The Relationship Between Leadership/Followership In Staff Nurses And Employment Setting, Elaine S. Vandoren

Three hospital and home care agencies belonging to a private nonprofit corporation in the Midwest provided data. A total of 136 surveys were used in data analysis; 57% of distributed surveys were returned.

Acute Blood Pressure Responses To Static And Dynamic Exercise: Racial Differences, Reuben Leon Wright

Theses and Dissertations in Urban Services - Urban Education

African Americans have a higher incidence of hypertension than other racial groups. Furthermore, some research suggests that normotensive individuals who exhibit exaggerated blood pressure (BP) responses to exercise may be at risk for future hypertension. This study sought to determine if normotensive African Americans exhibited exaggerated BP responses to static exercise or dynamic exercise relative to Caucasian Americans and Asian Americans. Thirty normotensive subjects participated from each of the three racial groups (15 males and 15 females). Subjects held 30% of maximal voluntary contraction (right knee extension) for 3 minutes, and BP was recorded during the third minute. On a ...

Making Your Practice And Facility More User-Friendly For Those With Disabilities, Rebecca Clow, Loren Will

Iowa State University Veterinarian

As veterinarians, our duties extend beyond practicing medicine. We must realize that the veterinary profession requires excellent client communication and we must alter our way of practice to meet client needs. We must do more than compromise, empathize, and explain terms on a client's level. It is critical that we take into consideration the special needs of disabled clients. This paper will discuss some of the legal and ethical aspects of communicating with disabled clients while making your practice more user-friendly to those with these special needs. Dog guides and their care will also be discussed briefly.

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Greetings from the office of the ISU Veterinarian! As I sit and reflect on my time as editor of this unique publication, I am struck by how fast time seems to have gone since I took on this task a volume ago. At that time, I felt certain I was up to the job if only I could figure out exactly what I was supposed to do when! Three issues later, I have a clearer idea of what it takes to make this journal a reality, and perhaps I would be less apt to agree to the job had I ...

How The East Met The West, Leah Braas Jan 1998

How The East Met The West, Leah Braas

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Recently, in August to be exact, I moved away from everything that I knew and loved and came to Iowa. At first I didn't really understand the transition that would take place in the two-day, 1100 mile trek across the United States. After all, I wasn't leaving the country, just moving to Iowa. Just moving to Iowa. What a statement, I left the land of concrete highways and moved to the land of large, silver belt buckles, and "just moving to Iowa" began to have a whole new meaning.
