  • Contamination
  • Soft sediments are often hotspots of chemical contamination and a thorough ecotoxicological assessment of this habitat can help to identify the causes of stress and to improve the health of the respective ecosystem. (environmental-expert.com)
  • Assess
  • Some organisations use the risk outputs to assess the implied cost to avert a fatality (ICAF) which can be used to set quantified criteria for what is an unacceptable risk and what is tolerable. (wikipedia.org)
  • tools
  • Read Recent Article on How Fall Risk Assessments tools in elderly might lack validity because they don't take into account how elderly will have good and bad days. (painmuse.org)
  • Tools that are currently employed in risk assessment are often sufficient, but model complexity and limitations of computational power can tether risk assessors to involve more causal connections and account for more Black Swan event outcomes. (wikipedia.org)
  • A health risk assessment (also referred to as a health risk appraisal and health & well-being assessment) is one of the most widely used screening tools in the field of health promotion and is often the first step in multi-component health promotion programs. (wikipedia.org)
  • It analyzed recidivism risk scores calculated by one of the most commonly used tools, the Northpointe COMPAS system, and looked at outcomes over two years, and found that only 61% of those deemed high risk actually committed additional crimes during that period and that African-American defendants were far more likely to be given high scores that white defendants. (wikipedia.org)
  • However
  • In reality, however, it is nearly impossible to break the iron triangle among politicians, scientists (in this case, risk assessors), and advocates and media. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, with this limitation it also cannot value any effects other than the number of human lives lost - including non-fatal human diseases, effects on non-human species, and effects on human activities and enjoyment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Considerable losses of life and property, however, could be avoided through better information about the risk and onset of disasters, improved risk assessment, early warning, and disaster monitoring. (wikipedia.org)
  • gaps
  • A properly completed security assessment should provide documentation outlining any security gaps between a project design and approved corporate security policies. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • While their use is recommended in clinical practice guidelines, they are only moderately effective in predicting bleeding risk and don't perform well in predicting hemorrhagic stroke. (wikipedia.org)
  • climate change
  • It also said: "Very conservatively, 90 Australian animal species have so far been identified at risk from climate change, including mammals, insects, birds, reptiles, fish and amphibians from all parts of Australia. (wikipedia.org)
  • current
  • The nature of frail or acutely ill older people in hospital is that their falls risk is often variable over time as they develop and recover from inter-current illness, postural instability, delirium, hypotension etc. (painmuse.org)
  • EBT has the potential to address concerns in the toxicological community about the limitations of current approaches. (wikipedia.org)
  • insight
  • Knowing this metabolic interaction gives insight for a preventive nutrition strategy based on the health risk assessment biomarker, the%n-6 in tissue HUFA (Equation 1). (biomedcentral.com)
  • integrity
  • There is a need for scientific accountability and integrity when reporting risk to communities. (rmmlf.org)
  • systematic
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention define a HRA as: "a systematic approach to collecting information from individuals that identifies risk factors, provides individualised feedback, and links the person with at least one intervention to promote health, sustain function and/or prevent disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Scientists have made progress in their efforts to apply systematic reviews to evaluate the evidence for associations between environmental toxicants and human health risks. (wikipedia.org)
  • general
  • The incidence of stroke associated with AF is 3 to 5 percent per year in the absence of anticoagulation, which is significantly higher compared to the general population without AF (relative risk 2.4 in men and 3.0 in women). (wikipedia.org)
  • health
  • The principal objective of the study was to analyse five health-risk assessment strategies and health indicators used in the five regions participating in the Advancing Care Coordination and Telehealth Deployment (ACT) programme ( http://www.act-programme.eu ). (bmj.com)
  • A health risk assessment (HRA) is a health questionnaire, used to provide individuals with an evaluation of their health risks and quality of life. (wikipedia.org)
  • Medicaid assessments ask questions about health-care access, availability of food, and living conditions. (wikipedia.org)
  • This culminated in the publication of How to Practice Prospective Medicine in 1970 - a guide for practising physicians, which outlined the health risk assessment questionnaire, risk computations and patient feedback strategies. (wikipedia.org)
  • This proliferation coincided with the rapid growth in interest in corporate health promotion programs as awareness developed on health risks and for-profit vendors monetized the programs. (wikipedia.org)
  • control
  • Control of heart rate and rhythm are principally used to achieve the former, while anticoagulation may be employed to decrease the risk of stroke. (wikipedia.org)
