• No liquid form available therefore unsuitable for those who can’t swallow. Drug Interactions If possible, concomitant use of strong CYP3A4 inhibitors (e.g. ketoconazole, itraconazole, clarithromycin, atazanavir, indinavir, nefazodone, nelfinavir, ritonavir, saquinavir, telithromycin, voriconazole) and grapefruit juice should be avoided. If the co- administration of a strong CYP3A4 inhibitor is necessary, the dose of lapatinib should be reduced to 500mg orally once daily. After discontinuation of a strong CYP3A4 inhibitor, a 1-week washout period should be allowed before the dose of lapatinib is increased to the normal dose. If possible, concomitant use of strong CYP3A4 inducers (e.g. dexamethasone, phenytoin, carbamazepine, rifampin, rifabutin, phenobarbital, St John's Wort) should be avoided. If the co-administration of a strong CYP3A4 inducer is necessary, the dose of lapatinib should be gradually titrated from 1250mg daily up to 4500 mg/day, as tolerated. After discontinuation of a strong CYP3A4 inducer, the dose of lapatinib should be reduced to the normal dose. Drugs that prolong the QT interval (eg: nilotinib) should be avoided if possible.

Guidelines for Use of Mobile Phones and Other Devices in Hospitals For Secure, Safe Use of Wireless Communication Devices in Hospitals

Considering that the use of mobile handsets for medical practice contributes to the swift and optimum operation of medical services, the use thereof, including Calls, may be allowed in principle, on the condition that hospital staff is fully educated about the prevention of interference with medical electrical equipment. It is important, however, that each hospital confirm that the use of mobile handsets does not affect medical electrical equipment, in areas, such as operation rooms, where there is medical electrical equipment with a significant risk of interference based on the test result if they have conducted a test on their own, information from the instruction manual for specific medical electrical equipment, and other sources. Another effective measure is to introduce a system with low power output for medical practice {e.g., the personal handy phone system (PHS) for medical purposes}.

drug therapy and practice setting, and address both safe medication use and safe handling practices. Further, a process should be in place for regular re-evaluation. (10) This may be particularly important and relevant for healthcare professionals in non-oncology settings as formal training may be more limited. In these situations, the value of in depth education about oncology may prove to have little lasting impact when the opportunity to dispense oral medications is relatively low. Access to drug- specific information about the indication, dosing, and safety precautions, at a minimum, must be available as close to the point of dispensing as possible. The only exception to the requirement for ongoing training and competency assessment is for drugs that are part of a Restricted Distribution Program, where mandatory training and certification is required for prescribers, pharmacists and patients prior to dispensing.

Factors affecting the safe use of oral anticoagulants

Factors affecting the safe use of oral anticoagulants

85 Costs for the monitoring service in 2011 were obtained from the finance department at the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Methods followed those set out by the BMJ guidelines for economic submissions [296]. Costs of all consumables, reagents, depreciation of INR testing equipment and quality control materials were calculated per test. Staff costs, transport, overheads and computer equipment were calculated per patient treated. Costs which were considered common and equal to all patients (medical advice, consultant supervision, treatment of adverse events) were not included. The price of portable coagulometer and portable computer (assuming a 5 year lifespan) has no impact and the cost of the hospital computer server, being common to all groups, was not included. The price of each domiciliary phlebotomy visit was calculated by dividing salary, car lease and insurance, petrol, consumables and sample transport by the number of tests. No patient relied upon ambulance or other NHS transport assistance as domiciliary visits are used instead. We assumed that patient private travel costs were the same, whether to general practice surgery or to the hospital clinic (all patients were eligible for free public transport) and we did not collect data on these.

Guidelines and Timeline for the MAP and Oral Exam

Guidelines and Timeline for the MAP and Oral Exam

The oral exam will consist of two rounds of questions. In each round, each committee member will question the student with the Administrative Chair establishing the order of questioning. Each committee member will be allowed up to 15 minutes of time to examine the student during the 1 st round, and up to 10 minutes during the 2 nd round. The time allocated to each examiner is intended to be used primarily by the examiner; other examiners may ask brief questions of clarification during that period but extensive questioning by other examiners is not appropriate. The Administrative Chair is

Volume should be less than half full to avoid boiling over of the media as the pressure is released and vessels must not be sealed: use a foam plug or paper or tin foil cap. Do not use a stopper or have a threaded lid that is tight to avoid a build-up of pressure inside the vessel. Threaded lids must sit loose on the vessel and when the load is removed, tighten the lid to avoid drawing unsterilized air into the container as the liquid cools (once boiling has stopped).

