The project is believed to be one of the first of its kind to be carried out with a South Asian owned company and the unique cultural influences on project development and management. This paper highlights both the theoretical and practical processes of knowledge transfer and will illustrate the importance of business solutions that can be tailored to the culture within an individual company.&#13;
Mrs Unis Spicy Foods is a company that manufactures samosas, pakoras, nan and curries which are distributed throughout Scotland. The products sell mainly to corner shops, cash and carries, delicatessens, hospitals and universities. In addition, food for local exhibitions and conferences and Indian party food for the general public are also supplied. The potential market size for Asian foods is difficult to estimate, due to the differing modes of supply. The restaurant trade is currently estimated to be worth over £2 billion per annum in the UK, but this market is currently lacking in growth opportunities. The pre-packaged convenience food sector, however, is seeing strong levels of growth and the increased demand for convenience foods across all sectors is predicted to continue. The increase in the amount of shelf-space now given to convenience foods of ethnic origin in food retailers is clearly visible and the continuing market for the development of new products for this market is acknowledged. The primary aim of the project was to facilitate long-term knowledge transfer of business expertise from the University to the company and to encourage academics to increase their practical business experience. The development of new fusion products that blended South Asian and Scottish cuisine was a part of this project, designed to facilitate company and sales development and the targeting of new market sectors [Seaman et al, 2005].&#13;
Much that is already apparent within the literature regarding business culture and the development of appropriate business support systems is born out by the experiences of this team, with the key role played by cultural aspects emphasised by the South Asian culture apparent within the company. In addition, whilst developing and managing projects and production in an environment where English is not the first language is well documented, a business where a variety of languages are spoken, far fewer are written and some employees cannot communicate directly with the business owner is a challenging proposition. In practice, the programme heralded important changes in the structure and development of the company providing a model for the future and raising important questions about change-management and decision making. The importance of this project is threefold: to businesses it illustrates the advantages of engaging in such projects; to academics it illustrates both the importance of the cultural dimension and the potential for success and for those engaged in the development of business support systems it emphasises the importance of the individually tailored response for diverse companies.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/19/1/spicy.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>The Seventh International Conference on Stimulating Manufacturing Excellence in Small and Medium Enterprises</dc:source><dc:subject>HD</dc:subject><dc:title>Business support systems and cultural diversity : a knowledge transfer partnership with a manufacturer of South Asian spicy foods</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Seaman, Claire</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Bent, Richard</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Campbell, Gordon</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Miskin, David</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Unis, A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Conference Paper/Proceeding/Abstract</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

outside their country of birth, compared to 100 million, or 1.8% of the total population, in 1995.&#13;
As the global labour market strengthens, it is increasingly highly skilled professionals who are&#13;
migrating. Medical practitioners and nurses represent a small proportion of highly skilled workers&#13;
who migrate, but the loss of health human resources for developing countries can mean that the&#13;
capacity of the health system to deliver health care equitably is compromised. However, data to&#13;
support claims on both the extent and the impact of migration in developing countries is patchy&#13;
and often anecdotal, based on limited databases with highly inconsistent categories of education&#13;
and skills.&#13;
The aim of this paper is to examine some key issues related to the international migration of health&#13;
workers in order to better understand its impact and to find entry points to developing policy&#13;
options with which migration can be managed.&#13;
The paper is divided into six sections. In the first, the different types of migration are reviewed.&#13;
Some global trends are depicted in the second section. Scarcity of data on health worker migration&#13;
is one major challenge and this is addressed in section three, which reviews and discusses different&#13;
data sources. The consequences of health worker migration and the financial flows associated with&#13;
it are presented in section four and five, respectively. To illustrate the main issues addressed in the&#13;
previous sections, a case study based mainly on the United Kingdom is presented in section six.&#13;
This section includes a discussion on policies and ends by addressing the policy options from a&#13;
broader perspective.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/20/1/developing.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>BioMed Central</dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://www.human-resources-health.com/content/1/1/8/abstract</dc:relation><dc:source>1478-4491</dc:source><dc:subject>RA</dc:subject><dc:title>Developing evidence-based ethical policies on the migration of health workers : conceptual and practical challenges</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Buchan, James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Stilwell, Barbara</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Diallo, Khassoum</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Zurn, Pascal</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Dal Poz, Mario R</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Adams, Orvill</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-10-28</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/1478-4491-1-8</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

performance has, until recently, been generally overlooked. In recent years it has been increasingly&#13;
recognised that getting HR policy and management "right" has to be at the core of any sustainable&#13;
solution to health system performance. In comparison to the evidence base on health care reformrelated&#13;
issues of health system finance and appropriate purchaser/provider incentive structures,&#13;
there is very limited information on the HRM dimension or its impact.&#13;
Despite the limited, but growing, evidence base on the impact of HRM on organisational&#13;
performance in other sectors, there have been relatively few attempts to assess the implications of&#13;
this evidence for the health sector. This paper examines this broader evidence base on HRM in&#13;
other sectors and examines some of the underlying issues related to "good" HRM in the health&#13;
sector.&#13;
The paper considers how human resource management (HRM) has been defined and evaluated in&#13;
other sectors. Essentially there are two sub-themes: how have HRM interventions been defined?&#13;
and how have the effects of these interventions been measured in order to identify which&#13;
interventions are most effective? In other words, what is "good" HRM?&#13;
The paper argues that it is not only the organisational context that differentiates the health sector&#13;
from many other sectors, in terms of HRM. Many of the measures of organisational performance&#13;
are also unique. "Performance" in the health sector can be fully assessed only by means of indicators&#13;
that are sector-specific. These can focus on measures of clinical activity or workload (e.g. staff per&#13;
occupied bed, or patient acuity measures), on measures of output (e.g. number of patients treated)&#13;
or, less frequently, on measures of outcome (e.g. mortality rates or rate of post-surgery&#13;
complications).&#13;
The paper also stresses the need for a "fit" between the HRM approach and the organisational&#13;
characteristics, context and priorities, and for recognition that so-called "bundles" of linked and&#13;
coordinated HRM interventions will be more likely to achieve sustained improvements in&#13;
organisational performance than single or uncoordinated interventions.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/21/1/what.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>BioMed Central</dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://www.human-resources-health.com/content/2/1/6/abstract</dc:relation><dc:source>1478-4491</dc:source><dc:subject>RA</dc:subject><dc:title>What difference does ("good") HRM make?</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Buchan, James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2004-06-07</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/1478-4491-2-6</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

&#13;
1. In early 2002, the Scottish Executive embarked on a national review of Speech and Language Therapy, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy for children and Speech and Language Therapy for adults with learning disabilities.&#13;
&#13;
2. The review was called in response to a number of concerns:&#13;
&#13;
There has been a significant increase in funding for Speech and Language Therapy for children with records of needs in recent years yet children still find it difficult to access services.&#13;
&#13;
The Riddell Advisory Committee Report 1 into the Education of Children with Severe and Low Incidence Disabilities (SLID) highlighted the problem of shortages of therapists leading to unacceptable waiting times for children with SLID. It raised questions about the current management and organisation of therapists and reported some dissatisfaction with funding mechanisms.&#13;
&#13;
The report of the Learning Disabilities Review, The same as you?2 stated that adults with learning disabilities found it difficult to access Speech and Language Therapy. It recommended that the review of children's therapy recommended by the Riddell Committee 1 should be extended to cover Speech and Language Therapy for adults with learning difficulties.&#13;
&#13;
3. The review, therefore, intended to address issues such as continued shortages of therapists, the management of therapy provision and current funding mechanisms particularly for children's therapy.&#13;
&#13;
4. The review was guided by a steering group made up of representatives from the Scottish Executive Education Department and the Scottish Executive Health Department as well as advisors from a number of stakeholder groups (see Appendix A for membership).&#13;
&#13;
5. Queen Margaret University College provided consultancy to the review team. The University College undertook an investigation of Speech and Language Therapy, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy for children and Speech and Language Therapy for adults with learning disabilities as part of the review. The investigation is described in Chapter 4. In addition, a focus group was organised by the Scottish Consortium of Learning Disability to seek the views of adults with learning disabilities who use Speech and Language Therapy. The views of parents were fed into the review by the parent representative on the steering group.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/27/1/ReviewofSpeech.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Scottish Executive Publications</dc:publisher><dc:subject>RM695</dc:subject><dc:subject>RC</dc:subject><dc:title>A Scottish Executive review of speech and language therapy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy for children and speech and language therapy for adults with learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorder</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Consultancy team from Queen Margaret University College, </rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Consultancy team from Queen Margaret University College</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Monograph</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Electropalatographic (EPG) data were recorded from 15 English speaking adults for word initial /t/, /d/ and /n/ in a high and a low vowel context. EPG frames were classified according to three criteria: (1) anterior constriction; (2) bilateral constriction; and (3) zero posterior central contact. Total amount of contact and variability were also measured. The results showed that almost all (99%) stops met Criteria 1 and 3, with fewer articulations (88% of /t/; 83% of /d/ and 55% of /n/) meeting Criterion 2. Although all stops had similar spatial patterns, /t/ and /d/ had more contact and were more likely to have bilateral constriction than /n/. There were no differences in variability between /t/, /d/ and /n/, however. The clinical implications of the results for the management of individuals with speech disorders are discussed. </dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Taylor &amp; Francis</dc:publisher><dc:source>1441-7049</dc:source><dc:subject>RC480.5</dc:subject><dc:subject>RC</dc:subject><dc:title>Normal adult speakers' tongue palate contact patterns for alveolar oral and nasal stops</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Gibbon, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Yuen, Ivan</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Lee, Alice</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Adams, Lynne</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/14417040600954824</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Yet it lacks the visual signifiers of either its Hellenistic splendour or its early 20th century allure, and exists in contemporary guide books as a place without touristic sights where the well read traveller is exhorted to ‘use the mind’s eye&amp;apos; to bring it alive. Its associations, however, are those of high rather than popular culture, and its literary construction is as a bastion of Western colonialism and nostalgia, one which hegemonically defines an oriental Other as a liminal place of transgressive erotic possibility and schadenfreude. This Alexandrian myth exists uneasily within postcolonial Egypt, and equally uneasily with contemporary touristic practices that are both democratised and posited as much on material as on cultural consumption. This paper draws on MacCannell&amp;apos;s semiotic of the tourist attraction to suggest that whatever the significance of past literary productions of high culture to contemporary tourists, they continue to be cited generically to validate and authenticate touristic responses to, and encounters with, a city lacking familiar and regularly reproduced sights.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Multilingual Matters</dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://www.multilingual-matters.com/</dc:relation><dc:source>1476-6825</dc:source><dc:subject>G1</dc:subject><dc:title>Imagining Alexandria : sightseeing in a city of the mind </dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Dunn, David</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2006</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.2167/jtcc067.0 </rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

