What is the future for equity within health policy? (1/1047)

In spite of differences in meaning, equity is generally accepted as an important social and economic policy goal. However, recent policy debates suggest that this consensus is under challenge. This paper explores the current debate between the 'New Right' and its opponents, and how different approaches affect health policy. It is strongly argued that if equity is not to remain a misunderstood concept, it is essential to clarify the arguments in its favour, as well as the steps required to protect its position within policy. The paper then goes on to justify the concern with equity, the broad goals equity seeks to achieve, and the practical translation of these goals into health policy. In the final section essentially practical issues are raised, by considering planning strategies and what research is necessary to support and develop pragmatic planning based on equity goals.  (+info)

Threats to global health and survival: the growing crises of tropical infectious diseases--our "unfinished agenda". (2/1047)

Health, one of our most unassailable human values, transcends all geographic, political, and cultural boundaries. The health problems of the rapidly growing 80% of the world's population that live in the tropical developing countries of Asia, Africa, and Latin America pose major threats to industrialized as well as developing regions. These threats can be divided into three areas, or three "E"s: (1) emerging, reemerging, and antimicrobial-resistant infections; (2) exploding populations without improved health; and (3) erosion of our humanity or leadership if we ignore the growing health problems of the poor. Our assessment of current trends in global population distribution and resource consumption; DALY calculations, causes, and distribution of global mortality and morbidity; and the misperceptions about and maldistribution of resources for health point to the critical importance of addressing tropical infectious diseases and global health for preservation of democracy and civilization as we know it.  (+info)

Goal attainment scaling as a measure of clinically important change in nursing-home patients. (3/1047)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the feasibility, validity and responsiveness of an individualized measure--goal attainment scaling-in long-term care. DESIGN: Prospective descriptive study. SETTING: One academic and three community-based long-term care facilities. SUBJECTS: 53 nursing-home patients seen in consultation between July 1996 and June 1997. INTERVENTION: Specialized geriatric medicine consultation. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Effect size and relative efficiency of the Barthel index, hierarchical assessment of balance and mobility, global deterioration scale, axis 8 (behaviour) of the brief cognitive rating scale, cumulative illness rating scale and the goal attainment scale. RESULTS: Mean goal attainment scale at follow-up was 46+/-7. The goal attainment scale was the most responsive measure, with an effect size of 1.29 and a relative efficiency of 53.7. The goal attainment scale did not correlate well with the other measures (-0.22 to 0.17). CONCLUSION: Goal attainment scaling is a feasible and responsive measure in long-term care. Although fewer problems in nursing-home patients than elderly inpatients are susceptible to intervention, clinically important goals can be achieved in this population.  (+info)

Delay activity of orbital and lateral prefrontal neurons of the monkey varying with different rewards. (4/1047)

We examined neuronal activity in the orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) in relation to reward expectancy and compared findings with those of the lateral prefrontal cortex (LPFC) in the monkey. Activity of OFC neurons was examined in a delayed reaction time task where every four trials constituted one block within which three kinds of rewards and no reward were delivered in a fixed order. More than half of OFC delay neurons were related to the expectancy of delivery or nodelivery of a reward as the response outcome, while some neurons showed nature-of-reward-specific anticipatory activity changes. These delay-related activities reflected the preference of the animal for each kind of reward and were modulated by the motivational state of the animal. LPFC neurons are reported to show nature-ofreward-specific anticipatory activity changes in a delayed response task when several different kinds of rewards are used. Such rewarddependent activity is observed in LPFC delay neurons both with and without spatially differential delay (working memory-related) activity. Although reward expectancy-related activity is commonly observed in both OFC and LPFC, it is suggested that the OFC is more concerned with motivational aspects, while the LPFC is related to both the cognitive and motivational aspects of the expectancy of response outcome.  (+info)

Reward processing in primate orbitofrontal cortex and basal ganglia. (5/1047)

