Fruit and vegetable consumption and prevention of cancer: the Black Churches United for Better Health project. (1/47)

OBJECTIVES: This study assessed the effects of the Black Churches United for Better Health project on increasing fruit and vegetable consumption among rural African American church members in North Carolina. METHODS: Ten counties comprising 50 churches were pair matched and randomly assigned to either intervention or delayed intervention (no program until after the follow-up survey) conditions. A multicomponent intervention was conducted over approximately 20 months. A total of 2519 adults (77.3% response rate) completed both the baseline and 2-year follow-up interviews. RESULTS: The 2 study groups consumed similar amounts of fruits and vegetables at baseline. AT the 2-year follow-up, the intervention group consumed 0.85 (SE = 0.12) servings more than the delayed intervention group (P < .0001). The largest increases were observed among people 66 years or older (1 serving), those with education beyond high school (0.92 servings), those widowed or divorced (0.96 servings), and those attending church frequently (1.3 servings). The last improvement occurred among those aged 18 to 37 years and those who were single. CONCLUSIONS: The project was a successful model for achieving dietary change among rural African Americans.  (+info)

Maintaining mammography adherence through telephone counseling in a church-based trial. (2/47)

OBJECTIVES: This study assessed the effectiveness of telephone counseling in a church-based mammography promotion intervention trial. METHODS: Thirty churches were randomized to telephone counseling and control conditions; telephone interview data were used in assessing intervention effects on mammography adherence. Separate analyses were conducted for baseline-adherent participants (maintaining adherence) and baseline-nonadherent participants (conversion to adherence). RESULTS: Year 1 follow-up data indicated that the telephone counseling intervention maintained mammography adherence among baseline-adherent participants and reduced the nonadherence rate from 23% to 16%. CONCLUSIONS: Partnerships between the public health and faith communities are potentially effective conduits to promote maintenance of widely endorsed health behaviors such as regular cancer screening.  (+info)

The paediatrician and the rabbi. (3/47)

OBJECTIVES: During recent decades, rabbis in Israel have been playing an increasing role in the consultation of patients or their families on medical issues. The study was performed to determine the attitude of physicians to rabbinical consultation by parents of sick children for purposes of basic medical decision making. DESIGN AND SETTING: A questionnaire was prepared which contained questions regarding physicians' reactions to specific medical situations as well as their demographic data. The study participants included all the available physicians who were employed in the study period at one tertiary medical centre in Israel, which is not associated with any religious organisation. The questionnaire was presented personally to all of the physicians who were available for the study. RESULTS: Between 63% and 77% of the respondents were accepting of rabbinical consultation in regard to medical decisions. Nevertheless, in cases of divergence from accepted medical practice and in emergencies, almost all stated they would take measures to resist the rabbi's advice. This attitude did not correlate with the physician's age, religious status or experience in medicine. CONCLUSIONS: Israeli physicians respect rabbis' suggestions in the area of medical decision making, though they would not let a rabbi's advice interfere with their decisions if they believed the rabbi's opinion went against medical need. In order to prevent an untoward effect of the rabbinical involvement in medicine, rules should be set to establish norms for rabbi-physician collaboration.  (+info)

Role of Black churches in health promotion programs: lessons from the Los Angeles Mammography Promotion in Churches Program. (4/47)

OBJECTIVES: This article assesses pastor-level factors that affect the successful recruitment and implementation of community-based health promotion programs in Black churches. METHODS: Semistructured interviews with 16 pastors of Black churches were analyzed for content. RESULTS: We found that although the involvement of Black pastors in an array of secular activities makes them open to participate in health programs, their overcommitment to other issues can negatively influence their ability to participate. Second, although Black pastors appreciate being included in and benefiting from health research, minorities' history of being underserved and exploited can lead to suspiciousness and reluctance to participate. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that those interested in developing church-based health programs in the Black community must be attuned to how the same factors can both facilitate and hinder a program's development.  (+info)

Alternative mental health services: the role of the black church in the South. (5/47)

OBJECTIVES: This study determined the extent to which churches in the South were providing mental health and social services to congregations and had established linkages with formal systems of care. METHODS: A computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI) survey was conducted with pastors from 269 Southern churches. RESULTS: Black churches reported providing many more services than did White churches, regardless of urban or rural location. Few links between churches and formal provider systems were found, irrespective of the location--urban or rural--or racial composition of the churches. CONCLUSIONS: Results are discussed in terms of the potential for linking faith communities and formal systems of care, given the centrality of the Black church in historical context.  (+info)

Patterns and correlates of contacting clergy for mental disorders in the United States. (6/47)

