1st Workshop on Pilot Implementation of the Performance Assessment Tool for quality improvement in Hospitals (PATH) : Barcelona, Spain, 22-24 February 2004
Workshop on Pilot Implementation of the Performance Assessment Tool for quality improvement in Hospitals (PATH) (1st : 2004 : Barcelona, Spain); World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2004 )
Abstract

The objective of this workshop was to organize the pilot implementation of a Performance Assessment Tool for quality improvement in Hospitals (PATH) developed by WHO Europe in a sample of hospitals in six European countries (Belgium, Denmark, France, Lithuania, Poland/Silesia Region and Slovakia) and two countries outside Europe (South Africa/Kwazulu Natal and Canada/Ontario). The PATH project aims to provide tools to support hospitals in assessing their performance, questioning their own results, and translating them into actions for improvement, or benchmarking. At the workshop, a group of experts in performance assessment and country focal points drawn from hospital managers, physicians, technical experts in information systems, etc., drafted a strategic plan for each participating country, identifying key stakeholders, roles and responsibilities and priorities for action, agreed on recommendations on standard operational definitions of indicators across countries, and discussed data collection issues and data quality control mechanisms. A calendar for implementation was agreed upon. All participants were aware that comparisons are sensitive and should be interpreted with great caution because of varying local contexts. This is incremented at international level. PATH relies as much as possible on available data to minimize the burden of data collection. A template for data collection is being prepared. Mobilizing staff at all levels will be an important factor to the access of the project

A European network of nongovernmental organizations for action on alcohol : report on a WHO meeting, Padua, Italy, 28-30 November 1994
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1996 )
Abstract

The success of the WHO European Alcohol Action Plan depends on the commitment and active participation of international organizations, Member States and governmental and nongovernmental agencies at national and local levels. In particular, a network of alcohol and health advocacy groups is needed to support nongovernmental action at local, national and international levels in line with the Action Plan. A meeting was organized by the WHO Regional Office for Europe as a first step in creating such a network. Representatives from nongovernmental organizations in the field of alcohol use attended. The participants agreed that existing networks and umbrella bodies should be brought together and used for this purpose. They discussed effective means of communication and adopted a timetable of coordinated action in support of the Plan. They would also work towards strengthening nongovernmental organizations' input to the WHO Conference on Health, Society and Alcohol in Paris in 1995

Accidents: report on a WHO coordination meeting of experts, Juermala, Latvia 27-30 November 1997
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1998 )
Abstract

The Regional Office is developing a series of brief technical brochures aimed at local authorities, to provide them with accurate and practical information on environment and health issues. One of the topics in the series is accidents, an area of environment and health where local authorities constantly face difficult situations. Pamphlets are to be issued covering local policy for accident prevention, child accidents, accidents and older people, fire safety, water safety, road safety, home safety, playground safety and sport and leisure safety. Since close coordination is needed between the authors of the various documents in order to avoid overlaps and to ensure that most of the important topics are tackled, a meeting was convened to allow discussion among the specialists on the basis of the papers prepared by them. The background documentation for these discussions was a detailed table of contents produced by each author prior to the meeting. The participants also proposed illustrations and case studies, finalized the detailed contents of the pamphlets, and drew up a timetable setting the deadlines for the first draft, the final text and the layout
