Extracting Surveillance Data from Templated Sections of an Electronic Medical Note: Challenges and Opportunities  

PubMed Central

Objective To highlight the importance of templates in extracting surveillance data from the free text of electronic medical records using natural language processing (NLP) techniques. Introduction The main stay of recording patient data is the free text of electronic medical records (EMR). While stating the chief complaint and history of presenting illness in the patients ‘own words’, the rest of the electronic note is written by the provider in their words. Providers often use boiler-plate templates from EMR pull-downs to document information on the patient in the form of checklists, check boxes, yes/no and free text responses to questions. When these templates are used for recording symptoms, demographic information or medical, social or travel history, they represent an important source of surveillance data [1]. There is a dearth of literature on the use of natural language processing in extracting data from templates in the EMR. Methods A corpus of 1000 free text medical notes from the VA integrated electronic medical record (CPRS) was reviewed to identify commonly used templates. Of these, 500 were enriched for the surveillance domain of interest for this project (homelessness). The other 500 were randomly sampled from a large corpus of electronic notes. An NLP algorithm was developed to extract concepts related to our target surveillance domain. A manual review of the notes was performed by three human reviewers to generate a document-level reference standard that classified this set of documents as either demonstrating evidence of homelessness (H) or not (NH). A rule-based NLP algorithm was developed that used a combination of key word searches and negation based on an extensive lexicon of terms developed for this purpose. A random sample of 50 documents each of H and NH documents were reviewed after each iteration of the NLP algorithm to determine the false positive rate of the extracted concepts. Results The corpus consisted of 48% H and 52% NH documents as determined by human review. The NLP algorithm successfully extracted concepts from these documents. The H set had an average of 8 concepts related to homelessness per document (median 8, range 1 to 34). The NH set had an average 2 concepts (median 1, range 1 to 13)”. Thirteen template patterns were identified in this set of documents. The three most common were check boxes with square brackets, Yes/No and free text answer after a question. Several positively and negatively asserted concepts were noted to be in the responses to templated questions such as “Are you currently homeless: Yes or No”; “How many times have you been homeless in the past 3 years: (free text response)”; “Have you ever been in jail? [Y] or [N]”; Are you in need of substance abuse services? Yes or No”. Human review of a random sample of documents at the concept level indicated that the NLP algorithm generated 28% false positives in extracting concepts related to homelessness when templates were ignored among the H documents. When the algorithm was refined to include templates, the false positive rate declined to 22%. For the NH documents, the corresponding false positive rates were 56% and 21%. Conclusions To our knowledge, this is one of the first attempts to address the problem of information extraction from templates or templated sections of the EMR. A key challenge of templates is that they will most likely lead to poor performance of NLP algorithms and cause bottlenecks in processing if they are not considered. Acknowledging the presence of templates and refining NLP algorithms to handle them improves information extraction from free text medical notes, thus creating an opportunity for improved surveillance using the EMR. Algorithms will likely need to be customized to the electronic medical record and the surveillance domain of interest. A more detailed analysis of the templated sections is underway.

Nutrition-related knowledge, attitudes, and dietary behaviors among head start teachers in Texas: a cross-sectional study.  

PubMed

Head Start teachers are responsible for providing nutrition education to over 1 million low-income children annually, yet little is known about their nutrition-related knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors. The purpose of this study is to assess the self-reported nutrition knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors among Head Start teachers from one urban Head Start organization in Harris County, TX. A cross-sectional, descriptive analysis was conducted using baseline surveys in the 2008-2009 school year. One hundred eighty-one Head Start teachers completed self-reported surveys of their nutrition knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, weight status, and other weight-related behaviors. The sample was predominantly female (97%) and minority (93%); 24% were overweight and 55% were obese. One fourth of the sample did not consume fruit (26%) or vegetables (23%) the previous day. Half of the teachers reported consuming french fries (52%) and soda (44%), and one fourth consumed fried meat (28%) at least once on the previous day. Only four teachers (3%) answered at least four of the five nutrition knowledge questions correctly. Half of the teachers (54%) agreed that it was hard to know which nutrition information to believe, and only 9% reported that their nutrition habits were healthy. A majority of teachers were trying to lose weight (71%) and said they would like to weigh less (81%). This study underscores the importance of providing nutrition education and wellness opportunities to Head Start teachers to better enable them to teach nutrition education to their students and to improve their own health.

