C hild Protection Services is undergoing changes statewide meant to increase transparency, child-abuse prevention and standardize county CPS offices. Locally, a new questionnaire for callers reporting child abuse and training for parents with at-risk children have been introduced. The series showed that from 2007 to 2012, 178 children had died from abuse or neglect statewide and 72 of them were previously known to CPS workers. As part of the changes, the state launched a website last week with county-by-county child abuse and neglect data meant to increase transparency. The numbers show reports to CPS locally far outnumber cases in which abuse or neglect is found to be a problem. During 2013, there were 84 cases of child abuse or neglect, and the number of children in foster care in the county hovered at 30 in Montezuma County. CPS receives about 15 reports a week about po...

Top News. News. World News. News. The across-the-board federal cuts took $184 million out of Ohio's budget in 2013, reports Policy Matters Ohio. The Justice Department's Office on Women and Violence estimates that the sequester cut more than $26 million in appropriations under the Violence Against Women Act and the Family Violence Protection Services Act, which fund grants to state and local agencies to prosecute domestic-violence crimes; provide shelter programs, legal assistance, child services and training for police and victim advocates. "The sequester created a perfect storm that will deprive about 526,000 victims of services in fiscal 2013," predicted Kim Gandy, president and CEO of the Washington-based National Network to End Domestic Violence, an advocacy group of state domestic violence coalitions, allied organizations and individuals. "There is a lot of anxiety and confusion about what cuts in maternal and child health programs will mean at the local level because these programs have long-term conse...

There is little doubt that the burden of maternal mortality and morbidity falls disproportionately on poor and low educated women.

Counties Manukau commended for maternity services report. Counties Manukau commended for seeking women's experiences of maternity services 17 February, 2014 The Perinatal and Maternal Mortality Review Committee PMMRC has commended Counties Manukau Health for carrying out a report into women’s experiences of its maternity services. After discussion with the PMMRC, Counties Manukau Health commissioned an independent review into the provision of maternity care, followed by the current review into women’s experiences of maternity care. “We know there are some women who are reluctant to use maternity services, so we need to go out to the community to find out what kind of maternity services would work best for them.” While the Counties Manukau Health report interviewed only women living in the district, Dr Belgrave says the challenge of encouraging vulnerable women to seek support during their pregnancies is a wider problem in New Zealand. “It can be challenging to ask people for their experiences of health servic...

A Review of the Last Half-century: International Maternal Health Actors and Policies: International Actors. International Maternal Health Actors and Policies. International co-operation in maternal health started somewhat later, mostly in the mid-1960s, when Western donor countries and international agencies first started to fund maternal and child health MCH programmes of national Ministries of Health. By the 1970s, the family planning movement influenced those involved in maternal health. For other actors too, such as UNICEF or USAID, the focus and funding of MCH was actually geared to child health and family planning Rosenfield Maine 1985. TBA training programmes also drew considerable support and funds from UNICEF, UNFPA and USAID, among others, especially since the latter two agencies had a further interest in using TBAs as family planning workers. During the same period, the international women s health movement, which had emerged in the 1970s in the industrialised West, started leading global campaigns...

Maternal mortality causes 56,000 deaths every year in India, accounting for 20 percent of maternal deaths around the world, said John Townsend, vice president and director of the Population Council ’s reproductive health program. Leela Visaria, honorary professor at the Gujarat Institute of Development Research, agreed: “In practice, what it means is offering women a broad set of family planning and reproductive health services and maternal health services at the same delivery site and by the same provider,” she said. Visaria also emphasized the importance of family planning as part of maternal health. Contraception can help women space births further apart, leading to healthier pregnancies, healthier mothers, and healthier children, she said. Abhay Bang, director of the Society for Education, Action, and Research in Community Health, noted that 43 percent of rural women suffer from some kind of postpartum morbidity and that home-based care through accredited social health activists could significantly ...

