The aim of the Handbook of Social Indicators and Quality of Life Research is to create an overview of the field of Quality of Life (QOL) studies in the early years of the 21 st century that can be updated and improved upon as the field evolves and the century unfolds.Social indicators are statistical time series "...used to monitor the social system, helping to identify changes and to guide intervention to alter the course of social change". Examples include unemployment rates, crime rates, estimates of life expectancy, health status indices, school enrollment rates, average achievement scores, election voting rates, and measures of subjective well-being such as satisfaction with life-as-a-whole and with specific domains or aspects of life.This book provides a review of the historical development of the field including the history of QOL in medicine and mental health as well as the research related to quality-of-work-life (QWL) programs. It discusses several of QOL main concepts: happiness, positive psychology, and subjective wellbeing. Relations between spirituality and religiousness and QOL are examined as are the effects of educational attainment on QOL and marketing, and the associations with economic growth. The book goes on to investigate methodological approaches and issues that should be considered in measuring and analysing quality of life from a quantitative perspective. The final chapters are dedicated to research on elements of QOL in a broad range of countries and populations.

Educating the Nation on a Shrinking Budget

The economic issues facing the higher education industry are becoming more relevant in a contracting national economy. The United States is underperforming in higher education and the global competitiveness and the interdependent nature of the world demand that the nation make postsecondary education more accessible to greater numbers of people than ever before. The needs of our diverse population call for an examination of the state policy interventions to increase college enrollment among low-income and minorities who are underrepresented in higher education. Diminishing budgets for postsecondary education dictate the need for greater efficiency in the use of declining resources. States need to determine the most effective and efficient policies to allocate the limited funds and revenues available to them, and provide increased access to higher education for a larger portion of the population to contribute to new innovations, attract new businesses, and compete for higher paying jobs.

Education in developing countries
49,00 € *

This book explores education in developing countries. The Case study was based in Kenya. Some of the issues discussed include: The enrollment rate in girls secondary schools is on the increase as compared to enrollment rate in boys secondary schools although there exists gender disparity. Majority of households have insufficient income to cater for secondary education of the siblings. The cost of secondary education is unaffordable to many households. Many households prefer educating a boy child at the expense of a girl child. A high number of orphans due to HIV and AIDS calls for external assistance from households. External aids such as Constituency Development Fund (CDF), sponsorship and school-based bursary have assisted some needy students. The level of education of the household head influences access to secondary education of their children. Therefore, households should be sensitized by the government on the importance of giving equal opportunity to both boys and girls in accessing secondary education. The government should target day schools for the expansion of secondary school education, given their relative low resource. the book is very interesting!!!!!

Avoiding AMI Readmissions with Cardiac Rehabili...

A significant number of Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) patients were readmitted to an urban San Francisco Medical Center within 5-7 days post discharge this year. Two of the main identified causes were symptom management issues and medication instructions, both of which are part of the discharge instructions. It's not surprising that 80% of all discharge teaching is forgotten by patients by the time they hit the parking lot. With the recommended timeframe for post discharge follow up appointments at 48 to 72 hours post discharge and as those appointments are not typically available within the recommended timeframe, patients are more likely to be readmitted unless an alternative for post discharge follow up can be created. The intent of this project is to propose the implementation of a hospital based Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR) program that allows AMI patients to participate as early as 48 -72 hours post discharge. This first part, or intake to the CR program would reinforce discharge teaching inclusive of medication reconciliation, symptom management, and all other components taught at discharge. The evidence to be duplicated is that enrollment in a certified cardiac rehab
