  1. 1. Communication in the context of acute pain : Persuasion or validation?

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Johan Carstens Söderstrand; Steven Linton; Katja Boersma; Tamar Pincus; [2018]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Acute pain; communication; validation; reassurance; expectations for recovery; catastrophizing; recall; misdirected problem solving; psycho-logical flexibility;

    Abstract : Historically, the dominating theoretical framework for communication in the context of acute pain is reassurance. An inherent assumption of this framework is that the person in pain needs to have their fears and doubts removed and be educated, or persuaded, that the pain problem is not dan-gerous. READ MORE

    Abstract : Objectives. To describe the prevalence of asthma in a mid-Swedish region and measure the detection rate of asthma in primary care. To compare clinical outcomes for adolescents with asthma in primary care or in paediatric care and to perform a clinical validation in children with airway, nose and skin symptoms.Material and methods.

  3. 3. Validation and application of objective measures of obesity and physical activity studies in pregnant and non-pregnant adults and in infants

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Anna Gradmark; Paul W Franks; David Fields; [2011]
    Keywords : physical activity; validation; body composition; abdominal adipose tissue; methods; accelerometer; pregnancy; insulin sensitivity; offspring;

    Abstract : Background Excess adipose tissue and low physical activity are two major determinants for chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.  Understanding these relationships requires accurate and precise measures of body composition and physical activity, and most existing observational studies lack such measures.

  4. 4. Definition and validation of requirements management measures

    University dissertation from Umeå : Datavetenskap

    Author : Annabella Loconsole; Jürgen Börstler; Björn Regnell; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Requirement; Measures; Volatility; Theoretical Validation; Empirical Validation; Prediction Model; Correlational Study; Subjective Estimation.; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science Software engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap Programvaruteknik;

    Abstract : The quality of software systems depends on early activities in the software development process, of which the management of requirements is one. When requirements are not managed well, a project can fail or become more costly than intended, and the quality of the software developed can decrease. READ MORE

  5. 5. Zebrafish models for large-scale genetic screens in dyslipidemia and atherosclerosis Validation and application

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Manoj Kumar Bandaru; Marcel den Hoed; Anastasia Emmanouilidou; Ingelsson Erik; Shannon Fisher; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; zebrafish; dyslipidemia; atherosclerosis; genetic screens; high-cholesterol diet; APOE; APOB; LDLR; APOC2; PCSK9; LPAR2; GATAD2A; Medicinsk genetik; Medical Genetics;

    Abstract : Hundreds of loci have been robustly associated with circulating lipids, atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease; but for most loci the causal genes and mechanisms remain uncharacterized. The overall aim of my thesis is to develop and validate novel in vivo model systems that are suitable for high-throughput, image-based genetic screens in coronary artery disease and related traits, and use these model systems to systematically characterize positional candidate genes.
