A performance-based lottery to improve residential care and training by institutional staff. (3/8413)

Two experiments were conducted on four units of a residential facility for the multiply-handicapped retarded in an attempt to improve daily care and training services. Experiment I compared the effects of two procedures in maintaining the work performance of attendants, using an A-B design on two units. One procedure consisted of implementing specific staff-resident assignments, the other consisted of allowing attendants who had met performance criteria to be eligible for a weekly lottery in which they could win the opportunity to rearrange their days off for the following week. Results showed that the lottery was a more effective procedure as measured by the per cent of time attendants engaged in predefined target behaviors, and by their frequency of task completion in several areas of resident care. Experiment II replicated and extended these results to the area of work quality on two additional units, using a multiple-baseline design. The performance lottery was found to be an effective econimical procedure that could be implemented by supervisory staff on a large scale.  (+info)

Hospital restructuring and the changing nature of the physical therapist's role. (4/8413)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: This study was conducted to identify role behavior changes of acute care physical therapists and changes in the organizational and professional context of hospitals following restructuring. METHODS: A Delphi technique, which involved a panel of 100 randomly selected acute care physical therapy managers, was used as the research design for this study. Responses from rounds 1 and 2 were synthesized and organized into exhaustive and mutually exclusive categories for round 3. Data obtained from round 3 were used to develop a comprehensive perspective on the changes that have occurred. RESULTS: Changed role behaviors in patient care and professional interaction, including increased emphasis on evaluation, planning, teaching, supervising, and collaboration, appeared to be extensions of unchanged role behaviors. Reported changes in the structural and professional context of physical therapy services included using critical pathways to guide care, providing services system-wide, and using educational activities and meetings to maintain a sense of community. The importance of professionalism to physical therapists' work was identified and related to specific role behavior changes. CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION: The changing role of physical therapists in acute care hospitals includes an increased emphasis on higher-level skills in patient care and professional interaction and the continuing importance of professionalism.  (+info)

The effect of race and sex on physicians' recommendations for cardiac catheterization. (5/8413)

BACKGROUND: Epidemiologic studies have reported differences in the use of cardiovascular procedures according to the race and sex of the patient. Whether the differences stem from differences in the recommendations of physicians remains uncertain. METHODS: We developed a computerized survey instrument to assess physicians' recommendations for managing chest pain. Actors portrayed patients with particular characteristics in scripted interviews about their symptoms. A total of 720 physicians at two national meetings of organizations of primary care physicians participated in the survey. Each physician viewed a recorded interview and was given other data about a hypothetical patient. He or she then made recommendations about that patient's care. We used multivariate logistic-regression analysis to assess the effects of the race and sex of the patients on treatment recommendations, while controlling for the physicians' assessment of the probability of coronary artery disease as well as for the age of the patient, the level of coronary risk, the type of chest pain, and the results of an exercise stress test. RESULTS: The physicians' mean (+/-SD) estimates of the probability of coronary artery disease were lower for women (probability, 64.1+/-19.3 percent, vs. 69.2+/-18.2 percent for men; P<0.001), younger patients (63.8+/-19.5 percent for patients who were 55 years old, vs. 69.5+/-17.9 percent for patients who were 70 years old; P<0.001), and patients with nonanginal pain (58.3+/-19.0 percent, vs. 64.4+/-18.3 percent for patients with possible angina and 77.1+/-14.0 percent for those with definite angina; P=0.001). Logistic-regression analysis indicated that women (odds ratio, 0.60; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.4 to 0.9; P=0.02) and blacks (odds ratio, 0.60; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.4 to 0.9; P=0.02) were less likely to be referred for cardiac catheterization than men and whites, respectively. Analysis of race-sex interactions showed that black women were significantly less likely to be referred for catheterization than white men (odds ratio, 0.4; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.2 to 0.7; P=0.004). CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that the race and sex of a patient independently influence how physicians manage chest pain.  (+info)

Conditions required for a law on active voluntary euthanasia: a survey of nurses' opinions in the Australian Capital Territory. (8/8413)

