Abstract

The aims of this study were to create and develop a model for practicing specimen collection of nasopharyngeal swabs and to study satisfaction of users after using the model. The study was divided into two parts: 1) the design and development of a model for practicing specimen collection of nasopharyngeal swabs and 2) the evaluation of the users’ satisfaction after using the model. The human samples to evaluate the satisfaction consisted of 2 groups, selected by purposive sampling and convenience sampling. The purposive sampling included public health technical officers, nurses and public health officers who took part in the Joint Investigation Team of the Office of Disease Prevention and Control, Region 4 Saraburi province. The convenience sampling consisted of outsource personnels from the Office of Disease Prevention and Control, Region 4 Saraburi province who worked for surveillance and control during the outbreak of COVID-19, for example, a public health technical officer, a registered nurse in the district health promotion hospital, village health volunteers and school health teachers.
The results showed that the model for practicing specimen collection of nasopharyngeal swabs was designed to imitate the human structure as a half human head. The model showed the anatomic position of nasopharynx where the sensor was located and the loud sound when the users practiced correctly. The overall mean scores of users’ satisfaction toward the models were at a high to the highest level in every part.
