Estimating the Effects of Potential Public Health Interventions on Population Disease Burden: A Step-by-Step Illustration of Causal Inference Methods Jennifer Ahern ,. Abstract Causal inference methods allow estimation of the effects of potential public health interventions on the population burden of disease. Analysis step 1 The first step in this analysis was to estimate the association between the exposure, neighborhood smoking norms, and the outcome, current smoking. These averages of the individual probabilities estimated the prevalence of smoking for each level of neighborhood smoking norms if, contrary to fact, that “set” level of norms had been present in the whole population.

Public health is the backbone of our society. Without the contributions of public health initiatives, what new disease epidemic might we face and how many lives would be lost.  Successful public health programs depend on research, an often underappreciated facet of the system. By taking a critical look at the data and bringing the right programs to the right communities at the right time, research can target and increase the effectiveness of public health interventions.

(1/103) Pfiesteria-related educational products and information resources available to the public, health officials, and researchers.

Public and political concerns about Pfiesteria from 1997 to the present vastly exceed the attention given to other harmful algal bloom (HAB) issues in the United States. To some extent, the intense focus on Pfiesteria has served to increase attention on HABs in general. Given the strong and continuing public, political, and research interests in Pfiesteria piscicida Steidinger & Burkholder and related organisms, there is a clear need for information and resources of many different types. This article provides information on Pfiesteria-related educational products and information resources available to the general public, health officials, and researchers. These resources are compiled into five categories: reports; website resources; state outreach and communication programs; fact sheets; and training manuals and documentaries. Over the last few years there has been rapid expansion in the amount of Pfiesteria-related information available, particularly on the Internet, and it is scattered among many different sources.  (+info)

Further, we highlight the need for continued vigilance and broad partnership development if we are to maintain public support for public health. Finally, we point to the need for better language, compelling case reports, and quantitative capacity assessment to guide policymakers and program leaders and to ensure long-term support.  (+info)

The wider circle includes almost all physicians, dentists, and nurses, plus many other health, environmental, and public safety professionals. The task of ensuring that this workforce is prepared with skills and knowledge to face both identified and emerging public health challenges is immense.  (+info)

OBJECTIVE: To describe how adolescents use technology for their health-information needs, identify the challenges they face, and highlight some emerging roles of health professionals regarding eHealth services for adolescents. METHODS: Using an inductive qualitative research design, 27 focus groups were conducted in Ontario, Canada. The 210 participants (55% female, 45% male; median age 16 years) were selected to reflect diversity in age, sex, geographic location, cultural identity, and risk. An 8-person team analyzed and coded the data according to major themes. RESULTS: Study participants most-frequently sought or distributed information related to school (89%), interacting with friends (85%), social concerns (85%), specific medical conditions (67%), body image and nutrition (63%), violence and personal safety (59%), and sexual health (56%). Finding personally-relevant, high-quality information was a pivotal challenge that has ramifications on the depth and types of information that adolescents can find to answer their health questions. Privacy in accessing information technology was a second key challenge. Participants reported using technologies that clustered into 4 domains along a continuum from highly-interactive to fixed information sources: (1) personal communication: telephone, cell phone, and pager; (2) social communication: e-mail, instant messaging, chat, and bulletin boards; (3) interactive environments: Web sites, search engines, and computers; and (4) unidirectional sources: television, radio, and print. Three emerging roles for health professionals in eHealth include: (1) providing an interface for adolescents with technology and assisting them in finding pertinent information sources; (2) enhancing connection to youths by extending ways and times when practitioners are available; and (3) fostering critical appraisal skills among youths for evaluating the quality of health information. CONCLUSIONS: This study helps illuminate adolescent health-information needs, their use of information technologies, and emerging roles for health professionals. The findings can inform the design and more-effective use of eHealth applications for adolescent populations.  (+info)

(5/103) A model curriculum for public health bioterrorism education.

Beginning with the spring semester of 2001, a course designed to prepare future public health leaders for potential bioterrorism events has been offered by the University of Connecticut Graduate Program in Public Health. Entitled "The Public Health Response to Bioterrorism," this popular course was one of the few developed by academic programs in the United States prior to the attack of September 11, 2001. The course utilizes innovative teaching methods and presentations by distinguished guest speakers to educate public health personnel, public health and medical students, and physicians and nurses about the complex issues involved in the public health response to bioterrorism. The instructional methods and curriculum can serve as prototypes for similar efforts.  (+info)

(6/103) An innovation in partnership among first responders and public health: bridging the gap.

To properly prepare for and respond to bioterrorism and other urgent public health threats and emergencies, response disciplines must work together in well coordinated efforts to address the preparedness needs of their communities and the nation. Traditional public health workforce and first responder roles have been challenged and new partnerships have emerged, increasing the need for innovative education and training. This article provides a review of an approach the Heartland Center for Public Health Preparedness took to foster these partnerships and increase the provision of competency-based, integrated responder education and training in the St. Louis, MO, metropolitan area.  (+info)

(7/103) The practice community meets the ivory tower: a health department/academic partnership to improve public health preparedness.

