Receiving Social Support at Church When Stressful Life Events Arise: Do Catholics and Protestants Differ?  

PubMed Central

The purpose of this study is to see if older Protestants and older Catholics differ in the amount of social support they receive from fellow church members and members of the clergy when stressful life events arise. The data come from a nationwide longitudinal survey of older adults. The findings reveal that at relatively low levels of exposure to stress, older Catholics are less likely than older Protestants to get emotional support from either rank-and-file church members or members of the clergy. However, as the level of exposure to stress increases, this difference disappears, and older Catholics appear to be just as likely as older Protestants to receive emotional support from fellow church members and members of the clergy. The theoretical implications of these findings are discussed.

The rhythm is off beat: a personal view of Catholic teachings on contraception.  

PubMed

The perception that the Roman Catholic Church is obsessed with sex and sin obscures its support for causes that further social justice. However, despite agreement with most church policies, Roman Catholics of good conscience disagree with Vatican rulings banning the use of contraception. The attitude that supports this ban originated almost 2000 years ago when male theologians linked sex and sexual pleasure to original sin and decided that women were "the devil's gateway." By the Middle Ages, male theologians decided that women's only value was in procreation. This idea has been forwarded by modern Popes who outlaw contraception but allow couples to use "natural" methods of family planning. The church's current position on contraception is founded on assumptions made in the past that were based on incorrect ideas about reproduction, on cultural norms that devalued women, and on misogynist attitudes. Thus, this stand on contraception is not divinely ordained and is, instead, untenable with its fixation on sex as sin and on women as the source of sin. It is hoped that one day the church will recognize that sexuality is derived from God and that couples can use many different methods of separating procreation from sex without sinning.

The healing community: A Catholic social justice critique of modern health care.  

PubMed

Catholic social thought calls for persons to be treated as subjects, not only as objects, and for a society in which basic health care is available to all. Treating the body as an object, isolated from other bodies and composed of many parts or systems, has led to great success in treating disease but has also degraded human dignity in patient care. Healthcare costs in the U.S. impede ready access to care, leading to financial collapse for millions each year; this is largely a generational result of rising expectations of long life for the elderly and widespread abortion of the very young (unborn); which practices follow in turn from the presumption that health results from human ingenuity and management. Catholic social thought affirms that love is essential to true health care and acknowledges that God is the source of healing. Such a perspective could point the way to humanizing the hospital experience and redressing the socioeconomic inequalities of modern health care. PMID:24899751

Therapeutic, prophylactic, untoward, and contraceptive effects of combined oral contraceptives: catholic teaching, natural law, and the principle of double effect when deciding to prescribe and use.  

PubMed

Combined oral contraceptives (COC) have been demonstrated to have significant benefits for the treatment and prevention of disease. These medications also are associated with untoward health effects, and they may be directly contraceptive. Prescribers and users must compare and weigh the intended beneficial health effects against foreseeable but unintended possible adverse effects in their decisions to prescribe and use. Additionally, those who intend to abide by Catholic teachings must consider prohibitions against contraception. Ethical judgments concerning both health benefits and contraception are approached in this essay through an overview of the therapeutic, prophylactic, untoward, and contraceptive effects of COC and discussion of magisterial and traditional Catholic teachings from natural law. Discerning through the principle of double effect, proportionate reason, and evidence gathered from the sciences, medical and moral conclusions are drawn that we believe to be fully compliant with good medicine and Catholic teaching.

Religious Beliefs and Cancer Screening Behaviors among Catholic Latinos: Implications for Faith-based Interventions.  

PubMed

Although most U.S. Latinos identify as Catholic, few studies have focused on the influence of this religious tradition on health beliefs among this population. This study explores the role of Catholic religious teachings, practices, and ministry on cancer screening knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors among Latinos. Eight focus groups were conducted with 67 Catholic Latino parishioners in Massachusetts. Qualitative analysis provided evidence of strong reliance on faith, God, and parish leaders for health concerns. Parishes were described as vital sources of health and social support, playing a central role in the community's health. Participants emphasized that their religious beliefs promote positive health behaviors and health care utilization, including the use of cancer screening services. In addition, they expressed willingness to participate in cancer education programs located at their parishes and provided practical recommendations for implementing health programs in parishes. Implications for culturally appropriate health communication and faith-based interventions are discussed. PMID:24858865

Catholics agree with Protestants that abortion and contraception should be widely available.  

