Recruiting minority cancer patients into cancer clinical trials: a pilot project involving the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group and the National Medical Association. (1/572)

PURPOSE: Minority accrual onto clinical trials is of significant interest to cooperative oncology study groups. The Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) conducted a study to identify barriers and solutions to African American accrual onto clinical trials. METHODS: We hypothesize that the National Medical Association (NMA) might provide insight into ways to increase minority participation and that ECOG might facilitate that participation. Four sites were selected in which NMA chapters existed and ECOG main institutions with less than half of the corresponding percentage of minorities in their communities entered trials for 1992. Fifteen workshops were conducted using discussions and open-ended, self-administered questionnaires. RESULTS: Seventy percent of NMA physicians cited mistrust of the research centers, fear of losing patients, and a lack of respect from ECOG institutions as the most important barriers to minority cancer patient referrals, compared with 30% for ECOG physicians. Sixty-nine percent of NMA and 43% of ECOG physicians cited a lack of information about specific trials. Nearly half of NMA physicians (47%) cited a lack of minority investigators as a barrier, compared with 4% of ECOG physicians. Solutions by both groups were improved communication (73%) and culturally relevant educational materials (40%). ECOG physicians cited more minority outreach staff as a potential solution (22% v 6%). NMA physicians cited increased involvement of referring physicians (44% v4%). CONCLUSION: NMA physicians who serve a significant sector of the African American population demonstrated a willingness to participate and work with a cooperative group effort to increase participation of minority patients and investigators.  (+info)

Lack of knowledge in health professionals: a barrier to providing information to patients? (2/572)

OBJECTIVE: To assess obstetricians' and midwives' knowledge of routine prenatal screening tests for fetal abnormality and factors associated with such knowledge. DESIGN: Questionnaire assessment of antenatal clinic staff. SETTING: Six hospitals within the United Kingdom (four district general hospitals in London, one district general hospital in Wales, and one teaching hospital in Wales), offering routine prenatal screening tests. SUBJECTS: 29 obstetricians and 97 midwives were invited to participate, of whom 21 and 70 respectively responded to the questionnaire. MAIN MEASURES: Knowledge of prenatal tests, according to 19 item multiple choice questionnaire, reluctance to disclose uncertainty, and clinical experience. RESULTS: The overall response rate was 72% (91/126). In all, 43% of midwives and 14% of obstetricians obtained correct responses on fewer than half the items. Reluctance to disclose uncertainty to patients was associated in obstetricians with having less knowledge about prenatal testing (r = -0.50; p < 0.025, Pearson product moment correlation) and in midwives with more clinical experience (r = 0.43; p < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Lack of knowledge and greater clinical experience seem to be important barriers to providing patients with information about prenatal screening tests.  (+info)

Appropriateness of Hispanic print materials: a content analysis. (3/572)

Hispanic women living in the US have a higher rate of later-stage diagnosis of breast cancer, thereby decreasing their chances of surviving the disease. Research shows print materials are more heavily relied on than any other medium to inform this population about early detection and treatment of the disease. Hispanics, moreover, are more likely to read English at below the fourth-grade level than the general US population and have a lower educational attainment than that of non-Hispanic whites. This paper discusses the results of a content analysis of 26 national print breast cancer educational artifacts distributed to Hispanic women. The purpose was to assess the linguistic appropriateness and cultural sensitivity of the materials in efforts to establish preliminary guidelines for the development of future materials. The author concluded that though many of the artifacts displayed elements of cultural competency, all 26 failed to include components essential to reaching and impacting the designated target audience. Even more significant was a survey of health clinics nationwide that determined the 26 print materials as the most heavily relied upon to provide Hispanic women with information on breast cancer.  (+info)

The use of formal and informal services for antenatal care and malaria treatment in rural Uganda. (4/572)

