A presente dissertação têm como problemática a violência conjugal sobre a mulher por parte do seu companheiro masculino, e como objeto empírico de investigação, o diagnóstico de necessidades de competências do Agente da PSP para efetuar um atendimento eficaz à mulher vítima de violência conjugal. Em termos específicos pretende estabelecer-se um perfil de competências profissionais, ao nível dos conhecimentos, habilidades e atitudes, que o profissional da PSP deve possuir para efetuar este atendimento com eficácia, dignidade e respeitando todos os aspetos dos direitos destas vítimas. Cientificamente, a realização de um diagnóstico de necessidades de competências conjetura várias etapas que objetivam definir as competências necessárias, as que se encontram em falta, e expor as que atualmente se possuem. Para atingir tal propósito auscultaram-se as visões dos diferentes atores que intervém neste crime através de três amostras distintas, respetivamente, Especialistas, Vítimas e Polícia. Em concreto catorze reconhecidos especialistas nacionais da área da violência doméstica, cem mulheres vítimas deste crime com denúncia efetuada à PSP, e cem profissionais desta Força de Segurança que acuam neste crime. O procedimento que delimita estas etapas anuncia no seu âmago os objetivos específicos. Neste âmbito...

Dissertação de mestrado em Engenharia Industrial; The third sector is made of nonprofit organizations (NPO), these acts on gaps that aren’t fulfilled by the public and private sector. The organizations that are in the third sector have been registering a notorious growth and have been having an important part in: the economic growth, the fight against the unemployment, social exclusion and in the local development. Forced to act on the market as social enterprises and with the need to obtain profit margins, there is a need, created by the NPO ́s, of an efficient management of their operations. That can be achieved with techniques and processes of project management. The Project Management promotes the use of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques, oriented to the pursuit of pre-defined goals, and it has been demonstrating its value in private organizations. It is in this line of though that project management can be an asset to the NPO. These work aims to study the use and impact of project management in NPOs, particularly to identify determinants associated with the adoption of project management practices in NPOs. The first step consists of: understanding the way NPO´s work, identifying the existing project management practices...

The objective of this study was to explore public health informatics (PHI) training programs that currently exist to meet the growing demand for a trained global workforce. We used several search engines, scientific databases, and the websites of informatics organizations; sources included PubMed, Google, the American Medical Informatics Organization, and the International Medical Informatics Organization. The search was conducted from May to July 2011 and from January to February 2012 using key words such as informatics, public health informatics, or biomedical informatics along with academic programs, training, certificate, graduate programs, or postgraduate programs. Course titles and catalog descriptions were gathered from the program or institution websites. Variables included PHI program categories, location and mode of delivery, program credits, and costs. Each course was then categorized based on its title and description as available on the Internet. Finally, we matched course titles and descriptions with the competencies for PHIs determined by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Descriptive analysis was performed to report means and frequency distributions for continuous and categorical variables. Stratified analysis was performed to explore average credits and cost per credit among both the public and private institutions. Fifteen PHI programs were identified across 13 different institutions...

We assessed the occurrence of four safety concerns among labor and delivery teams: dangerous shortcuts, missing competencies, disrespect, and performance problems. 3282 participants completed surveys. 92% of physicians (906/985), 93% of midwives (385/414), and 98% of nurses (1846/1884) observed at least one concern within the preceding year. A majority of respondents said these concerns undermined patient safety, harmed patients, or led them to seriously consider transferring or leaving their positions. Only 9% of physicians, 13% of midwives, and 13% of nurses shared their full concerns with the person involved. Organizational silence is evident within labor and delivery teams. Improvement will require multiple strategies, employed at the personal, social, and structural levels.

Graduate training in biomedical informatics (BMI) is evolving rapidly. BMI graduate programs differ in informatics domain, delivery method, degrees granted, as well as breadth and depth of curricular competencies. Using the current American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) definition of BMI core competencies as a framework, we identified and labeled course offerings within graduate programs. From our qualitative analysis, gaps between defined competencies and curricula emerged. Topics missing from existing graduate curricula include community health, translational and clinical research, knowledge representation, data mining, communication and evidence-based practice.

There is growing evidence that inclusion of genetic information about known common susceptibility variants may enable population risk-stratification and personalized prevention for common diseases including cancer. This would require the inclusion of genetic testing as an integral part of individual risk assessment of an asymptomatic individual. Front line health professionals would be expected to interact with and assist asymptomatic individuals through the risk stratification process. In that case, additional knowledge and skills may be needed. Current guidelines and frameworks for genetic competencies of non-specialist health professionals place an emphasis on rare inherited genetic diseases. For common diseases, health professionals do use risk assessment tools but such tools currently do not assess genetic susceptibility of individuals. In this article, we compare the skills and knowledge needed by non-genetic health professionals, if risk-stratified prevention is implemented, with existing competence recommendations from the UK, USA and Europe, in order to assess the gaps in current competences. We found that health professionals would benefit from understanding the contribution of common genetic variations in disease risk, the rationale for a risk-stratified prevention pathway...

