"Is the Irish Pharmaceutical Industry Prepared for the Future of Water Use in Ireland?" by Deirdre Cournane

In this study the Irish pharmaceutical industry was assessed as being in a state of preparedness for implementation of water sustainability strategies.
Water use by industrial sites is at a transitionary phase. Global climate change, new legislative requirements, and the continuing pressures of faster production are all impacting water use. Sustainable use of water is a holistic stakeholder-inclusive process, which is balanced from a social and cultural viewpoint. It benefits both the environment and economy. The main study objective was to evaluate the preparedness of the Irish pharmaceutical industry in adoption of water sustainability practices and to identify the critical success factors which may be recommended for the industry.

"The Disability-Adjusted Life Year (DALY) and Influenza in Ireland An evaluation of the suitability of the DALY as a metric for measuring and managing the burden of influenza in Ireland" by Roisin Quigley

The burden of influenza in Ireland in insufficiently characterised. Quantifying the burden of influenza could lead to benefits such as informed decision-making on policy, effective healthcare planning and preparation and prioritisation of health research investments and healthcare interventions. These benefits are particularly pertinent in today’s Irish setting, as it is facing chronic resource shortages. The Disability Adjusted Life Year (DALY) is proposed as a useful metric for quantifying the burden of influenza. It is a measure of overall reduction in health due to disability before death and the decline in life expectancy due to death. This research aimed to use this metric to estimate the burden of influenza in Ireland and to investigate the feasibility, suitability, utility and validity of the estimate in practice in the Irish healthcare and health policy setting.
