Swan Hills Waste Treatment Center : long-term follow-up health assessment program, 1997-2002 by Alberta( )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In October 1996, a malfunction of a transformer furnace at the Swan Hills Waste Treatment Centre in Alberta led to release of gases containing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxins, and furans (PCDD/Fs) into the ambient air. A long-term environmental monitoring & human exposure assessment program has been ongoing since 1998 to continue monitoring concentrations of PCBs and PCDD/Fs in wild game & fish, to review current food consumption advisories, and protect public health for local residents. This report presents & discusses results of human blood monitoring, deer tissue monitoring, and fish tissue monitoring in the Swan Hills area, estimates daily intakes & exposure ratios of contaminants based on diet & activity surveys, and presents findings of a fall 1998 study conducted to examine the concentrations of three persistent organic pollutant groups (PCBs, PCDD/Fs, & polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons) in sediment. The purpose of the study was to explore the characteristics of natural influences such as forest fires and to trace specific sources of natural & anthropogenic inputs in the Virginia Hill area located 100 kilometres west of Swan Hills
Review of deaths occurring in Alberta during the 2009 influenza pandemic( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the first influenza pandemic in 41 years. The new strain was named influenza A(H1N1)pdm09. Alberta Health and Wellness (AHW) in collaboration with Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), developed and deployed a case report form designed specifically for the collection and reporting of cases of severe respiratory illness (SRI), hospitalized laboratory confirmed and probable influenza cases, and related deaths. Directions were provided to AHS to report all hospitalized cases and deaths occurring among individuals known to have received a positive or probable laboratory result, regardless of the cause of the death

The Alberta Oil Sands Community Exposure and Health Effects Assessment Program : summary report by Alberta( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Alberta Oil Sands Community Exposure & Health Effects Assessment Program was established following public hearings that revealed human health concerns related to air quality in relation to oil sand development. This report describes activities related to the direct measurement of personal and population exposure to environmental factors. Activities included: development of a data collection method for assessing exposure to sulphur dioxide, nitrous oxides, ozone, volatile organic compounds, and heavy metals; development, testing, and calibration of measuring instruments; development of ancillary individual measures including a health and nutrition survey; conducting a field study involving ambient outdoor monitoring at Fort McMurray, For MacKay, and an oil sands plant site, plus outdoor, indoor, and personal monitoring of specific individuals. Analyses of exposure data obtained in the field study are presented. The analyses are primarily descriptive and intended to suggest hypotheses to be further examined

Population projections for Alberta and its health regions, 1996-2016 by Yan Jin( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents population projections by age and sex for each health region of Alberta and for the province as a whole from 1997 to 2016, based on the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan registry population in 1996. Information is included on the data used to generate the projections and on the forecasting methodology used (the component method, which combines analyses of mortality, fertility, and migration). Although three fertility, one mortality, and three migration projections were considered, the report provides the projection results for a single scenario (medium mortality and fertility, and high migration)
Population projections for Alberta and its health regions : models and methods by Donald Peter Schopflocher( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents detailed technical information about the development of population projections by age and sex for each health region of Alberta and for the province as a whole from 1997 to 2016, based on the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan registry population in 1996. The cohort component method, which combines analyses of mortality, fertility, and migration, was used. The report first describes the general population model and then details separately the projections of mortality, fertility, and migration

Population projections for Alberta and its health regions : update 1998 by Donald Peter Schopflocher( Book )

3 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Population projections for Alberta and its health regions (1996 boundaries) were developed for the years 1996 to 2016 and published in previous reports. This report takes advantage of the availability of population figures for the calendar year 1997 to assess those projections and to offer adjustments necessitated by boundary changes and corrections to earlier population figures. The details of additional scenarios are also briefly described, and the availability of alternate projections for the Northern Lights Health Authority is noted
Maternal risk factors in relationship to birth outcome : report by Suzanne C Tough( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The introduction to this report reviews the effects of various factors on low birth weight in infants: smoking, alcohol and illicit drug use, smoking, and pre-term delivery. The report then presents the results of an analysis of information from the Alberta Notice of a Live Birth or a Still Birth and Newborn Record (PNOB), which is completed when an infant is born in the province. The analysis covers all women who delivered an infant, either live or stillborn, in Alberta between January 1, 1994 and December 31, 1996. Information collected on the infants included gestational age, type of birth, sex, birth weight, and visible birth defects; information on the mother included age at delivery, frequency of prenatal visits, marital status, smoking status during pregnancy, and use of alcohol or illicit drugs during pregnancy. The analysis highlights the variables of birth weight and gestational age, and assesses the effects of risk factors on those variables. The geographic distribution of the risk factors by health region is also reported and discussed. The analysis reveals a number of patterns that are potentially useful for focusing efforts to reduce the incidence of low birth weight and pre-term birth, and ultimately to improve long-term outcomes for the children
Assessment of respiratory disorders in relation to solution gas flaring activities in Alberta by Alberta( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes work undertaken to compare existing data on human health outcomes with flaring activities and other socio-economic and environmental factors. The general approach of the work comprised investigation of geographic variations in human health disorders compared to geographic variations of socio-economic and environmental factors. The study focused on the assessment of the relationship between selected disorders (asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, and upper respiratory infections) and solution gas flaring activities, with additional attention paid to rural/urban status and Aboriginal populations. Data from 1994 to 1996 were collected on population demographics, physician claims, and hospitalizations, and were compared to data on flaring activities obtained from the Alberta Energy & Utilities Board. Age-standardized rates of physician claims and hospitalizations for the disorders were estimated for each postal code area in the province. Statistical analysis was used to determine if there were any correlations between flaring activities and physician claims
