The story Adrian McHargh grew up active and skinny in Kingston, Jamaica. An enthusiastic swimmer, he had the pristine waters of the Caribbean for a playground until two years ago, when he and his family moved to America. I would always cook a healthy dinner, the 13-year-old's mother, Visha Siew-Narine, says about mealtime on the island. When he came here, I think the fascination of having all this food that we couldn't afford in Jamaica, or that wasn't really available, that was kind of new to him. In suburban Atlanta, things changed fast. The new foods were cheap, unhealthy and hard to resist: toaster waffles, corn dogs and the chocolate syrup Adrian liked so much he guzzled it straight from the bottle. I would eat a lot because I was bored, he says. I was sitting on the couch just watching TV, not playing a lot. Within months, Adrian was in trouble. He'd packed on 30 pounds. Doctors said he had hypertension, high cholesterol and was at high risk for type 2 diabetes. Read full article. John Bonifield is an a...

(1/795) Evaluation of a national surveillance unit.

AIM: The Australian Paediatric Surveillance Unit (APSU) facilitates national active surveillance of uncommon childhood conditions. This study assessed whether it fulfilled its objectives and satisfied criteria established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for evaluating surveillance systems. METHODS: Anonymous questionnaires were sent to users of the system, individual studies were reviewed, and data were collected from independent sources. RESULTS: Seven hundred and sixty six clinicians, 48 investigators, and 15 public health professionals responded to the questionnaires. Clinicians reported that the APSU was useful, 33% saying information provided by the APSU informed or changed their clinical practice. Most (88%) reported that completing monthly report cards was not a burden. Impact on policy development was limited by suboptimal dissemination of information to public health professionals. Flexibility and timeliness were limited by design. Estimated sensitivity of APSU studies ranged from 92% (congenital rubella) to 31% (drowning/near drowning). Positive predictive value of notified cases was over 70% for most studies. CONCLUSION: The APSU fulfils most of its objectives and meets CDC criteria salient to these. Ways in which the APSU could be improved have been identified, as have methodological challenges and limitations in applying CDC guidelines to this type of unit.  (+info)

(2/795) Nationwide implementation of guided supermarket tours in The Netherlands: a dissemination study.

The purpose of this study was to assess adoption, implementation and maintenance of a guided supermarket tour program of nutrition education by Dutch Public Health Services (PHSs), and the factors associated with program dissemination. A first questionnaire was sent to all 60 PHSs, and measured program adoption, perceived program attributes, and characteristics of the adopting organization and person. A second questionnaire was only sent to adopting PHSs, and measured extent and success of implementation, intentions to continue the program, and characteristics of the main implementing person. Of the 59 PHSs who responded, 30 adopted the program and 17 implemented it sufficiently. Perceived program complexity, social influence within the PHS toward program participation and existence of a separate health education department were predictors of adoption. Perceived program complexity was also a predictor of extent of implementation. The number of health educators within each PHS was a predictor of sufficient implementation. It was concluded that adoption and implementation of the program was reasonable, considering the limited dissemination strategy. Dissemination might have been more successful if the program had been less complex and required less effort, if positive social influence had been generated, and if specific attention had been given to PHSs without a separate health education department.  (+info)

(3/795) Assessing public health capacity to support community-based heart health promotion: the Canadian Heart Health Initiative, Ontario Project (CHHIOP).

This paper presents initial findings of the Canadian Heart Health Initiative, Ontario Project (CHHIOP). CHHIOP has two primary objectives. The programmatic objective is to coordinate and refine a system for supporting effective, sustained community-based heart health activities. This paper addresses the scientific objective: to develop knowledge of factors that influence the development of predisposition and capacity to undertake community-based heart health activities in public health departments. A systems theory framework for an ecological approach to health promotion informs the conceptualization of the key constructs, measured using a two-stage longitudinal design which combines quantitative and qualitative methods. This paper reports the results of the first round of quantitative survey data collected from all health departments in Ontario (N = 42) and individuals within each health department involved in heart health promotion (n = 262). Results indicate low levels of implementation of heart health activities, both overall and for particular risk factors and settings. Levels of capacity are also generally low, yet predisposition to undertake heart health promotion activities is reportedly high. Analyses show that implementation is positively related to capacity but not predisposition, while predisposition and capacity are positively related. Overall, results suggest predisposition is a necessary but not sufficient condition for implementation to occur; capacity-related factors appear to be the primary constraint. These findings are used to inform strategies to address CHHIOP's programmatic objective.  (+info)

(4/795) Integrated management of childhood illness: a summary of first experiences.

