Emergency Preparedness Nursing Education: Learner and Faculty Perspectives  [PDF]
Geraldine Jody Macdonald
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2015.511108
Abstract: Over the past decade, entry-to-practice emergency preparedness competencies have been identified as an essential component of nursing education. In this paper the author reports upon a small Canadian study which explores the perspective of undergraduate learners and faculty members who participated in and/or facilitated an Emergency Preparedness Simulation (EPS) module during a primary health care praxis course. The central purpose of this study was to explore the related experiences of learners and faculty who participated in or facilitated an Emergency Preparedness Simulation (EPS) module academic year and their perspectives on the effectiveness of the simulation in preparing learners to respond to emergencies in the future. The EPS module included a seminar followed by a mass-casualty simulation experience. The mass-casualty simulation experience included a “Teddy Bear” triage and an “Explosion” triage. The constructivist data analysis identified four related patterns for both the learner and faculty participants: Strengths (S), Objections (O), Suggestions (S), and Feelings (!) [SOS!]. Three themes were identified in each pattern: relevance, design, and engagement. In comparing the learner and faculty perspectives, there is a clear congruence between the strengths identified, the objections identified, and the power of feelings for both learners and faculty who participate in the emergency preparedness scenarios. Learners and faculty had different suggestions. Learners suggested more time on developing skills, particularly around first aid of individual clients, and recommended all students begin with the “Teddy Bear” triage. Faculty suggested a re-thinking of the “Explosion” triage simulation to emphasize community based emergency preparedness and responsiveness. Such re-focusing would support the integration of key primary health care principles and values including equity, social justice, and social determinants of health. Learners and faculty valued the EPS module and recommended it continue to be a learning component of the primary health care course.
La isla del arte martinfierrista
Rogers,Geraldine;
Anclajes , 2010,
Abstract: this article cross-examines an aspect that characterizes the argentine literary avant-garde of 1920's: the attempt of making a great divide between art and other practices, an eff ort that had previously emerged in modernism by the turn of the century. in this paper, i will inquire about the elements which contributed to strengthen that division and, in that way, confirmed the existence of a literary space imagined as autonomous. th us, i will examine the nature of the contributions to a discourse about art, which in this context is understood as a self-ruling realm wholly devoted to formal interests. also, attention will be given to the delimitation of literary boundaries. consideration of the production of the contemporary spanish intellectual, josé ortega y gasset, will be crucial as his writings and lectures were very well-known at that time in argentina. it is well known ortega y gasset's strong influence over young argentine intellectuals in 1910's as well as his close friendship with victoria ocampo in the 1930's, but little is known about his role and influence on the argentine intellectual scenario in the 1920's.
Minería y metalurgia en la antigua gobernación del Tucumán (siglos XVI - XVII): Colonial Tucumán 16th and 17th Centuries
Gluzman,Geraldine;
Memoria americana , 2007,
Abstract: mining activity and metallurgical production were aspects that played important roles during the history of the native northwestern argentine population. on the one hand, during the prehispanic times, metal objects and metallurgical production had a high social value. on the other hand, profiting from mining was the primary activity during the processes of conquest and colonization in the new world during the 16th and 17th centuries. while it is known that the extraction of metal was one of the main elements of exploitation of indigenous labor force in alto peru, little attention has been paid to its analysis in the context of the native rebellions in the calchaqui valley before 1665. the objective is to study the conflicts in this area during the 16th and 17th centuries, focusing on mining and metallurgy in the antigua gobernación del tucumán.
ESTUDIOS TéCNICOS Y ESTILíSTICOS EN DISCOS METáLICOS HISPANO-INDíGENAS PROCEDENTES DEL PUKARá DE TILCARA (JUJUY, ARGENTINA)
Gluzman,Geraldine;
Boletín del Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino , 2010, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-68942010000100005
Abstract: we present technical and stylistic analyses of metallic disks from tilcara (province of jujuy) and assigned to the time of first contact with the spanish (ca. 1535-1650). we evaluate changes and continuities of style and to a lesser extent the disc manufacturing techniques from the late pre-hispanic period to the time of contact, taking into consideration the assimilation or negotiation of certain european values and the upholding of local cultural decisions. the spanish conquest was a lengthy process characterized by diverse forms of alliance, confrontation and contact between the european and native populations that brought the latter into a new social framework that altered the production, circulation and consumption of different types of goods and images.
REPRESENTACIóN HUMANA Y GéNERO EN PIEZAS DE METAL DEL NOROESTE ARGENTINO
Gluzman,Geraldine;
Boletín del Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino , 2010, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-68942010000200006
Abstract: in this work we analyze a set of late pre-hispanic bronze objects from the northwest of argentina (noa) from a gender studies lens. the representation of femalefigures in diverse objects has rarely been studied; most of the time these objects are merely described mthcmt investigating their relationship to the medium and with other representations. beginning with a reflection on the representation of women in metal objects, we explore the social implications of the differential presence of male and female images during the late pre-hispanic period in noa and propose that these reflect differentiated spheres of gender that are nonetheless interdependent and complementary.

