Dementia in the adult U.S. population is a devastating disorder that is often unrecognized or misdiagnosed in its early stages. Despite the current lack of unequivocally effective treatment, recognition of early-stage dementia may offer substantial benefits. These include avoidance of inappropriate treatment related to misdiagnosis and time for the patient and family to address issues of financial, legal, and medical care planning. This Clinical Practice Guideline is intended to help primary care providers recognize and assess Alzheimer's disease and related dementias in the early stages. Differential diagnosis is beyond the scope of the guideline; however, the guidline contains a list of resources for further clinical evaluation once probable dementia has been identified.

Since the beginning of the 21st century, Panama has exhibited remarkable economic growth and has reduced the gap in terms of income per capita with high-income countries. Social progress has also been achieved, mainly through the reduction of poverty and advances in some well-being dimensions.

The Initial Assessment of this Multi-Dimensional Review endeavors to identify the challenges and key constraints that must be overcome for Thailand to succeed.
The state of fundamental knowledge on graphite and the graphitisation process is reviewed. The present state of development of 4 principal methods of manufacture is examined. The erosion of graphite, the use of coatings, the addition of vaporising compounds and the development of new graphites are discussed. Considerations relating to thermal shock, creep and fabricationARE SURVEYED. Conclusions are: (1) that graphite is of singular importance to high temperature technology; (2) that commercial issues cannot be allowed to impede vigorous development towards more resistant for s; (3) that much is to be gained by viewing graphite from a metals standpoint; (4) that the fundamental theory of the basic crystal mechanics is undeveloped; (5) that the present wide variability in properties should not be regarded overseriously; (6) that non-destructive assessment by damping measurements needs development; (7) that coatings and impregnants are of high priority; and (8) that, of all factors, oxidation is the most serious limitation to use at the present time.

The often complex problems of the trauma patient present many challenges to front line emergency staff. Multiple injuries involving many systems of the body require careful and timely prioritisation and intervention in the emergency department. Trauma Care provides emergency nurses with a practical guide to the systematic assessment and management of trauma patients, equipping them with the clinical knowledge and practical skills necessary to initially assess and care for the trauma patient in the emergency department trauma environment. Trauma Care explores the concept of trauma assessment, focusing on patient priorities and interprofessional trauma team working. Individual chapters look at the essential assessment and management issues for each system of the body and specific age related complications. Emphasis is placed on key patient priorities, with acknowledgement to the common pitfalls in initial trauma care. This text will be essential for all emergency nurses, and those working in the emergency department.

A discussion of family literacy projects focuses on alternatives to traditional methods of program evaluation. In the first chapter, the distinction between standardized and alternative assessments is clarified and the special evaluation needs of family literacy projects are highlighted. The remainder of the handbook is intended to help program staff members design and implement appropriate alternative approaches to assessment. Each chapter addresses a different aspect of assessment and evaluation. Chapter 2 contains a model for integrating program planning, implementation, and evaluation activities. Chapter 3 addresses initial assessment, including needs assessment, intake, and placement, suggesting strategies for using these to yield accurate baseline information. The fourth chapter describes how alternative approaches can be used to document learners' progress toward instructional objectives, and the fifth chapter suggests uses for surveys, performance samples, focus groups, and observation techniques to measure and demonstrate progress toward program goals. The final chapter describes the process used in designing and field testing this handbook, using the planning model presented earlier and offering methods for refining the project in question. A glossary is included. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