At the same time their engagement with tourism as a popular cultural activity was informed by a public service broadcasting ideology which privileged information and education over entertainment. In a world of deregulated broadcasting, and with a proliferation of available channels, the genre is developing new narrative forms in order to reflect the diversity of popular culture. It is also informed by television’s current privileging of lifestyle, of personalization and first person narratives of both celebrities and of ‘ordinary’ people. This article uses three case studies which have been chosen to represent both the mainstream conventions of the holiday programme per se, plus the influences of lifestyle programming’s emphasis on recreation, re-creation and makeover and the conventions of docusoap narratives, to argue that the genre is increasingly foregrounding the stories, however constructed, of performers-astourists/tourists-as-performers over representations of the tourist destination. </dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Sage</dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://online.sagepub.com/</dc:relation><dc:source>1468-7976</dc:source><dc:subject>G1</dc:subject><dc:title>Singular encounters : mediating the tourist destination in British television holiday programmes &#13;

The impact of the tourism commodification process upon environs and culture has generated a veritable plethora of studies, the precursor to this being MacCannell's theorization of the leisure class. In an attempt to explain the meaning and significance of social relations within a festival context, specific attention is paid to Maffesoli's theory of the neo-tribe and emotional community. Drawing upon empirical data from a questionnaire survey and in-depth interviews with festival producers and consumers of a Celtic music festival in Scotland, this article challenges Maffesoli's dismissal of the relevance of class grouping and suggests dimensions of the backstage region of festival social space: first, through participating in "real" culture in an intimate environment; second, by playing an instrument or singing; third, through the strengthening of social networks. It is argued that the tourism commodification process is resisted to attain authentic social relations through the backstage region of social space.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/59/1/eResearch_59.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Cognizant Communication Corp</dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://www.cognizantcommunication.com/</dc:relation><dc:source>1098-304X</dc:source><dc:subject>GT</dc:subject><dc:title>Festivity and sociability : a study of a Celtic music festival</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Matheson, Catherine M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-05</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Specifically, Robertson’s (1995) glocalisation thesis is drawn to bear upon specific Singaporean tourism policies, namely strategies for events and festivals. The objective of the paper is to offer a rich, deep study of Singapore’s tourism and event policy in relation to the impact of globalising influences upon its cultural events, and to elaborate upon both the development of events and festivals within Singapore and the workings of the glocalisation process in this context. The literature accords little space to the relationship between events and festivals and tourism in Singapore and this paper seeks to offer some insights into this under-researched&#13;
area. This is especially significant given the emphasis upon festivals at a policy level in Singapore and, furthermore, as a means of comprehending the workings of the glocalisation process. Interviews were carried out with six key policy makers in Singapore, and one Director of a private company who delivers events on behalf of the City.&#13;
We conclude that the prosecution and delivery of policies for tourism generally, and cultural events in particular, in Singapore represent key evidential elements of Robertson’s (1995) glocalisation thesis and that these are most evident in the character and development of events.&#13;
Moreover, it is contended that the relationship between tourism bodies and host communities corroborates claims made by critics of the cultural imperialism thesis and, again, supports Robertson’s glocalisation thesis. As Robertson noted, and the findings in the paper demonstrate, globalising influences are not in opposition to the local manifestation of cultural identities in Singapore as there is space for both the local and the global within glocalisation. It is not a relationship whereby culturally imperialistic global forces subsume the local in a&#13;
culturally homogeneous, unified way.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/60/1/FoleyMcPhersonMatheson.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>International Journal of Event Management Research</dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://www.ijemr.org/</dc:relation><dc:source>1833-0681</dc:source><dc:subject>GT</dc:subject><dc:title>Globalisation and Singaporean festivals</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Matheson, Catherine M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Foley, Malcolm</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>McPherson, Gayle</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2006</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The aim is to examine the representation of public relations expertise produced by practitioners in cooperation with a professional association. Using narrative concepts such as character, narrative function, plot, point of view, and time, the analysis identifies ways in which the actual experience of practice is narratively transformed, and reflects on the reasons behind this transformation.

Our aim was to conduct a systematic review of randomised controlled trials to investigate the effectiveness of extracorporeal shock wave therapy and to produce a precise estimate of the likely benefits of this therapy. Methods We conducted a systematic review of all randomised controlled trials (RCTs) identified from the Cochrane Controlled trials register, MEDLINE, EMBASE and CINAHL from 1966 until September 2004. We included randomised trials which evaluated extracorporeal shock wave therapy used to treat plantar heel pain. Trials comparing extra corporeal shock wave therapy with placebo or different doses of extra corporeal shock wave therapy were considered for inclusion in the review. We independently applied the inclusion and exclusion criteria to each identified randomised controlled trial, extracted data and assessed the methodological quality of each trial. Results Six RCTs (n = 897) permitted a pooled estimate of effectiveness based on pain scores collected using 10 cm visual analogue scales for morning pain. The estimated weighted mean difference was 0.42 (95% confidence interval 0.02 to 0.83) representing less than 0.5 cm on a visual analogue scale. There was no evidence of heterogeneity and a fixed effects model was used. Conclusion A meta-analysis of data from six randomised-controlled trials that included a total of 897 patients was statistically significant in favour of extracorporeal shock wave therapy for the treatment of plantar heel pain but the effect size was very small. A sensitivity analysis including only high quality trials did not detect a statistically significant effect.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/63/1/shock.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>BioMed Central</dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://www.biomedcentral.com/</dc:relation><dc:source>1471-2474</dc:source><dc:subject>RD</dc:subject><dc:title>The effectiveness of extra corporeal shock wave therapy for plantar heel pain : a systematic review and meta-analysis</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Thomson, Colin E</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Crawford, Fay</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Murray, Gordon</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-04-22</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/1471-2474-6-19</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

This element of their theory is derived from their notion of antagonism, in which a relation with a ground is brought into question by revealing its contingency. This article argues that the political dimension of this argument makes sense only in the context of Laclau and Mouffe's notion of modernity. However, the universalizing of modernity as the form of hegemony reduces the ontological notion of antagonism to a dialectical or empirical notion of contradiction. This article examines two key moves in this process: first, the reduction of the subject to Lacan's account of the subject; and second, the reduction of modernity to an ontotheologicalpolitical structure derived from Lefort as the support of the hegemonic subject. From this the article examines Laclau's response to the exhaustion of political modernity in the figure of complexity, from which antagonism is evacuated through the hegemony of the category of myth. Finally, the article discusses a non-hegemonic approach to antagonism derived from the work of Foucault, Wolin and Rancière.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/64/1/64.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>SAGE</dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://www.sagepub.com/</dc:relation><dc:source>Online ISSN: 1461-720X      Print ISSN: 0952-6951</dc:source><dc:subject>JC</dc:subject><dc:title>The hegemony of hegemony</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Valentine, Jeremy</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2001-02</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1177/095269510101400105</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

It begins by examining critical polemics around culture and postmodernity and moves on to consider Bennett's Foucauldian approach to cultural criticism. Although critical of Bennett's approach, the paper retains the Foucauldian notion of governmentality as the explanation of governance as a form of rule. The relevance of governance to cultural studies is shown through the argument that the political agency of cultural studies rests on an administrative structure that can no longer be verified empirically or conceptually. The argument proceeds by proposing that the liquidation of this political agency has been caused by the cultural agency of postmodernity, to which administrative and political authority is subordinate. Governance is the political expression of this state of affairs. After outlining the general features of governance the paper concludes with a discussion of how the political agency of culture is expressed through governance.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/65/1/65.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Routledge, part of the Taylor &amp; Francis Group</dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/subjecthome?db=jour</dc:relation><dc:source>1362-5179</dc:source><dc:subject>HM</dc:subject><dc:title>Governance and cultural authority</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Valentine, Jeremy</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2002-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/1362517022019748</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

The main reason given for this phenomenon is the convergence of the collapse of notions of the political and aesthetic causality of art and culture with the destabilizing effects of postmodernism on organizational and administrative stability. After a discussion of the emergence of political regimes of audit within relations between culture and administration, the article locates the causes of the dominance of 'cultural governance' within the dynamics of modernist aesthetic values such as autonomy. The article concludes with a discussion of some optimistic possibilities that may arise from this scenario. </dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Berghahn Journals </dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://www.berghahnbooks.com/journals/index.php</dc:relation><dc:source>0155-977X </dc:source><dc:subject>HM</dc:subject><dc:title>Political art, cultural policy, and artistic agency </dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Valentine, Jeremy</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.3167/sa.2007.510108</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Their specific focus is the American development of Laban’s work which includes elements such as the use of “shape” as a fourth category of movement quality and Bartenieff Fundamentals as a body training system. Reference to the British applications of Laban to this field will be reviewed in the context of history and the evolution of the system.&#13;
&#13;
Ms Penfield and Ms Steel, both certified movement analysts, will use their teaching of first and second year acting students at QMUC as their primary source to conduct their investigations of this area. Workshops and, it is hoped, papers or possibly a textbook will come from the co-teaching in the autumn semester of 2005. Investigations of such areas as best teaching practice, reflective work, engaging students in a creative process and movement/body level practice as research will have some focus in the recording and evaluating of this project.&#13;
&#13;
This is not seen as an exercise to prove that the American Laban development is better than such stalwarts of the trade as Grotowsky, Stanislavsky, Michael Chekov, etc., but rather to explore the particular contribution of the Laban/Bartenieff framework to the training of actors from the point of view of two different English speaking cultures. In this case the “two cultures” are two higher education institutions in Scotland and Virginia respectively; conservatoire training courses to degree level which prepare individuals over the age of 18 for the acting profession (vocational work in the context of an academic structure).</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/72/2/reportLMA.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>PALATINE</dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://www.palatine.ac.uk/development-awards/384/</dc:relation><dc:source>Laban Movement Analysis for Actors: A Teaching Collaboration between Kedzie Penfield and Judith Steel</dc:source><dc:subject>PN</dc:subject><dc:title>Application of Laban Movement Analysis to a movement for actors training program : excerpts from a teaching collaboration</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Penfield, Kedzie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

and advertising efforts towards minority and ethnic groups. In addition, as the UK’s ethnic minorities grow in both numbers and in terms of prosperity, so does the commercial significance of this market. A clearer understanding of both the nature of changing markets&#13;
and the relative importance of different minority ethnic groups as consumers is imperative to facilitate both consumer understanding and business development; marketers need to understand better how to target these people, what they have in common with the mainstream and where the differences lie. This paper seeks to describe current understanding of ethnic consumers and their impact on the marketplace while highlighting an area where&#13;
future research is potentially of considerable benefit.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/76/1/76.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Blackwell Publishing Ltd</dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/</dc:relation><dc:source>1470-6431 1470-6423</dc:source><dc:subject>HF</dc:subject><dc:title>Missed opportunities? : reaching the ethnic consumer market</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Bent, Richard</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Seaman, Claire</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Emslie, Lisa</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Scottish Centre for Enterprise and Ethnic Business Research, Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, UK</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1470-6431.2006.00578.x</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

