OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to explore the views of people aged over 70 years on involvement in their primary health care in 11 different European countries. METHODS Older patients were asked about their views on patient involvement in a face-to-face interview. All interviews were audio-recorded, transcribed and analysed in accordance with the(More)
Computer-based Clinical Reporting Systems (CRS) for diagnostic departments that use structured data entry have a number of functional and structural affinities suggesting that a common software architecture for CRS may be defined. Such an architecture should allow easy expandability and reusability of a CRS. We report the development methodology and the(More)
In this paper, we present a precise technique for contactless measurement of resistivity in conductive tubes. The method is simply based on the determination of the phase angle of the complex mutual inductance between two coils working under low-frequency conditions. The first coil is placed around the tube, whereas the detecting coil is situated inside it.(More)
BACKGROUND Elderly patients' interaction with the GP may be improved through patient involvement techniques, and there is a variety of such techniques which improve patients' involvement in their own care, although little is known about their acceptability. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to identify barriers and facilitators for using patient(More)
Spin orbit interactions are rapidly emerging as the key for enabling efficient current-controlled spintronic devices. Much work has focused on the role of spin-orbit coupling at heavy metal/ferromagnet interfaces in generating current-induced spin-orbit torques. However, the strong influence of the spin-orbit-derived Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI)(More)
Ultrathin ferromagnetic strips with high perpendicular anisotropy have been proposed for the development of memory devices where the information is coded in tiny domains separated by domain walls. The design of practical devices requires creating, manipulating and detecting domain walls in ferromagnetic strips. Recent observations have shown highly(More)
SISCOPE is an integrated data management system for use in gastrointestinal endoscopy units which operates in the multiuser mode on UNIX minicomputers or MS-DOS personal computers and can be used for patient bookings, endoscopic data entry and retrieval, and automatic report generation in upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, proctologic examinations,(More)
The OMED nomenclature represented a turning point in endoscopic computer systems by supplying software developers with an internationally recognized scientific document on which prototypes could be based. The main pitfalls of the OMED system are related to its hierarchical structure, probably not the most effective design to represent endoscopic findings.(More)
