OBJECTIVE To describe the process of developing and validating the Canadian Association of Paediatric Health Centres Trigger Tool (CPTT). METHODS Five existing trigger tools were consolidated with duplicate triggers eliminated. After a risk analysis and modified Delphi process, the tool was reduced from 94 to 47 triggers. Feasibility of use was tested,(More)
BACKGROUND Keeping current with drug therapy information is challenging for health care practitioners. Technologies are often implemented to facilitate access to current and credible drug information sources. In the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, legislation was passed in 2002 to allow nurse practitioners (NPs) to practice collaboratively with physician(More)
Unlike landmark methods for estimating object asymmetry, continuous symmetry measures (CSM) can be used to measure the symmetry distance (ds) of inconsistent objects, such as plant leaves. Inconsistent objects have no homologous landmarks, no consistent topology, no quantitative consistency, and sometimes no matching points. When CSM is used in conjugation(More)
1 We thank Gunnar Blix and Damien Weldon of First American CoreLogic (FACL) for their profound support at all stages of the project, as well as FRBNY and NYU for research support. We thank also for essential input and guidance. ABSTRACT Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insurance has doubled over the past two years and is projected to redouble to $1.5(More)
House price changes are positively autocorrelated over two to three years, a phenomenon known as momentum. This paper introduces, empirically grounds, and quantitatively analyzes an ampli…cation mechanism that can generate substantial momentum from small frictions and demonstrates that the resulting momentum helps explain the short-run dynamics of housing(More)
Achieving stable, accurate, monotone and efficient (SAME) discrete approximate solution is of tremendous interest for convection-dominated computational fluid dynamics (CFD) applications. Recently, a non-linear Sub-Grid eMbedded (SGM) finite element basis was developed for generating multidimensional SAME solutions via the weak statement (WS). The theory(More)