This study seeks to add to the very limited academic literature on the topic by investigating the application of marketing&#13;
principles to the task, in Scotland.&#13;
Design/methodology/approach – Data for interpretation were collected by six semi-structured in-depth interviews with public-sector business-support providers in Edinburgh and Glasgow.&#13;
Findings – Providers are aware of the lack of awareness among MEBs of the services available, and the consequent poor take-up rates. Some have made limited efforts to initiate change by beginning to differentiate their products and services, and market them proactively, but others still favour a generic approach. A constraint on further progress is the lack of useful databases.&#13;
Research limitations/implications – This was a small-scale exploratory study. It would be useful to use its tentative findings as the departure point for broader-based studies, especially where MEBs are more numerous.&#13;
Practical implications – The findings contain lessons for academic researchers and marketing practitioners with an interest in ethnic minorities. Various “differentiated” marketing strategies are discussed, and promotional strategies for targeting the owners and operators of MEBs.&#13;
Originality/value – This study adds significantly to the published body of knowledge. Its findings are potentially applicable in the wider context of non-profit, public-sector and services marketing.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/77/1/77.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Emerald</dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://www.emeraldinsight.com/Insight/menuNavigation.do?hdAction=InsightHome</dc:relation><dc:source>0263-4503</dc:source><dc:subject>HF</dc:subject><dc:title>Public sector business support providers : marketing business support to the ethnic business sector</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Bent, Richard</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Emslie, Lisa</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Scottish Centre for Enterprise and Business Research,Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, UK</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1108/02634500710774941</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

In response to this financial incentive, the vast majority of national museums and galleries that levied charges for general admission acted to remove these charges. The removal of general admission charges had been an important Labour Party policy commitment in Opposition, and senior Labour politicians pointed to the 2001 removal of charges as a major achievement in relation to the Labour Government's public policy agenda. This article examines the Labour Government's 2001 policy drive toward the removal of general admission charges at the national museums and galleries, and reports on research conducted during 2002 into the early implementation of this public policy shift.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/89/1/eResearch%2089.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>SAGE Publications (UK and US)</dc:publisher><dc:relation>http://www.sagepub.co.uk/</dc:relation><dc:source>0952-0767</dc:source><dc:subject>AM</dc:subject><dc:title>The governance of museums : a study of admission charges policy in the UK</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Falconer, Peter K</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Blair, Sharon</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1177/095207670301800206</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

The children completed a battery of speech, language and nonverbal assessments and a procedure for assessing receptive and expressive prosody.Language skills varied, but the majority of children had deficits in at least one aspect of language with expressive language most severely impaired.

New procedures for assessing both of these are now available and have been used in a study of 31 children with high-functioning autism and 72 controls. Some of the findings from a review of the literature on prosodic skills in individuals with autism are presented, and it is shown how these skills are addressed in a new prosodic assessment procedure, PEPS-C. A case study of a child with high-functioning autism shows how his prosodic skills can be evaluated on the prosody assessment procedure, and how his skills compare with those of controls. He is also assessed for pragmatic ability. Results of both assessments are&#13;
considered together to show how, in the case of this child, specific prosodic skill-levels can affect pragmatic ability.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/146/1/wp4.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>QMU Speech Science Research Centre Working Papers</dc:source><dc:subject>PE</dc:subject><dc:title>Assessing prosodic and pragmatic ability in children with high-functioning autism.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Peppé, Sue JE</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>McCann, Joanne</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Gibbon, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>O'Hare, Anne</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Rutherford, Marion</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>WP-4</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

This study aimed to identify the nature and extent of receptive and expressive prosodic deficits in children with high-functioning autism. In a data-based group study, 31&#13;
children with high-functioning autism (HFA, excluding Asperger's syndrome) and 72 typically developing controls matched on verbal mental age completed a prosody&#13;
assessment procedure (PEPS-C). Children with HFA performed significantly less well than controls on eleven out of twelve prosody tasks (p &lt; .005). Receptive prosodic&#13;
skills showed strong correlation (p &lt; .01) with verbal mental age in both groups, as did, to a lesser extent, expressive prosodic skills. Receptive prosodic scores also correlated with expressive prosody scores, particularly in grammatical prosodic functions(turnend and prosodic phrasing/ chunking). Prosodic development in the HFA group&#13;
appeared to be delayed in many aspects of prosody and deviant in some (e.g. accent tended to be placed early in focus tasks and Same items were often perceived as&#13;
Different in auditory discrimination tasks). The study demonstrates that receptive prosodic deficit, expressive prosodic skills, and language development are closely&#13;
associated in the condition of autism. Receptive prosodic skills would be an appropriate focus for clinical intervention, and further investigation of atypical&#13;
expressive prosody and the relationship between prosody and social skills is warranted.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/147/1/wp-5.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>QMU Speech Science Research Centre</dc:publisher><dc:source>QMU Speech Science Research Centre Working Papers</dc:source><dc:subject>PE</dc:subject><dc:title>Receptive and expressive prosodic ability in children with high-functioning autism.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Peppé, Sue JE</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>McCann, Joanne</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Gibbon, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>O'Hare, Anne</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Rutherford, Marion</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2006</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Monograph</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>WP-5</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

In Kanner’s original description of autism he noted disordered prosody as a common feature. Despite this, the area has received very little attention in the literature and those studies that have addressed prosody in autism have not addressed its relationship to other aspects of communication. This chapter will give an overview of research in this area to date and summarise the findings of&#13;
a study designed to investigate the prosody and language skills of 31 children with high functioning autism. Two case studies of children with autism will be used to illustrate the relationship between language and prosody and to emphasise the prosodic impairment present in many children with autism.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/148/1/wp-6.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>QMU Speech Science Research Centre Working Papers</dc:source><dc:subject>PE</dc:subject><dc:title>The prosody-language relationship in children with high-functioning autism</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>McCann, Joanne</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Peppé, Sue JE</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Gibbon, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>O'Hare, Anne</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Rutherford, Marion</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>WP-6</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

However, whereas&#13;
most disfluencies pass unnoticed, the repetitions, blocks and prolongations produced&#13;
by stutterers can have a severely disruptive effect on communication. The causes of&#13;
stuttering have proven hard to pin down - researchers differ widely in their views on&#13;
the cognitive mechanisms that underlie it. The present chapter presents initial research&#13;
which supports a view (Vasic and Wijnen, this volume) that places the emphasis&#13;
firmly on the self-monitoring system, suggesting that stuttering may be a consequence&#13;
of over-sensitivity to the types of minor speech error that we all make.&#13;
Our study also allows us to ask whether the speech of people who stutter is perceived&#13;
as qualitatively different from that of nonstutterers, when it is fluent and when it&#13;
contains similar types of minor disfluencies. Our results suggest that for closely&#13;
matched, naturally occurring segments of speech, listeners rate the speech of stutterers&#13;
as more disfluent than that of nonstutterers.&#13;

Higher peaks were found to be systematically associated with higher filled-pause values, supporting the 'relative' hypothesis. A linear model, in which filled-pause F0 was expressed as an invariant (over speakers) proportion of the distance between preceding peak F0 and a speaker-dependent baseline F0, produced results nearly identical to those of a two-parameter model in which the coefficients of peak and baseline were allowed to vary freely. The model was less appropriate for filled pauses after sentence-initial peaks, but unaffected by temporal variables.&#13;

This study proposes that people with communication difficulties serve as a litmus test for whether practitioners are truly sensitised to the impact of their own communication skills. It is based on interviews with service users and carers. Three key themes emerged, namely inclusion , the process of communication , and continuity . Inclusion is concerned with effective participation in society in general and access to health care in particular. The communication process describes the way in which health issues are raised and addressed. Continuity refers to the way in which time interacts with the relationship between user and provider. The paper concludes that effective communication is not simply a set of taught behaviours but reflects a set of values that create the conditions for improving both communication and clinical outcomes.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/413/2/413.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Routledge</dc:publisher><dc:source>09687599</dc:source><dc:title>Making sense in primary care: levelling the playing field for people with communication difficulties</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Law, James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Bunning, K</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Byng, S</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Farrelly, S</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Heyman, B</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/09687590500059267</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Persistent language&#13;
difficulties place significant financial pressures on health and education services. This has led to large investment in intervention in the early years; yet, little is known about the actual and relative costs of early years provision.&#13;
Aims: To profile the different costs incurred by two Early Years Centres (EYCs)&#13;
partially funded by the charity I CAN and children receiving what might be&#13;
termed ‘routine’ NHS speech therapy to provide an analysis of cost efficiency and equity.&#13;
Methods &amp; Procedures: Costings for service provision for 91 children (mean age 2;9) were collected. The activity of staff at each site and the cost of staff allocated to services were computed. Data on other resources were also&#13;
collected. Outcomes &amp; Results: The cost per child per session was on average £12. Despite the longer course of intervention in the first centre (10 compared with 6 weeks),&#13;
the cost of the course per child was of the same order (£245 compared with £253). The annual cost of the early years provision per child was higher relative to the costs of the NHS provision, £645 compared with £181 in one EYC (A)&#13;
and £462 compared with £173 in the other (B). When the cost of standard nursery provision was factored in, the difference in annual costs was rather less, with £5298 for the early years provision (EYC A) relative to £4276 in the&#13;
comparison group. By contrast, the annual cost of early provision rises to £5926 relative to £8861 in the comparison group (EYC B).</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/416/1/416.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Taylor &amp; Francis (Informa Healthcare)</dc:publisher><dc:source>13682822</dc:source><dc:title>Early Years Centres for pre-school children with primary language difficulties: what do they cost, and are they cost-effective?</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Law, James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Dockrell, J E</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Castelnuovo, E</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Williams, K</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Seeff, B</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Normand, Charles</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2006-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/13682820500126643</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Dissertation abstracts. Search terms used stutt*,&#13;