PubMed

2 polls conducted late in 1979, around the time of the visit of Pope John Paul II to the United States, showed a majority of Catholics and Protestants believing that abortions should be available without interference. A telephone poll conducted by CBS and the New York Times between October 29 and November 3 reached a national random sample of 1385 adults. 64% of Catholics and 69% of Protestants agreed that "the right of a woman to have an abortion should be left entirely to the woman and her doctor." 32% of Catholics and 27% of Protestants disagreed, with 4% in each group unsure. 27% of Catholics and 32% of Protestants would disapprove if someone they knew had an abortion; 44% of Catholics and 39% of Protestants would approve. 25% in each group said their approval would depend on circumstances. 4% in each group were undecided about their attitude. In a telephone poll conducted by NBC and the Associated Press, 50% of Catholics and 54% of non-Catholics agreed that "every woman who wants to have an abortion should be able to have one." 45% of Catholics and 40% of non-Catholics disagreed, with 6% undecided in each group. Strength of religious belief was found to correlate with opposition to wide availability of abortion. Among those who disapproved, however, almost 90% agreed that a woman should be able to obtain an abortion if her life was endangered by pregnancy or childbirth. About 7 in 10 of both Catholics and non-Catholics felt the Church should change its stand on birth control, and 76% of Catholics felt that it was possible to use birth control and remain a good Catholic. Majorities of both groups felt that the Pope should continue to speak out on social issues, while reserving the right to disagree. The poll was made up of a sample of 1603 people over age 18, of whom 449 were identified as Catholics. PMID:11643591

The article focuses on the tradition and teaching of the classics in social sciences, the main contemporary social theories, social sciences in health with an emphasis on teaching, and observations on the interface between teaching in social sciences and life sciences. The author concludes by highlighting the importance of work by social scientists in the health field and identifies the following problematic points: difficulties in dealing with mediations between the biological and the social; frequent subordination of foundations to techniques; and ideological and common-sense issues in the teaching and appropriation of Social Sciences in Health.

Roman Catholic doctrine guiding end-of-life care: a summary of the recent discourse.  

PubMed

Recent statements emanating from high-level church authorities have reignited discussion over the traditional Roman Catholic doctrine guiding end-of-life care. Although these statements concerned the specific issue of artificial nutrition and hydration for patients in a persistent vegetative state, they contain principles that might be applied to other life-prolonging interventions. This paper examines the origins of the Catholic moral tradition that guides end-of-life care. Included is a discussion of the "ordinary-extraordinary" distinction, as well as the Catholic definition of "euthanasia by omission." Further discussion focuses on those recent statements that have reaffirmed the Church's teaching regarding life-sustaining interventions. Although a source of some consternation, these statements should spark healthy discussion within Catholic health care facilities and among patients seeking advice about advance care planning within a Catholic framework. Moreover, the statements rightly reaffirm the Church's unwavering commitment to delivering compassionate palliative care. PMID:19327075

Teaching Human Poses Interactively to a Social Robot  

PubMed Central

The main activity of social robots is to interact with people. In order to do that, the robot must be able to understand what the user is saying or doing. Typically, this capability consists of pre-programmed behaviors or is acquired through controlled learning processes, which are executed before the social interaction begins. This paper presents a software architecture that enables a robot to learn poses in a similar way as people do. That is, hearing its teacher's explanations and acquiring new knowledge in real time. The architecture leans on two main components: an RGB-D (Red-, Green-, Blue- Depth) -based visual system, which gathers the user examples, and an Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) system, which processes the speech describing those examples. The robot is able to naturally learn the poses the teacher is showing to it by maintaining a natural interaction with the teacher. We evaluate our system with 24 users who teach the robot a predetermined set of poses. The experimental results show that, with a few training examples, the system reaches high accuracy and robustness. This method shows how to combine data from the visual and auditory systems for the acquisition of new knowledge in a natural manner. Such a natural way of training enables robots to learn from users, even if they are not experts in robotics.

