[Attitudes to starting a family among students at Semmelweis University Faculty of Health Sciences]

VÁCZI Anna, FEITH Helga Judit, SOÓSNÉ Kiss Zsuzsanna, NÉMETHNÉ Gradvohl Edina, FARKAS Boglárka

[Aim of the study: To assess the willingness of students at the Faculty of Health Sciences of Semmelweis University, with respect to the preferred number of children and the planned date of the first birth. To gain an understanding of student attitudes in relation to motherhood and the role of the woman and the relevance of the traditional family model today. Further, to examine the differences in responses from students of the three specialist areas. Methodology and sample: The authors conducted the quantitative sociological survey, based on a self-completion questionnaire, among 2nd, 3rd and 4th year student nurses, student midwifes and student health visitors at the Semmelweis University Faculty of Health Sciences. The results were analysed with the SPSS 19.0 program, using a descriptive statistical method. The proportion of useful responses to the questionnaire was 94.1% (N=257). Results: The majority of the students planned to have children, at an average age of 26.5. The preferred number of children was two or three in most cases. The majority would like to start a family when married, and regard the daily caring for children as mainly the woman’s task, which shows support for the traditional family model. In their present/future circumstances, health visitors expressed a preference for motherhood in the highest numbers, and nurses in the lowest numbers (p=0.,012). Conclusions: The student nurses, midwives and health visitors at the Faculty of Health Sciences clearly plan to start families in the future. They have a traditional attitude towards the maternal role, but putting these ideas into practice is made more difficult by their paramedical vocation. Nurses and midwives, in particular, are in danger of a conflict of roles in their future lives, for reasons such as the shift working and secondary jobs. ]

However when the history of this ancestral dance is studied, it can be seen, that certain movements are applied in healing, furthermore it is employed in some oriental countries until nowadays. Women patients with cancer diseases are suffering both from physical damage and psychical trauma after a resective surgery. Their self-image and self-respect are disturbed, which in several cases leads to isolation, social segregation and at last to disability. Based on literary data cancer caused disability shows an intensely increasing tendency. As an own initiation Százszorszép Hastáncklub (Moonflower Belly Dance Club) hase been established in 2005, which is developed to an ocological rehabilitation method. This method integrates the elements of movement, music andd dance therapie. In addition, it provides a supportive community to the companions. Our examinations confirmed the efficiency of the method.

[Accident prevention and first aid knowledge among kindergarten children’s parents]

BÁNFAI Bálint, RADNAI Balázs, MARTON József, PÉK Emese, DEUTSCH Krisztina, BETLEHEM József

[INTRODUCTION - Based on statistics, accidents from various mechanisms are among the most common causes of death all over the world. Children are mostly affected in this situations. Our aim was to examine the first aid and accident prevention knowledge and attitude of the parents. PATIENTS AND METHODS - In this study parents of 3-7 years old children were involved in six kindergarten located in Hungary. A self-fill-in questionnaire was used to collect data. In the investigation 307 parents (N=307) were included. Out of them 234 respondents filled out the questionnaire correctly. The statistical analysis was made with SPSS 20.0 statistical software. For analyses deescriptive statistics, Chisquare- test and ANOVA were used. RESULTS - Three-quarters of the children have suffered at least one accident earlier (74.3%). Most of the accidents occured at home (88.5%). 174 parents attended first aid course earlier (74.4%), the previous knowledge is based mainly on the driving license (81.6%). Based on the answers it is important to teach children first aid (70.5%) and prevention (89.7%) knowledge in the kindergarten. There were only 10 parents, who answered all the situation questions correctly (4.3%). Between the subjective judgment of the financial status and the correct answers we found a significant correlation (p=0.03). The previously accomplished first aid training (p<0.05) and the educational attainment (p=0,029) had a positive impact on the results. CONCLUSION - The level of first aid knowledge of parents is lower than expected. Participate in first aid courses the level of knowledge could increase. It would be important, because some of the accidents can be prevented by acquiring proper knowledge.]

[The connection between the socioeconomic status and stroke in Budapest]

VASTAGH Ildikó, SZŐCS Ildikó, OBERFRANK Ferenc, AJTAY András, BERECZKI Dániel

[The well-known gap bet­ween stroke mortality of Eastern and Western Euro­pean countries may reflect the effect of socioeconomic diffe­rences. Such a gap may be present between neighborhoods of different wealth within one city. We set forth to compare age distribution, incidence, case fatality, mortality, and risk factor profile of stroke patients of the poorest (District 8) and wealthiest (District 12) districts of Budapest. We synthesize the results of our former comparative epidemiological investigations focusing on the association of socioeconomic background and features of stroke in two districts of the capital city of Hungary. The “Budapest District 8–12 project” pointed out the younger age of stroke patients of the poorer district, and established that the prevalence of smoking, alcohol-consumption, and untreated hypertension is also higher in District 8. The “Six Years in Two Districts” project involving 4779 patients with a 10-year follow-up revealed higher incidence, case fatality and mortality of stroke in the less wealthy district. The younger patients of the poorer region show higher risk-factor prevalence, die younger and their fatality grows faster during long-term follow-up. The higher prevalence of risk factors and the higher fatality of the younger age groups in the socioeconomically deprived district reflect the higher vulnerability of the population in District 8. The missing link between poverty and stroke outcome seems to be lifestyle risk-factors and lack of adherence to primary preventive efforts. Public health campaigns on stroke prevention should focus on the young generation of socioeconomi­cally deprived neighborhoods. ]
