This monograph lays out a discussion framework for understanding the role of human–computer interaction (HCI) in public policymaking. We take an international view, discussing potential areas for research and application, and their potential for impact. Little has been written about the intersection of HCI and public policy; existing reports typically focus(More)
We have performed a prospective study in 100 adults (ASA I or II) undergoing day-case dental extraction to compare the conditions for intubation and the postoperative sequelae of suxamethonium and alfentanil as adjuncts to propofol. The patients were allocated randomly to two groups comparable in age, sex and weight. Successful intubation was achieved in(More)
During the years 1971 to 1980, 355 samples of animal feeds submitted to this laboratory in connection with suspected mycotoxicoses were analysed for aflatoxins. Most major Queensland agricultural crops were represented. Aflatoxins were detected in 67 samples, 45 of which were peanut meals and by-products (55% of all peanut materials analysed). Of 200(More)
We analyze the usability of different label positions in online forms, using an eye-tracking system, with a small sample of UK university-educated users. The results unexpectedly contradict Wroblewski, and recommend right-aligned labels, at least in the context of forms with multiple columns. The work was carried out by an undergraduate intern from an(More)
Recent surveys have shown that the majority of websites are not accessible. Despite legal obligations and the importance of the internet for disabled people, most websites fail to reach a basic level of accessibility, yet web developers are not short of accessibility guidelines and recommendations. This preliminary study consists of a meta-review of web(More)
There is little information on the possible value of screening children who are liable to haemoglobinopathies as part of pre-operative assessment for dental treatment under general anaesthesia. The present retrospective investigation examined, first, the number of patients having low haemoglobin levels among 1000 patients who had undergone haematological(More)
Public policy increasingly plays a role in influencing the work that we do as HCI researchers, interaction designers, and practitioners. "Public policy" is a broad term that includes both government policy and policy within non-governmental organizations, such as standards bodies. The Interacting with Public Policy forum focuses on topics at the(More)
