From dropout to continuation in a higher education course
Teresa Albuquerque
Sísifo : Educational Sciences Journal , 2008,
Abstract: The study set out to ascertain how students, who begin a Higher Education course which is not their first option, adapt to the Faculty and why they do not drop out.Data was obtained by means of questionnaires and semi-structured interviews given to students who had entered Higher Education for the first time in 2004/2005.The findings indicated that students began to understand the profession, the type of population they are likely to work with and the type of work they may perform through the practical academic activities carried out during the course. Student involvement in the course and their pedagogical relationship were seen to be the most important factors in their decision to stay on the course.
Préparation des étudiants de l’Université de S o Paulo aux savoir-faire académiques fran ais : Les démarches pour la définition d’un programme de cours FOU

Synergies Monde , 2012,
Abstract: Les programmes d’échanges internationaux entre les universités fran aises et brésiliennes ont augmenté dans la dernière décennie, ce qui a fait augmenter aussi la mobilité étudiante vers la France. A l’Université de S o Paulo, 237 étudiants sont partis entre 2009/2010, d’après les données d’EduFrance, pour parfaire leur formation dans des universités fran aises. Il est important pour ces étudiants avant de partir, d’avoir une préparation pour une meilleure intégration à la nouvelle vie universitaire, car ils devront faire face à un système universitaire différent du leur y compris la compréhension orale des cours et la présentation des travaux écrits selon les règles rédactionnelles fran aises. Parmi la diversité d’étudiants de plusieurs filières disciplinaires dans l’Université de S o Paulo, nous avons choisi de centrer notre travail dans le domaine des sciences humaines, car c’est le public avec lequel nous travaillons déjà et donc le plus proche pour un accompagnement et des ajustements.
Youth and drugs: a legal overview
Paula Nunes Correia,Teresa Albuquerque e Sousa
Meritum : Revista de Direito da Universidade FUMEC , 2012,
Abstract: This article is generically dedicated to the legal effects of the acts practiced by young people, both minors and those of legal age, under the influence of drugs. In Part I, our attention is called to the legal-civil consequences of these acts. Thus, we shall begin with a brief preliminary note on the concept of civil law. Having noted this, we will examine the main topic to speak of the legally existing mechanisms (within the scope of civil law) to protect those people, and for this purpose, we distinguish between minors and adults (or equated to adults, which is the case of minors who are emancipated by marriage): the minor regime, in the first case, and possibly, the regime of incapacitation (an incapacity that is not generic and permanent), or even accidental incapacity (not permanent or transitory), caused by the consumption of alcohol or drugs, in the case of adulthood (or equated with adulthood). In the second part, initially, we give a general presentation of criminal law, with this part divided into two large sections: the sale and consumption of narcotics and the legal treatment given to minors. From a general standpoint, when an analysis of the agent’s guilt cannot be made, the law considers him to be unimputable. From an internal standpoint, we shall analyze the most relevant legal aspects of the Decree-Law referring to traffic and to drugs. One particular aspect of this regime lies in the fact that in Macau, drug consumption is considered to be a crime (article 28), unlike in European countries, like Portugal, since 2000. We shall also take into account other legislation in Macau in which drugs play a crucial role, as is the case of the misdemeanor established in article 68 of the Highway Code, which consists, among other items, in driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics (note that this Code was recently altered by the Highway Traffic Law, which entered into effect in October 2007). Next, we will analyze the regime applied to minors from a concrete perspective of criminal law.

