This October is the 10th anniversary of the Equality Act in Great Britain, and COVID-19 has shown why it is still so needed. As a UNISON activist in a voluntary sector branch, I rely on the Equality Act when representing members – including disabled members discriminated against and facing dismissal because of sickness levels, lack of disability leave or reasonable adjustments. I have also used it to prevent discrimination happening in the first place, working with employers to introduce accessibility passports for disabled workers. The Equality Act was a fantastic achievement. Years of trade union campaigning and a ...

Although the relationship is still unclear, such an association may not be expected or useful. Researchers should consider the measurement properties of single-item self-report measures and seek to establish their relationship with clinically meaningful outcomes. As such, further study is required to inform practitioners on the appro...

Since the legislation was introduced in the Republic of Ireland to enable nurses and midwives to prescribe in May 2007, there are now 1,123 nurses registered to prescribe medication. Mental health nurses, however, do not tend ...
