Dietary intake and practices in the Hong Kong Chinese population. (1/6626)

OBJECTIVES: To examine dietary intake and practices of the adult Hong Kong Chinese population to provide a basis for future public health recommendations with regard to prevention of certain chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and osteoporosis. PARTICIPANTS: Age and sex stratified random sample of the Hong Kong Chinese population aged 25 to 74 years (500 men, 510 women). METHOD: A food frequency method over a one week period was used for nutrient quantification, and a separate questionnaire was used for assessment of dietary habits. Information was obtained by interview. RESULTS: Men had higher intakes of energy and higher nutrient density of vitamin D, monounsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol, but lower nutrient density of protein, many vitamins, calcium, iron, copper, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. There was an age related decrease in energy intake and other nutrients except for vitamin C, sodium, potassium, and percentage of total calorie from carbohydrate, which all increased with age. Approximately 50% of the population had a cholesterol intake of < or = 300 mg; 60% had a fat intake < or = 30% of total energy; and 85% had a percentage of energy from saturated fats < or = 10%; criteria considered desirable for cardiovascular health. Seventy eight per cent of the population had sodium intake values in the range shown to be associated with the age related rise in blood pressure with age. Mean calcium intake was lower than the FAO/WHO recommendations. The awareness of the value of wholemeal bread and polyunsaturated fat spreads was lower in this population compared with that in Australia. There was a marked difference in types of cooking oil compared with Singaporeans, the latter using more coconut/palm/mixed vegetable oils. CONCLUSION: Although the current intake pattern for cardiovascular health for fat, saturated fatty acid, and cholesterol fall within the recommended range for over 50% of the population, follow up surveys to monitor the pattern would be needed. Decreasing salt consumption, increasing calcium intake, and increasing the awareness of the health value of fibre may all be beneficial in the context of chronic disease prevention.  (+info)

Randomised controlled trial of effect of feedback on general practitioners' prescribing in Australia. (2/6626)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect on general practitioners' prescribing of feedback on their levels of prescribing. DESIGN: Randomised controlled trial. SETTING: General practice in rural Australia. PARTICIPANTS: 2440 full time recognised general practitioners practising in non-urban areas. INTERVENTION: Two sets of graphical displays (6 months apart) of their prescribing rates for 2 years, relative to those of their peers, were posted to participants. Data were provided for five main drug groups and were accompanied by educational newsletters. The control group received no information on their prescribing. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Prescribing rates in the intervention and control groups for the five main drug groups, total prescribing and potential substitute prescribing and ordering before and after the interventions. RESULTS: The intervention and control groups had similar baseline characteristics (age, sex, patient mix, practices). Median prescribing rates for the two groups were almost identical before and after the interventions. Any changes in prescribing observed in the intervention group were also seen in the control group. There was no evidence that feedback reduced the variability in prescribing nor did it differentially affect the very high or very low prescribers. CONCLUSIONS: The form of feedback evaluated here-mailed, unsolicited, centralised, government sponsored, and based on aggregate data-had no impact on the prescribing levels of general practitioners.  (+info)

Preliminary report: symptoms associated with mobile phone use. (3/6626)

Mobile phone use is ubiquitous, although the alleged health effects of low level radio-frequency radiation (RFR) used in transmission are contentious. Following isolated reports of headache-like symptoms arising in some users, a survey has been conducted to characterize the symptoms sometimes associated with mobile phone usage. A notice of interest in cases was placed in a major medical journal and this was publicized by the media. Respondents were interviewed by telephone using a structured questionnaire. Forty respondents from diverse occupations described unpleasant sensations such as a burning feeling or a dull ache mainly occurring in the temporal, occipital or auricular areas. The symptoms often began minutes after beginning a call, but could come on later during the day. The symptoms usually ceased within an hour after the call, but could last until evening. Symptoms did not occur when using an ordinary handset, and were different from ordinary headaches. There were several reports suggestive of intra-cranial effects. Three respondents reported local symptoms associated with wearing their mobile phone on their belts. There was one cluster of cases in a workplace. Seventy-five per cent of cases were associated with digital mobile phones. Most of the respondents obtained relief by altering their patterns of telephone usage or type of phone. Cranial and other diverse symptoms may arise associated with mobile phone usage. Physicians and users alike should be alert to this. Further work is needed to determine the range of effects, their mechanism and the possible implications for safety limits of RFR.  (+info)

Rider injury rates and emergency medical services at equestrian events. (4/6626)

BACKGROUND: Horse riding is a hazardous pastime, with a number of studies documenting high rates of injury and death among horse riders in general. This study focuses on the injury experience of cross country event riders, a high risk subset of horse riders. METHOD: Injury data were collected at a series of 35 equestrian events in South Australia from 1990 to 1998. RESULTS: Injury rates were found to be especially high among event riders, with frequent falls, injuries, and even deaths. The highest injury rates were among the riders competing at the highest levels. CONCLUSION: There is a need for skilled emergency medical services at equestrian events.  (+info)

