What Are Basic Human Needs? A Challenge to the Self-Determination Theory in the SST Context  [PDF]
Larry Sau Kei Leung
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2019.107063
Abstract: Self-determination theory suggests that autonomy, competence and relatedness are the sole basic human needs that foster volitional forms of motivation. Given that perceived control, ease of use and usefulness have been found to enhance intrinsic motivation in the context of self-service technology (SST), it is argued that these later factors are also basic human needs that nurture volitional forms of motivation. Hence, it is hypothesized that the relationships between perceived control, ease of use and usefulness and the use of SSTs are mediated by self-determined motivation. Results suggest that self-determined motivation mediated the relationships between ease of use, usefulness and the use of SSTs but not the relationship between perceived control and the use of SSTs. Thus, basic human needs are not limited to autonomy, competence and relatedness; perceived ease of use and usefulness may also need to be included. Theoretical and managerial implications are also discussed.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome: A Diagnostic and Therapeutic Challenge

Journal of Pediatric Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is the commonest endocrinopathy in women with a multi-factorial etiology, and presents not just a diagnostic dilemma but also a therapeutic challenge as well. The clinical features of the syndrome in adolescents result from hyperandrogenemia and oligo/anovulation. Most women presenting with non-pregnancy related secondary amenorrhea, oligomenorrhoea, acne, hirsutism, and infertility have PCOS. Consensus diagnostic criteria have been developed by the United States National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology and American Society of Reproduction (Rotterdam criteria). PCOS needs to be suspected, recognized, and treated to prevent some long term complications. Treatment modalities need to be individualized to address the specific concerns of each female presenting with this entity. This article reviews the diagnosis and principles of management of PCOS.

Basic Psychological Needs in Childhood and Adolescence  [PDF]
Michael Borg-Laufs
Journal of Education and Research , 2013, DOI: 10.3126/jer.v3i0.7851
Abstract: In this article, four basic psychological needs, derived from psychological basic research, are presented. These are the needs for orientation and control, pleasure gain/distress avoidance, self esteem protection, and attachment. It is argued, that the satisfaction or violation of these needs has a main impact on the development of children and adolescents. To take these needs into account in various areas of pedagogical and psychosocial work gives good opportunities to help children and adolescents developing in a desired direction. The use of this concept is helpful in western societies as well as in developing countries.

Abstract: Objective: to analyze the Horta's Basic Human Needs Theory taking with theoretical reference methodological criteria for the analysis of conceptual models of Fawcett. Methods: search descriptive analytical developed through a systematic review of all publications and presentations available from Horta, thereby determining, exactly what was described on it in order to present its content and indicate your organization, avoiding inferences, standings, interpretations of other researchers about the work of the author. The analysis was presented in a descriptive way, that does not require judgments about their origin and content, and reproducing or reporting exactly what was proposed. Results: The completions of the analysis according to the criteria of Fawcett, enabled expand knowledge about the theory, understand how emerged, which influenced its development, its purpose, focus, its scope, and what the contributions he brought for Nursing. Do you can say that this work was of extreme importance to the authors and contributed to scientific and professional growth of the same, and it is hoped may also serve to broaden the knowledge of that subject or are interested in who will be interested to from that reading. Conclusions: Despite the undeniable contribution to the theory of Nursing Brazilian Basic Human Needs, remains a challenge, the need to use that model as impetus for the practice and research in nursing and thus contributing to the reassessment and upgrade of Horta Theory.
Ovarian Cancer Pathogenesis: A Model in Evolution
Alison M. Karst,Ronny Drapkin
Journal of Oncology , 2010, DOI: 10.1155/2010/932371
Abstract: Ovarian cancer is a deadly disease for which there is no effective means of early detection. Ovarian carcinomas comprise a diverse group of neoplasms, exhibiting a wide range of morphological characteristics, clinical manifestations, genetic alterations, and tumor behaviors. This high degree of heterogeneity presents a major clinical challenge in both diagnosing and treating ovarian cancer. Furthermore, the early events leading to ovarian carcinoma development are poorly understood, thus complicating efforts to develop screening modalities for this disease. Here, we provide an overview of the current models of ovarian cancer pathogenesis, highlighting recent findings implicating the fallopian tube fimbria as a possible site of origin of ovarian carcinomas. The ovarian cancer model will continue to evolve as we learn more about the genetics and etiology of this disease.

