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)

Do practice-based preventive child health services affect the use of hospitals? A cross-sectional study of hospital use by children in east London. (7/296)

BACKGROUND: Acute paediatric admissions have risen steadily over the past 20 years. 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

I have started to wean Roo after he enjoyed xmas dinner with us - all the signs where there for him being ready as in hes sitting up, he can swallow without spitting out, hungry but only takes 5oz, picks stuff up and puts it straight in his mouth, but since starting nothing seems to be going right! I know theres no right way of getting them onto solids but I seem to be going backwards! Roo was loving food until tuesday, when he decided he didnt want anything anymore - I left it and tried weds but got the same reaction. I dont want to force feed him as at the end of the day hell tell me when hes ready, but the HV (Health Visitor) says I shouldnt stop. I am thinking now Roo isnt ready and Im pushing him too soon. Im looking into BLW (baby-led weaning) as it sounds better than feeding him what I want him to eat, but all the literature seems to indicate its better for breastfed babies than FF. I feel so disheartened at the thought of weaning him that I just want to give up! My

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 ...

There are slight deviations for the 15 to 19, and 45 to 49 ...
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 ...

Key learning points:. - Most people with wounds are cared for in the community. - Community nurses are dealing with more complex wounds than ever before - Nurses must adapt their practice to overcome the challenges of providing evidence-based care in settings outside of hospital. Nurses working in community settings care for 1.45 million people with wounds each year,1 and 39% of those wounds will not have healed after 12 months.1 Caring for people with acute and chronic wounds in the community can be more challenging than in hospital.. This article aims to explore the type of wounds that community nurses encounter in clinical practice, the importance of appropriate infection control, and how to overcome challenges.. What type of wounds do community nurses encounter?.

Thursday night we ended up calling 999 for my mother, as she had a pain in her back then into her heart. It turns out she had a water infection, but when she was discharged they had left the canola in her arm, sent her out without her own medication (which she took in) and the new tablets for her infection. This wasnt discovered until bedtime and getting anything organised at 8.30 was a nightmare. I went back through to the hospital but the tablets couldnt be found, a District nurse was organised to come and remove the needle, this didnt happen till 11 pm at night! Problem was last Thursday night I was having those heart pains myself, I think it was no 5 since they started a few weeks ago. I just wanted to crawl into bed with some morphine and take the pain away instead of running around.

This case study found that within two years of the ten nurse consultant posts being created in a primary care organisation only five remained and within five years (2009) only two part time posts, with the original appointees, remained. As a workforce innovation, the conclusion must be, that in this community services setting the nurse consultant roles were not successfully assimilated into the health care system.. The study explored the interaction between the innovation (the nurse consultant posts), the adoptees (the senior staff in the organisation) and the context (the immediate service colleagues, the service organisation and commissioners as well as the broader NHS policy context) and identified key factors which were influential in the demise of the posts. These factors were: a) the extent to which there was support for individual nurses rather than the post, b) the extent to which there was an unambiguous and uncontested clinical service requirement for a nurse consultant and c) the ...
Increasingly more complex children and young people are being managed in the community. They require a multitude of different specialists, professionals and services to be involved in their lives and coordinating their overall care is a huge challenge. Each specialist and service involved are often only looking at their area of expertise in relation to the young person. Coordinating their care is a very hard and time consuming job - and this responsibility frequently falls to the parent or carer. Medical professionals, GPs, District Nurses, Social Services, Continuing Health, Education Authorities, CAMHS, Psychologists, Childrens Support Services, Hospices - the list is endless - and for each of these specialists to be aware of who else may be involved in the care of the child or young person is an impossibility. The parent or carer is left trying to keep each service up to date - an impossible task when looking after their child is often a full time job in itself. Adding to this already, ...