Changing epidemiology of hepatitis A in the 1990s in Sydney, Australia. (5/6626)

Surveillance of hepatitis A in residents of Eastern Sydney Health Area identified substantial epidemics in homosexual males in 1991-2 with a peak rate of 520 per 100,000 recorded in males aged 25-29 years, and again in 1995-6, with a peak rate of 405 per 100,000 per year in males aged 30-34 years. During 1994-5 an epidemic was detected among disadvantaged youth associated with injecting drug use; peak rates of 200 per 100,000 per year were reported in males aged 25-29 years and of 64 per 100,000 per year among females aged 20-24 years. The epidemiology of hepatitis A in these inner suburbs of Sydney is characterized by very few childhood cases and recurrent epidemics among homosexual men. Identified risk groups need to be targeted with appropriate messages regarding the importance of hygiene and vaccination in preventing hepatitis A. However, poor access to health services among disadvantaged youth and a constant influx of young homosexual males into these inner suburbs present major challenges to hepatitis A control.  (+info)

A comparative analysis of surveyors from six hospital accreditation programmes and a consideration of the related management issues. (6/6626)

PURPOSE: To gather data on how accreditors manage surveyors, to compare these data and to offer them to the accreditors for improvement and to the scientific community for knowledge of the accreditation process and reinforcement of the credibility of these processes. DATA SOURCE: The data were gathered with the aid of a questionnaire sent to all accreditors participating in the study. RESULTS: An important finding in this comparative study is the different contractual relationships that exist between the accreditors and their surveyors. CONCLUSION: Surveyors around the world share many common features in terms of careers, training, work history and expectations. These similarities probably arise from the objectives of the accreditors who try to provide a developmental process to their clients rather than an 'inspection'.  (+info)

Biodiversity of Lactococcus garvieae strains isolated from fish in Europe, Asia, and Australia. (7/6626)

Lactococcus garvieae (junior synonym, Enterococcus seriolicida) is a major pathogen of fish, producing fatal septicemia among fish species living in very diverse environments. The phenotypic traits of L. garvieae strains collected from three different continents (Asia, Europe, and Australia) indicated phenotypic heterogeneity. On the basis of the acidification of D-tagatose and sucrose, three biotypes were defined. DNA relatedness values and a specific PCR assay showed that all the biotypes belonged to the same genospecies, L. garvieae. All of the L. garvieae strains were serotyped as Lancefield group N. Ribotyping proved that one clone was found both in Japan, where it probably originated, and in Italy, where it was probably imported. PCR of environmental samples did not reveal the source of the contamination of the fish in Italy. Specific clones (ribotypes) were found in outbreaks in Spain and in Italy. The L. garvieae reference strain, isolated in the United Kingdom from a cow, belonged to a unique ribotype. L. garvieae is a rising zoonotic agent. The biotyping scheme, the ribotyping analysis, and the PCR assay described in this work allowed the proper identification of L. garvieae and the description of the origin and of the source of contamination of strains involved in outbreaks or in sporadic cases.  (+info)

Mutations in the nebulin gene associated with autosomal recessive nemaline myopathy. (8/6626)

The congenital nemaline myopathies are rare hereditary muscle disorders characterized by the presence in the muscle fibers of nemaline bodies consisting of proteins derived from the Z disc and thin filament. In a single large Australian family with an autosomal dominant form of nemaline myopathy, the disease is caused by a mutation in the alpha-tropomyosin gene TPM3. The typical form of nemaline myopathy is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, the locus of which we previously assigned to chromosome 2q21.2-q22. We show here that mutations in the nebulin gene located within this region are associated with the disease. The nebulin protein is a giant protein found in the thin filaments of striated muscle. A variety of nebulin isoforms are thought to contribute to the molecular diversity of Z discs. We have studied the 3' end of the 20. 8-kb cDNA encoding the Z disc part of the 800-kDa protein and describe six disease-associated mutations in patients from five families of different ethnic origins. In two families with consanguineous parents, the patients were homozygous for point mutations. In one family with nonconsanguineous parents, the affected siblings were compound heterozygotes for two different mutations, and in two further families with one detected mutation each, haplotypes are compatible with compound heterozygosity. Immunofluorescence studies with antibodies specific to the C-terminal region of nebulin indicate that the mutations may cause protein truncation possibly associated with loss of fiber-type diversity, which may be relevant to disease pathogenesis.  (+info)

