Government policy clouds outlook for port volumes in 2013. Friday, March 29, 2013 Walter Kemmsies, chief economist of Moffatt Nichol, said Thursday he is forecasting import cargo volumes in the peak season this year could be 5 percent higher than in 2012, but cautioned the economic outlook is cloudy because of government policy uncertainty. One of several speakers at the Port of Long Beach’s annual Pulse of the Port Peak Season Forecast , Kemmsies indicated 2013 GDP growth forecasts range between 0.4 percent and 4.4 percent. As a result import container volumes could grow by as much as 12 percent or fall 6 percent. businesses and ports “need to be on your toes to support exports as well as imports.” Kemmsies said last year U.S. container volumes are still below the 2007 peak. He said it was still a very good resu...

... CONTACT: Stanford University News Service 650 723-2558. New policies place health-safety burden on supervisors. STANFORD -- Adoption of Stanford University's new, comprehensive health and safety policies sends a message to supervisory personnel, both faculty and staff -- "It's your job." According to Tom McBride, director of Environmental Health and Safety, the new policies reflect an ever stronger commitment to sound health and safety practices at Stanford. The new policies also make provisions to reward or discipline employees for compliance or non-compliance with health and safety practices. Faculty and staff supervisors don't necessarily need to be experts on all health and safety issues, McBride said. "What is required is that supervisors know what hazards are in their workplace, train their employees to work with these hazards, and assure that they comply with Stanford's health and safety policies," McBride said. "The new policies, improved training programs and the university's increased financial...

*  New Policy Would Establish Anthrax-Shot Exemptions
... European Stars and Stripes December 9, 1999 Pg. 3 New Policy Would Establish Anthrax-Shot Exemptions By Chuck Vinch, Washington bureau WASHINGTON —The Defense Department is getting close to unveiling a new policy that will exempt troops who are getting close to retirement and separation from having to begin taking the anthrax vaccine, officials said Wednesday. The mandatory vaccination program was launched more than 20 months ago, but there has never been a broad policy in place to indicate how to deal with troops who are closing in on the end of their service. Defense Department officials could not explain why such a policy was not built into the program from the start. Virginia Stefanokis, a spokeswoman for the Army surgeon general’s office that is overseeing the militarywide program, said a final decision on how far out the exemption will be set has not yet been made. But it will probably fall in line with other end-of-term policies, most of which put the cutoff at 180 days prior to retirement or sepa...

Multinational food, drink and alcohol companies are using strategies similar to those employed by the tobacco industry to undermine public health policies, health experts said Tuesday. In an international analysis of involvement by so-called "unhealthy commodity" companies in health policy-making, researchers from Australia, Britain, Brazil and elsewhere said self-regulation was failing and it was time the industry was regulated more stringently from outside. Writing in The Lancet medical journal, the researchers cited industry documents they said revealed how companies seek to shape health legislation and avoid regulation. They cited analysis of published research which found systematic bias from industry funding: articles sponsored exclusively by food and drinks companies were between four and eight times more likely to have conclusions that ...

Posted at January 9, 2014 By : rsswp Categories : Announcements, Call for Papers Comment: 0 Comment. . Confirmation that Chalara fraxinea ash dieback had been introduced into the UK in 2012 triggered an unprecedented level of media coverage and public debate about the threat to trees, woodland and rural landscapes from a new generation of invasive tree pests and pathogens. The government response has been an object lesson in stakeholder and public engagement, with extensive consultation on the best way to manage the risks from this and other likely disease threats and a determined effort to involve publics in disease monitoring and surveillance through ‘citizen science’ initiatives of various sorts. This apparent commitment to bringing stakeholders and publics into a more co-produced and participatory policy response, however, sits uneasily alongside what some critics see as a reluctance ...

People's health is at risk because of the way British food is being produced and marketed, according to a report from a top team of academics. The report argues that public health - and the not the vested interests of the food and farming industry - should be the key factor which governs policy. It says that health issues have plunged food policy into crisis, and that the turmoil will continue unless the government re-thinks its approach.

Especially in Western Europe, extensive programmes have resulted in a good overview of all the effects - mostly negative - caused by acidifying substances. There is now consensus that types of acidification damage relate to the unique geography of an area: air pollution affects vegetation; acid aerosol the ozone layer. New in this volume, is the relation between scientific results of integrated research programmes and policy actions to prevent, reduce and limit the widespread damage caused by acidification.

