Effect of discussion and deliberation on the public's views of priority setting in health care: focus group study. (1/868)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the extent to which people change their views about priority setting in health care as a result of discussion and deliberation. DESIGN: A random sample of patients from two urban general practices was invited to attend two focus group meetings, a fortnight apart. SETTING: North Yorkshire Health Authority. SUBJECTS: 60 randomly chosen patients meeting in 10 groups of five to seven people. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Differences between people's views at the start of the first meeting and at the end of the second meeting, after they have had an opportunity for discussion and deliberation, measured by questionnaires at the start of the first meeting and the end of the second meeting. RESULTS: Respondents became more reticent about the role that their views should play in determining priorities and more sympathetic to the role that healthcare managers play. About a half of respondents initially wanted to give lower priority to smokers, heavy drinkers, and illegal drug users, but after discussion many no longer wished to discriminate against these people. CONCLUSION: The public's views about setting priorities in health care are systematically different when they have been given an opportunity to discuss the issues. If the considered opinions of the general public are required, surveys that do not allow respondents time or opportunity for reflection may be of doubtful value.  (+info)

Diabetes care: who are the experts? (2/868)

OBJECTIVES: To identify issues that patients and professionals consider important in diabetes care and differences in their priorities for care and to determine patients' and professionals' judgements of the relative importance of their chosen priorities. DESIGN: Structured group interviews using the nominal group technique. SETTING: Five district health authorities on Tyneside. SUBJECTS: Five nominal groups: expert (seven), non-expert (seven) health care professionals; insulin dependent (four), non-insulin dependent patients (eight); and carers of diabetic patients (eight). MAIN MEASURES: Items important in diabetes care to each nominal group (themes of care), ranked into a series of "top 10" items for each group, and allocated a score according to relative importance to individual members; scores were standardised by individual weighting and group weighting for comparison within and between groups. RESULTS: Patients and professionals agreed that information given to patients, interaction between professionals and patients, patient autonomy, and access were important for good diabetes care, but the importance assigned to each differed. Thus the professionals emphasised empathy and aspects of good communication and patients the desire to know enough to live a "normal" life. Differences were also found within the patient groups; these related to changes in patients' needs at specific points in the development of their illness and in their orientations to care. CONCLUSION: Patients differ from professionals in their orientation to diabetes care, and they can, and should, be involved in setting priorities for care. Since these priorities are dynamic further work is needed to explore the nature of patient satisfaction with diabetes care.  (+info)

Policy priorities in diabetes care: a Delphi study. (3/868)

OBJECTIVES: To produce policy priorities for improving care of diabetes based on the findings of original research into patient and professional opinions of diabetes care in South Tyneside. To judge the feasibility of implementing these priorities as policy. DESIGN: A two round Delphi survey with a panel of 28 inverted question markexperts. inverted question mark In the first round each respondent produced a list of recommendations based on the findings of a report of patients' and professionals' opinions of diabetes care. 20 respondents produced a total of 180 recommendations, reviewed by a monitoring panel to produce a summary list of 28 recommendations. In the second round respondents rated each recommendation on two 5 point Likert scales. SETTING: Mainly Tyneside but also other parts of England. SUBJECTS: 28 healthcare professionals, including patients and patients' representatives. MAIN MEASURES: Voting by experts on how important each recommendation was to improving diabetes care service, and how likely the recommendation was to be implemented in the next five years. RESULTS: There was a high degree of consensus among respondents about recommendations considered important and likely to be implemented--namely, those concerned with improving communications between doctors in hospital and in general practice, and improving communications with patients. Respondents were more pessimistic about the prospects of implementing the recommendations than about their importance. Respondents thought that standards were important for improving care, and half would stop payments to general practice diabetic clinics that did not keep to district standards for diabetes care. For two recommendations a mismatch occurred between the importance of the recommendations and likelihood of implementation. This may reflect the practical problems of implementing recommendations. 18 of the 22 respondents thought that the study was useful in generating recommendations. CONCLUSIONS: The Delphi technique is a useful method for determining priorities for diabetes care and in assessing the feasibility of implementing recommendations.  (+info)

Breastfeeding promotion and priority setting in health. (4/868)

