Abstract: a laboratory procedure was devised to recover bromine from waste alkaline aqueous solutions used in the isotopic determination of n-15. the laboratory apparatus comprises two round bottom flasks (1 and 2 l), a dropping funnel, a gas bubbler, a gas regulator and glass fittings. the waste solution is acidified with sulfuric acid forming molecular bromine that is stripped out by a flow of nitrogen gas bubbled through the solution. this gas is then bubbled through a solution of lithium hydroxide generating lithium bromide and lithium hypobromite. the efficiency of bromine recovery was estimated to be 82±2%. this resulting solution was successfully reused in the isotopic determination of n-15. the procedure can recycle most of the bromine used in the laboratory saving resources and preserving the environment. the procedure can be adapted to recover bromine of other laboratory waste streams.

Abstract: the national environment policy aims to reconcile economic and social development with environmental quality and has several instruments to address environmental issues within the decision making processes. thus, the discussion about the location of activities is an important step in the evaluation of the environmental acceptability of aparticular activity, even though the systematic procedures do not require neither to the entrepreneur or to the government studies of sitting alternatives. this paper presents the integration of technical, environmental and social criteria in a landfill sitting study, in order to present a systematic integration of environmental factors and applies in a case study in s?o carlos, brazil. the results allowed the development of an environmental impact statement more focused on significant impacts and the participation of segments of society at early stages of project's development.
Medical schools that received the PROMED (program for the encouragement of curricular changes in medical courses)—Preconditions and change process  [PDF]
Patricia Alves de Souza, Marco Aurélio Da Ros, Angélica Maria Bicudo Zeferino
Health (Health) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/health.2012.45046
Abstract: Since the Curriculum Guidelines (CG) which were created in 2001 and PROMED (Program for the Encouragement of Curricular Changes in Medical Courses), several schools have applied for this incentive. Medical Schools (MS) have faced important changes in their curriculum throughout the years. The purpose is to verify if medical schools that received PROMED already had a historical of curricular changes. Several interviews, which were carried out with PROMED coordinators, were recorded, transcribed and analyzed according to the Bardin’s content analysis technique. Later, these interviews were later categorized into nine themes. This paper analyses the Medical School History category which encompasses three subcategories: existence of a former changing history; need to overcome the model and changing period. It is highlighted that medical schools that received PROMED had a previous changing historical which was sometimes located in anti-hegemonic niches. It is noticeable, however, that such changes were not enough to affect the comprehension of healthillness process and its consequent results. PROMED was, effectively, the reference for medical schools implementing the C.G. which represents, now, a benchmarking for all new and old schools in the country.

Patricia Alves de Souza, Marco Aurélio Da Ros, Angélica Maria Bicudo Zeferino
Health (Health) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/health.2012.48080
Abstract: Introduction: In Brazil, in a joint initiative of the Ministries of Health and of Education and Culture, the Program for the Promotion of Changes in Medical School Curricula (PROMED) was created, in order to give financial support to medical schools for the development and implementation of curricular changes to the medicine courses. Objective: To ascertain the influence of PROMED on the interaction between the Brazilian public healthcare system (SUS) and the universities. Method: Using the qualitative method by way of content analysis of the Bardin, interviews with 19 coordinators of the medicine courses which received financial support from PROMED were carried out and analyzed. Results: Subcategories which express the current relation between SUS and the universities were found: the need to train SUS professionals and the teaching staff involved, the lines of research directed toward SUS and partnership relations as part of the student learning process, the strengthening of SUS and the internal problems. Conclusions: Observing the needs of the relationship between SUS and the curricular changes it was noted that the public health services are of extreme importance as part of the training process of the medical student. Besides favoring practice, it establishes student activities within the health services, the evaluation of the policies, planning and management of the health services in activities of training and social communication in healthcare, linked to community organizations or diverse social entities. Thus, problems associated with the healthcare service can be identified, as well as the health conditions and life style of the population.

