Despite group B streptococcal (GBS) screening in late pregnancy and intrapartum antimicrobial prophylaxis, early onset sepsis in neonates remains a common source of neonatal morbidity and mortality especially in preterm neonates. The identification of neonates with early onset sepsis is usually based on perinatal risk factors. Clinical signs are aspecific and laboratory tests not sensitive. Therefore, many clinicians will overtreat at risk infants. Inappropriate treatment with antibiotics increases the risk for late onset sepsis, necrotizing enterocolitis, mortality and prolongs hospitalisation and costs. In 2003, the Belgian Health Council (BHC), published guidelines for the prevention of perinatal GBS infections. This report presents the Belgian paediatric management guidelines, which have been endorsed by the Belgian and Flemish societies of neonatology and paediatrics. The most imported changes in the 2014 guidelines are the following: · recommendations for a lumbar puncture, · clarification of normal spinal fluid parameters and blood neutrophil indices corrected for gestation age, · specific timing for diagnostic testing after birth, · no indication for diagnostic testing in asymptomatic newborns unless additional risk factors, · a revised algorithm for management of neonates according to maternal and neonatal risk factors, · premature infants described as those below 35 weeks instead of 37 weeks The guidelines were made on the basis of the best evidence and on expert opinion when inadequate evidence exists.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The present review focuses on similarities and discrepancies in the management of emergent and elective unstable cervical spine (C-spine) patients. RECENT FINDINGS: During mobilization, lifting is superior to rolling in limiting spine movements. Before prone position surgery, the transfer of the patient on a rotating table is preferable to rolling. In trauma patients, helical computed tomography (CT) with sagittal reconstruction is the first choice for clearing the C-spine. In those patients, airway compromise may be related to hidden cervical edema or hematoma. Several devices can be of help in performing safe tracheal intubation in patients with limited neck movements, but awake fiberoptic intubation remains the safest procedure. The muscle relaxant antagonist sugammadex can improve safety for rapid sequence induction. It can rapidly reverse profound steroid-based neuromuscular blockade and allows avoidance of succinylcholine in this indication. Propofol anesthesia better prevents coughing upon emergence than inhaled anesthesia. Neuroprotection in cord-damaged patients is disappointing, and the controversy on the efficacy of high-dose methylprednisolone is not closed. Nevertheless, maintenance of homeostasis remains the cornerstone of neuroprotection. SUMMARY: Subtle details differentiate the management of emergent and elective unstable C-spine patients. In both situations, the presence or the absence of a neurological insult governs the therapeutic strategy. [less ▲]

This article aims to examine changing practices of school mediation in three “worlds” of actors – the educational world, the manager world and the “living together” world – crossing three fields of research in sociology: the interactionism, the sociology of public management, and the sociology of school. Traditionally performed by the institutional mediator of the school or, occasionally, by a local mediator, the variety of contemporary mediation practices appears as a consequence of the organizational challenges of New Public Management of Belgium. I will first explain the background of the changes which occurred in the educational field and examine the changing role of school stakeholders. Then, I will present three case studies which illustrate how schools are anchored in the three “worlds” of actors mentioned above. Finally, I will discuss the results giving the first lines of interpretation of this school evolution. [less ▲]

A number of recent authors have emphasised the increasing disconnection from conservation issues among urban dwellers. In a global increase of urbanisation, this disconnect can have an impact on conservation practices. Here, we discuss how managers of public green spaces can contribute to global biodiversity preservation, through combined efforts to preserve local biodiversity and educate the public about conservation issues. We compared several management strategies, including those that mixed direct action on local biodiversity with public education and those that did not. Two kinds of one-way communication were considered as well as a two-way communication process, which take into account different perceptions and practices of nature. We based our model on the introduction of the red-eared slider turtle, Trachemys scripta elegans, into urban French freshwater ecosystems. We found that direct actions only had a limited, short term effect on the abundance of feral turtles in green spaces and had no effect on the level of public concern about environmental questions. We also showed that a mix of different communication strategies improved people’s awareness and altered behaviour with respect to introduced species issues. Finally, we showed the importance of a two-way communication that takes into account the diversity of personal perceptions and practices as regards nature in urban areas in order to achieve sustainable conservation measures and objectives [less ▲]

A travers cette contribution, nous développerons une analyse critique des transformations actuelles du recours aux théories et méthodes du management public dans la gestion des politiques, à partir d’une étude des développements récents de l’administration locale en Belgique (Wayenberg et al. 2015). Les autorités locales, politiques et administratives, se voient confrontées à une multiplication des injonctions à une approche stratégique de la gestion publique et aux démarches évaluatives en matière d’analyse politique. Ces outils de rationalisation sont couplés à une extension de la contractualisation de l’administration au niveau des cadres supérieurs. Ces démarches gestionnaires et stratégiques sont diffusées à travers les injonctions réglementaires, les programmes de financement des autorités régionales ainsi que les bureaux de consultants. Elles sont aussi couplées à une extension des processus participatifs, les citoyens étant plus souvent intégrés dans le développement et le pilotage de l’action publique, voire son évaluation. Il s’agit de mettre en évidence les effets réciproques des processus de rationalisation de l’action publique et de sa démocratisation. [less ▲]

In a situation of crisis or deep organizational disruption, organizational identity often appears as a critical dimension (Albert et Whetten, 1985 ; Alvesson et Empson, 2008 ; Dutton et al, 1994). It cannot be considered as monolithic: each stage of the evolution of the organization is marked by several interactions (different identity logics predominate each other at times). Even if within an organizational identity, a particular identity logic seems to prevail, other identity logics are nevertheless present, or appear in informal mode. Organizational identity is thus conceived as hybrid : on the one hand, the dominant identity logic, on the other hand, alternative identity logics consisting in different perceptions of the organization’s central, enduring and distinctive features, its values and running principles. <br />Because of their formal authority and their access to resources, managers play an important role in organizational identification processes. They can first create meaning around a deliberate change (sensegiving). Such an approach emphasizes the role of organizational leaders (carriers of the dominant identity logic) in a cognitive process where they aim at providing to the members of the organization a coherent narrative in order to build a legitimate collective sense of self. As for the sensemaking-oriented approach (Weick, 1995), it adopts a different perspective: the shared understandings of the members about what the organization is, result of cognitive processes carried out by members of the organization when they are questioning the central, enduring and distinctive features of their organization. <br />We draw from the second perspective. Through a case study conducted in 2010 within a large company facing critical change, we propose to empirically illustrate the meaning given by members of the organization to different constitutive dimensions of organizational identity. We focus especially on team managers, at the crossroads of all tensions in terms of identity and meaning at work. <br />This case study illustrates in particular the disorientation of team managers, torn between a dominant organizational identity exploded from the top of the organization, and a radically changing organizational context, which they are struggling to make sense and to give sense for their team. It results in identity profiles marked by hybridity and transition. <br />When such a situation is noticed, what managerial actions can be undertaken? Our aim in this article is to highlight the value of a polyphonic approach of change management (Pichault, 2009), and offer some thoughts on the development of a sensemaking articulated to the diversity of identities within the organization as well as the integration of this identity diversity concerns in the management practices.