OBJECTIVES: To ascertain which conditions nurses believe should be in a law allowing active voluntary euthanasia (AVE). DESIGN: Survey questionnaire posted to registered nurses (RNs). SETTING: Australian Capital Territory (ACT) at the end of 1996, when active voluntary euthanasia was legal in the Northern Territory. SURVEY SAMPLE: A random sample of 2,000 RNs, representing 54 per cent of the RN population in the ACT. MAIN MEASURES: Two methods were used to look at nurses' opinions. The first involved four vignettes which varied in terms of critical characteristics of each patient who was requesting help to die. The respondents were asked if the law should be changed to allow any of these requests. There was also a checklist of conditions, most of which have commonly been included in Australian proposed laws on AVE. The respondents chose those which they believed should apply in a law on AVE. RESULTS: The response rate was 61%. Support for a change in the law to allow AVE was 38% for a young man with AIDS, 39% for an elderly man with early stage Alzheimer's disease, 44% for a young woman who had become quadriplegic and 71% for a middle-aged woman with metastases from breast cancer. The conditions most strongly supported in any future AVE law were: "second doctor's opinion", "cooling off period", "unbearable protracted suffering", "patient fully informed about illness and treatment" and "terminally ill". There was only minority support for "not suffering from treatable depression", "administer the fatal dose themselves" and "over a certain age". CONCLUSION: Given the lack of support for some conditions included in proposed AVE laws, there needs to be further debate about the conditions required in any future AVE bills.  (+info)

Clinicians have been found to hold predominantly negative attitudes toward routine outcome assessments (ROA). This study aims to assess changes in clinicians attitudes to ROA, and in particular, the provision of feedback from such assessments following a training workshop. Ninety-six mental health workers attended a training workshop on ROA, which was supported by the use of a CD-ROM video resource. Participants completed a questionnaire before and after training that assessed their attitudes toward ROA and the provision of feedback from these assessments. Attitudes toward feedback were predominantly positive at baseline. Significantly more positive attitudes on general attitudes and specific attitudes related to the provision of feedback were found following training. Generating positive clinician attitudes is the first step toward improving the processes and effectiveness of ROA. Controlled trials with a follow up of clinicians behaviour are needed to determine whether the changes found are
Back ground: Domestic violence against women is a major public health problem and violations of womens human rights. Health professionals could play an important role in screening for the victims. From the evidence to date, it is unclear whether health professionals do play an active role in identification of the victims. Objectives: To develop a reliable and valid instrument to measure health professionals attitude to identifying female victims of domestic violence. Methods: A primary questionnaire was constructed in accordance with established guidelines using the Theory of Planned Behaviour Ajzen (1975) to develop an instrument to measure health professionals attitudes in identifying female victim of DV. An expert panel was used to establish content validity. Focus groups amongst a group of health professionals (N = 5) of the target population were performed to confirm face validity. A pilot study (N = 30 nurses and doctors) was undertaken to elicit the feasibility and reliability of the
Background: The obesity pandemic is causing premature mortality, increasing morbidity and escalating healthcare costs. It is globally acknowledged that current obesity management strategies are failing. It is also accepted that clinicians may hold an Anti-fat bias. To-date it has not been established if there is a relationship between strategy failures and clinicians attitudes. This uncharted territory was the driving impetus to undertaken a study investigating possible links and consequences. Aims: To establish healthcare clinicians attitudes towards patients with obesity and test the extent to which their attitudes influenced obesity management. Methods: Online vignettes were generated via Factorial Survey Design methods to assess obesity management by clinicians. The obesity Implicit Association Test (IAT) was used to assess subconscious Anti-fat bias. Data were collected anonymously from a multi-professional convenience sample in a virtual research site managed by Project Implicit®. ...
This is a three phase study designed to examine clinician behaviors with regard to recommending and prescribing pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) as a primary Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) prevention strategy, and to identify knowledge-related and attitudinal factors associated with these behaviors. Each phase consists of the following:. Phase 1: Semi-structured face-to-face or telephone interviews of ATN-affiliated clinicians. Approximately 10 clinicians will be interviewed.. Phase 2: Development of a new theory-based survey instrument and cognitive interview testing of this survey. Approximately five clinicians (of those who participated in Phase 1) will be interviewed.. Phase 3: Administration of the newly developed survey to ATN-affiliated clinicians. Approximately 60 clinicians will be interviewed. ...

