Contact tracing has always been a vital element in the control of sexually transmitted disease (STD), and the early full time contact tracers were more effective than doctors in this work. Those appointed to the early posts had to train themselves and they concentrated on contact tracing. Training has now improved, and most contact tracers in Britain, now called Health Advisers in STD, have attended a full time five day residential training course, and it is hoped that better courses may be developed. A handbook has been produced and widely circulated. The Society of Health Advisers in STD holds regular regional meetings and an annual conference. Health advisers may discover personal problems and have an important role in education, both of which activities are covered in their role specification. Health advisers in STD have developed from contact tracers to undertake a broad range of functions, but the question is asked whether they could contribute to other aspects of health care within the clinic.

BACKGROUND: In 1994, an Audit Commission report estimated that Pounds 425 million could be saved from the national drug budget if general practitioners (GPs) altered their prescribing in various ways. AIM: To assess the views of GPs and family health services authority (FHSA) advisers on issues similar to those raised in the Audit Commission report. METHOD: A questionnaire was sent to a 1 in 20 sample of GPs from 33 randomly selected FHSA areas (n = 576) and all FHSA advisers (n = 285). RESULTS: A total of 419 (72.7%) GPs and 234 (82.1%) advisers replied. There were statistically significant differences (P < 0.01) between GPs and advisers on all but one of the statements. In particular, there were marked differences on some of the statements relating to substitution with cheaper similar drugs. Differences were smaller for statements on the use of drugs of limited therapeutic value, the range of drugs prescribed, and practice prescribing policies. Differences were noted between subgroups of GPs in response to some of the statements. CONCLUSION: The majority of GPs in this survey gave responses that were supportive of many of the types of suggestion made by the Audit Commission. However, it is suggested that differences of opinion between GPs and FHSA advisers may have implications for the development of strategies to control prescribing costs.

Findings in behavioral science, including psychology, have been influencing policies and reforms in many nations. “Choice architecture” can affect outcomes even if material incentives are not involved. In some contexts, default rules, simplification, and uses of social norms have been found to have even larger effects than significant economic incentives. Psychological research is helping to inform initiatives in areas that include savings, finance, highway safety, consumer protection, energy, climate change, obesity, education, poverty, development, crime, corruption, health, and the environment. No nation has created a Council of Psychological Advisers, but the role of behavioral research is likely to grow in coming years, especially in light of the mounting interest in promoting ease and simplification (“navigability”); in increasing effectiveness, economic growth, and competitiveness; and in low-cost, choice-preserving approaches. (The Appendix is a one-page list of thirty-one such approaches.)

This paper develops a different kind of analysis of the compliance policy of the High Wealth Individuals (HWI) Taskforce of the Australian Taxation Office (Tax Office). It takes as its starting point the perceptions of HWI advisers who report that they have a considerable capacity to secure compliance with the law simply by pointing out to clients that something is illegal. Hence, working with advisers is important. Most advisers say they want more face-to-face communication with analysts. It is concluded that there is a set of good policy reasons for the Tax Office to respond to this concern. When advisers did have contact with HWI Taskforce staff, they overwhelmingly found them fair and professional. There was only one case of a specific complaint of non-compliance with the Taxpayers’ Charter from the 27 advisers interviewed.

The majority of advisers are also quite concerned about compliance costs from completing expanded returns. While abandoning the expanded return program would be a major mistake, there are a variety of ways the Tax Office can respond to these concerns. There was a lot of angst among advisers over the atmosphere of political ‘witch hunt’ that they felt permeated the initial establishment of the Taskforce.

‣ La administración de justicia para personas menores de edad desde la perspectiva de los actores: Jueces, Fiscales y Defensores. La invención y la reinvención de lo cotidiano

