Risky single-occasion drinking amongst young people--definition, correlates, policy, and intervention: a broad overview of research findings. (1/4315)

Risky single-occasion drinking (RSOD) has dire consequences upon health and well-being including unplanned pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV/AIDS, crime, and car accidents. The prevalence of RSOD among young people is alarming. Despite this, as yet, a review of existing literature on RSOD amongst young people is lacking. This article will provide an overview of this area of research focusing on the definition of RSOD, its prevalence among young people, health and behavioural effects of RSOD, the perceived risk of RSOD among young people, and interventions to reduce RSOD in young people. In addition, recommendations are made for health educators interested in reducing the incidence of RSOD in young people.  (+info)

The reach and effectiveness of a national mass media-led smoking cessation campaign in The Netherlands. (2/4315)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the reach, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness of a mass media-led smoking cessation campaign including television shows, a television clinic, a quit line, local group programs, and a comprehensive publicity campaign. METHODS: A random sample of baseline smokers (n = 1338) was interviewed before and after the campaign and at a 10-month follow-up. A nonpretested control group (n = 508) of baseline smokers was incorporated to control for test effects. RESULTS: Most smokers were aware of the campaign, although active participation rates were low. Dose-response relations between exposure and quitting were found. The follow-up point prevalence abstinence rate attributable to the campaign was estimated to be 4.5% after control for test effects and secular trends. The cost per long-term quitter was about $12. CONCLUSIONS: In spite of a massive rise in tobacco promotion expenditures prior to the campaign and the absence of governmental control over the media, the campaign under study may have increased normal cessation rates substantially.  (+info)

Skirting the issue: women and international health in historical perspective. (3/4315)

Over the last decades women have become central to international health efforts, but most international health agencies continue to focus narrowly on the maternal and reproductive aspects of women's health. This article explores the origins of this paradigm as demonstrated in the emergence of women's health in the Rockefeller Foundation's public health programs in Mexico in the 1920s and 1930s. These efforts bore a significant reproductive imprint; women dispensed and received services oriented to maternal and childbearing roles. Women's health and social advocacy movements in Mexico and the United States partially shaped this interest. Even more important, the emphasis on women in the Rockefeller programs proved an expedient approach to the Foundation's underlying goals: promoting bacteriologically based public health to the government, medical personnel, business interests, and peasants; helping legitimize the Mexican state; and transforming Mexico into a good political and commercial neighbor. The article concludes by showing the limits to the maternal and reproductive health model currently advocated by most donor agencies, which continue to skirt--or sidestep--major concerns that are integral to the health of women.  (+info)

Decline in cigarette consumption following implementation of a comprehensive tobacco prevention and education program--Oregon, 1996-1998. (4/4315)

In November 1996, residents of Oregon approved a ballot measure increasing the cigarette tax by 30 cents (to 68 cents per pack). The measure stipulated that 10% of the additional tax revenue be allocated to the Oregon Health Division (OHD) to develop and implement a tobacco-use prevention program. In 1997, OHD created Oregon's Tobacco Prevention and Education Program (TPEP), a comprehensive, community-based program modeled on the successful tobacco-use prevention programs in California and Massachusetts. To assess the effects of the tax increase and TPEP in Oregon, OHD evaluated data on the number of packs of cigarettes taxed before (1993-1996) and after (1997-1998) the ballot initiative and implementation of the program. Oregon's results also were compared with national data. This report summarizes the results of the analysis, which indicate that consumption of cigarettes in Oregon declined substantially after implementation of the excise tax and TPEP and exceeded the national rate of decline.  (+info)

Tay-Sachs screening: motives for participating and knowledge of genetics and probability. (5/4315)

