Keywords : promosi kesihatan, pendidikan kesihatan, asap rokok sekunder, asap ketiga, kempen speak out

Abstract : Sokongan masyarakat menentukan kejayaan sesuatu kempen terutamanya kempen yang berkaitan dengan isu kesihatan. Tujuan utama kajian ini dijalankan adalah untuk mengenal pasti sokongan rakyat Malaysia terhadap Kempen Speak Out serta keberanian mereka untuk menegur perokok yang merokok di sekeliling mereka dan ahli keluarga mereka. Data diekstrak daripada Tinjauan Kementeria Kesihatan Malaysia (KKM) terhadap Kempen Speak Out Kebangsaan pada tahun 2019. Golongan dewasa berumur 18 tahun dan ke atas terlibat dalam kajian ini. Analisis khi kuasa dua dan binominal logistik regrasi dijalankan untuk mengkaji hubungan dan pengaruh antara keupayaan untuk menegur perokok dengan sosiodemografi, pendapat terhadap asap rokok bekas dan ketiga dan sokongan terhadap Kempen Speak Out. Daripada 3403 responden yang terlibat, 54.6% berani menegur perokok yang merokok di sekeliling mereka dan ahli keluarga mereka. Keputusan juga menunjukkan bahawa 94.5% responden menyokong kempen Speak Out. Umur, jenis pekerjaan, zon kediaman, status merokok, mempunyai ahli keluarga yang merokok, mempunyai ahli keluarga dan rakan yang merokok di dalam rumah, pendapat terhadap perokok ketiga, sokongan terhadap Kempen Speak Out dan sokongan perjanjian untuk menegur perokok yang asap di tempat awam mempunyai hubungan yang signifikan (k<.05) dengan keberanian menegur perokok. Walau bagaimanapun, analisis pengaruh menunjukkan bahawa pelajar universiti, golongan bukan perokok, tidak tinggal bersama perokok, tidak mengetahui bahaya atau asap rokok basi dan asap rokok tertier, tidak bersetuju dengan tindakan menegur perokok, tinggal di Pantai Timur Malaysia dan usia yang lebih muda tidak mempunyai keberanian untuk menegur perokok yang merokok disekeliling mereka. Kempen Speak Out yang telah diperkenalkan pada tahun 2019 telah mendapat sokongan yang baik daripada rakyat Malaysia dan telah diiktiraf oleh Pertubuhan Kesihatan Sedunia. Kajian ini membuktikan bahawa Kempen Speak Out adalah relevan untuk dijalankan pada masa kini dan dapatan kajian ini juga menekankan keperluan kajian masa depan yang memfokuskan kepada pengetahuan, sikap dan amalan terhadap asap rokok basi dan asap rokok tertier dalam kalangan rakyat Malaysia. Justeru itu, pihak KKM digesa untuk meneruskan kempen Speak Out ini dan menggembleng tenaga dan kepakaran daripada pelbagai pihak dalam usaha untuk mendidik masyarakat Malaysia melindungi diri dan keluarga mereka daripada bahaya asap rokok basi dan asap rokok tertier ini.

