Dear colleagues,


It is a pleasure to announce that a new scientific paper has been published on the CBRN special, that is one of the 3 the special issue of SICC Series - CBRNe Conference 2020 published on the International Journal of Safety and Security Engineering (Guest editors of the special issue: Dr. Andrea Malizia, Dr. Marco D'Arienzo and Dr. Parag Chatterjee).


Khalfaoui, I., Hammouche, A. (2021). The impact of the patient's state on the destination care unit choice within the health emergency services regional network (HES-RN) in Morocco. International Journal of Safety and Security Engineering, Vol. 11, No. 4, pp. 455-461.






In the health sector and in order to avoid life threatening situations, it is obvious that the patient's state of severity has a very strong impact on what the patient's transfer time should not exceed. In this paper, we are interested in the dynamic evolution of these states of severity and the decision, to which Care Unit of destination (CUd) should the concerned patient be transferred as quickly as possible, may be most critical. In this sense, we present a model that allows us to conclude on the choice of the different candidate CUd to receive the patient, which takes into account both the CU qualification and the severity of the Occurrence of events of Health Emergency (OHE) in question.
