Addressing population ageing through research in a continent with no social or health policies targeted at the elderly is crucial for identifying gaps in service provision and suggesting solutions to the challenges of the elderly. Understanding the interrelationship between ageing, health, health systems and health care utilization is significant as it provides the base for examining the need for a National Health Policy on Ageing and social policy which takes into account the social needs of the aged. The research detailed how different domains of well-being can impact the life of elderly persons in a rural community in Nigeria and brought about the exposition of the health status of the elderly and factors that influence well-being of the elderly in each domain and overall

Aims and Scope Patients are more empowered to shape their own health care today than ever before. Health information technologies are creating new opportunities for patients and families to participate actively in their care, manage their medical problems and improve communication with their healthcare providers. Moreover, health information technologies are enabling healthcare providers to partner with their patients in a bold effort to optimize quality of care, improve health outcomes and transform the healthcare system on the macro-level.In this book, leading figures discuss the existing needs, challenges and opportunities for improving patient engagement and empowerment through health information technology, mapping out what has been accomplished and what work remains to truly transform the care we deliver and engage patients in their care. Policymakers, healthcare providers and administrators, consultants and industry managers, researchers and students and, not least, patients and their family members should all find value in this book."In the exciting period that lies just ahead, more will be needed than simply connecting patients to clinicians, and clinicians to each other. The health care systems that will be most effective in meeting patients' needs will be those that can actually design their 'human wares' around that purpose. This book provides deep insight into how information technology can and will support that redesign." Thomas H.

Applications in Agent-Based Economics
27,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The aim of this thesis is to explore ways of modelling adaptive agents in Agent-based Computational Economics (ACE) models. A general reinforcement learning framework is developed and implemented in a simulation system. This system is used to implement three models of increasing complexity in two different economic domains. One of these domains form iterative games in which agents meet repeatedly and interact. In an experimental labour market, it is shown how statistical discrimination can be generated simply by the learning algorithm used. The results resemble actual patterns of observed human behaviour in laboratory settings. A second model treats strategic network formation. The main contribution in this area is to show how agent-based modelling helps to analyse non-linearity that is introduced when assumptions of perfect information and full rationality are relaxed. The other domain has a Health Economics background. The aim here is to provide insights of how the approach might be useful in real-world applications. For this, a general model of primary care is developed, and the implications of different consumer behaviour patterns (based on the learning features introduced before) analysed.

Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Trust
117,69 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This timely collection explores trust research from many angles while ably demonstrating the potential of cross-discipline collaboration to deepen our understanding of institutional trust. Citing, among other things, current breakdowns of trust in prominent institutions, the book presents a multilevel model identifying universal aspects of trust as well as domain- and context-specific variations deserving further study. Contributors analyze similarities and differences in trust across public domains from politics and policing to medicine and science, and across languages and nations. Innovative strategies for measuring and assessing trust also shed new light on this essentially human behavior.Highlights of the coverage:Consensus on conceptualizations and definitions of trust: are we there yet?Differentiating between trust and legitimacy in public attitudes towards legal authority.Examining the relationship between interpersonal and institutional trust in political and health care contexts.Trust as a multilevel phenomenon across contexts.Institutional trust across cultures.The "dark side" of institutional trust. With its stimulating array of concepts and applications, Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Trust will attract a varied audience, among them experts in political science, criminal justice, psychology, law, economics, healthcare, sociology, public administration, cross-cultural studies, and business administration.

