Our Love For The Ocean Has Rooted Us Here, Jessica Rehrig 2017 UNECOM student

Our Love For The Ocean Has Rooted Us Here, Jessica Rehrig

Akesis

Harun Yahya once said,

"I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth, then I ask myself the same question."

This quote echoes a deeper meaning that is intertwined with the human experience, the human connection - to people, to culture, to memory. Often in life we move for school, travel for work, explore different countries for adventure, but we always come back "home". We are all rooted in somewhere or someone, and those connections and relationships shape us into who we are today and give life meaning.

The Opposite Of Rhetoric, Jack C. Lewis 2017 UNECOM

The Opposite Of Rhetoric, Jack C. Lewis

Akesis

There are a handful of moments from my past that continue to motivate me to pursue this medical education. This one in particular, telling a family that there is nothing more we can do for their deceased loved one, left me wanting to say much more than is professionally acceptable. And when I ask “why am I subjecting myself to this grueling education?,” I can find strength in these moments of not knowing whether or not there is more that I could’ve done to help an individual or family through a difficult moment.


Intra And Inter-Rater Reliability And Convergent Validity Of Fit-Hansa In Individuals With Grade П Whiplash Associated Disorder, Michael Pierrynowski, Colleen McPhee, Saurabh Mehta, Joy C. MacDermid, Anita Gross 2017 Marshall University

Intra And Inter-Rater Reliability And Convergent Validity Of Fit-Hansa In Individuals With Grade П Whiplash Associated Disorder, Michael Pierrynowski, Colleen Mcphee, Saurabh Mehta, Joy C. Macdermid, Anita Gross

Saurabh Mehta

BACKGROUND: Whiplash-Associated Disorders (WAD) are common following a motor vehicle accident. The Functional Impairment Test - Hand, and Neck/Shoulder/Arm (FIT-HaNSA) assesses upper extremity physical performance. It has been validated in patients with shoulder pathology but not in those with WAD.

OBJECTIVES: Establish the Intra and inter-rater reliability and the known-group and construct validity of the FIT-HaNSA in patients with Grade II WAD (WAD2).

METHODS: Twenty-five patients with WAD2 and 41 healthy controls were recruited. Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS), Neck Disability Index (NDI), Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH), cervical range of motion (CROM), and FIT-HaNSA were ...


The Value In Verifying Medical Folklore, Dennis J. Baumgardner 2017 Aurora University of Wisconsin Medical Group, Aurora Health Care

The Value In Verifying Medical Folklore, Dennis J. Baumgardner

Journal of Patient-Centered Research and Reviews

Citing a related article published within this issue of the Journal of Patient-Centered Research and Reviews, the author opines on why traditional ideas regarding human health can persist over decades, and even centuries, despite a lack of scientifically accumulated evidence. It is important to keep in mind that some commonly accepted truths are supported by little to no factual data, and that occasionally patients may benefit from clarification on what is (or, often, is not) actually known about longstanding “rules of thumb” (eg, certain home remedies, disease-prevention measures or behavioral concerns). On the flip side, traditions that are shown to ...


Maternal Intuition Of Fetal Gender, Michael McFadzen, David P. Dielentheis, Ronda Kasten, Maharaj Singh, Joe Grundle 2017 Obstetrics/Gynecology, Aurora Sheboygan Clinic, Aurora Health Care

Maternal Intuition Of Fetal Gender, Michael Mcfadzen, David P. Dielentheis, Ronda Kasten, Maharaj Singh, Joe Grundle

Journal of Patient-Centered Research and Reviews

Purpose: Fetal gender speculation is a preoccupation of many expecting parents, and pregnant women commonly profess to intuitively know the gender of their unborn babies. This study objectively compared pregnant mothers’ perceptions of fetal gender to sonographically proven gender determinations. Also, success rates from previously published studies, noninvasive prenatal testing and a myriad of gender determination methods were observed and reported for context.

Methods: All pregnant women presenting for second-trimester screening ultrasound (at 17–23 weeks gestation) in the obstetrics department of a single health center were asked to participate. A medical sonographer described the ultrasound examination, obtained appropriate consent ...

Forgiveness: How It Manifests In Our Health, Well-Being, And Longevity, Kathi Norman 2017 University of Pennsylvania

Forgiveness: How It Manifests In Our Health, Well-Being, And Longevity, Kathi Norman

Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Capstone Projects

Forgiveness is a character strength and process that, when practiced, is associated with improved psychological well-being, physical health outcomes, and longevity. Forgiveness can serve as a protective factor that buffers against poor health and psychological consequences. Common misconceptions about forgiveness can serve as barriers to the desire to cultivate this protective strength, as forgiveness is often conflated with permissiveness, and perceived as permission for a transgressor to engage in hurtful conduct. The benefits of forgiveness, however, are most significant for the individual who has been transgressed, rather than the transgressor. Failing to forgive, or unforgiveness, is the practice of engaging ...


Strength-Based Physiological Profiles Of Ncaa Division I Women’S Basketball And Gymnastics Athletes: Implications For Injury Risk Assessment, Curtis Cazier 2017 Utah State University

Strength-Based Physiological Profiles Of Ncaa Division I Women’S Basketball And Gymnastics Athletes: Implications For Injury Risk Assessment, Curtis Cazier

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

The purpose of this study was to provide a comprehensive strength-based physiological profile of women’s collegiate basketball and gymnastic athletes; and to make sport-specific comparisons for various isokinetic and maximal and rapid isometric strength characteristics of the knee flexor and extensor muscles. A focus on antagonist muscle balance (hamstrings to quadriceps ratios, H:Q) will help elucidate particular vulnerabilities in these at-risk female athletes. Fourteen Division I collegiate level women’s basketball and 13 women’s gymnastics athletes performed isokinetic and isometric strength testing of the knee extensors and flexors. Outcome measures included absolute and body mass normalized (relative ...

Increasing Sustainability In Co-Design Projects: A Qualitative Evaluation Of A Co-Design Programme In New Zealand, Lynne Margaret Maher Dr., Brooke Hayward, Patricia Hayward, Chris Walsh Dr

Patient Experience Journal

The Health Quality & Safety Commission New Zealand commissioned Ko Awatea, an innovation and improvement centre, to deliver a co-design programme to nine teams of healthcare providers. The co-design programme was part of Partners in Care, a broader programme developed in 2012 to support and enable patient engagement and participation across the health and disability sector. Teams received training, guidance and mentorship in Experience Based Design (EBD) methodology.1 We evaluated the co-design programme to explore barriers and facilitators to the sustainability of the co-design projects and the EBD approach. The evaluation involved seventeen semi-structured interviews with programme participants, including seven ...

Ethical Concerns For Assisted Reproductive Technologies, Olga Najera 2017 Abilene Christian University

Ethical Concerns For Assisted Reproductive Technologies, Olga Najera

Dialogue & Nexus

The development of assisted reproductive technologies has provided new options for infertile couples in their pursuit of parenthood. As a result of the successful implementation of in vitro fertilization (IVF), gestational surrogacy is now an alternative. Other technology, such as genetic enhancement, could potentially become available for human beings soon; however, numerous ethical concerns have been raised by the fact that it requires germline engineering. The concerns brought about by these new reproductive technologies will be addressed in light of the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and of the following ethical theories: Kantian, evolutionary, utilitarian, and virtue ethics.

The Use And Efficacy Of Comics In Healthcare: A Scoping Review In Graphic Medicine, Matthew N. Noe, Suzana Makowski, Len L. Levin, Kelly Lund 2017 University of Massachusetts Medical School

The Use And Efficacy Of Comics In Healthcare: A Scoping Review In Graphic Medicine, Matthew N. Noe, Suzana Makowski, Len L. Levin, Kelly Lund

National Network of Libraries of Medicine New England Region (NN/LM NER) Repository

Background: Graphic medicine is defined as the “interaction between the medium of comics and the discourse of healthcare”. We seek to understand the ways in which comics are currently being employed in healthcare settings and what effects, if any, these practices have on physician, patient, and their experiences and health outcomes.

Methods: Our scoping review is following the six-stage methodology laid out by Arksey and O’Malley (2005) in order to map the field – an appropriate methodology, as graphic medicine is a relatively new field that thus far lacks clear boundaries. We built, tested, and conducted searches in six databases ...
