          • I am a Licensed Optician - Mary Field


            from Licensed Optician Added 27 0 0

            In this video, Mary Field from Winnipeg, MB, talks about the evolution of Opticianry that she has experienced in her 40-year career as an Optician and a leader in the profession. Early advances in technology and lens materials established Opticians as an integral part of the overall healthcare team. As more lens options and frame styles became available, the emphasis gradually shifted from healthcare to fashion. Mary describes how the profession of Opticianry has now come full circle with the emphasis once again on the health needs of the patient. The addition of unregulated providers, along with an aging population, has forced Opticians to re-examine their scope of practice and define how best to ensure the vision health of the general public. This is a time when Opticians need to focus on their core skills and scientific knowledge and make that the focal point of what Opticians do for their patients. We hope you will share this video in your practices and industry events and share Opticians' passion to "Become an expert and love what you do." *The Licensed Optician Official Marks are CIPO registered Official Marks used under license. Opticians requesting use of the Official Marks must be members in good standing with their provincial regulatory health college. *The provision of eye health care varies from province to province. These videos may depict practices that are not representative of all providers.

              Beyond The Headlines Blue Ocean Network Beijing, China Reporter & Editor: Kelda Yuen Air Date: May 17th, 2010 Running Time: 6 minutes 6 seconds China is one of the most rapidly-aging countries in the developing world. But although it has seen incredible economic growth in recent times, its wealth is very thinly spread. This factor means China will have much more trouble absorbing the costs of rapid aging than richer nations such as the U.S. and Canada. Kelda Yuen reports on the factors that have led to this dilemma.

                  from gregor timlin Added 605 3 1

                  The ability to eat and drink with dignity and independence is often taken for granted, yet is a key indicator of quality of life for care home residents. This project aims to improve this experience by designing tableware to help maintain eating skills for longer and by creating architectural features such as light fittings which compensate for disabilities common to ageing.

                  • Low Fertility in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan: Economic and Strategic Implications


                    from East-West Center Added 535 0 0

                    Low fertility, population aging and population decline are often cited as three poisons which are draining the economic vitality and political influence of Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. Dr. Michael Sutton challenges this popular view. His research, drawing in part from interviews with key policymakers in the region in August, 2010, tells a different story: policymakers are aware of these demographic trends and are cautiously optimistic that higher fertility levels will be reached by enacting prudent public policy. Dr. Richard Sutton, Demographer-in-Reidence at the Henry L. Stimson Center and Ms. Yuki Tatsumi, Senior Associate of the East Asia Program at the Henry L. Stimson Center join as discussants.

                      Despite its economic woes, the United States is in much better shape demographically than almost any other developed country in the world including many countries like Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Japan, and even China. Listen to Ira S Wolfe, author of Perfect Labor Storm 2.0, discuss with Behind the Lines host Diane Dayton, why aging population in developed countries is going to create unprecedented shortages of skilled workers.
