Public health professionals in the Midwest: a profile of connectivity and information technology skills. (1/190)

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess Internet connections and information technology skills of public health workers in the Midwest. METHODS: A questionnaire was mailed to 713 local health departments (LHDs) in the ten states of the Greater Midwest Region. RESULTS: Three hundred forty-four LHDs (48%) responded. Overall, 85% own a computer that would allow Internet access. Half provide Internet access to some or all staff. Of these, two-thirds use e-mail and half search the Web. One-half are linked to the State Health Department, and 30% are linked to other local health departments. Over half use CDC-Wonder; less than 20% search MEDLINE. Two-thirds of the respondents expressed an interest in MEDLINE training, and three-fourths are interested in learning more about the Internet. Sixty-nine percent of respondents planned to enhance electronic communication capacity within the next year. CONCLUSIONS: Public health practitioners need timely, convenient access to information to aid them in improving the health of the American public. A majority of public health departments in the Midwest are technically capable of connecting to the Internet. This technological capability, combined with an expressed desire by public health agencies to have workers become computer literate, suggests an important role for health sciences librarians.  (+info)

Users' evaluation of OncoDoc, a breast cancer therapeutic guideline delivered at the point of care. (2/190)

Despite the dissemination of computer-based "clinical practice guidelines" as decision support systems, low practical compliance rates are still observed. The reason commonly invoked is that such recommendations, suited to average patients, are not rules for all the patients. Rather than providing automatic decision support, OncoDoc allows the clinician to operationalize the implemented breast cancer therapeutic expertise through his hypertextual reading of the knowledge base. In this way, he has the opportunity to interpret the information provided in the context of his patient therefore controlling his categorization to the closest appropriate "average patient". After a four-month real-life experimentation of the system, a survey was conducted among the users. The observed compliance, significantly higher than the best figures found in the literature, and the clinicians objective and subjective evaluation of the system reinforced the implementation choices adopted in OncoDoc.  (+info)

Medcast: evaluation of an intelligent pull technology to support the information needs of physicians. (3/190)

This study reports the initial results of an evaluation of Medcast, a commercial medical information service that uses intelligent pull technology to deliver medical information to practicing physicians. Medical news, CME, and other information are transferred by modem nightly to the physician's computers where this information can be accessed at a convenient time. A survey was faxed to 195 subscribers to the system. A total of 73 (39%) responded. The results indicate that prior to implementation of the Medcast system, almost 40 percent of the respondents did not use their computers for professional activities because of time constraints, costs and computer literacy problems. After implementation of Medcast, almost 70 percent of the respondents used the system two or more hours per week. Ninety percent of the respondents felt that use of the system has enhanced their practice. These findings have important implications for future efforts to implement medical informatics applications to support the information needs of practicing physicians. Experience with intelligent pull technology that is relatively easy to use may be a good way to break down attitudes and barriers to the use of computer systems to support clinical practice and may prepare physicians for a wider use of the Internet to support their future information needs.  (+info)

Organizational and technological insight as important factors for successful implementation of IT. (5/190)

Politicians and hospital management in Sweden and Denmark focus on IT and especially Electronic Patient Record, EPR as a tool for changes that will lead to better economy as well as better quality and service to the patients. These changes are not direct effects of the new medium for patient records but indirect effects due to the possibilities embedded in the new technology. To ensure that the implementation is successful, i.e. leads to changes in organization structure and workflow, we need tools to prepare clinicians and management. The focus of this paper is the individual insight in technology and organization and it proposes a model to assess and categorize the possibilities of individuals and groups to participate in and make an implementation process powerful.  (+info)

The accessibility of information systems for patients: use of touchscreen information systems by 345 patients with cancer in Scotland. (6/190)

AIM: To examine cancer patients' use, and satisfaction with touchscreen information systems. By examining the experience of subgroups, to address issues of equality of access. PATIENTS: 345 patients starting radiotherapy at the Beatson Oncology Centre (BOC), Glasgow. METHODS: Patients were invited to use a touchscreen computer at the start of treatment. They were sent a printout of what they saw on screen. Patients had open access to the system. Data were collected at recruitment, intervention, 3 weeks and 3 months. Predictor variables included: patients' demographics, information preferences, technology use, and psychological state. Outcome variables included: use and views of the computer and printout. RESULTS: Younger, broadsheet readers with previous computer use were more likely to find the system easy to use. Older, tabloid readers were more likely to find the content new and relevant. DISCUSSION: We need to make systems adapt to users' different needs. More effort should be made to provide affordable information for older, generally less literate and technologically less literate groups in suitable locations.  (+info)