A highly-educated, socially aware group of persons presented themselves for Tay-Sachs screening having learned about it mainly from friends, newspapers, radio, and television but not from physicians or rabbis. After learning that screening was possible and deciding that it is in principle a good idea, and after discussing it with relatives and friends but not with physicians and rabbis, they presented themselves for the test. Although the participants knew that Tay-Sachs is a serious disease and that Jews are vulnerable, few of them knew much about the genetics of the disease, its frequency, or the incidence of the carrier state. This experience of screening for Tay-Sachs carriers suggests the need for physicians to learn the relation of genetics to preventive medicine, and for the public to learn more about the biology of man.  (+info)

Marijuana use among minority youths living in public housing developments. (6/4315)

Youths residing in public housing developments appear to be at markedly heightened risk for drug use because of their constant exposure to violence, poverty, and drug-related activity. The purpose of this study was to develop and test a model of marijuana etiology with adolescents (N = 624) residing in public housing. African-American and Hispanic seventh graders completed questionnaires about their marijuana use, social influences to smoke marijuana, and sociodemographic and psychosocial characteristics. Results indicated that social influences, such as friends' marijuana use and perceived ease of availability of marijuana, significantly predicted both occasional and future use of marijuana. Individual characteristics such as antimarijuana attitudes and drug refusal skills also predicted marijuana use. The findings imply that effective prevention approaches that target urban youths residing in public housing developments should provide them with an awareness of social influences to use marijuana, correct misperceptions about the prevalence of marijuana smoking, and train adolescents in relevant psychosocial skills.  (+info)

Diarrhoea prevention in Bolivia through point-of-use water treatment and safe storage: a promising new strategy. (7/4315)

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

Whose policy is it anyway? International and national influences on health policy development in Uganda. (8/4315)

As national resources for health decline, so dependence on international resources to finance the capital and recurrent costs is increasing. This dependence, combined with an increasing emphasis on policy-based, as opposed to project-based, lending and grant-making has been accompanied by greater involvement of international actors in the formation of national health policy. This paper explores the process of health policy development in Uganda and examines how major donors are influencing and conflicting with national policy-making bodies. Focusing on two examples of user fees and drugs policies, it argues that while the content of international prescriptions to strengthen the health system may not be bad in itself, the process by which they are applied potentially threatens national sovereignty and weakens mechanisms for ensuring accountability. It concludes by proposing that in order to increase the sustainability of policy reforms, much greater emphasis should be placed on strengthening national capacity for policy analysis and research, building up policy networks and enhancing the quality of information available to the public concerning key policy changes.  (+info)

State regulations on health education have evolved over a period of time. The first portion of the regulation that was developed involved the teaching of family life education. This became effective on July 1, 1970. Next came the regulation regarding HIV/AIDS prevention education. This began as an emergency regulation on October 6, 1987 and was adopted as a final regulation on May 2, 1988. Finally, when the regulation was put forward on comprehensive health education instruction, all three sections were compiled under the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR), Title 13A.

Working with hundreds of security awareness programs has taught me one thing, people are key. One of the quickest ways I can determine if an awareness program is going to be successful is by asking how many people are dedicated to the awareness program. Budget is not the indicator, fancy metrics are not the indicator, people are the indicator. If you have just 30% of one persons time dedicated to your awareness program, you will fail. Could you image the results if one-third of one person is all you dedicated to your EndPoint security or Incident Response efforts? If you want to change organizational behavior (Stage 3 of the Security Awareness Maturity Model) you need at least 1.4 FTEs (Full Time Employees) dedicated to your awareness program. If you want to go beyond behavior and change culture and measure that change, you need at least 2.6 FTEs. And that is for organizations with 5,000 employees. How do we know this? Simple, we have hard data from over 1,000 security awareness professionals ...

Depression is a common disorder among adolescents. If left untreated, it can cause significant disability, illness, and even death. Teens with depression often engage in risky health behaviors, such as smoking, drug and alcohol use, unprotected sex, and unhealthy eating and exercise patterns. By reducing these health risk behaviors, depressed adolescents may be able to avoid negative health consequences and improve their physical and mental health. This study will determine the effectiveness of a health education intervention in reducing risky health behaviors in adolescents with depression.. Participants in this study will be invited to enroll during a visit to a participating primary care clinic. Participants will be randomly assigned to either partake in a health education intervention or receive standard care. Both groups will continue to receive treatment through their primary care clinic.

