A comprehensive training program for reliable use of the ICD/10 in Consultation-Liaison (C-L) psychiatry was conducted with 220 psychiatrists and psychologists from 14 European countries. The training included rating of written test cases and development of a coding manual to avoid diagnostic pitfalls not addressed in the ICD-10 manual. Following this training, all consultants rated 13 written case histories. One hundred sixty-seven consultants (76%) had a kappa (kappa) of at least 0.70. Only 13 (6%) had a kappa 0.40. The percentage of high reliability raters was evenly distributed among the different countries. Consultants had some problems in the differentiation between adjustment disorders and depressive disorders, and in the classification of disorders where ICD-10 differs from the DSM-III-R system. National biases in diagnostic practice were found with regard to the "case" concept and the role of alcohol in confusional states. Finnish consultants coded "no psychiatric disorder" significantly more often, whereas German and Italian consultants attributed delirious state more often to alcohol than consultants from other European countries. The study demonstrates that it is possible to achieve acceptable interrater reliability in applying the ICD-10 guidelines...

OBJECTIVES: To examine patterns of cause specific mortality in NHS hospital consultants according to their specialty and to assess these in the context of potential occupational exposures. METHODS: A historical cohort assembled from Department of Health records with follow up through the NHS Central Register involving 18,358 male and 2168 female NHS hospital consultants employed in England and Wales between 1962 and 1979. Main outcome measures examined were cause specific mortality during 1962-92 in all consultants combined, and separately for 17 specialty groups, with age, sex, and calendar year adjusted standardised mortality ratios (SMRs) for comparison with national rates, and rate ratios (RRs) for comparison with rates in all consultants combined. RESULTS: The 2798 deaths at ages 25 to 74 reported during the 30 year study period were less than half the number expected on the basis of national rates (SMR 48, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 46 to 49). Low mortality was evident for cardiovascular disease, lung cancer, other diseases related to smoking, and particularly for diabetes (SMR 14, 95% CI 6 to 29). Death rates from accidental poisoning were significantly raised among male consultants (SMR 227, 95% CI 135 to 359), the excess being most apparent in obstetricians and gynaecologists (SMR 934); almost all deaths from accidental poisoning involved prescription drugs. A significantly raised death rate from injury and poisoning among female consultants was due largely to a twofold excess of suicide (SMR 215...

The work of an accident and emergency (A&E) consultant is not clearly defined. There is difficulty in fixing a job plan due to the unpredictable workload. This study shows the daily activities of nine consultants in A&E over a one month period. The results suggest that A&E consultants vary tremendously in the content of their working day, although a large proportion of hours is spent on administrative duties in all cases. Predictable variations occur between a single handed clinical director who spends 60% of his time in management and the consultant in a multiconsultant department who spends 74% of his time in clinical care and teaching. None of the consultants studied spent more than 48% of their time in clinical contact. A&E remains a specialty with no consistency between activities of consultants, and where opportunities exist to pursue special interest. Training must ensure adequate attention to management and methods of support for new consultants in their management role must be found.

OBJECTIVE--To assess the impact on general practitioners and hospital consultants of hospital outpatient dispensing policies in England. DESIGN--Postal questionnaire and telephone interview survey of general practitioners and hospital consultants in January 1991. SETTING--94 selected major acute hospitals in England. PARTICIPANTS--20 general practitioners in the vicinity of each of 94 selected hospitals and eight consultants from each, selected by chief pharmacists. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES--Proportions of general practitioners unable to assume responsibility for specialist drugs and of consultants wishing to retain responsibility; association between dispensing restrictions and the frequency of general practitioners being asked to prescribe hospital initiated treatments. RESULTS--Completed questionnaires were obtained from 1207 (64%) of 1887 general practitioners and 457 (63%) of 729 consultants. 570 (46%) general practitioners felt unable to take responsibility for certain treatments, principally because of difficulty in detecting side effects (367, 30%), uncertainty about explaining treatment to patients (332, 28%), and difficulty monitoring dosage (294, 24%). Among consultants 328 (72%) wished to retain responsibility, principally because of specialist need for monitoring (93...

