Cooperation or conflict over child health surveillance? Views of key actors. (2/296)

OBJECTIVE: To describe the views of general practitioners, health visitors, and clinical medical officers on child health surveillance, recent changes, perceptions of each other's roles, and attitudes to audit. DESIGN: Postal questionnaire survey. SETTING: Three health districts in North West Thames health region. SUBJECTS: All 602 general practitioners, 272 health visitors, and 42 clinical medical officers in these districts. MAIN MEASURES: Attitudes to and perceptions of child health surveillance and audit. Questionnaires were completed by 440 general practitioners (response rate 73%), 164 health visitors (60%), and 39 clinical medical officers (93%). RESULTS: Attitudes to child health surveillance were less positive among general practitioners than health visitors or clinical medical officers. Few respondents agreed that child health surveillance was a cost effective use of general practitioners' time (general practitioners 28%, 113/407; health visitors 28%, 40/145; clinical medical officers 39%, 15/39) and most thought that health visitors should carry out more of the doctors' examinations (68%, 262/387; 65%, 89/136; 66%, 25/38). General practitioners thought that clinical medical officers were less supportive than other relevant groups of their doing more child health surveillance. Most (72%, 105/146) health visitors thought that the 1990 contract had reduced parental choice of where to attend for child health surveillance. General practitioners were less enthusiastic than health visitors about most forms of clinical audit. CONCLUSIONS: Despite reservations about the impact of recent changes all groups were willing to explore innovative ways of delivering child health surveillance. IMPLICATIONS: There is scope for health visitors to increase their responsibilities and for more varied relationships between general practitioners and community child health doctors.  (+info)

Changing preventive practice: a controlled trial on the effects of outreach visits to organise prevention of cardiovascular disease. (3/296)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of outreach visits by trained nurse facilitators on the organisation of services used to prevent cardiovascular disease. To identify the characteristics of general practices that determined success. DESIGN: A non-randomised controlled trial of two methods of implementing guidelines to organise prevention of cardiovascular disease: an innovative outreach visit method compared with a feedback method. The results in both groups were compared with data from a control group. SETTING AND SUBJECTS: 95 general practices in two regions in The Netherlands. INTERVENTIONS: Trained nurse facilitators visited practices, focusing on solving problems in the organisation of prevention. They applied a four step model in each practice. The number of visits depended on the needs of the practice team. The feedback method consisted of the provision of a feedback report with advice specific to each practice and standardised instructions. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The proportion of practices adhering to 10 different guidelines. Guidelines were on the detection of patients at risk, their follow up, the registration of preventive activities, and teamwork within the practice. RESULTS: Outreach visits were more effective than feedback in implementing guidelines to organise prevention. Within the group with outreach visits, the increase in the number of practices adhering to the guidelines was significant for six out of 10 guidelines. Within the feedback group, a comparison of data before and after intervention showed no significant differences. Partnerships and practices with a computer changed more. CONCLUSION: Outreach visits by trained nurse facilitators proved to be effective in implementing guidelines within general practices, probably because their help was practical and designed for the individual practice, guided by the wishes and capabilities of the practice team.  (+info)

The contribution of interagency collaboration to the promotion of young people's sexual health. (4/296)

This paper employs a case study approach in order to examine the contribution of interagency working to the delivery of education and services in the difficult field of young people's sexual health. It reports on a collaborative UK initiative involving teachers, community health practitioners, health promotion staff, and youth and community workers. The provision included school-based sex education, drop-in advice and information facilities, 'detached' street work, and a young person's clinic. A qualitative study was completed involving detailed interviews with 25 staff from the different agencies involved. The findings suggest that interagency collaboration can enhance the work of each organization, and can achieve a comprehensive response to young people's sexual health needs by making positive use of the distinctive roles, skills, knowledge and approaches of the different agencies. The potential that such a collaboration will have a significant impact on young people's sexual health is discussed.  (+info)

A randomised controlled trial of specialist health visitor intervention for failure to thrive. (5/296)