Study selection and assessment: Studies were&#13;
included if (a) the participants were diagnosed as&#13;
persons who stutter, (b) the treatment method was&#13;
behavioral, (c) there were outcomes of speech&#13;
behavior, and (d) the participants were randomly&#13;
assigned to an experimental and control (or comparison&#13;
condition) before the intervention. In terms&#13;
of quality assessment, the following data were&#13;
extracted from each included study: (a) intervention&#13;
implemented as described; (b) who administered the&#13;
outcomes measure; (c) participant recruitment procedure;&#13;
(d) subject assignment procedure; (e) method&#13;
of random assignment; and (f) blinding. Two&#13;
reviewers independently coded each study using&#13;
separate copies of the article. Disagreements were&#13;
resolved through discussion between the two raters.&#13;
If the disagreements persisted, the article was given&#13;
to a third reviewer until the disagreement was&#13;
resolved.&#13;
Participants: Participants diagnosed as people who&#13;
stutter (PWS), the treatment methods were behavioral,&#13;
outcomes were measured in terms of speech and&#13;
participants were randomly assigned to an experimental&#13;
and control (comparison) condition. Studies&#13;
with clutterers were excluded. Both children and&#13;
adults were included. No pharmacological treatments&#13;
were included. No restriction was imposed on&#13;
intensity or duration of intervention. Only randomised&#13;
controlled trials were included.&#13;
Outcomes: Typically speech production specifically&#13;
stuttered words or syllables per minute. Independent&#13;
coding was completed for participant, outcome,&#13;
treatment and design characteristics. Effect sizes were calculated by subtracting the post-test means&#13;
of the intervention and control groups and dividing&#13;
by the pooled standard deviation. Studies were&#13;
weighted for sample size. The Q statistic was used&#13;
to assess homogeneity. Sensitivity analyses were&#13;
also carried out.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/417/2/417.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Taylor &amp; Francis</dc:publisher><dc:source>17489539</dc:source><dc:title>Behavioral stuttering treatments are effective but no one treatment approach is more effective over other treatment approaches</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Law, James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/17489530701195331</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Such analyses raise both methodological and statistical challenges. A single data set was examined to investigate whether different established approaches to measuring change in children with specific language impairments alter the conclusions that can be drawn regarding the efficacy of an intervention.&#13;
Methods: Measures of cognitive and language skills were collected at baseline and at six months following an intervention. Reliable and valid psychometric measures were used. Data from the intervention study were used to explore the patterns of results obtained using four different measures of change: change of diagnostic category, differential improvement across assessment measures, item specific changes and predictors of individual change.&#13;
Results: Associations between different tests purporting to measure similar constructs were modest. The measures identified different children as impaired both at baseline and follow-up. No effect of intervention was evident when a categorical analysis of impairment was used. Both treatment and comparison children changed significantly across time on the majority of measures, providing evidence of development, but specific effects of the intensive intervention were evident using ANCOVAs. Item analysis indicated that one of the standardized language tests adopted in the evaluation was insensitive to change over a six month period. Change in individual children’s performance was predicted by language level on entry to&#13;
the project.&#13;
Conclusion: The implications of the results are discussed in terms of the range of analytic approaches available to&#13;
intervention researchers and the need to consider combinations of methods when analysing outcome data.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/420/1/420.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Taylor &amp; Francis</dc:publisher><dc:source>17489539</dc:source><dc:title>Measuring and understanding patterns of change in intervention studies with children: Implications for evidence-based practice</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Dockrell, J E</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Law, James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/17489530701437204</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Key issues analysed include the importance of the particular mission and responsibilities of the public sector; the range and influence of different stakeholders; the strategic portfolio choices open to decision-makers; the perverse logic of quality in this sector; and the peculiar nature of its customers and decision-makers. In highlighting crucial differences with the commercial sector, the paper raises some challenges for the quality movement as to how best it might support continuous improvement in this important sector in the future.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/447/1/447.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>MCB UP Ltd</dc:publisher><dc:source>09604529</dc:source><dc:title>Making the difference: quality strategy in the public sector</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Donnelly, Mike</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>1999</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1108/09604529910248803</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

illustrating the details of the UK ‘Sensible Drinking guidelines. Methods: Participants (N = 297, 53% male) recruited at four Edinburgh employment sites, each completed a short non-standardized questionnaire and poured their ‘usual measure of wine or spirit’ into a glass (purchased from four ‘high street’ outlets). The actual and estimated unit content of their poured drinks and&#13;
reactions to feedback were noted. Participants were informed of their daily limit of consumption in terms of this drink. Results: On average, drinks contained 2.05 UK units. Only 27% (N = 79) of respondents estimated the unit content of their drink within 10% of the true value. Of drinkers, 20.5% (N = 61) indicated that the results of the pouring test would influence their future pouring&#13;
(70% of these were women). When informed of daily limits of consumption in terms of personal drink measure, 46% (N = 132) of drinkers indicated they would usually exceed this. Conclusion: A practical demonstration of health guidelines presented in terms of personal drinking habits may contribute to dissemination of responsible drinking messages. Preliminary evidence suggests women may be particularly open to this approach. The utility of this intervention is underscored by recent figures highlighting the increasing preference for home drinking.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/489/1/eResearch_489.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Oxford Journals</dc:publisher><dc:source>07350414</dc:source><dc:title>Practical demonstration of personal daily consumption limits: a useful intervention tool to promote responsible drinking among UK adults?</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Gill, Jan</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>O'May, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1093/alcalc/agm049</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

(SEHD). It provides a case study in the introduction of a new health care worker role into an&#13;
already well established and "mature" workforce configuration It assesses the role of US style&#13;
physician assistants (PAs), as a precursor to planned "piloting" of the PA role within the National&#13;
Health Service (NHS) in Scotland.&#13;
The evidence base for the use of PAs is examined, and ways in which an established role in one&#13;
health system (the USA) could be introduced to another country, where the role is "new" and&#13;
unfamiliar, are explored.&#13;
The history of the development of the PA role in the US also highlights a sometimes somewhat&#13;
problematic relationship between P nursing profession. The paper highlights that the concept of&#13;
the PA role as a 'dependent practitioner' is not well understood or developed in the NHS, where&#13;
autonomous practice within regulated professions is the norm. In the PA model, responsibility is&#13;
shared, but accountability rests with the supervising physician. Clarity of role definition, and&#13;
engendering mutual respect based on fair treatment and effective management of multi-disciplinary&#13;
teams will be pre-requisites for effective deployment of this new role in the NHS in Scotland.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/490/1/eResearch_490.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>BioMed Central</dc:publisher><dc:source>14784491</dc:source><dc:title>New Role, New Country: introducing US physician assistants to Scotland</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Buchan, James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>O'May, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ball, Jane</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/1478-4491-5-13</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Effective interventions remain elusive. The aim of this study was to investigate the levels of knowledge relating to UK ‘Sensible Drinking’ guidelines, definitions of binge drinking and attitude to drink labelling initiatives amongst female school leavers enrolling at university.&#13;
Methods Non-standardized questionnaires were administered and completed by researchers during the process of matriculation (response rate 94%; n = 180).&#13;
Results The survey revealed that recommended daily guidelines for women were not recalled by 54% of participants; 52% could not quote the unit content of their favoured alcoholic drink, whereas only 14% reported the use of the UK unit system to guide drinking. Personal quantitativedefinitions of binge drinking varied by a factor of 18.&#13;
Conclusion A rewording of the UK Sensible Drinking message to one recognizing the needs of different population groups and their particularlanguage of consumption measure is timely.&#13;

Unit labelling of alcohol drink containers was introduced in 1998 on a voluntary basis. In 2004 the government encouraged manufacturers to add messages on sensible drinking.2 &#13;
&#13;
We investigated two interrelated aspects of public health education—recall of sensible drinking messages and awareness of drink labelling—among Scottish supermarket shoppers. The supermarket visited has pre-empted UK drink labelling innovations—since 2003 wine sourced from its own supplier has displayed a comprehensive label showing the percentage of alcohol, the units of alcohol in the particular bottle, and daily guidelines of sensible drinking for both sexes. &#13;
&#13;
Shoppers at three city supermarkets were approached on three consecutive weekdays (July 2005). Of 263 drinkers surveyed, 174 (66%) were women and 248 (94%) purchased alcoholic drinks from supermarkets.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/492/1/eResearch_492.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>09598138</dc:source><dc:title>People seem confused about sensible drinking messages</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Gill, Jan</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>O'May, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/bmj.332.7536.302-a</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

This small-scale local study considered the experience and adjustment of 26 refugees and asylum-seekers resettling in Edinburgh who had been identified as at particular risk of social isolation. While 92 per cent of refugees reported having social contact outside the home, only 19 per cent had established contacts outside refugee networks and language classes. 54 per cent of the sample scored at levels on the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) indicative of a diagnosis of an anxiety disorder, with 42 per cent scoring at levels indicative of a diagnosis of depression. Levels of both anxiety and depression increased with length of time in the UK. Social contacts outside the home were generally infrequent and, while their frequency was not found to be associated with lower levels of mental health symptoms, refugees themselves prioritized increased social contact above assistance with practical issues and the provision of counselling. Particular interest was expressed in contact with local individuals and groups that could serve as a ‘bridge’ into host country customs and practices. In the context of a growing literature regarding post-migratory adjustment, the study supports the vulnerability of resettling refugees (particularly those who are single) to poor mental health. While the protective influence on mental health of family linkage and wider social support was not demonstrated by findings, refugees' prioritization of needs suggests that refugee settlement following a ‘dispersal’ strategy should explicitly seek both to facilitate family and wider co-ethnic linkage and to identify mechanisms for ‘bridging’ support from indigenous, majority populations.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/496/1/eResearch_496.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>OUP</dc:publisher><dc:source>09516328</dc:source><dc:title>Community Contact and Mental Health amongst Socially Isolated Refugees in Edinburgh</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Ager, Alastair</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Malcolm, M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Sadollah, S</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>O'May, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1093/jrs/15.1.71</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

This paper discusses what is meant by skill mix, provides a typology of the different approaches to assessing skill mix and examines, by means of case studies, the contextual, political, social and economic factors that play a part in determining skill mix. These factors are examined in relation to three factors: the reasons (or drivers) for examining skill mix; the impact of contextual constraints; and the effect of varying spans of managerial control. Case studies conducted in Costa Rica, Finland, Mexico, the UK and the USA are used to explore the reality of assessing skill in different contexts and health care settings. We argue that, although skill mix may be a universal challenge, it is not a challenge that all managers or health professionals can meet in the same way, or with the same resources. Context can have a significant effect on the ability of health service managers to assess and change skill mix. The key determinant is the extent to which these factors are in the locus of control of management nationally, regionally, or locally, within different countries. We emphasise the need to evaluate the problem and examine the context, before deciding if a change in skill mix is the answer. The local managerial span of control and degree of organisational flexibility will be major factors in determining the likely impact of any attempts to change skill mix. Before embarking on a skill mix review, any organisation should ask itself the question: 'If changing skill mix is the answer, what is the question?'</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/498/1/eResearch_498.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Royal Society of Medicine Press</dc:publisher><dc:source>13558196</dc:source><dc:title>If changing skill mix is the answer, what is the question?</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Buchan, James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ball, Jane</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>O'May, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1258/1355819011927549</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

These guidelines emphasise the need to evaluate the problem, and examine the context, before deciding if skill&#13;
mix is the answer. The guidelines are provided in the knowledge that skill mix is rarely examined in a “pure” theoretical sense by organisations. They have to adopt a pragmatic approach which takes account of the day-to-day realities of their priorities and resources.&#13;
The paper argues that changing skill mix is not a panacea for all the ills of an organisation. It has a role to play in improving organisational effectiveness and quality of care, but it must be recognised for what it is - a process for achieving change. Four phases of the skill mix cycle are described: evaluating the need for change; identifying the opportunities and barriers for change; planning for change; and making change happen. The paper concludes by&#13;
emphasising that skill mix is not just a technical exercise. It is a method of achieving organisational change which requires careful planning, communication, implementation and evaluation if it is to achieve its objectives.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/499/1/eResearch_499.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>World Health Organization</dc:publisher><dc:source>Human Resources Development Journal</dc:source><dc:title>Determining skill mix: practical guidelines for managers and healthcare professionals</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Buchan, James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>O'May, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

implementation, and discusses emergent issues. The paper is based on research funded by the Department of Health&#13;
(England) and by North Sta�ordshire NHS Trust. A literature search was undertaken using the terms `shared&#13;
governance' and `empowerment', restricted to English language. The databases used were CINAHL, British Nursing&#13;
Index, Medline, Social Sciences Citation Index and FirstSearch, and the search period was January 1988±May 1998.&#13;
Initially, nearly 500 articles were identified. This search also highlighted articles describing participative&#13;
management, professional practice models, and self-managed work teams. For the purposes of this review, only&#13;
published articles which either described and/or evaluated the implementation of shared governance were analysed.&#13;
According to these criteria, 48 studies, which were obtained by the cut-off date, were included for detailed&#13;
assessment. # 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd.

