REFLEXOLOGYReflexology is an alternative medicine method involving application of pressure to the hands, ears and feet. Reflexology (zone therapy) aims to encourage a beneficial effect on other parts of the body, or to improve general health. Reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body. There is no consensus among reflexologists on how reflexology is supposed to work; a unifying theme is the idea that areas on the foot correspond to areas of the body.
A systematic review of the efficacy of reflexology found a statistically significant effect in the treatment of urinary symptoms in multiple sclerosis patients. Reflexologists believe that the blockage of an energy field, invisible life force, or Qi, can prevent healing.
Reflexologists also believe that they can relieve stress and pain in other parts of the body through the manipulation of the feet.
ANIMAL PHYSIOLOGYThis subcategory of biology studies the normal functioning of animals and the chemical factors and processes involved. Adaptation (eye) - In ocular physiology, adaptation is the ability of the eye to adjust to various levels of darkness and light. Amebocyte - An amebocyte or amoebocyte is a mobile cell in the body of invertebrates such as echinoderms, mollusks or sponges.
Blood type (non-human) - Animals and bacteria have cell surface antigens referred to as a blood type.
Blood-brain barrier - The blood�brain barrier is a separation of circulating blood and cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system. Bone remodeling - Bone remodeling is a life-long process where mature bone tissue is removed from the skeleton and new bone tissue is formed. Crenation - Crenation is the contraction of a cell after exposure to a hypertonic solution, due to the loss of water through osmosis. Critical thermal maximum - Critical thermal maximum, in zoology, is that temperature for a given species above which most individuals respond with unorganized locomotion, subjecting the animal to likely death.
Desquamation - Desquamation is the shedding of the outermost membrane or layer of a tissue, such as the skin.
Foramen of Panizza - the Foramen of Panizza is a hole with that connects the left and right aorta as they leave the heart of all animals of the order Crocodilia. Heterothermy - Heterothermy is a physiological term for animals that exhibit characteristics of both poikilothermy and homeothermy. Inflammation - Inflammation is part of the complex biological response of vascular tissues to harmful stimuli, such as pathogens, damaged cells, or irritants.
Insect physiology - Insect physiology includes the physiology and biochemistry of insect organ systems.
Kleptothermy - Kleptothermy is any form of thermoregulation by which an animal shares in the metabolic thermogenesis of another animal. Lactation - Lactation describes the secretion of milk from the mammary glands, the process of providing that milk to the young, and the period of time that a mother lactates to feed her young.

Reflex - A reflex action, also known as a reflex, is an involuntary and nearly instantaneous movement in response to a stimulus. Thermal neutral zone - A thermal neutral zone is essentially an endotherm's temperature tolerance range. Thermoregulation - Thermoregulation is the ability of an organism to keep its body temperature within certain boundaries, even when the surrounding temperature is very different. Tissue hydration - Tissue hydration is the process of absorbing and retaining water in biological tissues. Patient associations have rightly found an increasing voice and are being welcomed into the discussion; big data is helping to create patient archetypes, which in turn allow healthcare stakeholders to address some of the challenges of adherence, enriching understanding of how patients behave. Sometime ago we started to move away from blunt descriptors that linked suffering with a given condition; no longer did we talk of osteoarthritis sufferers, instead we defined these populations as people living with osteoarthritis. In part, these subtle language shifts signalled that the era of self-care was beginning, with an empowered population ready to take up the challenges, with increasing responsibility for directing what they wanted out of healthcare.
Today, however, self care has not reached its full potential and the challenges of adherence continue to illustrate that there is much progress to be made on the journey.
Conversely, information seeking is generally regarded as a good thing in pharma and it follows that surely it must be good for people to have as much information as possible about their condition. While we can seek comfort from big data and clustering behaviours, we must not forget the individual. While pharma is guided by regulations, there are enormous lessons that can be drawn from sectors outside health.

Ultimately, anything that puts the person at the centre of their care has to be the future of healthcare. Business intelligence needs mix of qual approaches to access non-rational components of clinical decision-making and find out what’s really driving behaviour. Pharma may have turned the spotlight on patients, it must now consider families and carers, who play a crucial part in the success of care and treatment plans. Technology firms are leading innovation and influencing changes in the healthcare landscape, so what’s in it for patients and what does it mean for Pharma?

