1. Cruz, Ellis Cleuza Lopes Ramos da. WEB 2.0 sites in health care services barriers to adoption : case study at Fresenius Nephocare.

Degree: 2015, Technical University of Lisbon

Mestrado em Gestão de Sistemas de Informação

As Tecnologias de Informação são actualmente transversais a quase todos os sectores de actividade, incluindo os serviços de saúde. Relativamente aos serviços de saúde, há uma quantidade incomensurável de informações encontrada na Internet, através de redes sociais, comunidades online e sites especializados, e hoje os utilizadores criam o seu próprio conteúdo com ajuda das tecnologias web 2.0, permitindo a construção de uma enorme base de dados criada por utilizadores para os utilizadores. No entanto isto traz-nos dúvidas em relação a fraca aderência a esses sites web 2.0 relacionadas com os serviços de saúde, sobre quais os motivos ou causas por detrás dessa fraca aderência? O objectivo desta investigação é encontrar orientações que nos ajudarão a responder à questão de investigação: "Quais as barreiras de adoção aos sites Web 2.0 nos serviços de saúde", em pacientes portadores de IRC (insuficiência renal crônica). Para tal, foi escolhido o método de estudo de caso, usando uma estratégia exploratória e descritiva, resultantes do questionário aos pacientes de uma clínica de hemodiálise, bem como entrevistas, feitas à profissionais da área que trabalham em associações, hospitais e clínicas para complementar o estudo de caso. Mostrar as maiores barreiras de adoção encontradas, bem como perceber se existem novas oportunidades inerentes aos sites web 2.0 nos serviços de saúde, na perspectiva dos utilizadores e profissionais, bem como o risco-benefício associado.

Information technologies are currently transversal to almost every sectors of activity, including health care services. In health care services there is an immeasurable quantity of information over the internet, through social networks, online communities and specialized websites, and today users create their own content using web 2.0 technologies, allowing the construction of an enormous database created by users for the users. However it brings a doubt regarding the poor adherence to these web 2.0 sites health-related , so if there is a cause or reason , what it would be? So the aim of this investigation is to find guidelines that will help us to answer the question: ?What are the barriers to adoption of Web 2.0 sites in healthcare services?, within patients with CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease). For such, the case study method was chosen, using an exploratory and descriptive strategy resulting from the survey of patients attending a clinic of hemodialysis, as well as interviews, made to professionals who work in associations, hospitals and clinics to augment the case study. The goal is to show the biggest barriers of adoption encountered as well as realize new opportunities inherent to web 2.0 sites in the health system, from the perspective of users and professionals, as well as the risk-benefit associated.

3. Howenstine, Julie Anne. Recruitment Strategies Aiming to Attract Females into Undergraduate Engineering Programs: Examining Their Role and Use.

Degree: PhD, Higher Education, 2013, University of Toledo

By 2009, the percentage of women who graduated with general undergraduate degrees had increased to almost 58% of all students who completed 4-year degree programs (National Center for Education Statistics, 2009a). These percentages, however, have not been reflected in the enrollment rates of females into undergraduate engineering programs. In 2009, the percentage of females enrolled in undergraduate engineering degrees was only 13% (National Center for Education Statistics, 2009b). Education is a lifelong decision and individuals are becoming more psychologically involved in their college choice (Maringe & Gibbs, 2009). Recruitment activities are only one factor in the college choice decision but are an important one. Recruitment strategies to attract under-represented groups to the field of engineering had in general lacked success. Recruitment is a way to represent and promote a college or a university truthfully to those who are seeking information about it (National Association for College Admission Counseling, 2009). Recruiting consists of initiatives and materials which serve to persuade prospective students to enroll in schools and specific degree programs. Understanding the specific types of recruitment strategies created for women and the way recruitment impacts enrollment trends of women will help institutions become more effective at attracting female students into engineering programs. While research on recruitment has identified some recruitment strategies effective in attracting women to engineering, such as mentoring to prospective students (Ocif & Marshall-Goodell, 1996; Wilkins et al., 2006), marketing learning and living communities (Jaschik, 2010; Kuh et al., 2006; Stinson, 1990; Trenor, 2007; Washington Center website, 2011), as well as offering female-focused financial aid programs (Astin 1997; Cech et al., 2008) to prospective students, we still do not fully understand the whole array of recruitment strategies geared towards women. This study explored, for the first time, the array of recruitment strategies used by institutions to recruit women into undergraduate engineering degree programs. Its purpose was to map what institutions do to recruit women into undergraduate engineering programs, and shed light on why and how these institutions use the recruitment strategies they use. In addition this study aimed to analyze a potential relationship of strategies geared specifically for women with enrollment trends of female undergraduates in engineering programs. Although the study identified a host of traditional and specialized recruitment strategies geared for women, it also confirmed that many institutions have not yet initiated activities to recruit women to their engineering programs. Amongst those women-specific recruitment initiatives that the study identified, mentoring programs, female-focused financial aid, and female campus visits emerged as the prevalent ones. In addition, institutions often included female students and faculty as recruiters and role models, emphasized the need to build… Advisors/Committee Members: Slantcheva-Durst, Snejana (Advisor).