Continuity in the context of healthcare refers to the perception of the client that care has been connected and coherent over time. For over a decade professionals providing maternity and child and family health (CFH) services in Australia and internationally have emphasised the importance of continuity of care for women, families and children. However, continuity across maternity and CFH services remains elusive. Continuity is defined and implemented in different ways, resulting in fragmentation of care particularly at points of transition from one service or professional to another. This paper examines the concept of continuity across the maternity and CFH service continuum from the perspectives of midwifery, CFH nursing, general practitioner (GP) and practice nurse (PN) professional leaders. Data were collected as part of a three phase mixed methods study investigating the feasibility of implementing a national approach to CFH services in Australia (CHoRUS study). Representatives from the four
To stimulate physical activity (PA) and guide primary care patients towards local PA facilities, Care Sport Connectors (CSC), to whom a broker role has been ascribed, were introduced in 2012 in the Netherlands. The aim of this study is to assess perceptions of primary care, welfare, and sport professionals towards the CSC role and the connection between the primary care and the PA sector. Nine focus groups were held with primary care, welfare and sport professionals within the CSC network. In these focus groups the CSC role and the connection between the sectors were discussed. Both top-down and bottom-up codes were used to analyse the focus groups. Professionals ascribed three roles to the CSC: 1) broker role, 2) referral, 3) facilitator. Professionals were enthusiastic about how the current connection was established. However, barriers relating to their own sector were currently hindering the connection: primary care professionals lack of time, money and knowledge, and the lack of suitable PA

Results The overarching theme to emerge from the interview data was of professionals, medical and social care, wanting to present an acceptable self-image of their views on TOPFA. Professionals values on fixing, pain and normality influenced what aspects of moral acceptability they gave priority to in terms of their standpoint and, in turn, their conceptualisations of acceptable TOPFA. Thus, if a termination could be defended morally, including negotiation of several key issues (including fixing, perceptions of pain and normality), then participants conceptualised TOPFA as an acceptable pregnancy outcome. ...
to the editor: In this "Tips from Other Journals," Dr. Crawford-Faucher reviewed the meta-analysis by Brugts and colleagues that concluded that statins are beneficial for primary prevention of cardiac disease.1 I agree with this conclusion, but with some reservations. The review stated that the relative risk reduction for all-cause mortality was 12 percent, which sounds very good; however, I think it is important to look at the absolute risk reduction. All-cause mortality after a mean follow-up of 4.1 years was 5.1percent in the group treated with statins and 5.7 percent in the control group. That translates into an absolute risk reduction of 0.6 percent and a number needed to treat (NNT) of 167. This means that 167 patients would need to be treated with a statin for 4.1 years to prevent one death. Additionally, based on the study data, the NNT to prevent one major coronary event is 77, and the NNT to prevent one major cerebrovascular event is 250.. The studies that were used in the ...

I think those that make the suggestion Ramey couldnt possibly have made such an error are just plain stupid. Rameys expression suggests he was flustered, and if you are ever going to make a mistake, right at this point would be the perfect time, as he probably was even shielding his aide from the stuff. He would have been thinking a million things at once, and even Blanchard made the huge mistake of telling the press, did he not? So those like cda who suggest Ramey couldnt possibly have made such an error are just plain naïve, of course people make mistakes, if Hitler didnt make mistakes he would still be alive today and Germany would be ruling the world. How incredibly arrogant therefore to believe the because Ramey couldnt have made such a mistake the whole thing therefore is a farce. So one could then say Blanchard, Ramey, indeed Marcel, and his son, just for starters, are all idiots. One could on the other hand say that these men were all human, all had to made decisions without the ...
Some have said that the whole thing has been done to make money. But what has really motivated the slides investigation is a sense of obligation to truth and to history. What these skeptics fail utterly to understand is the great expense -both personal and monetary- that this slide investigation has cost. Who do they think paid for the expert analysis of the slides? Who do they think paid for repeated visits to places like New Mexico, Texas and Rochester? Who paid for the hotels, car rentals, meals out? On whose dime and on whose time do they think all this investigation was done? This has all been self-funded by the owner and the investigators. And every moment that has been taken investigating the slides is a moment that has been taken away from making a living or time with family. Frankly the gall that some have to suggest that this should all be unpaid effort is beyond belief. And despite attempts at gaining mainstream media interest, none was obtained. A public venue was chosen and a live ...
The main aim of this paper is to present a pilot proposal of a model of "Virtual Development Management System" (ViDeMaS) which will facilitate more effective management and development of virtual teams. Management and development of virtual teams is not a simple concept. It comprises a body of knowledge from a number of fields and scientific disciplines. The complexity of the koncept may not be simplified as it is absolutely essential for full understanding of its nature. In order to gain better orientation in the concept, different perspectives will be used in the description of the model, which will enable us to achieve the goal of the work and to present the main results of the work (creation of a model for Virtual Development Management System). The present paper thus describes from different perspectives the proposal of a sufficiently detailed and complex model that may be utilized both on theoretical and application level ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! The distribution of city populations has attracted much attention, in part because it constrains models of local growth. However, there is no consensus on the distribution below the very upper tail, because available data need to rely on legal rather than economic definitions for medium and small cities. To remedy this difficulty, we construct cities from the bottom up by clustering populated areas obtained from high-resolution data. We find that Zipfs law for population holds for cities as small as 5,000 inhabitants in Great Britain and 12,000 inhabitants in the US. We also find a Zipfs law for areas. JEL: R11, R12, R23
Im tempted to say misery loves company. But considering the gravity of the matter, that seems trite. In this situation, misery has company. Lots of it.

