A blood pressure clinic in a health centre. (1/789)

Following a screening survey for hypertension in Renfrew, a blood pressure clinic was established in a health centre. Three hospital doctors, each working an average of two sessions weekly, saw 368 patients. A specially trained nurse played an important part in the running of the clinic. Attendance of patients was high, and defaulting amongst those needing treatment was low. Blood pressures were well controlled in 75% of the patients. The clinic has proved an acceptable method of managing large numbers of hypertensives without reference to hospital.  (+info)

Indigenous perceptions and quality of care of family planning services in Haiti. (2/789)

This paper presents a method for evaluating and monitoring the quality of care of family planning services. The method was implemented in Haiti by International Planned Parenthood Federation Western Hemisphere Region (IPPF/WHR), the managerial agency for the Private Sector Family Planning Project (PSFPP), which is sponsored by the USAID Mission. The process consists of direct observations of family planning services and clinic conditions by trained Haitian housewives playing the role of 'mystery clients', who visit clinics on a random basis without prior notice. Observations conducted by mystery clients during one year, from April 1990 to April 1991, are presented and illustrate the use of the method. In addition, measurements for rating the acceptability of the services were developed, providing a quantitative assessment of the services based on mystery clients' terms. Statistical results demonstrate that simulated clients ranked some criteria of acceptability higher than others. These criteria are: the interaction provider/client, information adequacy, and competence of the promoter. Likewise, simulated clients' direct observations of the services permitted the identification of deficiencies regarding the quality of care such as the paternalistic attitudes of the medical staff; the lack of competence of promoters; and the lack of informed choice. Based on its reliability since its implementation in 1990 the method has proven to be a useful tool in programme design and monitoring.  (+info)

Micro-level planning using rapid assessment for primary health care services. (3/789)

This paper describes the use of a rapid assessment technique in micro-level planning for primary health care services which has been developed in India. This methodology involves collecting household-level data through a quick sample survey to estimate client needs, coverage of services and unmet need, and using this data to formulate micro-level plans aimed at improving service coverage and quality for a primary health centre area. Analysis of the data helps to identify village level variations in unmet need and develop village profiles from which general interventions for overall improvement of service coverage and targeted interventions for selected villages are identified. A PHC area plan is developed based on such interventions. This system was tried out in 113 villages of three PHC centres of a district in Gujarat state of India. It demonstrated the feasibility and utility of this approach. However, it also revealed the barriers in the institutionalization of the system on a wider scale. The proposed micro-level planning methodology using rapid assessment would improve client-responsiveness of the health care system and provide a basis for increased decentralization. By focusing attention on under-served areas, it would promote equity in the use of health services. It would also help improve efficiency by making it possible to focus efforts on a small group of villages which account for most of the unmet need for services in an area. Thus the proposed methodology seems to be a feasible and an attractive alternative to the current top-down, target-based health planning in India.  (+info)

Community asthma clinics: 1993 survey of primary care by the National Asthma Task Force. (4/789)

OBJECTIVES: To establish a baseline of work done in primary care asthma clinics in the United Kingdom and to assess the degree of clinical delegation to nurses and the appropriateness of their training. DESIGN: Prospective questionnaire survey of asthma care in general practices and a subsidiary survey of all family health services authorities (FHSAs) of the number of asthma clinics in their area. SETTING: All 14,251 general practices in the United Kingdom and 117 FHSAs or health boards (Scotland and Northern Ireland). RESULTS: Questionnaires were returned by 4327 (30.4%) general practices, 54% being completed by practice nurses and 22% by general practitioners; in 24% profession was not stated. In all, 77.2% (3339/4327) of respondents ran an asthma clinic. 60 FHSAs state the number of asthma clinics at the time of the general practice survey (total 3653 clinics); within responding FHSAs 1702 (46.6%) practices running an asthma clinic replied to the general practice survey. Clinics exclusive for patients with asthma mostly occurred in practices with five or more general practitioners (70.2%), compared with single-handed practices (31.7%). The average number of asthma clinics run per practice was five a month; the average duration was 2 hours and 20 minutes. 1131 (48.8%) nurses ran clinics by themselves, 1180 (47.9%) with the doctor, and 39 (1.7%) had no medical input. Comprehensive questioning occurred other than for nasal (872, 26.1%) or oesophageal (335, 10.0%) symptoms and use of aspirin and non-steroidal drugs (1161, 33.4%). Growth in children was measured by only a third of respondents. Of the 1131 nurses who ran clinics alone, 251 (22.2%) did so without formal training entailing assessment. CONCLUSION: Asthma clinics are now common in general practice and much of their work is done by nurses, a significant minority of whom may not have had sufficient training. IMPLICATIONS: As this survey is probably biased toward the more asthma aware practices, greater deficiencies in training and standards may exist in other practices. Further evaluation of the effectiveness of asthma clinics is needed.  (+info)

