Opis: The paper outlines the spatial development of the cross-border region between the two cities - Graz (Austria) and Maribor (Slovenia) - with regard to the integration processes in the past, present and future. First, the analyses of the past, when both parts of the region shared the national border, will be discussed. It will emphasize the consequences of the ćborder effectć, which are mostly characterised by growing intensification of urbanization alongside the main transport axis, the emergence of new 'urban nods', and the gradual urban sprawl in the hinterland. For decades, the area has been generating various integration processes of economic, social and cultural collaboration, which were in most cases partly financed by the European Union (EU). In 2004, after Slovenia joined the EU, some traditional relationships started to perform in the opposite way, demonstrating the gradually diminishing rate of commuter flows, especially those of shopping tourism. However, the current regional development is characterised by strong efforts for balancing the economic, social and cultural standards on both sides of the cross-border region. The paper aims to identify these new dynamics of intraregional interactions as potentials for future developments.

Opis: Background: The aim of this study was to acquire data related to the prevalence of self-medication use among inhabitants of Slovenia. We focused onthe use of different self-medication practices, reasons for their use, the groups that use them, and probable association with socioeconomic status of anindividual user. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study, based on anonymous questionnaires, mailed in April 2009 to one thousand randomly choseninhabitants in all regions of the Republic of Slovenia. Results: We got 41.0 % response rate. 51.0 % of the respondents have used some form of selftreatment in the previous year. 69.3 % used OTC drugs and 38.3 % prescription drugs for self-medication. 83.1 % of them got the drugs for self-medication from the pharmacist but 23.0 % of them got the drugs for self-medication from their friends and relatives. Several demographical characteristics of the respondents were statistically significantly associatedwith self-med-ication practices; thus women were more likely using OTC drugs, vitamins and minerals, and more likely buying them in pharmacies, as compared to men; students and active population were more likely to use OTCdrugs, also more likely buying them in pharmacies as compared to other population groups. Conclusions: The use of self-medication in Slovenia is veryhigh, but mainly in quite safe mode. Majority of medicines are bought in regulated pharmacies, where users can also get pharmaceutical care. Physicianshave to take into account self-medication in their patients, take a thorough self-medication history and make good use of each consultation by educating the patients on appropriate and safe use of prescribed and OTC medicines.

, 2013, izvirni znanstveni članek
Opis: This multicentre, cross-sectional observational study aimed to determine the prevalence of depression among the working population of Slovenia and identify factors correlating with higher prevalence of depression. It was conducted in three occupational medicine practices within major Slovenian primary health care centres. The study population consisted of 1,474 respondents [73.7 % of the invited participants, 889 (60.3 %) men and 585 (39.7 %) women with mean age of (40.5±9.8) years] who visited these practices for their regular check-ups from November 2010 to June 2012 and were asked to fill in a self-developed questionnaire and score depression on the Zung’s self-rating depression scale. According to the rating, 50 (3.4 %) respondents suffered from depression. In the multivariate analysis, depression correlated with the following independent variables: self-perceived exposure to chronic stress, positive family history of depression, and primary school education.
