Knowledge, experience and risk perception of healthcare workers in long-term care facilities and the receipt of seasonal influenza vaccination by Natalia L Lyons( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the CDC recommends that all healthcare workers be immunized against influenza, on average less than 50% of nurses comply. This project utilized four surveys as well as the observation of an established influenza vaccination intervention to determine what healthcare workers at long-term care facilities in New York City know about influenza, their previous experiences and perceptions of risk for influenza. There was statistically significant data suggesting an increase in knowledge by a healthcare worker if they had ever cared for a patient with the flu and ever having had a flu shot decreased the worry about getting the flu in the current flu season. There was also a significant change in knowledge after the intervention, however there were more correct scores before the intervention. Concerns about the H1N1 vaccine dominated the discussions about influenza. Interventions should be done closer to flu season and vaccines should be made available immediately following the sessions
State of nature : colonial power, neoliberal capital, and wildlife management in Tanzania by Elizabeth Keckley( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through an examination of the practice of wildlife conservation in colonial and postcolonial Tanzania, this dissertation explores the role of nature in the positioning of Africa and Africans within the global political and symbolic economy. Challenging popular representations of African wildlife conservation as the domain of charismatic white naturalists, the research focuses on the labor and experiences of African people involved in the work of managing and protecting Africa's game populations. By conceptualizing conservation as a mode of producing value from nature, I show how African labor is central to the ongoing production of the world's fascination with African wildlife, and how the value so-generated has shaped dynamics of class, state power, and capitalism in Tanzania over time. Far from being associated with African naturalness or global peripherality, I suggest, for many Tanzanians, wild animals symbolize the potential of nature to yield capital on a globally-significant scale. In their efforts to tap into the value of wildlife, however, Tanzanian people are confronted with a global symbolic system that associates them with African nature in similar ways as the game animals they seek to exploit. Work in conservation may hold out the promise of full membership in a globalized middle class, but in the course of their contact with Western tourists, donors, and scientists, Tanzanian wildlife professionals regularly encounter inequalities that remind them of the fundamentally colonial nature of the African wildlife conservation field
