The limits of primary care
In this unit we explore questions of access to community services. To make what might be quite a dry task more challenging we use a fictionalised case study of two people for whom access to community services is particularly problematic. Jim and Marianne are both long-term heroin addicts. Additional problems associated with their addiction are homelessness and physical illness. Their situation raises both practical questions, about how services can be accessed, and moral questions, about entitle

1.5 The problem of power: policy as political
Much literature on the public policy process focusses narrowly on the policy-making part. This unit widens the focus to examine the implementation phase, and how change happens as a result of new policies: that is, policy – action relationship. It does this by looking at four different models of how this relationship can work through examples from varying fields. The unit will be of interest to public sector managers, their staff and the general reader.

Active Transport in Insect Malpighian Tubules
The Malpighian tubules of insects are an excellent model for examining the properties of secretion in a transporting epithelium. In this exercise students expose tubules from cockroaches or crickets to chlorophenol red and visually estimate the dye concentration in the lumen. By adding metabolic inhibitors and competitors or by substituting ion-free media they can demonstrate competition, specificity, and energy- or ion-dependence of active transport. Advanced students can design their own exper
