Editorial: Exploring the relationship of threshold concepts and Hodges’ model of care from the individual to populations and global health



At the end of July I was contacted by the editor of the journal Revista CUIDARTE published by Programa de Enfermería de la Universidad de Santander UDES and invited to write an editorial. There were publication guidelines and a deadline: two weeks. Despite my astronautic aspirations my feet remained on the ground as I realised that I am surely filling a gap.

There were other family pressures at the time, but I already had the draft paper on Hodges' model and threshold concepts. After some thought and work the draft was reduced from 5600 words and 56 references to 3600 and 20 references. The example of Deprivation of Liberty was removed to include more generic subject matter in the themes of global health and development.

Whatever the reason (and editors please note...) I greatly appreciate this opportunity to further disseminate Hodges' model and threshold concepts. Greater still is the privilege to contribute to a community who provided me with one of the highlights of my nursing career in 2011.
