Oral Hygiene - Good oral hygiene habits can make a difference in your smile and budget! Brush, floss, see your dentist regularly and use the right oral hygiene products.
Lots of kids dont like to brush and floss their teeth. You dont want to have to stand over your kids all the time just to ensure that they practice good oral hygiene. Whats the solution?. *Lead by example. Ensure that you yourself are practicing good oral hygiene. Let your kids see what you do to care for your teeth. You can even take your kids into your dentists exam room with you when you have your semi-annual exams: your kids can thus observe the absence of scariness, pain, etc.. *Talk with your kids about why oral hygiene is important. Show your kids videos about good oral hygiene, cavities, and dentist office visits.. *Buy oral care products that are kid-friendly: products that fit the size of your kids hands and mouths, products with your kids favorite cartoon characters or superheroes depicted on them, products that are glittery or are of your kids favorite color(s), enticingly flavored products, etc.. *Develop theme music for oral hygiene time.

The program consisted of 6 sessions, whose activities are designed to encourage participation and interest of children with ID. The results showed an improvement in oral hygiene habits. The implementation of programs to promote hygiene, appropriate activities designed with the cognitive level of the population favors the oral health status ...
No matter whether you are a physician (no matter your specialty) or an allied health professional, like it or not, the role of allied health professionals is growing.. From the medical doctor perspective, this brings an initial reaction of fear. From the paraprofessional perspective, this brings an initial reaction of opportunity. And from the hospital perspective, especially the hospital-with-"aligned"-providers perspective, this brings an initial reaction of the opportunity to play more competitors off of one another.. The latest tectonic event in this regard: A March 15, 2012, ruling of the California Court of Appeal, the states intermediary level court, that was of little surprise to legal scholars but of tremendous angst to the California Medical Association and the California Society of Anesthesologists, in which the court affirmed that California law does not require that CRNAs be supervised by physicians. In other words, unless ...
In paramedic courses, students divide their time between classroom (academic) coursework and clinical (hands-on) coursework in the field or in the hospital.

The clinical coursework in a paramedic course is usually conducted at a hospital or emergency clinic in an urban environment or in a rural clinic, since the range of experiences provided can help paramedic students learn quickly. Students who are studying paramedic science online or through other distance learning platforms are able to participate in clinical coursework at their own local hospitals and clinics. Also, the clinical coursework can usually be scheduled on a flexible basis in order to avoid interfering with work schedules.. Best of all, within the overall profession of paramedic ...

Downloadable! Skill shortages are often portrayed as a major problem for the economies of many countries including the Australian economy. Yet, there is surprisingly little evidence about their prevalence, causes and consequences. This paper attempts to improve our understanding about these issues by using econometric methods to analyse the Business Longitudinal Database, an Australian panel data-set with information about skill shortages in small- and medium-sized businesses during 2004/05. We use this information to: (1) explore the incidence of skill shortages and the business attributes that are associated with them; (2) identify which businesses face more complex skill shortages, as measured by the number of different causes reported simultaneously; and, uniquely, (3) examine how this complexity affects a business response to skill shortages and aspects of their subsequent performance. We show that complex skill shortages are more likely than simpler (single-cause) skill shortages to persist and
This is the first study to examine the experiences of allied health managers in the managing of and training for the staff that deliver weekend allied health services. It has revealed two major uncertainties faced by managers when providing weekend allied health services on acute medical and surgical wards: "Do the costs outweigh the benefits?" and "What type of service should be provided?" These uncertainties indicate there may be great variation in how these services are delivered in real life and in the actual cost-effectiveness of these real life programs. The challenges described by the participants in this study imply that running a sustainable and efficient weekend service is very difficult, given the problems with recruiting, training, rostering and retaining staff and the limitations to other service availability on the weekends.. A number of managers perceived benefits to both patients and the ...

Once a health (facility) has committed to providing this service, it is very difficult to remove. Trials like ours provide an evidence base that should have been created two decades ago before these services were implemented so broadly," Haines said.. As reported in PLoS Medicine, Haines and his colleagues conducted two trials over the course of about a year, involving almost 15,000 patients.. First, weekend allied health services were incrementally removed from 12 acute surgical or medical wards in two hospitals in Melbourne.. Next, researchers asked doctors, nurses and allied health staff to identify and prioritise the most important tasks for allied health services to provide on weekends. Based on those interviews, newly redeveloped services were reintroduced incrementally into the same wards.. The researchers found that removing allied ...
This systematic review identified 32 studies that investigated a variety of KT strategies to put research into practice in the allied health disciplines. This review complements the extant research on broad approaches to put research into practice in particular disciplines, such as nursing e.g.,[10],[11] and the reviews of specific KT strategies (e.g., audit and feedback, financial incentives) with a focus on medicine e.g.,[7-9]. Until now, reviews completed by Hakkennes and Dodd[19] and Menon et al.[20] provided the most comprehensive data on KT strategies in allied health; however, our review built on this existing research in several important ways. First, our review explored all types of interventions or approaches (i.e., a variety of professional and financial interventions) to put research into professional practice. Second, our review had a concise conceptualization of allied health that reflected ...

