RESUMO

Previous research established that children with poorer taxonomic knowledge in the food domain display increased levels of food rejection. However, the food domain heavily lends itself to script and thematic conceptual knowledge (e.g., pancakes at breakfast), to which young children already attend. This series of studies investigated the development of conceptual knowledge, specifically in the food domain, and the link with food rejection. Study 1 used a nonconflicting triad task testing children's knowledge of four subtypes of script and thematic associations (food-food pairs, food-utensil pairs, event scripts, and meal scripts) with children aged 3-6 years living in the United States (18 males and 14 females). Study 2 employed the same design along with a measure of food rejection in 3- to 6-year-olds living in France (67 males and 62 females). There was significant conceptual development in both groups, but thematic food concepts are acquired earlier than meal script concepts. Study 3 investigated the link between thematic and script cross-classification and food rejection in 39 females and 33 males living in France (4- to 7-year-olds). Results demonstrate that children as young as 3 years old are already attending to thematic and script structures to inform food-based decision making. Even more critically, Study 3 showed that increased food rejection tendencies are negatively related to script and thematic understanding in the food domain. Such seminal studies illustrate the importance of conceptual knowledge in children's interpretation and acceptance of food, highlighting promising avenues for knowledge-based interventions to foster dietary variety.

RESUMO

This study conducted randomized controlled trials to evaluate the effectiveness of an environmental education class and the impacts of nudges and boosts implemented in this program on high school students' basic knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors regarding environmental issues in Japan. This environmental education class consisted of a lecture on reducing the use of plastic products for energy conservation in daily life, a board game for learning how to reduce plastic waste, and a worksheet for reflection. Four types of worksheets were randomly distributed: nudges, in which students were asked to set a goal regarding their level of effort in not throwing away plastic products such as plastic bags, wet wipes, and plastic bottles; boosts, in which participants were asked to write an essay to help increase their empathy for the parties impacted by environmental issues; both nudges and boosts; and none (neither nudges nor boosts). After environmental education, an end-line survey was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of this class. This study found that the environmental education class significantly improved students' basic environmental knowledge and promoted their concerns about plastic waste. Although there was no evidence that nudges and boosts amplify the effects of the environmental education class on the students' knowledge, nudges were successful in making them more concerned about plastic waste. The results showed that students who received nudges or boosts were more likely to refuse free wet wipes offered at convenience stores but were not more likely to refuse plastic bottles. These results also indicated that interventions through environmental education can change students' pro-environmental behaviors only if the cost of behavioral change is low. The environmental education class not only increased students' environmental knowledge and attitudes, but the use of worksheets in administering nudges and boosts ensured the effectiveness of environmental education.

RESUMO

Los ensayos y escritos relacionados con el cuidado del paciente renal a través de los años se han enfocado a la calidad de vida, estilos de afrontamiento, satisfacción o percepciones que experimentan los pacientes durante su enfermedad. El presente articulo pretende reconocer que el cuidado de enfermería para con el paciente renal es un aspecto fundamental que proporciona al profesional la comprensión de la realidad del paciente y contribuye de manera positiva a comprender la realidad de enfermería como disciplina; enmarcadas en algunas posiciones que permiten garantizar su significado. Estas posiciones son la ética, la ontología y la epistemología. La ética se logra cuando el profesional de enfermería consigue proteger y respetar la dignidad humana del paciente renal que reciben atención de salud, la ontología se ocupa de reflexionar acerca de las concepciones de la realidad y sus relaciones centrando su finalidad en la búsqueda de la salud, del bienestar, la independencia y la trascendencia del paciente renal y la epistemología consiste en mostrar, de manera holística, la evolución del conocimiento de la enfermería para brindar un cuidado de excelencia al paciente renal.