This research aims at studying the formation of internal consultants in organizational setting in the joint resolution of problems, around the conversion of knowledge. The objective of research is to understand and explain the meanings attributed by Petrobras internal consultants to their practice and training for the conversion process of tacit knowledge into explicit, around the joint resolution of their problems with their collaborators. It has directed the next question: what the meanings assigned by the consultants of Unidade de Negócios Rio Grande do Norte e Ceara (UN-RNCE) in Knowledge Management (KM), for their interventionist and formative practices in problem solving, as well as conversion of tacit knowledge in explicit? This paper has assumed that there is a dual logic integrated into its daily practices: solving troubles and converting knowledge. The thesis has considered the daily practices of these consultants are characterized as epistemic spaces and permanent education through the conversion of knowledge. It has adopted the principles of multi-referential approach as foundations, regarding the translation of a variety of angles, perspectives and prospects which allow the interpretation and understanding of complex issues that are part of conversion of knowledge. The understanding and explanation of the senses are based on the methodology of the comprehensive interview; taking ownership is the sensitive listening for comprehensive interpretation of oral discourses of ten consultants...

This paper argues that European public affairs is a growing labour market exposed to a gradual institutionalization, albeit important internal cleavages and fragmentations. The primary focus of the analysis is on the position and orientation of legal firms and consultants. The author agrees to scholarly writing by underlining that commercial consultants and lobbyists do not belong to the powerful actors and stakeholders of the European arena. However, he argues that these companies do have an important impact on European politics on another dimension of analysis, because they play an active role (along with the European institutions, amongst others) in the construction and organization of public affairs as a labour-market of paid work on the basis of specific skills, shared claims to superior knowledge and ethical commitments. While the legal profession tries to preserve its own professional status and privilege, and attempts to dissociate itself from the dusky work of interest representation and lobbying, it cannot detach itself from the steady institutionalization and professionalization of European public affairs, which is having indirect effects on European politics.; This paper was originally presented at the Conference “The European Legal Field-Le champ juridique européen” organized by Bruno de Witte and Antoine Vauchez with the Robert Schuman Centre and the Academy of European Law (European University Institute...

Little research has been done on how well prepared occupational therapists feel to perform the role of consultant. This study investigated the perceptions of occupational therapists acting as consultants in Florida schools, how much education/training they have received and how they perceive their consultation skills. Participants in the study were sent a questionnaire and measures of central tendency were calculated on each item. Crosstabulations using Fisher's exact test were completed to investigate any relationship between type of consultation model used and relationships with educators. A one way ANOVA was conducted to investigate any relationship between self-perceived consultant skills and age, amount of experience, and training. The results indicate that occupational therapists providing consultative services rate their abilities as more than adequate and believe formal training in consultation is only mildly important. No significant relationships were found between training and skills or model used and relationships with educators.

Afghanistan is striving to emerge from a prolonged period of military occupation, wars and the Taliban rule. The country's security situation remains critical, especially outside of Kabul, yet the economy is stable and continues to grow. In the reconstruction process the country is receiving extensive donor support. Taking into consideration the World Bank's country assistance strategy, this report examines whether Afghanistan's Public Administration (PA) has access to the services it needs from international and national consultants under Bank and Afghan procurement rules. Both, the Bank's selection procedures and the Government of Afghanistan (GoA) policy, laws, rules of procedure, and practices are examined to determine whether they (1) lead to efficient consulting contract awards; and (2) support the development of local consulting firms. The demand and supply of international and domestic consulting services are assessed. In addition, this assessment identifies the key constraints that hamper the evolution of the domestic consulting sector. Suggestions are provided on what the GoA and the Bank could do to create an environment suitable for (1) qualified international consultants; and (2) the development of sustainable local consulting capacity necessary to help Afghanistan to implement its reform programs.

