We do not share any of your information to anyone. When it comes to essay writing, an in-depth research is a big deal. The final list of five dimensions and their concise definitions are as follows:. In the questionnaires the dimensions are divided into a item, 7-point scale. Dimensions may not be regarded as equally important. It can help a wide range of service and retailing organisations in assessing consumer expectations about and perceptions of service quality.
It can also help in pinpointing areas requiring managerial attention and action to improve service quality. Moreover, it is possible to ascertain those elements of services in which the gap between expectations and perceptions is widest. The application of this instrument and the results of measurement allows possibilities of more specific management action to redress perceived shortcomings.
Although well-developed and extensively used in USA, studies are only just commencing utilising the methodology within the UK and Finland. USA General Sample . Scottish -Public Library Service . Dalrymple, Donnelly, Wisniewski and Curry . Scottish -Home Help Service . Vaasa,Finland Outpatients [Jan-Feb ]. Note the similarity of the European data when compared with the American data.
Note also the overall similarity of the UK and the Finnish data. However, there are differences which are disguised within the data: The SERVQUAL methodology goes some way towards meeting the objection, noted before, that the issues raised in any instrument inevitably reflect the interests of the producers rather than the ultimate consumers of services, including health. The standardised nature of the questions means that the instrument is particularly useful in comparative studies, such as a comparisons between different industries, societies or time periods.
The essential simplicity of the approach, combined with the fact that it specifically relativises the context of satisfaction by addressing the issue of prior expectations, may be an explanation for its extensive use as a quality metric for service type industries.
However, two fundamental objections can be made which may severely limit the potential of this type of approach - one on the conceptual level and the other on the methodology actually deployed. The weight given to the measurement of expectations implies that consumers or patients in this instance approach their encounters with medical professionals with a set of clearly articulated expectations. The concept of a disease trajectory is evident in standard medical practice but in social scientific terms the notion of trajectory approaches the transactions in a more dynamic way, such that expectations of the next encounter are likely to be a function of previous encounters.
Typically, when patients present themselves to clinical staff with a problem that requires resolution, then they are entering into a series of transactions which may involve dozens of different professionals extending over several years or, indeed, a life-time.
One of the most typical trajectories might be as follows:. To attempt to capture the intricacies of such dynamics by the use of a single snapshot type instrument would appear to be over-ambitious. It has observed several times before that expectations might not be fully formed at the point of first contact with clinical staff and may be free-floating or even epi-phenomenal in that expectations start to arise out of the dynamics of the interactions with clinical staff [Locker and Dunt, ; Avis, Bond and Arthur, ; Linder-Pelz, ].
Measures of patient satisfaction are typically frozen in one point of time and do not perhaps cannot acknowledge the important of trajectories in the measurement of satisfaction. The use and abuse of rating scales.
As Blalock  explains:. For example if we had the following relationships:. There is, therefore, an assumption that there is a deeper reality which it is the aim of the analyst to discover - classical because traces of this approach can be found in the writings of Aristotle and of Euclid. Whatever point on the scale is adopted, then we can assume that we can make statements which assign a degree of ordering but we cannot get involved in the mathematical operations of subtraction of one measure from another.
What kind of rating scales do individuals carry around in their heads? This critical area is under-researched, given the prevalence of rating scales in many different fields of social enquiry. In an attempt to throw some empirical light upon the question, the author gathered the following data from opportunistic samples of undergraduates:.
An alternative approach might be to follow that offered by Kind et. The use of magnitude scaling. One possible solution to the philosophical and technical problems encountered above is to deploy the concept of magnitude scaling. In such an approach, drawn from classical psychophysics [Lodge, ], it is possible to:. The advantages of magnitude scaling lie in the fact that the scales are subject rather than analyst inferred. One of these is the fact that the scale is standardised on a population which may not reflect the actual sample or target population of the survey.
The quantitative analysis of open-ended responses. A more obvious way to measure the distribution of patient responses is to capture responses by the use of the most open-ended questions possible and then chart the distribution of the responses. The two factors mentioned that accounted for more than all other factors combined were the overall friendliness of the staff and the quality of the communication with the consultant. When the doctor tries to explain things to you and talks things through.