Which literature retrieval method is most effective for GPs? (7/190)

BACKGROUND: Evidence-based medicine requires new skills of physicians, including literature searching. OBJECTIVE: To determine which literature retrieving method is most effective for GPs: the printed Index Medicus; Medline through Grateful Med; or Medline on CD-ROM. METHODS: The design was a randomized comparative study. In a continuing medical education course, three groups of health care professionals (87 GPs and 16 other health care professionals) used one of the literature retrieval methods to retrieve citations on four search topics related to general practice. For the analysis in pairs, we used the search results of the 75 participants who completed all four assignments. As outcome measures, we used precision, recall and an overall search quality score; we also had a post-course questionnaire on personal characteristics, experience with computers, handling medical literature and satisfaction with course instruction and search results. RESULTS: The recall and overall search quality scores in the Index Medicus groups (n = 32) were higher (P = <0.001) than those in the CD-ROM groups (n = 31). In addition, the search quality scores in the Grateful Med groups (n = 12) were higher (P < 0.003) than those in the CD-ROM groups. There were no differences in precision. CONCLUSION: In the period 1994-1997, the printed Index Medicus was the most effective literature retrieval method for GPs. For inexperienced GPs, there is a need for training in electronic literature retrieval methods.  (+info)

A two-year experience teaching computer literacy to first-year medical students using skill-based cohorts. (8/190)

Because it is widely accepted that providing information online will play a major role in both the teaching and practice of medicine in the near future, a short formal course of instruction in computer skills was proposed for the incoming class of students entering medical school at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. The syllabus was developed on the basis of a set of expected outcomes, which was accepted by the dean of medicine and the curriculum committee for classes beginning in the fall of 1997. Prior to their arrival, students were asked to complete a self-assessment survey designed to elucidate their initial skill base; the returned surveys showed students to have computer skills ranging from complete novice to that of a systems engineer. The classes were taught during the first three weeks of the semester to groups of students separated on the basis of their knowledge of and comfort with computers. Areas covered included computer basics, e-mail management, MEDLINE, and Internet search tools. Each student received seven hours of hands-on training followed by a test. The syllabus and emphasis of the classes were tailored to the initial skill base but the final test was given at the same level to all students. Student participation, test scores, and course evaluations indicated that this noncredit program was successful in achieving an acceptable level of comfort in using a computer for almost all of the student body.  (+info)

The Computer Literacy Program for Immigrant Women provides 2 ten-session (3-hours each session) to 15-20 women per session per year and focuses on basic computer skills, advanced job search training, and online job applications. Expansion and upgrades this year include expanding a dedicated computer lab, providing more laptops for women to take home, and providing additional trainers to support participants outside of class. Many women immigrants lacked opportunities for education in their home countries. An important piece of education currently is computer literacy, or the ability to access and utilize computer and broadband services. It is now considered the norm to apply online for jobs, and those who apply online are much more likely to find work than those who do not. Basic computer literacy programs for immigrants have been shown to improve the well-being of immigrants and mitigate stress through providing employment opportunities, strategies to overcome barriers, and connection with others.

The private sector also has significant incentives to improve CS education. Technology vendors hire computer science students, so developing a pool of strong candidates has an effect on the quality of their products. A recent cap on H1-B workers visas has created a shortage of labor for these companies. Furthermore, policymakers have recently turned their attention to technology. In the recent encryption debate, much confusion has been caused by a general lack of technical knowledge on the part of the public and lawmakers. Companies like Apple have had to make significant efforts to try to raise awareness of the need for encryption, gaining significant media attention in their recent battle with the FBI. Improved general computer knowledge would greatly aid in policy decisions and PR needs related to these companies. In light of these incentives, the private sector has been a leader in bolstering computer science education. Tech companies have also worked to improve computer literacy and ...