Maternal Health Care. New York City, NY – In releasing a new report on maternal health nationwide, Amnesty International today revealed that flaws and shocking disparities in maternal health care that the government is ignoring lead to two to three women dying daily in the United States from pregnancy-related complications, with half of these deaths believed preventable, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The new Amnesty International report, Deadly Delivery: The Maternal Health Care Crisis in the USA, also reveals that severe pregnancy-related complications that nearly cause death -- known as "near misses" -- are rising at an alarming rate, increasing by 25 percent since 1998; currently nearly 34,000 women annually experience a "near miss" during delivery. Lack of access to health care centers and providers is a problem nationwide, the report found; in Oklahoma 47 percent of women live in medically underserved areas.

Maternity services may be saved. Stuff.co.nz. Stuff Home. Waikato Times. News. Hamilton's 150th. Maternity services may be saved. Pregnant women in Te Awamutu and Morrinsville could still have a facility in which they can give birth to their children next year. Three proposals have been received by the Waikato District Health Board to provide maternity services in the two towns, including full labour and birthing facilities, as well as postnatal services. The health board prompted outrage in the two communities last year, when it proposed to close down the Matariki and Rhoda Read maternity units in Te Awamutu and Morrinsville respectively. Although the public outcry was strong, the board nonetheless moved to close down the two units - with the proviso that an expressions-of-interest process be set in motion, to see if anyone else was willing to provide the services the health board was backing out of. As it turned out, three groups - two in Morrinsville, one in Te Awamutu - came through with proposals to prov...

(1/1477) Screening for congenital heart malformation in child health centres.

BACKGROUND: Although screening for congenital heart malformations is part of the child health care programme in several countries, there are very few published evaluations of these activities. This report is concerned with the evaluation of this screening at the Dutch Child Health Centres (CHC). METHODS: All consecutive patients, aged between 32 days and 4 years, presented at the Sophia Children's Hospital Rotterdam throughout a period of 2 years, with a congenital heart malformation were included in this study. Paediatric cardiologists established whether or not these patients were diagnosed after haemodynamic complications had already developed (diagnosed 'too late'). Parents and CHC-physicians were interviewed in order to establish the screening and detection history. Test properties were established for all patients with a congenital heart malformation (n = 290), intended effects of screening were established in patients with clinically significant malformations (n = 82). RESULTS: The sensitivity of the actual screening programme was 0.57 (95% CI : 0.51-0.62), the specificity 0.985 (95% CI : 0.981-0.990) and the predictive value of a positive test result 0.13 (95% CI: 0.10-0.19). Sensitivity in a subpopulation of patients adequately screened was 0.89 (95% CI: 0.74-0.96). Adequately screened patients were less likely to be diagnosed 'too late' than inadequately screened patients (odds ratio [OR] = 0.20, 95% CI: 0.04-1.05). The actual risk of being diagnosed 'too late' in the study-population (48%) was only slightly less than the estimated risk for patients not exposed to CHC-screening (58%, 95% CI: 43%-72%). Adequately screened patients however were at considerably less risk (17%, 95% CI: 4%-48%). CONCLUSION: Screening for congenital heart malformations in CHC contributes to the timely detection of these disorders. The actual yield, however, is far from optimal, and the screening programme should be improved.  (+info)

(2/1477) Developmental and paediatric care of the pre-school child.

Through an Upjohn Travelling Fellowship I visited 27 experts in childcare and sought their opinions on the privileges, possibilities, and problems in organising developmental and paediatric care for pre-school children in the United Kingdom.The role of the general practitioner was seen by many of the experts clearly. How he is to play it is shrouded in uncertainty. Research is urgently needed both on the tools of surveillance and on the different methods of arranging care.  (+info)

(3/1477) Health needs of preschool children.

An epidemiological study of disease in a geographically identified population of 250 children is reported. 22% had not seen their general practitioner (GP) at all in the past year, while 20% had seen him four times or more. The vast majority of these visits were because of an infective illness; and developmental and behavioural problems were rarely presented to GPs. 53% of children had not been to hospital since birth, but 11% had been at least four times. Respiratory infections and middle ear disease were the commonest illness reported, and nearly 3% had an infected or discharging ear at the time of examination. 15% of 3 year olds had speech and language problems. 18% of children over 2 years were thought by the examiners to have a behavioural problem, half being assessed as mild, the remainder as moderate or severe.  (+info)

(4/1477) Use of the Pediatric Symptom Checklist to screen for psychosocial problems in pediatric primary care: a national feasibility study.