This article reviews and interprets neuronal activities related to the expectation and delivery of reward in the primate orbitofrontal cortex, in comparison with slowly discharging neurons in the striatum (caudate, putamen and ventral striatum, including nucleus accumbens) and midbrain dopamine neurons. Orbitofrontal neurons showed three principal forms of reward-related activity during the performance of delayed response tasks, namely responses to reward-predicting instructions, activations during the expectation period immediately preceding reward and responses following reward. These activations discriminated between different rewards, often on the basis of the animals' preferences. Neurons in the striatum were also activated in relation to the expectation and detection of reward but in addition showed activities related to the preparation, initiation and execution of movements which reflected the expected reward. Dopamine neurons responded to rewards and reward-predicting stimuli, and coded an error in the prediction of reward. Thus, the investigated cortical and basal ganglia structures showed multiple, heterogeneous, partly simultaneous activations which were related to specific aspects of rewards. These activations may represent the neuronal substrates of rewards during learning and established behavioral performance. The processing of reward expectations suggests an access to central representations of rewards which may be used for the neuronal control of goaldirected behavior.  (+info)

Reward-related neuronal activity during go-nogo task performance in primate orbitofrontal cortex. (6/1047)

The orbitofrontal cortex appears to be involved in the control of voluntary, goal-directed behavior by motivational outcomes. This study investigated how orbitofrontal neurons process information about rewards in a task that depends on intact orbitofrontal functions. In a delayed go-nogo task, animals executed or withheld a reaching movement and obtained liquid or a conditioned sound as reinforcement. An initial instruction picture indicated the behavioral reaction to be performed (movement vs. nonmovement) and the reinforcer to be obtained (liquid vs. sound) after a subsequent trigger stimulus. We found task-related activations in 188 of 505 neurons in rostral orbitofrontal area 13, entire area 11, and lateral area 14. The principal task-related activations consisted of responses to instructions, activations preceding reinforcers, or responses to reinforcers. Most activations reflected the reinforcing event rather than other task components. Instruction responses occurred either in liquid- or sound-reinforced trials but rarely distinguished between movement and nonmovement reactions. These instruction responses reflected the predicted motivational outcome rather than the behavioral reaction necessary for obtaining that outcome. Activations preceding the reinforcer began slowly and terminated immediately after the reinforcer, even when the reinforcer occurred earlier or later than usually. These activations preceded usually the liquid reward but rarely the conditioned auditory reinforcer. The activations also preceded expected drops of liquid delivered outside the task, suggesting a primary appetitive rather than a task-reinforcing relationship that apparently was related to the expectation of reward. Responses after the reinforcer occurred in liquid- but rarely in sound-reinforced trials. Reward-preceding activations and reward responses were unrelated temporally to licking movements. Several neurons showed reward responses outside the task but instruction responses during the task, indicating a response transfer from primary reward to the reward-predicting instruction, possibly reflecting the temporal unpredictability of reward. In conclusion, orbitofrontal neurons report stimuli associated with reinforcers are concerned with the expectation of reward and detect reward delivery at trial end. These activities may contribute to the processing of reward information for the motivational control of goal-directed behavior.  (+info)

Effects of reversible inactivation of the primate mesencephalic reticular formation. I. Hypermetric goal-directed saccades. (7/1047)

