Occupational Health nursing and Hodges' model

In response to Pippa Crouch's enquiry posted here on New Year's Day I eventually sent some Q&A's to her (which I'll post here or through the site soon). Although Hodges' model seemed to fall in place for Pippa, there were some remaining questions about the HUMANISTIC - MECHANISTIC dimensions of the model in the OH context.

- at 7,000+ words I've some reading to do.

Pippa has obviously explored the website; as her study includes a basic grid for Hodges' model to illustrate a CARE PROBLEMS OUTLINE. This MS Word template is available through the website homepage - resources (which reminds me I must check/update these too!).