The study aimed to analyze reasons for the use or non-use of antenatal care services and malaria treatment among pregnant women living in rural areas in Uganda. Focus group discussions with pregnant women, in-depth interviews with key informants (Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs) and health workers) and a structured questionnaire administered to pregnant women were used to collect the relevant information. Antenatal care attendance was irregular and few women knew that the purpose of attending antenatal care was to monitor both the growth of the baby and the health status of the woman. Parity significantly influenced antenatal care attendance, but level of education, religion and marital status did not. Fifty-five per cent of the women stated that they had delivered outside the formal health delivery system despite antenatal care attendance. All women in their second pregnancy had delivered their first child in the village, despite TBA training to the contrary. Malaria as perceived by pregnant women is common and multiple health service providers are used for its treatment. About 66% of the mothers reported having suffered from malaria during the current pregnancy; of these more than half had received treatment outside the formal health delivery system. Self-treatment with drugs bought from ordinary shops was commonly reported. Nearly all women (93.3%) knew about the antimalarial drug chloroquine and 83% thought that it was used for the treatment of malaria, not for its prevention. Some women believed that the drug could cause abortion. Health seeking behaviour was influenced by several factors, including the perceived high cost of antenatal care services, of conducting a delivery and treatment, and perceived inadequacy of services provided by the formal health system. Inadequacy of formal health services was perceived by users to be partly due to understaffing and to irregular supply of essential drugs. Intensive health education to pregnant women on the safety of chloroquine use in pregnancy, the importance and the need for regular antenatal care attendance are recommended. In addition, training of more TBAs and continued educational efforts to upgrade their knowledge, regular and adequate supply of essential drugs, and free health services for high-risk groups such as pregnant women are recommended to improve antenatal care services and drug prophylaxis use in pregnancy.  (+info)

Barriers to meeting the mental health needs of the Chinese community. (5/572)

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to identify the barriers encountered by Chinese people with mental health needs in England which hindered their obtaining appropriate help from the National Health Service (NHS). METHODS: Attenders at Chinese community centres in health authority districts with resident Chinese population in excess of 2000 were invited to fill in a 12-item Chinese Health Questionnaire (12-CHQ). Individuals who scored two or above, indicating a high probability of a mental health problem, were invited to undertake a semi-structured interview. RESULTS: A total of 401 completed the 12-CHQ. Eighty-six (21.4 per cent) screened positive and 71 (82.6 per cent) agreed to be interviewed. Although 70 (98.6 per cent) were registered with a general practitioner (GP), there were long delays before they made contact with health professionals, and the GP was the first port of call for help in only 27 (38.6 per cent) interviewees. Fifty-two (74.3 per cent) had encountered difficulties when they sought professional help. The main barriers were language, interviewees' perceptions of symptoms as somatic rather than psychiatric in origin, lack of knowledge about statutory services, and lack of access to bilingual health professionals. Doctors, particularly GPs, were pivotal in the management of their conditions. The majority were prescribed psychiatric medication with only a small number in contact with community psychiatric services. Unemployment and social exclusion were common. Stigma associated with mental illness and limited knowledge in the community were identified as the causes for the widespread discrimination experienced by the interviewees. CONCLUSION: The mental health needs of these Chinese people were not adequately met by statutory services, nor could they rely on family and friends for care and support. Training for health service staff and access to health advocates are essential to maximize the effectiveness of health professional-patient contacts. The promotion of better understanding of mental illness by the Chinese community is important, and greater flexibility within the NHS is required to ensure those professionals with bilingual skills are used to the best effect.  (+info)

Do physicians spend more time with non-English-speaking patients? (6/572)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether physicians at a general internal medicine clinic spend more time with non-English-speaking patients. DESIGN: A time-motion study comparing physician time spent with non-English-speaking patients and time spent with English-speaking patients during 5 months of observation. We also tested physicians' perceptions of their time use with a questionnaire. SETTING: Primary care internal medicine clinic at a county hospital. PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS: One hundred sixty-six established clinic patients, of whom 57 were non-English speaking and 109 were English speaking, and 15 attending physicians and 8 third-year resident physicians. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Outcome measures included total patient time in clinic, wait for first nurse or physician contact, time in contact with the nurse or physician, physician time spent on the visit, and physician perceptions of time use with non-English-speaking patients. After adjustment for demographic and comorbidity variables, non-English-speaking and English-speaking patients did not differ on any time-motion variables, including physician time spent on the visit (26.0 vs 25.8 minutes). A significant number of clinic physicians believed that they spent more time during a visit with non-English-speaking patients (85.7%) and needed more time to address important issues during a visit (90. 4%), (both p <.01). Physicians did not perceive differences in the amount they accomplished during a visit with non-English-speaking patients. CONCLUSIONS: There were no differences in the time these physicians spent providing care to non-English-speaking patients and English-speaking patients. An important limitation of this study is that we were unable to measure quality of care provided or patients' satisfaction with their care. Physicians may believe that they are spending more time with non-English-speaking patients because of the challenges of language and cultural barriers.  (+info)