The strategy of Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) aims to reduce child mortality and morbidity in developing countries by combining improved management of common childhood illnesses with proper nutrition and immunization. The strategy includes interventions to improve the skills of health workers, the health system, and family and community practices. This article describes the experience of the first countries to adopt and implement the IMCI interventions, the clinical guidelines dealing with the major causes of morbidity and mortality in children, and the training package on these guidelines for health workers in first-level health facilities. The most relevant lessons learned and how these lessons have served as a basis for developing a broader IMCI strategy are described.  (+info)

(5/795) Evaluating the public health impact of health promotion interventions: the RE-AIM framework.

Progress in public health and community-based interventions has been hampered by the lack of a comprehensive evaluation framework appropriate to such programs. Multilevel interventions that incorporate policy, environmental, and individual components should be evaluated with measurements suited to their settings, goals, and purpose. In this commentary, the authors propose a model (termed the RE-AIM model) for evaluating public health interventions that assesses 5 dimensions: reach, efficacy, adoption, implementation, and maintenance. These dimensions occur at multiple levels (e.g., individual, clinic or organization, community) and interact to determine the public health or population-based impact of a program or policy. The authors discuss issues in evaluating each of these dimensions and combining them to determine overall public health impact. Failure to adequately evaluate programs on all 5 dimensions can lead to a waste of resources, discontinuities between stages of research, and failure to improve public health to the limits of our capacity. The authors summarize strengths and limitations of the RE-AIM model and recommend areas for future research and application.  (+info)

(6/795) Framework for program evaluation in public health.

Effective program evaluation is a systematic way to improve and account for public health actions by involving procedures that are useful, feasible, ethical, and accurate. The framework guides public health professionals in their use of program evaluation. It is a practical, nonprescriptive tool, designed to summarize and organize essential elements of program evaluation. The framework comprises steps in program evaluation practice and standards for effective program evaluation. Adhering to the steps and standards of this framework will allow an understanding of each program's context and will improve how program evaluations are conceived and conducted. Furthermore, the framework encourages an approach to evaluation that is integrated with routine program operations. The emphasis is on practical, ongoing evaluation strategies that involve all program stakeholders, not just evaluation experts. Understanding and applying the elements of this framework can be a driving force for planning effective public health strategies, improving existing programs, and demonstrating the results of resource investments.  (+info)

(7/795) Controlled management of public relations following a public health incident.

This paper describes the management of public relations following an outbreak of multidrug resistant TB at a London hospital. Eight patients were involved, all of the secondary cases occurred in HIV seropositive patients, and three cases died. The paper describes how the the Incident Committee undertook to recall contacts of the cases for screening, inform the general practitioners of all of the contacts about their patients' exposure, warn other organizations and professionals interested or involved in the management of HIV in the London area as to the nature of the incident, and establish a helpline, before informing a wider audience through the EPINET, Communicable Disease Report and national press.  (+info)

(8/795) Evaluating computerized health information systems: hardware, software and human ware: experiences from the Northern Province, South Africa.

Despite enormous investment world-wide in computerized health information systems their overall benefits and costs have rarely been fully assessed. A major new initiative in South Africa provides the opportunity to evaluate the introduction of information technology from a global perspective and assess its impact on public health. The Northern Province is implementing a comprehensive integrated hospital information system (HIS) in all of its 42 hospitals. These include two mental health institutions, eight regional hospitals (two acting as a tertiary complex with teaching responsibilities) and 32 district hospitals. The overall goal of the HIS is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of health (and welfare) services through the creation and use of information, for clinical, administrative and monitoring purposes. This multi-site implementation is being undertaken as a single project at a cost of R130 million (which represents 2.5 per cent of the health and welfare budget on an annual basis). The implementation process commenced on 1 September 1998 with the introduction of the system into Mankweng Hospital as the pilot site and is to be completed in the year 2001. An evaluation programme has been designed to maximize the likelihood of success of the implementation phase (formative evaluation) as well as providing an overall assessment of its benefits and costs (summative evaluation). The evaluation was designed as a form of health technology assessment; the system will have to prove its worth (in terms of cost-effectiveness) relative to other interventions. This is more extensive than the traditional form of technical assessment of hardware and software functionality, and moves into assessing the day-to-day utility of the system, the clinical and managerial environment in which it is situated (humanware), and ultimately its effects on the quality of patient care and public health. In keeping with new South African legislation the evaluation process sought to involve as many stakeholders as possible at the same time as creating a methodologically rigorous study that lived within realistic resource limits. The design chosen for the summative assessment was a randomized controlled trial (RCT) in which 24 district hospitals will receive the HIS either early or late. This is the first attempt to carry out an RCT evaluation of a multi-site implementation of an HIS in the world. Within this design the evaluation will utilize a range of qualitative and quantitative techniques over varying time scales, each addressing specific aims of the evaluation programme. In addition, it will attempt to provide an overview of the general impact on people and organizations of introducing high-technology solutions into a relatively unprepared environment. The study should help to stimulate an evaluation culture in the health and welfare services in the Northern Province as well as building the capacity to undertake such evaluations in the future.  (+info)

----------

A. Public health looks at everyone from all over. We (I'm an epidemiologist) are concerned with things that may be coming down the pike and hit all of us (like bird flu, etc.). Community health mostly involves doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals that tailor interventions to a particular community's needs, and they generally don't plan out for "the bigger picture", although they do a heck a job in their locales, since they know it better.