*  The Genesis of Industrial Policy | Foundation for Economic Education
Contemporary proponents of industrial policy advocate many of the same economic policies that prevailed in Italy and Germany in the 1920s and ‘30s. In a statement that could have been written by one of the contemporary American proponents of industrial policy, the German newspaper Deutsche Volkswirt explained in 1933 that the purpose of these institutions was to “give private industry possibilities and tasks for far-reaching collaboration.” According to the Nazi National Economic Minister, “Our task is the limited one of coordinating with the present idea of national government the organization of the enormous field of German business administration.” As in the industrial policy literature, the words “cooperation” and “collaboration” were used repeatedly by German and Italian Fascists. The essence of early 20th-century German and Italian industrial policy and of contemporary industrial policy proposals was for government, business, and unions to attempt to “collaborate to coordinate” the economy in the public...

*  .. A Fresh Approach to Drugs – the UK Drug Policy Commission Report ..
A Fresh Approach to Drugs – the UK Drug Policy Commission Report. 15/10/2012. in Cannabis, Global Policy News, Policy, Research. The Beckley Foundation welcomes the report of the UK Drug Policy Commission published this week, a culmination of 6 years of in-depth analysis into all aspects of UK drug policy. The Commission, comprised of a distinguished multi-disciplinary panel of experts, has reached many of the same conclusions as those emerging from the work of the Beckley Foundation: that the 50 years of ‘War on Drugs’ has failed, that politicians need to accept that many individuals enjoy taking drugs, and that drug laws should be evidence-based and aimed at reducing harms. Included among their many recommendations for UK drug policy is decriminalisation of possession, with cannabis as a first step. The Beckley Foundation agrees, and might perhaps recommend that there is a further option which may yield a greater reduction of harm, namely adopting a regulated market for cannabis. With a decriminalised appr...

There is general confusion about what a correct PV string should look like. This page attempts to define a standard for packages in OpenEmbedded to follow. Whilst not mandatory, it is strongly recommended. OE's versioning policy aims to follow that from Debian and is hence compatible with ipkg. One key phrase to note is "The lexical comparison is a comparison of ASCII values modified so that all the letters sort earlier than all the non-letters." This means characters like + and - have a higher priority than alphanumeric characters. If in doubt, experiment with the ipkg-compare-versions program from ipkg-utils.

Abstract This document provides a set of proposed policies for the management of IPv6 address space, specifically concerning the allocation of address space allocated by Regional Internet Registries RIRs to organisations operating IPv6 networks. 3 Address Space Requirement for Initial Allocation It is proposed to recognise existing network infrastructure and address utilisation both IPv4 and IPv6. Case 3 - No existing IPv4 or IPv6 services Where IPv6 address space is required by an organisation which has no existing infrastructure, the address requirement will be assessed according to network architecture plans and other documentation provided to the RIR within the request process. 4 Size of Initial Allocation The amount of addresses allocated to an existing network, will be determined based on the existing infrastructure and address utilisation of that network. For new networks without existing infrastructure, it is proposed to establish a minimum allocation for IPv6 address space....

The Health bill : lack of coverage is a bad prognosis in Medicine in the media, NHS, Politics of healthcare. Health and Social Care Bill has apparently been carried. The government won with a majority of 65. Look at the ‘debate’ here – a sedate affair, with plenty of jolly laughing, a bit of sexism, and an aside about the wonders of complementary medicine thrown in. A sixth year debating society would have done better. Meantime, the Department of Health have provided a wishy washy and faint response to the 38 degrees criticism of the health bill, and Martin Beckford in the DT is pointing out that fixed beliefs held by ministers that private markets will be better for the NHS continue, despite droves of evidence to the contrary. Even more worrying is the Prime Ministers’ assertion that health professionals are for his reform s, despite the fact that representative bodies have rejected the bill, and the consistent voices of many thousands of doctors and nurses protesting against it.

*  Nothing Fails Like Success | Intercollegiate Review
This is not to suggest that obesity and other concerns that arise in market economies are never problems, but when they are, they are the problems of increasing prosperity that inevitably result from overcoming the far worse problems of poverty. The success of market incentives and freedom in effectively eliminating the threat of starvation has, in the minds of the public, been converted into a failure that is being used to justify further undermining the power of markets and freedom to continue replacing the problems of poverty with the problems of prosperity. Medical Care. The constant refrain is that the high cost of medical care is a failure of markets, which has become a serious problem—­indeed, another national crisis—demanding a government remedy. In fact, the cost of medical care is ­greatly overstated. People are confusing the increasing amount being spent on medical care with the costs of that care when claiming that medical costs are higher today than ever.