Taema and Tila are twin sisters, born as conjoined twins. They spent their early lives in a cult that rejected any technology dating from after 1967, but escaped in their teens, when their shared heart was failing. Separated, they now live different lives. When Tila is arrested for murder-an almost unheard-of crime in this near-future San Francisco-the police convince Taema to impersonate her in order to gather information that will bring down a criminal cartel that has become dangerously powerful and influential. Not incidentally, from Taemas point of view, this also stands a chance at proving Tilas innocence-or at least getting her a pardon.. Lam adroitly balances two different perspectives. Tila, under arrest, recounts the sisters early lives with the cult. Taema narrates the contemporary story. Their different perspectives and different stories are deftly interleaved, and Lam weaves past and present together to tell a tight, tense and pacey thriller-but also to tell a story about trust ...

Hamren: We team with other professionals both within our program and with other agencies. As Marge mentioned earlier, we will do joint visits with vision specialists as well as other therapists. It is a nice way to be able to share expertise and can be easier to coordinate schedules. I have had an ongoing schedule with a PT where the last 30 minutes of my session and the first 30 minutes of her session are overlapped. She is in the home and I join in virtually. This has worked very well. It also works well when children have a lot of challenges and there are many therapists that go into the home. You can reduce the number of people in the visit by having one attend virtually. We have also used it as an opportunity to have our own team members join us for a session to give a different perspective for a challenging situation. We have also attended meetings virtually ...
No confidence in this government, said one respondent to the AMM survey of metal company executives. We need to make our own best decisions from a business standpoint no matter what Washington does or doesn t do. This sentiment, and others similar to it, were common responses in the survey (see page 10), reflecting a continuing sense among industry leaders that the government is somehow directly responsible for the slow growth in business that surely keeps many of them awake at night. In fact, more than half of all survey respondents said they believe the business environment in 2014 will be less certain because it is an election year. But there is another viewpoint. Anyone who blames market conditions on the fact that it is an election year is an idiot, said another respondent. Company sales are based upon demand for products. So which outlook is closer to the truth? Perhaps some other results of the survey are instructive:. ,, More than 80 percent of respondents said that recent events in ...
From a solutions focus, teens dont need a different perspective, [such as saying] This isnt the end of the world, you know," Bloodworth says. "They need tools to help them handle what does feel like the end of the world they knew. They need tools and help to get the attention and support they need in healthy and appropriate ways.". Raimundo, the mental health professional who used to cyberbully herself as a teen, agrees.. "I broke out of the cycle of digital self-harm by finally finding supports that listened to me and validated my story. People who I could speak openly and honestly to about engaging in digital self-harm, why I was doing it, and who would hold the space for me without judging me," she says. "People saw me as someone trying to ask for help but not knowing all the right words to do so. They saw those messages as something that was actually happening in my head and addressed it as such.". Raimundo now works as an online Peer Supporter for Stellas Place. "I really wanted to ...
Could my tendency to ruminate over the state of things-for example, what kind of father Ive been to my children, how I make my real estate business successful and avoid failure, and since I am a cancer survivor, how I keep cancer at bay-actually cause harm to my body?. "Shit happens," a close friend advised me, quoting Buddha. "That would be on his license plate.". She was advocating a different perspective on how I think about my experiences. For example, rather than view myself as a failure as a father, why not see that Im a father who is trying to do the right thing and Im imperfect. Rather than see me as permanently frail-"a delicate flower"-because of the array of health challenges Ive had, see myself as a resilient example of someone who has survived and moved through health challenge after health challenge. "You are a recovery machine," my doctor has said.. The point is our perspective about our experiences can influence how we incorporate them into our identities. Rather than owning ...
Travelling as a family allows experiences to be shared. It can add interest to family time together away from the pressures of work and education. You can gain different perspectives on places when travelling in a group with children. It is often easier to get to meet local people, people can be friendlier, and when picking educational experiences for children you often learn something yourself.

