Assessing The Readiness Of Nairobi Deaf Youth To Accept A Best-Practice Hiv/Aids Intervention, Ke'ala Morrell 2014 Providence College

Assessing The Readiness Of Nairobi Deaf Youth To Accept A Best-Practice Hiv/Aids Intervention, Ke'ala Morrell

Annual Undergraduate Conference on Health and Society

After nearly forty years of HIV/AIDS research in the global community, data on HIV/AIDS in the Deaf population is still disproportionately neglected. No surveillance system is in place to monitor prevalence, awareness or mode of HIV infection in the Deaf community. Additionally, prevention and education interventions have yet to be tailored to meet the specific needs of this highly vulnerable population.

Purpose: This project attempted to assess the readiness of the Nairobi Deaf youth community to accept a best-practice HIV/AIDS intervention. The broad objective of this research was to assess HIV awareness, perceptions and behaviors of Deaf ...


Defining Obesity: An Argument For The Social Environment Perspective, Meghan McInnis 2014 Providence College

Defining Obesity: An Argument For The Social Environment Perspective, Meghan Mcinnis

Annual Undergraduate Conference on Health and Society

It is well documented that obesity is a growing problem in the U.S. and worldwide. By 2010, 35.9% of U.S. adults age 20 and older were obese (Overweight and Obesity, CDC). Obesity has been associated with many health problems, including hypertension, type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis, stroke, and cardiac disease (Lucey, 2008, p.202). What has just been described is the traditional, medicalized narrative of obesity. In this narrative, obesity is viewed as an epidemic that demands an immediate and widespread response (Lucey, 2008, p.202). The blame is placed largely on individuals, while social factors, such as ...

Optimal Screening Approaches - Coordinating Optimal Screening Programs In Canada: A Multifacted Approach, Eric Chen, Hamza Qamar

The Meducator

Disease screening is the process of testing asymptomatic individuals for the risk or presence of disease. However, the advent of advanced screening technologies in recent decades poses a challenge to the Canadian health system. The lack of a consistent screening policy among Canadian provinces and poor adherence to screening guidelines have compounded the challenge. The McMaster Health Forum convened a stakeholder dialogue on October 17, 2013 with regards to supporting optimal screening practices in Canada. In consultation with stakeholders, the Forum created an issue brief describing the problem, three elements of a comprehensive approach to address this problem, and key ...

Jurjus 2014 Himmelfarb Health Sciences Library, The George Washington University

Improving Anatomical Knowledge Retention In Medical Students Entering The Surgery And Obstetrics And Gynecology Clinical Rotations By Nesting Interactive Modules, Samantha Ahle, Jill Krapf, Kirsten Marie Brown, Juliet Lee, Gisela Butera, Ellen Goldman, Myriam Ferzli, Rosalyn A. Jurjus

GW Research Days 2014

Background: It is well documented in the medical education literature that students retain minimal anatomy knowledge when transitioning from pre-clinical didactics to clinical application on the wards. In a previous study at our own institution we were able to quantify this knowledge deficit in students on surgical clerkships, specifically surgery and obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN). Using our previous data, we designed an integrated, nested clinical teaching model utilizing e-modules to review clinically relevant surgical anatomy during their clinical rotations.

Objective: The goal of this study is to evaluate the impact of a newly designed method of teaching clinically relevant ...


An Evaluation Of The Utility Of A Hybrid Objective Structured Clinical Examination For The Use Of Assessing Residents Enrolled In Mcmaster University's Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program, Vanja Gavranic 2014 McMaster University

An Evaluation Of The Utility Of A Hybrid Objective Structured Clinical Examination For The Use Of Assessing Residents Enrolled In Mcmaster University's Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program, Vanja Gavranic

Open Access Dissertations and Theses

Introduction: McMaster University’s orthopaedic surgery residency program implemented the OSCE as an assessment tool in 2010; this study evaluates the first four OSCEs administered to residents. The OSCEs were composed of knowledge-testing stations, which are normally not included in this testing format, and performance-testing stations. Recruiting enough faculty evaluators challenged the ability to feasibly implement this examination format. Knowledge-testing stations were incorporated since they do not require evaluators to be present. Reliability was assessed, and the correlation between knowledge-testing station scores and performance-testing station scores was determined. The ability of the OSCE to discriminate between residents in different post-graduate ...

Empathy, Self-Reflection, And Curriculum Choice, Suely Grosseman, Mohammadreza Hojat, Pamela M. Duke, Stewart Mennin, Steven Rosenzweig, Dennis Novack

Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning

We administered the Jefferson Scale of Empathy and the Groningen Reflection Ability Scale to 61 of 64 entering medical students who self-selected a problem-based learning curricular track and to 163 of 198 who self-selected a lecture-based track (response rates of 95.3% and 82.3%, respectively, with no statistically significant differences in mean age or sex). Mean empathy and self-reflection ability scores were significantly higher among students who chose problem-based learning. Women scored higher than men in empathy. Women choosing problem-based learning had the highest empathy scores. Studies comparing students’ performance and achievements in different curricular tracks should consider differences ...

Students’ Experiences In Interdisciplinary Problem-Based Learning: A Discourse Analysis Of Group Interaction, Rintaro Imafuku, Ryuta Kataoka, Mitsuori Mayahara, Hisayoshi Suzuki, Takuya Saiki

Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning

Interdisciplinary problem-based learning (PBL) aims to provide students with opportunities to develop the necessary skills to work with different health professionals in a collaborative manner. This discourse study examined the processes of collective knowledge construction in Japanese students in the tutorials. Analyses of video-recorded data elicited from three multidisciplinary cohorts and their learning portfolios provided insights into their participation and introspection during the discussions. The results indicate there were two patterns of knowledge construction: (a) co-constructions between students from different disciplines and (b) elaborations between students from the same discipline. Their learning processes were mediated by their cultural assumptions, professional ...


Gaining A New Respect For The Other Guys: Scripted Scenarios For Inter Professional Education In Paediatric Emergencies, Ann Lazarsfeld-Jensen, Donna Bridges 2014 Edith Cowan University

Gaining A New Respect For The Other Guys: Scripted Scenarios For Inter Professional Education In Paediatric Emergencies, Ann Lazarsfeld-Jensen, Donna Bridges

Australasian Journal of Paramedicine

Objectives: This project aimed to find ways of staging and evaluating simulations as a tool of Interprofessional Education. A series of scripted paediatric emergencies was used to create an intense learning environment to explore knowledge exchange and shared learning between GP registrars and paramedics. Although simulation is a familiar tool in medical education, its use in interprofessional education (IPE) is difficult to facilitate because of its many dimensions.

Methods: A complex set of observational methods was utilised comprising contemporaneous focus groups, questionnaires, video observation and participant feedback. These multiple methods captured richly descriptive data through triangulation, to overcome the problem ...

Objectives

Simulation has become an established method for education and training of Emergency Medical Services personnel in different skills such as advanced airway techniques, also in evaluation and initial care of stroke patients and in pre-hospital trauma. Simulation can be a useful method to improve learning. To our knowledge, there are only a few studies that relate simulation to effect on clinical skills. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of simulation on the clinical competence in a pre-hospital trauma care course for ambulance nurses.

Methods

The study was performed with a before-after design. Seventeen ambulance ...
