This study describes the redesign of an interprofessional team development course for health science students. A theoretical model is hypothesized as a framework for the redesign process, consisting of two themes: 1) the increasing trend among post-secondary students to participate in social networking (e.g., Facebook, Second Life) and 2) the need for(More)

Health Science teams are increasingly interprofessional and often require use of information communication technology. These shifts result in a need for health science students to learn online interprofessional teamwork skills early in their training. In response, one interprofessional communication skills course was remodelled from traditional(More)
The relatively weak uptake of spatial error handling capabilities by commercial GIS companies and users can in part be attributed to the relatively low availability and high costs of spatial data quality information. Based on the well established artificial intelligence technique of induction, this paper charts the development of an automated quality(More)
The terms " dynamic GIS " and " mobile GIS " have been around for some time. For example, back in 1990 Perez-Trejo suggested that a dynamic GIS could help analyse the impacts of climatic change on complex ecosystems. According to the author, climatic changes can not be assessed by studying one aspect of the system alone, but a dynamic GIS might contribute(More)
This longitudinal study inventoried the types of services accessed by a sample of Alberta families of children with or at-risk for disabilities. We explored the role of severity of disability, parental stress, and family income on services accessed. With few exceptions, services were accessed more frequently as the children's lives progressed but higher(More)
In a prospective study of pregnant women infected with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) in Brooklyn, New York, USA, 16 (29%) of 55 evaluable infants were infected with HIV-1. 9 infants had paediatric acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, 6 had less severe clinical manifestations of HIV-1 infection, and 1 was symptom-free but was seropositive for(More)
