Reflections on contemporary medical professionalism; an exploration of medical practice as refracted in doctors’ narratives

Sharon Spooner
Background During a period of continuing changes in society and increasing availability of medical information, publication of patients’ views on experiences of health and illness have gained greater prominence. By contrast, studies of medical perspectives have tended to concentrate on reported discontent and implications for workforce planning while leaving broader insights and concerns under-investigated. Since the applied skills of highly trained and publicly funded clinicians are vital for safe and effective delivery of the nation’s...

Simultaneous Optical Coherence Tomography and Scheimpflug Imaging Using the Same Incident Light

Xiaoran Li
Medical imaging technologies can improve the diagnosis and clinical management of many ophthalmic diseases. Cross-sectional ophthalmic imaging devices are essential clinical tools for diagnosing and monitoring medical conditions that affect the anterior segment of the eye. Optical imaging technologies such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Scheimpflug imaging (SI) are well developed and widely used in the field of ophthalmology due to its non-invasive and non-contact characteristics. For any single anterior chamber cross-sectional (tomographic) imaging...

BULLYING IN SCHOOLS: A Measurement Validation Study in Brazilian Children and Longitudinal Prediction of Childhood Bullying Behaviour in the UK

Carolina Griz
Bullying is defined as intentional, power imbalanced and repetitive use of aggressive behaviours. Research shows bullying is a global issue, where roughly two in every ten pupils are directly involved in bullying. Furthermore, bullying involvement poses a high risk for developing emotional and psychological problems as well as educational problems. Though bullying studies date back to the 1970s, higher prevalence rates have progressively been reported despite international intervention polices being introduced. Although many previous studies...

Patterns of comorbidity and their impact on axial spondyloarthritis

Sizheng Zhao
Background and Aim: Axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) patients have higher risk of co-existing medical conditions – comorbidities – than the general population, yet management guidelines are largely based on randomised controlled trials that often exclude those with comorbidities. The overarching aim of this thesis was to describe the patterns of comorbidity and their impact on treatment using three real-world axSpA populations. Methods: Three datasets were used: one from a specialist axSpA service (Aintree cohort) and one...

The Thatcher Government and the Decline of the National Union of Mineworkers, c.1985-1990

Steven Daniels
In 1984, the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) was unquestionably the single most powerful trade union in the county and the ‘tip of the spear’ of the trade union movement, a position held comfortably since the Second World War. Within a decade, its once unquestionable power base was broken, the coal industry privatised, and the trade union movement within it deeply divided and marginalised. Today, the NUM is barely a shell of its former self,...

Instructors as Orchestrators: A Qualitative Case Study that Explores the role of Instructors in an Adaptive Learning Classroom Environment

Ziad Rafhi
This qualitative case study highlights the vital role of the instructor and the importance of learning analytics (LA) in an adaptive learning (AL) classroom environment. Existing research does not consistently support a particular outcome for the use of the AL platform, ALEKS, as an instructional approach. An examination of the AL landscape has been characterized by inconsistent and inconclusive results. The persistent emphasis on students’ attitudes and performance in relation to ALEKS, along with the...

The Role of Deubiquitinases in Invasive Migration and Epithelial Integrity in Drosophila

Hammed Badmos
Cell migration and epithelial maturation are central to normal development, whilst aberrant migration or loss of epithelial integrity are involved in a number of human diseases, including cancer and birth defects. We are studying these processes in the harmless fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, which has been intensively studied for century because of its many attractive features for genetic research. Importantly, Drosophila has proven to be a powerful system in which to identify novel molecules that...

MARILYNNE ROBINSON’S GILEAD SEQUENCE: LITERATURE AND THE TRANSLATION OF RELIGIOUS TRADITION

Esther Harsh
This thesis explores the precarious survival of religious tradition in the modern world through reinvention between generations. It concentrates on novels that deal with religious crisis and conflict, with particular reference to the work of Marilynne Robinson, an American novelist and essayist born 1943, working within the Christian tradition while still reaching a wide audience on both sides of the Atlantic. It argues that once the transmission of theology becomes problematic, it is in the...