Frederico Manoel Marques, Marco Aurélio Peres, Giana Zarbato Longo, Patricia Alves de Souza
Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.512268

Introduction: There are few population-based studies conducted in Brazil outside the major urban centers, the prevalence of overweight, obesity and associated factors in the up country cities remains not noticed. Particularly, the characteristics of this phenomenon are unknown in the mountain regions of Santa Catarina (state of the southern region), which concentrate the lowest economic and social development of the state, where culture, dietary habits and climate are quite peculiar. Objective: To estimate the prevalence of nutritional status and its association with self-reported diseases in adults of Lages, Santa Catarina. Methods: A cross sectional study including adults was conducted (n = 2022). Demographic information was collected as well as anthropometric measurements, through a number of interviews and physical examinations. The outcome of the study was the body mass index (BMI). The descriptive statistic was performed, as well as simple associations between BMI and the independent variables by sex. Correlations between BMI, abdominal circumference and self-reported diseases for men and women were tested separately. Results: The prevalence of normal weight, overweight and obesity among men was 41%, 39% and 19% respectively. Among women, the prevalence rates were 43%, 31% and 26%. It was observed that the obesity increase is correlated with low levels of education. The greater the BMI the more negative was the self-assessment of health. It was

found a positive correlation between BMI and abdominal circumference, with diabetes mellitus and high blood pressure levels. Conclusions: There was a high prevalence of overweight and obesity in Lages, SC. Strategies involving the various sectors of the community should be considered to reverse this process.

Patricia Alves de Souza, Marco Aurélio Da Ros, Angélica Maria Bicudo
Creative Education (CE) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2017.815166
Abstract: The new Medical Program curriculum guidelines led to the program restructure in Brazil. In 2001, PROMED (Program for the Encouragement of Curricular Changes in Medical Courses) was created, as a result of a partnership between the Ministry of Health (MS) and the Ministry of Education (MEC) to financially encourage medical schools to implement changes in 3 aspects. 1) Theoretical guidance (Production of knowledge as required by the Single Health System (SUS-free health care system for the population), 2) Post-Graduate Program and Continuing Education, Practices Scenarios Diversification of practice scenarios, 3) University services to serve the needs of SUS and Pedagogical Approach (Pedagogical change-student-centered, basic-clinical cycle integration). The purpose of this paper is to examine the role of professors in curriculum changes promoted by PROMED. Nineteen coordinators of medical programs that received PROMED resources were interviewed. The category: The role of Professors with 3 subcategories: The need for qualification of professors, adapting to change and the process under development. For a curriculum change to be consolidated it is necessary to overcome various barriers, as the starting point are ways, processes and teaching practices deeply rooted in some professors. And continuing education is essential for professors. They go from knowledge holder to learning facilitators, allowing students to learn by doing themselves.

Abstract: Aedes aegypti has developed evolution-driven adaptations for surviving in the domestic human habitat. Several trap models have been designed considering these strategies and tested for monitoring this efficient vector of Dengue. Here, we report a real-scale evaluation of a system for monitoring and controlling mosquito populations based on egg sampling coupled with geographic information systems technology. The SMCP-Aedes, a system based on open technology and open data standards, was set up from March/2008 to October/2011 as a pilot trial in two sites of Pernambuco -Brazil: Ipojuca (10,000 residents) and Santa Cruz (83,000), in a joint effort of health authorities and staff, and a network of scientists providing scientific support. A widespread infestation by Aedes was found in both sites in 2008–2009, with 96.8%–100% trap positivity. Egg densities were markedly higher in SCC than in Ipojuca. A 90% decrease in egg density was recorded in SCC after two years of sustained control pressure imposed by suppression of >7,500,000 eggs and >3,200 adults, plus larval control by adding fishes to cisterns. In Ipojuca, 1.1 million mosquito eggs were suppressed and a 77% reduction in egg density was achieved. This study aimed at assessing the applicability of a system using GIS and spatial statistic analysis tools for quantitative assessment of mosquito populations. It also provided useful information on the requirements for reducing well-established mosquito populations. Results from two cities led us to conclude that the success in markedly reducing an Aedes population required the appropriate choice of control measures for sustained mass elimination guided by a user-friendly mosquito surveillance system. The system was able to support interventional decisions and to assess the program’s success. Additionally, it created a stimulating environment for health staff and residents, which had a positive impact on their commitment to the dengue control program.
