The purpose of these audits is to promote the appropriate prescribing of tramadol in NHS Wales. The audits form part of an educational resource pack, which also includes WeMeReC bulletins, an educational slide set, a patient information leaflet and a shared decision-making toolkit. These educational resourcematerials are intended to raise awareness amongst prescribers and patients of the potential harms associated with the misuse and diversion of tramadol, and to provide healthcare professionals with information and training to aid in the appropriate prescribing of tramadol as part of an overall pain management strategy. The audit tools are to be used by prescribers and other healthcare professionals as a template to review the prescribing of tramadol within the often complex context of pain management.
4. In cases where interchanging of tissue samples is suspected, the consequences are always followed by a dramatic surprise of a patient. Due to false negative finding results a patient leaves out necessary therapy; whereas false positive findings may subject him to suffer unnecessary operations and chemotherapies. A treating gynecologist along with a pathologist was suspected of incorrect diagnoses and interchanging of tissue samples in breast cancer related cases. To clarify the reproaches the attorney ’ s bureau confiscated histological slides, paraffin blocks and formalin fixed tissues from a privately owned pathological laboratory. Accordingly the confiscated materials were subjected to DNA examinations and compared to reference material of the patients for the proof of interchanging tissue samples. For diagnoses appearing to be surprising for a certain age or for preexisting diseases it becomes important to take into account the possibility of interchanging of tissue samples where its consequences are always dramatic for the patient as said earlier (Banaschak et al. 2000).
After all, where else in the world is water so valued and respected? It’s a precious resource that defines how we live in Utah. Because we’re not surrounded by oceans and immense water habitats, we have fewer opportunities to experience, understand and appreciate the water environments that cover more than 70 percent of our planet. The Living Planet Aquarium brings animals to people who might not have the chance to see them or their water-based ecosystems in a natural setting.
This paper reports on a two-step study of students’ perspectives with respect to the use of BlogTalkRadio (BTR) in online management classes. First, a survey was conducted in three online sections of a business policy course, and 70 of 103 students participated. Second, participants were contacted to provide follow-up comments on the practical use of BTR in online management classes, and 9 of 70 participants provided positive comments. BTR is the world’s largest social radio network and podcasts producer. It is a web-based platform for hosting live call-in talk shows which are recorded as podcasts. This study examined whether an instructor hosting executive interviews on BTR with student participation would result in generation of good resourcematerials for online management classes; enhancement of student-student, student-instructor, and student- content interaction; and student understanding of the application of management concepts in business settings. The results affirmed the research focus, and 80% of the survey participants would recommend the use of BTR in online classes. The planned BTR interview project would satisfy Chickering and Gamson’s (1987) Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education. It would promote elements of active learning such as student engagement, connectivity, critical thinking, and knowledge creation. Key words: BlogTalkRadio; collaborative learning; interaction; active learning; student engagement; knowledge creation
In our previous work , we have proposed an efficient fault tolerant scheduling algorithm (FTMM) which is based on data transfer time and failure rate. System performance is also achieved by reducing the idle time of the resources and distributing the unmapped tasks equally among the available resources. A scheduling strategy that considers user deadline and communication time for data intensive tasks with reduced makespan, high hit rate and reduced communication overhead is introduced in . This strategy does not consider the occurrence of resource failure.
According to GBI (2011) “A green building focuses on increasing the efficiency of resource use energy, water, and materials while reducing building impact on human health and the environment during the building’s lifecycle, through better sitting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal. Green buildings should be designed and operated to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on its surroundings”. Buildings with green technology in Malaysia are considered new. But the efforts to develop a comprehensive green technology for buildings including residential are underway to ensure a better quality, comfortable and affordable to a wide range of social groups. The government of Malaysia is currently aware that green technology can be a practical, useful and an alternative approach for residential buildings.
The Commission has already identified fourteen critical raw materials at EU level (see Appendix 1). Critical raw materials are those which display a particularly high risk of supply shortage in the next ten years and which are important for the value chain. The supply risk is linked to the concentration of production in a handful of countries, and the low political- economic stability of some of the suppliers (see Appendix 2). This risk is in many cases compounded by low substitutability and low recycling rates. In many cases, a stable supply is important for climate policy objectives and for technological innovation. For example, rare earths are essential for high performance permanent magnets in wind turbines or electric vehicles but the EU is completely dependent on imports, with China accounting for 97% of world production in 2009. At the same time, no recycling or substitution processes for rare earths are currently commercially viable.
Development of an effective resource depends on creating a resource written at an appropriate educational level . A participatory design model, engaging key stakeholders in the design process, can be used to develop an appropriate resource . Once an appropriate resource has been devel- oped, it was shown by Aremu et. al.  that handouts im- prove recall in otolaryngology-head and neck procedures (62% vs 51%). Knowing this, a participatory design model should be employed to create peri-operative pamphlets for paediatric caregivers of various backgrounds.
The resource described here comprises a suite of e-Assessments together with supporting materials that relate to the statistical activities involved in choosing and carrying out an appropriate one sample test for location (mean or median) on a randomly generated data set. The choice of focusing on one sample location tests is a natural one as it contains activities that are required in the extension to more complex data scenarios. Five e-Assessment modules are available and these may be accessed independently or can be taken sequentially mimicking the flow of a full statistical analysis using the SPSS software package. The goal is to identify and perform the appropriate location test for a particular data set; t-test, Wilcoxon signed-rank test or Binomial (Sign) test. The e-Assessment modules are as follows:
Under this dimension, the sub dimensions such as provision of training kit, provision of training packages, if provided, the mode of supply of such training package, the quality of learning materials / training packages, the language difficulty of such materials, provision of ICT and other equipments during the training etc. were included. The data were collected from teachers (trainees), Trainers and Supervisory Personnel. Separate questionnaires were used for data collection from these three stake holders. The data collected from different sources were cross validated through the source triangulation method. The analysis was done through simple statistical procedure such as percentage calculation. The data collected through the above three questionnaires were analyzed quantitatively by using percentage analysis technique as well as qualitatively with thick description as follows:
Based on internet searches, it was revealed that most extension resources that are specifically tailored to limited resource and underserved audiences are in areas of health and nutrition. Of the forestry materials developed for this audience, most have been primarily workshops (i.e. the Mississippi Underserved Forestry Landowner Program). There are few written forestry materials available to this audience (LLPP 1997 and Winrock 1998). There are many resources already available that provide guidance in producing written materials for a low literacy audience including extension publications. For example, these publications explain that materials should be developed to both meet the educational needs of the audience and be sensitive to the cultural significance of terms and images (National Cancer Institute 2004 and Kurzynske and Stivers 2004). The publications developed for this project are among the first that put these guidelines into practice for forestry materials in the Southeast.
Texts and training materials will be carefully se- quenced in Moodle lessons to facilitate step-by- step learning: students will first be asked to link people and events to centuries, then do multiple choice training tests, followed by open cloze ones. They will learn to link names and places with pho- tographs, pictures or short texts, to link people, places and events with countries. The Moodle ed- ucational platform where the training exercises are exported also allows the addition of audio/video tips to the tests and quizzes, and learning there can be fun. To ensure personalization, a considerable choice of didactic materials and audiovisual aids as well as a choice of languages will be offered. The possibility for self-paced learning in the flex- ible Moodle lesson structure offers individualiza- tion of the learning process.
