A study of Omaha Indian music by Alice C Fletcher( Book )

"Fletcher and Francis La Flesche, her Omaha coworker and adopted son, divided the songs into three categories: religious ones, to be sung by a certain class either through initiation or inheritance; social ones, involving dances and games, always sung by a group; and ones to be sung singly, including dream songs, love songs, captive songs, prayer songs, death songs, sweat lodge songs, and songs of thanks. John Comfort Fillmore, a professional musician, added a "Report on the Structural Peculiarities of the Music."" "Those interested in a vital aspect of Indian culture will want to own this book, which contains the musical scores as well as the native-language words for the songs."--Jacket

Nurses' Use of Restraints and Their Attitudes Toward Restraint Use and The Elderly in an Acute Care Setting by Helen Myers( )

1 edition published in 2001 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A descriptive correlation study was conducted in an acute-care hospital to explore the relationship between nurses' use of restraints and their attitudes toward restraint use and the elderly. A total of 201 nurses returned a questionnaire that collected demographic information and included two research instruments: (i) Perceptions of Restraint Use Questionnaire and (ii) Attitudes toward the Aged Semantic Differential. Results showed slightly positive attitudes towards the elderly and toward the use of restraints, although there was no correlation between scores on the two scales. Furthermore, nurses' attitudes did not predict their self-reported use of restraints
