  • Nettstøttet samhandlingslæring - hjelp eller hindring i helsefagutdanninger? 

    Nilsen, Gudrun; Immonen, Ingrid B. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013-02-08)
    I denne artikkel redegjør vi for et pilotprosjekt knyttet til nettstøttet videreutdanning innen helsefag ved Høgskolen i Finnmark, hvor ulike verktøy i høgskolens elektroniske læringsplattform ble prøvd ut med basis i kooperativ læringsfilosofi, samhandlingslæring. I helse- og sosialfaglig utdanning har det vært motstand mot å ta i bruk nettbaserte verktøy i undervisnings- og læringsprosessen. Det ...
  • Tumour-suppressor microRNAs let-7 and mir-101 target the proto-oncogene MYCN and inhibit cell proliferation in MYCN-amplified neuroblastoma 

    Buechner, Jochen; Tømte, Ellen; Haug, Bjørn Helge; Henriksen, Jørn Remi; Løkke, Cecilie; Flægstad, Trond; Einvik, Christer (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011-06-07)
    BACKGROUND: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate expression of many cancer-related genes through posttranscriptional repression of their mRNAs. In this study we investigate the proto-oncogene MYCN as a target for miRNA regulation.<p> <p>METHODS: A luciferase reporter assay was used to investigate software-predicted miRNA target sites in the 30 -untranslated region (30 UTR) of MYCN. The miRNAs were ...
  • Effect of antiangiogenic therapy on tumor growth, vasculature and kinase activity in basal- and luminal-like breast cancer xenografts 

    Lindholm, Evita Maria; Kristian, Alexandr; Nalwoga, Hawa; Kruger, Kristi; Nygård, Ståle; Akslen, Lars A.; Mælandsmo, Gunhild (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012-03-31)
    Several clinical trials have investigated the efficacy of bevacizumab in breast cancer, and even if growth inhibiting effects have been registered when antiangiogenic treatment is given in combination with chemotherapy no gain in overall survival has been observed. One reason for the lack of overall survival benefit might be that appropriate criteria for selection of patients likely to respond ...
  • Implementation of international society guidelines on chorionicity determination in twins: A multi-Center cohort study in mainland China 

    Wu, Su-Wen; Zhou, Qiongjie; Xiao, Xirong; Xiong, Yu; Liang, Huan; Shen, Jie; Barrett, Jon; Wang, Hong; Li, Xiao-Tian (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-04-02)

    Trøseid, Marius; Nestvold, Torunn Kristin; Rudi, Knut; Thoresen, Hanna; Nielsen, Erik Waage; Lappegård, Knut Tore (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013-10-15)
    OBJECTIVE It is of vital importance to elucidate the triggering factors of obesity and type 2 diabetes to improve patient care. Bariatric surgery has been shown to prevent and even cure diabetes, but the mechanism is unknown. Elevated levels of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) predict incident diabetes, but the sources of LPS are not clarified. The objective of the current study was to evaluate the ...

    Background: In today’s health care, new health reforms focus on market values and demands of efficiency influence health workers’ professional practice. Norwegian public health nurses work mainly with healthy populations, but the children, families and young people they meet can be in vulnerable and even dependent situations. Strategies in coping with ethically challenging encounters can be ...
  • Liver Regeneration in Surgical Animal Models - A Historical Perspective and Clinical Implications 

    Mortensen, Kim Erlend; Revhaug, Arthur (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2010-12-07)
    Methods/Aims: Despite improved preoperative evaluation, surgical techniques and perioperative intensive care, some patients still experience postoperative liver failure in part due to insufficient regeneration. The aim of this review is to give the reader a historical synopsis of the major trends in animal research on liver regeneration from the early experiments in 1877 up to modern investigation. ...

    Myrstad, Marius; Løchen, Maja-Lisa; Graff-Iversen, Sidsel; Gulsvik, Anne Kristine; Thelle, Dag Steinar; Stigum, Hein; Ranhoff, Anette Hylen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013-11-21)
    Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia. The prevalence increases with increasing age. In middle-aged men, endurance sport practice is associated with increased risk of AF but there are few studies among elderly people. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of long-term endurance sport practice as a risk factor for AF in elderly men. A crosssectional study ...
  • Do pre-hospital anaesthesiologists reliably predict mortality using the NACA severity score? A retrospective cohort study 

    Raatiniemi, Lasse; Mikkelsen, Kim; Fredriksen, Knut; Wisborg, Torben (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013-10-17)
    Introduction: The National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics’ (NACA) severity score is widely used in pre-hospital emergency medicine to grade the severity of illness or trauma in patient groups but is scarcely validated. The aim of this study was to assess the score’s ability to predict mortality and need for advanced in-hospital interventions in a cohort from one anaesthesiologistmanned helicopter ...

  • Elektroniske meldinger i spesialist- og kommunehelsetjenesten: Aktører og nettverk i samspill 

    Skotnes, Silje (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2022-05-04)
    Sammendrag Samhandlingsreformen er å anse som oppstarten for elektronisk kommunikasjon i helse- og omsorgssektoren. Denne dialogformen skulle bidra til raskere og sikrere informasjonsutveksling og sømløse pasientforløp. Forskning viser likevel utfordringsområder som bidrar til samhandlingsvansker de ulike tjenestenivåene imellom. Oppgavens problemstilling: «Hvordan skaper elektroniske meldinger ...
  • En undersøkelse av selvmordsrisikoens synlighet. Magefølelser under selvmordsrisikovurderinger. Hvor kan de komme fra og har de noen verdi? 

    Knudsen, Miriann Jessica (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2022-05-03)
    Temaet for denne masteroppgaven er magefølelser som behandlere i psykisk helsevern for voksne (PHV-v) kan erfare når de gjør selvmordsrisikovurderinger. Dagens verktøy for selvmorsrisikovurdering har lav predikasjonsverdi (3%). Internasjonale fagmiljø etterlyser derfor nye tilnærminger til hvordan forskning kan generere kunnskap for å forebygge selvmord. Forskningsspørsmålet er: På hvilke måter kan ...
  • Lett utviklingshemming og psykisk sykdom i møte med helsetjenesten: en kvalitativ studie som undersøker grenseflaten mellom kombinasjonen lett utviklingshemming og psykisk sykdom, og helsetilbudet. 

    Røstad, Charlotte Nathalie (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2022-05-04)
    Det stilles stadig større krav om at pasienten deltar i valg omhandlende egen behandling. Den nasjonale `hva er viktig for deg-dagen` ber om at helsepersonell spør hva som er viktig for deg, framfor hva feiler det deg. Det stilles og krav til brukere om å være delaktig i behandling. På en annen side av helsetjenesten viser en rapport av helsetilsynet i 2016 at personer med utviklingshemming ...