[Resumen:] Este artículo tiene por objetivo reconstruir los problemas para dictar justicia expresados a través de la voz de los principales actores que animan los tribunales de menores en la Justicia Nacional con asiento en la Ciudad de Buenos Aires: jueces de menores (jueces de menores y camaristas integrantes de los tribunales orales de menores), fiscales (de menores y que se desempeñan ante los TOM), y defensores públicos oficiales y letrados. La constatación realizada en la investigación que finalizó con mi tesis doctoral1 fue que las prácticas de los actores se reinventan permanentemente y la imaginación jurídica que las inspira poco tiene que ver con la dogmática y se correlaciona positivamente con los “problemas para dictar justicia” y la necesidad de dar respuestas. En aquella investigación se privilegió la mirada de los jueces en el proceso de administración de justicia penal para personas menores de edad, y la voz de otros actores como Fiscales, Defensores y Asesores se recuperó a través de las posiciones en sentencias y a través de la propia mirada de los jueces. En este artículo se pretende recuperar la voz de los actores en forma directa, a través de sus propios registros institucionales expresados en los informes que anualmente confeccionan y que son elevados por los respectivos organismos (Ministerio Público Fiscal y Ministerio Público de la Defensa) al Congreso de la Nación. Se pretende así componer un mapa de posiciones y valoraciones de jueces...

This thesis explores the role and significance of ministerial advisers in the Keating government (1991-1996). The role of ministerial advisers has changed substantially since they emerged in Australia in 1972, yet there is surprisingly little research about them. A study of the Keatling period is useful as it tracks the evolution of the ministerial office over a critical period in its development: the Hawke-Keating years (1983-1996). In this period the role of adviser grew, developed in new ways and was entrenched as a permanent part of the machinery of government in Austalia. The thesis reports the results of a major qualitative research project undertaken in 1995-6, in which 64 ministers, advisers and public servants were interviewed. The thesis first maps the different elements of the role, focusing on the functions that advisers performed in government. It argues that advisers were very important in government because they could perform key roles for the executive which went beyond their traditional work of political and personal support. These roles were communication, steering policy and coordination. The study distinguishes different types of advisers based on their behaviour, and identifies what were the areas of, and causes of...

‣ Pressure Politics: Why Australian Politicians Support or Ignore NGO Policy Campaigns

Every day in Parliament House and across Australia, politicians hear a wide range of policy proposals from a variety of non-government organisations (NGOs). Yet little research has been performed into why politicians decide to ignore or support NGO policy campaigns. This lack of transparency creates difficulty for NGOs seeking to deliver policy campaigns that earn politicians' support. The opaque policy process is complicated by a historically troubled relationship between Australian politicians and NGO campaigners, which, although often genial on the surface, can in reality lack openness and honesty. Despite the importance of NGOs for a strong democracy, Australian politicians have previously excluded NGOs from the policy process. This exclusion can undermine the public's perception of politicians' accountability, and discourage popular engagement with the policy process. Pressure Politics confronts a need for greater transparency in the Australian political system by clarifying the expectations, limitations and considerations of politicians, political advisers and campaigners when engaging in the policy process. This research could empower all parties to better accommodate each others' needs and concerns, enabling a more constructive relationship. Forty-one structured interviews were conducted with politicians...

The main objective of this paper is to contribute to the discussion, in theoretical terms, on the use of the knowledge, during both the social and the technical encounters between extension advisers and farmers. This reflection result from a research project (interviews and ethnographical observation) about extension advisers of farmer’s organizations (FO). In nowadays, in Trás-os-Montes and Alto-Douro (TMAD), we can find around 150 FO and 300 FO extension advisers. In Portugal, actually, such organizations assume the main part of the technical support to farmers, and private organizations and State services play a minor role. These extension advisers perform a variety of tasks of different categories or types, including: supervision of activities; technical advice (office and field work levels); project planning and monitoring; training; reception and analysis of farm subsidies' applications; administrative work; replacing the Directors in some duties; management of on-going projects; strategy definition; social activities with member farmers. In most cases, the work comprises a mix of tasks involving all of the above categories. The eight (or more) hours of daily work are mostly taken by technical tasks (69% of the time), followed by administrative (15%) and management ones (12%). The social animation activities (1% of the time) are underestimated...

The role of the ministerial office was one of the key issues investigated by the Royal Commission on Australian Gvoernment Administration (RCA GA) in 1976. At the time the ministerial office was undergoing new and controversial developments. In the 25 years since the Royal Commission the new ministerial office has become a permanent and accepted part of our machinery of government. This paper reviews RCAGA's analysis of ministerial advisers and uses research on the Keating advisers in 1995-96 to track how the institution of the ministerial office has developed since the time of the Royal Commission.

This article considers the accountability of ministerial advisers and their relationship with departments in the light of 'the children overboard' incident. It argues that if ministers are not going to accept responsibility for the actions of their advisers then on those occasions the advisers should be separately accountable to the parliament. The article further suggests that the department heads have a particular responsibility for ensuring the integrity of ministerial advice, and proposes steps to reinforce their capacity to fulfil that responsibility.

