Assessment of strategic management practice of malaria control in the dangme west district, GhanaArticle submitted to the west african college of nursing for the award of a fellow  [PDF]
Adelaide Maria Ansah Ofei
Health (Health) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/health.2011.36059
Abstract: Strategic management (SM) practice was as-sessed in all HCFs both in the public and private and some chemical shops within the Dangme West district using semi-structured question-naires. In-depth interviews were carried out with healthcare managers in their clinical setting. The study utilized both qualitative and quantitative methods in describing the SM practice. Healthcare managers were using all the elements of SM in the management of malaria but these were not holistically coordinated. Present were short ranged informal planning based on the objectives of NMCP and day-to-day operation of the HCFs especially with Ghana Health Service facilities. Due to homogenous nature of Dangme West district, management of culture wasn’t given much attention by healthcare managers though healthcare providers were acutely aware of its importance to quality service delivery. Competition was woefully absent in the healthcare environment. No formal structure has been created for the management of malaria control activities with the exception of the involvement of Community Based agents. The district was widely implementing all the strategies of the NMCP with favourable outcomes.
The Effect of Rainfall Characteristics and Tillage on Sheet Erosion and Maize Grain Yield in Semiarid Conditions and Granitic Sandy Soils of Zimbabwe

Applied and Environmental Soil Science , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/243815
Abstract: In semiarid regions, rainfall is one of the primary factors affecting soil erosion and crop production under rain-fed agriculture. The study sought to quantify the effect of rainfall characteristics on sheet erosion and maize grain yield under different tillage systems. It was carried out under semiarid conditions and infertile sandy soils of Zimbabwe. Rainfall amount and intensity were recorded every 24 hours, while sheet erosion was measured from four tillage systems (Conventional Tillage (CT), Mulch Ripping (MR), Tied Ridging (TR) and Bare Fallow (BF)). Maize (Zea mays L.) was grown on three tillage systems (CT, MR, and TR). Rainfall amount varied significantly ( ) between seasons (164–994?mm). CT recorded the highest average soil losses (15?t/ha), while MR and TR recorded 1.3 and 1.2?t/ha, respectively. Maize grain yields increased with increasing seasonal rainfall giving yield-responses of 0.9?t/ha (TR) to 1.3?t/ha (MR) for every 100?mm rainfall increment. Overall, treatments didnot differ significantly ( ), except during drier seasons ( ). Regression equations showed that yields can be confidently predicted using rainfall amount and time, with values of 0.82 to 0.94. Maize grain yields proved to be mostly dependent on rainfall amount than fertility. The productivity of the soils decreased with increased length of cultivation. 1. Introduction Rill and gully erosion in the smallholder areas of Zimbabwe is largely under control through mechanical conservation structures such as contour ridges, grassed waterways, and storm drains [1]. However, sheet erosion is still a major threat to soil fertility and productivity. The sheet erosion process is selective and deprives the soil of its fine particles (clay and organic matter) [2]. These particles are easily splashed out and carried in suspension, while the heavier particles remain behind [3–5]. The soils are thus impoverished as these nutrient reservoirs are lost together with inherent and applied plant nutrients. The bulk density of the soils is increased and plant available water is decreased. According to Stocking and Peake [6], the changes in soil conditions, in many cases, may be describing the effect of erosion induced low soil productivity. In soil erosion research, rainfall amount and intensity (erosive power of rainfall) have been found to be the fundamental factors affecting soil erosion [7, 8]. The impact of raindrops on the soil surface results in temporary capping of the soil and lowered infiltration rate, thus generating runoff [9–11]. Runoff is directly dependent on rainfall amount and
Sécurité des patients et culture de sécurité: une revue de la littérature
Nascimento,Adelaide;
Ciência & Saúde Coletiva , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-81232011000900027
Abstract: depuis la publication du rapport "to err is human" par l'institut de médecine américain, la sécurité des patients est devenu un sujet incontournable des politiques publiques en santé: entre 44 000 et 98 000 personnes décèdent tous les ans aux etats-unis suite à des événements indésirables. en plus de mettre en évidence la nécessité de placer la sécurité des patients comme une priorité des autorités médicales, ce rapport centre ses recommandations sur le changement de culture à l'h?pital. c'est ainsi que le terme "culture de sécurité", utilisé dans le nucléaire depuis 30 ans, fait son apparition en milieu médical à partir des années 2000. l'objectif de cet article est de proposer une revue de littérature sur la culture de sécurité dans le domaine de la sécurité des patients. la recherche bibliographique a été réalisée sur la base de données sciencedirect. au total, 74 références ont été sélectionnées dont 48 ont été retenues pour la rédaction de cet article. l'analyse du matériel retenu a guidé la rédaction de cet article par thématique, à savoir: l'historique de la notion de culture de sécurité et ses approches classiques; et l'apparition de la notion de culture de sécurité en milieu médical, les méthodes d'évaluation existants et les moyens de son développement durable.