BACKGROUND: Routine use of a brief psychosocial screening instrument has been proposed as a means of improving recognition, management, and referral of children's psychosocial morbidity in primary care. OBJECTIVE: To assess the feasibility of routine psychosocial screening using the Pediatric Symptom Checklist (PSC) in pediatrics by using a brief version of the checklist in a large sample representative of the full range of pediatric practice settings in the United States and Canada. We evaluated large-scale screening and the performance of the PSC in detecting psychosocial problems by (1) determining whether the prevalence of psychosocial dysfunction identified by the PSC was consistent with findings in previous, smaller samples; (2) assessing whether the prevalence of positive PSC screening scores varied by population subgroups; and (3) determining whether the PSC was completed by a significant proportion of parents from all subgroups and settings. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-one thousand sixty-five children between the ages of 4 and 15 years were seen in 2 large primary care networks: the Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network and the Pediatric Research in Office Settings network, involving 395 pediatric and family practice clinicians in 44 states, Puerto Rico, and 4 Canadian provinces. Parents were asked to complete a brief questionnaire that included demographic information, history of mental health services, the 35-item PSC, and the number of pediatric visits within the past 6 months. RESULTS: The overall prevalence rates of psychosocial dysfunction as measured by the PSC in school-aged and preschool-aged pediatric outpatients (13% and 10%, respectively) were nearly identical to the rates that had been reported in several smaller samples (12%-14% among school-aged children and 7%-14% among preschoolers). Consistent with previous findings, children from low-income families were twice as likely to be scored as dysfunctional on the PSC than were children from higher-income families. Similarly, children from single-parent as opposed to those from 2-parent families and children with a past history of mental health services showed an elevated risk of psychosocial impairment. The current study was the first to demonstrate a 50% increase in risk of impairment for male children. The overall rate of completed forms was 97%, well within an acceptable range, and at least 94% of the parents in each sociodemographic subgroup completed the PSC form. CONCLUSIONS: Use of the PSC offers an approach to the recognition of psychosocial dysfunction that is sufficiently consistent across groups and locales to become part of comprehensive pediatric care in virtually all outpatient settings. In addition to its clinical utility, the consistency and widespread acceptability of the PSC make it well suited for the next generation of pediatric mental health services research, which can address whether earlier recognition of and intervention for psychosocial problems in pediatrics will lead to cost-effective outcomes.  (+info)

(5/1477) Challenges in securing access to care for children.

Congressional approval of Title XXI of the Social Security Act, which created the State Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), is a significant public effort to expand health insurance to children. Experience with the Medicaid program suggests that eligibility does not guarantee children's enrollment or their access to needed services. This paper develops an analytic framework and presents potential indicators to evaluate CHIP's performance and its impact on access, defined broadly to include access to health insurance and access to health services. It also presents options for moving beyond minimal monitoring to an evaluation strategy that would help to improve program outcomes. The policy considerations associated with such a strategy are also discussed.  (+info)

(6/1477) Lot quality assurance sampling for monitoring immunization programmes: cost-efficient or quick and dirty?

In recent years Lot quality assurance sampling (LQAS), a method derived from production-line industry, has been advocated as an efficient means to evaluate the coverage rates achieved by child immunization programmes. This paper examines the assumptions on which LQAS is based and the effect that these assumptions have on its utility as a management tool. It shows that the attractively low sample sizes used in LQAS are achieved at the expense of specificity unless unrealistic assumptions are made about the distribution of coverage rates amongst the immunization programmes to which the method is applied. Although it is a very sensitive test and its negative predictive value is probably high in most settings, its specificity and positive predictive value are likely to be low. The implications of these strengths and weaknesses with regard to management decision-making are discussed.  (+info)

(7/1477) Paediatric home care in Tower Hamlets: a working partnership with parents.

