Kongresi, seminari, skupovi

Od strane EU COST financiran projekat Mreza za evaluaciju Jedinstvenog Zdravlja (NEOH) podrzao je treci trening na temu „Evalucija Jedinstvenog Zdravlja“, s ciljem da upozna učesnike sa osnovama evaluacije općenito, a posebno s obzirom na evaluaciju Jednistvenog Zdravlja pomoću protokola razvijenog u NEOH projektu. Značajan dio treninga odnosio se na evaluciju nadzora bolesti, a ciljana grupa bili su učesnici iz država regiona.

Trening je održana od 13. do 15. Septembra 2017. u Sarajevu (BiH) na Medicinskom fakultetu Univerziteta u Sarajevu.

Prvog dana učesnicima je iskazana dobrodošlica ispred lokalnih organizatora, Prof. Semra Cavaljuga (Medicinski fakultet) and Dr Sabina Seric-Haracic (Veterinarski fakultet), nakon čega je prorektor Univerziteta u Sarajevu Prof. Aleksandra Nikolic (Poljoprivredno-prehrambeni fakultet) prezentirala definicije i koncepte evaluacije, objasnila različite pristupe i tipove evaluacije uz aktivnu diskusiju sa učesnicima o složenim sistemima i nepredviđenim posljedicima. Dr Barbara Haesler, Royal Veterinary College (London, UK), obradila je ključne elemente Teorije Promjena i objasnila kako formulirati pitanja za evaluaciju. U nastavku, učesnici se na lično odabranim problemima ili programima iz njihovog rada (studije slučaja) imali priliku da primjene teorije o kojima su slušali.

Drugog dana, Dr Sabina Seric-Haracic je prezentirala pregled aktivnosti unutar NEOH projekta. Dr Simon Ruegg, University of Zurich se nadovezao sa osnovama Teorije Sistema i prezentirao NEOH alate za razumijevanje i mapiranje sistema unutar šireg konteksta. Učesnici treninga su potom sami opisali sisteme koje su kontekst za predložene studije slučaja, što je stimuliralo intezivnu i diskusiju, te ukazalo na složenost okosnica i perspektiva u okviru izazova Jedinstvenog Zdravlja (npr. pad pokrivenosti vakcinacijom u Bosni i Hercegovini uključujući i vakcinaciju protiv gripa, rast broja pasa lutalica u Makedoniji, trihineloza ljudi zbog konzumacije infestiranog mesa domaćih i divljih svinja u Grčkoj).

Treći dan bio je posvećen evaluaciji nadzora bolesti. Dr Marisa Peyre from CIRAD (France) i Dr Barbara Haesler govorile su o osnovama evaluacije nadzora bolesti, kao i ekonomici nadzora nadovezujući se sa dostupnim alatima za dizajn nadozora bolesti i njegovoj evaluaciji, a koje učesnici mogu iskoristiti kako bi primjenili svoje novo znanje o evaluaciji. Dr John Berezowski ispred Instituta za Veterinarsko javno zdravstvo u Bern-u (Švicarska) objasnio je koncept Jednistveno zdravlje u nadzoru bolesti, te prezentirao viziju, misiju i aktivnosti Međunarodnog društva za nadzor nad zaraznim bolestima.

Trening je završen prezentacijom od strane učesnika o ishodima mapiranja i evaluacije njihovih studija slučaja.

Training school on “Evaluation of One Health” at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Sarajevo

The EU COST funded project Network for Evaluation of One Health (NEOH) provided its third training school on “Evaluation of One Health” with the aim to give participants an introduction to evaluation in general and One Health evaluation in particular using the framework developed in the NEOH. There was also a strong focus on the evaluation of disease surveillance, while the specifical target were trainees from inclusiveness countries.

The training school took place from the 13-15th of September 2017 in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and was hosted by the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Sarajevo.

On the first day, participants were warmly welcomed by the local organizers, Prof. Semra Cavaljuga (Faculty of Medicine) and Dr Sabina Seric-Haracic (Veterinary Faculty). Following this, the vice-rector of the University of Sarajevo Prof. Aleksandra Nikolic (Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences Sarajevo) presented the basic definitions and concepts of evaluation, gave insights into evaluation approaches and evaluation types and stimulated animated discussions about complex systems and unintended consequences. Dr Barbara Haesler, Royal Veterinary College (London, UK), explored with participants the key elements of Theories of Change and how to frame evaluation questions. Afterwards, trainees had time to work on a problem or program of their choice (case studies) and apply the theories covered to theirs own context.

On the second day, Dr Sabina Seric-Haracic presented an overview of the work conducted in the NEOH. This gave a useful starting point for Dr Simon Ruegg, University of Zurich, who introduced basics on systems theory and presented the practical NEOH tools to understand and map such systems within the framework elaborated. Trainees were encouraged to describe the systems in which their case studies were set, which stimulated intense and lively discussions and highlighted the intricate complex trade-offs and perspectives within One Health challenges (i.e. reduction in vaccination coverage in Bosnia and Herzegovina including Influenza, high number of street dogs in Macedonia, trichinellosis from pork and wild boar consumption in Greece).

The third day was dedicated to the evaluation of surveillance. Dr Marisa Peyre from CIRAD (France) and Dr Barbara Haesler gave an introduction to evaluation of surveillance in general and economics of surveillance in particular before presenting publicly available surveillance design and evaluation tools that trainees could access and use to apply their newly gained evaluation knowledge. Dr John Berezowski from the Veterinary Public Health Institute in Bern (Switzerland) explained the concept of One Health surveillance and gave an overview of the vision, mission and activities of the International Society for Infectious Disease Surveillance.

The training school was rounded off by participants presenting the outcomes of their case study discussions.
