This symposium proposes presentations related to nurse educators competencies and the challenges links to their new roles. The evolution of the nurses training at the European level asks the teacher to develop high-level disciplinary skills but also educational skills. There are lots of challenges to develop nurse educator competencies. The role of the teachers is not any more to transmit disciplinary knowledge but to become experts in group management, colleagues teamwork, reflective practice, and construction of active learning situations in a socio constructivist model. These changes of roles also have an impact on the professional identity of the teachers. The various presentations will approach successively these ideas: 1. A proposal for a Competencies Benchmarking of Nurse Educators The aim of this presentation is to characterize the nursing teachers concepts on their professionalism,roles, competences and their identities construction. 2. Educational knowledge in teaching in nursing This presentation examine the teachers conceptions about teaching nursing and professional knowledge about teaching in higher education. 3. Construction of teaching/learning to care from the perspective of nursing teacher This presentation analyses the facilities and difficulties of nurse teacher in their role. 4. The OSCE, an educational project who support the development of the nurse teacher competencies A model for the implementation of a reflexive approach for the nursing training: challenges for the nurse teachers [less ▲]

A theoretical model of clinical case management for psychogeriatric patients and their families is described. Psychogeriatric patients often have complex health care needs, requiring specific nursing interventions. The increasing frailty of these patients over time, together with the risk for institutionalization, make professional nursing contribution to their care even more desirable. Nursing case management is described by means of a conceptual-operational continuum. On the conceptual site, the continuum includes a geriatric definition and core principles of case management. On the operational site, case management is described as a clinical system, a process, a technology, and a role. The process of case management is a deliberate, intellectual activity whereby the practice of nursing is approached in an orderly, systematic manner. It includes components of assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation, and evaluation. The case management approach requires nurses to assume an active role in designing care maps and to work collaboratively with members of a multidisciplinary team. [less ▲]

The numeral unit spread assessment pedigree (NUSAP) system was implemented to evaluate the quality of input parameters in a quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) model for Salmonella spp. in minced pork meat. The input parameters were grouped according to four successive exposure pathways: (1) primary production (2) transport, holding, and slaughterhouse, (3) postprocessing, distribution, and storage, and (4) preparation and consumption. An inventory of 101 potential input parameters was used for building the QMRA model. The characteristics of each parameter were defined using a standardized procedure to assess (1) the source of information, (2) the sampling methodology and sample size, and (3) the distributional properties of the estimate. Each parameter was scored by a panel of experts using a pedigree matrix containing four criteria (proxy, empirical basis, method, and validation) to assess the quality, and this was graphically represented by means of kite diagrams. The parameters obtained significantly lower scores for the validation criterion as compared with the other criteria. Overall strengths of parameters related to the primary production module were significantly stronger compared to the other modules (the transport, holding, and slaughterhouse module, the processing, distribution, and storage module, and the preparation and consumption module). The pedigree assessment contributed to select 20 parameters, which were subsequently introduced in the QMRA model. The NUSAP methodology and kite diagrams are objective tools to discuss and visualize the quality of the parameters in a structured way. These two tools can be used in the selection procedure of input parameters for a QMRA, and can lead to a more transparent quality assurance in the QMRA. [less ▲]

implemented to evaluate assumptions in a quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) model for Salmonella spp. in minced pork meat. This QMRA model allows the testing of mitigation strategies for the reduction of human salmonellosis and aims to serve as a basis for science-based policy making. The NUSAP method was used to assess the subjective component of assumptions in the QMRA model by a set of four pedigree criteria: ‘the influence of situational limitations’, ‘plausibility’, ‘choice space’ and ‘the agreement among peers’. After identifying 13 key assumptions relevant for the QMRA model, a workshop was organized to assess the importance of these assumptions on the output of the QMRA. The quality of the assumptions was visualized using diagnostic and kite diagrams. The diagnostic diagram pinpointed assumptions with a high degree of subjectivity and a high ‘expected influence on the model results’ score. Examples of those assumptions that should be dealt with care are the assumptions regarding the concentration of Salmonella on the pig carcass at the beginning of the slaughter process and the assumptions related to the Salmonella prevalence in the slaughter process. The kite diagrams allowed a clear overview of the pedigree scores for each assumption as well as a representation of expert (dis)agreement. The evaluation of the assumptions using the NUSAP system enhanced the debate on the uncertainty and its communication in the results of a QMRA model. It highlighted the model’s strong and weak points and was helpful for redesigning critical modules. Since the evaluation of assumptions allows a more critical approach of the QMRA process, it is useful for policy makers as it aims to increase the transparency and acceptance of management decisions based on a QMRA model.

