Evaluating The Quick Fix: Weight Loss Drugs And Cellular Respiration, Pamela L. Freeman, Jennifer A. Maki, Kara R. Thoemke, Monica H. Lamm, Clark R. Coffman

Monica H. Lamm

One key to student success in introductory and cell biology courses is a foundational knowledge of cellular respiration. This is a content area in which students often harbor misconceptions that make cellular respiration particularly challenging to teach. Conventional approaches presenting cellular respiration as a complex series of isolated steps creates a situation where students tend to memorize the steps but fail to appreciate the bigger picture of how cells transform and utilize energy. Instructors frequently struggle to find ways to motivate students and encourage deeper learning. The learning goals of this cellular respiration lesson are to understand energy transfer in ...

Bermuda: Public Health Insurance, Maxwell Mead 2018 Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois

Bermuda: Public Health Insurance, Maxwell Mead

Global Public Health

Bermuda, a British island territory located in the remote North Atlantic, remains a serviceable country to its citizens. However, it still lacks a national healthcare system: marking it as a difficult country to live in. Despite acknowledging this issue, Bermudan officials have made few attempts to fix the problem. This, in turn, has made Bermuda the highest annual spender on health per capita in the world at $11,952. As such, the cost of living is rather high in Bermuda, sitting at a full 94.86% higher than the cost of living in the United States. All of this makes ...

Commercial mobile apps for health behavior change are flourishing in the marketplace, but little evidence exists to support their use. This paper summarizes methods for evaluating the content, usability, and efficacy of commercially available health apps. Content analyses can be used to compare app features with clinical guidelines, evidence-based protocols, and behavior change techniques. Usability testing can establish how well an app functions and serves its intended purpose for a target population. Observational studies can explore the association between use and clinical and behavioral outcomes. Finally, efficacy testing can establish whether a commercial app impacts an outcome of interest via ...

Is Marijuana Beneficial For Prevention And Treatment Of Diabetes.Pdf, Rui Cao

Rui Cao

Marijuana is classified as Cannabis saiva L, one type of hemp. Traditionally, Marijuana is considered as Schedule I drug due to its acute bad effects on human health. However, its medical use has been widely recognized today. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (9-THC) is a compound extracted from Marijuana, which has been used in several drugs approved by United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 9-THC functions through cannabinoid receptor in neural system or peripheral tissues. For diabetes patients, 9-THC has been reported to have preventative or treatment effects. In this paper, we will review recent research progress in association between cannabis use and ...

Data Aggregation Reporting Tool For Implementation In Home Health Fall Reduction Program, Jose Alberto Cruz 2017 University of San Francisco

Data Aggregation Reporting Tool For Implementation In Home Health Fall Reduction Program, Jose Alberto Cruz

Master's Projects and Capstones

Abstract

Falls are a major preventable problem in healthcare that affects people of all ages but disproportionately affects the frail and elderly. Fall reduction programs play a significant role in reducing falls and fall related injuries and are a critical component in Home Health settings. This project takes place in a home health and hospice services agency. The purpose of the project consisted of aggregating fall data for benchmarking metrics to bring the agency’s Fall Reduction Program closer to compliance with state and national fall prevention guidelines. Two hundred and three fall event reports were analyzed and a problem ...

INTRODUCTION: Atrial fibrillation (AF), the world's most common arrhythmia, often goes undetected and untreated in low-resource communities, including India, where AF epidemiology is undefined. AF is an important risk factor for stroke, which plagues an estimated 1.6 million Indians annually. As such, early detection of AF and management of high-risk patients is critically important to decrease stroke burden in individuals with AF. This study aims to describe the epidemiology of AF in Anand District, Gujarat, India, characterise the clinical profile of individuals who are diagnosed with AF and determine the performance of two mobile technologies for community-based AF ...


Deconstructing The Visa: Academic Accommodations And Self-Disclosure, Catherine A. Smith PhD 2017 University of Wisconsin-Madison

Deconstructing The Visa: Academic Accommodations And Self-Disclosure, Catherine A. Smith Phd

Proceedings from the Document Academy

College students living with disabilities must disclose, manage, share, and communicate their personal health information in order to receive academic accommodations. The academic gatekeepers to this process are disability services specialists who are important “third parties:” non-family members, non-friends, who work with clinical information to meet the educational needs of their student clients. The author reports the results of the first of several studies of different stakeholders in the academic accommodations process and their attitudes about Personal health records (PHRs). Semistructured interviews were conducted between January and April, 2013, with 17 Disabilities Services (DS) specialists at 2 different public 4-year ...


Perceptions Of Emr Documentation In The Home Setting, Catherine Hupf 2017 University of Tennessee Health Science Center

Perceptions Of Emr Documentation In The Home Setting, Catherine Hupf

Applied Research Projects

The use of technology in healthcare is ever increasing in our hospitals, doctor’s offices, and clinics. Studies have been done to ascertain the perceptions of patients on the use of technology in the places that provide them care. This project was done for a population that does not always receive care where the clinician is. The care is in their home by clinicians who are using laptop computers and documenting in the EMR. Home care and hospice patients or their caregivers were asked to complete a survey with seven questions scored with a 5-point Likert scale to find that ...

Implementing Computerized St-Segment Analysis Utilizing 5-Lead Ecg Cables During The Perioperative Period For Myocardial Ischemia Detection In Patients At Risk For Cardiovascular Disease, Lauren Robertson

Doctoral Nursing Capstone Projects

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the leading causes of death in the United States (U.S.) annually (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2011). Mississippi has a disproportionately higher percentage of citizens likely to have CVD (Mississippi State Department of Health [MSDH], n.d.). The numerous stressors related to surgery are alone enough to increase the demand of the heart and lead to ischemia of the myocardium. Surgical stressors combined with preexisting CVD can exponentially increase the risk of ischemia. It is estimated that over a third of all surgical patients have ischemic heart disease. Puelacher et al. (2015 ...

The Development Of A Wayfinding Smart Phone Application As A Large Healthcare Facility Investment Opportunity, Jessie Fortson Marshall

Doctoral Nursing Capstone Projects

Health care is a continually growing field. New hospitals are constantly being built, while older facilities are experiencing renovation and expansion. With this growth comes a set of difficulties for patients as they try to navigate through large, multi-building facilities. Most large facilities have multiple parking garages, numerous buildings, and medical towers with an unending number of floors. Patients are forced to rely on directional signage to find their destination that is often insufficient. Attempting to navigate through large facilities is often overwhelming for visitors leading to frustration and stress.

New technology has allowed a convenient solution to this problem ...
