Communicable Disease Control in Emergencies: A Field Manual
Published: 2006-02-28 | ISBN: 9241546166 | 295 pages

This field manual is intended to help health professionals and public health coordinators working in emergency situations prevent, detect and control the major communicable diseases encountered by affected populations. The manual is the result of collaboration among a number of WHO departments and several external partner agencies in reviewing existing guidelines on communicable disease control and adapting them to emergency situations.
The manual deals with the fundamental principles of communicable disease control in emergencies, which are: Rapid assessment to identify the communicable disease threats faced by the emergency-affected population, including those with epidemic potential, and define the health status of the population by conducting a rapid assessment; Prevention to prevent communicable disease by maintaining a healthy physical environment and good general living conditions; Surveillance to set up or strengthen disease surveillance system with an early warning mechanism to ensure the early reporting of cases to monitor disease trends, and to facilitate prompt detection and response to outbreaks; outbreak control to ensure outbreaks are rapidly detected and controlled through adequate preparedness (i.e. stockpiles, standard treatment protocols and staff training) and rapid response (i.e.confirmation, investigation and implementation of control measures); and disease management to diagnose and treat cases promptly with trained staff using effective treatment and standard protocols at all health facilities.

Management of Dead Bodies in Disaster Situations: A Field Manual for First Responders
Published: 2004-06-30 | ISBN: 9275126305 | 55 pages

Management of the dead is one of the most difficult aspects of disaster response. It has profound and long-lasting consequences for survivors and communities. Globally, disasters claim thousands of lives each year. However, care of the deceased is often overlooked in disaster planning and the absence of guidance for first responders has recently been highlighted following several large disasters. Immediately after a major disaster, identifying and disposing of human remains are often done by local communities. Forensic specialists may not be available or unable to rapidly access the affected area. There are simple steps that first responders can take to ensure the dead are treated in a dignified way and that can assist in their identification. This "Field Manual for First Responders" presents simple recommendations for non-specialists to manage the recovery, basic identification, storage and disposal of dead bodies following disasters. It also makes suggestions about providing support to family members and communicating with the public and the media. This manual will be useful during the immediate response to a disaster and where forensic response is unavailable.
Furthermore, it will be useful for those preparing mass fatality disaster plans. The recommendations are relevant for local, regional and national authorities as well as for non-governmental organizations.

CSIRO Food and Nutritional Sciences, "Make It Safe: A Guide to Food Safety"
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0643095683 | 296 pages

All people involved with preparation of food for the commercial or retail market should have a sound understanding of the food safety risks associated with their specific products and, importantly, how to control these risks – failure to control food safety hazards can have devastating consequences. Make It Safe provides a science and risked-based intervention approach to the Australian food industry for the control of food safety hazards.

The huge variety of manufactured foods available to Australian consumers today has largely been the result of the hard work of a group of relatively small manufacturers. Small businesses make up around two-thirds of businesses in Australia’s food and beverage manufacturing industry. This book is aimed at those currently manufacturing food on a small-scale or those considering entering this market. It will assist those already operating a small business to develop a better understanding of key food safety systems, while those who are in the "start-up" phase will gain knowledge essential to provide their business with a solid food safety foundation.

The content will also be useful for students of food technology who wish to seek employment in the industry
or are planning on establishing their own manufacturing operation.

Key features
• Outlines the three food safety hazards: microbial, chemical and physical, with a special emphasis on microbial hazards and food recalls are explained
• Offers practical guidance on how to control food safety hazards
• Information is presented in a straightforward, instructive manner and key messages are highlighted at the end of each chapter

Make It Safe is the collaborative effort of food microbiologists and food technologists within CSIRO's Food and Nutritional Sciences division.

The authors have over 60 years of combined experience in helping small-scale and start up businesses with food safety and quality problems.

CSIRO Food and Nutritional Sciences conducts food and nutrition research to support the health and wellbeing of the Australian community and the sustainability and viability of the Australian food industry.

An important part of the Food and Nutritional Science portfolio is research that focuses on the hygienic production of microbiologically safe food.

The World Health Organisation (2002) indicates that in developed countries one in three people may be affected by foodborne illness each year, while OzFoodNet estimate that there are 5.4 million cases of foodborne disease annually in Australia.

Food manufacturers need to be confident that products retain their high quality from manufacturer to consumer. A safe food supply is essential for the food industry's viability and the wellbeing of both the community and the individual.