Individual and contextual covariates of burnout: a cross-sectional nationwide study of French teachers  

PubMed Central

Background Limited information on the covariates of burnout syndrome in French teachers is available. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relative contributions of individual and contextual factors on the three burnout dimensions: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and reduced personal accomplishment. Methods The source data come from an epidemiological postal survey on physical and mental health conducted in 2005 among 20,099 education workers (in activity or retired) selected at random from the health plan records of the national education system. The response rate was 52.4%. Teachers in activity currently giving classes to students who participated in the survey (n = 3,940) were invited to complete a self-administered questionnaire including the Maslach Burnout Inventory. 2,558 teachers provided complete data (64.9%). Variables associated with high emotional exhaustion (highest quartile of score), high depersonalization (highest quartile), and reduced personal accomplishment (lowest quartile) were evaluated using multivariate logistic regression. Studied variables referred to demographic characteristics, socio-professional environment, job dissatisfaction, experienced difficulties at work, and teaching motivations. Results Different variables were associated with each burnout dimension. Female teachers were more susceptible to high emotional exhaustion and reduced personal accomplishment, whereas male teachers were more susceptible to high depersonalization. Elementary school teachers were more susceptible to high emotional exhaustion, but less susceptible to high depersonalization and reduced personal accomplishment than their higher school level counterparts. Experienced difficulties with pupils were associated with all three dimensions. A socio-economically underprivileged school neighbourhood was also related to high emotional exhaustion and high depersonalization. Conclusion Programs to enhance teaching environment might be an interesting approach to try to prevent burnout. It would be useful to take the different dimensions into account in planning the intervention. PMID:19744328

Second-career teachers  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Last month we saw that the age distribution for high school physics teachers skewed older than that of all teachers. We also noted that, even though they are older, at least three-fourths of the high school physics teachers indicated that they planned to teach high school for at least six more years. The figure shows the age and years of teaching experience for high school physics teachers. We see that almost 12% of the teachers who are 50 years old or older have five years or fewer of teaching experience. Thus, these are likely second-career teachers. The typical age range for second-career teachers is 33 to 59. However, the younger second-career teachers are more difficult to isolate because the average duration of the previous career is one and one-half to three years. In the December issue, we will look at teaching activities physics teachers use in the classroom, Susan White is Research Manager in the Statistical Research Center at the American Institute of Physics; she directs the Nationwide Survey of High School Physics Teachers.

Teachers' Domain: Barfing Pumpkin  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

This 2-minute video demonstrates chemical reaction in an amusing and highly visual way. Water, dish soap, and potassium iodide are mixed and placed inside a carved plastic pumpkin. Hydrogen peroxide is added last. The reaction is immediate and dramatic: soap bubbles come pouring out of the mouth, nose and eyes of the pumpkin. Resource also includes teacher's guide and assessment. Editor's Note: In a chemical reaction, properties of the original substances change as new substances with different properties are formed. The molecular structure of the substances is altered irreversibly. This video is part of "Lessons in Matter and Energy" by WOSU Public Media.

Addressing the Teacher Qualification Gap: Exploring the Use and Efficacy of Incentives to Reward Teachers for Tough Assignments  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

This paper explores the policy options that might be used to address the distribution of teachers across students. The first section discusses findings on teacher preferences, the dynamics of the teacher labor market, and whether we should care about the resulting distribution of teachers across students. The next section focuses on the magnitude of teacher inequity, followed by an exploration of how inequities develop and a discussion of what we know about the various policy options designed to address teacher inequities. Based on this information, the final section focuses on the politics of reform and makes policy recommendations for addressing the teacher qualification gap.

