'Should a mammographic screening programme carry the warning: screening can damage your health!'? (1/1276)

The balanced presentation afforded by convening a Citizens' Jury when considering a major question such as the introduction of a breast screening programme is advocated. This method would enable account to be taken of all the costs, both human and financial, to all those affected, both participating and organizing, as well as the benefits. Provision of such a democratic opportunity enables consideration to be given to a broad range of factors, by selection of an appropriate range of witnesses, with the advantage of involving the lay public in this decision-making process. Attendance by health correspondents, medical journalists and other media representatives enables publicization of a democracy in action whilst helping to inform the wider debate. Such an exercise could inform whether the NHS BSP should continue in its current form.  (+info)

Diarrhoea prevention in Bolivia through point-of-use water treatment and safe storage: a promising new strategy. (2/1276)

A novel water quality intervention that consists of point-of-use water disinfection, safe storage and community education was field tested in Bolivia. A total of 127 households in two periurban communities were randomized into intervention and control groups, surveyed and the intervention was distributed. Monthly water quality testing and weekly diarrhoea surveillance were conducted. Over a 5-month period, intervention households had 44% fewer diarrhoea episodes than control households (P = 0.002). Infants < 1 year old (P = 0.05) and children 5-14 years old (P = 0.01) in intervention households had significantly less diarrhoea than control children. Campylobacter was less commonly isolated from intervention than control patients (P = 0.02). Stored water in intervention households was less contaminated with Escherichia coli than stored water in control households (P < 0.0001). Intervention households exhibited less E. coli contamination of stored water and less diarrhoea than control households. This promising new strategy may have broad applicability for waterborne disease prevention.  (+info)

Effect of discussion and deliberation on the public's views of priority setting in health care: focus group study. (3/1276)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the extent to which people change their views about priority setting in health care as a result of discussion and deliberation. DESIGN: A random sample of patients from two urban general practices was invited to attend two focus group meetings, a fortnight apart. SETTING: North Yorkshire Health Authority. SUBJECTS: 60 randomly chosen patients meeting in 10 groups of five to seven people. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Differences between people's views at the start of the first meeting and at the end of the second meeting, after they have had an opportunity for discussion and deliberation, measured by questionnaires at the start of the first meeting and the end of the second meeting. RESULTS: Respondents became more reticent about the role that their views should play in determining priorities and more sympathetic to the role that healthcare managers play. About a half of respondents initially wanted to give lower priority to smokers, heavy drinkers, and illegal drug users, but after discussion many no longer wished to discriminate against these people. CONCLUSION: The public's views about setting priorities in health care are systematically different when they have been given an opportunity to discuss the issues. If the considered opinions of the general public are required, surveys that do not allow respondents time or opportunity for reflection may be of doubtful value.  (+info)

The dangers of managerial perversion: quality assurance in primary health care. (4/1276)

The promotion of primary health care (PHC) at the Alma Ata conference has been followed by a variety of managerial initiatives in support of the development of PHC. One of the more promising vehicles has been the implementation of quality assurance mechanisms. This paper reviews recent examples of this genre and argues that the thrust of both primary health care and quality assurance are in danger of being distorted by a rather antiquated approach to management.  (+info)

Primary health care, community participation and community-financing: experiences of two middle hill villages in Nepal. (5/1276)

Although community involvement in health related activities is generally acknowledged by international and national health planners to be the key to the successful organization of primary health care, comparatively little is known about its potential and limitations. Drawing on the experiences of two middle hill villages in Nepal, this paper reports on research undertaken to compare and contrast the scope and extent of community participation in the delivery of primary health care in a community run and financed health post and a state run and financed health post. Unlike many other health posts in Nepal these facilities do provide effective curative services, and neither of them suffer from chronic shortage of drugs. However, community-financing did not appear to widen the scope and the extent of participation. Villagers in both communities relied on the health post for the treatment of less than one-third of symptoms, and despite the planners' intentions, community involvement outside participation in benefits was found to be very limited.  (+info)

Reducing the burden of coronary heart disease: health promotion, its effectiveness and cost. (6/1276)