Who invented the computer? is not a question with a simple answer. The real answer is that many inventors contributed to the history of computers and that a computer is a complex piece of machinery made up of many parts, each of which can be considered a separate invention. This series covers many of the major milestones in computer history (but not all of them) with a concentration on the history of personal home computers. ...

And this is an issue with a lot of education, so the problem wont go away just by throwing some courses into the curriculum, or by ranting sarcastically on the internet (especially as the educational rant has little or no chance to get back to the people it is about, since they dont have the know-how to get to it, as argued by the rant). Like many other things, computers are not intuitive for a lot of people, and neither is the culture around them (the lingo, the close interaction with the computer etc). Things that work: an approach which is designed around learners and their learning styles (for example, I learn a lot via analogy - the hardware is like the brain and the OS is like the nervous system - or by doing, so someone SHOWING me an ms-dos command panel + action and the equivalent in the normal environment did wonders for my understanding of GUI and what it is, etc), building on learners previous experiences/ knowledge, and an ability on the part of the expert to go out of her/ his ...

Significant differences in awareness of self-rated fat intake compared to others and intention to change were found between intervention and control at posttest. Tailored intervention was better appreciated, rated as more personally relevant, and had more subjective impact on opinion and intention to change than general nutrition information. Both groups read most of information and rated them attractive to read. Tailored program was more likely to be used again and rated information as more personally relevant and newer to them. No effect of computer literacy on perceived attractiveness of computer program; however, those with lower computer literacy also reported that the program was more difficult to use ...
Digital concerns underpin many of the UNs Sustainable Development Goals. Gender equality, good health, quality education, industry innovation, smart and sustainable cities: these all require strong information and communications technology systems to become a reality.. For all of this to happen, developing countries will have to overcome the digital divide. This refers to the gap between those who are connected - first to voice and now to Internet services - and those who arent.But theres a problem. We simply dont have the data in developing countries, and in global statistics, to know what the status quo is or whether the digital divide is being closed. So we dont know if information and communications technologies are contributing to the achievement of the SDG targets.. The AfterAccess Survey, which was run across 16 countries in the Global South in 2017, fills some of these data gaps. The survey tells us who has access to and uses mobile phones for what purposes. It also reveals data ...

In 1991, the virus problem was sufficiently interesting to attract the large marketing companies. Symantec launched Norton Anti-Virus in December 1990, and Central Point launched CPAV in April 1991. This was soon followed by Xtree, Fifth Generation and a couple of others. Most of these companies were rebadging other companys programs (nearly all Israeli). The other big problem of 1991 was glut. In December 1990, there were about 200-300 viruses; by December 1991 there were 1,000 (there may have been even more written that year, because by February, we were counting 1,300).. Glut means lots of viruses, and this causes a number of unpleasant problems. In every program, there must be various limitations. In particular, a scanner has to store search strings in memory, and under DOS, there is only 640KB to use (and DOS, the network shell and the programs user interface might take half of that).. Another Glut problem, is that some scanners slow down in proportion to the number of viruses scanned ...

7. Tech 7-11s. As we have seen over the past few columns, technology can definitely help in bridging the digital divide through the right mix of computing and communications. Technology needs to become, to borrow a phrase from IBM, the next utility for the people and enterprises on the wrong side of the digital divide. The distribution point for this tech utility needs to be in every neighbourhood and industrial cluster.. Think of these hubs as the equivalent of tech 7-11s. The 7-11 (which stands for 7 am to 11 pm - the store timings) chain of stores dot many of Asias cities. Most of what families need for their daily consumption is available at these stores.

I had basic computer skills but yet I consulted certain friends who could assist me in refining my computer skills. It was only after a while that I realized that I needed to have a plan and schedule to achieve results in a time-bound manner. Hence I prepared a detailed plan and time table. It was a step by step guide that I gave myself to go about my research work. I also trained myself to become a persistent investigator rather than being frustrated by initial failures and giving up easily. In dealing with problems, I developed myself a method. First I would think about the problem and with the assistance of relevant information, arrive at a solution that seemed to me most effective and appropriate. I did not end my problem-solving exercise at this point. Instead, I then thought about what other possible solutions could be. I also thought about the negative aspects and possible errors in the solution of my choice. Only after this process is completed did I finalize my solution option. I was ...

