Measuring up : improving health system performance in OECD countries by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can we measure the performance of different health systems, and how can we use such information to support on-going health system improvement? Those are the central questions addressed in this volume. Health policy makers have a growing interest in finding ways of encouraging health systems to improve their performance, where performance is measured against quality, efficiency or equity goals. Improving performance has the potential to reduce the tensions between rising demands and limited resources. There is also a growing demand for accountability among funders and providers of health services. This book highlights the core elements of a possible performance measurement framework to assess health systems at the international and national levels. It also addresses further challenges which remain: how do we overcome the lack of health outcome measures? How do we better align performance information and incentives with policy objectives? And how do we reconcile the traditional professional self-regulation approach with greater public accountability for health care quality?

Acting on what we know : preventing youth suicide in First Nations : the report of the Advisory Group on Suicide Prevention by Advisory Group on Suicide Prevention (Canada)( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the report of an advisory group commissioned to develop strategies for action to address the problem of suicide among First Nations youth. The introduction summarizes some key suicide data and highlights findings from previous studies to set the context in which First Nations youth suicide occurs. The report then presents four main theme areas identified for action. Part 1 addresses the need for further research & information gathering to address gaps in knowledge toward implementing an evidence-based approach. Part 2 highlights the lack of a national mandate for mental health services & co-ordinated funding mechanisms. Part 3 addresses the need for community ownership of the issue and control of developmental processes for responding to & preventing suicide. Part 4 speaks to the need to support First Nations youth in making healthy choices related to identity, resilience, culture, and spirituality. The conclusion outlines guiding principles & standards for implementing the recommendations contained in the report. Appendices include examples of suicide prevention programs, a draft tool to help assess suicide risk, and information on federally funded programs & community development approaches

Human health in a changing climate : a Canadian assessment of vulnerabilities and adaptive capacity by Jacinthe Séguin( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Human health in a changing climate is the first study of its kind in Canada. It provides an up-to-date synthesis of knowledge on how the health of Canadians is affected by the climate today, and what lies ahead under future climate change. Through an examination of key health issues of concern, along with two regional assessments (the province of Quebec and Canada's North), it develops a baseline of evidence concerning the relationship between a changing climate and direct as well as indirect impacts on health. A framework for analyzing adaptive capacity is presented, along with an exploration of how governments, communities and individuals are drawing on current capacity to address and mitigate the effects of climate on health. Each chapter makes recommendations for future action and identifies key knowledge gaps to direct future research in support of adaptation to protect the health of Canadians."--Preface p. 1
