The Kay Picture (KP) VA test is one of the UK’s leading tests for pre-literate children in clinical practice. The test has since been redesigned to modernise the optotypes. Phase-1: Resolution acuity for 25 pictures, 8 Landolt C’s and 5 ETDRS letters were assessed in adults. Phase-2: Recognition phase assessed children (<30 months). Phase-3: Resolution acuity of a reduced number of pictures and the Landolt C. Phase-4: Comparison of the KP test with LEA symbols and the ETDRS. Phase-5: Collection of age related norms. Mean (±SD) acuity with 25 pictures: -0.12±0.12 to -0.31±0.11 LogMAR, Landolt C’s: -0.06±0.12 and -0.13±0.10 for the ETDRS. Three pictures were removed at this point. Picture recognition was assessed in 420 children (<30 months). A further 10 pictures were removed based on recognition. Resolution acuity was assessed in 42 adults with the remaining 12 pictures. Based on individual recognition thresholds, the picture selection was reduced to six. A further 113 adults were assessed with the new KP test, the ETDRS and LEA symbol. The mean bias indicated similar results between tests. Phase-4 evaluated the repeatability of the KP test and the ETDRS in 100 adults, no significant difference was found between either test (p=0.1). Phase-5: Mean (±SD) acuity in children (<30 months): 0.10±0.07 LogMAR. The redesigned KP test has been shown to be highly comparable with current gold standard VA assessments. The new single crowded optotype enables clinicians to assess younger patients (<2 years), which potentially could detect amblyopia earlier than previously possible.

The aim is to reduce infection in unit by relearning infection control policies. Outcomes in neonatology have improved dramatically in the last three decades. Improved survival- associated with increasing short-term and long-term morbidity. Infections are important cause of morbidity and mortality. Majority of infections are potentially preventable. Early onset sepsis related to maternal and perinatal factors on which NICU professionals have little control. Late onset usually Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) and linked to infection control measures and are controllable and potentially preventable. Reported incidence of sepsis is 15-50% depending on location and gestation, 25% of VLBW in the NICHD network were having LOS. Incidence falling in developed economies, e.g. 15% in Canada (2010/11) and drop from 38/1000 admissions to 20/1000 admissions in the UK (2006-2014) and Gulf region (2013-15) it is 56/1000 admissions. Seasonal variations have been described to reduce the infection; we need to have policies in place. Some of which are hand hygiene policy, central line policy and bundles, isolation policies, antibiotic policies, cleaning and waste. We might have disjointed between policy and care delivery. The metrics being used were nor accurate/fit for purpose. If we look at hand hygiene policy, it may happen that there may be policy in place, IC team audits showing high compliance but fly on the wall observation revealed a different story, non-compliance widespread, accessibility of hand gel at bedside was an issue, Turnover of new staff e.g. residents who were poorly oriented. So, we need to work on the missing gap and improve the compliance. Similarly, for central line bundle it may have issues in any of the following: Bundles in place, IC team reporting high compliance, wrong metric being used was a tick box exercise with no empowerment of nurses, no standardization, application of antiseptic and adherence to aseptic technique suspect, type of antiseptic used, multiple breaks in to the line and indefinite line duration. When we do quality improvement then we can have infection free NICU.

Stunting is still a problem in Indonesia. The highest prevalence of stunting in 2013 is in East Nusa Tenggara (51.7%), West Sulawesi (48.0%) and West Nusa Tenggara (45.3%). Stunting problems describe chronic nutritional problems, influenced by the condition of the mother or expectant mother, fetal period and infant or under-five years, including illness suffered during childhood. Like other nutritional problems, not only health issues, but also influenced by other conditions that indirectly affect health. The aim is to review the literature related to the events stunting determinant in Indonesia and identify the factors that have an impact on the incidence of stunting in children. Leading databases were searched electronically between the years 2013 and 2017. A database of relevant health including EBSCO, PubMed, BiomedCentral, ProQuest, DOAJ and Scholar in the search by using a combination of search terms: Determinants of stunting, malnutrition, risk factors stunting, Indonesia, Southeast Asia. Twelve (12) articles identified from 815 articles were included in the review. A few factors for the occurrence of stunting in Indonesia included: Factor of the child, family factors, sanitation and infectious diseases. This review literature review found out that the most dominant factors that causes stunting in children in Indonesia are children with Low Birth Weight (LBW), boys, not exclusively breastfed for six months, poorly educated parents, low social economics, parent with malnutrition and poor sanitation at home.