Abstract Over the years, essays and writings related to kidney patient care have focused on quality of life, coping styles, satisfaction, or perceptions experienced by patients during their illness. This article aims to recognize that nursing care for kidney patients is a fundamental aspect that provides the professional with an understanding of the patient's reality and contributes positively to understanding the reality of nursing as a discipline framed in some positions that guarantee their meaning. These positions are ethics, ontology, and epistemology. Ethics is achieved when the nursing professional manages to protect and respect the human dignity of kidney patients who receive health care. Ontology deals with reflecting on the conceptions of reality and their relationships, focusing its purpose on the search for health, well-being, independence, and transcendence of kidney patients. And epistemology consists of showing, in a holistic way, the evolution of nursing knowledge to provide excellent care to kidney patients.

RESUMO

Parents are responsible for their children's health care, and their oral health-related knowledge, attitude, and habits can affect their children's oral health. Aim: The objective of this study was to evaluate parents' knowledge, attitudes, and practices regarding their children's oral health. Methods: In this study, a sample of 398 parents of 4- to 6-year-old children completed a self-designed questionnaire. The parents' oral health-related knowledge, attitudes, and practices were assessed. Children's oral health was evaluated using decayed, missing, and filled tooth index (dmft). Data were analyzed using the SPSS version 23.0 with a p < 0.05 as statistically significant. Categorical data were reported as frequency (%), and continuous data were reported as mean ± SD. Moreover, Spearman's correlation, multiple regression, Mann-Whitney test, Kruskal Wallis test, and Kolmogorov-Smirnov test were used. Results: Most of the parents had a satisfactory level of knowledge and positive attitudes regarding their children's oral health. The knowledge and attitude scores were higher among parents with higher education (p<0.001), and the knowledge score was higher among mothers (p=0.004). Also, the attitude score was correlated with the number of decayed, missed, and filled teeth of children (p=0.01, p=0.04, and p=0.007, respectively). However, there was no significant relationship between dmft and the parents' knowledge, attitudes, and practices using multiple regression. The mean dmft of children was 6.86 ± 3.56, and most of the parents had poor oral health-related practices. Conclusion: The parents' level of knowledge and attitudes were satisfactory, but they had poor oral health practices. Moreover, there was no significant relationship between children's oral health and their parents' level of knowledge, attitudes, and practices. Educating programs and strategies are needed to enhance parents' oral health-related attitudes and knowledge and, more importantly, change their oral health practices

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: to analyze the power relations and knowledge among health teams that permeate the Kangaroo Mother Care implementation and dissemination in the state of Santa Catarina. METHOD: socio-historical qualitative research, carried out in the state of Santa Catarina, from January to November 2019, based on interviews with 12 health professionals. Data were analyzed in the light of Foucault's genealogical proposal, with the help of Atlas.ti Cloud®. RESULTS: the relationships of neonatal team members strengthened Kangaroo Mother Care actions in the state, articulating services and favoring health professionals' autonomy. However, Kangaroo nurses stand out in this process, and the hegemonic medical discourse often still represses the other professional categories. CONCLUSION: professionals develop strategies to negotiate changes in the practice of care, moving between the plots of power and knowledge, sometimes exercising it, sometimes being passive to it.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Obtaining a tenure track faculty position (TTFP) after postdoctoral appointment (PDA) completion is considered an indicator of successful transition to independence (TTI). Whether cross-institutional mobility (CIM)-moving to a different institution from that of the PDA-contributes to TTI is unclear, as data evaluating retention and mobility is lacking. We tested the hypothesis that, for postdocs (PDs) at R1 institutions, CIM is a significant predictor of successful TTI defined as TTFP-status 3 years post-PDA. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Using University of Pittsburgh data for health sciences PDs we tested the association of CIM at PDA completion (moved to a different institution (CIM = 1) or retained at Pitt (CIM = 0)) with TTFP-status 3 years post-PDA (TTFP, non-TTFP, or left faculty position) using multinomial logistic regression models. RESULTS: Among all 622 Pitt PDs, 3-year retention in a faculty position at Pitt was 21%, while 14% had a faculty position outside of Pitt. Among the analytic sample of PDs with an academic career outcome during the study period (N = 238; 50% women, 8% underrepresented minorities (URM)), at baseline PDA completion 39% moved to a different institution (CIM = 1), and 61% remained at Pitt (CIM = 0) in any job type. Those with CIM = 1 had greater odds of having a TTFP at follow-up than those with CIM = 0 [adjusted OR (95% CI): 4.4 (2.1, 9.2)]. DISCUSSION: One fifth of Pitt PDs were retained by Pitt as faculty. While Pitt PDs were equally likely to get a faculty position whether they were retained at Pitt or left, those who left had greater odds of obtaining a TTFP. Future work with longer follow-up times, expanded markers of TTI, and samples from other R1 institutions is needed to better understand the reason for these results. This knowledge can lead to better support for the next generation of PDs as they successfully transition to faculty.