It concerns `doing quantum mechanics using only pictures of lines, squares, triangles and diamonds'. This picture calculus can be seen as a very substantial extension of Dirac's notation, and has a purely algebraic counterpart in terms of so-called Strongly Compact Closed Categories (introduced by Abramsky and I in quant-ph/0402130 and [4]) which subsumes my Logic of Entanglement quant-ph/0402014.

Progress notes model.  

PubMed Central

The largest part of the medical record today consists of notes documenting the care delivered to patients and the clinical events relevant to diagnosis and treatment. These "progress notes" serve as the repository of medical facts and clinical thinking, and are intended as a concise vehicle of communication about a patient's condition to those who access the health record. They should be readable, easily understood, complete, accurate, and concise. They must also be flexible enough to logically convey to others what happened during an encounter, e.g., the chain of events during the visit, as well as guaranteeing full accountability for documented material, e.g., who recorded the information and when it was recorded. This paper describes a model for progress notes, which addresses the above needs, and outlines the rationale and principles which led to that model. PMID:9357579

Lecture notes for criticality safety  

SciTech Connect

These lecture notes for criticality safety are prepared for the training of Department of Energy supervisory, project management, and administrative staff. Technical training and basic mathematics are assumed. The notes are designed for a two-day course, taught by two lecturers. Video tapes may be used at the options of the instructors. The notes provide all the materials that are necessary but outside reading will assist in the fullest understanding. The course begins with a nuclear physics overview. The reader is led from the macroscopic world into the microscopic world of atoms and the elementary particles that constitute atoms. The particles, their masses and sizes and properties associated with radioactive decay and fission are introduced along with Einstein`s mass-energy equivalence. Radioactive decay, nuclear reactions, radiation penetration, shielding and health-effects are discussed to understand protection in case of a criticality accident. Fission, the fission products, particles and energy released are presented to appreciate the dangers of criticality. Nuclear cross sections are introduced to understand the effectiveness of slow neutrons to produce fission. Chain reactors are presented as an economy; effective use of the neutrons from fission leads to more fission resulting in a power reactor or a criticality excursion. The six-factor formula is presented for managing the neutron budget. This leads to concepts of material and geometric buckling which are used in simple calculations to assure safety from criticality. Experimental measurements and computer code calculations of criticality are discussed. To emphasize the reality, historical criticality accidents are presented in a table with major ones discussed to provide lessons-learned. Finally, standards, NRC guides and regulations, and DOE orders relating to criticality protection are presented.

Lecture notes for criticality safety  

SciTech Connect

These lecture notes for criticality safety are prepared for the training of Department of Energy supervisory, project management, and administrative staff. Technical training and basic mathematics are assumed. The notes are designed for a two-day course, taught by two lecturers. Video tapes may be used at the options of the instructors. The notes provide all the materials that are necessary but outside reading will assist in the fullest understanding. The course begins with a nuclear physics overview. The reader is led from the macroscopic world into the microscopic world of atoms and the elementary particles that constitute atoms. The particles, their masses and sizes and properties associated with radioactive decay and fission are introduced along with Einstein's mass-energy equivalence. Radioactive decay, nuclear reactions, radiation penetration, shielding and health-effects are discussed to understand protection in case of a criticality accident.

Inventions of Note  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The Inventions of Note Sheet Music Collection was created in 1997 by the Lewis Music Library at MIT. It includes popular songs and piano compositions that portray technologies as revealed through song texts and cover art. As the introductory notes state, "The initial appearance of inventions such as the automobile, airplane, radio, and telephone created a myriad of responses in American society ranging from excitement and delight to anxiety and scorn." The collection includes 50 pieces of sheet music, ranging from "The Bell Telephone Girl" to "The Wireless Man." This last piece contains lyrics like "With his brave steady hand/keeps in touch with the land." It's interesting to ruminate on what songs today might celebrate in video game systems, wireless mobile devices, and laptop computers. For students of the history of technology and popular culture, this site is quite a find and perhaps it will inspire a few sing-a-long sessions for those with a talent for vocalizing.

