Health at work in the general practice. (1/2817)

BACKGROUND: Poor mental health and high stress levels have been reported in staff working in general practice. Little is known about how practices are tackling these and other issues of health at work in the absence of an established occupational healthcare service. AIM: To establish the extent of knowledge and good practice of health at work policies for staff working in general practice. METHOD: Practice managers in 450 randomly selected general practices in England were interviewed by telephone, and the general practitioner (GP) with lead responsibility for workplace health in the same practice was surveyed by postal questionnaire. We surveyed the existence and implementation of practice policies, causes and effects of stress on practice staff, and agreement between practice managers and GPs on these issues. RESULTS: Seventy-one per cent of GPs and 76% of practice managers responded, with at least one reply from 408 (91%) practices and responses from both the practice manager and GPs from 252 (56%) practices. Seventy-nine per cent of practices had a policy on monitoring risks and hazards. The proportion of practices with other workplace health policies ranged from 21% (policy to minimize stress) to 91% (policy on staff smoking). There was a tendency for practices to have policies but not to implement them. The three causes of stress for practice staff most commonly cites by both GP and practice manager responders were 'patient demands', 'too much work', and 'patient abuse/aggression'. Sixty-five per cent of GPs felt that stress had caused mistakes in their practices. Although there was general agreement between the two groups, there was a considerable lack of agreement between responders working in the same practices. CONCLUSIONS: The study revealed substantial neglect of workplace health issues with many practices falling foul of health and safety legislation. This report should help general practices identify issues to tackle to improve their workplace health, and the Health at Work in the NHS project to focus on areas where their targeted help will be most worthwhile.  (+info)

The managed care revolution: how medical technologists have tolerated the change. (2/2817)

A repeated cross-sectional study on the psychological profiles and interpersonal styles of highly stressed medical technologists (perfusionists) has found remarkable consistency in internal psychological profiles and differences in interpersonal dynamics over a 6-year period. Six years ago a longitudinal study was begun to track the psychological profiles of perfusionists. Surgeons can repair cardiac defects only after a beating heart has been stopped. In order for the brain and other organs to survive cardiac surgery, they must be perfused with well-oxygenated blood. As a result, the life of every cardiac surgery patient literally sits in the hands of the cardiac perfusionist. The stress of placing patients on and off the 'pump' is one that is experienced by cardiovascular perfusionists on a daily basis. This stress has been likened to that of air traffic controllers who continually prepare planes for take off and/or landing. In the 6 years between studies, medical technologists have changed very little psychologically. They remain very well balanced. However, there have been significant changes in their interpersonal behaviours. Instead of the 'well-balanced' interpersonal profiles of 6 years ago, there is a higher degree of assertiveness/aggressiveness being reported. Managed Care has begun to impact interpersonal behaviours but has not yet altered the more resilient platform of internal psychological balance.  (+info)

Sentinel lymph node biopsy and axillary dissection in breast cancer: results in a large series. (3/2817)

BACKGROUND: Axillary lymph node dissection is an established component of the surgical treatment of breast cancer, and is an important procedure in cancer staging; however, it is associated with unpleasant side effects. We have investigated a radioactive tracer-guided procedure that facilitates identification, removal, and pathologic examination of the sentinel lymph node (i.e., the lymph node first receiving lymphatic fluid from the area of the breast containing the tumor) to predict the status of the axilla and to assess the safety of foregoing axillary dissection if the sentinel lymph node shows no involvement. METHODS: We injected 5-10 MBq of 99mTc-labeled colloidal particles of human albumin peritumorally in 376 consecutive patients with breast cancer who were enrolled at the European Institute of Oncology during the period from March 1996 through March 1998. The sentinel lymph node in each case was visualized by lymphoscintigraphy, and its general location was marked on the overlying skin. During breast surgery, the sentinel lymph node was identified for removal by monitoring the acoustic signal from a hand-held gamma ray-detecting probe. Total axillary dissection was then carried out. The pathologic status of the sentinel lymph node was compared with that of the whole axilla. RESULTS: The sentinel lymph node was identified in 371 (98.7%) of the 376 patients and accurately predicted the state of the axilla in 359 (95.5%) of the patients, with 12 false-negative findings (6.7%; 95% confidence interval = 3.5%-11.4%) among a total of 180 patients with positive axillary lymph nodes. CONCLUSIONS: Sentinel lymph node biopsy using a gamma ray-detecting probe allows staging of the axilla with high accuracy in patients with primary breast cancer. A randomized trial is necessary to determine whether axillary dissection may be avoided in those patients with an uninvolved sentinel lymph node.  (+info)

