The Farmer Field School: a method for enhancing the role of rural communities in malaria control ? (1/347)Malaria has strong linkages with agriculture, and farmers in malarious regions have a central position in creating or controlling the conditions that favour disease transmission. An interdisciplinary and integrated approach is needed to involve farmers and more than one sector in control efforts. It is suggested that malaria control can benefit from a complementary intervention in rural development, the Farmer Field School (FFS) on Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This is a form of education that uses experiential learning methods to build farmers' expertise, and has proven farm-level and empowerment effects. The benefits of incorporating malaria control into the IPM curriculum are discussed. An example of a combined health-agriculture curriculum, labeled Integrated Pest and Vector Management (IPVM), developed in Sri Lanka is presented. Institutional ownership and support for IPVM could potentially be spread over several public sectors requiring a process for institutional learning and reform. (+info)
Is the Internet a useful and relevant source for health and health care information retrieval for German cardiothoracic patients? First results from a prospective survey among 255 patients at a German cardiothoracic surgical clinic. (2/347)BACKGROUND: It is not clear how prevalent Internet use among cardiopathic patients in Germany is and what impact it has on the health care utilisation. We measured the extent of Internet use among cardiopathic patients and examined the effects that Internet use has on users' knowledge about their cardiac disease, health care matters and their use of the health care system. METHODS: We conducted a prospective survey among 255 cardiopathic patients at a German university hospital. RESULTS: Forty seven respondents (18 %) used the internet and 8,8 % (n = 23) went online more than 20 hours per month. The most frequent reason for not using the internet was disinterest (52,3 %). Fourteen patients (5,4 %) searched for specific disease-related information and valued the retrieved information on an analogous scale (1 = not relevant, 5 = very relevant) on median with 4,0. Internet use is age and education dependent. Only 36 (14,1 %) respondents found the internet useful, whereas the vast majority would not use it. Electronic scheduling for ambulatory visits or postoperative telemedical monitoring were rather disapproved. CONCLUSION: We conclude that Internet use is infrequent among our study population and the search for relevant health and disease related information is not well established. (+info)
Parents of deaf children seeking hearing loss-related information on the internet: the Australian experience. (3/347)Parents whose children are diagnosed in an infant screening program are required to make some difficult choices about the management of the hearing loss at a time when they are emotionally vulnerable. They are required to evaluate information and outcomes regarding issues such as technology for hearing impairment, communication options, education, and rehabilitation. The World Wide Web has become an important resource of health information for both health consumers and practitioners. The ability to obtain accurate health information online quickly, conveniently, and privately provides opportunity to make informed decisions. However, little is known about the level of the use of the Internet to acquire health information, particularly in the case of parents of deaf children seeking information. This study confirms that searches for health information on the Internet are conducted primarily by mothers. In the Australian context, there is minimal online information available to families beyond early intervention. Information on education issues, mental health, and deafness or the day-to-day management of a child or adolescent with a hearing loss are neglected topics on Web sites. This study also revealed that the majority of respondents had never visited HealthInsite or Medline Plus, two gateway sites for reliable consumer health information, although the information on these sites is more generic in nature and unlikely to assist parents to make informed choices on complex issues such as communication options or education. However, the study suggested that half the parents have talked to their doctor or hearing professional about information they found on the Internet, which is an encouraging tendency. (+info)
Providing information about a flavor to preschoolers: effects on liking and memory for having tasted it. (4/347)This study sought to determine if providing affectively positive information about a flavor to preschool-aged children during tasting will increase recognition of and liking for the flavor and if the recognition and liking are associated. Forty-six 3- to 6-year-old children tasted 10 flavors: 5 presented with affectively positive information and 5 without. The 10 flavors were then presented again interspersed with 10 distracter flavors. Children reported whether they had tasted the flavor previously and provided hedonic ratings for each flavor. Children's ability to remember having tasted a flavor was greater when the flavor was presented with affectively positive information than without in children throughout the age range of 3-6 years. In children younger than 4.5 years, the provision of information had no effect on hedonic rating, whereas in older children, the provision of information was associated with greater hedonic ratings. We conclude that providing affectively positive information to children about a flavor can increase their ability to recognize the flavor as previously tasted and increases hedonic rating of the flavor in children older than 4.5 years.

