Achieving 'best practice' in health promotion: improving the fit between research and practice. (1/195)

This paper is based on the proposition that transfer of knowledge between researchers and practitioners concerning effective health promotion interventions is less than optimal. It considers how evidence concerning effectiveness in health promotion is established through research, and how such evidence is applied by practitioners and policy makers in deciding what to do and what to fund when addressing public health problems. From this examination it is concluded that there are too few rewards for researchers which encourage research with potential for widespread application and systematic development of promising interventions to a stage of field dissemination. Alternatively, practitioners often find themselves in the position of tackling a public health problem where evidence of efficacy is either lacking, or has to be considered alongside a desire to respond to expressed community needs, or the need to respond to political imperative. Several different approaches to improving the fit between research and practice are proposed, and they include improved education and training for practitioners, outcomes focussed program planning, and a more structured approach to rewarding research development and dissemination.  (+info)

Fin-de-siecle Philadelphia and the founding of the Medical Library Association. (2/195)

Philadelphia at the time of the founding of the Medical Library Association (MLA) is described. Several factors that promoted the birth of the association are discussed, including the rapid increase in the labor force and the rise of other health related professions, such as the American Hospital Association and the professionalization of nursing. The growth of the public hygiene movement in Philadelphia at the time of Sir William Osler's residency in the city is discussed. Finally, the rapid growth of the medical literature is considered a factor promoting the development of the association. This article continues the historical consideration of the MLA begun in the author's article on the three founders of the association. The background information is drawn from the items listed in the bibliography, and the conclusions are those of the author.  (+info)

Cigarettes and suicide: a prospective study of 50,000 men. (3/195)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the relation between smoking and suicide, controlling for various confounders. METHODS: More than 50,000 predominantly White, middle-aged and elderly male health professionals were followed up prospectively with biennial questionnaires from 1986 through 1994. The primary end point was suicide. Characteristics controlled for included age, marital status, body mass index, physical activity, alcohol intake, coffee consumption, and history of cancer. RESULTS: Eighty-two members of the cohort committed suicide during the 8-year follow-up period. In age-adjusted analyses with never smokers as the comparison group, the relative risk of suicide was 1.4 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 0.8, 2.3) among former smokers, 2.6 (95% CI = 0.9, 7.5) for light smokers (< 15 cigarettes/day), and 4.5 (95% CI = 2.3, 8.8) among heavier smokers. After adjustment for potential confounders, the relative risks were 1.4 (95% CI = 0.9, 2.4), 2.5 (95% CI = 0.9, 7.3), and 4.3 (95% CI = 2.2, 8.5), respectively. CONCLUSION: We found a positive, dose-related association between smoking and suicide among White men. Although inference about causality is not justified, our findings indicate that the smoking-suicide connection is not entirely due to the greater tendency among smokers to be unmarried, to be sedentary, to drink heavily, or to develop cancers.  (+info)

Integrating Healthy Communities concepts into health professions training. (4/195)

To meet the demands of the evolving health care system, health professionals need skills that will allow them to anticipate and respond to the broader social determinants of health. To ensure that these skills are learned during their professional education and training, health professions institutions must look beyond the medical model of caring for communities. Models in Seattle and Roanoke demonstrate the curricular changes necessary to ensure that students in the health professions are adequately prepared to contribute to building Healthy Communities in the 21st century. In addition to these models, a number of resources are available to help promote the needed institutional changes.  (+info)

Planning health care delivery systems. (5/195)

The increasing concern and interest in the health delivery system in the United States has placed the health system planners in a difficult position. They are inadequately prepared, in many cases, to deal with the management techniques that have been designed for use with system problems. This situation has been compounded by the failure, until recently, of educational programs to train new health professionals in these techniques. Computer simulation is a technique that allows the planners dynamic feedback on his proposed plans. This same technique provides the planning student with a better understanding of the systems planning process.  (+info)

