Research priorities in suicide prevention: A qualitative study of stakeholders' views by Sara Niner( )

1 edition published in 2009 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The current study sought to inform priority setting in Australian suicide prevention research, by seeking stakeholders' views on where future priorities might lie. Three group interviews were conducted with a total of 28 participants. Group interview participants stressed that priority should be given to evaluating the efficacy of specific interventions and examining the response of the health and community service systems. They felt that the epidemiological profile of suicidal individuals had been explored, at least with respect to rates and individual-level risk factors, and that the above evaluative activities should focus on groups identified as having particularly high levels of risk. Most saw limited value in continuing to explore individual-level risk factors ad infinitum, and felt that the time had come to move on to considering wider societal influences on suicide and individual-level protective factors. Many felt that evaluation efforts should employ mixed methods, should be multidisciplinary and should be relevant to the Australian context. They also argued that there was scope for increasing the utility of research findings by communicating them in a manner that would enable them to be utilised by policy-makers, planners and practitioners. Several called for a more cohesive framework for suicide prevention that could guide suicide prevention research. The current study provides some guidance with respect to the direction Australia's suicide prevention research agenda should take. A priority-driven approach to suicide prevention research will ensure that the research endeavour provides the most useful information for those whose day-to-day work involves trying to prevent suicide

Our brother, Maun Bo't : the biography of Xanana Gusmão, leader of the East Timorese struggle by Sara Niner( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An ability to empathize and relate to all sides fostered a moderate and inclusive leadership. He believed the unity required to succeed could only be achieved by leading alone, above the factions, continually brokering political compromise: the man in the middle, often solitary, searching for allies, and soothing grievances and grief. However, this independent leadership style also fostered a habit of unilateral and undemocratic decision-making more fitting to a military commander during a time of war. Xanana has a past that could very well return to haunt him. People have sacrificed their lives so that he would survive as leader. He in turn has made bold and perilous decisions on their behalf, hard-hearted decisions, such as the one to continue with the 1999 referendum, which demanded such a huge loss of life