AIMS: To determine whether home intervention by a specialist health visitor affects the outcome of children with failure to thrive. METHODS: Children referred for failure to thrive were randomised to receive conventional care, or conventional care and additional specialist home visiting for 12 months. Outcomes measured were growth, diet, use of health care resources, and Bayley, HAD (hospital anxiety and depression), and behavioural scales. RESULTS: Eighty three children, aged 4-30 months, were enrolled, 42 received specialist health visitor intervention. Children in both groups showed good weight gain (mean (SD) increase in weight SD score for the specialist health visitor intervention group 0.59 (0.63) v 0.42 (0.62) for the control group). Children < 12 months in the intervention group showed a higher mean (SD) increase in weight SD score than the control group (0.82 (0.86) v 0.42 (0.79)). Both groups improved in developmental score and energy intake. No significant differences were found for the primary outcome measures, but controls had significantly more dietary referrals, social service involvement, and hospital admissions, and were less compliant with appointments. CONCLUSIONS: The study failed to show that specialist health visitor intervention conferred additional benefits for the child. However, the specialist health visitor did provide a more coordinated approach, with significant savings in terms of health service use. Problems inherent to health service research are discussed.  (+info)

Primary care group commissioning of services: the differing priorities of general practitioners and district nurses for palliative care services. (6/296)

BACKGROUND: General practitioners (GPs) have become more responsible for budget allocation over the years. The 1997 White Paper has signalled major changes in GPs' roles in commissioning. In general, palliative care is ranked as a high priority, and such services are therefore likely to be early candidates for commissioning. AIM: To examine the different commissioning priorities within the primary health care team (PHCT) by ascertaining the views of GPs and district nurses (DNs) concerning their priorities for the future planning of local palliative care services and the adequacy of services as currently provided. METHOD: A postal questionnaire survey was sent to 167 GP principals and 96 registered DNs in the Cambridge area to ascertain ratings of service development priority and service adequacy, for which written comments were received. RESULTS: Replies were received from 141 (84.4%) GPs and 86 (90%) DNs. Both professional groups agreed that the most important service developments were urgent hospice admission for symptom control or terminal care, and Marie Curie nurses. GPs gave greater priority than DNs to specialist doctor home visits and Macmillan nurses. DNs gave greater priority than GPs to Marie Curie nurses, hospital-at-home, non-cancer patients' urgent hospice admission, day care, and hospice outpatients. For each of the eight services where significant differences were found in perceptions of service adequacy, DNs rated the service to be less adequate than GPs. CONCLUSION: The 1997 White Paper, The New NHS, has indicated that the various forms of GP purchasing are to be replaced by primary care groups (PCGs), in which both GPs and DNs are to be involved in commissioning decisions. For many palliative care services, DNs' views of service adequacy and priorities for future development differ significantly from their GP colleagues; resolution of these differences will need to be attained within PCGs. Both professional groups give high priority to the further development of quick-response clinical services, especially urgent hospice admission and Marie Curie nurses.  (+info)

During the same period, practice-based child health clinics have increased, although provision is less common in areas of deprivation where hospital use is greatest. AIM: To investigate the contribution of practice-based, preventive child health services to rates of hospital utilisation in children under five years of age. METHOD: A cross-sectional retrospective study examining practice variations in paediatric acute admissions, outpatient referrals, and accident and emergency (A&E) department attendances in the East London and the City Health authority, including all 164 practices in the inner-city boroughs of Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets, and the City of London. The main outcome measures were practice-based paediatric hospital attendance rates, for discrete age and sex bands, for the year to 31 March 1996. RESULTS: Hospital use varied with age and sex, with the rates being highest for the youngest children and for boys. The median A&E attendance rate (including reattendances) for boys up to one year of age was 897 per thousand children per practice. In east London, 62% of practices are registered for child health surveillance and 71% provide a child health clinic. Practice approval for child health surveillance, and the provision of child health clinics, did not account for differences between practices in hospital use, but proportionally greater health visiting hours were significantly related to lower rates of emergency hospital admission by young children. Multivariate analyses revealed that up to 23% of the variation between practice admission rates could be explained by health visiting hours. CONCLUSIONS: We found significant associations between the amount of health visiting time available to the practice population and rates of acute admission and outpatient referral among children up to five years of age. These findings suggest that increasing health visitor provision could contribute to lower paediatric emergency admission and outpatient referral rates. A small change would have a significant effect, particularly among the youngest children, given that during the study year 10,000 children under two years of age in east London were either admitted or referred to hospital.  (+info)

