Introdução - A sonolência é descrita como a interação entre o momento circadiano para adormecer e o aumento da necessidade de sono, e está em geral, associada ao decréscimo do alerta, do tempo de reação, da memória, da coordenação psicomotora, do entendimento da informação, do tempo para se tomar decisões, da maior incidência de uso de substâncias estimulantes e de substâncias álcoolicas. Na adolescência, a sonolência limita as perspectivas dos adolescentes quanto ao seu desenvolvimento intelectual. Muito pouco se conhece sobre a percepção da sonolência em estudantes trabalhadores. Objetivo - Verificar variações da sonolência ao longo do dia e o possível impacto das atividades diárias e estilos de vida na sonolência em estudantes. Metodologia - A população estudada compreendem estudantes trabalhadores e não-trabalhadores, alunos do ensino médio do período noturno de uma escola pública estadual da cidade de São Paulo, SP. Participaram estudantes entre 14 e 21 anos de idade incompletos. Os estudantes selecionados preencheram os questionários de: caracterização das condições de vida, saúde e sono, matutinidade-vespertinidade, caracterização das condições de trabalho e freqüência alimentar. Em seguida foi realizada a obtenção de registros sobre o ciclo vigília-sono dos estudantes através de métodos subjetivos (Protocolo diário de atividades...

The aim of this cross-sectional study was to determine the hepatitis B vaccination coverage among medical students at a public university in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and their compliance with the postvaccination serologic testing recommendations. Of the total of 858 students, 675 (78.7%) participated in the study. Among the participants, 48.9% (95% CI: 45.1% to 52.7%) were vaccinated against hepatitis B (received ≥ 3 doses of the vaccine), 31.6% were not (received 0, 1 or 2 doses), and 19.6% did not know their vaccination status. Hepatitis B vaccination coverage increased from 26.0% among first-year students to 70.6% among sixth-year students while the prevalence of unknown vaccination status decreased from 39.7% among first-year students to 2.4% among sixth-year students. The frequency of unvaccinated students ranged from 23.7% among fifth-year students to 34.4% among first-year students. Only 34.8% of the vaccinated students performed the anti-HBs testing after vaccination. Among these medical students, we found a low adherence to the hepatitis B vaccination and to the postvaccination serologic testing. A comprehensive hepatitis B immunization program should be offered to students at this medical school.

Objective: Medical training is considered a significant stress factor. We sought to assess the prevalence and intensity of anxiety and depressive symptoms in medical students and compare samples of first-year and sixth-year students. Method: This was a cross-sectional study of first- and sixth-year medical students who attended classes regularly. The study instruments were a sociodemographic questionnaire, the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), and the Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI). Results: A total of 232 students (110 first-year, 122 sixth-year) completed the questionnaires, for a response rate of 67.4%. Overall 50.4% of respondents were male (56.4% of first-year and 45.1% of sixth-year students). Anxiety symptoms were reported by 30.8% of first-year students and 9.4% of sixth-year students (p < 0.001). Female students were more affected by anxiety. There were no significant between-group differences in depressive symptoms. Conclusion: A higher prevalence of anxiety symptoms was found in first-year medical students as compared with sixth-year students. Strategies should be developed to help medical students, particularly female students, manage these symptoms at the beginning of their medical training.

A necessidade de reformas curriculares, direcionadas à formação de profissionais capazes de promover a saúde do ser humano em seu sentido holístico, estimulou um crescente interesse pela saúde mental e qualidade de vida relacionada à saúde (QVRS) dos estudantes de medicina. Diante disso, este estudo teve como objetivo avaliar a QVRS dos estudantes do primeiro ao sexto anos do curso de medicina da Universidade Federal de Uberlândia por meio do Medical Outcomes Survey 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36). Após consentimento livre e esclarecido, estudantes do curso de medicina do primeiro ao sexto ano e ingressantes responderam de maneira auto-aplicada um questionário sócio-demográfico, o SF-36 e o Inventário de Depressão de Beck. O coeficiente de alfa Cronbach foi calculado para determinar a confiabilidade do SF-36. Os estudantes e ingressantes foram comparados quanto às características sócio-demográficas. Os escores obtidos por meio do SF-36 foram comparados segundo o ano de estudo, a presença de sintomas depressivos, o sexo e residir com/sem a família (teste de Mann-Whitney ou Kruskal-Wallis). Os escores do SF-36 foram correlacionados com a renda familiar (coeficiente de correlação de Spearman). O tamanho do efeito (TE) foi calculado para determinar a magnitude das diferenças entre os grupos com o grupo de ingressantes ou do primeiro ano. Participaram da pesquisa 352 estudantes distribuídos entre o primeiro e sexto anos do curso e 38 ingressantes. A idade média dos ingressantes foi de 19...

