Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

In recent decades, digital technologies have been transformed and support new ways of healing the human being using teleconsultation or remote interventions that address mental health.

Although in the business world at this moment it is in the presence of various dynamics, demands and relationships that lead people to conduct large-scale behaviors, it is necessary for the owners of the means of production to observe and provide medical care with health programs workers about conditions related to depression, anxiety disorders and post-traumatic stress disorders with the purpose of improving the quality of life of people and consequently these people are able to generate new ideas and business innovation projects that achieve a impact on the productive sector from the territories where they are located.

In this special edition, we aim to explore the intersection of digital technologies, mental health, and business sustainability in the productive sector. We invite researchers, practitioners, and experts to contribute their insights, experiences, and research findings on this vital topic.

To determine the influence of parents on the development of healthy oral hygiene habits in children. A basic, descriptive, prospective, and cross-sectional research was carried out using a 15-question questionnaire instrument, with which information on the educational level, age, and sex of the parents was collected. In order to determine the adjustment of the probability distributions to each other, the non-parametric Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was applied. Subsequently, the statistical tests of Kendall’s Tau and Spearman’s Correlation were used at a significance level of p < 0.05. Most parents demonstrated a medium level of knowledge and attitude toward the importance of maintaining primary dentition, regardless of their educational level, gender, or age. However, the study did not find significant relationships between these factors and knowledge or attitude on the topic. Similarly, attitude showed average levels in general, with no critical relationship with education, gender, or age. Parents generally had a medium level of knowledge and attitude, regardless of their educational status, gender, or age. There are no significant relationships found between these factors (education, sex, and age) and the level of knowledge and attitude about the importance of preserving primary dentition.

Purpose: The objective of this article is to conduct a literature review to understand and analyze the use of information technologies in medical education. Design/methodology/approach: In this documentary article, the method employed focused on the review of various databases (Scopus, Redalyc, Scielo, and Web of Science). Findings: As a result, it was found that telemedicine, in particular, has facilitated online consultations and real-time feedback, enhancing the quality of healthcare and promoting continuous professional development. Virtual medical simulations have provided a safe and controlled environment for students and professionals to practice clinical skills, refine techniques, and build confidence before facing real-life situations. Additionally, access to online educational resources, such as digital libraries and medical journals, has expanded access to medical knowledge and enabled students and professionals to stay updated in an ever-evolving field.
