    • Research methodology for health and social care

      Research methodology for health and social care

      Health and social care professionals carry out a form of research whenever they observe, take measurements and refer to other professionals to gather and record information about the individuals in their care. They interpret the information and use it to assess the individual’s progress against the individual’s care plan. If necessary, the plan is changed and the effect of this is also monitored. This is regarded as informal research because it is part of routine health and social care practice and relates to the care of individuals. However, all new advances in health and social care are tested using a formal research process, which involves specific planning, collecting relevant information, interpreting it and publishing the results of the research. This unit investigates different functions of health and social care research and the principles that underpin it. You will explore ethical and legal issues relating to health and social care research and different techniques that may be used to gather research data. You will plan a small-scale research project on a topic relating to health and social care, subject to consent from your centre and the assessment requirements of the unit. The plan will include a justification of your choice of methods to gather new information in the context of existing knowledge of the subject gathered from a literature review. You will carry out the research and produce a report in which you present your results, interpret them and evaluate the research methodology you used in the project.

      Equality, diversity and rights in health and social care

      This unit introduces you to equality, diversity and rights in the health and social care sector. You need to be aware of these issues because you will be faced with them on a daily basis. This is one of the most important units on the course and it is essential that you understand the regulations regarding equality, diversity and rights. You need to know how to help a person who is being victimised and how to help the person inflicting such discrimination so they do not do it again. By doing this, you will ensure that you and others deliver a respectful and dignified service to everybody using and working in health and social care. You have a huge responsibility to yourself and others to ensure that this happens. It is also very important to be aware of your own thoughts and prejudices. (Yes, everybody has them!) This will enable you to understand your own thought processes in a mature way, and not let them get in the way of your day-to-day tasks. It will also make you aware of your own rights and help to ensure that no one discriminates against you, which is also extremely important.

    • Water and Human Health

      Water and Human Health

      The global water cycle, the route by which most water enters the atmosphere is evaporation from the sea. Much smaller amounts of water enter the atmosphere from the land and from rivers and lakes. Some of the water that falls on the land runs into streams and then into lakes, rivers and the sea; some of it evaporates back into the atmosphere and a lot of it percolates deep into the ground, where it becomes groundwater. An important component of the water cycle, is human intervention in the form of sanitation systems. Water-borne human waste is collected in sewers, treated in sewage plants and returned, as cleaner water, to the water cycle, into rivers or the sea. Toxic substances are a feature of the natural world, many plants contain chemical compounds that make them anything from mildly distasteful to lethally poisonous to animals that might eat them. Some animals are equipped to deal with dangerous plants in their environment and possess detoxification mechanisms that break down harmful compounds. Mercury is a naturally occurring metal which, in its pure form, is not particularly toxic. Mercury compounds have no effect on plants, but adverse effects have been demonstrated in a wide range of animals, including fish and amphibians. The most serious health consequences for humans from nitrogen pollution may well arise indirectly through its effects on the environment. Water is also a resource that is undergoing a major crisis; its capacity to support plant and animal life is rapidly being destroyed by human activities.

      Postdigital or 4.0? Conceptualising education in the 21st century

      In this short course, we are going to explore two emergent and contrasting concepts which are beginning to feature more prominently in discussions around education and digital technology: postdigital education and Education 4.0. In the process of doing so, the course aims to demonstrate the value of adopting a holistic approach towards the analysis and critique of educational technologies and imaginaries, which encompasses not only technological but also socio-cultural and political perspectives.In Part 1, we will consider the connotations of the terms postdigital education and Education 4.0 and reflect on the importance of the terminology we use to frame our conceptions and discussions of education, technology and the relationship between them. In Parts 2 and 3, we will attempt to unpack the postdigital and consider how it might be applied to education. In Part 4, we will learn more about the emergence and characteristics of the Education 4.0 imaginary. In Part 5, we will adopt a more critical stance towards Education 4.0, devoting particular attention to two of its core technologies - virtual reality and learning analytics - in order to identify its potential strengths, limitations and ideological foundations.Now let's get started!