Thanks, Jerry.. In the meantime, Id been asked to ring the district nurses and ask their advice.. "If you cant get him out, call the ambulance. If it is beyond you all, theyll call the fire brigade to aid you as well!". It turned out the job was well within the ability of Jerry, Mum and Jed to handle, but it was a little scary.. It isnt nice to think of returning to Australia and having Dad and Mum caught in difficult situations such as this in the future.. It is MOST comforting to know that the family is surrounded by another family, the Church family, who love Dad and Mum and would bend over backwards to ...
Deborah decided to use allicin, but her consultant and some of their district nurses were not happy about the thought of her using allicin. After just a few weeks of spraying allicin liquid and applying allicin gel directly only on the wounds and taking allicin orally, Deborahs wound had healed. Her hospital confirmed that her infection had cleared up and that she not longer needed to have a planned operation.. Cancer Sheila B, a pharmacist, from London was diagnosed with stage 4 follicular lymphoma (a non-Hodgkins lymphoma, incurable at present, with orthodox treatment) with a tumour 10 cm x 7.5 cm in her abdomen. She decided to refuse chemotherapy because of the very damaging side effects and instead used amongst other things, a large dose of AlliTech Liquid daily (25 ml). Despite her doctors dire predictions of what would happen without chemotherapy, the hospital has now confirmed Sheila no longer needs any orthodox treatment. She now lives a normal life and taking a maintenance dose of 10 ...
A Newport-Mesa Unified School District nurse has been recognized by the Orange County School Nurses Organization with its School Nurse of the Year award.
This study shows the effectiveness of both fluoxetine and cognitive-behavioural counselling in the treatment of women found by community based screening to be depressed 6-8 weeks after childbirth. Combining fluoxetine and six sessions of counselling did not produce additional improvement.. This was not a trial of the effectiveness of counselling itself. All subjects received one session of counselling, and our trial design allowed us to study the additional benefits of an antidepressant and of further counselling sessions. This design was in part intended to reflect actual clinical practice in primary care. A general practitioner or a health visitor who finds that a woman is depressed postnatally is likely to spend some time listening and advising; this study aimed to show whether it was clinically justified to prescribe an antidepressant as well or provide additional time for further counselling, or both.. An unexpected finding was the great improvement in mood within one week of entering the ...
A review of community nursing education programmes throughout Wales (commissioned by the Welsh Assembly Government in 2006) led to the decision that future provision of education for practitioners working in the community will focus on a modularised approach. This new modularised approach enables the provision of an educational framework that matches the profile of different roles within community nursing teams. The module in particular will focus its attention on the many challenges facing practitioners today who work in this continuously changing yet challenging environment. The module addresses the recommendations put forward in recent policy documents Community Nursing Strategy (WAG 2009) and Together for Health (WG, 2011). This module will follow the design and structure (as dictated by the All Wales working group for community nurse education) of the core community module in that there are 4 themes which form the underlying content of the module. The themes are as follows: 1. Community as ...
Her beautiful new baby son was born just days after the very pregnant African finally made it to Canada from her homeland. But almost immediately, the hospital had to be the bearer of bad news: Immigration-related screening for new moms and newborns indicated both were carrying HIV, the virus associated with AIDS. The hospital gave mother and child excellent care to begin with, but it couldnt take on the whole need. It took Casey House, the hospice in Toronto thats provided care for men, women and children with HIV/AIDS for almost two decades, to meet the challenge. Everyone now says it was the special nature of homecare provided by Casey House Hospice that kept both mom and son alive and well and thriving in their new community. Casey House Home Hospice provides the same high-quality care that residents in the hospice receive then goes "above and beyond" the limitations that many visiting nurses unfortunately find themselves bound by.. "Our community nurses are problem-solvers," says Lynn ...
Hi ladies So as title says I need advice with bottle feeding, basically I bought avent Classic bottles (the small 125ml bottles) baby kept falling asleep so health visitor suggested buy size 2 teats, I mistakenly bought size 3 which were too fast and eventually found size 2 teats (very hard to find) but the past few days she has had little blisters on her lips with sucking, she makes very loud sucking noises with every feed, I also had purchased the bigger size bottles in pink before Id even given birth, but noticed these were a newer version from avent and quite similar to tommee tippee bottles so I tried her on one of these ones earlier with the size two teats and shes still sucking really loud with them, should I change the bottles altogether to another type ie tommee tippee (which I used in my 3 other kids no problems) Ive spent over £100 on avent bottles so dont wont to change to another make and still have the same problem, also the avent steraliser doesnt fit in our microwave so weve
Im still hoping for a phone call from the Health Visitor in Gourock about training up with the Breastfeeding Network. But in my heart Im afraid Ive missed the call. Im hardly ever home, and when I am, it seems the phone is always off the charger and dead. Why oh why didnt I give her my mobile number? (Not that that would help much since we just switched phones.) I really would like to do this. She asked a group of us at the Weaning Fayre I attended last week (or was it two weeks ago now?) who were breastfeeding if wed be interested in starting a peer support group. I really wanted to do it. Also because I have a mom-crush on one of the other girls who was asked, and I totally wanted to become friends with her. But I havent heard from them which means either a) they havent called yet or b) you snooze, you lose. Or rather, you leave your house with no answering machine, you lose. Especially when you cant remember the womans name to get ahold of her yourself ...
This article is SO spot on! The pressure on (new) mummies is insane... I hated how the Health visitors stressed that you should breastfeed your newborn 12 times a day or more, and made you feel like a criminal if that was not the case. They even told me to wake her up to feed. That would mean basically feeding around the clock as my baby girl was extremely slow, would fall asleep and loved comfort sucking (i.e. feeding lasted an hour or so. I love her, but hey, thats a long time). She would feed about 8 times in 24 hours, sometimes 9, and was perfectly fine with that. She was also a rather big baby, so could go a little longer between feeds. I would of course wake her up during the day if she would go longer than 4 hours between feeds, but other than that..why wake them up if you can have a few hours to yourself to SLEEP, shower, relax, etc. Thanks Caroline, really great post!.