The study of microbes has, of course, been a sizzling area of research for just over 250 years in the West. Even as Louis Pasteur was mounting his theories of infection, at one time, a notable contemporary, Antoine Bechamps, was developing a different perspective on the idea. Bechamps observed tiny particles in blood that he said pervaded all living systems. These "microzymas," as he called them, were, he felt, the basic building blocks of life. It is from them, he claimed, that bacteria as well as the cellular components of our own bodies began ...
We are at the end of another year in which there has been more discussion of net failure than of its success. To a large extent, it s nonsense. There is no internet crisis . Some of the financial and mismanagement bubbles have deflated (there will be more) and many poorly conceived online activities are in trouble. But that has nothing to do with the basic strength and continuing growth of the internet.. On the other hand, from a different perspective, there are diseases for which an effective treatment is still to be found.. Statistics can be unreliable and confusing, but some trends are pretty clear. Worldwide hostcount data show somewhat slower growth in 2002 than in past years. Expansion never was exponential and we may be going through a more sober phase. The latest available indicator 16 percent growth in year 2002 is the lowest percentage in the net s history, but it can t be called slow by any standard. It s still much faster than the economy as a whole and of most other development ...

Were lucky if we like everything that we do. But many of us have to develop a willingness to like many of the activities were involved in. Is that unusual? Probably not. Nor does it matter. Acting as if we enjoy a menial task or an unusual pursuit offers us a different perspective on it. Just looking at it through more willing eyes changes not just how we see it, but how we feel about it. Often we discover that we can enjoy that which we dreaded before. ...
Special Note: Several weeks ago, I received two letters regarding gemach problems. For those of our readers who are unfamiliar with the term, gemachs are organizations found in every Torah community to help families who are in financial straits. Interestingly enough, the two letters that I received describe gemach problems from different perspectives - one speaks about the responsibilities of the donors, and the other about the responsibilities of the recipients. They each make valid points that should be addressed ...
What is to be learned? This is an immensely important lesson that this disease provides, and that is cooperation and coordination and preparation between nations. Countries that are wealthy and well prepared in some ways can be of greater assistance to those other nations at a distance, so that the home nation is protected. This provides a much different perspective of foreign aid than has been projected in years past. This provides an opportunity for cooperation as I have said, and coordination. It begins to bring about the value of individuals as intrinsically the same as anyone else; if two people have Ebola and one is worth 5 billion dollars, and one is only worth 50 cents in their physical assets and financial assets, truly they are equal because they are equally dangerous as carriers of this virus. They are equally valuable also as individuals who could carry this pathogen forward, and so their treatment must be equal. You would give the rich man the same treatment as you would the poor ...
Overall, I think this was one of the best submissions that I have critiqued in terms of overall appeal and style. This story had everything that I would look for in a thriller, sci fi, story. There were appealing characters and a mesmirizing plot (I for one wanted more to see what would happen) all told from different perspectives. I liked that the author basically asked the question: (1) how does a family continue on after a tragedy; (2) how does a twin, who always felt inferior feel once that rivalry is gone; (3) what ethical questions arise out of certain medical experiments; and finally (4) what is a person willing to risk to get a loved one back as well as what is someone willing to do to achieve greatness. I definitely wanted to read more and would purchase this as a full ...

It helps to get rid of the ambiguity. By making yourself the will of others, without ANY percievable benefit for ones self, instead of trying to make everyone else the extension of your will, one can see their environment in a different perspective. Im not saying athiests do not do this. One of my best friends, and his wife, are athiests. And they are two of the nicest people anyone could hope to meet. They accept others for who they are, and rarely judge anyone. They are good people. And we have no problems talking about anything, even our differences in beliefs. It is never an arguement or a debate, but just sharing eachothers truths with one another, to learn and grow ...

Osteoarthritis (OA) is diagnosed and managed primarily by general practitioners (GPs). OA guidelines recommend using clinical criteria, without x-ray, for diagnosis, and advising strengthening exercise, aerobic activity and, if appropriate, weight loss as first-line treatments. These recommendations are often not implemented by GPs. To facilitate GP uptake of guidelines, greater understanding of GP practice behaviour is required. This qualitative study identified key factors influencing implementation of these recommendations in the primary-care setting. Semi-structured interviews with eleven GPs were conducted, transcribed verbatim, coded by two independent researchers and analysed with an interpretive thematic approach using the COM-B model (Capability/Opportunity/Motivation-Behaviour) as a framework. Eleven themes were identified. Psychological capability themes: knowledge gaps, confidence to effectively manage OA, and skills to facilitate lifestyle change. Physical opportunity themes: system-related
