BACKGROUND Sedentary activities, such as watching television, may disrupt habituation to food cues, thereby increasing motivation to eat and energy intake. OBJECTIVE These experiments were designed to examine the effect of television watching on habituation of ingestive behavior in children. DESIGN In experiment 1, all children worked for access to(More)
Decreased success at work and educational attainment by adulthood are of concern for children with ADHD given their widely documented academic difficulties; however there are few studies that have examined this empirically and even fewer that have studied predictors and individual variability of these outcomes. The current study compares young adults with(More)
Several nursing practice models use nurse extenders/partners to extend nurses' time. The authors discuss the development, implementation, and evaluation of the "partner in patient care" (PIPC) model. Unique aspects of the model are emphasized, including use of a collaborative process to generate the design and guide the implementation; staff participation(More)
This study compared the high school academic experience of adolescents with and without childhood ADHD using data from the Pittsburgh ADHD Longitudinal Study (PALS). Participants were 326 males with childhood ADHD and 213 demographically similar males without ADHD who were recruited at the start of the follow-up study. Data were collected yearly from(More)
Salivary responses habituate to repeated presentations of food cues, and these responses recover when new food stimuli are presented. Research suggests that within-session changes in motivated responding for food may also habituate, and motivated responding may, therefore, recover when new foods are presented. The purpose of this study was to evaluate(More)
With the growing use of multiple types of nurse extenders in new patient care-delivery models, there is a need not only for outcome research on their design and use but for identification and discussion of effective team-building processes necessary to implementing these models. This article presents an analysis of the interdisciplinary team process and the(More)
This outcomes research used a collaborative framework between a college of nursing and a medical center to test the effects of the Partners in Patient Care delivery model (PIPC) on clinical and nonclinical outcomes. An experimental pretest-postest design was used to compare selected nonclinical outcomes and clinical outcomes of care in two patient units.(More)

The purpose of this experimental research was to determine the effects of the Partners in Care Practice Model (PIPC) on the outcomes of productivity and costs. Over an 18-month study period, no significant differences were found in costs per patient day between the pilot and control units; however, significant differences were found in actual salaries,(More)