An increase in exclusive breastfeeding prevalence can substantially reduce mortality and morbidity among infants. In this paper, estimates of the costs and impacts of three breastfeeding promotion programmes, implemented through maternity services in Brazil, Honduras and Mexico, are used to develop cost-effectiveness measures and these are compared with other health interventions. The results show that breastfeeding promotion can be one of the most cost-effective health interventions for preventing cases of diarrhoea, preventing deaths from diarrhoea, and gaining disability-adjusted life years (DALYs). The benefits are substantial over a broad range of programme types. Programmes starting with the removal of formula and medications during delivery are likely to derive a high level of impact per unit of net incremental cost. Cost-effectiveness is lower (but still attractive relative to other interventions) if hospitals already have rooming-in and no bottle-feeds; and the cost-effectiveness improves as programmes become well-established. At an annual cost of about 30 to 40 US cents per birth, programmes starting with formula feeding in nurseries and maternity wards can reduce diarrhoea cases for approximately $0.65 to $1.10 per case prevented, diarrhoea deaths for $100 to $200 per death averted, and reduce the burden of disease for approximately $2 to $4 per DALY. Maternity services that have already eliminated formula can, by investing from $2 to $3 per birth, prevent diarrhoea cases and deaths for $3.50 to $6.75 per case, and $550 to $800 per death respectively, with DALYs gained at $12 to $19 each.  (+info)

Promoting audit in primary care: roles and relationships of medical audit advisory groups and their managers. (5/868)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate perceptions of family health service authorities and medical audit advisory groups of advisory groups' involvement in clinical audit and wider quality issues; communication with the authorities; and manager satisfaction. DESIGN: National postal questionnaire survey in 1994. SETTING: All family health services authority districts in England and Wales. SUBJECTS: Chief executives or other responsible authority officers and advisory group chairpersons in each district. MAIN MEASURES: Priorities of advisory group and authority for audit; involvement of advisory group in wider quality issues; communication of information to, and contacts with, the authority and its involvement in planning the future work of the advisory group; and authorities' satisfaction. RESULTS: Both groups' views about audit were similar and broadly consistent with current policy. Advisory group involvement in wider quality issues was extensive, and the majority of both groups thought this appropriate. Much of the information about their activities collected by advisory groups was not passed on to the authority. The most frequent contact between the two groups was the advisory group's annual report, but formal personal contact was the most valued. Most authority respondents thought their views had been recognised in the advisory group's planning of future work; only a small minority were not satisfied with their advisory groups. Dissatisfied respondents received less information from their advisory groups, had less contact with them, and thought they had less input into their plans. There was some evidence that advisory groups in the "dissatisfied districts" were less involved in clinical audit and with their authorities in wider quality issues. CONCLUSIONS: Most advisory groups are developing their activities in clinical audit and have expanded their scope of work. The quality and availability of information about progress with audit is a cause for concern to both groups.  (+info)

Developing a plan for primary health care facilities in Soweto, South Africa. Part II: Applying locational criteria. (6/868)

This article is the second of a two-part series describing the development of a ten-year plan for primary health care facility development in Soweto. The first article concentrated on the political problems and general methodological approach of the project. This second article describes how the technical problem of planning in the context of scanty information was overcome. The reasoning behind the various assumptions and criteria which were used to assist the planning of the location of facilities is explained, as well as the process by which they were applied. The merits and limitations of this planning approach are discussed, and it is suggested that the approach may be useful to other facility planners, particularly in the developing world.  (+info)

Gender and equity in health sector reform programmes: a review. (7/868)

This paper reviews current literature and debates about Health Sector Reform (HSR) in developing countries in the context of its possible implications for women's health and for gender equity. It points out that gender is a significant marker of social and economic vulnerability which is manifest in inequalities of access to health care and in women's and men's different positioning as users and producers of health care. Any analysis of equity must therefore include a consideration of gender issues. Two main approaches to thinking about gender issues in health care are distinguished--a 'women's health' approach, and a 'gender inequality' approach. The framework developed by Cassels (1995), highlighting six main components of HSR, is used to try to pinpoint the implications of HSR in relation to both of these approaches. This review makes no claim to sociological or geographical comprehensiveness. It attempts instead to provide an analysis of the gender and women's health issues most likely to be associated with each of the major elements of HSR and to outline an agenda for further research. It points out that there is a severe paucity of information on the actual impact of HSR from a gender point of view and in relation to substantive forms of vulnerability (e.g. particular categories of women, specific age groups). The use of generic categories, such as 'the poor' or 'very poor', leads to insufficient disaggregation of the impact of changes in the terms on which health care is provided. This suggests the need for more carefully focused data collection and empirical research.  (+info)

