Cooling newborn infants after hypoxic ischemic injury - limitations and advances over the last 30 years

In the term newborn, the main cause of global developmental delay with or without concomitant cerebral palsy is global reduction in brain oxygenation and/or perfusion. Problems in the perinatal period like obstructed labor and delayed delivery, massive bleeds from the placenta, umbilical cord around the neck, infection and other reasons causes this hypoxic-ischemic injury.

Marianne Thoresen has since the early nineties studied the neuroprotective effect of post-insult hypothermia in newborn animal models leading to successful international randomized clinical trials. World-wide, such trials were ongoing between 1999 and 2007 and then in 2010, international guidelines (Ilcor) recommended therapeutic hypothermia as standard neonatal care after hypoxic –ischemic insults. Fifteen years of clinical cooling have further improved outcome as compared to the early trials in some, but not all regions. There are many unanswered questions regards key cellular pathways and optimal delivery of therapeutic hypothermia as well as additional treatment strategies. Marianne has led the cooling program in Bristol, UK since 1998. Current result from cooling 400 asphyxiated babies, 75% have good outcome as compared 49% in the trials. This includes a reduction in mortality from 30 to 10%.

PHSP seminar: Precarious Employment

30-09-2021 to
30-11-2021 Add to iCal
Online
Location
Online via Zoom
Lead

PHSP welcome all doctoral students and researchers at KI to a seminar series in Precarious Employment. Precarious employment is related to work for remuneration that is characterized by uncertainty, low income, and limited social benefits and statutory entitlements. Over the past decade, the interest in precarious employment in public health research has been increasing as it is thought to be correlated with several adverse health effects.

Content

Dates:

  • 30 September 9.00-11.00
  • 28 October 9.00-11.00
  • To be announced

We have three seminars online with the following themes:


I. Theories and models on non-standard work

Date: 30 September 9.00-11.00
A dissection of different concepts in the field of non-standard employment. What is the difference between Precarious Employment, Employment Quality, Non-standard Employment and other related concepts such as gig and platform work and how do they relate to each other.  
The seminar will be led by Theo Bodin who is an Associate Professor at Unit of Occupational Medicine and Director of Center for Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

II. Methodological challenges in studying Non-standard Employment I

Date: October 28th; 9.00-11.00
There are several challenges to studying individuals in non-standard employment. This section of the course will cover: 1) measurement of precarious employment, including scales, survey items and register-based data as means of operationalizing measures of precarious employment (EPRES, EPI, SWEROPE etc.), and 2) sampling and recruitment of precarious employees, including convenience sampling, respondent-driven sampling methodology, register-based approaches etc.  
The seminar will be led by Nuria Matilla Santander who is a postdoctoral researcher at the Unit of Occupational Medicine.

 

III. Methodological challenges in studying Non-standard Employment II

Date: To be announced
To date, research on precarious employment and its effects on health is mostly based on cross-sectional studies. These studies are subject to several biases (e.g., common method bias) and cannot handle reverse causation properly. Moreover, changes of employment relationships (and its quality) over time are common and methods such as trajectory analyses may help to study them as predictors of poor health.  
The seminar will be led by Nuria Matilla Santander and Theo Bodin.

Academic Housekeeping: Have you considered how equally team tasks are distributed?

29-10-2021 10:00 am - 11:00 am Add to iCal
Online
Lead

Welcome to the Junior Faculty Equality Focus Group Seminar Series at the Karolinska Institutet. We are pleased to be joined by Sara Kalm from Lund University, who researches international migration, international institutions, and social movements, and has written and spoken on academic housekeeping.

Content

Academic housekeeping denotes the type of work tasks within university departments that are low-status, time-consuming, largely invisible, and that nevertheless need to be done.
Research has revealed that women carry out a disproportionate share of academic housekeeping tasks. This pattern is attributable to a complex set of factors, among them ”publish or perish”-related competitive academic culture, researcher ideals, and gender norms.
Academic housekeeping chores may partially account for women’s difficulties in advancing within academia, and therefore need to be taken seriously in research as well as in academic leadership.
This seminar treats academic housekeeping in a mainly Swedish context, which has been overlooked in research.
The aim is to specify the meaning of the concept, to describe the gendered aspects of how academic housekeeping tasks are distributed, and to discuss possible explanations for the identified pattern.