Publically accessible pollution databases, such as the Australian National Pollutant Inventory, contain information on chemical emissions released by industrial facility and diffuse sources. They are meant to enable public scrutiny of industrial activity, which in turn, is meant to lead to industries reducing their pollution. In Australia, however, concerns have been consistently raised that this process is not occurring. To assess whether Australias National Pollutant Inventory is fulfilling its legislated goals, we examined the accuracy and consistency of the largest facility and diffuse source of airborne lead, a major pollutant of concern for public health. Our analysis found that the emissions estimates provided by the Inventory were not accurate and were not consistent with other sources of emissions within the Inventory, potentially distorting any user interpretation of emissions estimates provided by the National Pollutant Inventory. We conclude that for at least these important public health

This article discusses patterns in mental health of young Australians from age 19 through 25 and explores changes in mental health over these years. Data are derived from five waves of the Australian Life Patterns longitudinal study. The outcome variable in focus was self-reported mental health. Analyses were conducted in two steps using linear mixed models with both fixed and random effects. The analysis shows a negative linear trend in mental health status. The mental health of women was worse than that of men though a negative trend was found in both men and women. Though high socio-economic status (SES) individuals reported best mental health compared to their mid and low-SES peers, a negative trend was identified for them as well as for mid-SES participants. There is weak support for a negative trend among those of low-SES backgrounds. The study adds to evidence that there is a negative trend in mental health in young Australians but that this trend is not uniform across all young people. ...

Pain associated with chronic wounds can delay wound healing, affects quality of life, and has a major impact on physical, emotional, and cognitive function. However, wound-related pain is often under-assessed and may therefore be suboptimally managed. The aim of this study was to describe the assessment practices used to assess chronic wound pain by health practitioners in Australia. A structured self-administered questionnaire was posted to members of an Australian national wound care organisation, whose membership represents various health practitioners involved in wound management. A total of 1190 (53%) members completed the survey. Overall, wound pain assessment was most commonly conducted at every consultation or wound dressing change (n = 718/1173, 61%). Nurses were more likely to assess wound-related pain before, during, and after the wound dressing procedures compared with other health care practitioners. In contrast, podiatrists assessed wound pain only when the patient complained about ...

Everyone in Australia recognises Telstra as the previously Government-owned telecommunications monopoly that was privatised a little over a decade ago, while being opened to competition. However it has still remained the dominant provider of fixed line, internet and mobile services while at the same time expanding its reach as a provider of cloud services and also increasing its role as a provider of support services to the National Broadband Network (NBN) for a very considerable sum. It is presently one of Australias largest companies with a market capitalisation of more than $75 billion and annual turnover of more than $33 billion writes Dr David More. ...

4.19 DSTG has had difficulty collaborating with small-to-medium enterprises (SME) to commercialise its inventions. Traditionally, DSTG used licenses that were up to 30 pages long, to enable industry to use its research to support Defence capability and the Australian economy. DSTG considers that SMEs often found these licenses to be a prohibitive barrier to collaboration.. 4.20 To enable SMEs to more easily commercialise some of DSTGs inventions, the Technology Partnerships Office has refreshed its suite of collaboration and commercialisation agreement templates. One of these templates simplifies access to DSTGs intellectual property whilst complying with the Commonwealth and Defence policies, in a document of three pages.38 Another innovation is a collaborative R&D template which DSTG has recently rewritten using plain language with the intention of making it easier for SMEs to use.39. 4.21 Furthermore, in May 2015, DSTG replaced its numerous divisional contracting panels with a single point ...

The CVD risk calculators commonly used in clinical practice to estimate future risk of cardiovascular events are most often based on the logistic regression equations generated from observations made since the late 1940s relating to citizens in the town of Framingham. The 1991 Framingham equation is derived from the Framingham cohort study data set and has been widely adopted because it allows estimates of total CVD events rather than individual coronary or stroke events.13 In its source cohort, the Framingham risk score (FRS) derived from the 1991 Framingham regression equation has good discrimination (AUC: 0.763 [men] and 0.793 [women]).13 Although it is arguable as to what constitutes a "good score," it has been suggested that an AUC ,0.8 represents good discrimination, 0.6 to 0.8 is moderate, and ,0.6 is poor.21 However when applied to our aged hypertensive cohort, the FRS was less predictive, tending to overestimate risk, except for CVD mortality in older men, where it underestimated risk. ...
At the end of the study, 58% of subjects randomized to the ACE-inhibitor arm and 62% randomized to the diuretic arm were still receiving the assigned treatment. Blood pressure decreased by 20/9 mm Hg in the ACE arm and 22/9 mm Hg in the diuretic arm by year 1; by 23/10 mm Hg in the ACE arm and 24/10 mm Hg in the diuretic arm by year 2; and by 26/12 mm Hg in both groups by year 5. The primary endpoint, all cardiovascular events or death from any cause, was lower in the ACE-inhibitor group vs the diuretic group (Hazard ratio 0.89, 95% CI 0.79 to 1.00, p=0.05). The benefit was observed in the male subset of patients (HR 0.83, 95% CI 0.71 to 0.97, p=0.02) but was not evident in female patients (HR 1.00, 95% CI 0.83 to 1.21, p=0.98). Similar results were observed for the secondary endpoint of first cardiovascular events, with a benefit in the ACE arm vs the diuretic arm (HR 0.88, 95% CI 0.77 to 1.01, p=0.07) as well as with the first MI endpoint (HR 0.68, 95% CI 0.47 to 0.98, p=0.04).

