Pack programme brings primary healthcare to the people

first_imgHealthcare workers will through the Pack be able to diagnose and manage a range of common ailments. (Image: UCT)A comprehensive low-cost medical tool, the Practical Approach to Care Kit, or Pack, which allows healthcare workers to diagnose and manage a range of common ailments, is now being rolled out by South Africa’s University of Cape Town.Pack covers 40 common symptoms and 20 conditions including cardiovascular disease, respiratory diseases, TB, HIV and Aids, women’s health, and end-of-life care. This makes it an essential for poorer, under-resourced regionsNow BMJ, a global healthcare knowledge company, has joined with the UCT Lung Institute’s Knowledge Translation Unit to develop and distribute the Pack programme to healthcare workers in low to middle-income countries.INCREASING HUMAN CAPACITY IN HEALTHCAREThis collaboration will train and support doctors, nurses and pharmacists to improve primary healthcare in underdeveloped areas. BMJ will provide technical development, marketing, sales and licensing to help implement the Pack programme globally.“It is crucial for healthcare workers to be provided with the latest evidence-based recommendations, and locally relevant information, to diagnose and treat patients effectively,” said Dr Fiona Godlee, editor-in-chief at BMJ.“We are delighted to partner with UCT to bring the programme for use in underserved communities to help improve the delivery of primary care.”In accordance with South Africa’s National Development Plan or Vision 2030, in the healthcare sectorhuman capacity is key. Managers, doctors, nurses and community health workers need to be appropriately trained and managed, produced in adequate numbers, and deployed where they are most needed.Since Pack was first launched in South Africa in 2007, it has reached 20 000 health workers in 2 000 clinics and hospitals across the country.last_img read more

What are the Benefits of GPS Tracking in the Supply Chain?

She enjoys writing easy to understand science and technology articles on her blog, Schooled By Science. When she isn’t writing, Megan enjoys watching movies and hiking with friends. Follow the Puck AI is Not the Holy Grail of Sales, at Least Not… Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#driver safety#fleet management#mobile#office productivity#productivity#security#tracking GPS and location data allows you to track items, people, and even shipments. At any given time, you can see where something is, how long it might take to reach a particular destination, and also how fast it’s traveling.On a consumer level, the information is relatively limited. You can see a phone’s — and by proxy a person’s — whereabouts.You can find a lost item using a GPS tag. You can even get real-time driving directions to a new location. But in the enterprise, and with the right tools, GPS data can reveal so much more. Consider fleet management operations, for instance, which suddenly become much more comfortable and more efficient thanks to location services.The ability to monitor your fleets whereabouts — in real-time — means so much more than just knowing where they are or what they’re doing. You can more accurately plan their routes, including detours to avoid traffic or events. You can mitigate travel and transport costs by finding much faster routes. You can even optimize plans by choosing the right driver for the right task. Maybe one drives better on country roads yet does terrible in urban areas, for example.Combine the information with advanced analytics and logistics platforms, and you can tap into more accurate, predictive insights. But what does this have to do with the supply chain? The answer is everything.GPS Tracking Is More Advanced Than EverGone are the days where you must use a proprietary or handheld display to monitor location data. Instead, you can use something you have on you at all times — your smartphone. In turn, this means that you can also access the necessary systems and information from anywhere, anytime.It’s still possible to access GPS systems from a conventional desktop computer or work-based terminal, but you now have the added option of mobile. Mobile support has revolutionized everything, especially regarding supply chain operations. Decisions must be made on a dime, with absolute accuracy and reliability.Thanks to mobile, executives and management teams can issue orders exactly when needed, no matter what they’re doing or where they are themselves. All of this productivity “given” to management can be tied together by a robust series of field service and location-tracking software. This software leads directly to greater operational efficiencies and lowers associated costs.A whopping 95 percent of businesses claim to have seen a noticeable improvement in their technician’s punctuality after adopting field service tools with built-in GPS tracking capability. A further 90 percent saw a boost in the number of work orders completed on time.What Are the Benefits?GPS and location service tools are powerful, that much is true. The real focus, however, should be on the vast number of benefits the technology can offer.1. Improved Fleet Management.As previously discussed, it’s possible to manage your fleet in real time via location data. Think of it as a direct line of communication, where you can make adjustments to improve efficiencies, arrival times, and more.2. Increased Driver Safety and Performance.Until self-driving and autonomous vehicles are used as a primary source of transport, the core of responsibility still falls on human drivers. It also means their safety, performance, and behaviors are paramount to a successful business. If a driver falls asleep at the wheel, veers off the road, and causes a massive accident, it’s going to be costly for your business. Goods will be lost, the company’s reputation will be tarnished, and both equipment and resources will be damaged.A constant tracker encourages drivers to be safe and responsible, and when they’re not, you’ll have the opportunity to remind them. You can also create a loyalty system that incentivizes good driving because you have more oversight as to who’s driving well or poorly.3. Better Security.In transportation, distribution, and logistics, there’s a lot at stake. If a vehicle, whole shipment, or even part of a shipment is stolen, the losses amount to more than just material items and their value. Your business’ reputation suffers, your customers and clients lose money, and in some cases, your drivers or personnel may even be in danger.Advanced GPS systems can be used to monitor your fleet and so much more. They can also be programmed to send alerts when something strange is going on, which gives you ample time to check in with a driver or take action if something is wrong. The faster you react to a potential threat or attack, the less damage you take.4. Enhanced Operational Efficiency.For the most part, modern GPS systems and their related software tools are heavily automated. You don’t have to monitor them constantly — instead, you’ll receive notifications when something requires your attention. This setup eliminates the need to hover over all operations constantly but at the same time affords direct micro-management opportunities that are more informed and stated.This technology improves efficiency and experiences for the drivers too. They can see information about their routes, such as congestion areas, accidents, and detour sites. It’s an essential tool for optimizing the way they drive.Additionally, less administrative resources are needed, as the vehicle-tracking tools provide precisely what information and stats office workers would be tasked with reporting.5. Boosted Customer Service.Of course, increased efficiency, faster arrival times, and safe driving habits all contribute to improved customer service. When it comes to deliveries, they’re always on time, maybe even faster. When it comes to providing clients with information about their shipments, you have more control and can report more as well — including accurate delivery schedules.You can also enable new solutions. A freight courier, for instance, could locate a particular shipment and allow antsy clients to pick it up, on the move, by meeting the driver somewhere. You can also identify incorrectly shipped or stowed packages and make faster decisions, like swapping couriers or destinations as necessary.6. More Detailed Cost Analysis.Fuel costs can be incredible, especially with today’s prices, so it’s essential to mitigate the use of company vehicles to cut down on consumption. You don’t want drivers taking their work or business vehicle out for a personal trip, for instance. When they’re on the open road, you also want them to make the most efficient route possible to reduce the amount of fuel they use and cut down on refueling costs along the way.GPS and vehicle-tracking tools can help you do precisely this. You can monitor bad habits, fuel mileage, and costs and make adjustments to meet specific goals. Want a driver to fuel up as little as possible? Calculate exactly how much fuel is needed for a trip, and communicate with your driver about how they’re keeping to said goal along the route, making minor adjustments in real-time.7. Ultimate Transparency.More control and oversight and more information will mean increased transparency across the entire operation. You know precisely what your drivers are doing, where they are, where shipments and goods are located and what the outcomes of each system will be — not just with transport, but throughout the entire supply chain. When this information is coupled with something like blockchain technology, you can monitor everything starting at the source, all the way until the goods are handed off to a partner or customer and beyond.This data can be shared with your customers and clients as needed too. Some may want to know that you’re sourcing from environmentally friendly suppliers, or they may want to monitor the quality of your goods. It’s all connected from head to toe.Give Your Business a Boost.In transportation and logistics — anything related to the supply chain, really — GPS technology and location-tracking tools are an absolute must. The technology provides a vast number of benefits beyond just more informed reporting tools. It has the potential to transform your entire operations, improving efficiencies, lowering costs, and affording more guarantees.One of those guarantees, for instance, is that you know exactly where a fleet or shipment is at a given time. You also know how long it’s going to take to reach a particular destination, and that’s true whether it’s being transported via roadways, water, or conveyor belts.

