Abstract

in English, Chinese

OBJECTIVE:

To assess the theoretical knowledge and practical skills of parasitic diseases among technicians from disease control and prevention institutions.

METHODS:

The Assessment on National Parasitic Disease Control and Prevention Techniques was organized in September, 2015. Together, 124 subjects from disease control and prevention institutions at province, prefecture or county levels in 31 provinces joined the assessment. A database was built consisting of subjects' basic information and assessment scores. Statistical analysis was used to analyze the scores by gender, age, professional title, institutions and places of participants.

RESULTS:

The average total score of all the subjects was 123.3, with a passing rate of 57.3%. The average scores of male subjects (48 subjects) and female subjects (76 subjects) were 125.9 and 121.7 respectively; the average scores of the subjects aged under 30 years (57 subjects), between 30 and 40 years (61 subjects) and above 40 years (6 subjects) were 119.6, 128.1 and 111.2 respectively; the average scores of persons with junior (94 subjects), intermediate (28 subjects) and senior (2 subjects) professional titles were 119.2, 135.9 and 140.5 respectively. The average theoretical assessment score of all the subjects was 61.9, with a passing rate of 62.9%. The average practical skill assessment score of all the subjects was 61.4, with a passing rate of 58.1%.

CONCLUSIONS:

The theoretical assessment results range widely. The theoretical knowledge results of technicians from disease control and prevention institutions are low in general. Therefore, the specific training based on daily work needs to be enhanced.