Significant Achievements, Anticipated Outcomes and Future Work Ethane, propane (liquified petroleum gas) and butane (lighter fluid) are the simplest model hydrocarbon fuel molecules that incorporate an internal rotation. The methyl torsional motion behaves like a vibration at low vibrational energies with a transition to a near-free rotor at high vibrational energies. Our simulations of collisions between these fuel molecules and rare gas atoms have shown that torsional motion acts as a gateway for energy transfer. The implication, for any future studies of larger fuel molecules (e.g. octane), is that simulations of collisional energy transfer must include the correct torsional dynamics. As part of these collisional energy transfer studies, we have developed a multiple direct-encounter hard-sphere model, which enables qualitative prediction of collisional energy transfer trends and behaviours, but at less computational cost than a full quantitative prediction. This will be be useful for future ...
BACKGROUND: Nursing in Australian general practice has grown rapidly over the last decade in response to government initiatives to strengthen primary care. There are limited data about how this expansion has impacted on the nursing role, scope of practice and workforce characteristics. This study aimed to describe the current demographic and employment characteristics of Australian nurses working in general practice and explore trends in their role over time. METHODS: In the nascence of the expansion of the role of nurses in Australian general practice (2003-2004) a national survey was undertaken to describe nurse demographics, clinical roles and competencies. This survey was repeated in 2009-2010 and comparative analysis of the datasets undertaken to explore workforce changes over time. RESULTS: Two hundred eighty four nurses employed in general practice completed the first survey (2003/04) and 235 completed the second survey (2009/10). Significantly more participants in Study 2 were ...

Objective:The aim of this study was to assess the major dietary patterns of two age cohorts of women, to determine to the extent to which the dietary patterns differ between the cohorts and to assess whether they vary according to sociodemographic and behavioural characteristics and patterns of nutrient intake.Method:Dietary intake was assessed using an 80-item food frequency questionnaire for women aged 50-55 years (n=10 150; middle age) in 2001 and aged 25-30 years (n=7371; young) in 2003, from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Womens Health. Factor analysis using principal component extraction was used to identify dietary patterns, and a pattern score was calculated from the consumption of the food items identified with each dietary pattern. Associations between the dietary pattern scores and sociodemographic and behavioural characteristics and nutrient intakes were investigated using regression analysis.Results:Six dietary patterns were identified and were labelled: cooked ...
This study of Australian women presenting for routine Pap testing prior to the introduction of the National HPV Vaccination Program found HPV16 to be the most prevalent HPV genotype in Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian women equally, and that the five most common high-risk types were the same in both groups. Detection of any HPV genotype was strongly associated with smoking, Pap-test abnormalities and younger age. Indigenous women living in remote areas did not have more HPV genotypes detected, or more or fewer vaccine-preventable types, but for non-Indigenous women, living in a major city was associated with a higher probability of having HPV detected, and for that type to be 16 or 18. Marked differences in the prevalence of HPV between Indigenous and non-Indigenous women were not found, although older Indigenous women (31 to 40 years old) had more non-HPV 16/18 types detected. The dominance of HPV16 is consistent with worldwide prevalence studies, but HPV51, the second most common ...

Background The Prevalence and persistence of ADHD have not been described in young Australian adults and few studies have examined how conduct problems (CP) are associated with ADHD for this age group. We estimate lifetime and adult prevalence and persistence rates for three categories of ADHD for 3795 Australian adults, and indicate how career, health and childhood risk factors differ for people with ADHD symptoms and ADHD symptoms plus CP. Methodology Trained interviewers collected participant experience of ADHD, CP, education, employment, childhood experience, relationship and health variables. Three diagnostic definitions of ADHD used were (i) full DSM-IV criteria; (ii) excluding the age 7 onset criterion (no age criterion); (iii) participant experienced difficulties due to ADHD symptoms (problem symptoms). Results Prevalence rates in adulthood were 1.1%, 2.3% and 2.7% for each categorization respectively. Persistence of ADHD from childhood averaged across gender was 55.3% for full criteria, 50

