Healthcare professionals' adoption and use of a clinical information system (CIS) in primary care: Insights from the Da Vinci study
Given the increasing prevalence of multimorbidity in primary care (PC), interdisciplinary PC teams supported by appropriate clinical information systems (CIS) are needed in order to deal with the complexity of multimorbid patients' care. Our team has developed such a system, called the Da Vinci system.
How we relate to brands: Psychological and neurophysiological insights into consumer-brand relationships
In three experiments, this research provides new insights into branding by studying the psychological and neurophysiological mechanisms of how consumers relate to their beloved brands.
Predicting the need for CT imaging in children with minor head injury using an ensemble of Naive Bayes classifiers
Objective: Using an automatic data-driven approach, this paper develops a prediction model that achieves more balanced performance (in terms of sensitivity and specificity) than the Canadian Assessment of Tomography for Childhood Head Injury (CATCH) rule, when predicting the need for computed tomography (CT) imaging of children after a minor head injury.
In contrast with sick people who need urgent medical attention, the clientele of preventive healthcare have a choice in whether to participate in the programs offered in their region. In order to maximize the total participation to a preventive care program, it is important to incorporate how potential clients choose the facilities to patronize.
Entangled strands: A process perspective on the evolution of careers in the context of personal, family, work, and community life
The goal of this study is to develop a theoretical framework to illuminate the process of careers unfolding over time in an overall life context. We draw on data from a qualitative field study of the career paths of 81 professionals who pursued working on a reduced-load basis as a strategy for sustaining commitment to both their careers and family lives.
This research examines benevolent leadership and makes three key contributions to organizational research. The first contribution is a theoretical one; the development of a theory-grounded conceptual model of benevolent leadership based on four streams of creating common good in organizations: morality, spirituality, vitality, and community.
Large-scale online communities rely on computer-mediated communication between participants, enabling them to sustain interactions and exchange on a scale hitherto unknown. Yet little research has focused on how these online communities sustain themselves and how their interactions are structured.
We study two prevailing types of take-back schemes for electrical and electronic equipment waste recycling: monopolistic and competitive. We address key market and operating factors that make one scheme preferable to the other from the viewpoints of recyclers, manufacturers, and consumers.
A gerontological network as an interface between healthcare professionals and homecare professionals
This study aims to investigate healthcare professionals' perceptions of the links between the various actors involved in older patient care (professionals, health services and community services) and to examine the perceived impact of a gerontological network among a range of different actors.
Comprehensive, multi-level approaches are required to address obesity. One important target for intervention is the economic domain. The purpose of this study was to synthesize existing evidence regarding the impact of economic policies targeting obesity and its causal behaviours (diet, physical activity), and to make specific recommendations for the Canadian context.