In their introduction to the edited collected Race After the Internet, Lisa Nakamura and Peter A. Chow-White trace the emergence of multiple digital divides in the wake of what they call at different moments the biotechnical turn, the technobiological turn, and the techno-genetic turn-a cultural, institutional, and scholarly transformation that privileges the technological and specifically the digital over other forms of knowledge, mediation, and interaction(4). They open the collection by declaring the importance of an expansion of critical race scholarship that addresses the conceptual and experiential imbrication of race and the digital. Turning to the African American Lives series produced for PBS by Henry Louis Gates as a paradigmatic example, Nakamura and Chow-White argue that Gates investment in digitally distributed genealogical inquiries about racial identity highlights the ways in which race has itself become a digital medium, a distinctive set of informatic codes, networked ...

When attempting to tutor seniors in computer literacy, one is well advised to first assess the clients awareness. By awareness, I mean a general tendency to look at the environment and to see what is there. We are all creatures of habit who work with observed patterns to reduce our mental workload. For instance, every day I call my dog and say, Lets go check the mail. He bounces around and happily walks with me to our communal mailbox. Of course he has no idea of what mail is or why one should check it. His knowledge of English is limited, but he does recognize the pattern of sounds in Lets go check the mail, and he associates it with a short walk and sniffing exercise. People are the same way.. Many times I have watched new clients do simple tasks in their normal way without my help. I do this to try to understand their current level of expertise and awareness. Often they will have a pattern of clicks and mouse moves that gets a job done, but if I interrupt the flow of their clicks, they ...

The Coalition for Refugees from Burma (CRB) has secured a grant from the City of Seattle through the Technology Matching Fund (TMF) for the third time to continue their computer literacy programs. When the CRB began in 2009 there was a larger community of refugees and immigrants from Burma in the Seattle area. Since then, though, a lot of them have moved to more affordable cities. According to the Citys Office of Immigrants and Refugee Affairs, as of October 2015, there are 261 refugees from Burma in Washington state. Five years prior, in ...

Omitted from this list are tutorials where the sole purpose is to demonstrate or instruct in the use of a specific resource-How to Search in PubMed, CINAHL, etc. Also omitted are resources in the format of guides, handouts, traditional web pages, and (most) TILT-based tutorials. Committee members began collecting information literacy tutorials that address the S/ET standards in the fall of 2007, searching the Web generally, as well as the web sites of college and university libraries. By its nature, this list will remain a work in progress. It is by no means exhaustive, nor is it intended to be. Our object is not to create a catalog of all SE/T tutorials, but to find and share useful examples. We encourage ...

