The ageing of the population is an issue which concerns the whole planet and Quebec is no exception. When caring for fragil elderly people, the nurse's role is deployed in different contexts. Care in the home is often prioritised and innovations are emerging to promote professionals in this area. In the hospital setting, notably, there is a programme in which the nurse is given a central role. This article presents an overview of the challenges in terms of training and long-term care.

The thermodynamical and mechanical properties of (fragile and strong) glass are modeled based on a generalised activation energy relationship log( τ ) = ΔG ( β )/RTn(T') process of glass-forming liquids. This cooperative process involves 1/n(T') elementary β motions of activation Gibbs energy ΔG ( β ) dependent on the equivalent temperature T', the temperature of the liquid in equilibrium having the volume of the glass, function of temperature and aging conditions. From this modified VFT law the relaxation of any properties (V , H , stress, creep) can be calculated and approximated by the Kohlrausch function...

Peroxidation of the membrane lipid structure of red blood cell leads to haemolysis and anaemia in haemodialysis patients. Dietary constituents of antioxidant vitamins and trace elements may play an important role in protecting against oxidant damage. In this study, the effects of supplementation of vitamin C and zinc on osmotic fragility and lipid peroxidation of erythrocytes were investigated in 34 zinc-deficient haemodialysis patients. Sixteen sex- and age-matched normal volunteers acted as controls. Patients were randomized to receive vitamin C (250 mg day(-1)), zinc (20 mg day(-1)) or a placebo treatment for 3 months...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
