    De la fenomenología de la voluntad al primado de la persona en la acción. A. Pfänder y L. Polo

    Get PDF
    Tanto Pfänder como Polo han hecho unos estudios dignos de mención en lo que a la ética se refiere. Queremos rescatar en este breve trabajo lo mejor de estos pensadores que desde perspectivas y métodos muy dispares abordan temas y resuelven problemas de modos muy distintos llevándonos, cada uno a su manera, al puerto seguro del ser personal. Dichos pensadores nos muestran que, tanto con el método de la fenomenología realista como con el método poliano del abandono de la presencia, se puede entrever e incluso fundamentar el primado del ser personal en la acción humana.Pfänder and Polo both have carried out studies that are worth mentioning with regard to ethics. In this brief work we would like to rescue what is best in these two thinkers who, from rather disparate perspectives and methods, confront topics and resolve problems in rather distinct ways to carry us to the safe port of personal being, each in his own manner. These two thinkers show us that it is possible to entertain and even support the primacy of personal being in human action, using the method of realistic phenomenology or the polianic abandonment of presence

    Towards Transparent Decision-Making Processes Within Museums: Case Study of Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC)

    No full text
    Understanding that good decision-making is paramount for the success of an organization and recognizing that strategic decision-making inside museums is a topic that has been over-passed by researchers, this paper intends to contribute to the relevance of the subject through the implementation of an innovative tool. Decision-making in museums is normally focused on the intuition, subjectivity, and experience of the curator, who brings all his knowledge to the exhibition programming. However, museums’ management and environment are constantly changing, thus the application of this tool would aim to make decisions in a more democratic, transparent, inclusive, and accurate manner. Besides, it will be easier to understand how distinct subjects can work together, demonstrating successful results to improve the decision-making process when programming and measuring temporary exhibition seasons in museums. This paper describes the design and implementation of the Multi-Attribute Utility Theory (MAUT) for the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC). It also analyzes and evaluates the decision-making process when scheduling exhibitions for a season

    Clinical management of plant food allergy in patients sensitized to lipid transfer proteins is heterogeneous: identifying the gaps

    Background and objective: Patients sensitized to lipid transfer protein (LTP) present a wide clinical variability. The lack of practical diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines complicate their management. The aim of the study was to describe the clinical approach of Spanish allergists to this pathology using a survey designed by PICO method and subsequent Delphi approach validation. Methods: Designed survey was answered by 224 allergists (75% women; 57.1% with >20 years of professional experience). Homogeneity regarding clinical practice on the main points of LTP allergy diagnosis was observed, except for patients with suspected NSAID hypersensitivity (44.6% frequently include LTP skin testing). Oral food challenges were not frequently performed (63.6% occasionally to never), and they were generally (75.5%) used to confirm tolerance. It was common to recommend fruit skins avoidance (77.2%) and maintaining consumption of foods to which patients are sensitised but tolerant (99.1%). Results: There was heterogeneity on other dietary indications, modifications due to co-factors, or traces avoidance. Peach sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) was considered very/quite effective by 55.9% of allergists. The majority (79.5%) consider SLIT indicated in <25% of LTP allergic patients, based on severity (95.2%), frequency of reactions (99.4%), allergy to multiple food families (97.4%), and the quality of life/nutrition impairment (91.5%). There was different practice on SLIT prescription based on co-factor involvement. Conclusion: These data suggest that there is a need to increase evidence to reduce the clinical practice heterogeneity in the management of LTP allergy

    Impact of applying the global lung initiative criteria for airway obstruction in GOLD defined COPD cohorts: the BODE and CHAIN experience

