国际皮肤性病学杂志(英文)【2020年第04期】

内容简介
International Journal of Dermatology and Vernereology(简称IJDV)于2018年创刊,是目前大陆地区第一本也是唯一的英文皮肤性病学期刊。IJDV旨在为皮肤性病学及相关领域的临床医生和研究人员提供一个国际性开放平台,促进本学科各个方向包括流行病、病因、诊断和治疗的全面交流。过去的几十年,国内皮肤性病学包括遗传学,流行病学等发展迅速,科研成果倍出,有国际学术交流的迫切需要,但令人遗憾的是,大陆地区没有一本自主产权的皮肤病学英文刊可以提供这样的平台。因此,中华医学会和中国医学科学院皮肤病医院(皮肤病研究所)联手将原来的中文刊《国际皮肤性病学杂志》改刊为全英文的IJDV。中华医学会是国内最大的医学组织,具有丰富的办刊经验和资源。皮肤病研究所是全国皮肤病和性病学专业机构,也是国家性病和麻风控制中心和WHO性传播疾病预防和控制合作中心。研究所具有国内皮肤病学最全面的亚学科,是国内皮肤性学学术和科研力量最强的研究机构之一。编辑部有丰富的办刊经验,出版《中华皮肤科杂志》在皮肤性病学影响因子排名第一。目前IJDV已经有了超过2万人的微信粉丝群并在持续增加,为其影响力的快速提升打下了良好的基础。IJDV正在和荷兰威科商谈合作出版,力争在3-5年内实现期刊的国际化。

资料简介

AbstractObjective:Health-care workers (HCWs) in Indonesia have been participating in the war against the coronavirus disease-2019 since March 2020. Ever since HCWs were exposed to the regular use of personal protective equipment (PPE) with varying levels and maintain hand hygiene more as recommended by the World Health Organization. Adverse skin reactions to PPE in Indonesia has yet to be acknowledged. This study aimed to study the prevalence and characteristics-, possible risk factors-, and suggest possible solutions towards adverse skin reactions to PPE among HCWs in a multi-center setting of Indonesia.Methods:A cross-sectional survey was conducted online among HCWs in the Siloam Hospitals Group of Banten province. HCWs of Banten Province were surveyed from June 1 to August 31, 2020. The data was obtained using avalidated online survey questionnaire including (1) demographic characteristics; (2) occupational-related characteristics; (3) adverse skin reactions.Results:A response rate of 40.2% was obtained and 200 valid respondents were yielded. The mean age of respondents was (26.94 ± 7.23) years old. Adverse skin reactions (66.5%) were reported primarily in female (73.7%) working as doctors (82.7%) of a non-referral center for coronavirus disease-2019 (60.2%) wearing level 2 and 3 PPE (43.6% and 37.6%, respectively). The cheeks and chin was the most common site involved (69.9%) with dryness/tightness (63.9%) and acne (77.4%) as the highest symptoms and signs reported. Sex, age group classification, level of PPE worn, hand hygiene frequency, and duration of PPE worn daily were factors considerably associated with adverse skin reactions to PPE (P < 0.05).Conclusions:Adverse skin reactions to PPE are common among HCWs in Indonesia. Comprehensive strengthening of the skin condition and awareness on adverse skin reactions should be advocated.
