The authors in Cyber-Diplomacy look at the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) as a case study of a foreign ministry that has had to make considerable adjustments in recent years - in the management of its CIT infrastructure; in the impact of communications and information technologies on its diplomatic culture, and in the use of communications technology to promote its public diplomacy. Mass communications and advances in communications technology pose fundamental challenges to the traditional conduct of diplomacy by reducing hierarchy, promoting transparency, crowding out secrecy, mobilizing global social movements, and increasing the importance of public diplomacy in international relations. But the primary source of change, the force that acts as a common denominator and accelerates other changes, is communications and information technology (CIT). Where nations were once connected through foreign ministries and traders, they are now linked to millions of individuals by fibre optics, satellite, wireless, and cable in a complex network without central control. These trends have resulted in considerable speculation about the future of diplomacy. Contributors include Andrew F. Cooper (University of Waterloo), Ronald J. Deibert (University of Toronto), Eytan Gilboa (Holon Institute of Technology and Bar-Ilan University, Israel), Steven Livingston (George Washington University), Evan H. Potter (Universty of Ottawa), Gordon Smith (University of Victoria), Peter J.

The 7th International Conference on Information Technology (CIT 2004) was held in Hyderabad, India, during December 20–23, 2004. The CIT 2004 was a forum where researchers from various areas of information technology and its applications could stimulate and exchange ideas on technological advancements. CIT, organizedby the Orissa InformationTechnologySociety (OITS), has emerged as one of the major international conferences in India and is fast becoming the premier forum for the presentation of the latest research and development in the critical area of information technology. The last six conferences attracted reputed researchers from around the world, and CIT 2004 took this trend forward. This conference focused on the latest research ?ndings on all topics in the area of information technology. Although the natural focus was on computer science issues, research results contributed from management, business and other disciplines formed an integral part. We received more than 200 papers from over 27 countries in the areas of com- tational intelligence, neural networks, mobile and adhoc networks, security, databases, softwareengineering,signal andimageprocessing,andInternetandWWW-basedc- puting. The programme committee, consisting of eminent researchers, academicians and practitioners, ?nally selected 43 full papers on the basis of reviewer grades. This proceedings contains the research papers selected for presentation at the c- ference and this is the ?rst time that the proceedingshave been published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Abstract A Case Study: The Influence of Incentives on the Use of Clinical Information Technology in Physician Organizations by Thomas Ryan Williams Doctor of Public Health University of California, Berkeley Professor James C. Robinson, Chair Background: The Institute of Medicine has called for increased adoption of information technology in U.S. healthcare to improve its quality and efficiency. In response, U.S. public and private purchasers of healthcare have developed pay for performance and other incentive programs to encourage physicians and physician organizations to implement Clinical Information Technology (CIT). Most notable, the American Recovery and Reinstatement Act (ARRA) of 2009 created a landmark program of Medicare and Medicaid payment incentives to encourage implementation of CIT by physicians in the form of electronic medical records, yet research about the influence of incentives on CIT use by physicians and physician organizations is scant. Objectives: This study examines the nation's largest private pay for performance program and the response of its participating physician organizations to incentives for CIT use. The objectives of the study include determining the characteristics of physician organizations associated with the use of CIT; their response to direct and indirect financial incentives for its use; and the perceptions attributed to different types of CIT and to financial incentives by the leadership of physician organizations. Study Design, Setting and Participants: A mixed-methods, retrospective case study of a pay for performance program from 2003 to 2007 including 206 physician organizations (POs) (2007) with individual physician association (IPA), medical group and foundation organizational structures. Forty-six percent (2003) to sixty-four percent (2007) of POs responded to an annual survey reporting use of 11 CITs and EHR use. A multi-variant regression analysis tested PO characteristics associated with CIT and EHR use and PO response to both direct and indirect incentives. A structured survey of PO leadership using a purposive sample of 35 POs (17%) in 2007 tested the perceived attributes of PO leaders regarding different types of CIT and financial incentives. Main Outcome Measures: The extent of CIT use by POs (e.g., e-prescribing) on the basis of summary indices including population management CIT (0-3), point of care CIT (0-8), all CIT (0-11), electronic health record (EHR) use and PO characteristics associated with CIT and EHR use. The response to direct and indirect financial incentives by POs for CIT use using IT survey response and self-reporting of clinical results. The perceptions of PO leaders attributed to direct and indirect financial incentives and the CIT innovations examined in the study. Results: Multi-variant regression analysis indicates the early use of population management CIT by POs is associated with PO geography, relative advantage and size. Early use of point of care CIT and EHR by POs is associated with PO geography, relative advantage and more highly structured organizational type. This analysis further indicates the early response by POs to direct financial incentives for CIT use is associated with PO size, relative advantage and social networking. The early response by POs to indirect financial incentives for CIT use is associated with PO size, relative advantage, more highly structured organizational type and lower Medicaid payer mix. The qualitative analysis of data collected from the PO Leadership Survey indicates that for most POs direct financial incentives for CIT use were not an important stimulus for new investments in CIT; however, these incentives did influence the types of CIT implemented. Conversely, this analysis indicates indirect financial incentives did stimulate earlier use of CIT by POs. The PO Leadership Survey also indicates that the perceived operational risk of CIT innovations had a negative correlation with CIT use, and point of care CIT is perceived as more operationally risky than population management CIT. Furthermore, the perceived attributes including relative clinical advantage, relative financial advantage and trialability had a strong positive correlation with population management CIT innovations. These results suggest that financial incentives influence the sequence and pace of CIT adoption by physician organizations.