Mohd Dahlan A. Malek and Ida Shafinaz Mohamed Kamil

Volume : Vol 7

Publication Date : 2023-12-15

Keywords : Islam, psikologi. islamisasi ilmu pengetahuan, peranan universiti

Abstract : Majoriti sarjana Muslim yang prihatin dengan nasib komuniti Muslim (Ummah) telah terlibat secara mendalam dengan konsep Islamisasi ilmu pengetahuan yang mendapat momentum pada tahun 80-an sebagai hasil kesedaran global terhadap "kebangkitan Islam" pada tahun 70-an. Artikel ini melihat bagaimana kepercayaan, nilai, dan amalan budaya Islam mempengaruhi pemahaman mengenai kesihatan mental dan tingkah laku manusia. Perbincangan ini termasuk penerokaan mengenai impak prinsip-prinsip Islam terhadap kesejahteraan psikologi, seperti konsep Tawhid (keesaan Allah), Akhirah (hidup selepas mati), dan Qadar (takdir ilahi). Artikel ini juga membincangkan aspek praktikal penyatuan ajaran Islam dalam intervensi psikologi, menekankan peranan amalan Islam, termasuk solat, berpuasa, dan penglibatan komuniti, dalam meningkatkan kesejahteraan mental. Kepekaan budaya yang diperlukan dalam bekerja dengan populasi Muslim yang pelbagai ditekankan, kerana variasi wujud berdasarkan perbezaan kawasan, linguistik, dan budaya. Artikel ini membincangkan proses Islamisasi psikologi moden, di mana prinsip-prinsip Islam, nilai, dan konteks budaya berpadu dengan harmoni dengan kerangka psikologi kontemporari. Sebagai institusi pendidikan tertinggi, universiti dapat menyumbang peranan yang signifikan dalam meningkatkan proses Islamisasi psikologi moden yang akan menyokong usaha pembaharuan dan pembangunan ummah.

Sumitra Francis A/P Thilagaratnam dan Jasmine Adela Mutang

Volume : Vol 7

Publication Date : 2023-12-12

Keywords : burnout, mental health, job satisfaction, first responders, healthcare professionals

Abstract : This cross-sectional study aims to examine the relationship between burnout, mental health, and job satisfaction among 180 first responders in Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia, with a particular focus on healthcare professionals. Participants were recruited through a snowball sampling method from government and private healthcare facilities across seven districts in Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. Utilizing online surveys distributed through messaging platforms due to COVID-19 constraints, the study employed the Copenhagen Burnout Inventory (CBI), Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Scale (DASS-21), and Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) to collect data on burnout, mental health, and job satisfaction respectively. The results reveal significant negative correlations between burnout and job satisfaction, with personal and work-related burnout exhibiting significant associations. Mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and stress, are found to be moderately negatively correlated with job satisfaction. The study underscores the need for targeted interventions to address these challenges and enhance the well-being and job satisfaction of first responders. Despite limitations in participant selection and sample size, the findings contribute valuable insights and underscore the importance of comprehensive strategies for the support and satisfaction of first responders in high-stress environments.

Adeymend Reny Japil, Rissiusinah Muntik, Siti Nursyafiqah Shafiee, and Christabelle Jill Ellron

Volume : Vol 7

Publication Date : 2023-11-28

Keywords : mental well-being, positive mental health, psychometric, psychosocial well-being, structural equation modeling, undergraduate students

Abstract : The current study intended to validate the Mental Health Continuum-Short Form (MHC-SF) and Flourishing Scale (FS) in the Malay language. The scales of MHC-SF and FS are used to measure emotional, social, and psychological well- being. Both instruments have been employed in assessing the flourishing mental health and positive human functioning of university students. A total of 131 undergraduate students (29 males and 102 females) from a public university in Sabah aged 19-26 years old participated in the study. Partial least squares-structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) is used to generate the result of the measurement model. The findings showed that the MHC-SF and FS in the Malay language demonstrated sufficient convergent and discriminant validity. The level of internal consistency for MHC-SF and FS was at an acceptable level. Both Malay versions of MHC-SF and FS have been proven as valid and reliable instruments to be used in the contexts of public undergraduate students in Malaysia, particularly in the state of Sabah.

Volume : vol 6

Publication Date : 2022-12-31

Keywords : Pengurusan emosi, kehilangan ahli keluarga, pandemik COVID-19

Abstract : Dunia telah dikejutkan dengan satu musibah yang besar iaitu pandemik COVID-19. Melalui statistik yang dikeluarkan oleh Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia sehingga 06 Januari 2021 seramai 125, 438 (3.59%) individu yang dijangkiti COVID-19 manakala seramai 513 individu yang menjadi korban kepada wabak ini.

