    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Department of Law, Uppsala University

    Författare :Yana Litins´ka; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; legal capacity; mental capacity; decision-making capacity; capacity assessment; medical treatment; consent; refusal; right to privacy; right to life; discrimination; right to health; disability; decision-making; CRPD; ECHR; human rights; mental disorder; English law; Russian law; Swedish law; somatic care; Medicinsk rätt; Medical Law;

    Sammanfattning : To provide a valid consent to – or refusal of – medical intervention, a patient must be legally capable to decide. This dissertation evaluates and compares when the assessment of mental abilities to refuse – or consent to – somatic medical intervention is required in England, Russia and Sweden, and what criteria must be applied to assess the ability to decide about somatic medical interventions in these legal orders.

  2. 2. Culture and Capacity Drought and Gender Differentiated Vulnerability of Rural Poor in Nicaragua, 1970-2010

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Acta Universitatis Stockholmiensis

    Författare :Lisa Segnestam; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Nicaragua; Gender; Vulnerability; Adaptive capacity; Drought; Economic History; ekonomisk historia;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation interprets gender-differentiated vulnerability to drought within a rural community located in the dry zone, la zona seca, of Nicaragua, a region that has been identified by the government and NGO sector as suffering from prolonged and, since the 1970s, more frequent droughts.  A combination of gender, capitals, and vulnerability demonstrates the value in using a multidimensional perspective to look at the socioeconomic and cultural contexts that form the capacity individuals have had to reduce their long-term vulnerability to drought in Nicaragua.

  4. 4. Reducing and absorbing variations in a manufacturing context A capacity management perspective

    Detta är en avhandling från Jönköping : Jönköping University, School of Engineering

    Författare :Lisa Hedvall; Högskolan i Jönköping.; [2019]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; capacity management; variation management; buffer management; manufacturing companies; manufacturing planning and control; kapacitetsadministration; variationsadministration; buffertadministration; tillverkande företag; material- och produktionsstyrning;

    Sammanfattning : Variations can have substantially negative effects on performance and it is therefore important to investigate how the variations can be reduced or absorbed in an appropriate way for competitiveness. Manufacturing companies are daily exposed to variations and operations managers need to take capacity management decisions with this in mind to secure the delivery capability. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The Assessment of Capacity for Myoelectric Control : Psychometric evidence and comparison with upper limb prosthetic outcome measures

    Detta är en avhandling från Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Författare :Helen Lindner; Örebro universitet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; capacity; comparison; icf; myoelectric control; psychometric evidence; upper limb prosthesis;

    Sammanfattning : Evaluation of outcomes using validated prosthetic outcome measures (OMs) is a current priority in upper limb (UL) prosthetics, and OMs with psychometric evidence toward UL prosthesis users are thus necessary. The “Assessment of Capacity for Myoelectric Control” (ACMC) is a tool that assesses the ability to control a myoelectric prosthetic hand. LÄS MER
