BACKGROUND: In order to address the challenges of an ageing population the Belgian government decided to allocate resources to the creation of geriatric day hospitals (GDHs). Although GDHs are meant to be a strategy to support general practitioners (GPs) caring for the frail elderly, few Belgian GPs seem to refer to a GDH. This study aims to explore the barriers and facilitating factors of GPs' referral to GDHs. METHODS: A qualitative study using focus group discussions (FGDs) was conducted. Fifteen FGDs were organized in the different Belgian regions (Flanders, Wallonia, Brussels). RESULTS: Contextual factors such as the unsatisfactory cooperation between hospital and GPs and organizational barriers such as the lack of communication on referral procedures between hospital and primary health care (PHC) were identified. Lack of basic knowledge about the concept or the local organization of GDH seemed to be a problem. Unclear task descriptions, responsibilities and activities of a GDH formed prominent points of discussion in all FGDs. Nevertheless a lot of possible advantages and disadvantages of GDHs for the patient and for the GP were mentioned. CONCLUSIONS: In the case of poor referral to GDHs, focusing on improving overall collaboration between primary and secondary health care is essential. This can be achieved by actively delivering adequate information, permanent communication and more involvement of PHC in the organization and functioning of GDHs. The absence of a transparent health care system with delineated role definitions, seems to hinder the integration of new initiatives like GDHs in the care process. Strategies to enhance referral to GDHs should use a comprehensive approach. [less ▲]

La cellule de recherche RIVES a établi, pour la Région wallonne (R.W.), une carte de sensibilité des berges aux dégradations physiques (glissement de berges, anse d’érosion, affouillement). Validée sur les cours d’eau non navigables, cette cartographie, basée sur le système « Bank Erosion Hazard Index » (BEHI), développée aux Etats Unis par Rosgen (1996) et adaptée aux données disponibles en R.W., permet d’évaluer le risque de dégradation physique des berges à partir des caractéristiques du milieu : la typologie des cours d’eau (PIRENE), les caractéristiques pédologiques extraites de la Carte Numérique des Sols de Wallonie et de la végétation (PPNC). Conjointement, un système d’information à référence spatiale de gestion plus générale des cours d’eau a été développé (GERIV) qui permet : - de gérer une base de données mère « localisation de la station » sur laquelle se greffe des bases de données filles « thématiques » (lit mineur, berge, etc.). Cette structure laisse la possibilité d’ajouter toute nouvelle base de données « thématique » à l’application. - de faciliter la gestion des visites annuelles des cours d’eau, par les gestionnaires, prévues dans le Code de l’Eau - de planifier et de gérer le suivi des travaux sur les cours d’eau. Couplée à la cartographie de sensibilité des berges aux dégradations, GERIV permet de déterminer les zones prioritaires d’intervention, de prévoir les travaux pertinents et de suivre leur évolution. GERIV a été utilisée pour l’étude de solutions dans la problématique de l’accès du bétail en amont des zones de baignade. [less ▲]

In this work, it has been attempted to improve the value of a non-commercial seed lot of an onion (Allium cepa L.) local variety from Galicia, Spain. Different seed conditioning treatments have been done: prehydration, osmotic and matrix priming, hormonal and disinfection treatments. A densimetric seed separation has been carried out to divide the seed lot in four sublots of different quality and to measure seed answers to hormonal treatments. Moreover, a tetrazolium seed test was carried out to determine the causes of the seed lot low germination rate. In the prehydration essay, seeds were immersed in a circulating water flow from 30 minutes to 24 h. Best results were obtained with the 4 h hydration. Prehydration influences micro-organisms contamination percentage of non-germinated seeds. Furthermore, prehydration was combined to a disinfection using sodium hypochlorite 4 % for 4 minutes. Disinfected seeds lost germination capacity. Hormonal treatment consisted in hydrating seeds on filter paper of different GA3 concentration solutions during germination test. GA3 improved germination uniformity but not germination percentage. Best results have been obtained with the 10 mg•L-1 GA3 concentracion. In seed separation, differences in germination rate and vigour have been observed in function of seeds medium weight. Seeds were separated in a vertical air flow that divided seeds in four fraction of growing density. A linear correlation between seed germination percentage and one hundred seeds medium weight was determined. It’s possible to separate seeds in different seed sublots of different quality. Osmotic conditioning were done with deionized water, KNO3 0,1 and 0,3 M and 150, 250 and 350 g•kg-1 PEG-6000 solutions for periods of 24, 48 and 96 h. In PEG-6000 seed osmoconditioning, a significant loss of germination was observed. Deionized water and KNO3 solutions improved seed quality, improving seed germination velocity and uniformity. It has been detected that seed germination uniformity only depends on the period of treatment but not on the solution concentration. Matrix seed priming gave best results with most deteriorated seeds, improving significantly their germination rate but had a few influence on seeds of better quality. Best treatment resulted the one using the proportion in volume seed: matrix: water of 1:10:2 of Algalita® during 6 days. In the viability test, a incomplete maturation of seeds was observed and 52,5 % of seeds were viable, with germination results of 45 % on date of viability test. Cotyledons of 38,5 % of seeds were inmature and 12,5 % of seeds didn’t have any embryo. Low maturation of seeds must have been the cause of the low lot quality. [less ▲]