Occupational human immunodeficiency virus infection in health care workers: worldwide cases through September 1997. (4/2817)

The average estimated risk of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection for health care workers following a percutaneous or mucous exposure is <0.5% in incidence studies, although a case-control study suggests it is much higher for highest-risk percutaneous exposure. To characterize exposures resulting in HIV transmission, we reviewed available data on occupational cases reported worldwide, identifying 94 documented and 170 possible cases. The majority of documented infections occurred in nurses, after contact with the blood of a patient with AIDS by means of percutaneous exposure, with a device placed in an artery or vein. High-exposure job categories, e.g., midwives and surgeons, are represented mostly among possible cases. Transmission occurred also through splashes, cuts, and skin contaminations, and in some cases despite postexposure prophylaxis with zidovudine. Health care workers could benefit if these data were incorporated in educational programs designed to prevent occupational bloodborne infections.  (+info)

High prevalence of hepatitis G virus (HGV) infections in dialysis staff. (5/2817)

BACKGROUND: Patients on renal replacement therapy, haemodialysis (HD), or after kidney transplantation (TX), are known to be at risk of acquiring blood-borne infections (HBV, HCV). GBV-C/Hepatitis G virus (HGV) has been described recently and is considered to cause blood-borne infections. The aim of this study was to analyse the risk for the medical staff of HD and TX patients to acquire HGV infection. METHODS: Eighty-five HD patients and 86 TX recipients were compared with 49 health-care workers and 64 blood donors as controls. The HGV prevalence was determined by RT-PCR and antibodies to E2 protein. RESULTS: A high prevalence of HGV was found in the medical staff (24%) which nearly corresponded to the prevalence of the patients (TX 36%, HD 25%) but not to the controls (9%). In contrast, the prevalence of HCV was low in the medical staff (2%) and controls (0%) but high in HD (13%) and TX (13%). Age and duration of employment in the department did not significantly influence the HGV prevalence in staff. The number of viraemic subjects in staff was high, possibly indicating a more recent infection. CONCLUSION: An occupational risk for HGV exists in medical staff of dialysis and transplant patients. Further routes of transmission than only parenteral may play a role in this setting.  (+info)

Nosocomial group A streptococcal infections associated with asymptomatic health-care workers--Maryland and California, 1997. (6/2817)

Group A Streptococcus (GAS), a common cause of pharyngitis and uncomplicated skin and soft tissue infections, can cause serious invasive infections (including necrotizing fasciitis and streptococcal toxic-shock syndrome [STSS]) and death. Since 1965, at least 15 postoperative or postpartum GAS outbreaks attributed to asymptomatic carriage in health-care workers (HCWs) have been reported. This report describes two nosocomial outbreaks of GAS infection in Maryland and California during 1996-1997; the findings suggest that early infection-control measures that include active surveillance may interrupt transmission and prevent morbidity and mortality.  (+info)

