Today, the problem of lateral violence continues to persist in many healthcare organizations. Different researchers have previously tried to research the issue. Thus, defining lateral violence as behaviors between colleges involving covert or overt acts of verbal and non-verbal aggression concerning the states Nurse Association. However, these studies did not concentrate on a specific facility, creating the need to get more viable results regarding the challenge. The paper will evaluate lateral violence awareness among nurses in Prince Mohammed Bin Nasser Hospital. The primary purpose of the survey is to recognize an understanding of the situation through inquiring and observing verbal and nonverbal languages used by nurses in the facility as they employ and describe substantial factors affecting their experience in the nursing environment. Also, it aims at identifying possible causes of lateral violence and recommending solutions to enhance a suitable work environment for the nurses in PMNH. To enhance the achievement of the research purpose, the researchers used four research questions. Is lateral violence present in the facility? If so, what are some of its characteristics? How do nurses in PMNH view lateral violence? How do the nurses understand, experience, and present lateral violence? What are some of the factors contributing to lateral violence in PMNH? What are some of the solutions to address lateral violence in the facility? The questions guided the study in designing and establishing the best research methodology. Data used in this study was collected from 250 nursing participants. The research integrates the use of SPSS to provide

The limitation concerns the therapeutic heterogeneity between researches that can decrease the generalization of the findings of experiential treatment effects. However, the response explanation was sensibly reliable within the intervention model of Active-aging in the elderly. It may be hard to determine whether the results were attributed to the Happy-age education alone (Rhythmic exercises or laughter therapy, a synergetic intervention effect, or to the conservative treatment received by the patients. Nevertheless, results from our overall analysis support Happy-age education as an additional convenient strategy or as a singular basic therapy for older adults to remain active and spend high quality of life It is also a limitation that the included studies' wisdom components (cognitive, affective, and reflective) components were not assessed. Unmeasured wisdom levels like cognitive impairment and underdeveloped wisdom in the elderly could have been hampered with the report of Active-aging levels and wisdom levels themselves, as poor wisdom in the elderly is associated with increased mental health illness and loneliness.

Maternal gum disease is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes such as preterm birth and low birthweight. This study aims to evaluate the knowledge, attitudes and practice behaviour of Australian midwives regarding the periodontal health of pregnant women to inform interprofessional antenatal care. This was an observational, cross-sectional study. We circulated an online questionnaire to Australian midwives from August 2018 to February 2019. Key outcome variables were knowledge, attitudes, and practice behaviours related to oral health. Key predictor variables were years of practice, practice location, and dental history. We summarized responses with frequency tables and assigned tallied scores for analysis using non-parametric statistical tests. 100 responses were analysed, including from rural (n = 23) and urban (n = 77) midwives. Eighty percent of midwives agreed that maternal dental care can positively affect pregnancy outcomes. Fluoridated toothpaste use (19.1%) was incorrectly answered to prevent gum disease more often than psychological stress control (7.9%), a correct answer. Rural midwives demonstrated a significantly higher knowledge score (p = 0.001) and significantly more positive practice behaviours towards oral health (p = 0.014) than urban midwives. Australian midwives have positive attitudes towards antenatal oral health but misunderstand gum disease aetiology and prevention. This study highlights areas to improve interprofessional education for optimal oral health and pregnancy outcomes.

This study aimed at determining the quality of life on a group of 71 hemodialysis patients in DaVita Clinic Dialysis Station in Piła. The research instruments were: the 36-Item Short Form Health Survey, the Adherence to Refills and Medications Scale and the author’s questionnaire.
Our findings showed that the main total score of adherence to treatment is 17.8 ±4.1. Data analysis regarding the quality of life among hemodialysis patients indicated that respondents had the best quality of life in domains such as: sense of mental health, bodily pain and mental component summary. On the other hand, the results were the worst in case of physical functioning, general health perception and physical role functioning. Additionally, it has been noted that the patients function better in terms of mental than physical component summary.
Based on the survey results it has been concluded that age correlates in a statistically significant way with the quality of life across all the domains (p< 0.05) except for bodily pain and general health perception. It means that the higher the age the lower the quality of life in terms of pain and general perception of health. The analysis showed a statistically relevant correlation (p<0.05) between place of residence and physical role functioning, general health perception, vitality emotional role functioning, physical component summary and mental component summary. This means that the quality of life is better among residents of cities in comparison with rural population. Other domains did not demonstrate statistically relevant differences.

Keynote: Factors associated with antenatal care visits in a mekong delta province in vietnam - the role of male partners: a cross-sectional study
Time : 11:00-11:30 AM
Tran Thi Tuyet Nga has completed his Master of Public Health at the age of 28 years from Mahidol University, Thailand. She has more than 10 years of experiences in researching and teaching reproductive health. She is also well understanding of local community values and advocacy to public policy.
Background: Antenatal care (ANC) plays a crucial role to ensure women and child health. The inadequate ANC increases the risk of preterm birth and low birth weight. However, the rate of ANC utilization according to the recommendations of Ministry of Health is still quite low in rural areas. This study aimed to determine the rate of ANC visit and factors associated to the last pregnancy among women in a Mekong Delta province in Vietnam.
Methods: A community-based cross-sectional study was conducted in Chau Thanh District in Mekong Delta province of Vietnam. Face – to – face interview was used for collecting detailed information among 331 mothers who had children under 12 months old by structured questionnaire.
Results: More than three-quarters women (84.9%) attended at least 4 ANC visits and 35.4% attended 8 ANC visits according to WHO recommendations. Mean time of first visit was 7th week, reported by 87.3% of mothers. The higher educational level of women was, the higher the number of ANC visits was. High educational husband (PR=1.13; CI:1.05-1.22), husband working on the boat (PR= 0.76 ; CI 95%: 0.59 – 0.98), having at least 2 full term children (PR= 0.68; CI 95%: 0.50 – 0.93) were significantly associated with the adequate ANC visits.
Conclusions: The educational levels of both women and her husband were significantly related to the adequate ANC visits. Therefore, knowledge of antenatal care should be provided for women and male partners in maternal health programs.

Over 90% of HIV infections among children are through Mother-To-Child Transmission. The high rates of HIV infection among women, high birth rates and failure to utilize available Prevention of Mother-To-Child Transmission interventions translate to high rates of HIV transmission to children hence a high burden of paediatric HIV disease. The window of opportunity for effective intervention is short, many of these children often die very young from preventable and treatable common childhood illnesses. Many of them die of AIDS related causes before their HIV status is known hence not receiving the necessary interventions. Early diagnosis of HIV is therefore critical for timely intervention in order to save their lives, thus the need to scale up access to EID (early infant diagnosis of HIV) services. Progress in stopping new infections and ensuring that mothers are alive and healthy, requires reaching the full cross-section of pregnant women with essential health services, to achieve the vision 2030 of zero HIV infections and zero AIDS related deaths. Currently HIV infections of children born to HIV positive mothers is about 14%, this trend needs to be reversed. This study sought to find out EID utilization, its determinants and whether there is a difference in health outcome and HIV prognosis if EID is utilized at six weeks or diagnosis of HIV in children is done later. Mixed Methods Research Design was used in this study. That is QUAN-QUAL. Quantitative methods consisted of cross-sectional surveys and case-control. Qualitative methods used were focused group discussions and in-depth discussions.
