OBJECTIVES: In policy studies, an enduring research question is why some issues are taken seriously while others never become a central focus of policy making. This study aims to analyse the predecision stage of policy making and examines the position of oral health on the broader health policy agenda. METHODS: A study of networks of influence in health policy in the state of Victoria Australia is used to examine the health policy agenda, and the position of oral health within the broader health policy agenda. Social network concepts were used to structure the data collection. RESULTS: Combining an assessment of who is seen to be influential with an examination of the issues they are interested in provides insights into how influence helps shape the policy agenda and how t...

*  Global public policy networks
... 'Global public policy networks' are what may be considered a new actor in the stage of world affairs. A non-state entity in that they are not states, and not necessarily incorporated in the legal sense, they may take on an international role, even without the formal status of an international or multilateral organization/institution. These networks are comprised by various actors from civil society, governments, government agencies, industry, industry groups, and perhaps multilateral organizations/institutions. Their activities cover the range of steps in the policy process, beyond to policy proposals or lobbying, including agenda setting, policy formulation, negotiation, rule making, coordination, implementation, and evaluation. Their expertise can often play an important role in global debates and norm establishment. The basis for scholarship on GPPNs can be seen to be set by Robert Keohane and Joseph Nye, as well as Anne-Marie Slaughter. While their status and role in the development of norms in the t...

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...

Engaging Stakeholders Publics in Safeguarding Tree Health: Co-produced Knowledge Alongside Conflicting Policy Agendas. 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. Current policy is neither efficient nor delivering good human and environmenta...

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. 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...

(1/1382) Animal-to-human organ transplants--a solution or a new problem?

Xenotransplantation is seen by some mainly as an opportunity and by others mainly as a danger. It could help overcome the shortage of organs from human donors, but it raises a number of questions, particularly about safety, ethics and human nature. This article reviews the progress of research, debate and decision-making in this area.  (+info)

(2/1382) Developing communality: family-centered programs to improve children's health and well-being.

Despite decades of enormous investment in research and public programs, the United States continues to face pandemics of preventable health problems such as low birth weight, teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, and interpersonal violence. With some justification, these problems have been blamed on the failings of families. The reasons why families may function poorly in their child-rearing roles have not been coherently or vigorously addressed by our social policies; sometimes these policies have aggravated the problems. This paper provides background to allow a better understanding of families' role in the social determination of children's health, and argues for programs and policies that assist families through the creation of social supports embedded in communities that are characterized by trust and mutual obligation.  (+info)

(3/1382) The health impact of economic sanctions.

Embargoes and sanctions are tools of foreign policy. They can induce a decline in economic activity in addition to reducing imports and untoward health effects can supervene, especially among older persons and those with chronic illnesses. Often, violations of the rights of life, health, social services, and protection of human dignity occur among innocent civilians in embargoed nations. This paper examines the effects of embargoes and sanctions against several nations, and calls for studies to determine ways in which economic warfare might be guided by the rule of humanitarian international law, to reduce the effects on civilians. It suggests that the ability to trade in exempted goods and services should be improved, perhaps by establishing uniform criteria and definitions for exemptions, operational criteria under which sanctions committees might function, and methods for monitoring the impact of sanctions on civilian populations in targeted states, particularly with regard to water purity, food availability, and infectious-disease control. Prospective studies are advocated, to generate the data needed to provide better information and monitoring capacity than presently exists.  (+info)

(4/1382) Focus on adolescent pregnancy and childbearing: a bit of history and implications for the 21st century.

Early childbearing in the United States has roots in the past; is the focus of intense partisan debate at the present time; and will have demographic, social, and economic ramifications in the future. It is an extremely complex issue, for which its associated problems have no easy or simple answers. Early parenthood is viewed as a social problem that has defied public policy attempts to stem its growth. It has become the focus of concern primarily for three reasons: (1) sexual activity has increased sharply, most recently among the youngest teens; (2) out-of-wedlock childbearing has risen among all teenagers, regardless of age; and (3) the issue of welfare. A review of statistics highlights the problem and discussion focuses on means of mitigating the negative effects of early childbearing.  (+info)

(5/1382) Pesticides and immunosuppression: the risks to public health.

There is substantial experimental, epidemiological and other evidence that many pesticides in widespread use around the world are immunosuppressive. This poses a potentially serious health risk in populations highly exposed to infectious and parasitic diseases, subject to malnutrition, and inadequately serve by curative health programmes. An expanded programme of research is needed to investigate this potential risk and to design precautionary measures.  (+info)

(6/1382) Reform follows failure: II. Pressure for change in the Lebanese health sector.

This paper describes how, against a background of growing financial crisis, pressure for reform is building up in the Lebanese health care system. It describes the various agendas and influences that played a role. The Ministry of Health, backed by some international organizations, has started taking the lead in a reform that addresses both the way care is delivered and the way it is financed. The paper describes the interventions made to prepare reform. The experience in Lebanon shows that this preparation is a process of muddling through, experimentation and alliance building, rather than the marketing of an overall coherent blueprint.  (+info)

(7/1382) Role of technology assessment in health benefits coverage for medical devices.