Postnatal depression is one of the many types of depression that particularly affects parents after the delivery of their child.Emotional support should be given by friends and relatives. A new mother should not be overwhelmed by many tasks
Postnatal depression - counselling, support and advice for mothers, their families, supporters and interested health care workers.
It is difficult to predict who will suffer depressive symptoms postnatally, and many of these symptoms can remain unidentified by healthcare professionals. Special training for health visitors can reduce the symptoms of depression among postnatal women, and antidepressants may help.1 ,2 The Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale is the instrument most frequently used to identify postnatal depression in primary care.3. This interesting, small study, labelled a randomised controlled evaluation study, aimed to evaluate the effect of a postdelivery, hospital discharge education programme on postpartum depression, but the exact methods are unclear. The … ...

And, I also think that… the hospital knew that I was anxious about how I would cope when I got home. And I actually think it would be helpful if people said… talk to you about, your, exactly about your specific circumstances rather than just a general, Have you got family and friends who might be able to help you out?" Be more specific and ask more specific questions about, Okay so whens your husband going back to work? Or you know, When is somebody around with you full time? And maybe then get somebody if its not the midwife from the hospital or doctors in the hospital, get somebody out in the community to come, like the community midwives or health visitors to actually come back and have a conversation with you as a Mother. Not, with no, no intention to kind of check how your child is doing, but actually talk to you about how youre feeling physically. Whats the next milestone for you in terms of your husband going back to work in three days or whatever. Okay so realistically what ...
While previous research has examined the factors that contribute to giving up driving among older drivers, this cohort study by Marottoli et al investigated a potential consequence of that decision. Giving up driving was shown to be among the strongest predictors of increased depressive symptoms. This result is not surprising as many older adults consider "losing the ability to drive is as dramatic as losing the ability to walk".1 Giving up driving signals an end to independence for many seniors.. This study is timely, as more older drivers, who form an increasing segment of the driving population, will face this difficult decision. Although this study was done in an urban setting, surprisingly, rural seniors do not report more problems with transportation than urban seniors.2. Community nurses are well positioned to assist older adults and their families in preventing or alleviating depressive symptoms after giving up driving. The use of public transportation and alternative options such as ...
My first born, my little girl, turns 14 next week and I have survived this far! She is an amazing, beautiful, clever child who has always been determined, inquisitive and slightly challenging. She is beautiful and brilliant and she made me a mother.. I have learnt and grown with her - as my first baby she has made the happiest I have ever been, as well as the most lost and frustrated. The terror I felt when I realised I had to look after this brand new human being, that she was mine and that she was my responsibility, was overwhelming - I felt like there had been a mistake, that someone was going to knock on the door, apologise and tell me this baby was meant for someone else. But that knock didnt come and I had to grit my teeth and get on with it.. When its your first baby, every day is a learning curve because everything is confusing, we think we are doing everything wrong especially with all the conflicting information from books, magazines, midwives, health visitors, friends and family. ...
Whole-wheat. When your baby is around seven to eight months old you you can start to introduce cows milk in cooking, eggs, nuts, fish and more family foods including protein like chicken and fish.

