Views of Parents for Difficulties in the Transition from Kindergarten to Primary School. The Role of Counseling and Future Trends in General and Special Education  [PDF]
Elli Samara, Vasiliki Ioannidi
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1105062
Abstract:
The importance of collaboration between parents and teachers in the field of education has been recognized internationally with the significance of active parental engagement in school life being highlighted. Especially, a child’s transition from Kindergarten to Primary School can be a life-changing experience not only for the child itself but also for its family. The present research was conducted in May 2018 with the school year having been completed in order to collect research data on parents’ views about the difficulties they consider children face during their transition to Primary School. The research was based on structured interviews which can both be used as a qualitative and quantitative research methodology. In this research the participants were sixteen (16) parents of kindergarten children from five (5) Kindergartens in the municipality of Thessaloniki. The results of this research fill in a small gap, demonstrating that parents consider the transition from Kindergarten to Primary school important and are aware of the challenges their children could face during this period of development. School counseling could provide both help and encouragement to those parents properly preparing to support their children through this major life change and to assure themselves that they will cope with any future difficulties effectively.
Speech and Communication Disorders: A Case Study as a Teaching Example of Lifelong Training for All  [PDF]
Vasiliki Ioannidi, Elli Samara
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1105162
Abstract:
Speech and communication disorders are a category of special educational needs and can affect the evolution of the individual. The aim of this report is to present a case study as a teaching example. While studying this case, real or hypothetical examples, which reflect more general situations, are presented in order to analyze and investigate them thoroughly. The purpose of this is to provide alternative solutions to the emerging problems. The presentation of written case studies can become a really important part of the educational procedure. Case studies form the core of the recognition process and signify the end of a successful training. Moreover, case studies are an important element for lifelong training of both educators and therapists. A hypothetical case is presented in this report together with the symptomatology it shows. Furthermore, the diagnosis procedure and the way the problems of the specific student have been dealt with are presented. Finally, some basic conclusions are reached based on the information that has already been presented.
Special Educational Strategies for Nursing Staff
Evangelia Loukidou, Vassiliki Ioannidi, Athena Kalokerinou
Choregia , 2010,
Abstract: Acting emotionally has been the explicit target for many service professions. However, in the case of nursing, the concept of emotional labour remains implicit and elaborated only when the adverse effects of emotional labour have already occurred. Since nursing work involves the effective management of emotions, it is an imperative to openly incorporate “emotional labour” in the nursing curricula. The rationale that underlies such proposition is that by preparing students for the emotional aspects of their future work, we equip them with techniques that will minimise the exhausting effects of emotional labour, we define more accurately their roles and hence teach them how to provide better services. Though the focus of this paper is on nursing education and practice, the concepts that are addressed can be applied in many professions, including sports management. The aim of the paper is to demonstrate the importance of education for the preparation of students for the emotional aspects of nursing work and to propose a special educational framework that places the emphasis on the emotional/ social skills that nursing students shoulddevelop during training and which will help them in managing their emotions and hence limit the effects of emotional labour.
Therapeutics of Diabetes Mellitus: Focus on Insulin Analogues and Insulin Pumps
Vasiliki Valla
Experimental Diabetes Research , 2010, DOI: 10.1155/2010/178372
Abstract: Aim. Inadequately controlled diabetes accounts for chronic complications and increases mortality. Its therapeutic management aims in normal HbA1C, prandial and postprandial glucose levels. This review discusses diabetes management focusing on the latest insulin analogues, alternative insulin delivery systems and the artificial pancreas. Results. Intensive insulin therapy with multiple daily injections (MDI) allows better imitation of the physiological rhythm of insulin secretion. Longer-acting, basal insulin analogues provide concomitant improvements in safety, efficacy and variability of glycaemic control, followed by low risks of hypoglycaemia. Continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) provides long-term glycaemic control especially in type 1 diabetic patients, while reducing hypoglycaemic episodes and glycaemic variability. Continuous subcutaneous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems provide information on postprandial glucose excursions and nocturnal hypo- and/or hyperglycemias. This information enhances treatment options, provides a useful tool for self-monitoring and allows safer achievement of treatment targets. In the absence of a cure-like pancreas or islets transplants, artificial “closed-loop” systems mimicking the pancreatic activity have been also developed. Conclusions. Individualized treatment plans for insulin initiation and administration mode are critical in achieving target glycaemic levels. Progress in these fields is expected to facilitate and improve the quality of life of diabetic patients.
Foreign Direct Investment and its Role in the Development of Greece
Vasiliki DELITHEOU
Economia : Seria Management , 2011,
Abstract: A distinctive characteristic of Global Economy over the last few decades has been the rising rate and impressive increase in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) globally. Due to the potential role that foreign direct investment may play in accelerating the growth rate and re-shaping the economy, many developing countries are seeking such types of investment that can multiply efforts being made towards the growth of their economy. Consequently, foreign direct investment has become an important source of private external finance for developing countries. For this reason, countries like Greece are attempting to focus on the implementation of policies that can attract specific FDI and thus achieve high rates of growth. Attracting FDI and the subsequent creation of sustainable enterprises that will provide an increase in jobs and will reinforce the productivity of the country, is today a national target.
The importance of envy and resentment at the thought of Kierkegaard
Vasiliki Tsakiri
Intellectum , 2010,
Abstract: The present paper explores the importance of envy and resentment for the development of Kierkegaard’s critique of modernity and the kind of man it reared. Specifically, in the context of Kierkegaard’s thought, envy and resentment are demonstrated as dominant –albeit latent – features of modern moral systems and institutions, and rationality itself as a cognitive theoretical system as well. Kierkegaard’s critique of public sphere and modern subject, which foreshadows some of Heidegger’s best known views (on ‘dictatorship of publicity’, ‘unoriginality’ etc), and the demonstration of similarities and differences with Nietzsche’s considerations and specifically with the latter’s are particularly emphasized. It is particularly important to demonstrate the inability to subsume the primordial moral experience under universal regulative contexts, a view which also has its problems. Kierkegaard’s elaboration of the so called ‘second ethics’ is examined under the light of its opposition to Kantian ethics and philosopher’s attempt to combine the original moral sphere with the original or ‘internal’ development of the subject. Therefore it is argued that, despite a certain degree of one-sidedness in Kierkegaard’s views – and Nietzsche’s secondly-, his critique of the logical foundations of moral systems can also be creative in that, highlighting the limits of regulative moral ventures, it leads to the reconfiguration of our views on morality and the subject itself.

