'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)

What is the best way to effectively identify and notify the public concerned about proposed activities affecting the environment? Are countries providing early public participation when all options, including the "zero" option (doing nothing), are genuinely open? Is it right if at public hearings the audience consists of a large group of men in suits with no elderly persons or women? How can Aarhus principles help peacebuilding in Myanmar and China? What are the obstacles to effective public participation in national climate change-related decision-making on the way to the Paris agreement?. These were some of the questions discussed at a meeting of the Task Force on Public Participation in Decision-making under the Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters (Aarhus Convention), held in Geneva on 23 and 24 February 2015 under the leadership of Italy. The meeting gathered representatives of numerous Parties to the ...

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. ...
The second pillar of the Aarhus Convention is based on the concept of participation and draws from Principle 10 of the Rio Declaration:
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 ...

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. The references of ...

Public involvement in research is when the research is carried out with or by members of the public rather than to, about, or for them. This includes, for example, working with research funders to prioritise research, offering advice as members of a project steering group, commenting on and developing research materials and undertaking research with research participants. For more information, see About public involvement. ...
Leaving dog waste on the ground can cause more than messy shoes and dirty looks from your neighbors. It also has a negative impact when rain washes it into our waterways and becomes harmful to your health and your pets health, too! Pet waste contains three times more bacteria than human waste. When it rains, residue and bacteria from the waste is washed into our local waterways where it can cause diseases in humans and animals. Richland County offers free pet waste stations for neighborhoods who enroll in the Trash the Poop program. For more information visit www.trashthepoop.com.. Richland County is also a part of the Richland Countywide Stormwater Consortium (RCSC), a collective of over 20 groups working together to keep stormwater clean around the county. Some of the program hosted by RCSC include Adopt-A-Stream, the Backyard Landscaping Series for homeowners, and professional development workshop.

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 ...

There is abundant material in the full report and its summaries that calls for public input into the process of determining exactly what types of germline gene editing should be permitted. For example, from the one-page report summary: "Ongoing reassessment and public participation should precede any clinical trials of heritable germline editing". This is a very clear call for public feedback. Nevertheless, at least some responses seem to argue that this sentiment was left out of the report. I believe this to be purposefully misleading. The report committee was co-chaired by a noted biomedical ethicist and regulatory expert. Moreover, the committee has several additional bioethicists in its roster, who all are well acquainted with the need for communication between the public, scientists and policymakers in order for sensible policies to be created. Furthermore - the report contains an entire chapter entitled "Public engagement". ! ...

June 21, 2004. When the National Council on Disability (NCD) invited public participation in the Native American Forum (Native Forum) held April 15, 2004 at the Santa Ana Pueblo Hyatt Regency Tamaya Hotel and Resort near Bernalillo, New Mexico, the purpose was to provide a dialogue opportunity for learning about issues and concerns linked to federal policy. In his delivery of the charge to forum discussion groups, NCDs Cultural Diversity Advisory Committee Liaison, Milton Aponte indicated that the Native Forum was less about one size fits all solutions and "more about trying to obtain authentic perspectives from [the participants]." NCD wanted to learn directly from people with disabilities, their families, other advocates, tribal and state leaders, service providers and other disability professionals.. Background: From an historical point of view, the Native Forum was aligned with NCDs record of broad and inclusive outreach to unserved and underserved people at the grassroots level. Building ...

Consumer-driven health plans appear to be succeeding at getting people to pay attention to their health costs and behavior, according to new research by EBRI.
Background. With mounting global environmental, social and economic pressures the resilience and stability of forests and thus the provisioning of vital ecosystem services is increasingly threatened. Intensified monitoring can help to detect ecological threats and changes earlier, but monitoring resources are limited. Participatory forest monitoring with the help of "citizen scientists" can provide additional resources for forest monitoring and at the same time help to communicate with stakeholders and the general public. Examples for citizen science projects in the forestry domain can be found but a solid, applicable larger framework to utilise public participation in the area of forest monitoring seems to be lacking. We propose that a better understanding of shared and related topics in citizen science and forest monitoring might be a first step towards such a framework.. Methods. We conduct a systematic meta-analysis of 1015 publication abstracts addressing "forest monitoring" and "citizen ...
In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, concern grew among scientists, clinicians, and public policymakers regarding the direction of clinical research. Over the previous five decades, the scientific community had benefited from significant progress in the realm of basic science research, backed by the publics long-term investment in it. The concern over clinical research stemmed from the idea that scientific discoveries of these past generations were not being appropriately translated. This was addressed with numerous targeted initiatives, including the Clinical Research Roundtable at the Institute of Medicine in June 2000. This initiative identified four major challenges to the progress of clinical research: (1) enhancing public participation in clinical research, (2) funding, (3) an adequately trained workforce, and (4) developing information systems (1). The last challenge mentioned, and the focus of this section, highlights the idea that the use of information technology (IT) and ...
The experiences of cross-border cooperation (CBC), undertaken not only in Europe but throughout the world, have enabled areas to gain greater importance in recent decades at an international level, showing potential for integrative functions and joint development as exemplified by several CBC projects. The present paper assesses the impact of CBC projects by analyzing a protocol established in 2013 between the cities of Elvas and Badajoz, which induced the creation of the Eurocity Elvas-Badajoz. The paper kicks off with a critical review on territorial factors for success in CBC areas, considering the analysis of several case studies throughout Europe. The lessons learned, taken from the analyzed case studies, and the identified territorial success factors were used as assessment points for the investigation of the target study area, the Eurocity ElvasBadajoz. The investigation explores public participation perceptions towards the identification of what changes with respect to standards of life with the

