Patient Education and Counseling | Year: 2014

Objective: Achieving patient-centeredness requires a paradigm shift in the provider-patient interaction. Participation, information, communication, and interaction are essential indicators in this area. The study examined the evaluation and implementation of indicators of patient-centeredness for chronically ill patients and center-specific differences in this regard. Methods: This cross-sectional study with mixed-method design combined focus groups and a questionnaire survey at 5 rehabilitation centers. The analysis included a qualitative component with summarizing content analysis and a descriptive-exploratory quantitative component. Results: Patients ( N= 32) rated the indicators of patient-centeredness favorably to very favorably (on a scale of 1. = very good to 6. = unsatisfactory). The centers exhibited significant differences in "patient participation" ( p<. .05). Dominant topics voiced in the focus groups were the desire for more individualized treatment ( n= 30) and more specific and rapid feedback on treatment goals ( n= 13). Conclusion: Considerable between-center differences exist, particularly in patients' opportunity to participate in treatment planning, which can be a starting point for improvements. Practice implications: Rehabilitation centers should ask patients to evaluate indicators of patient-centeredness and develop targeted actions for improvement. The patient survey shows that patients would like improvements in patient-centeredness in the overall rehabilitation system, particularly regarding patient participation, and training in this area is recommended. © 2014 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.

By using Kelvin's inversion, we construct analytical harmonic functions satisfying the zero-Neumann condition on the inner spherical wall everywhere except a single point where the velocity is infinite. This set of functions can be used to construct approximate velocity potentials associated with liquid sloshing in a spherical tank, and in other hydrodynamic problems.By using Kelvin's inversion, we construct analytical harmonic functions satisfying the zero-Neumann condition on the inner spherical wall everywhere except a single point where the velocity is infinite.

International Wood Products Journal | Year: 2014

This study determines the influence of mechanical surfacing on tensile shear strength (TSS) and wood failure percentage (WFP) of beech wood (Fagus sylvatica L.) at the wet stage according to prEN 302-1:2011 (tensile shear tests). The wood was planed, sanded and face milled, using different qualities of cutting edges and sanding grits. Roughness and wettability of the adherends were characterised, supplemented by environmental scanning electron microscopy images. The specimens were bonded by means of a one-component polyurethane adhesive and tested at the dry stage (pretreatment A1), at the wet stage (A4) and after re-drying (mA5). Results determined that the wettability and the wood structure's integrity are considered more decisive for the TSS at the wet stage than surface roughness. Planing with very dull knives caused the lowest TSS and WFP after A4 and the most subsurface damage. Face milled and sanded batches revealed the best performance. The TSS and WFP decreased significantly from A1 to A4, but recovered after mA5. © 2014 IWSc, the Wood Technology Society of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.

Medical Decision Making | Year: 2015

Objective. Research testing the concept of decision-making styles in specific contexts such as health care-related choices is missing. Therefore, we examine the contextuality of Scott and Bruce's (1995) General Decision-Making Style Inventory with respect to patient choice situations. Methods. Scott and Bruce's scale was adapted for use as a patient decision-making style inventory. In total, 388 German patients who underwent elective joint surgery responded to a questionnaire about their provider choice. Confirmatory factor analyses within 2 independent samples assessed factorial structure, reliability, and validity of the scale. Results. The final 4-dimensional, 13-item patient decision-making style inventory showed satisfactory psychometric properties. Data analyses supported reliability and construct validity. Besides the intuitive, dependent, and avoidant style, a new subdimension, called "comparative" decision-making style, emerged that originated from the rational dimension of the general model. Conclusions. This research provides evidence for the contextuality of decision-making style to specific choice situations. Using a limited set of indicators, this report proposes the patient decision-making style inventory as valid and feasible tool to assess patients' decision propensities. © The Author(s) 2015.

International Conference on Next Generation Mobile Applications, Services, and Technologies | Year: 2013

Systems to combine multiple network and online storage targets with implied redundancy, security and fault tolerance, so-called RAICs, have recently seen renewed discussion due to the growing popularity of convenient Cloud Storage service offerings. For mobile device access to RAICs, less research results are available. A 'smartphone for the future' with pervasive storage availability should be intelligently and autonomically connected to the Cloud. Such a constellation allows access without great expenses to multiple applications, data, and further resources so that the requirements of the users (security, privacy, safety, pricing, vendor selection, etc.) as well as the functional user objectives are rewarded in the best way. In addition, valuable battery capacities can be saved by selecting appropriate algorithms and parameters and by placing parts of the RAIC integration into the infrastructure. Using the example of distributed data storage, including specific resources services with versatile features such as extended storage capacity, backup, synchronization and collaborative sharing of data, we propose a mobile, energy-efficient and autonomic RAIC integration concept. Its effects are being evaluated with a storage controller on a smartphone. © 2013 IEEE.

IEEE International Symposium on Industrial Electronics | Year: 2010

The energy efficiency is critical for application of wireless sensor networks, since it is a main precondition for their long-live functionality, small modification costs and reliability. This paper deals with the placement of wireless nodes based on the modeling of radio wave propagation. The methods are realized in a planning tool CANDY Wireless Site Finder that provides optimized topologies of wireless networks under considering of transmitted power, frequencies, propagation environments (in-door/out-door) and obstacles given in CAD-compatible formats. The tool is integrated in the framework of other CANDY tools aimed to efficient planning of heterogeneous wired and wireless networks. © 2010 IEEE.

Like other western countries, Germany too reports record numbers of overweight and obese individuals with young German adults in a particularly high-risk position. As such, this study sought to investigate if food choice varied by the place of residence (dependent or independent) of these young adults. Using a self-administered questionnaire, analyses of quantitative data from 305 German students between the ages of 18 to 24 years indicate that students living in the family home consume more serves of both fruit and vegetables each day in comparison to young adults living independently. Further, higher proportions of dependent students eat more serves of every food group each day in comparison to their independent counterparts. The study finds a significant difference in mood, weight concern, and attitudes towards healthy eating between students under 21 years old and those above 21 years old. This study demonstrates clear implications for a number of stakeholders. The individuals themselves must better develop skills in both food choice and food management, including budgeting. Parents can facilitate this development whilst the children are in the family home and then encouraging empowerment once the student makes the transition to college or university. The article includes implications for marketers and social marketers; the former must offer more information and guidance on food choice, for example, through better food labelling, the latter must address these message issues for future attitude and behavioural change campaigns.

Nowadays, stationary clinical patient monitoring is achieved with professional, but very expensive devices, which are well established and commonly used. Also mobile monitoring is possible through devices from the same vendors of medical instruments, for instance during diagnosis and rehabilitation. A look on the sports consumer market shows that there are similar devices and systems available. For instance, heart rate monitoring with warning signals can be achieved at a much lower price with such devices quite easily. Furthermore, the versatile sensors, which are available today as sports equipment, can be linked through an open RF communication standard to other computing units, in particular to smartphones, which meanwhile also implement this new protocol. In this work, the possibilities and capabilities of such semi-professional device approaches are discussed. Scenarios like health and rehabilitation activities are under major scope in this comparative evaluation. The argumentation as also the derived concepts are complemented by experiments on the behavior and reliability of such sports sensors. © 2013 IEEE.