Perceptions and practices of adapted physical educators on the teaching of social skills.

The purpose of this study was to determine adapted physical educators' perceptions and practices about teaching social skills to students with disabilities. A questionnaire based on Bandura's social learning theory concept of modeling was developed and mailed to an entire frame of 426 adapted physical education teachers in the state of Ohio. Face and content validity as well as test/retest reliability (0.89) were established. Of those that were surveyed, 53% (225 teachers; 148 females and 77 males) responded. Results indicate that 93% (209) believe it is important to explicitly teach social skills in PE; however, 60% (135) expressed not feeling properly prepared to teach them. Teachers with more than 20 years of teaching experience were more likely to actually teach social skills. When compared with other teachers with less years teaching, however, they identified a greater need for training in the teaching of social skills. Results are discussed relative to teacher preparation and practices as well as social skills taught for general education and community integration. PMID:19478348

Editors' overview perspectives on teaching social responsibility to students in science and engineering.  

PubMed

Global society is facing formidable current and future problems that threaten the prospects for justice and peace, sustainability, and the well-being of humanity both now and in the future. Many of these problems are related to science and technology and to how they function in the world. If the social responsibility of scientists and engineers implies a duty to safeguard or promote a peaceful, just and sustainable world society, then science and engineering education should empower students to fulfil this responsibility. The contributions to this special issue present European examples of teaching social responsibility to students in science and engineering, and provide examples and discussion of how this teaching can be promoted, and of obstacles that are encountered. Speaking generally, education aimed at preparing future scientists and engineers for social responsibility is presently very limited and seemingly insufficient in view of the enormous ethical and social problems that are associated with current science and technology. Although many social, political and professional organisations have expressed the need for the provision of teaching for social responsibility, important and persistent barriers stand in the way of its sustained development. What is needed are both bottom-up teaching initiatives from individuals or groups of academic teachers, and top-down support to secure appropriate embedding in the university. Often the latter is lacking or inadequate. Educational policies at the national or international level, such as the Bologna agreements in Europe, can be an opportunity for introducing teaching for social responsibility. However, frequently no or only limited positive effect of such policies can be discerned. Existing accreditation and evaluation mechanisms do not guarantee appropriate attention to teaching for social responsibility, because, in their current form, they provide no guarantee that the curricula pay sufficient attention to teaching goals that are desirable for society as a whole.

Teaching for Social Justice and K-12 Student Outcomes: A Conceptual Framework and Research Review  

Microsoft Academic Search

Redressing educational inequity requires taking a comprehensive and systemic approach to education reform, a practice increasingly framed as “social justice (in) education.” However, while state and federal accountability mandates require any reform intended for K-12 classroom implementation to have a demonstrable impact on student achievement, published accounts of classroom-level “teaching for social justice” are widely varied and scantly evaluated.

Catholics using contraceptives: religion, family planning, and interpretive agency in rural Mexico.  

PubMed

Research on how religion shapes contraceptive practices and fertility has paid insufficient attention to how people interpret religious teachings. This study draws on ethnographic fieldwork in Degollado, Mexico, to describe generational and social-contextual differences in how women interpret and use religious doctrine to achieve their fertility desires without jeopardizing their standing as devout Catholics. Contrasting the family planning beliefs and practices of young Mexican women with those of older women (many of whom are the younger women's parents and in-laws), in a rural town in which the religious regulation of everyday life is pervasive, reveals how a common set of religious teachings and principles can be used to guide two different generational strategies for fertility regulation. The ethnographic data presented here highlight the creativity with which people use religious frameworks to justify their behavior. Research exploring how religion--and culture more broadly--influences fertility and contraceptive use should give greater attention to the dynamic interplay between cultural beliefs and institutions, social context, and interpretive agency.

[The teaching of social sciences in health: between practice and theory].  

