(MULTI) (PDF) – Our planet, our future | Directorate-General for Climate Action


Snap3.png

Climate change is one of the most serious challenges facing our world today. Our planet is experiencing significant and accelerated climate change that began over a century ago. Most scientists agree that the planet is warming up faster than ever because of the vast amount of greenhouse gases that humans are pumping into the atmosphere. This includes activities such as burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas), driving cars and cutting down forests. Many of us have seen – and even experienced – the effects of climate change. But it is not just about extreme weather like floods, droughts and hurricanes. Slower and less noticeable changes in our climate have the potential to completely alter the way we live. The good news is that in Paris in December 2015, 195 countries (practically the whole world) agreed the first ever legally-binding global deal to tackle climate change. In the EU and around the world, governments, companies and individuals are already working to tackle its causes and adapt to the changes it brings. We all have a part to play because climate change is a global problem which can affect each one of us. We all share one planet and the changes we make in one place can affect others far away. You could say our behaviour makes a lasting impression, like a footprint. So, through our actions and choices, each one of us can take steps to leave smaller footprints and help tackle climate change.

Available in all the official languages of the EU. Also in Chinese.

(MULTI) – IATE Term of the Week: Talanoa Dialogue | TermCoord


talanoa-dialogue.jpg

This week, we see the annual United Nation’s climate change conference (COP24) take place in Katowice, Poland, with the summit lasting from 2nd to 14th December. The aim of the conference involving the EU and its Member States, is to focus on tackling climate change, and one of the fundamental ways of ensuring the implementation of the Paris Agreement is through the Talanoa Dialogue.

The Talanoa Dialogue was one of the main outcomes of the previous summit held by the United Nations, COP23, that was presided by Fiji in Bonn, Germany. But what exactly is it, and how can it help strengthen climate action?

The word Talanoa is Fijian and relates to the notion of transparency: to share a story or have a conversation that is inclusive in nature, helping to lead to more successful decision making for all …

Οι γνώσεις για τη χρήση των φαρμάκων κατά το χρόνο κυκλοφορίας τους προέρχονται από τα δεδομένα των προεγκριτικών κλινικών δοκιμών, μετά το πέρας των οποίων εξακολουθούν να υπάρχουν επιστημονικά ερωτήματα προς διερεύνηση.

Ως εκ τούτου, είναι προφανές ότι η αποκτηθείσα εμπειρία στις συγκεκριμένες μελέτες σε ορισμένο αριθμό ασθενών, σε θεραπεία μικρής ή ενδιάμεσης διάρκειας, θα πρέπει να συμπληρωθεί με τα στοιχεία μετεγκριτικής χρήσης των φαρμάκων. Η ανίχνευση, αξιολόγηση, αναφορά και αντιμετώπιση των ανεπιθύμητων ενεργειών που θα προκύψουν από την ευρύτερη κλινική εφαρμογή των νέων φαρμάκων είναι δυνατή μόνο με τη συμμετοχή των επαγγελματιών υγείας (ιατρών και φαρμακοποιών κυρίως), των φαρμακευτικών εταιρειών και των οργανισμών φαρμάκων.

Η επιτήρηση της ασφαλούς χρήσης των φαρμάκων στο πλαίσιο της παροχής υπηρεσιών υγείας στα συστήματα υγείας επιτελείται μέσω της φαρμακοεπαγρύπνησης, του επιστημονικού τομέα παρακολούθησης της ασφάλειας των φαρμάκων, καθώς και των διαδικασιών ελαχιστοποίησης των ανεπιθύμητων ενεργειών και βελτίωσης των θεραπευτικών αποτελεσμάτων αυτών, ώστε να τεκμηριώνεται ότι για τα κυκλοφορούντα φάρμακα τα οφέλη υπερτερούν των κινδύνων.

Ο Ευρωπαϊκός Οργανισμός Φαρμάκων (ΕΜΑ) διαδραματίζει έναν κομβικό ρόλο για τη δημόσια υγεία στην Ευρώπη. Εντός της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης (ΕΕ), ο ΕΜΑ συντονίζει το Ευρωπαϊκό Σύστημα Φαρμακοεπαγρύπνησης και αποφασίζει για την ασφαλή και αποτελεσματική χρήση των φαρμάκων.