Opening the debate on DALYs (disability-adjusted life years). (8/868)

The 1993 World Development Report is proving to be an influential document for the development of the health sector policies in developing countries. One important aspect of the Report concerns its proposals for Disability Adjusted Life Years as a measure of health change and hence effectiveness of interventions. This article comments on the use of such measures in the health policy arena.  (+info)

Community health needs assessments often result in identification of a substantial number of service gaps and health care problems. Financial and other resource limitations demand that we set priorities among assessed community health needs in order to focus resources on where they will do the most good and be most effective. This program, led by public health professor Leslie Beitsch, described established methods and tools for setting priorities for community health improvement. In this webinar, the presenter discusses what, who, why, and when to prioritize. He also offers information concerning different priority-setting methods inclucing dotmocracy, nominal group planning, strategy map, simplex method, hanlon method, criteria weighting and prioritization matrix. As a result of this webinar participants are able to use information from community health needs assessments to determine priorities, engage community members and organizational leaders in setting priorities, and select criteria ...
The decision to develop a NICE guideline or quality standard on a particular health, public health or social care topic is influenced by a number of factors.. Generally, the topics selected come either from libraries of quality standard topics already referred to NICE, or from updates of previously published guidelines.. The focus on topic selection at NICE therefore is largely on prioritising existing topics. Alongside this portfolio of topics, NICEs commissioners(NHS England and the Department of Health) are likely to continue to identify a small number of new topics, which will have to be similarly prioritised.. On this page the approach to prioritising referred topics for guidelines and quality standards is set out, along with the mechanism for agreeing any additional new topics. The core elements of this process will be included in the new unified guideline manual.. This process applies only to guidelines for public health, social care and clinical topics, not to NICE guidance on new ...
This project report is the product of an extensive survey and analysis by Swedens National Centre for Priority Setting in Health Care. The project was commissioned by the National Board of Health and Welfare, which shall report to the Swedish Government on the priority setting activities of local governments (eg, county councils and municipalities) and assess how well they comply with the intent of Swedens Health and Medical Services Act and the Riksdags (Swedish parliament) resolutions on priority setting. We were also assigned to analyse problems in applying the guidelines on priority setting and to propose changes and clarification.. The National Centre for Priority Setting in Health Care has been engaged in the complexities of prioritisation issues for many years. We welcomed the Governments initiative and gladly accepted this assignment. Our ambition has been to describe the situation throughout Sweden from multiple perspectives.

What is priority setting for research on LF?. Priority setting for future research attempts to list all research questions which doctors, paramedical workers, therapists and scientists feel important in their routine practice. Priority setting meetings also invite patients to participate in the discussion. Patients have tried several treatments for long and they are able to judge the benefits of these treatments. They have thoughts on which treatments should be evaluated or modified. Anyone interested in morbidity control of LF or Integrative Medicine can participate. Your ideas and experiences either based on pilot observations or gut feelings are important for research priority setting. You should log in to the website and submit your ideas. If you wish to know more about priority setting workshops please read James Lind Alliance guidebook.. How can you participate in priority setting workshop during the 6th National Colloquium? There is no separate registration fee for priority setting ...
Health systems have experienced unprecedented stress in recent years, and as yet no consensus has emerged as to how to deal with the multiple burden of disease in the context of HIV and AIDS and other competing health priorities. Priority setting is essential, yet this is a complex, multifaceted process. Drawing on a study conducted in five African countries, this paper explores different stakeholders′ perceptions of health priorities, how priorities are defined in practice, the process of resource allocation for HIV and Health and how different stakeholders perceive this. A sub-analysis was conducted of selected data from a wider qualitative study that explored the interactions between health systems and HIV and AIDS responses in five sub-Saharan countries (Burkina Faso, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Madagascar and Malawi). Key background documents were analysed and semi-structured interviews (n = 258) and focus group discussions (n = 45) were held with representatives of communities,
Local healthcare officials accepted the challenge of identifying the top health priorities for residents in Sampson County, and have started to lay out the framework for plans to address these concerns.. Over the past year, the Sampson County Health Department and Healthy Carolinians have been gathering data through the Community Health Assessment and have made a recommendation to the Board of Health and county commissioners as to what the top health priorities are for Sampson County.. According to Luke Smith, health educator with the Health Department, based on surveys and data, the top three health priorities for Sampson County are substance abuse, STDs/sexual activity/pregnancy prevention and chronic disease.. Over the course of the next three years, the Health Department will work to address these problems.. The Community Health Assessment, referred to as the CHA, is the foundation for improving and promoting the health of county residents, Smith explained. It is a fundamental tool of ...
Aims Research priorities are often set by academic researchers or the pharmaceutical industry. The interests of patients, carers and clinicians may therefore be overlooked and research questions that matter may be neglected. The aims of this study were to collect uncertainties about the treatment of Type1 diabetes from patients, carers and health professionals, and to collate and prioritize these uncertainties to develop a top 10 list of research priorities, using a structured priority-setting partnership of patients, carers, health professionals and diabetes organizations, as described by the James Lind Alliance. Methods A partnership of interested organizations was set up, and from this a steering committee of 10 individuals was formed. An online and paper survey was used to identify uncertainties. These were collated, and the steering group carried out an interim priority-setting exercise with partner organizations. This group of uncertainties was then voted on to give a smaller list that went

