UCSD Electronic Wireless Tattoo Receives Grant from the Gates Foundation

See on Scoop.it - Perspectives on Health


Described as an electronic “tattoo”, the device is a wearable patch of circuits, sensors, and wireless transmitters that sticks to the skin like a temporary tattoo and is able to stretch and flex with the skin. The researchers hope that the final product will continuously measure and monitor uterine contractions, fetal heart rate and oxygen, and maternal heart rate and body temperature. According to Todd Coleman, professor of bioengineering and head of the project, the device is unique because of its ability to continuously check a number of different measurements in an unobtrusive manner. Moreover, the device will work well in developing countries that lack sufficient healthcare access, but have high mobile phone usage, as it will transmit data wirelessly to a cellphone and on to the cloud to be viewed by physicians far away. Be sure to read about some of the other grant winners here. There’s a lot of neat research being done in the areas of vaccines, synthetic biology, and global health.

E-portfolios, Sakai, and ‘new paradigms’

See on Scoop.it - Studying Teaching and Learning



In this article, Batson argues that Sakai’s OAE (Open Academic Environment – formerly Sakai 3) reflects a new paradigm of online learning, moving from an instructor-led to a learner-led environment based around its e-portfolio capability.

However, surely this will depend on how instructors choose to use it? A true learner-focused environment is likely to include more than one proprietary set of tools. See ‘Designing online learning for the 21st century‘ for an alternative view.

At its core, the issues associated with mobile learning get to the very fundamentals of what happens in class everyday. At their best, cell phones and mobile devices seamlessly facilitate what students and teachers already do in thriving, inspiring classrooms. Students communicate and collaborate with each other and the teacher. They apply facts and information they’ve found to formulate or back up their ideas. They create projects to deepen their understanding, association with, and presentation of ideas.

Nurse practitioners tackling more 'doctor' tasks - Bellingham Herald

See on Scoop.it - Perspectives on Health



Bellingham Herald - By SCOTT TRAVIS — Sun Sentinel

“Many of your health care needs may soon be handled by a “doctor” who has actually been trained as a nurse.”

Advanced registered nurse practitioners are increasingly performing duties once reserved for physicians, including diagnosing illnesses and prescribing medicine. It’s a trend that’s likely to continue as states grapple with escalating health care costs and a shortage of primary care physicians.

And they’ll be better trained, because of higher standards for nursing school accreditation that could go into effect as soon as 2015. Around the country, schools have been adding “doctor of nursing practice” programs, which they expect will soon become the standard degree for practitioners. They won’t be physicians, but you can call them doctor.
