The objective of this study was to verify the compliance of the supermarket sector with respect to the Good Practice Program standards of the city of Santa Maria (RS), Brazil. Sixty nine establishments were verified using a checklist of good practices for the supermarket sector in Santa Maria, RS (Brazil), from April to July 2011. The data were collected by a food safety and quality professional using this checklist. The results showed that the overall adequacy of the establishments surveyed was 29.07%. The highest percentage of compliance was found for storage at ambient temperature (64.13%). The lowest compliance percentage was also found in different sections and areas in the supermarkets such as bakery and confectionery (14.93%), water supply (18.30%), food handling (21.01%), sausage and cold meat (or deli meat) (36.38%), and documentation-related items (4.97%). None of the supermarkets evaluated had the necessary documentation for the implementation of good practices. The results of this study show the importance of effectively implementing a good practice program and quality systems by raising awareness among technicians and professionals of the importance of quality programs used in food companies and the need for more thorough inspection delivered by competent authorities to ensure food safety for consumers.

The purpose of this study was to understand user embracement as a good practice for use in primary health care, according to the perceptions of administrators, health professionals and patients, considering the dimensions of dialogue, attitude and reorganization of health services. It consists of a descriptive-analytical investigation, of a qualitative nature. The Grounded Theory was used as the theoretical-methodological referential. Data were obtained through interviews performed with seven coordinators, ten professionals and twelve patients of the Health Centers of Florianópolis-SC. Under the perspective of good practices, user embracement becomes a point of intersection between different subjects and primary health care practices, unfolding the dimensions of embracement-dialogue, embracement-attitude and embracement-reorganization of services. User embracement triggers transformations in the working process, in the relationships established in the care spaces and in the organizational scope of the services. The interconnection of this triad reconfigures and changes the actions in primary health care and contributes to the consolidation of this health care model.

The participation of minors in biobank research can offer great benefits for science and health care. However, as minors are a vulnerable population they are also in need of adequate protective measures when they are enrolled in research. Research using biobanked biological samples from children poses additional ethical issues to those raised by research using adult biobanks. For example, small children have only limited capacity, if any, to understand the meaning and implications of the research and to give a documented agreement to it. Older minors are gradually acquiring this capacity. We describe principles for good practice related to the inclusion of minors in biobank research, focusing on issues related to benefits and subsidiarity, consent, proportionality and return of results. Some of these issues are currently heavily debated, and we conclude by providing principles for good practice for policy makers of biobanks, researchers and anyone involved in dealing with stored tissue samples from children. Actual implementation of the principles will vary according to different jurisdictions.

Several clinical practice guidelines related to the assessment and management of low back pain (LBP) have been published with varied scopes and methods. This paper summarises the first French occupational guidelines for management of work-related LBP (October 2013). There main originality is to treat all the three stages of primary, secondary and tertiary prevention of work-related LBP. The guidelines were written by a multidisciplinary working group of 24 experts, according to the Clinical Practice Guidelines method proposed by French National Health Authority, and reviewed by a multidisciplinary peer review committee of 50 experts. Recommendations were based on a large systematic review of the literature carried out from 1990 to 2012 and rated as strong (Level A), moderate (B), limited (C) or based on expert consensus (D) according to their level of evidence. It is recommended to deliver reassuring and consistent information concerning LBP prognosis (Level B); to perform a clinical examination looking for medical signs of severity related to LBP (Level A), encourage continuation or resumption of physical activity (Level A), identify any changes in working conditions and evaluate the occupational impact of LBP (Level D). In case of persistent/recurrent LBP...

Incluye Bibliografía; The production of official statistics calls for responsibility and commitment on the part of the competent agencies. Thus, credible statistics and reliable national statistical institutes and other members of the national statistical system are vital assets since they are essential to the design, formulation, monitoring and assessment of Government plans and programmes.This credibility is a value that gains strength over time thanks to the generation of quality statistics  that  comply  with  standards,  principles  and  norms  relating  to  the  production process  and statistical activity as a whole.International recommendations and guidelines have been drawn up in order to build more robust national statistical institutes within the national statistical system and apply fundamental principles and good practices which will result in qualitative improvements.International guidelines have been adapted and compiled into a draft Code of Good Practice in Statistics in Latin America and the Caribbean, the aim being to improve the quality of statistical output and build trust in national statistical institutes and enhance the comparability of regional statistics.1 The draft Code seeks to strengthen the institutional framework and the procedures and products necessary for obtaining quality statistics.Once the Code of Good Practice has been adopted...

