Abstract

The National Service Framework for Older People (DoH, 2001) is a ten‐year plan which aims radically to improve health services for older people. Central to the plan is the belief that older people should be involved as ‘genuine partners’ in the implementation process. In this article we describe how regional and local implementation teams in the North West of England are working in partnership to develop a coherent and sustainable strategy for engaging with older people.

Abstract

This article considers the potential for single assessment to overcome longstanding difficulties with care management, looks at initial progress in one SHA area and identifies some key priorities for the next stages of local implementation. We conclude that, not only is much more work required in localities, but additional national guidance and resources may also be required.

Abstract

This article describes efforts to develop a joint health and social services strategy for rehabilitation in one local authority area in response to national policy. It notes the effects of competing policy initiatives, of the shift in hospital provision to providing only acute care, and of failure to agree joint responsibility for the future development of such services.

Abstract

Successful people are self‐motivated people. If you want to be successful, you must enjoy what you do and empower yourself to do it exceptionally well. Your work, and your life, is what you make it. Successful people share many characteristics. They are constantly learning how to do their jobs better and take responsibility for their own training in order to do so. They empower themselves, are self‐motivated, and take control of their lives, rather than waiting for someone else to lead them down the path to success. The first step, is to set a goal, then develop a plan to achieve that goal. The plan should include what you need to know to do your job better and to make yourself more promotable. Then look for training programs that will help you develop the skills necessary to succeed and to reach that goal. Take advantage of company training programs, if possible, but also look outside the company, including colleges, universities and vocation‐technical schools, and home study courses.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the empirical body of knowledge regarding the role of universities today. In addition, it aims to investigate the topic of personal development planning (PDP) programs, under a different perspective borrowed from marketing theory, namely, the “self‐brand orientation” approach.

Design/methodology/approach

The study focused on investigating the core research topics and parameters perceived to be important to students. The theoretical perspectives of PDPs and brand orientation served as conceptual bases, and both have been operationalised through the empirical study conducted.

Findings

The study findings reveal a “gap” between today's student needs and what the universities offer. “self‐brand oriented” management, seems to support the development of PDPs in a promising way, since the majority of the students claim that they are willing to participate in such a program.

Research limitations/implications

Because of sample limitations, the findings of the study are not generally applicable. Besides, the topics of PDPs remain unknown to the particular students, since they never had the opportunity to participate in such a program in the past.

Practical implications

This paper can be seen as a guiding work to new means of delivery of PDPs. It contributes to the dialogue under progress regarding the role of the Universities today and the ways by which PDPs will increase their future possibilities.

Originality/value

The contribution of the paper is twofold: it meets students' needs as well as society's requests and allows marketing to make an ethical contribution to higher education.

Abstract

The system of government-run poor relief in England, dating from the sixteenth century, was not replicated in Europe until the mid- to late 1800s. In order to understand why, poor relief must be placed within the socio-economic framework of capitalism, a system of surplus appropriation which originated in the novel class relations of English agriculture. The English way of dealing with poverty was distinctive and this distinctiveness was rooted in the unparalleled expansion of capitalism in that country in the early modern era. Assistance to the poor in England emerged alongside a qualitative social change, wherein an economy rooted in custom was transformed into one based on the competitive social relations of capitalism. The main conclusion of this article is that the welfare state was not a product of industrialization but of the class structure of agrarian capitalism.