Effectiveness of training health professionals to provide smoking cessation interventions: systematic review of randomised controlled trials. (7/2817)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effectiveness of interventions that train healthcare professionals in methods for improving the quality of care delivered to patients who smoke. DESIGN: Systematic literature review. SETTING: Primary care medical and dental practices in the United States and Canada. Patients were recruited opportunistically. SUBJECTS: 878 healthcare professionals and 11,228 patients who smoked and were identified in eight randomised controlled trials. In each of these trials healthcare professionals received formal training in smoking cessation, and their performance was compared with that of a control group. MAIN MEASURES: Point prevalence rates of abstinence from smoking at six or 12 months in patients who were smokers at baseline. Rates of performance of tasks of smoking cessation by healthcare professionals, including offering counselling, setting dates to stop smoking, giving follow up appointments, distributing self help materials, and recommending nicotine gum. METHODS: Trials were identified by multiple methods. Data were abstracted according to predetermined criteria by two observers. When possible, meta-analysis was performed using a fixed effects model and the results were subjected to sensitivity analysis. RESULTS: Healthcare professionals who had received training were significantly more likely to perform tasks of smoking cessation than untrained controls. There was a modest increase in the odds of stopping smoking for smokers attending health professionals who had received training compared with patients attending control practitioners (odds ratio 1.35 (95% confidence interval 1.09 to 1.68)). This result was not robust to sensitivity analysis. The effects of training were increased if prompts and reminders were used. There was no definite benefit found for more intensive forms of counselling compared with minimal contact strategies. CONCLUSIONS: Training health professionals to provide smoking cessation interventions had a measurable impact on professional performance. A modest, but non-robust, effect on patient outcome was also found, suggesting that training alone is unlikely to be an effective strategy for improving quality of care, unless organisational and other factors are also considered.  (+info)

Understanding adverse events: human factors. (8/2817)

(1) Human rather than technical failures now represent the greatest threat to complex and potentially hazardous systems. This includes healthcare systems. (2) Managing the human risks will never be 100% effective. Human fallibility can be moderated, but it cannot be eliminated. (3) Different error types have different underlying mechanisms, occur in different parts of the organisation, and require different methods of risk management. The basic distinctions are between: Slips, lapses, trips, and fumbles (execution failures) and mistakes (planning or problem solving failures). Mistakes are divided into rule based mistakes and knowledge based mistakes. Errors (information-handling problems) and violations (motivational problems) Active versus latent failures. Active failures are committed by those in direct contact with the patient, latent failures arise in organisational and managerial spheres and their adverse effects may take a long time to become evident. (4) Safety significant errors occur at all levels of the system, not just at the sharp end. Decisions made in the upper echelons of the organisation create the conditions in the workplace that subsequently promote individual errors and violations. Latent failures are present long before an accident and are hence prime candidates for principled risk management. (5) Measures that involve sanctions and exhortations (that is, moralistic measures directed to those at the sharp end) have only very limited effectiveness, especially so in the case of highly trained professionals. (6) Human factors problems are a product of a chain of causes in which the individual psychological factors (that is, momentary inattention, forgetting, etc) are the last and least manageable links. Attentional "capture" (preoccupation or distraction) is a necessary condition for the commission of slips and lapses. Yet, its occurrence is almost impossible to predict or control effectively. The same is true of the factors associated with forgetting. States of mind contributing to error are thus extremely difficult to manage; they can happen to the best of people at any time. (7) People do not act in isolation. Their behaviour is shaped by circumstances. The same is true for errors and violations. The likelihood of an unsafe act being committed is heavily influenced by the nature of the task and by the local workplace conditions. These, in turn, are the product of "upstream" organisational factors. Great gains in safety can ve achieved through relatively small modifications of equipment and workplaces. (8) Automation and increasing advanced equipment do not cure human factors problems, they merely relocate them. In contrast, training people to work effectively in teams costs little, but has achieved significant enhancements of human performance in aviation. (9) Effective risk management depends critically on a confidential and preferable anonymous incident monitoring system that records the individual, task, situational, and organisational factors associated with incidents and near misses. (10) Effective risk management means the simultaneous and targeted deployment of limited remedial resources at different levels of the system: the individual or team, the task, the situation, and the organisation as a whole.  (+info)

