Attitudes and behavioral intentions regarding managed care: a comparison of academic and community physicians. (1/140)

Physicians' attitudes toward managed care and the impact of these attitudes on behaviors that affect patient care are important factors in managed care reform. In addition, the attitudes of academic physicians may influence their willingness to reform medical education in an effort to prepare students to practice under managed care. Although it is a conventional opinion that the academic health center and its academic physicians are antagonistic toward managed care, there has not been a direct comparison of the attitudes of these physicians to those of practicing community physicians. We used a self-administered questionnaire to assess attitudes toward managed care and behavioral intentions regarding practices related to managed care; a sample of academic physicians (n = 129) was compared with a sample of community physicians (n = 307). Community physicians were less negative in their evaluations of the quality of care in a managed care environment, but no differences were identified between the two groups with regard to the cost-effectiveness, inevitability, or need to adapt to managed care. Academic specialists were more likely than academic primary care physicians to rate managed care as something to which they needed to adapt. Community physicians were less likely to report a willingness to change their referral patterns. Aggregating across practice type, we also uncovered systematic differences between primary care and specialist physicians. The data suggest that opinions about quality and cost-containment in managed care are significant correlates of intentions to change practice behaviors.  (+info)

Resolution and resurgence of schistosoma haematobium-induced pathology after community-based chemotherapy in ghana, as detected by ultrasound. (2/140)

Community-based treatment is recommended for endemic populations with urinary schistosomiasis; however, the optimal target group for treatment and retreatment interval have not been established. Using ultrasound, this study identified subpopulations whose lesions were most likely to respond to treatment and characterized resurgence of pathology. Ultrasound examination of 1202 infected patients was followed by chemotherapy with praziquantel. A sample of 698 patients was followed for 18 months after treatment. Nearly all types of bladder pathologies resolved after treatment, regardless of patient's age or intensity of initial infection. However, many patients' upper urinary tract pathologies (62.5%) did not resolve. During the 18-month follow-up period, reappearance of severe bladder pathologies was rare, and <10% of persons had resurgence of mild bladder pathologies. For this population, retreatment is not needed annually but might be cost effective if given several years later. Confirmation from other areas is required before general policies can be formed.  (+info)

A pilot study of community-based training of hospital obstetric senior house officers. (3/140)

Most senior house officer (SHOs) posts have little relevance to general practice. This problem was addressed in a pilot community teaching placement, of up to one session per week over four to six months that was set up to learn community-based obstetrics from primary health care teams. The nine participating SHOs were interviewed; qualitative analysis revealed seven themes that were important to the SHOs that should help guide further community-based teaching. Such sessional release for improving the practice-based component of vocational training merits evaluation in a larger study.  (+info)

A randomized, community-based trial of the effects of improved, centrally processed complementary foods on growth and micronutrient status of Ghanaian infants from 6 to 12 mo of age. (4/140)

BACKGROUND: Koko, a fermented maize porridge used as the primary complementary food in Ghana, has been implicated in the high prevalence of child malnutrition. Weanimix, a cereal-legume blend developed by the United Nations Children's Fund and the Ghanaian government, has been promoted as an alternative. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the effect of feeding Weanimix and 3 other locally formulated, centrally processed complementary foods on the nutritional status of 208 breast-fed infants. DESIGN: Infants were randomly assigned to receive 1 of 4 foods from 6 to 12 mo of age: Weanimix (W), Weanimix plus vitamins and minerals (WM), Weanimix plus fish powder (WF), and koko plus fish powder (KF). Dietary and anthropometric data were collected regularly. Blood was collected at 6 and 12 mo of age to assess iron, zinc, vitamin A, and riboflavin status. Before and after the intervention, cross-sectional data on the anthropometric status of infants not included in the intervention (NI; n = 464) were collected. RESULTS: There were no significant differences between intervention groups in weight or length gain or in hemoglobin, hematocrit, transferrin saturation, plasma zinc, or erythrocyte riboflavin values between 6 and 12 mo of age. From 9 to 12 mo of age, z scores were lower in NI infants than in the combined intervention groups [at 12 mo: -1.71 +/- 0.90 compared with -1.19 +/- 0.93 for weight and -1.27 +/- 1.02 compared with -0.63 +/- 0.84 for length (P < 0.001 for both), respectively]. The percentage of infants with low ferritin values increased significantly between 6 and 12 mo of age in groups W, WF, and KF but not in group WM. Change in plasma retinol between 6 and 12 mo of age was significantly greater in group WM than in the other 3 groups combined (0.14 +/- 0.3 compared with -0.04 +/- 0.3 micromol/L, P = 0. 003). CONCLUSIONS: All 4 foods improved growth relative to the NI group. Infants fed WM had better iron stores and vitamin A status than those fed nonfortified foods.  (+info)

