- 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!!).

Papers, possible post-grad studies, conferences and a visit to Brian Hodges

This coming Monday and Wednesday I'm investigating post graduate study options with visits to Sheffield and Lancaster Universities.

Heading to Sheffield on Monday I'm also looking forward to catching up with Brian Hodges the creator of Hodges' model in the 1980s. It has been a long time since Brian and I met. I'll see if there is anything I can feedback here.

There is one conference abstract submitted for a presentation next year and another abstract almost completed. This for a workshop which I'm structuring such that it might also inform possible future studies. With these two abstracts for UK based events, I'm also looking at conferences abroad in the latter half of 2014 and 2015. So if anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

The paper on recovery in mental health and Hodges' model is not too far from a complete first draft. It runs to 5,000 words now. I had a great start with the help of two people. Twitter can be a great help in garnering assistance and with a quick response.

There is some feedback and contacts to follow up on the service-user research side (see references below). One research project to cite is True Colours an online self-management system. The advice over the past few weeks is also quite illuminating in evidencing Hodges' model. Another draft paper on case formulation, diagrams and h2cm is well advanced, but on hold at present.
