The existence of barriers within individual nurses and systems in the workplace can hinder nurses' participation in conducting research. So far there has been no research regarding barriers to nurse involvement in research at the Sint Elisabeth hospital in Semarang. Objective: This study aimed to evaluate barriers to nurse participation in research at Sint Elisabeth hospital Semarang. Method: A descriptive study was conducted involving 384 nurses at Elisabeth hospital Semarang and were selected by convenience sampling. Data was collected using a questionnaire on barriers to nurses' participation in research. Descriptive analysis was carried out in this study. Results: The mean barriers for research participation related to resources and perceived personal relevance of nurses were 3.31 and 2.51 (possible range&nbsp; 1-5), respectively. The highest barrier related to resources is the lack of incentive support or rewards for nurses who conduct research and the lack of financial or other resources to facilitate research activities. The highest barrier regarding perceived personal relevance is the absence of a topic or research idea. Conclusions: Barriers in nurses participation in research related to resources in the hospital were more felt by nurses than barrier related personal relevance.</p> 2024-02-23T10:38:37+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## The Correlation of Knowledge Level with Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Behaviour of Using Pesticides in Asparagus Farmers 2024-02-24T01:46:19+00:00 Ni Luh Gede Aris Maytadewi Negara I Putu Prisa Jaya Putu Vierda Lya Suandari <p>The use of pesticides in agriculture is not a new thing anymore. The use of pesticides by farmers aims to protect crops from pests. The use of pesticides by farmers is an activity that is included in a work assignment, so that to minimize the negative impact caused by pesticides, the use should be carried out according to healthy and safe procedures. The limited knowledge and understanding of farmers about the dangers of pesticides and not using work equipment that meets occupational safety and health standards are some of the factors that cause health problems due to exposure to pesticides to farmers. This study aims to determine the correlation between the level of knowledge and the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) behaviour of pesticide use in asparagus farmers. This study is quantitative research using analytical survey research methods, with cross sectional. The population in this study were asparagus farmers in Pelaga Village, Badung who routinely sprayed, with a sample of 63 people who were taken by purposive sampling technique. Data collection was carried out by giving questionnaires to farmers, and data analysis was carried out by using the test Chi-Square. As many as 42 people (66,7%) farmers have a good level of knowledge about pesticides, 40 people (63.5%) have a safe behaviour in the use of pesticides, and the chi-square test obtained a positive correlation with the value of P= 0.026(p&lt;0.05). This shows that there is a corelation between the level of knowledge and the Occupational Health and Safety behaviour of pesticide use in asparagus farmers.</p> 2024-02-24T01:46:19+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Analysis of the Level of Knowledge and Availability of Mask Waste Disposal Facilities in the Sanur Beach Area 2024-02-24T02:56:46+00:00 Desak Putu Risky Vidika Apriyanthi Ayu Saka Laksmita W Ni Putu Widayanti <p>The COVID-19 pandemic has created new problems for the environment as evidenced by the large number of masks, both medical masks (single-use) and non-medical masks, found in public places. The discovery of masks that are discarded in any place, especially in beach tourism areas, is something we usually encounter these days. This has a negative impact on the coastal environment, in the long run, it will be one of the causes of climate change, damage to coastal ecosystems, and ecotoxicity.&nbsp; Sanur Tourism Area is one of the most attractive tourist attractions for tourists both domestic and foreign tourists. The aim of this research is to contribute and provide feedback to the local government especially the Sanitation and Environmental Services Department, to be more concerned about the management of mask waste and the providing of its facilities. The design of this study is descriptive to describe the level of knowledge of Sanur Beach visitors regarding the availability of mask waste disposal facilities at Sanur Beach, it is found that beach visitors have a fairly good level of knowledge (45%) in understanding the impact of mask waste disposal on tourism at Sanur Beach.&nbsp; The majority of respondents stated that the mask waste disposal facilities at Sanur Beach are adequate but the correct procedure for disposing of mask waste has not been found. As many as 68% of respondents stated that there is a closed landfill at Sanur Beach for mask waste disposal. The availability of facilities to manage disposable mask waste is another important factor that influences community action in implementing good waste management. For this reason, it is necessary to coordinate with relevant agencies and Sanur village officials and community cadres to negotiate to provide shared bins at several locations on Sanur Beach specifically to accommodate mask waste only to make it easier for visitors to sort their waste and not mix their mask waste again with other domestic waste.</p> 2024-02-24T02:56:46+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Increasing Caregiver Knowledge about Long-Term Care with Interactive Educational Methods 2024-02-24T03:11:35+00:00 Thomas Aquino Erjinyuare Amigo Cornelia Dede Yoshima Nekada Rizky Erwanto Dwi Endah Kurniasih Muflih Muflih <p>The growing number of elderly individuals requiring long-term care (LTC) necessitates caregivers enhancing their understanding of this care through interactive educational methods. As the elderly population grows, caregivers play a crucial role in providing long-term care (LTC) to the elderly and meeting their basic needs, including medical care, psychosocial support, and daily living skills. Interactive educational methods can enhance caregiver knowledge about LTC, enabling them to provide more effective and efficient care, especially for those lacking medical or health knowledge. The purpose of this study is to examine how interactive educational techniques have increased caregivers' understanding of long-term care. The research sample consisted of 11 health cadres in the Ngemplak Community Health Center working area with a purposive sampling technique. Researchers conducted a pre-test and post-test to measure knowledge before and after interactive education about long-term care. Wilcoxon's test results showed a p value of 0.004. There's a meaningful difference in knowledge between pre-interactive education and after interactive education. Caregivers can continue to follow a variety of training or education related to long-term care, be able to identify or screen elderly persons who need long-term care, learn about long-term care for parents on a sustainable basis, and provide long-lasting care to elders that focuses on meeting the basic needs of the elder.</p> 2024-02-24T03:11:35+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