RESUMO

We argue for a relevance-guided learning mechanism to account for both innovative reproduction and faithful imitation by focusing on the role of communication in knowledge transmission. Unlike bifocal stance theory, this mechanism does not require a strict divide between instrumental and ritual-like actions, and the goals they respectively fulfill (material vs. social/affiliative), to account for flexibility in action interpretation and reproduction.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Since its introduction to the Anglophone Caribbean in 1793, breadfruit has had a diverse history in the region, and there is a considerable repository of traditional knowledge about the crop, that is undocumented. Consequently, it remains underutilized as a food source, despite recognition of its potential to contribute to food and nutrition security. Understanding the folk taxonomy and traditional knowledge associated with its diversity and uses is a prerequisite to develop programs for its commercial production and utilization. METHOD: This study was conducted among 170 respondents who were selected across four Anglophone Caribbean countries and provided information on the ethnobotany and traditional knowledge associated with breadfruit biodiversity, including systems of naming, identification and classification of breadfruit cultivars or types. RESULTS: Breadfruit has socio-cultural and economic value and is produced for both home use and sale by most respondents (68%). The genetic diversity of breadfruit managed by the respondents is also important, as a total of 51 vernacular names were identified, with nine of those names recorded for the first time in this study. Breadfruit types were identified by morphological and agronomical characteristics, with other important traits relating to use and cooking quality. Classification of breadfruit cultivars or types was based on eating-quality, most suitable methods of preparation and ease of cooking. CONCLUSION: The ethnobotanical and traditional knowledge obtained from this study may be useful in assessing the genetic diversity of breadfruit and guiding future community-based conservation and classification studies of this important crop resource in the Caribbean. This is crucial to support the commercialization of breadfruit to improve its contribution to food and nutrition security.

RESUMO

Achieving energy sovereignty is increasingly gaining prominence as a goal in energy politics. The aim of this paper is to provide a conceptual analysis of this principle from an ethics and social justice perspective. We rely on the literature on food sovereignty to identify through a comparative analysis the elements energy sovereignty will most likely demand and thereafter distinguish the unique constituencies of the energy sector. The idea of energy sovereignty embraces a series of values, among which we identified: (i) accessibility, to allow access to everyone, (ii) empowerment and recognition, to develop and sustain capabilities to collaboratively produce solution-oriented energy system knowledge and effectively participate in governance, (iii) stewardship and sustainability, to be able to design and manage decentralised renewable systems in view of protecting the environment, (iv) self-sufficiency, to reduce the negative shocks of exploitative business practises, (v) resilience, to maintain production capacities while withstanding socioeconomic, political, environmental and climatic shocks, (vi) peace, to establish production systems that do not involve hostile relations, (vii) transparency and self-determination, to establish democratic decision-making mechanisms that give a voice to previously underrepresented groups and limit corporate takeover (viii) gender-justice, by acknowledging the contributions of women and eliminate barriers to their empowerment. With a conceptual framework of energy sovereignty, we present a rationale that draws on the key values to be considered when formulating policy solutions for the energy sector.

