Title Personal protection against biting insects and ticks Type Journal Article
Year 2011 Publication Parasite (Paris, France) Abbreviated Journal Parasite
Volume 18 Issue 1 Pages 93-111
Keywords Animals; *Arachnid Vectors; Bites and Stings/*prevention & control; Communicable Disease Control/*methods; Communicable Diseases/transmission; Humans; Insect Bites and Stings/prevention & control; Insect Repellents/administration & dosage; *Insect Vectors; Insecticide-Treated Bednets; Protective Clothing; Tick-Borne Diseases/prevention & control; *Ticks; Travel
Abstract Recent events with the first cases of local transmission of chikungunya and dengue fever virus in southern France by Aedes albopictus, adding to the nuisance and potential vectors that can be encountered when traveling in tropical or sub-tropical countries, has shown the value of a reflection on the Personal protection against vectors (PPAV). It is seen during an outbreak of vector-borne disease, or simply because of nuisance arthropods, that our fellow citizens try to protect themselves individually by using an arsenal of resources available on the market. Yet most of these means have been neither checked for effectiveness or safety tests, however, essential. Travellers, staff on mission or assignment, are looking for specific information on how to protect themselves or their families. Health workers had at their disposal so far indications that vary widely from one source to another. Therefore it seemed important to the Society of Travel Medicine (SMV) and the French Society of Parasitology (SFP) to initiate a reflection on this theme. This reflection took the form of recommendations for good practice, following the outline established by the French High Health Authority (HAS). The aim was to gather all relevant information, verified and validated and the format to be used not only by health personnel (doctors, pharmacists, nurses), but also by travel agents and individuals. This document highlights the need to take into account the risk of vector-borne diseases, some deadly, and the benefit of various methods of personal protection. The choice of methods is clearly oriented towards those whose effectiveness has been proven and potential risks assessed. The paper finally proposes two decision trees based on the transmission type (day or night) and kind of stay (short or roaming, long and steady). It concerns travellers, but also expatriates, residents and nomads.

Title Defining high risk in adult kidney transplantation Type Journal Article
Year 2009 Publication Progress in Transplantation (Aliso Viejo, Calif.) Abbreviated Journal Prog Transplant
Volume 19 Issue 3 Pages 252-258
Keywords Adult; Algorithms; Benchmarking/organization & administration; Blood Grouping and Crossmatching; Decision Trees; Donor Selection; Graft Rejection/*etiology/prevention & control; Graft Survival; Health Status; Humans; Kidney Transplantation/*adverse effects/immunology/psychology; Mental Health; Patient Care Team/*organization & administration; *Patient Selection; Risk Assessment/*organization & administration; Risk Factors; Risk Reduction Behavior; Tissue and Organ Procurement/*organization & administration; Treatment Outcome
Abstract BACKGROUND: Because identifiable factors contribute to allograft loss, and because no consensus has been reached on the definition of high risk, an interdisciplinary group of nurses, physicians, pharmacists, and social workers was convened in May 2008. OBJECTIVE: Participants sought to reach consensus about the current state of science and best practices related to the definition and management of high-risk kidney transplant recipients. METHODS: An expert facilitator with extensive experience in leading consensus teams guided consensus-building activities, which included discussion and small-group work. RESULTS: This consensus group conceptualized the definition of the “high-risk” kidney transplant recipient and provided information to guide the multidisciplinary team in their assessment of these patients before and after transplant. Three key areas, which were conceptualized as independent scales, had a substantial impact on outcomes: (1) transplant recipient medical factors, (2) donor and recipient immunological factors, and (3) transplant recipient psychosocial factors. Though depicted separately, alteration of a specific risk on one scale could influence some risk factors on another scale. In addition, the kidney allograft itself must be considered in the assessment of high risk. CONCLUSIONS: The continuum of risk described here should be useful to transplant clinicians in their assessment of high-risk adult kidney transplant patients, may aid centers in developing a more complete definition of high risk, and may lead to risk-reduction efforts.

Title Capacity of hospitals to partner with academia to meet experiential education requirements for pharmacy students Type Journal Article
Year 2008 Publication American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education Abbreviated Journal Am J Pharm Educ
Volume 72 Issue 5 Pages 117
Keywords
Abstract PURPOSE: Current hospital and health-system participation in and the future capacity for experiential education for pharmacy students was investigated. METHODS: An online survey of ASHP members identified as U.S. pharmacy directors was conducted to assess their current and future involvement in partnering with colleges and schools to meet the experiential education requirements for doctor of pharmacy students and the current status of the student learning experiences. Questionnaire items examined the factors on which expanded involvement in experiential education would depend, the nature of support provided by colleges and schools, the types of experiences available for students, respondents' perceptions of factors influencing the quality of experiential education, the value of experiential education to the sites, respondents' challenges and concerns about experiential education, and respondents' current capacity and projections for introductory and advanced experiences through 2012. RESULTS: Data from 549 respondents were analyzed. Most respondents indicated that they had conducted advanced experiences for their 2007 graduates and anticipated that they would continue to do so. Among the top challenges identified regarding advanced experiences were concerns about time to serve and be trained as preceptors and a lack of standardization and coordination among colleges and schools. Hospitals forecasting their future capacity to accommodate students indicated that their projections were highly dependent on the number of pharmacists at their hospitals. Many respondents noted that their capacity projections were tied to their ability to expand clinical services at their hospitals. CONCLUSION: A survey of pharmacy directors suggested an ability of U.S. hospitals to conduct advanced experiential education opportunities for pharmacy students through 2012 and to expand introductory experiences.
