Aksaray University Journal of Science and Engineering , 2017, DOI: -
Abstract: There are widely different characteristics in the literature, as well as common features related to the concept of quality of life. In urban life, the quality of life is determined by the interaction of social, economic and physical environment and is directly related to the practices of central and local decision makers. Today, through the state and municipalities, social housing is being produced to solve low-income families' housing problems and to improve the quality of life in general. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of the housing production based on the slum dwelling on the quality of life of households. A total of 506 surveys were conducted in 3 districts to assess the quality of life of residents in ?stanbul. Accordingly, living situation (individual well-being, quality of life), physical (housing, shelter), environment (habitat, urban infrastructure), social (neighbourhood relations, family relations), economic (business, employment, income, indebtedness), access to services (transportation, municipal services) and 7 indicators, including general factors of life quality were identified. As a result of this study, the improvement of the quality of life of displaced slum dwellers and the improvement of the communication and communication ways of slum dwellers and decision makers are proposed.

Türkiye Fiziksel Tip ve Rehabilitasyon Dergisi , 2008,
Abstract: Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is chronic inflammatory arthropathy of peripheral joints, spine and enthesis. In the past, it was considered that PsA progresses mildly compared to Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). However in last 20 years, it was seen that PsA progresses more aggressive than as considered before and continuous treatment is recommended instead of cyclic or intermittant treatment. In the patients with mild or moderate symptoms without signs of progressive joint destruction, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory (NSAI) drugs must be selected at first step. In the patients who don’t respond to NSAI drugs and in which the disease progresses, disease modifying drugs as methotrexate, sulphasalazine, leflunomide, cyclosprine are used. After the effect of TNF-a antagonists (etanercept, infliximab, adalimumab) was seen in RA, the effect of these agents in PsA was studied and dramatic improvements were observed in all aspects of the disease (skin, joints, enthesis) and they are used in the treatment of PsA.

Validity and reliability of Turkish version of "Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture" and perception of patient safety in public hospitals in Turkey
Said Bodur, Emel Filiz
BMC Health Services Research , 2010, DOI: 10.1186/1472-6963-10-28
Abstract: Physicians and nurses working in all public hospitals in Konya, a large city in Turkey, were asked to complete a self-administrated patient safety culture survey (n = 309). Data collection was carried out using the Turkish version of HSOPS, developed by Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Data were summarized as percentages, means, and SD values. Factor analysis, correlation coefficient, Cronbach's alpha, ANOVA, and t tests were employed in statistical analyses. Items on patient safety were categorized into 10 factors. Factor loadings and internal consistencies of dimension items were high.Most of the scores related to dimensions, and the overall patient safety score (44%) were lower than the benchmark score. "Teamwork within hospital units" received the highest score (70%), and the lowest score belonged to the "frequency of events reported" (15%). The study revealed that more than three quarters of the physicians and nurses were not reporting errors.The Turkish version of HSOPS was found to be valid and reliable in determining patient safety culture. This tool will be helpful in tracking improvements and in heightening awareness on patient safety culture in Turkey.Patient safety is an important healthcare issue in all countries, rich or poor. There are no data, staff notes, or research related to the safety of patients in Turkey except for a committee on infections in public hospitals. After this study has been completed, the Ministry of Health declared a series of suggestions intended to improve patient and staff safety. This topic is still in its infancy in Turkey; the history of national congresses and symposiums on patient safety dates back only two years prior to this study. State institutions provide Ninety-three percent of all healthcare services in Turkey. Ongoing challenges at state hospitals include lack of primary staff (i.e., physicians and nurses), heavy patient load, and inadequate physical infrastructure. Furthermore, oversight for saf
Application of Bayes Theorem in genetic counseling
Demirel, S.,Bodur, S.
Erciyes Medical Journal , 2004,
Abstract: The authors aimed to show the application of the principles of Bayes theorem for calculation of carrier risks in single-gene disorders. Bayes theorem gives an opportunity for the use of family history and also the use of all present information in diagnosis. It is highly suitable for clinical application because its use is independent of the study’s designs. The theorem allows the analysis of risk factors in early diagnosis by using computer systems. Bayes theorem supplies the quick combination of the correct information to find out the closest probability in the calculation of re-occurrence of genetic diseases.
Evaluation of Factors Having Impact on Tax Compliance as Regards to Taxpayers: Application for the City of Kars  [PDF]

Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2016.48010
Abstract: Tax means money taken from taxpayers by the state as obligatory and originating from the institution. Especially in countries like Turkey where an important part of income is generated from taxes, this resource is an irreplaceable finance tool. While the state uses this right arising from the constitution and the law, they must also act in accordance with the taxation principles as defined by the constitution and the law. There is also a special need to act in a sensitive way to ensure justice of taxation. Because taxpayers, who are the other parties related with taxation, won’t participate in tax issues voluntarily if they come to believe that taxation is not being done in accordance with principles of justice and equity. As the tax compliance improves, the transactions related with taxation will be performed in a less problematic way. In this respect, the factors which have an impact on the tax compliance of taxpayers as voluntarily have been determined with this study by conducting area analysis. As a result of research made, it is seen that factors like gender, marital status, age, income level, and education cause different attitudes and behaviors as regards to tax approach.

Abstract: Wrist, ankle and breast involvement were detected in the same patient. Mycobacterium tuberculosis was isolated from both synovial and breast biopsy specimen cultures.In general, tuberculosis arthritis is a frequently missed diagnosis, especially in different clinical patterns. A high level of suspicion is required particularly in high-risk populations and endemic areas.Today, tuberculosis (TB) remains as a major public health problem in the world. According to the World Health Organization, 10 million new cases of active TB occur each year worldwide [1]. HIV infection, chronic diseases, malignancy, transplantation and other immunosuppressive conditions, aging, and resistant strains lead to increase of TB patients [2,3]. In these groups, tuberculosis may present atypically and sometimes with predominant extrapulmonary manifestations that result in delays in diagnosis and treatment [1].In the past decade, there has been a significant rise in the prevalence of tuberculosis as well as an increase in the extrapulmonary and osteoarticular manifestations worldwide [4]. Osteoarticular infection makes up about 1–5% of the cases, and 7–15% of the extrapulmonary cases. In about 50% of these cases pulmonary involvement can't be detected [5]. TB arthritis is a repeatedly missed diagnosis mostly in different clinical patterns when diagnosis is delayed.Here, we are presenting an unusual multifocal extrapulmonary TB case.A 40 years old female patient was admitted with chronic arthritis. Her complaints have begun with swelling and pain on left wrist, eight years ago. At the peak stage of her complaints, restriction of motion developed and white coloured pus drained from volar site of the left hand. She had swelling and pain at her left ankle a year ago. Six months ago her left ankle was twisted. As a consequence, she had difficulty in walking. She did not define fever. She had night sweats during the last 4 months. Additionally, she detected a mass at her left breast 3 moths ago. In

TAF Preventive Medicine Bulletin , 2009,
Abstract: AIM: This study was aimed to determine effect of education on anxiety level in the parents with mentally handicapped children. METHOD: The quasi-experimental field study was performed on parents of 91 mentally handicapped children who are between 6-15 ages and live in the center of Karaman. State and Trait Anxiety Scale was applied before and after informing. RESULTS: Average age of mothers was 36.5±7.2, average state anxiety point was 47.2±13.4 and average trait anxiety point was 51.9±10.1; their father s average age was 40.2±8.6, average state anxiety point was 35.9±6.5 and average trait anxiety point was 41.3±6.2. Anxiety points of mothers are higher. Mothers who are graduated from primary school, younger than 35 age, have a boy or child younger than 12 age, have social assurance, do not take institutional service, have low family income, and whose first or last child is mentally handicapped, whose husband do not help with caring child have significant decrease in anxiety points after informing. In the fathers, only a decrease in the trait anxiety level was significant. CONCLUSION: Education decreases the parents anxiety level. Institutional services have to contain all of the mentally handicapped children and should be educated the parents by nurses periodically to decrease their anxiety.