Health information seeking among Mbararan adolescents: results from the Uganda Media and You survey. (5/347)To maximize scarce intervention dollars, pediatricians and other adolescent health professionals must position health promotion efforts in mediums that most effectively reach youth. This may be especially true in resource-limited settings where access to primary health care and medications is limited. To improve the efficiency and impact of disease prevention and health promotion efforts in resource-limited settings, we examine sources of health information cited by adolescents in Mbarara Uganda. Participants in the Uganda Media and You survey were students aged 12-18 (n = 500) randomly identified in five secondary schools in Mbarara municipality, Uganda. Ninety-three percent of eligible and invited youth completed the cross-sectional, pencil-and-paper survey. Four in five adolescents (81%) indicated they turned to parents, teachers, and other adults while around half read a book/went to the library (56%) or turned to siblings and friends (50%) for information about health and disease. More than one in three (38%) indicated that they used the computer and Internet to search for health information. Older versus younger respondents tended to rely upon siblings and friends for all types of health questions. On the other hand, younger versus older youth were significantly more likely to turn to parents, teachers, and other adults for their questions about sexual health. Adults may be an important component of effective disease prevention and health promotion campaigns. Multiple delivery methods may be especially effective for reaching older adolescents. Technology also may be an important health promotion tool in resource-limited settings. (+info)
Evaluating environmental tobacco smoke exposure in a group of Turkish primary school students and developing intervention methods for prevention. (6/347)BACKGROUND: In countries like Turkey where smoking is highly prevalent, children's exposure to tobacco smoke is an important public health problem. The goals of this study were to determine the self-reported environmental tobacco smoke exposure status of primary school students in grades 3 to 5, to verify self-reported exposure levels with data provided from a biomarker of exposure, and to develop methods for preventing school children from passive smoking. METHODS: The study was conducted on 347 primary school students by using a standard questionnaire and urinary cotinine tests. Children with verified ETS exposure were randomly assigned to 2 intervention groups. Two phone interviews were conducted with the parents of the first group regarding their children's passive smoking status and its possible consequences. On the other hand, a brief note concerning urinary cotinine test result was sent to parents of the second group. Nine months after the initial urinary cotinine tests, measurements were repeated in both groups. RESULTS: According to questionnaire data, 59.9% of the study group (208 of 347) were exposed to ETS. Urinary cotinine measurements of children were highly consistent with the self-reported exposure levels (P < 0.001). Two different intervention methods were applied to parents of the exposed children. Control tests suggested a remarkable reduction in the proportion of those children demonstrating a recent exposure to ETS in both groups. Proportions of children with urinary cotinine concentrations 10 ng/ml or lower were 79.5% in Group I and 74.2% in Group II (P > 0.05). CONCLUSION: Self-reported ETS exposure was found to be pretty accurate in the 9-11 age group when checked with urinary cotinine tests. Only informing parents that their children' ETS exposure were confirmed by a laboratory test seems to be very promising in preventing children from ETS. (+info)
Developing a consumer evaluation tool of weight control strategy advertisements on the Internet. (7/347)To develop two evaluation tools for weight loss and weight gain advertisements on the Internet in order to help consumers to evaluate the quality of information within these advertisements. One hundred websites identified by Internet search engines for weight loss and weight gain strategies (50 websites each) were evaluated using two specific scoring instruments, developed by adapting questions from the 'DISCERN' tool and reviewing all related weight control guidelines and advertising regulations. The validity and reliability of the adapted tools were tested. Our evaluation tools rated the information from most websites as poor quality (70%). In the case of weight loss strategies, statements about rapid (18%) and permanent (28%) weight loss caused concern as well as lack of sensible advice about dieting and a lack of product warnings (84%). Safety concerns relating to weight gain products were the lack of warnings about side effects in products containing steroids and creatine (92%). The adapted tools exhibited acceptable validity and reliability. Quality of information within weight control advertisements on the Internet was generally poor. Problems of false claims, little advice on healthy ways to modify weight and few warnings on side effects have been highlighted in this study. (+info)
The development and evaluation of written medicines information for type 2 diabetes. (8/347)Written Medicines Information (WMI) is regarded as a key component in diabetes consumer education. In Australia, there is a paucity of WMI that specifically tailors to the extensive array of medicines used for the lifelong management of Type 2 diabetes. This research project aimed to employ a novel framework, the 'Consumer Involvement Cycle', to investigate consumer perspectives and needs of medicines information for Type 2 diabetes and develop appropriate WMI for the Type 2 diabetes population. The Consumer Involvement Cycle involved people with Type 2 diabetes and health professionals (HPs) working in partnership to design a series of WMI, incorporating a range of consumer-conceived ideas and concepts with professional evaluation from an expert panel of reviewing HPs. A total of 12 leaflets were developed. The Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Score for the leaflets was approximately 8.0, which is considered to be 'fairly easy', in other words easily understood by a large proportion of the general public. The Consumer Involvement Cycle was validated as a useful framework in developing and evaluating appropriate consumer information. Consumer perspectives should be sought and well incorporated throughout the process of designing and assessing educational materials intended for consumer use. (+info)

Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS), 2003
Data Collection Notes: The data available for download are not weighted and users will need to weight the data prior to analysis.. Analyses of large HINTS domains usually produce reliable estimates, but analyses of small domains may yield unreliable estimates, as indicated by their large variances. Users should pay particular attention to the standard error and coefficient of variation (relative standard error) for estimates of means, proportions, and totals. Small sample sizes for particular analyses will tend to result in unstable estimates. Additional information about sampling, interviewing, sampling error, weighting, and the universe of each question may be found in the codebook documentation.. Variable names containing more than 16 characters were truncated in order to be compatible with current statistical programs. Therefore, variable names may differ slightly from those in the original documentation.. Each iteration of HINTS consists of a cross-sectional independent sample; however, ...

For example, one in 10 Americans (11 percent) surveyed believe that if it were not for web-based health information, "they might already be dead or severely incapacitated." In addition, a quarter of those surveyed use symptom checker websites or home-based diagnosis technology as much as they visit the doctor, while another 27 percent use these interactive applications instead of going ...

Informal caregivers provide unpaid care to their physically or mentally ill loved ones and play a critical role in the healthcare delivery. eHealth tools, including the broadband internet, can facilitate care processes and impact the caregiving burden through seeking health information and health communication. This study examines the predictors of access to broadband internet and the factors associated with health information seeking and health communication among informal caregivers with broadband internet. We used data from cycles 1 and 2 of the Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS 5) and employed generalized linear regression models with the maximum likelihood estimation. Specifically, we performed a two-part model: (1) a logistic regression model of broadband internet access among all caregivers (n = 929) and (2) a logistic regression model of health information seeking and health communication among caregivers with broadband internet access (n = 404). We found that caregivers ...

Dionysius: A Framework for Modeling Hierarchical User Interactions in Recommender Systems
Real-time large-scale personalized recommendation systems power several user-facing products at many social media and web plat- forms. To meet business requirements, such applications must score millions of structured candidate documents associated with each query, offer a high degree of data freshness, and respond with low latency. To address these challenges, many such systems in practice make use of content based recommendation models based on logis- tic regression. A fundamental problem with content based models is that they are based primarily on the explicit user context in the form of user profile, but do not take into account implicit user con- text in the form of user interactions. We address the following problem: How do we incorporate user item interaction signals as part of the relevance model in a large-scale personalized recommendation system such that, (1) the ability to interpret the model and explain the recommendations is retained, and (2) the existing infrastructure designed ...
Patent US7613736 - Sharing music essence in a recommendation system - Google Patents
A system for sharing playlists and playlist essence with different users. A user desiring to share his or her playlist generates the playlist and a playlist characterization. The playlist characterization is based on acoustic analysis data of one or more songs in the playlist. The playlist and playlist characterization is then transmitted to another end user device. The end user device receiving the shared playlist searches the users music collection for the songs in the playlist. If a gap is detected in the playlist because the receiving user does not own a particular song, the receiving end user devices automatically selects another song that is owned by the user to fill-in the gap. The song is selected based on the playlist characterization with the aim of preserving the essence of the shared playlist.

Use of online health information to manage children's health care: a prospective study investigating parental decisions | BMC...
The results support the TPB in that attitude, subjective norm, and PBC predicted parents intentions (Hypothesis 1). These findings suggest that parents who have more favourable attitudes toward using online information to manage their childs health care, perceive pressure from important referents to engage in this behaviour, and who believe they have higher levels of control regarding their ability to do so, will have stronger intentions to use information from the internet to manage their childs health care. In the prediction of parents behaviour, the TPB was partially supported (Hypothesis 2) as intention, but not PBC, predicted parents use of online information to manage their childs health care. This finding suggests that parents who have stronger intentions to perform the target behaviour are more likely to make decisions to do so.. The finding that PBC did not emerge as a significant predictor of behaviour may be explained by parents lack of accuracy in judging how much control they ...
The consumer health market continued to grow in France in current value terms in 2019, with growth at a very similar level to the previous two years. However, many players were concerned by two main negative factors. The first of which was limited ailments in 2018 and, to a lesser extent, in early 2019.

