Introduction: Historically, fox control in Australia has been conducted by individuals in an ad hoc manner, with limited cooperation between neighbouring landholders. Since the 1990s, large-scale baiting programs involving cooperative groups have been promoted to more effectively limit the impact of fox predation. Benefits to biodiversity from this landscapescale approach to fox control have been demonstrated by many conservation programs across Australia. However, it has been difficult to prove that this approach is also effective on farms, due to logistical problems in doing long.
Process: Fox management programs were observed across 4.5 million hectares in regional NSW over an eight-year period. The amount of 1080 bait laid in the programs was used as the indicator of how much effort was put into fox control. Baiting data was gathered from the 1080 poisons register, which is kept by each agency that handles 1080 in NSW. Lamb survival data was collected from 1,034 properties over the eight-year period, using postal and/or phone surveys. Data were standardised to remove the influence of other factors on lamb survival such as birth weight, litter size, maternal nutrition and exposure to bad weather. Keep reading…

A Study report for Key Influence on Nursing Students Experience of Belongingness
Introduction: Belongingness is a phenomenon of importance to nursing students and to those involved in their education. For the majority of the participants in this study, the duration and structure of clinical placementswas a key influence on their experienceof belongingness. Students from three universities (two in Australia and one in the United Kingdom) emphasised the importance of having adequate time to settle in, so they could familiarise themselves with the personnel, culture and practices of each unit or ward they were assigned to.
They described the uncertainly that surrounded their clinical placement experiences during this settling in phase and how they often felt lost and unsure of themselves, not knowing staff, patients or ward routines. Once settled, students often progressed from feeling like an outsider to feeling like an accepted member of the nursing team. Importantly, students felt that until they were settled and comfortable in the clinical environment they were unable to confidently engage with learning opportunities. Keep reading…

Introduction: Modern, efficient infrastructure underpins the economic health of all nations, supporting the economy, improving productivity, and providing access to opportunities to build stronger communities. As economies grow and populations expand, so too does the scale of demand on the infrastructure that supports daily life.Improving infrastructure networks can be a hugely expensive task.
New railways, roads, desalination plants, power stations and broadband connections can cost hundreds of millions, and often, billions of dollars. At the same time, their impact is equally huge: transforming neighbourhoods and cities; underpinning water security; and powering our homes, factories and offices.Getting the delivery of such infrastructure right is therefore an issue of real importance. Cost overruns can run into hundreds of millions of dollars; a poorly specified project can fail to meet the objectives set out for the investment. As a result, improving infrastructure delivery is now a key priority for governments and goveent agencies across Australia.
