Strengthening user participation through health sector reform in Colombia: a study of institutional change and social representation. (1/33)

The challenge of achieving community participation as a component of health sector reform is especially great in low- and middle-income countries where there is limited experience of community participation in social policy making. This paper concentrates on the social representations of different actors at different levels of the health care system in Colombia that may hinder or enable effective implementation of the participatory policy. The study took place in Cali, Colombia and focused on two institutional mechanisms created by the state to channel citizen participation into the health sector, i.e. user associations and customer service offices. This is a case study with multiple sources of evidence using a combination of quantitative and qualitative social science methods. The analysis of respondents' representations revealed a range of practical concerns and considerable degree of scepticism among public and private sector institutions, consumer groups and individual citizens about user participation. Although participation in Colombia has been introduced on political, managerial and ethical grounds, this study has found that health care users do not yet have a meaningful seat around the table of decision-making bodies.  (+info)

The blue ribbon panel on depowered and advanced airbags - status report on airbag performance. (3/33)

In February 2000, a group of highway safety organizations sent a letter to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation expressing concern about a possible return to the 30-mph rigid barrier test using unbelted dummies previously required by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 208. The letter asked the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to expedite data collection of the real-world crash experience of airbag-equipped vehicles certified to the 30-mph sled test using unbelted dummies because of suggestions that depowered airbags may not provide the same level of protection, particularly to larger, unbelted occupants. For the same reason, the letter also recommended that the auto industry commit funding for additional data collection and to establish a panel of experts to evaluate the data. In response, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (Alliance) committed to funding a 3-year program to be managed by an independent third party. A panel of experts consisting of representatives from thehighway safety research community, the National Transportation Safety Board, academia, medical institutions, and the insurance industry was established as the Blue Ribbon Panel (BRP) for Evaluation of Depowered and Advanced Airbags and met for the first time in February 2001. The BRP also includes representatives from NHTSA and the automobile industry who participate as observers. The BRP held its first public meeting in April 2003 to provide an update of its activities and to summarize the real-world evidence on the performance of depowered airbags. This AAAM session will provide a brief summary of the public meeting.  (+info)

Performance of advanced air bags based on data William Lehman Injury Research Center and new NASS PSUs. (4/33)

The Ryder Trauma Center is a Level I trauma center that treats only the most severely injured occupants of vehicle crashes as well as other severe cases of trauma. The center investigates these crashes through funding provided by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers and the U.S. Department of Transportation-sponsored Crash Injury Research and Engineering Network (CIREN) program. MAIS 3+ nonfatal and fatal injuries comprise approximately 2 percent of the total NASS/CDS cases. Among the Ryder trauma center cases, 50 percent are MAIS 3+ and 25 percent are fatal. If the MAIS 3+ fatal and nonfatal injuries were considered as "failures" and the remaining 98 percent with MAIS 2 or less as successes, this could be equated to the 75 percent failure rate (MAIS 3+ and fatal) in the trauma center cases for analysis purposes. The total database of frontal cases with no rollover consists of 147 drivers with first-generation airbags and 58 cases with second-generation airbags.  (+info)

Health co-operatives: review of international experiences. (5/33)

There is renewed interest in the revival of health co-operative as a "third option" for meeting health care needs of populations in developing countries in the context of health sector reforms. This article reviews some international experiences with health co-operatives. We briefly assess the history of health co-operatives in industrialized countries where they originated and review past experience from China and the states of Kerala and Gujarat in India to explore the viability of health co-operatives for the provision of health care. In industrialized countries, co-operatives came into existence as autonomous entities with voluntary participation, aiming to contribute to the welfare of their members. In recent years, however, co-operatives are being envisaged as a mechanism to overcome economic barriers in access to health care, despite lack of evidence of their cost-effectiveness and sustainability. In China, health co-operatives achieved universal coverage of basic health services but became dysfunctional when state support was withdrawn. In Gujarat/India, co-operatives have been useful to provide primary health care services and not as a mechanism to run hospitals and provide medical care for the general population. In Kerala/India, health co-operatives could not successfully compete with expanding state health services and private services unless they were managed like private enterprises. In terms of managerial effectiveness and sustainability co-operatives can not be "prescribed" to compensate for the deteriorating access to health services following market-oriented health sector reforms in developing countries.  (+info)

