    • Concept analysis as a dissertation methodology

      Baldwin, Moyra A.; Rose, Pat; University of Chester (Elsevier, 2009-05-10)
      This paper introduces the concept of the dissertation as an experiential method of learning about research. Undertaking a dissertation can be seen as proof of graduate-ness and the gold standard of undergraduate and postgraduate assessment. The skills demanded in research and concept analysis are compared. The requirements of demonstrating rigour and scholarship in dissertations, usually associated with traditional research methods, are shown to be present in concept analysis. There is a justification for concept analysis as a dissertation research method on the basis that the purpose of research is to expand a body of knowledge through a process of systematic and scientific enquiry. Institutions in which dissertation modules are studied have a responsibility to cultivate a research culture that encourages creativity. The dissertation is an opportunity for students to move away from the security associated with traditional methods of research: to engage with novel and sophisticated methods.

    • Dealing sensitively with sexuality in a palliative care context

      Woodhouse, Jan; Baldwin, Moyra A.; University of Chester (2008-01)
      Sexuality is integral to a person's identity and is encompassed in holistic palliative care. Current directives emphasize psychosocial support that is sensitive to a variety of issues, including sexuality, and offer community nurses the mandate to facilitate expressing sexuality. Nurses fail to address sexuality for a variety of reasons. Appreciating patients' individuality and avoiding making assumptions are some of the requirements to enabling expression of sexuality. Nurses need wisdom and determination to discuss such issues, and it is important that they recognize opportunities and cues as they arise. This article provides an examination of the issues surrounding sexuality outlining an approach that captures' constant attention to details. This guides the 'what', 'how' and 'why' sexuality in palliative care can be addressed. Ethics and safety aspects are briefly discussed and implications for practice suggested. Educating staff and focused education for the patient can positively influence sexuality and individuals' quality of life.
