DEVELOPMENT NETWORKS - The Communication Initiative's Social Networking Space
Introduction and comments:
Development Media International (DMI) is conducting a 3-year randomised controlled trial to test the hypothesis that a radio campaign can reduce the large number of children dying before their fifth birthday in Burkina Faso. As detailed at the link below (see Related Summaries), the research involves the broadcast, beginning in March 2012, of health messages using radio spots (60-second adverts) and radio phone-in programmes. With the goal of engaging the public with health issues in order to change behaviours, this is a research initiative to evaluate a public health intervention delivered to 7 randomised geographic areas (clusters) across Burkina Faso with 7 additional clusters being used as controls.
- 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!!).
