OER By Professor James Elander
Newly released onto the SCOOTER website are teaching resources of importance to health care professionals and that will also be highly relevant to students of medicine, nursing and other health-related disciplines. Professor James Elander from the University of Derby has produced three narrated lecture presentations talking about his research looking at sickle cell patient experiences of hospital pain management, and also the health care staff perceptions of sickle patients.
Professor Elander’s work highlights some tensions between the patient and staff relationships, and in all three pieces of research, he concludes with suggestions for improving hospital services and experiences particularly in relation to pain intervention, and also concludes there is an urgent need for further research into this area.
Professor James Elander is the Head of the Centre for Psychological Research at the University of Derby. He is a National Teaching Fellow.
