Depression is a very common, severe, socio-economically highly relevant disorder and the main cause for approximately 10,000 suicides in Germany annually. There is capital room for improvement and optimization of the care for depressed patients, as effective and evidence-based treatment options are available. However, they are only used optimally by a minority of the people affected due to huge diagnostic and therapeutic deficits. The "Compentence Network on Depression and Suicidality" provided several evidence-based concepts to improve care for patients affected by depression and to prevent suicidal behaviour...

The purpose of this investigation was to demonstrate callus induction and plantlet formation from cultured leaf segments of 12-15 week-old Dactylis glomerata L. (orchardgrass) plants. Flat half-leaf sections, approximately 2-3 mm square, from the three innermost (youngest) leaves were isolated and individually plated serially beginning at the leaf base on a solid SH medium containing 30 μM of 3,6-dichloro-oanisic acid (dicamba). Callus formed on leaf sections from all 50 plants used in the study. After transfer to SH medium with 1 μM dicamba, plantlets formed from leaf sections of 9 of the 50 plants...

UNLABELLED: The pressing need by the health organizations of new-graduate nurses immediately able to take full charge of the ward, together with the radical changes of nursing education, led the professional community to discuss the education of new-graduate nurses. AIM: To describe if new-graduate nurses at the Nursing Degree Course in Reggio Emilia, have the competences adequate to the demands of the health care organizations. METHODS: Fifty ward Nursing Manager of a National health Service, where new-graduate nurses of the 2009-2010 academic year were emploied by at least one month were interviewed by phone...

OBJECTIVE: To construct the recombinant plasmid pPHU281_A_Spec_B, which knock out Porphyrmonas gingivalis (Pg) FimA gene. METHODS: Genomic DNA was extracted from PgATCC33277 which was cultured in anaerobic condition. The upstream and downstream gene of FimA was cloned from Pg genenomic DNA with specific restriction sites by polymerase chain reaction. Suicide vector pPHU281 was inserted by three fragments: upstream, downstream of FimA gene and spectinomycin resistance gene...

Twenty patients of positive schizophrenia and 20 patients of negative schizophrenia, individually matched for age, sex, place of residence and education were studied to assess their linguistic competence and its relationship with psychopalhology and subsequent course of the disorder over a follow-up period of 6 months. It was observed that positive schizophrenics had significantly higher linguistic competence than negative schizophrenics. Linguistic competence was significantly related not only to the type of symptoms (positive or negative) but also to the severity of these symptoms...

Tributyltin (TBT) is a widespread marine pollutant that influences physiological conditions of fish and other aquatic organisms. In addition to effects on reproduction, the immune system has been proposed as a possible target for TBT effects. In the present study, the effects of TBT exposure were examined on the expression of genes involved in immune system compentence in liver and head kidney of Atlantic salmon, in the presence and absence of a second-messenger activator (forskolin). Juvenile salmon were force-fed a diet containing TBT (0-solvent control, 0...

Sexual ornaments might reliably indicate the ability to cope with parasites and diseases, and a better ability to mount a primary inflammatory response to a novel challenge. Carotenoid-based ornaments are amongst the commonest sexual signals of birds and often influence mate choice. Because carotenoids are immuno-stimulants, signallers may trade-off allocating these to ornamental colouration or using them for immune responses, so carotenoid-based ornaments might be particularly useful as honest indicators of immuno-compentence...

This paper uses a semiotic, performative theory of language and post-colonial theory to argue that nursing's representations of 'multiculturalism' need to be grounded in a theory of whiteness, an historicized understanding of how ethnic/cultural differences come to be represented in the ways they are and informed by Foucault's notions of power/knowledge. Using nursing education and 'cultural compentency' as examples, the paper draws on a range of literatures to suggest more critical and politically productive ways of approaching difference from within nursing's largely white interpretive framework...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the feasibility of oral case presentation (OCP) encounter cards as a tool for formative evaluation, to estimate the reliability and validity of the ratings when used in a medicine clerkship, and to examine whether the use of OCP encounter cards improves students' OCP skills. DESIGN: Randomized controlled study. SETTING: Medicine core clerkship at a U.S. medical school. PARTICIPANTS/INTERVENTION: Students enrolled in the medicine core clerkship (n=164) from January to December of 2003 were randomly assigned to receive weekly feedback using OCP encounter cards rating nine presentation compentencies or receive usual feedback...

A central repository for diagnostic information about individual patients was created as a service to diagnostic laboratories participating in the Compentence Network for Acute and Chronic Leukemias in order to support health care delivery to patients suffering from leukemia. During the diagnostic phase several specialised laboratories perform different assays on samples from the same patient. The use of these assays in the diagnostic process and during the treatment phase may be improved in terms of both rapid delivery and cost if any one laboratory is aware of preliminary or final results from the assay carried out in other laboratories...

The insurance companies located in Hannover have launched an initiative for a "Compentence Center for Insurance Sciences" whose participants include the Hannover Medical School (MHH/HMS), the University of Göttingen and the University of Hannover. A chair of insurance medicine has been established at the MHH/HMS, a professorship for insurance mathematics in Hannover and a professorship for insurance law in Göttingen. In cooperation with the chair of insurance economics, the above-mentioned participants are preparing to open a competence center that will operate as a limited liability company (GmbH), coordinating activities with economic relevance and providing information to encourage interdisciplinary cooperation among the university institutes and the insurance industry...

OBJECTIVE: The goal of this survey was to investigate adolescents' health through their utilization of a pediatric emergency unit. METHODS: Prospective survey performed one week of each month in 1999 concerning the adolescents' (12 to 18 years) visits to the Lenval's children emergency care unit in Nice. RESULTS: During the study period, 1,096 adolescents were examinated and accounting for 18.6% of the children admitted in the year. The main reasons for visits were injury-related visits (55...

In "From Value Chain to Value Constellation: Designing Interactive Strategy" (July-August 1993), Richard Normann and Rafael Ramírez argue that successful companies increasingly do not just add value, they reinvent it. The key strategic task is to reconfigure roles and relationships among a constellation of actors--suppliers, business partners, customers--in order to mobilize the creation of value in new forms and by new players. What is so different about this new logic of value? It breaks down the distinction between products and services and combines them into activity-based "offerings" from which customers can create value for themselves...

This study evaluated the propriety of decisions by aphasic adults to avoid or to return to driving following a cerebrovascular accident. A comparison was made of a rehabilitation team's assessments of driving skills with a group of 10 aphasic adults who had chosen to return to driving without professional consultation and 10 aphasic adults who had not returned to driving. The Fisher Exact Probability Test found that the team-assigned driver and nondriver groupings agreed with the patients' own groupings with the relationship significant at p less than 0...

The response of populations of Bacillus subtilis to both native deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and denatured DNA was investigated at maximal competence and at various times during the development of compentency. The results indicate that competence for transformation with native and denatured DNA increases and decreases simultaneously. Competition occurs between native and single-stranded DNA during transformation, and the same cells in a population can be doubly transformed by DNA molecules of both configurations...
