Duty of care is when we must follow the correct policies and procedures in order to protect and safeguard children from any harm. This means that we have a respnsibility to do daily health and safety checks on all equipment that children are likely to use encase any of it is broken, we must carry our risk assessments in order to make sure that all work areas and play areas are safe for children to use and also most importantly we must carry out fire drills so that children are familiar with the sound of the fire alarm, aware on where they have to go in order to reach safety and what they have to do.

Pharmocovigilance as define by the oxford dictionary is "the practice of monitoring the effects of medical drugs after they have been licensed for use especially in order to identify and evaluate previously unreported adverse reactions". In the EU all medicine is strictly analysed and tested for their quality , efficacy and safety before it is authorised for market. Even as these drugs are on the market they are continuously monitored to ensure any particulate which could affect the safety of the drug is identified and assessed and the necessary measures are taken .The Pharmocovigilance legislation was put into place to reduce the risks and increase the benefit of medicine and was "developed based on the observation that adverse drug reactions caused roughly 197,000 deaths in the EU".
Veterinary science is a unique and essential health profession. It contributes to human health, welfare and well-being of both animals and humans. It protects people from risks associated with animals and animal products. Serving the needs of both animals and people it is the widest ranging and widely encompassing of all the health profession.
What you think of when you hear the words Veterinary Medicine? Like needles, patients that are animals and doctors that are taking care of the animals best they can. In this research paper, I am going to talk about Veterinary Medicine. Like What Veterinary Medicine is and the history behind Veterinary Medicine and what jobs associate with Veterinary Medicine and zoonotic and Rabies diseases can do to animals and humans.
Captive environments result in exceeding amounts of stress for animals, resulting in the reason why they tend to become prone to such diseases. In the wild, majority of animal species live separately, away from other species of animals and even humans. However, in the zoo setting, animals interact everyday with humans and different types of animals. Also, nutritional changes lead to various infections and diseases. In many cases, diseases and infections that affect animals are from human interaction, especially when zookeepers assist animals, they exchange their microbiomes, which can cause bacterial infections in animals. Stephen St C. Bostock said “Primates, especially apes, can catch tuberculosis and measles from humans”. Many animals are prone to such interaction, because in the wild, animals never engage with humans. By bringing animals close to humans, people risk serious issues, can lead to an unknown disease that people have no method to cure for example: In 1959 first man ever detected with HIV virus recorded, HIV virus is most likely a result of human close interaction with the chimpanzees in the West Africa (The Aid Institution. 2015) shows how dangerous human animal interaction can be. As a result of such risks, certain type of prevention should be taken. “Continuous and indiscriminant feeding, spitting, coughing
Onchocerciasis is an infection caused by parasitic worm Onchocerca volvulus (Nematoda: filarial worm) spread by black fly. It is also called river blindness because the fly can cause blindness. The world health organization estimates that at least 25 million people are infected and 23 million people live in the areas that put them at risk of being infected. The most likely areas to be infected are Africa in Yemen and in the Middle East. Those most at risk are people who live in areas where the parasite is spread followed by adventure, travelers, missionaries and Peace Corps volunteers. The best prevention is avoiding being bitten by infected black flies by using insecticides. Unfortunately, there is no vaccine
Zoonoses are the infections that are transmitted to humans from a vertebrate host. Earlier, they include all the diseases that were shared by humans and animals as introduced by Rudolf Virchow in 1880. Later on, the word zoonoses represented only those diseases which were proven or had direct circumstantial evidence of being transmitted by an animal. Zoonoses are known to occur throughout the world and also to transcend across the boundaries. This affects the global economy and health. Changes such as urbanization, industrialization and deforestation have also known to have their effect in the change of the zoonotic diseases. Some diseases which were earlier to be considered to be limited to man have found their sources in animals.
In the past few years, the animal pharmacy has been seen as a rising industry in relation to human research and development on medicine. With the neverending process of making sure that the food market such as livestock and with the ongoing notion of treating domestic animals or pets as family members in the household, the animal pharmaceutical industry requires continuous betterment and innovations that will help assess future problems relating to the market and health. Also, as more laws are created in order to address welfare, the more are we inclined to treat these animals the same way we treat other human beings, becoming the reason for us to strive in making this kind of industry a large scale one. However, certain problems that affect
Although in some states, the department of health may play an important role (e.g., MO, OK) or even serve as the primary regulatory agency (e.g., CO). Where both agencies are involved, the department of health is accountable for on-site management and the environmental agency is responsible for transportation and disposal (e.g., LA, MO).
