This study showed that the level of knowledge regarding the prevention of respiratory problems among the traffic police was comparatively higher than the level of practice
. Similar results were obtained in a study done in India; the level of knowledge was found to be better in majority of traffic police while the level of practice
was average .
Results also indicated that both the estimated level of importance and the level of practice
were high only for personal competencies.
Correlations of level of knowledge to level of attitude, level of knowledge to level of practice
and level of attitude to level of practice
were all highly statistically significant in our study whereas according to another research dissertation by Truong CD from Vietnam, positive correlation was found to be statistically significant between Knowledge and Attitude, and Attitude and Practice.24 In another research thesis by Norkaew MS from Thailand, positive correlation was found to be statistically significant between Knowledge and Attitude, Attitude and Practice and knowledge and Practice.25
Table 8 shows that the level of practice
is very high in the real estate sector of facilities management services, followed by mechanical/electrical repair services and information technology in that order.
In order to provide consistency and public assurance, national curriculum frameworks have been developed and implemented for practitioners taking up prospective posts at a higher level of practice
within the perioperative environment.
Figure 1 shows the mean scores for level of practice
in the 10 essential services for all respondents.
* systems for documenting continued competence and re-certification would be available at each level of practice
In addition the 2006 survey demonstrated that there was confusion between requirements for NCNZ audit and requirements for PDRP, with many respondents unclear about the requirement difference between a competency audit (NCNZ) and a level of practice
programme (PDRP) facilitated by the organisation.
This comprehensive text provides a united network of interrelated principles to systematically guide perioperative activities according to what AORN believes to be an optimal level of practice
. Newly revised for the 1999 edition are recommended practices on surgical attire, high-level disinfection, endoscopic minimally invasive surgery, surgical hand scrubs, the pneumatic tourniquet, standard and transmission-based precautions, and surgical tissue banking.
