Preparedness of community-based organisations in biohazard: Reliability and validity of an assessment tool

Rezaei F, Maracy MR, Yarmohammadian MH, et al. Preparedness of communitybased organisations in biohazard: reliability and validity of an assessment tool. Fam Med Com Health 2019;7:e000124. doi:10.1136/fmch-2019-000124

Family Medicine and Community Health

The purpose of this study was to develop a tool for community-based health organisations (CBHOs) to evaluate the preparedness in biohazards concerning epidemics or bioterrorism. We searched concepts on partnerships of CBHOs with health systems in guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and literature. Then, we validated the researcher-made tool by face validity, content validity, exploratory factor analysis (EFA), confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and criterion validity. Data were collected by sending the tool to 620 CBHOs serving under supervision of Iran’s ministry of health. Opinions of health professionals and stakeholders in CBHOs were used to assess face and content validity. Factor loads in EFA were based on three-factor structure that verified by CFA. We used SPSS V.18 and Mplus7 software for statistical analysis. About 105 health-based CBHOs participated. After conducting face validity and calculating content validity ratio and content validity index, we reached 54 items in the field of planning, training and infrastructure. We conducted construct validity using 105 CBHOs. Three items exchanged between the fields according to factor loads in EFA, and CFA verified the model fit as Comparative Fit Index, Tucker-Lewis index and root mean square error of approximation were 0.921, 0918 and 0.052, respectively. The Cronbach’s of the whole tool was 0.944. Spearman correlation coefficient confirmed criterion validity as coefficient was 0.736. Planning, training and infrastructure fields are the most important aspects of preparedness in health-based CBHOs. Applying the new assessment tool in future studies will show the weaknesses and capabilities of health-based CBHOs in biohazard and clear necessary intervention actions for health authorities

Defective cycle of entrepreneurship education in humanities in higher education

N Rafiei, MH Yarmohammadian… - Journal of …, 2019 - abacademies.org

Journal of Entrepreneurship Education

This paper presents a novel conceptual model based on the components of entrepreneurship education required for the students of the humanities in Iran’s universities. Using the Prisma method, 42 articles out of 120 scientific publications were selected as the main resources of this research for the duration of 2007 to 2017. This model was constructed by investigating the goals and content of entrepreneurship education in higher education from the selected articles and utilizing a qualitative content analysis method. The content analysis method used in this model is based on a deductive thematic approach in which a non-constructed matrix was applied for induction and creating new categories.

Based on our findings, the main components of entrepreneurship education for humanities in higher education were identified. These components are background competencies (including conceptual and communicational competencies), core competencies (including managerial and business competencies) and entrepreneurship enablers (including individual competencies). The results of this research indicate that there is a succession of faulty cycle in entrepreneurship education approaches as a mere subject or activity and neglect of the transcendental concept of entrepreneurship education instead of business education. Therefore, the proposed model in this research could correct the identified defective cycle in entrepreneurship education for students of the humanities.

Abdollahyar A, Baniasadi H, Doustmohammadi MM, Sheikhbardesiri H, Yarmohammadian MH. J Christ Nurs. 2019 Jan/Mar;36(1):E11-E16. doi: 10.1097/CNJ.0000000000000581.

Journal of Christian nursing : a quarterly publication of Nurses Christian Fellowship

Spirituality and spiritual care play a crucial role in providing more effective treatment for patients. The purpose of this study was to determine nurses' attitudes toward spirituality and spiritual care in an educational hospital in Iran. A significant association was found between nurses' spirituality/spiritual care attitudes and age, education level, and type of hospital ward employment (noncritical vs. critical care). Nurses' scores on attitudes toward spirituality and spiritual care suggest the need for more education in this area.

