  • seroprevalence of hiv hbv hcv and syphilis infections among blood donors at gondar university Teaching Hospital northwest ethiopia declining trends over a period of five years
    BMC Infectious Diseases, 2010
    Co-Authors: Belay Tessema, Frank Emmrich, Gizachew Yismaw, Afework Kassu, Anteneh Amsalu, Andargachew Mulu, Ulrich Sack
    Abstract:

    Background Transfusion-transmissible infectious agents such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and syphilis are among the greatest threats to blood safety for the recipient. This study aimed to determine the seroprevalence, risk factors and trends of HIV, HBV, HCV and syphilis infections among blood donors over a period of five years at Gondar University Teaching Hospital, Northwest Ethiopia.

  • treatment outcome of tuberculosis patients at gondar university Teaching Hospital northwest ethiopia a five year retrospective study
    BMC Public Health, 2009
    Co-Authors: Belay Tessema, Abebe Muche, Assegedech Bekele, Dieter Reissig, Frank Emmrich, Ulrich Sack
    Abstract:

    In Gondar University Teaching Hospital standardized tuberculosis prevention and control programme, incorporating Directly Observed Treatment, Short Course (DOTS) started in 2000. According to the proposal of World Health Organization (WHO), treatment outcome is an important indicator of tuberculosis control programs. This study investigated the outcome of tuberculosis treatment at Gondar University Teaching Hospital in Northwest Ethiopia. We analyzed the records of 4000 tuberculosis patients registered at Gondar University Teaching Hospital from September 2003 to May 2008. Treatment outcome and tuberculosis type were categorized according to the national tuberculosis control program guideline. Multivariate analysis using logistic regression model was used to analyse the association between treatment outcome and potential predictor variables. From the total of 4000 patients, tuberculosis type was categorized as extrapulmonary in 1133 (28.3%), smear negative pulmonary tuberculosis in 2196 (54.9%) and smear positive pulmonary tuberculosis in 671 (16.8%) cases. Of all patients, treatment outcome was classified as successfully treated in 1181(29.5%), defaulted in 730 (18.3%), died in 403 (10.1%), treatment failed in six (0.2%) and transferred out in 1680 (42.0%) patients. Males had the trend to be more likely to experience death or default than females, and the elderly were more likely to die than younger. The proportion of default rate was increased across the years from 97(9.2%) to 228(42.9%). Being female, age group 15-24 years, smear positive pulmonary tuberculosis and being urban resident were associated with higher treatment success rate. The treatment success rate of tuberculosis patients was unsatisfactorily low (29.5%). A high proportion of patients died (10.1%) or defaulted (18.3%), which is a serious public health concern that needs to be addressed urgently.

  • residents perception of duty hour limits through Teaching Hospital accreditation status experience in taiwan
    Journal of the Formosan Medical Association, 2017
    Co-Authors: Tsung-hsi Wang, Brian C. Drolet, Kun-yu Tsai, Yu-fu Liu
    Abstract:

    Residents' work overload is a rising issue in Taiwan. Duty hours of the residents in the United States have been limited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education Common Program Requirements since 2003; similar standards were not implemented in Taiwan until 2013. Taiwanese duty hour standards are the work hour limits adopted as part of the required Teaching Hospital accreditation status. In January 2015, the Ministry of Health and Welfare conducted a national survey for all house officers in Taiwan. We collected data including those on demographics and perceptions of residents regarding duty hour limits. Most respondents reported positive perceptions of the duty hour standards. They felt that these limits will improve resident education, quality of life, and patient safety. The strong incentive to follow the regulations (through Teaching Hospital accreditation) could help protect residents (and patients) from unsafe working conditions. However, further studies on the influence of shortened duty hour on professional development are necessary for future improvement.