Consumers as tutors - legitimate teachers? (6/33)

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to research the feasibility of training mental health consumers as tutors for 4th year medical students in psychiatry. METHODS: A partnership between a consumer network and an academic unit in Psychological Medicine was formed to jointly develop a training package for consumer tutors and a curriculum in interviewing skills for medical students. Student attitudes to mental health consumers were measured pre and post the program. All tutorial evaluation data was analysed using univariate statistics. Both tutors and students evaluated the teaching program using a 4 point rating scale. The mean scores for teaching and content for both students and tutors were compared using an independent samples t-test. RESULTS: Consumer tutors were successfully trained and accredited as tutors and able to sustain delivery of tutorials over a 4 year period. The study found that whilst the medical students started with positive attitudes towards consumers prior to the program, there was a general trend towards improved attitude across all measures. Other outcomes for tutors and students (both positive and negative) are described. CONCLUSIONS: Consumer tutors along with professional tutors have a place in the education of medical students, are an untapped resource and deliver largely positive outcomes for students and themselves. Further possible developments are described.  (+info)

"Asia is now the priority target for the world anti-tobacco movement": attempts by the tobacco industry to undermine the Asian anti-smoking movement. (7/33)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To identify and examine the strategies utilised by multinational tobacco companies to undermine and discredit key anti-tobacco activists and organisations in the Asian region. METHOD: A series of case studies drawing upon material gathered through systematic reviews of internal tobacco industry documents. DATE SOURCES: Tobacco industry documents made public as part of the settlement of the Minnesota Tobacco Trial and the Master Settlement Agreement. RESULTS: The industry sought to identify, monitor, and isolate key individuals and organisations. The way industry went about fulfilling this mandate in the Asian region is discussed. Industry targetted individuals and agencies along with the region's primary anti-smoking coalition. CONCLUSIONS: Attack by multinational tobacco companies is a virtual quid pro quo for any individual or agency seriously challenging industry practices and policies. Understanding their tactics allows anticipatory strategies to be developed to minimise the effectiveness of these attacks.  (+info)

Advocacy for mental health: roles for consumer and family organizations and governments. (8/33)

The World Health Organization urges countries to become more active in advocacy efforts to put mental health on governments' agendas. Health policy makers, planners and managers, advocacy groups, consumer and family organizations, through their different roles and actions, can move the mental health agenda forward. This paper outlines the importance of the advocacy movement, describes some of the roles and functions of the different groups and identifies some specific actions that can be adopted by Ministries of Health. The mental health advocacy movement has developed over the last 30 years as a means of combating stigma and prejudice against people with mental disorders and improving services. Consumer and family organizations and related NGOs have been able to influence governments on mental health policies and laws and educating the public on social integration of people with mental disorders. Governments can promote the development of a strong mental health advocacy sector without compromising this sector's independence. For instance, they can publish and distribute a directory of mental health advocacy groups, include them in their mental health activities and help fledgling groups become more established. There are also some advocacy functions that government officials can, and indeed, should perform themselves. Officials in the ministry of health can persuade officials in other branches of government to make mental health more of a priority, support advocacy activities with both general health workers and mental health workers and carry out public information campaigns about mental disorders and how to maintain good mental health. In conclusion, the World Health Organization believes mental health advocacy is one of the pillars to improve mental health care and the human rights of people with mental disorders. It is hoped that the recommendations in this article will help government officials and activists to strengthen national advocacy movements.  (+info)

