is a 6-item questionnaire with 2 components: "need-for-knowledge" (2 questions, range: 2 to 10) "preoperative anxiety" (4 questions, range: 4 to 20).12
Es claro que la presencia de ansiedad pre-quirurgica en pacientes oncologicos tiene gran impacto tanto en el procedimiento mismo como en la evolucion de paciente y el requerimiento de los servicios de salud; sin embargo su estudio ha sido limitado y para ello la validacion de instrumentos especializados seria de gran ayuda; al respecto, la APAIS
ha demostrado ser una herramienta eficaz para el tamizaje de ansiedad en pacientes pre-quirurgicos y ofrece amplias ventajas sobre otros instrumentos similares al omitir reactivos relacionados con sintomatologia fisiologica o afectiva que pudieran ser confusos en pacientes con cancer (30).
The baseline STAI Y-1, STAI Y-2, and APAIS
scores were similar in both groups (Table 1).
After providing informed consent, the patients had to undergo the APAIS
test and MMT.
What that document did indicate was a 12% increase in graduates going from honours degrees to higher research degrees between 1992 and 2001, suggesting that the relevance of honours in relation to APAs and APAis
research project funding was a salient consideration in outcomes for graduates with honours degrees.
Material was identified by the entire Footprints team through a database search of MEDLINE, CINAHL, ERIC, AMI and APAIS
. The last mentioned yielded the most articles, given the policy based nature of much of the material in this field.

Annual National Team Championships in Las Vegas, Nev., has been held for four consecutive years and has an expanded field size of a maxi mum of 64 players and a first-place payout of $2,000.

I have drawn conclusions from data that I have been able to generate from the Australian National Bibliographic Database (ANBD) and other electronic resources (4), including RILM and the Australian Public Affairs Information Service (APAIS
), a highly selective subject index to scholarly articles in the Australian social sciences, arts and humanities.
Other databases searched included, PsycInfo, ERIC, Meditext, AMI, APAIS
using a key word search, however no new or relevant literature was identified.
The December issue mentioned that Sabretache articles are indexed by Australian Public Affairs Information Service (APAIS
) that service is now known as Australian Public Affairs Full Text (APAFT).
