Abstract

As discussed in this chapter, the commercialization and adoption bottlenecks for these moderately complex diagnostics cannot be overcome by&#xD;technological innovation alone, particularly in the highly regulated and&#xD;payer-limited healthcare and public health markets. Diagnostics, unlike&#xD;other clinical products, is not an intervention but a decision-aid that guides&#xD;the use (or nonuse) of an intervention. It is important that the value proposition&#xD;for any technology-centric innovation in diagnostics include a strong&#xD;link to a gained efficiency in making a specific decision. Any assay developed&#xD;without context to the system, users, decision points, and downstream&#xD;interventions resembles one that is more targeted to the research community,&#xD;rather than clinical care or public health.

Abstract

The author addresses two groundbreaking questions: What significance does the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities have for special educational thinking and action? And how important is disability in the human rights debate? By describing the specific risk situations of people with disabilities, the author creates the basis for a reflection on the claims of justification and validity on the part of philosophy and points of departure for the special educational discussion.

Abstract

In this Special Issue of Brain Sciences, we will be discussing “Mental Illness in Children” from a range of perspectives, exploring the prevalence and recognition of mental disorders in children, the types of disorders and approaches to meeting their needs, and the complexity and severity of mental health problems in children. We look to what models of care best respond to children’s needs, the identification and management of risk, and the expertise needed to appropriately and effectively intervene when children need mental health care. We will welcome articles describing the range of issues that impact on mental disorder in children; models of intervention implemented and evaluated; new data on prevalence and nature of disorder; and critical reviews on mental health problems and vulnerability. We look forward to your valuable contribution to this Special Issue for this journal.

Abstract

How do individualised support arrangements for children with special educational needs come about in integrative/inclusive teaching? The author describes how different understanding of cooperation between occupational groups goes hand in hand with different concepts of individualisation and is anchored in different institutional experiences: a differentiated analysis for the reconstruction of action orientations in the reform process at the school entry level.

Abstract

In OECD countries the average expenditure on primary and secondary education institutions is about 3.5% of GDP. The investment in education has large implications for economic development and the proper functioning of democratic institutions, as well as overall well-being. However, clear consensus and guidance on which system leads to the best educational outcomes is lacking. This volume describes the resource allocation for compulsory and special needs education for a selection of well-performing countries and regions on PISA tests. By studying the funding systems in well-performing countries and regions the authors identify the elements in the respective funding systems that are associated with best outcomes and have the ideal characteristics to pursue particular goals of education systems such as equity and efficiency. The funding methods of primary and secondary education as well as special needs education are covered.&#xD;

Abstract

An ageing population is a major challenge for every country in the world arising from the declining fertility rate and increasing life expectancy. A longevity risk (the adverse outcome of people living longer than expected) exacerbated by declining equity returns coupled with the record low interest rate environments has significant implications for societies and manifests as a systematic risk for providers of retirement income products. The aim of this special issue is to highlight advances inquantitative modelling of risks related to ageing population problems. It is aimed at practitioners and regulators in insurance, banking and pension industries; academic researchers; and advanced graduate students in the area.

Abstract

The interest in the topic of spirituality as a more or less independent dimension of quality of life is continuously growing, and research questions are beginning to change as the field of religiosity changes, becoming more diverse and pluralistic. Addressing new topics in health research also relies on standardized questionnaires. The number of instruments intended to measure specific aspects of spirituality is growing, and it is particularly difficult to evaluate the new instruments. This Special Issue will focus on some of the established instruments (updating them to different languages and cultures), but will also describe the features and intentions of newly-developed instruments, which may potentially be used in larger studies to develop knowledge relevant to spiritual care and practice. This Special Issue will serve as a resource on the instruments used to study the wide range of organized religiosity, the individual experience of the divine, and an open approach in the search for meaning and purpose in life.
