  • In this article, we consider that the formulation of public policy results partly from a sustainability process, notably through actions implemented as pilot projects, for which a key outcome is the institutionalization of policy instruments [ 3 , 4 ]-in this case, related to user fees. (biomedcentral.com)
  • patients
  • Suffice it to say that Norman's case was not exceptional and that many diabetic patients, whether recently diagnosed or not, have little if any real choice about whether to receive good diabetes care or lifesaving diabetes instruction nor the means to follow whatever instructions they are lucky enough to receive. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Patient empowerment is viewed by policy makers and health care practitioners as a mechanism to help patients with long-term conditions better manage their health and achieve better outcomes. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Although many measures of empowerment exist, no measure has been developed specifically for patients with long-term conditions in the primary care setting. (biomedcentral.com)

  • healthcare
  • Over and above the issues of geographic barriers and quality of care that are part of the long list of determinants of healthcare use [ 1 ], one of the greatest obstacles to access to care remains people's capacity to pay. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Our aim in this analysis is to show that this interconnection has not yet been sufficiently effective, such that current user fee abolition policies are still not able to improve equity of access to the healthcare system. (biomedcentral.com)
  • General
  • Clearly, this article is not meant to minimize the importance of non-financial barriers [ 2 ], but in the context of this Supplement, which is focused on recent user fee abolition policies, our presentation of the general background is oriented toward issues of financial access. (biomedcentral.com)
  • It was very demoralising to find that some policies advocated in the last general election in the health field bore little relationship to those produced by the policy forum process. (sochealth.co.uk)
  • The SHA is in general very impressed with the development of the government's health policies over the past five years. (sochealth.co.uk)
  • However
  • Even if it were politically feasible, however, hollowing out the rest of the budget to protect the two fastest-growing programs would put a disproportionate burden on all of the nation's other priorities. (concordcoalition.org)
  • hospital
  • My aim here is not to provide a technical account and analysis of Norman's initial or follow-up medical care or his hospital bill. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • A central argument for the establishment of foundation trusts is the need for greater local responsiveness in hospital policy. (historyandpolicy.org)
  • financial
  • In the history of attempts to remove this financial obstacle, the train that has been rolling for the past 30 years has always been made up of two types of cars: pilot projects and public policies. (biomedcentral.com)
  • conditions
  • Multivariate analysis identified a statistical relationship between HRQoL and the conditions of detention, controlling for the effect of sociodemographic characteristics, morbidity, and mental problems. (lse.ac.uk)
  • public
  • Many developing countries, spurred by rapid economic growth, are faced with increasing public aspirations for better and affordable health care. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Since then there have been other pilot projects studying the abolition of user fees in the 2000s, but these have not yet had any real influence on public policies, which are often still chaotic. (biomedcentral.com)
  • If this image is more familiar to readers of Haitian history than to those interested in public policy in West Africa, it is because the writings of certain health economists have not yet penetrated all borders. (biomedcentral.com)
  • take
  • 5 Even when the best diabetes care and education practices are available, it is difficult, if not impossible, for many people such as Norman to take advantage of them, given their out-of-pocket costs. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Although
  • Although not easy to achieve, good diabetes care is not rocket science. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Factor analysis identified a three factor solution (positive attitude and sense of control, knowledge and confidence in decision making and enabling others), although the structure lacked clarity. (biomedcentral.com)
  • medical

  • study
  • Given the relationship between obesity and mental health, a study on whether weight control influences suicidal ideation is needed. (biomedcentral.com)
  • In this study, we tried to identify factors that influence the decision to purchase supplementary PHI and investigate the impacts of PHI on various aspects of cancer care. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The notion that the best care is that which attempts to mimic normal pancreatic function within the limits of available technologies makes intuitive sense to anybody trained in human physiology and was scientifically demonstrated by the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial and the United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Assessing burn care in Brazil: An epidemiologic, cross-sectional, nationwide study. (harvard.edu)
  • questions
  • Two questions arise from this scenario: Is it politically feasible to count on cuts of this magnitude being enacted, and even assuming that it could be done would it be wise policy? (concordcoalition.org)
  • issues
  • To address these issues, we investigated the effects of weight control failure on suicidal ideation in the overweight and obese populations. (biomedcentral.com)