It investigates the literature pertaining to different models of contractual employment for nurses that ‘bridge’ practice and education in order to identify the evidence base and current practice in other countries. The specific context for the review was the development of clinical education career pathways in Scotland as part of Modernising Nursing Careers (MNC) initiative. The objectives were to review the literature on evaluation, and on reported strengths and weakness of different models of employment/deployment of nurses in practice/education roles, to provide a typology of the key characteristics of these different roles – where possible to include job&#13;
descriptions, types of contractual employment (e.g. fixed term, open ended, joint appointment, sessional etc.); employment status; work location(s) etc. and to highlight examples of such roles in different health systems.&#13;
Areas explored in the review included models of employment, career structure, and role content of nurses in these roles. In practice the review of published material highlighted that the literature did not enable all the&#13;
objectives to be met in detail- in particular there is little published evidence on types of employment contracts etc. This may be because much of the publicly available literature is written from an educational delivery perspective rather than from a workforce/HR perspective. Supplemental information on this issue was obtained from contacts in other countries- notably Canada and New&#13;
Zealand- to provide relevant background information.&#13;
The Practice Education Facilitator (PEF) is one recent NHS Scotland role which aims to support mentors and mentorship in the clinical areas, helping develop and promote those areas as learning environments (NES, 2007). The&#13;
PEF is just one type of role that bridges between practice and education. The types and roles of personnel used to bridge the ‘practice-education gap’, or ‘practice-theory gap’, their places of practice, and conditions of employment&#13;
vary widely throughout the world. This review examines some of these roles, with the objective of examining strengths and weaknesses associated with different models of employment/deployment, with a view to informing NHS&#13;
Education for Scotland (NES).</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/502/1/eResearch_502.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>NHS Scotland</dc:publisher><dc:title>Review of Models of Employment for Nursing Roles which Bridge Practice and Education:A Report for NHS Education for&#13;

It provides background information on the role of physician assistants (PAs), and on their deployment in the United States and in England. The SEHD is planning to recruit and deploy a small number of US educated PAs in the NHS in Scotland in 2006.&#13;
&#13;
The primary focus of the paper is to identify lessons for consideration during planning and implementation of the planned “pilot”. This paper highlights key lessons from&#13;
the literature, and from key informants, on the employment of PAs.&#13;
&#13;
Readers who wish a comprehensive assessment and description of the development of the PA role in the USA, should consult the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) website (www.aapa.org) and also the core book by Hooker and&#13;
Cawley (2003).&#13;
&#13;
Given constraints of time and resources the focus of the review was on identifying key messages for Scotland; it was not structured as a systematic review (no systematic&#13;
review of physicians assistants was identified during the search). The review was supported by follow up contact with key individuals and representatives of organisations in the US and with UK organisations working with PAs. The purpose was to identify the issues that need be considered in the lead up to the recruitment and deployment of PAs in the NHS in Scotland.&#13;
&#13;
The remainder of the paper is in two sections: Section 2 reports key findings from the literature review; and Section 3 reports of follow up findings, and focuses on key&#13;
messages for Scotland.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/504/1/eResearch_504.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Queen Margaret University College</dc:publisher><dc:title>Physician Assistants in NHS Scotland: Reviewing the Issues.

well argued. An important component of current UK alcohol policy is the ‘Sensible Drinking’ message introduced in 1995 by the Department of Health which promotes limiting daily intake of alcohol to 2 - 3 UK units for women and 3 - 4 UK units for men.&#13;
&#13;
The effectiveness of this message is partly dependent on a clear understanding among drinkers of the term ‘unit’ used to quantify alcohol drinks. Early guidance equated a unit of alcohol with a ‘measure’ of spirit or a ‘glass’ of wine. However there is evidence to suggest that among the general public some confusion exists around the content of the message and the concept of a unit of alcohol. It may&#13;
be that a section of the UK population unwittingly exceeds recommended daily consumption guidelines purely for these reasons.&#13;
&#13;
In this report we describe the piloting of a simple practical intervention tool. Each participant in this study was asked to pour the drink of wine or spirit they would pour at home into a glass they selected from six (four wine, two spirit)purchased from UK ‘high street’ stores. The unit content of their poured drink and their personal daily limit in terms of this drink were then calculated and relayed back to the participant and their reaction noted. We hoped this exercise might illustrate in a very personal way the volume of alcoholic drink associated with their daily limits of consumption and thereby re-enforce the detail of campaigns promoting responsible drinking.&#13;
&#13;
Data were collected during a ten day period in December 2006. Study participants were either employees of a major UK financial institution or, staff and students&#13;
located at an academic institution in the same city. In addition to the pouring test, each participant completed a short questionnaire relating to the UK Sensible Drinking message.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/505/1/eResearch_505.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Alcohol Education Research Council</dc:publisher><dc:title>Awareness of unit content of self poured drinks by UK adults: a useful intervention tool?

Participatory approaches to research, learning and action can help people to find out about issues in their own communities and to develop solutions with their local communities to bring about change. The use of this approach demonstrates an understanding that older people are the best experts – they are wiser - about the problems that face older people. It enables the initiation of peer research and community solutions by older people themselves. Participatory appraisal also encourages people to be bolder - to take action and to speak out about the issues that concern them.&#13;
&#13;
This Bolder and Wiser course was held during June of 2005. The aim of the course was to engage older people in a participatory appraisal process which is enjoyable, wholly accessible and stimulates ongoing interest and involvement in research and development activity. &#13;
&#13;
The objectives of the course were:&#13;
1.	To identify key issues of concern for older people that can be investigated further using participatory appraisal methods.&#13;
2.	Offer experiential and practical training in participatory appraisal principles and methods.&#13;
3.	Develop the confidence and skills of older people to use at least five participatory appraisal methods to engage in peer research, learning and action.&#13;

Authorisation was given in 1997 to local authorities in England to offer cash payments to purchase care and support services through the implementation of The Community Care 1996 (Direct Payments) Act. &#13;
&#13;
This scheme was initially restricted to those aged between the ages of 18-65 years. However since February 2000 (July 2000 in Scotland) this has been extended to include disabled people aged 65 and over, and further expanded in 2001 to include young disabled people between the ages of 16 and 18 years. &#13;
&#13;
Prior to the implementation of the Community Care Act, procedures following a community care assessment placed the local authority in complete control regarding arranging and coordinating an individual’s care package. The local authority arranged when and where services were provided, and who would provide them. The direct payments scheme could offer an alternative, more flexible approach, with the potential to empower individuals choosing to opt into this scheme. Individuals in receipt of direct payments have control in making arrangements for the provision of services that work with their lifestyle as opposed to their lifestyle ‘fitting around’ local authority organised care and support services. Direct payments position the individual at the centre of control for their own service provision.&#13;
&#13;
Initially, direct payments as a scheme was relaxed and local authorities were not obliged to offer direct payments as an alternative to everyone. However, since April 2003 (June 2003 in Scotland), local authorities are now obliged to offer direct payments to all those eligible. Key criteria for eligibility to opt into this scheme are that direct payments in the form of cash can only be offered to those deemed able to consent and manage the direct payment, either alone or with support.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/508/1/eResearch_508.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>The Royal Bank of Scotland Centre for the Older Person’s Agenda</dc:publisher><dc:title>Direct payments: the views of older people from rural communities and ethnic minority groups.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Dewar, Belinda</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>O'May, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Donaldson, Caroline</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Monograph</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

to improve services in Scotland in accordance with the Social Justice initiative. Twelve local authorities were asked to put forward strategies for the delivery of better&#13;
services within neighbourhoods in their pathfinder area. Dumfries and Galloway council developed a strategy for older people called the Vulnerable Older People&#13;
Pathfinder (VOPP), known locally as ‘Guid Services for Older Folk’, which was funded by BNSF for a three year period. The VOPP, together with the Scottish Executive, developed a Local Outcome Agreement (LOA), with a headline aim, or outcome, to: “Enable more vulnerable people to stay living in their own homes for longer, by increasing the range, quality and accessibility of preventative services”. To that end BNSF has funded a number of projects providing preventative services for older people. This approach is underpinned by a wealth of research that highlights the&#13;
benefits of low-level preventative services to older people’s quality of life (e.g. Clark,et al. 1998).</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/509/1/eResearch_509.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>The Royal Bank of Scotland Centre for the Older Person’s Agenda</dc:publisher><dc:title>External evaluation of the Dumfries and Galloway Better Neighbourhood Services Fund (BNSF) Vulnerable Older People’s Pathfinder.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Newall, Elinor</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Gilloran, Alan</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>O'May, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Donaldson, Caroline</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Monograph</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

&#13;
Once an organisation has registered for the Award Programme, it can then begin to work through the three levels of Award, from Bronze, Silver, and on to Gold. All organisations have to address minimum health and safety requirements, and are required to submit a signed 11-point Health and Safety checklist prior to the Award assessment.&#13;
The first level of Award, Bronze, has three core criteria. The workplace must address Healthy Working Lives in the workplace; assess safety and health needs in the workplace; and raise awareness of Healthy Working Lives. &#13;
All the above criteria must be fulfilled and maintained before the workplace can progress to a Silver Award. It should be noted that at this stage, the workplace does not have to have a substance misuse policy in place.&#13;
To achieve a Silver award, the workplace should also incorporate benchmarking of Healthy Working Lives performance against other organisations or departments, and the sharing of good practice. In addition, the workplace has to introduce and implement a policy on alcohol and drugs that includes education about sensible drinking and counselling support.&#13;
The achievement of a Gold Award is dependent on the development of a three year strategy that keeps health on the agenda, and a one year rolling action plan. The organisation must demonstrate long-term commitment to maintaining and improving health in the workplace, and that the work undertaken at Bronze and Silver Award levels is ongoing.&#13;

labour intensive, and the level and mix of staff deployed is a central element in determining the cost of care and the quality of care. It is important that managers and&#13;
health professionals in any health care organization strive to identify the most effective mix of staff achievable within available resources and organizational priorities.&#13;
This report builds on the work already undertaken for WHO in this area, which developed a typology of approaches to skill mix (Buchan, Ball &amp; O’May, 1996; see also&#13;

Both joint proprioception and muscle torque are commonly assessed in patients with musculoskeletal complaints. It is unknown, however, if these measures change significantly on repeated application in healthy children and in children with HMS. Aim: To investigate the between-days repeatability of joint proprioception and muscle torque in these groups. Methods: Twenty children (10 healthy and 10 with HMS), aged eight to 15 years, were assessed on two separate occasions (one week apart) for joint kinaesthesia (JK), joint position sense (JPS), and the extensor and knee flexor muscle torque of the knee. JK was measured using threshold to detection of passive movement. JPS was measured using the absolute angular error (AAE; the absolute difference between the target and perceived angles). Knee extensor and flexor muscle torque was normalized to body weight. Results: Intra-class correlation coefficients (ICC) for JK, extensor and flexor muscle torque excellent in both groups (range 0.83 to 0.98). However, ICC values for JPS tests were poor to moderate in the two groups (range 0.18 to 0.56). 95% limits of agreement (LOA) were narrow in both cohorts for JK and muscle torque (indicating low systematic error) but wide for the JPS tests. 95% LOA also demonstrated that the measuring instruments used in this study had low between-days systematic error. Conclusions: Based on ICC and 95% LOA, the repeatability of JK and muscle torque measurements was excellent in both healthy children and those with HMS. The JPS test can only be assessed with poor to moderate repeatability. The use of the JPS test in these children should be undertaken with caution.

