The entire process began with a facilities condition assessment, which looked closely at 75 buildings from an architectural and engineering standpoint to identify remedial work that needed to be done to each of them and how quickly it needed to be done. Several utility infrastructure projects were quickly identified as being top priorities. "Making sure the infrastr...

*  .. Top Priority of Modi Government should be RULE OF LAW .. 4 Comments on Top Priority of Modi Gov
Jun. 2. Top Priority of Modi Government should be RULE OF LAW. In his answer to the question, “What is Law?”, French economist, statesman and author Frederic Bastiat 1801-1850 in his pamphlet The Law 1850 wrote,. “The law is the organisation of the natural right of lawful defense. It is the substitution of a common force for individual forces. And this common force is to do only what the individual forces have a natural and lawful right to do: to protect persons, liberties and properties; to maintain the right of each, and to cause justice to reign over us all.”. The Law that limits itself role of government to securing person, property and liberty of each individual, that does not see individuals through the lenses of caste/religion an individual belongs to, that does not intervene into the affairs of businesses; is what we should strive for. Maintaining law and order is also what some economists have called first order public good, and effective provision of this should form the top priority of any governme...

Setting directions and goals for animal production systems requires the integration of information achieved through internal and external processes. The importance of stakeholder input in setting goals for sustainable animal production systems should not be overlooked by the agricultural animal industries. Stakeholders play an integral role in setting the course for many aspects of animal production, from influencing consumer preferences to setting public policy. The Socially Sustainable Egg Production Project SSEP involved the development of white papers on various aspects of egg production, followed by a stakeholder workshop to help frame the issues for the future of sustainable egg production. Representatives from the environmental, food safety, food retail, consumer, animal welfare, and the general farm and egg production sectors participated with mem...

Although his peripheral statistics do not really suggest there was much of a deviation from his 2008 or 2009 season, there were underlying issues that kept Scott Baker from pitching at the same level as he did in the second-half of 2009. Even though the elbow soreness wasn t discussed as a factor until July, there are signs that it influenced his pitches dating back to the beginning of the season and throughout most of the past year. Over at BaseballProspectus.com, Pitch f/x guru Mike Fast identified a handful of pitchers who had altered their release points. either horizontally or vertically. Fast noticed that Baker demonstrated a significant vertical drop comparative to his 2008 and 2009 seasons:. In his study, Fast did not offer a conclusion or a theory as to why he believed Baker had changed his delivery. A case could be made that Baker s elbow pain started somewhere in the early part of the season and caused him to shift his ...

No kidding it gives you chills to think that they solved all their nagging problems with just a single phone conversation. Maybe next time they will work on world peace and a cure for cancer. What a clever solution: Pay for debt with more debt. It s so impressive. The week featured four straight sessions of gains, which was only the second time that had occurred since July 1.

Prioritising Profit: Poverty In A Land Of Plenty. By David Cromwell. September 15, 2004 /. Email this page. Posted in: Iraq, Media Main, Mideast, North America, Parecon, Vision/Strategy. No comments. Child Poverty. Who Cares!According to recent British government figures, a staggering 3.6 million children are living in poverty in the UK. The official definition of ‘poverty’ refers to families earning less than 60 per cent of average income. Between 1979 and 2003, the proportion of poor children in the UK rose from 1 in 10, to almost 1 in 3. This is a genuine scandal that any responsible journalist would mention every time a government minister boasts of Britain’s ‘healthy economy’. A report titled ‘Poverty in a land of plenty’, published earlier this year by End Child Poverty, a coalition of social justice groups, reveals the tragedy that: “A baby born into poverty is more than twice as likely to die in the first year as a child born to better-off parents and as many as 1,400 lives would be saved if poverty w...

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. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION In this analysis, we presented 1 approach to estimate the effects of a specific potential intervention with neighborhood smoking norms on the burden of smoking in the whole population. In the illustrative example, we found that, if smok...

