Objective: To verify the relation between leadership styles and personal and professionalprofile of a nurse facing another team member when performing ICU patient care. Methods: Samples were collected on seven nurses and seven practical nurses working as partners. Throughout three months, the nurses were inquired about the leadership style applied when the practical nurse, under their assessment, performed ICU patient care. Results: Persuasion style prevailed among other styles, followed by determining and sharing between leaders and their subordinated team member. Conclusion: In this ICU, nurses stand out due to their persuading situational leadership style where they explain their decisions and provide the opportunity for clarification to the subordinated team. No relation between the nurses’ leadership style and their professional and personal profile was shown.
Data from Análise Advocacia 500 present the main reasons companies end up hiring this or that law firm to handle litigation and typical everyday issues. But, based on the qualitative interviews, we noticed that when it comes to more sophisticated matters, interviewees revealed a reason that is not contemplated in the chart above, that is, the professionalprofile and the lawyer’s reputation. According to those interviewed, beyond the firm’s reputation, the key justification for contracting a certain firm is determined by the presence of a specific lawyer, due to their technical knowledge and expertise on the given subject, with whom a relationship of trust is established. This argument appears to justify hiring both Brazilian and international law firms.
Variables concerning the personal and professionalprofile did not have any statistically significant relationship with the nurses’ leadership styles (p>0.05). Since the leaders were young and had little ICU work experience, it was expected that styles S1 and S2 would prevail in order to assure they would provide the care that was under their responsibility, or E3 and E4 with the aim of obtaining a good interpersonal relationship.

A 12-month cross-sectional study (August 2012 to August 2013) was conducted at the Centers for Teaching and Research (NEPs) at SAMU in 21 state capitals and in cities in the states of Sa˜o Paulo, Parana´, Minas Gerais, Ceara´ and Maranha˜o. This study was approved by the Medical Ethics Committee of the Federal University of Sa˜o Paulo - School of Medicine of the State of Sa˜o Paulo (CEP No. 103.291). The work included elaboration of a social, demographic and professionalprofile and evaluation of the quality of life of the physicians working at the Mobile Emergency Care Service in Brazil. In the first phase, a commission was established to generate a semi-structured questionnaire to determine the profile. This commission was composed of the principal investigator, a physician who is a coordinator at SAMU, an interventionist physician and a regulatory physician with ten years of experience within the service and a graduate and post-graduate medical professor. The elaboration of the questionnaire, which contained 57 questions, was completed by the committee in June 2012. In the second phase, a pre-test was administered to SAMU’s
■ ABSTRACT: In the process of building teachers´ professional identity, social and professional practices play an important role. Those practices are, however, affected by the context in which they are immersed. For the aim of this paper, we locate our research on the cross-border region Brazil-Peru-Bolivia to analyse teachers´ professionalprofile. The purpose of our analysis is to identify elements of plurilingual competence in their professionalprofile. It will allow us to reflect on the potentialities offered by a cross-border context in the process of building a professional identity of teachers from the perspective of plurilingual education. We locate our research in the field of Didactic of Language and Literature to address key concepts related to plurilingual education. We have identified that teachers are aware of the potentiality of the context and they develop pedagogical practices that contribute to the development of plurilingual competence.
The model of managing people in organizations changed during the last two decades of the twen- tieth century, when concepts were reformulated, and tools were created to meet the needs of the globalized world. Merely seeking the right per- son for the right position, with little inquisitive behavior, is no longer sufficient for the current scenario. This scenario is modeled on a man- agement system focused on organizational and individual competencies, in order to obtain the aggregation of values to the business. Thus, seek- ing a new autonomous, flexible and entrepre- neurial professionalprofile, generates the need to demonstrate pertinent competencies in every professional field and in accordance with the in- tended client.
It presents study on information mediation in Brazilian and French university libraries. It assumes that university libraries have outstanding social importance in the dissemination of information not only for the academic community, but for society as a whole, as they operate with the promotion of production, circulation and use of scientific information. University libraries, whether located in Brazil or other countries like France, have worked to contribute to the development of society, and in that sense, information professionals, information mediators, are fundamental to ensure continuous learning to users in order to achieve the development of information skills and information literacy. The study has as main objective to investigate the mediation of information in university libraries and the role of information professionals in Brazil and France in the practice of mediation. The specific objectives are: to understand the training for mediation and its practice in the construction of the information professionalprofile for the twenty-first century; identify the origins of Information Science, placing the Brazilian and French realities, recognizing university libraries and their evolution as information mediation spaces in Brazil and France; relate the perception of Brazilian and French professionals of information, librarians, about mediation. Area authors were adopted for the theoretical foundation of the thesis, such as Aldo Barreto (2002), Henriette Ferreira Gomes (2014), Katia de Carvalho (2002) and Oswaldo Francisco de Almeida Júnior (2009), and French authors as Jean Meyriat (1981; 1983) and Viviane Couzinet (2002; 2008). This is a phenomenological study, in a descriptive and qualitative approach level, where data collection took place in two stages, the first in the city of Toulouse, France, where semi-structured interviews were carried out with five active information science professionals in university libraries or documentation centers, and the second with the information professionals of Brazilian university libraries, for which it was applied 63 electronic questionnaires in the Google Docs platform. Data analysis was made from the technique of Bardin Content Analysis. It was observed that the mediation practices in both countries do not differ, even considering the different employment statuses, and there is a need to rethink training for mediation based on disciplinary axes, which are able to ensure training to strengthen the mediation actions in university libraries.