The seemingly nebulous and underhand role of special advisers has featured prominently in many of the government’s recent scandals – most recently in the case of Adam Smith and the handling of the Newscorps bid for BSkyB. Martin Smith argues that the problem is not their existence per se, but a lack of clarity about what they do and transparency about how they do it.

In this paper, one policy response to the problem of classed school choice experiences in England is examined. ‘Choice Advisers’ are employed by government to provide advice and information to working class and disadvantaged parents with the aim of ‘empowering’ them to exercise school choice and aspire to ‘better’ schools for their children. However, Advisers have been subjectified by contradictions inherent in policy, expected to solve the problems of school choice in a context of significant structural limits to choice for working-class parents. Interviews with Choice Advisers show that difficulties of the job in addition to insecure working conditions within local authorities have led to depoliticised, contradictory advice and Advisers bearing the brunt of policy both in terms of overwork and the venting of parental frustrations. Agency, both for parents and for Advisers themselves, is described as being something possessed by individuals rather than collectives, so there is little sense overall that underlying inequalities within the education system might be challenged.

Special Advisers are a now a fixture of British government, with “SpAds” patrolling the political space in between Ministers and the Civil Service, offering the kind of policy and political advice which “Sir Humphreys” don’t feel inclined or able to offer. Drawing on research from New Zealand, Richard Shaw and Chris Eichbaum show that little research has been carried out into why Ministers opt to have Special Advisers, while arguing that it is as likely that SpAds are recruited for their specific policy expertise as they are for their partisan viewpoint and connections.

This paper explores everyday interactions with the British welfare state at a moment when it is attempting to shift and transform its funding regimes. Based on a study situated in the offices of two London legal services providers, it draws attention to the role of a set of actors poised between local state officers and citizens: the advisers who carry out the work of translation, helping people to actualize their rights and, at the same time, forcing disparate state agencies to “speak to one another.” Advice and governmental services providers are increasingly part of the same system, helping to correct each other’s faults. At the same time, legal advisers’ work runs counter to the state’s aims when formal legal process is used to challenge unfair legislation. The picture is neither one of a separation between state and civil society, nor is it one in which a monolithic state is ineluctably eroding the independence of the third sector. Instead, ever more complex, blurred and idiosyncratic tangles of state, business and third sector are emerging in the field of public services.

Special Advisers becoming Members of Parliament is a phenomenon seen as symptomatic of a wider ‘professionalisation’ of British politics. Looking at the career progress of those Special Advisers who served between 1979 and 2010, Max Goplerud shows that they do not all seek a berth in Parliament, though those that do tend to experience rapid career progression.

BACKGROUND: Referral between psychiatrists and spiritual workers (e.g. Christian pastoral care workers, traditional healers, imams, rabbis and others) in the heterogeneous South African (SA) society is complicated and requires investigation to establish appropriate norms OBJECTIVE: To capture the views of some local psychiatrists on referral and collaboration between SA psychiatrists and religious or spiritual advisers. METHODS: This explorative qualitative study involved in-depth, semistructured interviews with 13 local academic psychiatrists selected through purposive sampling. Each participant had a single interview with the aim of exploring themes related to the referral and collaboration process between psychiatrists and spiritual advisers. Theme content analysis of interview transcripts was done. Results for one of the six identified themes are reported; other results are reported elsewhere. RESULTS: Within the theme 'referral and collaboration between psychiatrists and spiritual professionals, three subthemes were identified: facilitating appropriate referral and intervention for individual users; information sharing and mutual awareness between disciplines; and addressing stigmatisation of users with psychiatric conditions. CONCLUSION: Dialogue between psychiatrists and religious or spiritual advisers should be developed on an individual practitioner and facility basis...

This study investigates various threats to the survival of independent financial advisers in their organisational life cycle. Telephone interviews were conducted to gain more insight into the demographic data of the respodents and to attempt to group them into life-cycle stages. Personal interviews were conducted to investigate the respondents' problems. The contribution of this study is twofold. First, general life-cycle stages applicable to the businesses of independent financial advisers were determined. Secondly, the study identified the important problems as well as those that ought to be considered in the advisers' businesses. The findings could be of assistance to independent financial advisers in analysing both their current business position and their planning for future requirements as the business develops from one stage to the next.