(1/868) Effect of discussion and deliberation on the public's views of priority setting in health care: focus group study.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the extent to which people change their views about priority setting in health care as a result of discussion and deliberation. DESIGN: A random sample of patients from two urban general practices was invited to attend two focus group meetings, a fortnight apart. SETTING: North Yorkshire Health Authority. SUBJECTS: 60 randomly chosen patients meeting in 10 groups of five to seven people. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Differences between people's views at the start of the first meeting and at the end of the second meeting, after they have had an opportunity for discussion and deliberation, measured by questionnaires at the start of the first meeting and the end of the second meeting. RESULTS: Respondents became more reticent about the role that their views should play in determining priorities and more sympathetic to the role that healthcare managers play. About a half of respondents initially wanted to give lower priority to smokers, heavy drinkers, and illegal drug users, but after discussion many no longer wished to discriminate against these people. CONCLUSION: The public's views about setting priorities in health care are systematically different when they have been given an opportunity to discuss the issues. If the considered opinions of the general public are required, surveys that do not allow respondents time or opportunity for reflection may be of doubtful value.  (+info)

(2/868) Diabetes care: who are the experts?

OBJECTIVES: To identify issues that patients and professionals consider important in diabetes care and differences in their priorities for care and to determine patients' and professionals' judgements of the relative importance of their chosen priorities. DESIGN: Structured group interviews using the nominal group technique. SETTING: Five district health authorities on Tyneside. SUBJECTS: Five nominal groups: expert (seven), non-expert (seven) health care professionals; insulin dependent (four), non-insulin dependent patients (eight); and carers of diabetic patients (eight). MAIN MEASURES: Items important in diabetes care to each nominal group (themes of care), ranked into a series of "top 10" items for each group, and allocated a score according to relative importance to individual members; scores were standardised by individual weighting and group weighting for comparison within and between groups. RESULTS: Patients and professionals agreed that information given to patients, interaction between professionals and patients, patient autonomy, and access were important for good diabetes care, but the importance assigned to each differed. Thus the professionals emphasised empathy and aspects of good communication and patients the desire to know enough to live a "normal" life. Differences were also found within the patient groups; these related to changes in patients' needs at specific points in the development of their illness and in their orientations to care. CONCLUSION: Patients differ from professionals in their orientation to diabetes care, and they can, and should, be involved in setting priorities for care. Since these priorities are dynamic further work is needed to explore the nature of patient satisfaction with diabetes care.  (+info)

(3/868) Policy priorities in diabetes care: a Delphi study.

OBJECTIVES: To produce policy priorities for improving care of diabetes based on the findings of original research into patient and professional opinions of diabetes care in South Tyneside. To judge the feasibility of implementing these priorities as policy. DESIGN: A two round Delphi survey with a panel of 28 inverted question markexperts. inverted question mark In the first round each respondent produced a list of recommendations based on the findings of a report of patients' and professionals' opinions of diabetes care. 20 respondents produced a total of 180 recommendations, reviewed by a monitoring panel to produce a summary list of 28 recommendations. In the second round respondents rated each recommendation on two 5 point Likert scales. SETTING: Mainly Tyneside but also other parts of England. SUBJECTS: 28 healthcare professionals, including patients and patients' representatives. MAIN MEASURES: Voting by experts on how important each recommendation was to improving diabetes care service, and how likely the recommendation was to be implemented in the next five years. RESULTS: There was a high degree of consensus among respondents about recommendations considered important and likely to be implemented--namely, those concerned with improving communications between doctors in hospital and in general practice, and improving communications with patients. Respondents were more pessimistic about the prospects of implementing the recommendations than about their importance. Respondents thought that standards were important for improving care, and half would stop payments to general practice diabetic clinics that did not keep to district standards for diabetes care. For two recommendations a mismatch occurred between the importance of the recommendations and likelihood of implementation. This may reflect the practical problems of implementing recommendations. 18 of the 22 respondents thought that the study was useful in generating recommendations. CONCLUSIONS: The Delphi technique is a useful method for determining priorities for diabetes care and in assessing the feasibility of implementing recommendations.  (+info)

(4/868) Breastfeeding promotion and priority setting in health.

