Some institutions do not provide public access to all their materials because they deal with
specific procedures and situations that require a health professional’s assistance for correct
use. For example, instructions for post-surgery wound care might be given to a patient for
home use after a health professional guides them through the process. Institutions and
providers fear liability and potential misinterpretation of materials. Materials may have a
disclaimer saying this is not meant for self-diagnosis, please consult your doctor.

The aim of the present study was to explore the effects of health education program, related to
the identification of healthy and unhealthy nutritional habits, physical activities and hygiene in
children 4-5 years of age.
Method and material: 125 children participated in an education program for a period of two
months. For data collection, a specialized protocol was constructed with pictures in order to
evaluate the children’s knowledge about healthy behavior before and after the implementation
of the education program.

As the proportion of both minority populations and people aged 60 and older increases in the United States, and the
obesity epidemic continues, people with diabetes are becoming a larger part of the practices of family physicians and
other primary care clinicians. Health care professionals involved in new or expanding diabetes care practices can use
these guiding principles to ensure that they provide essential components of comprehensive diabetes care.

America’s dairy farmers participate in a national check-off program that provides
monies to promote the consumption of dairy foods. A large portion of these funds
is used to support nutrition research, communication, and education. Since 1915,
the National Dairy Council® has been committed to establishing programs and
developing educational materials based on current scientific research, as well as
providing sound scientific information in all of its communications.
This book is an update of the first edition of the Handbook of Dairy Foods and

The possible impact of nanomaterials on future products and services is enormous.
This has led to a tremendous expansion in research and development efforts related
to nanoscale materials and devices. It has also raised new questions as to how these
products will influence the environment, human health, business, education, and
other areas of society. As with any emerging field, a vast amount of disconnected
information is emerging, often spread across multiple disciplines.
It is imperative that the health care professional have knowledge of medical law, ethics, and
bioethics so that the client may be treated with understanding, sensitivity, and compassion.

The participants generally preferred to use and recommend materials that are in the public
domain and not subject to copyright, and most of the organizations they represent want their
information to reach the public unhindered. Materials produced by or funded by the Federal
and most state and local government generally can’t be copyrighted and are in the public
domain. Increasingly, such materials are posted on the Internet. In addition, a participant stated
that if an agency is producing something with outside support, they should be required to make
it freely available.
Written by several respected experts in the field, "Biomaterials in Orthopedics" discusses bioabsorbable biomaterials for bone repair, nondegradable materials in orthopaedics and delivery systems. The topics in this text include biocompatibility and the biomaterial/tissue interface; self-reinforced bioabsorbable devices and guided regeneration; bone substitutes, including porous ceramics; and non-corrosive coatings for implants.
Within the literature, the phenomenological studies by Ke and Carr-Chellman (2006)
and Liu (2008) provide by far the richest depictions of distance education students’
attitudes towards interacting with other students; however, by virtue of being a
qualitative methodology that focuses on a small number of subjects, phenomenological
studies are unable to reveal the proportion of students who hold different views and
preferences. By using a mixed methodology to initially survey a...
In addition, other emergency preparedness measures such as capacity building for national disaster
response teams (NDRT); standard operating procedures (SOP); volunteer management; and planning,
monitoring, evaluation, and reporting (PMER) capacity, which are addressed in country development
programmes, helped benefit the implementation of this DREF.
Healthy, active living benefits individuals and society in many ways. Positive
associations have been found between increased levels of physical activity, good
nutrition and physical fitness, and healthy body weight, psychological wellbeing,
musculoskeletal health, cognition and readiness to learn. A healthy, active population
enhances productivity, pro-social behaviours and personal satisfaction and has the
potential to reduce the burden of chronic disease.