An apt description of this book appears on the back cover of the book. This descrition was written by Professor Marié-Heleen Coetzee (DTech) and we quote:'Arthur Lessac's passing in 2011 has not only left the Lessac community grieving for a remarkable man, but has brought into sharp focus the need for a continuation of his vision. This book does exactly that. Beyond furthering his vision, this book brings together artist-scholars who extend his vision into multi-disciplinary domains. By weaving together diverging theoretical and contextual terrains, the book stands testimony to the richness and malleability of Lessac Kinesensics.The book organically develops from a layered exposition of the work to applications of the work in the domains of performance and well-being. The central epistemological principle underpinning the book is in viewing the bodymindvoice as a mode of 'knowing' and 'being-in-the-world'; simultaneously being-thinking in and through the work in accordance with the parameters of a specific learning experience or research project. The book offers an array of practice-based methodologies to compliment this principle, contributing not only to scholarship on Lessac Kinsensics, but also to the broader domain of research methodologies in/for the arts. In weaving together theoretical terrains and autobiographical narratives, the book offers a reading experience that is simultaneously deeply (and, at times, movingly) immersive and critically reflexive. In terms of praxis, this book foregrounds the ways in which Lessac Kinesensics fosters self-use, self-teaching and self-care - offering ways in which we can better interrogate our inner worlds, extend our understanding of others and optimize our ways of engaging with the external world.The book is a manifesto of hope: using Lessac Kinesensics to activiate and collectively vision an artistic and pedagogical future greated towards human flourishing.'

Palliative Care and Ethics
36,90 CHF *

Hospice is the premiere end of life program in the United States, but its requirement that patients forgo disease-directed therapies and that they have a prognosis of 6 months or less means that it serves less than half of dying patients and often for very short periods of time. Palliative care offers careful attention to pain and symptom management, added support for patients and families, and assistance with difficult medical decision making alongside any and all desired medical treatments, but it does not include a comprehensive system of care as is provided by hospice. The practice of palliative care and hospice is filled with sometimes overt (requests for hastened death in an environment where such acts are legally prohibited) and other times covert (the delay in palliative care referral because the health care team believes it will undermine disease directed treatment) ethical issues. The contributors to this volume use a series of case presentations within each chapter to illustrate some of the palliative care and hospice challenges with significant ethical dimensions across the three overarching domains: 1) care delivery systems; 2) addressing the many dimensions of suffering; and 3) difficult decisions near the end of life. The contributors are among the most experienced palliative care, hospice and ethics scholars in North America and Western Europe. Each has been given relatively free reign to address what they feel are the most pressing ethical challenges within their domain, so a wide range of positions and vantage points are represented. As a result, the volume provides a very diverse ethical exploration of this relatively young field that can deepen, stretch, and at times confront any simple notion of the challenges facing patients, their families, professional caregivers, and policy makers.

Routledge Interpreting Guides cover the key settings or domains of interpreting and equip trainee interpreters and students of interpreting with the skills needed in each area of the field. Concise, accessible and written by leading authorities, they include examples from existing interpreting practice, activities, further reading suggestions and a glossary of key terms. Drawing on recent peer-reviewed research in interpreting studies and related disciplines, Dialogue Interpreting helps practising interpreters, students and instructors of interpreting to navigate their way through what is fast becoming the very expansive field of dialogue interpreting in more traditional domains, such as legal and medical, and in areas where new needs of language brokerage are only beginning to be identified, such as asylum, education, social care and faith. Innovative in its approach, this guide places emphasis on collaborative dimensions in the wider institutional and organizational setting in each of the domains covered, and on understanding services in the context of local communities. The authors propose solutions to real-life problems based on knowledge of domain-specific practices and protocols, as well as inviting discussion on existing standards of practice for interpreters. Key features include:contextualized examples and case studies reinforced by voices from the field, such as the views of managers of language services and the publications of professional associations. These allow readers to evaluate appropriate responses in relation to their particular geo-national contexts of practice and personal experience activities to support the structured development of research skills, interpreter performance and team-work. These can be used either in-class or as self-guided or collaborative learning and are supplemented by materials on the Translation Studies Portal a glossary of key terms and pointers to resources for further development.Dialogue Interpreting is an essential guide for practising interpreters and for all students of interpreting within advanced undergraduate and postgraduate/graduate programmes in Translation and Interpreting Studies, Modern Languages, Applied Linguistics and Intercultural Communication.
