The Future Of Nursing Leadership: Incorporating E-Learned Artificial Intelligence (Ai) Pathways With A Precautionary Focus On Patient-Centered-Care, Jamie Anne Marcus Dr., Bonnette Villalba Webb Jun 2024

The Future Of Nursing Leadership: Incorporating E-Learned Artificial Intelligence (Ai) Pathways With A Precautionary Focus On Patient-Centered-Care, Jamie Anne Marcus Dr., Bonnette Villalba Webb

FDLA Journal

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a data-driven mathematical process that incorporates machine-based-logic, usually in the form of algorithms. Education, training, and competencies are now conducted through virtual reality, robotics, simulation, and technology learning-based-platforms by healthcare organizations. This represents a significant change in the future of nursing practice. The adaptability of technology-based-learning platforms can impact the quality and efficiency of learning for some of the workforce population. Nurses' perception of technology and AI-driven nursing practice may vary based on generational orientation and can be a potential barrier to learning, practicing, and adaptability of this framework. The forging of well-trained resilient nurse leaders …


Exploring Cultural, Health, And Technology Intersections: A Focus On Migrant Experiences, Merna Mina, Sahij Gill Jun 2024

Exploring Cultural, Health, And Technology Intersections: A Focus On Migrant Experiences, Merna Mina, Sahij Gill

Bridges: An Undergraduate Journal of Contemporary Connections

Despite the plethora of theories and frameworks addressing culture, health, and technology adoption, there remains a notable absence of a unifying theory that comprehensively encompasses all three aspects, particularly concerning newcomers. The Health Belief Model, for example, underscores individual perceptions and attitudes toward health yet fails to consider the intricate interplay between cultural factors and technology adoption among immigrant populations. The Healthy Immigrant Effect, which posits that immigrants often exhibit better health outcomes than native-born individuals, does not mention the role of technology on health outcomes. Acculturation theories, while shedding light on the adaptation process, often fall short of explaining …

Multi-Class Emotion Classification With Xgboost Model Using Wearable Eeg Headband Data, James Khamthung, Nibhrat Lohia, Seement Srivastava May 2024

Multi-Class Emotion Classification With Xgboost Model Using Wearable Eeg Headband Data, James Khamthung, Nibhrat Lohia, Seement Srivastava

SMU Data Science Review

Electroencephalography (EEG) or brainwave signals serve as a valuable source for discerning human activities, thoughts, and emotions. This study explores the efficacy of EXtreme Gradient Boosting (XGBoost) models in sentiment classification using EEG signals, specifically those captured by the MUSE EEG headband. The MUSE device, equipped with four EEG electrodes (TP9, AF7, AF8, TP10), offers a cost-effective alternative to traditional EEG setups, which often utilize over 60 channels in laboratory-grade settings. Leveraging a dataset from previous MUSE research (Bird, J. et al., 2019), emotional states (positive, neutral, and negative) were observed in a male and a female participant, each for …

Dnp Final Report: Effects Of Open-Access Scheduling On Patient No-Show Rates In An Outpatient Clinic, Maria Aileen A. Wilkinson Msn, Mba, Rn May 2024

Dnp Final Report: Effects Of Open-Access Scheduling On Patient No-Show Rates In An Outpatient Clinic, Maria Aileen A. Wilkinson Msn, Mba, Rn

DNP Final Reports

No-show rates in a South Texas outpatient clinic have been as high as 16% to 20% which increases wait times to be seen in the clinic and decreases patient access to outpatient care. This no-show rate data has continued despite multiple interventions that have been implemented in an academic health science center. Physical, socio-economic, geographic, and health/lifestyle factors affecting no show or missed appointments are crucial to determining the most appropriate interventions to alleviate this issue. No-show rates are important metrics to improve because it directly affects the organization's revenue, access to care, and appointment wait times. Research evidence regarding …

Revista de la Facultad de Medicina Humana

Despite the numerous efforts of the international community to eradicate all forms of violence against women, this problem is far from being resolved. According to the UN, one in three women has suffered physical or sexual violence from an intimate partner, sexual violence outside the couple, or both at least once in their life. Addressing this problem as a social health need of population groups allows an approach to gender violence as a collective health problem. At the level of physical violence, strangulation/suffocation has been identified as one of the most lethal forms of domestic violence and sexual assault. Victims …

Forensic Genetics And Genomics In Peru: Current Situation And Future Challenges, Carlos David Neyra Rivera

Revista de la Facultad de Medicina Humana

Forensic Genetics is defined as a field of knowledge that uses both genetic concepts and molecular tools. This is used to resolve cases in which it is desired to identify the identity of people allegedly involved in a criminal act, kinship ties, identification of missing persons, etc. Currently, Forensic Genetics mainly uses molecular markers of the type STRs (short tandem repeats), SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) and insertion/deletion INDELs)(1). In order to use these markers, it generally begins with DNA extraction, a multiplex polymerase chain reaction, capillary electrophoresis and analysis with specialized software to obtain a genetic profile that is unique …
