Applications of dynamical complexity theory in traditional Chinese medicine

Yan Ma, Shuchen Sun, Chung-Kang Peng
2014 Frontiers of Medicine  
Methods that can quantify the dynamics of complex integrative systems may bring new insights and utilities about the clinical practice and evaluation of efficacy of TCM.  ...  This difficulty arises from the fact that TCM views human body as a complex dynamical system, and focuses on the balance of the human body, both internally and with its external environment.  ...  This can be applied in clinical practice or medical research.  ...

Medical student attitudes towards older people: a critical review of quantitative measures

Mark A. G. Wilson, Susan Kurrle, Ian Wilson
2018 BMC Research Notes  
A reliable and valid instrument with which to quantify modern medical student attitudes towards older people has not yet been developed. Adaptation of the ASD for contemporary usage is recommended.  ...  The two objectives for this paper are: (1) From the literature, to critically review instruments of measure for medical student attitudes towards older people, and (2) To recommend the most appropriate  ...  Attitudes are complex, multi-dimensional and challenging to accurately quantify in medical education research.  ...
