A CASE REPORT ON PSEUDODEPRESSION: 37-YEAR-OLD MALE WITH SUPRASELLAR MASS
Authors: CARA CAMILLE M. MATUTE, MD, JEAN PAOLO M. DELFINO, MD, PERRY S. NOBLE, MD, FPNA
Abstracts: Craniopharyngioma is a rare benign epithelial tumor that typically occurs in a bimodal age distribution and intracranial tumors commonly present with signs of increased intracranial pressure due to the mass effect. Additionally, craniopharyngiomas often manifest as pituitary and/or hypothalamic dysfunction as well as visual impairment. This case report will discuss an unusual case of craniopharyngioma in a middle-aged male who presented with pseudodepression for 4 months prior to diagnosis. Eventually, the patient developed headache and decreasing sensorium. He underwent excision of tumor during admission and histopathologic diagnosis showed adamantinomatous craniopharyngioma which has a relatively good prognosis but with a high recurrence rate. Hypothetically, the disruption of the neural connections between the hypothalamus and limbic system in craniopharyngiomas cause the psychiatric symptoms. The gradual onset of psychological symptoms and mass effect may be attributed to the benign nature of craniopharyngiomas. The salient features of this case emphasize the importance of having a high index of suspicion for an organic neurological etiology in cases of new onset psychiatric symptoms without the presence of lateralizing signs.

THE EVIDENCE-BASED ANTICIPATORY ACTIONS AND LESSONS FOR THE FUTURE IN NEPAL.
Authors: RUDRA NARAYAN ADHIKARI
Abstracts: Frequent and intense extreme weather events cause significant damage and losses to people every year in Nepal. Unmanaged cities, climate-induced risks, environmental degradation, and haphazard urbanization are the key factors that intensify disaster risks and threats to the people's lives and livelihoods who are living in high-risk areas. Anticipating the resilience of people, it is important to identify and reduce those risks and threats. Similarly, it is obliged to be well prepared through implementing preparedness measures and anticipatory actions based on the weather forecast and scientific triggers with appropriate strategies that can help to mitigate the impact of disasters. Climate shocks are being increasingly severe damage and increasing humanitarian needs. Present practices in Nepal show that except for a few cases, humanitarian action has been mostly responsive rather than preventive, arriving after a crisis has materialized. With recent advances in forecasting, humanitarian and development organizations have been able to anticipate and respond ahead of crises. This paper discusses and reviews the principles, and evidence on anticipatory action taken emerging from forecast-based financing-shock responsive social protection (FbA-SRSP), early warning early actions, and capacity building initiatives by Nepal Red Cross Society, UN OCHA, and WFP to the date in Nepal. Based on the evidence and learnings, explores the recommendations and lessons for the future to promote anticipatory action on the way to reduce losses on the lives and livelihoods of people in Nepal.

CIRCUIT, INTERVAL AND TRADITIONAL TRAINING METHOD APPROACHES TOWARDS MOTIVATION AND MENTAL TOUGHNESS OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL HOCKEY ATHLETES
Authors: MOHAMMAD IQRAM AKEEF MOHD AMIN, WAN AHMAD MUNSIF WAN PA
Abstracts: In undergoing high intensity and high performance training, an athlete will sometimes face issues involving physical or mental aspects. Things that have been observed or have no researches on it are related to training methods with the impact of motivation and mental toughness. This study is intended to look at the effects of specific training methods such as circuit training methods, interval training methods and traditional training methods on motivation and mental toughness and their contributions upon primary school hockey athletes. Based on the references from previous studies, the researcher has used the combined design of two research methods, namely quasi-experimental and survey method. Sports Motivation Scale (SMS) 28 Items and Mental Toughness Questionnaire (MTQ) 48 Items have been used as a tool of motivational and mental toughness measurement instruments in pre and post-test. A total of 30 respondents of 11 and 12 -year-old primary school hockey athletes were selected in purposive sampling and distributed equally into two training methods treatment groups (circuits, R1 and interval, R2) and one control group (traditional, K) and had undergone pre-test, intervention (for treatment group) and post-test. The study data obtained were analyzed with non-parametric methods by using Spearman's Correlation analysis method for training methods with motivation and mental toughness and Chi-Square Test for contribution of training methods to motivation and mental toughness. The results of the analysis found that there was a negative significant relationship [p = .937, r = -.016 (pre); p = .483, r = -.138 (post)] between training methods with motivation and a positive significant relationship [p = .474, r = -.136 (pre); p = .634, r = -.091 (post)] between training methods and mental toughness. Whereas the contribution of training methods to motivation and mental toughness shows the value of Pearson Chi-Square on Asymptotic Significance (2-sided) is .157 which provides significant relevance and contribution.

FROM BELIEFS TO PRACTICES: THE LIVED EXPERIENCES OF FILIPINO NURSES UTILIZING TRADITIONAL FILIPINO HEALTH REMEDIES AT HOME, A PHENOMENOLOGY
Authors: MARICEL T. GUBAT, MED 1, ANNE BEATRICE A. JOSE 2, MA. ANGELA JAYNE M. MANDIN 3, DANIELLE RAFAEL P. PAGTAKHAN 4, JOSH ALLEN L. SAN DIEGO 5, CAROL ANRO A. MORALES 6, HANNAH GRACE M. PADIOS 7, DASHLY VENYS L. MARQUEZ 8
Abstracts: Background: The improvement of primary healthcare in the Philippines has been greatly aided by the discovery of traditional health remedies. While few studies have highlighted the use of traditional Filipino health remedies, this paper provides a clear understanding of the lived experiences of Filipino nurses on traditional Filipino health remedies. Methods: This qualitative study utilized the phenomenological approach to fully understand the lived experiences and perceptions of Filipino nurses concerning the central question: "How would Filipino nurses in Qatar describe Traditional Filipino Health Remedies as effective?". The necessary data set was obtained in semi-structured interviews with twenty-five (25) questions and formulated themes from the responses of the participants. Findings: Findings have shown the usual procedures and perceptions of Filipino nurses in treating a particular ailment. It comprises three major themes with three sub-themes each: Constancy with the sub-themes Personal Experience, Evidence-based, and Practicality; Utility with the sub-themes Frugality, Accessibility, and Simplicity; and Producibility with the sub-themes Health Acquisition, Enculturation, and Knowledge Acquisition. Conclusion: The home-based integration of traditional Filipino health remedies of Filipino nurses reflects the significance and essential consideration of its usage. Despite living overseas, it also expresses one's practice of Filipino traditions. Recommendations: To fill in specific spaces of this study, it is suggested that future researchers diversify the respondent's profile by locale, status, and age. In addition to diversifying the demographics, it is also recommended that future researchers conduct further analysis on how the pandemic impacts the lived experiences of Filipino nurses on traditional health practices.
