Keuka Park, NY, United States

Keuka College is an independent, liberal arts-based, four-year, residential, coeducational college that emphasizes experiential learning as well as career and pre-professional education. Founded in 1890, the school is located in Keuka Park, on the shores of Keuka Lake in the U.S. state of New York's Finger Lakes region. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching classifies Keuka College under the "Master's Colleges and Universities " category, noting its curricular engagement and outreach and partnerships. Keuka is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. The school offers both bachelor's and master's degrees on its home campus. In addition, its Accelerated Studies for Adults Program offers degree completion at more than 20 sites throughout Upstate New York, as well as through online courses. The traditional student-faculty ratio is 14:1. The ratio of women to men is 3:1. Total enrollment of the college is 1,873. There are 921 ASAP, 1,546 full-time and 327 part-time students. Keuka College aims to provide an affordable, private liberal arts, science, and career education. As a result, over 93% of the full-time undergraduates at Keuka receive some form of need-based financial support, with the College awarding over 11 million dollars in aid each year.Since the early 2000s, Keuka has also become a major educational provider in the Pacific Rim, with more than 3,000 students pursuing Keuka degrees at partner universities in China and Vietnam. Situated on picturesque Keuka Lake, picked by the Weather Channel as one of the best lakeside retreats, Keuka College students, faculty and staff enjoy more than a thousand feet of shoreline, including Point Neamo, a private beach with a boat house and equipment for checkout. For additional recreational and artistic pursuits, Keuka students have access to the 34-acre Jephson Community Athletic Complex, the indoor sports facilities at the Weed Physical Arts Center, and the Aben and Lightner Art Galleries inside the Lightner Library.

Social Work in Health Care

Today’s health care environments require organizational competence as well as clinical skill. Economically driven business paradigms and the principles underlying the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 emphasize integrated, collaborative care delivered using transdisciplinary service models. Attention must be focused on achieving patient care goals while demonstrating an appreciation for the mission, priorities and operational constraints of the provider organization. The educational challenge is to cultivate the ability to negotiate “ideology” or ideal practice with the practical realities of health care provider environments without compromising professional ethics. Competently exercising such ability promotes a sound “profession-in-environment” fit and enhances the recognition of social work as a crucial patient care component.

There is limited research related to perceived educational needs among the newly diagnosed first-time stroke population. This descriptive correlational study was conducted to determine the perceived importance to learn about specific stroke-related topics and the degree of satisfaction with stroke education. Seventy-one newly diagnosed stroke patients from two metropolitan hospitals received a self-report Likert-type questionnaire consisting of eight domains related to different aspects of stroke education. The questionnaire was distributed 24-72 hours after admission to the hospital, upon discharge, and 2 weeks postdischarge. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t tests, and repeated measures analysis of variance. Medical knowledge and medication treatment were rated the most important to learn. Treatment of stroke with herbal or alternative medicine and dietary habits were the least important of the eight domains. Overall, patients were not satisfied with stroke education.

Problem: Patient delay in seeking treatment for stroke symptoms is a major factor in morbidity and mortality due to stroke. Every 4 minutes, someone dies of a stroke, and 54% of those deaths occur before the patient reaches the hospital. Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship of somatic awareness and symptom attribution to treatment-seeking behaviors in ischemic stroke patients. Design: This was a descriptive, correlational pilot study. Setting: This study was carried out in three tertiary-care hospitals in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Binghamton, New York. Sample: Twenty patients diagnosed with ischemic stroke were included. Instruments: The Modified Somatic Perception Questionnaire measured somatic awareness, and the Symptom Interpretation Questionnaire measured symptom attribution. Results: There was no relationship identified between somatic awareness or symptom attribution and treatment-seeking behaviors. Significance was identified, using t-test comparisons, between physical attribution scores and insurance status (p = .038) and family history of stroke (p = .026). Significant correlations, r = .386 and r = .433, respectively, were identified between somatic awareness and symptom attribution and education. Conclusion: Somatic awareness and symptom attribution were not found to be significantly correlated to time to care. These results must be tempered with the knowledge that the data were derived from a small sample and that some data were missing due to a lack of recall. Significance was identified, in a comparison of the group means, involving insurance status and family history of stroke, to somatic awareness and symptom attribution. Significant correlation was identified between education and these factors. Future research involving these factors, using a revised methodology, should be considered. © 2014 American Association of Neuroscience Nurses. Source

The conductors of this study reviewed prediction research and studied the accomplishments and compromises in predicting world records and best performances in track and field and swimming. The results of the study showed that prediction research only promises to describe the historical trends in track and field and swimming performances, to study the limits of human body based on current data, to examine factors that affect human's running, jumping, throwing, and swimming, and to understand the characteristics of human beings. Prediction research cannot accurately predict new world records and future best performances. In the future, prediction research should become an integrated research field consisting of different specialty areas. Researchers need to develop a better model in which random variables could be separated out as independent variables in order to reflect the complex interaction effects and to understand the nature, characteristics, and limitations of humans using world record/best performance data. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

Resistance to endocrine therapy is a major clinical problem in breast cancer. The role of ERα splice variants in endocrine resistance is largely unknown. We observed reduced protein expression of an N-terminally truncated ERα46 in endocrine-resistant LCC2, LCC9, and LY2 compared to MCF-7 breast cancer cells. Transfection of LCC9 and LY2 cells with hERα46 partially restored growth inhibition by TAM. Overexpression of hERα46 in MCF-7 cells reduced estradiol (E2)-stimulated endogenous pS2, cyclin D1, nuclear respiratory factor-1 (NRF-1), and progesterone receptor transcription. Expression of oncomiR miR-21 was lower in TAM-resistant LCC9 and LY2 cells compared to MCF-7 cells. Transfection with ERα46 altered the pharmacology of E2 regulation of miR-21 expression from inhibition to stimulation, consistent with the hypothesis that hERα46 inhibits ERα activity. Established miR-21 targets PTEN and PDCD4 were reduced in ERα46-transfected, E2-treated MCF-7 cells. In conclusion, ERα46 appears to enhance endocrine responses by inhibiting selected ERα66 responses. © 2010 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. Source