PubMed

The models of teaching social sciences and clinical practice are insufficient for the needs of practical-reflective teaching of social sciences applied to health. The scope of this article is to reflect on the challenges and perspectives of social science education for health professionals. In the 1950s the important movement bringing together social sciences and the field of health began, however weak credentials still prevail. This is due to the low professional status of social scientists in health and the ill-defined position of the social sciences professionals in the health field. It is also due to the scant importance attributed by students to the social sciences, the small number of professionals and the colonization of the social sciences by the biomedical culture in the health field. Thus, the professionals of social sciences applied to health are also faced with the need to build an identity, even after six decades of their presence in the field of health. This is because their ambivalent status has established them as a partial, incomplete and virtual presence, requiring a complex survival strategy in the nebulous area between social sciences and health.

The Catholic Church is the largest (and arguably the best organized) single denomination in the United States, and it has extensive holdings in the health care field. It therefore has a material stake in the current debate over health care reform, as well as a moral interest in a question touching on the ethics of resource distribution. The position of the church on health care is analyzed as a case study of how organized religion interacts with and attempts to influence social policy in a pluralistic society. PMID:8689443

Current changes affecting education systems have impacted teaching work as a whole. The concept of teachers' and establishments' effectiveness was introduced to operationalise an approach that is dominated by the cost-benefit model. This article uses this premise to suggest an analysis of the social value of teaching work, and more specifically…

Corporate strategies for Catholic hospitals.  

PubMed

St. Louis University's Center for Health Services Education and Research has identified three general styles of corporate leadership in a study of 100 Catholic hospitals. The study found that "business as usual" organizations tended to be threatened by change and to base decisions on internal issues rather than external factors such as competition and environmental trends. They practiced consensus decision making and a traditional management style. Although these organizations promoted a cooperative spirit, they were highly vulnerable to crisis. The "beat them at their own game" institutions tended to be market conscious and future oriented and measured performance primarily in terms of the bottom line. Their ability to adapt to a changing environment enabled them to create feeder systems to keep occupancies high. Despite a strong esprit de corps, however, they failed to enlist employees' wholehearted support. Institutions with transformational strategies exhibited a strong mission commitment and used multiple measures of success, including market consciousness, employee satisfaction, quality of care, and profitability. Since each management style has strengths and weaknesses, executives and board members must carefully examine them in developing their own strategies. PMID:10271509

The Roman Catholic position on abortion.  

PubMed

This article presents the history and grounds of the official position of the Roman Catholic Church that abortion under any circumstances, including abortion to save the life of the mother, should be prohibited. After an introduction that deplores the lack of mercy shown to killers of abortionists while Catholic priests threatened by pro-abortion forces are not offered protection, the article traces the historic development of the Catholic abortion policy and rebuts arguments that abortion was permitted in the early Christian Church. The next section explains Catholic views on the personhood of a conceptus and refutes the contentions of Joseph Donceel that early abortion should be permitted because of uncertainty about the nature of the conceptus and the possibility of delayed animation. The fourth section of the paper debates the points raised by Susan Teft Nicholson who maintains that the Catholic position regarding abortion rests on the Church's animosity towards sexual pleasure. The paper goes on to criticize Nicholson's claims that the Roman Catholic position on abortion is inconsistent with the Church's own understanding of the Principle of Double Effect because the Church fails to allow abortion in many cases where it would be permissible under the Principle. Section 6 describes the underlying motive of the Roman Catholic Church's abortion position as an attempt to protect the innocent fetus from deliberate death and to justify the Church's application of protection from deliberate killing to those who are innocent of aggressive action. This discussion is followed by a justification of the Church's prohibition of abortion in cases of aggression, such as the aggression ascribed to a fetus when a pregnancy imperials the life of a mother. It is concluded that the US will likely legalize suicide and mercy killing as it has the killing of innocent fetuses who are probably ensouled with personhood and are not formal aggressors.

The Core Competencies: a Roman Catholic critique.  

