Teachers’ Explicit And Implicit Attitude Toward Homosexuality: The Role Of Internal And External Motivation To Respond Without Prejudice, Christina C. Graham

Doctorate in Social Work (DSW) Dissertations

Joyce K Kutin RN, MSN, MOL

Evolving more than thirty years ago, the Diagnosis Related Groups (DRGs) covers a wide variety of applications that impact all health care segments throughout the United States. The DRGs are a patient classification scheme originally developed as a means of relating the type of patients a hospital treats (i.e., casemix) to the costs incurred by the hospitals.

The DRG terminology has experienced evolutionary growth through later generations: Major Comorbidities and Complications (MCC), Comorbidities and Complications (CC) and All Patient Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (APR DRG). This process directly impacts the reimbursement or payment re-distribution by Medicare and Medicaid.

Assessing The Presence And Use Of Nonverbal Communication In Primary Reading Instruction, Amelia C. Ferrell Jan 2012

Assessing The Presence And Use Of Nonverbal Communication In Primary Reading Instruction, Amelia C. Ferrell

Theses, Dissertations and Capstones

This research examined the presence and types of nonverbal communication presented in primary reading instruction. Primary instructors were surveyed about their use and types of nonverbal communication employed during reading instruction. Nonverbal communication variables studied were determined from relevant literature regarding nonverbal immediacy, primary education, and reading instruction. Findings revealed that almost all nonverbal communication variables studied were employed frequently and most respondents had no prior training. Findings suggest how future studies can better evaluate the role of nonverbal communication in reading instruction and provide education for primary teachers in hopes of improving literacy education.