Public schools traditionally have been held accountable for educating the majority of the nation’s school children, and through the years, these schools have been evaluated in a variety of ways. Currently, evaluation measures for accountability purposes consist solely of standardized test scores. In the past, only test scores of general education students were analyzed. Laws governing the education of students with disabilities, however, have extended accountability measures not only to include those students, but to report their scores in a disaggregated form (No Child Left Behind Act, 2002). The recent emphasis on accountability and compliance has resulted in the need for schools to carefully examine how programs, services, and policies impact student achievement (Bowers & Figgers, 2003). Standard-based school reform and accountability systems have raised expectations about student learning outcomes for all students, including those with disabilities and minority students. Yet, overall, racial/ethnic minority students are performing well below their White non-Hispanic peers in most academic areas. Additionally, with respect to special education, there exists an enduring problem of disproportionate representation of racial/ethnic minority students (National Research Council...

Medical students experience elevated levels of psychological distress and they are reluctant to seek professional help for mental health problems. They are also reticent to notify authorities about colleagues experiencing psychological distress. Yet, young people are more likely to seek help from peers than from any other source and we know very little about the help that these peers provide to their distressed colleagues. The current research explored medical students’ approaches to colleagues experiencing psychological distress: firstly, to determine whether they notice the distress of colleagues; secondly, to explore what determines consideration to intervene and help colleagues; and thirdly, the range of helping behaviours provided. Comparisons were made with students from other professional tertiary disciplines. Students from all six years of an undergraduate medical course were compared with convenience samples from Psychology, Law and Mechanical Engineering at The University of Adelaide. Students were recruited for one of three studies which employed a variety of measures, including the Kessler Measure of Psychological Distress (K10), a Retrospective Helping Behaviour Instrument (RHBI) and a Hypothetical Helping Behaviour Instrument (HHBI). Psychological distress (as determined by the K10) among the disciplines surveyed (N = 949) was 4.4 times that of age-matched population normative data. Despite this high rate of distress...

Personal epistemology addresses "the theories and beliefs that individuals hold about knowledge and knowing and the way in which such epistemological perspectives are related to academic learning" (Hofer, 2004, p. 120). Hofer and Pintrich (1997) proposed that personal epistemological theories consist of two constructs: the nature of knowledge and the nature of knowing. These constructs are hypothesised to exist on a continuum ranging from naïve to sophisticated epistemological beliefs. Personal epistemology is particularly applicable to medical students in a problem-based-learning (PBL) program, as it emphasises self-directed learning, as "beliefs about knowing and knowledge are potentially important determinants of intellectual performance" (Kuhn, Cheney & Weinstock, 2000, p. 309). There is a paucity of studies in the medical education literature on personal epistemological beliefs (Knight & Mattick, 2006). Roex and Degryse (2007) argue that "insights into students‘ epistemological beliefs have yet to find their way into the curriculum" (p. 616). Savin-Baden (2000) reported that "students‘ voices are largely missing from the literature on problem-based-learning, key elements such as learning context… are rarely acknowledged" (p. 26). The aims of this study was to investigate how personal epistemological beliefs were conceptualised by medical students at the end of their first two years in a PBL medical program; whether their beliefs evolved over the first two years and were related to the process of learning; and whether they differed between students from the lowest and highest ranked academic groups. A qualitative research design framed this investigation. A series of interviews were conducted with 12 second year medical students selected according to a maximum variation purposeful sampling technique (Patton...

There is an absence of research in Australia on self-concept and test anxiety in students with disabilities although testing is taken for granted among students without disabilities. This study investigated the self-concept and test anxiety of the students in each of two disability groups, those with vision impairment and those with intellectual disability who were placed in specialist and mainstream educational settings in South Australia. The qualitative study aimed to gain insights into what students with vision impairment and those with intellectual disability felt about themselves and their achievements across the different dimensions of self-concept and to understand the nature and extent of their anxiety in test situations. In addition, it sought to examine how far the support services provided in schools proved helpful to students with vision impairment and those with intellectual disability. This research was divided into two stages of execution. In Stage 1, the ‘Tennessee Self- Concept Scale: Second Edition’ and the ‘Test Anxiety Inventory’ were administered to 25 students with vision impairment and 20 students with intellectual disability. In Stage 2, interviews were conducted with 14 students with vision impairment and nine students with intellectual disability...