Housework, paid work and psychiatric symptoms. (6/195)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the hypothesis that work burden, the simultaneous engagement in paid work and unpaid family housework, is a potential risk factor for psychiatric symptoms among women. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was carried out with 460 women randomly selected from a poor area of the city of Salvador, Brazil. Women between 18 to 70 years old, who reported having a paid occupation or were involved in unpaid domestic activities for their families, were eligible. Work burden-related variables were defined as: a) double work shift, i.e., simultaneous engagement in a paid job plus unpaid housework; and b) daily working time. Psychiatric symptoms were collected through a validated questionnaire, the QMPA. RESULTS: Positive, statistically significant associations between high (>7 symptoms) QMPA scores and either double work shift (prevalence ratio - PR=2.04, 95% confidence interval - CI: 1.16, 2.29) or more than 10 hours of daily work time (PR=2.29, 95% CI: 1.96, 3.43) were found after adjustment for age, marital status and number of pre-school children. CONCLUSIONS: Major correlates of high QMPA scores are work burden variables. Being married or having pre-school children are also associated with high QMPA scores only when associated with work burden.  (+info)

Educational outcomes and leadership to meet the needs of modern health care. (8/195)

If professionals are to be equipped better to meet the needs of modern health care systems and the standards of practice required, significant educational change is still required. Educational change requires leadership, and lack of educational leadership may have impeded change in the past. In practical terms standards refer to outcomes, and thus an outcome based approach to clinical education is advocated as the one most likely to provide an appropriate framework for organisational and system change. The provision of explicit statements of learning intent, an educational process enabling acquisition and demonstration of these, and criteria for ensuring their achievement are the key features of such a framework. The derivation of an appropriate outcome set should emphasise what the learners will be able to do following the learning experience, how they will subsequently approach these tasks, and what, as a professional, they will bring to their practice. Once defined, the learning outcomes should determine, in turn, the nature of the learning experience enabling their achievement and the assessment processes to certify that they have been met. Provision of the necessary educational environment requires an understanding of the close interrelationship between learning style, learning theory, and methods whereby active and deep learning may be fostered. If desired change is to prevail, a conducive educational culture which values learning as well as evaluation, review, and enhancement must be engendered.

The Nursing Global Health Professions Student Survey (GHPSS) has been conducted in schools in 39 countries and the Gaza Strip/West Bank (identified as sites for the remainder of this paper). In half the sites, over 20% of the students currently smoked cigarettes, with males having higher rates than females in 22 sites. Over 60% of students reported having been exposed to secondhand smoke in public places in 23 of 39 sites. The majority of students recognized that they are role models in society, believed they should receive training on counseling patients to quit using tobacco, but few reported receiving any formal training. Tobacco control efforts must discourage tobacco use among health professionals, promote smoke free workplaces, and implement programs that train health professionals in effective cessation-counseling techniques ...

When speaking to all kinds of people about health profession education, I often get asked, Why do people get a masters degree in health professions education? or Sounds very interesting but where would it lead? I, of course, convey the passion and conviction I have for this field when answering these questions. I have also found one resource in particular to be extremely informative and helpful. It is a lot more unbiased than I am and most who read it, thank me for the reference! Anyway, its a relatively brief analysis of the motivation and needs of 20 educator/clinicians in multiple disciplines who chose to enroll in an explicitly interprofessional masters program in health profession education. Here is the abstract and I invite you to read and/or download the full version which is available online. Why are you here?