Background: The unequal access, challenges and outcomes related to using technology have created the digital divide, which leads to health inequalities. The aim of this study was to apply the Ophelia (Optimizing Health Literacy and Access) process, a widely used systematic approach to whole of community co-design, to the digital context to generate solutions to improve health and equity outcomes.Methods: This was a mixed method study. A cross-sectional survey was undertaken at 3 health organizations in Victoria, Australia using the eHealth Literacy Questionnaire (eHLQ) as a needs assessment tool. Cluster analysis was conducted to identify subgroups with varying eHealth literacy needs. These data, combined with semi-structured interviews with clients, were used to generate vignettes representing different eHealth literacy profiles. The vignettes were presented at co-design workshops with clients and health professionals to generate solutions for digital health services improvement. Expert validation and
We conducted an experimental study to determine to what extent computer skill learners can benefit from generating self-explanation with the aid of different computer-based visualization technologies. Self-explanation was stimulated with dynamic visualization (Screencast), static visualization (Screenshot), or verbal instructions only, and compared to a control group with no self-explanation instructions. Sixty-two subjects were assigned to these four conditions for learning HTML fundamentals. Two quizzes were used to test learning outcomes. In comparison to the control condition, performance was best with dynamic visualization and static visualization. The self-explanation condition without visualization did not attain statistical significance in comparison to the control condition. Qualitative data collected from a learning experience survey regarding the subjects opinions about self-explanation prompts showed that subjects in different treatment groups gave similar responses about how they benefited
Carrie Donovan posted a message to the ili list, about a meeting (24 June at 5pm) to look at good questions to ask in the USAs National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) (in higher education) which could indicate engagement with information literacy. Although most readers of this blog wont be able to attend the meeting, I think its an interesting development (and contrasts sadly with the National Student Survey in the UK, which just has a question about satisfaction with library resources). Carrie Donovan wrote NSSE currently includes questions that gauge students involvement in undergraduate research, higher-order learning, and reflective learning activities, and has experimented with some questions about information literacy, but this new project will be the NSSEs first foray into a fully developed module that is dedicated to measuring information literacy education across the undergraduate curriculum. In preparation, NSSE researchers are hoping to gather input broadly from librarians ...
In response to the increasing call for information literacy instruction in colleges and universities, and the need to address this from the viewpoint of diverse disciplines, the STS Information Literacy Committee (STS-IL) decided to examine, review, and collect relevant science resources that can be used as part of information literacy instruction to science students and faculty. STS-IL chose the wiki format in clear-eyed recognition that no single person or committee can definitively capture the rapidly shifting list of excellent resources, and that those who avail themselves of this particular resource will almost inevitably ask the question, Why didnt they include X? Now you can add X yourself for the enlightenment of your colleagues! We welcome your additions. STS-IL developed this site and manages it. Please contact Committee Co-Chairs Betsy Hopkins and Elizabeth Bermanfor more information. ...
There were the 10 students in my class (100% turnout!) and Pam Bing, from CILASS (see previous entry), so as usual with this class we sat in a circle and Jacqui described her research and in particular, as we were focusing on questionnaires this week, on issues to do with questionnaire design. Jacqui had, as part of her work for her part time MBA, administered a questionnaire to level 3 course leaders at De Montfort University, asking them about how important they thought information literacy was, whether they taught and assessed it etc. Since it had emerged that the lecturers thought that it was pretty important, but teaching and assessing it were not so widely done, it had impacted information literacy policy in the university. She also mentioned some more recent developments: a couple of questionnaires to specific departments, and the fact that information literacy is now being included in the Universitys Programme Development Handbook (which people developing new courses are supposed to ...

One of the key concepts of the NCLB legislation was the improvement of student achievement in academics with the use of technology (NCLB, 2001). Ironically, the NCLB mandate of accountability has not provided the necessary resources for achieving its goals, and students with disabilities are, in fact, being left behind. Therefore, the law is intensifying the digital divide. The impact of legislative policies such as this on students with disabilities, while well intended, has led to barriers of access and equity that prevent teachers from effectively integrating the technology. The focus will be barriers to access and equity in types of special education technology, pedagogy and teacher training, and Universal Design for Learning. This paper will review relevant law, address implications of the digital divide on students with disabilities, and will conclude with recommendations for bridging the gap over the troubled waters of inequity and discrimination.. ...

25 September 2020, London For the fifth year in a row the mobile industry has increased its impact across all 17 SDGs enabling essential services for people and businesses. 2019 was the industrys most impactful year as the industry increased its SDG impact score by 4.7 percentage points. With over half of the worlds population in lockdown this year, the worlds dependence on digital technology to access essential communications has become acutely evident.. The rapid expansion of mobile coverage in recent years resulted in 5.1 billion individuals using a mobile phone and 3.8 billion using mobile internet.

What sort of information literacy sessions have you run during the last few months?. A lot of my regular work has shifted online - this has included one-to-one tutorials, synchronous sessions for anything from 5-100 students and asynchronous learning materials. Topics have largely been around searching for electronic information, evaluating information and referencing.. For tutorials, I have used whatever works - mostly Microsoft Teams, Blackboard Collaborate and Skype. For synchronous teaching sessions, I have mostly been using Blackboard Collaborate, which has worked really smoothly for the most part. I need to become more familiar with Teams for this.. Whats gone well with shifting to online teaching?. Gratitude! Many people have been really pleased (and surprised) that the library can continue to offer teaching and support and are grateful for everything that we can offer.. Interactive elements have largely gone well, but not always in the way I have expected! Finding ways of facilitating ...

