The challenge of hiring and retaining well-trained caregivers for the growing numbers of elders in need of care is a global concern. This study was designed to understand the views of direct care workers and included 15 nurse aides and med techs working in an assisted living and special care assisted living community for people with dementia. Each participant was provided with a digital camera and asked to take photographs "to show what caregiving means to you." Analysis is based on group discussions about the full set of photographs created by the direct care workers and individual written and oral narratives about four photographs chosen by each participant. The categories generated from these data represent the direct care workers' perceptions of the approaches to quality caregiving and the relationships involved in doing their jobs well. By focusing on the essential relationships and interactions, rather than primarily on the required care, we can begin to imagine the caregiving experience in terms of a communal rather than an institutional experience. We can then productively turn our focus to the people involved rather than emphasize their roles as providers or recipients of care. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC. Source

Nanohmics/UNC proposes the Argus-EC wide spectral band laser threat sensor, with capability to provide real-time gathering of data regarding laser radiation directed against instrumented military assets. The proposed team comprises Nanohmics, Inc., and the Center for Optoelectronics and Optical Communications at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The successful Phase I reduced the primary technical risks related to the Argus-EC sensor development. In Phase II, we propose to fabricate, characterize, and flight test sensor hardware. The overarching goal is to transition the sensor suite from the breadboard hardware stage, through laboratory and environmental testing, to a flight-tested prototype device (TRL 6-7). We expect that at the completion of Phase II, we will have demonstrated and tested a wide-spectral-band laser threat sensor suite that is capable of detecting and geolocating laser irradiation threats from the VIS through LWIR bands, with a dynamic range of 106 or greater. The developed hardware will be suitable for flight on small UAVs and will be ready for transition to operational testing and evaluation.
