This study develops and evaluates the "INdividual and Family-Oriented Responsive Messaging EDucation" (INFORMED) intervention in increasing knowledge about COVID-19 testing and decreasing decisional conflicts of getting tested for COVID-19. A 2-arm randomized controlled trial will compare INFORMED delivered by LHW educational outreach plus Short Message Service (SMS) text messaging to SMS text with LHW support.
Health care professionals (HCPs) help an support patients living with type 1 diabetes (PWT1D) who need to achieve optimal blood glucose control in order to prevent short and long term complications of T1D. However, studies show that not all HCPs are aware of T1D management as most of them only see PWT1D occasionally. This makes it difficult for HCPs to remain aware of the particularities of the condition and stay up-to-date on rapidly evolving technologies and therapies available. Moreover, low confidence levels and the inaccessibility to continuing medical education on the specificities of new therapies and technologies might increase the failure of HCPs to propose the optimal treatment plan to their PWT1D. The SUPPORT online platform, that was first developed for PWT1D, was adjusted to suit the needs of HCPs (SUPPORT-Pro). The regularly updated bilingual (English and French) peer-reviewed content of SUPPORT, which covers the various elements that an individual with T1D needs to know to manage the disease and aims at making a better use of technologies and new therapies, is the first in its kind and is highly relevant for HCPs. The main objective of this study is to determine if the SUPPORT-Pro online training platform can increase HCPs' (dietitians, nurses, pharmacists, medical doctors) confidence level in treating individuals with T1D. This study is a non-randomized pre-post trial. We hypothesize that the training provided through the SUPPORT-Pro online platform will significantly increase HCPs' confidence level in treating individuals with T1D after 3 months when compared to their confidence level before the intervention.
The objective of the BRAINYAC program is to prepare high school students for, and deliver, the experience of working in a neuroscience research laboratory over a summer. Our program goals are to prepare local students from Upper Manhattan and the South Bronx with the skills necessary to enter a working research laboratory over a period of 8 months, and support them in learning key laboratory skills and communicating them to an audience.Our hypothesis is that students' self-reports of scientific effectiveness and science identity will improve over the course of the 8-month long program. Self-reported efficacy measures predict academic performance in science, so an improvement in these self-report measures may indicate a higher likelihood to succeed in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) studies or careers. Likewise, science identity has a positive impact on a student's likelihood of entering a science career, particularly in populations that are under-represented in science.Over a 4-year period we will track students' self-reports of (1) scientific efficacy, including their level of confidence in scientific writing, oral presentation, library and literature search, conducting research and general academic skills, and (2) science identity. We will adopt a mixed-methods approach combining survey data with focus groups and interviews to present a full picture of these changes. We also propose to track students after they leave the program, to measure whether the changes in scientific self-efficacy translate into STEM studies at the level of higher education or career choices. We will also obtain data from scientific mentors in the program to inform us whether we are adequately supporting them in providing the students with training.
The purpose of this study is to assess changes in benchmark and state assessment scores in a public elementary school following an intervention of dance integration into the daily routine of the classroom. Furthermore, this study aims to assess if dance may improve student behavior, teacher perception of student behavior, reading level and attendance.
After the initial hospitalization, parents of children newly diagnosed with cancer assume responsibility for assessing and managing their care; however, parents are often overwhelmed with information received throughout the hospitalization and are apprehensive about caring for their child at home. Parents want concise, focused information on how to care for their child after the hospital discharge. Two parent education discharge support strategies (PEDSS) were created to use at hospital discharge. PEDSS consists of a symptom management intervention and a support for the caregiver intervention. A cluster randomized control trial will assess the effectiveness and feasibility of the two different interventions.
Multiple studies have shown clinical simulation benefits over classical learning method. Research on simulation of airway management has focused on endotracheal intubation training, while research on ventilation via facemask is scant. The investigators compared both learning methods regarding the acquirement of basic skills for airway management by medical students. Students in the clinical simulation group received a 3-hour training on airway management on the first day of their 28-day anesthesia rotation, while classical learning did not. On the last day of rotation, participants were evaluated based on a validated instrument of scores. Primary outcome was airway management scores. Secondary outcomes were rate of success of intubation and incidence of complications.
Procedures: The study will be conducted in two phases: Phase 1 - Perception and Satisfaction questionnaire will be developed - A validation test will be conducted on the Perception and Satisfaction questionnaire (face, content and construct) before conducting the study. The validation process will involve the participation of lecturers, professors and students by convenience sampling. Phase 2 - To prevent bias from the researchers, each participant will be given their code as their identification number. Then the participants will be randomly divided into two groups. They will be briefed on the purpose of study (stating that, the investigators would like to see the efficacy of various teaching methods on students' knowledge gain) and procedure of the study (examinations will be conducted, surveys at the end of each class session and at the end of the study). They are requested to fill up basic demographic data, consent form and ILS questionnaire(measuring the learning style of student) before beginning the study. - In this study, the lecture will be given by the 'Researcher 1' to standardize the input to the participants of the two groups. This will produce a standardized input to the students of the two groups of teaching method. - For the FC (flipped classroom) group, the length of the pre-recorded lecture videos will be the same which the participants can view it unlimitedly. An assignment will be given for FC group that will be attempted during the discussion class(2 hours) a week after with the lecturer. No grades will be given for the assignment. - Meanwhile for the TC(traditional classroom) group, a standard lecture class of 1 hour and 1 hour of tutorial class will be conducted on the same topic. The same ungraded assignment will also be given to this group a week after the lecture class to be attempted in the tutorial class - One day gap will be given following the discussion and tutorial class for FC and TC groups respectively following which an examination of 1 hour duration will be conducted to test on their level of knowledge (assessed by exam score) on the topic being taught for both the groups using the same set of questions. - At the end of the study, each participant will be given a feedback questionnaire to evaluate their perception and satisfaction on the teaching method applied on them using the 'Perception and Satisfaction Questionnaire'.
