How a revolutionary art became official culture : murals, museums, and the Mexican state by Mary K Coffey( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A public art movement initiated by the post-revolutionary state, Mexican muralism has long been admired for its depictions of popular struggle and social justice. Mary K. Coffey revises traditional accounts of Mexican muralism by describing how a radical art movement was transformed into official culture, ultimately becoming a tool of state propaganda. Analyzing the incorporation of mural art into Mexico's most important public museums - the Palace of Fine Arts, the National History Museum, and the National Anthropology Museum - Coffey illuminates the institutionalization of muralism and the political and aesthetic issues it raised. She focuses on the period between 1934, when Jose Clemente Orozco and Diego Rivera were commissioned to create murals in the Palace of Fine Arts, through the crisis of state authority in the 1960s. Coffey illuminates a reciprocal relationship between Mexico's mural art and its museums. Muralism shaped exhibition practices, which affected the politics, aesthetics, and reception of mural art. Interpreting the iconography of Mexico's murals, she focuses on representations of mestizo identity, the pre-eminent symbol of post-revolutionary Mexico. Coffey argues that those gendered representations reveal a national culture project more invested in race and gender inequality than in race and class equality."--Publisher's description

Paint the revolution : Mexican modernism, 1910-1950( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the wake of the 1910-20 Revolution, Mexico emerged as a center of modern art, closely watched around the world. Highlighted are the achievements of the tres grandes (three greats)-José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros-and other renowned figures such as Rufino Tamayo and Frida Kahlo, but the book goes beyond these well-known names to present a fuller picture of the period from 1910 to 1950. Fourteen essays by authors from both the United States and Mexico offer a thorough reassessment of Mexican modernism from multiple perspectives. Some of the texts delve into thematic topics-developments in mural painting, the role of the government in the arts, intersections between modern art and cinema, and the impact of Mexican art in the United States-while others explore specific modernist genres-such as printmaking, photography, and architecture. This beautifully illustrated book offers a comprehensive look at the period that brought Mexico onto the world stage during a period of political upheaval and dramatic social change. - Published on the occasion of the exhibition, held at Philadelphia Museum of Art, October 25, 2016 - January 8, 2017; Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico City, February 3 - April 30, 2017; and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, June - September 2017

The role of Hispanic race/ethnicity and poverty in breast cancer survival by David J Delgado( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The association of Hispanic race/ethnicity and poverty with general survival time and breast cancer survival time was examined for a total of 14,896 breast cancer patients (14,035 White and 861 Hispanic) included in the National Cancer Institute Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (NCI SEER) program in New Mexico and San Francisco between 1975 and 1984. Variables examined included: age, marital status, stage at diagnosis, tumor histology, delay, treatment, period of diagnosis (1975-79 vs. 1980-84), and poverty. Univariate analysis of 14,896 patients indicated that a greater proportion of Hispanics (vs. Whites) with breast cancer were: younger than age 50, married, diagnosed at a later stage, diagnosed in New Mexico, lived in greater poverty, were diagnosed between 1980-84, and died from breast cancer. Univariate Cox Proportion Hazards analysis indicated that poverty was a significant predictor for reduced general survival time. Being diagnosed in the 1980-84 period was a predictor for improved general survival time. Poverty and Hispanic race/ethnicity were significant predictors of reduced breast cancer survival time. Multivariate Cox Proportional Hazards models indicated that Hispanic race/ethnicity was a significant risk factor for breast cancer survival time for women aged 50 and older. For White women: state, marital status, poverty, surgery, radiation/hormonal treatments, and histology were significant risk factors for breast cancer survival time. For Hispanic women: stage, surgery, hormonal treatment and period of diagnosis were significant risk factors for breast cancer survival time. For White breast cancer patients, period of diagnosis was not a significant risk factor for reduced breast cancer survival time; but for Hispanics, it was a significant risk factor. In the age and race/ethnicity-stratified models of breast cancer survival time, similar risk factors emerged for both Whites and Hispanics. For both younger and older Hispanics, being diagnosed in the early 1980's (vs. the late 1970's) was associated with reduced breast cancer survival time--vs. Whites, who experienced no significant change in breast cancer survival time in the same time period. Poverty was not a predictor for Hispanic survival time in any of the models; however, it was a predictor for younger Whites for breast cancer survival time. These results fueled discussion in three areas targeting breast cancer in underserved women: the development of racial/ethnic-specific cancer control guidelines, the development of a breast cancer integrated delivery system, and population management (Au)
The optimal utilization proportion of external beam radiotherapy in European countries : an ESTRO-HERO analysis( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The absolute number of new cancer patients that will require at least one course of radiotherapy in each country of Europe was estimated. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The incidence and relative frequency of cancer types from the year 2012 European Cancer Observatory estimates were used in combination with the population-based stage at diagnosis from five cancer registries. These data were applied to the decision trees of the evidence-based indications to calculate the Optimal Utilization Proportion (OUP) by tumour site. RESULTS: In the minimum scenario, the OUP ranged from 47.0% in the Russian Federation to 53.2% in Belgium with no clear geographical pattern of the variability among countries. The impact of stage at diagnosis on the OUP by country was rather limited. Within the 24 countries where data on actual use of radiotherapy were available, a gap between optimal and actual use has been observed in most of the countries. CONCLUSIONS: The actual utilization of radiotherapy is significantly lower than the optimal use predicted from the evidence based estimates in the literature. This discrepancy poses a major challenge for policy makers when planning the resources at the national level to improve the provision in European countries

