Alarming differences exist in cancer outcomes for people most impacted by persistent and widening health and social inequities. People who are socially disadvantaged often have higher cancer-related mortality and are diagnosed with advanced cancers more often than other people. Such outcomes are linked to the compounding effects of stigma, discrimination, and other barriers, which create persistent inequities in access to care at all points in the cancer trajectory, preventing timely diagnosis and treatment, and further widening the health equity gap. In this commentary, we discuss how growing evidence suggests that people who are considered marginalized are not well-served by the cancer care sector and how the design and structure of services can often impose profound barriers to populations considered socially disadvantaged. We highlight equity-oriented healthcare as one strategy that can begin to address inequities in health outcomes and access to care by taking action to transform organizational cultures and approaches to the design and delivery of cancer services.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4 Quality Education has increased awareness in pre-university environmental education efforts. Environmental education is important to not only creating awareness of world environmental issues, but taking action towards fostering positive change. Environmental education programs such as SeaTrust Institute's AWARE (Action Within a Resilient Environment) assist teens in learning about issues that directly impact their communities and their world. AWARE combines environmental education with hands-on experiential learning projects that help promote environmental awareness in their communities. Through education and experience with active scholars and professional practitioners, students gain an increased understanding of environmental challenges and ways to make a positive impact – both domestically and globally. This is especially critical to developing countries which lack the educational programs and resources to address the impact environmental changes have on their nations and communities.

The authors share anecdotes highlighting coaches' and coachees' experiences in this phase in order to show what it looks like in a virtual coaching setting. The chapter concludes with practical recommendations including questions to ask, strategies to employ, and activities that can best facilitate the work of a coach and coachee as they prepare to take action.

AbstractMany climate change-related risks, such as more frequent and severe natural disasters, can be characterised as low-probability/high-consequence (LP/HC) events. Perceptions of LP/HC risks are often associated with biases which hamper taking action to limit these risks, such as underestimation of risk, myopia, and the adoption of simplified decision heuristics. This chapter discusses these biases and outlines key elements of policies to overcome them in order to enhance climate action.

Abstract Purpose: The purpose of this study is to understand the cognition and experience of oncology nurses in China when responding to a patient’s request to hasten death, to describe the obstacles that prevent their response, and to provide suggestions for dealing with the patient’s request. Methods: Researchers conducted a qualitative study that consisted of open-ended, semi-structured interviews with 18 registered nurses who had more than five years of working experience in the oncology department at a large-scale urban hospital. We analyzed these data for content and themes.Results: How to deal with patients’ requests to hasten death is a problem often encountered and handled by nurses in the Department of Oncology.Nurses have a certain understanding of the patients’ requests to hasten death. This study abstracts four themes: 1) the nurses’ cognition of the “Accelerate the process of death” ; 2) the methods they use to deal with the patients’ requests to hasten death; 3) the obstacles that prevent nurses from fulfilling the patients’ requests to hasten death; and 4) their suggestions for improvement.Conclusion: Nurses have a deep understanding of the real thoughts of patients who make a death request, and they hope to provide the corresponding psychological support and physical care. However, the lack of relevant knowledge, policy support, and cooperation of patients’ families are obstacles that prevent them from taking action. Therefore, increasing relevant training for nurses, encouraging multi-department cooperation, and developing standardized nursing processes may lay a foundation for oncology nurses to better undertake and guide such conversations.

The ease of accessing the internet by people can also cause the occurrence of cyber crime. Cyber crime can be done by all internet users, without exception, to earn a profit. Security monitoring system server through the app messenger Telegram can help administrators in the work because always be on standby in front of the server computer. Notice of Snort as IDS via Telegram also quicked and can be accepted anywhere. In taking action when the server something happened not too late. Target cyber crime also can attack anyone without exception. A system should be a strength, with the protection of a secure network that will be difficult to hack by hackers. The server is the main target in the conduct of cyber crime. The use of the server must maintain to secure all the data is not misused by persons who are not responsible.
