METHODS: Students are provided with evidence-based health behaviour guidelines for prevention of heart disease. Students select whichever behaviour...

Improving research on parental involvement in sexuality education: Findings from the Irish Contraception and Crisis Pregnancy Survey – 2010

Caroline Kelleher, Daniel Boduszek, Ashling Bourke, Orla McBride & Karen Morgan
Sexuality education research has highlighted the importance of parental involvement2. Parents largely concur with the idea that they should play a fundamental role in their children’s sexuality education; indeed, 95% of parents in one national UK study felt that discussing contraception with their children was primarily their responsibility3. However, only 58% of those parents had actually done so, suggesting that these beliefs are not always reflected in practice3. Investigating sexuality education frequently occurs via national...

Primary health care models and suitability for provision of e-services: an overview.

Borislav D. Dimitrov & Tom Fahey
We present an overview of the most frequently distributed types of primary health care (PHC) models of delivery across different countries and cultural environments. We summarise and describe most important definitions, principles of classification, attributes, necessary conditions (e.g., patient-management systems, electronic health records, ICT platforms) and organisation and key performance indicators (KPI) for functioning of the primary health care systems. We review and explore the suitability of different PHC models for provision of electronic (e-)services.

SiteBinder: an improved approach for comparing multiple protein structural motifs.

David Sehnal, Radka Svobodová Vařeková, Heinrich J. Huber, Stanislav Geidl, , Michaela Wimmerová & Jaroslav Koča
There is a paramount need to develop new techniques and tools that will extract as much information as possible from the ever growing repository of protein 3D structures. We report here on the development of a software tool for the multiple superimposition of large sets of protein structural motifs. Our superimposition methodology performs a systematic search for the atom pairing that provides the best fit. During this search, the RMSD values for all chemically relevant...
