Comparison of prescribing and dispensing processes between veterinarians and pharmacists in New Zealand: Are there opportunities for cooperation?
McDowell,Arlene; Assink,Lauren; Musgrave,Rebecca; Soper,Hannah; Williams,Chantal; Norris,Pauline;
Pharmacy Practice (Internet) , 2011, DOI: 10.4321/S1886-36552011000100004
Abstract: background: prescribing and dispensing of medicines are fundamental processes in providing healthcare for both human and animal patients. there has been recent discussion in the literature to advocate for increased co-operation between pharmacists and veterinarians, however there is little data available about veterinary prescribing and dispensing processes. objective: the aims of this study were to gain information on veterinary prescribing and dispensing processes for companion animals in the dunedin region of new zealand. methods: open interviews were conducted with a selection of five veterinarians at practices in dunedin. all interviews were transcribed verbatim. results: in new zealand almost all dispensing of medicines for animals is carried out by veterinarians or their staff. there is a lack of standard treatment guidelines and a lack of regulation around the treatment period for which medicines can be dispensed at one time (i.e. period of supply). medicines for animals are sometimes dispensed by community pharmacies, where clients are experiencing financial difficulties or when particular medicines are not held by veterinary practices. record keeping requirements and practices for veterinarians are similar to those for community pharmacies. conclusions: processes undertaken by veterinarians in terms of prescribing and dispensing were similar to pharmacists′ practices for human patients and so there is opportunity for collaboration between the two professions. pharmacists also have complementary knowledge about dosing and formulating medicines that can assist in delivering optimal healthcare to animal patients.
Are Otters an Effective Flagship for the Conservation of Riparian Corridors in an Amazon Deforestation Frontier?
Darren Norris,Darren Norris
IUCN Otter Specialist Group Bulletin , 2009,
Abstract: Using flagship species to generate support for conservation activities has been successfully applied in some regions. We investigated whether using otters as a flagship for the conservation of riparian corridors in an Amazonian deforestation frontier would be likely to result in similar success. Between December 2007 and May 2009, we conducted 64 interviews with local landowners in the region of Alta Floresta (MT, Brazil). These interviews revealed a neutral attitude towards otters, which indicates that direct persecution (e.g. retaliation against otter predation on fish) is unlikely in the region. However, it also suggested that using otters as a flagship to generate local support for regional conservation activities will not be effective. There was a sharp contrast with the replies to questions regarding riparian corridors, where interviews did reveal strong positive attitudes. These results suggested that to conserve Giant Otters in the Amazon “Arc of deforestation”, efforts should focus on the support of maintenance of riparian corridors connecting forest fragments by local people.
The Positive Feedback Advantages of Combining Buying and Investing  [PDF]
Vic Norris, Laura Norris, Wing-Keung Wong
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2015.55077
Abstract: A substantial proportion of the world’s population is dissatisfied with the way the global market-based economy operates. In particular, the desire of consumers to pay as little as possible for a product and the desire of producers and investors to make as much profit as possible, lead to actions that drive down wages, undermine social welfare and damage the environment. To counteract this, we propose that the millions of consumers who wish to change the market adopt a combined buying and investing strategy that we term buyvesting in which “ethical” would become the new “profitable”. We use a learning program to illustrate the buyvesting proposal, which we discuss with respect to the concepts of competitive coherence and shared reality theory.
Global Responses to Chronic Diseases: What Lessons Can Political Science Offer?
Chantal Blouin
Administrative Sciences , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/admsci2010120
Abstract: Designing and adopting a global response to address the rise of chronic diseases in both the industrial and developing world requires policymakers to engage in global health diplomacy. In the context of the recent United Nations’ High-Level Summit on Non-Communicable Diseases, the paper first reviews the rationale for collective action at the global level to address the rise of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), given the perceived limited cross-border dimensions of NCDs. Secondly, based on the social sciences literature studying policymaking at the domestic and international level, this article highlights recommendations on how to engage during the main phases of the policy process: agenda-setting, policy development and adoption.
Trade policy and health: from conflicting interests to policy coherence
Bulletin of the World Health Organization , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0042-96862007000300008
Abstract: policy incoherence at the interface between trade policy and health can take many forms, such as international trade commitments that strengthen protection of pharmaceutical patents, or promotion of health tourism that exacerbates the shortage of physicians in rural areas. focusing on the national policy-making process, we make recommendations regarding five conditions that are necessary, but not sufficient, to ensure that international trade policies are coherent with national health objectives. these conditions are: space for dialogue and joint fact-finding; leadership by ministries of health; institutional mechanisms for coordination; meaningful engagement with stakeholders; and a strong evidence base.
