Ethnic and Foreign-Language Media Ethnic and foreign-language media has a long and storied history in the United States: Benjamin Franklin printed the first German-language Bible in the United States, in addition to widely available German hymnals and textbooks Pavlenko, Lopez and Gonzalez-Barrera found that a majority of Latino adults say they get at least some of their news in Spanish, although that number was declining. And while the panel found no comparable data on general news consumption among Asian Americans, Wong and colleagues reported that the consumption of news about politics shows a significantly higher proportion of Asian Americans than Latino Americans who get their political news exclusively in English.
Included in the discussion will be specific nursing functions, intervention and liaison activities which will assist the Claims Examiner CE in managing cases. Back to Chapter Table of Contents 2. In its broadest scope, case management is a comprehensive approach to minimize the length and perhaps the extent of disability in some compensation cases.
In this process, nurses will play a vital role by participating in the early, aggressive medical management of cases.
Back to Chapter Table of Contents 3. Nurses involved in case management may be OWCP staff members or private sector professionals working with the program on a contractual basis.
While the latter Field Nurse can perform only the actual interventions, the OWCP Staff Nurse may coordinate nurse intervention as well as actually intervening in cases. The Nurse Intervenor Role. The Staff or Field Nurse functioning in this role will be working closely with OWCP office staff and claimants, physicians in the community, and employing agencies to assist in the return to work effort.
For clarity, a nurse acting in this role will be designated as Field Nurse throughout this chapter. The Nurse Coordinator Role. The OWCP Staff Nurse acting in this capacity is responsible for coordinating the nurse intervention process in the district office.
Back to Chapter Table of Contents 4. Types of Nurse Intervention.
The nurse intervention process can be classified according to the degree of interaction: The Staff Nurse determines the appropriate type of intervention based on the diagnosis, the severity of the injury or illness and demographic considerations.
Limited intervention consists of telephone interaction only. This method provides the ability to reach a greater number of claimants and is most effective in uncomplicated sprains and strains with a delayed return to work date.
Phone contact is initiated with the claimant and details of the injury are discussed. In the follow-up phone calls, the nurse reinforces the treatment regimes of the treating physician and formulates return to work plans with the claimant and treating physician.
While phone contacts are not restricted as to frequency, the nurse must keep in mind that too many phone contacts may inadvertently reinforce patients who exhibit high levels of pain and illness behavior. If contacts are set up on an as-needed basis, patients having the most difficulty will likely get the most contact.
Intervention, to be effective, should be completed within four months. Moderate intervention combines both phone calls and face-to-face interaction.In statistics, quality assurance, and survey methodology, sampling is the selection of a subset (a statistical sample) of individuals from within a statistical population to estimate.

ASSET Science Exam - ASSET is a diagnostic test which actually helps students improve.
ASSET measures how well a student has understood concepts and gives detailed feedback on the same, to help them improve. The following is an IHIP outline for grades K-8 (subject requirements and hours required change for grades ).
The same outline can be used for a quarterly report.