Vascular Priority Setting Partnership A national survey has been launched by the Vascular Priority Setting Partnership and the James Lind Alliance, to identify the top 10 research priorities for Vascular in the UK.
OBJECTIVE: To determine research priorities for the management of broken bones of the upper limb in people over 50, which represent the shared priorities of patients, their families, carers and healthcare professionals. DESIGN/SETTING: A national (UK) research priority setting partnership. PARTICIPANTS: People aged 50 and over who have experienced a fracture of the upper limb, carers involved in their care, family and friends of patients, healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of these patients. METHODS: Using a multiphase methodology in partnership with the James Lind Alliance over 15 months (September 2017 to December 2018), a national scoping survey asked respondents to submit their research uncertainties. These were amalgamated into a smaller number of research questions. The existing evidence was searched to ensure that the questions had not already been answered. A second national survey asked respondents to prioritise the research questions. A final shortlist of 25 questions was taken

Experience indicates that while it may be relatively easy to achieve the initial task of formulating a national policy and programme of action, the next step of ensuring that intentions are translated into practice is more difficult. Projects working directly with children, families, employers and communities, or those that aim at strengthening the capacity of organizations to improve their service delivery to children and families, can provide that link. Action against child labour is relatively recent, and experimental smaller-scale projects are needed to demonstrate in practice that the situation of children can be improved and that they can be removed from hazardous work. Thus, projects provide a basis for wider application and adjustments in programmes and policies dealing with the problem. This type of intervention - whether it is called pilot projects, action programmes, or sub-projects - should, however, never be carried out in isolation. It should always be part of a broader programme ...
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Food composition databases are necessary for assessing dietary intakes. Developing and maintaining a high quality database is difficult because of the high cost of analyzing nutrient profiles and the recent fast-changing food marketplace. Thus, priorities have to be set for developing and updating the database. We aimed to identify key foods in the Korean diet to set priorities for future analysis of foods. SUBJECTS/METHODS: The food consumption data of the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys 2013-2014 were used. We modified the US Department of Agricultures key food approach. First, major foods were analyzed, contributing to 75%, 80%, 85%, or 90% of each nutrient intake. Second, the cumulative contributions to nutrient intakes were compared before and after excluding the foods least commonly consumed by individuals. Third, total nutrient score for each food was calculated by summing all percent contributions times 100 for nutrients. To set priorities ...
Understanding pain as a public health priority helps to explain its tight linkage with social and economic determinants of health. The social epidemiologic evidence suggests strongly that patterns of NCDs from the hyperlocal to the global level are powerfully determined by the conditions in which people and communities live, work, and play [23]. Given the aforementioned comorbid relationship between a variety of NCDs and chronic pain, one would predict that chronic pain should correlate with some of these social determinants of health. This prediction is borne out in research that links with chronic pain a number of such determinants, including mental and physical stress at work, [24, 25] socioeconomic status, [26] rurality,[27] occupational status, [28] neighborhood, [29] race, [29, 30] and education [31].. One of the most promising theories regarding the causal pathways between such social factors and poor NCD and all-cause health outcomes is the allostatic load hypothesis [32, 33]. This ...
For a number of reasons, this kind of fragmented approach to protecting the environment will not be as successful in the future as it has been in the past. In this country the most obvious controls already have been applied to the most obvious problems. Yet complex and less obvious environmental problems remain, and the aggregate cost of controlling those problems one-by-one is rising.. Moreover, this country--and the rest of the world--are facing emerging environmental problems of unprecedented scope. Population growth and industrial expansion worldwide are straining global ecosystems. Never before in history have human activities threatened to change atmospheric chemistry to such an extent that global climate patterns were altered.. Given the diversity, complexity, and scope of the environmental problems of concern today, it is critically important that U.S. environmental policy evolves in several fundamental ways. Essentially, national policy affecting the environment must become more ...

