Though postsecondary participation has increased overall, the rate of participation has risen more sharply for middle-class students compared with working-class students (Knighton & Mirza, 2002). Especially pronounced is Krahn’s (2009) finding that children from families where at least one...
Characterization of magnetic nanoparticles as contrast agents and their application for quantitative magnetic susceptibility monitoring of the waterflooding of heavy oil in real timeDownload
Waterflooding is one enhanced oil recovery process used in heavy oil reservoirs such as at Cold Lake in North-Eastern Alberta. However, little has been published in terms of imaging heavy oil waterfloods, mainly due to the similar densities of water and heavy oil, which makes it difficult to...
Conservation and ecology of bryophytes in partially harvested boreal mixed-wood forests of west-central CanadaDownload
This thesis examined the efficacy of residual forest structure for the preservation and recovery of bryophytes five to six years after partial canopy harvest in boreal mixed-wood forests of northwestern Alberta, Canada. Bryophytes were sampled in two forest types that differed in pre-harvest...
Interventions that promote retention of experienced registered nurses in health care settings: A systematic review.
Interventions that promote retention of experienced registered nurses in health care settings: A systematic review.Download
AIM: The aim of this review was to report the effectiveness of strategies for retaining experienced Registered Nurses. BACKGROUND: Nursing researchers have noted that the projected nursing shortage, if not rectified, is expected to affect healthcare cost, job satisfaction and quality patient...
Kinetics studies of chemical reactions and quality changes in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) enriched milk treated with high-pressure sterilizationDownload
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a bioactive lipid naturally found in milk, is thermally degraded through oxidation during thermal processing. Finding alternatives to enhance the retention of CLA is challenging. In this thesis, high-pressure sterilization (HPS) was used to enhance CLA retention in...
Recruiting well-qualified nurses into managerial positions is problematic because of the challenges associated with the role, the nursing shortage and the attraction of other opportunities within nursing. Leadership behavior is known to influence staff nurse retention and ultimately patient care...
The effectiveness of Return to Duty Intervention: Evaluating an interdisciplinary approach to supporting Canadian Armed Forces members who have physical and non-physical disordersDownload
The rate of musculoskeletal and mental health disorders is high in the Canadian Armed Forces, and can preclude service members from being employable and deployable. The aim of this thesis was to analyze the effectiveness of the Return to Duty intervention at decreasing morbidity and assisting...
Tooth-anchored vs. bone-anchored maxillary expansion: a randomized controlled trial comparing dental and skeletal effectsDownload
Aim: To investigate the differences, if any, between tooth-anchored maxillary expansion (TME) and bone-anchored maxillary expansion (BME) in terms of the produced longitudinal dentoskeletal changes -and the stability of these changes- in adolescents with maxillary constriction. Methods: Sixty...