Creating this atmosphere is comes from both class structure and personal attitude. Ive failed plenty of times in front of a class. When I started teaching information literacy a few years ago, I dropped canned searches for our instructions sessions. At the time it was done to increase the relevance of the material and engagement of the students. But what it has created is an atmosphere where failure is okay. Failure is a talking point. I welcome the unsuccessful search (unless its because I cant spell and now the class knows). It provides the opportunity to talk about why searches fail or dont get the desire results and how to adjust for additional searches. Failure in a search shows that the research process is messy and even libraries arent perfect. We try and fail just like them. Ive seen it successful break down barriers for students asking for help. If I got stuck, and they got stuck, they are more willing to ask for help. Failure equalizes the power relationship.. ...

OBJECTIVES: To explore general practitioners attitudes towards and use of a computer program for assessing genetic risk of cancer in primary care. DESIGN: Qualitative analysis of semistructured interviews and video recordings of simulated consultations. PARTICIPANTS: Purposive sample of 15 general practitioners covering a range of computer literacy, interest in genetics, age, and sex. INTERVENTIONS: Each doctor used the program in two consultations in which an actor played a woman concerned about her family history of cancer. Consultations were videotaped and followed by interviews with the video as a prompt to questioning. MAIN OUTCOME MESURESs: Use of computer program in the Consultation. RESULTS: The program was viewed as an appropriate application of information technology because of the complexity of cancer genetics and a sense of guideline chaos in primary care. Doctors found the program easy to use, but it often affected their control of the consultation. They needed to balance their desire to
In this article, we will present computer programing and see the actual way it may be applied to command the way your computer operates. Typically, computer newbies arent worried in controlling your computer, new computer users are commonly concerned in learning more about how it all works. Nonetheless they may be blown away to learn that Matlab仧冘 increases computer knowledge overall and it can help to decrease the fearfulness and intimidation related to utilizing a new computer.. Computer programing is developing a succession of commands which allow your computer to accomplish some measures. The people who system computer systems (known as computer Programers) utilize a programing language to talk with a computer. You might have often heard of a few of these dialects in the past such as Visible Basic, C , or Fortran. There are numerous other programing vocabulary and neither one is best compared to other. Just about all are competent at carrying out the identical tasks and accomplishing ...

We Are Iran is a seamlessly edited multi-voiced portrait of contemporary Iran, translated from Farsi, using that nations weblogs as its primary source. Iran has more web diarists than most countries, and in cyberspace many Iranians find a freedom to express opinions that is not available to them in print. Theirs is not the Iran of bearded ayatollahs and thuggish militias, but a country that has educated itself to the point where it finds the Islamist fundamentalists antiquated and laughable, where adult literacy (and computer literacy) is higher than in many European states, and where 70 per cent of the population is under thirty and keen to usher in a new Iran. Their voices - infused with Persian lyricism - are refreshing, utterly at odds with the grim vision of the country peddled by Western governments. They talk of their conflicts with the law, the condition of women, of repression and its subversion, the police and media, of singing and dancing, of snatched romance and nostalgia for lost ...

Bean Core, core developers of the BitBean Digital Currency and network, have launched new custom DNS servers - that makes it super easy for new users of the network - to stand up new nodes (Wallets).. Up until now, BitBean has relied on hard-coded nodes in its source code, to boot-strap new nodes joining the network. However, nodes come and go, and the original hard-coded nodes in the current release of the BitBean software - are no longer active on the network. This has left many new users joining the network, with only one option - a configuration file with current active nodes. The process of creating and knowing where to place a configuration file, is not always obvious for users of different platforms and different levels of computer literacy.. The new DNS seeder servers, allows new users to automatically join their BitBean nodes to the network. The need and confusion of a configuration file and knowing where to find other active nodes is no longer an issue.. In the last two weeks, ...

This study investigated the effects of data presentation and an educators level in the organizational hierarchy on the acceptance of educational program evaluation findings. Educational administrators, principals, teachers, and evaluators (n=210) read and rated a simulated evaluation report on a pilot computer literacy program. Four types of presentations were used: no data; percentage data; percentage and graphic data; and percentage graphic, and statistical inference data. Subjects rated the report, the fictitious evaluator, and the level of their agreement with four report recommendations. Responses were analyzed by multivariate analysis of variance and a post hoc discriminant functioning analysis. Results indicated: (1) the method of data presentation had no effect on the subjects responses; (2) there was a statistically significant effect related to a subjects organizational position; and (3) the interaction between the presentation method and position variables was