There has been growing interest from stakeholders around the world in recent years in how to build momentum for private sector development in states with poor investment climates. Dialogue between the public and private sectors, in various forms, has often been integral to attempts to build such momentum. It became increasingly clear that there was a demand from the field for guidance based on international best practice. In 2004-2005, responding to this demand, the World Bank, Department for International Development (DFID) and Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) development centre independently conducted or commissioned reports drawing together lessons learned from field experiences in using public-private dialogue to promote private sector development reform efforts. While numerous case studies had existed, this was the first time comprehensive efforts had been made to synthesize lessons. The papers were: competitiveness partnerships, reforming the business enabling environment, and dialogue public-prive dans les pays en developpement. The development of the three papers in a short period indicated a growing recognition among the international donor community of the importance and potential of public-private dialogue as a tool for promoting private sector development with the ultimate aim of poverty reduction.

Politics and the political economy matter for whether and how reforms happen in developing as well as in developed countries. The World Bank as an institution and its individual country and task teams has been grappling with this issue for many years. The good practice framework described here is an attempt to summarize relevant analytic tools and approaches, to indicate how it can be used (more) systematically, and to make key lessons readily available. It also seeks to set out how such tools can be used in a way that is problem driven, that is, focused on specific issues and challenges rather than on developing broad overviews, in order to generate operationally relevant findings and implications. Integrating governance and political economy (GPE) analysis more systematically into Bank operational work is important to enhance development effectiveness, to better address risks, and to respond to client demands for approaches that are tailored to specific situations. The objective of this framework is to systematize approaches to GPE analysis and to provide orientation for teams that are considering undertaking it. The framework especially draws on the experience with a number of pilot studies undertaken in FY2008 and FY2009...

Final year projects are important in engineering programs because they provide students with an opportunity to show that their study developed in them professional capabilities expected of graduating engineers, in particular, a capacity to personally manage and conduct a complex, open-ended project. These projects also indicate of program standards for accreditation. However a collaborative project moderation process between two institutions and subsequent discussions within the engineering education community has identified many issues and concerns, opportunities for enhancing learning and improving project supervision and management, and for developing broad consensus about good project supervision, management, assessment and standards. The authors have initiated a pilot project to survey current practice, develop good practice guidelines and prepare resources to be shared with project course coordinators and during this process to develop a community of practice and scholarship in the area of final year engineering projects.; http://www.aaee.com.au/; M.G.

BACKGROUND: Mood disorders arising in the perinatal period (conception to the first postnatal year), occur in up to 13% of women. The adverse impact of mood disorders on mother, infant and family with potential long-term consequences are well documented. There is a need for clear, evidence-based, guidelines for midwives and other maternity care providers. AIM: To describe the process undertaken to develop the Australian Clinical Practice Guidelines for Depression and Related Disorders in the Perinatal Period and to highlight the key recommendations and their implications for the maternity sector. METHOD: Using NHMRC criteria, a rigorous systematic literature review was undertaken synthesising the evidence used to formulate graded guideline recommendations. Where there was insufficient evidence for recommendations, Good Practice Points were formulated. These are based on lower quality evidence and/or expert consensus. FINDINGS: The quality of the evidence was good in regards to the use of the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale and psychological interventions, but limited as regards medication use and safety perinatally. Recommendations were made for staff training in psychosocial assessment; universal screening for depression across the perinatal period; and the use of evidence based psychological interventions for mild to moderate depression postnatally. Good Practice Points addressed the use of comprehensive psychosocial assessment--including risk to mother and infant...

As part of the work carried out by the Exchange Circle of Flood Forecasting (EXCIFF), an activity was initiated to bring together good practices in communicating flood-related information to the general public. A drafting group consisting of staff of several operational flood forecasting agencies in Europe collected and compiled these good practices. The team worked on this task mainly by e-mail and during 3 writing sessions, hold twice in Brussels and once in Mainz. All the EXCIFF members have been involved at the end of the validating process. Aspects that are covered in the guide are a review of the current practices, the kinds of information in a flood warning, several broadcast technologies (internet, mobile phone, telephone, newspaper, tv, radio, public broadcasts in the street), dissemination frequency, phasing/co-ordination, synchronicity and conflicting disseminations, as well as training and education, both of the provider staff responsible for informing the general public, as well as education of the general public itself. Within the frame of the European Exchange Circle on Flood Forecasting (EXCIFF), which is co-chaired by France and the JRC, and which is part of the European Flood Initiative of DG ENV, a guide is written on "Good practice for delivering flood information to the general public". This guide is based on contributions from memberstates...

The major environmental and social management challenges that we face today, climate change, loss of biodiversity, the decline of ocean fisheries, limitations on food security, the scarcity of usable freshwater resources, displacement of communities with consequent increases in urban poverty, and inviability of traditional local livelihoods, are all the result of cumulative impacts from a large number of activities that are for the most part individually insignificant, but together have had regional or even global repercussions. The importance of understanding the cumulative environmental and social impacts from multiple projects, actions, or activities, or even from the same actions over an extended period of time, located in the same geographic region or affecting the same resource (e.g., watershed, airshed) has been acknowledged for decades. In some cases, the most ecologically devastating environmental effects and subsequent social consequences may result not from the direct effects of a particular action...