Single-neuron recording and electrical microstimulation suggest three roles for the mesencephalic reticular formation (MRF) in oculomotor control: 1) saccade triggering, 2) computation of the horizontal component of saccade amplitude (a feed-forward function), and 3) feedback of an eye velocity signal from the paramedian zone of the pontine reticular formation (PPRF) to higher structures. These ideas were tested using reversible inactivation of the MRF with pressure microinjection of muscimol, a GABA(A) agonist, in four rhesus monkeys prepared for chronic single-neuron and eye movement recording. Reversible inactivation revealed two subregions of the MRF: ventral-caudal and rostral. The ventral-caudal region, which corresponds to the central MRF, the cMRF, or nucleus subcuneiformis, is the focus of this paper and is located lateral to the oculomotor nucleus and caudal to the posterior commissure (PC). Inactivation of the cMRF produced contraversive, upward saccade hypermetria. In three of eight injections, the velocity of hypermetric saccades was too fast for a given saccade amplitude, and saccade duration was shorter. The latency for initiation of most contraversive saccades was markedly reduced. Fixation was also destabilized with the development of macrosaccadic square-wave jerks that were directed toward a contraversive goal in the hypermetric direction. Spontaneous saccades collected in total darkness were also directed toward the same orbital goal, up and to the contraversive side. Three of eight muscimol injections were associated with a shift in the initial position of the eyes. A contralateral head tilt was also observed in 5 out of 8 caudal injections. All ventral-caudal injections with head tilt showed no evidence of vertical postsaccadic drift. This suggested that the observed changes in head movement and posture resulted from inactivation of the caudal MRF and not spread of the muscimol to the interstitial nucleus of Cajal (INC). Evidence of hypermetria strongly supports the idea that the ventral-caudal MRF participates in the feedback control of saccade accuracy. However, development of goal-directed eye movements, as well as a shift in the initial position following some of the cMRF injections, suggest that this region also contributes to the generation of an estimate of target or eye position coded in craniotopic coordinates. Last, the observed reduction in contraversive saccade latency and development of macrosaccadic square-wave jerks supports a role of the MRF in saccade triggering.  (+info)

Evidence for the transient nature of a neural system supporting goal-directed action. (8/1047)

Disruption of a neural system supporting goal-directed action gives rise to lapses of intention in healthy individuals and disorganized behavior in patients with prefrontal lesions. Evidence from behavioral studies indicates that the occurrence of lapses in selective attention, working memory and prospective memory tasks is transient in nature. In the current study, we used event-related brain potentials to demonstrate that lapses are associated with a slow wave over the frontal region that begins well before stimulus onset and lasts for several hundred milliseconds. The magnitude of this slow wave was modulated by task demands, indicating that attentional processes can be flexibly allocated in the service of goal-directed action. Together the findings of these experiments indicate that lapses result from a transient inability to bring to bear the goals of the individual upon the action selection system.  (+info)

Supporting self-management behaviours is recommended guidance for people with asthma. Preliminary work suggests that a brief, intensive, patient-centred intervention may be successful in supporting people with asthma to participate in life roles and activities they value. We seek to assess the feasibility of undertaking a cluster-randomised controlled trial (cRCT) of a brief, goal-setting intervention delivered in the context of an asthma review consultation. A two armed, single-blinded, multi-centre, cluster-randomised controlled feasibility trial will be conducted in UK primary care. Randomisation will take place at the practice level. We aim to recruit a total of 80 primary care patients with active asthma from at least eight practices across two health boards in Scotland (10 patients per practice resulting in ~40 in each arm). Patients in the intervention arm will be asked to complete a novel goal-setting tool immediately prior to an asthma review consultation. This will be used to underpin a

Goal-setting is a core component of the blended and personalized approach. It provides students with more transparency and ownership of their learning. Goal-setting creates intentional opportunities for students to reflect on their learning data, although the frequency may vary by classroom (e.g. weekly goals, unit goals, etc.). Goal-setting also has a metacognitive component, helping students understand what they know and dont know.. Students will often leverage data to set goals. They may reference progress from their playlists, or results from a pretest or posttest to determine an upcoming goal. For example, a student might review their posttest, determine they dont feel comfortable with a skill that they got right, and create a goal centered on improving their understanding of that skill. SMART goals are frequently used as a goal-setting tool for students goals, although they are not the only type of goal used within the school.. Teachers support students in their goal-setting as well. ...
The purpose of this study was to examine the multiple mediational roles of academic social comparison directions (upward academic social comparison and downward academic social comparison) on the relationships between achievement goal orientations (i.e., mastery goals, performance-approach goals and performance-avoidance goals) and subjective well-being (SWB) in school (school satisfaction, school affect) in adolescent students in China. A total of 883 Chinese adolescent students (430 males; Mean age = 12.99) completed a multi-measure questionnaire. Structural equation modeling was used to examine the hypotheses. Results indicated that (1) mastery goal orientations and performance-approach goal orientations both showed a statistically significant, positive correlation with SWB in school whereas performance-avoidance goal orientations showed a statistically significant, negative correlation with SWB in school among adolescents; (2) upward academic social comparisons mediated the relation between the

