Procesos de incorporación de la perspectiva de los usuarios al desarrollo de guías de práctica clínica - revisión de literatura
Mosquera,Paola Andrea; Reveiz,Ludovic; Cattivera,Claudia; Guevara,Oscar Alexander;
Revista Gerencia y Políticas de Salud , 2011,
Abstract: in order to identify methodologies for effective identification and incorporation of the user considerations and perspective to the development of clinical practice guidelines, a systematic review of the literature was conducted. a total of 729 articles were identified from the initial search of these, 18 met the criteria and were included in the review. the items were valued according to methodological quality and extracted relevant information from them. no methodological items were found that described or evaluated a specific methodology that incorporates considerations of the patients in the development of gpc. the techniques used for these processes were the formal ones such as delphi, focus groups, stakeholder analysis, surveys, workshops and preference scales. the reported experiences agree on the need to link patients during the stages of prioritization and approval of the recommendations.
Equidad en el desarrollo de guías de práctica clínica
Acosta,Naydú; Pollard,Jennifer; Mosquera,Paola; Reveiz,Ludovic;
Revista de Salud Pública , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0124-00642011000200014
Abstract: this systematic literature review sought to identify methodologies and technical strategies emphasising healthcare services and outcomes when incorporating the concept of equity into clinical practice guidelines (cpg). 940 references were identified, of which 20 fulfilling the inclusion criteria were selected. while no reports were found describing or evaluating an explicit methodology for incorporating considerations of equity into cpg, some studies revealed related strategies or processes, summarised as follows: 1. target population involvement during all phases of designing, implementing and evaluating cpg; 2. "cultural capacity" seen as being necessary in cpgs' "cultural translation" for interventions to have less disparity regarding their application and results; 3. considering psycho-social factors which could affect implementing cpg, and; 4. considering system inequities so that any health intervention would also confront risks and obstacles to health care due to socioeconomic status. it was concluded that cpgs could be a potential route for promoting more equitable healthcare effects by standardising health interventions if, by incorporating some of the processes described above, they actively seek to avoid unjust differences in access to and/or the quality of the interventions that they prescribe.
Spinocerebellar Ataxia with Oculomotor Apraxia and Severe Corneal Astigmatism  [PDF]
Paola Michieletto, Andrea Martinuzzi, Stefano Pensiero
Open Journal of Ophthalmology (OJOph) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojoph.2013.32009

Purpose: To disclose the association between spinocerebellar ataxia with oculomotor apraxia and high grade (7 diopters) congenital astigmatism. Methods: Single observational case report. A 39-year-old patient affected by spinocerebellar ataxia from the age of 20 was submitted to genetic and ophthalmic investigations to reach a diagnosis. Results: Genetic testing did not lead to a sure diagnosis, while clinical and instrumental ophthalmic examinations pointed out an oculomotor apraxia and a congenital severe astigmatism. Conclusion: To conclude the eye movement recording permitted to identify an oculomotor apraxia in this case of spinocerebellar ataxia. This is the first report of severe astigmatism in cases of ataxia with oculomotor apraxia.

Computer Language Effciency via Data Envelopment Analysis
Andrea Ellero,Paola Pellegrini
Advances in Operations Research , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/154516
Abstract: The selection of the computer language to adopt is usually driven by intuition and expertise, since it is very diffcult to compare languages taking into account all their characteristics. In this paper, we analyze the effciency of programming languages through Data Envelopment Analysis. We collected the input data from The Computer Language Benchmarks Game: we consider a large set of languages in terms of computational time, memory usage, and source code size. Various benchmark problems are tackled. We analyze the results first of all considering programming languages individually. Then, we evaluate families of them sharing some characteristics, for example, being compiled or interpreted. 1. Introduction Which programming language is the best one? In general, the answer could be “no guess,’’ of course. But if we add a precise criterion, asking, for example, for a program with low memory consumption, one would probably not choose Java. In this paper, we propose a way for understanding how to widen this answer, suggesting which programming languages should not be chosen after considering a set of different criteria as a whole. Several languages are available to researchers and practitioners, with different syntax and semantics. As common practice, an implementer chooses the programming language to use according to his feeling and knowledge. In fact, comparing the performance of the various languages is not straightforward. Only few studies deal with such an evaluation [1–5]. Nonetheless, getting a deeper understanding of the language efficiency may be of great help for exploiting the available resources. Two problems are often connected to these analysis. On the one hand, the ability of who writes the code may bias the results. On the other hand, several criteria must be considered in the evaluation, and their relevance cannot be easily defined a priori. The first problem can be in some part overcome by considering the data provided by The Computer Language Benchmarks Game (CLBG). They are available on the website http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/gp4/. The CLBG collects source codes produced by several programmers. Implementers volunteer their contributions. They are allowed to choose the language to use and the problem to tackle in a set of about twenty benchmarks. For each of these benchmarks, different workloads are tested. The collected programs are written in about forty very popular programming languages. The benchmark problems do not require the investigation of a solution space for finding an optimum. As an example, one of these problems requires
Refugiados y desplazados forzados: Categorías de la migración forzada creadas como medidas de contención a las migraciones no deseadas
Posada,Paola Andrea;
Estudios Políticos , 2009,
Abstract: this article aims to present the way in which the legal categories of "refugees" and "displaced persons" arise from the interest of the international community to control unwanted migration. in order to do so, an analytical argument is used based on the global system of migration proposed by vidal (2005), in which the categories of forced migration, refugee and forced displacement are related. the article also tries to show that the category of refugee impacts in a restrictive way the interests of forced migrants, including displaced persons.
Manejo anestésico del paciente obeso
Villamil Cendales,Andrea Paola;
Revista Colombiana de Anestesiología , 2006,
Abstract: obesity has increased in the last times, from 12% to 19% (1). that is why, the anesthesiologist is faced more frequently with obese patients, not only for weight reduction procedures, but also for any other interventions. for this reason is very important to be able to clearly understand the physiological changes, and the effects of obesity in the anesthetic management. the obese patient is defined as such with a bmi (body mass index), higher than 30 morbil obesity bmi > 40 (2). the mortaly rate of the patient with morbid obesity is 12 times higher in people with ages between 25 and 34 years old, and six times higher in people with ages between 35 and 44 years of age. this risk increases with the presence of hypertension, diabetes, respiratory failure, arthritis, gastric reflux, alveolar hypoventilation syndrome, pulmonary htpertension, left ventricular failure and some types of cancer.
Cambios estructurales en series de tiempo: una revisión del estado del arte
Sánchez,Paola Andrea;
Revista Ingenierías Universidad de Medellín , 2008,
Abstract: recent developments in time series analysis reflect a growing need for developing models which allow capturing their different characteristics. such is the case of structural changes, in which, very frequently, its presence affects the analysis of the series in a very important way. different approaches to the modeling problem of structural changes have been made, which cover the calculation of known or unknown points, the representation of simple or multiple the influence of stationary or not immigrants, among others. the objective of this paper is to present recent developments in the field of structural changes modeling and to show how they affect identification of the model, its future and stability tests. if the development in this field had been growing, there are still in literature some spaces open to research, mainly related one with non-linear time series.
