Prevention Agreement

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mark Baker @ 3:20 am

Early results of patient and family engagement in the pilot unit prompted other medical oncology units to increase their conclusion agreements. Members of the pilot unit team presented the project and results to the case prevention committee. The results led to a change in the standard of practice, inviting all patients and families to sign the fall prevention agreement and then be posted on the whiteboard. The nuclear war prevention agreement[1] was created to reduce the risk of nuclear war between the United States and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The agreement was signed at the Washington Summit on June 22, 1973. The United States and the U.S.S.R. agreed to reduce the threat of nuclear war and end a policy of fighting hostility. Evaluation/results Case and case rates were compared two quarters prior to the implementation of the fall agreement and eight-quarters after implementation. Falls and falls on the medical oncology unit recorded an overall decrease of 37% and 58.6%. The United States and the Soviet Union agree on the principle that an agreement must be reached to limit the fear and threat of nuclear war.

The three priorities of the agreement have ambitious goals to improve the health of the population by 2040: with the agreement of fundamental principles and strategic speeches on arm limits (SALT), it was an attempt to establish “rules” for the superpower during the Cold War. The bilateral agreement, which has multilateral implications, describes the general behaviour of both countries and towards third world countries. The contracting parties agreed that, in a situation that threatened to escalate into a direct nuclear confrontation, either directly or through the taking of substitutes in the Third World, urgent consultation should be made. The agreement also provides that such consultations can be communicated to the United Nations and other countries, a clause that the United States naturally applies to its allies. Article VI provides that nothing in the agreement affects the formal commitments of the alliance or the inherent right of countries to defend themselves. The agreement was delivered by U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger during his visit to Moscow in 1972. Kissinger called the initial project a “dangerous, Soviet maneuver that pushes us to give up the use of nuclear weapons, on which the defence of the free world depended… Faced with Soviet superiority over conventional weapons, such an approach would demoralize our allies and deeply worry China, which would see this as a sign of the much-feared collusion between the United States and the Soviet Union…
