Asthma patient education opportunities in predominantly minority urban communities. (1/417)

Disenfranchised ethnic minority communities in the urban United States experience a high burden of asthma. Conventional office-based patient education often is insufficient to promote proper asthma management and coping practices responsive to minority patients' environments. This paper explores existing and alternative asthma information and education sources in three urban minority communities in western New York State to help design other practical educational interventions. Four focus groups (n = 59) and four town hall meetings (n = 109) were conducted in one Hispanic and two black communities. Focus groups included adult asthmatics or caretakers of asthmatics, and town meetings were open to all residents. A critical theory perspective informed the study. Asthma information and education sources, perceptions of asthma and ways of coping were elicited through semi-structured interviews. Data analysis followed a theory-driven immersion-crystallization approach. Several asthma education and information resources from the health care system, media, public institutions and communities were identified. Intervention recommendations highlighted asthma workshops that recognize participants as teachers and learners, offer social support, promote advocacy, are culturally appropriate and community-based and include health care professionals. Community-based, group health education couched on people's experiences and societal conditions offers unique opportunities for patient asthma care empowerment in minority urban communities.  (+info)

Social construction and cultural meanings of STI/HIV-related terminology among Nguni-speaking inmates and warders in four South African correctional facilities. (2/417)

Cultural sensitivity is increasingly recognized as a means to enhance the effectiveness of health promotion programmes all over the world. Sociocultural meanings and terminology of diseases are important in understanding how different groups perceive and interpret illness. This study was conducted as part of the process of developing and adapting a sexually transmitted infection (STI)/HIV peer led health education intervention for soon-to-be-released inmates who were predominantly Nguni speakers in South Africa. Two focus group discussions (FGDs) were conducted with prison inmates in each of four facilities. Additionally, one FGD was conducted in each prison with non-health trained (custodial) personnel who were Nguni speakers from the same community (n = 27). The data revealed unique terminology and meanings attached to several biomedically defined STIs. These sociocultural constructions were not limited to inmates as findings from warders' discussions showed a similar pattern. Moreover, we found the existence of a number of traditional 'folk' STIs and culture-specific prevention methods. These conceptualizations influence reported health-care-seeking behaviour, where dual consultation of traditional healers and biomedical remedies is widely practiced. The research has biopsychological as well as cultural implications for the development and adaptation of contextually relevant health promotion interventions.  (+info)

Understanding physical activity participation in members of an African American church: a qualitative study. (3/417)

Faith-based interventions hold promise for increasing physical activity (PA) and thereby reducing health disparities. This paper examines the perceived influences on PA participation, the link between spirituality and health behaviors and the role of the church in promoting PA in African Americans. Participants (n = 44) were adult members of African American churches in South Carolina. In preparation for a faith-based intervention, eight focus groups were conducted with sedentary or underactive participants. Groups were stratified by age (<55 years versus >or=55 years), geography and gender. Four general categories were determined from the focus groups: spirituality, barriers, enablers and desired PA programs. Personal, social, community and environmental barriers and enablers were described by both men and women, with no apparent differences by age. Additionally, both men and women mentioned aerobics, walking programs, sports and classes specifically for older adults as PA programs they would like available at church. This study provides useful information for understanding the attitudes and experiences with exercise among African Americans, and provides a foundation for promoting PA through interventions with this population by incorporating spirituality, culturally specific activities and social support within the church.  (+info)

Assessing oral literacy demand in genetic counseling dialogue: preliminary test of a conceptual framework. (4/417)

