3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A System of Health Accounts 2011 provides a systematic description of the financial flows related to the consumption of health care goods and services. As demands for information increase and more countries implement and institutionalise health accounts according to the system, the data produced are expected to be more comparable, more detailed and more policy relevant. This new edition builds on the original OECD Manual, published in 2000, and the Guide to Producing National Health Accounts to create a single global framework for producing health expenditure accounts that can help track resource flows from sources to uses. The Manual is the result of a four-year collaborative effort between the OECD, WHO and the European Commission, and sets out in more detail the boundaries, the definitions and the concepts - responding to health care systems around the globe - from the simplest to the more complicated

Evidence of the benefit of QI in general and trauma QI in particular is then laid out. The main part of the publication reviews the most common methods of trauma QI, written in a how-to fashion. This covers a wide range of techniques. The first two of these are especially emphasized as ways in which to strengthen trauma QI in the setting of low-income and middle-income countries.--Publisher's description

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guideline provides global, evidence-based recommendations on the use of safety-engineered injection devices to prevent the reuse of syringes and/or prevent needle-stick injuries in health-care workers.

The procedures covered are intramuscular (IM), intradermal (ID) and subcutaneous (SC) injections including the syringes needed for the reconstitution of medication or vaccines when required. Other procedures e.g. intravenous injections and infusions, blood collection for laboratory testing, and capillary blood sampling will be covered by another guideline to be issued separately by WHO. The policy recommendation aims to support Member States (MS) and development partners in making informed decisions on the appropriateness of introducing safety-engineered syringes for all injections in health-care settings
