Re: Quick query: forgotten word! Thesis brain melt..

It sounds like a narrative review. A narrative review is not systematic because it does not include a systematic search of the literature but uses selective parts of the literature in order to build the argument (i.e. narrative) for the point the reviewer is trying to make. For example, a narrative ...

Re: Endings...

Hi Moonbeam,

There's some information on the CAT website which details what might be included in a goodbye letter here:

It's from a CAT perspective but I'm sure the same principles would apply to any ending letter.

Re: Splitting in teams

Hello,

I often found it useful to refer to the boundary see saw model by Hamilton who did some work with staff in secure settings. You can use it to see which staff are on which end of the seesaw, either super carer or super controller, and encourage them to aim for somewhere in the middle.

Re: Interview with a hospice

Hello mjb223, congrats on getting the interview. It might be helpful to look at the person specification for the job as sometimes that can give you clues about what they might ask. As it is working in a hospice I imagine they would want to know about your skills in coping with emotive or difficult s...

Re: Should I give up on wanting to be a CP?

Just a small point but I'm not sure the terms 'schizophrenics and personality disordered patients' are the best terms to use when referring to people you are working with. It may come across as though you are seeing the diagnosis before the person or seeing everyone with that diagnosis as a homogeno...

Very illuminating read with also some really good tips and stories about how a palliative care team can wor...

Re: Reflection

Hi 017746, I think this is a great start to a reflective piece and definitely more helpful and illuminating to shortlisters compared to just saying you have skills in empathy and that you should take into account people's contexts. I'd echo what Laura86 said about your first sentence. It may come ac...