To test the impact of the implementation of Magnet principles of improving nurses' work environments. Background. Magnet hospital designation developed in the USA in the 1980s to recognise hospitals that had created excellent patient care environments and supported the professional practice of nursing. A pilot initiative in England was the first test of the applicability of Magnet standards outside the USA. Methods. Research methods included surveys of nurses in the demonstration hospital in a predesign and postdesign and comparisons to survey results of nurses practicing in a national sample of 30 National Health Service Trusts. Results. Prior to beginning the Magnet journey, the demonstration hospital had a nurse work environment that was somewhat less positive than the national sample NHS hospitals. Nurses practicing in the demonstration hospital were somewhat less satisfied with their jobs than nurses in other NHS hospitals. Following a two-year period during which the evidence-based Magnet standards were implemented and Magnet Designation was awarded, the quality of the nurse practice environment had improved significantly, as had job satisfaction of nurses and their appraisals of the quality of patient care. The quality of the nurse practice environment after Magnet designation was better than that of a national sample of NHS trusts. Improved nurse outcomes were because of the improved practice environment rather than staffing enhancements. Conclusions. Implementation of the Magnet hospital intervention was associated with a significantly improved nursing work environment as well as improved job-related outcomes for nurses and markers for quality of patient care. Relevance to clinical practice. Nurses can use Magnet principles to improve the quality of their work environments. © 2008 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/516/1/eResearch_516.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Wiley</dc:publisher><dc:source>09621067</dc:source><dc:title>Transformative impact of Magnet designation: England case study</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Aiken, Linda H</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Buchan, James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ball, Jane</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Rafferty, A M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2702.2008.02640.x</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

It highlights the scale of the challenge of nursing shortages, but also makes the point that there is a policy agenda that provides workable solutions. Results. &#13;
&#13;
An overview of nurse:population ratios in different countries and regions of the world, highlighting considerable variations, with Africa and South East Asia having the lowest average ratios. The paper argues that the 'shortage' of nurses is not necessarily a shortage of individuals with nursing qualifications, it is a shortage of nurses willing to work in the present conditions. The causes of shortages are multi-faceted, and there is no single global measure of their extent and nature, there is growing evidence of the impact of relatively low staffing levels on health care delivery and outcomes. The main causes of nursing shortages are highlighted: inadequate workforce planning and allocation mechanisms, resource constrained undersupply of new staff, poor recruitment, retention and 'return' policies, and ineffective use of available nursing resources through inappropriate skill mix and utilisation, poor incentive structures and inadequate career support. Conclusions. &#13;
&#13;
What now faces policy makers in Japan, Europe and other developed countries is a policy agenda with a core of common themes. First, themes related to addressing supply side issues: getting, keeping and keeping in touch with relatively scarce nurses. Second, themes related to dealing with demand side challenges. The paper concludes that the main challenge for policy makers is to develop a co-ordinated package of policies that provide a long term and sustainable solution. Relevance to clinical practice. &#13;
&#13;
This paper highlights the impact that nursing shortages has on clinical practice and in health service delivery. It outlines scope for addressing shortage problems and therefore for providing a more positive staffing environment in which clinical practice can be delivered.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/517/1/eResearch_517.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>09621067</dc:source><dc:title>Solving nursing shortages: a common priority</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Buchan, James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Aiken, Linda H</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2702.2008.02636.x</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

This paper is a report of an integrative literature review to explore the evidence base for nursing in the community. Background. The Scottish Executive (2005) in Scotland (UK), announced that a review of nursing in the community should be undertaken to inform implementation of the policy Delivering for Health. This policy called for a fundamental shift in the focus of care away from acute hospitals into the community where health care in the future will be concentrated. To inform this review of nursing in the community, the Scottish Executive commissioned a literature review. Methods. An integrative literature review was carried out during 2006 (February to April). We carried out an extensive literature search using multiple electronic databases and hand-searched key texts to find suitable systematic reviews and primary quantitative and qualitative papers for review (1996-March 2006). We included English language publications describing systematic reviews and primary empirical research about community nurses' contributions to the health of people. Findings. Seventy-three papers (12 systematic reviews and 61 studies) met our inclusion criteria. All of the studies were scored as either 'low' or 'medium' quality. None merited a 'high' quality rating. Conclusions. There is little research evaluating the impact of community nursing actions. Adequately resourced research is needed to strengthen the evidence base to support nurses in the community in delivering effective and efficient care that meet the health needs of people and communities. © 2008 The Authors.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/518/1/eResearch_518.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Wiley</dc:publisher><dc:source>03092402</dc:source><dc:title>Establishing the contribution of nursing in the community to the health of the people of Scotland: integrative literature review</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Kennedy, Catriona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Christie, J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Harbison, Jean</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Maxton, F</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Rutherford, Ishbel</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2648.2008.04621.x</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

The paper describes the scope, principles and methods of the test and the modifications other than lexical translation that were required to produce a Spanish procedure. Findings from the first studies of data collected using the Spanish test are briefly considered: these suggest crosslinguistic parallels and English/Spanish differences in adult prosodic ability. Lengthier consideration is given to prosodic data from Spanish children and the use of prefinal contrastive accent in the two languages. We conclude that the test is a feasible and valid instrument for assessing Spanish prosodic ability and indicate possible directions for further research. © 2008 Elsevier B.V.

Aims: To investigate the effect of listeners' linguistic background on their perceptual ratings of hypernasality and the reliability of the ratings. Methods and Procedures: The speech samples were nine Cantonese non-nasal sentences produced by 22 speakers (20 speakers with hypernasality and two speakers with normal resonance). Twenty-four non-expert listeners (twelve Cantonese and twelve English) rated the speech samples using direct magnitude estimation. Outcomes and Results: The Cantonese listeners gave significantly higher ratings to the female speech samples (mean=76.02) than the English listeners (mean=59.24; t=3.189, p&lt;0.05). The difference in direct magnitude estimation ratings between the Cantonese (78.57) and English (70.83) listeners was not significant for the male samples (t=2.097, p&gt;0.05). Despite the difference in numerical ratings between the two groups of listeners, the high correlations between their ratings indicated that they ranked the speech samples in terms of hypernasality severity similarly. Both groups of listeners showed high inter-judge reliability but low intra-judge reliability for rating the two sets of speech samples. There was a significant difference in intra-judge reliability between the Cantonese (r=0.55) and English (r=0.39) listeners for the male samples (t=2.125, p&lt;0.05). Conclusions: Generally, the non-expert Cantonese and English listeners ranked the Cantonese samples in terms of hypernasality in a similar way. The reliability of ratings by non-expert listeners was moderate. The need for further cross-linguistic studies into perceptual evaluations of speech disorders is highlighted. © 2008 Royal College of Speech &amp; Language Therapists.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/523/1/eResearch_523.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Wiley</dc:publisher><dc:source>13682822</dc:source><dc:title>Effect of listeners' linguistic background on perceptual judgements of hypernasality</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Lee, Alice</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Brown, S</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Gibbon, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/13682820801890400</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

We hypothesized that opportunities for influence and process competence would each foster higher levels of individual member participation. We tested these hypotheses in a sample of 818 members within 79 youth-oriented coalitions. Opportunities for influence were measured as members' perceptions of an inclusive board leadership style and members' reported committee roles. Coalition process competence was measured through member perceptions of strategic board directedness and meeting effectiveness. Members reported three types of participation within meetings as well as how much time they devoted to coalition business beyond meetings. Generalized linear models accommodated clustering of individuals within coalitions. Opportunities for influence were associated with individuals' participation both within and beyond meetings. Coalition process competence was not associated with participation. These results suggest that leadership inclusivity rather than process competence may best facilitate member participation. © 2008 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/524/1/eResearch_524.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Springer Verlag</dc:publisher><dc:source>00910562</dc:source><dc:title>What Motivates People to Participate More in Community-based Coalitions?</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Wells, Rebecca</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ward, Ann J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Feinberg, M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Alexander, J A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-09</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s10464-008-9182-z</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Pulmonary rehabilitation has been found to be an effective strategy for managing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, attendance at such programmes is not optimal, therefore, this study aimed to develop an in-depth understanding of views regarding attendance at pulmonary rehabilitation and experiences which may have shaped these views.  Methods.  An inductive qualitative study was carried out within the framework of Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis. Five female and four male individuals with COPD who had been referred for pulmonary rehabilitation participated in semi-structured interviews. Interviews were conducted prior to participation in pulmonary rehabilitation.  Results.  Three main themes were identified that related to views about attending pulmonary rehabilitation. The first is entitled Desired benefits of attending pulmonary rehabilitation, which described realistic hopes about impact on daily life. The second theme was called Evaluating the threat of exercise, and it encompassed both positive and negative evaluations; some interviewees described fear and avoidance of exercise, while others were determined to overcome symptoms. These attitudes extended to views about pulmonary rehabilitation. The third theme was called Attributing value to pulmonary rehabilitation. Contrasting opinions about the value of attending pulmonary rehabilitation appeared to be influenced by the nature of prior interactions with health personnel and systems as well as information about the programme provided at referral. The referrer's attitude towards pulmonary rehabilitation appeared to be particularly influential.  Conclusion.  In summary, when considering rehabilitation attendance, potential participants are able to identify possible benefits, but previous experiences of symptoms and attitudes towards their condition can influence views both positively and negatively. Information and enthusiasm conveyed by the referring clinician, as well as previous interactions with health professionals can have powerful impact on views about attending. Referral practices should be informative and enthusiastic to increase the likelihood of uptake.