Objectives: The energy density (ED) of the diet is considered an important determinant of total energy intake and thus energy balance and weight change. We aimed to compare relationships between ED and macronutrient content in individual food and beverage items as well as population diet in a typical Western country. Design: Nutrient data for 3673 food items and 247 beverage items came from the Australian Food and Nutrient database (AusNut). Food and beverage intake data came from the 1995 Australian National Nutrition Survey (a 24-h dietary recall survey in 13 858 people over the age of 2). Relationships between ED and macronutrient and water content were analysed by linear regression with 95% prediction bands. Results: For both individual food items and population food intake, there was a positive relationship between ED and percent energy as fat and negative relationships between ED and percent energy as carbohydrate and percent water by weight. In all cases, there was close agreement between ...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the adequacy of blood pressure (BP) treatment among the contemporary adult Australian population with high cardiovascular risk.. METHODS: Data were analyzed from over 53,355 Australians aged 18 years and above enrolled in a large, community-based study of subjects with high cardiovascular risk. Eligibility criteria for BP treatment and target BP levels were derived from the Australian National Heart Foundation, as recommended by JNC VII.. RESULTS: Within the sample, 39,854 subjects met eligibility criteria for BP lowering treatment according to guidelines. Of these, 12,159 (30.5%) were not receiving therapy. The proportion of subjects not receiving therapy when indicated was greater among males than females (32.7% vs 28.1%, p,0.001), and among subjects aged less than 65 years than those greater than 65 years (36.4% vs 22.4%, p,0.001). Of the 34,996 treated subjects, 19,345 (55.28%) had blood pressures above recommended target levels. Again, males (57.1% vs 53.6%, p,0.001) ...
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: A pro-inflammatory diet is thought to lead to hypertension through oxidative stress and vessel wall inflammation. We therefore investigated the association between the dietary inflammatory index (DII) and developing hypertension in a population-based cohort of middle-aged women. METHODS AND RESULTS: The Australian Longitudinal Study on Womens Health ... read more included 7169 Australian women, aged 52 years (SD 1 year) at baseline in 2001, who were followed up through 4 surveys until 2013. The DII, a literature-derived dietary index that has been validated against several inflammatory markers, was calculated based on data collected via a validated food-frequency questionnaire administered at baseline. Hypertension was defined as new onset of doctor-diagnosed hypertension, ascertained through self-report between 2001 and 2013. Generalised Estimating Equation analyses were used to investigate the association between the DII and incident hypertension. The analyses were ...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disease with significant cost to both the individual and the community. In 2007, RA accounted for over $400 million of Australian health expenditure.1 With increasing recognition that uncontrolled disease leads to irreversible joint damage and progressive disability, it is imperative that RA is diagnosed in a timely fashion to allow early intervention with appropriate disease modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs). With these issues in mind, The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) developed Guidelines for the diagnosis and management of early rheumatoid arthritis,2 released in August 2009. This article draws on the recommendations of that guideline. | RACGP

The Council considered energy policy on a national level, recognising that the energy sector affects the lives of all Australians and that it underpins responsible and sustainable development, international competitiveness and economic growth. COAG also recognised that energy markets should operate to maximise provision of reliable energy services and that the effective operation of an open and competitive energy market contributes to delivering benefits to households, small business and industry. COAG noted key strategic issues for Australia s energy future, including the important emerging role gas will play in any national energy policy because of its domestic abundance and flexibility and it is a clean energy source. The challenge for the energy sector is to deliver these benefits within a sustainable development framework and to meet expectations of social responsibility and responsiveness to consumers.. All Australian Governments reaffirmed their existing commitments to currently-agreed ...

Associations of guideline recommended medications for acute coronary syndromes with fall-related hospitalizations and cardiovascular events in older women with ischemic heart disease. Journals of Gerontology Series A Medical Sciences, 2017; 72(2): 259-265. Background: Guidelines for acute coronary syndrome recommend statins, -blockers, angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors or renin-angiotensin system blockers, and antiplatelet agents for the secondary prevention of cardiovascular events. The aim was to examine associations between guideline recommended medications and fall-related hospitalizations and cardiovascular events in robust and frail older women.Methods: 2002-2011 surveys from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Womens Health linked with administrative hospital, pharmaceutical and death registry data (2003-mid-2011) were used. 885 women (82.7±2.7 years, range 76-90) had prior admission for ischemic heart ...