Purpose The psychosocial impact of breast cancer varies widely across patients and over time. Greater insight into goal-based coping processes theorised to underpin psychological resilience may inform efforts to support the maintenance and recovery of psychological wellbeing in the context of breast cancer treatment and recovery. This prospective study adopted a qualitative descriptive design to better understand the nature of situational goal-based coping in response to personal goal interference encountered across the six months following surgery for early-stage breast cancer. Method Responses to specific instances of goal interference were derived from semi-structured interviews conducted at three time-points following surgery (i.e., approximately two, four, and six months post-surgery). Thematic and cross-case analytic techniques were utilised to identify broad patterns across the goal-specific response trajectories. Results Three broad response patterns were identified - goal-based coping only,

The purpose of this study was to test a model of relations among goal orientation, study strategies and achievement. The model postulated that academic achievement and goal orientations are related where achievement is related positively to mastery and performance goals but related negatively to avoidance. The mastery goal was postulated as a positive predictor of deep processing but a negative predictor of disorganization; the performance goal was posited as a positive predictor of surface processing and deep processing and a negative predictor of disorganization. The performance avoidance goal was posited as a positive predictor of disorganization, but a negative predictor of deep processing and surface processing. As predicted, the mastery goal was a positive predictor of deep processing, the performance goal was a positive predictor of surface processing and avoidance was a positive predictor of disorganization. Achievement was a positive predictor of both surface processing and ...

The physiological concomitants of these actions, however, are not clearly understood. The current study was aimed to gain insight into this phenomenon by assessing changes in heart rate variability (HRV) when listening to music selected to facilitate goal pursuit. Sixty-seven students prepared to negotiate solutions to current student-parking issues. Participants were given a negotiation goal (confrontation, collaboration, or control) and then chose an emotion-inducing song (angry, happy, or neutral) to listen to in preparation for negotiation. After listening to the song, participants wrote a goal-driven message to the Director of Parking. Primary analyses revealed no significant differences between goal groups. However, group differences revealed through exploratory analyses suggest that music with a more polarized valence (i.e., angry and happy music) may demand more ...