Systematic reviews of health effectiveness have traditionally been undertaken by teams of topic experts, primarily clinicians or health researchers. Nearly 10 years ago, the involvement of service users and carers was referred to as a phenomenon emerging out of the shadows1 which was relatively underdeveloped. Recent research confirms that user involvement remains relatively rare, with few organisations engaging consumers.2. In the field of community development, patient and public involvement (PPI) is not new. In the UK, for example, national legislation has reflected an increasing policy drive to involve patients, service users and carers in health research.3 ,4 PPI is regarded as an umbrella term, used to refer to a variety of stakeholders or end users/recipients/beneficiaries of research and means working with patients and the public as members of the research team.. Three rationales for PPI in designing primary health research have been put forward in the literature. First, PPI is ...
A cooperative process designed to foster involvement by all system users through a proactive public participation process conducted by the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), state Department of Transportation (state DOT), Federal Land Management Agencies (FMLA), and transit operators. The goal is to develop a common vision for the transportation system, as related to human and natural environmental issues, and prioritize projects to help achieve that vision. The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) identifies transportation strategies and projected revenues for a 20- to 30-year period. The transportation improvement program (TIP) allocates funding to specific projects over a 4-year period ...
These provisions lay a people-centred foundation upon which South African environmental law is constructed.78 The Constitution is the ultimate source of all environmental rights in South Africa.79 In addition, commentators have pointed out that a constitutionally entrenched environmental right can provide a "safety net" when existing laws or policies are inadequate to address given environmental problems, and can inhibit economic programmes that are detrimental to the environment, and, by providing procedural environmental rights, should promote greater public participation in the interpreting and enforcing of substantive environmental rights.80. The Constitution provides that the environment and nature conservation are areas of concurrent national and provincial legislative competence.81 National parks constitute an exception insofar as the provinces have no legislative competence in respect of them. A conflict between national and provincial legislation must be resolved in terms of section ...

Another remedy may be available to plaintiffs in states with Anti Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (Anti-SLAPP) statutes, such as the District of Columbia and California. While these lawsuits vary somewhat in their scope and in the remedies available thereunder, D.C.s Anti-SLAPP statute, D.C. Code § 16-5501 et seq. provides that "[a] party may file a special motion to dismiss any claim arising from an act in furtherance of the right of advocacy on issues of public interest within 45 days after service of the claim." See also, e.g., Cal. Civ. Proc. § 425.16 (Californias Anti-SLAPP statute). This "special motion to dismiss" is intended to prevent the assertion of claims or counterclaim "without substantial merit brought against individuals or groups with the intention of silencing the opponents, or at least diverting their resources."

Linux FCS IBM, the first and biggest IT vendor to champion Linux, has been gently rebuked for initially tolerating the community to further its own interests.. And IBM was forced to concede.. IBM was identified during a Linux Foundation conference debate on community participation as emblematic of big companies whove made the mistake of joining the efforts around Linux to further their own goals first, and to help development of the kernel second.. James Bottomley, Novell distinguished engineer, kernel maintainer, and chairman of the Foundations technical advisory board, said IBM initially approached Linux with the belief it had key technologies that should be in Linux, and pushed them upstream into the kernel.. These technologies, he said, first benefited IBM and only secondarily benefited the kernel.. "They broke down the technology into elements that would benefit IBM," Bottomley said.. He did not identify the technologies involved, but IBM engineers and expertise have been poured into ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Improving public involvement in health system decision making stands as a primary health policy goal. However, still limited guidance is available on how best to elicit preferences for health care programmes. This study examines a contingent choice technique to elicit preferences among health programmes, and named willingness to assign (WTAS). WTAS reveals relative (monetary-based) values of a set of competing public programmes under a hypothetical healthcare budget assessment. Experimental evidence is reported from a deliberative empirical study valuing ten health programmes in the context of the Catalan Health Service. Evidence from this experimental study reveals that within the context of multiple programmes, preferences are internally more consistent and slightly less affected by preference reversals as compared to values revealed from an adapted technique eliciting the willingness to pay (WTP) extra taxes. Another finding suggests that although programmes