As the leading cause of death and disease in Australia, Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) places a significant burden on society. There are many lifestyle factors that are known to increase the risk of CHD. This study looks at both risk factors and protective factors of CHD. Research also shows CHD prevalence to be predicted by socio-economic status (SES) variables. This study aims to identify the extent to which risk and protective factors predict CHD prevalence in an Australian National survey and whether the association between risk factors and CHD is confounded by SES variables. This study used data from the 1995 National Health Survey (NHS/1995) to evaluate known risk factors as well as the mediating effect of SES factors. Risk factors included regular cigarette smoking, physical activity and alcohol consumption. SES variables are education, income, occupation, and an index of socio-economic disadvantage based on residence. Two dependent variables for CHO used in the analysis are the first health

N2 - Objective: To estimate flavonoid intake in the Australian population. Design: Flavonoid consumption was estimated from 24-hour recall data and apparent consumption data using US Department of Agriculture flavonoid composition data. Subjects: The National Nutrition Survey 1995 assessed dietary intake (24-hour recall) in a representative sample (n = 13858) of the Australian population aged 2 years and over. Results: Analysis of the 24-hour recall data indicated an average adult intake (, 18 years) of 454 mg day-1 (92% being flavan-3-ols). Apple was the highest quercetin source until age 16-18 years, after which onion became an increasingly important prominent source. Variations in hesperetin consumption reflected orange intake. Apple, apricot and grapes were the major sources of epicatechin and catechin for ...
The National Joint Replacement Registry collects data on the implantation of prosthetic joint replacement devices. It reports on the performance of those devices and any revisions that are required. The work of the registry improves the health outcomes for many Australians. The learning that we have gained from this important body has reduced the rate of revisions of transplanted prosthetic devices. Revisions, by the way, are procedures involving replacement or repairs-and I know that is a matter well known to you, Madam Deputy Speaker Burke. For some patients, revisions require a longer time in hospital for recovery. They are generally more expensive and more complex, largely because they involve, to use the vernacular, reopening old wounds. The registry assists in getting better outcomes by tracking and providing an analysis of the best devices to use in the unique circumstances of patients. By avoiding revisions, we get better outcomes for patients and better outcomes for the health finances ...

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE. Los Angeles, August 10, 2017- In an unprecedented censorship attempt by the Australian Government, Polly Tommey, one of the producers of "Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe," was banned from re-entering Australia for three years following the recent Australian tour of the film. The Australian government gave this reason for the ban, "…if the wider Australian community had been made aware of Ms. Tommeys presence in Australia promoting an anti-vaccination film and conducting anti-vaccination seminars, there is a risk that the Australian community would react adversely and thereby would be a risk to the good order of the Australian community.". Vaxxed, at its core, is about a whistleblower from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, who revealed that the CDC concealed and destroyed data on their 2004 study that showed a causal association between the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine and autism. The film is not, and has never been, an anti-vaccination film. The ban ...

Former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has warned of a second Stolen Generation, describing the numbers of Indigenous children being removed from their homes in recent years as "chilling".. Speaking on the eve of the release of this years Closing the Gap report - a report card on how Australia is faring in improving Indigenous health and education - the former Labor leader said the nation needed to do better.. "The uncomfortable truth is that the story of Indigenous child removal is bad - and it is getting worse," Mr Rudd said at an address at the Australian National University in Canberra on Monday.. He said in 2006, 6497 Aboriginal children were in out-of-home care around Australia. In 2007 it had jumped to 7917 and by mid-2015 - the most recent year of recorded data - it stood at 15,432.. In nearly 40 percent of the 2015 cases, no Indigenous organisation was consulted and no extended family or community carer was found.. Mr Rudd said the lack of proper procedures flew in the face of ...

The Australian Government Department of Health began engaging with patients and advocacy groups in early 2013 to discuss the concerns about Lyme borreliosis, also known as Lyme disease.. Now, a Senate inquiry into Growing evidence of an emerging tick-borne disease that causes a Lyme-like illness for many Australian patients conducted by the Senate Community Affairs References Committee culminated in the Committees final report, published on Nov. 9, building on the interim report tabled in May 2016.. The report resulted in 12 recommendations from the committee and the Australian governments response.. Among the recommendations include increased funding for research into tick-borne pathogens and a epidemiological assessment of the prevalence of suspected tick-borne illness in Australia.. Recommendation 9 was about how physicians and other health care provider should address suspected tick-borne illness.. "Consistently adopt a patient-centric approach that focusses on individual patient symptoms, ...
Discussion. Our study has quantified the sizeable independent impact of a range of GP, patient and encounter characteristics on consultation length (irrespective of variation in other factors), particularly GP age and sex, patient age and socioeconomic status, and the management of chronic, psychosocial and female genital problems. This is the first time, to our knowledge, that the individual contributions of these variables to consultation length have been quantified in Australian general practice.. The demonstrated effects are independent of each other and are therefore additive. For example, a consultation with a GP who is female, FRACGP-qualified, 65 years old, an Australian graduate, working in a small rural area will on average be 4.7 minutes longer than one with a GP who is male, not FRACGP-qualified, younger and an overseas graduate, working in a metropolitan area.. To that extra 4.7 minutes, we can add the time generated by the patient and by the content of the consultation. If the ...
Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson are isolated in stable condition in an Australian hospital Thursday after contracting the new coronavirus, the actor and Australian officials said.
Although the current Australian infant feeding recommendation is that infants should be exclusively breastfed for around 6 months [11], during 2002-3 when the present study was conducted, Australian recommendations stated that solids foods be introduced during the first 4 to 6 months [10]. Nevertheless, compliance by mothers in this study with the recommendations current at the time was poor, with close to half of all infants (43.5%) receiving their first solid foods before 17 weeks of age. This finding is reasonably consistent with the results of the 2001 Australian National Health Survey [19] which indicated that 55% of infants over 18 weeks were receiving solids.. Non-adherence to feeding recommendations is not limited to Australian mothers. Even higher rates of non-compliance with the earlier WHO recommendation were reported in a number of studies of industrialised populations conducted in the late 1990s and early 2000s, with 45% of New Zealand [20], 63% of Finnish [21] and 70% of Canadian ...