RESUMO

Traveling has become an increasingly important lifestyle for the elderly to realize active aging. The elderly are more inclined to pay attention to wellbeing-related products whilst on vacations, representing a market opportunity for providers of tourism health services. This study conducted an experiment to explore how message framing affects intentions to purchase health services in elderly tourists over the age of 59 years. A total of 216 elderly tourists from Bama, a famous wellness tourism destination in China, were recruited as participants for a single-factor (message framing: positive versus negative) experiment. Our results indicate the following: (1) message framing has a significant impact on elderly tourists' intentions to purchase health services. Compared with messages that are negatively framed, positive messages are more persuasive. (2) Perceived benefits mediate the above relationship. (3) Perceived susceptibility moderates the impact of message framing around perceived benefits, as well as the indirect effect of perceived benefits on purchase intention. Theoretically, this paper clarifies the mechanism and conditions of message framing in relation to its effects on consumer intentions, enriching knowledge about the intersection between tourism and health consumption. This paper also provides guidance for providers of health tourism who are seeking to capture the market of elderly tourists.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION AND AIMS: Clinicians understanding and applying the skills of knowledge translation is essential for the delivery of high value, effective health care. However, many clinicians lack confidence and capacity to undertake knowledge translation. Our team recently piloted a group telementoring knowledge translation support service (KTSS) with allied health professionals (AHPs) undertaking knowledge translation in their practice. This article aims to investigate barriers and enablers to participants' participation and identify evidence-based strategies to improve future delivery of the initiative. METHODS: The evaluation utilized semistructured interviews with participants who completed the first KTSS. Interview transcripts were analysed to identify key themes and subthemes. Subthemes were also mapped to an implementation science framework and model (theoretical domains framework and behaviour change wheel) to guide evidence-based identification of effective strategies to address, overcome, or enhance issues raised. RESULTS: Six of the nine participants invited were interviewed. Five barriers and six enablers of KTSS participation, and five improvement ideas for a future KTSS program, were suggested. Barriers included knowledge gaps, competing time demands, and organizational expectations. Enablers included organizational support, motivation and preparation, and local champions. Additional strategies included additional preparation, an initial rapport building session, and strategies to meet the emotional needs of the participants. These were reinforced by the framework mapping results, with the further addition of a peer modelling strategy. CONCLUSION: Through a qualitative methodology we have examined and identified the experiences of AHPs who have participated in a knowledge translation telementoring program with clear strategies to enhance further programs offered.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Traditional mycological knowledge (TMK) is complex, not distributed equally among the entire population, and constantly adapting to current social situations. There are sociocultural factors that could influence the fact that some people retain a greater wealth of knowledge, for instance, cultural affiliation, migration, occupation, level of schooling, and person's age. METHODS: We analyze the distribution of the TMK based on sociocultural variables and 12 indicators to quantify the TMK based on a literature review. We chose two sites where there was a Wixarika and Mestizo population with records of use and consumption of wild mushrooms. In each site, 150 semi-structured interviews were conducted. The format of the semi-structured interviews was made up of sociocultural questions plus 12 questions corresponding to each of the indicators. With the data obtained, we performed linear regression tests and principal components analysis (PCA); furthermore, the significance of the groupings obtained by PCA was tested with a discriminant function analysis. RESULTS: We find that TMK was determined by the cultural group to which a person belongs. Contrary to what was expected, age and formal schooling did not influence people's level of knowledge. Likewise, migration and occupation were not determining factors either, although in some specific cases they did influence the differences in knowledge about mushrooms between people. The indicators that most helped to differentiate between the Wixarika people, and the Mestizos were knowledge of the nutritional contribution, propagation methods, and knowledge about toxic mushrooms. CONCLUSIONS: In general, sociocultural differences did not affect the transmission of the TMK due to the valorization of this knowledge among the young generations and the maintenance of the use of wild resources. Specifically, the Wixaritari had and preserved a greater TMK thanks to their pride in their cultural identity, which had allowed them to adapt to modernity while preserving their traditions and knowledge. On the other hand, the Mestizos increasingly disused wild resources due to urbanization. The indicators proposed here provided a good tool to quantify TMK; however, to replicate the study in other sites it is necessary to adapt the indicators to the context of the place.

