Hodges' Model: Welcome to the QUAD

- provides a space devoted to the conceptual framework known as Hodges' model. Read about this resource for HEALTH, SOCIAL CARE, INFORMATICS and EDUCATION. The model can facilitate PERSON-CENTREDNESS, CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT, HOLISTIC CARE and REFLECTION. Follow the development of a new website using Drupal as I finalise my research question with part 2 starting in 2016. See our bibliography, posts since 2006 and please get in touch [@h2cm]. Welcome.

"Index Case": Do we need a new form..? ( cas index, Indexfall, caso índice, 指數情況, الحالة الدالة, सूचकांक के मामले ... )

index case
nounMEDICINE
noun: index case; plural noun: index cases
  1. the first identified case in a group of related cases of a particular communicable or heritable disease.

Source: Google (and translations)

Hodges' model can map the first identified case of any disease, but just as medicine can turn a crisis around - we need a new form of 'index case'.

In healthcare we spend a lot of time managing 'caseness' and for a population casenesses. While triage is concerned quite rightly with prioritization, safety, efficiency, it also seeks to deny people caseness through gate-keeping. Alternately, for those diagnosed and meeting criteria, services then seek to assess when they are better - on the other side...

A new index case is required to respond to demographic, socioeconomic and environmental pressures. Talk, action and outcomes must be about well-being, sustainable health, strengths, health literacy self-care and recovery.

Hodges' model can facilitate this change in care philosophy, perspective and the concurrent focus of disease AND health.

Consider:

For how long how we espoused person-centered care?

Health is where the person resides*.

So often disease fragments identity, memory, the person, relationships, even the whole community...

Disease is a matter for our humanity.

Hodges' model can be the index case for a person's health and well-being and how they maintain, maximize this status. This might even help us define person-centeredness. A care indices.

Being person-centered should be a index-phenomena that takes cognizance of history where this is available.
This should - must be the index case?

Global Challenges: Journal

A New Kind of Journal Creating
a Global Community with a Global Mission

From the website: "Global Challenges cuts across disciplines and international boundaries to bring science, technology, and social science communities together to tackle the 21st century’s greatest challenges: climate change, energy, food, agriculture & nutrition, global health, and water."

Global Health

"We live in an increasingly interdependent world where health and well-being are shaped by circumstances, decisions and events occurring in far-away places. Pandemics spread between countries within days, health professionals emigrate from countries where they trained, lifestyles shift from one place to another, food supply lines are globally integrated, and environmental health risks like climate change defy national borders. Extreme poverty and inequality remain at unacceptably high levels, thereby representing major threats to global health as well as direct consequences of ill-health. Today, the risks and potential rewards of globalization for health are great, but managing these risks and reaping these rewards depends on the effective management of globalization by the world’s governments, civil society organizations, businesses and international institutions. The health section of Global Challenges aims to be recognized as a leading source of empirical studies, evidence syntheses and critical analyses that address transnational health threats and social inequalities requiring global collective action. Submissions that use interdisciplinary, mixed-method and/or new approaches are especially welcome."




Wiley asks: "Will you be part of it?"

This is project were Hodges' model is very relevant and at some future point I'll map this new journal's themes to the model. It is Open Access which means that the business model then employed involves fees for publication. I note that Lancaster University is included in the list of institutions with a Wiley Open Access Account so this may help. The fee is also waived for the first 15 submissions that are accepted.

HAPPY 10th BIRTHDAY "Welcome to the QUAD"

This evening #W2tQ is 10 years old.

In Internet terms this is well passed retirement. And yet... HTML and the http protocol still provides the substrate, the template, foundation for the content here and this is what Hodges' model can provide across healthcare, education and the many literacies that have been highlighted here.

It remains a fascinating journey on all levels. Here are several archived way-points:

  • Presenting the model in Charleston, South Carolina; Paipa, Colombia presentation & workshop.
  • Attending a workshop on Conceptual Spaces in Lund, Sweden.
  • Presenting in Amman, Jordan.
  • A poster at the first conference on Health Literacy in Manchester.
Plus, many others and exhibitions I've been able to enjoy.

The journey - the community
I found 2010 that I had cataract and needed surgery. At Wigan RAEI Surgeons Messrs. Heavan (left-eye) and Mars (right) allowed me to see the stars again. It is still a real thrill: the light, colour, texture... thank you again #RAEI.

In February 2007 at version 4.7 I found Drupal and a fantastic community. There's a new home to build and share through Drupal 8.

Last summer the isp Demon.co.uk finally folded. So the old website is now merely an internet archive. This blog birthday is another call for action...

Now through part 1 of a PhD at Lancaster I may need a break to do some prep for part 2 and ensure I can focus ;-) purely on the research. I've dusted two draft papers off to see if I can complete them quickly. If support for the mantra 'enjoy the journey' is needed you will find it here...

Pigeonholes and a Matrix 4 Care


The structure of Hodges' model is 
not an invitation to pigeonhole. 
It is an equation: a matrix for care. 
What is done in one quadrant, 
needs to be counter-balanced 
in the other care domains. 
The operations here are not mathematical,
 but reflective, reflexive and ideally communicative.

Book: Skills for Communicating with Patients

Skills for Communicating with Patients


Part 1 of my studies at Lancaster has been a busy two years. Picking up this book which I used in one research paper, the delivery note was a surprise. The book arrived c/o Radcliffe Health in April 2014. Since then Radcliffe is no more, but the title is available through CRC Press.

An established text given a 3rd edition it is accessible, thorough and well organised. The content presents the Calgary - Cambridge Guides as described on the back cover (PB).

Initiating the session. Gathering information. 
Providing structure to the interview. Building the relationship. Explanation and planning. Closing the session.

