Bush and President Vicente Fox on September 7, 2001, to promote economic growth and employment along the US Mexico border. Bilateral cooperation in the area of workforce development between the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and Mexico’s Secretariat of Labor and Social Welfare (STPS) began in 2001. This collaborative effort has resulted in the successful establishment of an Internet-based job bank (Chambanet) in Mexico, the modernization of Mexico’s occupational classification system, and the development of model One-Stop Employment Service Centers. In 2004, DOL and Mexico's Secretariat of Labor (STPS) will undertake a joint assessment in the area of labor market projections, a priority of STPS in formulating relevant policies and programs consistent with the needs and requirements of Mexico's 21st Century workforce.

Mission The mission of our Center is to support clinicians in providing safe patient care by designing and testing clinical innovations, technological solutions, and patient safety improvement systems. Our research efforts target two patient populations with compromised mobility: frail elderly and persons with disabilities. Patient Safety Area of Emphasis The Department of Veteran’s Affairs funded the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital, Tampa to establish a VISN 8 Patient Safety Center of Inquiry. The Center was originally funded for three years in 1999 and has continued to receive funding to the present time. The focus of this Center is safe mobility. Two goals for this center are: (1) To promote personal freedom and safety for frail elderly and persons with disabilities, across the continuum of care and (2) To build a "culture of safety" to support clinicians in providing safe patient care and safe working environments. Three other Centers, organized under the VA National Patient Safety Center, are in White Plains (VT), Cincinnati (OH), and Palo Alto (CA).

Presenters: Jonathan Durbin, M.A., C.P.M., Patient Safety Project Administrator, Iowa Department of Public Health, Des Moines, IA Robert W. Barnett, Director, Patient Safety Center, New York State Department of Health, Delmar, NY James B. Conway, M.Sc., Chief Operations Officer, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, MA Iowa has developed a collaboration between the Iowa Department of Public Health and the University of Iowa College of Public Health with input from providers and stakeholders to improve patient safety. The partnership was enabled by Iowa's small rural character, a climate of cooperation and hard work, a willingness to talk to one another, absence of marketplace dynamics that foster competition, a legislature willing to wait for results of collaborative efforts and research projects, and good relations with licensing boards. Key stakeholders have been involved in meetings and conferences to promote patient safety with national support from AHRQ, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Senator Tom Harkin. The Director of Public Health has created a Council of Scientific and Health Advisors that is evaluating relevant literature and data dealing with public health issues and has identified the need for additional scientific data regarding patient safety and health outcomes in Iowa. The Advisory Council is comprised of professional organizations, providers, consumers, regulators, purchasers, policymakers, administrators, and educators. This group provides input into the development of research projects, serves as a communication link with their constituents, and provides guidance on ongoing efforts to improve patient safety and health outcomes.

Researchers examine the challenges of ensuring the safety of cardiovascular devices
More than 500,000 medical devices such as life-supporting implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are marketed in the United States. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for market approval and post-approval surveillance (PAS) of medical devices. Two recent studies, which were supported by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (HS10548) through the Centers for Education and Research on Therapeutics (CERTs) program, examined issues involving the safety of cardiovascular medical devices. The studies, which were led by researchers at the Duke University CERT , are described here. O'Shea, J.C., Kramer, J.M., Califf, R.M., and Peterson, E.D. (2004, June). "Sharing a commitment to improve cardiovascular devices. Part 1: Identifying holes in the safety net." American Heart Journal 147(6), pp. 977-984. According to the FDA's Enforcement Report Index, since 1990 there have been more than 130 product recalls affecting more than 900,000 major cardiovascular devices and 16 safety alerts affecting almost 900,000 additional devices. Once a medical device is in the marketplace, its exposure to patients and real-world conditions can uncover new safety concerns that were not fully appreciated during the premarket phase. Premarketing approval is short, so long-term problems with devices, for example, pacemaker batteries that fail without warning, do not surface until after the device is on the market.

