Health sciences students’ perception of the educational environment of KLE University, India as measured with the Dundee Ready Educational Environment Measure (DREEM)

This study aimed to evaluate the educational environment of the health sciences programs of KLE University, Belgaum, Karnataka, India, to identify their strengths and weaknesses, and to suggest strategies to improve the educational envi- ronment to be on par with global standards. A cross-sectional study was conducted using the Dundee Ready Education- al Environment Measure (DREEM) questionnaire, illed out by 914 of the 1,004 students (91.0%) who were majoring in medicine, dentistry, nursing, physiotherapy, and public health. The data were analysed according to the DREEM guide- lines. Responses were received from 914 students, of whom 34.03% were men and 65.9% were women. The majority (67.1%) of students were 20-24 years of age. The mean overall DREEM score was 120.21± 22.4 (maximum, 200) and ap- proached the normal distribution (Lilliefors test, P < 0.01). The DREEM scores of each group of students were as follows: dental, 125.0; medical, 122.4; public health, 121.0; physiotherapy, 117.0; and nursing, 116.3. Male students had more positive perceptions than female students (P < 0.05), and postgraduate students had more positive perceptions than un- dergraduate students (P < 0.05). The overall DREEM score (120.21) indicates that the educational environment was found to be more positive than negative.

Medical laboratory science and nursing students’ perception of academic learning environment in a Philippine university using Dundee Ready Educational Environment Measure (DREEM)

Medical laboratory science and nursing students’ perception of academic learning environment in a Philippine university using Dundee Ready Educational Environment Measure (DREEM)

Purpose: This study aimed to compare the perception of the academic learning environment between medical laborato- ry science students and nursing students at Saint Louis University, Baguio City, Philippines. Methods: A cross-sectional survey research design was used to measure the perceptions of the participants. A total of 341 students from the Depart- ment of Medical Laboratory Science, School of Natural Sciences, and the School of Nursing answered the Dundee Ready Education Environment Measure (DREEM) instrument from April to May 2016. Responses were compared according to course of study, gender, and year level. Results: The total mean DREEM scores of the medical laboratory science students and nursing students did not difer signiicantly when grouped according to course of study, gender, or year level. Medi- cal laboratory science students had signiicantly lower mean scores in the sub-domains ‘perception of learning’ and ‘per- ception of teaching.’ Male medical laboratory science students had signiicantly lower mean scores in the sub-domain ‘perception of learning’ among second year students. Medical laboratory science students had signiicantly lower mean scores in the sub-domain ‘perception of learning.’ Nursing students identiied 7 problem areas, most of which were relat- ed to their instructors. Conclusion: Medical laboratory science and nursing students viewed their academic learning envi- ronment as ‘more positive than negative.’ However, the relationship of the nursing instructors to their students needs im- provement.

Interventions of health education in mothers of children with cerebral palsy

Interventions of health education in mothers of children with cerebral palsy

It is important to emphasize the sharing of intimacy during the interviews and during their participation in the interventions for mothers often provoked the feeling of invasion, fear of not provoking empathy, being judged or considered incompetent in the performance of her role as mother; making it clear that aspects permeate the whole situation; and the psychological and emotional aspect seems to be the crucial point to be observed, influencing in a significant way the adherence of these mothers of children with cerebral palsy to the parental interventions, and the way they see the therapeutic orientations received. Therefore, it is considered a limitation for this study the reduced time for the execution of the parental interventions.

To understand Virgínia’s role in scientific dissemination, it is important to note that this field, despite its real fragility over time, has at least two centuries of history. In the 1960s, under the influx of transformations in science educa- tion in the United States, a renewal education- al movement was initiated in Brazil, based on the importance of experimentation for science teaching. This movement led to the emergence of science centers scattered throughout the country which, although more directly linked to formal education, contributed to actions of populariz- ing science. From the 1980s, new outreach dis- semination activities began to emerge in the media, including the creation of science sections in large circulation newspapers, science-oriented TV shows and specialized magazines in the area. Since then, following international trends, doz- ens of science centers have been created all over the country since the early 1980s 18 .