How does a change in the administration method affect the reliability of the COOP/WONCA Charts? World Organization of National Colleges, Academies and Academic Associations of General Practitioners/Family Physicians. (7/572)

BACKGROUND: An interviewer is often needed to administer the COOP/WONCA Charts to Chinese patients, and this may affect the reliability of results. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to find out the reliability of the COOP/WONCA Charts administered by an interviewer, and whether a change in the interviewer or administration method would affect the results. METHODS: We carried out a cross-sectional test-retest study on 487 Chinese adult patients attending a family medicine clinic in Hong Kong. The COOP/WONCA Charts were administered by the same interviewer, two different interviewers or self-completion and interviewer administration, on test and retest. The random, inter-observer and inter-method variances were compared with the inter-subject variance. The reliability coefficient of each COOP/WONCA Chart was calculated for each method of administration. RESULTS: Random errors could change the scores by 0.57-1.04, inter-observer variations could change the scores of four charts by 0.72-0.80, and a change in the method could change the physical fitness score by 1.79 and the daily activities score by 1.31, on a five-point scale. The reliability coefficients of the six COOP/WONCA Charts were 0.68-0.92 for one interviewer, 0.59-0.82 for two interviewers and 0.46-0.81 for two methods. CONCLUSION: The Chinese COOP/WONCA Charts were reliable in detecting real differences when administered by an interviewer. A change in the method of administration significantly decreased the reliability of the results. The use of more than one method of data collection in the same survey should be discouraged.  (+info)

"First aid for scalds" campaign: reaching Sydney's Chinese, Vietnamese, and Arabic speaking communities. (8/572)

OBJECTIVES: As a serious yet preventable problem, scald injuries in children have been a priority for prevention in Australia and other developed countries. Not only can the occurrence of scalds be prevented, but immediate first aid treatment offers an effective method for secondary prevention, reducing the severity of scalds. Despite the success of scald prevention initiatives, local evidence suggested that first aid knowledge was lacking in some minority ethnic groups. To redress this gap, the "First Aid for Scalds" campaign for those from a non-English speaking background was specifically targeted to three ethnic groups (Vietnamese, Chinese, and Arabic), with the aim of increasing the proportions of parents and caregivers who had correct knowledge of first aid treatment for scalds. The primary strategy was a media campaign, including advertisements on ethnic radio and in ethnic newspapers. METHODS: The evaluation design included formative research and impact evaluation. The impact evaluation study involved random population based telephone surveys with each of the three language groups, before and after the campaign, to assess the reach and effectiveness of the campaign. RESULTS: After the campaign, there were significant increases in the proportion of people who knew the correct first aid treatment for scalds. There were substantial variations in campaign recall and knowledge between each of the three language groups. The largest improvement was found in the Vietnamese group. CONCLUSION: The association between campaign recall and increase in correct knowledge, and the absence of any similar interventions during the campaign period, give credence to the conclusion that the changes observed were a result of the campaign. The results demonstrate the value of community based injury prevention campaigns specifically targeting linguistically diverse communities.  (+info)

Concept paper for linguistic access grants, developed by AAPCHO.. Communication between patients and their health care providers is fundamental for ensuring quality health care and developing trusting relationships. It is an important component of patient satisfaction, compliance, and outcomes.1 Although challenging for all populations, communication is especially a barrier for limited English proficient (LEP) patients, and the lack of accurate oral interpretation with this population results in decreased quality of care, increased medical errors, greater disparities, and diminished access.. In 1990 there were over 32 million Americans who spoke a language other than English at home. By 2000, that number had increased to almost 45 million.2 Of these Americans who speak another language than English at home, high percentages of various ethnic groups are LEP. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 77.8% of Latinos in the United States speak a language other than English, and ...