If your baby is diagnosed with a food allergy or eczema or you have food allergies, eczema, asthma or hay fever in your family history you may need to be extra careful about peanuts and peanut products..

The underlying. By Elisa Adami. A slew of new words and expressions has entered our vocabulary in the past few months. Some come with clear-cut angles and marked spatial-temporal boundaries: lockdown, red-zone, quarantine, self-isolation, iso-pod. Others stretch into a hazy limbo - furlough - or combine into oxymoronic pairs - social distancing. Vital supplies nestle in unimposing acronyms like PPE, yet the words handy brevity does not make their shortages any less conspicuous. Meanwhile those who were previously deemed low-skilled are overnight upgraded to the status of key workers - but do not expect any improvement in pay or working conditions in return!. Unassuming and modest, the adjective underlying has started appearing in insistent combination with words such as health conditions or medical issues (see Merriam-Websters automatically selected sentences reflecting current usage). In its new blanket use, underlying points to medical conditions, chronic illnesses and disabilities that, in ...

This paper presents findings from an ethnographic study that examined how qualified district nurses conceptualised their role in relation to family carers and how they performed this aspect of their role. A participant observational study involving fieldwork and in-depth interviews with six district nursing teams was undertaken over a 12 month period. Interview transcripts and fieldnotes were analysed by drawing upon the principles of dimensional analysis. District nurses acted on the assumption that family carers would, by choice or default, provide care. Family carer support was conceptualised as a means of promoting self-care and the patients independence from nursing services. The rationale for providing family carer support was based largely on service capacity rather than carer needs and preferences. Six characteristics of district nursing support for carers were identified; enabling, supporting, mediating, care substitution, crisis prevention and crisis intervention. Family carers were ...

N2 - Background: Postnatal depression (PND) is common, affects the health of the mother, the development of the infant and places a large financial burden on services. Genetic and epigenetic biomarkers for PND could potentially improve the accuracy of current antenatal screening approaches. The aim of this systematic review is to report on the evidence for an association between genetic or epigenetic factors and postnatal depression. Method: A systematic search of five databases (Medline, EMBASE, PILOT, PsychINFO and SCOPUS) was carried out using the following (MeSh) terms and keywords: postpartum, depression, postnatal depression, genetics, genetic ...

In 1988 a cross-sectional epidemiological study was performed in Skaraborg County, Sweden, establishing leg ulcer point prevalence. Based on the results of that study a complete change in the care of leg ulcer patients was brought into practice. The objective of this postal cross-sectional follow-up study was to evaluate the success of the new management strategy. Responding healthcare providers were asked to report all patients with an open wound below the knee that did not heal within a 6-week period after onset of ulceration. Validity of results was ensured by examining 203 randomly selected patients. Based on clinical examination, an assessment of the underlying causes of ulceration was made. The study setting was inpatient and outpatient care in hospitals, primary care and community care within Skaraborg, with a population of 254,111. The response rate was 100% from district nurses, hospital wards and outpatient clinics. Reports were collected from healthcare providers, mainly nurses, in ...
Center for Infectious Diseases. Summary Surveillance systems indicate that the most documented human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) cases among children and women of childbearing age in the United States occur among black and Hispanic populations. Intravenous-drug use (IVDU) is the presumptive origin of HIV infection for most of these cases, through direct IVDU, sexual contact with an intravenous (IV)-drug user, or birth to women with either mode of exposure. These data confirm the need for HIV-prevention programs directed to the racial, ethnic, age, and reproductive concerns of black and Hispanic women of childbearing age and their children. Services should be available for those who are HIV infected, as well as for those who are not infected with HIV, to prevent the further spread of HIV. Services for prevention and treatment of drug abuse are an integral part of HIV prevention and treatment for these groups.. INTRODUCTION The incidence of ...
The project involved a combination of face-to-face training for GPs and practice nurses, online information for practitioners and patients, and specialist consultant-led but community-based support for patients who were frequently admitted to hospital. Patients who had three or more admissions in the previous year had a discovery interview in their home with a consultant and a specialist nurse, to review their health needs, optimise their treatment and investigate why they needed to come into hospital. These patients were given 24 hour access to a community nurse and could be seen by a consultant within 24 hours.. ...