The purpose of this study was to investigate relationships between motivation, goal-setting and self-regulated learning (SRL), and how these variables interact with sports-related performance and development. The study included 43 snowboarders and freeskiers aged 15-23 years (M = 17.5), which answered 3 self-assessment question-naires regarding motivation, goal-setting and SRL on three occasions. Coaches estimated riders performance based on riding skills and development during the season in terms of technical-, strategic/tactical-, mental- and physical ability in the specific sport. Results of regression analyzes showed a statistical relationship between autonomous motivation and SRL and development. Further there was a tendency that SRL had a positive impact on performance. Goal-setting was not related to any other variable. A simple mediation analysis showed no indirect effects of autonomous motivation on achieve-ment or development through SRL as s mediating variable. Conclusions are that ...
Change in goal attainment T-scores from respective injection cycle baseline visit. GAS measures the extent to which subjects individual goals are achieved in course of intervention. Subject and treating team have to identify 2 personal goals for each treated limb at each injection cycle. Investigator rates the GAS score for each injection cycle. Degree of goal attainment is rated on 5-point scale (-2, -1, 0, +1, +2; study baseline set to -1) and in order to account for interindividual differences in the number of goals, ratings are computed with the Kiresuk formula (Kiresuk & Sherman, Community Mental Health Journal. 1968;4(6):443-53) resulting in T-scores measuring the degree of goal attainment at each visit. A score of 50 indicates that the individual has reached the expected level of achievement for all goals. The size of change from measurement to measurement indicates incremental change towards or away from goal attainment. Positive values indicate a higher goal attainment ...
Of the 60 to 80 million Americans who live with one or more pain conditions, a sizeable number appear to be restricted in their ability or willingness to pursue daily goals. The proposed research seeks to investigate in a sample of adults with chronic pain the impact of changes in pain intensity on the daily pursuit of valued life goals pertaining to task achievement and lifestyle change. We contend that a comprehensive, context-sensitive analysis of the daily pain-adjustment relationship requires a careful accounting of pains capacity to derail affect, varied goal pursuit processes (such as planning and self-monitoring), and goal progress. In addition, our research highlights a set of risk and resilience factors that may moderate the relations among pain, affect, goal pursuit processes, and goal progress. Using Random Digit Dialing procedures, we will recruit 150 community-dwelling adults (75 men and 75 women) between the ages of 25 and 65 who, based upon a screening instrument, are ...
Objective: Theory and research suggest that the pursuit of personal goals that do not fit a persons affect-based implicit motives results in impaired emotional well-being, including increased symptoms of depression. The aim of this study was to evaluate an intervention designed to enhance motive-goal congruence and study its impact on well-being.Method: Seventy-four German students (mean age = 22.91, SD = 3.68; 64.9% female) without current psychopathology, randomly allocated to three groups: motivational feedback (FB; n = 25; participants learned about the fit between their implicit motives and explicit goals), FB + congruence-enhancement training (CET; n = 22; participants also engaged in exercises to increase the fit between their implicit motives and goals), and a no-intervention control group (n = 27), were administered measures of implicit motives, personal goal commitments, happiness, depressive symptoms, and life satisfaction 3 weeks before (T1) and 6 weeks after (T2) treatment.Results: On two
A relatively new approach to wealth management that emphasizes investing with the objective of attaining specific life goals. Goal-based investing (GBI) involves a wealth manager or investment firms clients measuring their progress towards the attainment of specific life goals such as saving for childrens education or building a retirement nest-egg, rather than focusing on generating the highest possible portfolio return or beating the market.
Prevention of diabetes complications requires a multitude of self-management tasks which are time-consuming. For example, following the American Diabetes Association recommendations for self-management would take 143 minutes per day [1]. Patients spend a mean of 58 minutes per day on self-care, with the largest barrier to additional care being not enough time [1]. To compound this, the majority (56%) of people with diabetes have two or more additional chronic conditions [2]. Patient adherence to clinical practice guideline (CPG) recommendations is impacted by multi-morbidity, as it directly impacts self-management ability (e.g., depression) [3] and competes for time and attention [4] (Yu CH: Impact of a web-based self-management intervention for patients with type 2 diabetes on self-efficacy, self-care and diabetes distress, submitted). For example, patients with a greater overall number of comorbidities placed lower priority on diabetes, had worse diabetes self-management ability [5, 6] and ...
Other evidence suggests that the vMPFC is also involved in assigning personal significance to mental representations of events and facts from ones life. In one fMRI study, we asked participants to imagine future events that were related to their personal goals (e.g., getting married next summer) and future events that were plausible and could be vividly imagined but were unrelated to their personal goals (e.g., taking a pottery lesson next summer), as determined by individualized pre-scan interviews (DArgembeau et al., 2010a). We found that the vMPFC (as well as the PCC) showed greater activation when participants imaged future events that were related to their goals compared to future events that were unrelated to their goals. Importantly, these two types of future events were matched for vividness and temporal distance, suggesting that the observed differences in brain activation cannot be accounted by these factors. Instead, a plausible interpretation is that the increased activation of the ...

