Introduction: Several tools are available for the assessment of muscle mass, muscle strength and physical performance in clinical research. However, few data are available on the usage of these tools in clinical practice. Methods: This study aimed to assess their usage by means of a large online international survey. Since sarcopenia is a specific condition where the assessment of muscle mass, muscle strength and physical performance is important, the survey also assessed the tools used for the diagnosis of this geriatric syndrome. Results: The survey was completed by 255 clinicians from 55 countries across 5 continents. Among these clinicians with geriatrics, rheumatology and endocrinology as major fields of interest, 53.3% assess muscle mass in daily practice, 54.5% muscle strength and 71.4% physical performance. However, the tools used are very different and no single tool is used by all clinicians. The tools and the cut-off values used by clinicians to diagnose sarcopenia are also heterogeneous. Conclusion: Because some tools used for the assessment of muscle mass, muscle strength or physical performance in daily practice are less validated than others, a greater awareness from the clinicians of the importance of using appropriate tools is needed [less ▲]

Public diplomacy is a diplomatic and international communication activity aimed at foreign publics and seeking to create a positive image and/or political influence, contributing to the achievement of foreign policy goals. On June 9th, 2015, public diplomacy scholars and practitioners coming from Europe and Latin America gathered in a research seminar organised by the Centre for International Relations Studies (CEFIR), at the University of Liège. They contributed their works on public diplomacy from the perspectives of its cultural, communicative and image components. The result of that seminar is this book, which reflects the current diversity of theoretical aspects and practices of public diplomacy. Taking the European Union, some Latin American countries (Venezuela and Mexico) and even civil society organisations as the actors whose public diplomacy actions are studied, this book provides both reflections and empirical analysis of public diplomacy strategies developed from different angles.

De nombreuses activités professionnelles sont régies par des accès réglementés à la profession . La clé de ces accès est généralement un diplôme ou une évaluation officielle, certifiant que le titulaire a satisfait à un certain niveau de connaissance et/ou d’aptitude (exemples : réviseurs d’entreprises, agents immobiliers, architectes, assureurs, …). Lorsque le métier est essentiellement de nature intellectuelle et que les prestations nécessitent une certaine éthique, sur le plan moral et/ou commercial, un système d’ordre professionnel apparaît généralement, assuré parfois directement par les pouvoirs publics, mais plus généralement par les professionnels eux-mêmes selon des règles de représentation et de fonctionnement fixées par le législateur ou l’administration compétente et avec une supervision publique . Ces mécanismes sont nécessaires pour que le client ait confiance dans les professionnels auxquels il fait appel. Ils ont fait leur preuve pour des métiers dont le rythme d’évolution est de plus d’une génération et caractérisés par des règles de l’art qui font l’objet d’un large consensus ou des procédures fixes clairement établies. Tel le notariat. Par contre, comment créer cette confiance dans des métiers nécessitant des compétences pluridisciplinaires, et qui évoluent à un rythme très rapide, sans que l’on puisse se baser, comme repère, sur les « sages » de la génération précédente qui « savent » ? C’est par exemple le cas du secteur des TIC (Technologies de l’Information et de la Communication). [less ▲]

Numerous technogical applications dedicated to patients affected by the Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have recently emerged. Research has begun to prove the efficiency of technologies as support tools for therapy for ASD sufferers. However, as far as we know, none study was focused on Speech-Language Therapist’s (SLT) needs. In order to fill this gap, three nominal groups were realized with 19 SLT working with patients with TSA. Identified needs have been ranked in importance. Results stress the importance of open-systems with fully customizable applications allowing the elaboration of individual progress based on specific therapeutic outcomes. [less ▲]

This article examines how science, technology, and innovation (STI) policies in Flanders (Belgium) are affected by, and potentially transformed through, technology assessments (TAs). Broadly defined, TAs encompass activities and programs that expand and deepen the knowledge base of contemporary knowledge-based economies (KBEs), typically by including new actors (e.g. trade unions), ideas (e.g. science in society), and rationales (e.g. participatory techniques) in STI processes. Starting from the regionalization of STI policy in Belgium and the convergence of Flemish STI around global KBE principles, the article exemplifies how since the 1980s successive Flemish TA waves (early- warning, bottom-up, and interactive TA) have co-evolved with successive generations of Flemish innovation policy. Building on these findings, it argues that Flemish TA has assumed the role of mediator between science and society, both by counteracting and accommodating dominant STI paradigms. By providing a historical and socio-political perspective on TA and innovation policy, the article draws critical attention to the institutional settings and societal contexts in which TA is embedded, and questions TA's strategic utility within contemporary KBEs. This perspective sheds light on the Flemish government's recent decision to close its parliamentary TA institute and the institutional expansion of TA elsewhere in Europe. [less ▲]

Many scientists, athletes, sports bodies, and governments applaud the increasing integration of science and technology into sports. However, the scientization of sports raises ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI), e.g. about the changing relationship between medical support and human enhancement, and the implications of scientific talent screening in sports for sports participation. A public debate is needed that identifies the ELSI in sports innovation and urges technology innovators, regulators, and decision makers to take into account such issues before sports innovations are irrevocably locked into sports and society.

