Confronting the Burden of Injuries: A Global Perspective
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

Confronting the Burden of Injuries- A Global Perspective is a course offered by the Department of International Health and the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University. This course is intended to guide students interested in working on injury control in areas with little to no tradition in injury prevention from a public health perspective. Students will learn to define the injury problem and assess its magnitude; identify data sources and assess the quality of the data; identify which agencies or institutions should be involved in the solution of the problem; identify which interventions are in place and need to be implemented and evaluated; produce a strategic plan for the establishment and/or improvement of injury prevention programs in such areas; and present such a plan to authorities in a compelling manner.

Statistical Reasoning II
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

Statistical Reasoning in Public Health II provides an introduction to selected important topics in biostatistical concepts and reasoning through lectures, exercises, and bulletin board discussions. The course builds on the material in Statistical Reasoning in Public Health I , extending the statistical procedures discussed in that course to the multivariate realm, via multiple regression methods. New topics, such as methods for clinical diagnostic testing, and univariate, bivariate, and multivariate techniques for survival analysis will also be covered. These topics will be reinforced with many "real-life" examples drawn from recent biomedical literature. While there are some formulae and computational elements to the course, the emphasis is again on interpretation and concepts.

Video: Intoxications from organic solvents
Rating

In this short video of 25 seconds we illustrate how organic solvents work. This can be a helpful demonstration in classes where you teach about organic solvents and health effects. Organic solvents dissolve fat. Here we watch two dishes. One contains water, the other contains white spirit. White spirit is a mixture of organic solvents which for instance is used in paint. When oil is added to the water, you see that the oil gathers in bubbles at the top, and the fat does not dissolve in the water. When oil is added to the white spirit, the oil immediately disappears, as it dissolves into the white spirit. This is how organic solvents work – they dissolve fat. This is relevant for humans because our nervous system is normally protected by fat tissue. The organic solvents remove this protection and harm the nerves and the brain.

The WHO Multicentre Growth Reference Study (MGRS)
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

The WHO Multicentre Growth Reference Study (MGRS) was undertaken between 1997 and 2003 to generate new growth curves for assessing the growth and development of infants and young children around the world.

The MGRS collected primary growth data and related information from approximately 8500 children from widely different ethnic backgrounds and cultural settings (Brazil, Ghana, India, Norway, Oman and the USA).

The new growth curves are expected to provide a single international standard that represents the best description of physiological growth for all children from birth to five years of age and to establish the breastfed infant as the normative model for growth and development.

The statement presents the recommended cut-offs, summarizes the rationale for their adoption and advocates for their harmonized application in the identification of 6 to 60 month old infants and children for the management of severe acute malnutrition. It reviews the implications on patient load, on discharge criteria and on programme planning and monitoring. It also recommends the increase of the MUAC cut-off for defining severe acute malnutrition in children 6 months to 5 years of age from 110 mm to 115 mm.
