of resistance to metronidazole and clindamycin were detected. The study confirmed that water can be a source for C. difficile transmission and infection..