The aims of this study were to elicit general practitioner (GP) trainee's perceptions of the educational structure of their hospital posts, to compare them with those of consultants who had GP trainees as senior house officers (SHOs) in their departments and to examine the use of educational objectives in the hospital component of vocational training for general practice. A confidential postal questionnaire was sent to all the GP trainees (165 doctors) in the hospital component of their vocational training schemes (VTS) for general practice in Trent Region and all the consultants (161 doctors) in Trent who had GP trainees in their SHO posts on that date. Responses were received from 136 trainees (82%) and 134 consultants (83%). Educational objectives were stated as existing in the SHO post by 31 trainees (23%) and by 62 consultants (46%). Of those doctors who said that objectives existed, 19 of the trainees (61%) and 40 of the consultants (65%) said that the objectives were useful. Only nine (29%) of the trainees who stated that educational objectives existed felt that they were being put into practice by senior staff, compared with 41 (66%) of consultants who had made that statement. Of all respondents, 113 trainees (87%) and 100 consultants (77%) agreed or strongly agreed that the use of educational objectives would be beneficial to the trainees. Only 10 (7%) of trainees said that they received no teaching in their current posts. Forty trainees (32%) and 88 consultants (67%) said that teaching took place in protected time. Both groups cited consultants as the member of staff giving the most teaching. Ninety-six consultants (73%) replied that it was possible for GP trainees to obtain study leave...

OBJECTIVE--To canvass the views of all general practitioners and consultants working in Newcastle upon Tyne on the content of referral letters and replies, the feasibility of standardising certain aspects of referral letters, and the use of communications data for audit purposes. DESIGN--A postal questionnaire was sent to all general practitioners and consultants in Newcastle upon Tyne in May 1991. Questions were asked about the clinical and administrative content of letters, the utility of standard categories to state the reason for referral, the idea of using letters for feedback purposes, and communications as a potential topic for professionally led audit. SETTING--Area served by Newcastle upon Tyne Family Health Services Authority and District Health Authority. RESULTS--Replies were received from 274 (77%) doctors (115 general practitioners and 159 consultants). A majority (225; 82%) were in favour of items defined as "always important" forming a minimum requirement for referral letters and for consultants' replies. Using standardised categories to state the reason for referral was not endorsed: 102 (89%) general practitioners and 132 (83%) consultants preferred referrers to use their own words. Using referral communications to provide feedback was less popular with consultants (54; 34%) than general practitioners (72; 63%). Finally...

A questionnaire was sent to 508 consultants in Scotland likely to encounter deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism to assess their current standard practice in diagnosis and treatment of these disorders. Replies were received from 358 (70.5%). In deep vein thrombosis 47% and in pulmonary embolism 33% of consultants usually depended on clinical observation alone for diagnosis. In deep vein thrombosis 37% used venography to supplement clinical diagnosis and in pulmonary embolism 13% used angiography and 53% used isotopic scanning. Almost all consultants treated deep vein thrombosis (95%) and pulmonary embolism (99%) with anticoagulants. Most consultants (81%) gave heparin by intravenous infusion. Although many consultants gave intravenous heparin for more than three days (49.5% in deep vein thrombosis and 61% in pulmonary embolism), 25% of these consultants did not use any laboratory monitoring of heparin's effect. Large numbers of consultants gave warfarin for more than three months (20% in deep vein thrombosis and 47% in pulmonary embolism). There was a significant tendency to give heparin (p less than 0.01) and warfarin (p less than 0.001) for longer periods in pulmonary embolism than in deep vein thrombosis. This survey shows a widely varying practice and underlines the need for further controlled studies to provide clear guidance in the management of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.