Health literacy deficits affect half the American patient population and are linked to poor health, ineffective disease management and high rates of hospitalization. Restricted literacy has also been linked with less satisfying medical visits and communication difficulties, particularly in terms of the interpersonal and informational aspects of care. Despite growing attention to these issues by researchers and policy makers, few studies have attempted to conceptualize and assess those aspects of dialogue that challenge persons with low literacy skills, i.e., the oral literacy demand within medical encounters. The current study uses videotapes and transcripts of 152 prenatal and cancer pretest genetic counseling sessions recorded with simulated clients to develop a conceptual framework to explore oral literacy demand and its consequences for medical interaction and related outcomes. Ninety-six prenatal and 81 cancer genetic counselors-broadly representative of the US National Society of Genetic Counselors-participated in the study. Key elements of the conceptual framework used to define oral literacy demand include: (1) use of unfamiliar technical terms; (2) general language complexity, reflected in the application of Microsoft Word grammar summary statistics to session transcripts; and, (3) structural characteristics of dialogue, including pacing, density, and interactivity. Genetic counselor outcomes include self-ratings of session satisfaction, informativeness, and development of rapport. The simulated clients rated their satisfaction with session communication, the counselor's effective use of nonverbal skills, and the counselor's affective demeanor during the session. Sessions with greater overall technical term use were longer and used more complex language reflected in readability indices and multi-syllabic vocabulary (measures averaging p<.05). Sessions with a high proportionate use of technical terms were characterized by shorter visits, high readability demand, slow speech speed, fewer and more dense counselor speaking turns and low interactivity (p<.05). The higher the use of technical terms, and the more dense and less interactive the dialogue, the less satisfied the simulated clients were and the lower their ratings were of counselors' nonverbal effectiveness and affective demeanor (all relationships p<.05). Counselors' self-ratings of informativeness were also inversely related to use of technical terms (p<.05). Just as print material can be made more reader-friendly and effective following established guidelines, the medical dialogue may also be made more patient-centered and meaningful by having providers monitor their vocabulary and language, as well as the structural characteristics of interaction, thereby lowering the literacy demand of routine medical dialogue. These consequences are important for all patients but may be even more so for patients with restricted literacy.  (+info)

Health education in rural settings in Ghana: a methodological approach. (5/417)

Although the search for appropriate methodology in educating and training rural community populations is on going, previous efforts have yielded few results, some of which have not been successful with consequences for scarce resources. This paper, based on field reports from the Population Communication Project in Ghana, demonstrates that community learning theory can offer understanding of appropriate methodology in rural learning, education and training. The report shows steps used in educating people in Wusuta (a rural community) on health and environmental issues in the community using a mix of traditional and modern approaches. The result shows that the community internalized learning activity and were able to relate their learning experiences to existing traditional values and the need for action. The paper thus offers the method as a solution to rural population training and learning methodology.  (+info)

Reminder cards and immunization rates among Latinos and the rural poor in Northeast Colorado. (6/417)

OBJECTIVE: Immunization rates are static in the United States. Risk factors for not being up to date (UTD) include ethnicity and lower socioeconomic status. Reminder cards increase immunization rates in urban settings. Their effect in poor, Latino, and rural children is unknown. BACKGROUND: Language-appropriate reminder cards were sent to active patients not UTD listing the vaccines missing; the card served as the physician order for the vaccine. Missed opportunities were addressed through discussion with staff and posters in patient care rooms. UTD rates before and after intervention were measured. RESULTS: Dual-purpose reminder/order cards increased the rate of UTD from 61.3% to 73.4%; children living near the clinic, patients who speak only Spanish, and Latinos overall showed preferential effectiveness. Children eligible to participate in the Vaccines for Children program had similar increases in UTD rates but had lower baseline and final UTD rates than did children not eligible for the Vaccines for Children program. The rate of missed opportunities did not change. The number of children to whom reminder cards needed to be sent for them to become fully immunized is 8 (number needed to treat). CONCLUSIONS: In poor, rural, and Latino populations, language-appropriate reminder/order cards increase immunization rates.  (+info)

Barriers beyond words: cancer, culture, and translation in a community of Russian speakers. (7/417)