RESUMO

We assume "Imaginary worlds" to be unreal and unfamiliar: high fantasy. I argue they are real and familiar to authors because they comprise memory elements, which blend experience, knowledge, beliefs and pre-occupations. These "bits and pieces" from memories can generate a world, which readers experience as pure imagination. I illustrate using J.M. Barrie's "Never Land" and J.R.R. Tolkien's "Middle-Earth."

RESUMO

Target discovery and identification processes are driven by the increasing amount of biomedical data. The vast numbers of unstructured texts of biomedical publications provide a rich source of knowledge for drug target discovery research and demand the development of specific algorithms or tools to facilitate finding disease genes and proteins. Text mining is a method that can automatically mine helpful information related to drug target discovery from massive biomedical literature. However, there is a substantial lag between biomedical publications and the subsequent abstraction of information extracted by text mining to databases. The knowledge graph is introduced to integrate heterogeneous biomedical data. Here, we describe e-TSN (Target significance and novelty explorer, http://www.lilab-ecust.cn/etsn/), a knowledge visualization web server integrating the largest database of associations between targets and diseases from the full scientific literature by constructing significance and novelty scoring methods based on bibliometric statistics. The platform aims to visualize target-disease knowledge graphs to assist in prioritizing candidate disease-related proteins. Approved drugs and associated bioactivities for each interested target are also provided to facilitate the visualization of drug-target relationships. In summary, e-TSN is a fast and customizable visualization resource for investigating and analyzing the intricate target-disease networks, which could help researchers understand the mechanisms underlying complex disease phenotypes and improve the drug discovery and development efficiency, especially for the unexpected outbreak of infectious disease pandemics like COVID-19.

RESUMO

Unusual angiomatous or lymphangiomatous vascular malformations are rarely seen. One of them is lymphangioma (LA), which is a rare benign lymphovascular abnormality. LA is usually seen in the types of circumscriptum (or capillary), cavernous and cystic. Here, we report a unique case of LA with a patchy appearance. The patient presented due to unusual symptoms and eccentric clinical manifestation of the lesion. Here, we present a new lymphatic entity which was diagnosed as LA with its clinical, radiological and pathological findings. Written informed consent of the patient was obtained for this report. To the best of our knowledge this macular form of cutaneous LA has not been previously reported in literature. Macular LA should be kept in mind when faced with a colored long-term macular lesion on the skin.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: New digital health technologies are considered one solution to challenges in the health sector, which include rising numbers of chronic diseases and increased health spending. As digitalization in health care is still in its infancy, there are many unanswered questions about the impact of digital health on management. OBJECTIVE: This paper assesses the current state of knowledge in the field of digital health from a management perspective. It highlights research gaps within this field to determine future research opportunities. METHODS: A systematic review of digital health literature was conducted using 3 databases. The chosen articles (N=38) were classified according to a taxonomy developed for the purpose, and research gaps were identified based on the topic areas discussed. RESULTS: The literature review revealed a slight prevalence of practical (n=21, 55%) over theoretical (n=17, 45%) approaches. Most of the papers (n=23, 61%) deal with information technology (IT) and are, therefore, focused more on technology and less on management. The research question in most of the papers (n=31, 82%) deals with the creation of concepts, and very few (n=4, 11%) evaluate or even question existing solutions. Most consider the main reason for digitalization to be the optimization of operational processes (n=26, 68%), and 42% (n=16) deal with new business models. The topic area discussed most frequently was found to be eHealth (n=30, 79%). By contrast, the field of tech health with topics such as sensors receives the least attention (n=3, 8%), despite its significant potential for health care processes and strategy. CONCLUSIONS: Three main research propositions were identified. First, research into digital health innovation should not focus solely on the technology aspects but also on its implications for strategic and operational management. Second, the research community should target other domains besides eHealth. Third, we observed a lack of quantitative research on the real impact of digital health on organizations and their management. More quantitative evidence is required regarding the expected outcome and impact of the implementation of digital health solutions into our health care organizations.