Why are interpreters an important part of modern healthcare provision?In todays society, there is an increasing need for mental health professionals to work with interpreters, yet coverage of this subject in the existing literature is scarce. Working with Interpreters in Mental Health gives an insight into the issues and problems of professionals working with interpreters in the mental health field.Informed by theoretical, research and practice considerations, Working with Interpreters in Mental Health helps practitioners to develop better ways of helping service users who need an interpreter. Combining contributions from a number of different disciplines, this book discusses: * interpreters in medical consultations* issues of language provision in health care services* the application of theoretical frameworks to the work with interpreters* the work of interpreters in a variety of practical settings.Whilst the focus the placed within a mental health context, many of the issues raised apply equally to

Patients with language barriers had an ≈30% reduced odds of death at 7 and 30 days, and a ,20% reduced odds of death at 1 year, even after adjusting for baseline demographic and clinical differences between groups. This reduction in mortality risk was attenuated by differences between groups in the desire for aggressive versus supportive medical care, and previous studies have suggested that early stroke mortality is strongly sensitive to patient/family preferences for withdrawal of care.13 As further evidence of this preference for active treatment, patients with language barriers were more likely to be discharged with a residual neurological deficit, had longer lengths of stay, and were more likely to be discharged to home or to a rehabilitation hospital rather than to another acute care or a long-term care institution. Patients with language barriers also performed better on several in-hospital quality of care markers: they were more likely to receive timely brain imaging, and were more ...

First, basic scientists and clinicians dont speak the same language. Years of specialized training lead to two dialects, each loaded with arcane terminology, acronyms and tribal jargon that bind members of one group together but are unintelligible to outsiders (Greene, 2011). As a result, neither group can comprehend the others published literature; each group may even have trouble following the others conversations. This communication rift is established during formal schooling and heightened as medical and PhD students enter the clinical and laboratory realms, respectively. The well-reasoned underlying principle is that PhD students need to understand how (and how well) scientific investigations have revealed the facts, whereas medical students need to integrate basic and clinical science facts in the service of patient care. An unintended but predictable consequence of these different approaches is that clinicians are less likely to appreciate the research behind advances in medical ...
By Batt, Ellen G Since implementation of No Child Left Behind (NCLB) mandates, much attention has been focused on the education of the rapidly growing English language learners (ELLs) in U.S. schools. Disaggregated accountability reports for subgroups are required as a result of NCLB. Schools must report yearly progress in ELL students growth in English proficiency, reading, and math tests, and schools must assure that all students are taught by highly qualified teachers. Rural school districts are especially challenged to provide inservice teachers with face to face professional development to meet the needs of increasing numbers of English learners (Sehlaoui, Seguin, & Kreicker, 2005). Background Demographics During the academic year 2003-2004, 5.5 million students in the U.

One of the reasons for using relatives as ad hoc interpreters is that it is difficult to find professional, trained interpreters in the relevant languages, dialects and varieties[2], and at the exact time that they are needed. In some countries in Europe certain dialects, with limited numbers of older speakers, are gradually dying out, but in most European and non-European countries many dialects and varieties are spoken. In such cases, it is essential that interpreters speak and understand the actual dialect that a person uses. In addition, some people from minority ethnic groups would prefer to have an interpreter of their own age and background (Mohammed 2017). Due to a general shortage of suitable and qualified interpreters, and in some cases the limited number of interpreters who are fluent in a particular dialect, there is a risk of professional interpreters being members of the same minority ethnic community and of people in need of their services not wanting to have them as interpreters ...

Overcoming linguistic inequities for patients with limited English proficiency requires that providers create effective systems for medical interpretation.
Amongst the communication problems identified in the community based study led by Rachel Howard from the School of Pharmacy, University of Reading, UK was insufficient patient counselling about their medicines, the reluctance of patients to ask health professionals about their medicines and an assumption by some community pharmacists that the patient would have received some medicines counselling from their GP. Some patients couldnt recall the information theyd been given or had difficulty in hearing what was said. The research also highlighted problems encountered in accessing complex and up to date patient medical and medication records. This affected both GPs working out of hours and community pharmacists contributing to a knowledge gap which in turn led to prescribing and monitoring errors. The causes of PDRAs are multifaceted concluded Rachel Howard. Technical solutions such as computerised assisted prescribing and the NHS patient care record are unlikely to be sufficient on their own ...

Abstract: Individuals with limited English proficiency face significant barriers in accessing health care, as do individuals who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex or asexual. These barriers are heightened when a person is both LEP and LGBTQIA. While societal views on LGBTQIA people vary greatly, recent events in the U.S. like marriage equality have brought more visibility to this marginalized population. Interpreters should be prepared to handle sensitive (and possibly uncomfortable) discussions between patients and their providers.