The aim of this thesis is to investigate attitudes to functional foods (here defined as foods with health claims) among Swedish consumers and health-care professionals. The aim is also to survey demographics and health interests associated with the consumption of functional foods among Swedish consumers. Finally, the aim is to investigate health-care professionals knowledge of and willingness to recommend functional foods to patients.. Examples of functional foods used in the studies are probiotic fruit-drinks, probiotic milk-products, cholesterol-lowering spreads and fibre-rich bread with omega-3 fatty acids. Ten focus groups of consumers and three of health-care professionals were conducted. Two questionnaires were also used, one for consumers aged 17-75 years (n=2000) and one for health-care professionals (dieticians, n=100; registered nurses, n=200; physicians, n=200). Almost half of the consumers (48%) and exactly half (50%) of the health-care professionals responded.. The consumers ...
ACIP recommends HepB vaccination for unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated HCP with reasonably anticipated risk for blood or body fluid exposure. ACIP also recommends that vaccinated HCP receive postvaccination serologic testing (antibody to hepatitis B surface antigen [anti-HBs]) 1-2 months after the final dose of vaccine is administered (CDC. Immunization of health-care personnel: recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices [ACIP]. MMWR 2011;60 [No. RR-7]). Increasing numbers of HCP have received routine HepB vaccination either as infants (recommended since 1991) or as catch-up vaccination (recommended since 1995) in adolescence. HepB vaccination results in protective anti-HBs responses among approximately 95% of healthy-term infants. Certain institutions test vaccinated HCP by measuring anti-HBs upon hire or matriculation, even when anti-HBs testing occurs greater than 2 months after vaccination. This guidance can assist clinicians, occupational health and student ...
Most babies are positioned head down in the last four weeks in the womb, but if your baby is breech, and you are past your 36th week of pregnancy, your health-care professional may try to turn the baby around so its head is down near the birth canal. A technique called version is used to gently roll the baby around so the head is in the best position for labour and delivery. Your health-care professional will place his or her hands on your abdomen, then push or lift. You may be given a medication to relax the uterus and make the version procedure easier. During the procedure, your babys heart rate will be monitored and ultrasound may be used to check the babys position. Very rarely, version may cause problems with the babys heart rate or lead to early labour. Your health-care professional will be ready to deliver your baby if necessary, vaginally or by C-section. Sometimes, the baby will move back into breech position. If you believe your baby has switched positions again, discuss this at ...
In August 1983, CDC initiated prospective surveillance of health-care workers with documented parenteral or mucous-membrane exposures to potentially infectious body fluids from patients with definite or suspected acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). By December 31, 1983, 51 health-care workers with such exposures were enrolled in CDCs surveillance registry through the auspices of participating hospitals, other health-care institutions, and health departments in the United States.* None of these workers has developed signs or symptoms suggestive of AIDS. All but one of these workers had been followed for less than 12 months (see below). Among the 51 exposed health-care workers studied, 19 (37%) have been reported from New York; nine (18%), from Texas; seven (14%), from Pennsylvania; five (10%) from New Jersey; and 11 (21%), from seven other states. Exposures occurred between April 1981 and November 1983. Length of follow-up of exposed health-care workers ranged from 1 month to 32 months by ...
It is well established that pharmacotherapy is fundamental to disease and symptom management. Adherence to medication regimens is therefore essential for improved patient health outcomes. In reality, however, many patients experience difficulty with medication taking resulting in suboptimal adherence. Given the consequences of this pervasive problem, non-adherence is increasingly recognized as one of the leading challenges that professionals face in contemporary health care. As health-care professionals, nurses have an important role in combating this problem. This paper therefore examines the literature surrounding medication adherence for the purposes of enhancing professional knowledge and practice in this area. Specifically, the impact of poor adherence from the patients, health-care professional and health-care system perspective is detailed to highlight the significance of this issue. The underlying philosophical attributes of adherence and the interchangeable concepts of compliance and ...

DEC. 13, 2010 BY TRACIE WHITE. Currently, when heart patients phone a health-care professional complaining of chest pains, they are advised to call 911 for transportation to the local emergency room in case theyre having a heart attack.. About half of those patients are hospitalized, yet only 20 percent of them actually have heart attacks. At the same time, 2 percent of patients experiencing a heart attack are mistakenly sent home.. To improve on these statistics, the Stanford Cardiac Rehabilitation Program has developed an online decision-support system to triage patients with previously diagnosed coronary artery disease. The program consists of an online survey that can be administered by a health-care professional in five minutes or less.. "Patients dont know when to go to the ER," said Robert DeBusk, MD, founder of the Stanford Cardiac Rehabilitation Program, which focuses on developing more effective methods of managing chronic diseases. "They agonize, they wait. Once the patient does go ...

Posted: 12.02.2018. Comments: 0. Dear Member. The Department of Health and Social Care is asking for you to complete a national survey currently being undertaken on health and work in clinical care that will shape future provision of training and support for healthcare professionals.