This volume of the Guidelines for Safe Recreational Water Environments describes

Evidence suggests that although infection with free-living microorganisms or path- ogenic leptospires via recreational water use may be life-threatening, the incidence of such infection is very low and, in many cases, is limited to specific areas. As such, no specific guideline values have been recommended, although authorities should be aware of the potential hazards posed by these organisms and act accordingly. Assess- ment of the likely hazard (e.g., the likelihood of thermal warming of fresh waters) and education of water users and health professionals are important control measures.

20 Prepare and practice a rescue, relief and recovery plan should a fall occur. Plan ahead on how you will recover and return to the stand platform or ground in the event of a fall. If a fall occurs, DO NOT PANIC! Remain calm and implement your practiced rescue, relief and recovery plan. Always carry a folding screw-in tree step and emergency whistle, two-way radio, or cell phone in an accessible pocket of your vest for self-rescue use in the event of a fall. Hanging or suspension for extended periods of time can cause discomfort, serious injury, or death. Always keep the suspension relief/deer drag strap in an easily accessible pocket for use in the event of a fall.

Guidelines for the Safe Prescribing, Dispensing and Administration of Cancer Chemotherapy

Guidelines for the Safe Prescribing, Dispensing and Administration of Cancer Chemotherapy

Prescribing, dispensing and administration errors relating to chemotherapy that result in patient harm are well documented in the literature. Medication errors can occur for a number of reasons including procedural, technical and behavioural reasons. Errors can occur when human and system factors interact with the complex process of prescribing, dispensing and administration to produce an unintended and potentially harmful outcome. The complex scheduling and nomenclature associated with chemotherapy regimes has resulted in use of abbreviations and acronyms which can easily be misinterpreted. Dosages are not always expressed consistently leading to incorrect interpretation of individual and total doses for treatments. The complexity of calculations

International Guidelines on Safe Load Securing for Road Transport

International Guidelines on Safe Load Securing for Road Transport

Loads must be placed on the vehicle so that they will not injure persons, cause vehicle instability in transit, shift or move within the vehicle or fall from the vehicle. Every day incidents and collisions occur in workplace and on the road resulting from loads that have not been properly stowed and/or secured. These IRU International Safe Load Securing Guidelines for Road Transport provide physical and technical background information as well as practical load securing rules for road transport. For more details reference is made to international standards. They do not overwrite the extensive test results available all over Europe for specific types of load or specific transport conditions, nor do they describe in detail all possible solutions for all possible loads. These guidelines are aimed at all participants involved in the transport chain that plan, prepare, supervise or check transport of goods by road to achieve efficient, safe and sustainable transport of all goods moved by road.

Safe Driving Guidelines for Western Australian Government Agencies

Safe Driving Guidelines for Western Australian Government Agencies

Central to the Safe System (see Figure 1) is an acknowledgement of our limited ability as humans to tolerate physical force. Human tolerance levels in crashes are shown in Figure 2. The Safe System aims to manage crash energies to prevent death and serious injury. It also recognises human error in the system is inevitable no matter how educated and compliant we are in obeying traffic laws. In Sweden it was estimated that even with total compliance with current speed limits, seatbelt wearing laws and drink driving laws about half of all road trauma would remain.

SUSTAINABILITY and due diligence GUIDELINES Draft July 2004

SUSTAINABILITY and due diligence GUIDELINES Draft July 2004

1.1 Purpose of these guidelines The World Wind Energy Association (WWEA) has produced these guidelines to promote greater consideration of environmental, social and economic aspects in the sustainability assessment of new wind projects. The guidelines are also relevant to the management and operation of existing wind power schemes. Thorough sustainability assessments should ensure that detrimental social and environmental impacts are avoided, mitigated or compensated. Of necessity, the principles articulated in these guidelines are generic since each project will have its own unique set of circumstances infl uenced by scale, geographic location, social, legal and political constructs. The guidelines will need to be adapted to the specifi c context of each particular project.

Draft Framework and Guidelines for Nigerian Content in Information Technology.

Digital technologies have been the most transformative force in the world over the latter half of the 20 th century. No aspect of modern life or sector of business has been left untouched by its transformative power which has led to the destruction of entire industries as well as the creation of new jobs and lines of business. Digital technologies have fanned the flames of globalization and transformed the world into a microcosm, as time and distance have become easily dealt with by the click of a button. As these changes continue to happen, forward thinking governments realise the need to evolve policies and guidelines to serve as a foundation for managing the effects of technology in people, businesses and society.