In Europe many patients infected with HIV remain undiagnosed, although this percentage varies between 15-80% across the continent. In the UK it is estimated to be 27%. Undiagnosed HIV results in increased morbidity and mortality and reduced treatment response, as appropriate health interventions are delayed. It also has adverse public health implications, with those individuals unaware of their HIV status being more likely to transmit the virus.. An important public health issue is how to diagnose more individuals with HIV earlier in the course of their infection. In the US, the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has introduced testing guidelines whereby all individuals are tested, unless they object, at any point of contact with the healthcare system - the opt-out testing guidelines..

The Legislature. Under the draft there will be a bicameral legislature consisting of a National Assembly and a Senate. Both will be elective bodies [there will be no appointed members] and in each House half the members will be elected on a constituency basis and half by a system of proportional representation. This will ensure close contact with local electorates and adequate representation of smaller parties.. Primary legislative power will vest in the National Assembly; the Senate will not have power to initiate legislation but will be confined to checking, scrutinising and amending Bills passed by the National Assembly.. Parliament will be elected for a fixed five-year term, and each House will determine when and for how long it sits. In this important respect, therefore, Parliament will be independent of the Executive.. Both Houses of Parliament will be obliged to conduct their business openly and to facilitate public involvement in their legislative processes. The enactment of subsidiary ...
Caroline Levines Provoking Democracy gives an extremely compelling account of how Anglo-American law has, in counterintuitive ways, supported "avant garde" art, and why Anglo-American democracies depend, in turn, upon such art, which provides a dissident voice that pluralism and an orientation towards the future demand. Covering a broad range of topics, from public involvement in decisions about whether particular pieces of art should be displayed, to the operations of the House Un-American Activities Committee during the Cold War, to the role of originality in judicial determinations of what counts as art, Levines book furnishes ingenious readings of the dynamic interplay between particular figures and events. In the course of reading Provoking Democracy, one is shocked at how the CIA secretly funded the work of Abstract Expressionist painter Jackson Pollock to promote the ideal of American freedom internationally at the same time as American publics and media reviled his painting, but one ...
Nineteen sportsmens groups wrote Congress in support of Planning 2.0 revisions that created three additional opportunities for the public and key collaborators-like state and local governments-to be involved at the front-end of the land-use planning process. These additional steps were designed to increase agency transparency and public involvement, and these benefits are still sorely needed to boost overall satisfaction with the management of BLM public lands across the country.. "It is tragic to see so much hard work and public input go to waste, only to be replaced with uncertainty," says Steven Williams, president of the Wildlife Management Institute. "Meanwhile, the agency will continue to struggle in using an outdated, ineffective planning process to deal with modern-day challenges on public lands.".

The provision of information and the importance of keeping families informed is frequently viewed as a significant factor within both the concept of empowerment and the facilitation of enabling and participatory processes for service users and their families. This article looks at how parents would like to receive this information and also discusses the empowering potential of user-friendly information. The article draws on data collected from a focus group discussions with parents caring for children with a range of disabilities or chronic illness. In particular it examines the criteria by which parents judge the quality of information and their ideas as to what constitutes good practice, especially in terms of how information is presented, its content and the way it is delivered. Using these ideas and criteria, the paper begins to develop a model of good information practice that is both three-dimensional and personally interactive. ...
By Henry Sanoff. Community design stands for an alternative style of practice, based on the idea that professional technical knowledge is often inadequate in the resolution of social problems. It is an umbrella term covering community planning, community architecture, social architecture, community development and community participation, all of which emphasize the involvement of local people in the social and physical development of the environment in which they live. Community design represents the addition of moral and political content to professional practice, however, the representation of these ideas has changed over four decades of practice. Today, Community Design Centers (CDC) are too often left dealing with small-scale solutions to issues of poverty and disadvantage while affluent groups use citizen participation techniques, many developed in the community design movement, to secure their own advantaged positions. The community design movement now faces a new challenge: to create a ...
The acceptance of multiplicity as the precondition of political action is central to the new generation of theorists and activists that the author designates as critical pluralists. In political and social theory, a range of authors has finally begun to respond to a lament broached by Mary Parker Follett in 1918: pluralists early in the century had acknowledged difference, she noted, but they had not arrived at the heart of the question - what is to be done with this diversity? This chapter examines some of the contemporary responses to Folletts question and constructs a list of practices necessary to build political relations across difference. These get at issues of justice beyond the material, concerning both recognition and participatory process, and it is argued that agonistic respect (William Connolly 1991), attempts at intersubjective understanding (Seyla Benhabib 1992; Jurgen Habermas 1970; Axel Honneth 1992), inclusive, open discourse free from domination and the possibility of reprisals
IT is a question that occurs to almost everyone who becomes seriously ill: Should you go to your local hospital or would you do better if you went to a major medical center? It may mean a long trip when you are ill and it will almost certainly mean seeing doctors who are strangers to you. But what if going to a major medical center makes the difference between life and death? Patients reach different conclusions, based often on gut feelings about a doctor or a hospital. And medical researchers, looking for data, say they are not always certain themselves about how to decide. |p| There really is very, very little information, says Dr. Elliott S. Fisher, a professor at Dartmouth Medical School in Hanover, N.H., who studies medical outcomes.

