'Dying, A Normal Part of Life' is an educational module featured in the suite of EOLE modules and includes education around the impact of end of life and dying on health care professionals working in acute hospitals, identifying common patterns of trajectories of dying, and discussing the reasons why dying in acute hospitals is often complex for professionals, patients, and families. This White Paper outlines and explores the results of the retrospective data analysis conducted for a two year period, 6th May 2017 to 5th May 2019. A total of 2232 learner statements responding to the free text response question posed at the end of the module: "Tomorrow, the one thing I can change to more appropriately provide end-of-life care is…" were extracted from the EOLE learning platform. The results identified the following themes as nominated practice change areas: Patient-centred care; Communication skills; Humanising healthcare; Recognise and talk about dying; Organisational factors. ItemThe role of Indigenous Health Workers in ear health screening programs: a scoping review protocol(Flinders University, 2021-11-10) Poirier, Brianna; Quirino, Leanne; Allen, Michelle; Wilson, Roland; Stephens, JacquelineIntroduction Rates of ear disease and consequent hearing loss are greater for First Nations children than for their non-Indigenous counterparts in Australia, Canada, the United States, and New Zealand. While the First Nations health workforce is recognised as being vital to the provision of culturally appropriate health care to First Nations peoples and communities, there is a lack of information about Indigenous Health Workers’ role in ear health screening programs. A preliminary search of MEDLINE, the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and JBI Evidence Synthesis was conducted and no current or underway systematic reviews or scoping reviews on the topic were identified. Review question What are IHWs’ perspectives about their roles, involvement, and training in the provision of ear health screening programs for First Nations peoples and communities in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States? ItemModel-Based Assessment of Coastal Aquifer Management Options. A GMDSI worked example report(The National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training, Flinders University, 2021-11-01) Hugman, Rui; Doherty, John; Standen, KathThis GMDSI report describes a model that was built to explore options for management of a coastal aquifer in southern Portugal. The aquifer is representative of many around the world; if extraction continues at its present rate, it is only a matter of time before it suffers a serious degradation in quality. Extraction must therefore be reduced. Alternatively, or as well, recharge must be enhanced. Enough data has been gathered over the last 20 years to support estimation of aquifer properties and inflows. These estimates are enabled by history-matching; however they are cloaked in uncertainty. ItemDigital Education in the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences: Discipline Discussions(Flinders University, 2021-09-28) Cornelius-Bell, Aidan; Tikhonova, Daria; Bouvet, Eric; Schech, Susanne; Ngo, Mai; Parisot, Eric; Diaz-Martinez, Javier; Kane, James; Carter, HelenThe research reported here was undertaken by the Digital Education Working Group (DEWG) to achieve the following four objectives, in line with the CHASS Digital Education Action Plan: 1. To better understand the perspectives on, experiences with and plans for digital education across the College to inform further strategy or changes in the College’s approach to digital education. 2. To scope the professional learning and resourcing needs in a systematic and robust way to ensure adequate support is being provided. 3. To gather insights on current discipline-based models of learning and teaching to inform recommendations on the scholarship of teaching, particularly online teaching models. 4. To synthesise current good practice examples. The DEWG research team worked with eight discipline groups across CHASS in 2021: Archaeology, English, Geography, History, Indigenous Studies, Languages, Philosophy, and Screen and Media. This report serves as a high-level synthetic overview of the results of in-depth focus group interviews conducted with staff and makes recommendations about ways forward for digital education, with relevant stakeholders identified at College and University levels. Here, DEWG and the College’s executive leadership team hold responsibility for understanding, driving, improving and supporting the digital education strategies in the College. The report summarises key findings across several key areas. ItemPhotos from the special performance of 'Coranderrk', performed on Country at Coranderrk Station(2016-02-21) Jim DalyPhotos from the special performance of 'Coranderrk' - performed on country at the Coranderrk Station in an open-air stage in one of the paddocks near the old Station Manager's house (at 6.30pm). In 1881, the people of the Coranderrk Aboriginal Station took on the Board for the Protection of Aborigines in a fight for justice, dignity and self-determination. Today, we bring their voices back to life through a verbatim reading and live performance of their testimonies before the Coranderrk Parliamentary Inquiry. Coranderrk: We Will Show The Country pays tribute to the resilience and adaptability of a people who rose to the challenge despite all odds, and celebrates the spirit of friendship and genuine collaboration between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in pursuit of justice. ItemDecision-Support Modelling viewed through the lens of Model Complexity(National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training, Flinders University, 2021-08) Doherty, John; Moore, CatherineA report on decision-support for groundwater modelling and management. The authors’ perspectives on decision-support modelling are shown pictorially using a “roadmap”. This is intended to provide modellers with scientifically-based guidance for selection of a level of structural and parameterisation complexity that is appropriate for the decision-support context in which they are working. It may also assist modelling stakeholders to understand how groundwater modelling can best respond to the decision support imperatives that it is meant to serve. ItemProbabilistic Contributing Area Analysis: A GMDSI worked example report(National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training, Flinders University, 