ZONA DE IMPACTO (4): Let's discuss students' evaluation?

In the last two years, because of the covid-19 pandemic, national exams did not count towards the conclusion of secondary subjects but only towards access to higher education. Does it make sense for this to become the rule from now on? The topic is analyzed and discussed in this episode of Zona de Impacto by researchers and students from Nova SBE Catarina Ângelo and Pedro Freitas, and Professor Ana Balcão Reis.

Using PROMs to evaluate care for people with chronic conditions

Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) allow patients to report their health status before and after treatment and can be used to assess the quality of care. A number of countries collect PROMs from those with acute health problems and use this information in routine performance assessment. We address these challenges in our analysis of care delivered to patients with inflammatory chronic rheumatic disease in Portugal.

ZONA DE IMPACTO (3): Mindsets have evolved, but women continue to be discriminated in the labor market. Why?

The statistics are known. Women have a higher qualification rate than men, but they earn worse (for equal jobs) and are more precarious. When it comes to reaching positions of responsibility, their lives are more difficult (and the bigger the companies, the worse). The topic is old, solutions take time to take effect, and the issue raises concern among young people. Marta Everard and Rita Mendes, Nova SBE students and members of the Women on Board club, explain how they envision their future work.