They will draw on their substantial research record to impact policy, the work of practitioners and public debates.

The aim of this paper is to investigate the views about community on their participation during disaster recovery and how they can be empowered. The community participation from the beginning to end of the project, and future maintenance of the community is essential for a successful recovery in an efficient and effective manner. Little, or token, participation by the community has proved to be fatal through schedule delays in recovery or public uprising. This article will outline a global literature review of community participation complemented with some interview preliminary data from San Francisco and Christ Church, New Zealand. The outcome is a framework of community participation and empowerment. As "owners", the community will ensure a well- maintained community for many years ahead.. ...
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 ...

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

Strategies for tackling rare diseases are also a priority of both the Community Action Programmes for Public Health and the Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development. The three main objectives of the Second Community Action Programme for Public Health (2008-2013) are: (i) to improve citizens health security; (ii) to promote health, which involves reducing inequalities in this area; (iii) to generate and disseminate health information and knowledge. In particular, aim (ii) specifically mentions the promotion of action on rare diseases, where Community action by tackling their determinants can provide significant added value to national efforts. Within the first and second Community Action Programmes for public health, 32 projects on rare diseases have been funded to date, among which Orphanet is the best known European website dedicated to rare diseases and orphan drugs. Research on rare diseases is part of the objectives of the Framework Programmes for Research and ...
H&O What have studies shown about direct-to-consumer advertising of medical treatments?. LS A few studies have evaluated direct-to-consumer advertising of medical treatments, but they are not the most authoritative because they are not easy to conduct. Gregory A. Abel, MD, MPH, has published studies on patient awareness and prescribing habits.1,2 For the study on patient awareness, Dr Abel mailed questionnaires to patients who were receiving cancer treatments to assess their awareness of advertising. The study found that patients were highly aware of this type of advertising, and that it prompted a modest amount of discussion with their healthcare provider. Few patients, however, reported changes in therapy. The study on prescribing patterns found that for every million dollars spent on direct-to-consumer advertising for aromatase inhibitors, there was an associated increase 3 months later in appropriate prescriptions, but no significant change for inappropriate prescriptions.. In the oncology ...

Washington, D.C.-Enrollment in consumer-driven and high-deductible health plans increased in 2007, but still makes up a small segment of the overall insurance market, according to the third EBRI/Commonwealth Fund Consumerism in Health Care Survey released today. Enrollment in consumer-driven plans with a tax-advantaged account was 2 percent of the privately insured adults in 2007. One in 10 insured adults had high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) without accounts. The survey also found the percentage of consumer-driven plan enrollees with high incomes (above $100,000) swelled in 2007.. Consumer-driven plans were introduced in 2001 with the goal of decreasing the number of uninsured, encouraging cost-consciousness among consumers, and increasing the amount of information on the cost and quality of providers. The plans have been controversial because of criticism they favor wealthy and healthy participants at the expense of those with lower incomes and poorer health status.. Results of the survey ...

I am happy to report that the new Grassroots Pantry is just as good, if not better, than its former home. I love the whole feel of the restaurant, which is airy and light yet still retains that cosy vibe that was originally there. The staff are attentive and clearly care about what theyre doing - you really get the the sense that everyone working at Grassroots is passionate about spreading this healthy, nutritious concept around Hong Kong.. Apart from the dinner menu, breakfast and brunch are also highly recommend (yes - I went back to just to try them!), with fail-safe classics like Poached Eggs and Smashed Avocado as well as inventive dishes like Lemon Chia Seed Pancakes bringing in the crowds. If youre conscious about eating clean or if you have any special dietary requirements, or simply if you just want to try a different, healthy restaurant, Grassroots Pantry on Hollywood Road is a must try. Youll be fighting over the last kelp noodle…. Grassroots Pantry, 108 Hollywood Road, Sheung ...

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. After learning their self-assessment scores, the students were asked to estimate their ranks in the psychology class. 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 ...