Por um modelo agonístico de democracia
Mouffe, Chantal;
Revista de Sociologia e Política , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-44782005000200003
Abstract: this article proposes a new description of the fundamental principles of democracy that allow for conflict, passion and politics. initially, a critique of the most commonly propagated forms of deliberative democracy is carried out, focusing on the way that they neutralize and reduce political pluralism and abuse the democratic goals of legitimacy and rationality. we then go on to analyze insights belong to carl schmitt's understanding of the concept of the political. finally, the concept of the political is critically appropriated within the realm of a proposal for an agonistic model of democracy in which there is no longer a naturalization of the boundaries of democracy and of the clashes among actors; those who within a democratic society are seen as enemies should take on the role of adversaries that share a set of values and ethical and political principles, the interpretation of which then become the object of dispute.
Sécurité et ordre politique au Cameroun : entre dynamiques internes et connexions internationales
BEP Chantal
African Journal of International Affairs , 2009,
Abstract: L’ordre sécuritaire au Cameroun se constitue autour d’une dialectique qui met en évidence les dynamiques sécuritaires endogènes et les connexions internationales. Ces dynamiques du dedans et du dehors s’instituent dans un mouvement d’imbrication et d’enchassement. Sur le plan interne, le processus de sécurisation s’opère autour d’un diptyque. Celui-ci dénote d’une part une logique de désécurisation qui suppose une déconstruction et une recomposition de l’ordre sécuritaire. La déconstruction de la sécurité en tant que bien commun se révèle à travers l’appropriation présidentielle de la sécurité publique et une fabrication politique de l’insécurité comme mode de gouvernement. Aussi, les enjeux stratégiques, géostratégiques post 11 septembre des grandes puissances dans le golfe de Guinée et le bassin du Congo ainsi que l’environnement polémologène qui caractérise l’Afrique centrale déterminent-ils la reconstitution de la matrice sécuritaire du Cameroun. In fine, l’ordre politique au Cameroun qui s’institue grace à l’ordre sécuritaire est consubstantiel à la domination et à la perpétuation du pouvoir des dirigeants. Security order in Cameroon is hinged upon the relationship between endogenous security dynamics and international connections. These dynamics of the ‘inside’ and the ‘outside’ are closely intertwined. On the inside, the process of security is around a dual relationship between a logic of ‘de-securisation’ which entails the deconstruction and the restoration of the security order. Security deconstruction, as a common good, is revealed through the presidential appropriation of public security and a political engineering of insecurity as a mode of government. Also, post September 11th geo-strategical stakes of hegemons in the Gulf of Guinea and the Congo Basin, along with the ‘polemologeneous’ environment which characterizes central Africa, determine the reconstitution of the security system in Cameroon. In fine, the political order in Cameroon, which is implemented through the security order, is directly linked to the domination and perpetuation of the rule of those in power. Article text in French

La démarche transculturelle en Didactique des Langues-Cultures : une démarche discutable… et/ou qui mérite d’être discutée
Forestal, Chantal
Synergies Pays Riverains de la Baltique , 2009,
Abstract: Résumé : L’idée de cette communication est une prise de position contre une des tendances actuelles de la société et de ses valeurs, la tentation relativiste , que l’on retrouve en didactique des langues, et qui s’appuie sur le plus souvent sur un principe de neutralité : neutralité bienveillante ou neutralité indifférente ? Dans cette perspective, la composante transculturelle , qui concerne la problématique des valeurs universelles est-elle discutable , au sens indirect de peu fiable et donc à écarter de la discussion, ou bien mérite-telle d’être justement plus que jamais discutée, notamment dans ses rapports avec les autres composantes méta-culturelle, interculturelle, multiculturelle ou co- culturelle ?Abstract: In this paper, I argue against one of the trends of contemporary society and its values, the relativistic temptation , which can be found in language education, and which is often based on a principle of neutrality: kindly neutrality or indifferent neutrality? In this perspective, is the transcultural component , which is related to the question of universal values, discussable , in the indirect meaning of little reliability and thus can be rejected? Or does it deserve to be rightly and more than ever discussed, especially in its relations to other metacultural, intercultural, multicultural or co-cultural components?
Une pratique de relaxation au travers des apports théoriques de W. Reich
Chantal Bauduin
m@gm@ , 2004,
Abstract: En tenant compte des aspects psychiques, somatiques, neuro-végétatifs des conflits internes, l'analyse reichienne rétablit l'homme dans sa globalité et en cela elle nous para t encore aujourd'hui très pertinente. Elle nous autorise à sortir des clivages corps et esprit, objectif et subjectif, réalité intérieure et réalité extérieure dans lesquels peut nous entretenir la rationalisation des affects d'une part et/ou leur médicalisation de l'autre. Elle nous invite à la voie de l'expérience: il s'agit de reconna tre la vie en nous, de la "relaxer" (au sens où on libère un prisonnier) et de potentialiser les processus d'auto-guérison. Dans ce sens, elle nous convie à retrouver une certaine forme d'auto-régulation et de responsabilité, à la fois pour nous-même, et dans le milieu social et culturel dans lequel nous agissons.
