Can A Storybook Intervention Increase Children’s Home Safety Knowledge and Decrease Risk Behaviours?Reim, Elyse 19 October 2011 (has links)
The goal of this study was to examine whether a storybook about home safety would increase hazard recognition, and reduce risky behaviour in children three through five years of age. Participants were randomly assigned to either receive the storybook intervention or a control condition. While robust group differences were not found, the results revealed trends as expected. There was a significant increase in hazard identification scores from pre- to post-intervention in the intervention but not the control condition, with greater reading time positively associated with larger improvements. Moreover, while children in the control group showed a marginally significant increase in number of hazards they touched from pre- to post-intervention, those in the intervention group did not. The pattern of these findings suggests that the storybook intervention, to some extent, positively impacted both knowledge and behaviour. Suggestions for future research are discussed.

Protection of life and property is an age-old need of human beings. Through the ages, territoriality and personal interest played an important role in the protection of life and property. The historical development of private security throughout the world displays a colourful history - from ancient to modem times. The birth of modem policing originated as a result of private security during the beginning of the 19th century. Since then, private security developed into a formidable entity - to such an extent that since the beginning of the seventies in America private security surpassed public policing. Presently, private security in South Africa has also outgrown public policing. The present study aims at narrowing the gap in our substantive knowledge about the role of private security in crime prevention by means of two structured questionnaires - one for public and one for private security respondents. The study aims at the following: > to record the evolution of private security from ancient to modem times > to compare the perceptions of both public and private security respondents in regard to the role and function of private security in crime prevention > to establish how respondents feel about security measures aimed at eliminating crime opportunities > to establish which precautionary measures respondents take to protect themselves. Research techniques implemented in this study are the following: > A literature study regarding a wide range of aspects pertaining to the role of private security in crime prevention. ** Structured questionnaires reflecting the demographic (independent variables) of the respondents as well as their responses on the dependent variable. > Non-probability techniques. > Frequency distributions and cross-correlation of statistical information intended to provide a greater clarity about the dependent variable. The findings of the study indicated that: > The role of private security in society in general and in crime prevention in particular have been rated very important by both sampling groups. > Specific functions of private security have been favourably evaluated by the respondents. > Specific security measures in crime prevention have also been rated as very important. > Aspects relating to the role of private security in society have been favourably rated by both sampling groups. The following recommendations have been formulated: > Special police status for private security officers. > Tax credits for individual security expenditures. > Transfer of specific public police duties to private security. > Academic and basic training for the development of private security officers. > Greater public police - private security co-operation.

Evidence-based guidelines for the prevention of pressure ulcers using pressure-relieving support surface for bedbound elderly黃美婷, Wong, Mei-ting 2013 (has links)
Background Pressure ulcer prevention has been an important and a common health care problem in every health care setting. Pressure ulcers are the clinical situation that can be avoided. To prevent pressure ulcer, the main strategy is to reduce either the pressure contact time, or magnitude of pressure, between a patient and his or her support surface. Pressure-relieving support surfaces are shown to be effective in preventing the development of pressure ulcer with strong evidence support. In Hong Kong, the low compliance of the ward staff to apply pressure-relieving support surfaces for at risk patients is compared with other countries. Therefore, a feasible evidence-based guideline of using pressure-relieving support surfaces to prevent pressure ulcers stands out from the multi-interventions pressure ulcer prevention guideline to maximize its effectiveness in this clinical issue. Purpose Reviewing the needs in modifying the current clinical practice and guidelines in local setting, the aim of the dissertation is to develop evidence-based guidelines for prevention of pressure ulcers using pressure‐relieving support surface for bedbound elderly. The findings are used to develop recommendations for nursing guideline to prevent pressure ulcers through the utilization of pressure‐relieving support surface in Hong Kong public hospital setting. Methods Four electronic databases published from 1937 to 2012 were searched. All the studies extracted were randomised controlled trials while focusing on using pressure-relieving support surfaces to prevent pressure ulcers of adult patients. The quality of each study was assessed by a methodology checklist, the Scottish Intercollegiate Guideline Network in order to justify the level of evidence of the studies’ internal validity. Conclusion From the evidence, the clearest conclusion that can be drawn is that a range of pressure‐relieving mattresses and overlays in the prevention of pressure ulcers can outperform the standard hospital mattress. It can be applied to any health care settings. The reviewed studies have shown that pressure‐relieving mattresses are effective on at risk patients, especially they are in advanced age with low mobility. Therefore, this evidence-based guidelines will serve in the medical rehabilitation wards to reduce the number of elderly from developing pressure ulcer after using the pressure‐relieving supporting surfaces. published_or_final_version Nursing Studies Master Master of Nursing
