Disease relevance of Health Services Research

  • Our research interest has focused on how community nurses can assist people living with chronic conditions to live 'well'. In this paper we describe the way in which we have applied the principles of participatory action research (PAR) when working with women who live with multiple sclerosis (MS) and urinary incontinence [1].

High impact information on Health Services Research

  • An understanding of the molecular determinants of insulin-stimulated glucose transport has been one of the holy grails of hormone action research [3].
  • Secondary measure: Action Research Arm Test (ARA) [4].
  • This study describes the results from an early base line audit performed as the first stage in a larger action research project following the implementation of the Donor Liaison Scheme in an NHS trust [5].
  • The authors provide background on the PPS, home health care, and social work roles in home health care and propose policy and research action steps for the social work profession [6].
  • Guided by photovoice, a form of participatory action research that uses documentary photography and storytelling, this study examines how Black gay men and lesbians view themselves in relation to White gay men and lesbians in South Africa. Participants were from 4 South African townships and included 4 women, and 3 men [7].

Biological context of Health Services Research

  • A semianthropomorphic forearm cross-calibration phantom (EFP), developed during a concerted research action of the European Union's programme in Biomedical Engineering (COMAC-BME), was used to cross-calibrate the peripheral quantitative computer tomography (pQCT) devices at four German centers participating in the multicenter study [8].

Anatomical context of Health Services Research

  • Pretreatment and posttreatment measures were the upper-extremity scale of the Fugl-Meyer Assessment of Sensorimotor Impairment (Fugl-Meyer Scale), the Action Research Arm Test (ARA), and the Stroke Rehabilitation Assessment of Movement (STREAM) [9].

Associations of Health Services Research with chemical compounds


Gene context of Health Services Research

  • This article reports on the efforts within a master's level, accredited MFT training program to create space, through participatory action research, for the unique experiences of therapists of color and White therapists who are deeply committed to racial sensitivity [13].
  • This comprised a community based action research programme in a Zulu peri-rural community [14].
  • The data consist of the experiences and results of three phases of PAR relating to orthopaedic patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and the analysis of 20 articles on the ethics of action research [15].
  • This action research project developed and evaluated a teaching model that aimed to help RGN (registered general nurse) students to bridge the theory-practice gap [16].
  • Further advancement of EBP will require implementing a three-track program of research, including a much greater focus on action research and the involvement of consumers as research and evaluation partners [17].