A sustainable programme to prevent falls and near falls in community dwelling older people: results of a randomised trial. (8/296)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: In the causative mechanism of falls among older community dwellers, slips and trips have been found to be significant precursors. The purpose of the two year trial was to assess the effectiveness of multi-component interventions targeting major risk factors for falls in reducing the incidence of slips, trips and falls among the well, older community. DESIGN: Four groups with approximately equal numbers of participants were randomly allocated to interventions. The prevention strategies included education and awareness raising of falls risk factors, exercise sessions to improve strength and balance, home safety advice to modify environmental hazards, and medical assessment to optimise health. The interventions combined the strategies in an add on approach. The first intervention group receiving the information session only was regarded as the control. The outcome of interest was the occurrence of a slip, trip or fall, monitored prospectively using a daily calendar diary. PARTICIPANTS AND SETTING: Two hundred and fifty two members of the National Seniors Association in the Brisbane district agreed to participate. National Seniors clubs provide a forum for active, community dwelling Australians aged 50 and over to participate in policy, personal development and recreation. MAIN RESULTS: Using Cox's proportional hazards regression model, adjusted hazard ratios comparing intervention groups with the control ranged from 0.35 (95% CI 0.17, 0.73) to 0.48 (0.25, 0.91) for slips; 0.29 (0.16, 0.51) to 0.45 (0.27, 0.74) for trips; and 0.60 (0.36, 1.01) to 0.82 (0.51, 1.31) for falls. While calendar monitoring recorded outcome, it was also assessed as a prevention strategy by comparing the intervention groups with a hypothetical nonintervened group. At one year after intervention, reductions in the probability of slips, trips and falls (61 (95% CI 54, 66)%; 56 (49, 63)%; 29 (22, 36)% respectively) were demonstrated. CONCLUSIONS: This study makes an important contribution to the priority community health issue of falls prevention by showing that effective, sustainable, low cost programmes can be introduced through community-based organisations to reduce the incidence of slips, trips and falls in well older people.  (+info)

Alarm sounded on health consequences of substantial reduction in NHS health visitors. The worlds first ever analysis of data from a full scale clinical trial in adults shows that training Health Visitors to assess and psychologically support mothers after childbirth can prevent the development of depression over the following year.. But the substantial reduction in the number of NHS health visitors was identified by researchers as a key issue for the health and well-being of mums.. The prevention study was led at the University of Leicester by Professor Terry Brugha with researchers from the universities of Nottingham and Sheffield. It is being published in the Cambridge University Press journal Psychological Medicine.. While small scale studies have been carried out into the prevention of depression among adults, this peer refereed scientific report is the first sufficiently large scale randomised trial to clearly show a statistically significant reduction in future cases of depression in ...

The aim was to study the factors that contributed to the prescription of physical activity on prescription (PaP) by the professions in primary healthcare. A qualitative method was used in the study. The sample consisted of six participants; two doctors, two physiotherapists and two district nurses in primary healthcare in Uppsala County. The data were collected with semi-structured interviews and were analyzed with a thematic approach. The results show a great variety in which type of patient that receive PaP, however people with lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and obesity are often more represented. The factors that contribute to prescribing is: the prescriber should have time set aside in their daily schedule to be able to focus on the patient, the patient should be motivated to a lifestyle change, there should be opportunity for further education in PaP and physical activity linked to different diagnoses and motivational interviewing (MI). Other important factors are ...
can positively contribute to the recovery journey for patients in their care.. Communication and interpersonal skills and the development of the therapeutic alliance are always desirable when working with individuals accessing health services.. This approach to intervention is particularly suited to primary and community nurses as it is the development of sustained relationships built over time that increases the potential for positive recovery, promoting well being and enhancing quality of life.. The recovery approach requires a mind shift for professionals; working with the individual as opposed to doing things to or for the patient. All those who are involved in supporting and facilitating care with these individuals should actively endorse autonomy, personal voice and engagement in all aspects of care.. Challenges of the recovery approach. A commonly reported challenge of this approach is the conscious effort needed to consider and engage with patient decisions - particularly when they ...

ABSTRACT. The objectives of this study were to identify the role of community nurses in the prevention of tuberculosis (TB) and to identify problems experienced by them when fulfilling this role in the Tshwane Health District of Gauteng. A non-experimental, descriptive, quantitative research design method was used to collect data from community nurses. The sample included 59 registered nurses who voluntarily agreed to participate in the study. A questionnaire was used to collect data and quantitative data analysis methods were employed. Various opinions and ideas on the role of community nurses in the prevention of TB and the problems experienced were identified. Based on the results of this research, measures to protect community nurses from contracting TB whilst on duty should be a priority. Government should support TB programmes by providing money to non-governmental organisations and direct observed treatment short course (DOTS) supporters to make follow-up visits to patients possible, thus ...