An increase in exclusive breastfeeding prevalence can substantially reduce mortality and morbidity among infants. In this paper, estimates of the costs and impacts of three breastfeeding promotion programmes, implemented through maternity services in Brazil, Honduras and Mexico, are used to develop cost-effectiveness measures and these are compared with other health interventions. The results show that breastfeeding promotion can be one of the most cost-effective health interventions for preventing cases of diarrhoea, preventing deaths from diarrhoea, and gaining disability-adjusted life years (DALYs). The benefits are substantial over a broad range of programme types. Programmes starting with the removal of formula and medications during delivery are likely to derive a high level of impact per unit of net incremental cost. Cost-effectiveness is lower (but still attractive relative to other interventions) if hospitals already have rooming-in and no bottle-feeds; and the cost-effectiveness improves as programmes become well-established. At an annual cost of about 30 to 40 US cents per birth, programmes starting with formula feeding in nurseries and maternity wards can reduce diarrhoea cases for approximately $0.65 to $1.10 per case prevented, diarrhoea deaths for $100 to $200 per death averted, and reduce the burden of disease for approximately $2 to $4 per DALY. Maternity services that have already eliminated formula can, by investing from $2 to $3 per birth, prevent diarrhoea cases and deaths for $3.50 to $6.75 per case, and $550 to $800 per death respectively, with DALYs gained at $12 to $19 each.  (+info)

(5/868) Promoting audit in primary care: roles and relationships of medical audit advisory groups and their managers.

OBJECTIVES: To investigate perceptions of family health service authorities and medical audit advisory groups of advisory groups' involvement in clinical audit and wider quality issues; communication with the authorities; and manager satisfaction. DESIGN: National postal questionnaire survey in 1994. SETTING: All family health services authority districts in England and Wales. SUBJECTS: Chief executives or other responsible authority officers and advisory group chairpersons in each district. MAIN MEASURES: Priorities of advisory group and authority for audit; involvement of advisory group in wider quality issues; communication of information to, and contacts with, the authority and its involvement in planning the future work of the advisory group; and authorities' satisfaction. RESULTS: Both groups' views about audit were similar and broadly consistent with current policy. Advisory group involvement in wider quality issues was extensive, and the majority of both groups thought this appropriate. Much of the information about their activities collected by advisory groups was not passed on to the authority. The most frequent contact between the two groups was the advisory group's annual report, but formal personal contact was the most valued. Most authority respondents thought their views had been recognised in the advisory group's planning of future work; only a small minority were not satisfied with their advisory groups. Dissatisfied respondents received less information from their advisory groups, had less contact with them, and thought they had less input into their plans. There was some evidence that advisory groups in the "dissatisfied districts" were less involved in clinical audit and with their authorities in wider quality issues. CONCLUSIONS: Most advisory groups are developing their activities in clinical audit and have expanded their scope of work. The quality and availability of information about progress with audit is a cause for concern to both groups.  (+info)

(6/868) Developing a plan for primary health care facilities in Soweto, South Africa. Part II: Applying locational criteria.

This article is the second of a two-part series describing the development of a ten-year plan for primary health care facility development in Soweto. The first article concentrated on the political problems and general methodological approach of the project. This second article describes how the technical problem of planning in the context of scanty information was overcome. The reasoning behind the various assumptions and criteria which were used to assist the planning of the location of facilities is explained, as well as the process by which they were applied. The merits and limitations of this planning approach are discussed, and it is suggested that the approach may be useful to other facility planners, particularly in the developing world.  (+info)

(7/868) Gender and equity in health sector reform programmes: a review.

