'Workplace wellness' is any workplace health promotion activity or organizational policy designed to support healthy behavior in the workplace and to improve health outcomes. With more attention focused on nutrition and overall health, research is beginning to show a link between the nutrition and exercise of people in the workforce and how it affects overall productivity. Even though wellness programs require investments up front, large companies should subsidize these programs because they will save companies money in the long run, improve overall workforce productivity, and enhance employee morale. Department of Health and Human Services report http://aspe.hhs.gov/health/prevention/ revealed that at worksites with exercise programs as components of their wellness programs, healthcare costs decreased from 20 to 55%, short-term sick leave was lowered from 38 to 32%, and productivity increased from 50 to 52%. ...

(1/7064) Latino children's health and the family-community health promotion model.

A majority of Latino children in the US live in poverty. However, unlike other poor children, Latino children do not seem to have a consistent association between poverty and poor health. Instead, many poor Latino children have unexpectedly good health outcomes. This has been labeled an epidemiologic paradox. This paper proposes a new model of health, the family-community health promotion model, to account for this paradox. The family-community health promotion model emphasizes the family-community milieu of the child, in contrast to traditional models of health. In addition, the family-community model expands the outcome measures from physical health to functional health status, and underscores the contribution of cultural factors to functional health outcomes. In this paper, we applied the family-community health promotion model to four health outcomes: low birthweight, infant mortality, chronic and acute illness, and perceived health status. The implications of this model for research and policy are discussed.  (+info)

(3/7064) Risky single-occasion drinking amongst young people--definition, correlates, policy, and intervention: a broad overview of research findings.

Risky single-occasion drinking (RSOD) has dire consequences upon health and well-being including unplanned pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV/AIDS, crime, and car accidents. The prevalence of RSOD among young people is alarming. Despite this, as yet, a review of existing literature on RSOD amongst young people is lacking. This article will provide an overview of this area of research focusing on the definition of RSOD, its prevalence among young people, health and behavioural effects of RSOD, the perceived risk of RSOD among young people, and interventions to reduce RSOD in young people. In addition, recommendations are made for health educators interested in reducing the incidence of RSOD in young people.  (+info)

(4/7064) Restructuring the primary health care services and changing profile of family physicians in Turkey.

A new health-reform process has been initiated by Ministry of Health in Turkey. The aim of that reform is to improve the health status of the Turkish population and to provide health care to all citizens in an efficient and equitable manner. The restructuring of the current health system will allow more funds to be allocated to primary and preventive care and will create a managed market for secondary and tertiary care. In this article, we review the current and proposed primary care services models and the role of family physicians therein.  (+info)

(5/7064) Dietary isoflavones: biological effects and relevance to human health.

Substantial evidence indicates that diets high in plant-based foods may explain the epidemiologic variance of many hormone-dependent diseases that are a major cause of mortality and morbidity in Western populations. There is now an increased awareness that plants contain many phytoprotectants. Lignans and isoflavones represent two of the main classes of phytoestrogens of current interest in clinical nutrition. Although ubiquitous in their occurrence in the plant kingdom, these bioactive nonnutrients are found in particularly high concentrations in flaxseeds and soybeans and have been found to have a wide range of hormonal and nonhormonal activities that serve to provide plausible mechanisms for the potential health benefits of diets rich in phytoestrogens. Data from animal and in vitro studies provide convincing evidence for the potential of phytoestrogens in influencing hormone-dependent states; although the clinical application of diets rich in these estrogen mimics is in its infancy, data from preliminary studies suggest beneficial effects of importance to health. This review focuses on the more recent studies pertinent to this field and includes, where appropriate, the landmark and historical literature that has led to the exponential increase in interest in phytoestrogens from a clinical nutrition perspective.  (+info)

(6/7064) 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)

(7/7064) Do tailored behavior change messages enhance the effectiveness of health risk appraisal? Results from a randomized trial.

Health risk appraisal (HRA) remains one of the most widely used health promotion tools despite only equivocal evidence for its effectiveness. Theories of behavior change predict conventional HRA's ineffectiveness because risk information alone is seldom sufficient to change complex behaviors. In this study, a randomized trial compared the effects of feedback from an enhanced HRA with a typical HRA and a control group among adult patients from eight family medicine practices. The enhanced HRA assessed behavior-specific psychosocial factors and provided patients with computer-generated, individually-tailored behavior change information in addition to typical HRA risk feedback. Changes in seven behaviors were assessed at a 6 month follow-up. Overall, patients receiving enhanced HRA feedback were 18% more likely to change at least one risk behavior than were patients receiving typical HRA feedback or no feedback (OR = 1.18, 95% CI = 1.00, 1.39). The enhanced HRA feedback appeared to promote changes in cholesterol screening, dietary fat consumption and physical activity, but not in smoking, seat belt use, mammography and Pap smears. We conclude that the addition of theory-based, individually-tailored behavior change information may improve the effectiveness of HRA.  (+info)

(8/7064) Implementing a nationwide insecticide-impregnated bednet programme in The Gambia.

Earlier studies in The Gambia suggested that the use of impregnated bednets might prove to be a useful malaria control strategy. Based on the results of these studies, in 1992 the Government of The Gambia was encouraged to initiate a National Impregnated Bednet Programme (NIBP) as part of the National Malaria Control Programme Strategy. This paper describes the implementation process/procedure of the NIBP. Evaluation results showed that, overall, 83% of the bednets surveyed has been impregnated, and 77% of children under the age of five years and 78% of women of childbearing age were reported to be sleeping under impregnated bednets.  (+info)

Canada use health promotion messages to increase awareness in the youth about the dangers of illicit drug use?


  • How and Why? Ran out of room, here is the question... Why and how does Canada use health promotion messages to increase awareness in young adults about the dangers of illicit drug use?
  • Not only a Canada but also many countries are trying to increase awareness in the youth about the dangers of illicit drug use? The govt..will go with print media,electronic media they will try to explain the people in different ways about side effects of illicit drugs.If they want they call the celebrities to increase awareness in the youth about the dangers of illicit drug use?


what are the barriers to sexual health promotions in a multicultural society such as britain?


  • i am writing a project on the barriers to sexual health promotion in britain. please i need your views to this question.
  • I'd say the number one barrier, overall, is culture itself. In freewheeling Wester societies like Great Britain and, to a lesser extend, the United States, we have a certain amount of freedom to discuss sexual health issues. However we can't assume the same about different cultures. In the United States, for example, Hispanic populations typically receive some of the worst sexual health care in the country because of culture beliefs, coupled with poverty. If you grow up with the idea that sexual health issues aren't important, especially if you grow up in a conservative environment that discourages sex as well as frank discussions about sex and sexual health, then you're bound to be less informed, overall, once you reach sexual maturity. Couple this conservative atmosphere with raging hormones and you've got a recipe for a sexual health public issues: teen pregnancy, STI's, and more. In America, our greatest barrier to sexual health information is our conservative culture. Our president promotes abstinence-only sex education in schools, which has actually been shown to have no negative effect on teen pregnancy rates or rates of STI's, not because he feels these programs are working, but because of the social and moral obligation to uphold the ideas of hard-line Christian groups. Since our health care in America is not free and open to the public, poverty is also a major barrier to sexual health access. In a country like Great Britain, with far better access to health care and especially sexual health care, the greatest barrier would be individual cultural groups. Even though Britain is restrictive about the number of immigrants they allow, those immigrants are increasingly from conservative Muslim backgrounds, a religion that is a notorious critic of sexual health issues.


Things to include in a smoking health promotion?


  • I'm doing a health promotion project on smoking between the ages of 16 and 19, but im unsure what type of things i should include to make it interesting and actual deliver a message across to people. By things i mean meterials which i can use.
  • Many years ago when I was at school, we were shown a section of a man's lung who had died as a result of smoking. It was dreadful. Lung Cancer results in a long and painful death. My father in law died from smoking 50 untipped cigaretttes a day. One of the saddest things about the kids in Jamie's Dream School is how many of them appear to be addicted to smoking. Good luck in putting over the message!


Does anyone know of a workplace health promotion training?


  • Hello. I'm a health professional and am looking for training in the area of developing workplace health promotion programs. The program does not have to offer college credits or continuing education credits. I am willing to travel anywhere in the U.S. and also to Canada and the U.K. for a short (1-2 weeks) training session. I appreciate any help you can offer.
  • I found this 17th Annual Art & Science of Health Promotion Conference Core Conference March 28-31, 2007 Intensive Training Seminars March 26-27,and March 31 - April 1, 2007 Moscone Center| San Francisco, CA Theconference theme is “Integrating Health Promotion into All Sectors of Society.” Read more about the theme below. "Integrating Health Promotion into all Sectors of Society" Workplace health promotion programs have established a decades-long track record of improving health, moderating medical care cost increases, reducing absenteeism and enhancing morale. Continually rising medical costs and increasingly effective programming have stimulated historic growth in workplace based health promotion. This growth is likely to continue at least through the end of the decade, but the greatest growth opportunities for health promotion are probably outside the workplace and will be found in schools, clinics, hospitals, families, health clubs and other parts of the community. These sectors represent excellent growth opportunities from a business perspective, but the public health perspective is even more exciting. If we can integrate health promotion concepts into each of these sectors, we will come close to creating a living environment that envelops people in health promotion messages and helps each of us maintain long-term healthy lifestyles. Our 2007 conference will explore how to best reach each of these sectors. Sessions will focus on financial analysis, integrating health promotion into society, advocacy and practice skills CC


What are the similarities and differences between the field or approach of community health and public health?


  • Also, how would the two approaches be similar or different with regard to preventing underage drinking? I know that public health concerns the health of everyone and involves activities such as surveillance, monitoring and enforcement of health laws and policies to ensure the health of the population and community health is concerned with a certain geographic location or characteristic of the population. Community health is usually involved with more health promotion, health education and health services stuff. However, I'm not quite sure how the two fields or approaches would address preventing underage drinking. If you have any comments or advice, it would be much appreciated. Thank you!
  • Although both public health and law enforcement protect the public, the approach and nature of the work performed in the two disciplines are quite different. The similarities and differences in public health and law enforcement investigations have to be understood and coordinated so that both can be most effective ( Table ). Public health investigations generally take an inductive approach. Persons are interviewed, data are collected, hypotheses are developed to explain transmission, and epidemiological and laboratory studies are conducted to test these hypotheses. If the studies confirm the hypothesis, prevention and control strategies are developed, implemented, and evaluated. All this work is held to the standard of scientific peer review, generally through presentation of data at scientific meetings and publication in a scientific journal.


Where can I find a reliable health article online?


  • My health teacher gave us an assignment where we have to find an article online about health promotion or disease prevention. I don't know where I can look for this, for I'm afraid of picking some random website and ending up giving a false report in front of my class. Do you know of any reliable medical websites I can turn to? One where doctors or other medical experts post information about the latest diseases or health issues? I'm not asking for the article itself. Just a general website or medical company would be helpful. I can do the rest myself like a responsible student.
  • LoL....he didn't give you a list??? i got a list.... ~www.cdc.gov ~www.healthfinder.gov ~www.intellihealth.com ~www.mayohealth.org ~www.medscape.com ~www.mwsearch.com ~www.emedicine.com ~webMD.com You can also look on the school site, go to MHS Library.

Nurses, i need help with health promotion for Rheumatoid Arthritis patients?


  • I'm confused with health education for RA patients with health promotion for Ra patients. Can anyone gives me examples on health promotion for Ra patients? (i) Is comforting the patient from excruciating pain consider as health promotion? (ii) giving seminar about the disease itself to the community that talks about the disease,how it progress, what are the signs and symptoms is also consider as health promotion? (iii) correct me if I'm wrong, health education is to educate the patient about how the disease process, how to manage it etc and health promotion is to promote the health status of the patient itself that includes comforting them, giving awareness etc.
  • your right... education is very important. For a patient with RA the number one thing is pain control, like teach other techniques than drugs like warm packs/shower, massage, distraction like music or tv. Another one would be to educate them on proper ROM exercises to maintain and improve joint functions. Also inform them on protectin the joint and modifying daily tasks to cope with ADLs. And the number one health promotion would be to provide the community with education on ways to identify symptoms of RA to promote early diagnosis and tx.
