Changing Demographics & Dementia: A Reflection on the Challenges Ahead for India

India being  the  second  most  populous  country  in  the  globe  is  expected  to  surpass  China  by  2022  (United  Nations  Report).  The demographic structure  of  India  is  changing  at  a  rapid  pace  with  an  increase  the  proportion  of  old  age  population  (Subaiya,  2011).  The elders are socially deprived and have little or no access to Social support, security and insurance. The old-age problems are not only associated with deteriorating physical health but also affects their mental well-being. However, the ageing literature is closely associated with physical health problems often ignoring the mental issues owing to social stigma attached with it.

Factors affecting Mortality Rate of Infants and under Five in the Philippines

A gradual decrease of the mortality rate of infants and under five in the Philippines was recorded from 1996 to 2013. However, this sign of progress still requires additional efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goal of reducing the risk. This paper attempts to test empirically the different factors affecting mortality rate of infants and under five in the Philippines, an indicator in gauging health security using a time series data (1996-2013). This will serve as a basis in crafting policies that will critically and efficiently reduce the number of deaths. The average mortality rate of infants and under five was selected as the endogenous variable, Gross Domestic Product per capita and out of the pocket health expenditure were treated as the exogenous variable. Health expenditure total percentage of Gross Domestic Product and average percentage of immunization were the mediating variables.

The Three C’s of Effective Online Instruction: Published in Health Care Journal

Edelweiss Publications invite you submit your scientific work towards Nursing Care Journal. Although much focus is given to the technological and instructional delivery aspects of  online  learning,  there  is  also  much  research  available  that  indicates  that  online learners perceive instructional effectiveness in the online classroom based on cognitive and social aspects more so than the mechanisms for delivery of content. The perception that online learners do not crave a socially intimate and cognitively meaningful learning experience is false, and often these aspects contribute the greatest to the student’s overall satisfaction with the online learning experience. Behaviors and actions that can be modeled and implemented quite easily in any online course that will significantly increase the effectiveness of online instruction are those that develop and promote communication, connectivity, and compassion. In fact, the Institute for Higher Education Policy’s 2000 report of ben
