Screening for cervical cancer: a review of women's attitudes, knowledge, and behaviour. (1/12010)

The United Kingdom (UK) cervical screening programme has been successful in securing participation of a high proportion of targeted women, and has seen a fall in mortality rates of those suffering from cervical cancer. There remains, however, a significant proportion of unscreened women and, of women in whom an abnormality is detected, many will not attend for colposcopy. The present work reviews the psychological consequences of receiving an abnormal cervical smear result and of secondary screening and treatment, and examines reasons for women's non-participation in the screening programme. Psychological theories of screening behavior are used to elucidate women's reactions and to suggest methods of increasing participation, of improving the quality of the service, and of reducing women's anxiety. A literature search identified studies that examine factors influencing women's participation in the screening programme, their psychological reaction to the receipt of an abnormal cervical smear result, and experiences of colposcopy. Reasons for non-participation include administrative failures, unavailability of a female screener, inconvenient clinic times, lack of awareness of the test's indications and benefits, considering oneself not to be at risk of developing cervical cancer, and fear of embarrassment, pain, or the detection of cancer. The receipt of an abnormal result and referral for colposcopy cause high levels of distress owing to limited understanding of the meaning of the smear test; many women believe the test aims to detect existing cervical cancer. The quality of the cervical screening service can be enhanced by the provision of additional information, by improved quality of communication, and by consideration of women's health beliefs. This may result in increased participation in, and satisfaction with, the service.  (+info)

Illness behaviour in elite middle and long distance runners. (2/12010)

OBJECTIVES: To examine the illness attitudes and beliefs known to be associated with abnormal illness behaviour (where symptoms are present in excess of objective signs and pathology) in elite middle and long distance runners, in comparison with non-athlete controls. METHODS: A total of 150 athletes were surveyed using the illness behaviour questionnaire as an instrument to explore the psychological attributes associated with abnormal illness behaviour. Subjects also completed the general health questionnaire as a measure of psychiatric morbidity. A control group of 150 subjects, matched for age, sex, and social class, were surveyed using the same instruments. RESULTS: A multivariate analysis of illness behaviour questionnaire responses showed that the athletes' group differed significantly from the control group (Hotelling's T: Exact F = 2.68; p = 0.01). In particular, athletes were more somatically focused (difference between means -0.27; 95% confidence interval -0.50 to -0.03) and more likely to deny the impact of stresses in their life (difference between means 0.78; 95% confidence interval 0.31 to 1.25). Athletes were also higher scorers on the Whiteley Index of Hypochondriasis (difference between means 0.76; 95% confidence interval 0.04 to 1.48). There were no differences in the levels of psychiatric morbidity between the two groups. CONCLUSIONS: The illness attitudes and beliefs of athletes differ from those of a well matched control population. The origin of these psychological attributes is not clear but those who treat athletes need to be aware of them.  (+info)

Placebo medication use in patient care: a survey of medical interns. (5/12010)

The use of placebo medication, long recognized by clinicians, often has serious practical implications, such as patient deception. Past evidence has suggested that resident physicians tend to misuse placebo medication. Interns from two consecutive years of a residency program were surveyed anonymously to assess their knowledge and use of placebos. Of the 74 interns surveyed, 44 (59%) were familiar with placebo use in patient care. Fifty percent of these interns familiar with placebo use had learned about placebos from another physician. All interns who had learned about placebos during their internships had learned from another physician, whereas interns who had gained their knowledge of placebos as medical students were as likely to have learned from the medical literature as they were to have learned from a physician (P = 0.027). Interns aware of placebo use were more likely to consider placebo administration for suspected, factitious pain (P = 0.022). The present study uncovered no relationship between interns' estimations of placebo efficacy and the utility they attributed to placebos in assessing a complaint of pain. This suggests that conceptual inconsistencies underlie their use of placebos. Interns often learn of placebos as medical students and are influenced by physician-mentors. Placebo use in patient care is an area of attention for medical educators.  (+info)

Relationships between various attitudes towards self-determination in health care with special reference to an advance directive. (6/12010)