Nursing image is closely tied to the concepts of roles and identity - in this context, the image and identities of nurses online are being considered. The word nursing is derived from the Latin word "nutrire" which means "to nourish." From its earliest beginnings, the nursing profession has evolved in response to human need. There have been many images of nurses purported in the media, in movies and books, and in the news.
Scholars who have studied the historical context of nursing's image trace it back to the time of Florence Nightingale, often lauded as the "founder of nursing". Around the world, from the Americas to India, nurses have struggled with a poor image in the general social context. Foskett and Hemsley-Brown found that young people held vague and fragmented views of what nurses were and did in their practice. A personal survey of thousands of images of nurses on the internet showed that over 80 per cent of the images depicted nurses as white, middle class and often blonde. During that time she has written over two hundred books, software packages and TV programmes about primary literacy, and worked as a consultant for the Department for Education, the National Literacy Trust, the Basic Skills Agency, many educational publishers and the BBC. Her first book on this subject, Toxic Childhood, was published in 2006, since when she has been involved in many national campaigns around education, outdoor play, screen-based entertainment and the commercialisation of childhood. She qualified as a social worker in 1987 and has worked as a frontline practitioner and manager and has also held a number of senior management and leadership positions with a focus on multi-agency partnership working. We connect research with practice, exchange knowledge and ideas and coordinate activities across Child Protection Committees and are also developing links between child protection and adult protection in Scotland. He has worked with the IT sector for over 15 years in a consultative capacity on issues of ethical and social responsibility, with companies such as British Telecom, Google and Facebook.
Its media use and attitudes reports show trends since 2005 in the areas of take-up and use of different media, with a particular focus on internet habits and attitudes. She has a doctorate from the University of Stirling which examined the development of the UK’s TV news industry, and has carried out a number of multi-country analyses of TV news coverage of conflicts. Naively I thought that with a small bit of advertising the site would take off but this is harder work than I ever imagined! Integration extends from molecules to organ systems and from one physiological discipline to another. Take a look at any of the pharmaceutical media today and it’s difficult to avoid phrases like patient centricity. Similarly, in cancer we less frequently hear phrases like terminal cancer, instead we refer to people living with cancer and cancer survivors.
However, in reality, information is only appreciated if it is welcome, appropriate and timely. The journey that they are undertaking at that moment in time is not one of hope and treatment realities, but one of fear and ultimately mortality risk. This may literally mean going to their homes or contacting them online rather than dragging them to a viewing facility. Just because people understand, it doesn’t mean they want to engage or follow instructions. The true value of treatment to a person and their family often goes beyond simply lifting the symptoms and clinical burden. While the medical profession may have set criteria for how it defines a patient’s progress, this may never align with what an individual regards as success.
We talk about adherence but the challenge within the charitable sector around recruiting members and keeping them actively involved – and donating – in campaigns has interesting parallels. Without individual accountability, there isn’t a country in the world that can afford the rising costs of care. However, in thinking patients first – not people – we may be missing an opportunity to ignite the self-care revolution.

Cyberculture theory is rich with references to identity formation in the cyberspace environment. Common images include: "ministering angel," "physician's handmaiden," "oppressive battle ax a la Nurse Ratched," and sexually related stereotypes ranging from rigid prude to sex kitten.
In the United Kingdom, nurses have petitioned to have present day nursing disassociated with Nightingale. Australian nurses have shared in this misconceived identity: "The public image of Australian nursing has been subject to a plethora of influencing factors since health-care services were first established in this country over two centuries ago, Since its colonial origins, when considered an occupation suitable only for the socially outcast, nursing has evolved through decades of changes and reform. During the course of the series, Margaret evolved from a sexy, one-dimensional comic foil for Hawkeye and Trapper John to a fully developed character with one overriding passion: to be the best damn nurse in Korea. Done thoughtfully this exercise can reveal some of the issues embedded in the cultural stereotypes which are imposed on nursing.
At the heart of WithScotland is the principle of improving outcomes for children in need of care and protection and adults at risk of harm by working in partnership and facilitating access to expertise across Scotland. He has presented written and oral evidence to parliamentary enquiries related to the public use of ICT and is widely published in the area.
This presents a new take on how we define bullying and where responses must focus to be effective. Two years later she became a sessional supervisor and following this her hours have been increased to cover a maternity leave. Conferences are designed to share best practice around patient experience and there is a steady rise of individuals with roles that put patient engagement and advocacy at the heart of what they do. Equally, it is clear that the reluctance of some to recognise themselves as ill may mean that they fall out of the HCP monitoring system for a significant part of their journey.
It brings a sense of emotional well-being, renewed engagement with life and friends, and even financial benefit. It may not be a conversation around compliance, but what if we stopped talking in this manner?

