The effect of a birth place decision support tool on women's decision making and information gathering behaviours during pregnancy: MyBirthplace Study Protocol

Daisy Wiggins
2018 Journal of Innovation in Health Informatics  
This study assesses the effect of an unique Decision Support Tool (DST) called MyBirthplace on decision making and information gathering behaviours of pregnant women regarding birth place choice.  ...  The study seeks to understand women's views and opinions about using the DST and their feelings about how well the DST supports them to make a decision.  ...  shows that these DSTs are effective in reducing the decisional conflict that women have when it comes to making a choice. 14, 17 Although tools exist to support choice with regard to birthplace, for  ...

Grimace Scores: Tools to Support the Identification of Pain in Mammals Used in Research

Shari Cohen, Thierry Beths
2020 Animals  
Grimace scores are a promising adjunctive behavioural technique in some mammalian species to identify and assess pain in research animals.  ...  Each has been used to develop different pain scoring systems with potential benefits and limitations in identifying and assessing pain.  ...  The full spectrum of potential confounders to unmitigated pain is not entirely understood; however, the literature supports that there are experimental and animal welfare benefits in identifying and subsequently  ...

Evaluation of student software tools for supporting an understanding of PID tuning

J.A. Rossiter
2018 IFAC-PapersOnLine  
Typically, for any fixed cohort, that would be just one piece of software although an argument could be made that one can always also use MATLAB as that is a tool most engineering students gain profficiency  ...  A number of the basic scenarios support PID compensation and in fact a main focus is the behaviours of chemical engineering processes.  ...

ARE PEERLESS E-RESOURCES ANY BETTER TOOLS FOR SUPPORTING STUDENTS IN OPEN AND DISTANCE LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS THAN THE MORE TRADITIONAL TOOLS? THE CASE OF MZUZU UNIVERSITY, MALAWI

Mackenzie Chibambo, Wellman Kondowe
2017 Researchers World – Journal of Arts Science & Commerce  
We established that while our anticipation was that modern students would very much prefer e-resources to printed materials, the results came out differently.  ...  The aim of this study was to explore students' perceptions of e-resources as learning tools compared with other more traditional tools used in the 8th, 9th and 10th semester arts, humanities and science  ...  In fact, identifying how learning tools affect learning outcomes seems difficult because of the so many variables that come into play when measuring such behaviours.  ...

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The authors would like to thank the members of Cityware for their contributions. This research project is funded by the EPSRC, UK. 6.  ...  We also observed differences between singles and groups in this behaviour. In a group we see people toying with their phones when talking to the rest of the group.  ...  This was complemented by an observation in a public café in Bath. Different types of behaviour were observed in relation to space properties.  ...
