Preventive Services Task Force guidelines on my computer to show her that there was no compelling evidence to support screening. Preventive Services Task Force, a panel of experts that advises the federal government on health matters, says most women need to get mammograms only once every two years, and only when they're between the ages of 50 and 74. A new study comes down on the side of the task force. The 15 primary-care physicians who make up the Preventive Services Task Force, an independent group sponsored by the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, review the evidence about screening and other techniques for detecting and preventing disease, then advise doctors on which ones to use.

... Three simple ways you can make a difference in your dog’s health. Posted: May 6, 2008, 5 a.m. EST. Tweet. Because dogs can t provide for themselves when it comes to health and medical needs, it is up to their owners to look out for their well-being. Marty Becker, DVM, offers three simple ways to make a big difference in your dog s health. 1 According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, about 85 percent of dogs and cats 3 years or older have some evidence of periodontal disease. As with humans, periodontal disease has been associated with heart, liver, and kidney problems. Untreated periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss and worse, Becker says. The good news is that it s progressive, so early detection and treatment by your veterinarian and good daily at-home care makes a big difference. Owners should brush their dogs teeth regularly, and veterinarians also recommend giving your dog dental treats. 2 Obesity in pets causes a lot of the same problems that it does in people, Becker says.

Full weather report. Full traffic report. Email. The new health-care law covers people who want to get preventive services - what do you do when there's a charge. By Michelle Andrews, Kaiser Health News. The new health-care law encourages people to get the preventive services they need by requiring that most health plans cover cancer screenings, contraceptives and vaccines, among other things, without charging patients anything out of pocket. Some patients, however, are running up against coverage exceptions and extra costs when they try to get those services. Advocates and policy experts agree that more federal guidance is needed to clarify the rules. Hyde discussed the problem with hospital billing staff, who offered to resubmit the bill using a different procedure billing code. Hyde says she hopes the issue can be resolved without having to appeal to her health plan. Other patients have reported being charged for services related to a colonoscopy, if not the actual screening itself. Under the health law, p...

He found that 1 in 5 Americans gets a general physical check-up in a given year, accounting for 8% of all ambulatory visits to doctors and ringing up a $7.8 billion annual price tag. But by examining the data on eight key preventive health procedures, Mehrotra found that almost all the important counseling and testing from weight-loss tips to mammograms happens outside of general physicals. Q: Are annual check-ups necessary. Most patients in this country believe an annual physical is necessary, but there's little evidence to support that at this time.

New Preventive Services: Giving Latinas More Control Over Their Health Care October 9, 2012 by nlirh. They are less likely to have access to quality health care and are less likely to get the preventive services they need to stay healthy. But because of the health care law, Latina women can make their health a priority and have more opportunities to keep their families healthy. Today, more than 6 million Hispanic Americans who have private insurance can get many preventive services without paying anything out-of-pocket. For many Latinas with private health insurance, they have access to services like mammograms, pap smears, and well-woman visits without paying any additional cost. Getting these preventive services with no out-of-pocket costs makes it easier for women to access them, which can help address critical health challenges, such as diabetes and cervical cancer, that disproportionally affect Latinas.

The massive migrations of the last decades have brought many healthy carriers of these diseases to live and reproduce in non-endemic immigration areas changing the epidemiological pattern of the local recessive diseases and bringing an urgent need for treatment and primary prevention in welfare countries. Morbidity prevention can be offered by newborn screening to reduce the severe symptoms in the born child and primary prevention can be made available to couples at risk to prevent the birth of a severely affected child. Due to the severity of the disease, primary prevention for CF is offered in many countries but mainly retrospectively, to couples at risk after the birth of the first affected child. Today, the historical epidemiology of these diseases has changed dramatically and healthy carriers are present all over the world, while more affected children are born in the non-endemic immigration areas of Northern Europe than in the endemic Mediterranean countries. In fact, the epidemiology of HBP in most non...

Department of Health and Human Services says that funding shortfalls remain an obstacle to hiring needed inspectors for abortion clinics and other medical facilities. DHHS’ new report says the department hasn’t acquired federal funds needed to hire additional clinic inspectors.

General Assembly’s Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Health and Human Services  apprised of the process. “Ten new positions will be needed.”. Those inspectors would survey not only abortion clinics but other acute care facilities as well, including dialysis centers and psychiatric hospitals.

(1/1341) Perspectives from micronutrient malnutrition elimination/eradication programmes.

Micronutrient malnutrition cannot be eradicated, but the elimination and control of iron, vitamin A and iodine deficiencies and their health-related consequences as public health problems are currently the targets of global programmes. Remarkable progress is occurring in the control of goitre and xerophthalmia, but iron-deficiency anaemia (IDA) has been less responsive to prevention and control efforts. Subclinical consequences of micronutrient deficiencies, i.e. "hidden hunger", include compromised immune functions that increase the risk of morbidity and mortality, impaired cognitive development and growth, and reduced reproductive and work capacity and performance. The implications are obvious for human health and national and global economic and social development. Mixes of affordable interventions are available which, when appropriately adapted to resource availability and context, are proven to be effective. These include both food-based interventions, particularly fortification programmes, such as salt iodization, and use of concentrated micronutrient supplements. A mix of accompanying programmes for infection control, community participation, including education, communication and information exchange, and private sector involvement are lessons learned for overcoming deterrents and sustaining progress towards elimination.  (+info)

(2/1341) Perspectives from the dracunculiasis eradication programme.

