Health Protection

Health Protection [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Health Protection by David Conrad Book Summary:

Health Protection: Principles and practice is a practical guide for practitioners working at all levels in public health and health protection, including those with a non-specialist background. It is the first textbook in health protection to address all three domains within the field (communicable disease control; emergency preparedness, resilience and response (EPRR); and environmental public health) in a comprehensive and integrated manner. Written by leading practitioners in the field, the book is rooted in a practice-led, all-hazards approach, which allows for easy real-world application of the topics discussed. The chapters are arranged in six sections, which begin with an in-depth introduction to the principles of health protection and go on to illuminate the three key elements of the field by providing: case studies and scenarios to describe common and important issues in the practice of health protection; health protection tools, which span epidemiology and statistics, infection control, immunisation, disease surveillance, and audit and service improvement; and evidence about new and emerging health protection issues. It includes more than 100 health protection checklists (SIMCARDs), covering infections from anthrax to yellow fever, non-infectious diseases emergencies and environmental hazards. Written from first-hand experience of managing communicable diseases these provide practical, stand-alone quick reference guides for in-practice use. Both the topical content of Health Protection: Principles and practice, and the clearly described health protection principles the book provides, makes it a highly relevant resource for wider public health and health protection professionals in this continually evolving field.

Essentials for Health Protection

Health Protection [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Essentials for Health Protection by Emily Chan Book Summary:

The aim of health protection is to prevent and manage outbreaks of communicable and environmental diseases, and to make us better at responding to emergencies and disasters. This includes working with diseases and injuries from environmental hazard exposures and climate change. Essentials for Health Protection: Four Key Components is a guide to the reality of the field, and a discussion of how we can improve our present and future. Based on public health theories and illustrated by relevant examples, this book is founded on the experience gained from the long-established CCOUC Ethnic Minority Health Project in China. It covers the four key areas identified by the Commonwealth Secretariat in its 'Health Protection Policy Toolkit'; climate change adaptation and mitigation, communicable disease control, emergency preparedness, and environmental health. With the aim to strengthen regional, subnational, national and global health protection, it also looks at health impact assessment in these areas. Discussing the health protection spectrum from mitigation, interventions and response, this book is a current and comprehensive guide to the field. Looking forwards, it discusses the latest controversies and dynamics and how they might change the reality of health protection practices and development. Essentials for Health Protection: Four Key Components is the ideal introductory to intermediate level textbook and reference book for healthcare professionals, fieldworkers, volunteers and students who are interested in promoting health and emergency and disaster risk reduction.

International Trade and Health Protection

Health Protection [Pdf/ePub] eBook

International Trade and Health Protection by Tracey Epps Book Summary:

This detailed and fully referenced text is a valuable resource both for practitioners and academics. Michael Blakeney, International Trade Law and Regulation Interspersing law with societal context, this volume by Dr Epps stands out among WTO analysis. The author offers a delightfully balanced view on the nature and origin of SPS measures (including references to history) whilst at the same time mastering the hard law of the SPS Agreement in detail. Practitioners will enjoy the detailed analysis of WTO dispute settlement. A reference book for practice and academia, and also a very, very good read. Geert Van Calster, Katholieke Universiteit, Leuven, Belgium This book examines and critiques the WTO s Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS Agreement), asking whether it strikes an appropriate balance between conflicting domestic health protection and trade liberalization objectives. It pays particular attention to situations likely to occur but not yet fully examined either in the literature or in WTO law; most importantly, where public opinion demands regulation in the face of scientific uncertainty as to the existence or otherwise of a health risk. Tracey Epps concludes that the SPS Agreement s science-based framework is capable of dealing with the differing objectives of health and trade, and that it provides countries with more flexibility to respond to scientific uncertainties and public sentiment than many critics contend. This conclusion is strongly influenced by a positive analysis of domestic regulatory decision-making, which finds potential for regulatory capture by domestic protectionist interests and thus emphasizes the importance of ensuring that decisions are made on a sound and principled basis. Including a historical overview of disputes over trade and health since the 1800s, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of and new perspective on an important area of intersection between international trade law and domestic policy. It will be of interest to a wide-ranging audience including legal and non-legal academics, policy makers and analysts in the field of risk regulation, trade law practitioners in governments, and lawyers and analysts in international institutions.

Health Protection [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Army Techniques Publication ATP 4-02.8 Force Health Protection Change 1 August 2020 by United States Government Us Army Book Summary:

This United States Army manual, Army Techniques Publication ATP 4-02.8 Force Health Protection Change 1 August 2020, encompasses all of the preventive aspects of the AHS. The AHS is a system of health which promotes the physiological and psychological wellbeing of Soldiers and their Families from their accession into the U. S. Army, throughout their careers, and into their retirement or separation from military service. Force health protection promotes healthy and positive lifestyle changes which result in healthy and fit Soldiers, facilitates and enhances resilience, and ensures a combat-ready force. The cornerstone of this philosophy is the performance triad-sleep, activity, and nutrition. This publication addresses the preventive aspects of the various functions which comprise FHP. Although the design of this publication discusses each function separately, the reader must keep in mind the AHS is a system of systems that is interdependent and interrelated and requires continual planning, coordination, and synchronization to prevent and mitigate health risks to deployed Soldiers and to provide the highest quality of care to our wounded, injured, and ill Soldiers. This publication is organized as follows: Chapter 1, Force Health Protection and the Performance Triad. This chapter provides an introduction to the performance triad and its importance to maintaining a healthy and fit combat- ready force. Chapter 2, Preventive Medicine. The medical function of PVNTMED is described including all programs and services which are encompassed by this function. The chapter also discusses the levels of PVNTMED support and the PVNTMED assets as they are arrayed on the battlefield. Chapter 3, Veterinary Services. The Defense Health Agency (DHA) exercises management responsibility for shared services, functions, and activities in the Military Health System and its common business and clinical processes. As such, veterinary support is provided to all Services with the exception of food inspection on United States Air Force installations by United States Army veterinary resources.Chapter 4, Combat and Operational Stress Control. The medical function of COSC covers both the FHP aspects of behavioral health (BH) and the health service support (treatment) aspects of neuropsychiatric and BH support. For a discussion of the treatment aspects refer to ATP 4-02.5. This chapter discusses stress prevention and combat and operational stress reaction (COSR)management, resilience, and programs. ★Chapter 5, Preventive Dentistry. This chapter has been superseded by ATP 4-02.19. Chapter 6, Area Medical Laboratory. Area medical laboratory services and support fall under the protection warfighting function and the FHP mission area because of its capability to identify chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) warfare agents. Although it is also capable of providing direct support to hospital clinical laboratories in support of medical diagnosis and treatment, it is the only laboratory in theater which can identify and confirm the presence of CBRN agents. Appendix A, Determination of Eligibility for Care of Military Working Dogs and Other Government-Owned Animals. This appendix provides the considerations for determining the eligibility for care in a U.S. Army veterinary facility of military working dogs, contractor animals, government-owned animals, unit mascots if authorized by command, and personal pets.
