Resuscitating poor quality research

Description

Healthcare research is all too often plagued by biases that are rooted in poor methods, leading to the wrong result and conclusions and preventing uptake into practice. We need a better understanding of what constitutes rigorous research; what are the different types of research that underpin decision making that matters to patients and how we should go about fixing the problems of poor quality research. There are major structural problems with the current production and use of evidence that needs resuscitating. If left unaddressed, these inherent problems may become entrenched and unsolvable.

DG6E34 Work Role Effectiveness : Diagnostic Imaging

Description

The Work Role Effectiveness Unit is designed to assess whether a candidate is effective in a work role. Work roles need to be matched against those broadly defined by National Occupational Standards either at SVQ level 3 or SVQ level 4. Candidates should also be executing these roles at levels of autonomy described at SCQF level 7 or SCQF level 8. So, those in work roles matched broadly to SVQ level 3 should be demonstrating autonomous working as described at SCQF level 7 and those work roles matched broadly to SVQ level 4 should be demonstrating autonomous working as described at SCQF level 8. The work role should be mapped against SVQ Unit titles and summaries — an example is given at the end of the Unit specification.

An introduction to social work in Wales An introduction to social work in Wales

Description

Respecting the individuality of each person is a central value of social work but, as the term suggests, social work is not only about individual perspectives: it also takes place in a social context. Society, demography, geography, national legislation, national policy, and language all play an important part, both in the lives of service users and carers and in the practice of social work practitioners. This free course, An introduction to social work in Wales, will introduce you to the importance of recognising that social work practice happens in context. In particular, you will learn about what this means for social work in Wales in the Welsh context. First published on Fri, 12 Feb 2016 as An introduction to social work in Wales.

Lennox Castle Hospital Lennox Castle Hospital

Description

This free course, Lennox Castle Hospital, looks at the history of institutions in the twentieth century, starting with a case study of Lennox Castle Hospital. It tries to make sense of the history of Lennox Castle, and of institutional life in general, through testimony of those who experienced institutions as inmates and as nurses, as well as through Erving Goffman's model of the 'total institution'. It examines the social bases of segregation, the professionalisation of staff in asylums and institutions, and campaigns for change in the treatment of those segregated from society in institutions. First published on Fri, 26 Feb 2016 as Lennox Castle Hospital. To find out more visit The Open University's Openlearn website.
