Reversibility of ventricular dysfunction: clinical experience in a medical office
Barretto, Antonio Carlos Pereira;
Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S0066-782X2001001200005
Abstract: objective - to describe clinical observations of marked improvement in ventricular dysfunction in a medical office environment under circumstances differing from those in study protocols and multicenter studies performed in hospital or with outpatient cohorts. methods - eleven cardiac failure patients with marked ventricular dysfunction receiving treatment at a doctors office between 1994 and 1999 were studied. their ages ranged from 20 and 66 years (mean 39.42±14.05 years); 7 patients were men, 4 were women. cardiopathic etiologies were arterial hypertension in 5 patients, peripartum cardiomyopathy in 2, nondefined myocarditis in 2, and alcoholic cardiomyopathy in 4. initial echocardiograms revealed left ventricular dilatation (average diastolic diameter, 69.45±8.15mm), reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (0.38±0.08) and left atrial dilatation (43.36±5.16mm). the therapeutic approach followed consisted of patient orientation, elimination of etiological or causal factors of cardiac failure, and prescription of digitalis, diuretics, and angiotensinconverting enzyme inhibitors. results - following treatment, left ventricular ejection fraction changed to 0.63±0.09; left ventricular diameters changed to 57.18±8.13mm, and left atrium diameters changed to 37.27±8.05mm. maximum improvement was noted after 16.9±8.63 (6 to 36) months. conclusion - patients with serious cardiac failure and ventricular dysfunction caused by hypertension, alcoholism, or myocarditis can experience marked improvement in ventricular dysfunction after undergoing appropriate therapy within the venue of the doctor's office.

Importance-performance analysis: Revisiting a tool for the evaluation of clinical services  [PDF]
Juliana Rocha Gon?alves, Andres Pinto, Marilia Jesus Batista, Antonio Carlos Pereira, Glaucia Maria Bovi Ambrosano
Health (Health) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/health.2014.65041
Abstract:

The importance-performance analysis method (IPA) is used in market research in order to measure the level of customer satisfaction. The aim of this study was to evaluate and highlight the use of IPA as a management tool to measure quality of dental services. We suggest that this method can be easily implemented in a dental educational setting, as a performance outcome measure that includes patient input. The study was conducted in a dental service through a valid questionnaire, SERVQUAL. This instrument explores levels of service quality perceived by patients. It was conducted in four companies in Brazil in 2011 (derived from different industry segments; two from textiles, one from hospital care and the other from the manufacturing industry) in two States (S?o Paulo and Minas Gerais). These companies were covered by the same dental managed care organization which contracted with independent dentists to provide care. The study was divided into two stages: the first, in which beneficiaries answered the questionnaire prior to receiving dental treatment, and the second when the same beneficiaries answered after completing their dental treatment. Data obtained from SERVQUAL generated graphs

that were used to characterize the IPA matrix using several dimensions of care. The Assurance Dimension had the highest average in both expectation and perception. The Reliability dimension showed the value of the most negative GAP among the dimensions, and the best value occurred in the Responsiveness dimension. The IPA tool may be effective in Dental Medicine since it highlights the key points to be improved in the delivery of dental services in a clinical setting.

Academic Management Actions Facing Reforms in Curriculum and in Competencies Required to Graduating from an Accounting Sciences Course  [PDF]

Creative Education (CE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2016.77095
Abstract: This study aimed to assess academic management actions facing the set of professional competencies that graduates from an Accounting Sciences course need to graduate. To this end, we carried out a qualitative descriptive study. Data were collected through interviews and analyzed using content analysis. We found that the set of graduates’ professional competencies concerning organizational, technical-professional and social spheres requires academic management actions such as: 1) democratic governance and collective development of a curricular pedagogical project; 2) establishment of places for interaction between fields/disciplines (structuring teaching core); 3) use of conflict management strategies; 4) activities that favor professional ethics; 5) activities that favor leadership, commitment and trust; 6) curriculum flexibility; 7) strategic planning and evaluation of actions; 8) professional self-development. Activities and mechanisms that encourage the participation of all those involved in decision-making characterize democratic management and academic management’s leadership. We conclude that democratic-participative management may favor professionals’ graduation processes in the contemporary world, and may be a way of ensuring the development of students’ cognitive, operational, social and moral competencies, through their commitment to curriculum dynamics, to the development of thought and creation processes, to the establishment of participatory citizenship and to ethical education.

Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-282X2007000200010
Abstract: background: attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) is the most common neuropsychiatric disorder of infancy and one of the most prevalent chronic diseases found in schoolchildren. objective: to evaluate the prevalence of adhd in schoolchildren through the use of a questionnaire responded by school-teachers. method: a total of 774 children enrolled in the public and private school systems were evaluated. the diagnostic instrument used was a teacher adhd scale. results: results showed that 6.7% of children were considered highly likely to have the disorder. of the more severe cases of adhd, the hyperactive-impulsive subtype was more frequently identified in girls, while the inattentive subtype was more prevalent among boys. conclusion: the symptoms of attention deficit in hyperactive children may be underestimated by teachers since the symptoms of hyperactivity are more noticeable and disruptive.

Abstract: this study aims to estimate the prevalence of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) in scholar children through a teacher's questionnaire. a pilot study was conducted based in the total number of students under high school, in public and private schools in salvador, bahia, brazil. the instrument used was teacher's version of adhs scale. eight kids (5.3%) were recognized as highly probability of attention deficit disorder, three (2%) with high probability of subtype hyperactive/impulsive, and one (0.6%) as combined subtype. children with adhd might have serious social problems, not only brought by the disorder, but also due to co morbidity with other disorders, leading to serious social withdrawn. early diagnostic and treatment of adhd might improve educational and psychosocial development of these kids.

Menezes, Sara Pereira;Oliveira, Antonio Carlos de;
Ciência e Agrotecnologia , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-70542011000100003
Abstract: the ornamental species hemerocallis hybrida hort. is a perennial herbaceous plant originated in asia. the objective of the present work to study the artificial methods of hybridization? floral biology and reproductive system of daylily plants to support genetic and breeding programs of this species. the technique of covering the stigma of daylily's flowers with aluminum paper instead of covering the whole flower after the artificial crossing, provides higher setting and maturation of seed capsules (p < 0,001; test 2 contingency 2 x 2; correction of yates). blooming is the best phenophase for controlled crossings with estigmatic reception of 100%, and amount of viable pollen grains of 45% higher then the phase of the senescence. the studied species is hermaphrodite, essentially allogamous, with self-incompatibility and autogamy indexes equal to zero.