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is one of five key areas identified in the Health of the Nation white paper produced by the Department of Health in 1992. The main CHD targets are to reduce death rates from CHD by at least 40% in people below 65 and 30% in those between 65 and 74 by the year 2000, respectively. Improvements in treatment and rehabilitation are expected to contribute to reducing the burden of CHD; however, in the long term, prevention is believed to hold the greatest potential. CHD health promotion therefore has a big role to play in securing the Health of the Nation targets. In contrast to treatment interventions, however, little is known about the effectiveness or cost-effectiveness of health promotion. The purpose of this article is two-fold. Its main aim is to illustrate the potential of health promotion in reducing the health burden of CHD to the turn of the century and beyond for a representative health purchaser. This is achieved with the use of an epidemiological model, Prevent, developed in the Netherlands to simulate the health outcomes associated with health promotion and prevention. A subsidiary aim is to present tentative information about the relative costs associated with different health promotion options.  (+info)

Exploring self-care and wellness: a model for pharmacist compensation by managed care organizations. (7/1276)

Self-care and wellness are rapidly becoming mainstays of practice for many pharmacists. Consumer confidence and trust in pharmacists provides continuing opportunities for pharmacists to create products and services to satisfy consumer demands related to disease prevention and healthcare delivery. We outline two pharmacy wellness programs designed to meet consumer needs, and offer them as models for pharmacists. Issues related to the program and extent of involvement by pharmacists are raised, including the role of the pharmacists in behavior modification efforts; selecting areas of focus (e.g., smoking cessation); working with physicians for referrals; enlightening community business leaders and managed care organizations to the economic benefits of the program; and developing strategies for fair purchase of services to achieve program goals and provide adequate compensation in return.  (+info)

Do local inhabitants want to participate in community injury prevention?: a focus on the significance of local identities for community participation. (8/1276)

During the 1980s the community became the object of new interest and enthusiasm among many health promotion practitioners and researchers, and the principle of community participation was put on the research agenda. However, recent evaluations of major community health promotion programs have questioned the value of community interventions. This paper argues that the community level need not be of less importance in future health promotion initiatives. It is discussed whether the cultural dimension and the significance of local identities, neglected in most community health promotion programs, should receive more attention when local inhabitants are invited to participate in health promotion or disease prevention activities. Results from a study of injury prevention projects in small Norwegian municipalities indicate that the inhabitants' identification with local spatial subarenas might play an important role when they decide to become involved in injury prevention. Contemporary sociological approaches to the community, focusing on developments of local identities in processes of globalization, have formed a theoretical frame of reference in this study.  (+info)

Biomedical research policy in many countries has adopted the principle of active involvement in research. However, how different approaches to involvement such as patient and public involvement/engagement (PPIE), qualitative research, participatory research, co-design and co-production sit alongside each other, is contentious and unclear. There has also been a subtle shift in the discourse, with the language of co-design and co-production used more widely in debates about involvement. This shift has surfaced once again debates about what counts as meaningful involvement. In this paper we seek to contribute to this debate by exploring boundaries and overlaps between them. We suggest that they share some underpinning philosophies and all are prone to be challenged on the grounds of tokenism despite avowed good intentions. We argue that these different approaches are not necessarily as distinct as is often advocated and question whether there is merit in this family of marginalised approaches ...

The Alliance for Rural Democracy welcomes the judgement handed down by the Constitutional Court yesterday declaring the Restitution of Land Rights Amendment Act 15 of 2014 invalid.. The case, brought by civil society and community-based organisations including affiliates of the ARD, concerned Parliaments obligation to facilitate public participation in its legislative process. In finding that the National Council of Provinces had failed to allow enough time for proper consultation on this Amendment Act, the Court said:. Given the gravitas of the legislation and the thoroughgoing public participation process that it warranted, the truncated timeline was inherently unreasonable. Objectively, on the terms stipulated by the timeline, it was simply impossible for the NCOP - and by extension the Provincial Legislatures - to afford the public a meaningful opportunity to participate.. The Court ordered that all claims lodged after 1 July 2014 should be put on hold until earlier claims are settled. ...

Once a project is put on the Union list, it is dubbed crucial for the EUs energy policy. Giving projects such priority status is hoped to stop any discussions about their necessity during the permit granting process before they even start. As part of the efforts to speed up permitting procedures, the Infrastructure Regulation also provides particular rules for public participation.. First, the member states (or rather, their competent authorities) draw up a manual of procedures. This must contain information about the applicable law, the necessary decisions and opinions, the contact details of the competent authorities etc. In the interest of increased transparency, project promoters must hand in a concept for public participation at the beginning of the permit granting process. Before the final and complete application file is handed in, a public consultation must take place. This aims e.g. to identify the most suitable location or trajectory for the infrastructure to be built. As part of this ...