This can help to alleviate my worries Some patients referred to the totality of the transactions that they held with clinic staff:. Nothing is too much trouble for them. You cannot really fault them at all.. After the friendliness of the staff and the communication with the consultant, the absence of a long waiting time was the third most mentioned factor:. Here, standard content analysis is used to measure the different types of responses.
These are then diagrammed using any statistical software package in this case. The traditional instruments for the analysis of patient satisfaction are still being deployed, despite the many criticisms that have been made of them. This paper indicates the possibilities and the problems associated with deploying a conventional and widely known method of gap analysis such as SERVQUAL.
The paper concludes by indicating that it is quite possible to collect and to analyse data which is consumer rather than producer-led and to deploy some of the tools of quantitative analysis associated with more conventional approaches in this area.
This document was actually written in the middle of the night when I had a quick brain-storm thinking about the major elements of a Ph. Plan of chapters with key bullet points. Within a day or so, the initial doodlings were tidied up into a series of chapter headings, with a few bullet points under each to indicate the major divisions of each chapter.
You should work on your own FYP plan as soon as you have undertaken the preliminary reading and present it a copy of it to your tutor at the start of your supervision.
In practice, such plans are often revised as you make progress through the FYP.. Some chapters might get too large and have to be split into two whilst others, on reflection, can sensibly be combined into one. Title page of completed dissertation.

A literature review is an account of what has been published on a topic by accredited scholars and researchers. Occasionally you will be asked to write one as a separate assignment sometimes in the form of an annotated bibliography--see the bottom of the next page , but more often it is part of the introduction to an essay, research report, or thesis.
In writing the literature review, your purpose is to convey to your reader what knowledge and ideas have been established on a topic, and what their strengths and weaknesses are. As a piece of writing, the literature review must be defined by a guiding concept e. It is not just a descriptive list of the material available, or a set of summaries.
Besides enlarging your knowledge about the topic, writing a literature review lets you gain and demonstrate skills in two areas:. A literature review must do these things:. What is the specific thesis, problem, or research question that my literature review helps to define? What type of literature review am I conducting?
What is the scope of my literature review? What types of publications am I using e. What discipline am I working in e.
How good was my information seeking? Has it been narrow enough to exclude irrelevant material? Have I critically analysed the literature I use? Instead of just listing and summarizing items, do I assess them, discussing strengths and weaknesses?
Have I cited and discussed studies contrary to my perspective? Will the reader find my literature review relevant, appropriate, and useful? Is it clearly defined? Is its significance scope, severity, relevance clearly established? Could the problem have been approached more effectively from another perspective?
What is the relationship between the theoretical and research perspectives? Does the author include literature taking positions she or he does not agree with? How accurate and valid are the measurements? Is the analysis of the data accurate and relevant to the research question? Are the conclusions validly based upon the data and analysis? In material written for a popular readership, does the author use appeals to emotion, one-sided examples, or rhetorically-charged language and tone?
Is there an objective basis to the reasoning, or it the author merely "proving" what he or she already believes? How does the author structure the argument? Can you "deconstruct" the flow of the argument to see whether or where it breaks down logically e.
In what ways does this book or article contribute to our understanding of the problem under study, and in what ways is it useful for practice? What are the strengths and limitations? How does this book or article relate to the specific thesis or question I am developing? A literature review is a piece of discursive prose, not a list describing or summarizing one piece of literature after another.
Instead, organize the literature review into sections that present themes or identify trends, including relevant theory. You are not trying to list all the material published, but to synthesize and evaluate it according to the guiding concept of your thesis or research question. If you are writing an annotated bibliography, you may need to summarize each item briefly, but should still follow through themes and concepts and do some critical assessment of material.
Use an overall introduction and conclusion to state the scope of your coverage and to formulate the question, problem, or concept your chosen material illuminates. Usually you will have the option of grouping items into sections--this helps you indicate comparisons and relationships. You may be able to write a paragraph or so to introduce the focus of each section. Harvard System - 2-page Quick Guide. In a popular study, Harvey , p.