In this paper we study demand effects of user charges in a district health care system using cross-sectional data from household and facility surveys. The effects are examined in public as well as in private health facilities. We also look briefly at the impact of fees on revenue and service quality in government facilities. During the period of cost-sharing in public clinics, attendance dropped by about 50%. This drop prompted the government to suspend the fees for approximately 20 months. Over the 7 months after suspension of fees, attendance at government health centres increased by 41%. The suspension further caused a notable movement of patients from the private sector to government health facilities. The revenue generated by user fees covered 2.4% of the recurrent health budget. Some 40% of the facilities did not spend the fee revenue they collected, mainly due to cumbersome procedures of expenditure approvals. The paper concludes with lessons from Kenya's experience with user charges.  (+info)

Quality of primary outpatient services in Dar-es-Salaam: a comparison of government and voluntary providers. (6/789)

This study aimed to test whether voluntary agencies provide care of better quality than that provided by government with respect to primary curative outpatient services in Dar-es-Salaam. All non-government primary services were included, and government primary facilities were randomly sampled within the three districts of the city. Details of consultations were recorded and assessed by a panel who classed consultations as adequate, inadequate but serious consequences unlikely, and consultations where deficiencies in the care could have serious consequences. Interpersonal conduct was assessed and exit interviews were conducted. The study found that government registers of non-government 'voluntary' providers actually contained a high proportion of for-profit private providers. Comparisons between facilities showed that care was better overall at voluntary providers, but that there was a high level of inadequate care at both government and non-government providers.  (+info)

Measuring time utilization in rural health centres. (7/789)

OBJECTIVES: During the recent re-design of the primary health care system in Cameroon a time-motion study was undertaken to determine how health workers at rural health centres use their time before redefining their roles. METHODS: The study developed a simple, effective and inexpensive tool which uses the activity sampling technique, and was applied to 20 health centres with a total of 19,080 observations being made of 64 health workers who represented all grades of worker in the government health services. RESULTS: The study developed a clear picture of how health centre staff apportion their time, and how the division of labour and tasks is carried out in a rural health centre. It found that only 27% of health workers' time is currently being spent on productive, health-related activities, and of this time, the largest proportion is spent on curative, clinical work. Less than 1% of health workers' time is spent on preventive and outreach activities. DISCUSSION: This study has developed a simple and inexpensive tool which can be used in any health facility to determine how health-related activities are carried out. This is an important step if changes in the delivery structure are to be made, because it establishes the discrepancy between expected and actual behaviour, and provides an important baseline for the evaluation of the effectiveness of any changes that are introduced within the system.  (+info)

Primary health care, community participation and community-financing: experiences of two middle hill villages in Nepal. (8/789)

Although community involvement in health related activities is generally acknowledged by international and national health planners to be the key to the successful organization of primary health care, comparatively little is known about its potential and limitations. Drawing on the experiences of two middle hill villages in Nepal, this paper reports on research undertaken to compare and contrast the scope and extent of community participation in the delivery of primary health care in a community run and financed health post and a state run and financed health post. Unlike many other health posts in Nepal these facilities do provide effective curative services, and neither of them suffer from chronic shortage of drugs. However, community-financing did not appear to widen the scope and the extent of participation. Villagers in both communities relied on the health post for the treatment of less than one-third of symptoms, and despite the planners' intentions, community involvement outside participation in benefits was found to be very limited.  (+info)

Because of the shortage of qualified health care administrators who are members of minority groups, many neighborhood health centers, organized as a result of the Great Society legislation of the 1960s, suffered from their staffs lack of administrative skills and from rapid turnover as staff members gained experience and moved upward to other jobs. To rectify this shortage, the National Association of Neighborhood Health Centers was funded to offer masters degree programs at the University of Michigan and the University of Southern California. These on job/on campus programs, which began in 1972, allowed participants to work and study concurrently. At Michigan, students attended class 8 hours a day, 4 days a month, for 2 years. At U.S.C., they attended classes for 14 consecutive days 3 times a year for 2 years. Since the usual admission requirements of established graduate programs limit access of minority students, who frequently lack adequate educational backgrounds, admission criteria were ...