OBJECTIVE: To present nationally representative data on the part played by clergy in providing treatment to people with mental disorders in the United States. DATA SOURCES: The National Comorbidity Survey (NCS), a nationally representative general population survey of 8,098 respondents ages 15-54. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey. DATA COLLECTION: A modified version of the Composite International Diagnostic Interview was used to assess DSM-III-R mental disorders. Reports were obtained on age of onset of disorders, age of first seeking treatment, and treatment in the 12 months before interview with each of six types of professionals (clergy, general medical physicians, psychiatrists, other mental health specialists, human services providers, and alternative treatment providers). PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: One-quarter of those who ever sought treatment for mental disorders did so from a clergy member. Although there has been a decline in this proportion between the 1950s (31.3 percent) and the early 1990s (23.5 percent), the clergy continue to be contacted by higher proportions than psychiatrists (16.7 percent) or general medical doctors (16.7 percent). Nearly one-quarter of those seeking help from clergy in a given year have the most seriously impairing mental disorders. The majority of these people are seen exclusively by the clergy, and not by a physician or mental health professional. CONCLUSIONS: The clergy continue to play a crucial role in the U.S. mental health care delivery system. However, interventions appear to be needed to ensure that clergy members recognize the presence and severity of disorders, deliver therapies of sufficient intensity and quality, and collaborate appropriately with health care professionals.  (+info)

Research expectations among African American church leaders in the PRAISE! project: a randomized trial guided by community-based participatory research. (7/47)

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to examine the expectations and satisfaction of pastors and lay leaders regarding a research partnership in a randomized trial guided by community-based participatory research (CBPR) methods. METHODS: Telephone and self-administered print surveys were administered to 78 pastors and lay leaders. In-depth interviews were conducted with 4 pastors after study completion. RESULTS: The combined survey response rate was 65%. Research expectations included honest and frequent communication, sensitivity to the church environment, interaction as partners, and results provided to the churches. Satisfaction with the research partnership was high, but so was concern about the need for all research teams to establish trust with church partners. CONCLUSIONS: Pastors and lay leaders have high expectations regarding university obligations in research partnerships. An intervention study based on CBPR methods was able to meet most of these expectations.  (+info)

Moving beyond attitudinal barriers: understanding African Americans' support for organ and tissue donation. (8/47)

PURPOSE: African Americans are disproportionately represented among individuals in need of an organ transplant, due in part to low donation rates in this population. The research literature has focused on attitudinal barriers to donation; however, the current study explores individual experiences and values that contribute to supportive attitudes toward organ and tissue donation. PROCEDURES: Focus group participants were 26 African-American clergymen and 42 African-American parishioners recruited from seven Christian churches in the metro Atlanta area. FINDINGS: Although a large number of participants had previous exposure to organ and tissue donation and transplantation, the majority of these experiences were negative, and participants felt a general fear and lack of knowledge about the process of donation and transplantation. Despite these negative experiences, respondents reported personal values (e.g., the desire to help others and acceptance of group responsibility) and religious values (e.g., the desire to carry out God's will and to have faith in God) that contribute to supportive attitudes toward organ and tissue donation. CONCLUSION: An understanding of supportive attitudes toward donation may help improve the development of effective culturally sensitive intervention messages targeting the African-American religious community with the ultimate goal of increasing the pool of organs available for transplantation.  (+info)

The term "clergy" is not typically used in a medical context, but it does have a general definition that might be helpful to know. Clergy are individuals who are ordained or authorized to perform religious duties and services. They may include priests, ministers, rabbis, imams, and other spiritual leaders.

While the term "clergy" is not a medical term, it is worth noting that members of the clergy may play an important role in the emotional and spiritual well-being of their congregants. They may provide counseling, support, and guidance to individuals who are dealing with illness, grief, or other life challenges. In some cases, they may also work closely with healthcare professionals to help patients and families navigate complex medical decisions and treatments.

Pastoral care in a medical context is a type of support that focuses on the spiritual and emotional well-being of patients, families, and healthcare providers. It involves addressing the non-physical needs of individuals and helping them cope with the challenges of illness, injury, or hospitalization. Pastoral care practitioners may provide counseling, guidance, and advocacy for patients and their families, as well as offer spiritual support through prayer, sacraments, or other religious practices. The goal of pastoral care is to promote healing, comfort, and hope during difficult times. It is often provided by chaplains, clergy members, or other trained professionals who work in hospitals, hospices, clinics, and other healthcare settings.

I am not aware of a medical definition for the term "Bible." The Bible is a religious text that is considered sacred in Christianity. It is composed of two main sections: the Old Testament, which contains writings recognized by Christians as Jewish scripture, and the New Testament, which contains Christian teachings, including the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

While the Bible may be referenced in a medical context, such as in discussions about medical ethics or end-of-life care, it is not a medical term or concept and does not have a specific medical definition.

Religion: This is a complex and multifaceted concept that refers to beliefs, practices, rituals, ethics, worldviews, and moral codes that are often centered around a higher power or supernatural being(s). Religions can provide a sense of community, identity, purpose, and meaning for individuals. They can also influence attitudes, behaviors, values, and emotions.

Psychology: This is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes, including thoughts, feelings, perceptions, memories, motivations, and sensations. It seeks to understand how people interact with their environment, how they process information, and how they make decisions. Psychology also examines the biological, social, developmental, and cultural factors that influence human behavior and mental health.