In professional contexts, nursing tends to convey a professional image, one that motivates trust and expectations for accountability. Even though these multiple misconcieved images abound, nurses continue to be quite invisible in the media, compared to other cultural groups."The 1997 Woodhull Study on Nursing and the Media, conducted by Sigma Theta Tau International, found that nurses were severely under-represented in print media, including in comprehensive coverage of health care. Her image and her writing have held back the image of nursing in the subserviant and invisible shadows of the health care system and the social eye at large. From a position of significant oppression and medical subservience, generations of Australian nurses have fought for public recognition in terms of identity, respect and role acknowledgement" (Bloomfield, 1999, p. Nellie the Nurse began in the mid-forties, and The Romances of Nurse Helen Grant appeared in the late fifties. Andrews presents an insightful Powerpoint synoposis on the current trends and deconstruction of harmful images of nursing. In recent years he has specialised in the use of ICTs by children and young people, carrying out a large amount of grass roots research on issues such as their attitudes toward privacy and data protection, file sharing and internet safety. He has also conducted research into young people’s experiences of cyberbullying and their online behavior.
Kibooku was the subject of a very successful debate in the Scottish Parliament and we were credited for our site and what we are trying to do. Even for the most engaged, how the condition impacts on their lives and what they are prepared to tolerate changes over time and with exposure to other sources of influence. People’s expectations and their hopes for health improvements are highly individualised. Particular interest in identifying unmet needs, patient pathways and defining full disease burden on the whole household. Of 1,153 health care stories in 16 major newspapers, only 11 carried references to nurses, the study found" (Sussman, 2000, p.
Many showed nurses with stethoscopes around their necks (not professionally sanctioned), with caps on (rarely worn by contemporary nurses) with a syringe poised in her hand, ready for administration (injections are being phased out in practice in favor of less invasive administration methods). Strategies for moving beyond stereotypical images to a realistic one where nurses are seen as the intelligent, motivated professionals they are offered.
He is a research partner with the UK Safer Internet Centre and is a frequent media commentator on children and the Internet. We continue to raise awareness of safe social networking and will keep trying to do so until the site is a major success and our kids are in a safe environment on the internet”. This often leads to repressed thoughts about symptoms, avoiding displaying medication and talking about bad news. To encourage self-care we really need to understand where health fits in the hierarchy of the needs of individuals. We achieve this by: Assessing offenders and making skilled judgements about how to reduce the risk they pose. She added that Ms Nightingale was against lay women healers and opposed women speaking in public" (BBC Health, 1999, p. Even the pictures that portrayed nurses as friendly, caring, professional included some of these visible "myths" associated with nursing. Likewise, provides campaign and media advise and examples of print, web, television, movie theatre and radio information and images to help raise the social consciousness of the realities of nursing.
Individualism is difficult in an environment of globalisation, but actually reaps major rewards in the context of care. In reality, we may have to work hard to elevate how they engage with health personally before we can reach out to them within terms of self-care.
Nurses are in the background, seen only by the people who have first hand experiences with them - the patients they provide care for. And, though she gained fame as a reporter for the Daily Planet, the intrepid Lois Lane took time out from chasing Superman to work as a volunteer nurse at Metropolis Hospital. Operating in the media shadow, nurses function as a very real but transparent infrastructure that keeps the health care system from literally falling apart.
The dozen or so images shown on this page were all found on the internet with the key word "nurse" as identifier. Rarely do people hear about their fine intellects, their on-the-spot critical, "life or death" thinking, or their heroic efforts to provide accountable, complex, quality health interventions in a time of chaos and crisis. Despite an obvious move to try to convey professionalism in images of nurses, we still have a long way to go to make these images realistic and grounded in true nursing practice. Values London Probation Trust has five core values which are at the heart of our responsibility to create a safer London Engaging with Communities – working together to improve public safety.
Nursing's identity is still being shaped and shifted - this process is fully visible on the internet if one looks for it.