Ex Rangers striker insists cup success will be sweet for Rangers

first_imgFormer Rangers striker Derek Johnstone insists winning the Scottish FA Cup would be good for the club this season.The Gers travel to the Central Park Stadium to face Cowdenbeath in the fourth round of the Scottish FA Cup on Friday night, and Johnstone has fond memories of playing the Scottish League 2 club.“I scored twice in a 5-0 win at Ibrox and the rest, they say, is history. So I have a lot of affection for Cowdenbeath and I have happy memories of playing against them, for sure.” He said, according to Evening Times.“Hopefully Jermain Defoe can follow my example now! There have been a lot of people saying that his eyes will be opened at Central Park tonight but I am sure he has seen it all during his career and nothing will surprise him if he makes his debut there.”“The pitch is the same as everywhere else and it doesn’t matter what the surroundings are like at the end of the day. Jermain will just get on with it, as will Steven Davis if he makes his second debut for the club.”Rangers is still behind Celtic: John Hartson Manuel R. Medina – September 3, 2019 According to the former Celtic player, there’s still a massive gap between his ex-club and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.“The majority of the crowd at Central Park will be Rangers supporters so it certainly won’t be a hostile environment. It is not, with the greatest of respect Cowdenbeath, the best place to make your debut for Rangers, but that is the game that is up and the game that they have got to win if they want to go on and win the cup this season.”“That will be the ambition for Steven Gerrard and the players and the disappointment of the Betfred Cup semi-final defeat to Aberdeen will still sting a bit for them.”“It was a great chance for Rangers to get back to a final at Hampden and they were the better side on the day, but Aberdeen got their goal late on and went through.”last_img read more

Youth Treatment Units Complete Russian River Bank Restoration Project

first_imgThis partnership has allowed at risk youth to give back to the community, learn the importance of hard work, teamwork and accomplishing goals, while allowing them an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and develop healthy outlets and social skills. The Core Cognitive Restructuring Unit in combination with the Boys Treatment Unit at McLaughlin Youth Center (MYC), in Anchorage, traveled to the Kenai Peninsula to put up fencing around the river.  MYC has assisted the U.S. Forest Service and the Stream Watch Volunteers with this project for over 20 years. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Russian River opens today, and a group of youths worked over the weekend to complete the Russian River Bank Restoration Project.  The MYC Boys Treatment Unit, in Anchorage,  works with youths on substance abuse issues. However, they also offer treatment on other levels, such as victim impact, self-esteem, anger management, and life skills. The CCR Unit provides treatment to male juveniles who have been adjudicated for sexual offenses, or non-sex offenses with significant inappropriate sexual behaviors in their histories. The program itself is based on a relapse prevention model educating young offenders in the strategies and skills they will need in the community to remain offense free.
