Patel SD*, Kapadia PR**, Modi AM***.

Abstract
Background and Objective: Training of paramedical ophthalmic assistant (PMOA) for enucleation procedure will help to breach the gap of corneal deficit for eliminating corneal blindness. This study aims to assess the gains from skill based training for enucleation procedure. Methods: 33 paramedical ophthalmic assistants took enucleation training scheduled for 2 weeks at a teaching institute in South Gujarat. Training involved various teaching aids and practical sessions. Pretest and post tests were conducted through pretested questionnaire. Focus group discussion (FGD) was also done. Data were entered in MS Office Excel 2007. Results: Amongst 33 participants, 32 were above 45 years. Approximately 90% were male. Majority (73%) were posted at district /sub district hospitals. The paired pre-test and post-test average scores were 68.13 and 81.25 respectively, difference being statistically significant (P =0.002163). There was significant improvement in knowledge regarding eye donation procedure, eye bank activities and importance of blood sampling. Areas where there was further scope of improvement were donor information collection, knowledge about prerequisites and contraindications of enucleation. FGD showed participants were satisfied with training; however surgical supervision was needed for initial cases before doing enucleation independently. Interpretation and Conclusion: The current training of enucleation procedure leads to skills and capacity building of health workers. This will pave the path to curb corneal blindness.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