De frequentie van het 'witte-jassen' syndroom en het belang van dit fenomeen op de bloeddrukbelasting en de variabiliteit van de arteriële bloeddruk over 24 uur werden bij 181 patiënten onderzocht gedurende een 24 uur durende ambulante bloeddrukmeting. Ondanks een goede correlatie tussen de klinische meting van de arteriële bloeddruk en de gemiddelde bloeddruk overdag of gedurende 24 uur, is er toch een tegenstrijdigheid tussen de .bloeddrukwaarden die met beide methoden worden gemeten (de klinische bloeddruk is hoger dan de ambulant gemeten bloeddruk, des te meer naarmate de klinische bloeddruk hoger is). Bij de beoordeling van de werkzaamheid van antihypertensiva blijkt uit het beloop van de bloeddruk dat een derde van de behandelde patiënten normale bloeddrukwaarden heeft, terwijl bij twee derden van de patiënten de gemiddelde bloeddruk overdag en gedurende 24 uur duidelijk hoger is dan per definitie is toegestaan. Dit onderzoek toont ook aan dat de ambulant gemeten bloeddrukwaarden (vooral de systolische bloeddruk) een beter voorspellend vermogen voor linker-ventrikelhypertrofie hebben dan de klinisch gemeten bloeddrukwaarden. Deze waarnemingen bevestigen het belang van deze niet-invasieve techniek van meting van de gemiddelde bloeddruk, zowel om het 'witte-jassen' effect te objectiveren en aldus de diagnose arteriële hypertensie te preciseren, als om na te gaan of de bloeddruk met antihypertensiva goed is ingesteld.

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this first global systematic review on selected nutraceuticals was to synthesize and evaluate scientific relevant data available in the literature. Evidences that can support health, physiological or functional benefit on osteoarthritis (OA) were gathered and the level of evidence relative to each of these ingredients was highlighted. METHODOLOGY: Relevant scientific data (positive or not) regarding OA were searched for five groups of compounds (avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASU), n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, collagen hydrosylates (CHs), vitamin D, polyphenols) within preclinical (in vitro and in vivo), epidemiological, and clinical studies. The following criteria were evaluated to assess the methodology quality of each study: (1) study question; (2) study population; (3) primary endpoint; (4) study design (randomization, control, blinding, duration of follow up); (5) data analysis and interpretation. A scientific consensus was determined for all studied nutraceuticals to evaluate their efficacy in OA. RESULTS: The studied compounds demonstrated different potencies in preclinical studies. Most of them have demonstrated anti-catabolic and anti-inflammatory effects by various inhibitory activities on different mediators. Vitamin D showed a pro-catabolic effect in vitro and the polyphenol, Genistein, had only anti-inflammatory potency. The evaluation of the clinical data showed that ASU was the only one of the studied ingredients to present a good evidence of efficacy, but the efficient formulation was considered as a drug in some countries. Pycnogenol showed moderate evidence of efficacy, and vitamin D and collagen hydrolysate demonstrated a suggestive evidence of efficacy, whereas curcumin, epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) and resveratrol had only preclinical evidence of efficacy due to the lack of clinical data. The literature gathered for n-3 PUFA, nobiletin and genistein was insufficient to conclude for their efficacy in OA. CONCLUSION: Additional data are needed for most of the studied nutraceuticals. Studies of good quality are needed to draw solid conclusions regarding their efficacy but nutraceuticals could represent good alternates for OA management. Their use should be driven by any recommendations. [less ▲]

Despite its relative oligotrophy, the northwestern Mediterranean exhibits rich biodiversity and traditional fishing that are fueled by phytoplankton at the basis of the food web. However, long-term observations of phytoplankton biomass reveal high interannual variability controlled by mechanisms that are still poorly understood, but have implications for the way we study and manage coastal zones in a changing world. Here we present a synthesis of a long-term high-resolution study of nutrient and phytoplankton bloom dynamics performed between 1979 and 2011 at a permanent station in the Bay of Calvi (Corsica, northwestern Mediterranean). The ecosystem of the Bay is known to be very sensitive to climate forcing but preserved from local anthropogenic stressors. As a distinctive feature of the area, the winter-spring phytoplankton bloom of the Bay of Calvi is characterized by a very large interannual variability reaching one order of magnitude from one year to another. In order to understand mechanisms controlling this variability, we defined a winter intensity index (WII) that integrates wind stress intensity and water temperature. WII does not evidence any trend over the 1979-2011 period but is closely correlated to nutrient delivery from deep waters and to phytoplankton production. We synthesize our current understanding of phytoplankton response to the combination of external forcings and discuss the impact of expected environmental changes on the pelagic food web in a region that is predicted to be particularly sensitive to long-term changes driven by human activities.