PubMed

This article critically examines, from the perspective of a Roman Catholic Healthcare ethicist, the second edition of the Core Competencies for Healthcare Ethics Consultation report recently published by the American Society for Humanities and Bioethics. The question is posed: can the competencies identified in the report serve as the core competencies for Roman Catholic ethical consultants and consultation services? I answer in the negative. This incongruence stems from divergent concepts of what it means to do ethics consultation, a divergence that is rooted in each perspective's very different visions of autonomy. Furthermore, because of the constitutive elements of Catholic ethics consultation, such as the Ethical and Religious Directives for Health Care Services, the tradition needed to apply those directives, and the Catholic facility's membership in the institutional Church, the competencies needed for its practice differ in kind from those identified by the report. While there are many practical points of convergence, the competencies identified by the report should not be adopted uncritically by Catholic healthcare institutions as core competencies for ethical consultation services.

Putting the "social" Back in "socially Constructed": Revising the Teaching of Psychology as and in Collaboration  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This essay explores how two women teaching at a women's college worked together to foster and enact a radical revision of an upper-level developmental psychology course through two forms of collaboration. One form of collaboration was between the two faculty members, who work in different disciplines and embraced different pedagogical approaches, and the other was between one of those faculty members and her students. Written collaboratively as well, this essay describes the process of changing the course and includes both faculty members' and students' perspectives on those changes. The discussion of this process highlights the benefits of forging and sustaining vital connections between and among teachers, learners, and their subject matter.

Viewing imitation as child responsiveness: a link between teaching and discipline domains of socialization.  

PubMed

The authors observed 106 children's imitation and responses to maternal control at 14 and 22 months. Imitation was observed in a teaching task in which mothers modeled 3 standard pretend-play sequences. Responses to control were observed in typical discipline contexts. Girls imitated more than boys. Responsive imitation measures were coherent and longitudinally stable and correlated significantly with responsiveness to maternal control. The authors propose that a young child's willingness to imitate his or her parent in a teaching context and to comply in a control context both reflect a responsive or receptive stance toward parental socialization. The consistency of children's responsiveness across contexts has implications for both sociomoral and cognitive development. PMID:11269388

Pain relief: the perspective of Catholic tradition.  

PubMed

Efforts to study patient care from the perspective of Catholic ethics date back four centuries. In the course of this history, a prominent issue has always been management of pain and the efforts to avoid pain. Thus, Catholic theologians were concerned about the effects of pain medication upon the psychic function and considered whether or not hastening death for suffering people was allowed and the ethical norms for using opioids to remove pain when death is imminent. Moreover, the issue of "overmedication" for difficult or elderly patients has been a concern. The President's Commission on Ethics in Medicine and Human Research has utilized many of the principles developed by Catholic theologians when considering the matter of pain relief for dying persons.

Attitudes of Catholic religious orders towards children and adults with an intellectual disability in postcolonial Ireland.  

PubMed

Attitudes of Catholic religious orders towards children and adults with an intellectual disability in postcolonial Ireland The purpose of this paper is to examine the intersecting roles of Catholic religious orders and psychiatrists in the development of residential care for people with an intellectual disability in Ireland during the fifty-year period after political autonomy from the UK in 1922. The context is the postcolonial development of the country and the crucial role played by the Catholic Church through several of its religious orders in developing and staffing intellectual disability services. The paper will consider the divergent positions of church and psychiatry in the foundation and contemporary position of what was originally known as the care of people with a mental handicap nursing in the 1960s. The development of this form of nursing during the mid-twentieth century can be seen as part of a wider postcolonial response to health and social care by the newly independent Irish state. The author argues that intellectual disability nursing in Ireland has been nuanced by association with the nation's struggle for self-determination from colonial oppression through adoption of a religious identity. This conflation of education and social care combined with a specific form of Catholic nursing has left an enduring legacy on the service provision to people with an intellectual disability in contemporary Ireland.

