Risk Management in the various areas of Healthcare is an increasingly interesting topic, both from a technical-professional aspect and an organizational one. It is the subject of careful considerations that have a strong and constant social impact. The knowledge, awareness and study of the risk issue are essential elements of healthcare assistance and should be considered in the general context of Quality. In particular, a system of Risk Management is an integral part of an effective quality enterprise system, whatever the principles it is inspired to. An essential objective for healthcare organizations is to meet the needs of population providing proper performance of quality with affordable prices and, above all, safe services. Nowadays, the healthcare services are characterized by a high level of risk, made evident by a continuous interaction of multiple peculiar heterogeneous and dynamic factors that make an healthcare organization a complex system. In this work we will firstly introduce Risk Management in Healthcare, its birth, development and evolution over time. Afterwards, we will focus in the particular field of Risk Management in Dental Implantology.
Health Professionals world over are expected to operate in a sterile environment in order to minimize clinical risks but this practice is not observed by many health workers in Uganda. Kibuli Police Dental Clinic is not exceptional.This study investigated the relationship between risk management and patients’ vulnerability to clinical risks in Uganda, a case study of Kibuli Police Dental Clinic, in the Kampala district. Risk management was the independent variable while patients’ vulnerability to clinical risks was the dependent variable in the study. The study objectives were to: .examine the relationship between risk identification and patients’ vulnerability to clinical risks, establish the relationship between risk analysis and patients’ vulnerability to clinical risks, identify the relationship between risk response planning and patients’ vulnerability to clinical risk and to explore how risk monitoring and control affect patients’ vulnerability to clinical risks in Kibuli Police Dental Clinic. The study employed across sectional survey design using both qualitative and quantitative approaches.
In view of growing complexity of banks’ business and the dynamic operating environment, risk management has become very significant, especially in the financial sector. Risk at the apex level may be visualized as the probability of a banks’ financial health being impaired due to one or more contingent factors. While the parameters indicating the banks’ health may vary from net interest margin to market value of equity, the factor which can cause the important are also numerous. For management of risk at corporate level, various risks like credit risk, market risk or operational risk have to be converted into one composite measure. Therefore, it is necessary that measurement of operational risk should be in tandem with other measurements of credit and market risk so that the requisite composite estimate can be worked out. So, regarding to international banking rule (Basel Committee Accords) and RBI guidelines the investigation of risk analysis and risk management in Co-Op banks is being most important.

The researcher recommend, it is advisable for the union to have a department for risk mgt system, follow risk identification process to undertake it on a regular basis, Better to employ qualitative analysis, The management and control committee have to give emphasis for risk mgt and practical implementation of risk management.
Book DescriptionIn this volume the methodological aspects of the scenario logic and probabilistic (LP) non-success risk management are considered. The theoretical bases of scenario non-success risk LP-management in business and engineering are also stated. Methods and algorithms for the scenario risk LP-management in problems of classification, investment and effectiveness are described. Risk LP- models and results of numerical investigations for credit risks, risk of frauds, security portfolio risk, risk of quality, accuracy, and risk in multi-stage systems reliability are given. In addition, a rather large number of new problems of estimation, analysis and management of risk are considered. Software for risk problems based on LP-methods, LP-theory, andGIE is described too.
This book examines the links between policy, zoonoses, and risk in Zambia and assessed the feasibility of a World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) risk analysis in informing risk management in this context. The analysis demonstrates how external international agendas had considerable influence on pandemic preparedness policy in Zambia, prioritizing the involvement of health and agricultural actors in the policy process and excluded those from trade and other sectors. In using the OIE risk analysis approach, this book suggests weighing both local policy and ecological configurations in assessment of risk and the design of zoonotic disease mitigation policies. While feasible, the merits of an OIE risk analysis in informing policy development in this context would be enhanced by a careful consideration and inclusion of policy processes. An objective and discursive approach to analysis of risk, appropriately communicated to stakeholders, would improve collaboration in disease management across sectors.
The recent turmoil on financial markets has made evident the importance of efficient liquidity risk management for the stability of banks. The measurement and management of liquidity risk must take into account economic factors such as the impact area, the timeframe of the analysis, the origin and the economic scenario in which the risk becomes manifest. Basel III, among other things, has introduced harmonized international minimum requirements and has developed global liquidity standards and supervisory monitoring procedures. The short book analyses the economic impact of the new regulation on profitability, on assets composition and business mix, on liabilities structure and replacement effects on banking and financial products.a??
This work has the goal to provide a risk management procedure in order to improve fire protection of Valuable Contents in Historical Heritage Buildings. The core of the procedure is structured in two parts: Risk Assessment and Risk Treatment. In Risk Assessment phase, by means of a risk analysis and evaluation method, we want to point out which are the weak points in contents’ protection due both to building features and to management strategies. In Risk Treatment phase is proposed a method to choose the best set of mitigation measures to reduce risk for Valuable Contents. The procedure suggests to the user sets of coherent actions to reduce specific risks by means of managerial strategies and interventions on the building. The procedure could be useful for insurance risk managers, fire engineers and managers of historical buildings that have responsibility for the Valuable Contents.

This research examines the way employees perceive risk in a non-governmental healthcare organisation that provides care and support for people with mental, intellectual and physical disabilities. The research demonstrates that the perceptual aspect of risk emphasises the central role of people in any risk management process. For effective risk management, all perspectives should be considered. This requires a participatory system of managing risk, improving the awareness of people about risk, and modifying the culture of risk among them.
