  • Mirror Neurons, Theory of

    Corballis, Michael (2015)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    Mirror neurons, first identified in the monkey brain, respond both when an animal makes a hand movement and when it observes another individual making the same movement. A corresponding but more elaborate system in the human brain has emerged to incorporate such social functions as language, empathy, theory of mind, and cultural learning. The roles of mirror neurons suggest that the mind functions as an embodied system, grounded in real-world simulations, rather than a system based on the manipulation of abstract symbols.

  • Tourism and ecosystem services in New Zealand

    Simmons, D. G.

    Book item
    Lincoln University

    Tourism is an important and growing economic activity in New Zealand. While promotional activities highlight New Zealand’s biodiversity and ‘clean green’ image under a 100% pure brand, relatively little is known of its draw on ecosystem functions and services. Preliminary analyses of the sector’s eco-efficiency highlight both the complexity of the sector and its relatively-polluting nature. Tourism is, however, a two-edged sword in that it also provides an economic initiative for the designation and management of protected natural areas. Given the size, activity volumes and growth trajectory of the sector, non-market and resource-use and efficiency evidence to support tourism policy and planning is now urgently required.

  • Global Regulation of Nanotechnologies and Their Products in Medicine

    Moore, Jennifer (2013)

    Book item
    University of Otago

    Nanotechnology, an emerging technology, is creating innovative medicinal products for clinical use. The convergence of nanotechnologies with medicine is predicted to transform the health care sector, particularly pharmaceutical development. Jurisdictions, such as the European Union, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand, have witnessed the launch of medical products containing nanomaterials. Many of the nanomedicines on the market, in clinical testing, or under regulatory review, promise to improve existing products and treat diseases more effectively. The purposes of this chapter are to (a) describe nanotechnology, in particular, its clinical applications; (b) analyze the application of medical products regulation in several jurisdictions (the European Union, United States, Australia, and New Zealand); and (c) assess the adequacy of this law for managing the potential risks posed by nanomedicines. There are gaps in the public health/health science evidence about the risks associated with nanomedicines, and there is concern that the novel properties of some nanomedicines will bring unforeseen human and environmental health and safety risks. Analysts project that, by 2014, the market for medical products containing nanomaterials will be US$18 billion per year. Given the predicted market for nanomedicines, and the growing evidence of their potential risks, it is important to have adequate regulation of these products to prevent adverse public health outcomes. Regulators and clinicians will need to consider the risks posed by some nanomedicines against the potential benefits to patients who are prescribed these products.

  • The Impact of Therapeutic Jurisprudence on the New Zealand Coronial Jurisdiction

    Moore, Jennifer (2015)

    Book item
    University of Otago

    Coroners in New Zealand can make recommendations that may reduce the chances of occurrence of similar deaths in the future. Coronial recommendations can have pro-therapeutic outcomes. The recommendations hold therapeutic promise for bereaved families by refocusing families towards prevention of similar deaths. However, when coroners' recommendations are not implemented, this has counter-therapeutic outcomes for the community who deserve remedial action, and for families who hoped for change. This chapter uses evidence from New Zealand's first empirical study of coroners' recommendations. An empirical approach is taken because therapeutic jurisprudence is concerned with assessing the law's impact on people, and the study of impacts often requires data about people's experiences of legal processes.

  • Computer literacy: where are nurse educators on the continuum?

    Hanley, E. (2006)

    Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology, Te Wānanga Ōtautahi

    Computers are becoming ubiquitous in health and education, and it is expected that nurses from undergraduate nursing programmes are computer literate when they enter the workforce. Similarly nurse educators are expected to be computer literate to model the use of information technology in their workplace. They are expected to use email for communication and a range of computer applications for presentation of course materials and reports. Additionally as more courses are delivered in flexible mode educators require more comprehensive computing skills, including confidence and competence in a range of applications. A cohort of nurse educators from one tertiary institution was surveyed to assess their perceived computer literacy and how they attained this. A questionnaire that covered seven domains of computer literacy was used to assess this. The results were illuminating and identified specific training needs for this group. Their perceived lack of skill with Groupwise email and the student database program are of concern as these are essential tools for nurse educators at this polytechnic.