Background This updated Cochrane Review incorporates new information from recent randomized controlled trials on culturally appropriate diabetes health education interventions. Methods An electronic literature search of six databases was repeated, with databases of ongoing trials checked and three journals hand-searched. Meta-analysis was carried out for sufficiently homogeneous outcomes, and common themes among trials were highlighted. Results A total of 22 new trials were added to the original 11. Meta-analysis of 28 trials containing suitable data showed significant improvements in glycaemic control (HbA1c) and diabetes knowledge over a period of 24 months, after the delivery of culturally appropriate education to participants, compared with those receiving conventional care. There were no consistent benefits over the control group in other selected outcome ...

Yup, its still Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.. In fact, I stand corrected. It is the Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.. And I have a sneaking suspicion that youve forgotten that-that to you its Cord Blood Awareness Blog Month, or International Group B Strep Awareness Month-or even Eye Injury Prevention Month-but within all those months youve forgotten about Minority Mental Healths existence.. Which is just par for the course.. But its a deadly serious issue-and maybe if we all knew a little bit more about it, wed be able to keep it in our heads just a wee bit longer.. Its hard to know where to start.. Maybe with this treasure: According to the American Psychiatric Association, one out of every three African-Americans who needs mental health care actually receives it.. And, apparently once theyve gotten it, theyre not that thrilled with what theyve got. The APA also found that, compared to the general population, African-Americans tend to ...

© 2015 World Stroke Organization. Background: Urgent assessment is essential after stroke. Several countries have had public education campaigns, based on the FAST (Face-Arm-Speech-Time) test to reduce delays in seeking attention. However, the impact of these campaigns on patient behavior is uncertain. Methods: We prospectively determined patient behavior after incident major stroke (NIHSS|3) in a UK population based study (Oxford Vascular Study) before (2002-2008) and after (2009-2013) introduction of the FAST TV-campaign and assessed any sustained impact of campaign continuation. Results: Among 668 consecutive patients with major stroke, medical attention was sought by a bystander in 553 (89·6%). Patients were more likely to present directly to emergency services (OR=2·18, 95%CI:1·54-3·09, P|0·0001) after the campaign and to arrive at hospital within 3h (OR=2·18, 1·55-3·06, P|0·0001). Median [IQR] time to seeking attention fell from 53 [15-265] to 31 [7-120] minutes (P=0·005) and median

Research on health disparities increasingly demonstrates the importance of place as a key determinant of population health and health disparities. Attributes of communities and neighborhoods powerfully influence health status by shaping social and economic opportunity and exposure to health risks and resources. Maps constructed using tools such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) offer policymakers, advocates, journalists, and the general public important means to better understand the relationship between geography, policy, and health. These tools have helped to spawn and support research, policy and planning efforts, and public education campaigns focused on addressing community-level determinants of health.. To better understand the potential of maps and mapping tools to support a health equity agenda, this web conference will feature presentations by leading thinkers working in a range of sectors.. Organized by The Opportunity Agenda with support from The California Endowment and special ...
The National Health Education Standards (NHES) were developed to establish, promote and support health-enhancing behaviors for students in all grade levels-from pre-Kindergarten through grade 12. The NHES provide a framework for teachers, administrators, and policy makers in designing or selecting curricula, allocating instructional resources, and assessing student achievement and progress. Importantly, the standards provide students, families and communities with concrete expectations for health education.. First published in 1995, the NHES were created in response to several model standards being developed for other areas of education by educational leaders across the United States in the early 1990s. With support from the American Cancer Society, the Joint Committee on National Health Education Standards was formed to develop the standards. Committee members included. ...