This thesis represents a study which began when the term health promotion first appeared in health authority policy documents but, at the same time it appeared to be a term little understood by those health care professionals deemed responsible for its implementation. Clarification of the concept of health promotion was pursued by the researcher using grounded theory methodology. Health visitors, health education officers/health promotion officers, and general practitioners participated in a series of group interviews and the data was analysed by cognitive mapping (Jones 1975), and constant comparative analysis (Glaser & Strauss 1967). Results from analysis of the qualitative data formed a theoretical framework which guided the second, quantitative stage, of the study. A postal survey of a national sample of 1000 health visitors was undertaken. The response rate was 65% comprising 557 health visitors. Analysis of data was carried out using the SPSS statistical package. The results revealed that ...

POP-UP homes could be used to help attract vital workers to the North-east.. Modular housing is being considered in a bid to build homes quickly to try to encourage key staff to the region.. Modular homes, nicknamed pop-up because of the speed at which they can be built, are constructed using pre-assembled sections. They come with insulation, wiring and plumbing installed and require minimal foundations.. Its hoped such housing would encourage key workers such as nurses and carers to come to the area.. Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire councils today revealed both are investigating the feasibility of investing money into the scheme.. The councils would still have to go through the planning process for the homes but, if they are approved, they could be built quickly..

By Doug McConnell and Dominic Wilkinson. Post originally appeared on the Journal of Medical Ethics Blog. While the general public enjoy the relative safety of social distancing, key workers are at a higher risk of both contracting COVID-19 and transmitting it to their families. This is especially the case for frontline workers who are frequently exposed to the virus and may not have access to adequate personal protective equipment (PPE). Tragically, many key workers have died of COVID-19 around the world already, including over 100 in the UK.. Although it is relatively rare for key workers to die from COVID-19, the risk of death is obviously much greater than one would usually expect in these roles and key workers clearly have good reason to be anxious. For frontline workers, the distress is compounded by working in harrowing conditions where so many are dying alone. Furthermore, frontline workers have to take on the burdens of ensuring they do not transmit infections to their families, by ...

The NHS is constantly changing to try and meet the increasing challenges of providing healthcare to the population. General Practice also known as primary care has a significant part to play in the way healthcare services are offered and delivered.. From 1st April all GP Practices are being asked to join with neighbouring practices to form clusters which are being called Primary Care Networks. These networks will be made up of GP practices that are close to one another in location to make a total network population of between 30,000 and 50,000 patients. This does not mean that these practices will be merging together, more that they will become the centres around which other NHS services will be wrapped, such as district nurses and social care.. So what does this mean for you as our patient and the practice you are registered with?. Four practices in our area, namely this one, St Margarets, Richmond Road and Grafton Road are coming together to form a Primary Care Network. We hope that by ...
This paper seeks to address this gap. The paper reports on one element of a broader study which set out to investigate issues of choice and decision making in end of life care (EOLC) from the perspective of patients, their family members and HCPs involved in their care. One of the key objectives in our study related to the Preferred Place of Care (PPCa) tool. This originated as part of a District Nurse education programme [15-17] to encourage discussion of ACP. The study aimed to explore if, when and how PPC was used to facilitate conversations about patients preferences (for place Inhibitors,research,lifescience,medical of care and death) and how these were documented. Discussion. and recording of these preferences is seen as an important means of supporting and enabling. patient choice, currently a central aspect of EOLC policy in England [18]. PPC is one of three interventions that were rolled out in England in the first phase of the National End of Life Care Programme between 2004-2007. In ...

The social worker spoke to the district nurse on 24 December 2018. The district nurse said Mr C was seen on 22 December 2018. The pressure sores were still at grade 4. The problem was that Mr C was incontinent of faeces and the faeces then spread over the wounds which severely reduced the healing process. The district nurse team had made a referral to the tissue viability nurse on 20 December 2018, but the tissue viability nurse team was short staffed. The social worker said she would hold a multi-disciplinary meeting to discuss the matter but would wait until the tissue viability nurse had been to see Mr C.

