...On the agreement, Anette Unneberg, VP Risk and Crisis Management commented: "By joining forces, we have strengthened our expertise in Human Factors which is crucial for the understanding of human behaviour and response during crisis and emergency situations."
..."EHRs clearly enable you to work from home," said Dr Warner. "If you don't finish your notes in the clinic, you can go home, have dinner, log in, and then work until midnight, if that is what you want to do. Some people might say that improves operations because it frees up more clinic time to see more patients, and others might say it worsens operations because now they are working more hours."
"These data” - says Massimo Brusaporci, director of Alimos-Alimenta la Salute, the cooperative coordinating the Fruitylife "Fruit and vegetables, healthy and safe" project that promotes the consumption of European fruit and vegetables co-funded by the European Union with the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry Policy – “confirm the importance of Italian fruit and vegetables and the attention to their quality. Buying a product with a European quality label is a guarantee not only of its quality but also of its authenticity. Consumers and food associations are increasingly interested and attentive to the geographical origin of a food product. "
