Title: Quality of emergency obstetric care in Ghana

Abstract: 

Although women giving birth in health facilities has increased over the years in Ghana, maternal deaths are still unacceptably high. Women dying in health facilities while giving birth brings to question the quality of emergency obstetric care. Are emergency obstetric services available and ready when there is a complication?

Emergency obstetric and newborn care (EmONC) signal functions are the standard indicators for assessing health facility readiness in emergency cases. However, recent literature has proposed a broader range of indicators including routine services and the capacity of health facilities, all of which may affect patient choice of healthcare facility.

In this seminar, we will discuss a recent maternal health service provision assessment (SPA) of 151 health facilities. The SPA was used to develop a quality care index based on a broader set of domains. Two approaches, an index of multiple deprivation and principal component analysis were used to analyse the data. Preliminary visualisations of the origins and destinations of over 40,000 women giving birth in these health facilities will also be discussed.

Initial results show mostly secondary care facilities in higher quality quintiles, where domains measured capacity or physical size of health facilities. However, there is more variation in domains assessing training, water sanitation and hygiene, privacy, and staff motivation. Facility size or tier thus serves as a poor proxy for these aspects of service quality.  Going forwards, the study will assess how these quality indicators affect healthcare utilisation through spatial interaction modelling.

Title: Consequences of extinction and introduction of animals for interactions on islands

Abstract: Anthropogenic impact has changed ecosystems around the world, introducing non-native species and causing extinctions. Most of the recent vertebrate extinctions have happened on islands. The current biodiversity crisis is therefore very much an island crisis. The resulting changes in community compositions have in turn changed the interactions between species, risking cascades of secondary extinctions in the future. I will discuss the consequences of extinctions and introductions of fruit-eating animals for plant-animal interactions, on Mauritius and 111 other islands worldwide, across 19 archipelagos.

Introduction to Sequence Analysis for Social Sciences

Additional Place Info: Online

The course gives an introduction to the theoretical and practical concepts of sequence analysis for social sciences.

Sequence analysis, originally developed in biology to analyse strings of DNA, has attracted increasing attention in the social sciences for the analysis of longitudinal data. Most applications in the social sciences study life course processes, such as labour market careers, educational careers, or family formation.

During the short course, we will discuss the usefulness of sequence analysis in applied social sciences as a holistic approach to investigate timing, quantum and sequencing of life course events.

In this interactive workshop, you will gain confidence and practical knowledge on how you can best integrate equality, diversity and inclusion values in your policy impact. You are not expected to have any prior specialist knowledge in equality, diversity and inclusion or policy impact, but a general understanding will be helpful.

During the workshop, the trainer will talk on why these values and this topic is vital for policy making and policy impact, and provide some practical examples on easy ways to ensure you’re taking these into consideration. Alongside this, the workshop will encourage you to examine power structures and how they fit into your own research and policy impact work, and how to respond to this. This workshop is not intended to capture everything in this space, but it will provide a good starting point for those wishing to learn and more importantly, do, more.

 

By the end of the workshop you will

❖ Explore why understanding Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is vital for policy impact

❖ Gain a better understanding of the current landscape and what this might mean for future policy making

❖ Understand and practice using some tools in accessibility and inclusion for policy impact

Introducing Institutional Ethnography: an interdisciplinary feminist approach to social research

Additional Place Info: Online

This workshop will introduce Institutional Ethnography (IE), an interdisciplinary feminist approach to social research that focuses on how texts and language organise our everyday lives.

IE is not just a methodology, but a comprehensive feminist ontology of how the social world works which advocates using a form of standpoint to explore from specific perspectives. IE research ‘takes sides’, often researching as, with, and/or for, marginalised groups who are often made invisible by, or excluded from, organisations and institutions. The focus on texts – conceptualised as replicable materials objects that carry messages – allows IE researchers to ethnographically explore the organising power of language and institutions, made material in institutional texts which act as bridges between different people and places.

The overall aim of the workshop is to provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of institutional ethnography as an approach and the opportunity to translate their own research ideas and projects into an IE research proposal or small piece of text-focused analysis.

This hands on workshop is suitable for students, academics, and anyone else interested in feminist methodologies, text and discourse analysis, and institutional or organisational ethnographies. No prior training in, or knowledge of, IE is required.

Something magical happens when the sultry hot jazz made famous by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli meets the hard-driving Western swing sound pioneered by Bob Wills and early string bands of the American Southwest. The ear-catching result of this surprising marriage is the Hot Club of Cowtown, the effervescent Austin-based trio beloved for more than two decades by devoted fans across the United States and around the world.

Romantic and rhythmic, happy-making and heart-breaking, sophisticated and elegant while still down-to-earth and rugged, the Hot Club of Cowtown now returns with its much-anticipated eleventh album, an enticing new collection of original compositions (plus a few inspired standards).

Introduction to Data Linkage

Additional Place Info: Online

This short course is designed to give participants a practical introduction to data linkage and is aimed at both analysts intending to link data themselves and researchers who want to understand more about the linkage process and its implications for analysis of linked data—particularly the implications of linkage error.

Day 1 will focus on the methods and practicalities of data linkage (including deterministic and probabilistic approaches) using worked examples.

Day 2 will focus more on analysis of linked data, including concepts of linkage error, how to assess linkage quality and how to account for the resulting bias and uncertainty in analysis of linked data. Examples will be drawn predominantly from health data, but the concepts will apply to many other areas.

This course includes a mixture of lectures and practical sessions that will enable participants to put theory into practice.

Forced to cancel his 2020 tour due to the pandemic, we are thrilled to welcome English folk musician Sam Sweeney back to Turner Sims with music from his latest release Unearth Repeat.

Sam is a veteran of the mighty Bellowhead, former artistic director of the National Folk Youth Ensemble, founder member of the acclaimed instrumental trio Leveret, and a superb instrumentalist at the forefront of the revival in English traditional music. His stunning debut album The Unfinished Violin was inspired by the history of his own violin, which Sam had discovered was originally commissioned in 1915 by a man who was subsequently killed in the Great War. Unearth Repeat marks a change of direction – the swagger and groove of traditional English music with the huge sound, flare, energy and festival spirit of bands coming out of the Celtic and Scandinavian music scenes – and played on a violin Sam bought from the late fiddle legend Dave Swarbrick.

The fiddler with the Midas touch… an English equivalent of the great Irish fiddle player Martin Hayes. **** The Guardian

Sweeney’s playing is unearthly at times: the singular focus of this set and the level of its performance makes this an outstanding and deeply moving experience. ***** Songlines

…the expressiveness and, yes, sheer depth and focus of this music are so vast, I swear there are moments I’m just happy to be alive to hear this. And how the tunes bring all those images to me… celtbritfolkmusic.net