2021-06-25) Doherty, John; Rumbaugh, Jim; Muffles, ChrisPREFACE The Groundwater Modelling Decision Support Initiative (GMDSI) is an industry-funded and industry-aligned project focused on improving the role that groundwater modelling plays in supporting environmental management and decision-making. Over the life of the project, it will document a number of examples of decision-support groundwater modelling. These documented worked examples will attempt to demonstrate that by following the scientific method, and by employing modern, computer-based approaches to data assimilation, the uncertainties associated with groundwater model predictions can be both quantified and reduced. With realistic confidence intervals associated with predictions of management interest, the risks associated with different courses of management action can be properly assessed before critical decisions are made. GMDSI worked example reports, one of which you are now reading, are deliberately different from other modelling reports. They do not describe all of the nuances of a particular study site. They do not provide every construction and deployment detail of a particular model. In fact, they are not written for modelling specialists at all. Instead, a GMDSI worked example report is written with a broader audience in mind. Its intention is to convey concepts, rather than to record details of model construction. In doing so, it attempts to raise its readers’ awareness of modelling and data-assimilation possibilities that may prove useful in their own groundwater management contexts. The decision-support challenges that are addressed by various GMDSI worked examples include the following: • assessing the reliability of a public water supply; • protection of a groundwater resource from contamination; • estimation of mine dewatering requirements; • assessing the environmental impacts of mining; and • management of aquifers threatened by salt water intrusion. In all cases the approach is the same. Management-salient model predictions are identified. Ways in which model-based data assimilation can be employed to quantify and reduce the uncertainties associated with these predictions are reported. Model design choices are explained in a way that modellers and non-modellers can understand. The authors of GMDSI worked example reports make no claim that the modelling work which they document cannot be improved. As all modellers know, time and resources available for modelling are always limited. The quality of data on which a model relies is always suspect. Modelling choices are always subjective, and are often made differently with the benefit of hindsight. What we do claim, however, is that the modelling work which we report has attempted to implement the scientific method to address challenges that are typical of those encountered on a day-to-day basis in groundwater management worldwide. As stated above, a worked example report purposefully omits many implementation details of the modelling and data assimilation processes that it describes. Its purpose is to demonstrate what can be done, rather than to explain how it is done. Those who are interested in technical details are referred to GMDSI modelling tutorials. A suite of these tutorials has been developed specifically to assist modellers in implementing workflows such as those that are described herein. We thank and acknowledge our collaborators, and GMDSI project funders, for making these reports possible. ItemRelationships of eHealth Literacy to Socio-Demographic Characteristics and Engagement in Online Learning: A Quantitative Study(Flinders University, 2021-06) Tieman, Jennifer; De Valle, Madelaine; Miller-Lewis, LaurenOver the next two decades, population growth, chronic disease progression and an ageing population will see a growing number of people confront the difficulties that often accompany coming to the end of one’s life. Online palliative care resources can provide valuable information to individuals, families, carers, and others. In order to be effective, however, such resources need to be readily found, understood, and applied by consumers. eHealth literacy – the ability to find, understand, and apply online health resources – is becoming increasingly important in palliative care. While the body of literature pertaining to the way health information is provided to the community is growing, little is currently known about predictors of eHealth literacy in the context of death and dying, or how eHealth literacy is related to engagement with online health resources. This White Paper reports on a study undertaken to examine relationships between eHealth literacy and sociodemographic and personal characteristics within a sample enrolled in an online course about death and dying. The Study on which this White Paper reports used a convenience sample of students who were participating in a MOOC (massive open online course) about death and dying. ItemEnd-of-Life Online Health Education Uptake and Usage by Australian Health Professionals: Urban, Rural and Remote Settings(Flinders University Research Centre for Palliative Care, Death and Dying, 2021) Devery, Kim; Yin, Huahua; Morgan, Deidre; Rawlings, DebAccess to skilled end-of-life care is particularly important for those who live in rural and remote areas in Australia given the high levels of chronic disease and higher mortality rates. However, health professionals in rural and remote areas do not always receive adequate training to provide this care due to lack of accessible education. End-of-Life Essentials (EOLE) is a government funded education project which aims to provide free peer-reviewed online education modules and implementation resources on end-of-life care to health professionals in acute hospitals in Australia. In order to understand the uptake and usage of the EOLE education modules, learners’ geographical locations and module completion data from the first year of the program were analysed according to remoteness category. This White Paper outlines and explores the results of the retrospective data analysis conducted in June 2018. Data from learners who registered in the first year of the EOLE program was were extracted, and 4224 learners were included for data analysis. Study findings show that there is a good reach of EOLE to health professionals living in remote and very remote areas. As learners from very remote areas showed the highest proportion of module completion, it suggests the potential benefit of this important online education in providing accessible continuing