*  Natural Disaster Recovery Planning
... Natural Disaster. Disaster Recovery Special Needs. When reacting to a disaster, be aware that children, disabled family members, and pets will all most likely slow down your evacuation or preparation steps. Children Your children need to understand the possible dangers of natural disasters without living in fear of them. Explain potential dangers as things that we can not prevent but that we can be ready for. When you have your family emergency plan devised, practice it with all family members. Have children memorize their name, address, and phone number. Make your child part of the recovery process so they feel somewhat in control of their situation. Common fears of children preparing for a disaster or going through one are: someone will die or be injured they will be left all alone they will be separated from family members the disaster will come back or happen again. will require extra time to evacuate. Be sure to incorporate their needs into your disaster recovery planning. Pets Red Cross disaster sh...

*  Katrina: The Ultimate Testing Ground for Disaster Recovery
... So a month before Hurricane Katrina roared through the Gulf Coast, demolishing New Orleans and causing unprecedented levels of damage to portions of Mississippi and Alabama, a special task force at Alfa chose to invest in a mobile recovery unit from Agility Recovery Solutions, of Charlotte, N.C. Once Alfa declared a company emergency during the hurricane, Agility sent a 24-by-68-foot, double-size mobile unit to a location in Mobile, Ala. In Houston to escape Katrina's destruction, Mike Roppolo, director of health services for the Newman School, in New Orleans, said the task of restoring the popular city is daunting. "It's going to take more than several months to rebuild that city and get it back to some form of what we knew to be New Orleans," Roppolo said. For many people charged with running IT systems, Katrina proved the ultimate testing ground for disaster recovery and business continuity plans. Tim Babco, senior director of IT for SCP Pool Corp., in Covington, La., said his company designed a core ...

... Hari Srinivas. Case Study Series E-023. June 2015. At 0058 GMT on 26 December 2004, a massive earthquake of magnitude 9.0 struck the coastal area off northern Sumatra in Indonesia. A number of after shocks also occurred, some of magnitude 7.1. These earthquakes triggered tsunamis that affected Indonesia and neighbouring countries in Asia including India, Malaysia, Maldives, Sri Lanka, and Thailand and the east coasts of Africa including Somalia and Yemen, causing serious damage to the coastal areas and small islands. While the final death toll will never be known, an estimated 250,000 persons have perished in the tsunami, majority of them women and children. Millions more have been displaced or rendered homeless. The damage from the tsunami was particularly severe as an increasingly percentage of the population, and many key cities and towns, lie within 50 km of the ocean edge. The international response mounted to provide rescue and relief to the affected communities was unprecedented in its volume and ...

(1/2070) Conditions required for a law on active voluntary euthanasia: a survey of nurses' opinions in the Australian Capital Territory.

OBJECTIVES: To ascertain which conditions nurses believe should be in a law allowing active voluntary euthanasia (AVE). DESIGN: Survey questionnaire posted to registered nurses (RNs). SETTING: Australian Capital Territory (ACT) at the end of 1996, when active voluntary euthanasia was legal in the Northern Territory. SURVEY SAMPLE: A random sample of 2,000 RNs, representing 54 per cent of the RN population in the ACT. MAIN MEASURES: Two methods were used to look at nurses' opinions. The first involved four vignettes which varied in terms of critical characteristics of each patient who was requesting help to die. The respondents were asked if the law should be changed to allow any of these requests. There was also a checklist of conditions, most of which have commonly been included in Australian proposed laws on AVE. The respondents chose those which they believed should apply in a law on AVE. RESULTS: The response rate was 61%. Support for a change in the law to allow AVE was 38% for a young man with AIDS, 39% for an elderly man with early stage Alzheimer's disease, 44% for a young woman who had become quadriplegic and 71% for a middle-aged woman with metastases from breast cancer. The conditions most strongly supported in any future AVE law were: "second doctor's opinion", "cooling off period", "unbearable protracted suffering", "patient fully informed about illness and treatment" and "terminally ill". There was only minority support for "not suffering from treatable depression", "administer the fatal dose themselves" and "over a certain age". CONCLUSION: Given the lack of support for some conditions included in proposed AVE laws, there needs to be further debate about the conditions required in any future AVE bills.  (+info)

(2/2070) How physician executives and clinicians perceive ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals.

