Your core duties will include conducting two ethnographic studies of employee gentleness in care settings, qualitative data analysis and designing and running a small training programme on employee gentleness.  Central aims of the project are to develop the theory of employee gentleness, to understand the contexts in which employee gentleness can be fostered, and to develop and pilot an on-line training programme on employee gentleness to help practitioners learn about and reflect on their care giving.