Community nephrology: audit of screening for renal insufficiency in a high risk population. (5/140)

BACKGROUND: The rate of acceptance onto dialysis programmes has doubled in the past 10 years and is steadily increasing. Early detection and treatment of renal failure slows the rate of progression. Is it feasible to screen for patients who are at increased risk of developing renal failure? We have audited primary care records of patients aged 50-75 years who have either hypertension or diabetes, and are therefore considered to be at high risk of developing renal insufficiency. Our aim was to see whether patients had had their blood pressure measured and urine tested for protein within 12 months, and plasma creatinine measured within 24 months. METHODS: This was a retrospective study of case notes and computer records in 12 general practices from inner and greater London. A total of 16,855 patients were aged 50-75 years. From this age group, 2693 (15.5%) patients were identified as being either hypertensive or diabetic, or both. RESULTS: Of the 2561 records audited, 1359 (53.1%) contained a plasma creatinine measured within 24 months, and 11% of these (150) had a value > 125 micromol/l. This equates to a prevalence of renal insufficiency of > 110,000 patients per million in this group. Forty two patients (28%) had been referred to a nephrologist. Of records audited, 73% contained a blood pressure measurement and 29% contained a test for proteinuria within 12 months. CONCLUSIONS: There is a high prevalence of chronic renal insufficiency in hypertensive and diabetic patients. It is feasible to detect renal insufficiency at a primary care level, but an effective system will require computerized databases that code for age, ethnicity, measurement of blood pressure and renal function, as well as diagnoses.  (+info)

Measuring community-oriented attitudes towards medical practice. (6/140)

BACKGROUND: The measurement of attitude and attitudinal changes regarding community-oriented primary care (COPC) and the community-oriented principles of family medicine from the College of Family Physicians of Canada was a key component of this study involving family medicine residents. The Department of Family and Community Medicine at the Toronto Hospital initiated a new COPC curriculum in July 1997 for its first-year residents which was designed to teach the principles of family medicine which are community oriented. OBJECTIVE: This study was developed to provide an analysis and summary of the attitude and attitudinal changes of residents exposed to the programme and those of two cohort groups who were not exposed. METHODS: A quasi-experimental design was used. A 20-item questionnaire was administered pre- and post-intervention. Qualitative data were also collected from focus group sessions with the residents exposed to the programme. RESULTS: The questionnaire was found to have good reliability, with an alpha coefficient of 0.8. No significant differences were observed between the study and control groups pre- and post-intervention. Within the study group, two items from the questionnaire yielded significant differences (P < 0.05). These items dealt with lack of funding and impracticality issues of applying COPC in medical practice. They were also the prevalent themes generated from the focus group session analysis. CONCLUSIONS: The qualitative data corroborated the findings of the survey. These findings have helped in the evolution of the curriculum. Longitudinal studies to measure attitudes and the practice of COPC and community-oriented principles of family medicine after residency are recommended.  (+info)

Frequency doubling perimetry and the detection of eye disease in the community. (7/140)