Abstract: Este artigo é genericamente dedicado aos efeitos legais dos actos eventualmente praticados por jovens, tanto menores como já maiores, sob a influência de drogas. Na Parte I, nossa aten o vai para as conseqüências jurídico-civis de tais atos. Assim, come amos por uma breve nota preliminar sobre o conceito de direito civil. Feita tal anota o, entramos no assunto principal para falarmos dos mecanismos legalmente existentes (no ambito do direito civil) para proteger aquelas pessoas, para cuja finalidade distinguimos entre menores e maiores (ou equiparados a maiores, que é o caso dos menores emancipados pelo casamento): o regime da menoridade, na primeira situa o; eventualmente, o regime da inabilita o (uma incapacidade n o genérica e permanente), ou até o da incapacidade acidental (n o permanente ou transitória), causada pelo consumo de álcool ou drogas, em caso de maioridade (ou equiparado). Na segunda parte, inicialmente, fizemos uma presenta o geral do direito penal, estando essa parte do artigo dividida em duas grandes sec es: o tráfico e consumo de estupefacientes e o tratamento jurídico conferido aos menores. Do ponto de vista geral, quando n o pode ser feita uma análise da culpa do agente, a lei considerao como inimputável. Numa perspectiva interna, analisamos os aspectos jurídicos mais relevantes do decreto-lei referente ao tráfico e ao de droga. Uma particularidade desse regime reside no fato de em Macau o consumo de drogas estar criminalizado (artigo 28o), ao contrário do que sucede noutros países europeus, como é o caso de Portugal, desde 2000. Tomamos, igualmente, em linha de conta outras manifesta es legislativas em Macau onde a droga desempenha papel crucial, como o caso da contraven o prevista no artigo 68o do Código da Estrada, a qual consiste, dentre outros, na condu o sob o efeito de álcool ou estupefacientes (note-se que esse Código foi recentemente alterado pela Lei do Transito Rodoviário, a qual entrou em vigor em outubro de 2007). Seguidamente, analisamos o regime dos menores na concreta perspectiva do direito penal.

Abstract: This paper describes the current situation of animal tuberculosis in Portugal, reviewing the accomplishments and constraints of the 2001–2009 period. Notwithstanding the substantial progress achieved with the implementation of a comprehensive test and cull scheme, notification, postmortem inspection and surveillance at slaughterhouses, herd and animal prevalence have unexpectedly increased in 2009. In parallel, the recent awareness of tuberculosis in local free-ranging wildlife species causes concern regarding the final steps towards eradication, demanding new approaches to the existing disease control policies. 1. The National Policy on Bovine Tuberculosis Although herd prevalence of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) in Portugal (0.20 in 2010) remains markedly below the values of other European countries, it is presently the fourth cause for rejection of cattle meat [1]. Apart from being an economically detrimental disease affecting the productivity and international trade of livestock [2], tuberculosis (TB) may potentially have a severe impact on protected and/or endangered wild animal species and, as a zoonosis, on human public health [3]. Considerable progress in bTB control has been observed in Portugal after the implementation of a comprehensive eradication scheme in 1992 approved by the European Union (Council Decision 92/299/CE) based on the single intradermal comparative tuberculin test (SICTT) of cattle aged over 6 weeks and the slaughter of reactor animals. The interferon-γ test (Bovigam?) is used complementarily to SICTT in nonofficially TB free herds that hold animals with doubtful reactions to the intradermal test or in herds that consecutively hold positive SICTT animals (chronic bTB herd infection). In 2001, the program became cofinanced by the European Union (in the framework of Council Directive 64/432, as amended). The National Veterinary Authority (DGV), the National Reference Laboratory (NRL-INRB-LNIV), the Regional Veterinary Services Directorates, the regional laboratories from the Ministry of Agriculture, the municipal and private veterinarians from breeders organisations are the entities engaged in the bTB control program acting at the central, regional, or local level. The national program covers the whole territory of mainland Portugal, while a specific surveillance program is applied to the insular region of Azores, an important dairy region that has remained relatively untouched by the disease. 2. The Bovine Population in Portugal While in the past decade, the number of existing farms in Portugal has decreased to almost half, the