This is the author accepted manuscript. The final version is available from the Royal College of Physicians via http://dx.doi.org/10.7861/futurehosp.2-3-173; Objectives To understand, from consultants? experiences, the potential benefits and limitations of specialists being employed by a community organisation. Methods A qualitative study using semi-structured interviews with consultants holding novel contracts across three specialties: geriatric medicine, respiratory medicine and palliative medicine. Results Consultants in our study reported that community based roles offered a number of potential benefits. They felt better able to take a population perspective, to treat patients in a holistic sense and to form good working relationships with community based colleagues. A number of challenges were also evident, including a lack of clarity about their role, professional isolation and, for those in geriatric and respiratory medicine, a lack of training and career development opportunities. Conclusions Our study suggests that community based consultant posts are often taken up by highly motivated individuals who report the benefits in terms of being able to provide more appropriate care for patients but that the long term development of these posts may be constrained by a number of factors. Their idiosyncratic nature...

This thesis describes how Innovation Management Consultants (IMCs) can promote changes in R&D/marketing relationships. The research was motivated by the scarce number of studies about the impact of IMCs on organisational relationships in general, and particularly on R&D and marketing relationships. This thesis contributes to knowledge in four strands of literature: technology management, organisational change, management consulting and conflict studies. Firstly, its main contribution is to technology management literature. Empirical evidence indicates that IMCs can modify the relationship between R&D and marketing functions, even though they are not hired explicitly for that purpose. Nonetheless, the main impact on the relationship is perceived at the personal level and it is dependent on the format of the intervention process. Additionally, the changes in the R&D/marketing relationship and its continuity seem to be conditional upon contextual factors such as specific company and consultant characteristics, as well as the nature of the consultant-client relationship. Secondly, this study has added to scholarly knowledge in organisational change by providing empirical evidence that IMCs advocate for the same dynamics used by Organisational Development (OD) consultants. The results highlight the importance of a facilitative-participative approach and organisational learning to generate change. The results suggest that certain OD theories such as sociotechnical systems theories and Lewin?s model can be used to explain the effect of IMCs on intra-organisational relationships. Thirdly...

Hiring consultants to implement the multiple components of an ERP installation is a common practice for securing expertise not found in client organizations. Ensuring the consultants work to the benefit of their client is potentially problematic as the consultants must adopt the goals of the client, coordinate with stakeholders within the client organization, and coordinate with those installing other components of the ERP. Controls are mechanisms that keep consultants on track with the objectives of client organizations. Control forms vary depending on the nature of the activity and the levels of expertise across clients and consultants. Just what forms of control are typically employed over consultants to promote the likelihood of a successful ERP implementation is not identified in the prior literature. Control theory is employed by this study to formulate an expectation of control, which is then examined through a multiple case study. Interviews of consultants, project managers in the client organizations, and project managers in the consulting firms confirm that client organizations employ performance controls on specified outcomes while the provider firms employ both outcome controls and behavioral controls to keep the ERP implementation project in line with client goals.

Este estudo apresenta os resultados de uma pesquisa que investiga os conhecimentos em Contabilidade Gerencial, transmitidos pelos consultores que publicam seus aconselhamentos em revistas especializadas e direcionados aos empresários das micro, pequenas e médias empresas (MPME). Especificamente, o estudo avalia se esses consultores estão utilizando, em seus aconselhamentos, práticas modernas de Contabilidade Gerencial. Para classificar os conhecimentos contidos nos aconselhamentos, utilizou-se um conjunto de 38 práticas, classificadas nos Quatro Estágios Evolutivos, descritos pela Federação Internacional de Contadores (International  Federation  of  Accountants), em 1998. Os dados foram coletados dos artigos publicados em duas revistas especializadas, Pequenas Empresas e Grandes Negócios (PEGN) e Exame PME, no período de 2006 a 2010. A análise revelou um equilíbrio entre as recomendações de práticas gerenciais consideradas tradicionais e contemporâneas, ou modernas, pois das 415 recomendações coletadas para este estudo, 208 podem ser classificadas como práticas tradicionais (práticas dos Estágios 1 e 2) e 207 como práticas contemporâneas (práticas dos Estágios 3 e 4). Conclui-se, portanto, que é possível aceitar que os consultores brasileiros...