To shape this programme, PHE is surveying all healthcare professionals regarding what support they need and want. We are keen that our profession is well represented in this important survey, so would be grateful if you could take the time to complete this short survey.. Please share your view on behalf of ...

We are again disappointed and frankly disgusted to see the leader of the medical center endorsing an inherently unhealthy, risky lifestyle. We remind you that this is offensive to members of the BIDMC who hold to moral principles and traditional values. But more to the point for a healthcare institution, is the fact that homosexual behavior involves well recognized higher risks of STDs, HIV and AIDS, anal cancer, hepatitis, parasitic intestinal infections, and psychiatric disorders. Life expectancy is significantly decreased as a result of HIV/AIDS, complications from the other health problems, and suicide. This alone should make it reprehensible to the medical community, regardless of your personal feelings for putting this on the politically correct list for "inclusion and respect." This action again jeopardizes the credibility of BIDMC as a healthcare institution and dishonors a large proportion of its community who continue to hold to the conviction that homosexuality is immoral, ungodly, ...
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning that illnesses and deaths from antibiotic resistance will rise in the US unless specific changes are made in the US public health system-and coupling the prediction with a blunt challenge to Congress to give it the money it needs to make the changes happen.. In a new report, published Tuesday afternoon, the CDC estimates that infections caused within healthcare institutions by the most problematic superbugs will rise by 10 percent over the next five years, from 310,000 to 340,000. (Those infections are a subset of the 2 million antibiotic-resistant infections that the CDC estimates occur each year in the United States.) That rise could be reversed, the agency said, if healthcare institutions could identify patients who carry dangerous bacteria with them as they check in and out of acute care hospitals, long-term care and rehab, and work together to keep their infections from being transported from one place to another.. The rest of the ...
So as we celebrate our bold vision and bright future, I am especially pleased that several critical undertakings come to fruition this fall. With the opening of the Surgery and Emergency Services Pavilion at UC Davis Medical Center, the welcoming of our first students at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing and the development of an updated strategic plan to guide us in our vision to improve health for all, UC Davis Health System is making exciting advances.. As the only academic health center in our region, we bring unique contributions: this is where the next generation of health-care professionals - physicians, nurses, other clinicians and researchers - learn the art and science of medicine and good health. This is where new therapies are discovered so that they may be applied at other health-care facilities around this region and around the globe. And this is where the latest, most sophisticated health care is delivered - services that are available only at an academic facility.. That is ...
Because TB medicine often causes nausea and loss of appetite, malnutrition is common among TB patients and can cause poor treatment adherence and prolonged illness. As in Nagayis case, treatment default also makes patients more susceptible to MDR-TB.. In response, the PEPFAR- and USAID-funded Track Tuberculosis Activity (TRACK TB) project, led by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) with partners, trained 100 Ugandan health workers from six regional reference hospitals to manage MDR-TB patients and effectively treat TB patients with nutritional deficiencies.. TRACK TB also advocates with the private sector for food, water, and financial donations to help support the patients. As a result of this advocacy, TRACK TB has raised 17,195,000 Ugandan shillings (over US $6,700) in food and cash donations to project-supported health facilities since July 2013. The donations of milk, water, and porridge help the patients stay hydrated and nourished so they can regain their strength and better adhere to ...

The FDA has obtained preliminary results from the SEAS trial. The trial tested whether lowering LDL-cholesterol with Vytorin would reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems in people with narrowing of the aorta, the bodys largest artery. The five-year trial did not show a reduced cardiovascular risk. But, according to the FDA, a "larger percentage of patients treated with Vytorin were diagnosed with and died from all types of cancer combined, when compared to treatment with a placebo." The FDA says patients can continue to take the drug. But the agency urged health-care professionals to monitor their patients for possible side effects and report them to the agency. While one recent clinical trial indicated higher rates of cancer for patients taking the drug, the FDA said two studies currently under way have shown no increased risk, according to an Associated Press report.. The FDA said it expects to receive a final study from the SEAS trial in about three months. It will then take an estimated ...