The Battle of the Surcharge - won. Finally, last Friday, the Government announced it was going to remove the surcharge that overseas NHS staff have to pay for using the service they themselves work for. This follows two years of campaigning by unions such as Unison and Unite, which between them represent over 600,000 nurses, student nurses, midwives, doctors, health visitors, healthcare assistants, paramedics, cleaners, porters, catering staff, medical secretaries, clerical and admin staff and scientific and technical staff, who are either employed by the NHS or by other organisations which provide NHS services.. Only last Wednesday at Prime Ministers Question Time Johnson told MPs that the extra raised £900m needed for the NHS. This has been challenged by the Institute of Fiscal Studies which put the sum at a tenth of that - £90 million. But that is irrelevant to this argument, which is that none of the overseas staff should ever have had to pay to use the NHS. The Government could focus ...
Wow, a lot of these comments have made me realise just how lucky I was (and hopefully will be again) with the people around me. My son wouldnt latch on for 48 hours after birth and even after that it was hit and miss and still only on one side for a further 3 weeks. In all this time not one single person around me mentioned giving him a bottle of formula, not midwives, health visitors or any family member. Everyone offered me support with breastfeeding, whether it was practical advice and suggestions, encouragement to keep going and that I was doing really well or by helping out with other things such as housework or making me meals. Above all else my husband was amazing and sat with me night and day through painful feeds and tears, had skin to skin cuddles with our son to settle and calm him down when he got frustrated so we could try again and rang a local support group and midwives to get me more help and support. I just wish everyone could have the support I had. I found breastfeeding hard ...
A financial analysis was conducted for the estimation of the cost of our school-screening program, taking into consideration all the relevant factors, which may affect it. During the period of 1-1-2000 to 14-5-2006, 6470 pupils aged 6-18 years old were screened at schools for spinal deformities. The examiners were properly trained Health Visitors and occasionally Orthopaedic and General Medicine residents and Physiotherapists. The number of examiners who were involved in the program and their working hours, their salary on hourly basis, the expenditures required for transfer of the team and the average cost of the program for each child was calculated. ...
Hi everyone, I had a right side Hemicolectomy on the 30th of April this year, All went well with the surgery, bowel woke up within 24 hours, and I was able to go home 6 days after. When I went to get my staples removed the Dr wasnt happy with how the wound looked so he took a swab and sent it off to be tested, turned out that I had staff, so I then had to have community nurse come in to clean and dress it every 2nd day. I saw the surgeon 2 weeks after my surgery, and I commented to him about how distended my abdomen was, especially on the left side (opposite side to where the surgery was done), he said he wasnt concerned that it would settle with time. I had another appointment with him at 8 weeks post surgery, and again said that I wasnt happy with the way my abdomen was still so distended, again he didnt want to know about it! We are now 6 months down the track, and I still look like I am 6 months pregnant The scar had stretched across the middle to almost 2 inches wide, so I went to my GP ...
A whole week to recover from just the first dose of Evil Irene? Obviously my dose needs reviewing since Ive only managed one week since May/June where Ive not lost weight. At some point the change will be enough to warrant a "formula" dose change. Ive spoken to the Sister on the chemo suite and we know the bolus drug I had on day 3 helped a lot (as did being taken off the 5FU) so perhaps will start on that and the Domperidone instead of Ondansetron (Bum Bandits and old followers will recognise these as Dom Perignon and Dance-a-thon). I also left a message for community nurse to get me some more Fresubin shake style drinks (blackcurrant and lemon & lime) which, despite my dietary preferences seem to be the ones I can drink when nauseous. Ive tried a few over the last four years I can assure you! Ive even bought some tinned oily fish - since I did 2.5 months of serious de-tox prior to chemo I think adding 3 (the chemo days) days of fish a week. My body desperately needs the protein and whilst ...
There are some hay fever medicines that you can usually take while youre breastfeeding without risk to your baby.. Nasal sprays and eye drops should be tried first, and the antihistamines loratadine and cetirizine are generally considered safe when taken at low doses.

Always get advice from your GP before taking any medicine if youre breastfeeding and your baby:. ...
