Rural Adolescents’ Help Seeking Intentions For Emotional Problems: The Influence Of Perceived Benefits And Stoicism., Coralie Wilson 2010 University of Wollongong

Rural Adolescents’ Help Seeking Intentions For Emotional Problems: The Influence Of Perceived Benefits And Stoicism., Coralie Wilson

Coralie J Wilson

This paper is the second from a larger multi-cite study developed and led by the third author which explores factors that influence adolescents' help-seeking intentions. Specifically, this paper investigates the extent to which perceived benefits of help seeking, stoicism, gender and symptoms of psychological distress are associated with intentions to seek professional help for emotional problems. A cross sectional self-report questionnaire was administered to adolescents recruited from seven high schools in rural towns in the Riverina region of New South Wales. A total of 778 adolescents were recruited. The sample included 373 male and 404 female participants between 13 and ...

Retroperitoneal Pyogranulomatous And Fibrosing Inflammation Secondary To Fungal Infections In Two Dogs, JM Clemans, KL Deitz, EA Riedesel, MJ Yaeger, Alfred Legendre 2010 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Retroperitoneal Pyogranulomatous And Fibrosing Inflammation Secondary To Fungal Infections In Two Dogs, Jm Clemans, Kl Deitz, Ea Riedesel, Mj Yaeger, Alfred Legendre

Alfred M Legendre DVM, MS, DACVIM

Case Descriptions—A 4-year-old spayed female Golden Retriever (dog 1) was examined because of acute edema and erythema in the left hind limb and an inguinal mass, and a 5-year-old female Jack Russell Terrier (dog 2) was examined because of a recurring retro-peritoneal mass.

Clinical Findings—Dog 1 had an edematous, hyperemic left hind limb with a fixed inguinal mass. Monocytic neutrophilic leukocytosis and hypoalbuminemia were detected. Diagnostic imaging revealed abnormal tissue surrounding the larger vessels and ureters and complete occlusion of the left limb veins. Surgery resulted in incomplete removal of the mass. Histologic examination revealed fibrosing pyogranulomatous inflammation ...


Use Of The Culture Care Theory To Discover Nursing Faculty Care Expressions, Patterns, And Practices Related To Teaching Culture Care, Sandra Mixer 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Use Of The Culture Care Theory To Discover Nursing Faculty Care Expressions, Patterns, And Practices Related To Teaching Culture Care, Sandra Mixer

Sandra J Mixer

The purpose of this ethnonursing research study was to discover nursing faculty care practices that support teaching students to provide culturally congruent care within baccalaureate programs in urban and rural universities in the Southeastern United States. Twenty seven Anglo- and African-American faculty participated. Four themes were discovered: faculty care is embedded in religious values, beliefs, and practices; faculty taught culture care without an organizing framework; faculty provided generic and professional care to nursing students; and care is essential for faculty health and well being to teach culture care. Culture care action and decision modes and a new care construct offer ...


Differential Induction Of Reactive Oxygen Species Through Erk1/2 And Nox-1 By Fk228 For Selective Apoptosis Of Oncogenic H-Ras-Expressing Human Urinary Bladder Cancer J82 Cells, Shambhunath Choudhary, Kusum Rathore, H. Wang 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Differential Induction Of Reactive Oxygen Species Through Erk1/2 And Nox-1 By Fk228 For Selective Apoptosis Of Oncogenic H-Ras-Expressing Human Urinary Bladder Cancer J82 Cells, Shambhunath Choudhary, Kusum Rathore, H. Wang

Shambhunath Choudhary DVM, PhD

PURPOSE: This study sought to reveal mechanisms for differential regulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in histone deacetylase inhibitor FK228-induced selective apoptosis of oncogenic H-Ras-expressing human cancer cells.

METHODS: Human urinary bladder cancer J82 and oncogenic H-Ras-expressing J82 cells were used to reveal FK228-induced differential Erk1/2 activation, Nox-1 elevation, ROS production, glutathione (GSH) depletion, caspase activation, and apoptosis. Specific inhibitors were used to suppress Nox-1 activity and ROS production. Mek1/2 inhibitor was used to suppress Erk1/2 activation. Validated-specific siRNAs were used to knock down Nox-1. ROS levels, GSH levels, and caspase-3/7 activities were measured by GSH ...

Creating Equal Opportunities: The Social Accountability Of Medical Education, Trevor Gibbs, Michelle Mclean

Michelle McLean

As new developments in medical education move inexorably forward, medical schools are being encouraged to revisit their curricula to ensure quality graduates and match their outcomes against defined standards. These standards may eventually be transferred into global accreditation standards, which allow ‘safe passage’ of graduates from one country to another [Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) 2010. Requiring medical school accreditation for ECFMG certification—moving accreditation forward. Available from: http://www.ecfmg.org/accreditation/rationale.pdf. Gaining much attention is the important standard of social accountability – ensuring that graduates’ competencies are shaped by the health and social needs of ...

The Role Of Research In Art Therapy Master's Degree Programs, Cecile Brennan 2010 John Carroll University

The Role Of Research In Art Therapy Master's Degree Programs, Cecile Brennan

Cecile Brennan

Art therapy master's degree programs are required to provide instruction in research theory and methodology, in accordance with art therapy and professional counseling education standards. Although the art therapy standards outline broad, general principles regarding the study of research, the professional counseling standards are more comprehensive and focused on educating graduate students to be adept evaluators and consumers of research. This viewpoint discusses the role of research in the master's degree curriculum and whether it is pedagogically appropriate to require graduate students, who are in the early stages of mastering clinical skills, to conduct independent research. Recommendations are ...

Carole R. Myers, PhD, RN Associate Professor

CONTEXT: America's Health Rankings (AHR) is a state-level ranking of health determinants and outcomes produced annually by the United Health Foundation. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine how states-particularly state health departments (SHDs)-respond to the annual AHR report. DESIGN: This study utilized a mixed methods approach involving key informant (KI) interviews in selected SHDs and a survey of the 50 state health officials (SHOs). SETTING: Key informants were interviewed at SHD offices in 9 states. The survey was conducted using an online format. PARTICIPANTS: Key informants included the SHO, senior staff in the SHD, and ...

Statistical Considerations In Determining Hiv Incidence From Changes In Hiv Prevalence, Ron Brookmeyer, Jacob Konikoff 2010 University of California, Los Angeles

Statistical Considerations In Determining Hiv Incidence From Changes In Hiv Prevalence, Ron Brookmeyer, Jacob Konikoff

Ron Brookmeyer

The development of methods for estimating HIV incidence is critical for tracking the epidemic and for designing, targeting and evaluating HIV prevention efforts. One method for estimating incidence is based on changes in HIV prevalence. That method is attracting increased attention because national population-based HIV prevalence surveys, such as Demographic and Health Surveys, are being conducted throughout the world. Here, we consider some statistical issues associated with estimating HIV incidence from two population-based HIV prevalence surveys conducted at two different points in time. We show that the incidence estimator depends on the relative survival rate. We evaluate the sensitivity of ...