Abstract: we explored the relations between species traits (e.g. life span, body architecture, dispersal mode) and community traits (e.g. floristic richness, number of vegetation strata), and human-disturbance in mediterranean-type rivers. two hundred and five floristic surveys were undertaken in 100-metres river stretches of central and south portugal (western iberia). disturbance related variables were estimated for each site, using a five degree-scale, from no obvious alterations to highly impacted. we used taxonomical, functional and biological traits of the surveyed species, and community traits that might indicate the ecosystem's structure and naturalness. potential relationships between community and species traits and the disturbance variables were analysed using spearman's correlation. in general, the life span, the type of vegetative reproduction, the taxonomic class, and the woodiness were the most responsive species traits to disturbance. this study also showed that native and exotic components of the flora displayed opposing responses to disturbance, exception made to the river connectivity. the hydrological regime, the acidification/toxicity, the nutrient inputs, the river morphology, the global habitat quality and the land-use impact positively affected the exotic flora, and negatively the native flora. the results highlighted the potential of species and community traits for the bioassessment of river integrity.

Abstract: abstract context: an almost 50% prevalence of psychiatric disorders among cancer patients has prompted a series of studies on consultation-liaison psychiatry. nonetheless, there are few reports on the epidemiological factors involving comorbidity between cancer and psychiatric disorders. objective: to evaluate the epidemiological profile of cancer inpatients referred to the consultation-liaison psychiatric service in an oncology hospital during its first year of activity. type of study: descriptive study. setting: tertiary-care teaching hospital. participants: 319 patients referred 412 times to the consultation-liaison psychiatry service. procedures: from august 97 to july 98, an appraisal was made of data on all admissions registered at the hospital do cancer, and also all referrals registered at the consultation-liaison psychiatry service. main measurements: the demographics and patients' clinical data, the type and flow of the request, and the evaluation conducted by the service were analyzed and comparisons with the hospital data were made. the distribution of the number of referrals was used to construct a profile of patients who had repeatedly used the service. results: psychiatric diagnoses were found in 59% of the cases. forty-three percent of these required medication, 18.3% needed psychotherapy, 22.1% family intervention and 20.5% guidance from the staff. over 22.8% of the consultations were reevaluations, mainly involving younger male patients with worst prognoses. these patients required lengthier and more elaborate intervention, and had higher prevalence of depressive and behavioral disorders. conclusion: a younger and mainly male population of non-surgical oncological cases was referred to the consultation-liaison psychiatric service during its first year of activity. the psychiatric disorder prevalence was higher than expected, and consisted predominantly of mood disorders. we detected a priority group, namely the reevaluated patients, who deserved sp

Abstract: histoplasmosis is a fungal disease caused by inhalation of histoplasma capsulatum fungus. the disease does not normally affect immunocompetent individuals after a single, transient inhalation exposure. however, longer exposure may cause chronic or disseminated acute pulmonary infection. in immunocompromised patients, the infection is disseminated and severe. we report the case of a 13-year-old immunocompetent patient, presenting with fever, cough and dyspnea for one month. the chest x-ray and computed tomography scan revealed interstitial infiltrate and diffuse micronodules. the patient reported having had close and prolonged contact with birds. he was submitted to an open lung biopsy and the tissue culture was positive for histoplasma capsulatum sp. he was treated with amphotericin b for 28 days, followed by treatment with itraconazole for 6 months, and there was complete resolution of the disease.

Abstract: this is an essay about possible articulations between phenomenology, humanization and health promotion. phenomenology is the study of the description of human phenomena and their meanings. phenomenological research in the healthcare field has been strengthened during the last years, motivated by the need to apprehend the meanings of each subject inserted in the context of his/her cultural and historical wholeness. as a criticism to the biomedical model, it has encouraged the emergence of health phenomenology and the new production in health care. phenomenology is proposed here as an important methodological resource for the understanding of the humanization process in the healthcare and health management areas, due to the consonance with the perspective of integrality, autonomy and enlarged view of the health/illness process, by means of its presuppositions of phenomenon totality, intentional conscience and ethics.
