Le Dominique Interactif
Valérie Ouellette
Tutorials in Quantitative Methods for Psychology , 2005,
Abstract: Cet article présente le Dominique Interactif, une bande dessinée interactive et multimédia unique, servant à évaluer sept troubles de la santé mentale chez les jeunes. La version pour les six à onze ans est adaptée aux limites cognitives des enfants et comporte plusieurs avantages. Malgré quelques limites, cet instrument permet d obtenir des informations fiables de la part de l enfant sur sa santé mentale. La fidélité et la validité de cet outil sont meilleures que celles des autres instruments traditionnels servant à mesurer la santé mentale des enfants. En combinant les résultats de ce questionnaire avec les informations des parents, professionnels et enseignants, le Dominique Interactif permet aussi d effectuer une évaluation complète de la santé mentale de l enfant. Enfin, son utilisation simple et rapide facilite l évaluation clinique des enfants par les professionnels, permet l évaluation de programmes d intervention et favorise l intervention précoce (Valla et al., 2000).
Guide de compilation et d analyse de données pour la version enfants de la Batterie de Montréal d évaluation de l Amusie (BMEA)
Annie Taillon
Tutorials in Quantitative Methods for Psychology , 2005,
Abstract: L amusie congénitale consiste en une difficulté hautement spécifique à développer une compétence musicale normale, malgré des habiletés langagières et mnémoniques intactes. On estime à environ 4% la prévalence de l amusie dans la population générale. L amusie peut être détectée à l aide de la Batterie de Montréal d évaluation de l Amusie (BMEA). En 2005, une version pour enfants de la BMEA a été élaborée par Villeneuve et Peretz. Cette version est constituée de cinq taches, chacune évaluant le fonctionnement d une composante musicale distincte. Le guide qui suit a été élaboré afin de faciliter l entrée, la compilation ainsi que l analyse des données de la version enfant de la BMEA. Quelques suggestions et mises en gardes relatives à l utilisation de la batterie sont également mentionnées.

Performance of commonly used respiratory questionnaire items in a cohort of infants born preterm  [PDF]
Elizabeth Boggs, Nori Minich, Anna Maria Hibbs
Open Journal of Pediatrics (OJPed) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojped.2013.33045
Abstract:

Background: Items from respiratory questionnaires validated in older children are often used in research studies of preterm infants, although they have not been validated in this population. We aimed to assess both test-retest reliability and convergent validity of a group of commonly used respiratory questionnaire items in a cohort of preterm infants. Methods: The health status of 300 preterm infants was assessed by telephone questionnaire as part of a prospective cohort study. The questionnaire items analyzed in this study included six commonly used respiratory questions. The questionnaire responses used in this analysis were from the telephone follow-up in this cohort at six months of age adjusted for prematurity. A repeat interview one to two weeks after this interview was performed in a subset of subjects to assess test-retest reliability. The convergent validity of the respiratory items was also assessed by calculating the associations among the responses to the respiratory questions. Results: A total of 43 infants were singletons that met the criteria for test-retest reliability analysis. All of the respiratory questions demonstrated fair to strong test-retest reliability. Among 206 respondents, respiratory questionnaire items also demonstrated strong convergent validity, in that caretakers reporting wheezing or whistling in the chest were significantly more likely to also report other respiratory events. Conclusions: This selection of standard respiratory questionnaire items performed well for research purposes in this population.

Physician versus Patient Perception of Physician Hospital Discharge Communication: A Preliminary Study  [PDF]
Michael J. Maniaci, Michael G. Heckman, Nancy L. Dawson
Open Journal of Internal Medicine (OJIM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojim.2014.44016
Abstract: Background: Physician discharge instructions are critical to patient care because they are the link transitioning the hospital care plan to the home. We hypothesize that physician perception of discharge instructions communication is better than patient perception. Objective: In a preliminary study, to compare patient and physician perception of communication at discharge. Design: Observational, survey-based. Setting: 330-bed adult teaching hospital. Participants: Surveys were mailed to 100 patients discharged home and 49 internal medicine physicians responsible for those patients’ care. Each physician had between 1 and 4 patients surveyed. Measurements: Patients and physicians received anonymous 5-item questionnaires concerning physician communication at discharge. Patient surveys inquired about their physicians’ communication at the specific physician encounter, while physician surveys asked about the physicians’ overall self-perception of discharge communication skills. Results: Completed questionnaires were returned by 59 patients and 40 physicians. Physicians reported a noticeably better perception of communication than their patients regarding spending adequate time reviewing the discharge plan (83% vs. 61%, P = 0.027), speaking slowly enough to understand (98% vs. 80%, P = 0.013), using wording that could be easily understood (100% vs. 68%, P < 0.001) and taking time to answer questions before discharge (85% vs. 59%, P = 0.008). Perception of discharge communication improved with physician experience for several survey items. Conclusions: This study provides evidence suggesting that physician perception of communication at discharge is better than patient perception. Future studies of larger sample size and direct patient-physician pairing focusing on patient satisfaction and outcomes are needed.

Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2011.24040
Abstract: The benefits of parks and recreation are very serious. The purpose of this study was to investigate the attitudes of the people that use the campus area of Democritus university of Thrace, in Komotini. There are series of factors that should be taken under consideration when campus is under planned. In this research took part 742 people and more specific, they were: under graduate students, post graduate students, tutors as well as teaching and administrative staff. An analysis of Principle components has been accomplished and 8 factors have been accrued with eigenvalue more than 1. These factors explain the 55.32% of the whole variation. The conclusion of this study was that a model for campus planning must consists of these 8 parameters: land, climate, vegetation, physical activity, environmental consciousness, daily users of territory and inhabitants of an area.
The Spirituality Questionnaire: Core Dimensions of Spirituality  [PDF]
Jochen Hardt, Sonja Schultz, Carola Xander, Gerhild Becker, Malgorzata Dragan
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2012.31017
Abstract: Various approaches are used to assess spirituality via questionnaires, ranging from one-dimensional scales to highly multidimensional models. For the present investigation, an – in spirituality research unorthodox – factor analytic method was chosen: principal axis analysis with oblique rotation. An item collection was examinated and cross-validated via internet. The spirituality questionnaire contains four dimensions: belief in God, search for meaning, mindfulness, and feeling of security. They present with high internal consistencies. The factorial structure of the four dimensions was confirmed. Based on the better fit of this method of extraction the authors assume that these dimensions may depict the concept of spirituality more precisely than the previously used factor analytic methods, i.e. the principal component analysis (PCA) with orthogonal rotation.

Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.514145
Abstract: The work was carried out to find out the extent the teachers and students are aware of safety practices and device while working in the biology laboratories during practical sessions. The research questions were answered and the significant of the work was outlined. The methodology was thoroughly explained; sets of questionnaires were used for teachers and students, followed with interviewed. These methods were used as a means of data collection. Ten (10) secondary schools were selected randomly for the work. A total of twenty-three (23) biology teachers and one hundred (100) students were used. The data collected were analyzed, which revealed that 71%of the students and 73% of the teachers have good knowledge of safety practices in biology laboratories. Majority of the biology teachers in the selected secondary schools are Bsc Ed holders, with the number constitutes 65% with (5 - 10) years working experiences. Majority of the selected biology laboratories have inadequate first aid kits. The only available items were cotton wool, bandage, Delton solution and iodine solution. The finding revealed that teachers and students in the selected schools have good knowledge of safety practices. However, majority of the schools lacked safety gadget and inadequate first aid kits.
STUDY OF ABORTION AT FARAH MATERNITY HOSPITAL
GH.Jalali,H.Peyman,A.Majd
Iranian Journal of Public Health , 1973,
Abstract: This study on abortion was carried out at Farah Maternity Hospital on the basis of : 1) the total admission recorded between 1960-1967 and 2) an interview questionnaire on 1009 women who had been referred for complications of termination of pregnancy, induced or spontaneous , between October 1968 and March 1969.There was an increase of 33.2% in admission for deliveries and 28.6% for abortions. The apparent increase in admission signifies a greater use of hospital facilities for deliveries; whiles the increase in admission for abortion, though not as high as the admission for delivery, still may be an indication of a trend towards more use of abortion for unwanted pregnancies. The percentage of abortions in this study ranged between 11-17% but it is about 15% for recent years. The increasing rate of abortion after the year 1966 (the beginning year of the family planning program) shows that this program has not yet been very effective in preventing unwanted pregnancies in the lower socioeconomic groups.