Review question What is the randomised controlled trial evidence for mHealth-delivered education interventions in heart failure (HF) knowledge, self-care and self-efficacy for people with HF when compared to traditional methods of patient education?. Background Education is vital for self-care (activities individuals undertake with the intention of improving health, preventing disease, limiting illness and restoring health) in HF. Traditionally, education has been provided to people with heart failure in a face-to-face manner, using paper-based materials or video/DVD presentations. In an age of rapidly-evolving technology and uptake of smartphones and tablet devices, mHealth-based technology is a new way to provide health education, with the benefit of being able to reach people who are unable or unwilling to access traditional HF education programmes and services..

The late life disability instrument (LLDI) was developed to assess limitations in instrumental and management roles using a small and restricted sample. In this paper we examine the measurement properties of the LLDI using data from the Lifestyle Interventions and Independence for Elders Pilot (LIFE-P) study. LIFE-P participants, aged 70-89 years, were at elevated risk of disability. The 424 participants were enrolled at the Cooper Institute, Stanford University, University of Pittsburgh, and Wake Forest University. Physical activity and successful aging health education interventions were compared after 12-months of follow-up. Using factor analysis, we determined whether the LLDIs factor structure was comparable with that reported previously. We further examined how each item related to measured disability using item response theory (IRT). The factor structure for the limitation domain within the LLDI in the LIFE-P study did not corroborate previous findings. However, the factor structure using the

Seven teen suicides in one county over a two-year span prompted residents whose lives were touched by suicide to form DeFeet, an educational and advocacy group devoted to the message that suicide is preventable. Thanks in part to its trainings, public speakers, support groups, public education campaigns, and advocacy for gun safety, local schools now screen all students for suicide risk starting in middle school. A local health clinic now screens all patients and credits DeFeet, named for its annual 5K memorial walk, with creating an environment where we are not as afraid to talk about suicide.
Study Purpose: This project is the baseline wave for the first large-scale, longitudinal study devoted to education and social inequality conducted in rural China. Results will contribute to an understanding of basic social stratification processes and provide insights for developing intervention strategies to improve educational access and effectiveness in rural China. Study Design: The need for an integrated approach to the study of poverty and education in China provides the motivation for this study and the guide to its design.

AGHI is aimed at preventing and treating disease, including certain types of cancer, heart problems, and genetic disorders. In collaboration with HudsonAlpha in Huntsville, UAB Medicine is providing genomic testing, interpretation, and counseling free of charge to residents in each of Alabamas 67 counties.

Those participants will receive genetic counseling and be linked to appropriate medical care..

Shanti Das, music industry veteran and creator of Silence the Shame, recently sat down with our publication to discuss the importance of mental health awareness during the holidays.. How did Silence the Shame get its start?. My dad committed suicide when I was 7 months old. It was really difficult on our family growing up knowing that my father had committed suicide and we didnt talk about it. Particularly in the African American community, I think its something that people shy away from. Sometimes when you need help, you just talk to your mom or you pray. I decided to finally forgive my dad when I was an adult and I went to counseling in my 30s. I realized how impactful and helpful that was for me and I regret us not going to counseling as a family growing up. Also, a few years ago, one of my best friends committed suicide and I also have a family member that suffers from bi-polar disorder. I went through my own depression just a couple of years ago and, for the first time in my life, had ...

I am thrilled to be involved in the Project: Sweat Free health education campaign, because it is an opportunity for me to talk about what many in the fashion world consider a taboo topic - excessive underarm sweating can be a serious medical condition that affects many men and women across the country. I consider myself a very action-oriented person, and I want to urge people who feel that their sweating is impacting their daily activities and choices to not be embarrassed about it and speak to their dermatologist about appropriate treatment options. When women are afraid that they are going to sweat on their clothes, they become less confident in certain fabrics due to fear of showing sweat stains, whether they are dressed in casual clothes or in haute couture ...