When faced with an abrasive family member, interpreters can be tempted to go on the defensive. Here are some tips for interpreters to keep their cool.
Perl 5.6.0 introduces the beginnings of support for running multiple interpreters concurrently in different threads. In conjunction with the perl_clone() API call, which can be used to selectively duplicate the state of any given interpreter, it is possible to compile a piece of code once in an interpreter, clone that interpreter one or more times, and run all the resulting interpreters in distinct threads.. On the Windows platform, this feature is used to emulate fork() at the interpreter level. See perlfork for details about that.. This feature is still in evolution. It is eventually meant to be used to selectively clone a subroutine and data reachable from that subroutine in a separate interpreter and run the cloned subroutine in a separate thread. Since there is no shared data between the interpreters, little or no locking will be needed (unless parts of the symbol table are explicitly shared). This is obviously intended to be an easy-to-use replacement for the existing threads ...

This study aims to explore limitations with the Malnutrition Screening Tool in identifying malnutrition risk, in a cohort of 3,033 adult Australian medical and surgical hospital inpatients. Seventy-two percent of patients were screened; illness and medical care limited access to others. Malnutrition risk (16.5%; n = 501) was found in all age groups with a trend to higher risk in medical wards; 10% (n = 300) of patients with communication barriers were excluded. Systematic screening increased dietitians referrals by 39%. Further research is required to enable screening of all patients, including those with communication issues with an easy to use valid tool.

That is, instead of using the original executable files segment images, the system composes a memory image for the interpreter. It then is the interpreters responsibility to receive control from the system and provide an environment for the application program. As ``Process Initialization in Chapter 3 of the processor supplement mentions, the interpreter receives control in one of two ways. First, it may receive a file descriptor to read the executable file, positioned at the beginning. It can use this file descriptor to read and/or map the executable files segments into memory. Second, depending on the executable file format, the system may load the executable file into memory instead of giving the interpreter an open file descriptor. With the possible exception of the file descriptor, the interpreters initial process state matches what the executable file would have received. The interpreter itself may ...

API women face numerous barriers to health care, including lack of health insurance, weak enforcement of regulations that mandate interpretation and translation services, and health professionals who are untrained to serve diverse communities. Furthermore, cultural ignorance and discrimination by providers lead many women to distrust the medical system. A grave consequence is that API women do not use reproductive health services adequately. They have an extremely low rate of pap exams, resulting in a disproportionately high incidence of cervical cancer. Vietnamese have the highest rate of all ethnic groups, which is almost five times higher than white women. Hazardous, low-wage employment. Barriers to health care are extremely problematic, considering API women are concentrated in low wage jobs with hazardous work environments and no employer-based health insurance or worker protections. For women who are undocumented or limited English proficient, there are few other opportunities for work ...

The intervention: Often, misunderstandings and conflicts arise when patients and health care professionals come together to choose an appropriate treatment plan. Such problems are intensified when patients and their family members struggle to communicate in English or have cultural beliefs that clash with modern medicine. Filmmakers Maren Grainger-Monsen, M.D., and Julia Haslett of the Stanford University Biomedical Center document the experiences of four patients as they negotiate the U.S. health care system. In a series of four films, called Worlds Aparts, they dramatize communication between patients and their doctors, tensions between modern medicine and cultural beliefs, and the ongoing problems of racial and ethnic discrimination. To do so, the filmmakers followed four individuals from their homes, neighborhoods, and places of worship to community clinics and hospitals.

Spanish is currently the primary language for 11% of the US population overall, and these rates are much higher in some areas of the country. In Los Angeles County, for example, Spanish is the primary language of 44.5% of residents. This is only expected to increase - the Latino population is expected to triple in size between 2005 and 2050, with Latinos comprising 29 percent of the US population in 2050. But while Latin Americans comprise the largest minority group in the US, they receive disproportionately low access to lower quality health care, education and social services.

Multi-lingual search and retrieval of digital content. Embodiments are generally directed to methods and systems for creating an English language database that associates non-English terms with English terms in multiple categories of metadata. Language experts use an interface to create equivalencies between non-English terms and English terms, Boolean expressions, synonyms, and other forms of search terms. Language dictionaries and other sources also create equivalencies. The database is used to evaluate non-English search terms submitted by a user, and to determine English search terms that can be used to perform a search for content. The multiple categories of metadata may comprise structured data, such as keywords of a structured vocabulary, and/or unstructured data, such as captions, titles, descriptions, etc. Weighting and/or prioritization can be applied to the search terms, to the process of searching the multiple categories, and/or to the search results, to rank the search results.
