Disease relevance of Empirical Research

  • BACKGROUND: There is little empirical research on end of life care for CF patients from qualitative, psychosocial perspectives or which examines how staff members manage specific issues raised by cystic fibrosis deaths [1].

Psychiatry related information on Empirical Research


High impact information on Empirical Research

  • DATA SYNTHESIS: Diagnostic criteria for ADHD are based on extensive empirical research and, if applied appropriately, lead to the diagnosis of a syndrome with high interrater reliability, good face validity, and high predictability of course and medication responsiveness [5].
  • The conceptualization of nicotine as a CS suggests novel empirical research in which a drug acquires additional inhibitory and/or excitatory value based on other outcomes present during its effects [6].
  • However, there has been no empirical research concerning the effects of cocaine on self-control (choice of a larger, more delayed reinforcer over a smaller, less delayed reinforcer) [7].
  • Whilst studies from several countries illustrate the universality of psychosocial difficulties connected with an epilepsy diagnosis, there is a marked lack of empirical research findings on the subject of how different national populations compare on the same measuring instruments [8].
  • The Harvard Family Research Project (HRFP) has developed a conceptual model, based on scholarly theory, empirical research, and knowledge gained from providers, that describes the characteristics that predict participation in OST programs as well as the potential benefits of that participation [9].

Associations of Empirical Research with chemical compounds

  • Findings from empirical research serve as the foundation for neuropsychological assessment of individuals suspected of exposure to formaldehyde [10].
  • RESULTS: Empirical research evidence concerning the magnitude of the problem was widely reported and largely uncontested in the media and in the Summit debates [11].
  • Hitherto, empirical research has been mainly concerned with the aspect of the psychophysiological system, which is activated in situations that are perceived by the individual as threatening, harmful, or demanding and in which the fight-flight and stress responses described by Cannon (1929) and Selye (1976) play an important role [12].

Gene context of Empirical Research

  • We describe the development of a new instrument, the Medical Interaction Process System (MIPS) for use in teaching communication skills and empirical research in medical encounters, particularly, between doctors and patients with cancer [13].
  • Psychoanalytic attitudes towards homosexuality: an empirical research [14].
  • Personal dimensions of identity and empirical research in APA journals [15].
  • This study extends previous theoretical and empirical research on Blau and Boal's (1987) model of the interactive effect of job involvement and organizational commitment on employee withdrawal [16].
  • In this paper Lorraine Ellis and Sue Peckover discuss the implications of the current NHS Research Governance Framework for the supervision of Masters level students undertaking empirical research as part of their programme of study [17].
