    Reflection on Psychological Services in Oncology and Palliative Care in Two Montreal University Hospital Centers

    Réflexion sur l’offre de services psychologiques en oncologie et soins palliatifs dans deux centres hospitaliers universitaires montréalais

    C. Defer, M.-S. Bernatchez

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.16, No.1, pp. 212-217, 2022, DOI:10.3166/pson-2022-0184

    Abstract In the face of cancer and at the end of life, emotional distress is common and is increasingly recognized, resulting in a significant number of requests for consultation with our specialized psychological services. The authors present a reflection on the various factors that guide their interventions with oncology and palliative care patients in a hospital setting. The challenge is to offer the right care at the right time to all patients and their loved ones who need it. The treatment plan will be adjusted according to the severity and the nature of the distress, the need to intervene within a… More >

    Observational Study of Family Behaviors during the Terminal Palliative Phase

    Étude observationnelle des comportements familiaux durant la phase palliative terminale

    A. Van Lander, A. Bioy, V. Guastella

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.16, No.2, pp. 234-242, 2022, DOI:10.3166/pson-2022-0196

    Abstract Supporting those around a patient suffering from a serious, progressive, or terminal illness is a legal obligation (Law 99 Art. L.1er B) and requires professionals informed about specific mechanisms. Main objective: discover the family psycho-adaptive mechanisms during the terminal phase. Methods: The method is qualitative from a participant observation in a palliative care inpatient service between January 2016 and January 2020. Results: observation of 649 families reveal specific distresses, a relationship that is both caring and fusional, and a negative pact. family communication about dying is deleterious. Conclusion: it’s essential to adapt palliative care to the functioning of family, the… More >

    Trust in the Device: an Unreasonable Obstinacy

    La confiance dans le dispositif : une obstination déraisonnable

    J. Sainton, M. Derzelle

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.16, No.2, pp. 229-233, 2022, DOI:10.3166/pson-2022-0195

    Abstract The recent French legislative evolution concerning the end of life, which tends to substitute the procedure for the relationship, raises questions. Today, every question seems to have to be obstinately transformed into a problem to be solved, and therefore to be solved technically. We are evolving in a context marked by the primacy of technique and law over meaning and human relationships. This paradigm, when confronted with our limitations, accentuates the double anguish of the end of life: fear of suffering and fear of dying. It also favors a nominalist understanding of freedom: autonomy is no longer understood as an… More >

    Analyser la structure de dispositifs de mise à disposition de données géographiques

    Application aux enjeux de suivi et de gestion du trait de côte en France

    Johan Desbonnet1 , Françoise Gourmelon1, Christophe Claramunt2

    Revue Internationale de Géomatique, Vol.29, No.1, pp. 57-80, 2019, DOI:10.3166/rig.2019.00079

    Abstract In the context of shoreline management and monitoring issues, inferring information and knowledge from the Web are considered as a crucial issue. However, Spatial Data Infrastructures promoters’ strategies and content are still unknown. This article presents a methodological approach to study the technical possibilities of access to the digital geographic information on online platforms often used for shoreline management and monitoring in France. Geographical data access on such platforms is granted by the presence of hyperlinks and Geospatial Web services. The analysis of this structural components (hyperlinks and Web services) shows a disparate situation for the access to geographical information.… More >

    Contribution of real-time traffic density indicators integrated into GIS

    Cyclists’ exposure to air pollution and noise in Mexico City

    Philippe Apparicio1 , Jérémy Gelb1, Paula Negron-Poblete2, Mathieu Carrier1, Stéphanie Potvin1 , Élaine Lesage-Mann1

    Revue Internationale de Géomatique, Vol.30, No.2, pp. 155-179, 2020, DOI:10.3166/rig.2021.00110

    Abstract Air pollution and road traffic noise are two important environmental nuisances that could be harmful to the health and well-being of urban populations. In Mexico City, as in many North American cities, there has been an upsurge in bicycle ridership. However, Mexico City is also well known for having high levels of noise and air pollution. The purpose of this study is threefold: 1) evaluate cyclists’ exposure to air pollution (nitrogen dioxide) and road traffic noise; 2) identify local factors that increase or reduce cyclists’ exposure, in paying particular attention to the type of road and bicycle path or lane… More >

    Assessment of Aged Offshore Jacket Type Platforms Considering Environmental Loads and Degradation Parameters

    Yazeed Al-Radhi1,*, Farzad Hejazi2, Azmi Abdulkarim3, Ali Feroozi4

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.17, No.2, pp. 89-113, 2023, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2023.011439

    Abstract Offshore steel structures are a common investment in oil and gas industries operating in shallow to medium depth seas. These structures have become increasingly popular since the mid-19th century, with a typical design life of 30-50 years. Despite their popularity, the structural integrity of existing offshore structures remains a controversial topic. Environmental loads and material degradation have been identified as significant factors that can compromise the structural integrity of offshore structures. To address this issue, this study aims to investigate the reserved strength capacity of a selected offshore structure located in the Malaysian Seas. The study will explore the effect… More >

    FSA-Net: A Cost-efficient Face Swapping Attention Network with Occlusion-Aware Normalization

    Zhipeng Bin1, Huihuang Zhao1,2,*, Xiaoman Liang1,2, Wenli Chen1

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.37, No.1, pp. 971-983, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.037270

    Abstract The main challenges in face swapping are the preservation and adaptive superimposition of attributes of two images. In this study, the Face Swapping Attention Network (FSA-Net) is proposed to generate photorealistic face swapping. The existing face-swapping methods ignore the blending attributes or mismatch the facial keypoint (cheek, mouth, eye, nose, etc.), which causes artifacts and makes the generated face silhouette non-realistic. To address this problem, a novel reinforced multi-aware attention module, referred to as RMAA, is proposed for handling facial fusion and expression occlusion flaws. The framework includes two stages. In the first stage, a novel attribute encoder is proposed… More >

    Two-Sided Matching Decision Making with Multi-Attribute Probabilistic Hesitant Fuzzy Sets

    Peichen Zhao1, Qi Yue2,*, Zhibin Deng3

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.37, No.1, pp. 849-873, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.037090

    Abstract In previous research on two-sided matching (TSM) decision, agents’ preferences were often given in the form of exact values of ordinal numbers and linguistic phrase term sets. Nowdays, the matching agent cannot perform the exact evaluation in the TSM situations due to the great fuzziness of human thought and the complexity of reality. Probability hesitant fuzzy sets, however, have grown in popularity due to their advantages in communicating complex information. Therefore, this paper develops a TSM decision-making approach with multi-attribute probability hesitant fuzzy sets and unknown attribute weight information. The agent attribute weight vector should be obtained by using the… More >

    Research and Implementation of Credit Investigation Sharing Platform Based on Double Blockchain

    Yanyan Han1,2, Wanqi Wei2,*, Kaili Dou3, Peng Li2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.75, No.3, pp. 5193-5211, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.037756

    Abstract As the development of the modern economy is increasingly inseparable from credit support, the traditional credit investigation mode has yet to meet this demand. Because of the difficulties in conventional credit data sharing among credit investigation agencies, poor data portability, and centralized supervision, this paper proposes a data-sharing scheme for credit investigation agencies based on a double blockchain. Given the problems such as difficult data sharing, difficult recovery of damaged data, and accessible data leakage between institutions and users with non-traditional credit investigation data other than credit, this paper proposes a data-sharing scheme for credit investigation subjects based on the… More >
