Povzetek Namen te presečne kvantitativne raziskave je ugotoviti, katera oblika nasilja je v madžarskih zdravstvenih ustanovah najpogostejša. Z njo želimo oceniti, ali se v teh ustanovah izvaja usposabljanje za komunikacijo, simulacijo in samoobrambo. Cilj je ugotoviti, ali bi se zaposleni udeležili takega usposabljanja, ter oceniti povezanost med usposobljenostjo (komunikacija, simulacija, samoobramba) in stopnjo samozavesti. Žrtve večine nasilnih dejanj pacientov so zdravstveni delavci. Najpogostejša oblika agresije pacientov in njihovih svojcev je verbalna agresija, vključno z zbadanjem, verbalno zlorabo in grožnjami z zlorabo. Podatki kažejo, da zgolj usposabljanje v komunikaciji ni dovolj za dvig samozavesti pri zdravstvenih delavcih. Treba jim je zagotoviti orodje, kot so na primer praktične vaje po usposabljanju iz samoobrambe ali simulacija, saj to olajša komunikacijo zaposlenega. Ključne besede Agresija, zdravstvo, preventiva, usposabljanje, samoobramba, samozavest. Abstract The present cross-sectional quantitative research aims to gain a sense of which form of violence is the most common in Hungarian healthcare institutions. It aims to assess whether communication, simulation, and self-defence training is provided in institutions, to find out whether workers would participate in such training, and to assess the relationship between training (communication, simulation, self-defence) and confidence. Healthcare workers are affected by most acts of violence coming from patients. The most common type of aggression on the part of patients and relatives is verbal aggression, including teasing, verbal abuse, and threats of abuse. The data show that communication training alone is not enough to make health workers confident. They should have a tool in their hands, e.g., practice after self-defence education, simulation practice, as this makes it easier for the employee to communicate. Key words Aggression, healthcare, prevention, training, self-defence, confidence.

The purpose is to realize the intelligent reform of piano online teaching and the intelligent optimization of wireless networks. Empirical research is realized with quantitative research and algorithm simulation as the starting point. First, regression fitting algorithm and Relief F weight algorithm are adopted to extract the effectiveness of each characteristic variable. Next, under the guidance of metric learning theory, K-Nearest Neighbors (KNN) in Projected Feature Space (P-KNN) algorithm is proposed to complete the hierarchical recognition of piano teaching influence features. Metric Learning With Support Vector Machine (ML-SVM) classification algorithm is employed to identify the feature performance affecting piano teaching. Finally, the performance of P-KNN algorithm and ML-SVM algorithm is compared with KNN algorithm and Information-Theoretic-Metric-Learning (ITML) algorithm. It is concluded that the recognition accuracies of P-KNN and ML-SVM are 82.78% and 83.97%, respectively. Based on the quantitative research on the characteristics affecting piano teaching, artificial intelligence and wireless network optimization are combined to explore the implementation path of intelligent technology in piano teaching reform, reflect the use value of modern science and technology in piano teaching, and innovate the process of music online education reform of piano teaching.

Extant literature indicates that despite the growing importance of retailing to the development of nations, it is imperative to ask; to what extent does retail channel service relates to customer retention in chain stores in Nigeria. The main objective of the study is to examine the significant relationship between retail channel service and customer retention in chain stores in Nigeria. The study adopted a quantitative research design using a survey method. The study population comprised 65 retail chain stores registered with the Enugu Branch of Pillars Association of Nigeria as of July 2020. The questionnaires were pretested for comprehension, relevance and validity through ten operators of retail superstores and three scholars in the field of distribution channel management. The reliability of the instrument was tested using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient analysis in order to ensure the internal consistency and reliability of measures. The reliability coefficient obtained was 0.85. The findings of the study show that bulk breaking, spatial convenience, waiting time and product variety are positively related to customer retention. We conclude that retail channel service has a positive and significant influence on customer retention of retail chain stores in Nigeria. The retail chain stores, if effectively coordinated, and their marketing channel service properly managed, is capable of enhancing the tendencies of these retail stores in retaining their existing customers.

This study investigates how small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) conduct corporate social responsibility (CSR) and how it affects their performance. This study used quantitative research with data collected from 138 manufacturing SMEs in Java. By using partial least square structural equation modeling, this study discovers that economic and philanthropic responsibilities have a significant effect on customer and employee performances, whereas legal responsibility has a substantial impact on customer, employee, operational and financial performances. In contrast, ethical responsibility does not affect any aspect of company performance. The findings also highlight that legal responsibility is the most significant predictor of all four performances, and economic and philanthropic responsibilities are the second biggest predictors as each of them has a substantial effect on one performance. The results also show that customer and employee performances receive the most effect from two dimensions. Customer performance is significantly influenced by economic and legal responsibilities, while employee performance is significantly affected by legal and philanthropic responsibilities. These findings can encourage SMEs, particularly in developing countries, like Indonesia, to implement CSR beyond profit maximization and compliance to achieve higher social and financial performance.
