(file photo)Dominica is looking to improve its survival rate during road accidents.Chairman of the Violence and Injury Surveillance System Committee Dr. Paul Ricketts says improvement in the availability of emergency staff at the Princess Margaret Hospital is among matters on a draft safety strategy to be sent to Cabinet for consideration. He was addressing the launch of local activities on the Decade of Action on Road Safety at the Arawak House of Culture on Friday last week.“The second broad objective is to improve the crash to theater time for seriously injured individuals requiring surgical intervention. Here we recognize that we need to make some adjustments to how we manage our patients so as to improve the survival rate, bearing in mind that the people who are dying are young and productive individuals,” he said.According to Dr. Ricketts, government will seek to improve the availability of emergency staff at the hospital to get patients to theatre at a much shorter time.“The next step is to finalize and present this draft safety strategy to Cabinet for its consideration and hopeful approval and continue to encourage all government departments, civil society and the private sector to conduct activities geared at improving road safety,” he said.Meantime, Dr. Ricketts says if the Cabinet approves the draft safety strategy, all vehicles entering the country must meet the minimum safety standards. Dominica has so far recorded six road fatalities for this year. Meantime, Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) Advisor on Violence and Injuries Dr. Tomo Kanda says PAHO will continue to provide technical support to national road safety initiatives.She says a multidisciplinary approach is essential to the success of road safety practices. Statistics indicate that road traffic accident is the leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 24.

Portland didn’t make a lot of changes in the offseason as the team remains anchored by the backcourt duo of Damian Lillard and McColllum. (AP Photo/Steve Yeater, File)cNEW YORK — The NBA has handed Portland guard CJ McCollum a one-game suspension for leaving the bench area during an altercation.McCollum took several steps onto the floor when Portland’s Caleb Swanigan and Phoenix’s Alex Len tussled in the fourth quarter of the teams’ preseason game Wednesday night. McCollum did not engage anyone, but leaving the bench area merited the penalty under NBA rules.ADVERTISEMENT He will have to miss the first game he is physically able to play, meaning he will likely sit Portland’s opener on Wednesday — coincidentally, back in Phoenix.McCollum has missed only four games in the past two seasons. He averaged a career-best 23 points per game on 48 percent shooting last season.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients  Makabayan bloc: Duterte suspension order on rice importation only a ‘media stunt’ PLAY LIST 02:46Makabayan bloc: Duterte suspension order on rice importation only a ‘media stunt’00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games View comments BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Read Next Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president MOST READ Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Cavaliers deal two, drop two as roster takes shape Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
