Discharge planning: Narrated by nursing staff in primary healthcare and their concerns about using video conferencing in the planning session – An interview study
Malin Hofflander,Lina Nilsson,Sara Eriksén,Christel Borg
Journal of Nursing Education and Practice , 2013, DOI: 10.5430/jnep.v3n1p88
Abstract: Background/Objective: This paper sets out to describe experience-based reflections on discharge planning as narrated by nursing staff in primary healthcare, along with their concerns about how the introduction of video conferencing might influence the discharge planning situation. Methods: Interviews were conducted with nursing staff working at a primary healthcare centre in South East Sweden. Each interview took place was conducted on a one-to-one basis in dialogue form, using open questions and supported by an interview guide. It was then analysed using a phenomenological hermeneutic method. Participants were eligible for the study if they had given their informed consent and if they worked with discharge planning and home-based healthcare provision. In total, 10 of the 30 persons working at the primary healthcare centre participated in the study. Results: It was found that nursing staff in primary healthcare regarded the planning session as stressful, time-consuming and characterised by a lack of respect between nursing staff at the hospital and nursing staff in primary healthcare. They also described uncertainty and hesitation about using video conferences where patients might probably be the losers and nursing staff the winners. Conclusions: It is suggested that there is a need for improvement in communication and understanding between nursing staff at the hospital and nursing staff in primary healthcare in order to develop discharge planning. There is also a need for the nursing staff in primary healthcare to obtain more information about how Information Technology (IT) solutions could support their work and help them to find ways to collaborate.
Sprouting Wings in the Hyper-Colonial: High-Octane Desire and Youth-Targeted Market Predation  [PDF]
Mark B. Borg
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2010.14040
Abstract: In this article, the author utilizes a novel action research approach to developing an interpretation of a colonial discourse that reproduces an otherness that is consistent with traditional views of history and ideology. Through this unique educational—for both author and client—approach, further analysis reveals a colonial discourse that has become unhinged from its historical roots and taken flight into supermolecular space where its origins and impact have been thoroughly dissociated from its cultural impact. When our identities are thoroughly absorbed into and taken over by consumer products, we enter a corporately induced, mass-media augmented hyper-colonial in which our minds, bodies, and senses of self become defined by those products. A primary research question is: how can we intervene in colonialism when the colonized is an inferior/lacking version of our own self ? The ways in which this hyper-colonial state captures and makes use of desire and is then marked—marketed—by/through a society-level drive is explored throughout this article. The author “takes a walk”—that is, he uses a week-long organizational consultation that was conducted for a marketing research organization to analyze the ways that the dynamics of a hyper-colonialized consumer culture were at play in the consultee’s marketing strategies that target American youth.
Disability, Social Policy and the Burden of Disease: Creating an “Assertive” Community Mental Health System in New York  [PDF]
Mark B. Borg, Jr.
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2010.12018
Abstract: One conclusion of the decade-long epidemiological Global Burden of Disease Project is that five of the top 10 disease “burdens” the world will face by 2020 will be related to mental disabilities. Therefore, developing social policy and community responses to the ways that people with mental disabilities are treated is becoming an important focus for community practitioners, political activists and legislators. The author explores some of the dynamics of our culture’s approach to dealing with difference, especially when manifested in disenfranchized individuals. He discusses a community development project created by a New York City advocacy and social policy organization following the 1999 murder of a woman by an individual whose mental health disability was never treated. Parallels are drawn between the civil rights and community mental health movements, which created a precedent for the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act. Also examined are the ways in which community mental health systems manifest social policy that alternately resists, repeats and colludes with power operations. The unexamined assumptions that drive this dynamic are examined as ableism or disability oppression.
Case report: Effect of immunoglobulin on pain in Post-Polio Syndrome—Three case reports  [PDF]
Lars Werhagen, Kristian Borg
Pain Studies and Treatment (PST) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/pst.2013.11001
Abstract: Study design: Case reports. Setting: University hospital setting. Objective: To analyze the effect of intravenous immunoglobulin on neuropathic and nociceptive pain in three patients with Post-Polio Syndrome (PPS). Materials and Methods: Three patients with PPS and pain who received treatment with 90 g IvIg are described. Results: Before treatment one of the patients had pure neuropathic pain and the other two had a combination of neuropathic and nociceptive pain. There was no effect on pain in the patient with pure neuropathic pain and only effect on the nociceptive pain in the patients with a combination of neuropathic and nociceptive pain. Discussion: Pain is one of the most common symptoms in PPS. Previous studies have shown an effect on pain in PPS patients receiving IvIg. The results of the present study point to that the effect on pain is limited to nociceptive pain and that there is no effect on neuropathic pain which leads to increased knowledge of characterization of responders of IvIg treatment. Conclusion: IvIg treatment treatmentreduces nociceptive but not neuropathic pain in PPS patients.
Regulatory Privacy Protection for Biomedical Cloud Computing  [PDF]
Y. Tony Yang, Kari Borg
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2012.34020
Abstract: This article provides background information on biomedical cloud computing. It examines the privacy concerns that arise from the use of biomedical cloud computing services and then surveys the current state of regulatory privacy safeguards for patients and consumers of these services both in the U.S and abroad. Finally, it identifies opportunities for legal and technological mechanisms to be implemented or reinforced so that patients and consumers are not forced to lose control of their information when they use biomedical cloud computing services.

Analyses de discours et pensée didacticienne Les lieux féconds d’une rencontre
Serge Borg
Synergies Monde , 2013,
Abstract: Les apports de l’analyse de discours à l’enseignement des langues constituent des lieux féconds d’une rencontre que nous nous proposons d’explorer à travers l’étude d’une notion-clé du domaine, celle de progression en didactique des langues. De la poiésis à l’épistémé jusqu’à la doxa, en passant par le dialogisme et l’intertextualité, nous montrerons combien les concepts de variation, d’altération et de reformulation promus par Jean Peytard, n’ont pas peu contribué à identifier la pensée didacticienne, en lui donnant toute sa légitimité scientifique au sein des sciences du langage. Analyse de discours et de contenu conduisent ainsi à une modélisation du domaine et clarifient son identité épistémologique.

This paper draws on a qualitative study of second language (L2) classrooms to provide a comparative analysis of five teachers’ practices in teaching grammar and of the rationales underlying the teachers’ instructional decisions during such work. The database for the study consisted of 75 hours of classroom observation and 15 hours of interviews. The analysis presented here highlights the range of decisions teachers are faced with in L2 grammar teaching and sheds light on the personal understandings of L2 learning and teaching which influence how teachers make these decisions.