Background - The transition to higher education involves many changes for students. Objectives - The aim of the study was to characterize nursing students' suicidal behaviors, use of medication, social support and reasons for living. Design - A quantitative cross-sectional and correlational descriptive study was conducted at a Portuguese nursing college. Methods -. The Social Support Satisfaction Scale (Pais-Ribeiro, 1999) and the Reasons for Living Inventory (Matias & Santos, 2014) were used. Results - Most nursing students are women, with a mean age of 20 years, and most of them have siblings. The majority of them lives outside the city of Coimbra. Approximately 5% of students showed suicidal behaviors, being more frequent among women. Around 20% of the students take medication, with a higher prevalence among women. Fourth-year students had the lowest reasons for living and satisfaction with social support scores. Conclusions - Five percent of the students had a history of suicidal behaviors. Nine percent of the students take psychotropic medications. The students who take medication are 2.3578 times more likely to have suicidal behaviors. Fourth-year students had the lowest mental health scores. Third-year students were the most satisfied with social support...

It is now recognised by politicians, experts and Indigenous people throughout Australia that a large gap exists between the educational achievements of Indigenous students compared to non-Indigenous students. There are many 'key performance indicators' that illustrate this: ability to read, count and write; transition from primary to secondary school; retention rates to year twelve; matriculation from school to vocational and tertiary study; and most importantly, school attendance. The Indigenous school attendance percentages in 2006 varied considerably between Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory, yet they can be grouped in a range of 71-86 per cent. Non-Indigenous students who are enrolled attend school approximately 95 per cent of the time. This indicates at best a 9 per cent gap, and at worst a 24 percentage point gap. These figures also roughly correlate to the percentage of Indigenous children not enrolled at school, compared to those non Indigenous children who are. The Commonwealth Government wants to close the 'education gap' and has allocated $2.1 billion over four years (2005-2008) to Indigenous education. Much of this comes in the form of Supplementary Recurrent Assistance (SRA) which...

BACKGROUND: Non-communicable diseases are currently the leading cause of death worldwide. Leading healthy lifestyles as a means of prevention is one of the most important aspects of preventing the occurrence of non-communicable diseases. Working from the premise that physicians globally serve as role models for patients and their health beliefs can influence how they interact and counsel patients, this international study ("MedLife") seeks to examine the self-report of health behaviors and clinical practice attitudes towards preventive counseling of medical students at institutions in China and the US, and identify any associations between these behaviors and students' clinical practice attitudes towards preventive counseling of future patients.

METHODS: From 2012-2013, a total of 860/1,216 (response rate = 71%) medical students from Duke University in the US and Peking University Health Science Center and Xi'an Jiaotong University in China completed culturally-adapted web versions of the 33-item "MedLife" questionnaire. Items from the survey were pulled from previously validated survey tools and included questions on diet, exercise, smoking, and alcohol consumption. Alcohol consumption was divided into heavy drinking and binge drinking. Prevalence estimates of health behaviors and attitudes towards preventive counseling in the domains of diet...

This capstone project focuses on creating a modified art curriculum for deaf students with secondary disabilities. From personal experiences, there are art curriculums designed for special education students in general and art curriculums for deaf students, but there is no art curriculum for deaf students with disabilities. Since deaf students with disabilities at residential schools already face a limitation by not being able to hear, they shouldn't face more limitations due to another disability. This paper will present what researchers have said about teaching art to both special education students and deaf students. This paper will also include how deaf and special education students' benefit from creating art and what needs to be done to modify or create a curriculum for deaf students with disabilities. Art is an education area where there is a need for improvement. Coming from a strong art background I chose the idea of establishing a curriculum for deaf students with disabilities, also known as "Deaf plus" because I had first hand experience and some struggle finding resources for teaching art to this specialized population. I know this same issue will continue without a proper resource. During my first internship in Canada...

The aim of this study is to investigate the sexual campus culture of students at the University of the Free State (UFS), by specifically focussing on gender and culture as patterns of high-risk sexual behaviour. The sample consisted of 396 participants, 211 female and 185 male students, with a mean age of 19.9 years. Sixty one percent (61%) of the students associated themselves with a Western cultural background and 39% with an African cultural background. In this article an exposition is provided on information collected in a survey conducted at the UFS to help provide a better understanding of risk factors for HIV infection among UFS students in comparison with the behaviour patterns of students at other universities. Stereotypes identified as known risk factors making students at other universities more vulnerable to HIV and high-risk sexual behaviour, were also found among UFS students. Results indicated the existence of the following statistical significant correlations: African cultural students, gender and their viewpoint that there is a stronger relationship between homosexuality and HIV/AIDS; their opinion that HIV/AIDS is more strongly associated with African students. Data obtained from this survey questionnaire show that even if students have a great deal of knowledge to their disposal...
