Effect of a System-Oriented Intervention on Compliance Problems in Schizophrenia: A Pragmatic Controlled Trial
Hanne Skarsholm,Henrik Stoevring,Bent Nielsen
Schizophrenia Research and Treatment , 2014, DOI: 10.1155/2014/789403
Abstract: Background. Numerous studies have been conducted with a view to developing strategies for improvement of medical compliance in patients with schizophrenia. All of the studies conducted so far have had an individual approach to compliance based on the assumption that noncompliance is determined individually due to inappropriate behavior in the patient. We conducted a pragmatic controlled trial with a system-oriented approach, to provide a new perspective on compliance and test the efficacy of a multifactorial intervention at the system level in a routine clinical setting, an approach that has not previously been used for the improvement of compliance. Methods. 30 patients were allocated to the system-oriented therapy and 40 patients were allocated to the reference intervention, which consisted of individually based compliance therapy. The follow-up period was six months. Primary endpoint was improvement in compliance, measured by improvement in a compliance scale specifically developed for the project. Results. When accounting for missing values with a multiple imputation approach, we found a tendency toward a difference in both the compliance scale and PANSS favoring the system-oriented therapy, although it did not reach statistical significance. A significant difference in incidence of adverse events and time to first readmission was found. Attrition rates were significantly higher in the reference group and nonsignificant among individuals with lower compliance, which may have diluted effect estimates. This was reflected by significant differences found in an analysis based on a last observation carried forward approach. Conclusion. This study suggests that compliance problems are better solved by a multifactorial intervention at the system level than at the individual level. 1. Background Schizophrenia is a severe mental illness [1], for which the cornerstone of treatment is antipsychotic medication [2]. Compliance with the medications is poor, as only approximately 50% of the prescribed medication is consumed [3], even though a compromised compliance has extensive clinical and economic consequences [4, 5]. Consequently, numerous studies have been conducted to develop strategies for the improvement of compliance in schizophrenia [6–18]. These studies have all had an individual approach to compliance based on the assumption that noncompliance is individually determined and due to inappropriate behavior of the patient. Alternatively noncompliance could be regarded as an “incident” caused by a “system failure” [19], that is, a product of failed
Distribution of modular symbols for compact surfaces
Morten Skarsholm Risager
Mathematics , 2003,
Abstract: We prove that the modular symbols appropriately normalized and ordered have an asymptotical normal distribution for all cocompact subgroups of SL_2(R). We introduce hyperbolic Eisenstein series in order to calculate the moments of the modular symbols.
Asymptotic densities of newforms
Morten Skarsholm Risager
Mathematics , 2002,
Abstract: We define the counting function for non-analytic (Maass) newforms of Hecke congruence groups_Gamma_0(M)_. We then calculate the three main terms of this counting function and give necessary and sufficient conditions on M for this counting function to have the same shape as if it were counting eigenvalues related to a cocompact group.
The distribution of values of the Poincare pairing for hyperbolic Riemann surfaces
Yiannis N. Petridis,Morten Skarsholm Risager
Mathematics , 2003,
Abstract: For a cocompact group of SL_2(R) we fix a non-zero harmonic 1-form \a. We normalize and order the values of the Poincare pairing according to the length of the corresponding closed geodesic l(gamma). We prove that these normalized values have a Gaussian distribution.
Modular symbols have a normal distribution
Yiannis N. Petridis,Morten Skarsholm Risager
Mathematics , 2003,
Abstract: We prove that the modular symbols appropriately normalized and ordered have a Gaussian distribution for all cofinite subgroups of SL_2(R). We use spectral deformations to study the poles and the residues of Eisenstein series twisted by power of modular symbols.
Patient participation in relation to life style changes—A literature review  [PDF]
Hanne Konradsen, Hanne Troest Nielsen, Marianne Thrane Larsen, Carrinna Hansen
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2012.22005
Abstract: The objective of this literature review was to identify and examine research where Patient Participation was used as a part of intervention targeting general life style among patients who comes in contact with a nurse. A literature search were conducted and included papers where judged by the researcher using recommendation from The Danish Centre for Clinical Guidelines. Analysis of the papers was carried out using Per?kyl? and Ruusuvauoris five components of Patient Participation as a theoretical template. It was concluded that the clinical effects of Patient Participation still needs to be clarified.
Neuropsychologic Testing in Chiasmal Patients Exhibiting Inattention in the Temporal Visual Space during Monocular Visual Testing  [PDF]
Hans C. Fledelius, Hanne Udesen
Open Journal of Ophthalmology (OJOph) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojoph.2017.71004
Abstract: Objective: By means of neuropsychologic tests, to further analyse a specific chiasmal monocular visual testing behaviour, here labelled temporal blocking because of the elective ignorance of optotypes on the temporal side of the chart. Often it is combined with impairment of reading and other cognitive impairments. Methods: Eighteen patients with lesions to the chiasm and some degree of temporal blocking aged 24 - 76 years underwent: 1) tests for visual neglect (Gothenburg test; behavioural inattention tests: star cancellation; line bisection); 2) visuo-perceptual tests; and 3) a test involving reading a crowded ten-letter and cipher bar. Results: The temporal blocking in two patients recovered after emergency neurosurgery and their results were normal when subsequently tested. Of the 16 patients with deficiencies, 14 had a poorer left eye (p < 0.01). Conclusions: The best neuropsychologic tests appeared to be those for visual neglect and the crowded bar test. In most cases, the right cerebral hemisphere’s lack of some crossed information from the left eye, usually needed for normative saccades and adjustment to visual space, may be a factor underlying the specific visual behaviour.
"Stakkars pappa" – hva kan far-barn-relasjonen si oss om barnerollen?
Kiil, Hanne
Barnboken : Tidskrift f?r Barnlitteraturforskning , 2011,
Abstract: “Poor daddy”–child's perspective and iconotext in three award-winning picture books. The Western dichotomy between children and adults characterize our opinion both on children and childhood. In this understanding framework the children are seen as something totally different from adults. Can artistic children's literature modify this habitual thinking about such hierarchical levels? The three books to examine closer have all won awards from Ministry of Culture as the best Norwegian picture book that year. Both Svein Nyhus: Pappa [Daddy] (1998), Hans Sande and Gry Moursund: Arkimedes og br dskiva [Archimedes and the Sandwich] (2000) and Stein Erik Lunde and yvind Torseter: Eg kan ikkje sove no [I Can't Sleep Now] (2008) are first-person narratives where the main character is a child. In such picture books visual and verbal point of view rarely are the same. The illustrations usually observe the central character from a distance and then allow the reader not only to adopt the narrator's point of view. What kind of ambiguities in the complex relationship between text and images give signals to the readers–and to the understanding of the narrator's position and perspective? What can this perspective and the iconotext in the three books tell us about today's children's role?
The quiet organization - why a common language does not always create a linguistic community
Hanne Tange
Language at Work : Bridging Theory and Practice , 2012,
Abstract: Imagine an office environment in an international company in Denmark. Around you employees are going about their daily routines. They write e-mails while chatting to their neighbours, exchange a few comments on their way to the photocopier, and gather in the break to discuss their boss, holiday plans or news on a joint project. Try then to imagine the same space, only without the noise: A work environment where employees perform their duties quietly and most of the chit-chat has disappeared. This is the situation in many organizations that have adopted English as their corporate language.
