  • Health Professionals and Trust: The Cure for Healthcare Law and Policy

    Henaghan, Mark (2012)

    Book
    University of Otago

    An ever increasing number of codes of conduct, disciplinary bodies, ethics committees and bureaucratic policies now prescribe how health professionals and health researchers relate to their patients. In this book, Mark Henaghan argues that the result of this trend towards heightened regulation has been to diminish reliance upon their professional judgment, whilst simultaneously failing to trust patients to make decisions about their own care. This book examines the issue of health professionals and trust comparatively in a number of countries including the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. The book draws upon historical analysis of legislation, case law, disciplinary proceedings reports, articles in medical and law journals and protocols produced by management teams in hospitals, to illustrate the ways in which there has been a discernible shift away from trust in healthcare professionals. Henaghan argues that this erosion of trust has the potential to dehumanise the unique relationship that has traditionally existed between healthcare professionals and their patients, thereby running the risk of turning healthcare into a mechanistic enterprise controlled by ‘management processes’ rather than a humanistic relationship governed by trust and judgment. This book is an invaluable resource for students and scholars of medical law and medical sociology, public policy-makers and a range of associated professionals, from health-service managers to medical science and clinical researchers.

  • Anti-consumption and society: Proceedings of ICAR 2012 Brisbane

    Lee, Michael; Cherrier, H; Rundle-Thiele, S (2012)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Griffith Business School is committed to research that develops and promotes social, financial and environmental approaches that lead to sustainable businesses and communities. In Volume 2, Issue 3 of the Journal of Social Marketing, Gerard Hastings asks “When a supermarket chain attains such dominance that it covers every corner of a country the size of the UK, threatens farmers’ livelihoods with its procurement practices, undercuts local shops and bullies planners into submission, it becomes reasonable to ask: does every little bit really help? Once the 100 billionth burger has been flipped and yet another trouser button popped it is sensible to wonder: are we still lovin’ it? As the planet heats up in response to our ever increasing and utterly unsustainable levels of consumption, it is fair to question: are we really worth it?” (Hastings, 2012). Ongoing attention needs to be directed by the research community to understand the impact that our consumption behaviour has on ourselves, our loved ones, our society, and our planet. Research attention that challenges society to question its own practices is central in assisting us to understand how we can build sustainable communities. The International Centre for Anti-consumption Research (ICAR) 2012 symposium encourages us to question whether our aim to live independently is ideal. A child’s desire to leave home may promote economic growth, but does little to keep loved ones and communities closely connected. Sustainable business practice models are needed if we are to step away from the economic growth model that underpins business today. Sharing rather than consuming may be one mechanism that business can use to reengineer business practice. Research presented at ICAR 2012 suggests that to achieve sustainable business and communities we need to understand the opposition and resistance, including boycotts that have emerged against business. This understanding is rapidly evolving in an Internet- dominated era where social media landscapes are mushrooming. To develop a more social approach that leads to sustainable business and consumption, researchers must understand that anti-consumption is not an exact opposite of consumption. A range of behaviours and their underlying motives remain under-researched, and avenues to broaden our focus are showcased at ICAR 2012. Sustainability requires that individuals and communities engage in a diverse range of behaviours including decreasing resource use (water, energy, and materials). A practical stance is introduced at ICAR 2012 with empirical evidence highlighting how community-based social marketing is being used throughout the world to foster sustainable behaviour change.

  • Case Method and Case-database Construction in Teacher Education of TCSOL 国际汉语师资教育中的案例教学及案例库构建研究

    Zhaxi, Yang (2012)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    With “TCSOL case-database construction” as a penetrating access, this paper conducts a systematic research on the value of applying Case Method to faculty training, and on the construction of its supporting system from the perspective of Chinese language’s globalization. This paper unfolds its contents by a logical sequence of thinking in cases’ cognition, application and development. Firstly, a diachronic study is made on the development of Case Method and its distinguishing features in different developmental phases, which are used as references to define the concept of TCSOL cases and classify it from different angles. Secondly, aiming at current situation of teacher shortage in promoting Chinese language internationally, an analysis of the occupational characteristics and development of TCSOL teachers has been made along with the discussion over the value, pattern and practical procedures in applying Case Method to the professional training of TCSOL teachers. Finally, a framework for the construction of TCSOL case-database is proposed following the principle of “joint construction with shared resources”. This paper outlines the database to be digitalized, multi-dimensional, localized, public and dynamic, and leading to effective integration of case resources and solid support to the utilization of Case Method. Personally, the author thinks it is feasible to construct TCSOL case-database in line with “one central task, two basic points”, i.e. TCSOL as the central task, facilitating faculty’s education, joint works and sharing resources, dynamic perfecting. It is a creative way of thinking not only to meet future demand for Chinese teacher’s education, but also to base its development upon current situation.

  • Collaborating to Meet Language Challenges in Indigenous Mathematics Classrooms

    Meaney, Tamsin; Trinick, Tony; Fairhall, Uenuku (2012)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Language can be simultaneously both a support and a hindrance to students’ learning of mathematics. When students have sufficient fluency in the mathematics register so that they can discuss their ideas, they become chiefs who are able to think mathematically. However, learning the mathematics register of an Indigenous language is not a simple exercise and involves many challenges not only for students, but also for their teachers and the wider community. Collaborating to Meet Language Challenges in Indigenous Mathematics Classrooms identifies some of the challenges—political, mathematical, community based, and pedagogical— to the mathematics register, faced by an Indigenous school, in this case a Mäori immersion school. It also details the solutions created by the collaboration of teachers, researchers and community members.