OBJECTIVE: Health-related websites have developed to be much more than information sites: they are used to exchange experiences and find support as well as information and advice. This paper documents the development of a tool to compare the potential consequences and experiences a person may encounter when using health-related websites. METHODS: Questionnaire items were developed following a review of relevant literature and qualitative secondary analysis of interviews relating to experiences of health. Item reduction steps were performed on pilot survey data (n=167). Tests of validity and reliability were subsequently performed (n=170) to determine the psychometric properties of the questionnaire. RESULTS: Two independent item pools entered psychometric testing: (1) Items relating to general views of using the internet in relation to health and, (2) Items relating to the consequences of using a specific health-related website. Identified sub-scales were found to have high construct validity, internal

And although the accuracy of these facts and figures may sometimes be dubious, the average consumers awareness and expectations of the quality and nutritional content of their favourite foods and beverages are certainly higher than ever before. Addressing both the sensitivity these customers have for the composition of foods as well as an increasingly expansive regulatory landscape presents a variety of scientific and operational challenges for manufacturers around the world.. In order to overcome these challenges, food, beverage and ingredient producers must continuously evaluate food testing methods, and adopt those that w ...

Jeff's Search Engine Caffè: July 18, 2010
In this paper, we present a log-based study estimating the user value of trail following. We compare the relevance, topic coverage, topic diversity, novelty, and utility of full trails over that provided by sub-trails, trail origins (landing pages), and trail destinations (pages where trails end). Our findings demonstrate significant value to users in following trails, especially for certain query types. The findings have implications for the design of search systems, including trail recommendation systems that display trails on search result pages ...
Chana Joffe-Walt › Price Disparities Common In Health Care System
Prices for identical goods and services are usually the same or very close at competing businesses. Thats not the case when it comes to health care - not by a long shot. For example, in Pensacola, Fla., there are huge price disparities for MRI tests. Its not a matter of greed or poor decision-making by MRI providers or a lack of consumer awareness. For better or worse, its the way our insurance-based health care system works. Listen here.. ...
Analysis of the Shelf-life Food Additives Market in Brazil
The shelf-life food additives market is growing in Brazil, especially led by an increase in the demand for convenience foods. Currently, hindered phenols are the predominant additives in volume, followed by natural extracts segments. New healthy trends and consumers awareness regarding health issues is expected to increase, decreasing synthetic additives consumption. However, the shift is expected to happen in the long term, as natural and healthier alternatives are more expensive and price is still an important factor in the market. Major market participants are Eastman, Camlin Fine Science, Danisco, DSM, Basf, Naturex, and Kalsec. ...

Signals, Inference, and Networks | Coordinated Science Laboratory
Increasingly, both routine and critical decisions and predictions are made by sophisticated algorithms on the basis of large volumes of data. Salient examples include credit scoring, product recommendation systems, health care analytics, and financial forecasting; emerging technologies, such as self-driving cars, also rely heavily on fast, reliable, and safe algorithmic decision-making. Further, data can be used not just to reason about the world but create ideas and artifacts that have never been imagined before. Moreover, social and physical scientists are embracing machine learning and data analytics to contend with the massive datasets that are quickly becoming the norm in their research. How can we guarantee that the quality of predictions and decisions made by these algorithms continues to improve, while being able to store, summarize, and manipulate data at scale? How can we control overfitting when the same dataset is reused by multiple interconnected learning algorithms? How can we ...
Provably Correct Algorithms for Matrix Column Subset Selection with Selectively Sampled Data
We consider the problem of matrix column subset selection, which selects a subset of columns from an input matrix such that the input can be well approximated by the span of the selected columns. Column subset selection has been applied to numerous real-world data applications such as population genetics summarization, electronic circuits testing and recommendation systems. In many applications the complete data matrix is unavailable and one needs to select representative columns by inspecting only a small portion of the input matrix. In this paper we propose the first provably correct column subset selection algorithms for partially observed data matrices. Our proposed algorithms exhibit different merits and limitations in terms of statistical accuracy, computational efficiency, sample complexity and sampling schemes, which provides a nice exploration of the tradeoff between these desired properties for column subset selection. The proposed methods employ the idea of feedback driven sampling ...