"Er zog sich die 'neue Sprache' des 'Dritten Reiches' über wie ein Kleidungsstück": Communities of Practice and Performativity in National Socialist Discourse
Horan, Geraldine
Linguistik Online , 2007,
Abstract: This article aims to provide new insights into the characteristics and use of National Socialist discourse. It discusses the methodological problems underlying the analysis of the topic and shows how previous research has resulted in a falsely polarised portrayal of the discourse and its creators and recipients. Applying the concepts of the 'community of practice' and 'performativity', taken from the study of language and gender, the article argues that discourse was not created by National Socialist ideologues and imposed upon the population, but instead was co-created and shaped by members of formal and informal groupings (communities of practice). Participation in these communities of practice enabled or coerced individuals to 'perform' their National Socialist identity to varying degrees and resulted in a discourse which was stylistically and communicatively adaptable and malleable.
CALIDAD DE VIDA: PANORáMICA DE INVESTIGACIONES CLíNICAS
Geraldine Padilla
Revista Colombiana de Psicología , 2005,
Abstract: Este informe proporciona una panorámica de investigaciones clínicas pertenecientes a los estudios de la calidad de vida relacionada con la salud (CDVRS) incluyendo cuestiones sobre el significado de la calidad de vida en la atención sanitaria, campos y definiciones conceptuales, teorías, definiciones operacionales, la relevancia clínica de resultados estadísticos significativos, y la relación entre investigación clínica, práctica clínica, valoraciones de CDVRS y resultados de CDVRS. Se revisan campos no directamente pertenecientes a la CDVRS y definiciones generales así como los campos y definiciones de la CDVRS. Las teorías y modelos presentados distinguen entre predictores y resultados de calidad de vida. Se describen unas pocas medidas de calidad de vida útiles y bien conocidas, así como útiles depósitos de cuestionarios en páginas web. El concepto de diferencia mínima clínicamente importante proporciona una estrategia para determinar la significación clínica de la significación estadística y más allá de ella. Finalmente se ofrece un modelo basado en la relación cuidador-paciente para explicar la influencia de la investigación clínica en la conducta clínica y los resultados de CDVRS.
Patterns of Change: Transitions in Hmong Textile Language
Geraldine Craig
Hmong Studies Journal , 2010,
Abstract: In traditional Hmong life, women produced complex textiles as markers of clan identity and cultural values. Paj ntaub (flower cloth), created by embroidery, appliqué, reverse appliqué, and indigo batik (among the Blue or Green Hmong), were primary transmitters of Hmong culture from one generation to the next over centuries. Clothing, funeral and courtship cloths, baby carriers and hats were designed with traditionally geometric, abstract patterns Hmong could understand as a shared visual language within an oral culture.This photo essay introduces the author’s twenty-five year fascination with paj ntaub and documents a trip to Laos and northern Thailand in November/December 2009 to discover whether story cloths were being produced in Hmong villages in Laos or if story cloths remain a product of refugees only. The researcher also hoped tolearn whether traditional Hmong clothing is still produced and worn in the Laos, to observe how Hmong textiles are made and consumed for a tourist market, and to discover possible sources for the dramatic shift in paj ntaub visual language from symbolic abstraction to pictorial representation.
Minería y metalurgia en la antigua gobernación del Tucumán (siglos XVI - XVII): Colonial Tucumán 16th and 17th Centuries Minig and metallurgy
Geraldine Gluzman
Memoria Americana , 2007,
Abstract: La actividad minera y la producción metalúrgica constituyen aspectos que jugaron papeles cruciales a lo largo del devenir histórico de las poblaciones nativas del Noroeste argentino. Por un lado, durante los tiempos prehispánicos, los objetos de metal y la producción metalúrgica acreditaron una alta valorización social. Por otro, la obtención de ganancias a partir del aprovechamiento minero se desarrolló como la actividad primordial detrás de los procesos de conquista y colonización del Nuevo Mundo durante los siglos XVI y XVII. Mientras es conocido que la extracción de metal fue uno de los principales espacios de explotación de mano de obra indígena en el Alto Perú, poco interés tuvo su análisis en el contexto de las rebeliones indígenas ocurridas en el valle Calchaquí hasta 1665. El objetivo es abordar los conflictos desplegados en esta región durante los siglos XVI y XVII tomando como eje la minería y metalurgia en la Antigua Gobernación del Tucumán. Mining activity and metallurgical production were aspects that played important roles during the history of the native Northwestern Argentine population. On the one hand, during the prehispanic times, metal objects and metallurgical production had a high social value.
