Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff has lowered the threat level to yellow (elevated)
The Department of Homeland Security in consultation with the Homeland Security Council, has declared the national threat level listed above. The U.S. Intelligence Community believes that Al Qaida has entered an operational period worldwide, and this may include attacks in the United States. It is prudent to reiterate the state of preparedness of this campus and the continued commitment of the University administration to mitigate the potential impact this action could have on the Oregon State University community. Any change in the threat level pursuant to military actions or threats of terrorism will be closely monitored, as will any specific threats to the safety of the OSU community. Information concerning the safety and security of this campus will be disseminated to the community through all available avenues of campus communication, and if applicable, any recommended campus actions will be detailed. Oregon State University and the Department of Public Safety/Oregon State Police automatically implements response protocols based upon the current threat level at the national and local level to mitigate risk at this institution. These response protocols activate different levels of operational activities undertaken by the DPS/OSP to provide enhanced services to the community and to engage the community in a collaborative state of vigilance against threatening activities.

Tulare (VMTRC) Dairy Food Safety Laboratory This laboratory was started in October of 1996 and was officially dedicated on December 16, 1996. Paul Rossitto is the Staff Research Associate (career employee) who moved from Davis and works in the lab on a daily basis. He has a long history of research accomplishments, student/staff training, and collaborative activities. We have several projects underway and have completed a number of projects that will result in technology transfer and publications. The Dairy Food Safety Lab in Tulare is now a site for conducting clinical vaccine trials due to the large presence of the dairy industry in Tulare County. Our location was chosen because of our ability to provide large numbers of animals quickly at the appropriate age and condition. Each year, after their exposure to the DFSL in Tulare, Tulare High School interns decide to become food animal veterinarians and have gone on to UC Davis for their undergraduate training. All have expressed an interest in working for the DFSL at UC Davis. The end of the 1997-01 school year will have trained 14 new Tulare High School students trained at the VMTRC DFSL.
The Dairy Food Safety Laboratory recognizes the major contributions of our student force and is committed to continually providing student training for the dairy industry. We also have students from dairy programs at UC Davis, Cal Poly-SLO and Fresno State attending our program at the VMTRC DFSL.

    Health Care Antitrust Enforcement Issues
    NOVEMBER 9, 1995 Good afternoon. It is a pleasure to be here today as a panelist for the Health Trustee Institute to discuss antitrust, hospital mergers, and innovation in health care delivery. As usual, the views I express are my own. They are not necessarily those of the Commission or any other Commissioner. Unprecedented developments in health care markets, including the emergence of innovative types of collaborative arrangements, have added to the challenge of antitrust enforcement in the health care arena. FTC and Department of Justice staff monitor the evolution of markets and provide as much information and guidance as possible to the public. They meet periodically with representatives of various provider groups and payers to discuss new developments in the health care industry. Meetings such as these contributed to issuance by the Agencies of an expanded set of health care Statements of Enforcement Policy last September. Before I discuss the Statements of Enforcement Policy, some staff advisory opinions relating to the Statements, and proposed antitrust exemptions and loosening of antitrust standards under the proposed Medicare legislation, let me describe briefly some basic antitrust principles as they apply to health care. Antitrust law is based on the premise that competition generally benefits consumers by producing the best mix of quality, goods and services at the lowest prices. In assessing possible restraints on competition, the Commission examines the market from the point of view of the consumer. The Commission seeks to determine whether the actions in question will promote or hinder consumers' interest in being able to choose among a variety of quality and price options according to their own needs.

MARCH 7, 2002 Chairman Rohrbacher, Congressman Gordon, and Members of the Subcommittee: I am particularly pleased to appear with my colleague, Mr. Venneri, from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), with whom we work very closely, and with my colleagues from private industry who provide valuable insight and expertise for our programs. As we all recognize, the security of our National Airspace System (NAS) is foremost in everyone's mind at this time. We appreciate the support that Congress has shown for our efforts in improving security these past few months. Although aviation security has understandably been the focus in recent months, safety of the system is also paramount. Even though the United States enjoys the world’s safest air transportation system, we know that we must further reduce the aircraft accident rate and employ new technologies and procedures to increase efficiency as traffic grows.

    • Commercial screening assays: In 2002, a study was initiated to validate the adaptability of commercially available screening tests for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in the detection of the abnormal protease-resistant pathogenic protein (PrP CWD ) associated with chronic wasting disease (CWD). Based on APHI study results, one of the commercial screening tests, BioRad-ELISA, was recommended for use in testing deer and elk brains during the 2002 hunting season in Colorado and was adapted and implemented by Colorado Division of Wildlife as part of their routine screening procedure. The second phase of the validation of these commercial BSE screening tests for CWD has been initiated. Groups from the game and livestock industries as well as diagnostic companies have expressed their interest in this study and have contributed to the funding of this study. Surveillance system development: APHI researchers participated with scientists from the Colorado Division of Wildlife, Colorado Department of Agriculture, CSU- Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, and the US Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA:APHIS) in designing and implementing a surveillance system for CWD in free-ranging cervids in Colorado. The system will be considered a model for other states with similar wildlife disease issues.

    Bureau of Primary Health Care Health Disparities Collaboratives EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The HDC is an innovative health initiative that seeks to: (1) generate and document improved health outcomes for underserved populations; (2) transform clinical practice through new evidence-based models of care; (3) develop infrastructure, expertise and multi-disciplinary leadership to improve health status; and (4) build strategic partnerships. PARTICIPATION Since 1998, over 450 Bureau-supported health centers have participated in Collaboratives focusing on diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma, cancer, and depression. Pilot HDCs have focused on prevention, diabetes prevention, cancer screening, finance/redesign, and perinatal/patient safety. INFRASTRUCTURE/SUPPORT In 1998, BPHC funded one Primary Care Association/Clinical Network team in each of five regional clusters, in addition to National Clinical Networks focused on oral health, migrant farm worker health care, and health care for the homeless. These organizations worked with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) to develop the infrastructure to support teams participating in the Health Disparities Collaboratives. MODELS The HDCs have three main components: a Learning Model, a Care Model, and an Improvement Model. The Learning Model is the education portion of the initiative and consists of two parts: Learning Sessions and Action Periods. Learning Sessions are three sessions that train interdisciplinary teams from each health center to become a community of active learners. In the Action Periods, which take place between Learning Sessions, teams share information, through the collection and submission of data and progress reports, and participation in conference calls and listserv discussions.

    Finding One: Patient safety cannot be accomplished without interdisciplinary practice approaches.
    Safety depends upon implementation of a unified interdisciplinary system that addresses the realities of practice and patient care. Education and practice methods must stress interdisciplinary team approaches. Finding Two: Patient safety gains are unlikely to be achieved at a satisfactory pace in the absence of revolutionary changes. The more common, relatively slow evolutionary processes that tend to govern change in the health care system are considered to be inadequate to counter the present level of threat to patient safety. Finding Three: Current system discontinuities need to be confronted towards the aim of building a true, safety-oriented system of care. Discontinuities exist often at the interfaces between various components of existing health care systems and significant improvements are required in the ways in which such interfaces are managed. Information has a major role to play in reducing the discontinuities and enhancing the ability of health care teams to manage successfully through the interfaces. Finding Four: A significant cultural change in medicine and nursing is required to achieve the needed gains in patient safety.
