1. Kabaso, Bryson Nsama. A study to explore the role of community disability workers in facilitating livelihood opportunities for disabled youth in rural areas of Southern Botswana.

Degree: Image, Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, 2015, University of Cape Town

Purpose: This study aimed to explore the role of Community Disability Workers (CDWs) in facilitating livelihood opportunities for disabled youth in rural Southern Botswana. The CDWs in the study worked in Community- based Rehabilitation (CBR) programmes. The elements of the Livelihood component of CBR Guidelines include skills development, self-employment, waged employment, financial assistance and social security. In particular, the study presented the knowledge, skills, practices (activities and methods), and strategies used by CDWs to facilitate access to the livelihood opportunities for disabled youths in rural areas. The literature review explored CBR as a strategy for addressing the needs and demands of people with disabilities. Botswana has implemented a CBR programme which is co-ordinated at the Rehabilitation Division of the Ministry of Health and involves disabled people, health professionals, the community and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). Community health workers coordinate disability activities in rural as well as urban areas and comprise a range of health care practitioners namely physiotherapists, social workers, rehabilitation technicians, rehabilitation officers and health education assistants. In this study, community health workers were referred to as CDWs and only those with tertiary qualifications (certificate, diploma or degree level of training) were used as participants. Methodology: A qualitative research approach using a case study design was adopted. Purposive sampling was used to select seven participants from districts in the southern part of Botswana to participate in the study. The unit of study were the practices of the CDW in facilitating access to livelihood opportunities for disabled youth. Qualitative data was collected through semi-structured interviews with the CDWs. Interviews were digitally recorded and later transcribed verbatim. Analysis of data involved coding for themes and categories emerging from the data in the context within which it appeared. The environmental chapters of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) were used for data interpretation. Findings: The findings of the study illustrated the role of CDWs in facilitating livelihood opportunities for disabled youth. Five themes that emerged were related to CDWs’ own experience of disability and rural environments, their knowledge and experience in facilitating livelihoods; their practices and strategies; the barriers to participation experienced by disabled youth; and lastly, the CDWs’ suggestions for increasing participation and inclusion of disabled youth in livelihood opportunities. The findings established that CDWs were involved in facilitating access to health facilities and assistive devices as well as education and skills development. Some strategies used were advocacy, networking, information dissemination, role modelling and follow-ups on former students. The barriers identified were inadequate disability policy; absence of disability friendly public… Advisors/Committee Members: Lorenzo, Theresa (advisor), Van Pletzen, Ermien (advisor).

2. Moller, Natalie. Teaching communicative competence in Health Sciences Education: An analysis of medical students' first biopsychosocial interview in a clinical setting.

Degree: Image, School of Education, 2017, University of Cape Town

Objective: Communicative competence is recognised as essential for establishing an effective doctorpatient relationship. A Primary Health Care-led curriculum places this established relationship at the heart of all interactions and interventions between the patient and the health professional. Medical students at the University of Cape Town are taught in the Clinical Skills Department how to communicate and interact with patients in the pre-clinical years of training using primarily role play. This study examines how medical students transform classroom-based teaching into authentic clinical practice that follows Primary Health care principles in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the Clinical Skills strategy for teaching communicative competence. Methodology: Video recordings of three authentic clinical interviews conducted by medical students taking their first comprehensive biopsychosocial interview in a clinical area were analysed. This data was supported by scrutiny of the intended learning outcomes of all pre-clinical courses in which aspects of communication competence was taught as well as teaching observations made of the students within the classroom Conclusion: The study revealed that although the students could structure a biopsychosocial interview the nuances of building a professional relationship with the patient as envisioned in a Primary Health Care-led curriculum proved difficult for them. These findings suggest that using a single pedagogical method in the Clinical Skills department, namely role play, may not be sufficient for teaching medical students how to place the needs of the patient first above their need to learn, diagnose and treat the patient.

3. Kendal, Charmaine Allana. Everyone has a view of literacy : learners' perceptions of literacy and their practices at home and at school.

Degree: Image, Centre for Applied Language and Literacy Studies and Services in Africa, 2007, University of Cape Town

This is an ethnographic study of how learners write about, speak about, depict and value their literacy activities at home and how this links with their performance at school. It also examines the shift in learners' perceptions of literacy through their involvement in the research project. The theoretical framework for the research is drawn from the New Literacy Studies with its emphasis on the autonomous and ideological models ofliteracy (as formulated by Street) and on literacy as situated practice. The data is a series of literacy activities, of seven learner profiles made up of their writing, literacy inventories, photographic depictions, focus group discussions, semi structured interviews, and tasks assessed in the formal academic domain. Critical Discourse Analysis is used as a tool for the analysis of some of the data and traces the similarities and differences in the kinds of literacy activities that learners engage in, ranging from homework to hobbies, cell phones, conversations, computer games and so forth. Interpretation of the data also draws on Gee's theory of primary and secondary Discourses. Advisors/Committee Members: Van Pletzen, Ermien (advisor).
