New initiative unveiled by Mission Hills China to promote sustainable eco-tourism

SHENZHEN, China, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Some 2,000 employees of luxury golf and spa resort Mission Hills came together today to form the largest Human QR Code in an effort to promote eco-tourism to the world and to make sustainable tourism a global reality.

The world’s largest QR Code
The gigantic real life QR Code was created by staff carrying umbrellas and gathering at the Mission Hills driving range in Shenzhen, China. The aerial photo, taken from a height of 270 feet, is readable by a QR scanner and takes smartphone users to a campaign website promoting sustainable eco-tourism.

The first Mission Hills Resort was developed on a piece of barren land that was considered too acidic for plantation. For 20 years, Mission Hills has strived for ecological equilibrium by preserving the natural landscape in all its developments. The scale of the Mission Hills development has been such that it was accredited the World’s Largest Golf Club and Spa Resort by Guinness World Records TM.

Mission Hills has invested some US$50 million on the implementation of an environmental sustainability program that encompasses everything from air quality monitoring to energy, water, waste, and carbon emissions management in a concerted effort to prove that modern day golf course management can go hand in hand with eco-tourism development and environmental protection and sustainability.

Speaking about the initiative, Dr. Ken Chu, Chairman and CEO of Mission Hills Group said, “We are committed to building a sustainable and environmentally responsible leisure and tourism business that makes a positive economic, cultural and environmental impact on the local community and region. It is encouraging to see how businesses, destinations, and organizations from around the globe are setting new standards and achievements in sustainable tourism.”

“At Mission Hills, we are working interminably to improve our sustainability, ecological and environmental records and contributions. We have a good story to tell and want to do so in a way that is both entertaining and engaging for the world to see.” continued Chu.

In an effort to promote sustainable eco-tourism and in celebration of Mission Hills’ 20th anniversary, the Group is giving away twenty 3 day / 2 night Romantic Premier Spa Suite Getaway packages at Mission Hills Haikou Resort on the tropical island of Hainan. When users scan the QR Code, they will be directed to a campaign website to answer three simple questions related to sustainable eco-tourism. Those who complete the questions with the correct answers will be entered into the draw for a chance to win one of the Mission Hills Micro Holiday packages valued at US$2,600.

Consumers Launch Landmark Legal Case Against Google Snooping

leave a comment »

LONDON/PRNewswire/ — A group of internet users has launched a landmark privacy case against Google for undermining the security settings on Apple’s Safari browser to track online usage covertly.
In the first case of its kind in the UK, a number of people with concerns about Google’s behaviour have decided to take action and are forming a campaigning group called Safari Users Against Google’s Secret Tracking.
They have instructed the law firm, Olswang, to coordinate the claims and are marking Data Privacy Day tomorrow (Jan 28) by launching a Facebook page to provide information to the many other people who might also have been affected. The Facebook page can be found at http://www.facebook.com/SafariUsersAgainstGooglesSecretTracking
The claims centre around tracking cookies, which had been secretly installed by Google on the computers and mobile devices of people using Apple’s Safari internet browser.
The first claimant to issue proceedings, 74-year-old Judith Vidal-Hall, said: “Google claims it does not collect personal data but doesn’t say who decides what information is ‘personal’. Whether something is private or not should be up to the internet surfer, not Google. We are best placed to decide, not them.”
Through its DoubleClick adverts, Google designed a code to circumvent privacy settings in order to deposit the cookies on computers in order to provide user-targeted advertising. The claimants thought that cookies were being blocked on their devices because of Safari’s strict default privacy settings and separate assurances being given by Google at the time. This was not the case.
The practice was only stopped when an academic researcher noticed Google’s activity and published an expose in the United States. Google was subsequently found to be in violation of an existing order from the US Federal Trade Commission and was fined a record $22.5million.
Olswang say that this action breached their clients’ confidence and privacy and are now seeking damages, disclosure and an apology from the company.
Dan Tench, a Partner at Olswang, said: “Google has a responsibility to consumers and should be accountable for the trust placed in them. We hope that they will take this opportunity to give Safari users a proper explanation about what happened, to apologise and, where appropriate, compensate the victims of their intrusion.”
For information on joining the claim, email daniel.tench@olswang.com

Zhaopin.com Announces “China Annual Best Employer (2012)” Winners

leave a comment »

BEIJING, Jan. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The grand award ceremony of “China Annual Best Employer (2012),” the “Oscar Award” of China’s human resource management community, was held in Beijing on January 23. The highly anticipated “Top 30 Employers of the Year” list and winners of the individual awards were announced at the premier event of China’s HR community.

Zhaopin.com Announced the Results of the “Best Employers in China for 2012” on Jan. 23
Zhaopin.com, one of the leading human resource solutions providers in China, and Peking University’s Corporate Social Responsibility and Employer Brand Communication Research Center, jointly conducted the survey and selection process, which sought to recognize China’s outstanding employers in every aspect of what it means to be a good employer and to promote the notion of an employer brand.