When the local health department of Montgomery County, Maryland, was chosen to participate in Project Public Health Ready and was charged with the daunting task of providing a comprehensive emergency preparedness plan, training all 600 employees to carry out that plan, and conducting exercises to demonstrate the department's competency, it realized it couldn't do it alone. The department sought the assistance of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The first challenge for these unlikely partners, one a bastion of research and the other firmly immersed in the practice world of public health, was to figure out how to work together. This article describes the development of their partnership; outlines the preparedness plan, training, and exercises that resulted from the partnership; summarizes the challenges and benefits for each entity; and enumerates lessons learned that could be useful to other public health entities planning to undertake similar partnerships.  (+info)

(8/103) Transforming a Master of Public Health program to address public health practice needs.

The future of the constantly changing public health profession is tied to the development of practice skills through competency-based training. In this article, we describe a program change in the Master of Public Health program at East Stroudsburg University in northeastern Pennsylvania. The first goal of the program transition was to ensure that all program elements included the relevant vision, values, mission, goals, and objectives. The second goal was to use continuous data input and evaluation to incorporate opportunities for flexible assessments. The change process helped the university faculty define the program's vision and fostered an environment of community collaboration that guides training for public health professionals.  (+info)


What's a really good way to gain experience in the field of public health during the summer?


I would like to pursue my education in public health. I'm from a social science/international development background. I am mostly interested in injuries, violence, mental health and women's health. I'm volunteering at the Sexual Assault Center but I'm sure there's something else I could do during the summer.
----------

You can also try volunteering at any state run facility for the mentally handicapped. There you will find mental,physical, and aggressive behavior patients all at one facility. You will probably have to go through a 2 week safety training session for both the safety of yourself and the people there. You might also try to volunteer at a place for women that have been in a physically abusive relationship. I would imagine you might have to go though the state or county for that because of the safety issues. Good luck and God Bless. This is a very hard career to work in. I actually did most of my nursing in a state facility. People like yourself are desperately needed and I'm sure you'll find that there are so many rewards that you'll be glad you did. It's a very hard job, but your will be gratified in the care of the people that you come in contact with.


What is the difference between public health and community health?


A. Public health involves the health of the nation, and community health involves doctors and other health professionals in a community.
B. Public health protects the health of everyone, and community health protects the health of all those in a particular community.
C. Public health gives free health care to individuals, and community health keeps the food, water supply, and general environment healthy for the community.
D. Public health is concerned with the health of individuals, and community health is concerned with overall health statistics.

----------

A. Public health looks at everyone from all over. We (I'm an epidemiologist) are concerned with things that may be coming down the pike and hit all of us (like bird flu, etc.). Community health mostly involves doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals that tailor interventions to a particular community's needs, and they generally don't plan out for "the bigger picture", although they do a heck a job in their locales, since they know it better.


what do you think a mental health professional would do if a patient of theirs was a diaper lover?


i always get people on here saying i need mental help for being a diaper lover, but honestly what would a mental health professional even do? i dont think they would do anything because isnt their only concern if you are dangerous to yourself/others?
its not really a sexual thing for me, but nonetheless its something i do alone.
yeah i wear (and use) diapers/nappies (whatever you want to call them), in my spare time when nobody else is around.
----------

A good mental health professional would understand that, as long as your activities only included consenting adults, you're not doing anything worth worrying about and wouldn't criticize whether he or she agreed with it or not.

Everyone's got their kinks.  As long as you're keeping your kink in the realm of consenting adult playmates, knock yourself out.  And, don't pay attention to the haters.


What are 2 public health concerns that have a bearing on nutritonal status?


I have to a do a nutrition project for nursing school and I have to write something on the following question but I can't figure out what the 2 public health concerns may be.  Any help?

What are 2 public health concerns that have a bearing on nutritonal status?
----------

Salmonella tomatoes...

and other bad fruits and veggies...


What are some public health concerns associated with plastics?


I'm doing a paper in favor of bioplastics. I'm wondering what are the cons of using plastics, in regard to public health. 
Does burning them in landfill release volitile chemicals? Which ones? Are there material within the plastic which will leech out?
----------

There's currently a controversy over whether or not those popular Nalgene bottles are safe, since independent research has revealed the possibility that their polyurethane plastic material might leech an estrogen-like chemincal that could interfere with one's hormone balance and thus affect one's health.


How do I find a mental health professional in my area?


Is there a website where I can find a good mental health professional (therapist/counselor) in my area, like 1800dentist, something along those lines? thanks for any info.
----------

look in phone book or call a doctor and ask for a behavioral clinic.


What does a Public Health Emergency Level 5 mean?


What happens when the public health reaches level 5? One of my friends said that all of the schools get shut down, but it seems that we've already reached level five because of the swine flu but we're still in school...So what happens at this level and can someone explain what happens at the various levels?
----------

No it just means that the World Health Org thinks that a pandemic is imminent. It happens when it has spread from person to person in two or more countries.

In the 2009 revision of the phase descriptions, WHO has retained the use of a six-phased approach for easy incorporation of new recommendations and approaches into existing national preparedness and response plans. The grouping and description of pandemic phases have been revised to make them easier to understand, more precise, and based upon observable phenomena. Phases 1–3 correlate with preparedness, including capacity development and response planning activities, while Phases 4–6 clearly signal the need for response and mitigation efforts. Furthermore, periods after the first pandemic wave are elaborated to facilitate post pandemic recovery activities.
