  • 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.

  • Although poor mental health has often been correlated with poor educational attainment and/or dropping out of education, there have been few longitudinal studies on this subject. In this paper, we investigate this issue using a recent longitudinal study of young people in England. England is a very interesting country to under- take such an investigation because both poor mental health and a high drop-out rate of young people are known to be important by international standards.

  • The physical, social and intellectual development of children from conception to the end of adolescence requires an environment that is both protected and protective of their health. A growing number of dis- eases in children are linked to unsafe environments. Prenatal and early life exposures, including diet, are associated with child health and human development and predispose to late adult effects. Thus, the INMA project is based on three main rationales. First, exposure to environmental pollutants through air, water and food is worldwide.

  • This tool will be most useful in the early phase of a terrorism event or major public health emergency but also has relevance for other public health events, such as disease outbreaks. It is not meant to supplant other works from either private or governmental sources but rather, to provide a different and complementary perspective. What is different here is that this guide assembles a wide variety of resources and filters them through the lens of public health action immediately following a major public health event.

  • The first report of a quantitative risk evaluation applied to health goes back to Laplace, in the late eighteenth century, which calculated the probability of death among people with and without vaccination for smallpox. With Pasteur's studies in the late nineteenth century, it was possible to use the tools of statistics to evaluate the factors related to communicable diseases, giving birth to the concept of epidemiological risk (Covello; Munpower, 1985, Czeresnia, 2004).

  • Aboriginal peoples have distinctive perspectives and understandings, deriving from their cultures and histories and embodied in Aboriginal languages. Research that has Aboriginal experience as its subject matter must reflect these perspectives and understandings. In the past, research concerning Aboriginal peoples has usually been initiated outside the Aboriginal community and carried out by non Aboriginal people. Aboriginal people have had almost no opportunity to correct misinformation or to challenge ethnocentric and racist interpretations.

  • The results of scenario S4 are presented in relative terms to scenario S3, i.e. the baseline scenario in year 2020.

  • The findings of these few studies suggest that reflective thinking may develop in association with certain interventions. It also appears that the development of reflective thinking is related to other aspects of learning and professional development. The methods employed were usually observational and analytical, and appropriate to the questions asked. However, only one of these studies had a comparison group, so the transferability of the interventions and results across contexts is unclear.

  • Unbundling the deposit component of an insurance contract leads to the separate recognition and measurement of the financial asset or financial liability arising under the deposit component, and the insurance component of the contract. If the deposit unbundling rules did not apply and the accounting policies of the insurer or reinsurer did not require all assets and liabilities under the contract to be recognised, liabilities might be incorrectly recognised as income and assets as expenses.

  • While the discussion of abnormal profit generation in inefficient markets can apply to any number of asset classes that trade in private markets, most of these markets suffer from a lack of data availability. The real estate market is an exception in this respect, and therefore provides an excellent laboratory for constructing a systematic view of whether and how informed institutional-level investors can generate abnormal profits through active trading in a somewhat inefficient market.

  • Nonetheless, data is data, and whilst the interpretation may be suspect (which can happen with even the best controlled studies), the data is the most valuable asset in a research paper. Of course insight that either consolidates or furthers our understanding is vital, but without data it can be nothing more than an armchair idea. Many journals require the highest levels of scientific rigour, which may make some research inaccessible - really a form of scientific censorship.