Different habitus: different strategies in teaching physics? Relationships between teachers' social, economic and cultural capital and strategies in teaching physics in upper secondary school  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

With environmental awareness in the societies of today, political steering documents emphasize that all education should include sustainable development. But it seems to be others competing ideals for teaching physics, or why do the physics teachers teach as they do? Physics teachers in secondary school in Sweden have generally, been focused on facts and a strong link with scientific theories and concepts. In general, the curriculum sway the teaching, a standard text book in physics is used, the teaching is organized according to the book and the teacher deals with and demonstrates typical tasks on the whiteboard and group work is common for special issues related to tasks from the textbook or elaborating. The aim with this study is to analyze why physics teachers in upper secondary school choose to teach energy as they do. Data emerging from a questionnaire focused on indicators of the teachers' cultural and economic assets, or capital, according to the work of Pierre Bourdieu's sociology. Especially his concept on life styles and habitus provide a tool for analysis. We focus on physics teachers' positions in the social space, dispositions and standpoints towards the ideal way to teach physics in upper secondary school (n = 268). Our response rate is 29 % and due to the low response rate a non response bias analysis was made. In our analysis we primarily sought for groups, with a cluster analysis based on the teaching practice, revealed common features for both what and how they teach and three different teaching types emerged. Then we reconstructed the group habitus of the teachers by analyzing dispositions and standpoints and related those to the specific polarization of sacred values, that is struggles about the natural order (doxa) in the social space of science education, which is a part of and has boundaries to dominating fields like the natural sciences and the political fields (curriculum etc.). Three teacher-groups' habituses are described and analyzed; (1) The Manager of the Traditional, (2) The Challenger for Technology and (3) The Challenger for Citizenship. By constructing the habitus of the teachers in the different groups we can explain why teachers teach as they do and thereby make a contribution to both science education research and to teaching training, whereas reflective approach which also includes the individual dispositions and representations are paramount. In our paper we elaborate the grounds and implications of these findings further.

Catholic Nursing Sisters and Brothers and Racial Justice in Mid-20th-Century America  

PubMed Central

This historical article considers nursing’s work for social justice in the 1960s civil rights movement through the lens of religious sisters and brothers who advocated for racial equality. The article examines Catholic nurses’ work with African Americans in the mid-20th century that took place amid the prevailing social conditions of poverty and racial disempowerment, conditions that were linked to serious health consequences. Historical methodology is used within the framework of “bearing witness,” a term often used in relation to the civil rights movement and one the sisters themselves employed. Two situations involving nurses in the mid-20th century are examined: the civil rights movement in Selma, Alabama, and the actions for racial justice in Chicago, Illinois. The thoughts and actions of Catholic sister and brother nurses in the mid-20th century are chronicled, including those few sister nurses who stepped outside their ordinary roles in an attempt to change an unjust system entirely.

For-profit and Catholic: how would the ministry fare?  

PubMed

Let's begin with Catholic identity. When is something entitled to be called Catholic in any official sense? I would suggest that there are three requirements. First of all, the entity must assert and claim its identity as Catholic by some sort of public declaration. By way of counter-example, in early 2012, a major West Coast health system renamed itself Dignity Health and asserted that it is no longer Catholic. According to Dignity Health's Jan. 23 press release, it is a "not-for-profit organization, rooted in the Catholic tradition, but is not an official ministry of the Catholic Church". Secondly, this Catholic identity has to be validated by Catholic Church authority, usually the bishop of the place, but sometimes by a dicastery in Rome. There is not really a formal procedure for this. Typically, a religious congregation founds an organizational ministry with the implicit, if not explicit, consent of the bishop and has it listed in the Catholic directory of PMID:22905409

Assessing the psychosocial environment of science classes in Catholic secondary schools  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Much Catholic school and church rhetoric suggests that Catholic schools possess distinctive learning environments. Research into this aspect of Catholic schooling has been hampered by the lack of an appropriate assessment instrument. By drawing on contemporary church literature, the perceptions of personnel involved in Catholic education and existing classroom environment questionnaires, a new instrument was developed to assess student perceptions of classroom psychosocial environment in Catholic schools. The use of this instrument in 64 classrooms in Catholic and Government schools indicated significant differences on some scales. The distinctive nature of Catholic schooling did not extend to all classroom environment dimensions deemed important to Catholic education.