The survey was conducted in 28 cities across the country over four months. More than 1,500 employers were selected during the first stage of the process. All selected firms were screened, which included a questionnaire, information research, face-to-face interview with employees, as well as a review by experts in the human resources field before the final award recipients were finally chosen. An external public survey and an in-depth internal employee investigation were combined to ensure the most accurate research results.

Following the series of selections and reviews, 30 outstanding firms across various industries and sectors, including Shanghai Volkswagen, Tencent, BMW China, China Merchants Bank, Pfizer China, DALIAN WANDA GROUP, GE, China Southern Airlines, Bosch China, SAP China, FAW, China Minmetals Corporation, Baidu, XCMG, Shell(China) Limited, DHL-Sinotrans, Oracle, China Telecom, Nokia, CGB, ZOOMLION, ifeng.com, Starbucks China, CBN, eLong.com, SHAANGU GROUP, SUNING APPLIANCE CO., LTD., Hilton Worldwide and CHINA EASTERN, were honored as the “Top 30 Employers of the Year.”Meanwhile, four individual awards — “Top 10 Employers Gaining Most Attention from Undergraduates,” “Top 10 Employers Gaining Most Attention from Women,” “Top 10 Employers Gaining Most Attention from Jobholders” and “Top 10 Employers Most Responsible for Society” — were also announced.

The “China Best Employer” survey constitutes a comprehensive indexing system comprising 6 primary indices and 18 secondary indices, all of which serve to describe the characteristics best employers are expected to possess. The survey data revealed significant changes in what job seekers and holders considered their priorities during 2012, with one of the most obvious trends being that job seekers are focusing more on stability. Among the 18 secondary indices, “Best Benefits Package” topped the list, overtaking “Competitive Salary,” followed by “Enterprises Having Excellent Growth Prospects,” “Harmonious Internal Interpersonal Relationships,” “Just and Fair Employing Principles” and “Opportunity to Improve Core Individual Abilities.” These trends evidenced job seekers’ heightened focus on stability rather than competitiveness. Compared to 2011, the new-generation job seekers — those born in the 1990s — are more willing to work in a state-owned enterprise, with 40-percent of them expressing such a desire.

More companies are focusing on talent recruitment and retention strategies, as well as on implementing a sustainable management policy, as they gain a better understanding of employer branding, according to specialists in the jury of the China Best Employer Award. At the same time, the connotation of “employer brand” is on its way to becoming a household word in the Chinese language and a generally accepted concept across China as time advances.

PsorCARE Program by LEO Pharma Asia Focuses on Treatment Adherence to Improve Psoriasis Treatment Outcomes

leave a comment »

SINGAPORE/PRNewswire/ —
Psoriasis is a little-understood skin condition that carries a strong social stigma through its emotional impact on sufferers that can far outweigh the disease’s physical impact. That is why proper support and guidance from healthcare providers is crucial in achieving optimal treatment adherence, one of the main challenges in psoriasis management.
(Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20110606/460992 )
LEO Pharma, the global leader in dermatology care, announced the launch of the PsorCARE program in Asia, starting with Singapore, on 26 January 2013. The first-of-its-kind initiative in the region, PsorCARE, which stands for “Psoriasis Coach All-Round Education”, will kick off on 26 January, 2013. Developed by LEO Pharma Asia and PsorAsia, PsorCARE’s goal is to enhance the counseling skills of healthcare practitioners for optimal patient-healthcare provider relationship leading to better treatment outcomes for those who suffer from the skin condition Psoriasis.
“LEO Pharma is committed to bringing this program to Asia because we are aware of the challenges that patients with Psoriasis face in their everyday lives. We want patients with Psoriasis to know that trained support is available and that it is possible for them to live life as normally as possible. Our ultimate aim is to give these patients hope and help improve the quality of their lives,” said Mr. Ng Choon-Peng, Chief Executive Officer of LEO Pharma Asia Pte Ltd.
Psoriasis – the disease
Psoriasis is a chronic non-contagious inflammatory skin condition that affects approximately 40,000 Singaporeans[1], and up to three in every hundred people globally[2]. It is also one of the top ten most common skin diseases in Singapore[3], but is little understood amongst the general public, earning it a social stigma for its highly visible effects on human skin, such as thick, silvery scales and pink raised skin. Hence, Psoriasis also exerts a psychological toll on patients, with a 44 percent increased risk of suicide, a 39 percent increased risk of depression, and a 31 percent increased risk of anxiety. Patients with severe psoriasis have a 72 percent increased risk of depression[4].
The need for the PsorCARE program
Many patients require a deeper and better understanding of the disease and the treatment options, which can be achieved with improved access to information through healthcare professionals. With professional counseling readily available, patients have the necessary support to better able to manage both the physical and psychological toll from living with Psoriasis.
For patients who require long-term therapy for Psoriasis, treatment adherence – whether it be medicinal, behavioral, lifestyle or a combination of treatments – is essential for achieving optimal outcomes. Extensive market research has identified that adherence is founded on good communication and a positive relationship between the patient and healthcare practitioners. This applies in particular to nurses who are in regular contact with patients[5].
Treatment adherence has been shown to be poor for many Psoriasis patients[6]. It is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as “the extent to which a person’s behavior – taking medication, following a diet, and/or executing lifestyle changes, corresponds with agreed recommendations from a health care provider”. Psoriasis patients find it challenging to adhere to their treatment modality because the application of their medicine requires discipline and patience, and this impacts their lifestyle. More significantly, the lack of apparent results dampens their morale which in turn affects negatively, the follow-through with recommended treatment.
“The nurse’s role is extremely important, not just in terms of administering care. Nurses are in a unique position to provide support and strength through empathy and personalized care. Most importantly, they are able to manage patients’ expectations of the treatment and encourage them to adhere to it, because typical Psoriasis treatment requires long-term commitment to topical medicines that present numerous application challenges,” said Dr. Colin Theng, Senior Consultant and Chief of the Psoriasis Unit, National Skin Centre (NSC), and President of the Psoriasis Association of Singapore (PAS).
How does the PsorCARE program work?
With the objective of improving patient adherence for optimal outcome in the treatment of psoriasis, PsorCARE is a peer-based training platform that teaches trainees how to achieve a balance between asking, listening, and informing when communicating with patients about the living and overcoming the burden of their disease. The program also enables trainees to translate theoretical approaches to practical implementation.
More about PsorCARE in Singapore
The session on 26 January 2013 will be led by Colleen Scalise, RN, Clinical Lead, Nurse Counseling Program, and Field Nurse Team Leader, Bayshore Specialty Rx and Dr. Theng. Seven major local hospitals will be participating in the training session.
“As the leader of a team of field nurses for Canada’s largest provider of home and community health care services, and having worked extensively with Psoriasis patients, I understand the difficulties they go through physically and emotionally, as well as adhering to their treatment. As a healthcare provider, the support that we can give can benefit a patient greatly, and I am pleased that we have this opportunity to share our knowledge and experience with other healthcare providers here in Singapore,” said Ms. Scalise.