COLUMBIA - Ron Sena of Charleston saw his first electronic cigarette while on a cruise with his wife.. A smoker for 40 years, Sena was aware of the regulations surrounding smoking in restaurants, so he was surprised when a man pulled out what looked to be a cigarette in the dining room.. Hey, guy, you cant smoke in here, he remembers saying. He was intrigued by the answer he got: Its water vapor, not smoke.. Thats when Senas interest in e-cigarettes was sparked, and he isnt alone.. E-cigarettes broke onto the American market in 2007, and the market has grown every year since. Sales are expected to hit $1 billion in 2013, according to Euromonitor.. Sena said that since quitting traditional smoking and picking up the electronic version, his lung function and senses of taste and smell have improved dramatically.. He felt so strongly about the health benefits of the products that he started his own business making refill cartridges for the devices.. Many people feel the way Sena does about ...
ARLINGTON, VA-Training cashiers or hanging a We Card sign in the window isnt the only thing retailers need to do to truly prevent tobacco or other age-restricted product sales to minors.. ***. Helping retailers successfully prevent e-vapor sales to minors is also a principal focus for We Card. In addition to state law requirements that require retailers to deny sales of those products to minors, in 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) started its regulation of e-cigarette and vaping products. In 2017, FDA has conducted nearly 100,000 store inspections using minors to check if retailers are asking for ID and denying minors attempts to purchase tobacco and e-vapor products.. ...

California has a unique variant of anti-SLAPP legislation. In 1992 California enacted Code of Civil Procedure § 425.16, a statute intended to frustrate SLAPPs by providing a quick and inexpensive defense.[6] It provides for a special motion that a defendant can file at the outset of a lawsuit to strike a complaint when it arises from conduct that falls within the rights of petition or free speech. The statute expressly applies to any writing or speech made in connection with an issue under consideration or review by a legislative, executive, or judicial proceeding, or any other official proceeding authorized by law, but there is no requirement that the writing or speech be promulgated directly to the official body. It also applies to speech in a public forum about an issue of public interest and to any other petition or speech conduct about an issue of public interest. To win on an anti-SLAPP (special motion to strike) motion, the defendant in the alleged SLAPP action must first show that the ...

Internationalized Domain Name ,IDN,IDNs are domain names that include characters used in the local representation of languages that are not written with the twenty-six letters of the basic Latin alphabet a-z. An IDN can contain Latin letters with diacritical marks, as required by many European languages, or may consist of characters from non-Latin scripts such as Arabic or Chinese. Many languages also use other types of digits than the European 0-9. The basic Latin alphabet together with the European-Arabic digits are, for the purpose of domain names, termed ASCII characters (ASCII = American Standard Code for Information Interchange). These are also included in the broader range of Unicode characters that provides the basis for IDNs. The hostname rule requires that all domain names of the type under consideration here are stored in the DNS using only the ASCII characters listed above, with the one further addition of the hyphen -. The Unicode form of an IDN therefore ...

Background: Maternal and neonatal mortality rate are still high in many developing countries. Lack of access to health facilities is one of the biggest challenges in the poorest households and in rural areas which contributes to high maternal and neonatal mortality. One strategy to improve health services utilization amongst the poorest and rural areas is by incorporating community participation into maternal and neonatal health programmes. Indonesia is one of the countries which make intensive efforts to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality using community participation strategy. Objectives: To identify the effectiveness of community participation strategies to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality and discuss the relevance of global experiences within the Indonesian context. Method: A systematic review. The relevant studies were searched electronically through two databases; Pub-Med and ISI Web of Knowledge. Pre-defined selection criteria applied to the filtered studies.

Findings show that using community participation can lead to designing new service models that fit within existing budgets and address local aspirations and healthcare priorities.. Participant communities were similar on dimensions of rurality, health status, aspirations and health priorities. They proposed a consistent set of requirements for remote Scottish primary healthcare. These were: resident practitioner(s), expert emergency triage, monitoring and anticipatory care of vulnerable people, community volunteering for health improvement, and leadership of community (health) volunteering.. Despite community similarities, community participation led to different service designs for three communities and one community did not participate at the final service design stage. These diverse outcomes suggest the influence of local contextual factors. This implies that different communities do want different things so suggesting the same standard model for all, apparently alike, rural communities is ...