Community Health Centers began with a demonstration project under President Lyndon B. Johnsons War on Poverty. Today, they have grown into the largest and most successful primary care system in the country, reaching one in every 14 people in the United States and serving 25 million people annually. In 2015-16, Americas community health centers celebrated 50 years of providing comprehensive, high-quality, accessible and affordable primary and preventive healthcare services to uninsured and medically vulnerable people at more than 9,200 locations in urban and rural communities across the country. Health centers today increase access, reduce disparities, improve outcomes and reduce health care costs. Community health centers save the healthcare system approximately $28.8 billion annually. In addition to generating substantial cost savings for the health care system, health centers also boost the economic health of the communities they serve through job creation; in 2014, community health centers ...

WASHINGTON, DC and NEW YORK (Nov. 18, 2013)-A new report by the Geiger Gibson/RCHN Community Health Foundation Research Collaborative at the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services (SPHHS) examines the impact of federal and state policy decisions on community health centers (CHCs) and their ability to continue providing primary care to the nations poorest residents. The report, "How Medicaid Expansions and Future Community Health Center Funding Will Shape Capacity to Meet the Nations Primary Care Needs," estimates that under a worst-case scenario, the nations health centers would be forced to contract, leaving an estimated 1 million low-income people without access to health care services by the year 2020.. "Without continued support, community health centers will not be able to meet the rising demand for primary care in underserved parts of the United States," said the lead author of the report, Leighton Ku, ...

Federally Qualified Health Centers are expanding to increase access for millions of more Americans with a goal of doubling capacity to serve 40 million people. Health centers provide a lot of behavioral health services but many have difficulty accessing mental health and substance use professionals for their patients. To meet the needs of the underserved and newly insured it is important to better estimate how many behavioral health professionals are needed. Using health center staffing data and behavioral health service patterns from the 2010 Uniform Data System and the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, we estimated the number of patients likely to need behavioral health care by insurance type, the number of visits likely needed by health center patients annually, and the number of full time equivalent providers needed to serve them. More than 2.5 million patients, 12 or older, with mild or moderate mental illness, and more than 357,000 with substance abuse disorders, may have gone without

It is estimated that each year 1 out of 4 teenagers becomes infected with a sexually transmitted disease (STD), which may include chlamydia, herpes, human papillomavirus, or HIV. Teenagers are especially vulnerable to STD infections because of a lack of education about proper condom use and consequences of sexual risk behaviors, including pregnancy. In addition to the high prevalence of STD infection, teen pregnancy remains a health concern for young women, with 31% of young women in the United States becoming pregnant before the age of 20. Transmission of STDs from a pregnant woman to her baby is possible before, during, and after birth, making it particularly important to inform young pregnant women about STDs. A group prenatal care treatment program that incorporates HIV/STD prevention education, called CenteringPregnancy Plus (CP+), has shown success in reducing sexual risk behaviors in an academic setting, but its effectiveness at Community Health Centers (CHCs) serving women at high risk ...

Human papilloma virus (HPV) is the name of a group of viruses that affect the skin. There are over 100 different types of HPV. Many types can cause warts on the hands or feet. These types are rarely transmitted through sexual contact. There are about 30 different types that are transmitted through sex and are considered sexually transmitted infections (STI).. HPV is a very common virus. Experts estimate that 70% of sexually active people have had HPV. Most will never develop symptoms. Those with symptoms may notice external genital warts. These are growths or bumps that appear in and around the vagina, anus, cervix, penis, scrotum or groin. They may be raised or flat, single or multiple, small or large. Other symptoms may include itching, pain or bleeding. An abnormal pap test may be the first sign that HPV infection is present. This is called subclinical infection. Symptoms may appear within weeks of contact, but it may takes months or years for symptoms to develop. This makes it hard for you ...
New study led by researchers at Duke finds those who use HCC for primary care less likely to need ER visits or hospitalizations than those who do not.
An assessment of the efficiency of Federally funded community health centers (CHCs) in delivering ambulatory medical care to poverty populations reveals that the centers input decisions reflect departures from cost-minimizing behavior. In particular, they employ too few physician aids (nurses and physician assistants) relative to primary care physicians and too many medical support and ancillary personnel relative to primary care physicians. The CHC system-wide cost reduction due to the elimination of allocative inefficiency is estimated at $32 million in 1978 dollars or 6 percent of total cost. This modest cost reduction and evidence that allocative inefficiency is not more widespread among CHCs than among private sector physicians seriously question the conventional wisdom that services in the public sector are produced less efficiently than in the private sector. Support is also reported for the hypothesis that, since grants are not tied to particular services rendered, centers who derive ...