OBJECTIVES: To describe the first two years of a paediatric home care service. DESIGN: Observational cross sectional study, 1989-91. SETTING: One inner London health district. PATIENTS: 611 children referred to the service; 50 children selected from those referred during the first year, whose parents were interviewed and whose general practitioners were invited to complete a questionnaire. MAIN MEASURES: Description and costs of service; views of parents and general practitioners of selected sample of children. RESULTS: In its second year the team received 303 referrals and made 4004 visits at a salary cost of 98000 pounds, an average of 323 pounds/referral and 24 pounds/visit. This represented a referral rate of 3.2% (258/7939) of inpatient episodes from the main referring hospital between 1 December 1989 and 30 November 1990. Of all referrals to the service, 343(56%) came from hospital inpatient wards. The service was used by disadvantaged and ethnic minority families. The children's parents (in 28(61%) families) and the home care team did a wide range of nursing tasks in the home. Parents of 47(94%) children sampled agreed to be interviewed, and those of 43(91%) found the service useful; guidance and support were most commonly appreciated (33, 70%). Parents of 25(53%) children said that hospital stay or attendance had been reduced or avoided. Parents and general practitioners disagreed on clinical responsibility in 10 children, and communication was a problem for some general practitioners. CONCLUSIONS: The service enabled children to receive advanced nursing care at home. Clinical responsibility should be agreed between parents and professionals at referral.  (+info)

(8/1477) Sending parents outpatient letters about their children: parents' and general practitioners' views.

Parents' cooperation is essential to ensuring implementation of effective healthcare management of children, and complete openness should exist between paediatricians and parents. One method of achieving this is to send parents a copy of the outpatient letter to the general practitioner (GP) after the child's outpatient consultation. To determine the views of parents and GPs a pilot survey was conducted in two general children's outpatient clinics in hospitals in Newcastle upon Tyne. In March and April 1991 a postal questionnaire was sent to 57 parents of children attending the clinics, and a similar questionnaire to their GPs to elicit, respectively, parents' understanding of the letter and perception of its helpfulness, and GPs' views on the value of sending the letters to parents. Completed questionnaires were received from 34(60%) parents and 47(82%) GPs; 26(45%) respondents were matched pairs. 27(79%) parents said they understood all of the letter, 19(56%) that it helped their understanding, 32(94%) felt it was a good idea, and 31(91%) made positive comments. In all, 29(61%) GPs favoured the idea and six (13%) did not. Eleven (23%) said they would be concerned if this became routine practice, and 20(74%) of the 27 providing comments were doubtful or negative; several considered that they should communicate information to parents. The views in the matched pairs were dissimilar: parents were universally in favour whereas many GPs had reservations. The authors concluded that sending the letters improved parents' satisfaction with communication, and they recommend that paediatricians consider adopting this practice.  (+info)


How are the adult mental health services compared to child and adolescent mental health services in the UK?


I've been in mental health services since i was 11. I'm 17 now n 18 later this year. I've found child and adolescent mental health services useless up to this point.

So i guess i'm just wondering if there's better care provided by the adult team?
----------

Child and adolescent services in the UK are so **** I was in CAHMS since I was 10 and they never helped one bit but adult services aren't so great either. I'm 18 now and I have only just been taken seriously after being hospitalized and finally I have a diagnosis but they do not listen, the UK are hopeless in health care because its free. I hope you get the help you need, good luck x


Can a friend call Child And Adolescent Mental Health Service to make an appointment for you?


I have a letter to call and make an appointment at child and adolescent mental health services. But I'm not good on the phone or making calls because I panic really badly and go into an anxiety attack. I was wondering if a friend would be able to call them for me, I don't have family to do so. 
So all I'm wondering really is if my friend would be able to do it, like would they accept that or not?
----------

Yes as long as he/she explains that they are acting on your behalf all you will have to do is be present when the call is made and verify to them who you are and that you agree to what's happening it will most likely be a yes/no answer from you. Good luck


Where can i read stories of young people's experiences of mental health services?


Is there anywhere where i can read about the experiences of young people who have been involved with the mental health services? 

Specifically i am looking for the experiences of 17 year old males involved with CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services), but experiances outside of this criteria will be helpful too. 

I am looking to put their feedback into part of a presentation on the problems young people with mental health problems face.
----------

Have you tried Youngminds.org.uk

It might have something - there are experiences of children - not sure how old.


