The twelfth-century Lais of Marie de France, twelve short narrative romances in French verse, are a delightfully heterogenous mixture of old Celtic, classical, Anglo-Norman and Christian themes and motifs. At times these varied streams of influence stand together in unreconciled incongruity....
Assessment of Variation in the Alberta Context Tool: The Contribution of Unit Level Contextual Factors and Specialty in Canadian Pediatric Acute Care SettingsDownload

Focus groups are a useful data-generation strategy in qualitative health research when it is important to understand how social contexts shape participants’ health. However, when cross-lingual focus groups are conducted across cultural groups, and in languages in which the researcher is not...

German translation of the Alberta context tool and two measures of research use: Methods, challenges and lessons learned.Download
Background Understanding the relationship between organizational context and research utilization is key to reducing the research-practice gap in health care. This is particularly true in the residential long term care (LTC) setting where relatively little work has examined the influence of...
This thesis is based on a textual analysis of three translations of a book in the New Testament, Ephesians, to look for differences in the translators’ treatment of gender. The three versions used are the older 1984 New International Version (NIV) and a retranslation of the NIV that uses...