Covered California keeps its deadline. In a unanimous vote, the board that governs Covered California decided to keep the December 31 deadline that would force health insurers in the state to end existing health insurance plans that fail to meet ACA requirements for essential benefits. The board claimed that there was no benefit in extending that deadline that could affect over 1 million people in California, saying it could cause confusion about accessing affordable health care. The protection of consumers from poor health plans was also cited as reason for the decision. This comes after the Obama administration's plea to health providers nationwide that certain policies be extended for certain individuals whose policy cancel...

(1/4865) The use of targets to improve the performance of health care providers: a discussion of government policy.

The aim of this discussion paper is to examine the advantages and drawbacks of employing targets, or performance indicators, to improve the performance of those delivering health care services. The paper is based on an examination of two target-setting policies initiated by Government: the 1992 Health of the Nation strategy and the 1990 General Practitioners' Contract. It is argued that the introduction of both the General Practitioners' Contract and the Health of the Nation have indeed been accompanied by improvements in performance, however, there are a number of problems with targets. They tend to focus on those things that are most easily measured, and they may foster complacency on the part of providers who have already achieved upper target limits, and defensiveness on the part of those performing badly. National targets may skew local priorities; they may also be unrealistic and unattainable for particular, less privileged population groups. They may serve to widen inequalities in health, and can exacerbate the 'inverse care law' by encouraging providers to direct their efforts at the more advantaged sections of society, where such efforts are more likely to pay off in terms of overall improvements in the target level achieved. Finally, the achievement of some targets will not necessarily result in better health outcomes. The paper concludes that a target-setting approach to improving the quality of care must be based on the use of appropriate indicators, and must take account of differences between more and less advantaged sections of society.  (+info)

(2/4865) Cancer mortality by educational level in the city of Barcelona.

The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between educational level and mortality from cancer in the city of Barcelona. The data were derived from a record linkage between the Barcelona Mortality Registry and the Municipal Census. The relative risks (RR) of death and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) according to level of education were derived from Poisson regression models. For all malignancies, men in the lowest educational level had a RR of death of 1.21 (95% CI 1.13-1.29) compared with men with a university degree, whereas for women a significant decreasing in risk was observed (RR 0.81; 95% CI 0.74-0.90). Among men, significant negative trends of increasing risk according to level of education were present for cancer of the mouth and pharynx (RR 1.70 for lowest vs. highest level of education), oesophagus (RR 2.14), stomach (RR 1.99), larynx (RR 2.56) and lung (RR 1.35). Among women, cervical cancer was negatively related to education (RR 2.62), whereas a positive trend was present for cancers of the colon (RR 0.76), pancreas (RR 0.59), lung (RR 0.55) and breast (RR 0.65). The present study confirms for the first time, at an individual level, the existence of socioeconomic differences in mortality for several cancer sites in Barcelona, Spain. There is a need to implement health programmes and public health policies to reduce these inequities.  (+info)

(3/4865) Making Medicaid managed care research relevant.

OBJECTIVE: To help researchers better understand Medicaid managed care and the kinds of research studies that will be both feasible and of value to policymakers and program staff. The article builds on our experience researching Medicaid managed care to provide insight for researchers who want to be policy relevant. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We draw four lessons from our work on Medicaid managed care in seven states. First, these are complex programs that differ substantially across states. Second, each program faces common challenges and issues. The need to address common design elements involving program eligibility, managed care and provider contracting, beneficiary enrollment, education, marketing, and administration and oversight provides a vehicle that researchers can use to help understand states and to provide them with relevant insight. Third, well-designed case studies can provide invaluable descriptive insights. Such case studies suggest that providing effective descriptions of state programs and experience, monitoring information on program performance and tradeoffs, and insight on implementation and design are all valuable products of such studies that have considerable potential to be converted into policy-actionable advice. And fourth, some questions demand impact studies but the structure of Medicaid managed care poses major barriers to such studies. CONCLUSIONS: Many challenges confront researchers seeking to develop policy-relevant research on managed care. Researchers need to confront these challenges in turn by developing second-best approaches that will provide timely insight into important questions in a relatively defensible and rigorous way in the face of many constraints. If researchers do not, others will, and researchers may find their contributions limited in important areas for policy debate.  (+info)

(4/4865) Excess capacity: markets regulation, and values.

OBJECTIVE: To examine the conceptual bases for the conflicting views of excess capacity in healthcare markets and their application in the context of today's turbulent environment. STUDY SETTING: The policy and research literature of the past three decades. STUDY DESIGN: The theoretical perspectives of alternative economic schools of thought are used to support different policy positions with regard to excess capacity. Changes in these policy positions over time are linked to changes in the economic and political environment of the period. The social values implied by this history are articulated. DATA COLLECTION: Standard library search procedures are used to identify relevant literature. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Alternative policy views of excess capacity in healthcare markets rely on differing theoretical foundations. Changes in the context in which policy decisions are made over time affect the dominant theoretical framework and, therefore, the dominant policy view of excess capacity. CONCLUSIONS: In the 1990s, multiple perspectives of optimal capacity still exist. However, our evolving history suggests a set of persistent values that should guide future policy in this area.  (+info)

(7/4865) Latino children's health and the family-community health promotion model.