BACKGROUND: Language and culture relate in complex ways. Addressing this complexity in the context of language translation is a challenge when caring for patients with limited English proficiency (LEP). OBJECTIVE: To examine processes of care related to language, culture and translation in an LEP population is the objective of this study. DESIGN: We used community based participatory research to examine the experiences of Russian-speaking cancer patients in San Francisco, California. A Russian Cancer Information Taskforce (RCIT), including community-based organizations, local government, and clinics, participated in all phases of the study. PARTICIPANTS: A purposeful sample of 74 individuals were the participants of the study. APPROACH: The RCIT shaped research themes and facilitated access to participants. Methods were focus groups, individual interviews, and participant observation. RCIT reviewed data and provided guidance in interpreting results. RESULTS: Four themes emerged. (1) Local Russian-language resources were seen as inadequate and relatively unavailable compared to other non-English languages; (2) a taboo about the word "cancer" led to language "games" surrounding disclosure; (3) this taboo, and other dynamics of care, reflected expectations that Russian speakers derived from experiences in their countries of origin; (4) using interpreters as cultural brokers or establishing support groups for Russian speakers could help address barriers. CONCLUSIONS: The language barriers experienced by this LEP population reflect cultural and linguistic issues. Providers should consider partnering with trained interpreters to address the intertwining of language and culture.  (+info)

The impact of an enhanced interpreter service intervention on hospital costs and patient satisfaction. (8/417)

BACKGROUND: Many health care providers do not provide adequate language access services for their patients who are limited English-speaking because they view the costs of these services as prohibitive. However, little is known about the costs they might bear because of unaddressed language barriers or the costs of providing language access services. OBJECTIVE: To investigate how language barriers and the provision of enhanced interpreter services impact the costs of a hospital stay. DESIGN: Prospective intervention study. SETTING: Public hospital inpatient medicine service. PARTICIPANTS: Three hundred twenty-three adult inpatients: 124 Spanish-speakers whose physicians had access to the enhanced interpreter intervention, 99 Spanish-speakers whose physicians only had access to usual interpreter services, and 100 English-speakers matched to Spanish-speaking participants on age, gender, and admission firm. MEASUREMENTS: Patient satisfaction, hospital length of stay, number of inpatient consultations and radiology tests conducted in the hospital, adherence with follow-up appointments, use of emergency department (ED) services and hospitalizations in the 3 months after discharge, and the costs associated with provision of the intervention and any resulting change in health care utilization. RESULTS: The enhanced interpreter service intervention did not significantly impact any of the measured outcomes or their associated costs. The cost of the enhanced interpreter service was $234 per Spanish-speaking intervention patient and represented 1.5% of the average hospital cost. Having a Spanish-speaking attending physician significantly increased Spanish-speaking patient satisfaction with physician, overall hospital experience, and reduced ED visits, thereby reducing costs by $92 per Spanish-speaking patient over the study period. CONCLUSION: The enhanced interpreter service intervention did not significantly increase or decrease hospital costs. Physician-patient language concordance reduced return ED visit and costs. Health care providers need to examine all the cost implications of different language access services before they deem them too costly.  (+info)

Cultural competence training attempts to provide health care professionals with the tools and skills to communicate effectively across cultures. Some hospitals currently incorporate aspects of cultural competence into other trainings for clinicians and other staff. However, rarely, if ever, do these trainings focus on how cross-cultural issues, misunderstandings, and lack of respect for cultural beliefs and traditions, may lead to patient safety events among diverse populations.. In the recommendations below, we link cultural competence with recommendations to improve team communication given its relevance to both patient-staff interactions and staff-to-staff interactions. It is critical that training in cultural competence incorporate information on how issues related to cultural diversity or LEP may contribute to medical errors.. ...
Intercultural competence (IC) as an essential part of conceptualization of the cultural dimension in FLT has been promoted by educationalists as the most preferred type of competence. One of the challenges of incorporating IC into FLT is to move from the recognition of IC as a model of teaching (Byram, Nichols and Stevens, 2001) to the development of practical applications. This can be due to the fact that teachers do not have sufficient knowledge of the theory behind the concept and consequently, have difficulties to implement the curriculum requirements with regards to IC into their teaching. The purpose of this study was to investigate how teachers of English in upper secondary schools in Sweden interpret the concept of IC and, accordingly, what is their view of culture in English language teaching. In order to answer the research question, I used an exploratory investigation by adopting a qualitative research method in form of semi-structured interviews. The results are similar to the ...
Aims: Intercultural competence has become a key-competence, since the world has become more and more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.

