This paper explores the knowledge of the concept ‘Light Rail Transit’ (LRT) in the context of implementing a Light Rail system in a (sub)-urban region. To this end, three models are estimated: a first model to explore the role of knowledge on modal choice, a second one to identify the determinants of the level of knowledge and a third model to identify the determinants of a cognitive mismatch between actual (real) knowledge and perceived knowledge. The first model (a negative binomial regression model) underlines the significant relation between knowledge of the concept LRT and modal choice. Given the lack of knowledge of the concept ‘Light Rail Transit’ revealed by the descriptive results, it is of crucial importance to raise the level of knowledge. Knowledge acquisition can be based on transit experiences and information provision. To explore how information campaigns should be constructed and which target groups should be approached, the factors influencing travelers’ knowledge and the determinants of a cognitive mismatch are identified by a Multinomial Logit Model (MNL-model) and a binary logit model. The results show that various socio-economic variables as well as socio-psychological variables are significantly influencing actual knowledge and significantly influencing a cognitive mismatch. Among these variables, employment, gender, perception of ticket price of Public Transit (PT) and expectations with regard to seat availability in the LRT-vehicle are the most influential ones.

Promoting affiliation between scientists is relatively easy, but creating larger organisational structures is more difficult, due to traditions of scientific independance, difficulties of sharing implicit knowledge, and formal organisational barrers. Hence there is a need to research possibilities given by Communities of practice. This paper presents a research projet (doctoral thesis) whose goal is to implement Communities of Practice (CoP) in order to sustain knowledge transfer in regulatory analytical sciences. [less ▲]

This chapter analyses the production of knowledge in mental health care networks during a policy process that took place in Belgium between 2007 and 2010.By drawing on a case study of the horizontal pilot ‘Adults: General Psychiatry’ (AGP) – the discussion of different local pilots in adult general psychiatry – this chapter sets out to investigate empirically: how practitioners embodied knowledge of the new practices; how they came to enact that knowledge in the course of cross-project discussions; and how they coped with its inscription in a proposal for structural reform. At the same time, by also drawing on Actor-Network Theory (ANT) and the sociology of translation (Callon, 1999; Latour, 2007; Freeman, 2009), the discussion shows how ANT and the phenomenology of embodied, inscribed and enacted knowledge complement each another.

AIM OF THE STUDY: The lack of traceability and monitoring of blood donors and transfused patients constitute a barrier to the most basic rules of haemovigilance and overall good transfusion practices. This study draws up an inventory of knowledge, attitudes and clinical practice of blood prescribers in Niamey. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A questionnaire was administered to 180 prescribers of blood products in Niamey in 2011. Questions were related to basic informations on blood transfusion and clinical use of blood. Analyses were performed using SAS 9.3 version. RESULTS: The sample consisted of 180 respondents from several professional categories: 51 physicians (28.33%), 10 medical students (5.56%), 84 nurses (46.67%), 15 anaesthesiologist assistant (8.33%) and 20 midwives (11.11%). Among these, 22.2% received training in blood transfusion safety. Half of the respondents (50.8%) got between 50 and 75% of correct answers, 45.8% got less than 50% correct while 3.35% scored more than 75% correct answers. The overall quality of responses was higher among physicians compared to other prescribers (P<0.0001); among respondents who received training in transfusion safety (P<0.0001); and among males (P=0.0306). For some items, subjects with more experience scored the best. CONCLUSION: The level of knowledge is still inadequate. More training in transfusion practices is necessary for prescribers of blood products. Accompanying measures to improve transfusion practice must be considered or strengthened through assessments, knowledge update/upgrade (regular, ongoing training) and establishment of active and motivated hospital transfusion committees.

Rangelands cover about 82% of the arid area of Morocco. It is generally acknowledged that these areas are threatened by desertification. Monitoring desertification requires accurate knowledge about the current status of rangeland degradation. Remote sensing is widely used to assess changes in land cover, but its use in arid rangelands has limitations because of spectral confusion among various types of land cover. The objective of this study was to assess the severity and spatial extent of rangeland degradation in the high plateaus of eastern Morocco, using a knowledge-based approach combining remote sensing and ancillary data. This approach relies on analyzing datasets derived from Landsat TM satellite imagery, lithology, bioclimatic data and field measurements. The level of rangeland degradation was assessed using indicators such as vegetation parameters, grazing levels and cultivation intensity, which provided a high level of accuracy for mapping and monitoring the degradation of the arid rangelands. The results showed that the total area of degraded rangeland in the high plateaus of eastern Morocco is about 17,417 km², accounting for 48% in the studied area. [less ▲]

Techniques for the preparation of biological samples are often based nowadays on solid-phase extraction (SPE). The different SPE steps can be performed automatically on disposable extraction cartridges (DECs) by means of a sample processor. A knowledge-based system was developed to facilitate the development of fully automated methods for the solid-phase extraction of relatively hydrophobic basic drugs from plasma, coupled with their determination by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The DEC filled with 50 mg of cyanopropyl-bonded silica phase is first conditioned with methanol and buffer solution (pH 7.4). After sample application, the DEC sorbent is washed with the same buffer. The analytes are then desorbed with an appropriate eluent and the eluate is finally diluted with the same buffer as used in the HPLC mobile phase before injection. Under these conditions, only three variables are still to be optimized: the composition and volume of the elution solvent and the volume of buffer to be added to the eluate. On the basis of this general strategy, a decision tree providing information about suggested starting conditions and guidelines for the optimization of the three variables was developed and implemented by use of a hypermedia software. This didactic expert system was evaluated using several beta-receptor blocking agents as model compounds and the operating conditions obtained for the automated SPE of these compounds are presented. A method for the determination of propranolol in plasma using the SPE conditions deduced from the knowledge-based system was validated. The absolute recovery of propranolol is ca. 93% and the limit of detection is 1.3 ng ml-1. The mean within-day and between-day reproducibilities are 2.3 and 3.6%, respectively. [less ▲]