A majority of Latino children in the US live in poverty. However, unlike other poor children, Latino children do not seem to have a consistent association between poverty and poor health. Instead, many poor Latino children have unexpectedly good health outcomes. This has been labeled an epidemiologic paradox. This paper proposes a new model of health, the family-community health promotion model, to account for this paradox. The family-community health promotion model emphasizes the family-community milieu of the child, in contrast to traditional models of health. In addition, the family-community model expands the outcome measures from physical health to functional health status, and underscores the contribution of cultural factors to functional health outcomes. In this paper, we applied the family-community health promotion model to four health outcomes: low birthweight, infant mortality, chronic and acute illness, and perceived health status. The implications of this model for research and policy are discussed.  (+info)

(8/4865) Disease eradication and health systems development.

This article provides a framework for the design of future eradication programmes so that the greatest benefit accrues to health systems development from the implementation of such programmes. The framework focuses on weak and fragile health systems and assumes that eradication leads to the cessation of the intervention required to eradicate the disease. Five major components of health systems are identified and key elements which are of particular relevance to eradication initiatives are defined. The dearth of documentation which can provide "lessons learned" in this area is illustrated with a brief review of the literature. Opportunities and threats, which can be addressed during the design of eradication programmes, are described and a number of recommendations are outlined. It is emphasized that this framework pertains to eradication programmes but may be useful in attempts to coordinate vertical and horizontal disease control activities for maximum mutual benefits.  (+info)


what is the health insurance to cover penile implant surgery or penile vascular reconstruction surgery?


It is learnt that in India there is no health policy to cover male sexual dysfunction.Though it is important to bear child in a family, how this kind of surgical expense is discouraged in health cover of any  insurance.Kindly suggest any health insurance that cover male sexual dysfunction.
----------

I doubt there is any that will cover it.  They will probably consider that cosmetic surgery and most insurance companies won't cover that.  

I used to work in a pharmacy and most insurance companies won't even cover Viagra or any of the other brands for erectile dysfunction.


Can anyone suggest a policy topic for me relating to HPV vaccine in Canada?


Hi everyone, I am a student in a Public Health Policy Course (Public Health). I have to write a paper on a policy that has been implemented. We have to follow the whole policy process. I want to do mine on the implementation of the HPV vaccine. Does anyone have any further ideas for me as a specific topic I could pursue in this area?
----------

You might want to take a look at the controversy that has been sparked by the religious minority about Gardisal increasing sexual activity.  

Personally I think saying Gardisal will make girls have sex is like saying giving out needles at a needle exchange will make people want to do drugs.  


Is the health insurance policy number different for each person on the same health insurance plan?


I need to know this because I need my health insurance policy number and I don't know if it should be different.
I need the answer A.S.A.P.
First person with a logical answer gets best answer!

Is health services administration in healthcare or business?


Is health services administration in healthcare or business?
Which field is it in?

Im going to do my bachelors in Health Services Administration. But the problem is I dont know what to do after. I was thinking getting a joint degree in MHSA/MBA or get a masters in public health with a specilization in health policy/ management.

Which degree would be best?

And as for my title would the bachelors major be considered in healthcare or business? Is the hiring outlook good?
----------

Good Question.
http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos014.htm

It's Health Care Management and it requires the knowledge of business and health care administration. I think it is in it's own category.


Removing someone from a health insurance policy?


I was wondering how you would go about removing a person that you have covered under your employer health insurance policy.
The person is 18 and a full time student and is covered under her parents health insurance policy.
They want to remove her.
How long does it take?
Can they just call the insurance and say "hey I want to take her off now, today"
Or is there like paperwork you may have to file to fully remove the person??
BTW, it is CIGNA PPO in case that makes a difference.

I'm doing an assigment on Health Care policies of various countries. I am not from the US therefore  would appreciate some answers. Thank you
If there is , then what is the message in Michael Moore's SICKO ? I get the impression that the poor are not getting a good deal in health care

Yes, we have Medicare for everyone over 65 and disabled people under 65. We have Medicaid for poor people of all ages. We have state insurance for children even if the parents are not poor and make too much money to qualify for Medicaid.

Many people buy into the line that we have a health care crisis. Micheal Moore has an agenda to make money so he  presented a one sided story on the subject to sell movie tickets.