With the profusion of new medical technology, managed care organizations are faced with the challenge of determining which medical devices and services warrant health benefits coverage. To aid in this decision-making process, managed care companies turn to technology assessment, a process that differs from the Food and Drug Administration's review of medical devices. Health plans typically use a structured approach to implementing coverage requirements in employer group benefits contracts and use technology assessment to evaluate the scientific evidence of effectiveness to support coverage decisions. Also important is the societal context for decisions regarding coverage for new technologies and the options being considered by policy makers for accountability in technology assessment by private insurers and health plans.  (+info)

(8/1382) The limited state of technology assessment for medical devices: facing the issues.

Medical devices are an integral part of clinical practice and account for a substantial proportion of the national health budget. Clinical testing and regulation of medical devices, however, is vastly different from and inferior to the testing and regulation of drugs. As managed care organizations begin to exert controls on device use, providers are being caught between the policies of their organizations and the demands of device manufacturers and patients, who want wider access to devices. We outline several reasons for the poor state of medical device evaluations and the dangers of using devices without adequate information, and include the recently developed device assessment and reporting guidelines created by the Task Force on Technology Assessment of Medical Devices.  (+info)

Why are obesity rates higher in rural America than in Cities? What are the best way to reduce those rates?


According to the Surgeon General, obesity rates in rural America are higher than those in urban areas.  Anyone who has taken a cross-country road trip has seen this first hand.  Do you have a productive public policy suggestion that may reduce obesity rates in rural America?  All suggestions are welcome.
----------

It may not seem obvious but the answer is because of economics.  I'll explain in 2 parts:

The US economy has undergone several shifts.  Early on it was primarilly agrarian based.  With the industrial revolution this changed, and it became more consumer good based.  And even now it is phasing out of that slowly into a more service based economy.  During these changes, with the increase in machinery, it became more and more difficult to scrape out a living in the countryside as a farmer or in a support position to farmers(eg. a guy who runs the local store selling to farmers).  The good paying jobs ended up being "in the city."  And people moved to the city for those good paying jobs.  This process actually makes life harder economically for the remaining rural population!  And up to and through today people living in the rural areas of the US are generally in less well paying jobs while paying more for similar services and goods available in the city.

OK that was the first part.  Now the second part.

So you have a real tight budget to pay for food to live upon.  The simple fact of the matter is - fattening food is cheaper per amount than healthy food in most cases.  And sure there may be seasonal things which are cheaper, but just go to a mcdonalds menu.  You can buy a double cheeseburger for 1 dollar - or the non breaded chicken filet (about the same amount of sandwich)for like 3 dollars.  Similarly, you can buy a few TV dinners for 1-2 bucks a piece, or you can buy the raw chicken, instant mashed potatoes, and corn, etc. at a cost factor of maybe 1.5 to 2 times as much as the TV dinners. (not even thinking about cooking/preparing time involved)  

So it all comes down to simple economics - whether you have the cash to pay a little more to eat healthy and whether you have the time to spend to prepare said healthy foods.


What are some alternatives to abortion?


I know Adoption, but I need 2 or 3 more. I'm doing this public policy project and the only alternative that pops up is adoption. I would love the people! and if you could include some links to wedsites! <3 thanks!
----------

The only other alternatives to abortion are adoption or keeping the baby.


Is there any other websites or forums where you can ask questions about the adoption process?


I'm fine with leaving this website to the anti adoption people and people who want to change public policy because basically that's the only people who use it. I think all the people who support adoption have gone somewhere else? Anybody know where else we can go to get info?
----------

If you don't want to see adoption from all points, then you are right...this isn't the place for you.  I started out here not knowing anything from an adoptees point of view.  Pretty scary since I adopted 5 kids.  I thought everyone here was mean and cruel with the exception of Freckle Face.  But then a tragedy happened:  my kids first mother (who I was close to) died at the age of 30.  I couldn't wrap my head around how much I missed her and how much my kids were going to miss out on without her being in our lives.  I was an absolute mess and had just taken on her other two children that were still in her custody.  So I turned to this forum for advice on how to deal with it all.  And I was so comforted by the words of all these "anti adoption people".  I can honestly say that the same people I felt attacked by before her death, were the ones to help me get through it.  It's been a month now and I am forever changed.  My kids lives are forever changed.  Nothing will ever be how we imagined it and seven precious, beautiful children have depended on me to give them hope that everything will be okay.  I would not have had the hope to give them without the support I received here.

You say I am judgmental.  I think that is the pot calling the kettle black.  If you stick around, you might get to know some really awesome people.  But if you leave, you might be unprepared when your children get older and feel exactly like these "anti adoption people".  Clearly your choice.


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.

What could be the death toll of alternative medicine?


While no accurate figures are generally kept, one country's unfortunate public health policy could give us an insight into the level of unnecessary deaths attributable to alternative medicine.
