This paper describes the method used to develop the One Stop Crisis Centre (OSCC) Portal, an open-source web-based electronic patient record system (EPR) for the One Stop Crisis Center, Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia (HUSM) in Kelantan, Malaysia. Features and functionalities of the system are presented to demonstrate the workflow. Use ...

This companion-discussion paper advocates the need for a quality assurance model for successful acquisition of e-health solutions in rural healthcare centres. We argue that the quality of the entire system is highly influenced by the quality of the processes used to acquire, develop, implement and maintain it. Central to these ...

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) solutions (e.g. e-health, telemedicine, e-education) are often viewed as vehicles to bridge the digital divide between rural and urban healthcare centres and to resolve shortcomings in the rural health sector. This study focused on factors perceived to influence the uptake and use of ICTs as ...

General practitioners (GPs) are an integral part of the multidisciplinary team that care for patients with lung cancer. It is essential that patient information including results of tests, management plans, treatment, and follow-up arrangements are communicated between hospital-based carers and the community-based GP The aim of this study was to ...

Recent cases have drawn attention to the issue of individual autonomy and what is sometimes referred to as 'the right to die'. Adult patients who are mentally competent have the right to refuse medical treatment even when that refusal can lead to worsening ill health and even death. This refusal ...

Treatment of residents living in aged care facilities presents a challenge to the traditional model of general practitioner (GP)-patient interactions, which rely on patients having the mobility to visit a GP's rooms, to transport themselves for follow-up tests, and are cooperative in taking medications. Aged care residents lack mobility and ...

Smectite genesis is generally considered to require an alkaline environment, for in acid environments it is reportedly unstable. This study shows that smectite is forming in an acid, texture-contrast soil in the Pilliga State Forests in north-western New South Wales. Three modes of smectite genesis in the study soil are ...

Bauxite-processing residue sand (BRS) is the primary growth medium used to rehabilitate Alcoa's residue storage areas (RSAs) in south-west Western Australia. This material is typically coarse-textured, highly saline, highly alkaline, extremely sodic, and deficient in plant nutrients. To develop appropriate fertiliser strategies for optimising rehabilitation performance, a fundamental understanding of ...

Spatial variability of soil drainage, topsoil phosphate retention (P-retention), and clay mineralogy were investigated in soils on a Manawatu river terrace developed from a mixture of loamy tephra, loess, and quartzo-feldspathic alluvial parent material. The cause of short-distance variation in soil drainage was investigated on an area of 60 ha ...

Clearing native vegetation and introducing crops and pastures may increase deep drainage and result in dryland salinity. In south-west Queensland, native vegetation of the Goondoola Basin has been substantially cleared for cropping and pastoral activities, resulting in shallow groundwater and localised salinity.

Grazing of livestock on pasture land can result in changes to the physical condition of soil, particularly as a result of trampling and changed organic matter status of the topsoil. Over time, changes to pasture botanical composition may also occur, which might further affect soil structure. The extent of the ...

We investigated a method to measure sheet erosion by characterising the soil erosion of an upland field in a dryland environment. Digital photogrammetry was used to measure the erosion rates of soil surfaces packed to different densities under simulated rainfall or wind conditions. The photogrammetry system consisted of 2 digital ...

Soil organic carbon (SOC) affects many processes in soil. The main objective of this study was the prediction and uncertainty assessment of the spatial patterns of SOC through stochastic simulation using 2 simulation algorithms, sequential Gaussian simulation (sGs) and sequential indicator simulation (sis). The dataset consisted of 158 point measurements ...
Kader, Mohammed - - 2010
Reduced tillage (RT) management may increase surface soil organic carbon (SOC) and nitrogen (N), particularly due to accumulation of labile organic matter (OM). We investigated the effect of RT compared with conventional tillage (CT) on the distribution of SOC and N over different soil fractions from 7 pairs of fields ...

In Australia, pastures form the basis of the extensive livestock industries and are important components of crop rotation systems. Despite recent interest in the soil carbon sequestration value of pastures in the mitigation of climate change, little information is available on the soil carbon sequestration potential of pastures in New ...
Biggs, A.J.W. - - 2010
Considerable soil carbon research has occurred in Australia in recent years. A review of published literature suggests there are gaps in both the collection of associated data and the long-term storage of soil carbon data, thus limiting the potential use of these data beyond the original purpose. A more co-operative ...