Purpose: To assess the outcomes of an ocular UWFI teleophthalmology program in an urban community health center and to determine the impact of peripheral retinal lesions on DR severity in such a setting. Methods: We reviewed the outcomes of a Joslin Vision Network (JVN) program from May 30, 2014 to November 10, 2014 deployed at the Mattapan Community Health Center in Boston, MA which serves a largely underserved population without ready access to ophthalmic care. All patients underwent UWFI using a Daytona Retinal Imager (Optos, plc, Dunfermine, Scotland, UK) following a previously validated image acquisition protocol of 2000 stereoscopic pairs of retinal images for each eye. All JVN images were evaluated following a standardized validated protocol on identical color calibrated LCD high resolution computer monitors by trained licensed graders. Results: A total of 105 consecutive patients were imaged with UWFI. Mean age was 63.1 years (±14.7), mean diabetes duration 9.4 years (±8.4), 69.5% ...

The program, entitled the Primary Health Networks Immunisation Support Program, will be co-designed with PHNs to better support and coordinate immunisation providers and services in their regions.

Deckers, executive vice president for health affairs at the UConn Health Center and dean of the School of Medicine, says the Auxiliary is "critically important to the well being of the schools here at the Health Center, as well as the John Dempsey Hospital and our physician practice.

Irene Engel, Auxiliary facilitator and longtime member, says, "The work is rewarding in that you know youre making a difference for all who come here as ...

Published On Tue Jun 14 2011. By Carol Goar, Editorial Board. The answer is right under our noses. Its been there for 40 years.. Yet Ottawa and the provinces continue to pour billions of dollars into a quest for more efficient ways to deliver medical services; more businesslike ways to operate the health-care system; and more effective ways to keep people out of the hospital.. If they went back to the original vision of medicare, theyd find the less expensive, less bureaucratic alternative theyre looking for. And if they looked, theyd find dozens of working models.. Community health centres are the closest thing Canada has to Tommy Douglass dream: a health-care system that treats people, not symptoms. They deal with the underlying causes of illness: poverty, isolation, poor diet, mental disorders. They thrive in places where people dont speak English, dont have access to a family doctor and dont know how to navigate Canadas complex, rigidly compartmentalized medical system. They welcome ...

Environmental health and safety technician - $50,589 The White House estimates that the stimulus plan will create three million new jobs over the next two years, but experts caution that the bulk of those stimulus plan jobs wont happen until next year. About six percent of the stimulus money has been spent so far, and only 20 percent of it will be spent by the end of this calendar year, said Eric Dickerson, a partner with the executive recruitment firm Kaye/Bassman in Plano, Texas. What were seeing right now is the building of the governmental infrastructure that will oversee those programs.. Even that six percent of the stimulus plan money is already making a difference in some communities. Manet Community Health Center in the suburbs of Boston was able to hire four new bilingual doctors with stimulus money. AmeriCorps is gearing up to fill 10,000 new yearlong community service positions funded by the stimulus plan. And Don Laskey, president of a construction firm in Coos Bay, Ore., says ...

MAT is far too small for the personalities it welcomes every day. Since 1999, the Maximally Assisted Therapy Program, known all over Vancouver simply as MAT, has cared for people living with HIV who face significant barriers to daily adherence to antiretroviral therapy. Since 2001, MAT has cared for its members in a crowded, busy, friendly and supportive section of the Downtown Community Health Centre.. MAT is not just a clinical response to the need to improve ART adherence: its "a community of caring," according to Suzy Coulter, MATs previous clinical coordinator and now a casual nurse at the program, where any barrier-biomedical or psychosocial-to adherence is addressed by members of a committed and compassionate interdisciplinary team.. Some members have been coming to MAT for years. They come because theres breakfast, because the nurses on staff know their veins and it makes their blood work easier, and because for many it has become a vital part of their routine. Mostly, members ...
