Abstract
The Children's Health Resource Centre was created to give children, youth and parents access to information concerning the health issues of children. As humans, whether we are children or adults, have a tendency to deal with situations better if we feel that we have some control. Knowledge empowers us-gives us that control. It enhances our ability to cope and frequently improves our recovery as well as our recovery rate. The Resource Centre is there to supply that knowledge--to become a Provincial Inquiry line for children's health. This paper will encompass the why, how, when, response, effect and future plans of the Children's Health Resource Centre.

Abstract
In a relatively short period, OHS has absorbed multiple call centers supporting different LOBs from various acquisitions, functioning with diverse standards, processes, and technologies. However, customer and employee satisfaction is predicated on OHS's ability to thoroughly integrate these heterogeneous call centers. The integration was initiated and has successfully progressed through a balanced program of focused leadership and a defined strategy which includes site consolidation, sound performance management philosophies, and enabling technology. Benefits have already been achieved with even more substantive ones to occur as the integration continues to evolve.

Abstract
Patients' mental health issues have become an increasing focus of Canadian family physicians' practices. A self-help approach can help meet this demand, but there are few guidelines for professionals about how to use mental health self-help resources effectively.
To aid health professionals in integrating self-help materials into their mental health practices.
A resource library of print, audiotape, and videotape self-help materials about common mental health issues was developed for a rural community. The materials were prescreened in order to ensure high quality, and health professionals were given training on how to integrate self-help into their practices. The library was actively used by both health professionals and community members, and most resources were borrowed, particularly the nonprint materials. Health professionals viewed the resources as a way to supplement their mental health practice and reduce demands on their time, as patients generally worked through the resources independently. Some improvements are planned for future implementations of the program, such as providing health professionals with a "prescription pad" of resources and implementing Stages of Change and stepped-care models to maximize the program's effectiveness.
Although more evidence is needed regarding the effectiveness of self-help within a family practice context, this program offers a promising way for family physicians to address mild to moderate mental health problems.

Abstract
The medical management of radiation accident victims is based on a rapid assessment and reconstruction of the radiation dose and quality combined with prompt, targeted treatment efforts performed at specialized medical units. To facilitate such medical emergency preparedness in Sweden, the National Board of Health and Welfare has recently established a new Centre for Radiation Medicine, located at the Karolinska institute in Stockholm. Among the tasks of this centre are also to contribute with health care information, education, advice and carry out research activities in areas related to medical effects of ionizing radiation. A close collaboration is being established with the Swedish Radiation Protection Authority and also with various other national and international bodies. The initiation of the Centre for Radiation Medicine comes in parallel with a rapid development of the understanding of and treatment options for patients acquiring an acute radiation syndrome, mainly due to improved diagnostic procedures combined with novel therapeutic options, such as stem cell transplantation and cytokine administration.