Availability of human resource is a critical factor for effective provision and delivery of quality health care to the growing needs of the growing global population. WHOs Global Atlas of Health Workforce (2010) recognised that the vast majority of states are facing a crisis in healthcare workforce due to increasing costs and demands, uneven distribution and skill imbalance. The private sector is emerging as a major partner in health systems at the primary, secondary and tertiary levels all over the world. Although the importance of training health professionals like medical officers, nurses, pharmacists and other paramedical staff providing basic health facilities at the grass root level cannot be overemphasised, the role of the private sector in the training of doctors and development of skills will be the focus of discussion here.

We analyze the economic consequences for less developed countries of investing in female health. In so doing we introduce a novel micro-founded dynamic general equilibrium framework in which parents trade off the number of children against investments in their education and in which we allow for health-related gender differences in productivity. We show that better female health speeds up the demographic transition and thereby the take-off toward sustained economic growth. By contrast, male health improvements delay the transition and the take-off because ceteris paribus they raise fertility. According to our results, investing in female health is therefore an important lever for development policies. However, and without having to assume anti-female bias, we also show that households pref ...

This report summarizes recommendations of the Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee (HICPAC) and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) concerning influenza vaccination of health-care personnel (HCP) in the United States. These recommendations apply to HCP in acute care hospitals, nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, physicians offices, urgent care centers, and outpatient clinics, and to persons who provide home health care and emergency medical services. The recommendations are targeted at health-care facility administrators, infection-control professionals, and occupational health professionals responsible for influenza vaccination programs and influenza infection-control programs in their institutions. HICPAC and ACIP recommend that all HCP be vaccinated annually against influenza. Facilities that employ HCP are strongly encouraged to provide vaccine to their staff by using evidence-based approaches that maximize vaccination rates- p. 1 ...
Background. Burnout is a psychological reaction triggered by interaction between personal characteristics and stress factors. Reorganizations and downsizing with increased workload imply stress for health-care professionals. This is a study of burnout in nurses during a period with two comprehensive reorganizations. Methods. In this quasi-experimental retrospective cohort study, burnout was assessed in nurses with long work experience in three surveys during a 30 months period with two comprehensive reorganizations and downsizing of a hospital unit with mostly seriously ill patients with cancer. Burnout was measured with Bergen Burnout Indicator (BBI) at each survey, and "Sense of Coherence" (SOC) with Antonovskys questionnaire at the last survey. Results. One man and 45 women aged 30 to 65 years were invited to the surveys. There was a significant increase in burnout during the study period, the mean increase in BBI-score was 12.5 pr year (p , 0.001). The proportion of satisfied nurses at the ...
As we approach the end of October many of us are reminded about seasonal influenza. There are many ways to avoid the flu and prevent its spread including covering your cough, frequent hand washing, staying home from school or work when sick, and getting the flu vaccine. Getting a flu shot not only reduces a persons chance of catching the flu, it also reduces the risk of spreading the flu to others. In addition, flu vaccination often decreases the severity of the flu if you do get sick resulting in less time spent home from work or school.. A recent CDC report reveals that 77.3 percent of surveyed healthcare personnel reported receiving the flu vaccine during the 2014-2015 flu season (up slightly from 75.2 percent in the 2013-2014 season). Many hospitals and health systems now require healthcare personnel (e.g., nurses, physicians) to get a seasonal flu vaccine. These policies are a way to increase healthcare personnel vaccination rates as evidenced by the same CDC survey showing that flu ...

Epidemiology and Risk Factors. Varicella is a highly infectious disease caused by primary infection with varicella-zoster virus (VZV). VZV is transmitted from person to person by direct contact, inhalation of aerosols from vesicular fluid of skin lesions of varicella or herpes zoster (HZ), a localized, generally painful vesicular rash commonly called shingles, or infected respiratory tract secretions that also might be aerosolized (266). The average incubation period is 14--16 days after exposure to rash (range: 10--21 days). Infected persons are contagious an estimated 1--2 days before rash onset until all lesions are crusted, typically 4--7 days after rash onset (266). Varicella secondary attack rates can reach 90% among susceptible contacts. Typically, primary infection with VZV results in lifetime immunity. VZV remains dormant in sensory-nerve ganglia and can reactivate at a later time, causing HZ. Before the U.S. childhood varicella vaccination program began in 1995, approximately 90% of ...
