    Abstract : Financial incentives can be an effective tool to influence behaviour in almost any context and healthcare is no exception. The healthcare market is, however complex, characterised by uncertainty, information asymmetry and multiple agency connections. The reach and limits of financial incentives in healthcare has been widely debated for decades. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mechanical Behaviour of Single-Layer Adhesive Joints : an integrated approach

    Author : Li Högberg; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; adhesive layer; beam adhesive layer model; energy release rate; fracture; integrated; Engineering mechanics; Teknisk mekanik; Teknik; Technology;

    Abstract : Innovative products that are competitive on the market are likely to employ newtypes of materials and unusual geometries. A method that can assemble dissimilarmaterials and irregular geometries cost-effectively and at the same time offera joint that is light in weight and imperceptible, is optimal. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nutrition transition and the double burden of malnutrition in Indonesia : a mixed method approach exploring social and contextual determinants of malnutrition

    Author : Masoud Vaezghasemi; Nawi Ng; Ann Öhman; Malin Eriksson; Anna Winkvist; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Double burden of malnutrition; Child obesity; Body Mass Index; Gender relations; Social capital; Multilevel modelling; Grounded theory; Indonesian Family Life Surveys; Indonesia; folkhälsa; Public health;

    Abstract : IntroductionNutrition transition concerns the broad changes in the human diet that have occurred over time and space. In low- to middle-income countries such as Indonesia, nutrient transition describes shifts from traditional diets high in cereal and fibre towards Western pattern diets high in sugars, fat, and animal-source foods.

  4. 4. Mixed mode loaded adhesive layers : from measurement of material data to analysis of structural behaviour

    Author : Jia Li Högberg; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; adhesive layer; mixed mode testing; cohesive law; J-integral; Engineering mechanics; Teknisk mekanik; Teknik; Technology;

    Abstract : In manufacturing of multi-material products, a joining method that is able to cost-effectively assemble components made of dissimilar and similar material, with irregular geometries, is optimal. As an alternative, adhesive bonding is in-creasingly adapted by the industry, which is also used in manufacturing of multi-phase materials. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exploring patient safety in home healthcare : a resilience engineering approach

    Author : Marléne Lindblad; Mirjam Ekstedt; Maria Flink; Maria Unbeck; Peta Sjölander; Henning Boje Andersen; Ersta Sköndal Bräcke högskola; []