From 1975 through 2002, annual traffic fatalities decreased from 44,525 to 42,850, while the rate of fatalities per 100 million vehicle miles traveled decreased from 3.35 to 1.51. However, decreases in fatalities have leveled off since the early 1990s. Since 1999, the number of alcohol-related fatalities has risen. In 1998, the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century funded a series of highway safety programs. These programs, administered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), increased funding to the states for activities designed to encourage, among other things, the use of seat belts and to prevent drinking and driving. The states establish highway safety goals and initiate projects to help reach those goals. NHTSA provides advice, training, and technical assistance to states and can use management reviews and improvement plans as tools to help monitor and strengthen the states performance. This testimony is based on two recent GAO reports that discuss the ...
The KILEN material showed reports of potentially serious psychiatric ADRs. Some psychiatric ADRs were more reported with certain antidepressants but anxiety, insomnia and suicidal behavior were reported for all drugs. But do these consumer reports differ according to information found in the Summary of Product Characteristics (SPC)? If we compare reports to KILEN between the years 2002-2009 with FASS 2004 [27] and FASS 2009 [28] we take in consideration that it often takes years before new ADRs are published in FASS. FASS is the most used tool for health care professionals in Sweden to use when prescribing drugs and therefore of interest in a comparison with consumer reports. ADR information in FASS is mainly based on information from the pharmaceutical companies and a somewhat good correspondence to the consumers reports is expected. However, the consumer reports gave another perspective of experiences with antidepressants. The consumer reports to KILEN contained more potentially serious ...

Although personal determinants of exercise behavior have been studied extensively, few investigators have examined the influence of the physical environment on exercise habits. A random sample of 2,053 residents of San Diego, CA, were surveyed regarding exercise habits and other variables. A total of 385 exercise facilities in San Diego were classified into categories of either free or pay. After the addresses of respondents and facilities were located on a grid-map and coded, the density of exercise facilities around each respondents home address was computed. Subjects who reported engaging in three or more exercise sessions per week reported a statistically greater density of pay facilities near their homes than did those who reported no exercise sessions, after controlling for age, education, and income. The finding suggests an association between proximity of exercise facilities and frequency of exercise ...

Theyve become household names: Celebrex, Lipotor, Pristiq, Toviaz. Youve probably seen the ads on television, and strained to hear long and frightening lists of warnings about side effects.. Drugmakers shell out billions of dollars each year to target consumers with those ads ($4.3 billion in 2009) and even more for promotions aimed at doctors ($6.6 billion in 2009), according to IMS Health, an industry group that monitors drugs sales and marketing.. The trouble is that the ads work. Consumer Reports research shows about one out of every five people who take a prescription medication said theyve asked their doctor to prescribe a drug theyve seen advertised; of those, 59 percent said the doctors complied, according to a survey in May 2010 by the Consumer Reports National Research Center. But what the ads wont tell you is that those newer drugs are often no safer or more effective than older medications that cost a fraction of the price.. Thats where Consumer Reports Best Buy Drugs comes ...

A new study by Consumer Reports found arsenic levels that exceed federal drinking water standards in 10 percent of the apple and grape juices tested. The group also found excessive levels of lead in 25 percent of grape and apple juices. Arsenic and lead are both poisonous and can cause health problems, especially in pregnant women, infants, and young children. Kids drink a lot of juice-more than one-third drink more than recommended by pediatricians. Although there is no technical limit for these chemicals in most juices and foods, these levels found in five brands exceed the 10 parts per billion allowed in drinking water for arsenic and the 5 ppb allowed for lead (find detailed information about individual brands tested here in a PDF). Consumer Union, Consumer Reports advocacy arm, called for the Food and Drug Administration to establish maximal safe levels for these contaminants in juices. Several studies suggests that chronic exposure to arsenic and lead-even at levels below water ...
The National Cattlemans Beef Association has released a statement concerning a recent Consumer Reports article Whats Really in Your Meat? as nothing more than sensationalist journalism.

The article, which bases its findings on unconfirmed residue screening tests of meat, draws false and misleading conclusions meant to deceive consumers and reduce the consumption of meat.. The unconfirmed results utilized by the author were erroneously released by USDAs Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) in March of this year following receipt of a Freedom of Information Act request. After realizing the mistake, FSIS worked to correct the error and provide accurate data from confirmed tests. However, even after accurate information was provided by FSIS, Consumer Reports continued to utilize the inaccurate information on which the article is based.. In a response issued Aug. 29 by FSIS, the agency calls the story sensational and fear-based infotainment aimed at confusing ...

