There has been limited research on the effect of interprofessional education (IPE) over time on the attitudes of undergraduate health and human service professional students. Previous research in this area has suggested that students from different professions report differing attitudes towards IPE and interprofessional teamwork, and such attitudes may also(More)
Intestinal and urinary tract involvement by endometriosis may be symptomatic, particularly when invasive disease is present. Even in expert hands, complete excision of all invasive disease cannot be accomplished laparoscopically in every case. The practitioner must balance enthusiasm for the advantages of a laparoscopic approach with limitations of time and(More)
We report a technique for laparoscopic segmental resection of the sigmoid colon. A 30.73-year-old nulligravida complained of pelvic pain, abdominal bloating, intestinal cramping, and painful bowel movements. Examination revealed significant nodularity of the posterior pelvis, so a preoperative bowel prep was given. At laparoscopy, a 5 cm diameter(More)

The purpose of this study was to examine specific attributes of faculty members, which might relate to attitudes towards IPE and interprofessional teamwork. METHODS A survey was(More)
In uncon®ned aquifers ¯owing under topographic gradients, the water table is a subdued replica of the ground surface above. This principle is the basis for using detailed collateral or secondary information from digital elevation models to supplement sparse observations from water wells in the mapping of phreatic surfaces. Data from DEM-derived secondary(More)
A 33-year-old woman, para 1001, had pain in the inner right thigh and proximal right leg weakness. At surgery a locally invasive, fibrotic lesion was found encircling the right ureter, right internal iliac vein and obturator nerve. It extended to the periosteum of the ilium.

OBJECTIVE To compare three methods of segmental lower colon resection for treatment of symptomatic intestinal endometriosis. DESIGN Retrospective case study. SETTING Private practice patients in a rural community hospital. PATIENTS Patients with nodular, invasive rectosigmoid endometriosis requiring segmental resection and anastomosis for treatment.(More)
BACKGROUND The small group, case-based learning approach is believed to be a useful strategy for facilitating interprofessional learning and interaction factors are said to have a significant effect on student interest, learning and satisfaction with such approaches. AIM The purpose of our study was twofold: assess students' satisfaction with a blended(More)