Watch the Video: Childhood Cancer Should Be Top Childhood Research Priority ]. Lee Rannals for - Your Universe Online. According to a new poll by the University of Michigan on Childrens Health, childhood cancer should be a top priority for childrens health researchers.. The new poll found that 76 percent of adults rated research into childhood cancers as very important, which was followed by diabetes at 70 percent. Birth defects and other genetic problems received a respectable 68 percent in the poll.. So many people know a child or family touched by childhood cancer, Matthew M. Davis, MD, MAPP, director of the C.S. Mott Childrens Hospital National Poll on Childrens Health, said in a statement. It remains a leading killer of children under 18 in the United States. The public clearly ranks research into cures and treatments for these often deadly cancers as a top priority..

Priorities. 6.1 We emphasised in Chapter 2 that the demand for health care is always likely to outstrip supply and that the capacity of health services to absorb resources is almost unlimited. Choices have therefore to be made about the use of available funds and priorities have to be set. The more pressure there is on resources, the more important it is to get the priorities clear; and the more difficult the choices are, the more important it is, in our view, that the ways in which they are reached are generally known and susceptible to public influence. In this chapter we consider how priorities are set in the NHS, and go on to discuss some of the current preferences.. 6.2 The DHSS Consultative Document on priorities for health and personal social services in England begins by saying:.

In recent years, Precision Cancer Medicine has developed from a mere buzz word into a framework for clinical decision-making at several comprehensive cancer centres world-wide. On the one hand, cost-effective targeted sequencing approaches are used to assess the ever-increasing number of known cancer drivers often prospectively within clinical trials. On the other hand, genome-wide analyses (i.e. exome sequencing) help to unveil this increasing list, mainly through retrospective comparisons. As more and more data are generated, clinical utility increases, but so does the complexity in data analysis.. A number of web applications have been developed to facilitate interactive prioritisation of variants (Additional file 1: Table S1).

Results To date, 142 subjects took the online survey with 123 completing it: 44% (n = 63) male and 56% (n = 79) female. Most subjects were from Oceana (35%) followed by Europe (18%), America (18%), Africa (15%) and Asia (14%). The majority (59%) of participants were from developed countries. Unreliability (17%) was the greatest barrier for use of POCTs, followed by being laboratory-driven (15%) and time- frame (13%). Perceptions of STI POCT differed significantly between developing and developed country participants. The majority (85%) of participants from developing countries thought test cost was more important versus 67% from developed countries (p , 0.05). Participants from developing countries ranked early HIV seroconversion as top priority for new STI POCT while those from developed countries chose chlamydia. Only 24% from developing countries preferred to prioritise the development of chlamydia POCT as compared to 57% from developed countries.(p value?) In addition, the majority (53%) of ...

Around 40% of English councils are scaling back budgets or recommissioning stop smoking services since public health transferred to local government in 2013, Cancer Research UK has found.. In the second report of its kind, the organisation found that two in every five areas are cutting back funding across the 126 local authorities engaged in stop smoking programmes.. Half of all services are also being reconfigured or recommissioned, suggesting high levels of change across the country.. The study follows on from the findings of the bodys first report, which covered the first year since tobacco control had migrated to councils from primary care trusts. At the time, while responses were generally positive, councils already flagged significant concerns over future cuts..

  • A drawback of employer-based health coverage is that workers with existing medical conditions who are covered by such plans would be discouraged from changing jobs because their condition may discourage companies from taking them on. (
  • The advantage of employer-based medical insurance to employees who remain with the same employer for many years is that they effectively have long-term medical coverage against serious health problems that could arise in the future. (