The Australian Alps Walking Track is a long distance walking trail through the alpine areas of Victoria, New South Wales and ACT. It is 655 km long, starting at Walhalla, Victoria and running through to Tharwa, ACT near Canberra. The track weaves mainly through Australian national parks, such as Alpine National Park and Kosciuszko National Park, though it is not exclusively restricted to national parks. It ascends many peaks including Mount Kosciuszko, Mount Bogong, and Bimberi Peak, the highest points in N.S.W., Victoria, and the A.C.T. respectively. The AAWT crosses exposed high plains including the Victorian Bogong High Plains and the Main Range in NSW. To walk the whole trail can take between 5 and 8 weeks. Food drops or a support crew are necessary, as the trail passes through no towns, although it passes close to the ski resorts of Mt Hotham, Falls Creek, Mt Baw Baw, Thredbo, Charlotte Pass and Perisher. It has been signposted for part of its length in a tri-state agreement. However, most ...

For the most part, Australian general practitioners do not have a clear idea of how the health care system works and how family medicine is practised in the United States of America. We hear that despite the enormous and rising cost (currently $US2.5 trillion per year) many people in the USA still have poor access to health care. We also hear that from the providers point of view, managed care interferes with clinical freedom and the patient-doctor relationship. Are these accurate impressions? How does family medicine in the USA compare to Australia and are there lessons for us in how they do things? | RACGP
The Australian Health Policy Collaboration (AHPC) at Victoria University is calling for a concerted government approach to reduce the amount of salt in packaged food following new research showing some meals contain more than the maximum recommended 5 grams daily salt intake in a single serve.. Rosemary Calder, Director of the Australian Health Policy Collaboration (AHPC), said reducing the amount of salt in processed products using reformulation could save about 3500 lives each year and prevent chronic diseases including kidney, stroke and heart disease.. "Food reformulation is effective," she said. "We have seen how mandatory folic acid fortification in bread has significantly prevented cases of neural tube defects such as spina bifida.. "Many people do not know how much salt they are consuming and may feel that they are taking a healthier option by choosing pre-packaged meals but instead are putting themselves at risk without realising it.". The average adult salt consumption is 8.1 grams per ...

Breastfeeding is widely accepted as an important public health issue for babies and their mothers. Yet, despite this, Australia continues to struggle with reaching global targets for breastfeeding indicators. In 2007, the Best Start Parliamentary Inquiry Report was released and set the stage for the Australian National Breastfeeding Strategy [2010-2015), which was announced in November 2009, with the vision to increase Australias breastfeeding rates of infants at 6 months of age and beyond. The aim of this research project was to explore the perspectives of key stakeholders in the field of infant feeding in Australia on the implementation of the strategy, barriers and enablers to its successful implementation and actions that were still needed ...

Aims A very limited number of prospective studies have reported conflicting data on the relation between heart rate and diabetes risk. Our aim therefore was to determine in a large, national, population-based cohort if heart rate predicts the development of diabetes. Methods The Australian Diabetes Obesity and Lifestyle study followed up 6537 people over 5years. Baseline measurements included questionnaires, anthropometrics and blood and urine collection. Heart rate was recorded in beats per min (Dinamap). An oral glucose tolerance test was performed at baseline and follow-up, and diabetes was defined using World Health Organization criteria. Results A total of 5817 participants were eligible for analysis, 221 of whom developed diabetes. Compared with participants with a heart rate ,60bmin1, those with a heart rate 80bmin1 were more likely to develop diabetes (odds ratio1.89, 95%CI 1.073.35) over 5years, independent of traditional risk factors. This relationship was highly significant, ...

at Radboud University Nijmegen in The Netherlands; Professor of Primary Health Care Research at the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia; and Past President of WONCA. On a global scale, research in family medicine and primary health care appears to develop slowly and hesitantly, certainly in light of its contribution to education. This difficult state of affairs is mirrored in substantial international differences in research facilities: few countries can boast the visionary funding policies of Canada or Australia, or the inclusive research programming of universities in the Netherlands and the UK. The research grass often looks greener on the other side of a border, and this tends to trigger contemplation of what might have been - along with lamentations of deprived opportunities.. Yet, there IS a parallel primary health care research reality to enjoy. Italian family physicians have been able to publish their research in the highest impact journals, Brazilian universities are ...