UMA EXPERIêNCIA EXTRACURRICULAR DE MATEMáTICA COM CRIAN AS CARENCIADAS. AN EXTRACURRICULAR EXPERIENCE OF MATHEMATICS WITH DEPRIVED CHILDREN
Carreira, Adelaide
Revista Eletr?nica de Educa??o , 2012,
Abstract: Descrevemos a concep o e a aplica o em Portugal de um projeto extracurricular – “O Continhas” – concebido e orientado simultaneamente para os alunos da pré-escola e dos quatro primeiros anos de escolaridade e para os seus respetivos docentes, o qual, em ambiente lúdico e descontraído, transmitisse às crian as participantes ideias, conceitos e métodos da matemática, procurando encorajar nelas a cria o de pensamento lógico-abstrato e, em paralelo, interessá-las e aproximá-las, de maneira rigorosa, mas divertida, de uma disciplina que tanta resistência e rejei o costuma provocar. Instrumentos centrais do projeto s o os seus “Objetos de Aprendizagem”, idealizados visando a aquisi o de conhecimento conceptual e formal de matemática e o espertar da oralidade, do raciocínio abstrato e da capaciade de cálculo. Relatamos particularmente a experiência da aplica o do projeto em uma escola pública, inserida em uma zona ocupada por uma popula o imigrante de baixa renda. Em uma institui o com um aproveitamento escolar bastante inferior à media nacional, a matemática era alvo de um amplo desapre o; em um meio com sérias carências, comuns à institui o e ao alunado, os comportamentos desviantes faziam parte da experiência quotidiana. A aplica o do projeto promoveu altera es positivas nos procedimentos individuais e inter-pessoais dos alunos, implicando uma série de melhorias perceptíveis na sua conduta social e no seu dsempenho escolar global. We describe the conception and application in Portugal of an extra-curricular project – “O Continhas” – conceived and oriented for pre-school and primary school students and their respective teachers, which in a playful and relaxed atmosphere, transfers mathematical ideas, concepts and methods to the participating children, aiming the stimulation of their logical and abstract thinking, and, simultaneously, engaging their interest in and bringing them closer to – in a rigorous, but entertaining way –, a discipline that entails so much resistance and rejection. Central to the project are its ‘Learning Objects’, procedures directed towards the acquisition of conceptual and formal mathematical knowledge, as well as the awakening of orality, abstract thinking and calculation skills. We report the experience of the application of the project in a public school, inserted in a zone occupied by economically deprived recent immigrants. In an environment with serious shortages, common both to the school and to its students, mathematics was the target of generalized disregard; and in an institution with a scholarly rating well belo

Abstract: objectives: apprehend the social representations of violence made by older people and professionals that serve the elderly at the complaints. methodology: this is an exploratory research using a qualitative approach, conducted with the guardianship of the public service/office specialist in the city of jo?o pessoa- paraíba, with thirty-four seniors who attend the elderly victim, who answered a semi-structured interview. data were processed by alceste 4.8 software. results: the data submitted to alceste 4.8 software, was formed by a corpus corresponding to 34 units of text or initial context (icu's), withdrew from the hierarchical analysis 105 words, equivalent to 86.87%, pointing to two major classes: meanings attributed to violence and the elderly and professional impact of violence on the lives of the elderly according to the subjects interviewed. final considerations: the social representations about the consequences of violence to the elderly and their impact on the professional front on this issue indicate that the studies so far carried out in brazil on violence considers this phenomenon a public health problem. the ill-treatment and neglect against the elderly are a serious problem, not yet diagnosed in all its extension, especially in the family and institutional, deserving, therefore greater attention from government and non-governmental organizations.

Abstract: serological, epidemiological and molecular aspects of hepatitis c virus (hcv) infection were evaluated in 183 subjects from londrina, paraná, brazil, and adjacent areas. serum samples which tested anti-hcv positive by microparticle enzyme immunoassay (meia) obtained from eight patients with chronic hepatitis c, 48 blood donors, and 127 patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (hiv) were submitted to another enzyme immunoassay (elisa) and to the polymerase chain reaction (pcr). about 78.7% of samples were also reactive by elisa, with the greater proportion (70.8%) of discordant results verified among blood donors. a similar finding was observed for hcv-rna detection by pcr, with 111/165 (67.3%) positive samples, with higher rates among hiv-positive subjects and patients with chronic hepatitis than among blood donors. sixty-one pcr-positive samples were submitted to hcv genotyping, with 77.1, 21.3 and 1.6% of the samples identified as types 1, 3 and 2, respectively. finally, analysis of some risk factors associated with hcv infection showed that intravenous drug use was the most common risk factor among hiv/hcv co-infected patients, while blood transfusion was the most important risk factor in the group without hiv infection. the present study contributed to the knowledge regarding risk factors associated with hcv infection and the distribution of hcv genotypes in the population evaluated.