The authors report on a survey of primary public and private schools in rural Pakistan with a focus on student achievement as measured through test scores. Absolute learning is low compared with curricular standards and international norms. Tested at the end of the third grade, a bare majority had mastered the K-I mathematics curriculum and 31 percent could correctly form a sentence with the word "school" in the vernacular (Urdu). As in high-income countries, bivariate comparisons show that higher learning is associated with household wealth and parental literacy. In sharp contrast to high-income countries, these gaps decrease dramatically in a multivariate regression once differences between children in the same school are looked at. Consequently, the largest gaps are between schools. The gap in English test scores between government and private schools, for instance, is 12 times the gap between children from rich and poor families. To contextualize these results within a broader South Asian context, the authors use data from public schools in the state of Uttar Pradesh in India. Levels of learning and the structure of the educational gaps are similar in the two samples. As in Pakistan, absolute learning is low and the largest gaps are between schools: the gap between good and bad government schools...

Educators believe that they are adequately preparing youth for the labor market while employers lament the lack of skills. A possible source of the mismatch in perceptions is that employers and educators have different understandings of the types of skills valued in the labor market. This paper uses economics and psychology literature to define four skills sets: socio-emotional, higher-order cognitive, basic cognitive, and technical skills. The paper reviews the literature that quantitatively measures employer skill demand, as reported in preference surveys. A sample of 28 studies reveals remarkable consistency across the world in the skills demanded by employers. Although employers value all skill sets, there is a greater demand for socio-emotional and higher-order cognitive skills than for basic cognitive or technical skills. These results are robust across economy size and level of development, sector, export-orientation, and occupations. Employers perceive that the greatest skills gaps are in socio-emotional and technical skills. These findings suggest the need to re-conceptualize education and training systems. Taking into consideration the developmental process to acquire the skills identified by employers...

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; Operational contracting support provided by the Army Mission and Installation Contracting Command to the warfighter includes everything from acquiring the necessary equipment, supplies, and services vital to the mission to the overall well-being of the Army Soldiers and their families. The Army faces issues and challenges throughout the acquisition process, particularly in the contracting career field. Assessing any contracting knowledge gap can be a challenge because of the sheer magnitude of the required knowledge involved in Department of Defense contract management. To capture the data needed to measure and analyze tacit knowledge and explicit knowledge, a knowledge assessment tool was used. Following the distribution of the assessment tool, an analysis of the knowledge gap was performed on multiple demographic categories. This information enables organizations to develop an on the job training task management guide that will not only train contracting personnel in all of the contracting phases but also focus in on the knowledge gaps identified within the research. Furthermore, there will be an increased visibility for supervisors and contracting officers to provide the feedback necessary through supplemental training to ensure the readiness of the contracting specialists within the 1102 career field.

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; The United States Air Force (USAF) spends billions of dollars each year on procurement contracts ranging from simple services to major weapons systems acquisitions. While procurement spending provides the USAF with access to specialized services that would not normally be available within the Department of Defense, procurement fraud is an unfortunate byproduct of the acquisition process. As the primary agency responsible for investigating incidents of major procurement fraud in the USAF, the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI) has developed and implemented a number of specific training programs that focus on anti-fraud and financial crimes education for the special agents assigned to conduct fraud investigations. In an effort to foster continued program improvement, this research compared AFOSI anti-fraud training curriculum and certification requirements with the professional standard anti-fraud certification requirements established by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). The comparison identified gaps and overlaps between the AFOSI training requirements and the ACFE certification requirements. This research identified that approximately two-thirds of the knowledge competencies overlapped between the two sets of requirements. The overlaps implied a common understanding between the two organizations regarding the knowledge competencies necessary for an individual to possess in order to adequately investigate fraud. The gaps in knowledge competencies between the two organizations were attributed to differences in purview...

peer-reviewed; In 2012, an OECD1 report entitled, ‘Education at a glance’ highlighted a dramatic increase in the unemployment rate of university graduates in many OECD countries. Since entrepreneurship is frequently seen as an important factor in reducing unemployment in nations and in specific groups including university graduates, Entrepreneurship Education (EE) has become an increasingly important focus of research. Despite this potential important impact, EE programmes are suffered by a number of gaps and shortcomings, such as: ignoring their stakeholders in the process of curriculum design, using traditional teaching methods, high ambiguity about the important entrepreneurial competencies, lack of appropriate use of educational technologies, and lack of clarity about the role of context. Furthermore, e-learning is emerging as the new paradigm of modern education with a radical growth and technology is expected to positively affect EE. In this light, the current study seeks to contribute to EE literature by designing an e-learning based entrepreneurship curriculum which –against the gaps above- effectively stimulates students’ entrepreneurial competencies. Moreover, in order to review the impact of cultural factors on EE...