Le rôle central des responsables des services d’éducation et d’accueil des jeunes enfants (EAJE) pour le développement d’une qualité de services est souligné dans de nombreux rapports internationaux. Citons notamment les travaux de l’OCDE . Pourtant, selon les contextes, les contours de ce rôle ne sont pas toujours clairement établis ; ils peuvent être source de confusion et d’ambiguïté. La difficulté de gérer les services en conciliant des fonctions sociales, éducatives et économiques est clairement posée. La difficulté également de gérer une équipe dont les membres ont des statuts parfois précaires, des niveaux de formation disparates dans un cadre budgétaire restreint. Dans ce contexte comment relever le défi d’élaborer et de développer une dynamique de projet éducatif concerté dans tous les services qu’ils soient en collectivité ou à domicile, en milieu urbain ou rural ? Ce problème est clairement posé en Belgique francophone où aucune formation spécifique à l’enfance de niveau supérieur n’est organisée, où aucune expérience utile aux fonctions de direction n’est exigée à ce jour. Une recherche en voie de finalisation (juin 2015) visant à mieux définir les compétences nécessaires aux fonctions d’accueil et d’encadrement des services à l’enfance a permis d’associer une série d’acteurs de l’enfance, de l’enseignement, de la formation et de responsables politico-administratifs. Dans une démarche de recherche-action, il s’est agi de se décentrer des réalités de la Belgique francophone pour comprendre comment les questions se posent aussi dans d’autres contextes européens (France, Flandre, Angleterre, Suède) et ensuite, de prendre des décisions relatives à la redéfinition des référentiels métiers et de formation, à la révision des textes réglementaires pour les services. Tout en évitant de donner des directives universelles qui nieraient les spécificités de contexte, l'étude propose de relever une série de questions clés relatives aux fonctions de direction, de points de vigilances à relever ainsi que des idées retenues comme essentielles pour l’avenir.

The goal of all clinical guidelines is to assist patients and practitioners in making healthcare decisions. However, clinical guidelines have been questioned about their quality, transparency and independence. Based on the revision of manuals by other scientific cardiothoracic organizations, this document provides instructions for the development of European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS) clinical guidelines and other types of evidence-based documents. Four key areas have been addressed: (i) selection of taskforce members and transparency of relations with the industry, (ii) methods for critical appraisal of medical evidence, (iii) rules for writing recommendations and (iv) review process. It is hoped that, by adopting this methodology, clinical guidelines produced by the EACTS will be well balanced, objective and, importantly, trusted by physicians and patients who benefit from their implementation.

The bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) is an abundant top predator found in nearshore waters of South Florida including heavily developed and remote coastal waters. The objective of this study was to quantify total mercury (T-Hg) and persistent organic pollutant (POPs: NDL-PCBs, PBDEs, DDT, HCH, HCB, PCDD/Fs and DL-PCBs) levels in bottlenose dolphins found off the highly populated island of Key West (n = 27) and from the undeveloped Florida Coastal Everglades (FCE; n = 20). T-Hg and POPs were analyzed in skin and blubber tissues, respectively, using a Direct Mercury analyzer (for T-Hg), GC-ECD (POPs) and GC-HRMS (DLCs). The 7 ICES PCBs were the main compounds found in bottlenose dolphins from Key West (8229 ng.g-1 lipids) and the FCE (2289 ng.g-1 lipids), while the concentrations of PCDD/Fs remained low (Key West: 104 pg.g-1 lipids, FCE: 102 pg.g-1 lipids). POP concentrations were higher in individuals from Key West compared to those from the FCE. However, POP concentrations in Key West dolphins were lower than those from other locations in Florida and around the world. Unlike organic pollutants, T-Hg concentrations were significantly higher in FCE dolphins (Key West: 2941 ng.g-1 dw versus, FCE: 9314 ng.g-1 dw), with the highest concentrations reported from the southeastern US. PCB concentrations remained under previously suggested threshold for adverse health effects (including immunosuppression) in marine mammals of 17 000 ng/kg lipid. To conclude, sources of T-Hg and POPs differed between Key West and the FCE as reflected by their concentrations in skin and blubber of free-ranging bottlenose dolphins highlighting their role as sentinels of their environment.

Le raisonnement analogique est une habileté humaine qui permet de dresser une correspondance entre deux situations à partir d’une structure relationnelle commune. Il est étroitement lié au langage puisque ces deux habiletés s’influencent mutuellement. Ce lien a poussé plusieurs auteurs à s’intéresser aux capacités de raisonnement analogique d’enfants présentant des troubles du langage. Bien que ces enfants aient un niveau intellectuel dans la norme, différentes études montrent qu’ils auraient des difficultés par rapport à leurs pairs de même âge à réaliser des tâches analogiques variées, qu’elles soient verbales ou non. Ces difficultés semblent néanmoins s’estomper lorsque certaines compétences, comme le langage, sont contrôlées. De plus, les enfants dysphasiques semblent davantage dépendants à la similarité perceptuelle présente entre les stimuli, ce qui représente d’importantes implications pour l’acquisition du langage.
