Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    The University of Strathclyde was commissioned by Macmillan Cancer Support in collaboration with NHS GG&C to support the early evaluation of an evolving training program for community pharmacy support staff, one of the key recommendations from a previous program evaluation. The aims of this study were twofold: (1) To assess the appropriateness of the content of the palliative care training and ascertain staff opinions concerning the webinar format and (2) To evaluate the impact of the training, regardless of the delivery format i.e. face-to-face and webinar formats. The four-level Kirkpatrick model allows the opportunity to explore learner initial satisfaction with an educational intervention, gained knowledge and/or skills, changes in learner behaviour due to training and the long-term impact the learner has on their organisation due to their training.
