In this report the Health Committee welcomes improvements in the performance of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) over the last year, but expresses continuing concern that the progress made so far remains fragile. The Committee emphasises that it is important to ensure that the new challenges facing the NMC do not become a distraction from the continuing requirement to improve its performance of its core functions. The report is the first example of a Health Committee review of a professional regulator which builds on the work of the Professional Standards Authority (PSA). The length of time the NMC takes to conclude its fitness to practise cases has been an enduring concern for the Committee. From 2015, the NMC proposes to toughen the target period for resolving fitness to practise cases to 15 months (eventually to 12 months). The NMC has announced plans to introduce a system of revalidation by the end of 2015 which is welcomed. The Francis Report into the failings at Mid Staffs examined the role of regulators, including the NMC, in detail. The report stresses the importance of ensuring firstly that registrants understand their professional obligation to raise concerns when they see evidence of poor patient care, and secondly that patients and public are made more aware of the role of the NMC as the regulator of professional and clinical standards. The NMC should take urgent steps to raise the profile of the NMC both among its registrants and among patients and public.

This year's inquiry into the work of Monitor concludes that the model of care provided by the health and care system is not changing quickly enough with the result that pressures continue to build, threatening the financial stability of individual providers, and therefore the quality of care provided The pressures are likely to be particularly marked in the acute sector as plans are prepared and implemented to achieve the resource transfer required by the introduction of the Better Care Fund from April 2015. Continuing this theme, the Committee argues that as the NHS financial situation tightens, the challenge for Monitor in supporting trusts in financial difficulty is likely to increase. The MPs emphasise the importance of addressing pressures within individual providers in the context of the local health economy. The requirement for major change in the care model can only be delivered if individual providers, and Monitor as their regulator, look beyond preserving existing structures and address the need to develop different structures to meet changing needs. The Committee also expresses concern that Monitor has not done enough to reform the system of tariff payments for providers, arguing that the current tariff arrangements often create perverse incentives for providers and inhibit necessary service change. It recommends that Monitor and NHS England should initiate a formal joint process for a prioritised review of the NHS tariff arrangements with the objective of identifying and eliminating perverse incentives and introducing new tariff structures which incentivise necessary service change

GMC's fitness to practise successfully produces outcomes that protect patients from sub-standard doctors but failures to communicate the reasons for decisions and poor investigative practices have undermined a small number on investigations. The GMC should review its fitness to practice procedures to prevent such mistake. The Committee also found that while it is still too early to judge whether revalidation has been effective there is a worrying approach to the oversight of revalidation. Each designated body has a responsible officer for revalidating their medical staff, but the degree to which the responsible officer will be held to account is unclear. It is imperative that the GMC clarifies the personal responsibility and accountability of responsible officers. There is also concern over the number of responsible officers available to oversee the revalidation of doctors working in primary care. GPs are revalidated not by their own employers but by one of the 27 NHS England local area teams that oversees Clinical Commissioning Groups in England. Just 27 responsible officers will be tasked with overseeing revalidation for approximately 45,0000 GPs in England. The Government's intention had been to give the GMC the power to allow it to appeal decisions made by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) in 2014 by using a mechanism in secondary legislation called a section 60 order. The Government now plans to introduce the reform in primary legislation as part of a proposed Law Commission Bill thus meeting with even further delay

English description: This volume comprises interdisciplinary papers on different subjects in the field of the humanities, which were read at a workshop of the same name at the University of Trier in 2008. For the first time, the papers focus on the study of the construction, manifestation and dynamics of formulaic expressions in texts and images, demonstrate new methods of their analysis and cover a historical range from antiquity to the present. Above all, the volume provides the basis for a new multidisciplinary field of research on formulaic style in verbal and visual media.

Vor allem legt der Band das Fundament fur die Erschliessung eines neuen fachubergreifenden Forschungsfeldes der verbalen und visuellen Formelhaftigkeit.

«Liebe Mama, ich habe eine wunderbare Zeit hier. Wir spielen jeden Tag Fußball. Stell dir vor, die Matratzen haben gar keine Sprungfedern ...» So beginnt der erste Brief des neunjährigen Roald an seine Mutter Sofie Magdalene, geschrieben unter dem wachsamen Blick des gestrengen Schuldirektors. Vierzig Jahre lang wird Roald Dahl wöchentlich einen Brief an seine Mutter senden: ein Bericht seiner Erlebnisse auf Boarding School und College, seiner Abenteuer im Ausland und zu Kriegszeiten, der Höhe- und Tiefpunkte seines Lebens von der Jugend in Wales bis hin zum diplomatischen Dienst in Washington, wo Dahl Politiker wie Filmstars trifft und die Geschicke des Landes mitbestimmt. Er ahnt nicht, dass seine Mutter jeden einzelnen der sechshundert Briefe hüten wird wie einen Schatz. Sofie Magdalene war Roald Dahls erste Leserin und Kritikerin. Sie ermutigte ihn dazu, Geschichten zu erzählen und aufzuschreiben. Anhand dieser Briefe ist nicht nur die Entwicklung des Jungen zum Erwachsenen dokumentiert, sondern auch, wie Roald Dahl mit seiner Phantasie, seinem erzählerischen Talent und seinem einzigartigen schwarzen Humor zu einem der erfolgreichsten Schriftsteller der Welt wurde.

Warum gibt es so oft Missverständnisse selbst zwischen guten Freunden? Warum wissen die wenigsten Ehemänner, was ihre Ehefrauen wollen – und umgekehrt? Warum scheitern Verhandlungen, obwohl sich alle Beteiligten optimal vorbereitet haben? Nicholas Epley hat sich intensiv mit den Fallstricken der menschlichen Kommunikation auseinandergesetzt. Wir alle glauben, uns selbst gut zu kennen, so Epley – und irren uns meist gewaltig. Der nächste fatale Fehler: Wir schließen von uns selbst auf andere. Wir müssen lernen, unsere Empathie zu nutzen. Wie das funktioniert, wie wir eigene und fremde Motive und Bedürfnisse ergründen können, erläutert der Autor anhand von aktuellen wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen. Eine Gebrauchsanleitung für erfolgreiches Mind Reading in jeder Lebenslage – beruflich wie privat.
