Abstract : Self-esteem is affected by many factors and it is instrumental in numerous broader psychosocial outcomes for children and adolescents, with low self-esteem having negative impacts. The objective of the paper is to measure self-esteem and examine its predictors among school-aged students in Jordan. The methods of the paper is Ten schools using simple random sample were included. Students answered the Arabic Version of Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (ARSES) and Demographic Data and Characteristics Checklist. Almost half of participants were males, with a mean age of 14.38 years, mean weight of 57.39 kg, mean height of 164.19 cm, mean number of siblings of 1.41, and mean self-esteem ARSES score of 23.07. Significantly higher self-esteem was reported by male students, and students studying the international (as opposed to national) program of study. Regression model showed that increased number of siblings, increased height, and increased age predicted increased self-esteem, while increased weight predicted decreased self-esteem. Being a male student and studying at international program predicted an increase in students’ self-esteem. Academic performance did not predict a change in self-esteem. Conclusion: School students at this age were vulnerable to low self-esteem, and their weight was found to be strongest predictor of self-esteem. Therefore, schools should emphasize physical activity, healthy eating habits, and weight management awareness for their students..

Abstract : Background: Handover is a daily nursing tasks aims to transfer of the responsibility of the care. The insufficiencies in this task are associated with increasing adverse outcome and influence patient safety. Particularly, in countries do not have standardized handover protocol. Objective: To determine the compliance rate with standardized bedside clinical handover and to identify factors contributing to inadequate nursing bedside handover in intensive care units in Jordan. Methods: An observational study design was used two months after implementing a training program. A total of 140 registered nurses participated. A total of 60 observations with checklist were conducted by two observers, in morning and afternoon nursing shifts. Results: Average compliance rate with the structured content protocol during bedside handovers was high (85.18±10.39). Items that were most often omitted included the health education for patients / family, proposed treatment plan and next step, reason for admittance, and discharge date. On average, the duration of a bedside handover was 291±58.61 seconds. Factors related to hospital standards and work environment influence process of bedside clinical handover among nurses in intensive care units. Conclusions: Compliance with standardized handover is high and feasible to be applied for other registered nurses. In addition, nursing handover is a critical daily task influenced by organizational and environmental factors..

Abstract : Heart failure can influence all aspects of patients' health despite the improvement in its treatment. Different factors might affect the quality of life for patients with heart failure. These factors might include: age, gender, ejection fraction, culture, social support, and perceived control. The purpose of this study was to check the effect of perceived control on quality of life among patients with heart failure in Jordan. A cross-sectional correlation design was used with a sample of 220 patients with a confirmed diagnosis of heart failure. Data were collected using 36-Item Short Form Survey and the Control Attitudes Scale-Revised. Data were analyzed using multiple regression. The mean age was 53.24±8.92 years with a duration of heart failure diagnosis ranged from 1-15 years. Perceived control mean was 26.90±4.42. Patients reported poor quality of life in role physical, general health, vitality domains, and physical component summary, indicating poor quality of life. In multiple regression, higher levels of (Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction and perceived control) improved physical and mental component summaries. In conclusion, Jordanian patients with heart failure reported poor quality of life and relatively high levels of perceived control which improves the quality of life. Interventions improving perceived control in those patients might enhance the quality of life, and decrease mortality and morbidity..
