introduction A two-stage pilot project Two general hospitals and six wards with the East Sussex Healthcare Trust in the UK Short focused observation, six item questionnaires and follow up two weeks post completion of the implementation Three themes were concluded to have come from the study which included increased visibility and patient contact time, patient experience and staff experience. Study found it is not how the round was completed however on how it was provided. Although mixed opinions
section describes the major procedures that will be used in carrying out the research. This study is multi-site mixed method case study that will employ a Concurrent Triangulation Mixed-Method design. Using a multisite mixed methods approach, the study will strive to appraise selected peri-urban settlements situated on the fringes of Port Harcourt. 3.1.1 A Multisite Mixed Methods Approach A Multi-site case study investigates a defined, contemporary phenomenon that is common to two or more real world
births and the population growth declined from 5.7 percent in 1960 to 1.5 percent in 2011. (Population Policies in Asia) In 2013, China’s annual population growth was 5.0 percent, which decreased by a lot compared to 1.6 percent in 1980, showing a very sharp reduction. (World Bank) The fertility rate in China fell from 2.63 births per women in 1980 to 1.61 in 2009 well below the replacement level of 2.1. (World Bank) Therefore, their main goal has been met successfully and their decline in birth and fertility

Besides research
The ever increasing demand for food and other basic needs has put a lot of pressure on the plant genetic resources (PGR) and diversity particularly in agricultural sector in terms of addressing the accompanied challenges associated with increasing crop productivity. The utilization of PGR in agriculture has not only brought about profound changes in the crop productivity and quality, but has also opened up newer and unforeseen potential vistas including improvement of novel traits by domestication