What happens at this type of appointment?


I have been referred to my local child mental health service by my doctor and I have an appointment with them the week after next. In the letter it said it was an 'initial routine assessment' and I should allow 1 and a half hours for the appointment. Does anyone know what is going to happen at this appointment, why is it so long?
----------

They want to get to know you so that they can formulate some idea of how best to help you. It's basically a bunch of questions dealing with your history and any present needs or concerns you may have. They don't start counseling until maybe the second or third visit.


What mental health services could you benefit from?


Hi, I'm conducting an informal survey for mental health services, my question is, if you were to receive counseling or assistance from a mental health services provider, what would you want?  For example if you are depressed, what kind of attention/care would you hope to get?  I appreciate your time.  Thanks!
----------

I am already on medication for both BiPolar and anxiety, so I suppose that talk therapy about the causes of my episodes would be helpful, too.


What do you think of mental health services and young people?


Do you think young people know a lot about mental health services available to them in their area or school. I am interested in working with young people with mental health problems/issues, but I don't know how to go about this topic. Do you think there are many young people that are suffering in silence about their mental health well being and lastly do you think young people only see mental health services available to adults and are young people embarrassed about discussing mental health issues. Thanks for reading.

well, I am a young girl (15) and I'm suffering in silence. I have been feeling depressed and self harming for 9 months now, and the reason I haven't gone to anyone is because I'm scared of putting my emotions right put their. in my opinion, I don't think many high schools offer enough help and support and awareness of these kind of issues. if you're interested in working with young mentally Ill people, then do a psychology course and observe the behaviour of people you might think are suffering with serious issues. I know it would be easier for me if someone came up to me and said that they noticed something was up and was there to offer support. I think it's great what you're doing, not sure if this was the right answer you're looking for. hope I helped


Are county health and human social services primarily only for women, children and the elderly?


I am working class and couldn’t afford mental health services for counseling on my own.  I called county social services but unless I was a police code 5150, there didn’t seem to be any social services counseling.  Instead the primary chunk of social services seemed geared only towards mothers with children, children themselves, the chronically homeless, addicts, or the elderly.

Is it a mistake for childless adult males, who aren’t suicidal but need mental health counseling, to seek county services?
----------

It's never a mistake to try.  Whether you qualify depends on your county.  Usually there are some public mental health programs.  For some, you have to be on public assistance.  It depends a lot on where you are. I think you are in CA because you reference a CA police code.  Look for the number for mental health services in your county.  If they say you don't qualify, ask for referrals to other low cost providers- they should have phone numbers.

Consider looking outside of public services, too.  Often, clinics associated with universities will offer discounted/sliding scale services.  Some non-profits also offer sliding scale fees.  I worked for a CA non-profit in the high desert that offered services by intern therapists (Master's trained) for $1 a session.


What is the purpose of student health services at college?


Wondering why they are there, is it a nurse or what? And when would you go to see them?
I was feeling really dizzy the other day and was going to go to have them check my blood pressure heart rate but wasn't sure what they were really there for. LOL

First year at college. Just diagnosed with a rare, fatal lung/heart disease, not many doctors or nurses know about so not even sure if the health services at my college can help me if I have an issue while in class.
----------

Student Health Services is your line of protection away at school. If the school you attend is large, there is probably more than one nurse. The nurse may be an LVN(licensed vocational nurse)that dispenses health care. Surely the Health Services has a doctor, but the doctor may be on call for emergencies. I remember when I was a freshman, I got my penis caught in my pants zipper and could not release the zipper. I placed a towel around my waist and walked to the health-services building. The nurse was attractive, and the last person I wanted to show my stuck penis was she. She tried to remove my penis without success, so she called the doctor. The doctor also tried to release my penis from the zipper, but my penis would not move. The doctor filled a syringe with a solution like Novcaine and injected a small amount around my penis. In 15 minutes, my penis was numb, and the doctor had to force my penis from the zipper. The glan of my penis was cut, and the doctor bandaged my penis, gave me a Tetanus shot and sent me to my apartment. The doctor advised me to wear a Kotex around my penis until healed.

Sorry for the long description, but I had to explain.