However, effective implementation must be evaluated. A survey was carried out to evaluate a clinical guideline for osteoporosis, endorsed by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP). A stratified proportional sample of 588 relevant National Health Service providers was selected from Strategic Health Authorities/Health Boards throughout the UK. Random samples of 31 independent hospitals and 102 private practitioners were obtained from lists of seven UK-based service providers and the CSP website. One hundred and twenty further surveys were sent through the clinical interest group, AGILE. The survey was developed to investigate awareness and use of the clinical guideline, current implementation strategies and barriers to implementation. Of the clinical sites sampled, 25% responded, giving 243 usable surveys. While guidelines were available in 62% of responding sites, only 35% reported its use - although this was higher in services with a primary osteoporosis caseload (45%). Only 6% reported formal implementation. Barriers to guideline use frequently highlighted a lack of resources and training. Survey responses indicate a lack of guideline use; this should be facilitated through formal implementation strategies, requiring training and resources.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/526/1/eResearch_526.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Taylor &amp; Francis Ltd</dc:publisher><dc:source>1403-8196</dc:source><dc:title>Are physiotherapy guidelines for the management of osteoporosis being implemented?

Lumbar microdiscectomy is becoming increasingly popular in the management of prolapsed intervertebral disc. The early stage of rehabilitation has been under-researched, with little documented about optimal activity levels during the initial six weeks. This study aimed to gain insight into patients' experiences of physiotherapy and activity choices during this period. &#13;
&#13;
Method. Eight participants were chosen purposively. All had undergone an uncomplicated lumbar microdiscectomy in the preceding six weeks in an acute neurosurgical unit in the Northeast of England. One-to-one semi-structured interviews were conducted in the participants' homes and transcribed. Data were thematically analysed within a constructionist framework. Mechanisms to ensure analytical rigour were implemented. &#13;
&#13;
Results. Three major themes were derived inductively from the data. The first, 'wish for precise movement boundaries,' described participants reduced levels of activity postoperatively as being related to high levels of anxiety about the surgery and fear of re-injury. The second theme suggested that physiotherapy failed to help participants explore their potential for activity. The final theme described post-operative fatigue. &#13;
&#13;
Conclusions. High levels of postoperative anxiety about movement and activity were not addressed postoperatively. This has significant clinical implications and highlights the need for further research.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/527/1/eResearch_527.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>09638288</dc:source><dc:title>What do patients feel they can do following lumbar microdiscectomy?

The need for a thorough description of sports physiotherapy was addressed through collaboration between the International Federation of Sports Physiotherapy (IFSP) and five European higher education institutions. This resulted in the Sports Physiotherapy for All Project, which has been successful in developing internationally accepted competencies and standards for sports physiotherapists. This article describes and reflects on the process to communicate useful lessons. &#13;
&#13;
Methods: A competency model was chosen to facilitate differentiation and communication of aspects of sports physiotherapy practice. Documentation relating to sports physiotherapy practice was collected from 16 countries and analysed thematically. A cut and paste method was used by a panel of experts to allocate themes to areas of practice within the competency model. Theme groups were used to select areas of practice for description in competency form. Standards were derived from competencies following in depth discussion with the expert panel, and triangulation with themes derived from international documentation. &#13;
&#13;
Results: A rigorous process of international review and revision led to the final list of 11 competencies and related standards, both accepted by the IFSP. &#13;
&#13;
Implications: This work provides a foundation for the development of an audit toolkit to guide demonstration and evaluation of competencies and standards. This provides a foundation for targeted career development activities, appropriate provision of training opportunities, and quality enhancement. The experiences gained during this project can inform other health professions and their specialisms when embarking on a similar journey.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/528/1/eResearch_528.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions</dc:publisher><dc:source>0090-7421</dc:source><dc:title>Processes in the Development of International Specialist Competencies and Standards</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Bulley, Catherine</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Donaghy, Marie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

This has led to increasing prominence of Masters level study as a route for professional development. Despite this, little is known regarding the thought processes of physiotherapists in relation to postqualification study. This qualitative study aimed to explore the influences on physiotherapists when deciding to undertake taught Masters level study. Semi-structured interviews were carried out with nine physiotherapists in two Scottish Higher Education institutions. Thematic analysis highlighted motivators and barriers that were intrinsic and extrinsic to the individual. Physiotherapists were strongly influenced by the desire to develop professionally, but had to overcome barriers such as lack of confidence to study at this level and lack of familiarity with the context and content of Masters level study. Findings suggest that increasing the familiarity of clinicians with aspects of Masters education would facilitate them in their decision to undertake postqualification study. Increasing early support strategies for Masters students would enable them to gain confidence and continue with their studies.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/529/1/eResearch_529.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>14038196</dc:source><dc:title>Influences on physiotherapists when deciding to study at Masters level: An exploratory study</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Glover, Peter</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Bulley, Catherine</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Howden, Stella</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/14038190701474278</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Limb swelling&#13;
leads to discomfort and pain, reduced movement and function, and acute inflammatory episodes. Individuals experience altered body image and self-esteem impacting on social interaction. There is evidence that specialist management of the condition leads to improved quality of life. Concern regarding the adequacy of lymphoedema services led to the commissioning of a needs assessment by the Core Cancer Review Group in Fife, Scotland. The needs assessment used a variety of methods. Current services were located through consultation of known providers and databases. Existing databases were analysed to find out the number of people requiring the service: hospital admissions&#13;
and diagnoses were analysed alongside a survey of primary practices in Fife. Access to existing services was explored through a telephone survey of referrers (n � 44), and&#13;
qualitative interviews with five service providers and five clients. At the time of the study, non-palliative National Health Service (NHS) provision consisted of one part-time&#13;
clinician; the service provided was under pressure from rapidly increasing referrals.However, consensus from referrers, providers, and clients indicated that there were&#13;
obstacles to achieving diagnosis and referral, especially for those with non-cancer-related lymphoedema. This was primarily due to poor referrer awareness of the condition, its management, and existing services, for example, only seven per cent of those surveyed would refer to existing specialist services. Delayed referral is a significant issue, as prompt intervention leads to more positive treatment outcomes. As a result of the needs assessment,&#13;
recommendations were made to increase staffing levels, promote awareness of the condition and related services, and improve geographical and multidisciplinary&#13;
coordination of the service.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/530/1/eResearch_530.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Wounds UK</dc:publisher><dc:source>14634236</dc:source><dc:title>A needs assessment of lymphoedema services in Fife and resulting recommendations</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Bulley, Catherine</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/S1463423607000151</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Design and evaluation of intervention strategies are frequently underpinned by the Transtheoretical Model, a process-oriented approach to behaviour change. One component of this model is the stage of change structure, which describes a person's behaviour in the context of a change process. It is frequently used to assess current levels of exercise or physical activity participation, and as a measure of change in behaviour following intervention. This paper discusses the importance of validity in the assessment of stages of change for exercise and physical activity. Various different scales exist and have been investigated for validity using comparisons with self-reported outcome measures and physiological markers of activity. Generally, comparative data provide evidence of stage hierarchies relating to both exercise and physical activity. However, this does not establish actual levels of activity represented by stage allocation, limiting its applicability. Further appropriately designed comparisons with objective measures are required if the stage of change structure is to be applied as a meaningful, accurate and sensitive tool for the measurement of physical activity and exercise.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/531/1/eResearch_531.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>09581596</dc:source><dc:title>A critical review of the validity of measuring stages of change in relation to exercise and moderate physical activity</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Bulley, Catherine</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Donaghy, Marie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Payne, A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Mutrie, N</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/09581590601045261</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Services for lymphoedema management are not standard throughout the UK. Recently a request for funding of lymphoedema services in Fife required the creation of a needs assessment. Aims: the study aim was to establish whether or not lymphoedema presents a health-related need, addressing two main questions: do people with lymphoedema have a legitimate physical and'or psychological need for health care and do they beenfit from the health care thay are given? Methods: Qualitative interviews were conducted to explore the views of five lymphoedema service providers and five service users. Thematic analysis was undertaken. Results: Interview analysis indicated that the physical and psychological impact of lymphoedema has detrimental effects on daily function and paricipation in various aspects of life. Participants benefited from management, both physically and psychologically. Those with realistic expectations of management and who wished to take control of their symptoms expressed greater satisfaction with lymphoedema services. Conclusions: Lymphoedema leads to physical, psychological and social problems that can be alleviated through specialist management, thereby representing a health-related need.

Like many impoverished sub-Saharan countries, Rwanda's health system has had an uncoordinated plethora of donors, shortage of health staff, inequity of access, and poor quality of care in health facilities. This report describes three health system developments introduced by the Rwandan government that are improving these barriers to care-ie, the coordination of donors and external aid with government policy, and monitoring the effectiveness of aid; a country-wide independent community health insurance scheme; and the introduction of a performance-based pay initiative. If these innovations are successful, they might be of interest to other sub-Saharan countries. However, Rwanda still does not have sufficient financial resources for health and will need additional external aid for some time to attain the Millennium Development Goals. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd.

Changing political, economic, social and technological factors can leave unprepared SMEs exposed to external as well as internal pressures, which can lead to underperformance, or in worst case scenario, business failure. This paper, reporting on the findings of exploratory research of nine UK-based visitor attractions, all qualifying as SMEs, suggests that the successful management of change is crucial for SMEs'survival and success. The findings argue that the current approach taken to organisational change management within the industry is bumpy incremental, bumpy continuous and planned. Hence, the paper provides a framework for managing organisational change based on eight critical success factors identified by the study: adaptability and flexibility, commitment and support, communication and co-operation, continuous learning and improvement, formal strategies, motivation and reward, pragmatism, and the right people.