OBJECTIVES: The subject of patient self-determination in health care has gained broad interest because of the increasing number of incompetent patients. In an attempt to solve the problems related to doctors' decision making in such circumstances, advance directives have been developed. The purpose of this study was to examine relationships between public attitudes towards patient autonomy and advance directives. SUBJECTS AND MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: A stratified random sample of 600 adults in northern Sweden was surveyed by a questionnaire with a response rate of 78.2%. The subjects were asked about their wish for control of their health care, their concerns about health care, their treatment preferences in a life-threatening situation (both reversible and irreversible), and their attitudes towards the application of advance directives. RESULTS: Numerous relationships between various aspects of self-determination in health care (desire for control, fears of over-treatment, and choice of treatment level) in general and advance directives, in particular, were found. Those who wanted to have a say in their health care (about 94%) also mainly supported the use of an advance directive. CONCLUSIONS: The fact that almost 30% of the respondents were undecided concerning their personal use of advance directives points to a lack of knowledge and to the necessity of education of the public on these issues.  (+info)

How physician executives and clinicians perceive ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals. (7/12010)

OBJECTIVES: To compare the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals and the attributes that might lead to the existence of these ethical issues. DESIGN: Self-completion questionnaire administered from February to July 1997. SETTING: Different health regions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. PARTICIPANTS: Random sample of 457 physicians (317 clinicians and 140 physician executives) from several hospitals in various regions across the kingdom. RESULTS: There were statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding the existence of various ethical issues in their hospitals. The vast majority of physician executives did not perceive that seven of the eight issues addressed by the study were ethical concerns in their hospitals. However, the majority of the clinicians perceived that six of the same eight issues were ethical considerations in their hospitals. Statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians were observed in only three out of eight attributes that might possibly lead to the existence of ethical issues. The most significant attribute that was perceived to result in ethical issues was that of hospitals having a multinational staff. CONCLUSION: The study calls for the formulation of a code of ethics that will address specifically the physicians who work in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As a more immediate initiative, it is recommended that seminars and workshops be conducted to provide physicians with an opportunity to discuss the ethical dilemmas they face in their medical practice.  (+info)

Attitudes, knowledge, and risk perceptions of women with breast and/or ovarian cancer considering testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2. (8/12010)

PURPOSE: This study examined baseline knowledge, beliefs, and risk perceptions among a group of 200 women with breast and/or ovarian cancer who participated in a trial designed to improve decision making about genetic testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Women were identified by self-referral, physician referral, and tumor registry extraction and invited to participate in a randomized trial in which testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2 was offered free of charge. Subjects completed baseline questionnaires and interviews that assessed knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions of risk of having an alteration in BRCA1 or BRCA2. RESULTS: Sixty percent of women overestimated their chances of having a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation compared with estimates from a BRCA1/BRCA2 risk model. Women who have at least three relatives with breast or ovarian cancer were one third (95% confidence interval, 0.2 to 0.6) as likely to overestimate their risk of having a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation compared with women who have two or fewer affected relatives. Knowledge was limited about BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations and cancer risk associated with gene mutations. Eighty-four percent of the women indicated a probable or definite interest in testing. CONCLUSION: A high proportion of the high-risk women in this study had knowledge deficits about BRCA1 and BRCA2 and overestimated their risk of having a mutation. Although some degree of caution should be used in generalizing the results of this study to practice settings, the data provide insight into the challenges clinicians will face in communicating with patients about cancer genetics.  (+info)

General knowledge is also called common knowledge. It is basically the information that everybody should ideally know. General knowledge is not confined to a certain subject. It involves information about varied fields including science, history, literature, geography, economics, social science, entertainment, business, sports, current news and happenings in the world. General knowledge is important because knowing about such facts portrays a person as someone who is aware, knowledgeable and not ignorant. Kids may have general knowledge lessons in schools but general knowledge is something that needs to be assimilated over the years by reading books and by gathering information from any resources such as the TV, internet, newspapers and even by talking to people.

Research has found that on average males tend to score higher than females on tests of overall general knowledge and in most domains of knowledge tested.[1][5][10][11] Males also score higher than females on the information subtest of the WAIS[1][12] and the WISC,[13] with small to medium effect sizes. In a comparison between male and female university students in 19 domains of academic knowledge, males had greater knowledge in 14 domains, especially in physical science and technology, but also in humanities and civics.[5] A general knowledge composite across all 19 tests showed a male advantage of medium effect size. A study of university students in Northern Ireland found that males scored higher in general knowledge than females, as well as in 12 of 19 specific knowledge domains. Females scored moderately higher than males in medicine and cookery. The authors of this study suggested that this male advantage most likely reflects differences in interests rather than differences in verbal or ...