The Elements of Teaching Nonscientists: Make it Conceptual, Social, Modern, and Interactive  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Physics literacy for all students should be a top priority for every physics department. Reasons include each department's self-interest, and the health of our profession. But most importantly, as the American Association for the Adancement of Science puts it, "Without a scientifically literate population, the outlook for a better world is not promising." Because nonscientists have little need and less desire for algebra-based physics problems, these courses should be conceptual (non-algebraic) although they should certainly be numerate. Since 1976, I have developed and taught a course of this type that includes most of the major principles of physics. Its success has stemmed from (1) a conceptual approach, (2) inclusion of relevant societal topics such as energy resources, scientific methodology, pseudoscience, global warming, and technological risk, (3) modern physics topics that occupy 50instruction techniques even in (especially in!) classes of over 200. I will describe this course and present interactive teaching ideas for one socially relevant topic: transportation and energy efficiency.

Social cultural and situative perspective of studying emotions in teaching and learning: characteristics, challenges and opportunities  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this forum, I take a learning sciences perspective to examine the paper by Bellocchi, Ritchie, Tobin, Sandhu and Sandhu ( Cultural Studies of Science Education, doi: 10.1007/s11422-013-9526-3 , 2013) titled "Examining emotional climate of preservice science teacher education." I characterize their approach as a social cultural and situative perspective of studying emotions in teaching and learning. Such an approach overcomes the limitations of examining emotions as individual psychological constructs, but it also incurs other methodological challenges. I suggest an alternative approach of examining the individual's emotions, as well as their aggregates as a group measure. This approach allows us to study variations in emotional outcomes at an individual level or at a group level. I also suggest examining interplay of emotions with other aspects of learning outcomes, for example, cognitive learning outcomes. Finally, I suggest studying development of meta-emotional knowledge among teachers as another fertile area of research that could benefit the teachers in their classroom practices.

Condoms, HIV and the Roman Catholic Church.  

PubMed

For decades, the Roman Catholic Church opposed use of condoms to prevent spread of sexually transmitted infections (STI) because of their contraceptive effect. In 2009, Pope Benedict XVI said that widespread use of condoms could worsen the situation, a position rejected as 'unscientific'. Recently, however the Pontiff stated that because the Church considers acts of prostitution and homosexuality to be gravely immoral and disordered, in such specific cases use of a condom might become an initial step in the direction of a moralization leading to an assumption of responsibility and a new awareness of the meaning of sexuality. In doing so, he reaffirmed his belief that condoms cannot solve the problem of STI spread, stressing the Church's position that modern societies no longer see sexuality as an 'expression of love, but only as a sort of drug that people administer to themselves'. The new Papal position has been widely applauded, but made conservative Catholics unhappy. A dialogue with the Church now seems possible: Does concentrating on condoms hinder the effectiveness of other strategies? What are the respective roles of condoms and other approaches to prevent infection spread? Does a special situation exist in Africa requiring specific and focused interventions? PMID:21507723

Evaluation of pharmacy information system in teaching, private and social services Hospitals in 2011  

PubMed Central

Objective: Supporting a therapeutic approach and medication therapy management, the pharmacy information system (PIS) acts as one of the pillars of hospital information system. This ensures that medication therapy is being supported with an optimal level of safety and quality similar to other treatments and services. Materials and Methods: The present study is an applied, cross-sectional study conducted on the PIS in use in selected hospitals. The research population included all users of PIS. The research sample is the same as the research population. The data collection instrument was the self-designed checklist developed from the guidelines of the American Society of Health System Pharmacists, Australia pharmaceutical Society and Therapeutic guidelines of the Drug Commission of the German Medical Association. The checklist validity was assessed by research supervisors and PIS users and pharmacists. Findings: The findings of this study were revealed that regarding the degree of meeting the standards given in the guidelines issued by the Society of Pharmacists, the highest rank in observing input standards belonged to Social Services hospitals with a mean score of 32.75. Although teaching hospitals gained the highest score both in process standards with a mean score of 29.15 and output standards with a mean score of 43.95, the private hospitals had the lowest mean score of 23.32, 17.78, 24.25 in input, process and output standards, respectively. Conclusion: Based on the findings, it can be claimed that the studied hospitals had a minimal compliance with the input, output and processing standards related to the PIS.