Nuer Field Notes  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The complicated process of creating meaningful field notes is a problem that vexes many scholars who rely on these important primary documents, including anthropologists, geographers, and sociologists. Currently, there aren't many websites that feature digital archives of fieldnotes, but this joint project undertaken by Indiana University and the University of Michigan is one step in the right direction. The essential goal of the project is to make the linguistic field notes recorded by Eleanor Vandevort (a missionary and researcher) in the South Sudan between 1949 and 1963 available on the web. The digital archive succeeds mightily, as it includes the linguistic field notes, and also photographs from her work there, various letters from the field, and a biographical sketch of her work there in the South Sudan. Along with these materials, visitors can read Vandevort's book about her time in Africa, titled _A Leopard Tamed_ and some fine essays on the history of colonial and missionary linguistics in the Sudan by Edward Miner.

Editor's Note: Literacy Skills  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Our science and literacy issue is always one of the most popular issues of the year, and we're betting this jam-packed issue will be no exception. Why? There are many probable reasons. Many elementary teachers are more comfortable with teaching science literacy so they look for ways to use their strengths. No Child Left Behind legislation has put the spotlight on literacy in the elementary grades, sometimes pushing science (and social studies and PE and art) out of the busy day. Teaching science with literacy skills may be one way to convey important science skills while still teaching and reinforcing literacy.

School climate and teachers' beliefs and attitudes associated with implementation of the positive action program: a diffusion of innovations model.  

PubMed

Teacher- and school-level factors influence the fidelity of implementation of school-based prevention and social character and development (SACD) programs. Using a diffusion of innovations framework, the relationships among teacher beliefs and attitudes towards a prevention/SACD program and the influence of a school's administrative support and perceptions of school connectedness, characteristics of a school's climate, were specified in two cross-sectional mediation models of program implementation. Implementation was defined as the amount of the programs' curriculum delivered (e.g., lessons taught), and use of program-specific materials in the classroom (e.g., ICU boxes and notes) and in relation to school-wide activities (e.g., participation in assemblies). Teachers from 10 elementary schools completed year-end process evaluation reports for year 2 (N = 171) and 3 (N = 191) of a multi-year trial. Classroom and school-wide material usage were each favorably associated with the amount of the curriculum delivered, which were associated with teachers' attitudes toward the program which, in turn, were related to teachers' beliefs about SACD. These, in turn, were associated with teachers' perceptions of school climate. Perceptions of school climate were indirectly related to classroom material usage and both indirectly and directly related to the use of school-wide activities. Program developers need to consider the importance of a supportive environment on program implementation and attempt to incorporate models of successful school leadership and collaboration among teachers that foster a climate promoting cohesiveness, shared visions, and support.

Qualities of an effective teacher: what do medical teachers think?  

PubMed Central

Background Effective teaching in medicine is essential to produce good quality doctors. A number of studies have attempted to identify the characteristics of an effective teacher. However, most of literature regarding an effective medical teacher includes student ratings or expert opinions. Furthermore, interdisciplinary studies for the same are even fewer. We did a cross-sectional study of the characteristics of effective teachers from their own perspective across medicine and dentistry disciplines. Methods A questionnaire comprising of 24 statements relating to perceived qualities of effective teachers was prepared and used. The study population included the faculty of medicine and dentistry at the institution. Respondents were asked to mark their response to each statement based on a 5-point Likert scale ranging from strongly disagree to strongly agree. These statements were grouped these into four main subgroups, viz. Class room behaviour/instructional delivery, interaction with students, personal qualities and professional development, and analysed with respect to discipline, cultural background, gender and teaching experience using SPSS v 13.0. For bivariate analysis, t-test and one way ANOVA were used. Multiple linear regression for multivariate analysis was used to control confounding variables. Results The top three desirable qualities of an effective teacher in our study were knowledge of subject, enthusiasm and communication skills. Faculty with longer teaching experienced ranked classroom behaviour/instructional delivery higher than their less experienced counterparts. There was no difference of perspectives based on cultural background, gender or discipline (medicine and dentistry). Conclusion This study found that the faculty perspectives were similar, regardless of the discipline, gender and cultural background. Furthermore, on review of literature similar findings are seen in studies done in allied medical and non-medical fields. These findings support common teacher training programs for the teachers of all disciplines, rather than having separate training programs exclusively for medical teachers. Logistically, this would make it much easier to arrange such programs in universities or colleges with different faculties or disciplines. PMID:24044727

