Revista médica de Chile , 2001,
Abstract: The Editors of Revista Médica de Chile are taking steps aimed to improve the "visibility" of this journal and to stimulate local and foreign authors to submit better original articles, appealing to a broader and international readership. Until now, the journal’s editorial policy has been to stress its educational role, focused in Chilean readers and authors. In the recent years, an increasing number of research articles is being received, including manuscripts from North America, Europe and other Latinamerican countries. This is explainable, in part, by the fact that this journal is indexed in MEDLINE, ISI (Current Contents/Clinical Medicine) and several other major databases. The Revista is also one of the oldest medical journals in the world, published since 1872. In this issue of the Revista we welcome the new members of an "International Advisory Committee", with prominent physicians, scientists and teachers from the U.S.A. and Europe. They accepted to advise the Editors in their task, to submit review articles, state-of-the-art or position papers on topics of their own interest, and to help in the assessment of some manuscripts. We thank them warmly for their enthusiastic response to our invitation (Rev Méd Chile 2001;129: 7-8).

Abstract: L’iniziativa delle Nazioni Unite volta alla formazione di un comitato di esperti nella gestione della informazione geografica, già presentata in questa rubrica in un precedente numero, ha fatto un passo avanti definitivo con l’incontro di Seoul dello scorso ottobre. The United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Manage-ment, established by ECOSOC on 27 July 2011 as the official UN consultative mechanism on GGIM, has convened its inaugural meeting on 26 October 2011 in Seoul, Republic of Korea. The inaugural meeting has brought together experts from Member States and observers from international organizations to adopt the Terms of Refer-ence of the Committee, review the Rules of Procedure of the Committee, and discuss its contribution to Rio+20 Conference as well as an inventory of critical issues to be addressed by the Committee in its future sessions

Revista médica de Chile , 2005,
Abstract: During the 1960's Revista Médica de Chile started to request external peer reviews to assess the quality of the manuscripts received and an official Editorial Advisory Committee was incorporated in 1973. Since then, its members have been changed four times. The Committee has served the purposes of providing an external peer review independent to the editors, assessing manuscripts submitted, although many other experts have also contributed and their names have been acknowledged yearly in the July issues of the journal. At the present time, the journal receives an increasing number of manuscripts from a wider range of medical specialties as well as from basic scientists doing research in topics connected with clinical medicine. The overload of papers forces the editors to adopt policies to cope with it. One of them is to renew and enlarge the list of members of the Editorial Advisory Committee, including experts who have recently provided efficient help in reviewing manuscripts. They have also accepted to collaborate with the Editors in selecting other external experts able to participate in the peer-review process, while decisions on acceptance or rejection remain in the Editor and Associate Editors. As a Special Article in this issue, Revista Médica de Chile recognizes again the generosity of all those who along the recent decades have contributed as Members of the Editorial Advisory Committee to the educational, professional and scientific role of this journal (Rev Méd Chile 2005; 133: 9-10)

Revista médica de Chile , 2009,
Abstract: Starting in 2001, Revista Médica de Chile has received advice and contributions from eight distinguished physicians from Belgium, Italy, Spain and the U.S.A., nominated Members of its International Advisory Board. A list of their contributions appears in the References section of this Editorial. The Editors have considered opportune to renew this Committee. Two of the previous members will remain in office because of their frequent and outstanding contributions. Seven new members have been selected among prominent physicians and scientists working out of Chile, with brilliant academic and professional careers, who have established regular contacts with different Chilean Societies in the fields of Internal Medicine and its subspecialties. The Editors expect to receive their advice and contributions to stimulate progress in a journal that currently has expanded its presence in the international literature in Internal and General Medicine, and in related specialties and biomedical science.
Monitoring signals for vaccine safety: the assessment of individual adverse event reports by an expert advisory committee
Collet,J.-P.; MacDonald,N.; Cashman,N.; Pless,R.; ,;
Bulletin of the World Health Organization , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S0042-96862000000200005
Abstract: monitoring vaccine safety is a complex and shared responsibility. it can be carried out in many ways, one of which is the reporting of individual cases of adverse reactions thought to be due to vaccination. the task is difficult because ascribing causality to an individual case report is fraught with challenges. a standardized evaluation instrument - known as the causality assessment form - was therefore developed for use by an expert advisory committee to facilitate the process. by following the several sections in this form, the members of the committee are taken through series of points to establish causality. these points include the basic criteria for causation such as biological plausibility, the time elapsed between the vaccine administration and the onset of the adverse event, and whether other factors (drugs, chemicals or underlying disease) could account for the adverse symptoms. the form concludes with consensus assessment of causality, a commentary about the assessment, and advice for further study or follow-up. this method of assessing the more serious cases of adverse reaction reported to vaccination has proven useful in evaluating ongoing safety of vaccines in canada. through analyses such as this, new signals can be identified and investigated further.
Vancomycin use in a brazilian teaching hospital: comparison with the Hospital Infection Controlpractices Advisory Committee Guidelines (HICPAC)
Melo, Daniela Oliveira de;Ribeiro, Eliane;
Brazilian Journal of Infectious Diseases , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-86702009000300001
Abstract: this study describes vancomycin prescribing patterns in an average complexity hospital and compare the guidelines proposed by the hospital infection control practices advisory committee (hicpac). the study was conducted in a 256-bed secondary-care hospital. data were collected of all patients given vancomycin from march 2003 to february 2004, using a standardized chart-extraction form designed. appropriate and inappropriate use was reviewed according to the hospital infection control practices advisory committee (hicpac) guidelines on prudent vancomycin use. out of 118 prescriptions, 95 (80.5%) were considered appropriate. out of these 95 orders, 77 (81.1%) were administered for empiric treatment of suspected gram-positive infections, 17 (17.9%) were administered for treatment of proven gram-positive infections (76.5% identified as staphyloccocus aureus-like agents) and 1 (1.0%) for beta-lactam allergy. the majority of the patients (96.6%) had recently used an antimicrobial medication (3 months). the mean pre-treatment hospitalization period was 11±10 days. out of the 118 treatments, 67 (56.8%) were for nosocomial infections. the more frequent indications for vancomycin use were pneumonia (48.3%) and primary sepsis (18.6%), accounting for more than 66% of all treatments. no restriction policy was suggested because vancomycin use was considered adequate in the majority of the treatment cases. the broad empiric use of this antimicrobial was greater than expected in the institution and its use should be revised.