    Get PDF
    Introduction: The Global Lung Function Initiative (GLI) has proposed new criteria for airflow limitation (AL) and recommends using these to interpret spirometry. The objective of this study was to explore the impact of the application of the AL GLI criteria in two well characterized GOLD-defined COPD cohorts. Methods: COPD patients from the BODE (n=360) and the COPD History Assessment In SpaiN (CHAIN) cohorts (n=722) were enrolled and followed. Age, gender, pack-years history, BMI, dyspnea, lung function measurements, exercise capacity, BODE index, history of exacerbations and survival were recorded. CT-detected comorbidities were registered in the BODE cohort. The proportion of subjects without AL by GLI criteria was determined in each cohort. The clinical, CT-detected comorbidity, and overall survival of these patients were evaluated. Results: In total, 18% of the BODE and 15% of the CHAIN cohort did not meet GLI AL criteria. In the BODE and CHAIN cohorts respectively, these patients had a high clinical burden (BODE≥3: 9% and 20%; mMRC≥2: 16% and 45%; exacerbations in the previous year: 31% and 9%; 6MWD<350m: 15% and 19%, respectively), and a similar prevalence of CT-diagnosed comorbidities compared with those with GLI AL. They also had a higher rate of long-term mortality - 33% and 22% respectively. Conclusions: An important proportion of patients from 2 GOLD-defined COPD cohorts did not meet GLI AL criteria at enrolment, although they had a significant burden of disease. Caution must be taken when applying the GLI AL criteria in clinical practice

    Grupos de trabajo internacionales para facilitar una perspectiva reflexiva sobre el papel de la empresa para un mundo más sostenible. Una experiencia “COIL” para integrar el aprendizaje de los ODS en la formación de empresa

A través de un proyecto de aprendizaje colaborativo internacional (COIL), estudiantes de la Universidad de Navarra trabajaron en equipos mixtos con sus pares de las universidades de Guelph (Ontario, Canadá), IPMI (Jakarta, Indonesia) y Dominican University (River Forest, EEUU)

    Serum Amyloid A as a potential biomarker for disease activity in chronic spontaneous urticaria

    Get PDF
    Background: Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) is an inflammatory skin disease with a complex physiopathology. Serum amyloid A (SAA), an acute-phase reactant, has been proposed as a potential biomarker in urticaria but has yet to be studied in a population with CSU or correlated with disease activity as indicated by the Urticaria Activity Score summed over 7 days (UAS7). Objective: We sought to determine SAA-1 levels in patients with CSU and correlate them with its activity and control, as well as with clinical features of CSU and other potential blood biomarkers. Methods: We conducted a retrospective multicenter study of 67 patients with CSU, from whom we obtained demographic and clinical data, UAS7 as an indicator of CSU activity, and blood and serum markers. Results: SAA-1 levels positively correlated with UAS7 (rs = 0.47, P 6) CSU than in those with controlled (UAS ≤ 6) CSU (P < .001) and were also higher in patients with concomitant angioedema (P = .003) or delayed pressure urticaria (P = .003). Conclusion: We propose SAA-1 as a potential biomarker for activity in CSU. Further studies are required to evaluate its potential role as a biomarker for other CSU outcomes, such as response to treatment

    Old wine in new bottles. Narrative complexity in the dawn of Netflix Originals (2013-2017)

    Get PDF
    This article explores how the first five years of Netflix Originals dramatic storytelling fit the “Complex TV” label that Mittell defined, with its innovative season-drop delivery strategy. We focus on one narratological device: the delimited flashback, the predominant type of analepsis in the 33 pilot episodes that made up our sample. Although the delimited flashbacks analyzed are semantically diverse, the discussion combines quantitative data with a qualitative analysis focusing on three key elements: the objects and places that trigger the characters’ memories, the contradictory or parallel relationship between timeframes, and the violation of boundaries between narrative layers

    Escribir una historia

    Get PDF
    El proyecto «Escribir una historia» trata de integrar las competencias específicas de la escritura creativa en un marco universitario a partir de la redacción de un proyecto de novela. Así, en la primera fase de la asignatura se presta especial atención a la lectura analítica de novelas contemporáneas como un medio de trasladar recursos narrativos a la propia creación. Después cada estudiante ha de realizar un proyecto personal de novela que incluye las técnicas analizadas en la primera fase, así como los elementos teóricos que se han explicado. Los principales retos docentes pasan por la evaluación de los resultados de aprendizaje, que se realizan desde una pluralidad de voces críticas, ya que los proyectos son evaluados por una comisión integrada por profesores y escritores profesionales