Di Malaysia, wabak COVID-19 telah memberi kesan yang sangat besar terutamanya kepada sistem politik, ekonomi, sosial, kesihatan, dan pendidikan negara. Bahkan impaknya juga turut melibatkan aspek emosi setiap individu. Rentetan penularan wabak tersebut, bermula 18 Mac 2020, kerajaan Malaysia telah mengumumkan pelaksanaan Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan (PKP). Pelaksanaan PKP bertujuan untuk membuat penjarakan sosial agar dapat memutuskan rantaian wabak. Namun begitu, pelaksanan PKP tersebut telah menjejaskan emosi hampir keseluruhan rakyat kerana sepanjang tempoh PKP ada yang tinggal berseorangan ataupun jauh dari keluarga dan tidak dapat bertemu dengan keluarga dalam masa yang agak panjang sedangkan waktu begini sokongan sesama keluarga amat diperlukan. Emosi mereka terjejas apabila ada pula ahli keluarga yang disahkan positif COVID-19, kematian akibat COVID-19 dan ahli keluarga tidak dapat menatap jenazah ahli keluarga mereka buat kali terakhir serta tidak dapat menguruskan pengebumian ahli keluarga yang meninggal akibat semasa (PKP). Perkara ini menambahkan lagi gangguan emosi mereka .Ini memerlukan pengurusan emosi yang efektif.

Hajah Siti Rafidah Binti Haji Md Said

Volume : vol 6

Publication Date : 2022-12-31

Keywords : spiritual intelligence, Self-Report Inventory, Brunei’s teacher, reliability

Abstract : Spiritual intelligence (SQ) promotes better health behaviour and quality of life. At work, those with a higher level of spirituality live longer, happier, satisfied with their job, and more productive lives. In the pursuit of holistic education, the role of SQ in shaping teachers’ well-being and effectiveness has gained recognition worldwide. However, evaluating the reliability and validity of assessment instruments within specific cultural contexts is essential. The researcher delves into a pilot study conducted in Brunei in this article. It focuses on the reliability of a Spiritual Intelligence Self-Report Inventory Instrument (SISRI-24) developed by King (2008) and tailored to Brunei's teachers. The scale was initially developed and validated in Canada. The pilot study employed quantitative data collection and data analysis. A sample of 116 teachers from various schools in Brunei voluntarily participated in the study. According to the results, the overall reliability value was 0.832. Based on these findings, the SISRI-24 questionnaires have a high-reliability level. It is suitable to use among teachers in Brunei.

Investigating the interactional effects of socio- demographic factors and sleep quality on academic achievement among Malaysian undergraduate students

Mazni Mustapha, Thurgha A/P Ramasamy, and Noorma Razali

Volume : vol 6

Publication Date : 2022-12-31

Keywords : sleep quality, socio-demographic factors, Malaysian undergraduate students, academic performance

Abstract : Sleep is one of the vital aspects of our life. Its importance however, often receives a lack of attention especially amongst university students who would commonly replace some hours of night sleep with alternative activities. Whilst most studies have reported that sleep disturbances could bring harm to a person’s life, there is still a lack of studies that examine the interaction effects of socio-demographic factors and sleep quality on academic achievement. Hence, this study aimed to identify: (1) the relationship between sleep quality and academic performance based on the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of university students, (2) differences in the academic performance of these students based on their study programmes, year of study, gender, ethnicities and quality of sleep, and (3) the interaction effects of these demographic variables and quality of sleep on the students’ academic performance. A sample of 107 undergraduate students from a public university in Sabah, Malaysia, voluntarily participated in this study by completing a set of questionnaires. The results revealed a positive correlation between sleep quality and academic performance. Those who were ‘good- sleepers’ showed the tendency of low academic achievement when they reached senior year, whilst ‘poor-sleepers’ were more likely to have higher academic achievement at the later year of studying. The findings imply that having a ‘high quality of longer waking hours’ in fulfilling academic commitments is probably a worthwhile effort in maintaining good grades during the final year of studying. The findings support the social learning theory that a person could alter his behaviour in order to fit with the demands of the environment.