A new report released by Consumer Reports finds that most Americans want meat products that are sold in supermarkets to be antibiotic-free. The report, titled Meat On Drugs: The Overuse of Antibiotics in Food Animals and What Supermarkets and Consumers Can Do to Stop It, cites that 86 percent of those polled think antibiotic-free meat should be sold in major supermarket outlets, and more than one-third of those consumers would pay more money for it.
But, more than one-third of Americans refused to bargain for better deals on products and services; Plus, six savvy haggling tips Yonkers, NY - Consumers who dont haggle are leaving money on the table. A new nationally representative survey of 2,000 Americans by Consumer Reports found that just 48 percent of
Product reviews written by real people are perhaps the most underappreciated slice of the consumer-generated-media universe, the explosion of which has captivated the advertising and media worlds. But as marketers fixate on getting their virals on YouTube and making friends on MySpace, these relatively unsexy product write-ups have quietly become the most common form of consumer content -- Forrester [Research] puts it as the most-used form of peer-generated content -- not to mention the one with the most direct impact on purchase decisions.

Economical and easy to prepare in many ways, eggs appear to be perfect little protein packages. But Consumer Reports notes that the advice on eating them seems to change frequently, especially concerning whether their cholesterol content is safe for people with cardiovascular disease. So whats a health-conscious consumer supposed to do? One large egg has 186 milligrams of cholesterol in the yolk, while the egg white is cholesterol-free. An August 2012 study suggested a link between egg yolk consumption and plaque buildup in the carotid artery, a significant predictor of heart disease. That study contrasts with earlier research that found no evidence linking egg consumption with coronary disease. What appears to be more important than an individual food is total cholesterol intake, regardless of whether it comes from eggs or other food sources such as full-fat dairy products or meat, says Dr. Alice H. Lichtenstein, director and senior scientist at the Cardiovascular Nutrition Laboratory at ...

According to the a news release from LHSC, at least 619 children across the United States have died of heatstroke after being left unattended in vehicles that become overheated since 1998.. Beginning this summer, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is implementing its Wheres Baby?

The 2008 Farm Bill mandated the creation of such a program, to be administered by USDAs Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), which was supposed to be implemented by December 2009, reports Food and Water Watch.. In 2013, Americans consumed more than 305 million pounds of catfish, 78 per cent of which was imported, mostly from Viet Nam, said Food & Water Watch Executive Director Wenonah Hauter.. Americans want to be sure that the catfish they eat and feed their families is safe, yet bowing to pressure from importers and other nations, the Obama administration continues to hold up the implementation of this important rule. Enough is enough.. The Food and Drug Administration currently regulates catfish. Domestic catfish processors are subject to FDA inspections once every five to 10 years and only two percent of imported catfish gets inspected.. The new inspection program would subject domestic catfish processors to daily USDA inspection, and imported catfish, much of which is raised in ...

When we contacted the Department of Justice for support for Sessions claim about car accidents, spokeswoman Lauren Ehrsam sent us a link to a Washington Post article from April 26 that outlines the findings of a report by two nonprofits - the Governors Highway Safety Association and the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility.. The association represents state and territorial highway safety offices that implement federal grants to improve traffic safety. The foundation, funded by eight major alcohol companies including Bacardi U.S.A. Inc. and Beam Suntory, says its mission is to fight against drunk driving and underage drinking.. The report actually looks at data from 2015, not 2016, as Sessions said. The data were compiled from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations Fatality Analysis Reporting System. The NHTSA is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation.. The report does say that NHTSA data from 2015 show drugs were present in 43% of the fatally-injured drivers ...

Chants expertise in protecting consumer rights has been recognized and sought by various organizations. For example, when the late Peter Jennings decided to air a special, multiple-part series on consumer arbitration clauses on ABC World News Tonight with Peter Jennings, the producers of the show turned to Chant to serve as a consultant. Chants work and experiences have been featured in multiple venues including radio, television, newspapers, magazines, etc. Chant is specially well suited to represent injured consumers because, in addition to being a lawyer, Chant is a consumer activist who has worked hand-in-hand with various consumer protection organizations such as the Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights (FTCR), Cal PIRG, American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), Congress of California Seniors, Sierra Club and others to promote and preserve consumer rights.