Preparing Teachers  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

For too long colleges and universities have avoided looking critically at their teacher-preparation programs, choosing instead to be comfortable with âbusiness as usual.â We need a dramatic shift in the role of these institutions. It begins when the incoming freshman arrives on campus and does not end four years later. We need to âerase the slateâ and redirect our focus on the real goal of achieving increased student achievement in our K-12 schools. My presentation will include a challenge to all of us to re-think who we are preparing science teachers for our nation's very serious task of significantly increasing student achievement and a roadmap for successful change.

Awareness of autism in primary school teachers.  

PubMed

Objective. To assess the knowledge and perception of primary school teachers regarding autism in private and public schools of Karachi, Pakistan. Methods. A cross-sectional survey was conducted on primary school teachers in different districts of Karachi. A sample size of 170 teachers was selected by purposive sampling. Primary data was collected using self-administered questionnaires. These questions assessed the teacher's knowledge and perception of Autism. Data was entered on SPSS version 20. Frequencies and percentages were taken out for categorical variables. Results. Of the total 170 teachers, 85 were from the Private and 85 from Public sector schools. 55% (n = 94) of the teachers knew about Autism through the media and only 9% (n = 15) had formal training through workshops on Autism. 62% (n = 105) of the teachers were of the opinion that Autism is treatable. Majority of the teachers (57%) said that proper training is required for teaching autistic children. Conclusion. The knowledge related to Autism in our existing sample has mostly come from the media. Although we cannot undermine the role of media, there is a need to give formal training to teachers regarding the differentiating features of Autism, which in turn will aid in early diagnosis of the disease.

A case study of a mathematics teacher's and science teacher's use of teacher wisdom in integrating middle school mathematics and science content  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The National Science Education Standards, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Curriculum Standards, the Interdisciplinary Team Organization structure and the Middle School movement collectively suggest to teachers to make connections between their subject areas. This case study of a middle school mathematics teacher and science teacher utilizes the framework of teacher wisdom to bring a unique perspective to the process of developing and implementing integrated curriculum. Data collection consisted of interviews with the teachers, students, and their principal; documents such lesson plans, team meeting minutes and teacher journal entries; and field notes acquired within team meetings and classroom instruction. The interpretations of this study reveal that teacher development of integrated curriculum occurs in two ways: naturally and intentionally. The natural label used to describe when teachers comfortably share information that could serve as connections between subjects. The intentional label used to describe when the teachers purposely plan integrated lessons and units. These findings also provide an image of middle school integration. This image exhibits more than connections between subject area content; it also shows connections with away-from-school skills and events, lifeskills, and lifelong guidelines. Although these teachers found it frustrating and overwhelming to meet the many views of integration, they assembled integration curriculum that followed their philosophy of education, coincided with their personal characteristics and met the needs of their students. The interpretations of this study reveal a new model of middle school integration. Teachers can use this model as a collection of integration examples. Integration researchers can use this model as a conceptual framework to analyze the integration efforts of middle level teachers. Additional research needs to focus on: developing new modeling and evaluation tools for teachers, evaluating middle school professional development programs, investigating middle school teachers' characteristics, and continuing the study of integration's worth. The results of this study and additional research may help: (a) administrators to target specific teachers for middle school positions, (b) educators to plan and implement new programs for inservice and preservice middle school teachers, and (c) teachers to experiment with new and innovative strategies for middle school integration.

As science teacher educators who work with and study the development of beginning teachers, the authors found the support offered knowingly and unknowingly by the teacher next door was a critical factor in assisting the new teacher (Luft and Roehrig 2006). Other research has expanded on this and found that support creates a positive learning and teaching environment and contributes to the development of the new teacher (Dangel 2006). Experienced science teachers can use the research-based strategies presented in this article to assist beginning science teachers.