Religion and Psychology: The intersection of religion and psychology is a growing field of study that explores the complex relationships between religious beliefs, practices, and experiences, and psychological processes, outcomes, and disorders. This field examines how religious beliefs and practices can influence mental health, coping strategies, social support, and well-being, as well as how psychological factors can shape religious attitudes, behaviors, and experiences. It also investigates the potential benefits and risks of religious involvement for mental health, such as the role of religion in promoting resilience and meaning-making versus the potential for religious trauma or conflict. Additionally, this field considers ethical issues related to the integration of religious and psychological approaches to treatment and care.

Christianity is a monotheistic religion based on the life, teachings, and sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. It is one of the largest religions in the world, with followers known as Christians. The fundamental tenets of Christianity include the belief in the Holy Trinity (the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), the divinity of Jesus Christ, the resurrection of Jesus, and the forgiveness of sins through faith in Jesus Christ.

The Christian Bible, consisting of the Old Testament and the New Testament, is considered to be the sacred scripture of Christianity. The New Testament contains four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) that provide accounts of the life, ministry, teachings, miracles, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Other important texts in Christianity include the letters of the Apostles, known as the Epistles, which provide guidance on Christian living and theology.

There are various denominations within Christianity, including Roman Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Oriental Orthodoxy, Anglicanism, Lutheranism, Presbyterianism, Methodism, Baptists, and many others. These denominations may have different beliefs, practices, and organizational structures, but they all share a common belief in the life, teachings, and sacrificial death of Jesus Christ.

It's important to note that while this definition provides an overview of Christianity as a religion, it does not capture the full depth and richness of Christian beliefs, practices, and traditions, which can vary widely among different communities and individuals.

Religion and medicine are two distinct fields that can intersect in various ways. While religion can be defined as a set of beliefs, practices, and rituals related to the divine or supernatural, medicine is concerned with the maintenance of health and the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure of disease, illness, and other physical and mental impairments in humans.

A medical definition of "Religion and Medicine" might refer to the study of the relationship between religious beliefs, practices, and experiences, and health outcomes, healthcare delivery, and medical decision-making. This can include exploring how religious beliefs and practices influence health behaviors, coping mechanisms, social support networks, and access to care, as well as how they shape attitudes towards medical interventions, end-of-life decisions, and bioethical issues.

Religion can also play a role in the provision of healthcare services, such as through faith-based organizations that operate hospitals, clinics, and other health facilities. Additionally, religious leaders and communities may provide spiritual care and support to patients and their families, complementing the medical care provided by healthcare professionals.

Overall, the intersection of religion and medicine is a complex and multifaceted area of study that requires an interdisciplinary approach, drawing on insights from fields such as anthropology, sociology, psychology, theology, and public health.

"Social distancing" is not a term with a specific medical definition. However, in the context of public health and infectious diseases, it generally refers to measures taken to reduce close physical contact between people in order to prevent or slow down the spread of an infectious agent. This can include things like keeping a certain distance from others, avoiding crowded places, and limiting gatherings. The specific recommendations for social distancing can vary depending on the situation and the nature of the infectious agent.

There is no single, widely accepted medical definition of "spirituality." However, in a general sense, spirituality can be described as a person's search for meaning and purpose in life, and the connection they feel to something greater than themselves. This could include a higher power, nature, or the universe. Spirituality can also involve a set of beliefs, values, and practices that are important to a person and help them to find meaning and fulfillment in life.

Some people may view spirituality as an integral part of their religious practice, while others may see it as separate from religion. For some, spirituality may be a deeply personal and private experience, while for others it may involve being part of a community or group.

In healthcare settings, spirituality is often recognized as an important aspect of a person's overall well-being and can play a role in their ability to cope with illness and stress. Healthcare providers may consider a patient's spiritual needs and beliefs when providing care, and may refer patients to chaplains or other spiritual care providers as needed.

Islam is not a medical term. It is a religious term that refers to the monotheistic Abrahamic religion practiced by Muslims, who follow the teachings and guidance of the prophet Muhammad as recorded in the Quran, their holy book. The word "Islam" itself means "submission" in Arabic, reflecting the central tenet of the faith, which is submission to the will of Allah (God).

The practices of Islam include the Five Pillars of Islam, which are: Shahada (faith), Salat (prayer), Zakat (charity), Sawm (fasting during Ramadan), and Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in a lifetime for those who are able).

If you have any further questions about medical terminology or health-related topics, please don't hesitate to ask!

In the context of medicine, a "role" generally refers to the function or position that an individual holds within a healthcare system or team. This could include roles such as:

* Physician
* Nurse
* Allied health professional (e.g., physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech-language pathologist)
* Social worker
* Administrative staff member

Each role comes with its own set of responsibilities and expectations for how the individual in that role will contribute to the overall care and well-being of patients. Effective communication, collaboration, and coordination among team members in their various roles are essential for providing high-quality patient care.