Controlling food safety hazards requires an understanding of which microbiological, chemical and physical hazards might be encountered when preparing a particular type of product.

The book helps small-scale food manufacturers identify these hazards and use this knowledge to control them. Hazard control is critical in ensuring the production and delivery of consistently safe foods and food products.

CSIRO Food and Nutritional Sciences provides food safety services to industry and conducts research focused on:

•protecting the community from food safety hazards
•anticipating and communicating emerging food safety threats
•developing new food processes and management tools that deliver safer and fresher foods
•helping to foster a regulatory system based on assessment of public health risk and quality science
•assisting partner organisations, such as the Food Safety Information Council, to educate consumers on appropriate food handling.

Denise Bohrer, "Sources of Contamination in Medicinal Products and Medical Devices"
Publisher: Wiley | 2012 | ISBN: 047048750X | 579 pages

The first one-volume guide to sources of contamination in pharmaceuticals and medical devices

Most books dealing with contaminants in medicinal products often focus on analytical methods for detecting nonspecific impurities. Key to the work of the pharmaceutical chemist, this unique reference helps identify the sources of contamination in medicinal and pharmaceutical products and medical devices. Divided into three parts, Sources of Contamination in Medicinal Products and Medical Devices covers chemical, microbiological, and physical (particulate matter) contamination, including those originating from sterilization procedures.

As compelling as a medical documentary, the book sheds light on how impurities and contaminants can enter the human body transported via a specific product or treatment. Focusing on only those medicinal products and medical devices that may lead to exposure to contaminants harmful to human health, the book offers a comprehensive, systematic look at the entire universe of medical contamination:

Chemical contaminants including residual solvents, catalyst residuals, and genotoxic impurities in active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs)
Diagnostic imaging agents (i.e., radiopharmaceuticals and contrast agents)
Microbiological and endotoxin contamination involving single and multiple dose products, medical devices, and biofilms
Contamination from sterilization procedures, residuals from radiation sterilization, ionizing radiation on packaging materials and medical devices
Medicinal gases and volatile anesthetics
Biopharmaceuticals including recombinant DNA technology products
Extractables and leachables from containers made of glass, plastics, and metal

Each section of the book contains information on what contaminants could be expected in a particular product, and how they were generated and reached that product. With up-to-date regulatory guidelines for determining contamination, as well as methods for assessing, quantifying, avoiding and removing contaminants, Sources of Contamination in Medicinal Products and Medical Devices is essential to fully understanding the specific threats that undermine the safety of medicines and medical devices.

Emerging Epidemics: Management and Control by Prakash S. Bisen and Ruchika Raghuvanshi
English | 2013 | ISBN: 1118393236 | 760 pages

A global perspective on the management and prevention of emerging and re-emerging diseases
Emerging infectious diseases are newly identified or otherwise previously unknown infections that cause public health challenges.

Re-emerging infectious diseases are due to both the reappearance of and an increase in the number of infections from a disease that is known, but which had formerly caused so few infections that it was no longer considered a public health problem. The factors that cause the emergence or re-emergence of a disease are diverse.

This book takes a look at the world's emerging and re-emerging diseases. It covers the diagnosis, therapy, prevention, and control of a variety of individual diseases, and examines the social and behavioral issues that could contribute to epidemics. Each chapter focuses on an individual disease and provides scientific background and social history as well as the current basics of infection, epidemiology, and control.

Emerging Epidemics: Management and Control offers five topics of coverage:

• Epidemics fundamentals
• Disasters and epidemics
• Biosafety
• Tuberculosis
• Plague
• Leptospirosis
• Dengue
• Japanese Encephalitis
• Chikungunya Fever
• West Nile Virus
• Chandipura Virus Encephalitis
• Kyasanur Forest Disease
• Hantavirus
• Human, Avian, and Swine Influenza
• Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome
• Nipah Virus
• Paragonimiasis
• Melioidosis
• Biowarfare and bioterrorism
• Food contamination and food terrorism
• Antimicrobial resistance
• Mosquito control
• Other disease vectors and their control
Offering an integrated, worldwide overview of the complexity of the epidemiology of infections, Emerging Epidemics will be a valuable resource for students, physicians, and scientists working in veterinary, medical, and the pharmaceutical sciences.
