Towards the end of my time at Trousseau, it was a huge honour to be asked if I would like to consider staying on as an observer until October, with a view to continuing on, after that, in a Chef de Clinique appointment. This was a golden opportunity that I would have dearly snapped up. Unfortunately, the timing clashed with other previously made, very solid, arrangements. I am tremendously grateful to The Journal of Laryngology & Otology for supporting this Fellowship, and also to Professor Garabedian and his team for their exceptional hospitality, approachability and generosity.

This paper presents qualitative findings emergent from a participatory action research (PAR) study focused on developing service user and carer involvement in a university setting. The involvement of these experts by experience in practitioner education for health and social care, and nursing in particular, is now an international phenomenon. Adhering to the philosophy and practices of PAR, the project and the writing of this paper have been collectively produced.

BACKGROUND: Although many health care professionals (HCPs) in the United States have been educated about and recommend dietary supplements, little is known about their personal use of dietary supplements and factors associated with their use. METHODS: We surveyed HCPs at the point of their enrollment in an on-line course about dietary supplements between September, 2004 and May, 2005. We used multivariable logistic regression to analyze demographic and practice factors associated with use of dietary supplements.

In Ontario massage therapy is a regulated health profession, and it has been speculated that massage therapy students are motivated primarily by altruistic values, as has been documented in medicine. Students at Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic in Ontario were surveyed regarding their motivation to enter massage therapy education, with the intention of assessing the influence of certain value complexes on their decision.

PURPOSE: The study was conducted in order to determine whether the level of motivation related to intrinsic (people-oriented) and extrinsic (external reward) value complexes in a class of massage therapy students changed during their professional education. METHODS: The research was a quasi-experimental within-subject design, in which survey data was collected from students on their first day in the massage therapy program and again towards the end of their final term.

This paper examines the efforts of two complementary and alternative occupations, chiropractors and homeopaths, to move from the margins to the mainstream in health care in the province of Ontario. We use a variety of theoretical perspectives to understand how health occupations professionalize: the trait functionalist framework, social closure, the system of professions, and the concept of countervailing powers. The research traces the strategies that the leaders of the two groups are employing, as well as the resources they are able to marshal.

Vaccine

Immunisation is one of the corner stones of public health. Most health care consumers see the health care worker as their major source of information on immunisation and vaccine safety. Doctors, nurses and midwives should be appropriately and timely trained for that role. Within the Vaccine Safety, Attitudes, Training and Communication (VACSATC) EU-project a specific work package focused on the possible improvements of pre-service training of future health care workers.

OBJECTIVE: This study was undertaken to determine the relationship between the time spent teaching various manual procedures in each of two different chiropractic colleges and the actual practice of those procedures in the graduate clinical environment of the doctors involved. METHODS: A simple questionnaire instrument was constructed to assess the frequency of use of 9 different manual evaluation treatment procedures. All graduates from the two chiropractic colleges in the state of Texas who obtained their license between 1988 and 1993 were polled.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the ability of Chiropractic College Assessment Test (CCAT) to explain academic success within a chiropractic basic science curriculum. METHODS: The CCAT examination was administered to 202 subjects from 1 chiropractic college on the first day of classes. Zero-order Pearson correlations were used to examine for associations between the prechiropractic grade point average (GPA), CCAT scores, and basic science GPA. Multiple regression techniques were applied to determine the predictive efficacy of CCAT scores on basic science GPA.