Goals can be divided into three broad categories based upon their desired timeframe: 1) short-term goals, 2) long-term goals, and 3) lifetime goals. Generally, short-term goals can be achieved in less than one year and are often the stepping stones toward achieving long-term goals. If you exercise three times per week, for example, it will lead to a healthier, more active lifestyle, and could support you on your path to the long-term goal of completing a triathlon.. Long-term goals are usually more complex and require a longer period of time to achieve, for example, enrolling in school again to obtain a graduate degree or starting your own business. Lifetime goals are the goals you wish to accomplish at some point during your lifetime. Retiring at age 60 and traveling the world is one example of a lifetime goal. When planning for lifetime goals, it is important to include capstone goals or checkpoints. Saving a specific amount of money by a specific date in preparation for early retirement is an ...
The results of our study are consistent with previously published reports, which found that more than 60% of very high-risk patients and over 45% of high-risk patients did not attain their LDL-C goals, according to the 2007 Chinese lipid management guidelines, after at least 3 months of lipid-lowering treatment [10]. We found that physicians knowledge of guideline-recommended LDL-C target goals significantly correlated with patients LDL-C target goal achievement in China. Physicians knowledge varied depending on the hospital level, medical specialty, professional status, and geographic region. Working in a tier 1 or tier 2 hospital, being a resident physician, and specializing in neurology, endocrinology, or internal medicine were independent risk factors for lower LDL-C target goal achievement. Our results indicate that physician knowledge and characteristics affect the quality of lipid management in China, and more attention should be paid to this fact. Previous studies have suggested that ...

We examined the effects of goal orientation, objective task complexity, ability, and task complexity cues on task perceptions, motivation, and performance for 291 undergraduates. Subjects performed a computerized simulation of a class scheduling task. Results indicated that subjective task complexity can be manipulated using task complexity cues. In addition, learning and performance goal orientation interacted with task complexity cues in their effects on task perceptions and motivation. Implications for theory and practice are discussed. ...
If youre like many people, you set business, health, financial or other personal goals in January. However, a few months into the year, it becomes more and more difficult to stay on track to reach those goals. Just take a look around your gym the next time youre there to workout-chances are, its less crowded now than it was in January. So how can you stay on track to reach your goals? Follow these three tips.. Visualize success. Visualizing is a powerful technique that can help you set goals and achieve them. Take a few minutes to visualize the moment that you reach your goals. Emotion force of motivation that can keep you focused on your goals. Take this process a step further and write down everything you see and feel during your visualization. That way you can refer to it, and add to it, when you need a quick boost of motivation.. Get inspired. Theres no better way to get inspired than by immersing yourself in the successes of others-read books or watch movies about people who have ...
This study provides a more detailed look at the goal-setting behaviors of a largely Hispanic, low-income population engaged in a diabetes self-management program. In a busy, real-world setting, these patients were able to participate meaningfully in diabetes self-management, set and attain goals, and improve their glycemic control.. In this program, in which patients were guided to choose their own goals, they chose diet/nutrition-related goals twice as often as other types of goals and were more successful at attaining these types of goals than those from other categories. Exercise-related goals were the second most commonly chosen goals but were less frequently successful. This may reflect the difficulty of promoting exercise, particularly in a population that is older, overweight, and living in an urban environment. Goals from the reducing risks category were much less commonly chosen and were much less successfully attained both at the first follow-up and at any subsequent follow-ups. Goals ...
Change is hard. But for many patients at Heartland Health Center-Albany Park, change is necessary because their health depends on it. Keeping this in mind as a Health Educator, I work step-by-step with patients to create healthier habits and improve their quality of life.. A key component of this effort is effective goal-setting. At every session, I encourage the patient to set a new self-management goal or modify a previous one, always ensuring the goal we set is realistic, yet challenging. To make the goal more concrete, we use an Action Plan worksheet. With this tool, patients not only write out their overarching goal, but also the steps they are going to take to achieve it. This includes specifics such as how, when, where, and how often they will take action to work towards their goal. We also discuss the barriers they may face and how they plan to overcome those barriers. At the end, we always rate their conviction to complete the goal, their confidence that they can do it, and set a date ...

