Abstract

Acute inpatient ward staff work with service users who have comorbid mental health and substance misuse problems (dual diagnosis) on a daily basis. Department of Health (DH) guidance for working with this group (DH, 2002; DH, 2006) indicates that training is needed to equip staff with the confidence and skills for this work. This paper describes how the COMPASS Programme, Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust's (BSMHT) dual diagnosis service, developed, delivered and evaluated a training programme designed to support inpatient staff in this work.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to understand the role of management ideas as a resource for developing a new understanding of science and society.

Design/methodology/approach

Three important articles of Polanyi are studied in detail.

Findings

That writings of Graicunas, Foch and Liddell Hart definitely influenced the development of Polanyi’s thinking and writings of Gulick, Mooney among other management/organization theorists also likely contributed to Polanyi’s thought.

Research limitations/implications

The study opens a new seam for Polanyi intellectual – historical scholarship.

Practical implications

The article sheds light on facets of scientific life, including how scientists themselves participate in the overall management of science.

Social implications

This discussion of Polanyi deepens the appreciation of Liberal society’s functioning.

Originality/value

No other Polanyi scholar has dug deeply into the history of management, considering its intellectual value to Polanyi.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to periodize the history of the US senior market segment, a large, lucrative target market.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper uses a four‐step adaptation of an existing framework, periodizing the segment's history into three phases: independence phase, mid‐nineteenth century‐1935; growing affluence phase, 1935‐1965; and maturity phase, 1965 to present.

Findings

The senior market began with urbanization resulting from the industrial revolution. The growth of private pensions, two World Wars, a variety of governmental programs such as the GI Bill and Social Security and Medicare Acts, political power resulting from the establishment of groups such as the American Association of Retired Persons, and increasing stress on inclusiveness in marketing accelerated the growth of the market. As baby boomers age, the market is sure to grow in scope and market power.

Research limitations/implications

Time and space limitations require that this paper focus on the senior market only in the USA, and analyze only broad activities, events, and trends.

Originality/value

This paper contributes to the study of marketing history and market segmentation in particular by analyzing the origins and growth of this very large and unique market segment – largely due to the fact that it currently represents about 12 percent of the US population, unique in that all Americans are or likely will be members. It illustrates the confluence of government policy, marketers' never‐ending drive to find new target markets via product differentiation, and the importance of demographic change.

Abstract

Purpose

Examining the education and training needs of forensic nurses is paramount as services move from the older institutions to new care settings. The purpose of this study was to identify Irish Forensic nurses perceived deficits in their knowledge and skills to assist them to provide effective seamless care for individuals with an intellectual disability within their forensic mental health service, so that appropriate training could be provided.

Design/methodology/approach

Training needs analysis (TNA) procedures are used as a way of establishing the continuing processional development of staff, as they seek to identify the gaps between the knowledge and skills of an individual and the need for further training. A training needs tool developed by Hicks and Hennessy (2011) was used and completed by nurses working in an Irish forensic mental health service. A total of 140 surveys were circulated and 74 were completed (51 per cent response).

Findings

The top priority training needs identified were for additional training in research and audit and in the use of technology. Other self-identified training needs included additional training in behavioural management for challenging behaviour, understanding mental health and intellectual disability and dual diagnosis, training in enhancing communication skills and how to work with patients who have an intellectual disability patients specific training on autistic spectrum disorders and a guide and template for advance individual care planning and for caring for the physical health needs and promoting the physical health needs of these patients.

Originality/value

Despite there being a vast range of training issues identified, the majority of nurses appear to have a clear idea of their training needs to ensure the provision of seamless care for individuals with an intellectual disability within a forensic mental health setting. This TNA has identified the specific needs of nursing staff working at different positions across the interface of intellectual disability and forensic mental health care.