The Overview of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health status 2015 provides a comprehensive summary of the most recent indicators of the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The Overview shows that the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continues to improve slowly and that there have been declines in infant mortality rates and an increase in life expectancy. There have also been improvements in a number of areas contributing to health status such as increased immunisation coverage and a slight decrease in the prevalence of tobacco use among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.. The Overview, which draws on the most up-to-date, authoritative sources and undertakes some special analyses, is freely available on the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet web resource, along with downloadable PowerPoint presentations of key facts, tables and figures. It is an important part of the HealthInfoNets commitment to collaborative knowledge ...
The importance of leadership and participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, including children and young people, in policy development, system monitoring, service design, program evaluation and at the level of individual cases has been emphasised repeatedly (Cummins, Scott, & Scales, 2012; McGuinness & Leckning, 2013; Northern Territory Government, 2010; SNAICC, 2013; United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, 2012). This has included calls for the expansion in the roles of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander agencies in child protection matters, oversight by Aboriginal Childrens Commissioners and community involvement in determining priorities for local action and family decision-making approaches that emphasise family involvement in decision-making. Combining decision-making authority for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander agencies and individuals with the delivery of culturally based programs (e.g., Indigenous parenting programs), identification and ...

The PBAC did not recommend the inclusion of the 4CMenB vaccine on the National Immunisation Program Schedule for the prevention of meningococcal B disease in infants and adolescents. The PBAC considered the burden of meningococcal disease, the public concern about rapidly developing and often fatal infection, and that the development of the proposed vaccine may represent a technical advance in the field of vaccinology. The PBAC concluded that, over the first 5 years of the requested NIP listing as proposed by the sponsor: over 4 million children and adolescents would be vaccinated costing the government over $400 million, estimated to prevent 224 cases of invasive meningococcal disease, 9 deaths due to meningococcal B disease, and 93 patients with sequelae. However, the PBAC considered that there was a limited demonstration of and multiple uncertainties in relation to the clinical effectiveness of the vaccine against the disease when delivered in a vaccination program. In addition, the PBAC ...
EXTRACT: Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) are potent greenhouse gases (GHGs), which can be collectively described as Kyoto Protocol synthetic GHGs (KP-SGGs). HFCs are used extensively in Australia, largely in air conditioning and refrigeration, initially as ozone-friendly replacements for chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs). Minor uses of HFCs in Australia are as aerosol propellants, including metered dose inhalers (MDIs), as foam blowing agents and in fire extinguishers. PFCs are a by-product of the production of aluminium in Australia and overseas and, in addition, are used overseas in the electronics industry during the manufacture of integrated circuits and plasma screens. Refrigeration represents a very minor use of PFCs in Australia and overseas. Sulfur hexafluoride is used extensively in the electricity distribution industry, both in Australia and overseas, for dielectric insulation ...

... first appears in Greek philosophy in the writings of Heraclitus and his doctrine of panta rhei (everything flows). Heraclitus was famous for his insistence on ever-present change as being the fundamental essence of the universe, as stated in the famous saying, "No man ever steps in the same river twice"[24] This is commonly considered to be a key contribution in the development of the philosophical concept of becoming, as contrasted with "being", and has sometimes been seen in a dialectical relationship with Parmenides' statement that "whatever is, is, and what is not cannot be", the latter being understood as a key contribution in the development of the philosophical concept of being. For this reason, Parmenides and Heraclitus are commonly considered to be two of the founders of ontology. Scholars have generally believed that either Parmenides was responding to Heraclitus, or Heraclitus to Parmenides, though opinion on who was responding to whom has varied over the course of the ...

During the early 1600s,[14] about sixty French families were established in Acadia. They developed friendly relations with the peoples of the Wabanaki Confederacy (particularly the regional Mi'kmaq), learning their hunting and fishing techniques developed for local conditions. The Acadians lived mainly in the coastal regions of the Bay of Fundy; they reclaimed farming land from the sea through building dikes to control water and drain certain wetlands. Living in a contested borderland region between French Canada (modern Quebec) and the British territories on New England and the coast, the Acadians often became entangled in the conflict between the powers. Their competition in Europe played out in North America as well. Over a period of seventy-four years, six wars took place in Acadia and Nova Scotia, in which the Wabanaki Confederacy and some Acadians fought to keep the British from taking over the region (See the four French and Indian Wars as well as Father Rale's War and Father Le Loutre's ...
