Antimicrobial resistance issues and options : workshop report ( )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Antibiotic resistance is neither a surprising nor a new phenomenon. It is an increasingly worrisome situation, however, because resistance is growing and accelerating while the world's tools for combating it decrease in power and number. In addition, the cost of the problem--especially of multidrug resistance--in terms of money, mortality, and disability are also rising. This book summarizes a workshop on antimicrobial resistance held by the Forum on Emerging Infections. The goal of the Forum on Emerging Infections is to provide an opportunity for representatives of academia, industry, government, and professional and interest groups to examine and discuss scientific and policy dilemmas of common interest that are specifically related to research on and the prevention, detection, and management of emerging infections. Organized as a topic-by-topic synthesis of presentations and exchanges during the workshop, the book highlights lessons learned, delineates a range of pivotal issues and the problems they raise, and proposes some simplified ideas about possible responses

The resistance phenomenon in microbes and infectious disease vectors implications for human health and strategies for containment : workshop summary ( )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The resistance topic is timely given current events. The emergence of mysterious new diseases, such as SARS, and the looming threat of bioterrorist attacks remind us of how vulnerable we can be to infectious agents. With advances in medical technologies, we have tamed many former microbial foes, yet with few new antimicrobial agents and vaccines in the pipeline, and rapidly increasing drug resistance among infectious microbes, we teeter on the brink of loosing the upperhand in our ongoing struggle against these foes, old and new. "The Resistance Phenomenon in Microbes and Infectious Disease Vectors examines our understanding of the relationships among microbes, disease vectors, and human hosts, and explores possible new strategies for meeting the challenge of resistance
Managed care systems and emerging infections challenges and opportunities for strengthening surveillance, research, and prevention : workshop summary, based on a workshop of the Forum on Emerging Infections, Division of Health Sciences Policy, Institute of Medicine ( )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on a diverse and committed membership, the Forum on Emerging Infections convened the third in a series of workshops-this one to examine the implications of managed care systems in the fight against infectious disease. As health plans attempt to coordinate and control the use of medical services, there will be inevitable impacts on the management of infectious disease. Early evidence indicates that managed care is making progress, but there is also the potential for problems
Biological threats and terrorism assessing the science and response capabilities : workshop summary by Stacey Knobler( )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the wake of September 11"th" and recent anthrax events, our nation's bioterrorism response capability has become a priority for policymakers, researchers, public health officials, academia, and the private sector. In a three-day workshop, convened by the Institute of Medicine's Forum on Emerging Infections, experts from each of these communities came together to identify, clarify, and prioritize the next steps that need to be taken to prepare and strengthen bioterrorism response capabilities. From the discussions, it became clear that of utmost urgency is the need to cast the issue of a response in an appropriate framework that can attract the attention of Congress and the public and garner sufficient and sustainable support for such initiatives. Numerous workshop participants agreed that there are many gaps in the public health infrastructure and countermeasure capabilities that must be prioritized and addressed in order to assure a rapid and effective response to another bioterrorist attack

Public health systems and emerging infections assessing the capabilities of the public and private sectors : workshop summary ( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Forum on Emerging Infections was created in 1996 in response to a request from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health. The goal of the forum is to provide structured opportunities for representatives from academia, industry, professional and interest groups, and government to examine and discuss scientific and policy issues that relate to research, prevention, detection, and management of emerging infectious diseases. A critical part of this mission has been the convening of a series of workshops. Public Health Systems and Emerging Infections summarizes the fourth in a series of five workshops. With a focus on our knowledge and understanding of the role of private and public health sectors in emerging infectious disease surveillance and response, the participants explored the effects of privatization of public health laboratories and the modernization of public health care. The issues discussed included epidemiological investigation, surveillance, communication, coordination, resource allocations, and economic support
