An eighty-five-year-old widow has been in a long-term care facility for six months. She was admitted with severe osteoarthritic and osteoporotic pain. Her family initiated her placement because she was overmedicating herself at home, confusing her medications, and not eating adequately. She has been a “complainer” for years, the family reports.

* Case studies provide a roadmap for decision-making in future cases, help drive the development of new analysis and thought about complex medical and moral dilemmas, and are an effective way to bring bioethics alive for students, healthcare providers, administrators, attorneys and patients and families.
This open educational resource (OER) was developed to ensure best practice and quality care based on the latest evidence, and to address inconsistencies in how clinical health care skills are taught and practised in the clinical setting. The checklist approach, used in this textbook, aims to provide standardized processes for clinical skills and to help nursing schools and clinical practice partners keep procedural practice current. Each skill/procedure is covered in a chapter that has learning objectives, a brief overview of the relevant theory, checklists of steps for procedures with the rationale behind each step of the process, and a summary of key takeaways. Key terms are set in bold throughout the book and laid out again in a Glossary in the appendix. All 88 checklists are also summarized, and hyperlinked to the original checklist, in the appendix.
This ancillary resource is intended to be used by faculty in conjunction with Clinical Procedures for Safer Patient Care – Thompson Rivers University Edition. The chapters in this text intentionally coincide with chapters in Clinical Procedures for Safer Patient Care - Thompson Rivers University Edition to allow for easier cross referencing between the texts. This resource provides answers to the critical thinking questions that accompany each chapter of the aforementioned text. In some cases, learning activities and sample quiz questions are provided to support faculty in their teaching. More importantly they are meant to help learners develop their ability to critically think, to apply information in a variety of contexts and to achieve necessary learning outcomes toward being a safe competent nurse. The critical thinking questions, learning activities and sample quiz questions were developed with a BScN student in mind. Faculty can adapt the question(s) and / or expected answers based on the type of nursing program and level of student.

School of Nursing, Midwifery & Physiotherapy
The School operates from education centres across Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire providing pre-registration, post-registration, degree and higher degree courses. Learning in practice occurs in acute and community settings within local NHS Health Care Trusts and across the voluntary and social service sectors.
Research within the school focuses on supportive and palliative care; education and health informatics; mental health; and child and maternal health. The University received the best possible outcome in all categories within the Major Review of healthcare programmes which took place in 2006
Aimed at healthcare practitioners, this learning object describes why hand hygiene is so important in a healthcare setting, then uses video clips to demonstrate correct, and incorrect, hand washing techniques.
Introduces and examines the basic principles which guide growth and development and the health of individuals across the lifespan, from the prenatal period through senescence. Presents methodological, conceptual and substantive issues necessary for understanding and evaluating empirically based information about growth, development and health at different stages of life and from different academic perspectives. Course covers several themes, including contributions of biological and environmental factors to health and human development, measuring the health of individuals in communities, understanding determinants and consequences of health and development across the lifespan, measuring population health and assessing the implications of health disparities.
Health Case Studies is composed of eight separate health case studies. Each case study includes the patient narrative or story that models the best practice (at the time of publishing) in healthcare settings. Associated with each case is a set of specific learning objectives to support learning and facilitate educational strategies and evaluation.

Hodges’ Health Career (Care Domains) Model provides a conceptual framework upon which users can map problems, issues and solutions across four knowledge domains: Interpersonal; Sociological; Scientific; & Political (Autonomy). The public may also be taught to use the model, enabling engagement, understanding and concordance in planning and outcome evaluation.
Brian Hodges' original notes, a resources page and links (800+) are included. Additional material on health informatics and the potential role of visualization in care assessment and evaluation can also be found.
In April 2006 a blog related to Hodges' model was created: 'Welcome to the QUAD':
The blog includes a bibliography and a growing archive of posts that are also tagged. There are plans to create a new website using the content management system Drupal. There is an eclectic mix posts that includes examples of using the domains of the model.
