Disease relevance of Policy Making


High impact information on Policy Making

  • Public health agencies across the country uniformly retain three core functions, as identified in a 1988 Institute of Medicine report: assessment, assurance, and planning and policy development [2].
  • This research study was designed to develop model extended-release (ER) matrix tablet formulations for metoprolol tartrate (100 mg) sufficiently sensitive to manufacturing variable and to serve as the scientific basis for regulatory policy development on scale-up and post approval changes for modified-release dosage forms (SUPAC-MR) [3].
  • The International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) identifies dimensions of human functioning and describes a common language for clinical practice, research, and policy development across disciplines and service systems [4].
  • This study presents basic data and an analysis method for carbon-cycle studies and also provides scientific support for policy-making efforts to control CO2 emissions in China [5].
  • METHODS: Recruited through schools, community agencies, and policy-making bodies, 188 professionals were randomized to receive prevention program materials via pamphlets (55 participants), CD-ROM (64 participants), and the Internet (69 participants) [6].

Associations of Policy Making with chemical compounds

  • A narrow legal analysis by the Canadian Supreme Court would award the mouse patent to Harvard, while a policy analysis might support the government's challenge of the patent [7].
  • It attempts to draw on the findings in both disciplines to provide suggestions for an integrated approach in policy development relating to human health and human exposure to methylmercury, especially among indigenous peoples in remote areas and in developing countries [8].
  • As a consequence, in this paper the question of risk management of the nitrate burden to ground and drinking water is analysed within the framework of comparative policy analysis [9].
  • Furthermore, this policy-making body now recommends a healthy dietary pattern, that is, one that is rich in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy products, and reduced in saturated fat, total fat, and cholesterol [10].
  • Assessing the case for mandatory folate fortification: policy-making in the face of scientific uncertainties [11].