Primary care clinicians and researchers are growing increasingly aware of the prevalence of multimorbidity among long-term conditions, and the impact on patient experience, health, and utilisation of care. The correspondence paper by Muth et al. entitled The Ariadne principles: how to handle multimorbidity in primary care consultations outlines new thinking on a better way to manage the challenges of decision-making in multimorbidity. The paper highlights the importance of shared treatment goals as a fundamental basis for more effective management. Although a welcome contribution to the literature, the principles raise a number of challenges: the complexities of achieving effective patient-centred assessment and goal-setting; how best to encourage implementation of new practices; and the current state of the evidence around multimorbidity and its management.

As I finish my internship, I believe I have largely met my defined academic, career and personal goals I established before beginning my internship. My academic goal was to build upon the knowledge from the biology classes I have taken, as well as to expand that knowledge to better assist me in future classes. These goals were met as all my research either built on my basic biology knowledge, such as understanding how cellular respiration works and how DNA is replicated, or new lab techniques and concepts. These new techniques include ELISA and cell culture preparation, which will be useful when I take biology lab in the fall. More so, I was introduced to many neuroscience concepts, such as the role of PPAR agonist receptors and the importance of insulin in the brain, which I will be able to apply to my neuroscience courses.. Here is a link to an interesting article about the correlation between insulin resistance and AD, concepts on which my project focused, written by my PI.. My career goal ...
Plenty of scholarly and popular writings have addressed the issue of goal-setting, though there is some debate about whether we should set dream-big goals or more attainable goals. My take: Every year, you should set at least one physical and mental challenge that scares you just enough to help you make good choices-because those choices are a means to reaching that goal. What is just enough? Its that spot right in between of course I can do this and no way in the world can I do this. For me, it was taking on the challenge of trying to complete an Ironman in 2013 (2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, 26.2-mile run in a 17-hour time limit). Ive found that the canyon in the middle of those two extremes is where the growth lies. Maybe its not fear in the traditional sense, but that bubbling angst of uncertainty feels different from and healthier than the kind of fear that dieters tend to have ...
The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) mission is to enhance and protect the health and well-being of all Americans. As Acting Assistant Secretary for Health at HHS, I have made it my personal goal to confront two of the largest, most intractable challenges to health and well-being in the United States: poor nutrition and physical inactivity.. Currently, about half of all Americans have one or more preventable chronic diseases, many of which are directly related to inadequate physical activity and unhealthy eating. These preventable diseases cause untold suffering for millions of people and impose a huge burden on our healthcare system and economy. But there are many ways in which the Federal government is actively working to address these behavioral health challenges. We are dedicated to implementing research, policies, and programs to improve dietary quality and physical activity in the United States. Initiatives such as the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the Physical ...
And based on magnitude of reduced fracture risk with pedometers, 28 people would need to track steps with a pedometer to prevent one fracture, the study team calculated.. Trial participants did have some help setting realistic walking goals, and also received coaching from nurses and were encouraged to keep step diaries.. This extra support may be a key ingredient for successful health outcomes from tracking steps, said Dr. Mitesh Patel, Director of the Penn Medicine Nudge Unit at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.. Tracking your daily activity with a pedometer, wearable, or smartphone is an important part of any physical activity program, Patel said by email. However, it should be combined with other behavior change strategies such as goal-setting, coaching, or social interventions to increase sustainability.. One limitation of the study is that researchers lacked four years of data for some participants, the study team notes in Plos Medicine. Most of the participants were also ...