Community development is a big part of life at Eclipse. It is strongly recommended that you identify somebody on your team to be responsible for community development activities. To cultivate a vibrant community of users, adopters, and committers, a project has to have somebody who is responsible for community development. Somebody has to own it. Everybody on the project team has to dedicate some significant amount of their time to community development, but one person on the team has to be responsible for it. For some projects, this may be a full time job; for others, it may be a huge part of one. In fact, may open source projects have more than one full time person working on community development. In some circles, this role might be called the projects evangelist, or maybe its the project lead that manages community development. Whatever the title, the role should be that of making everybody else successful in community development activities. Please see Community Development for Eclipse ...

Objective: Visualisation methods, primarily color-coded representation of sequence data, have been a predominant means of representation of DNA data. Algorithmic conversion of DNA sequence data to sound - sonification - represents an alternative means of representation that uses a different range of human sensory perception. We propose that sonification has value for public engagement with DNA sequence information because it has potential to be entertaining as well as informative. We conduct preliminary work to explore the potential of DNA sequence sonification in public engagement with bioinformatics. We apply a simple sonification technique for DNA, in which each DNA base is represented by a specific note. Additionally, a beat may be added to indicate codon boundaries or for musical effect. We report a brief analysis from public engagement events we conducted that featured this method of sonification. Results: We report on use of DNA sequence sonification at two public events. Sonification has ...

BACKGROUND: Community engagement has been recognised as an important aspect of the ethical conduct of biomedical research, especially when research is focused on ethnically or culturally distinct populations. While this is a generally accepted tenet of biomedical research, it is unclear what components are necessary for effective community engagement, particularly in the context of genomic research in Africa. METHODS: We conducted a review of the published literature to identify the community engagement strategies that can support the successful implementation of genomic studies in Africa. Our search strategy involved using online databases, Pubmed (National Library of Medicine), Medline and Google scholar. Search terms included a combination of the following: community engagement, community advisory boards, community consultation, community participation, effectiveness, genetic and genomic research, Africa, developing countries. RESULTS: A total of 44 articles and 1 thesis were retrieved of which 38

The high school students who took part in this research project were those that are typically underrepresented on the campuses of colleges and universities. Underrepresented students may, for one reason or another, be left out of the college-going culture and discussion in their [End Page 57] high schools. They often lack opportunities to engage in the most high-impact educational practices and may be unable to envision themselves in these roles. In preliminary interviews with the scholar-researchers, many indicated that their image of a researcher was a white man in a white lab coat, someone who looked nothing like them or their families, far removed from their worlds. They did not see themselves as potential researchers of any kind, and yet these same students overwhelmingly said yes when asked if they would like to participate in a research project, to learn to become researchers, and to devote substantial time and energy to better understanding the problems of college access in their ...

3.1 In the area of clinical research, clinical evaluation of drugs, clinical testing of medical devices and other scientific research programs, where the researcher can intervene in patient integrity, the EC VFN assesses and supervises their course in terms of safety and the preservation of the rights of clinical trial subjects. To this end, it shall, in particular, assess the competence of the examiners, the suitability of the equipment used, the procedures chosen and the groups of subjects of assessment.

http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?script=s... .. The flexibilization of PCC opening hours is a need felt in the territories, particularly to meet the needs of people who work standard office hours. However, associated with the flexibilization of working hours and cost reductions, this measure is likely to reduce both access and service quality, considering the complexity of healthcare. This set of flexibilization measures designed to give municipalities more autonomy in creating health teams in accordance with specific local needs may conflict with the aim of providing comprehensive quality care.. The findings also show the importance of encouraging public participation, monitoring patient satisfaction, and the co-production of healthcare. However, little mention is made as to how this will be done in practice. The construction of the SUS as a universal public system presupposes that health is a fundamental value for life and requires the mutual recognition that we belong to the same humanity, ...

Dunning and Kruger tested the hypotheses of the cognitive bias of illusory superiority on undergraduate students of introductory courses in psychology by examining the students' self-assessments of their intellectual skills in logical reasoning (inductive, deductive, abductive), English grammar, and personal sense of humor.

The competent students underestimated their class rank, and the incompetent students overestimated theirs, but the incompetent students did not estimate their class rank as higher than the ranks estimated by the competent group. Across four studies, the research indicated that the study participants who scored in the bottom quartile on tests of their sense of humor, knowledge of grammar, and logical reasoning overestimated their test performance and their abilities; despite test scores that placed them in the 12th percentile, the participants estimated they ...
