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 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 ...

People will choose anger-inducing stimuli when pursuing confrontation goals, which indicates an intention to up regulate anger. 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 ...
Last weeks post was directed at those who set business growth as a goal for New Year. While the 7 questions addressed in the post are critical, they are not all the pieces to the growth puzzle.. The 7 questions only address the business aspects of strategic planning and without a complete strategic plan business growth is a crapshoot! You strategic plan also has to address the personal goals and requirements of ownership and the market conditions.. Personal goals are completely controllable. But, the funny thing is they often dont get factored into the plan. This is why so many business owners find themselves a decade or more down the road and completely frustrated with their business and life in general! Read the previous post about why so many business owners are frustrated to get a better idea of why this happens and how to address it.. Market conditions are a whole other beast. These are external factors that impact your business, but are not controllable.. I frequently see business owners ...
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.

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 ...

Many studies have shown that people gaze at the goal area proactively for their hand in order to perform the goal-directed action effectively. This study investigated the gaze control and dexterous manipulation of the goal-directed action in infants comparing 11 month-olds, 15 ones and 18 ones. The results quantitatively demonstrated that the developmental changes of proactive eye movement and grasp-release motion, especially releasing occurred from 11~15 months old at birth with real objects. Only one findings that there was significant difference between 15 month-olds and 18 month-olds was the speed of hand movement. 18 month-olds move their hand slower than 15 ones. This suggested that 18 month-olds move their hand more smooth and dexterous than 15 ones. In addition, the study indicated the correlation between the development of gaze control and one of dexterous manipulation ...

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 culmination for the newly accredited Rock and Water teacher is the board break. It is a rite of passage, a challenge to do something that seems to be quite difficult at first thought. Freerk Ykema wrote, This board means that you can follow your path, supported by a positive conviction and self- image. A path that is sometimes difficult, because it will involve many difficult decisions that you will have to take yourself, on your own.. The participants write a personal goal on the board. Breaking the board symbolises the strength and perseverance needed to reach that goal. In this way, it forms a powerful mental anchor. Participants then work in pairs, with a partner to encourage, count together, shout together and also celebrate the achievement. To have a witness to ones effort can be a powerful affirmation and help promote a deep memory of this achievement, which anchors one in future moments of personal doubt.. Many teachers, inspired by the experience, include the board break in ...
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 ...

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 ...