Even though, over the last two decades, the boundaryless career concept has stimulated a wide theoretical debate, scholars have recently claimed that research on the competencies that are necessary for managing a cross-boundary career is still incomplete. Similarly, the literature on emotional and social competencies has demonstrated how they predict work performance across industries and jobs but has neglected their influence in explaining the individual's mobility across boundaries and their impact on career success. This study aims to fill these gaps by examining the effects of emotional and social competencies on boundaryless career and on objective career success. By analyzing a sample of 142 managers over a period of 8 years, we found evidence that emotional competencies positively influence the propensity of an individual to undertake physical career mobility and that career advancements are related to the possession of social competencies and depend on the adoption of boundaryless career paths. This study also provides a contribution in terms of the evaluation of the emotional and social competencies demonstrated by an individual and of the operationalization of the measurement of boundaryless career paths, considering three facets of the physical mobility construct (organizational...

Gaps between Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and required workplace skills have been identified in industry, academia, and government. Educators acknowledge the need to reform STEM education to better prepare students for their future careers. We pursue this growing interest in the skills needed for STEM disciplines and ask whether frameworks for 21st century skills and engineering education cover all of important STEM competencies. In this study, we identify important STEM competencies and evaluate the relevance of current frameworks applied in education using the standardized job-specific database operated and maintained by the United States Department of Labor. Our analysis of the importance of 109 skills, types of knowledge and work activities, revealed 18 skills, seven categories of knowledge, and 27 work activities important for STEM workers. We investigate the perspectives of STEM and non-STEM job incumbents, comparing the importance of each skill, knowledge, and work activity for the two groups. We aimed to condense dimensions of the 52 key areas by categorizing them according to the Katz and Kahn (1978) framework and testing for inter-rater reliability. Our findings show frameworks for 21st century skills and engineering education do not encompass all important STEM competencies. Implications for STEM education programs are discussed...

La presència de conductes disruptives suposa una absència de la regulació del comportament. Aquest tema s'ha tractat des de diversos àmbits, però en aquest estudi és vol fer des de la possible relació que tenen aquestes conductes disruptives i la intel·ligència emocional. Es vol saber com l'alumne pot, mitjançant un procés intern, regular la seva conducta. Aquest procés consisteix en l'adquisició d'unes habilitats socioemocionals que el portaran a ser competent emocionalment. Les conductes disruptives estan relacionades amb les competències personals que capaciten per la relació amb les altres persones. Per tant, les conductes disruptives no sols dificulten el funcionament normal de l'aula sinó que també poden denotar mancances en el desenvolupament socioemocional dels infants. El que hem volgut aconseguir amb aquesta recerca és: • descriure les conductes disruptives més freqüents, • analitzar quins elements de les competències socioemocionals dels nens i de les nenes de primària estan relacionats amb la presència, o no, de conductes disruptives que es poden manifestar en el procés d'ensenyament-aprenentatge. • valorar si la presència o no d'aquestes conductes disruptives condicionaran la seva inclusió social dins del grup-classe. Per assolir els objectius plantejats s'han emprat diferents instruments (el Test d'EQI de Reuven Bar-On dels nens...

Facing the prospects of rapid demographic aging and decline over the coming decades, Poland needs a highly skilled workforce to help generate the productivity growth that it needs to fuel continued convergence of its living standards with those of its West European neighbors. Skilling up the workforce starts with equipping youth with the right cognitive and socio-emotional foundation skills. International research has identified three dimensions of skills that matter for good employment outcomes and economic growth: cognitive skills, such as literacy, numeracy, and creative and critical thinking or problem solving; socio-emotional skills and behavioral traits, such as conscientiousness, grit, and openness to experience; and job- or occupation-specific technical skills, such as the ability to work as an engineer. This report focuses on cognitive skills. It examines results for Poland from the program for international student assessment (PISA), which assesses the mathematics, reading, and science competencies of 15-year-olds. The overall effects of reform on Poland’s PISA scores have been positive...
