Answer:

Social workers in long-term care settings play a vital role for Alzheimer's patients and their families. Social workers are able to improve the quality of care through the use of interdisciplinary care plans and case management. Not only will social workers advocate for a patient's best interest, but they can also insist in supporting that individual's loved ones. Families and caregivers can often have an extremely hard time coping with an Alzheimer's diagnosis. Social workers can provide adequate resources for them including support groups, counseling, respite services, and financial assistance.

Answer:

Sampling theory can be defined as a research technique during which a given population is compared to a randomly selected population portion. The selected portion is expected to be a representation of the whole population. Sampling theory is most often utilized to determine an accurate reflection of a population being studied at any given time. For example, if a nursing association wants to determine the effects that a new therapeutic intervention has on patients diagnosed with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), they may use a sample of individuals. The nurses may randomly select a pool of thirty individuals. Their study and observations of these thirty individuals will allow them to make conclusions about a larger population affected by HIV. Sampling allows researchers to keep their experiment costs low, spend less time surveying their samples, keep high data accuracy, create intensive data, develop better rapport, and improve study usefulness overall. Another aspect of usefulness is a study’s generalizability. Generalizability considers how effective a sample’s data is at describing a broader population. When considering our example above, the nursing researchers may have found that their therapeutic technique effectively improves the side effects of HIV patients experience. If their findings can broadly apply to all HIV patients, it would be labeled as having strong generalizability.

Question:

Why do we dream?

Answer:

When you fall asleep at night, your body enters a natural cycle consisting of different sleep phases. One phase, rapid eye movement or REM sleep, causes your body to slow down its physiological processes and speed up the movement of the eyes beneath the eyelids. During REM, our brains are capable of dreaming. Research shows that during REM cycles our brains are almost as active as when we are awake. This brain activity is what makes dreams possible.