Objective: To describe the profile of nurses engaged in teaching a course in hospital administration during the 1970. Methods: This was a historical documentary consisting of primary and secondary sources produced between 1975 and 2009. The content contained in these sources was analyzed against the nursing work process, and studied in light of the theory of bureaucracy. Results: We described the professionalprofile of four nurses: the first faculty director of The School of Nursing, University of Sao Paulo; the second was an American professor in a master of science course at Incarnate Word College, Texas; the third was the first president of the Regional Nursing Council of São Paulo; and the fourth was Director of Nursing Service of the Heart Institute of the Hospital de Clinicas, Faculty of Medicine, University of Sao Paulo. Conclusion: We found that these nurses held positions of esteem and status in their careers and that this prestige, possibly, has added value to the courses discussed.
To minimize this situation of limited or absent critical and reflective posture, nurses must experience the attributes of politi- cal competence while they’re still in the process of professional training in undergraduate courses in nursing, through vocational guidance, participation of student movements, courses or events and disciplines aiming at constant improvement, consolidation of knowledge and enhancement of their politicality. Thus, it is necessary that this competence is addressed and worked inten- sively as to transform the trajectory of nursing. For this, it is im- perative to reiterate that nurses are active and decisive figures in health spaces, have their own autonomy, are opinion makers, as well as representative in the middle of those that make up the health system and civil society.
The research question that is addressed in this article is the following: what do the executives from small retailing firms learn in their work environment? The theoretical framework of the study is based on texts from the field of learning. This is a qualitative investigation. Ten interviews with clothing retail executives were carried out. Later, these interviews were transcribed and analyzed. In the data analysis stage, two categories were established in response to the research question. Regarding the first, respondents perceived difficulties (problems) in their work environments and obtained specific information and knowledge in order to deal with these situations. So as to overcome different professional difficulties, respondents learned about colors and types of fabric and about certain manufacturing process aspects referring to the clothing sold by their companies. They also declared to have
At the beginning of each interview, besides a brief demographic survey, each participant was asked about their “professional” history and how they had arrived to their current position in their career. Noticeably, similar profiles began to emerge among the participants as their professional background was revealed and cross referenced. For example, both participants at the undergraduate level had expectedly low levels of market work experience. Both participants at the Master’s level had at least ten years of market experience before deciding to further their academic studies. Those pursuing their PhD in the field have markedly less market experience as they had decided to devote themselves to an academic career. The two professors have strikingly different profiles in terms of market work experience, with one appearing to have pursued a primarily academic trajectory while the other has spent much more time in the market before joining academia. On average, most of the participants had very low full-time market work experience, with the exception of M1, M2 and T2. Aside from the undergraduate students, this may indicate that the majority of the participants had decided early on in their careers to pursue strictly academic careers.
The last and current government's programme for the culture sector include the intention to review the legal status of cultural professionals, the definition of a new welfare and pen- sion system and the taxation of work tools, providing safeguards in particular for the inde- pendent nature of artistic work. In this context, Law 4/2008 represents an important step forward establishing the juridical regime for employment contracts of performing arts pro- fessionals, having in attention labour specificities of the sector and focusing permanent work contracts. However, key aspects such as professional qualifications and pension and welfare arrangements were postponed for future regulation. Some of those issues were addressed in a recently approved amendment (Law 28/2011), such as extending the juridi- cal regime to professionals other than artists (technicians and mediators), allowing for si- multaneous contracts with different employers and generally reinforcing the legal obliga- tion of a formal contract or the presumption of contractual obligations when there is an informal professional relationship.
The material obtained through Alceste gener- ated a corpus consisting of 312 initial context units (Unidades de Texto Iniciais, UCIs), resulting in the selection of 318 UCEs, with use of 49% of the UCEs selected (not very conclusive or speciic afirmative answers to questions proposed), obtaining ive dif- ferent and interconnected classes. This corpus was composed by 1,178 distinct words. The words with frequency equal or less than 4, and chi-square less than 3.84 were discarded. The classes 2, 3 and 4 were used, since they speciically depicted the training process in health and professional performance, the object of the study. Data obtained from the classes were subjected to exhaustive and interpretive read- ing, with the aid of thematic content analysis. 11
The professional of information, in the present case the librarian, needs to change his/her paradigm. The society of information has been getting consolidated in Brazil and demands a professional with modern characteristics, capacities, and abilities concerning his/her role in the working market. Socio-economic perspectives in the of this century regarding the librarian are. At least, interesting, since information is the work input of drivers professionals and has contributed in the development of organizations and nations.
It is through communication that the health professional will decipher and understand the meaning of the message that the patient sends, establishing then a care plan consistent with the needs of each individual. Through effective communication the professional helps the patient to view their role in the process of illness, face problems, and find new patterns of behavior. The nurse, more than any other health care professional, must be aware of the proper use of interpersonal communication by interacting directly with the patient. 5