Information Society in Croatia Landscpes of Knowledge for Development

According to EuroEducationNet (available on http://www.euroeducation.net) the Croatian higher education system comprises six universities, with some eighty faculties, art academies and schools of professional higher education; five polytechnics; six independent schools of professional higher education and nine private accredited schools of professional higher education. The mission of universities is scientific, artistic and developmental research, especially the implementation of scientific research programs that are of strategic interest to Croatia; artistic endeavor and professional work, as well as the undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate education based on them. The mission of polytechnics and schools of professional higher education is professional higher education and artistic and professional activities in accordance with the needs of their local community. Schools of professional higher education are mostly teacher academies or institutions established in certain fields where the need or resources to establish a full polytechnic were lacking. The higher education system in the Republic of Croatia is currently undergoing a comprehensive reform in order to be part of the European Higher Education standards with the implementation of the Bologna Declaration, signed by Croatia in 2001.

Operating characteristics of turbine mixers based on the analysis of power demand of the mixer’s drive

Operating characteristics of turbine mixers based on the analysis of power demand of the mixer’s drive

Rebonding of sand mix is a common practice in foundry engineering. The sand mix contains used sand whose grains are already coated with the rebonding material. Rebonding of the used sand [3,4] involves disintegration of grain agglomerates and uniform distribution of the rebodning agent in the entire volume of the sand mix batch, coating of sand grains with the rebonding agent and activation of thus formed coating. Turbine (rotor) mixers are now in widespread use as they feature high efficiency and short mixing cycles.

The modification process of AlSi21CuNi silumin and its effect on change of mechanical properties of the alloy

The modification process of AlSi21CuNi silumin and its effect on change of mechanical properties of the alloy

Phosphorus, which can be introduced to metal bath in free form, as a master alloy or a salt, belong to well-known modifiers of hypereutectic silumins. It has been confirmed [2] that in such case the aluminum phosphide, AlP, becomes the nucleus of the crystallization. In the studies [11-12] is presented a new view on interaction of phosphorus in process of modification of hypereutectic silumins, which is an effect of local overcooling in micro-areas caused by evaporation and expansion of bubbles of phosphorus vapours. Indispensable quantity of phosphorus in the alloy was determined as interval of 0,01 ÷ 0,05 % [1-3].

A Method To Find The Area Of Sector Without The Usage Of Angle Made By The Chord

As we know that to find the area of sector the angle made by the chord (that is chord which divides the circle) is required. But in the below method we find the ratio of the segments of the circle. Thus by relating the area of segment to the area of sector the area of sector could be found. The ratio of area of segments is related to tangents that are drawn through diameter on either side.

CONTINUOUS CREATION IN THE PROBABILISTIC WORLD OF THE THEOLOGY OF CHANCE

CONTINUOUS CREATION IN THE PROBABILISTIC WORLD OF THE THEOLOGY OF CHANCE

Let us suppose that such a scenario is true. We must at the very begin- ning note that God, when He brings about the existence of x and its essential parts, determines the range and kind of its possible accidental properties as well as its substantial changes. For example, a table cannot sing and a hu- man cannot ly (like a bird can). Thus if x belongs to a kind K (x is K), then no other contingent being (substance) can bring it about that x is F, if F is incompatible with K. But if it is true for any substance x that x is F or x is not F, meaning that x is determinate in every respect and F is not essential for x, then it must be the case that if God brought about the existence of x, then he brought about that x is F or (non-F). If x has been created by God, then x must be determinate in every respect, since x is a substance. Therefore x is F or x is non-F. It is also impossible that any non-essential properties of x could be (directly and totally) caused by other created substances, because every other substance distinct from x has to have all its own properties, in- cluding all its accidental properties. It must be so because every substance to be a substance must have all its properties both essential and accidental. Thus it is not possible that any substance created by God (ex nihilo) could bring about the existence of any accidental properties of any other substan- ce because all its properties (parts or constituents) are determined directly (intimately) and totally by God.

Psychological factors of the readiness of teachers to ensure social security in the educational environment.