After a slow beginning in association with the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (1981-1990), the global Dracunculiasis Eradication Programme has reduced the incidence of dracunculiasis by nearly 97%, from an estimated 3.2 million cases in 1986 to less than 100,000 cases in 1997. Over half of the remaining cases are in Sudan. In addition, the programme has already produced many indirect benefits such as improved agricultural production and school attendance, extensive provision of clean drinking-water, mobilization of endemic communities, and improved care of infants. Most workers in the campaign have other responsibilities in their communities or ministries of health besides dracunculiasis eradication.  (+info)

(3/1341) The cost effectiveness of strategies for the treatment of intestinal parasites in immigrants.

BACKGROUND: Currently, more than 600,000 immigrants enter the United States each year from countries where intestinal parasites are endemic. At entry persons with parasitic infections may be asymptomatic, and stool examinations are not a sensitive method of screening for parasitosis. Albendazole is a new, broad-spectrum antiparasitic drug, which was approved recently by the Food and Drug Administration. International trials have shown albendazole to be safe and effective in eradicating many parasites. In the United States there is now disagreement about whether to screen all immigrants for parasites, treat all immigrants presumptively, or do nothing unless they have symptoms. METHODS: We compared the costs and benefits of no preventive intervention (watchful waiting) with those of universal screening or presumptive treatment with 400 mg of albendazole per day for five days. Those at risk were defined as immigrants to the United States from Asia, the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America and the Caribbean. Cost effectiveness was expressed both in terms of the cost of treatment per disability-adjusted life-year (DALY) averted (one DALY is defined as the loss of one year of healthy life to disease) and in terms of the cost per hospitalization averted. RESULTS: As compared with watchful waiting, presumptive treatment of all immigrants at risk for parasitosis would avert at least 870 DALYs, prevent at least 33 deaths and 374 hospitalizations, and save at least $4.2 million per year. As compared with watchful waiting, screening would cost $159,236 per DALY averted. CONCLUSIONS: Presumptive administration of albendazole to all immigrants at risk for parasitosis would save lives and money. Universal screening, with treatment of persons with positive stool examinations, would save lives but is less cost effective than presumptive treatment.  (+info)

(4/1341) Community-level HIV intervention in 5 cities: final outcome data from the CDC AIDS Community Demonstration Projects.

OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated a theory-based community-level intervention to promote progress toward consistent condom and bleach use among selected populations at increased risk for HIV infection in 5 US cities. METHODS: Role-model stories were distributed, along with condoms and bleach, by community members who encouraged behavior change among injection drug users, their female sex partners, sex workers, non-gay-identified men who have sex with men, high-risk youth, and residents in areas with high sexually transmitted disease rates. Over a 3-year period, cross-sectional interviews (n = 15,205) were conducted in 10 intervention and comparison community pairs. Outcomes were measured on a stage-of-change scale. Observed condom carrying and intervention exposure were also measured. RESULTS: At the community level, movement toward consistent condom use with main (P < .05) and nonmain (P < .05) partners, as well as increased condom carrying (P < .0001), was greater in intervention than in comparison communities. At the individual level, respondents recently exposed to the intervention were more likely to carry condoms and to have higher stage-of-change scores for condom and bleach use. CONCLUSIONS: The intervention led to significant communitywide progress toward consistent HIV risk reduction.  (+info)

In Amsterdam, a three-tiered program exists to deal with drug use and addiction. General practitioners form the backbone of the system, helping to deal with the majority of addicts, who are not criminals and many of whom desire to be free of addiction. Distinctions are made between drugs with "acceptable" and "unacceptable" risks, and between drug use and drug-related crime; patients who fall into the former categories are treated in a nonconfrontational, nonstigmatizing manner; such a system helps prevent the majority of patients from passing into unacceptable, criminalized categories. The overall program has demonstrated harm reduction both for patients and for the city of Amsterdam.  (+info)

(6/1341) Stroke: the global burden.

Stroke is a major global health problem. It is a major cause of mortality, morbidity and disability in developed and increasingly in less developed countries. Worldwide, it is the leading cause of healthy years lost in late adulthood, and evidence indicates that the burden of stroke, particularly in terms of morbidity and disability, will almost certainly increase in the foreseeable future. This review aims to generate a better understanding of the present and projected future global burden of stroke, with particular emphasis on the non-established market economy countries (NEMEC). The first part summarizes and interprets the currently available evidence on stroke mortality, incidence, case-fatality and related disability rates from both established and non-established market economy countries. The second part reviews the main risk factors for stroke. For the modifiable factors, it examines current prevalence rates in NEMEC with a view towards identifying patterns that are relevant for predicting future rates of the disease. Reversing the consequences of stroke is difficult, thus primary prevention is of utmost importance. The potential for prevention is illustrated by the experience of Japan, which in the last two decades has seen substantial declines in stroke mortality--mostly due to reductions in dietary salt intake. The last section discusses potential strategies and approaches to effective stroke prevention and highlights other areas that need to be addressed if stroke management in the coming decades is to be effective.  (+info)

(8/1341) 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)


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.


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.

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 county health and human social services primarily only for women, children and the elderly?


I am working class and couldn’t afford mental health services for counseling on my own.  I called county social services but unless I was a police code 5150, there didn’t seem to be any social services counseling.  Instead the primary chunk of social services seemed geared only towards mothers with children, children themselves, the chronically homeless, addicts, or the elderly.

Is it a mistake for childless adult males, who aren’t suicidal but need mental health counseling, to seek county services?
----------

It's never a mistake to try.  Whether you qualify depends on your county.  Usually there are some public mental health programs.  For some, you have to be on public assistance.  It depends a lot on where you are. I think you are in CA because you reference a CA police code.  Look for the number for mental health services in your county.  If they say you don't qualify, ask for referrals to other low cost providers- they should have phone numbers.

Consider looking outside of public services, too.  Often, clinics associated with universities will offer discounted/sliding scale services.  Some non-profits also offer sliding scale fees.  I worked for a CA non-profit in the high desert that offered services by intern therapists (Master's trained) for $1 a session.


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.