Patient safety narratives are a key element in clinical study reporting. We will look at current regulatory requirements regarding safety narratives, a proposed process for their development, and review and examine ways to simplify the reporting process. These procedures are aimed at reducing the burden of time and cost.

Patient safety narratives should be prepared for all phases of clinical studies, whether conducted in healthy volunteers or in patients with the disease/condition under study. For ease of reporting, we shall refer to patient safety narratives throughout this discussion (although narratives for healthy volunteers/subjects in Phase I studies should be included).

(EN) (PDF) – Manual of Diagnostic Ultrasound vol. 1 | Harald Lutz, Elisabetta Buscarini


Snap5

No medical treatment can or should be considered or given until a proper diagnosis has been established.

For a considerable number of years after Roentgen first described the use of ionizing radiation – at that time called ‘X-rays’ – for diagnostic imaging in 1895, this remained the only method for visualizing the interior of the body. However, during the second half of the twentieth century new imaging methods, including some based on principles totally different from those of X-rays, were discovered. Ultrasonography was one such method that showed particular potential and greater benefit than X-ray-based imaging.

During the last decade of the twentieth century, use of ultrasonography became increasingly common in medical practice and hospitals around the world, and several scientific publications reported the benefit and even the superiority of ultrasonography over commonly used X-ray techniques, resulting in significant changes in diagnostic imaging procedures.

With increasing use of ultrasonography in medical settings, the need for education and training became clear. Unlike the situation for X-ray-based modalities, no international and few national requirements or recommendations exist for the use of ultrasonography in medical practice. Consequently, fears of ‘malpractice’ due to insufficient education and training soon arose.

WHO took up this challenge and in 1995 published its first training manual in ultrasonography. The expectations of and the need for such a manual were found to be overwhelming. Thousands of copies have been distributed worldwide, and the manual has been translated into several languages. Soon, however, rapid developments and improvements in equipment and indications for the extension of medical ultrasonography into therapy indicated the need for a totally new ultrasonography manual.

The present manual is the first of two volumes. Volume 2 includes paediatric examinations and gynaecology and musculoskeletal examination and treatment…

Soon, however, rapid developments and improvements in equipment and indications for the extension of medical ultrasonography into therapy indicated the need for a totally new ultrasonography manual.

The manual (consisting of two volumes) has been written by an international group of experts of the World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB), well-known for their publications regarding the clinical use of ultrasound and with substantial experience in the teaching of ultrasonography in both developed and developing countries. The contributors (more than fifty for the two volumes) belong to five different continents, to guarantee that manual content represents all clinical, cultural and epidemiological contexts.

This new publication, which covers modern diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasonography extensively, will certainly benefit and inspire medical professionals in improving ‘health for all’ in both developed and emerging countries.

On November 26, 2018, NASA’s InSight lander reached Mars’ surface, on Elysium Planitia, an equatorial plain in the northern hemisphere. It has been travelling for more than 6 months and for over 300 million miles after initially launching from California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base. It will be the first spacecraft to study the Red Planet’s deep interior, where it will remain, unlike rovers that typically travel around space.

InSight is not doing this journey alone. In fact, 1.6 million people are joining them. Members of the public had the possibility to sign up and have their names inside a …

(MULTI) – IATE Term of the Week: reprisal | TermCoord


IATE-reprisal.jpg

Fear of reprisals is a very real concern for those who may be considering lifting the lid on malpractices in institutions (for example, regarding corruption or tax evasion), and this could then lead these whistle blowers to decide to not go ahead with revealing breaches that have taken place. But how big of a problem does that cause? According to a 2017 study that was carried out by the European Commission, this lack of whistle-blower protection has significant economic implications, estimating to cost the EU each year between €5.8 to €9.6 billion.

However, new EU legislation may change that.

On 20th November 2018, the Legal Affairs Committee MEPs gave their approval for draft legislation to be implemented that protects whistle-blowers in the EU from reprisals or …
