  1. 1. Managing knowledge sharing of extreme weather induced impacts on land transport infrastructure : Case study of the Swedish Transport Administration

    Författare :Monika Rydstedt Nyman; Lars Nyberg; Magnus Johansson; Eva Liljegren; Peter Söderholm; Karlstads universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lessons learned; risk management; climate change adaptation; accident investigation method; extreme weather events; natural hazard; land transport infrastructure; maintenance; lärande; kunskapsåterföring; risk hantering; klimatanpassning; olycksutredningsmetod; naturolyckor; landtransport infrastruktur; underhåll; Risk and Environmental Studies; Risk- och Miljöstudier;

    Sammanfattning : Extreme weather events and effects of climate change are threats to the transport sector’s functionality and safety. Risk management in this context implies a necessity to focus on the connection between near-term experiences and coping strategies on one hand, and long-term adaptation analyses on the other.

  2. 2. Hip fracture - Mortality and residual lifetime risk of fractures

    Författare :My von Friesendorff; Ortopedi - klinisk och molekylär osteoporosforskning; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hip fracture; women; men; sex; age; survival; mortality; subsequent fracture; fracture risk; residual lifetime; cause of death; long term;

    Sammanfattning : Hip fracture is the most severe clinical manifestation of bone fragility. Hip fracture predominantly affects an already frail population and is associated with multi-cause morbidity and high mortality. Improved knowledge of long-term outcome is essential in order to improve future care and prevention of both fracture and its complications. LÄS MER

  3. 3. From Science to Policy : Improving environmental risk assessment andmanagement of chemicals

    Författare :Marlene Ågerstrand; Christina Rudén; Magnus Breitholtz; Misse Wester; Andreas Kortenkamp; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; environmental risk assessment; chemicals; pharmaceuticals; transparency; predictability; accuracy; consistency; voluntary initiatives; ecotoxicity data; reliability evaluation; relevance evaluation; non-standard test data; CSR; risk management.;

    Sammanfattning : A complex process like risk assessment and the subsequent risk management decision makingshould be regularly evaluated, in order to assess the need to improve its workings. In this thesisthree related matters are addressed: evaluation of environmental risk management strategies,evaluation of environmental risk assessments, and how ecotoxicity data from the open scientificliterature can be used in a systematic way in regulatory risk assessments.

    Sammanfattning : Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynecological malignancy. The etiology is complex and not fully understood, partly since ovarian cancer is not one distinct disease, but rather several histologically and clinically different subtypes. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Biomarkers and risk of intracerebral hemorrhage : population-based studies in northern Sweden

    Författare :Kristina Johansson; Marcus Lind; Lars Johansson; Jan-Håkan Jansson; Arne Lindgren; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : BackgroundIntracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a disease associated with a high morbidity and mortality and treatment options for the condition are limited. Even though an ICH event usually comes as a surprise to the affected individual, pathogenetic processes often have occurred before the sudden ICH event and may have preceded disease onset by years.