PURPOSE: Frequency Doubling Technology (FDT) perimetry is a novel perimetric test that provides rapid screening (45 to 60 seconds) and full-threshold (4 to 5 minutes) testing for detection of vision loss. The purpose of this study was to determine the specificity and sensitivity of FDT perimetry for the detection of ocular disease. METHODS: A total of 130 participants (257 eyes of 42 men and 88 women) recruited from the community completed FDT perimetry, standard achromatic automated perimetry (SAP), anterior segment biomicroscopy, tonometry, and dilated ophthalmoscopy. FDT results were considered abnormal if 1 point was abnormal (depressed below the 5% level on the screening protocol C-20-5). SAP was considered abnormal if the glaucoma hemifield test or pattern standard deviation was outside normal limits (P < .05) or a hemifield cluster of 3 depressed points on the pattern deviation probability plot (P < .05) was present. An abnormal eye examination was defined as the presence of an abnormality in the anterior segment, lens, or posterior segment that was likely to cause a visual field defect or the presence of glaucomatous or other optic neuropathy. RESULTS: The mean age (+/- SD) of participants was 55.5 years (+/- 10.3). Ethnic groups, as reported by participants, included 77 (59%) African Americans, 40 (31%) Caucasians, and 13 (10%) in other groups. On clinical examination, 116 eyes (45%) were normal, 9 eyes (3.5%) had a cataract with best corrected visual acuity worse than 20/30, 16 eyes (6%) had open-angle glaucoma, and 17 eyes (7%) had retinal findings or lesions that were likely to cause a visual field defect. For FDT perimetry, 22 (8.6%) of 257 tests were unreliable, and for SAP, 65 (25.3%) of 257 tests were unreliable. The sensitivity and specificity of FDT perimetry for detecting an abnormal clinical examination were 55% and 90% and for detecting an abnormal examination that included an abnormal SAP, 64% and 86%. CONCLUSIONS: FDP demonstrated reasonable discriminatory power for detecting eye disease.  (+info)

Antimicrobial resistance: a plan of action for community practice. (8/140)

Antibiotic resistance was once confined primarily to hospitals but is becoming increasingly prevalent in family practice settings, making daily therapeutic decisions more challenging. Recent reports of pediatric deaths and illnesses in communities in the United States have raised concerns about the implications and future of antibiotic resistance. Because 20 percent to 50 percent of antibiotic prescriptions in community settings are believed to be unnecessary, primary care physicians must adjust their prescribing behaviors to ensure that the crisis does not worsen. Clinicians should not accommodate patient demands for unnecessary antibiotics and should take steps to educate patients about the prudent use of these drugs. Prescriptions for targeted-spectrum antibiotics, when appropriate, can help preserve the normal susceptible flora. Antimicrobials intended for the treatment of bacterial infections should not be used to manage viral illnesses. Local resistance trends may be used to guide prescribing decisions.  (+info)

The Department of Family and Community Medicine was established in 1975 as an administrative unit of the University of Alabama School of Medicine by founding chairman Dr. Robert G. Sherrill, Jr. In 1979-80, the UAB Family Practice Residency program began and an ambulatory training clinic was established both to educate residents and to maintain faculty clinical skills. The clinical practice saw approximately 9,000 patients each year until the mid-1980s when increasing demands for primary care and demands to generate additional clinical revenue to support the departments educational mission caused a surge in outpatient visits. For the next decade, the joint faculty-resident clinic practice completed over 20,000 outpatient visits annually. In addition, the department maintained a hospital inpatient service, provided care at a local nursing home, and offered family-centered obstetrical services. During the early 1970s, Family Practice Residency Programs were also established on the Huntsville and ...

