Exploiting knowledge in health services( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book builds on the foundations of its predecessor, Managing Knowledge in Health Services (2000), to capture and explore the key developments that have arisen in the fast-moving healthcare sector, providing a snapshot of what health library and information professionals need to know now." "Individual chapters contributed by leading edge practitioners focus on issues of contemporary relevance. Written from a global perspective by a team of experienced health information professionals, it draws extensively on the published knowledge base." "This is a book for all health library and information service providers and students in the field. It is also of value to the increasing number of healthcare professionals, such as research and development co-ordinators and clinical effectiveness/governance facilitators, required to access health information as part of their working roles."--Jacket

Measurement of low level velocities for shallow bodies of water : project technical completion report by Jeffrey P Laible( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of a low cost, low velocity (0-15 cm/sec) current meter is described. Several low velocity current measurement techniques are also surveyed. The developed current meter uses a thermistor, operating in a low overheat quasi-constant current mode, as the flow sensor. Velocity is determined by measuring the thermistor bead temperature by measuring the time to charge a capacitor through the thermistor between two known voltage levels. The useable velocity range was found to be 0-5 cm/sec making the probe useful for near bottom sampling but not for open flow situations. The developed current meter is very low in cost, has a low power requirement and is suitable for remote operation

Acknowledging a 'dual heritage' for qualitative evidence synthesis : harnessing the qualitative research and systematic review research traditions by Andrew Booth( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Qualitative evidence synthesis, an umbrella term that includes all forms of secondary qualitative synthesis and analysis including qualitative systematic review, has emerged from the confluence of conventional systematic review methods with methods for primary qualitative research. With such a 'mixed heritage', and the juxtaposition of quite different epistemological positions, it is inevitable that the resultant tensions have generated considerable creative energy and significant methodological frictions. These tensions have created an environment within which I have sought to make a contribution. Working with colleagues within the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR), University of Sheffield, and collaborators at other institutions, including fellow co-convenors of the Cochrane Collaboration Qualitative Methods Group, I have examined the state of qualitative synthesis methods (Paper M1). I have traced and examined the respective contributions of the two components of the mixed heritage through five methodological papers that examine the stages of the systematic review process; searching (Paper M2), quality assessment (Paper M3), framework and thematic synthesis (Paper M4) and exploring heterogeneity (Paper M5) through to consideration of reporting standards (Papers M1-M3). This Thesis explores these issues through five case studies (Case Studies 1-5) to which I have contributed as lead methodologist. While, initially at least, the legacy of conventional systematic review methods could be seen to enjoy dominance, an emerging imperative to review systematically different types of evidence to explore different review questions, coupled with reduced time and resource envelopes within which to address time-critical questions from policy and practice, has opened up a more versatile and pragmatic toolkit. The Thesis concludes by identifying key methodological issues that require further investigation. I contend that many outstanding methodological challenges may derive their most productive insights from a more detailed consideration of corresponding solutions from primary qualitative research. The five papers in this body of work, therefore, make an original contribution to knowledge by establishing and demonstrating methodological principles by which flexible and context sensitive application of the versatile 'systematic review model' can be used to meet the pragmatic demands of health services research and technology assessment