end-of-life care education for health professionals residing in the most remote parts of Australia. ItemRapid Data Assimilation Using an Appropriately Complex Model: a GMDSI worked example report(National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training, Flinders University, 2021) Manewell, Neil; Doherty, JohnThe Groundwater Modelling Decision Support Initiative (GMDSI) is an industry-funded and industry-aligned project focused on improving the role that groundwater modelling plays in supporting environmental management and decision-making. This GMDSI report addresses a number of related issues. They include: appropriate model complexity; appropriate parameterisation complexity; efficient model-based assimilation of information-rich data; and linear analysis. The focus of modelling work that is reported herein is BHP’s Orebody 31 (OB31) situated in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The environs of this mine have been the focus of a number of generations of modelling, some of which is described in the present report. Mining of OB31 commenced in 2016; however data collection and modelling took place for a number of years prior to that. ItemExploring Model Defects Using Linear Analysis: A GMDSI worked example report(National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training, Flinders University, 2021-02) Nicol, Chris; Doherty, JohnThe Groundwater Modelling Decision Support Initiative (GMDSI) is an industry-funded and industry-aligned project focused on improving the role that groundwater modelling plays in supporting environmental management and decision-making. Over the life of the project, it will document a number of examples of decision-support groundwater modelling. These documented worked examples will attempt to demonstrate that by following the scientific method, and by employing modern, computer-based approaches to data assimilation, the uncertainties associated with groundwater model predictions can be both quantified and reduced. With realistic confidence intervals associated with predictions of management interest, the risks associated with different courses of management action can be properly assessed before critical decisions are made. In this GMDSI worked example report, we demonstrate how linear analysis can be used to explore whether a groundwater model can indeed be useful while being wrong, and under what circumstances it can actually be described as being "fit for purpose". However, before doing this, we explore the metrics on which these descriptions must rest. Item‘These Happy Effects on the Character of the British Sailor’: Family Life in Sea Songs of the late Georgian period.(Amsterdam University Press, 2020) Dooley, GillianSongs about sailors were popular during the late Georgian period in Britain. Some were directed towards men in the navy or potential recruits, but they were also part of the musical repertoire of the middle-class drawing room. A common theme is the importance of family life. With large numbers of men needed to serve in the military in this time of war and colonial expansion, it was essential for the home front that their families remained cohesive, and ballads were sometimes written with the express purpose of promoting fidelity and patience on the part of both men and women. This chapter examines the varieties of family and conjugal relations presented in the verbal and musical rhetoric of a selection of these songs. ItemAging Well in Harmony Toolkit: Personalised care to residents with dementia in rural aged care facilities(Flinders University, 2020-12) Hamiduzzaman, Mohammad; Kuot, Abraham; Greenhill, Jennene; Strivens, Edward; Isaac, VivianThis toolkit is an outcome of a non-pharmacological intervention, ‘Harmony in the Bush’, conducted by Flinders University Rural Health SA in five rural aged care facilities over two years, funded by the Australian Department of Health under the National Aged Care Services Program. We aimed to demonstrate that a co-designed personalised care model, based on the Progressively Lowered Stress Threshold principles and personalised and group music activities, is effective in reducing behavioural and psychological symptoms of residents with dementia while also reducing caregiver stress. ItemSouth Australian Allied Health Rural Generalist Pathway Evaluation: Phase 2 Report (Flinders University, 2020-08) Dymmott, Alison; Brebner, Chris; George, Stacey; Campbell, Narelle; Milte, Rachel; O'Connor, Julianne; May, Jodie; Poklar, SilvanaIn 2019 the Allied Health Rural Generalist Pathway (AHRGP) was introduced in SA Health Regional Local Health Networks (LHNs) through the provision of Rural Health Workforce Strategy funding from the Government of South Australia. This was one of a range of projects funded by this strategy to improve workforce outcomes and the quality of health service provision in rural and remote areas. The AHRGP is a post graduate training course for AHPs working in rural or remote areas designed to develop rural generalist specialist skills and knowledge. The AHRGP also includes an expectation for trainees to progress service improvement projects that utilise one or more nominated rural generalist service strategies, have dedicated profession specific supervision, and have protected study time at work.

ItemSouth Australian Allied Health Rural Generalist Pathway Evaluation: Phase 1 Report(Flinders University, 2019-12) Dymmott, Alison; Brebner, Chris; George, Stacey; Campbell, Narelle; O'Connor, Julianne; May, Jodie; Poklar, SilvanaIn 2019 Rural Health Workforce Strategy funding, provided by the Government of South Australia, supported the introduction of the Allied Health Rural Generalist Pathway (AHRGP) as a strategy for improving allied health workforce and quality outcomes for rural and remote South Australians. This pathway was originally developed through a collaboration between the Allied Health Professions Office of Queensland, Services for Rural and Remote Allied Health (SARRAH), Australian state and territory healthcare sectors, and other stakeholders including universities and the Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association. The education component of the AHRGP is provided by James Cook University in two levels for newly qualified and more experienced Allied Health Professionals (AHPs). Rural generalist trainees enrolled in the program undertake course work and work-based projects throughout the program. They have protected time within their workload to study as well as dedicated profession specific supervision.