(As a non-medic) what I like about this CPD certified book is the clear path through the chapters that explain the Calgary - Cambridge Guides. Other models, frameworks and approaches are described. The Calgary - Cambridge Guides is process-centric as is evident in 'gathering information', but the complexity that arises in achieving competence is included and fully referenced (pp. 263-293) throughout the book. Framing questions in open and closed form is covered, with example dialogue between patient and doctor on many practical points. Person-centredness, uncertainty, motivational interviewing, mental health - psychosis, risk (suicide) are also explained. While person-centredness is not the main focus, 'patient' ... is very well served in the index. There is much here about shared understandings and planning and how to make suggestions and raise options rather directives (concordance, p.193). Although it might be viewed as 'cold', I liked the emphasis on information and inclusion of health literacy.

In a very brief break from my proposal I've brushed off two draft papers I've mentioned before on W2tQ at some point. They relate Hodges' model respectively to:
  • threshold concepts 5,000 words 
  • case formulation 4,000 words
Calgary - Cambridge Guides
In a way the Calgary - Cambridge Guides is a means to a formulation, but a formulation that is consultation (appointment, session) specific. Perhaps in future we will see developments that are more integrative and consider continuity as a vital part of this critical activity. This is the challenge in communication getting the scalability of communication and communication skills right. Clearly beyond the scope of this book but how much of that communication gets passed-along (communicated!)?

This is however a very complete, readable and informative read. Without expanding the book further: but more on technology-mediated communication (beyond computers in the consultation) must be essential in a 4th edition? I am biased but in dusting off the above papers, more on the challenges within mental health, especially self-harm, body-image, mental capacity, and forensic might highlight troublesome (threshold) concepts. Understandably, the disease-illness model is highlighted (p.65). Living well through self-care, living with chronicity, strengths and recovery perspectives may also deserve mention? Working towards a 'meeting of experts' (p.184) helpfully begins to address such developments. With my project in mind I also looked for 'evaluation'. If "research" had its own place in the index - what would the content be?

It proved helpful having a break from the draft papers I wished I'd picked this text up sooner and that I can look at my research proposal similarly refreshed...

LEARNING IN VIRTUAL WORLDS: RESEARCH AND APPLICATIONS

Edited by:
Sue Gregory, University of New England, Australia,
Mark J.W. Lee, Charles Sturt University, Australia,
Barney Dalgarno, Charles Sturt University, Australia, and
Belinda Tynan, The Open University, UK

With a Foreword by Chris Dede, Harvard University, USA

Free PDF download available at: http://www.aupress.ca/index.php/books/120254
Also available for purchase in Paperback and ePub formats

*** Description ***

Three-dimensional (3D) immersive virtual worlds have been touted as being capable of facilitating highly interactive, engaging, multimodal learning experiences. Much of the evidence gathered to support these claims has been anecdotal but the potential that these environments hold to solve traditional problems in online and technology-mediated education—primarily learner isolation and student disengagement—has resulted in considerable investments in virtual world platforms like Second Life, OpenSimulator, and Open Wonderland by both professors and institutions. To justify this ongoing and sustained investment, institutions and proponents of simulated learning environments must assemble a robust body of evidence that illustrates the most effective use of this powerful learning tool.

In this authoritative collection, a team of international experts outline the emerging trends and developments in the use of 3D virtual worlds for teaching and learning. They explore aspects of learner interaction with virtual worlds, such as user wayfinding in Second Life, communication modes and perceived presence, and accessibility issues for elderly or disabled learners. They also examine advanced technologies that hold potential for the enhancement of learner immersion and discuss best practices in the design and implementation of virtual world-based learning interventions and tasks. By evaluating and documenting different methods, approaches, and strategies, the contributors to Learning in Virtual Worlds offer important information and insight to both scholars and practitioners in the field.

Planetary Health (ii) (and the need for a global conceptual framework)

I have 5,000 words drafted on Hodges' model and threshold concepts, for which I've yet to find a home. Staying with the previous post's theme of planetary health the paper includes the following: 

A decade ago Groffman, et al., (2006) stated that ecological thresholds can be 'troublesome' in being important but in having no practical application. Threshold concepts are not, however alone; there are also threshold questions (Halldén and Lundholm, 2009). The answers to these questions are critical to global sustainability and planetary boundaries (thresholds) - an ongoing research effort (Rockström et al., 2009).

Planetary Health (i) (and the need for a global conceptual framework)

(with thanks to Global Health Now)

In a pointed challenge, Lancet editor-in-chief Richard Horton warned Consortium of Universities for Global Health conference attendees Saturday that an exclusive focus on improving health will fail.

Horton argued instead for planetary health.

“We have to cross outside of health and think about the relationship between health and other dimensions being defined as sustainability,”
Horton said, in a keynote address at the annual CUGH conference, which opened Saturday in San Francisco and attracted more than 1,800 attendees from around the world.

Citing the work of a Lancet Commission that published a 2014 manifesto, Horton argued that the global health community and others need to embrace planetary health. “Our vision is for a planet that nourishes and sustains the diversity of life with which we coexist and on which we depend,” Horton and others wrote in the manifesto.

thresholds - a new digital journal

There is a new digital journal in prospect this summer - thresholds:

"To read and to write is to become entangled; to allow oneself to be snagged upon or enmeshed amidst a profusion of other texts and ideas. Born of these twin entanglements, criticism is necessarily an act of collaboration between an author and a churning mass of other things.

thresholds is a new digital journal co-edited by Fran McDonald and Whitney Trettien, in collaboration with technical developer Anthony Olawo. Expected to debut Summer 2016, the journal's platform bears witness to the dynamic processes that constitute reading and writing by way of a split-screen digital architecture."