OBJECTIVES: To compare the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals and the attributes that might lead to the existence of these ethical issues. DESIGN: Self-completion questionnaire administered from February to July 1997. SETTING: Different health regions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. PARTICIPANTS: Random sample of 457 physicians (317 clinicians and 140 physician executives) from several hospitals in various regions across the kingdom. RESULTS: There were statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding the existence of various ethical issues in their hospitals. The vast majority of physician executives did not perceive that seven of the eight issues addressed by the study were ethical concerns in their hospitals. However, the majority of the clinicians perceived that six of the same eight issues were ethical considerations in their hospitals. Statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians were observed in only three out of eight attributes that might possibly lead to the existence of ethical issues. The most significant attribute that was perceived to result in ethical issues was that of hospitals having a multinational staff. CONCLUSION: The study calls for the formulation of a code of ethics that will address specifically the physicians who work in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As a more immediate initiative, it is recommended that seminars and workshops be conducted to provide physicians with an opportunity to discuss the ethical dilemmas they face in their medical practice.  (+info)

(3/2070) Toward sensitive practice: issues for physical therapists working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The high rates of prevalence of childhood sexual abuse in the United States and Canada suggest that physical therapists work, often unknowingly, with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The purposes of this qualitative study were to explore the reactions of adult female survivors of childhood sexual abuse to physical therapy and to listen to their ideas about how practitioners could be more sensitive to their needs. The dynamics and long-term sequelae of childhood sexual abuse, as currently understood by mental health researchers and as described by the participants, are summarized to provide a context for the findings of this study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Twenty-seven female survivors (aged 19-62 years) participated in semistructured interviews in which they described their reactions to physical therapy. RESULTS: Survivors' reactions to physical therapy, termed "long-term sequelae of abuse that detract from feeling safe in physical therapy," are reported. Participant-identified suggestions that could contribute to the sense of safety are shared. CONCLUSIONS AND DISCUSSION: Although the physical therapist cannot change the survivor's history, an appreciation of issues associated with child sexual abuse theoretically can increase clinicians' understanding of survivors' reactions during treatment. We believe that attention by the physical therapist to the client's sense of safety throughout treatment can maximize the benefits of the physical therapy experience for the client who is a survivor.  (+info)

(4/2070) Sexual problems: a study of the prevalence and need for health care in the general population.

BACKGROUND: There has been little research carried out on the prevalence and types of sexual dysfunction in the general population, although the indications are that such problems are relatively common. Most common sexual problems are potentially treatable. However GPs have estimated the prevalence of sexual problems to be far lower than survey estimates. OBJECTIVE: To provide an estimate of the prevalence of sexual problems in the general population, and assess the use of and need for professional help for such problems. METHODS: We used an anonymous postal questionnaire survey. The study was set in four general practices in England*, and the study population was a stratified random sample of the adult general population (n = 4000). The subjects were 789 men and 979 women who responded to the questionnaire. The main outcome measures were the presence and type of current sexual problems in men and women, and the provision and use of treatments for sexual problems. RESULTS: A response rate of 44% was obtained. The median age of the responders was 50 years. A third of men (34%) and two-fifths of women (41 %) reported having a current sexual problem. The most common problems were erectile dysfunction (n = 170) and premature ejaculation (n = 88) in men; in women the most widely reported problems were vaginal dryness (n = 186) and infrequent orgasm (n = 166). In men, the proportion of responders reporting sexual problems increased with age, but there was no similar trend in women. Of those responders who reported a sexual problem, 52% said that they would like to receive professional help for this problem, but only one in ten of these people (n = 50) had received such help. CONCLUSION: Among responders there was a high level of reported sexual problems. The most frequently reported problems (vaginal dryness, erectile problems) may be amenable to physical treatment in practice, and yet few had sought or received help. However, many said that they would like to receive help. These figures suggest that there may be an important burden of potentially reversible sexual problems in the general population.  (+info)

(5/2070) House calls in Lebanon: reflections on personal experience.

BACKGROUND: Home health services play an important role in decreasing hospital admissions and physicians' medical house calls play an integral role in home health services. There is no national survey of physicians' house call practice in the Lebanon. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to provide some information about house call practice in the Lebanon. METHOD: Data on patients examined during house call visits between 1 January and the end of December 1995 were reviewed. RESULTS: During this period, 137 patients were seen at their home. Eighty-four patients (62%) were female and 53 patients (38%) were male. Ages ranged from 1 to 85 years. The number of cases seen in 1 month averaged 11. The diagnosis differed according to the age group of patients examined. Most of the house call visits occurred between 6.30 p.m. to 12.00 p.m. (47%). Fifteen patients (11%) were admitted to the hospital. CONCLUSION: The rate of cases per month was similar to those reported elsewhere. Physicians might feel reluctant to conduct house calls out of hours. Our study revealed that the majority of patients were seen between 6 p.m. and 12 p.m., and only 6% were seen after 12 a.m. It is our belief that house calls are an integral part of family practice and need to be stressed during the internships of all primary care physicians.  (+info)

(6/2070) The promotion of healthy eating: food availability and choice in Scottish island communities.

