There are few studies about assessment interventions in the quality of live area and rare are those using the evaluation research design indicated by the methodological scientific literature. The objectives of this research are to test a quality life intervention plan, and to promote mental health at the university. The Yoga formed the basis of the intervention plan developed.
to identify the relationship among the yoga practice, the health status (HS) and the quality of life (QL) experienced by students.
it was used a base line before the intervention and repeated measures at the end of the program intervention (pre-and post-test). Participants were a 67 students enrolled in the university program. Measures: a) A questionnaire to identify the participants' health status and their quality of life; b) The Yoga Intervention (YI) developed once a week, lasting one hour during two months at the students' place. Statistical results indicated the positive impact of YI over the students' health and their quality of life (QL). In general, there was an important difference in the degree of health status experienced by students at the end of the program. Even if some health problems remain the students have a better control over them. The QL measure also showed an important difference by the end of the intervention. In addition participants reported the importance of the Yoga in their lives, including better school performance.
The quality life intervention plan was tested. We encourage YI for promoting mental health in the university setting.
Although ideas of space and time strongly influence human consciousness, decisions and activities, investigations into time concepts have been almost neglected in prehistoric archaeology. In this chapter new results of social neurobiology, sociology and archaeology are combined to focus on how time concepts might have changed at the transition to sedentary farming communities. Sociological studies have shown that, in every society, at least three concepts of time exist: episodic, cyclical and linear. The archaeological evidence from the early Neolithic of the Near East suggests that there was no linear evolution from episodic, to cyclical and then on to linear concepts of time. It seems that increasing circular and linear concepts of time were related to concepts of confined personal and social identities in sedentary agricultural communities. Anticipating and assessing environmental conditions and long-term planning became crucial cognitive capacities within farming communities. Episodic concepts of time were marginalized.
In light of recent advances in scientific understanding, this textbook provides a comprehensive yet focused guide to anemia, the most common hematologic malady in medicine. This authoritative, clinical resource covers the scientific basis of the many forms of anemia, while offering a practical approach to prognosis, diagnosis and management. Chapters cover a multitude of topics, ranging from the basic components and physiologic functions, to secondary anemias and transfusion therapy. Modern in approach, this text also looks ahead to new and innovative methodologies. With recommended treatment plans and many case studies, this heavily-illustrated book is essential reading for hematologists and oncologists. In providing a pathophysiologic context, it is also of interest to nurse practitioners, physician assistants and medical students in the field. This book provides access to an online version on Cambridge Core, which can be accessed via the code printed on the inside of the cover.
