In setting research priorities and objectives for community-based research, the Aboriginal
Women’s Health Research Advisory Council and the researchers shall give serious and due
consideration to the benefit of the community concerned.
In assessing community benefit, regard shall be given to the widest possible range of
community interests, whether the groups in question be Aboriginal or non Aboriginal, and
also to the impact of research at the local, regional or national level.
This book is designed as a course text for students of Irish Politics and Public
Administration. It may also be used to accompany courses in introductory politics, policy
analysis and comparative politics or public administration. A range of Irish public policy
topics are presented and explained—each by reference to a distinct framework for
analysis. The book is intended to highlight (through readily presented Irish examples) the
variety of alternative explanations available to students of politics and public
administration who are interested in understanding how policy is made....
Independent, private-sector organization whose trustees appoint the

The terms of reference that you gave me and my fellow members of the National
Multicultural Advisory Council asked us to ‘develop a report which recommends on a
policy and implementation framework for the next decade, that is aimed at ensuring
that cultural diversity is a unifying force for Australia’. We have now completed this
task and I am delighted to forward to you our report which we have entitled,
Australian Multiculturalism for a New Century: Towards Inclusiveness.
Today’s ‘renaissance’ of the railways has only been possible thanks to a multitude of
powerful research initiatives aimed at making fundamental improvements in the system
as a whole. Now, keeping rail at the forefront as the most environmentally friendly major
transport mode requires an even more rapid adoption of new technologies for clean and
efﬁ cient energy.
Plans must immediately be set in motion to facilitate eventual outpatient care and follow-up.
The DOHMH must be notified of this patient and participate in the discharge planning, ideally early in the patient’s hospital course. An individual does not necessarily have to be AFB smear-negative to be released from the hospital to home. There is no minimum number of days the patient needs to be on treatment prior to discharge if the patient is being discharged to an appropriate setting.
During 1993–2003, incidence of tuberculosis (TB) in the United States decreased 44% and is now occurring at a historic low
level (14,874 cases in 2003). The Advisory Council for the Elimination of Tuberculosis has called for a renewed commitment to
eliminating TB in the United States, and the Institute of Medicine has published a detailed plan for achieving that goal.
Participants stressed the importance of community input and review more often than anything
else. The Cross Cultural Health Care Program’s Voices of the Communities project and
subsequent community profiles employed a process in which profiles where either written by a
community member or a community member and CCHCP staff. Each profile was reviewed by
other community members and any resulting changes were incorporated in the final product.
The process resulted in excellent products. The UW Medical Center employs a similar process
for its Culture Clues.
Armor materials are remarkable: Able to stop multiple
hits and save lives, they are essential to our military capability
in the current conflicts. But as threats have increased,
armor systems have become heavier, creating a huge burden
for the warfighter and even for combat vehicles.
In response to the enactment by the U.S. Congress of the Intermodal
Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA), the Federal Highway
Administration (FHWA) requested that the National Research Council (NRC)
conduct a study on nonconventional concrete technology for renewal of the
highway infrastructure. ISTEA directed the FHWA to initiate a comprehensive,
long-range infrastructure research and development (R&D) program.
This study was mandated by Congress in the National
Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2002
(P.L. 107-107), Section 253: Study and Report on Effectiveness
of Air Force Science and Technology Program
Changes (see Appendix A).
Governance arrangements must cover all internal agency reporting lines and lines of accountability, including
relevant agency boards or executive committees. For example the ‘sponsor’ may report directly to the agency
head and minister, as well as to an internal agency executive committee, and to external advisory or steering
groups; the project manager may report to the project ‘leader’ or directly to the ‘sponsor’ but may also be
accountable to an ad hoc working group or task force.
The other buffer is the Media Council (Sectoral Council for the Media). This council is an
independent advisory body composed of industry professionals and academics. Legally, they
have no binding authority and they are not part of the contract creation process. They make
non-binding recommendations to the government whether new services should be enacted,
based on proposals put forth by the public service broadcasters (Donders 2010: 52).
A 12-person Board of Governors oversees the public service broadcasters (VRT 2010).