Communities in rural areas are in receipt of health education messages on healthy eating aimed at the population. These messages are invariably composed without regard to where people reside, and, in particular, to the availability of, and access to, foodstuffs in rural areas. In this paper the authors present data derived from a participative health needs assessment on the topic of food, diet and health. The research was conducted in a number of islands of the Western Isles of Scotland and comprised seven focus groups, 33 semi-structured interviews, one community and one policy workshop, and a final community feedback session. The needs assessment demonstrated a dichotomy between local experiences of food availability, island food cultures and the contents of healthy eating advice. As a result of the research, local people and health care professionals developed a range of activities on the topic of the traditional island diet. People noted the potentially positive elements of this diet for health but also the possibility of promoting social cohesion through the consideration of food and diet histories. In addition, lobbying at a national level was also identified as necessary to the development of a 'healthy food policy'.  (+info)

(7/2070) Noncommunicable disease management in resource-poor settings: a primary care model from rural South Africa.

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as hypertension, asthma, diabetes and epilepsy are placing an increasing burden on clinical services in developing countries and innovative strategies are therefore needed to optimize existing services. This article describes the design and implementation of a nurse-led NCD service based on clinical protocols in a resource-poor area of South Africa. Diagnostic and treatment protocols were designed and introduced at all primary care clinics in the district, using only essential drugs and appropriate technology; the convenience of management for the patient was highlighted. The protocols enabled the nurses to control the clinical condition of 68% of patients with hypertension, 82% of those with non-insulin-dependent diabetes, and 84% of those with asthma. The management of NCDs of 79% of patients who came from areas served by village or mobile clinics was transferred from the district hospital to such clinics. Patient-reported adherence to treatment increased from 79% to 87% (P = 0.03) over the 2 years that the service was operating. The use of simple protocols and treatment strategies that were responsive to the local situation enabled the majority of patients to receive convenient and appropriate management of their NCD at their local primary care facility.  (+info)

(8/2070) Mortality among homeless shelter residents in New York City.

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the rates and predictors of mortality among sheltered homeless men and women in New York City. METHODS: Identifying data on a representative sample of shelter residents surveyed in 1987 were matched against national mortality records for 1987 through 1994. Standardized mortality ratios were computed to compare death rates among homeless people with those of the general US and New York City populations. Logistic regression analysis was used to examine predictors of mortality within the homeless sample. RESULTS: Age-adjusted death rates of homeless men and women were 4 times those of the general US population and 2 to 3 times those of the general population of New York City. Among homeless men, prior use of injectable drugs, incarceration, and chronic homelessness increased the likelihood of death. CONCLUSIONS: For homeless shelter users, chronic homelessness itself compounds the high risk of death associated with disease/disability and intravenous drug use. Interventions must address not only the health conditions of the homeless but also the societal conditions that perpetuate homelessness.  (+info)


What should I expect from a personality assessment?


My therapist has referred to my a clinical psychologist and asked me to take a personality assessment test, or something. Apparently she is worried I might have some personality disorder. She didn't tell me anything else, so I have no idea what to expect.

Does anyone have an idea what such tests are usually? Has anyone here taken one before?

And should I be worried? Can they decide from the test that I'm dangerous and do something I don't want them to do? 

I appreciate any input on this, no matter how small.
----------

I've never taken a professional personality assessment test before and I already know the outcome if I were to take one anyways...
But maybe your therapist is just trying weigh the possibilities? I don't think you should be worried, she's only trying to help you and if you're really uncomfortable with taking the test then point that out to her. Maybe you could take it another time after discussing why she thinks you should take it.
Sorry if my answer is of no help, but don't worry about this I'm sure it's not that big of a deal :]


What does a psychiatric assessment involve when its at your GP surgery?


