    Aims and objectives: The study investigated clinical nurses’ critical thinking levels in public hospitals and related factors. Background: Since health care environments have become more complex, the critical thinking skills of clinical nurses are more important in daily problem-solving and decision-making processes. However, little research was conducted on this topic among clinical nurses. Methods: It was a cross-sectional study at five public hospitals between December 2018 and January 2019. The study followed the STROBE guideline. Data were collected from 559 nurses by a survey consisted of a data form and the Turkish version of the Nursing Critical Thinking in Clinical Practice Questionnaire. Results: Nurses’ mean critical thinking scores were moderate level. Total critical thinking scores of the clinical nurses significantly differed according to education, hospital type, shift work, professional category and role. There was a significant effect on the total critical thinking scores of the clinical nurses according to variables. Conclusion: This study found that critical thinking levels of nurses’ working in clinical settings in public hospitals were moderate level. Hospital type, shift work, professional and educational level and role were significantly associated with clinical nurses’ critical thinking levels. Relevance to clinical practice: This study provides evidence related to the levels of critical thinking of clinical nurses working in public hospitals. Since the critical thinking scores of the manager nurses, daytime working nurses’ and nurses with bachelor's and master's degree education are higher, hospital managers may benefit from the study to implement effective strategies to improve the competence of critical thinking levels of nurses. © 2021 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    Lactose hydrolyzing activity of the lactase immobilized polycaprolactone and silk fibroin-based nanofiber and nitrocellulose membrane
    (Elsevier Ltd, 2022) Yılmaz-Karaoğlu S,Gürel-Gökmen B,Tunali-Akbay T ; Vocational School of Health Services, Fenerbahce University, Istanbul, Turkey; Department of Basic Medical Sciences, Dentistry Faculty, Marmara University, İstanbul, Turkey
    This study aimed to investigate the activity of lactase immobilized polycaprolactone and silk fibroin (PCL/SF)-based nanofiber and nitrocellulose membrane for the preparation of lactose-reduced milk. PCL/SF -based nanofiber was prepared by using the electrospinning method. The lactase enzyme was immobilized using the physical adsorption method on both surfaces, and then the optimum operating temperature and pH of the immobilized enzymes were determined. The efficiency of the immobilized lactase enzyme was determined in both goat and cow milk. The nutrient content of milk was also analyzed before and after the incubation of nanofiber and membrane with milk. The lactose hydrolysis efficiency of the lactase immobilized nitrocellulose membrane was found to be higher than the lactase immobilized PCL/SF -based nanofiber. Lactose was hydrolyzed 59% in cow milk and 87% in goat milk by using lactase immobilized nitrocellulose membrane. 42% of lactose was also hydrolyzed in cow milk and 21% was hydrolyzed in goat milk by using lactase immobilized PCL/SF-based nanofiber. However, the use of these two bioactive surfaces did not change the fat and protein composition of both cow and goat milk. In conclusion, lactase immobilized nitrocellulose membrane was found to be more advantageous in the production of lactose-reduced milk than the lactase immobilized polycaprolactone/silk fibroin nanofiber. © 2022 Elsevier Ltd

    Validity and Reliability of a New Method to Measure Cervical Proprioception
    (Georg Thieme Verlag, 2022) Koseoglu A,Coskunsu DK,Mutlu EK ; Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation, Bahcesehir University, Institue of Health Sciences, Istanbul, Turkey; Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation, Fenerbahce University, Faculty of Health Sciences, Istanbul, Turkey; Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation, Bandirma Onyedi Eylul University, Faculty of Health Sciences, Istanbul, Turkey
    Objective An accurate and reliable measurement of proprioception is important in the evaluation of the cervical. The aim of this study is to investigate the validity and reliability of a new method using Horizontal Plane Target Platform (HPTP) to assess Head Repositioning Accuracy (HRA) for Cervical Proprioception (CP). Methods HRA values of 86 healthy volunteers (21.01±2.16 yrs.) were measured through AOS PropPoint laser apparatus device on HPTP, Frontal Plane Target Platform (FPTP), and also CROM device to assess test-retest reliability and validity. Results The test-retest measurements of HPTP reliability was (ICC left=0.69, ICC right=0.74; SEM left=0.28, SEM right=0.36; MDC left=1.85, MDC right=2.02 95%CI) were moderate for both side. Correlation with the CROM device results was moderate for both side (r=0.75 for left size, r=0.83 for right side), and the absolute values demonstrate concordance between results using the Bland-Altman method. Conclusions HRA measurements performed with a laser apparatus on HPTP which we developed can be used as an alternative method in CP evaluation. © 2022 Georg Thieme Verlag. All rights reserved.

    Developing a valid and reliable Perceived Global Future Scale
    (John Wiley and Sons Inc, 2022) Bodur G,Harmanci Seren AK ; Department of Nursing Education, Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Istanbul University-Cerrahpasa, Istanbul, Turkey; Department of Nursing, Faculty of Health Sciences, Fenerbahce University, Istanbul, Turkey
    Purpose: To develop a valid and reliable data collection tool to define individuals' perceptions of the global future. Design and Methods: This methodological study was carried out on 870 participants in Istanbul, a city with the country's highest and most diverse population. Findings: Content validity, construct validity, item analyses, and stability of the draft tool were tested. The seven-factor scale structure was confirmed. Cronbach's alpha coefficient of the scale was.93. Practice Implications: The Perceived Global Future Scale, consisting of 36 items and seven dimensions, was used. It is a valid and reliable tool to define perceptions of individuals on the global future. © 2021 Wiley Periodicals LLC.

    The Safety and Efficacy of Psychosocial Adherence Interventions in Young People with Early Psychosis: A Systematic Review
    (MDPI, 2022) Dikeç G,Brown E,Bressington D,Thompson A,Gray R ; Department of Nursing, Faculty of Health Sciences, Fenerbahçe University, Istanbul, 34758, Turkey; School of Nursing and Midwifery, La Trobe University, Bundoora, Melbourne, VIC 3086, Australia; Centre for Youth Mental Health, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences, The University of Melbourne, Melbourne, VIC 3052, Australia; College of Nursing and Midwifery, Charles Darwin University, Darwin, VIC 0810, Australia
    Background: The role of antipsychotic medication in supporting young people in their recovery from early psychosis is complex and controversial. It is common for young people, often given antipsychotic medication for the first time, to express a choice to stop treatment, potentially increasing the risk of relapse and admission to hospital. Our systematic review aimed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of psychosocial interventions to enhance antipsychotic medication adherence in young people with early psychosis. Methods: We reviewed studies using any experimental design of psychosocial interventions specifically focused on enhancing adherence with antipsychotic medication in young people with early psychosis. Cochrane CENTRAL Register, Medline, Embase, PsychINFO and CINAHL were searched on 19 November 2021 without time restriction. Studies were assessed for quality using the Effective Public Health Practice Project Quality Assessment Tool for Quantitative Studies. Results: Our initial search identified 3469 documents. Following title, abstract and full-text screening, we included three published studies and one unpublished experimental study that met our inclusion criteria. Outcome data were available for three studies that tested adherence–coping–education, adherence therapy, and a health dialogue intervention, all having a positive effect on medication adherence. None of the trials reported data on the safety of the experimental interventions. Conclusion: There is a paucity of evidence from high-quality randomized controlled trials that establish the safety and effectiveness of any type of psychosocial intervention to enhance medication adherence in young people with early psychosis. Further high-quality trials are warranted. This review was registered on the Open Science Framework prior to undertaking out initial searches. © 2022 by the authors.