    I Introduction
    II United States III European Union IV US Enforcement Agencies V Useful Links I Introduction Governments worldwide have recognized the importance and impact of standards on their economies. Standards have significant procompetitive effects such as increasing price competition as standard products are more readily compared, and solve issues such as product compatibility and consumer safety. Countries that are leaders in developing standards are at a competitive advantage, and internationally accepted standards are fundamental to the expansion of international trade. In addition to recognizing the economic benefits of standard-setting activities, governments have an interest in standard setting in their capacity as consumers. As the purchasers of enormous quantities of goods and services, governments share with other end-users a desire to make purchases from a wide variety of high quality solutions that are interoperable. While the benefits of standards are widely recognized, so are the potential downsides. By their very nature, standards setting activities that are improperly conducted can discourage or even eliminate competition, giving rise to antitrust concerns. In their role as regulators, governments therefore have a duty to police standard setting in order to prevent abuse of the standard setting process. Governments in the United States and some other countries have taken an active role in applying antitrust laws, in particular, to the standard setting environment.

On some campuses the river is as narrow as a drainage ditch, and on others it is wider than the Mississippi. It has always been there, and it probably always will be. On our campus, the river is no metaphor: An actual stream flows through the middle of our campus, physically dividing the two areas. The dissociation these rivers create is not necessarily bad, as long as there are plenty of strategically placed bridges up and down the channel. I enjoy building and maintaining those bridges.

    In This Report Highlights of the Year Positive EHS Initiatives and Collaborations Scope of EHS Office Activities Regulatory Interactions MIT is entering its third year of implementation of a comprehensive Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Management System (EHS-MS). Its foundation is an EHS policy adopted by the Academic Council in 2000 to reflect MIT's commitment to excellent EHS performance and to an integrated approach to environmental sustainability, good health and safety practices and EHS compliance. The EHS-MS also must satisfy the requirements of MIT's Consent Decree with the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Justice Department, resulting from a 1998 inspection. Major features of the system are now in place, and responsibilities under the new system are shared throughout the Institute. The emerging system has been designed and is being implemented by faculty members and staff from departments, labs, and centers (DLCs) in partnership with the EHS Office, to ensure its usability and support of research and teaching at MIT. Its features have been endorsed by an Ad Hoc EHS Subcommittee of the Institute's EHS Council, consisting of senior faculty from highly regulated labs and programs. The key participants in this new system are department heads, principal investigators, managers and EHS coordinators of more than 50 DLCs with significant regulatory responsibilities relating to the use, handling, storage, and disposal of regulated materials and the minimization of environmental effects.

    July 9, 2001
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Chicago, IL – The National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF), the Renal Physicians Association (RPA) and The Forum of ESRD Networks (Forum) are announcing the launch of Collaborative Leadership Teams to reduce healthcare error. Four Teams have been formed as a beginning of Phase II of the End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Patient Safety Initiative. These teams will focus on four primary tasks: conducting surveys of ESRD professionals and patients in order to better understand what errors are most prominent in renal care; defining terms in order to create a classification system of healthcare error in ESRD; creating an educational “tool box” and conducting training for ESRD leadership; and determining best practices in ESRD care in order to reduce error. These Collaborative Leadership Teams grew out of the earlier, agenda-setting phase I of the project. Once these teams have developed implementation plans, the next step involves using the work products to increase patient safety directly within the renal care community. A national steering committee has been formed, and together with the Collaborative Leadership Teams, will facilitate the dissemination and adoption of the innovations devised by the Teams.

    I. Overview of ASEAN's Response: Policies and Mandates

    Sixth ASEAN Summit: Hanoi Plan of Action 2. At the 6 th ASEAN Summit, held in December 1998, the ASEAN Leaders recognised that the financial crisis has a social dimension and that the poor and vulnerable were the most affected. The leaders expressed their commitment to safeguard the interests of the poor and emphasised that the eradication of poverty shall be the ultimate goal of their strategies for recovery and growth. They " urged the international community to step up their technical and financial assistance in this area as well as ensure that the reforms in the international financial architecture include a social dimension to protect the poor 3. The concern for the poor was also given prominence in the six-year "Hanoi Plan of Action" (HPA) adopted at the 6th ASEAN Summit. Apart from initiatives to hasten economic recovery, the HPA includes the section: "Promote social development and address the social impact of the financial and economic crisis" which comprises the following actions:
