*  Talk On Health Services
... Selected Works of Mao Tse-tung Talk On Health Services January 24, 1964. China s health service emulates that of the Soviet Union, and I cannot completely accept what health doctors say. I have a gentlemen s agreement with my doctor. When I have a fever I will call you, and when I do not have one I will not bother you and you will not bother me. I said that if I did not have to call on him for an entire year, that would be testimony of his great merit. If I had to bother him every month, this would be proof that he had failed in his work. I only follow half of what the doctor says and expect him to follow me in the other-half. If we abide by everything the doctor says sickness will multiply and life will be impossible. I have never before heard of so much high blood pressure and liver infections. If a person doesn t exercise but only eats well, dresses well, lives comfortably, and drives wherever he goes, he will be beset with a lot of illnesses. Excessive attention to food, ...

ABSTRACT Liaison mental health services LMHS developed originally to address the mental health needs of people with physical illnesses in general hospitals and more recently to work also with people with mental health problems presenting at non-mental health services. The purpose of the present paper was to review empirical research on the structure, process and outcome of liaison mental health services using systematic review methods. While there is an extensive international literature on liaison mental health services, Callaghan et al., in their review of 17 evaluative studies of these services, point out that most investigations examine the structure and process of liaison work, with little attention paid to outcome variables such as compliance with treatment recommendations and ...

SAMHSA Administrator: Shift focus of national mental health dialogue from blame to social inclusion October 26, 2011 Written by Shannon Eliot. In fact, surveys show that 30 percent of individuals would think less of a person who has an addiction, and 20 percent would think less of a person who is in recovery from an addiction, according to Hyde.

This blame then leads to misunderstandings about mental health and substance abuse, which are manifested in prejudice, discrimination, and damaging media portrayals of help centers, according to Hyde. “We also hear institutional blame with discussions around welfare systems driven by substance abuse and mental illness issues. "It needs to be based on social inclusion, healthier ...

... By Mayo Clinic Staff. These unhealthy coping strategies may be clues that you have male depression. When depression occurs in men, it may be masked by unhealthy coping behavior. But male depression usually gets better with treatment. Depression signs and symptoms can differ in men and women. Men also tend to use different coping skills both healthy and unhealthy than women do. Because these behaviors could be signs of or might overlap with other mental health issues, professional help is the key to an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

*  Feature Story: Being A Man About It: Researcher examines why males underuse mental health services
What we ve found is that traditional notions of masculinity and traditional male gender roles can be quite harmful to men, says Rochlen. Gender studies, as they relate to physical and mental health, are increasingly showing that men and women handle mental and emotional distress very differently and certainly take different approaches to getting help. Although many more men than women commit suicide, for example, says Rochlen, we re still seeing that most patients who are getting mental health services are women. Laura Ebady, a therapist at the campus Counseling and Mental Health Center, can attest to the fact that males often seek professional help with much reluctance and only as a last resort. A lot of these men do not realize they re depressed, says Ebady. Researchers using this tool have found that men with gender role conflict tend to have higher rates of depression and anxiety, lower self-esteem, heightened stress levels, higher rates of substance and alcohol abuse, ...

(1/1744) The place of medicine in the American prison: ethical issues in the treatment of offenders.

In Britain doctors and others concerned with the treatment of offenders in prison may consult the Butler Report (see Focus, pp 157) and specialist journals, but these sources are concerned with the system in Britain only. In America the situation is different, both in organization and in certain attitudes. Dr Peter L Sissons has therefore provided a companion article to that of Dr Paul Bowden (page 163) describing the various medical issues in prisons. The main difference between the treatment of offenders in prisons in America and in Britain lies in the nature of the federal system which means that each state may operate a different system in a variety of prisons and prison medical services are as various. Nationally, the prison systems are 'structured to treat and cure the offender'. Therefore it follows that the prison medical officer is only one of the professionals concerned with this 'cure' of the offender. This principle also applies to any form of research: medical research in prisons is part of a programme which covers a wide field of social and judicial research. The prison medical officer (where there is one) has of course to look after sick prisoners, and the American idea of 'cure' is also expressed in the need for more corrective surgery where, for example, it is necessary to remove physical impediments to social rehabilitation. But a doctor is only found on the staff of those institutions which are large: in the smaller prisons there may be only first-aid facilities, and no specially appointed doctor in the community. Moreover medicines are often dispensed by medical auxiliaries who are sometimes prisoners themselves. Finally, in America prisoners are regularly invited to volunteer as subjects for medical and social research for which they are paid. In short, although it is hoped to 'cure' a prisoner he is a criminal first and a patient second.  (+info)

(2/1744) Use of out-of-plan services by Medicare members of HIP.

Use of out-of-plan services in 1972 by Medicare members of the Health Insurance Plan of Greater New York (HIP) is examined in terms of the demographic and enrollment characteristics of out-of-plan users, types of services received outside the plan, and the relationship of out-of-plan to in-plan use. Users of services outside the plan tended to be more seriously ill and more frequently hospitalized than those receiving all of their services within the plan. The costs to the SSA of providing medical care to HIP enrollees are compared with analogous costs for non-HIP beneficiaries, and the implications for the organization and financing of health services for the aged are discussed.  (+info)

(3/1744) Why do patients seek family physicians' services for cold symptoms?

OBJECTIVE: To examine the frequency of presentation to family physicians' offices for cold symptoms, the reasons for presentation, and the duration of symptoms before presentation. DESIGN: Prospective cross-sectional survey. PARTICIPANTS: One hundred consecutive patient encounters in each of 15 family practices from January 27 to February 3, 1994, involving both academic and non-academic family physicians in the London region. Data were collected prospectively using a checklist attached to each chart. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Proportion of patients presenting with cold symptoms, reasons for presentation, number of days patients had had symptoms, billing code. RESULTS: A total of 1421 checklists were analyzed, 822 from academic practices and 599 from community practices. Proportion of presentations for cold symptoms was 14.8%, but visits coded as common cold represented 5.7%. Median number of days patients waited before presentation was 7.0; older patients tended to wait longer. Many patients were worried about developing complications (51.0%) or were fed up with their symptoms (31.9%). Most patients were between the ages of 20 and 64 (44.6%), and 57.6% of all patients had developed complications requiring treatment. CONCLUSIONS: The proportion of visits coded as common cold was lower than Ontario averages. Most patients had complications rather than simple colds and had managed their symptoms on their own for a fairly long time.  (+info)

(4/1744) Record linkage as a research tool for office-based medical care.

OBJECTIVE: To explore the feasibility of linking records to study health services and health outcomes for primary care patients. DESIGN: A cohort of patients from the Family Medicine Centre at Mount Sinai Hospital was assembled from the clinic's billing records. Their health numbers were linked to the Ontario Hospital Discharge Database. The pattern of hospital admission rates was investigated using International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes for primary discharge diagnosis. A pilot case-control study of risk factor management for stroke was nested in the cohort. SETTING: Family medicine clinic based in a teaching hospital. PARTICIPANTS: A cohort of 19,654 Family Medicine Centre patients seen at least once since 1991. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Admission rates by age, sex, and diagnosis. Numbers of admissions for individual patients, time to readmission, and length of stay. Odds ratios for admission for cerebrovascular disease. RESULTS: The 19,654 patients in the cohort had 14,299 discharges from Ontario hospitals in the 4 years from 1992 to 1995, including 3832 discharges following childbirth. Some patients had many discharges: 4816 people accounted for the 10,467 admissions excluding childbirth. Excluding transfers between institutions, there were 4975 readmissions to hospital during the 4 years, 1392 (28%) of them within 28 days of previous discharge. Admissions for mental disorders accounted for the greatest number of days in hospital. The pilot study of risk factor management suggested that acetylsalicylic acid therapy might not be effective for elderly primary care patients with atrial fibrillation and that calcium channel blocker therapy might be less effective than other therapies for preventing cerebrovascular disease in hypertensive primary care patients. CONCLUSIONS: Record linkage combined with data collection by chart review or interview is a useful method for studying the effectiveness of medical care in Canada and might suggest interesting hypotheses for further investigation.  (+info)

(5/1744) Stress and morale in general practice: a comparison of two health care systems.

BACKGROUND: Poor morale and high levels of stress among general practitioners (GPs) are causing concern. Little research has previously been carried out to study possible differences in morale and stress between GPs working in two different but geographically similar health care systems. AIM: To compare perceived levels of stress and morale between GPs working in two different health care systems--one having a state monopoly (Northern Ireland) and the other having mixed private and state funding (Republic of Ireland)--and to look for factors that might help explain any differences in stress levels and morale between the two systems. METHOD: Anonymous and confidential questionnaires were sent to all 986 National Health Service (NHS) GPs in Northern Ireland (NI) and a random sample of 900 GPs in the Republic of Ireland (ROI). A common set of core questions on demographic details, partners and work patterns, perceived levels of stress and morale, safety, violence, and complaints were asked. RESULTS: Response rates were high in both areas: 91% in NI and 78% in the ROI. GPs in NI had significantly higher stress levels and significantly lower levels of morale than GPs in the ROI. The NI sample expect matters to get worse over the following year. Doctors in the ROI were more likely to be single handed and to work from two sites. Also, more GPs in ROI had fears for their safety and had been the subject of physical violence, but fewer had received complaints and medico-legal actions than in NI. CONCLUSIONS: A significant proportion of both groups of doctors report feeling highly stressed but GPs in NI appear more unhappy and have a poorer outlook for the future. It is suggested that the structure, management, and expectations of the NHS have taken a severe toll on its GPs, whereas a system in which doctors have less practice support but more control is good for morale.  (+info)

(6/1744) What parents think of fever.

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to assess knowledge, perception and management of fever by parents. METHODS: We conducted a questionnaire survey among 392 parents of children attending locally a paediatric clinic at The Royal Oldham Hospital. The main outcome measures were answers to questions covering a variety of aspects of the knowledge, perception and management of fever by parents. RESULTS: Almost half the parents used a liquid crystal forehead thermometer. Most could not use a glass thermometer. Thirty per cent did not know normal body temperature and would have treated children with a temperature below 38 degrees C. Sixty-four per cent treated fever with both paracetamol and tepid sponging. Most parents awakened children at night for antipyretics. Eighty-one per cent thought that untreated fever was most likely to cause fits or brain damage and 7% thought it could cause death. CONCLUSION: Parents perceive fever as being dangerous. They have a poor knowledge and measure it inaccurately. Needless consultations and hospital admissions could be avoided by a change in perception.  (+info)

(7/1744) Mental health/medical care cost offsets: opportunities for managed care.

Health services researchers have long observed that outpatient mental health treatment sometimes leads to a reduction in unnecessary or excessive general medical care expenditures. Such reductions, or cost offsets, have been found following mental health treatment of distressed elderly medical inpatients, some patients as they develop major medical illnesses, primary care outpatients with multiple unexplained somatic complaints, and nonelderly adults with alcoholism. In this paper we argue that managed care has an opportunity to capture these medical care cost savings by training utilization managers to make mental health services more accessible to patients whose excessive use of medical care is related to psychological factors. For financial reasons, such policies are most likely to develop within health care plans that integrate the financing and management of mental health and medical/surgical benefits.  (+info)

(8/1744) Incidence, outcomes, and cost of foot ulcers in patients with diabetes.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence of foot ulcers in a large cohort of patients with diabetes, the risk of developing serious complications after diagnosis, and the attributable cost of care compared with that in patients without foot ulcers. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Retrospective cohort study of patients with diabetes in a large staff-model health maintenance organization from 1993 to 1995. Patients with diabetes were identified by algorithm using administrative, laboratory, and pharmacy records. The data were used to calculate incidence of foot ulcers, risk of osteomyelitis, amputation, and death after diagnosis of foot ulcer, and attributable costs in foot ulcer patients compared with patients without foot ulcers. RESULTS: Among 8,905 patients identified with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, 514 developed a foot ulcer over 3 years of observation (cumulative incidence 5.8%). On or after the time of diagnosis, 77 (15%) patients developed osteomyelitis and 80 (15.6%) required amputation. Survival at 3 years was 72% for the foot ulcer patients versus 87% for a group of age- and sex-matched diabetic patients without foot ulcers (P < 0.001). The attributable cost for a 40- to 65-year-old male with a new foot ulcer was $27,987 for the 2 years after diagnosis. CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of foot ulcers in this cohort of patients with diabetes was nearly 2.0% per year. For those who developed ulcers, morbidity, mortality, and excess care costs were substantial compared with those for patients without foot ulcers. The results appear to support the value of foot-ulcer prevention programs for patients with diabetes.  (+info)

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. Harrald


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


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.


Is health services administration in healthcare or business?


  • Is health services administration in healthcare or business? Which field is it in? Im going to do my bachelors in Health Services Administration. But the problem is I dont know what to do after. I was thinking getting a joint degree in MHSA/MBA or get a masters in public health with a specilization in health policy/ management. Which degree would be best? And as for my title would the bachelors major be considered in healthcare or business? Is the hiring outlook good?
  • Good Question. http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos014.htm It's Health Care Management and it requires the knowledge of business and health care administration. I think it is in it's own category.


Who are the institutions here in Columbus, Texas that provide mental health services?


  • I don't want to think that I am schizophrenic or I suffer from bipolar disorder but I don't understand myself. Sometimes I feel so happy and then after a while, I feel so depressed. I know my situation isn't common but I think I need medication. Although people may laugh at me or something, I believe I have to be honest about my condition. I hope my depression isn't serious... Please tell me the the institutions here in Columbus that give mental health services. Thank you very much.
  • Don't feel so bad about it. The fact that you recognize that you have a problem means that you're sane! It's okay to consult an expert to know what is happening to you. Below are the sources that I think can help you find a good institution. You can also browse the yellow pages or ask for the help of your friends to make your burden lighter. 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.

Are there any free mental health services available?


  • I'm majorly bipolar and have no insurance nor do I make enough money to afford treatment. Are there any types of mental health services available for low income families? I've got to do something before this illness takes a turn for the worse.
  • It completely depends on where you live, but most major counties and cities within the United States have mental health facilities funded by the local governments that will see people either for free or at a highly reduced rate. Often times they will also provide any medication you may need as part of your treatment. These do tend to be a little difficult to get into sometimes do to the overwhelming need for these services, and you may be placed on a waiting list, but some even have referral suggestions to other free services in your area while you wait to move up on the list. Try searching the name of your town on the net and add the terms county mental health offices to your search.