Due to this involvement, the quadrems members managed not to avoid this discussion topic, and so to express intercultural competences ...
The intervention: Often, misunderstandings and conflicts arise when patients and health care professionals come together to choose an appropriate treatment plan. Such problems are intensified when patients and their family members struggle to communicate in English or have cultural beliefs that clash with modern medicine. Filmmakers Maren Grainger-Monsen, M.D., and Julia Haslett of the Stanford University Biomedical Center document the experiences of four patients as they negotiate the U.S. health care system. In a series of four films, called Worlds Aparts, they dramatize communication between patients and their doctors, tensions between modern medicine and cultural beliefs, and the ongoing problems of racial and ethnic discrimination. To do so, the filmmakers followed four individuals from their homes, neighborhoods, and places of worship to community clinics and hospitals. The films and an accompanying facilitators guide, written by Alexander Green, M.D., Joseph Betancourt, M.D., M.P.H., and ...

A key component of the ISHLTs educational curriculum is the development of documents that serve to provide a foundation for the later development of educational courses. The Core Competency Curriculum Document (CCCD) is one of these. The CCCD is a foundational document that defines a priori the learning objectives and established contents in the field. This key document outlines the fundamental principles that the specific specialist should know, though not necessarily everything they should know. It also serves as the documentation for the written practice gap that must be the starting point for the development of all ISHLT Academy Core Competency Courses. These CCCD are also excellent resources for self-directed learning ...

This particular objective has been in place for more than a decade, although it has mutated along the way. At one point the interdisciplinary and intercultural aims were combined with social responsibility. At another point it became Interdisciplinary Explorations of Social Issues and Cultures. Its current language suggests the national leadership Pitzer has assumed through its courses and programs in deepening intercultural understanding. Some of that is a result of their consistent investment in faculty development through externally and internally funded initiatives over the years and in ones that examined traditional disciplines in conjunction with a focus on particular cultures. In one Ford Foundation diversity grant, to choose only one example, over two-thirds of Pitzers faculty members were involved in clusters of small thematically focused seminars on diversity scholarship within different disciplines. The institution has also clearly made diversity a priority in their external ...
Hi, Im Dominica McBride, CEO of Become, Inc. and a member of the AEA Public Statement on Cultural Competence in Evaluation Dissemination Working Group. The working group is charged with spreading the word about the statement and helping evaluators integrate the information from the statement into practice, teaching, policy, etc. At this years conference, we facilitated and attended several sessions on cultural competence. This week, a few of us are sharing our lessons learned from these sessions.. Id like to provide an overarching perspective on the sessions and share some cross-cutting lessons from them. In attending these and other sessions this year, I noticed a couple exciting trends around evaluation and cultural competence:. It seems the importance of cultural competence is "catching fire" (just thought Id throw that in for the Hunger Games fans). More people are recognizing the significance of this way of thinking and set of skills in evaluation, as I hear it come up more in discourse ...

Before athletic trainers can effectively work with diverse populations of athletes, they must identify and examine their own attitudes about people. One way to foster this self examination is by hosting a diversity education course as part of your program. The importance of the diversity issue, coupled with the relative lack of knowledge about the topic, may tempt you to bring in outside experts to give lectures and run workshops on the topic. Outside experts certainly are a viable option. But if your institution does not have the funds to hire outside speakers, or if you would like to approach diversity training on an internal level, you can fashion your own course by incorporating the following concepts into exercises that are specifically designed to help you and your staff examine, understand, and overcome any preconceived attitudes you may have about different races and ethnicities ...