International Journal of Caring Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: Background: Despite strict clinical measures, there are distinct steps in transfusion process which require acute attention.The nurse is responsible for insuring that the right unit is administered to the right patient. Knowledge of risks is essential toadminister and monitor transfusions safely.Aim: This study summarizes the available data concerning transfusion adverse events and provides theoretical and technicalaspects for improving transfusion practice.Methodology: A systematic review in PubMed, MedLine and MDConsult database was conducted. The research limitsincluded English texts, referring to transfusion risks and technological means aiming at transfusion safety.Results: Blood transfusion is a medical intervention that saves lives and improves the quality of life. The regulations forensuring the availability and assuring the quality of the blood component cannot avoid transfusion errors, placing patients atrisk. Most frequent errors are attributed to practitioners involved in the clinical transfusion process. Based on reports toSerious Hazards of Transfusion (SHOT) the risk of transfusion error is estimated at 1:16,500. Over the last years severalcommittees have recommended guidance for enhancing the safety of blood ordering and administration. Moreover, newtechnology like barcode on patient wristband manages to improve the performance in each step.Conclusion: Safe transfusion process depends on a series of linked processes and nurses should take specific measuresreferring to pre- and post-transfusion stage. Technological innovations could help patients in need of transfusion therapy.

Introduction Diabetes, being one of the primary causes of increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in Western countries, constitutes a large burden to health care systems in terms of both direct and indirect costs. Therefore, efficient glucose control (attainment of normal HbA1C, prandial and postprandial glucose levels) is essential to the prevention of life-threatening complications of the disease. However, most patients fail to sustain long-term, adequate control through life-style modifications or even combined oral medications [1, 2] (biguanides, sulfonylureas, meglitinides, glitazones, incretin mimetics, or DPP-4 inhibitors). Indeed, multidrug therapies are currently reconsidered, with recent studies questioning their long-term therapeutic benefit over side effects or disease complications [3]. Thus, the increasing need of aggressive diabetes treatment has led to the improvement of insulin therapy and its implementation techniques. The development of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) pumps and short-acting
Fatou's web
Vasiliki Evdoridou
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: Let $f$ be Fatou's function, that is, $f(z)= z+1+e^{-z}$. We prove that the escaping set of $f$ has the structure of a `spider's web' and we show that this result implies that the non-escaping endpoints of the Julia set of $f$ together with infinity form a totally disconnected set. We also give a well-known transcendental entire function, due to Bergweiler, for which the escaping set is a spider's web and we point out that the same property holds for families of functions.
Fast escaping points of entire functions: a new regularity condition

Mathematics , 2015, DOI: 10.1017/S0305004115000602
Abstract: Let $f$ be a transcendental entire function. The fast escaping set, $A(f)$, plays a key role in transcendental dynamics. The quite fast escaping set, $Q(f)$, defined by an apparently weaker condition is equal to $A(f)$ under certain conditions. Here we introduce $Q_2(f)$ defined by what appears to be an even weaker condition. Using a new regularity condition we show that functions of finite order and positive lower order satisfy $Q_2(f)=A(f)$. We also show that the finite composition of such functions satisfies $Q_2(f)=A(f)$. Finally, we construct a function for which $Q_2(f) \neq Q(f)= A(f)$.