Can Web 2.0 and Social Software Help Transform How We Measure Quality in Teaching, Learning, and Research?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This paper focuses on the issue of quality in teaching, learning, and research. In the second section, the paper looks at the different ways technology is being used to learn and at the changing expectations of learners leading to pressures for transformations in both pedagogy and institutional structures. The third section proposes a new rhizomatic model of learning. The following section "Quality Frameworks: Perception and Reality" suggests that traditional measures of the quality of teaching, learning, and research have been hijacked by the commodification of education. This is explored further in Section "The Commodification of Education and Its Impact on How We Measure Quality". Section "How will Web 2.0 and Social Software Change our Understandings and Measurement of Quality?" looks at how Web 2.0 and social software can provide opportunities of new ways of measuring the quality of learning through embedding quality measures within the processes of teaching and learning and knowledge development. Sections "What is the Purpose of Traditional Assessment Measures?" and "Critiques of Assessment Processes" provide a critique of traditional assessment processes and suggest the need to move from the assessment of learning to assessment for learning. Section "Personal Learning Environments and Assessment for Learning Through Authentic Learning Tasks" looks at how personal learning environment can be used to support authentic learning and assessment for learning. The conclusion suggests that the development of new quality processes will require fundamental rethinking of the purpose and role of universities.

Teaching critical health literacy in the US as a means to action on the social determinants of health.  

PubMed

In spite of improvements in global health over the 20th century, health inequities are increasing. Mounting evidence suggests that reducing health inequities requires taking action on the social determinants of health (SDOH), which include income, education, employment, political empowerment and other factors. This paper introduces an alternative health education curriculum, developed by the US-based non-profit organization Just Health Action, which teaches critical health literacy as a step towards empowering people to achieve health equity. Critical health literacy is defined as an individual's understanding of the SDOH combined with the skills to take action at both the individual and the community level. Prior to describing our curricular framework, we connect the recommendations of the World Health Organization Commission on the SDOH with the objectives of the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion by arguing that achieving them is reliant on critical health literacy. Then we describe our four-part curricular framework for teaching critical health literacy. Part 1, Knowledge, focuses on teaching the SDOH and the paradigm of health as a human right. Part 2, Compass, refers to activities that help students find their own direction as a social change agent. Part 3, Skills, refers to teaching specific advocacy tools and strategies. Part 4, Action, refers to the development and implementation of an action intended to increase health equity by addressing the SDOH. We describe activities that we use to motivate, engage and empower students to take action on the SDOH and provide examples of advocacy skills students have learned and actions they have implemented.

Divergent practices among Catholic hospitals in provision of direct sterilization  

PubMed Central

Background The Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Catholic Care Services (ERDs) are designed to promote uniform practice of health care in accordance with human and Catholic values. The aim of this study was to determine whether the ERDs are being uniformly interpreted and applied. Directive 53 prohibits the provision of direct sterilization. Hospital data were reviewed to determine whether direct sterilizations on women are being performed within Catholic hospitals and their frequency. A significant diversity of practice regarding sterilization would indicate that the ERDs are not uniformly interpreted and applied by Catholic hospitals in the United States. Methods All Catholic hospitals in seven states—California, Illinois, Indiana, New Jersey, New York, Texas, and Washington—were studied to determine whether diversity of practice existed in the provision of direct female sterilization. Inpatient discharge data were requested from the respective departments of health for each state for three years (2007–2009). Data from 1,734 hospitals, secular and Catholic, within the states were procured and analyzed. Results Of the hospitals from the seven states, 239 Catholic hospitals were identified of which 176 provided obstetric services. The patient records of these 176 hospitals were searched for those records containing the diagnostic code from the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) coding system for sterilization for contraceptive management. Eighty-five or 48 percent of these hospitals provided a total of 20,073 direct sterilizations in violation of the ERDs. The entire results of the study are available on the website catholichospitals.org. Conclusion There is a significant diversity of practice in the provision of direct female sterilization within Catholic hospitals. Such diversity of practice indicates that there is no uniform interpretation or application of the ERDs by Catholic hospitals. Uniformity could be fostered if the ERDs mandated best practices for accountability and made use of the ICD-9-CM codes where possible to monitor actual practices. In the case of direct sterilizations reference to ICD-9-CM codes in the ERDs would minimize subjective criteria in the implementation of the ERDs.