An investigation on workload indicator of staffing need: A scoping review

Doosty, F., Maleki, M. R., & Yarmohammadian, M. H. (2019). An investigation on workload indicator of staffing need: A scoping review. Journal of education and health promotion, 8, 22. https://doi.org/10.4103/jehp.jehp_220_18

Journal of Education and Health Promotion

The purpose of this scoping review was to survey the most recent (10 years) estimating of needed human resource in health-care organization by Workload Indicators of Staffing Need (WISN) method literature to understand themes and research avenues that may be helpful and beneficial to estimating of needed staff in health-care organizations. Our search strategy was based on using search engines such as Medline, Google Scholar, Scopus, and PubMed as well publications such as Elsevier, Emerald, ProQuest, and Springer. Finally, 31 articles extract for scoping review. Scoping review findings emerge in four key points that mentioned as follow: Service delivery time, Geographical features, Workload, and Supply and Demand. Furthermore, the strengths and weakness of WISN extracted from literature. As conclusion, the WISN method is applicable to any health-care organization, and of course, in smaller institutions, it can be done more quickly and efficiently. Where shortages of staff were identified using WISN, and if increasing the number of employees was impossible, we could use the task shifting. WISN can be used to calculate the required human resources for future models based on some assumptions such as the results of staff training, demographic changes, and disease profiles and staff turnover.

Challenges and recommendations for patient tracking in past earthquakes: An experience from Iran

Tavakoli, N., Yarmohammadian, M., Safdari, R., Keyvanara, M. (2018). 'Challenges and Recommendations for Patient Tracking in Past Earthquakes: An Experience from Iran', Trauma Monthly, 23(4), pp. -. doi: 10.5812/traumamon.15844

Trauma Monthly

Objectives: The aim of this study was to explore key informants’ experiences about challenges and recommendations of patient identification and tracking in past earthquakes in Iran. Methods: A qualitative survey of key informants’ experiences and views was carried out on emergency physicians and nurses, first responders and managers of red crescent society, and emergency medical services (EMS) from March to September 2015. Semistructured interviews were performed with informants who had experience of response to past earthquakes in Iran by using a purposive sampling method. Interviews were audiotaped, transcribed, and entered into MAXQDA (version 10) for coding and content analysis. A thematic analysis of interview transcripts was undertaken. Results: 5 themes including the crowd’s presence, lack of unified command and integrated management, deficiency of planning, shortage of managerial and information infrastructures, and human resources challenges with their subthemes were explored. Also, some solutions were explored as follows: community education, chain of command and integrated management in the disaster scene, and training the emergency medical personnel and first responders. Conclusions: There are many challenges that should be solved for improving patient tracking in future disasters in Iran. Planning for proper and effective communication between agencies that have responsibility for disaster management is very important. Also, community education is a vital measure to familiarize them with disaster and teach them how to save lives.

Hong Kong Journal of Emergency Medicine

Background: Hospitals play a critical role in providing communities with essential medical care during disasters. Objectives: In this article, the key components and recommended actions of WHO (World Health Organization) Hospital emergency response checklist have been considered to identify current practices in disaster/emergency hospital preparedness in actual or potential incidents. Methods: Articles were obtained through bibliographic databases, including ISI Web of Science, PubMed, Science Direct, Scopus, Google Scholar, and SID: Scientific information database. Keywords were “Disaster,” “Preparedness,” “Emergency Preparedness,” “Disaster Planning,” “Mass Casualty Incidents,” “Hospital Emergency Preparedness,” “Health Emergency Preparedness,” “Preparedness Response,” and “Emergency Readiness.” Independent reviewers (F.R. and M.H.Y.) screened abstracts and titles for eligibility. STROBE (STrengthening the Reporting of OBservational studies in Epidemiology) checklist was used to qualifying the studies for this review. Results: Of 1545 identified studies, 26 articles were implied inclusion criteria. They accounted for nine key components and 92 recommended actions. The majority of principles that had been rigorously recommended at any level of the hospital emergency preparedness were command and control and post-disaster recovery. Surge capacity was considered less frequently. Conclusion: We recommend considering the proposed disaster categories by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency). In this framework, different weights for nine components can be considered based on disaster categories. Thus, a more valid and reliable preparedness checklist could be developed.
