    Stress is a feeling you get when faced with a challenge. In small doses, stress can be good for you because it makes you more alert and gives you a burst of energy. For instance, if you start to cross the street and see a car about to run you over, that jolt you feel helps you to jump out of the way before you get hit. But feeling stressed for a long time can take a toll on your mental and physical health. Even though it may seem hard to find ways to de-stress with all the things you have to do, it’s important to find those ways. Your health depends on it.

    Epidemiology is an openly licensed text designed for medical degree–seeking clinical students without a prior background in public health. Using sports medicine and injury prevention examples and applications, it aims to provide students with the basics of epidemiology terms and concepts and is intended to guide medical school students as they prepare for the USMLE Step 1 Exam and to transition from student to clinician. It includes an introduction to general concepts and terminology of epidemiology, study designs and their relationship to clinical questions, and the use of epidemiology in clinical diagnosis and screening of disease. Concluding sections of the book present sources of errors in epidemiologic studies, including bias, confounding, and effect modification. The book is notable for its use of accessible, inclusive figures and examples, and end-of-chapter study guides that summarize the chapter visually.

    This workbook was established with nurse educators and nursing students in mind to provide knowledge, guidance, and support for integrating SDOH across the nursing education spectrum. Contents from this workbook are applicable to pre-licensure baccalaureate nursing programs, RN-to-BSN programs, and graduate education. A strategic approach for this workbook was purposefully designed to meet the structure of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) Clinical Judgment Measure Model® with a combined focus on the four spheres of care supported by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN®). Our goal with this workbook is to lead educators and students on a directed path of discovering how SDOH is an integral part of nursing practice and how nurses can implement effective interventions to positively impact the health outcomes of individuals, families, communities, and aggregates.

    El objetivo fue Evaluación del Satisfacción Laboral y Rendimiento Productivo de los Piscicultores Comunitarios. El trabajo de investigación se realizó en las unidades productoras de truchas de la comunidad de Pacococha, distrito y provincia de Castrovirreyna. Las variables de estudio fueron la satisfacción laboral y la productividad. El tipo de investigación es básica. El nivel de la investigación es Correlacional. El método es descriptivo, cualitativo y cuantitativo, describiéndose las variables involucradas y analizando su incidencia e interrelación en función a la relación causa – efecto. El diseño de investigación fue descriptivo – correlacional. En la investigación se tuvo como población a 20 piscicultores entre trabajadores y jefes, y debido a que el número de unidades que la integraron resulto accesible en su totalidad, esta fue igual a la muestra, es decir los 20 piscicultores. Para el sustento de la parte teórica se consultó diferentes fuentes bibliográficas y para el trabajo de campo se aplicó cuestionarios a la muestra identificada, formulándose dos instrumentos, que fueron validados oportunamente por juicio de expertos, a fin de efectivizar su aplicación correspondiente, los instrumentos utilizados fueron los cuestionarios de encuesta de satisfacción laboral y productividad, donde cada pregunta fue realizada de acorde a las variables considerando sus dimensiones e indicadores, con los cuales se obtuvo la información pertinente de los trabajadores de las unidades productoras. Los resultados nos muestran un coeficiente de correlación de Pearson r = 0.672, con un nivel de significancia menor a 0,05 (p-valor = 0,001). Por lo tanto, al ser el p-valor significativo concluimos que existe correlación entre las variables de estudio, se acepta la hipótesis alterna con un nivel de confianza del 95%. Como conclusión principal se ha determinado a través de la investigación que la productividad del factor humano se relaciona de forma positiva y moderada con la satisfacción laboral del personal de producción de las piscigranjas, con un grado de relación del 45.2%.