However, there is insufficient conceptual discussion relating to its use and a lack of objective evidence for its validity. Pilot work was undertaken to explore the issues involved in validating a SEBC scale using objective monitoring of exercise behaviour, and subsequent discussion aims to inform future validity studies. Design: Estimates of of physical activity energy expenditure (kilocalories) were calculated for 20 participants, while minutes spent in moderate and vigorous activity were extrapolated from heart rate data in 23 participants. The SEBC scale was completed after a three-day objective monitoring period. Data were compared descriptively and using analysis of variance. Results: Inter-stage differences in objective measurements of energy expenditure and minutes of vigorous activity participation provided hierarchical confirmation of the SEBC scale.&#13;
Conclusions: Objectively monitored exercise partcipation supported previous work in its confirmation of the Stage of Change hierarchy. However, in order to build confidence in the tool, it will be necessary to explore minutes of exercise participation over a six-month period. This would enable comparison of objectively monitored activity levels against the threshold level of exercise described as the target behaviour. Suggestions are made as to how this could be carried out. A word of caution is provided in relation to current use of SEBC tools in measurement contexts.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/545/1/eResearch_545.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Institute of Health Promotion and Education</dc:publisher><dc:source>1463-5240</dc:source><dc:title>Stages of exercise behaviour change: a pilot study of measurement validity</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Bulley, Catherine</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Donaghy, Marie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Payne, A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Mutrie, N</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Fift-five female students were recruited to Trials One and Two (n=30; n=25).&#13;
Methods: The SPAQ was completed following a monitoring period. Heart rate (HR) data was collected for three days, following which the SPAQ was completed. HR data were converted to minutes spent in moderate and vigorous PA. This required the monitoring of HR during rest and three activities selected to reflect light, moderate and vigorous activity. Questionnaire modification was informed by data analysis and the responses of 16 Trial One participants who agreed to attend group interviews. In Trial Two the method was replicated using the modified SPAQ.&#13;
Results: The mean of three days of HR data were compared with the equivalent SPAQ data. Parametric statistical analysis was carried out on long-transformed data owing to skewed data distributions. In all but six cases the SPAQ estimate exceeded objective estimates of time in activity. with a median difference of 40.70 minutes, found to be statistically significant on t-test (95% CI: -1.39, 0.23) and poorly correlated (r=0.03). Limits of Agreement analysis demonstrated poor agreement between estimates. Following questionnaire modification the difference between median estimates of time in PA reduced to 10.60 minutes, no longer significantly different (95% CI: -0.75, 9.18E-02).The correlation improved to 0.59 and Limits of Agreement also improved.&#13;
Conclusions: Students undergo substantial lifestyle changes that may have a detrimental effect on their activity participation. As women are at particular risk, the measurement of PA in female students is important to allow epidemiological and interventional research. The SPAQ was found to require modification ofr use in this population. Alterations included reordering of questions and the provision of examples to aid the estimation of time spent in routine and intermittent activities. The modified SPAQ for students demonstrated reduced bias and improved agreement with an objective measure. It was therefore felt ot be appropriate for the measurement of PA in female students.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/546/1/eResearch_546.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Institute of Health Promotion and Education</dc:publisher><dc:source>1463-5240</dc:source><dc:title>Validation and modification of the Scottish Physical Activity Questionnaire for use in a female student population</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Bulley, Catherine</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Donaghy, Marie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Payne, A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/14635240.2005.10708052</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

This article aims to disseminate information about the expected standards of competence for sports physiotherapists and to illustrate their application.&#13;
&#13;
Context&#13;
Sports physiotherapy standards have been developed from the foundation of the competencies previously adopted by the International Federation of Sports Physiotherapy and provide specific and contextual descriptions of sports physiotherapy practice at a Master's level. These descriptions are important for professional recognition, for quality assurance mechanisms, and for the development of career pathways for sports physiotherapists. The development of competencies and standards has been carried out within the Sports Physiotherapy for All Project, funded by the European Union Leonardo-da-Vinci programme.&#13;
&#13;
Process&#13;
The development of sports physiotherapy standards is briefly outlined and this article uses examples of standards that focus on both therapeutic and professional processes to illustrate the application of standards to practice.&#13;
&#13;
Outcomes&#13;
As sports physiotherapists develop their ability to apply the competencies and standards to their own practice, they will be able to take greater ownership of their own career development. These behavioural descriptors enable the award of credit for prior learning through formal and informal learning, as well as facilitating informed decisions about the most appropriate future learning required to develop as a professional.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/548/1/eResearch_548.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>1466853X</dc:source><dc:title>Sports physiotherapy standards: A minimum threshold of performance</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Bulley, Catherine</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Donaghy, Marie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.ptsp.2005.07.003</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

This article introduces competencies for sports physiotherapists, developed to improve professional recognition, accountability and mobility across Europe and throughout the world.&#13;
&#13;
Context&#13;
The current political climate emphasises harmonisation of professional education and improvement of mobility in the European Union. This has prompted the development of competencies and standards in physiotherapy and its specialisations. The International Federation of Sports Physiotherapists, representing sports physiotherapists across the globe, acknowledged the need for greater clarity regarding their specialist professional behaviours, to enable greater public and professional recognition and to develop continuing professional learning. These growing priorities led to a European collaboration with input from internationally renowned experts to develop competencies for sports physiotherapists.&#13;
&#13;
Process&#13;
The description of professional behaviours is facilitated by the use of a framework that places the patient/client at the centre of the professional's roles and behaviours. International documentation was themed by the researcher, and the content confirmed by an expert panel; themes were grouped within the framework, to form the basis for competencies, which underwent a rigorous review and revision process.&#13;
&#13;
Outcomes&#13;
The competencies were adopted at the General Meeting of the International Federation of Sports Physiotherapy (2004). The next phase involves the development of standards and an audit toolkit.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/549/1/eResearch_549.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>1466853X</dc:source><dc:title>Sports physiotherapy competencies: the first step towards a common platform for specialist professional recognition</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Bulley, Catherine</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Donaghy, Marie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-05</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.ptsp.2005.02.002</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Whilst many examples exist of curricula being designed in ways to engage first year students, there are fewer published examples of active student participation in curriculum design processes. In the current higher education context where student engagement in learning is emphasised (Carini et al,&#13;
2006), this paper asks more generally whether students should be actively participating in curriculum design.&#13;
In order to answer this question, several elements of the project findings are explored: student views gathered in focus groups; staff views collected in workshops; and the case studies where students were actively involved in curriculum design. The data are examined for lessons that inform the debate about whether students should be participating in curriculum design, in first year and at other levels. Alongside these findings, relevant literature is critiqued in order to ascertain the desirability and feasibility of adopting curriculum design approaches that offer opportunities for active student participation.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/552/1/eResearch_552.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Liverpool Hope University</dc:publisher><dc:source>Pedagogical Research in Maximising Education</dc:source><dc:title>Should students participate in curriculum design?

A comparison of bilateral and unilateral upper-limb task training in early poststroke rehabilitation: a randomized controlled trial. Objective: To compare the effects of bilateral task training with unilateral task training on upper-limb outcomes in early poststroke rehabilitation. Design: A single-blinded randomized controlled trial, with outcome assessments at baseline, postintervention (6wk), and follow-up (18wk). Setting: Inpatient acute and rehabilitation hospitals. Participants: Patients were randomized to receive bilateral training (n=56) or unilateral training (n=50) at 2 to 4 weeks poststroke onset. Intervention: Supervised bilateral or unilateral training for 20 minutes on weekdays over 6 weeks using a standardized program. Main Outcome Measures: Upper-limb outcomes were assessed by Action Research Arm Test (ARAT), Rivermead Motor Assessment upper-limb scale, and Nine-Hole Peg Test (9HPT). Secondary measures included the Modified Barthel Index, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, and Nottingham Health Profile. All assessment was conducted by a blinded assessor. Results: No significant differences were found in short-term improvement (0-6wk) on any measure (P&gt;.05). For overall improvement (0-18wk), the only significant between-group difference was a change in the 9HPT (95% confidence interval [CI], 0.0-0.1; P=.05) and ARAT pinch section (95% CI, 0.3-5.6; P=.03), which was lower for the bilateral training group. Baseline severity significantly influenced improvement in all upper-limb outcomes (P&lt;.05), but this was irrespective of the treatment group. Conclusions: Bilateral training was no more effective than unilateral training, and in terms of overall improvement in dexterity, the bilateral training group improved significantly less. Intervention timing, task characteristics, dose, and intensity of training may have influenced the results and are therefore areas for future investigation. © 2008 American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine and the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/553/1/eResearch_553.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>00039993</dc:source><dc:title>A Comparison of Bilateral and Unilateral Upper-Limb Task Training in Early Poststroke Rehabilitation: A Randomized Controlled Trial</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Morris, J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>van Wijck, Frederike</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Joice, S</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ogston, S A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Cole, I</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>MacWalter, R S</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-07</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.apmr.2007.11.039</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

The accelerometer is currently the objective method of choice. In this review we address the advantages of objective measurement compared with more traditional subjective methods, notably the avoidance of bias, greater confidence in the amount of activity and sedentary behaviour measured, and improved ability to relate variation in physical activity and sedentary behaviour to variation in health outcomes. We also consider unresolved practical issues in paediatric accelerometry by critically reviewing the existing evidence and by providing new evidence.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/555/1/eResearch_555.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>00039888</dc:source><dc:title>Objective measurement of physical activity and sedentary behaviour: review with new data</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Reilly, J J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Penpraze, V</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Hislop, Jane</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Davies, G</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Grant, S</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Paton, J Y</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-07</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/adc.2007.133272</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

This paper aims to consider the use of language of diversity in an organizational context. Design/methodology/approach - Using discourse analysis, the paper examines data obtained from semi-structured interviews conducted with human resources managers and personnel managers. Participants' descriptions of diversity in relation to one particular group of (potential) employees, namely older jobseekers, are analysed for their function and effects in relation to organizational knowledge and practices. Findings - Diversity in employment provides organizational managers with a resource that can more usefully be viewed as linguistic than as knowledge based. Its use offers organizations a means of accounting for existing practices and should not be taken to signal commitment to organizational change. Originality/value - Work that has treated discourse of diversity as evidence of efforts to promote inclusion and competitiveness has failed to consider fully the effects of language use. A focus on language as action in its own right shows how diversity in employment as used accomplished outcomes that are totally divergent from the usually assumed benefits of diversity. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/557/1/557.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>09534814</dc:source><dc:title>Organizational knowledge and discourse of diversity in employment</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>McVittie, Chris</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>McKinlay, Andy</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Widdicombe, S</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1108/09534810810874822</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

This investigation in 300 first-degree relatives of 93 probands with SLI examined familial aggregation and genetic linkage of two measures thought to index these two traits, non-word repetition and tense marking. In particular, the involvement of chromosomes 16q and 19q was examined as previous studies found these two regions to be related to SLI. Results showed a strong association between relatives' and probands' scores on non-word repetition. In contrast, no association was found for tense marking when examined as a continuous measure. However, significant familial aggregation was found when tense marking was treated as a binary measure with a cut-off point of -1.5 SD, suggestive of the possibility that qualitative distinctions in the trait may be familial while quantitative variability may be more a consequence of non-familial factors. Linkage analyses supported previous findings of the SLI Consortium of linkage to chromosome 16q for phonological short-term memory and to chromosome 19q for expressive language. In addition, we report new findings that relate to the past tense phenotype. For the continuous measure, linkage was found on both chromosomes, but evidence was stronger on chromosome 19. For the binary measure, linkage was observed on chromosome 19 but not on chromosome 16. © 2007 The Authors.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://eresearch.qmu.ac.uk/559/1/1569.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>16011848</dc:source><dc:title>Genetic and phenotypic effects of phonological short-term memory and grammatical morphology in specific language impairment</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Falcaro, M.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Pickles, A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Newbury, DF</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Addis, L</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Banfield, E</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Fisher, SE</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Monaco, AP</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Simkin, Z</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Conti-Ramsden, G</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Newbury, DF</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Banfield, E</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Addis, L</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Cleak, JD</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Cardon, LR</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Merriden, MJ</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Goodyer, IM</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Simonoff, E</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Bolton, PF</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Slonims, V</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Baird, G</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Everitt, Andrea</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Hennessy, E</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Shaw, D</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Helms, PJ</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Kindley, AD</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Clark, Ann</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Watson, Jocelynne</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>O'Hare, Anne</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Seckl, J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Cowie, H</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Cohen, W</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Nasir, J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Bishop, DVM</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1601-183X.2007.00364.x</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>
