This trial compared two approaches used to introduce parenting skills in a residential staff training program. Fifty staff were randomly assigned to: mastery modelling in which videotaped models demonstrated new skills, coping modelling problem solving (CMPS) in which participants formulated their own solutions to the errors depicted by videotaped models,(More)
3D microscopy visualization has the potential of playing a significant role in the study of 3D cellular structures in biomedical research. Such potential, however, has not been fully realized due to the difficulties of current visualization methods in coping with the unique nature of microscopy image volumes, such as low image contrast, noise and unknown(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe, for the first time, distribution (by geography, age, sex) and time trends in burn injury in England and Wales over the period that the international Burn Injury Database (iBID) has been in place. SETTING Data from the iBID for the years 2003-2011 were used for a retrospective descriptive observational study of specialised services(More)
UNLABELLED Some burn wounds take longer to heal than others, but this cannot be fully explained by physical factors such as burn size and depth. Research interest has therefore focussed on the potential contribution of psychological factors, such as perception of the burn and distress, to the wound healing process. OBJECTIVES Using the framework of(More)
Self-control of swallowing and positive reinforcement were used to eliminate drooling of a non-vocal 16-year-old with severe spastic quadriplegia. Prompts for self-controlled swallowing appeared to be more effective than positive reinforcement. The effects of treatment were maintained at three-month follow-up, but not at six months. Drooling was eliminated(More)
BACKGROUND Patient outcomes in specialist burns units have been used as a metric of care needs and quality. Besides patient factors there are service factors that might influence Length of Stay (LOS) and mortality, e.g. pressure on beds. Although the bed needs of UK hospitals have dropped significantly over the past three decades, with changes in policies(More)
BACKGROUND The UK has one of the highest rates for deaths from fire and flames in children aged 0-14 years compared to other high income countries. Evidence shows that smoke alarms can reduce the risk of fire-related injury but little exists on their cost-effectiveness. We aimed to compare the cost effectiveness of different interventions for the uptake of(More)
