Will I need an operation?
Reactions to the diagnosis of a long-term condition. Many people go to the doctor not knowing in advance that they have symptoms of a long-term health condition. Most people probably couldn't name more than one or two long-term conditions. And yet people with conditions like Type 2 Diabetes, Cardiac Disease and Rheumatoid Arthritis make up a large part of primary care work. You may understand what the long-term condition is medically, but do you really understand how shocked people can f

Noise at Work: A case study for use in teaching in Engineering Ethics
This is an Engineering Ethics case study from the IDEA CETL. The scenario examines the issues surrounding health and safety in the workplace in relation to noise pollution. It raises issues such as confidentiality; employer-employee relations; safety and risk. The case study is aimed at students who have been taught some ethics before. The teaching format is a two hour session with small group discussions. By the end of the session students will understand that: . Employers have a legal duty of
TALAT Lecture 2104.02: Case Study on Windows
This lecture gives teachers and students grounding in the development of satisfactory and suitable window design in aluminium; it helps them acquire an understanding of the principles underlying good design. Students need to be able to design aluminium windows which conform to local planning regulations and which are suitable for national traditions in each market they are offered in. This involves the acquisition of local climatic data since the products need to withstand the climatic condition
TALAT Lecture 2402: Design Recommendations for fatigue loaded structures
This lecture presents calculation of design stresses for variable stress ratios in practice, explanation on the background of design recommendations; it demonstrates the concept of partial safety factors and supply appropriate background information for aluminium; it enables the designer to evaluate service behavior of structural details on a more sophisticated level applying the same principles as in current design recommendations; it provides understanding of the fatigue design procedure accor
TALAT Lecture 3300: Fundamentals of Metal Forming
This lecture gives a brief review of the fundamental terms and laws governing metal forming at room temperature as well as at high temperatures. This lecture is a necessary prerequisite to understand the more specific treatment of metal forming subjects such as forging, impact extrusion and sheet metal forming in the subsequent TALAT This lectures 3400 to 3800. General background in production engineering, machine tools is assumed.
Introduction to microeconomics
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught Semester 1 2009/2010. There are no pre-requisites to taking this module and in particular there is no assumption of any prior knowledge of economics. For those who have taken A-level economics or any other version of economics some of the module content will appear familiar to you. However, the methods of analysis and the approach to teaching will quite probably be very different to anything experienced be
As taught in 2006-2007 and 2007-2008. Functional analysis begins with a marriage of linear algebra and metric topology. These work together in a highly effective way to elucidate problems arising from differential equations. Solutions are sought in an infinite dimensional space of functions. This module paves the way by establishing the principal theorems (all due in part to the great Polish mathematician Stefan Banach) and exploring their diverse consequences. Topics to be covered will include:
Leadership and Management
Through this module participants will have a better understanding of themselves and their impacts on others. They will understand the similarities and differences between management and leadership, as well as different models/styles and principles of leadership, the strengths and weaknesses of each, when they should be used and their potential use in improving population health and wellbeing. * Powerpoint presentation (for all users) * Powerpoint presentation with lecturer's notes (registere

Poco a Poco: Heath-Care Collaboration in Honduras
The Arizona Health Sciences Center at the University of Arizona assists individuals and communities statewide through a variety of outreach efforts. However, global initiatives are under way, too; members of the AHSC community are making a health-care difference in Honduras. While visiting a remote region of the Central American nation this winter, AHSC faculty, friends and others watched as a new clinic -- one that they helped to become a reality -- began to take shape.
Taking the Baby on the Road
A neonatologist at the University of Arizona College of Medicine is using simulation technology to prepare residents at University Medical Center and health-care professionals in outlying communities to manage crisis situations involving newborn babies. Her hands-on approach to neonatal resuscitation protocol (NRP) helps to foster teamwork and instill confidence in her students.
The goal of the Genetic Origins Program is to allow students to use their own DNA variations (polymorphisms) as a means to explore our shared genetic heritage and its implications for human health and society. Genetic Origins focuses on two types of DNA variations: an Alu insertion polymorphism on chromosome 16 (PV92) and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the control region of the mitochondrial (mt) chromosome. With two alleles and three genotypes, PV92 is a simple genetic system that il
