The purpose of this article is to analyze the resilience of the nursing staff in providing care for children and adolescents with chronic diseases, including coping with their deaths. The participants of this qualitative research were nursing professionals working in the pediatric ward of a hospital in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The data collection was obtained by applying the resilience scale, by returning the scales in groups, and by semi-structured interviews. The relationship between professional resilience and coping with the process of children and adolescent’s deaths stood out in the analysis based on data obtained from group and individual interviews. The care given to children and adolescents with life-limiting illnesses triggers resilience-related answers concerning alternatives that oscillate between individual reactions (religious and psychological support), and the search for an incipient collective support based on personal relationships. This study points out that this subject must be strategically handled to train this professional, who must 1 be able to rely on support from the collective environment, presumed within the professional health care training and in the management of humanization at the hospital. © 2014, Associacao Brasileira de Pos - Graduacao em Saude Coletiva.

Teaching Institutions are up against challenges of an advanced technology of learning with the objective of improving the efficiency of the teaching-learning process. Building video lessons for learning algorithms. Using the MLE for evaluating the content of the video lessons as well as the use of SMS and MMS technology for interaction between teacher-student and student-student. Use Bluetooth technology to the inclusion of content on mobile devices for students.The learning which is carried out with the use of mobile devices makes it possible for users to learn at anytime and anywhere.

The scope of this article is to analyze papers published between 2003 and 2011 that focus on discussions regarding chronic conditions or chronic diseases in children and adolescents. It combines a methodological review of the literature and thematic analysis of content in order to identify the elements that characterize chronic diseases in children and adolescents and the specificities generated by these chronic conditions. The review of the literature resulted in a description of the series of articles identified by year of publication, country of origin, type of study, population and the chronic condition addressed. Thematic content analysis generated two core themes: Definition of chronic disease and Ways of handling chronic disease in children and teenagers. The main conclusion reached is that the age transitions when a disease is diagnosed and treated since childhood involve transformations that include changes in health facilities, discharge processes, decision making and networking that include family, hospital, school and institutions that guarantee the child's rights.

The features of the standard inner products between all the types of real and complex-energy solutions of the Schrödinger equation for 1-dimensional cut-off quantum potentials are worked out using a Gaussian regularization. A general Master Solution is introduced which describes any of the above solutions as particular cases. From it, a Master Inner Product is obtained which yields all the particular products. We show that the Outgoing and the Incoming Boundary Conditions fully determine the location of the momenta respectively in the lower and upper half complex plane even for purely imaginary momenta (anti-bound and bound solutions). © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

This paper presents a study aimed at investigating on whether the text mining technique using graphs can be used to analyze the relevance of the messages in online forums. Experiments were carried out with a program that calculates the thematic relevance of text contributions. In addition, the paper presents results found in the automatic analysis obtained by the application of the software. © 2011 IEEE. Source
