Biomedical waste (BMW) management is an issue of major concern of all healthcare providers and healthcare establishments as the waste produced during the course of healthcare activities carries potential for infection and injury than any other type of waste. Biomedical waste management has recently emerged as an issue of present concern not only to hospitals, nursing home authorities but also to the environment. The bio-medical wastes generated from health care units depend upon a number of factors such as waste management methods, type of health care units, occupancy of healthcare units, specialization of healthcare units, ratio of reusable items in use, availability of infrastructure and resources etc. The proper management of biomedical waste has become a worldwide humanitarian topic today. Many studies across the country have shown that there are still deficiencies in the Knowledge, attitude and practices of the health care professionals in the organizations. Hence, A cross sectional study was carried out to assess the knowledge, attitude and practices regarding biomedical waste management among nursing professionals in a tertiary care hospital Bhubaneswar, Odisha. With due consideration to nursing personnel’s availability, accessibility, feasibility, and resources, we decided to include (n=100) of them in our study. The number of nursing personnel was selected by simple random sampling in their respective department/specialty. A pretested self-administered questionnaire was used to assess the knowledge, practices and attitude of the nursing personnel regarding biomedical waste management. Overall, the knowledge, attitudes and practices towards biomedical waste management among the nursing professionals were satisfactory. Complete hepatitis B vaccine coverage among nurses (100%) in our study is attributed to hospital policy of free immunization to high risk groups. Such policy decisions do have a positive impact on work efficiency of nurses by creating a sense of being protected.

Stem cell management is truly a primary bio-insurance for the well-being of babies- A study on Indian pregnant women

Swati Chaudhary, Dr. Supriti Agrawal

European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine, 2021, Volume 8, Issue 3, Pages 3403-3418

Background: In recent years, Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) have been shown
in developed countries to have an increasingly important impact on their health status
worldwide. The NCDs are the world's leading cause of death and a significant threat
to public health in developing countries. Almost 71 per cent of deaths worldwide are
individually responsible for non-communicable diseases including cardiovascular
diseases, stroke, cancer, diabetes and chronic condition. Almost three-fourths patients
with non-communicable diseases have died before the age of 70 and 82% of 16 million
prematurely deaths are in small and average countries are due to NCDs as per the
WHO report 2018. India is undergoing rapid transitions with increase in Noncommunicable
diseases (NCDs), that are resulting into significant rise in morbidity
and mortality in Urban and rural populations.47% of the patients in India are bearing
the treatment cost (Out of Pocket) themselves. Stem cell therapy is becoming the
crucial line of treatment for these diseases. In fact, from last two decades, Stem cells
derived from cord blood were used for treatment of blood disorders, immune systems
and metabolic diseases as an alternative to bone marrow transplants. In 2016, Noncommunicable
diseases (NCDs) control initiative was implemented by the Indian
government to educate about the use of stem cells to treat non-communicable diseases.
Doctors and biotech companies are helping to educate pregnant women to encourage
the use of stem cells so they can decide to store their child's cord blood as needed for
future use. Henceforth, this paper aims for understanding the attitude of Indian
pregnant women for the storage and usage of stem cell that would be a critical bioinsurance
for baby’s well –being

The objective of this paper is to assess the level of knowledge about HIV/AIDS among Interns of a Dental and Medical College. The data is collected through structured questionnaire by cross sectional study method with the sample size of 246. The model is tested on a context of Interns of dental and medical students for the first time. The present study has used a reflective measurement model. Due to the model complexity, the use of Partial Least Square-Structural Equation Modelling approach is found to be appropriate for the purpose of analysis of constructs and their corresponding data. The structural model has proved that the path coefficient value and empirical t values of exogenous latent variables on endogenous latent variable are above that threshold value in relationship between knowledge and trust as well as perception and trust except attitude and trust. The testing of hypothesis confirms the strong relationship between knowledge and trust as well as perception and trust. Based on the results of Importance Performance Matrix Analysis results corporate need focus on changing the perception of interns primarily. Hence,medical college must aim at increasing the performance of the target construct trust so their first priority should be to improve the performance aspects captured by the construct perception performance by improving its total effects as this construct has high chance to improve its total effect which in turn improves its performance.