Hi, a couple of weeks ago I had to go and have a mental health assessment and this basically just involved being asked questions about my past and my current situation, well after this I was told that they were going to contact the GP liaison team. I have been asked to go to my doctors surgery so they can conduct another assessment. I was wondering if anyone else has been in this situation and what the assessment will involve, or is it just similar to the one i already had, I will be seen by the psychiatric nurse if that makes a difference? Thanks

Hi, This isn't an ''official'' assessment as the mental health nurse will not be able to give you an official diagnosis, she will however ask the same sort of questions as before but as she is trained in the mental health field she will be able to gain a picture of what may be wrong. Depending on what you are be going through she will either work with you for a few weeks at the surgery, or refer you to the place she is based at (normally a mental health unit) where you will get seen by a psychiatrist to diagnose officially. If you are suffering from depression or anxiety it is likely she will work with you at the surgery providing basic CBT techniques. You may be refereed to the psychiatrist anyway to have medication prescribed if you are not on any or she may refer you to other areas within the mental health field such as therapy.

I went through the same situation many years ago and this is how it happened for me! Just be honest and let them help you. Take care.


What is the assessment for borderline personality disorder like?


My dr thinks I have BPD and not aspergers syndrome as originally thought. Just wondered what is the assessment like? How long does it last? How many people carry out the assessment? What sort of things do they ask? I've looked up the process on google but all I can find is it is assessed on a basis of signs and severity of symptoms and history. But that doesn't really help or make me feel less anxious about it
I'm in the UK if that makes a difference.
----------

A psychiatrist diagnosis this disorder by getting all your symptoms down, watching how you behave etc. It can last any length of time, its different for everyone. Good luck <3


What is an assessment session when getting treated for depression?


When I made an appointment, they told me that I would need to attend a mandatory assessment session.  Does that mean they wont be able to give me anti-depressants right away? What will happen at this "session"?
----------

Ask you why your there, whats happening in your words. They then ask you questions relating to the symptoms/problems you describe to them. If you have a history of mental illness you'll probably be given some medications but if you're just now seeing them its a 50/50 shot. They may or may not give you anything. Diagnoses take a while to appear as it involves medication usage, symptoms, and much more information including your family history. It'll probably last about 30 mins. My first visit for my problems resulted in receiving medication but my diagnoses was not given until a few months later when I was hospitalized. So like me, they may give you something for now but not a diagnoses until a few months down the line when they can view your habits, feelings, etc.


How do you a tell a parent you think the child needs developmental assessment?


I babysit a little child who I think needs an assessment.  I know that the sooner the child gets an assessment, the sooner the child can get the help needed.  I have been doing this long enough to know that there is something not right.  The parents though are professionals who would be totally mortified at the idea.  However, this is their first child and they have nothing to compare the child to.  He has not shown any improvement in a year and a half and is in fact regressing in many ares of social development.  He is acting like an 18mth old - 2 year old overall, for example in his speech, coordination, major OCD, excessive crying, spins and sings songs to himself, sensitivity to sensory stimulation/touch, and sort of has this bewildered odd look about his face. I strongly suspect Autism, Asbergers or mild retardation but do not claim to be a psychologist.  I am feeling guilty about not disclosing my suspicions.  Of course,I won't drop the A word but need some suggestions on how to tactfully say that he needs to be checked out by someone more than a regular doctor who has about 500 patients (who here in Canada with free medicare don't spend more than about 3 minutes with a kid on his yearly check up).  Should I say anything or just keep my mouth shut and let them figure it out for themselves?  Any tips on what to say exactly? if anything?
My main objective is to plant the seed but not offend. There is a chance he is okay and I am hoping I am wrong and he grows into a regular teenager. I hope I am wrong about him and they can come back to me in 10 years and say he turned out fine!

You can print out a information sheet for this child's age and then use that as a starting point in talking to the parents.  His parents will likely be very sensitive so you'll need to point out some of your concerns without making them feel like bad parents.  I think you'll be doing the child a huge favor.  The early kids who need help get that help, the better off they are.


How long after orthodontic assessment will I get braces?


I have my orthodontic assessment on 3rd August and I already know that I need braces. I was wondering, for you (or if you just know the answer to the question) how long after your first orthodontic assessment did you actually get your braces on?
I'm getting them with the NHS.
----------

1-2 months depending on how busy the orthodontist is


How can I locate a professional to provide a medical disability assessment for an insurance settlement?


I need to find an independent, qualified person/service to provide expert testimony for an insurance settlement case.  Specifically, to provide an assessment of the nature, extent, and prognosis of injuries I sustained in an auto accident - with the possibility of using this information if the case goes to court.  I have looked online for "disability assessments", "disability profiles", etc., but am not finding anything in my local area (Portland, Oregon).  Any suggestions?
----------

if you are going to court, you had best find an attorney, it's his job to find you an expert witness.