This paper reviews current literature and debates about Health Sector Reform (HSR) in developing countries in the context of its possible implications for women's health and for gender equity. It points out that gender is a significant marker of social and economic vulnerability which is manifest in inequalities of access to health care and in women's and men's different positioning as users and producers of health care. Any analysis of equity must therefore include a consideration of gender issues. Two main approaches to thinking about gender issues in health care are distinguished--a 'women's health' approach, and a 'gender inequality' approach. The framework developed by Cassels (1995), highlighting six main components of HSR, is used to try to pinpoint the implications of HSR in relation to both of these approaches. This review makes no claim to sociological or geographical comprehensiveness. It attempts instead to provide an analysis of the gender and women's health issues most likely to be associated with each of the major elements of HSR and to outline an agenda for further research. It points out that there is a severe paucity of information on the actual impact of HSR from a gender point of view and in relation to substantive forms of vulnerability (e.g. particular categories of women, specific age groups). The use of generic categories, such as 'the poor' or 'very poor', leads to insufficient disaggregation of the impact of changes in the terms on which health care is provided. This suggests the need for more carefully focused data collection and empirical research.  (+info)

(8/868) Opening the debate on DALYs (disability-adjusted life years).

The 1993 World Development Report is proving to be an influential document for the development of the health sector policies in developing countries. One important aspect of the Report concerns its proposals for Disability Adjusted Life Years as a measure of health change and hence effectiveness of interventions. This article comments on the use of such measures in the health policy arena.  (+info)

There is ALWAYS work to be done, you can't play after work because work never ends (studying, job etc.). I know health takes priority over work. But was it meant to be that work takes priority over fun and social life? I feel that is the only way to get everything done properly.

What is an effective but healthy diet for a busy teenager?


I'm 17 years old, 5 foot 4 inches tall, and 175 pounds. I'm really busy with school and extracurricular activities, but I think that it's time to make my health a priority. I understand that fitness/healthy living is a life style, and I'm not asking for a quick fix either. I just want to know: what is a good diet for me?
----------

I think the best weight solution (especially for someone as busy as you!) is this; substitution. Before you reach for a bag of chips or hamburger try a Yoplait Yogurt instead. they are portable and delicious. Try granola, water or natural juice instead of soda, sandwiches instead of pizza. Excersice is great also if ytou have the time. Just whenever you eat something ask yourslef could I be eating something better? Also eat breakfast, it speeds the metabolism! Good luck and be patient!


Please Tell me What You Think Of My Essay Answer?


The question is:

Justify the reason why cardiovascular disease is one of the major national health priority areas in Australia.




Cardiovascular Disease is the number one killer disease, it also causes sever chronic conditions which is treated over a long period of time. With preventative medicine or treatment within a time frame, a patient probably, Could have been prevented, or problems be minimized. This is also one of the highest expenses medically for insurances/government.
Unlike many other chronic medical conditions, Cardiovascular disease is treatable and reversible, even after a long history of disease. Treatment is primarily focused on diet and stress reduction.
The heart needs a steady supply of blood to function effectively. Cardiovascular disease is a general term that describes conditions caused by an interrupted or diminished blood flow through the coronary arteries to the heart muscle. The main cardiovascular diseases are heart attack, angina, stroke and peripheral vascular disease (PVD). As a group, these diseases are the leading cause of death in Australia. In 2001, an estimated 3.2 million Australians, or 17 per cent of the population, suffered from cardiovascular conditions.
Tobacco smoking is considered a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and nearly 40% of all the people who die from smoking die from heart, stroke or blood vessel (cardiovascular) disease. Research shows that both directly inhaled tobacco smoke and passively inhaled tobacco smoke increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
Smoking increases the artery clogging process called atherosclerosis. The narrowing of the arteries limits blood-flow and means that less oxygen is supplied to the body. If atherosclerosis narrows any of the heart's coronary blood vessels, this can lead to angina or a heart attack. Stroke occurs when an artery supplying blood to a part of the brain suddenly becomes blocked. There is no 'low-risk' level of smoking; both 'social' smoking (less than five grams of tobacco per day) and smoking without inhaling increase the risk of heart disease.
Smokers are more likely to develop a cerebral thrombosis (stroke) than non-smokers. About 11% of all stroke deaths are estimated to be smoking related, with the overall relative risk of stroke in smokers being about 1.5 times that of non-smokers. Heavy smokers (consuming 20 or more cigarettes a day) have 2-4 times greater risk of stroke than non-smokers. A recent study showed that passive smoking, as well as active smoking, significantly increased the risk of stroke in men and women.
It's never too late to quit smoking, even if you already have some form of cardiovascular disease. Quitting smoking is the best investment you can make in your health. The sooner you quit the better. Even if you have already experienced some health damage caused by smoking it is still possible to reverse some of the effects. 
Quitting can reduce the chance of having a repeat heart attack or stroke and other forms of heart disease. After quitting, the risk of stroke may return to the level of someone who has never smoked within five years. Fifteen years after quitting, the risk of heart disease is similar to that of a person who has never smoked.

