If I was assigned a task of determining whether a procedure could be assigned to nursing staff, I would begin by referring to hospital policy. Hospital policy is there to guide and to protect nurses in the hospital system. These policy and procedures are created by nurses with legal and administrative representatives. If this new task had not been addressed in previous policies I would conduct a self-assessment with regards to my own skills and abilities, and my documented competency to perform the task. To do this I would refer to the laws, rules and standards of care within my facility and also the state board of nursing scope of practice. If there was any question that the skills needed to perform the procedure is out of our scope of practice, I would express concern to the appropriate supervisor.
If it is determined the procedure follows the guidelines set out by the board of nursing, I would proceed in obtaining as much information as possible from others with experience in the task. I would research the topic and review other hospital policy and procedures to see what role their nurses play in the task. I would communicate with the doctor, asking him to clarify his expectations of the nursing staff. I would talk with my peers and get their ideas of what kind of educational opportunities they would require to be safe and proficient in the skill. I would provide written documentation of competency for each individual and specific written orders

Copyright r 2006 Society for Psychophysiological Research DOI: 10.1111/j.1469-8986.2006.00392.x When does size not matter? Effects of stimulus size on affective modulation ANDREA DE CESAREI AND MAURIZIO CODISPOTI Department of Psychology, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy Abstract Motivationally relevant stimuli have been shown to receive prioritized processing compared to neutral stimuli at distinct processing stages. This effect has been related to the evolutionary importance of rapidly detecting dangers and potential rewards and has been shown to be modulated by the distance between an organism and a faced stimulus. Similarly, recent studies showed degrees of emotional modulation of autonomic responses and subjective arousal ratings depending on stimulus size. In the present study, affective modulation of pictures presented in different sizes was investigated by measuring event-related potentials during a two-choice categorization task. Results showed significant emotional modulation across all sizes at both earlier and later stages of processing. Moreover, affective modulation of earlier processes was reduced in smaller compared to larger sizes, whereas no changes in affective modulation were observed at later stages.

Piaget's Task

..., weight, and volume are not achieved of a piece. For Piaget's subjects, conservation of matter seems to become common at 8-10 years of age, of weight at 10-12, and of volume only at 12 years and after.2 1 We shall shortly describe one particular conservation task, involving the dissolving of sugar in water, whose formal properties are even more like those of the object concept problem. 3 The only statistic to be found in the quantity book bears on this horizontal decalage among the three types of quantity concept. Of 180 children aged 4-10 years, 55 showed no conservation of any kind, 67 showed conservation of matter alone, 38 of matter and weight but not volume, and only 20 of all three (ibid., p. 12). Although this is not explicitly stated, one gets the impression that developmental reversals (e.g., conservation of volume achieved before conservation of weight) were rare or absent. 300 THE EXPERIMENTS Piaget's interpretation of these findings is complex and detailed, but the key elements appear to be the following. There are probably two developing schemas which together contribute to the acquisition of matter conservation, i.e., conservation of the global "amount of stuff" in the piece of clay. There is first the general capacity to multiply relations (ibid., pp. 24-25), already described in Chapter 5 apropos of concreteoperational Grouping VII. Consider the case where the ball of clay is transformed into a sausage. Conservation of matter will be a likelier...

For this activity to run successfully my partner and I need to take many things into consideration such as the planning of the lesson, we will need to think about availability of the facility’s and make sure other classes aren’t using them on the day we will also need to think about the equipment we will need what drills we can do and time management.

Do achieve a successful enjoyable lesson my partner and I are going to make a detailed lesson plan marking out what equipment is needed, what drills we will be doing and the duration of each drill. We will also be doing some research on netball so that we are more educated when taking the lesson. Reflection Me and my partner Jett organized our lesson by looking up on the internet some drills that we can do in our lesson, from that we made a lesson plan which had all the drills we would be doing, how long each drill will take and what equipment will be needed. Some difficulties we uncounted were that we couldn’t locate some of the equipment we needed for our lesson, to overcome this we had to make a change to our warm up activity and do a different one that didn’t...

Chapter 1,2,3 – Answers to Assigned End of the Chapter Questions

...Chapter 1,2,3 – Answers to Assigned End of the Chapter Questions 1-1. Shareholder (owner) wealth maximization is the most widely cited business goal. The justification for shareholder wealth maximization is that managers are hired by the owners (shareholders) and serve as their agents. In addition, the well-being of the managers is closely tied to the wealth of the shareholders. In perfect competition, shareholder wealth maximizing behavior is necessary just to survive. 1-2. a. Wealth maximization for a single-period decision is measured by economic profit which is the excess of earnings or cash flow over that which could have been earned on investments of similar risk. b. Wealth maximization for a multi-period decision is measured by discounting the expected future economic profits (which is the excess of earnings or cash flow for each period over that which could have been earned on investments of similar risk for that period) back to present. 1-4. Present value is either a single future amount discounted back to present or the sum of a number of future amounts discounted back to present. Net present value is the sum of the present value and the initial outlay or outlays necessary to produce the future amount(s). 1-5. A capital investment is an outlay that is expected to result in benefits extending more than one year into the future. Capital budgeting is the process of selecting capital investments. 1-6.

Solution to Assigned Problem Finance

...Solutions to Assigned Problems Chapter One 2. Example One: An individual opens a savings account at a local commercial bank with a $200 deposit. The bank loans out the $200 with other funds from other savings accounts to a local business man who is expanding his business. The local business man pays back the loan overtime with interest and the bank credits the savings account with interest. The individual withdraws money from the savings account to buy a new bike. Example Two: An individual deposits his monthly paycheck in a checking account. The bank accumulates the funds from many checking accounts and loans money to an individual buying a house. The new homeowner makes monthly mortgage payments to the bank. The bank uses the mortgage payments to cover the checks written by the person with the checking account. Example Three: An individual buys a municipal bond for an airport improvement project. The individual usually buys a municipal from a bond dealer, an investment banker marketing the bond, and the funds from the sale of the bond are delivered to the city minus a fee from the investment banker. The city uses the funds to build new facilities at the airport, for example a new parking lot. Once finished the fees received from parking are used to payback the buyer of the bond with interest. 7. The goal of the financial manager is to maximize the current share price or equity value of the firm. This goal encompasses many good business practices such as...

Group Task

... and Anderson 1990). But the situation is more complex that this. Several key papers identify different types of tasks: disjunctive, conjunctive, additive and discretionary. Only some of these tasks can be properly assessed by means of groupwork; others are best assessed by other means (Bartlett 1998; Ruel et al. 2003; Steiner 1972; Watkins 2004). The types of task can be distinguished as follows. Disjunctive tasks These can be achieved by only one person in a group being required to think and provide an answer, for example, counting triangles in a diagram in an Economics class (Watkins 2004). Disjunctive tasks are clearly unsuitable for groupwork assessment exercises. In these tasks, the productivity of the group depends on the productivity of the performance of the best group member (Ruel et al. 2003). Therefore they foster and encourage ‘‘freeriding’’. 123 570 High Educ (2009) 58:563–584 Conjunctive tasks As the name suggests, these require each member to contribute to an assessed task. An example would be a team written essay without clearly identifiable parts that are assigned to members of the group. These tasks may or may not be suitable for groupwork. If the response to the exercise takes the form of an additive task (see below) then it may be appropriate. However, in a conjunctive task the productivity of the group may depend on the productivity of the performance of the worst group member (Ruel et al. 2003). Additive tasks These are......