Designed for graduate, advanced undergraduate, and practitioner project management courses with an information technology focus, Methods of IT Project Management is built around the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). The text provides students with all of the concepts, techniques, and methods found in the leading project management reference books, while also conveying practical knowledge that can immediately be applied in real-world settings. Unlike other books in this field, the material is organized according to the sequence of the project management life cycle from initial overview, through initiation, execution, and control, to close out. Following this life cycle, as opposed to covering the material by knowledge area, allows students to simultaneously learn project management concepts and methods at the same time as they develop skills they can use immediately during and upon completion of the course. The Project Management Professional (PMP) certification issued by the Project Management Institute (PMI) is the world's leading certification in this field. To help students prepare, the authors have dedicated an appendix to practice study questions and give helpful advice on preparing for and passing the PMP exam. At the end of each chapter, the text provides one or more mini-cases based on the theme of a running case study that extends through the entire book. The mini-cases provide additional opportunities for students to apply project management concepts and techniques, and they are ideal for stimulating class discussions and debates. In addition, these cases also present thought-provoking scenarios to challenge the more advanced student. This replaces the 1st Edition by Prentice Hall (ISBN# 978-0132367257).

This unique book recounts the experience of facing one's death solely from the dying person's point of view rather than from the perspective of caregivers, survivors, or rescuers. Such unmediated access challenges assumptions about the emotional and spiritual dimensions of dying, showing readers that -- along with suffering, loss, anger, sadness, and fear -- we can also feel courage, love, hope, reminiscence, transcendence, transformation, and even happiness as we die. A work that is at once psychological, sociological, and philosophical, this book brings together testimonies of those dying from terminal illness, old age, sudden injury or trauma, acts of war, and the consequences of natural disasters and terrorism. It also includes statements from individuals who are on death row, in death camps, or planning suicide. Each form of dying addressed highlights an important set of emotions and narratives that often eclipses stereotypical renderings of dying and reflects the numerous contexts in which this journey can occur outside of hospitals, nursing homes, and hospices. Chapters focus on common emotional themes linked to dying, expanding and challenging them through first-person accounts and analyses of relevant academic and clinical literature in psycho-oncology, palliative care, gerontology, military history, anthropology, sociology, cultural and religious studies, poetry, and fiction. The result is an all-encompassing investigation into an experience that will eventually include us all and is more surprising and profound than anyone can imagine.