They have prescribed therapy. He is a mechanic. He and I are both worried that this will prohibit him from doing his job. My husband's health is priority but he defines himself by the work that he does. He has refused to even consider the option of surgery if it is needed. Anyone had to go through this? How has it affected your life?
----------

The term degenerative disk is actually somewhat of a misnomer. People with degenerative disk have low back pain, and surprisingly instead of it getting worse it actually "gets better" over time. It's also not a disease, it has to do with pain coming from a damaged disk. I don't think this would affect much but he may be limited to what he can do depending on the severity of the pain. There may be things to compromise, but nothing too out there.

Get a good nights sleep, eat healthy, and exercise.  

It is easiest to get a good night sleep by going to bed at about the same time every night, and waking up at about the same time every morning.  Sleeping pills are not good if you want a good sleep, because they don't push you into your REM sleep and you often wake up groggy.

Eat healthy - no fast foods, no fried foods, no twinkies, stay away from hydrogenated oils and partially hydrogenated oils.  There are many cook-books that can help you with daily healthy foods.  Once you eat healthy for a few weeks, its much easier after that because many people become addicted to the fats and oils and such that come from unhealthy foods.  

Exercise - I try to exercise every day.  I understand some days your just tired and stressed and it's hard to get to the gym, but try and keep those days at a minimum.  There are many gym's like Snap Fitness or Anytime fitness that your health insurance will cover most of the cost as long as you go a certain amount of times per month.

Swimming is the best exercise to do without doing hard to your body at all.  Running and biking can be very bad on the knees/hips.  

Make sure to always stretch after excising.  whether your running/swimming/biking/weight lifting, ALWAYS Stretch.  Many people do not stretch and 80 % of what they just exercised will be lost.


Any there any precautions we should take before we let him hold the baby?


I am going to have a baby any day now and have been making out the who to call after the baby is born list. On the list is my uncle who is HIV+ and I've never really even thought twice about it until I went to right his name on the list. I just don't know if their are any risks for him or the baby. I don't want to offend him by asking but I have to make sure the baby's health is priority. What would you recommend we do?
----------

It's fine- you can't catch HIV from casual contact with non-body fluid areas like mucus membranes. Him being fully clothed, holding a baby that is also wrapped/clothed poses no risk.

It is ok to hug someone with HIV. It's ok for him to hold the baby. 

I understand your concern, and if it makes you feel better just ask you doctor.

What types of health problems are needed to qualify to have gastric bypass surgery? Do you only qualify if you have severe health problems caused by this or could you qualify if you have smaller health problems like knee arthritis & breathing problems? Most of my family is obese and have heart disease, sleep apnea. Would they take that into consideration? My sister had gastric bypass surgery with a starting weight at 208 and is down to 128. I don't think she had any medical problems due to her obesity.

Usually you have to have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 40 or more to qualify for gastric bypass. If you have a BMI of over 35, sometimes you can qualify if you have significant co-morbidities such as diabetes or sleep apnea. First and foremost, "they" look at how morbid obesity is affecting you, however, your family history may be taken into account, if close relatives are morbidly obese and have health problems relating to obesity.