Source: compiled from health departments statistics.. 14.50 Community medicine is a new specialty. Although the Todd Com-mission referred to it in its 1968 report, it was not until 1972 that a Faculty of Community Medicine was established by the Royal Colleges of Physicians. Outside the health service community physicians are employed in universities, the armed forces and government administration. Their main functions which are medical administration, environmental health and preventive medicine in the community, and epidemiology, combine to give the community physician a unique role in the planning of comprehensive health care for the community as a whole. The community physician should be responsible for:. highlighting the health problems in his particular population, for stimulating different health professionals to plan their services to meet these problems, and for evaluating and monitoring the success of these services.. In addition he should keep in contact with and advise the related ...

A total of 10,202 individuals between 16 and 60 were investigated. In this manner, the material could be subdivided into a risk population consisting of the individuals who already were receiving anti-hypertensive treatment and those individuals in whom three blood-pressure measurements either revealed a systolic blood-pressure of more than or equal to 160 mm Hg or a diastolic pressure more than or equal to 95 mm Hg. Thereafter, the risk population was included in an intervention programme. The median blood-pressure for all persons investigated was 128 mm Hg. The median diastolic blood-pressure was 80 mm Hg. 1.9% of the individuals investigated were already receiving anti-hypertensive therapy and 2.5% of those examined had blood-pressures over the limits stated on all three measurements. The risk population thus consisted of 4,4% of all the persons investigated. Increasing systolic and diastolic blood-pressures were found with increasing age in both sexes. In the younger age-groups, however, the ...
Factors influencing the utilization of health services are classified into: characteristics of the subjects, disorders and the service11. The focus of this study was on. the service-related characteristics. The two important findings were: (a) quality related factors were important utilization determining factors, in both PPs and UHCs and (b) major difference between the UHC and the PPs was the waiting period and the geographical accessibility of the health facility. The UHC and the PPs also differed on cleaner appearance, better behaviour of the doctors and getting relief. These differences, despite being significant were less so compared to the earlier two differences. It was further apparent that regarding dispensing good medicines and professional competency of the doctors (good doctor), there was not much difference between the UHCs and the PPs. In our study area there was one UHC with a staff of over 30 including 2 qualified doctors; laboratory and indoor facilities; and a free ...

The last factor makes rural elderly to divert their minds away from symptoms. It was seen in the present study that peak ...
My husband is a banker and his friends used to call me and seek medical advice. They had issues with blood sugar control and elevated cholesterol levels even from a comparatively younger age. Some were feeling anxious with heavy mental workloads and I thought it was important to study about occupational mental health. Occupational stress was not a well known entity in Sri Lanka at that time (2007-2009). I choose Professor Rohinie de Alwis Seneviratne, Professor of Community Medicine at the Department of Community Medicine of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Colombo who is a pioneer in occupational health research in Sri Lanka as my supervisor. I am very grateful to her for her contribution in shaping me up to what I am now. I was lucky since she accepted to be my supervisor. I think mental health especially at work settings need consideration even though it is a competing priority and that is again a reason for me to choose this study area ...

INTRODUCTIONThe vital role ofresearch in modern medicine cannot be overemphasized in view of todays dynamicswhere global information and technology have profoundly influenced human health. The past and the present The torchbearersof medicine in ancient India were the likes of Sushruta, the first plasticsurgeon in the world and Charaka, the introducer of concepts like digestion andimmunity(1).But, unfortunately, the comparable enthusiasm is lacking in current medicalstudents.. The scientific research which had been an integral part of Indiancivilisation, has now taken a backseat in our medical education system. Currently,research methodology and biostatistics is coveredunder the subject of community medicine and constitutes a tiny part of theBachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (M.B.B.. S.) curriculum. Even that isonly theoretical with no hands on practical training. Thus, the exposure ofundergraduate students to this field is limited. Due to the paltry treatmentmeated out to researh ...