TOK is not traditional text-based philosophy. Nor is it Epistemology with a major emphasis on the useful, but ultimately slippery and paradoxical, notion of Justified True Belief. TOK Knowledge Questions are big questions; but they are not too big. Anchored in the real world they stop short of wild metaphysical speculation. Ever so often timeless philosophical riddles emerge naturally in TOK classes. It can be fun; even awe inspiring to allow students a first pass or brief encounter with them. This is more than playing tennis with the net down; as long as dizzy, aimless discussion is avoided; or better-elevated.. One way of framing the biggest (from the Western perspective: Pre-Socratic) metaphysical questions is to acknowledge that they are way beyond the scope of 100 hours of TOK. Their resolution may be forever beyond the grasp of mere human intellect and ingenuity. Another way is to designate (and perhaps sanitize) them as the subject matter of certain Areas of Knowledge-Philosophy (as a ...

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 ...

In artificial intelligence, knowledge-based agents draw on a pool of logical sentences to infer conclusions about the world. At the knowledge level, we only need to specify what the agent knows and what its goals are; a logical abstraction separate from details of implementation. This notion of knowledge level was first introduced by Allen Newell in the 1980s, to have a way to rationalize an agents behavior. The agent takes actions based on knowledge it possesses, in an attempt to reach specific goals. It chooses actions according to the principle of rationality. Beneath the knowledge level resides the symbol level. Whereas the knowledge level is world oriented, namely that it concerns the environment in which the agent operates, the symbol level is system oriented, in that it includes the mechanisms the agent has available to operate. The knowledge level rationalizes the agents behavior, while the symbol level mechanizes the agents behavior. For example, in a computer program, the knowledge ...

Background: In Uganda 1,100 women die of breast cancer every year, with a patient peak age of 30 -39 years, majority of patients present late at stage III and IV.

Objective: The objective of this study was to assess knowledge and preventive practices about breast cancer and associated factors, among rural women aged 20-49 years in Kigulu County. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study conducted between 1st and 12th /June/ 2016, involving 790 rural women aged 20-49 years and residents of Kigulu County, Iganga District. Participants were selected by multistage stratified sampling and interviewed about selected aspects of breast cancer knowledge and practice using pretested structured questionnaire.

The interaction between a pregnant mother and her developing baby are numerous and varied ranging from the food she eats to the kicks of the baby that she feels. What the developing baby feeds on goes a long way in determining its state of health at birth. For a pregnant mother to eat healthfully, she needs to have adequate knowledge of the different component of food. But if the knowledge is not put in practice, it becomes meaningless.. The major objective of this study therefore was to examine the nutritional knowledge and practice of the pregnant women in Onitsha North and South Local Government Areas of Anambra State. Because of the large number involved, and the fact that most of the hospital had no maternity, only two hundred and fifty expectant mothers were used. Eight specific objectives and corresponding research questions and six hypotheses were stated and used for the study.. The instrument for data collection was a questionnaire which had three sections. The personal data of the ...

Advocacy begins at home. In fact, doing advocacy begins first with yourself. When you make yourself aware of how the world is you are in a stronger position to persuade others of the need to act. Advocacy is about awareness. Raising awareness about issues at the local level is the meat-and-potatoes of advocacy work. When we can make a difference locally, we are more likely to make a difference internationally.. Edmund Rice International wishes to support strongly local advocacy action in relevant areas: education, children, and ecology. Much of the action required begins at the local level with local groups. If a local group does not exist, then the opportunity exists to create one.. What follows below is adapted from the Church Advocacy Days website. Advocacy Days is an annual advocacy event in Washington DC when over three thousand church and faith-based activists spend a long week-end exploring the issues and campaigning with their local representatives. These folk know how to do advocacy so ...
Anticipated demographic changes, including aging and minority status, in the next decade demand that healthcare professionals-in-training develop the skills necessary to provide culturally competent care for some of Americas most vulnerable patients, minority older adults. Communication skills are especially important in the care for older adults, who are at particularly high risk of having low health literacy. Low health literacy may lead to increased morbidity and mortality, and increased healthcare costs. Medical education strategies to combat low health literacy may include raising awareness of this issue, enhancing provider communication skills, and identifying characteristics of culturally appropriate patient handout materials. These objectives are the backbone of this 2.5 hour Low Health Literacy workshop for interdisciplinary trainees, including social work, nursing and medical students ...
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. State Board of Education, Subtitle 04 Specific Subjects, Chapter 18, Programs in Comprehensive Health Education. The repealing of the separate regulations on the teaching of family life education and HIV/AIDS prevention education and compiling them under COMAR 13A.04.18 occurred on March 27, 1991 ...