In the 2015−16 application cycle, White applicants represented the largest group. Whites accounted for twice as many applicants as Asians, the next larg-est group.8 American Indian/Alaska Native applicants and enrollees have nearly doubled when viewed in combination with other groups. During the last five years, more than 50% of White applicants ultimately enrolled in dental school.9 The upward trend contin-ued in 2016 for Whites, Asians, and Hispanic or Latino accepted applicants. In 2016, Asian applicants had a dental school enrollment rate of 49.8%, and the Hispanic or Latino applicants had an enrollment rate of 50.7%, nearly equaling the 54.5% enrollment rate of accepted White applicants. However, the number of Latino applicants (1,098) was significantly lower than White applicants (5,752). (See Table 1.). As we explore ways to improve access for under-served areas and provide culturally competent oral health care, it is helpful to examine provider access in these locations. The Bureau of ...
The proposed national satisfaction poll would be a costly and pointless exercise, says Lee Harvey The Higher Education Funding Council for Englands proposed national student survey is a misleading, intrusive, expensive and ultimately worthless venture. The original proposal was to survey graduates about their experience, but Hefce now proposes to survey students halfway through their final year. This is an unacceptable intrusion into university life that will damage existing improvement processes based on internal explorations of student satisfaction. Many universities conduct institution-wide surveys of the student experience. These are designed to address issues of concern to students and are linked to action cycles. The proposed survey in January 2005, which will neither contribute to the improvement action process nor provide any useful information, will clash with these important internal processes, also scheduled for the spring term. The result will be low response rates on one or ...

T his months newsletter is focused on interprofessional collaboration-a topic that is timely not only because of the work currently being done by the many valuable institutional and organizational partnerships within and without the osteopathic medical education (OME) community, but also because of the shift in both health care and medical and health professions education toward more interprofessional collaborative models. There is growing evidencei that when health care professionals work together to care for patients, patients receive better quality care and better health outcomes. However, generating a framework that essentially remodels the health care system is far more complicated than simply understanding and supporting the concept. While evolving changes in payment models from fee-for-service to prospective payment system of health care delivery provide an environment for team-based care, in order for national interprofessional collaborative practice to become a reality, committed ...
Fields & Barry (2016) go on to clarify this bigger picture: Delivering primary care within a value-based model involves much more than changing contracts and compensation. It requires a proactive clinical focus, in which patients at high risk for disease progression are identified for early intervention, patient education services are expanded, care is coordinated across sites and specialties, and redundant, non-evidence-based treatments are eliminated-all with three key objectives: making patients healthier, providing high-quality care, and reducing the total cost of care. (p. 2). More than a decade ago, the Institute of Medicine reported the need for ongoing education and training of health professionals to meet the changing needs of healthcare consumers. The report, A Bridge to Quality from the 2003 Health Professions Education Summit, called for innovative approaches in education to equip health professionals with new skills and roles in order to best respond to the shifting needs of ...

Multidisciplinary fragmentation contributes to myriad medical errors and as many as 98,000 patient deaths per year. The Institute of Medicine has proposed steps to improve healthcare delivery, including providing more opportunities for interdisciplinary training. The authors describe the interprofessional education (IPE) program at Western University of Health Sciences (WesternU) in Pomona, California. In 2007, 9 colleges at WesternU-including the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific-undertook an IPE initiative that resulted in creation of a 3-phase program. Part of the IPE development process involved identifying core competencies that were nontechnical and nonclinical and common to all healthcare professions. The IPE development and implementation process and the identified competencies were analyzed for their relationship to the tenets of osteopathic medicine and the core competencies of osteopathic medical education. Although these tenets and core competencies were not ...

With the ACA projected to provide insurance coverage to an additional 35.2 million people by 2014, we should expect a surge in demand for all types of health care, from doctors visits to surgeries. Beyond simply expanding health insurance coverage, the ACA emphasizes preventive care as a strategy to both improve the health status of Americans and control costs. The law provides increased grants to health professions education institutions for the training of primary care physicians, physician assistants and dental professionals. In order to address potential shortages that might be driven by the ACA, and take full advantage of the ACAs focus on preventive care and integrated care delivery, Congress and state legislatures need to focus on expanding the health work force and supporting collaboration between health workers. Funds are necessary to expand medical education, as well as training for physician assistants, nurses and nurse practitioners, laboratory workers, pharmacists and pharmacy staff,
