BACKGROUND Little is known about effective treatment for personality-disordered (PD) offenders. We aimed to obtain the perspective of service users and staff on: (a) the experience of receiving treatment; and (b) the experience of delivering treatment, within new forensic services for PD offenders. MATERIAL Thematic analysis was applied to qualitative(More)
The synthesis of single-wall carbon nanotubes of desired diameters and chiralities is critical to the design of nanoscale electronic devices with desired properties. The existing methods are based on self-assembly, therefore lacking control over the diameters and chiralities. The present work reports a direct route for rolling graphene. Specifically, we(More)
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) affect millions of people each year. Research investigating repeated or serial damage in the form of lesions indicates that behavioral deficits are reduced in animals given sequential lesions separated by a sufficient period of recovery. In the lesion literature, this phenomenon is known as the serial lesion effect (SLE).(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o Conical carbon nanotubes (CCNTs) with unique structural characteristics arising from their tapered morphologies compared to uniform diameter carbon nanotubes, have been shown to exhibit enhanced field emission properties and support high current densities. Specifically, several CCNT arrays with different morphological characteristics(More)
PURPOSE The effectiveness of embryonic stem cell (eSC) therapy has been explored in many models of neurological disease and several research groups have shown that eSC treatment leads to improved outcomes in pre-clinical models of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Though functional recovery occurs, few surviving eSCs appear to develop neuronal characteristics;(More)
Personality-disordered offenders are difficult individuals to manage, and knowledge about effective treatment is sparse. In the UK, novel forensic psychiatric services were recently established for the treatment of offenders with personality disorder. In this paper we report the clinical and economic findings from a 2-year follow-up of a cohort of service(More)
This article describes how the University of Teesside School of Health and Social Care practice development team, in partnership with local professional colleagues and organizations, have addressed the issue of providing continuous quality evidence-based practice within the context of clinical governance. The newly devised Excellence in Practice(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o Thermionic emission properties of conical carbon nanotubes (CCNTs) grown on platinum wires and planar graphite foils were investigated. The work function (Φ) values extracted from the thermionic emission data range from 4.1 to 4.7 eV. The range of Φ values is attributed to the morphological characteristics, such as tip radius, aspect(More)
