Teaching aims to introduce the learner to the realities of social and professional life. In the context of vocational education, these learning activities are confined to two interacting poles, namely learning in a school situation (simulation) and that in a clinical situation, that is to say next to the patient. The general objective of this study was to raise the awareness of nursing supervisors to improve the quality of the supervision they offer to trainee students in their professional circles in order to overcome this challenge. We used a prospective, cross-sectional descriptive study conducted at the university clinics in Lubumbashi. The study found that 54% of the trainees were female, 46% male; 47.3% were between 21 and 25 years old and 24.3% between 31 and 35 years of age; The attitude of the Trainees towards the trainee supervisors was distrustful in 36% of the cases and Positive in 27%; Indifferent in 26% of cases. In relation to the quality of the supervision, 38% of the students found this to be of poor quality and 39% said that the quality was good. The supervision of students seems to be a real challenge for all the care management of an institution and for the educational institution that sent these trainees. The commitment of all is necessary to carry out this mission of supervision of internstudents.

Introduction: Pregnancy is a special natural and physiological event that is not always normally and is responsible for morbidity and preventable mortality. Pregnancy risk is defined as one that is complicated by a factor or factors that negatively affect the outcome of pregnancy the mother’s side and/or perinatal. This study was assigned as targets to determine the risk pregnancy prevalence and the factors associated with these pregnancies. Materiel and Method: We conducted a cross-sectional descriptive study at the General Hospital Katuba in Lubumbashi for a period of three months from March to June 2017. Result: Our results showed that 11.5% of pregnancies were high risk and moderate in 21.6%. Overall, pregnancies were high or moderate risk of 33.1%. A proportion of 19.8% of new mothers were aged over 35 years and 3.4% were under 18 years. The average age was 28.8 ± 7.2 years. Age greater than 35 years, multi-parity, the high parity, the multigestity and the large multigestity were signifi-cantly associated with a risk pregnancy OR: 181 [43.08 to 762.99], OR 16.04 [6 , from 44 to 40.00] OR: 232.39 [58.60 to 971.36] OR: 5.15 [2.06 to 12.87] OR: 78.67 [25.77 to 240, 15. diabetes history OR = 6.32 [1.26 to 31.78], perinatal mortality (p = 0.006) and repeated abortions (p = 0.023) were also significantly related to a pregnancy at risk. Conclusion: A good support suitable or adequate based on risk could never be achieved without close collaboration between stakeholders and health professionals perinatal and follow the microscope stage of the support organization.

The WHO estimates that about 130 million children born each year worldwide, and about 4 million die during the neonatal period. Neonatal mortality remains until now a major public health problem in the world and is the socio-economic indicators of progress and health of a country by its frequency. This study aimed to identify risk factors of neonatal mortality through maternal and new-born characteristics susceptible to influence this last. We conducted a longitudinal study from January 1st to December 2014 based on data collected through a questionnaire developed for this purpose. This questionnaire was tested, standardized and administered in the maternity and neonatology service in the language spoken by the mother (Swahili or French). Results: Anemia and neonatal asphyxia were significantly associated with the occurrence of death with adjusted odds ratio of 34.570 respectively (CI: 5.633 to 212.149, 95%) and 7861 (CI: 2.017 to 30.644). The history of fetal deaths and HIV in mothers was also recognized as an explanatory factor for the occurrence of neonatal mortality. But it should be noted that the CPN followed and the history of genital bleeding in the first trimester of pregnancy have made protective factors for developing neonatal mortality with their respective adjusted OR of 0.169 (CI: 0.037 to 0.775, 95%) and 0.066 (CI: 0.005 to 0.906). Conclusion: To address this problem, the management of various risk factors that may influence the occurrence of neonatal mortality should be taken into account.

In developing countries or economies in transition, many people die because of lack of safe blood, even in some urban healthcare facilities. Blood transfusions can save lives and improve health, but millions of patients did not timely access to safe blood, due to no reliable blood donors. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of hepatitis B in blood donors from the Sendwe General Provincial Hospital. This is a retrospective cross-sectional descriptive study on serum markers of hepatitis B study taking place over a period of 12 months from 1 January to 31 December 2014. This study showed that the prevalence of hepatitis B was 6.8%, and 78.7% of donors were male. The mean age was 34.1 ± 7.4 years, ranging from 18 to 57 years. Married, family donors, blood type O and Rh positive were the most represented with 81.1%, 68.6%, 58.8% and 99.3% respectively. A significant association was observed between the prevalence of hepatitis B and age, civil status of blood donors (p ≤ 0.001). These results should encourage health authorities to the implementation of effective prevention methods to stop the rapid spread of this infection, which is a serious public health problem.

The use of plants in our immediate environment in primary health care in Africa and especially among the poor, is a very common practice. Our study aimed to determine the profile and frequency of pregnant using medicinal plants; and to identify medicinal plants most frequently used during pregnancy. We have done a descriptive cross-sectional study, conducted for up March 2014 to June 2014, on a sample of 400 pregnant women who consulted health centers of the city Kipushi during prenatal consultations. Of a total of 400 pregnant consulted during the investigation period, 30% or 7.5% used medicinal plants, 46.67% had an age between 26 and 30 years, the majority of pregnant or 56.67% had a secondary consideration; 13 pregnant using medicinal plants is 43.33% were multiparous pregnant while 10, 33.33% were large multiparous pregnant 12% or 40% were married and 9% or 30% of pregnant were single. The Birsocorpus orientaris was the most used plants in pregnant or 16.67% of pregnant monitoring and Uapaca kirkiana, Ficus capensis or 13.33% and 10% of these used the pregnant Thespesia garckeana, Hibiscus cannabinus or Liposes. These results provide the basis for subsequent studies to experimentally evaluate the potential of these plants. This will make available for women in labor, new substances of natural origin.

Maternal and child health is an important part in the health development plans in many countries. This descriptive study aimed to investigate the epidemiology of risk pregnancies managed at the provincial hospital Janson Sendwe. It was conducted from March 17 to July 15, 2015 to all pregnant women for childbirth consultant beyond 28 weeks of gestation and having at least one risk factor identified during antenatal care or a posteriori childbirth. On 535 women included in the study, we recorded 1667 risk factors in an average of 3.2 risk factors per woman. The three main risk factors were met by order of importance: the history of maternal infection (18.5%), the history of caesarean section (13.6%) and unexplained fetal or neonatal death antecedent (12.4%). The antecedent of uterine malformation (0.1%), the history of macrosomia (0.5%) and uterine height decreased (2.1%) were the least represented. It thus appears necessary to carefully monitor these women to avoid the occurrence of maternal mortality.

Objectives: The objective of this work was to analyze the etiologies of maternal deaths occurring in a tertiary hospital. Methodology: This is a descriptive cross-sectional study with retrospective data collection of maternal deaths that occurred in the reference provincial hospital Jason Sendwe from 2013 to 2015. All cases of maternal deaths in line with the definition of World Health Organization have been included. Data were analyzed by the software Epi info and Excel 2010 Results: Seventy seven (77) maternal deaths were identified during the study period. 74.03% of deaths occurred direct obstetric causes. Bleeding with 61.04% was the leading cause of maternal death followed by eclampsia (31.58%). Indirect causes were dominated by heart disease (30.0%). Note that 75.32% of deaths had occurred within 24 hours of admission. Conclusion: haemorrhage, eclampsia and infections are the main causes of maternal deaths in our study. The reduction of maternal deaths happens through access to emergency medication, transfusion and anesthetic and surgical teams in hospitals but also through the involvement of religious leaders, traditional and any community to better understand the population obstacles to reducing maternal mortality.
