Aging and skilled performance : advances in theory and applications by Wendy A Rogers( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term ""skill"" encompasses an array of topics and issues. For example, individuals are skilled in a variety of domains such as chess, typing, air traffic control, or knitting; researchers study skill in a variety of ways, including speed of acquisition, accuracy of performance, and retention over time; and there are a variety of approaches to the study of skill such as computer modeling or experimental analysis. Contributing to the understanding of whether, how, when, and why skills may decline as a function of age is the goal of this volume. This book is based on the Aging and S

The need to develop and to apply a financial monitoring system that would include data on national and international HIV/AIDS financing persists. The UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) recommended at its fourth meeting, 4-7 April 1997, that the UNAIDS Secretariat prepare an overview of the funding level of national responses to HIV/AIDS in developing countries and countries in transition. The UNAIDS Secretariat and the François-Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health and Human Rights of the Harvard School of Public Health undertook the present collaborative study as a follow-up to this recommendation. This study provides a baseline on which to build a financial monitoring system for national and international HIV/AIDS financing. It also highlights a series of issues that need to be addressed in the development of such a system
Development and use of the Lives Saved Tool (LiST) : a model to estimate the impact of scaling up proven interventions on maternal, neonatal and child mortality( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the turn of the millennium, there was a widespread feeling in the child health community that the over 10 million annual deaths of under five children were not receiving the attention they deserved. A group of concerned scientists and policymakers gathered for a week in Bellagio, Italy, to prepare a series of articles arguing for increased funding for child survival actions, which became known as the Lancet Child Survival Series. The second article in the series included a formal attempt to estimate how many deaths could be saved by each intervention then available. This modelling exercise took into account the levels and causes of deaths in 42 low- and middle-income countries, and the effectiveness of interventions against each of these causes, providing estimates of how many lives could be saved if then current coverage levels could be scaled up to reach all mothers and children. These calculations were carried out using a series of spreadsheets where the best existing data were inserted. The results were remarkable: no fewer than two-thirds of all under five deaths, or over 6 million a year could be saved if every mother and child received a handful of proven interventions. The Bellagio spreadsheets were sufficiently accurate for the purposes of this initial exercise and made an important contribution to placing child survival back on the international agenda. However, from a methodological standpoint there was substantial room for improvement. The articles in this supplement report on the methods and assumptions behind the Lives Saved Tool (LiST). This software was inspired by the Bellagio exercise, but went much further in terms of the background mortality data used, the quality of the literature reviews on intervention effectiveness and of the modelling process itself. LiST is relatively user-friendly and is becoming widely used at the country level to identify how much impact can be achieved by scaling up different interventions."--Page i1

Aggregation bias and the use of regression in evaluating models of human performance by Neff Walker( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Regression analyses are increasingly being used to provide confirmatory evidence for models of human performance. The amount of information made available to judge these models is reduced because clearly established standards in the techniques of performing and reporting regression analyses are lacking. This paper addresses two primary problems in regression analysis: (1) aggregation of data and (2) the aggregation of variables into composite models. The paper provides examples of the misuse of regression techniques and recommends ways that the amount of information made available to evaluate the model being tested can be maximized in analysis and reporting."
