  Problem statement: The problem is a state of difficulty that needs to be resolved. It is involve in daily life of everyone including the students who study in University. Basically, they have to face with the physiological and psychological change; the significant problems also exactly affected to them. These situations led them to be the risk group in which they would have inappropriate behaviors. Consequently, the quality of life of the students, their families and society would impact eventually. Approach: To (1) describe the potential of problem solving of the students of Mahasarakham University, (2) compare the potential of problem solving between the group of students, (3) purpose the strategies to improve problem solving potential. This descriptive research using cluster random sampling, to define the sample, which consisted of 355 students, separated by 3 group. They were: (1) Human-Social Science, (2) Science and Technology and (3) Health Science. The research instrument was the problem solving inventory which comprised of three components; (1) problem solving confidence (2) approach-avoidance style and (3) personal control. Descriptive statistic and inferential statistic (t-test, F-test) was applied. Results: The majority of the subjects were female (77.2%) the mean age of 18.66 and more than 55.8% were over 19 years old. Most of them were studied in the area of Human and Social Science (69.3 %). The problem solving potential level of these students in overall were in moderate level with the mean scores of 102.95. To divided by group, their mean score were: (1) the Human-Social Science group = 104.85 (2); the Health Science group = 94.86 and (3) the Science and Technology = 105.32. Most of students who able to solve the problem quite well were coping with the positive approach by did not avoiding the problem. In addition, they played attention with problem analysis, using emotional control and using the process of decision making. In contrast, the other group of students who unable to solve the problem, the research found that some of them were out of emotional control. They were avoidance and lack of self confident to solve the problem. It was not significantly different between gender. (t = 0.956, p>0.05), but it is significantly different between group. It shown that the Health Science group were able to solve the problem better than the Humanity-Social Science and Science and Technology groups, (p = 0.000). By the way, it was not significantly different between the Humanity-Social Science and Science and Technology groups (p = 0.839). Conclusion: The findings suggested the strategies of problem solving potential development should be develop by covering these elements: (1) to develop the strengthening of mental and insight (2) to develop the learning system and (3) to develop leadership more than that it should develop the instructors role in teaching by using problem solving technique including with supportive system from the academic institute.

  Problem statement: In the literature, there is no consensus over what constitutes an appropriate model for mental health promotion among nursing students in Thailand. Approach: This quasi-experimental research was conducted to evaluate the effects of mental health promotion intervention. Several activities in this intervention were created for promoting sense of coherence which focused on the manipulation of both internal and external factors that effect mental health. Results: The results revealed that prior to the implementation of mental health promotion intervention, both experimental and control groups demonstrated that there were no significant differences on the mean score of all styles of defense mechanisms and sense of coherence either in total or individual dimensions. After intervention were implemented, however, there were significantly differences between groups using mature defense mechanisms (t = -3.486, p<0.01). The comparison between before and after intervention demonstrated that using mature mechanisms was significantly different (t = -2.796, p<0.01). Following implementation, comparison between groups revealed that the sense of coherence scores both in total (t = -4.290, p<0.01) and individual dimensions were significantly different in regards to manageability (t = -3.748, p<0.01), comprehensibility (t = -4.426, p<0.01) and meaningfulness (t = -2.750, p<0.01). Comparison prior to and after implementation for the experimental group demonstrated that both scores in total (t = -6.376, p<0.01) and individual dimensions were significantly different for manageability (t = -6.031, p<0.01), comprehensibility (t = -5.696, p<0.01) and meaningfulness (t = -3.484, p<0.01) whereas for the control group was significantly different only in total (t = -2.681, p<0.01) and comprehensibility dimension (t = -2.167, p<0.05). Conclusion: These findings reflect the effectiveness of mental health promotion intervention. In order to prepare student nurses most effectively, nursing schools should apply this appropriate interventions with their students.