The birth was relatively straight forward, albeit very quick, and I was discharged on the 6 hour turn around. Everything was just perfect. The health visitor came out and done her checks, and then left us to it, without any other visits planned until the various tests they needed in several days or a week. (I cant remember, I just remember it being a lot longer then with my 1st). However on day 3, I remember calling the health visitor out, as I knew something was wrong. But didnt know exactly what. S was extremely irritable, and upset, and she would curl her whole body up, have a lot of vomit, and it was projectile, and she just would not settle. For a 3 day old baby, this wasnt normal for us, J usually just fed, slept and pooped. The health visitor came out and put it down to colic, but she explained that didnt usually come in until 2weeks. So we started to pop Infacol into her feeds. (Colic medicine ...

Results: Health professional net agreement for provider incentives for smoking cessation targets was 52.9% (263/497); net disagreement was 28.6% (142/497). Health visitors/maternity staff were more likely than doctors to agree: OR 2.35 (95% CI 1.51 to 3.64; p,0.001). Net agreement for provider incentives for breastfeeding targets was 44.1% (219/497) and net disagreement was 38.6% (192/497). Agreement was more likely for women (compared with men): OR 1.81 (1.09 to 3.00; p=0.023) and health visitors/maternity staff (compared with doctors): OR 2.54 (95% CI 1.65 to 3.91; p,0.001). Key emergent themes were moral tensions around acceptability, need for incentives, goals, collective or divisive action and monitoring and proof. While provider incentives can focus action and resources, tensions around the impact on relationships raised concerns. Pressure, burden of proof, gaming, box-ticking bureaucracies and health inequalities were counterbalances to potential benefits ...

This evening I arrived for my evening surgery to find a message from one of our District Nurses. A patient had taken too many codeine tablets so would I please ring him to sort things out. He is a likeable chap but he occasionally does slightly daft things. He was recently prescribed some codeine tablets for some pain he was getting, but because the codeine did not seem to be working he had taken forty tablets between 8am yesterday and 2am this morning. I rang him to find out what was going on and he told me that he hadnt been trying to harm himself, just to get rid of the pain. He felt perfectly well, had not felt nauseous and was breathing normally. What was to be done? There is no guideline covering this situation so I had to work things out for myself ...
On Wednesday Roy went for a blood test to see what - if any - difference the blood transfusion had made, he also had a long talk with the hospice nurse and in the end it was decided that they would try giving the anti nausea meds through a slow release drip system. This would have to be installed by the district nurse. She came to do this on Thursday morning - even though it was ANZAC Day. The whole process took about an hour to set up and when she was done Roy had a drip line in the top of his left arm and a small device which he had to carry around with him. We found a bag to put it in so at least he could be hands free ...

This study suggests that, compared with conventional management, a treatment programme for failure to thrive delivered by health visitors using strict diagnostic criteria and assessment protocols, with limited additional support, results in a weight gain of around half an intercentile space using UK charts, equivalent to about 550 g. This was despite only just over half of the intervention group receiving the full programme, because a fifth showed prior spontaneous recovery and another quarter exercised their right to decline aspects of the programme. The fairly low levels of compliance with the follow up home visit were also disappointing, but compliance rates were similar in both arms, and those interviewed were representative of the original group. It is fortunate, however, that routine follow up weights were also retrieved for a high proportion of the group, which also showed a significant treatment benefit.. The severity of failure to thrive found in this cohort was similar to previous ...

Many mums I see have been told by their midwife or health visitor they must supplement with formula because their baby isnt gaining weight as expected. Nobody has assessed a full feed, or established why; who needs to do that when we can tell mums that theyre clearly just breastfeeding for themselves, its time to move on - and with our wonder substitute we can see exactly how much baby is drinking! Sometimes the parents are helpfully told if the baby hasnt gained at the next weigh in, then she will insist formula must be given; whilst giving them absolutely no support of how to try and maximise babys gain in the meantime ...

We spoke with four people who used the service who told us that they felt involved in the planning of their care and understood the range of treatment options available to them. We saw that there was a range of information provided to people, and that people were treated in a dignified manner. One person said, �I didn�t know what to expect, but [key worker] has explained to me the options and I feel a lot happier and more hopeful now.�. People who used the service were encouraged to develop and plan their own treatment, however this was not always recorded in sufficient detail by the staff. People we spoke with were overall positive about their experience with one person telling us, I have just had my assessment and to be honest I am looking forward to starting, particularly the relapse prevention group.
