Nothing can be compared with education. Education in this context is not limited to western education alone which many people erroneously believe should be gained before one can answer the appellation of being educated. This is not underscoring the importance of western education though but highlighting the importance of other forms of education such as Islamic education and cultural education which are being relegated to the background. In the same vein, Islamic ethics and values are not like the situation in the west where distinct lines are drawn between religion, politics and morals. Islam as a way of life gives the adherents ethical norms and values to guide and control the entire gamut of mans life. It gives a comprehensive code of behaviour for the individual and guides him to the highest possible moral excellence. It also gives ethical principles on which the edifice of a truly righteous society can be built. This paper examines the importance of Islamic education and some of its ethics viz a viz the theatre in an Anglophone country like Nigeria and submit that theatre remains one of the most vibrant techniques that can be employed for widespread of Islamic education and its ethics in Nigeria.

Theatre for Development: A pragmatic approach to incursion of Lassa Fever in NigeriaPDF

Nasir, Taofiq Olaide (Ph.D)

Several researches have been conducted into topical diseases affecting human beings through Theatre for Development, such includes Hiv/Aids which was given global attention and sufficient funding from various agencies. Some disease however known to be silent killers have suffered both artistic and scholastic attention from theatre practitioners and inadequate funding as well. Such includes Lassa haemorrhagic fever which is a zoonotic disease. Research reveals that illiteracy contributes largely to its spread. Adopting Mezirow’s theory of Transformative Learning as a theoretical springboard and using pre-test-post-test quasi experimental design, this paper discovers the importance of Theatre for Development as a vital tool of information dissemination, entertainment, and education not only for rural dwellers but elites as well. It hereby recommends the adoption of Theatre for Development in information dissemination, career building, confidence building, and decision making. It is recommended that Theatre for Development should be encouraged by the government agencies and other stakeholders as it has proved to be a viable and essential tool in community development.

School timetabling is an important operational problem in many high schools. It is a classical combinatorial optimization problem, proved to be NP-hard. For this reason, extensive research has been carried out on automated high school timetabling in the past 59 years. This research ranges from theoretical investigations and surveys to case studies in specific schools from different countries. Investigation into these case studies demonstrates that school timetabling problems change from one country to another based on different educational systems and philosophies. Design and implementation of algorithms that can deal with this variety of constraints and objectives is a great challenge. Hence, several innovative algorithmic approaches and techniques including hybrids that promise solutions of high quality have been proposed to solve it. In this article several algorithmic approaches and techniques for this problem is overviewed. In addition to this, the article provides an up-to-date survey of the existing literature revealing the current state-of-art approaches and indicates future directions of research in this field for not only those who are working in this field but also for those who might wish to exploit this new methodology.

Background: Team-based learning is emerging as a strategy for enhancing learning in nurse education due to the promotion of individual learning as well as learning in teams. Most studies on the effects of active and passive methods of teaching, have considered learning variable as independent variable and the emphasis is on learning and academic achievement of students, however, less attention has been paid to the effects of active techniques on classroom environment. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of team-based learning techniques on nursing students’ knowledge and satisfaction level. This study will provide evidence that team-based learning does have a positive effect on nursing students’ knowledge and satisfaction level. Objective: -To assess the accountability of team- based learning on nursing students. -To assess the satisfaction level of nursing students towards team based learning. -To assess the preference in nursing students about TBL. Methodology: This research was quantitative & cross sectional; structured questionnaire was the tool. The TBL intervention was offered to 50 Post RN (BSN) students of School of Nursing, Madinah Teaching Hospital Faisalabad. Results: Team-based learning is emerging as a strategy for enhancing learning in nurse education due to the promotion of individual learning as well as learning in teams. Most studies on the effects of active and passive methods of teaching, have considered learning variable as independent variable and the emphasis is on learning and academic achievement of students, however, less attention has been paid to the effects of active techniques on classroom environment. Conclusion: The TBL is recommended as a highly interactive method for nursing curricula.

Background: Basic life support (BLS) is the the foundation for saving lives after sudden cardiac arrest. Every year thousands of people are died due to sudden cardiac arrest. In that critical situation until the trained medical help arrive, knowledge and practice of BLS/ CPR increase the survival chance of the victim. In cardiac arrest most of the victims don’t received effective resuscitation that reduce the survival chance. That’s way its compulsory for all health providers they have enough knowledge about BLS. Objective: The present study is designed to assess the knowledge and practice of nurses regarding basic life support at Allied Hospital Faisalabad. Method: After approval from institution and taking informed consent from participants. To assess the knowledge and practice of nurses used a structured questionnaire consisting on 22 questions based on demographic data, knowledge and practice of participants.. For statistical analysis used the SPSS (20 version). Results: Results shows the insufficient knowledge and poor practice of participants regarding BLS. Only (34%) participants have sufficient knowledge, (66%) have insufficient knowledge and (48%) participants have good practice, (52%) have poor practice about BLS. Conclusion: Overall knowledge and practice of nurses regarding BLS/CPR are inefficient and poor. They must need a designed guidelines regarding BLS/CPR training and refresh courses during services.

In most cultures for North Africa, the Middle East and West Asia, consanguine marriage is common and respected. The offspring of consanguineous marriages may be at higher risk for recessive disorders, despite the presence of autosomal recessive gene mutations acquired from the common ancestor. One such disorder is microcephaly. A severe neurogenetic mitosis syndrome marked by decreased head circumference with various levels of mental retardation at birth is autosomal Recessive Primary Microcephaly (MCM). The reduced brain size of MCH patients decreased to almost one third of their original volume due to the small number of cortical neurons generated in the embryonic neurogenesis. The present study was conducted to investigate the prevalence of microcephaly among central Punjab (Pakistan) families due to consanguineous marriages and the role of the WDR62 gene in the prevalence of microcephaly among these families, as well as to provide genetic counseling to such families. A family history study was conducted and blood samples were obtained for genetic analysis. Mutation of the WDR62 gene was investigated by PCR and agarose gel electrophoresis. Results indicated that the rate of microcephaly increases in consanguineous marriages generation after generation. The DNA amplification and electrophoresis results indicated the involvement of the WDR62 gene mutation in three microcephalic-affected families. It is concluded that consanguineous marriages increase the rate of microcephaly and it is also concluded that the WDR62 gene is associated with the prevalence of microcephaly among the majority of Central Punjab (Pakistan) families.

Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and the Health Challenges in North-eastern Nigeria, 1999-2014PDF

Paul, Ilesanmi Akanmidu Ph.D.

The period between 1999 and 2014 was regarded as turbulent years in the chequered political history of Nigeria. It saw the emergence of Boko Haram insurgency that displaced thousands of people from their native homes to become Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in North-eastern Nigeria. Other researchers and commentators have evaluated the environmental conditions and economic challenges the displaced persons experienced during the period but not much attention was focused on the health challenges. This study therefore uses historical framework of analysis to explore the healthcare related matters and challenges the displaced persons witnessed despite the efforts and interventions of the Federal and State governments in conjunction with the non-governmental and international organizations.
