This article reports an evaluation of a community intellectual disability offender service over the period from 1990 to 2001. Men who committed sex offenses or sexually abusive incidents (n = 106) and men who committed other types of offenses and serious incidents (n = 78) are compared on personal characteristics, referral sources, forensic details, and(More)
INTRODUCTION Mitochondria are intracellular organelles involved in adenosine triphosphate production. The literature has established the presence of mitochondrial dysfunction in some subjects with psychiatric disorders. Also, there are multiple reports of patients with mitochondrial dysfunction who have various psychiatric disorders. Although the literature(More)
OBJECTIVE Advance care planning (ACP) can result in end-of-life care that is more congruent with patients' values and preferences. There is increasing interest in video decision aids to assist with ACP. The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of video decision aids on patients' preferences regarding life-sustaining treatments (primary(More)
This paper is concerned with the problem of distributing pieces of information to nodes in a network in such a way that any pair of nodes can compute a secure common key but the amount of information stored at each node is small. It has been proposed that a special type of finite incidence structure, called a key distribution pattern (KDP) , might provide a(More)
The quantity g (k) (v) was introduced in [6] as the minimum number of blocks necessary in a pairwise balanced design on v elements, subject to the condition that the longest block has length k. Recently, we have needed to use all possibilities for such minimal covering designs, and we record all non-isomorphic solutions to the problem for v ≤ 13.
We introduce a class of ordered triple systems which are both Mendelsohn triple systems and directed triple systems. We call these Mendelsohn directed triple systems (MDTS(v, λ)), characterise them, and prove that they exist if and only if λ(v−1) ≡ 0 (mod 3). This is the same spectrum as that of regular directed triple systems, of which they are a special(More)
