- provides a space devoted to the conceptual framework known as Hodges' model. Read about this tool that can help integrate 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 (it might happen one day!!).

IT keeps you running... WORLDCOMP'08

May 2008 will see ten years of actively championing Hodges' model on the web. Throughout that time I've regularly been encouraged by those who see the value of the website and merit in the potential of this global health and educational model.

A couple of years ago I was approached by H. R. Arabnia, PhD, Professor, Computer Science about a link to the WORLDCOMP series of conferences. Certainly!

When Prof. Arabnia then made the offer to add Hodges' model as an 'Other Co-sponsor' - well you can imagine how it feels to this day seeing the h2cm logo on their homepage. That listing provides some real presence and regular hits. The range of informatics disciplines represented is amazing - as you can see:
