Emergence of highly antibiotic resistant 'Superbugs' and the implications of antibiotic resistance

Johal Gurniak
Many types of bacteria are now insensitive to antibiotics, the drugs which were designed to kill them; this insensitivity is known as antibiotic resistance (AR). Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) is responsible for widely distributing antibiotic resistance among bacteria. ‘Superbugs’, such as Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), are particularly evasive, with resistance to several different antibiotics. The expression of high levels of resistance in these bacteria is due to novel, non-standard, proteins, including Penicillin-Binding Protein 2a (PBP2a),...

From testing recollection and knowledge to authentically assessing understanding and application: a case study at Level 4

Phillip Andrews
Authentic assessment is increasingly prized in all tiers of education. In order to inform and facilitate the design of such an assessment strategy a number of authors propose criteria or models of design that the educator can apply to their particular programme. In a review of the Level 4 module ‘The Foundations of Radiographic Science’ the current assessment strategy was found to test recollection and knowledge, but not to meet the criteria for an authentic...

Re-designing preclinical neuropharmacology teaching to enhance student engagement and active learning

Margaux Horn
Group-based teaching can be an effective means of promoting active learning. As part of a medical degree, these sessions often focus on a clinical case. The students work collaboratively to build on previous knowledge and gain a deeper understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms causing disease. However, a student-led approach can lead to frustration (and consequently sacrifice engagement) if the sessions are not designed with enough guidance to enable students to “scaffold” their learning. This case...

Pluralising International Relations with the Global IR Agenda

Iona Clayton
How global is International Relations really? The discipline of International Relations (IR) has long been criticised for its Eurocentric foundations and perspectives. At the International Studies Association (ISA) Convention in 2014, the ISA President, Amitav Acharya, promoted the novel Global IR agenda. Constituted of six dimensions, the Agenda seeks to globalise the IR discipline. This article will first define International Relations, linking a broad definition to the root of Eurocentrism within the discipline. It provides...

International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis practice recommendations: Prescribing high-quality goal-directed peritoneal dialysis

The International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis last published a guideline on prescribing peritoneal dialysis (PD) in 2006. This focused on clearance of toxins and used a measure of waste product removal by dialysis using urea as an example. This guideline suggested that a specific quantity of small solute removal was needed to achieve dialysis ‘adequacy’. It is now generally accepted, however, that the well-being of the person on dialysis is related to many different factors...

Foundations for Computing: Applying Pedagogy to a Foundation Year Computer Science Module

Adam Wootton
Computers and Programming is a core module for Foundation Year students at Keele University intending to progress on to study Computer Science. This paper details a three-year reflection on how this module could be better delivered. After several areas for address were identified, it was found that changes to the structure, teaching activities and assessment of the module, in keeping with the principles of constructive alignment, led to significant improvement in student assessment performance. This...

PRELIM Main Survey (2017)

George Peat
These data were produced by the PRELIM project, funded by Arthritis Research UK/Versus Arthritis. The dataset comprises individual patient data, de-identified, from respondents to a cross-sectional survey of health and care undertaken in 11 general practices in 2017 and sampling two overlapping groups: (i) patients aged 35+ years who consulted for a selected common musculoskeletal condition in the previous 12 months, (ii) a random sample of the registered population (irrespective of consultation) aged 35+ years.

The Chemiluminescent imaging of blood on washed cotton and polyester fabrics

Duwaraga Manoharan
Luminol is a sensitive test used by forensic investigators to detect blood over a large area in crime scenes. When in contact with blood, luminol emits a bright blue light. This reaction, known as chemiluminescence, was utilised in this study to test luminol sensitivity on 60, 100% cotton and 60, 100% polyester swatches measuring 10cm by 10cm. All samples were washed once, twice or thrice with non-biological or biological laundry capsules, air-dried and subsequently sprayed...

Plagioclase and clinopyroxene mineral chemical and Sr isotope data from Unit 10, Rum Layered Suite, NW Scotland

Brian O'Driscoll, Luke Hepworth & Stephen Daly
These plagioclase and clinopyroxene mineral chemical and Sr isotope data come from Unit 10, Rum Layered Suite, NW Scotland. They underpin a publication entitled 'Rapid crystallisation of precious metal-mineralised layers in mafic magmatic systems', to be published in Nature Geoscience in 2020.

The Housing Response to New Refugee Flows in Amsterdam: a Governance Perspective

Sophie Colebourne
To-date, little research has been conducted regarding the governance of long-term housing solutions for refugees. As such, a critical gap remains within academia. This research aims to investigate the importance of housing governance for new refugees in the Netherlands, with a specific focus on the region of Amsterdam. With a pre-existing tight housing market, upon increased refugee flows from 2015, the city struggled to deal with the challenge of accommodating such numbers of newcomers. By...

The effect of sensory stimulation combined with mirror box therapy on fine dexterity of the hand: Mobilisation and Tactile Stimulation (MTS)

Victoria Andrews
Purpose: To look at the effect of Mobilisation and Tactile stimulation (MTS) combined with mirror box therapy on fine dexterity of the hand. There is a gap in the literature for the use of mirror therapy, the 9 Hole Peg Test (9HPT) and MTS combined with healthy participants to assess the effects on dexterity in the upper limb. Method: A before and after study allowed most transparency in answering the research question. Comparison of intervention...
