BACKGROUND Several studies found increased survival times and decreased hospitalization rates since the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). OBJECTIVE To examine the impact of HAART on admission patterns and survival of HIV-infected patients admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU). DESIGN Prospective observational cohort study.(More)
In the context of distance learning and teaching, the re-engineering process needs a feedback on the learners' usage of the learning system. The feedback is given by numerous vectors, such as interviews, questionnaires, videos or log files. We consider that it is important to interpret tracks in order to compare the designer's intentions with the learners'(More)

The feedback is given by interviews, questionnaires, but in the majority of systems, it is given by log files.

OBJECTIVE We aimed to determine the trends in numbers and percentages of sexually exposed persons to HIV (SE) consulting an ED for post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), as well as predictors of condom use. STUDY DESIGN We conducted a prospective-observational study. METHODS We included all SE attendances in our Emergency Department (ED) during a seven-year(More)

This paper describes a method of reengineering based on information technology engineering and object-oriented software engineering. Focused on the reusability issue, these two communities propose different technical solutions. The first, using XML technologies, describes the content in a structured formalism and the second recommends the implementation of(More)
BACKGROUND It has been reported that emergency department length of stay (ED-LOS) for older patients is longer than average. Our objective was to determine the effect of age, patient's clinical acuity and complexity, and care pathways on ED-LOS and ED plus observation unit (EDOU) LOS (EDOU-LOS). METHODS This was a prospective, multicentre, observational(More)
In the context of distance learning and teaching, a re-engineering process needs a feedback on the learners' uses of the learning system. The feedback could be given by interviews, questionnaires, but in many systems, it is also provided by the analysis of log files. Our works on the re-engineering driven by models of e-learning systems, propose an(More)
