    The period prior to the publication of this academic journal (Volume 2, Number 4, October-December 2020) was the time for collecting and reviewing academic articles which had been submitted for publication. Like other editions the journal has received assistance from experts in the various fields who make recommendations for improvements to academic articles.

    During such time the journal editor was appointed “The Chairman of the National Reform Committee on Culture, Sports, Labor and Human Resources” and went on his new duties, which have provided opportunities to meet and exchange views with experienced people in a variety of professional fields to compile important matters according to the goal of building a strong Thai society. Using people and communities as a focus, the harmony of the body, mind, thoughts and abilities are considered to create opportunities for life in all ages. Within the context of the current situation, one must be ready for the rapid future changes as well.

    By being able to attend discussions with various people, it makes sense that having a platform to share knowledge and experience is essential. This can be done in a variety of dimensions which this academic journal is one of other platforms for expressing authors’ knowledge and experiences.

    The Journal of Chulabhorn Royal Academy (JCRA) Volume 2, Number 2 was published during the time of new learning and new experiences in order to change self sanitation behavior in response to the COVID-19. The pandemic has affected all countries in all walks of life. This viral protein molecule, Ribonucleic Acid (RNA), may be said to have affected peoples’ lifestyles for survival together in this world.

    The Chulabhorn Royal Academy (CRA), a higher education institution offering services in both hospital care and educational programs in medicine, health science, and science and technology, has shifted our paradigm to provide needed services to together face the crisis.

    As health care provider the CRA has divided our patients into two groups to receive proper treatments by respective work units. The patients of cancer, heart disease, and general diseases will be taken care of by the Chulabhorn Oncology Medical Center (COMC) of the hospital. On the other hand, the COVID - 19 patients will be serviced by the Chalermprakiet Medical Center (CMC) of the hospital. By doing this we hope to be able to care for all without neglecting anyone. The education about the COVID - 19 has been communicated to the public in many new social media channels.

    These strategies are provided with the expectation that the public will gain knowledge, attitudes, awareness without panic, and be able to practice self prevention.

    Included in this JCRA volume are such important topics as the Communication for Nursing in the Changing Age, the Standards of Various Mechanical Plants for Sustainable Development, the Quality Care for Pediatric Patients with Febrile Convulsion, the Evaluation of Water Balance in the Body, and the Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis.

    During this social/physical distancing and working from home time everyone is invited to read articles in this volume, give suggestions and consider submitting research article or innovation for possible publication. The quality time spent at home should be beneficial to health for all.
