The study had three processes. Firstly, the development of the draft of standards and indicators for the evaluation of the Community COVID Care Center by reviewing the existing standards/criteria, conducting participatory action approaches for establishing the standards/indicators/criteria among stakeholders for use in Tak Province. Secondly, the evaluation of these established standards/indicators/criteria by expert judgment approaches. Thirdly, the evaluation of the final standards, indicators, and criteria for 18 Community COVID Care Centers in Tak Province.</p> <p><br />The indicators for Community COVID Care Center standards that were developed consisted of 68 indicators, of which 25 were for evaluating the structure of COVID Care Center, 36 for evaluating the process of COVID Care Center, and 7 for evaluating the outcome. The opinion of evaluators was at the highest level for the accuracy, appropriateness, and utility of the standards and at a high level for the feasibility. Of 18 Community COVID Care Centers evaluated in the province, 13 (72.2%) had percentage of evaluation scores of 60.0-69.9, 2 (11.1%) had 70.0-79.9, 2 (11.1%) had ≥ 80.0 and 1 (5.6%) had ≥ 90.0. These findings indicated room for improvement of Community COVID Care Center to achieve efficient services in the province.</p> kittiphat iemrod Supaporn Banyati Somruedee Apima Thitiporn Jatupornpipat Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Public Health Naresuan University http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2022-04-28 2022-04-28 4 1 18 35 Factors affected to sleep quality among undergraduate students Naresuan University https://he01.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/JPHNU/article/view/253766 <p>This descriptive cross-sectional study aimed to 1) study sleep quality, 2) identify factors affecting sleep quality, and 3) compare the sleep quality of undergraduate students between three major groups. Data were collected from 420 undergraduate students at Naresuan University. The research instrument was a questionnaire that included 4 parts as follows: 1) demographic data; 2) sleep disturbance factors; 3) stress test (SPST-20) and, 4) Pittsburgh's sleep quality questionnaire. Data were collected from March to August 2021. Data were analyzed by one-way ANOVA and Multiple Linear Regression statistics.</p> <p><br />The results showed that most of the participants (75.0 percent) had poor sleep quality. Moreover, it was found that stress scores, smoking, gender, discomfort bedding, and the duration of smartphone use before bedtime were statistically significant to predict the sleep quality of undergraduate students, at Naresuan University, with the accounted for 23.4 percent (p-value &lt; 0.05). The highest predictor was stress (Beta = 0.361). There was no significant difference in sleep quality between the three major groups<br />(p-value &gt; 0.05). The findings from this study suggested that the university administration should be concerned with appropriately managing the academic schedule and activities to decrease the stress, which was the highest predictive factor to increase the sleep quality of the student.</p> Chanakan Tuentes Chutima Luangaphirom Totsabon Butmee Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Public Health Naresuan University http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2022-04-28 2022-04-28 4 1 36 47 Pesticide residues in hydroponic vegetables distributed in Mueang District, Phitsanulok province https://he01.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/JPHNU/article/view/254949 <p>This cross-sectional study aimed to investigate organophosphate and carbamate pesticide residues in hydroponic vegetables distributed in hydroponic vegetables retailed in Mueang District, Phitsanulok Province using the GT- Pesticide Residual Test Kit of the Department of Medical Sciences, Ministry of Public Health. A total of 48 study samples were composed of 4 types of hydroponic vegetable sampling; red oak lettuce, green oak lettuce, green cos lettuce, and red coral lettuce, sold in 3 retail stores and 1 hydroponic vegetable farm. The samples were collected from June to September 2021.</p> <p><br />The results showed that pesticide residues were not detected in 62.5% of all study samples, and 37.5% were found in the range of safe levels. Moreover, red oak lettuce samples were found at the highest levels of acetylcholinesterase inhibition which accounted for 50.0% of all red oak lettuce samples, an average level of acetylcholinesterase inhibition was 7.61 ± 1.39, followed by green oak lettuce, green cos lettuce, and red coral lettuce samples. green oak lettuce samples were in the range of safe levels at 50.0% of all green oak lettuce samples, with a level of acetylcholinesterase inhibition was 5.79 ± 0.47. green cos lettuce and red coral lettuce samples were found in the range of safe levels at 25.0%, with the levels of acetylcholinesterase inhibition being 1.30 ± 0.14 and 1.31 ± 0.12, respectively. However, the detection of pesticide residues in vegetables may affect human health. Therefore, there should be monitoring and surveillance of pesticide residue to decrease the potential impact on health and consumers.</p> Naluemol Jareerat Kanokthip Juksu Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Public Health Naresuan University http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2022-04-28 2022-04-28 4 1 48 60 Author Declaration Form for Publication in Journal of Public Health Naresuan University https://he01.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/JPHNU/article/view/256044 <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Journal of Public Health Naresuan University Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Public Health Naresuan University http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2022-04-28 2022-04-28 4 1 Thesis/Independent Study Author Declaration Form https://he01.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/JPHNU/article/view/256045 <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Journal of Public Health Naresuan University Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Public Health Naresuan University http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2022-04-28 2022-04-28 4 1 Ergonomic risk assessment of employee in the office https://he01.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/JPHNU/article/view/254885 <p>Office work has the nature of work that leads to an impact on health.
