Three-dimensional body scanning is used to determine surface anthropometry characteristics such as body volume, segment lengths and girths. Three-dimensional scanning systems use laser, light or infrared technologies to acquire shape and software to... Read More about Non-imaging method: 3D scanning..

Scottish healthcare students' perceptions of an interprofessional ward simulation: an exploratory descriptive study. (2017)
Journal Article
ROBERTS, F. and GOODHAND, K. 2017. Scottish healthcare students' perceptions of an interprofessional ward simulation: an exploratory descriptive study. Nursing and health sciences [online], 20(1), pages 107-115. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1111/nhs.12393

The most memorable learning occurs during placement. Simulated inter-professional learning is a logical learning opportunity to help healthcare professionals work beyond their professional silos. In this qualitative study, we investigated the perceiv... Read More about Scottish healthcare students' perceptions of an interprofessional ward simulation: an exploratory descriptive study..

Culture, development mechanisms and characteristics: building the profile of the optimal youth football coach. (2017)
Presentation / Conference
CAMPBELL, C., BUCHANAN, N., BURGESS, K., COOPER, K. and MCCANN, B. 2017. Culture, development mechanisms and characteristics: building the profile of the optimal youth football coach. Presented at the 2017 British Psychological Society (BPS) Division of sport and exercise psychology conference (DSEP 2017), 11-12 December 2017, Glasgow, UK.

Social interaction and relationships lie at the heart of the coaching process. Coaches are no longer limited to developing relationships between themselves and the players (coach-athlete relationship) but are instead exposed to connections within a m...