NOTES. Study on patients' perspective  

PubMed Central

Introduction Rapid development of minimally invasive surgery has led to escalation of the demands placed on health care professionals. Nowadays the patient is the one to choose where and how she/he wants to be operated on. Perioperative and postoperative quality of life is the most common item impacting the patients’ choice. Laparoscopic surgery is undoubtedly advantageous in several applications; however a further improvement of medical services has been introduced: the NOTES technique. This novel surgical approach definitively eliminates the problem of having scars. Though NOTES is still in the clinical trial stage, it might become an alternative for selected procedures soon. At this point it is necessary to define the patients’ expectations and preferences. Aim To evaluate patients’ opinions on the four surgical approaches: open, laparoscopic, transvaginal and transgastric. Material and methods For this purpose a special questionnaire was designed and one hundred randomly selected women were asked to complete it. Results The laparoscopic access was preferable in most aspects, closely followed by the transvaginal access. Open and transgastric approaches were considered as dangerous and disadvantageous. Conclusions Currently NOTES is a possible reality of tomorrow for some procedures. The transvaginal access was scored as “attractive”, “cosmetically attractive” and “technologically advanced”, as opposed to the transgastric access. The fact of manipulation in the intimate region requires thorough attention in future NOTES studies. Though the patients currently prefer the laparoscopic approach, this study proves that further development of transvaginal NOTES technology is acceptable and to some extent desired by the patients.

The influence of different counterions (F-, Cl-, Br-, I-) on the electric surface properties ("permanent" dipole moment and electric polarizability) of beta-FeOOH ellipsoid particles in dilute aqueous dispersions is studied by electric light scattering method and electrophoresis. An additional longitudinal permanent dipole moment appears with the increase of ionic strength for all added counterions, but is most pronounced in the case of I- ions. The additional orientation moment is most likely due to the distortion of the counterions' distribution close to the particle surface. PMID:9028909

Editor's Note: Windows Into Understanding  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

In this month's column, the editor reflects on how teacher programs in the early 1980s gave little attention to assessment. The assumption was that end-of-chapter tests in textbooks and standardized state tests provided a good idea of student understanding and knowledge. But things have changed. Today, state and national standards promote a more challenging and rigorous curriculum. Assessment is now seen as an ongoing process that provides a window into student understanding.

Perspectives: Mentoring New Teachers  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Beginning teachers have much to learn about teaching (Odell 1990), including navigating their own classrooms and learning new school procedures and policies. Mentors can assist beginning teachers in making the difficult transition from student to teacher. Smith and Ingersoll (2004) examined data from a national survey and found that beginning teachers who had the support of mentors and well-planned induction programs experienced increased job satisfaction and self-efficacy. This month's column describes how experienced teachers can be effective mentors and the benefits of a mentor-mentee relationship that can obtained as a result.

NEWS: Teachers' Awards 2001  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Every year, as the result of an Education Group initiative, the UK Institute of Physics honours a small number of practising teachers in both the primary and secondary sectors. Nominations come from a variety of sources: students, pupils, head teachers, colleagues, governors, advisers, Institute branches and parents. Selection is by a panel of teachers and former teachers, people fully aware of the real work and rewards of being a teacher. To qualify for a Teacher's Award there is one basic criterion: is this person an exceptional teacher? It is not a competition, merely a wish to spotlight and celebrate the work of physics teachers in the classroom. This year nine awards were made, one for primary science and the rest for teaching physics in secondary schools and colleges. This was a higher number than in previous years and reflects the increased number of nominations received. If you know of a teacher who deserves recognition then please tell us. We are looking for teachers who inspire in their students a love of science (at the primary level) or physics (at the secondary level). We would particularly welcome more nominations from the primary sector. If you, or any of your children or relatives, can think of such a teacher then please contact Steven Chapman (Steven.Chapman@iop.org) for more details or a nomination form.

Note on the Spectral Theorem

In this note, we show that the spectral theorem, has two representations; the Stone-von Neumann representation and one based on the polar decomposition of linear operators, which we call the deformed representation. The deformed representation has the advantage that it provides an easy extension to all closed densely defined linear operators on Hilbert space. Furthermore, the deformed representation can also be extended all separable reflexive Banach spaces and has a limited extension to non-reflexive Banach spaces.