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.


What would be the population mortality rate without any scientific influences ?


ie: if only religion and culture contributed to our Public Health practices :)

Then we would have a lot of death and a lot of praying.... Not saying that scientific influences doesn't have their bad sides but considering that if a person doesn't believe in religion, then what then?  Religion should be left to spiritual matters, culture I agree with, there are lots of remedies that are passed down with word to mouth and they are very good... and sometimes should be credited as being medical... overall though, scientific influences have saved more lives than not.

What's a really good way to gain experience in the field of public health during the summer?


I would like to pursue my education in public health. I'm from a social science/international development background. I am mostly interested in injuries, violence, mental health and women's health. I'm volunteering at the Sexual Assault Center but I'm sure there's something else I could do during the summer.
----------

You can also try volunteering at any state run facility for the mentally handicapped. There you will find mental,physical, and aggressive behavior patients all at one facility. You will probably have to go through a 2 week safety training session for both the safety of yourself and the people there. You might also try to volunteer at a place for women that have been in a physically abusive relationship. I would imagine you might have to go though the state or county for that because of the safety issues. Good luck and God Bless. This is a very hard career to work in. I actually did most of my nursing in a state facility. People like yourself are desperately needed and I'm sure you'll find that there are so many rewards that you'll be glad you did. It's a very hard job, but your will be gratified in the care of the people that you come in contact with.


What does a Public Health Emergency Level 5 mean?


What happens when the public health reaches level 5? One of my friends said that all of the schools get shut down, but it seems that we've already reached level five because of the swine flu but we're still in school...So what happens at this level and can someone explain what happens at the various levels?
----------

No it just means that the World Health Org thinks that a pandemic is imminent. It happens when it has spread from person to person in two or more countries.

In the 2009 revision of the phase descriptions, WHO has retained the use of a six-phased approach for easy incorporation of new recommendations and approaches into existing national preparedness and response plans. The grouping and description of pandemic phases have been revised to make them easier to understand, more precise, and based upon observable phenomena. Phases 1–3 correlate with preparedness, including capacity development and response planning activities, while Phases 4–6 clearly signal the need for response and mitigation efforts. Furthermore, periods after the first pandemic wave are elaborated to facilitate post pandemic recovery activities.


What career opportunities are there for and RDH in Public Health?


I'm a dental hygienist and since I was in school I had a strong interest in public health. I've been looking into schools so that I can obtain a master's degree in public health, but I want to know what all I can do with it because I don't want to work in private practice for my whole career.

You can get a teaching post at a university or you can also get a job in the WHO.


What emerging disease has become a burden in relation to public health?


Discussion Question: choose an emerging disease and discuss the related public health burden.
----------

This biggest issue that people are going to talk about is going to be the H1N1virus. I would have to agree with them, although I am sick and tired of hearing about the subject of H1N1. My personal belief is that the terrorist Barack Obama and his cabinet released the virus. Terrorist Obama is wanting a 20% reduction of the U.S. population by the end of 2010. In other words he (the terrorist) is planning to kill people off; maybe that is why he has been so interested in passing the stupid "health" bill.

The H1N1 virus (or Swine Flu) is the biggest burden to the public, because the government is trying to force people to take the vaccine. Health care workers are being told they will be fined over one thousand dollars and cannot work if he or she does not get the H1N1 vaccine. What kind of government (United States government) forces people to get something which could and most likely will hurt them or their children? The United States of America is supposed to be a free country, yet people do not see those freedoms. The H1N1 virus put so many people all over the world into a panic that the virus is the only thing people hear about, when it comes to medical information. Everyone understands how things spread and what they can do to stop the spread of germs and viruses. Making someone take or get a vaccine they do not want to get is wrong and should not be done. The public keeps hearing that the H1N1 vaccine is safe and there are "no" side effects. First off, there are always side effect when it comes to drugs and treatments. Second, the vaccine was not ever tested. Third, those who are saying this work for the U.S. government (being run by a terrorist). I personally will not get the H1N1 vaccine and nether will my child.