The private sector, through investment and job creation, plays a crucial role in a country's fight against poverty. Where an effective private sector is lacking, business registration reform has been shown to be one of the essential first steps toward fostering private-sector growth. The easier, faster, and cheaper the business registration process becomes, the higher the number of businesses in an economy. A number of recent studies have found that simpler registration processes translate into advantages for workers and employers, including greater employment opportunities, more productive jobs, and higher total factor productivity. In addition, society as a whole benefits from registration reform. Business registration reform also has the potential to reduce both informality and gender disparity in entrepreneurship. This toolkit provides a systematic analysis of various reform options and is meant to serve as a guide for policy makers and practitioners implementing business registration reform. The toolkit thus displays the fundamentals of international good practice that can be adapted to specific country contexts in a coherent...

Vários estudos se têm realizado com a finalidade perceber a integração das TIC em contextos educativos e as respostas dos professores às novas tecnologias. Todavia, actualmente começa a haver necessidade de repensar as práticas pedagógicas que geram processos metodológicos de mudança ou se persistem práticas pedagógicas tradicionais e, ainda, quem as realiza, em que contextos e que preocupações têm estes professores. Este texto tem como propósito apresentar concepções dos professores sobre o que é uma boa prática e referir algumas experiências realizadas pelos professores em sala de aula.; Several studies have been carried out in order to understand the integration of the TIC in the educational context and the teachers’ reactions to the new technologies. However, presently there begins to appear the necessity of understanding which pedagogical practices generate the methodical changes or recreate the traditional pedagogical practices, who puts them into practice and in which contexts, and the preoccupations that these teachers have. This article was written in order to present the teachers’ conceptions about what a good practice is and in order to refer a group of good practices carried out by the teachers in the classroom.

The recent discussion document on primary health care proposes that a good practice allowance is paid to general practitioners based in part on the uptake of immunisation by patients. The variation between and the validity of practice immunisation rates for measles as determined by one district health authority's child health computer are assessed. In areas of low population mobility district health authority rates may be sufficiently accurate to base a good practice allowance on but should not be used until the social environment of each practice can also be characterised. In areas of high mobility intermittent surveys may be a preferable method of auditing performance.

Pharmacovigilance has not progressed well in India and the concept is still in its infancy. India rates below 1% in pharmacovigilance as against the world rate of 5%. Objectives: The aim of our study was to evaluate the knowledge, perception and practice of pharmacovigilance among registered community pharmacists in Hyderabad, India. Methods: This was a prospective study to find out the knowledge, perception and practice of adverse drug reaction reporting among community pharmacists. It was conducted by a face to face questionnaire and the convenience factor of the pharmacist was taken into consideration. Results: From the 650 questionnaire administered to community pharmacists, 347 (53.3%) were returned completely filled questionnaires. A number of 120 (34.6%) pharmacists could define the term -pharmacovigilance' to an acceptable extent and 119 (34.3%) knew about the National Pharmacovigilance Programme in India. 96 (27.7%) had good knowledge, 36(10.4%) had fair knowledge and 215(61.9%) had poor knowledge about pharmacovigilance. We have found that 196 (56.5%) had good perception, 94(27.1%) had fair perception and 57(16.4%) had poor perception. Only 41(11.8%) pharmacists ever reported an ADR and the other never reported ADR. The majority of pharmacists 223(64.3%) felt that the AE is very simple and non-serious and hence did not report. Pharmacists have poor knowledge...

This study assesses the quality of distance learning (DL) in higher education assessed by considering the Seven Principles of Good Practice (SPGP). The participants were 77 second-year students from the Computer and Instructional Technologies Program (CEIT) of a Faculty of Education in Turkey. A questionnaire was developed in line with the SPGP and administered to collect data after 14 weeks of teaching. The author's observations were added to a discussion of the connections between student perspectives and the SPGP. The lessons were delivered in a virtual classroom. It is a synchronous online learning environment with online meetings, chat, forums, whiteboards, desktop sharing, document sharing and other online features. The analysis of the results of the questionnaire indicate that this questionnaire as it has been developed in this study can be effective in understanding and evaluating the perspectives of learners on the quality of distance learning in virtual classrooms. This study also presents some new evidence on the potential of virtual classrooms for teaching, learning and learner interaction. Finally, some suggestions regarding the expectations of distance learners were also provided for instructors who wish to utilize virtual classrooms in their teaching.