Two quick examples of where extreme empathy is clearly bad, and that are NOT me. When my dad passed away, one of my cousins cried and wailed so badly everyone was patting her and taking care of her. Shes more than 10 years my senior. I was pregnant when my dad passed and I was completely calm and did not cry until 2 days later alone with my husband in our bedroom. The problem with my cousins empathy (she wasnt even close to my dad, shes my cousin from my moms side who grew up in another place and lives far away) is that her empathy was harmful for the people closer to the situation. When people should have been focused on ME, she took all the attention. And while I seem to just naturally be calm and dry-eyed during extreme situations, I cry easily at movies and such. A similar (kinda funny story) happened at home yesterday. My husband turned off the lights by mistake while I was handling a sharp object and I hurt myself. When I yelled for him to turn the lights on and showed a drop of ...

In the age of globalization English as a lingua franca is crucial to many areas of professional and private life, including teaching and learning in higher education, science and research, language pedagogy, business, and tourism. ELF research over the last 15 years or so has studied communication via ELF in all these domains, and has shown that countless ELF speakers across the world not only use this means of communication for a vast number of different purposes, but also shape it in the process. This research has also brought about new theoretical developments as it has necessitated a quite radical rethinking of deeply entrenched ideas and attitudes concerning the notions of community, competence, effective communication and language use and language learning.. What has, however, only been given fairly scarce attention so far are the kinds of translingual, intercultural interaction where the power differential between the communicating parties is very great, and where the outcomes of ...

If you have read Strategizing Communication, you will know that we do not make much of national culture. Skirting traditional takes on intercultural communication in which ones cultural identity is assumed to be defined by the imprint on ones passport, we prefer an approach in which nationality is never the only and rarely the most important determinant of the collective identity of a target group. Now, you may agree with this approach. After all, your everyday routines are likely to constantly transcend national boundaries (your toothpaste and your shampoo are probably manufactured by some multinational corporation; your milk may be locally produced, but your coffee is most likely not; your phone is perhaps designed in the US or maybe in South Korea, but it is almost certainly assembled in China). Further, the choices you face during the course of a day do not seem to have much to do with a single nationality either (should it be pizza or perhaps sushi tonight? Was the combination of Nike ...

Evaluation of Electronic Discussion Forums in Social Work Diversity Education: A Comparison of Anonymous and Identified Participation by Elizabeth M. Bertera, Ph.D. and Melissa B. Littlefield, Ph.D. KEYWORDS: Web based education, online dialogue, cultural competency, anonymity, diversity.. ABSTRACT Two Web-based forums for discussing diversity issues were evaluated as part of graduate social work education. Data included surveys from 91 students as well as aggregate Web use information. Outcomes included perceived learning benefits related to cultural competency, improved relationships and benefits of anonymous vs. identified participation in the forums. We found that 1) 75% of the students reported benefits related to learning cultural competency; 2) Just over 60% experienced positive impacts on relationships with classmates; 3) 54% believed anonymity improved honesty during forum dialogues; however, students who participated in the author-identified forums perceived significantly more ...

Nowadays in teaching practice the correctness of the language form is the most important thing to students and teachers. Although some course-books are compiled with an introduction to cultural knowledge, some teachers may focus more on the explanation of language points, and seldom integrate cultural knowledge and pragmatic rules with the teaching of linguistic forms. As a result, there may be occurrences of pragmatic failure and a lack of cultural and pragmatic knowledge among the students. The results from this exploratory study indicate that Chinese students seem to lack competence in using English appropriately in a certain social context. Language learners must not only acquire the correct forms and sounds of the target language, but also the knowledge of how language is pragmatically used in the target culture. (...) We have to understand our own and others cultural values, norms, customs and social systems. English teachers should integrate the target culture into English learning, not ...