Goal-setting can prove aspirational and motivational for students and avoids the stress that can come with the traditional target-setting approach. Matt Ward explains
These efforts are interesting, but I dont think that the level of hardcore data tracking these engineers or engineer-types are doing will result in lasting behavioral change. I have done these things myself (like the coffee example) and they are amazingly successful *in the short term*. Why? Because its a super interesting project to engage in. Its awesome! We love projects. You start with a goal, you architect your plan of attack, you figure out your data collection framework, and then you set out to prove that you were right and that you can achieve your goal. And guess what? You do!! Yay! Its a wonderful feeling just to know that you can change your environment and even your own behavior by dedicating your engineering talents to your own personal goals. But then, the project loses its excitement after that. Are you REALLY cured from your addiction/desire to drink coffee? Or eat sugary foods? Or waste time watching tv? (all things that people wish they could reduce and may even ...
A combination of aerobic activity, strength training, and flexibility exercises, plus increased general daily activity can reduce medication dependence and health care costs while maintaining functional independence and improving quality of life in older adults. However, patients often do not benefit fully from exercise prescriptions because they receive vague or inappropriate instructions. Effective exercise prescriptions include recommendations on frequency, intensity, type, time, and progression of exercise that follow disease-specific guidelines. Changes in physical activity require multiple motivational strategies including exercise instruction as well as goal-setting, self-monitoring, and problem-solving education. Helping patients identify emotionally rewarding and physically appropriate activities, contingencies, and social support will increase exercise continuation rates and facilitate desirable health outcomes. Through patient contact and community advocacy, physicians can promote lifestyle
The solution the author comes up with and implements in their work is the IGLAD idea generation model. IGLAD stands for Individual.Group.Leadership.Analysis.Decision; it is the authors proposed method for combining individual brainstorming with group brainstorming. The process begins with a group setting a goal, with the idea that goal-setting will help prevent fixation on one common method or idea. The next step is for members to individually generate ideas anonymously and then post them somewhere to undergo group review. Once the group vetting is complete, the process then goes to the leadership. The leaders take into account the groups preferences and decide which methods are the most suitable. The leaderships choice(s) are then sent to the group to undergo analysis and then a final decision(s) is finalized ...
Overall, financial education alone increased participants awareness of the details and benefits of financial products, but only influenced financial behaviors when paired with personalized supplements such as goal-setting or counseling. Results suggest that traditional financial education programs may not equip individuals with the tools they need to bridge the gap between financial knowledge and financial decision-making, but that personalized additions can allow these programs to meaningfully impact both financial literacy and financial behaviors.. Financial education alone: The financial education videos increased participants basic financial knowledge and attitudes but not abilities to carry out financial calculations. The training improved participants basic financial knowledge score by 6.9 percentage points, a 9.9 percent improvement over the comparison group. The financial knowledge score included fundamental financial planning concepts and details of financial products, such as the ...
BACKGROUND Enhancing physical activity in overweight and obese individuals is an important means to promote health in this target population. The Health Action Process Approach (HAPA), which was the theoretical framework of this study, focuses on individual self-regulation variables for successful health behavior change. One key self-regulation variable of this model is action control with its three subfacets awareness of intentions, self-monitoring and regulatory effort. The social context of individuals, however, is usually neglected in common health behavior change theories. In order to integrate social influences into the HAPA, this randomized controlled trial investigated the effectiveness of a dyadic conceptualization of action control for promoting physical activity. METHODS/DESIGN This protocol describes the design of a single-blind randomized controlled trial, which comprises four experimental groups: a dyadic action control group, an individual action control group and two control ...

The purpose of this thesis was to produce a self-care guide to heart failure patients. The need for the guide came from the Cardiac-team nurses of the Lapland Central Hospital Department 5B. The aim was to make a guide that supports both the nurses and patients and also standardizes the management of guidance and discharge situations. The goal was to make a clear, simple and motivating guide that helps the patient to believe in the success of self-care. The guide provides justification to why it is important to follow the care instructions. The aim was also to find out about the means to help the patient to commit to self-care. Our personal goal was to develop our own workmanship and to meet the needs of working life ...