The only way to safely escape the familiar interiors of our homes during this pandemic is to go outside into the fresh air, bask in the beauty of nature and get some desperately needed exercise and sunshine.. Of course, youre using safety precautions to protect yourself from the virus - walking 6 feet or more from others, wearing a mask, avoiding touching your face, washing your hands - but have you thought of the necessity of protecting your skin?. The danger of skin cancer certainly hasnt disappeared during the age of coronavirus, and using sunscreen is more important than ever, experts say.. Melanoma, one of the most deadly forms of skin cancer, has been on the rise globally for decades. And while survival rates are getting better, melanoma is still the fifth most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States.. But before you slather on some sunscreen, you might want to check out the 2020 list of safer sunscreens put out by the Environmental Working Group, or EWG, a consumer organization ...
There are also associations that specialize in certain categories, such as GOED and the IPA.. Keep in mind, however, that you can join more than one association, and probably should consider doing so if your company is able, since in that way you maximize your firms chances of being on the front lines of promoting and defending the natural products industry, whoever is leading the charge.. Also remember that the most strategically minded trade associations are able to forge powerful collaborations with credible consumer groups on important or watershed issues. A perfect, recent, example of this was the coalition of all of the natural products trade groups, plus consumer organization Citizens for Health, which together successfully campaigned for the passage of the Dietary Supplement and Nonprescription Drug Consumer Protection Act (the AER Bill) in June 2006.. Another, more recent, example is Citizens for Healths push in support of AHPAs KeepSupplementsClean.org initiative. There are other ...

We studied whether the information presented on the internet by major interest groups gave a balanced account of the possible benefits and harms of mammographic screening; whether funding of interest groups was related to type of information; and whether the information was different from what was previously provided in pamphlets.1. We located websites produced by professional advocacy groups (such as cancer charities), governmental institutions, and consumer organisations from Australia, Canada, Denmark, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States. All of these countries have screening programmes, although so far only regionally in Denmark and Norway. We searched for breast cancer and mammography and screening and one of the included countries, primarily with the search engines Google and Yahoo (see appendix on bmj.com for details). By using these major search engines, we hoped to find the same websites that women would on the internet. The most popular sites ...

Delegates from consumer organizations in 119 countries opened a conference in Dhurban, South Africa, today. Near the top of their agenda is the controversy over genetically modified food.

This rating applies to vehicles other than the specific model and body style tested.. The Volvo S80 was introduced in the 1999 model year and modified beginning with 2000 models to include structural changes to improve occupant protection in frontal crashes. Beginning with 2001 models, the frontal airbags also were improved to include dual-stage inflators that permit low energy deployments in low severity crashes, sensors that reduce the likelihood of deployment in minor fender-benders, and vent holes positioned better to direct hot gasses away from a drivers hands.. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has evaluated the crashworthiness of the Volvo S80, based primarily on performance of a 2000 model in a 40 mph frontal offset crash test into a deformable barrier. The performance of 2001 and later models is rated separately from 2000s because the airbag modifications are expected to reduce or eliminate problems in restraint system performance observed in the 2000 model. Otherwise, ...
Splash programs create bridges between Sacramentos urban population and the natural world that surrounds them. Nature provides a limitless resource for play, exploration, and discovery, yet few urban children enjoy regular excursions in nature. Many city-dwelling families have lost the connection to the outdoors that was common in previous generations. This leaves most of the children in urbanized Sacramento County with little direct access to nature and its associated physical and mental health benefits. Centrally located in Sacramento County, Mather Field offers an oasis of vernal pools, grasslands, lakes and streams to explore, just 20 minutes from downtown Sacramento. Every year, the Splash Elementary Program brings over 2,000 elementary students to explore and investigate the wildlands at Mather Field. ...
