The treefrog Eleutherodactylus coqui is a direct developer--it has no tadpole stage. The limb buds develop earlier than in metamorphosing species (indirect developers, such as Xenopus laevis). Previous molecular studies suggest that at least some mechanisms of limb development in E. coqui are similar to those of other vertebrates and we wished to see how(More)
This summary of the TeV33 working group at Snowmass reports on work in the areas of Tevatron store parameters, the beam-beam interaction, Main Injector intensity (slip stacking), antiproton production, and electron cooling. I. OVERVIEW OF TEV33 The goal of the TeV33 project is to develop a plan for the Fermilab Tevatron Collider beyond the year 2000 when(More)
BACKGROUND Systems for planning are a critical component of the infrastructure for public health. Both in Australia and internationally there is growing interest in how planning processes might best be strengthened to improve health outcomes for communities. In Australia the delivery of public health varies across states, and mandated municipal public(More)
AIM to assess the effects of a physiotherapist-led stroke training programme for nurses working in a rehabilitation ward on clinical practice and patient outcome. METHOD before and after group comparison with outcome assessment by observational and quantitative methods. Non-participant observation before and after the 5-month training programme recorded(More)
BACKGROUND To operate effectively the public health system requires infrastructure and the capacity to act. Public health's ability to attract funding for infrastructure and capacity development would be enhanced if it was able to demonstrate what level of capacity was required to ensure a high performing system. Australia's public health activities are(More)
Public health infrastructure provides the building blocks required for the system to achieve public health goals. A systems approach to public health has been suggested as a means to tackle persistent and emerging problems. Systems and infrastructure are attracting increased research attention. A review of the Australian and international literature(More)
The effectiveness of multidisciplinary stroke rehabilitation may be enhanced by nurses and therapists adopting a single consistent approach to the positioning and mobilizing of patients. As patients can spend as little as 4% of the waking day receiving 'therapy' there is considerable potential for a more dynamic nursing intervention, which may contribute to(More)
BACKGROUND A multidisciplinary project team developed a five-month physiotherapist-led training programme designed to enhance nurses' rehabilitation skills. AIMS Investigation of the effects of the training programme on nurses attitudes to patients with stroke. METHOD An attitude questionnaire was completed by the participating nurses before and after(More)
The responsiveness of benthic biological communities to climatic drivers and shifts makes them powerful indicators of biogeochemical and other environmental change in the oceans. In addition, benthic ecosystems have an economic value and are considered a vital marine resource. However deep-sea faunal dynamics and ecosystem functioning is not well defined.(More)