Abstract: A 45-year-old premenopausal woman was incidentally found to have an abdominal mass, 3 years after removal of a cutaneous melanoma lesion. Ultrasound and CT scan revealed left two solid masses, which were found to be an ovarian tumor at laparotomy. Left oophorectomy was performed. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry showed melanoma metastasis to the ovary. Nine months later, the patient developed epilepsy and confusion. Magnetic Resonance Imaging showed unique Wright frontal lobe lesion. She underwent stereotactic radio surgery and dacarbazine monotherapy. For months later, the patient is died from disseminate disease progression.Ovarian metastasis is an unusual presentation of cutaneous melanoma and the prognosis was dismal. As illustrated by this case report, a differential diagnosis of a metastatic malignant melanoma must be considered.The ovary is a frequent site of secondary spread from extra-ovarian malignancies. Approximately 6-7% of the patients presenting with suspected ovarian neoplasm will prove to suffer from metastatic disease to the ovary (1). Ovarian involvement by metastatic malignant melanoma is relatively uncommon and it is rare for melanoma to present clinically as an ovarian mass (2). Solitary metastatic malignant melanoma to the ovary may be confused with primary ovarian carcinoma. We present this case report of metastatic ovarian malignant melanoma simulating primary ovarian cancer.In February 2010, a 45 years old premenopausal female patient presented to us because acute pelvic pain in relation with left ovarian mass. She gave no significant gynecologic history. Abdominal and gynaecologic exam disclosed left adnexal mass. Abdominal ultrasound completed with computed tomography (CT) scan revealed two solid irregular masses measuring respectively 84 × 46 mm, 45 × 34 mm, located centrally in the pelvis and appearing to originate from the left side of the uterus. Thorax (CT) scan and biologic laboratory investigations were normal. The tumor mar

Abstract: In-depth qualitative interviews regarding their information needs were undertaken with ten South Australian women diagnosed with PCOS. These women were aged 28–38 years and at differing stages of their fertility experience. The time since diagnosis ranged from 1–17 years. The main outcome measures sought were the identification of the information needs of women diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) during different periods of their lives; how and where they obtain this information, and the consequences of this information for future treatment and health outcomes.The women with PCOS in this study preferentially used the Internet for their information needs, as it had the advantages of convenience, privacy and accessibility, when compared with traditional mechanisms of information provision.Giving a name to a collection of symptoms may bring relief and provide recognition that there really is a problem. However, with a diagnosis comes the need to have questions answered. A diagnosis of a chronic condition such as PCOS necessitates decision-making regarding possible treatment strategies and lifestyle choices. Information is needed in order to participate in shared decision making. The Internet proved to be a most versatile and beneficial source of information source for women with PCOS, if its limitations are taken into consideration.Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), the most common endocrine disorder in women [1], generates numerous health problems, usually commencing at puberty. PCOS affects approximately 5 to 10% of women of reproductive age in Australia [2].The aetiology of PCOS is unclear: however, genetic inheritance may be implicated [3], and both insulin and androgen production are affected. Women diagnosed with PCOS have an increased risk of menstrual disorders, hirsutism, infertility, miscarriage, obesity, cardiovascular complications, endometrial cancer, and a seven fold greater risk of Type II diabetes [4].The symptoms of PCOS may appear at an

Abstract: Knowing that hypertension is a chronic disease, in which the individual may have his basic needs changed, resulting in having to learn to deal with a new life-style, we considered it appropriate to study this theme. It was designed to identify the affected basic needs and to discover the influence of life-style and of hypertension in alteration of those needs. The study is a descriptive-exploratory, accomplished at the Campus of a State Public University in Fortaleza – Ceará, Brazil. This study used as an instrument of data collection in the interview route the “Theory of Basic Human Needs” by Wanda Horta. The sample of this study consists of 30 employees of the university restaurent that answered a questionair.The study used a quantitative methodology and the speechs were classified in thematic units according to Bardin. The balance of those needs was focused, which is important for the blood pressure control, emphasizing sleep, rest, nutrition, socioeconomic condition and physical health.