The post intensive care syndrome (PICS) gathers various disabilities, associated with a substantial healthcare use. However, patients comorbidities and active medical conditions prior to intensive care unit (ICU) admission may partly drive healthcare use after ICU discharge. To better understand retative contribution of critical illness and PICS-compared to pre-existing comorbidities-as potential determinant of post-critical illness healthcare use, we conducted a population-based evaluation of patients healthcare use trajectories. Using discharge databases in a 2.5-million-people region in France, we retrieved, over 3 years, all adult patients admitted in ICU for septic shock or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), intubated at least 5 days and discharged alive from hospital: 882 patients were included. Median duration of mechanical ventilation was 11 days (interquartile ranges [IQR] 8;20), mean SAPS2 was 49, and median hospital length of stay was 42 days (IQR 29;64). Healthcare use (days spent

Aboriginal mappers constitute the fastest growing group of GIS users in BC (Johnson, 1995), yet their specific education needs have never been addressed by education institutions.

The age of digital media has given rise to a new social world. It is a world in which the transmission of information from the few to the many is steadily being supplanted by the multi-directional flow of facts, lies, and ideas. It is a world in which hundreds of millions of people are voluntarily depositing large amounts of personal details in publicly accessible databases. It is a world in which interpersonal relationships are increasingly being conducted in the virtual sphere. Above all, this is a world that seems to be veering off in unpredictable ways from the trends of the immediate past. This book is a probing examination of that world, and of the changes that it has ushered into our lives. In more than thirty essays by a wide range of scholars, this must-have second edition examines the impact of digital media in six areas - information, persuasion, community, gender and sexuality, surveillance and privacy, and cross-cultural communication - and offers an invaluable guide for students ...
His sense of relief goes away, though, when the chief asks him and his team to stack their weapons off to the side, where they would be out of quick reach if needed. Just as the commander is trying to figure out a polite way to decline, he hears a groan from somewhere in the back of the building. Is a prisoner being tortured?. The marching, the sleeplessness and the fatigue are all real, but the "village" is located in North Carolina, and all the "villagers" are soldiers in the U.S. Army, dressed up to play their roles. Its all part of an elaborate 12-day "culmination exercise"-or CULEX, in Army terminology. The exercise is designed to test the skills of adaptive thinking and leadership of Special Operations Forces civil affairs and psychological operations personnel in the Armys Reserve Command.. "Adaptive thinking is about cross-cultural communications," says Maj. Eric Le Gloahec, a special projects officer at the Armys John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg, North ...
Catalonia (Spain), this paper intends to analyse the impact of the family language and the generational cohort on the language attitudes towards Catalan and Spanish that is built by immigrant children (aged 14-16). The nature of the analysis carried out as a result of an attitude questionnaire answered by 527 young people allows differentiation of the effect of both variables individually when included in the same explanatory model. Results indicate that being Spanish-speaking or non-Spanish-speaking is influential in the construction of attitudes towards Spanish and towards Catalan. Moreover, the generational cohort is only influential for attitudes towards Catalan and when a migratory transit has been experienced or not. Since both variables are included in the same model, it is suggested that the effect of the generational cohort is moderated by being Spanish-speaking or not. The new perspectives opened up by these results are discussed as regards the promotion of intercultural communication ...

misrepresentation (deliberate, unconscious or accidental), e.g. to make their diets appear more healthy or be quicker to report.

Even so, an evaluation of the performance of this instrument against an independent measure of intake (i.e. energy expenditure measured by doubly-labelled water) in 524 volunteers from the Washington DC area showed that although the AMPM accurately reported energy intakes for normal weight subjects, under-reporting remained an issue for overweight and obese subjects2.

Suicide is a multidimensional issue, which has a devastating impact on individuals and families and ongoing implications for the communities in which they live. High rates of suicide among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are commonly attributed to a complex set of factors which not only includes disadvantage and risk factors shared by the non-Indigenous population, but also a broader set of social, economic and historic determinations that impact on Aboriginal social and emotional wellbeing and mental health. The Social Health Reference Group for the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Council and National Mental Health Working Group (2004) responsible for developing the National Strategic Framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Mental Health and Social and Emotional Wellbeing 2004-2009 draws an important distinction between the concepts of social and emotional wellbeing used in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander settings and the term ...