  Problem statement: Caring for a chronically ill-patients is a complex process which require the cooperation and social support to manage a chronic disease. It need an interaction of a large number of actors or collaborations from health care personnel of different organizations. Questions were raised to develop an appropriate intervention and the model of QOL improvement for chronic-patients in the community. Approach: To (1) develop the Quality Of Life (QOL) improvement for chronic illness patients in community by using social support program (2) evaluate the effects of the program on perception of illness, severity of illness, benefits and barriers of health promotion, health behaviors, Quality Of Life (QOL) and stress level. Participatory Action Research (PAR) was used. It was consisted of two phrases. The participants in first phase including with nurses, nutritionist, patients, caregivers, Village Health Volunteers (VHVs) and research team. The second phrase was to implement the interventions and evaluation. A total of 10 VHVs and 50 participants who met the inclusion criteria. The intervention composed of 2 main programs; (1)The VHVs were trained for 1 month as a comprehensive program to be a healthcare team collaboration. (2)The chronically ill-patients received main interventions including self-care education, apply Thai traditional medicine and home visits. Descriptive statistics and t-test were use to evaluate the pre-post intervention. Results: The majority of the participants were female (n = 38,76%), with the mean age of 66.68 years (SD = 17.20), 85% caring by their children and 42.5% by their relatives. Most participants came from low income family (40%). The post test score on each item showed that after intervention, changed scores on all five items (before-after), how ever the changes were statistically significantly (<0.05) by some items, they were perceive of benefits and barriers of health promotion, health behaviors and stress level.. The rest as perceive of illness, perceive of severity of illness and QOL were not statistically significant (>0.05). Conclusion: The findings suggested the set of interventions were effective to improve QOL of chronic patients and it was the appropriate model. To improve health care providers’ knowledge, skills and increasing of collaborations among multidisciplinary team, Local Administration Organization (LAO). VHVs and Health Care Service Centre were strongly recommended to work with chronic patients.

  Hospitals are clinical places where service daily mass catering for patients and hospitals’ staffs, hospitals’ food safety management is highly important and necessary for administrators and people who are responsible in the area of nutrition at hospitals. Now-a-days, there is still no appropriate safety to be used as a guideline in hospital’s food management to be highly safe for consumers. This research has a propose to develop hospital’s food management to be safety which the integrated models of qualitative, quantitative and operative researches research method has been used as research’s methods, the example groups were 306 government’s hospitals where under management of Thai Ministry of Public Health, the used statistics for analysis were relation model of linear structure and analysis of confirmative composition, regression and causal effects. The research result found that hospitals food safety management model is concluded of 3 most important aspects of food safety management which are food safety control, sourcing of safe raw materials and factors in food safety managing to be succeeded in both aspects of administrator’s policy and support and hospitals food safety development team which all the said 5 aspects cause hospitals food a safety directly and indirectly and the experimental results of food safety management model operation was experimentally used with 2 interested hospitals and found that there is capability to produce food safety administration in the various aspects which causing hospitals catering to be more safer. This kind of research model is able to be constructed as guideline instruction for hospitals application in order to produce food safety service that is friendly to visitors health and importantly makes more reliability on hospital’s food services.

  Development of hospital’s food safety apart from the safe production process, there is a need to produce from raw materials without hazardous contamination which dangerous for consumers’ health. But receiving safe raw materials truly is still difficult for hospital then this research has a propose to develop the productive organization group of raw materials safety for hospitals in order to improve hospital’s catering services quality to be safe and helps to reduce illness that might cause from contaminated raw materials. The qualitative research has been used for this research methodology and the example group was four prototyped hospitals of food safety in Thailand, data collection was done by a deep questioning, group discussion (Focus group) and observation from people who have their works relating to food safety development of the four hospitals. Content analysis was used for data analyzing in order to find methodological development and supportive factors that leading to an achievement, there is a finding that the idea of hospital’s food safety development causes a proactive development in producing productive network of raw materials safety. Moreover, the strategies that makes hospitals to succeed in developing productive network of raw materials safety which is caused from: the active strategy usage of business community with pricing mechanism, the change of pricing system and convenient way of payment; participation and co-ordination with out-side related network such as the departments of agriculture, livestock and the group of agriculturists who together help in planning, exchanging data between hospitals, departments of livestock, agriculture and the group of agriculturists, they force to get a change of safe production process and makes income for community agriculturists group; the change of inside hospital’s administration and management system by changing food menus to be suitable with seasonal raw materials and must be available locally; the supports from hospital’s president and food safety development team making hospitals are able to produce and expand the network of producers of safe raw materials for hospitals and out-sided consumers and as well causing a production process of raw materials safety and is friendly to the environment.
