Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a global issue and its risk factors differ between races and countries. The increase in incidence of CKD in the last decade attributes to the lifestyle changes which need to be identified. It is worth understanding the risk factors in India where there is diversity in the income, food, cultural traditions and lifestyle habits. This “case control study to assess the risk factors of chronic kidney disease among adults” was conducted among 200 subjects with the objectives to identify the risk factors of chronic kidney disease and to estimate the exposure to risk factors among patients with and without chronic kidney disease using retrospective survey design. The data were collected using a structured questionnaire and analysed using Odd’s ratio (OR). The findings show that age (OR-2.6675, CI-95%, 1.443-4.957) and family history of CKD (OR-4.846, CI-95%, 1.020-23.0228) were the non-modifiable risk factors. Co-morbidities like hypertension (OR-18.971, CI-95%, 9.235-38.969), diabetes mellitus (OR- 3.618, CI-95%, 2.017-6.490), coronary artery disease (OR-11.821, CI-95%, 4-34.933), urinary tract infections (OR-5.664, CI-95%, 2.460-13.043) and use of analgesics (OR-6, CI-95%, 2.186-16.467) were major modifiable risk factors. Modifiable risk factors play an important role in the development of CKD. So screening the patients at risk for CKD should be emphasized and treating the modifiable risk factors at an early stage will help to reduce the incidence and or progression of the disease. Prevention and control should also focus on the life style habits.

Objective: The study was conducted with the aim to determine the taste alteration (TA) and its relation with quality of life (QOL) of patients receiving chemotherapy. Methods: The present study was undertaken among 100 patients receiving cancer chemotherapy with the aim of identifying the commonly experienced TA and its relation with QOL of the patients. The patients were selected by convenience sampling from a selected Cancer Institute in Kerala. Results: The study reported that TA was present in all the patients receiving chemotherapy ranging from mild to severe where 50% had moderate and 9% had severe alteration in taste. There were 19% patients who had poor and 45% who had average QOL. The TAs had a moderately negative correlation with QOL (r=−0.51) indicating that an increase in TA decreases the QOL. Conclusion: The study evinces that TA is a common side effect of chemotherapy which often impacts the QOL negatively. Hence, it is essential to understand the types of TA and the specific drug causing it. This will enable the health-care team members to develop treatments for these conditions and educate patients regarding the strategies to be adopted to manage the problem, thereby improving patients’ QOL. Keywords: Chemotherapy, Taste alterations, Quality of life, Chemotherapy-induced taste alteration scale, Side effects of chemotherapy

The present study was conducted among colorectal cancer patients to assess the risk factors and its awareness among patients with colorectal cancer. The objectives of the study were to estimate the presence of risk factors among patients with colorectal cancer, determine the knowledge of risk factors among patients with colorectal cancer, and find the association between the risk factors and selected variables.

The findings revealed that majority of the subjects having colorectal cancer were >50 years (62%) and were males(60%) . Majority of the subjects had comorbidities like hypertension 17(34%), and diabetic mellitus 16(32%). Seventeen(34%) subjects had the habit of smoking and alcoholism. Majority of the subjects 45(90%) were non vegetarians 47(94%) included vegetarians diet and 30(66.7%) of the non-vegetarians were consuming red meat once a week. There were 14(28%) subjects who did not perform any exercises. Only 24(48%) of the subjects had good knowledge about colorectal cancer but none of the subjects had poor knowledge. No Significant association was observed between risk factors and selected variables.

Study regarding awareness on procurement, storage and handling of organs for transplantation among the students of nursing programmes, a descriptive study was conducted with the objectives to 1) determine the level of awareness of students regarding procurement, storage and handling of organs for transplantation, 2) find the association between level of awareness and selected variables and 3) prepare an information booklet on procurement, storage and handling of organs for transplantation. Data were collected from 60 Undergraduate and Post- Graduate nursing students selected by disproportionate stratified random sampling using a structured knowledge questionnaire. Level of awareness was categorized as poor, average and good. Data were analyzed using frequency, percentage and chi- squares. The study results indicate that majority (33, 55%) of the students had average level of awareness and none had good level of awareness. The mean awareness score was 10.3 against the maximum score of 31. Procurement (77%) and storage of the organs (70%) were the major areas of poor awareness. The Post-Graduate [MSc (N)] students had better knowledge followed by Post Basic B Sc (N). Steady increase in level of knowledge was observed in the Undergraduate programme where 60% fourth year students had average level of awareness followed by II and III year BSc (N) with 27%. Out of the 60 students only (37%) were willing to donate their organs while they are alive, but majority (90%) were willing to donate their organs after death. No association was found between level of awareness and selected variables (p>0.05). The findings of the study suggest the need for awareness regarding different aspects of organ donation.

Problems with personal relationship (76.7%), body image disturbance (76.7%), constipation (63.3%), foul smelling urine (26.7%) and infection (20%) were the major problems faced by the patients with ileal conduit. The study report that the self–instructional module is an effective means to improve the knowledge and useful as subjects could read and clear their doubt at their own pace.

Methodology: A quantitative approach, descriptive correlational design, among 90 nursing students who were selected by stratified random sampling technique and the data were collected using an Emotional intelligence questionnaire. Results:Overall academic performance has a positive correlation between adaptability(0.540), achievement (0.539), conflict management (0.549), teamwork and collaboration (0.553), influence (0.660). Correlation between the emotional intelligence and academic performance during higher secondary level of the students shows a significant positive correlation in the ability to adapt (r=0.500) and achievement (r=0.508). Correlation between the emotional intelligence and academic performance during the previous year of the nursing students shows a significant positive correlation in the area of conflict management (r=0.544). The association between emotional intelligence and socio demographic variables shows that except gender (p>0.05), none of the variables are associated with EQ and in regard of academic performance, it has no association with any of the socio demographic variables (p>0.05). Conclusions: Nursing students who were more emotionally intelligent performed better in both the continuous assessments and the final professional examination. Therefore, it is possible that emotional skill development may enhance nursing students' academic performance.

Effectiveness of structured teaching program on knowledge regarding prevention of urinary tract infection was conducted among 119 adolescent girls (experimental 56 and control 63) using quantitative pre test-post test control group design. Subjects were selected by one stage cluster sampling. Data were collected using structured uestionnaire.

Amount of water intake per day, voiding habits and hygienic practice during menstruation were the main contributing factors identified in the study population. Knowledge was significantly associated with the contributing factors of urinary tract infection like frequency of voiding during school hours (χ2 (1)= 12.930, p<0.05), voiding in unclean toilet (χ2 (1)=12.296, p<0.05), taking bath during menstruation (χ2 (1)= 5.761, p<0.05) and cleaning genitalia during enstruation (χ2 (1)= 4.145, p<0.05).