Many factors that influence our health operate at the societal rather than individual level: what culture we come from, whether we live in poverty, whether we have access to health care and high-quality education. Theres a bit of a paradigm shift to say behavior is not just an individual choice. Its also constrained by the social environment this person is in and their financial resources, Adler says. To get at these macro-level factors, exposome researchers are using geographical information systems. Geo-coding is really opening up possibilities of linking whats going on in neighborhoods and communities to disease outcomes, Adler says.. For example, Paul Juarez, PhD, professor of family and community medicine at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, uses mapping technology to study health disparities. Juarez and his team created the Public Health Exposome Database, which contains 15,000 data points on each of 3,100 counties in the U.S.-including data on water and air ...

Recently, there has been an increase in fitness shoes and sandals that promise-simply by wearing them-to sculpt and mold problem areas.. But UC Health physicians say the promises may be a little steep.. I believe that these shoes could strengthen muscles and improve posture, but they are not a miracle fitness breakthrough, says Sarah Pritts, MD, a physician in the department of family and community medicine. Other than studies from the shoes manufacturing companies, there have been no reports showing that these shoes increase weight loss or calorie burn.. Pritts says the idea behind the shoes-particularly those with rounded, or rocker soles, to help the foot rock forward-originated as a form of physical therapy for ankle injuries.. They help increase strength in the muscles surrounding the ankle, she says. Most of these shoes are meant to cause instability, which forces wearers to use their muscles to maintain balance. Some of the shoes recreate what its like to walk in sand-helping ...
Testing for penicillin allergy can allow considerable savings, of 282 euros per patient hospitalized in Portuguese hospitals and up to 2103 euros in an outpatient setting. Considering conservative estimates, this would imply an estimated saving of 8.4 million euros per year in the context of hospitalization alone.. The conclusions of the economic assessment study carried out by researchers from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Porto (FMUP), namely from MEDCIDS - Department of Community Medicine, Health Information and Decision, and from CINTESIS argues in favor of the widespread performance of tests on patients labeled as allergic to penicillins, a class that includes antibiotics in common use, such as amoxicillin.. The scientists calculated the costs, simulating and comparing two different strategies. In the first scenario, the patients were subjected to diagnostic tests for penicillin allergy and only those who tested positive were treated as allergic. In the second scenario, the ...

Guidelines exist for chronic kidney disease (CKD) but are not well implemented in clinical practice. We evaluated the impact of a guideline-based clinical decision support system (CDSS) on laboratory monitoring and achievement of laboratory targets in stage 3-4 CKD patients. We performed a matched cohort study of 12,353 stage 3-4 CKD patients whose physicians opted to receive an automated guideline-based CDSS with CKD-related lab results, and 42,996 matched controls whose physicians did not receive the CDSS. Physicians were from US community-based physician practices utilizing a large, commercial laboratory (LabCorp®). We compared the percentage of laboratory tests obtained within guideline-recommended intervals and the percentage of results within guideline target ranges between CDSS and non-CDSS patients. Laboratory tests analyzed included estimated glomerular filtration rate, plasma parathyroid hormone, serum calcium, phosphorus, 25-hydroxy vitamin D (25-D), total carbon dioxide, transferrin
Gatifloxacin is an 8-methoxy fluoroquinolone with broad activity against respiratory tract pathogens, including those commonly associated with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). To evaluate the efficacy and safety of oral gatifloxacin 400 mg once daily for seven to 14 days, community-based physicians enrolled adult outpatients with confirmed or suspected CAP in a prospective, single-arm, open-label, noncomparative study. Of 1488 clinically evaluable patients with radiographically confirmed or clinically suspected CAP, 1417 (95.2%) were cured. All strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Moraxella catarrhalis, the most commonly isolated pathogens, were susceptible to gatifloxacin. Penicillin nonsusceptibility was seen in 32.6% of S. pneumoniae isolates, and beta-lactamase production was detected in H. influenzae (26.9%) and M. catarrhalis (88%) isolates. Clinical cure rates of 91%, 94%, and 92% were achieved in patients with S. pneumoniae, H. influenzae, and M. catarrhalis,