Relational coordination : an exploration of nursing units, an emergency department and in-patient transfers by Mary K Coffey( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Emergency department (ED) crowding is a patient safety concern that has been increasing for more than a decade. Increased visits have resulted in ED crowding, longer wait times, ambulance diversions, and boarding of admitted patients (Hing & Bhuiya, 2012). Numerous factors affect ED crowding. Once various extraneous issues are resolved and a bed is available for a patient, it becomes the responsibility of nurses across unit boundaries to coordinate the patient transfer. This study applies Relational Coordination Theory (RCT) as a framework to provide nurses insight into the relational aspects of their work in the transfer of ED patients to inpatient beds. Relational coordination is a mutually reinforcing process of interaction between communication and relationships that is carried out for the purpose of task interaction. It is useful for coordinating work that is highly interdependent, uncertain, and time constrained (Gittell, 2002). Nurses work during ED transfers requires task interaction as they coordinate their efforts. This study, guided by RCT, will examine relational and communication dynamics among nurses within their own units and across unit boundaries as they interact during ED transfers. A cross-sectional, descriptive design will explore the seven dimensions of Relational Coordination (RC) during ED admissions and explain nurses relational and communication dimensions that may influence ED boarding times. The results of this study provide new information and a sound theoretical model on which to base future research
The impact of cancer incidence and stage on optimal utilization of radiotherapy : methodology of a population based analysis by the ESTRO-HERO project( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Background and purpose The impact of differences in the distribution of major cancer sites and stages at diagnosis among 4 European countries on the optimal utilization proportion (OUP) of patients who should receive external beam radiotherapy was assessed within the framework of the ESTRO-HERO project. Materials and methods Data from Australian Collaboration for Cancer Outcomes Research and Evaluation (CCORE) were used. Population based stages at diagnosis from the cancer registries of Belgium, Slovenia, the Greater Poland region of Poland, and The Netherlands were used to assess the OUP for each country. A sensitivity analysis was carried out. Results The overall OUP by country varied from the lowest of 48.3% in Australia to the highest of 53.4% in Poland; among European countries the variation was limited to 3%. Cancer site specific OUPs showed differences according to the variability in stage at diagnosis across countries. The most important impact on the OUP by country was due to changes in relative frequency of tumours rather than stage at diagnosis. Conclusions This methodology can be adapted using European data, thus facilitating the planning of resources required to cope with the demand for radiotherapy in Europe, taking into account the national variability in cancer incidence
