Meet Me In The Middle: A Scoping Review On Understanding Adolescent Needs In Climate Communication, Gwendolyn Monica Hoff Anderson

Master's Projects and Capstones

The greatest effects of climate change are likely to be felt by youth. Young people are disproportionately affected by climate change due to their critical developmental stage and lack of power, and they experience both higher severity and prevalence of mental health issues related to climate change. Strong emotions have long been recognized as potential catalysts for action, or they may lead to paralyzing feelings of being overwhelmed. Climate communication is a critical tool to spark climate concern and encourage action. Activism, in turn, may help youth manage their anxiety about climate change. This scoping review examines emerging evidence on …

Could Hypertension In Radiographers Associated With Low Ionizing Radiation Exposure? An Evidence-Based Case Report, Rita I. Wijaya, Levina C Khoe, Muchtaruddin Mansyur 2023 Occupational Medicine Specialist Study Program, Faculty of Medicine Universitas Indonesia, Jakarta.

Could Hypertension In Radiographers Associated With Low Ionizing Radiation Exposure? An Evidence-Based Case Report, Rita I. Wijaya, Levina C Khoe, Muchtaruddin Mansyur

Occupational and Environmental Medicine Journal of Indonesia

Low-dose ionizing radiation exposure (<0.5 Gy) may give rise to circulation disorders. Nevertheless, it is not yet known whether low-dose ionizing radiation exposure can cause hypertension. A 27-year-old male patient, who is a radiographer, consulted regarding the result of his periodic check-up with the result of hypertension. He also said that his electrocardiogram (ECG) examination in the previous year's periodic check-up suggested a poor result, but he couldn't remember what the cardiologist told him. Could hypertension in radiographers be associated with ionizing radiation exposure at work? The literature was searched via PubMed, Scopus, and Cochrane. One relevant article was found that met the inclusion criteria. A cohort study by Preetha R, et al (2015) showed no relationship between the risk of hypertension with fluoroscopically guided interventional procedures (FGIP) exposure. The selected article is quite valid but not in importance. Therefore, it did not apply to the case patient. Since research about this matter is still rare, there was only one suitable article found, so the causal relationship still cannot be proven. Further research is recommended using better exposure and outcome measures.

Templated Crisis Communication For People With Disabilities, Access And Functional Needs, Michael Prasad 2023 Barton Dunant, New Jersey

Templated Crisis Communication For People With Disabilities, Access And Functional Needs, Michael Prasad

Journal of International Crisis and Risk Communication Research

Despite the Americans with Disabilities Act being more than 30 years old, many government institutions fail to fully support their constituents, and provide understandable and actionable crisis communications before, during, and after emergencies and disasters. When residents do not effectively receive, understand, and act on crisis communications in a timely manner, life safety issues can occur. People may choose not to evacuate when necessary or lack the information for properly sheltering-in-place. These and other bad decisions can be deadly. Crisis communications, as a subset of risk communications, should be aligned with all the disaster phase cycles—the before, during, and after …