Psychological factors of the readiness of teachers to ensure social security in the educational environment.

he sixth factor is the formation of communicative skills that contribute to the implementation of secure interactions among individuals. At the microlevel, potential threats to social safety occur in direct communication with other people. Such threats include abuse, manipulation, and the formation of unstable social ties. he presence of such threats makes communication and related attitudes toward other people one of the leading factors. here is no doubt that what teachers say and how they say it have an impact not only on the successful assimilation of knowl- edge but also on health, especially mental health. Not only the teacher’s speech but also communication among students themselves has an impact on students; their speech culture can negatively afect their health, especially their mental health. In the youth environment the use of foul words and profanity has been increasing dramatically. People who frequently use profanity already have defects in mental health; such speech degrades a person. In this regard, in an educational institution special attention should be directed to lamprophony, as well as to improving the speech culture of students.

Popular education in health with fishermen: an experience outside the nurse´s “comfort zone”

Objective: To reflect about a participatory educational activity developed with a group of artisanal fishermen, of a community in the city of São Gonçalo, Rio de Janeiro. Such action was contextualized by previous findings related to socio-demographic and clinical and lcoal environmental pollution issues. Method: Four fishermen with fishing time between 2 and 20 years participated in the activity. The activity took place in the morning in July, after insertion of the researcher in the scenario in the previous six months. Results: The main difficulties encountered by the fishermen in fishing activity, questions about health problems such as hypertension and diabetes mellitus, presence of wounds and treatment modalities were researched using participatory strategy associated with teaching resources. Conclusion: The experience helped identify singularities and challenges faced by the group. At the end, a banner was elaborated containing educational guidelines constructed with the fishermen. Descriptors: Health education, Groups, Nursing.

he data were processed through the SPSS program (version 19.0), and double typed for data control and validation. Statistical analyses were carried out in the statistical programming environment R (version 3.0.1). To evaluate the efect of the intervention over time in each of the clinical variables, the Variance Analysis with repeated measures was used. To determine the need for more complex models of variance analysis, such as those that consider the efect of clusters, intra-class correlation coeicient values, considering the initial and inal data of the clinical indicators, were evaluated and values smaller than 0.05 were considered low. he normality assumption of the data was veriied by means of the Shapiro-Wilk test. In case of violation of the data variances homogeneity assumption in their original measurement scale, the Box-Cox transformation was used to correct the problem. Multiple comparisons were made by means of conidence intervals with the Bonferroni correction. To compare proportions, we used chi-square tests with Yates correction for independent samples and McNemar for dependent samples. To compare two means, the t-Student-Welch test was used, if the samples were independent, and the t-Student test was paired for dependent samples. In all analyses, a signiicance level of 5% was used.

side), depending on the location of a sculpture in the overall composition of certain structures, on the skills of masters belonging to different art schools. In rare cases, the low relief (the sculpture in Surkh Kotal) [21], traditional for ancient Iran and less characteristic for the art of Kushan, was used. Thus, the "Bactrian sculpture was characterized by monumentality and st rict frontal position‖ [22, 90p]. But round, often three- quarter, always wall sculpture, had been rather an exception in the buildings of Greco-Bactrian period and Buddhist structures. According to references, the statue of Anahit [23] was located in the temple of Bactria before the arrival of the Greeks, and with the arrival of the Greek, the Hellenistic traditions began to play a significant role in the artistic culture of Central Asia [24]. In the Hellenistic period the sculpture was done in full volume and size, often exceeding the human scale (in Square Hall of Nisa, in the temple of Ai-Khanum in Surkh Kotal). For example, the sculpture of Ai-Khanum was two and a half times larger than the life size, this required from the masters an "excellent knowledge of modeling techniques and strengthening the clay mass" [25, 71p]. By the scale the sculptors emphasized the position of painted person in the hierarchy. Hellenistic traditions of erecting the statues of kings "were transformed over time into the objects of worship and were placed in sanctuaries‖ [26, 15p]. In Bactria there existed and were for a long time exercised the temples of Hellenic Gods (Temple of Dioscurus in Dilberdjin), "visited by both local descendants of Greek colonists and the Hellenized part of local population" [27, 82p]. In all probability, Greek deities were placed there (for example, in the area of
