Day 1 :
Bingol University, Turkey
Time : 09-9:35
Imran Aslan has done his four years healthcare education as Emergency Medical Technician at Batman Health Vocational High School between 1996-2000. Moreover, he has published more than 25 international articles at famous SSCI, ISI etc., indexed journals and also a book named as “Healthcare Management: Optimization of Resources and Determining Success and Performance Factors” published in 2016.
The level of morale and motivation, motivation tools, variables determining job satisfaction, leadership styles and qualifications, promotions, awarding, preferences for business quality of life, business dissatisfaction, overall expectations or expectations in terms of professional development are main factors affecting both job life quality and motivation. Healthcare is a service oriented field need high motivation for better treatment and increasing satisfaction of patients. Bingöl city is located in East of Turkey and has a main government hospital providing main healthcare services to 106 thousand people in city center. To determine the job life quality and motivating factor affecting satisfaction, 109 surveys were applied to workers of hospital at third quarter of 2016. ANOVA method and descriptive statistic methods are used to find most critical factors affecting motivation. The results can be compared and generalized with other fields. Unfair promotions and effect of politician in healthcare are main dissatisfaction points.
Director of Nursing/Children Specialist Hospital, Saudi Arabia
Time : 09:35-10:10
He done research on Qualitative research and its uses in health care (2008),Sultan Qaboos University Medical Journal. Nursing in Saudi Arabia: Evolution or Revolution (2009), Unpublished Doctoral Thesis, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.Obeid Al Rashoud ,Nursing Director.
Introduction: Saudi Arabia being the largest country in the GCC is experiencing rapid growth and development in the healthcare sector. The increased demand for qualified nursing workforce has led to the recruitment of overseas qualified nurses (OQN) to match the healthcare sector demand and contribute to exchange of knowledge and experiences with local nurses. However, differences in culture, customs and language are expected to have an impact on the effectiveness and quality of life of OQN in Saudi Arabia.
Aim: To explore the factors associated with professional and personal challenges facing the OQNs in Saudi Arabia for ultimately formulating a set of recommendations to be employed first in ministry of health hospitals than in private hospitals in Saudi Arabia to effectively engage the OQN in their working environment to ensure successful communication, productive work and improved quality of life.
Methods: Prospective, qualitative, phenomenological study. We approached 23 OQNs. Our research tool was a qualitative interview assessing the contextual practice, accommodating to the Saudi culture, communication barriers and cultural differences. Thematic analyses were used as the data analysis technique.
Results: Two significant issues that affected the day-to-day professional practice of these nurses. The first was that the overall Saudi Islamic Culture was pervasive; and the second was that communication obstacles due to language barriers often presented insurmountable difficulties in their professional practice.
Conclusion: It appears that the language barrier is the pressing issue to be addressed by Arabic courses offered to OQNs in all hospitals. The areas of future research identified from the study include, exploring the views of hospital administrators to the challenges faced by OQNs, as well as the impact of these nurses on the quality of patient care. This links direct to the important area of strategies to increase the numbers of local Saudi nurses.
Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals, India
Keynote: Association analysis of 3’UTR gene polymorphisms of TLR4,NLRP3 and miRNA with chronic Periodontitis in south Indian ethnicity.
Time : 10:10-10:45
Prof. G.Kaarthikeyan did his postgraduation in Periodontics and implantology from Saveetha dental college in 2007.He is working at Saveetha university as faculty since 2007. He is cureently working as professor and clinic head at Saveetha dental college. He has more than 30 publications in various national and international journals. He has presented papers and posters at various international conferences. He has delivered many guest lectures as well as invited speaker for many conferences. His area of research involves the role of genetics in inflammatory disease and regenerative periodontics. He s the editor of upcoming journal- International journal of Periodontal rehabilitation . he s reviewer of many indexed journals and editorial board member of few journals.
Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease of multifactorial etiology. Although gram negative anaerobes are essential in initiating the disease, many other factors determine the course and progression of the periodontal destruction. Among the various risk factors , the genetic component of the host plays a major role in periodontal destruction. The microbial agents are first screened by the pattern like receptors – Toll like receptors(TLR) and the signals are processed intracellularly by Nod like receptors -NLRP3. Thus the aim of my study was to analyse the association of 3’UTR polymorphisms of TLR4,NLRP3 gene and the micro RNAs regulating these region. The subjects were stratified into three groups -chronic periodontitis ,aggressive periodontitis and controls. The sample size was 240. DNA extraction from blood samples done and the polymorphisms were analysed using real time PCR. The TLR4(rs11536889), NLRP3(rs10802501), miR-146a (rs2910164) were analysed in this study.
National Institute for Biological Standards & Control (NIBSC), UK
Time : 11:05-11:40
Dr Fatme Mawas is an immunologist/microbiologist by training and got her PhD 1995 from King’s College (London).
She is Principal Scientist and Group Leader at the Division of Bacteriology at NIBSC with over 19-years’ experience in the quality control and standardisation of conjugate vaccines against Haemophilus influenzae b, animal models and vaccine immunology.
She has over 29 refereed papers covering various aspects of assay development, standardisation and R&D in the field of conjugate vaccines, vaccine candidates and novel delivery systems.
Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) was a leading cause of meningitis in infants in the UK until October 1992, when Hib conjugate vaccine was introduced for children at age 2, 3, and 4 months.
Quality control testing of the vaccine is very important to ensure the quality, safety and efficacy of the vaccine. Here we describe our experience at the UK National Institute for Biological standards & Control in the testing and investigation of quality and efficacy of Hib vaccines in monovalent formulations and in combination with other vaccines such as meningococcal C or DTP-based combination vaccines