PsorCARE Backgrounder
About PsorCARE (Psoriasis Coach All-Round Education)
PsorCARE is the first-of -its-kind initiative developed by LEO Pharma Asia in collaboration with PsorAsia and the Singapore Nurses Association (SNA) to enhance the counseling skills of healthcare practitioners to specifically address a key unmet need of Psoriasis patients, treatment adherence.
The program aims to strengthen communication between healthcare practitioners and their patient in an attempt to increase treatment adherence, a major hurdle in the successful treatment and management of psoriasis, leading to better treatment outcomes for their patients.
Psoriasis is a common condition that affects up to three in every hundred people.[1] The most common type is ‘plaque’ psoriasis.[2] More than half of patients with plaque psoriasis also experience symptoms on their scalp.[3]
Many patients require a deeper and better understanding of their disease and available treatment options. Educating patients can be achieved by providing them with comprehensive information pamphlets, explaining their disease, and through treatment with other healthcare professionals including counseling support. The strategy behind this holistic approach to disease management is to allow the patient to better manage not only the physical attributes of the disease but psychological aspects as well, minimizing psoriasis’s impact on the patients’ daily lives.
For patients who require long-term therapy for psoriasis, treatment adherence – whether it be medicinal, behavioral, lifestyle or a combination of treatments – is essential for achieving optimal outcomes. Extensive market research has identified that adherence is founded on excellent communication and a positive relationship between the patient and healthcare practitioner. This is particularly true in the case of nurses who are in regular contact with the patients.[4] Nurses are in a unique position to lend their support to the patient who often requires additional assistance in order to cope with psoriasis. The support includes education, providing empathy, personalized care and importantly, managing the patients’ expectations of the treatment.
PsorCARE Core Program
The objective of PsorCARE is to improve patient adherence for an optimal outcome in the treatment of their psoriasis. The key feature of PsorCARE is a gentle form of counseling which was developed in the 1980s using the motivational interviewing (MI) method. The program addresses the following topics:
Patient’s perspective
Psoriasis disease overview
Counseling skills
Treatment options
Patient behavioral modification
PsorCARE Program Outcomes
A peer-based training platform, PsorCARE will strive to guide trainees to achieve a balance between asking, listening, and informing when communicating with patients about living with and overcoming the burden of their disease. The program also enables trainees to translate theoretical approaches to practical implementation.
PsorCARE will be rolled out initially in three markets across Asia starting with Singapore. LEO Pharma will organize the first training session on 26 Jan 2012 and the session will be led by RN Colleen Scalise, Clinical Lead, Nurse Counseling Program, and Field Nurse Team Leader, Bayshore Specialty Rx and Dr. Colin Theng, Senior Consultant and Chief of the Psoriasis Unit, National Skin Centre (NSC), and President of the Psoriasis Association of Singapore (PAS). A total of seven restructured hospitals in Singapore will be participating in the training session.