Compassion is a complex and multifaceted concept that has been explored from a range of cultural, philosophical, theological, and sociological perspectives. It can be considered a prerequisite for optimal health care, an expectation of the general public from their health care system, and a specific approach to care which should underpin the work of health care professionals globally. Given the nature of life-limiting illness and the challenges that shifting goals of care impose, the place of compassion as the underlying construct governing health care decisions would seem paramount. Yet there is an increasing concern-particularly in the UK media and recent reviews of clinical practices around end-of-life care-suggesting that somehow compassion has been lost as a governing principle of care giving. The reasons for this are not always clear, but increased clinical ...
Dozens of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) are published annually with the potential to improve the quality and safety of health care. However, failure to implement CPG recommendations has resulted in patients receiving care that is inappropriate, unnecessary, or even harmful [1-3]. Effective interventions are needed to address the barriers to change required for successful implementation of CPGs.. The most comprehensive systematic review to date identified small to moderate effects of most interventions to implement CPGs [4]. Despite some promising interventions, existing studies provide limited guidance on the factors that moderate the effects of these interventions in different settings, professional groups, and for different targeted behaviours. Consequently, we know little about how to formulate effective strategies for implementing CPGs. The use of theory has been advocated to inform intervention development with the potential to improve our ...
Increasingly, alternative therapies are becoming more common and well-known.

OBJECTIVES: To develop evidence based recommendations for the management of hand osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS: The multidisciplinary guideline development group comprised 16 rheumatologists, one physiatrist, one orthopaedic surgeon, two allied health professionals, and one evidence based medicine expert, representing 15 different European countries. Each participant contributed up to 10 propositions describing key clinical points for management of hand OA. Final recommendations were agreed using a Delphi consensus approach. A systematic search of Medline, Embase, CINAHL, Science Citation Index, AMED, Cochrane Library, HTA, and NICE reports was used to identify the best available research evidence to support each proposition. Where possible, the effect size and number needed to treat were calculated for efficacy. Relative risk or odds ratio was estimated for safety, and incremental cost effectiveness ratio was used for cost effectiveness. The strength of recommendation was ...
The issue of in-house credentialing has taken on added importance with more complex procedures and the recent emphasis on safety, especially in imaging and radiation oncology procedures. Medical Physicists have been categorized as Allied Health Professionals on most hospital and facility rosters with little more than proof of board certification as their chief credentialing statistic. Now, medical staff credentialing bodies have required more specific training in specialty procedures such as IMRT, SRS, SBRT, IGRT and specialized brachytherapy procedure like HDR, eye plaques, prostate seed implants, etc. Vendor training both on and off site for complex planning and treatment delivery systems like VMAT, RapidArc, TrueBeam, Tomotherapy and GammaKnife/ CyberKnife, to list but a few of the new technologies, are paramount in understanding the accurate and safe use of these systems. Societies offer guidelines and standards that may be useful in their applications and should be ...

Thank you for the opportunity to respond to Maxwell et als letter and their insightful comments regarding the delay to diagnosis in axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA). In their audit of patients with coexisting chronic back pain and acute anterior uveitis (AAU), it was noted that such patients are poorly evaluated for suspected SpA at primary-care level.1. Poor recognition and consequent late referral remains a major stumbling block towards overall success in axSpA. In our Dublin Uveitis Evaluation Tool (DUET) study, we also found that 62% of patients with undiagnosed SpA had previously consulted either their general practitioner (GP) or other allied health professionals with their backache but the diagnosis of SpA was not considered.2 The gatekeeper role of the GP cannot be underappreciated. However, variations in GP referral rates exist; indeed a 20-fold variation in GP referral rate has been reported.3 Clearly, the focus should be on efforts to increase the number of ...

"Contact dermatitis depends upon the musical instrument played and the sensitivity potential of the individual, but common allergens include metals (almost all media), exotic woods, cane reed (woodwind players), rosin (stringed instruments), shellac, ...
Dear Sirs, We have previously expressed concerns about the validity of the "clinical bottom line" published alongside the popular Best BETS. (1) Best BETS should be based on specific clinical scenarios and should aim to provide a clinical bottom line which indicates, in the light of the evidence, what the clinician would do if faced with the same scenario again. (2) The report by Olaussen and Williams serves to remind us, again, that unless Best BETS are rigorously conducted their conclusions may be highly inappropriate.(3) Olaussen and Williams wonder how different intraosseous (IO) access techniques and devices compared in the pre-hospital setting. Their review of the literature to May 2010 concluded that: "Traditional manual intraosseous infusion devices have better success rates and faster insertion times compared with semi-automatic intraosseous infusion devices in the prehospital setting". Evidence based medicine is the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in ...
Alaska law provides that hepatitis B vaccine be made reasonably accessible at no charge to all volunteer emergency medical and rescue personnel in the state who provide an emergency medical or rescue service primarily within an unincorporated community or within a municipality that does not provide funding for the emergency medical service.

Once medically stable, people may be transferred to a subacute rehabilitation unit of the medical center or to an independent rehabilitation hospital.[84] Rehabilitation aims to improve independent function at home and in society and to help adapt to disabilities [84] and has demonstrated its general effectiveness, when conducted by a team of health professionals who specialise in head trauma.[101] As for any person with neurologic deficits, a multidisciplinary approach is key to optimising outcome. Physiatrists or neurologists are likely to be the key medical staff involved, but depending on the person, doctors of other medical specialties may also be helpful. Allied health professions such as physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, cognitive rehabilitation therapy, and occupational therapy will be essential to assess function and design the rehabilitation activities for each person. Treatment of neuropsychiatric symptoms such as ...

The trial could lead to physiotherapists offering new treatment options for pelvic organ prolapse. The condition, affecting about 40 per cent of women over 40, occurs when the bladder, bowel or womb descend into the vagina, causing distressing symptoms.. Many women initially choose to be fitted with a pessary inserted into the vagina to support the pelvic organs. The procedure is usually carried out at a gynaecology clinic or GP surgery. Patients return approximately every six months to have the pessary replaced.. The trial, involving 330 women, will examine whether women could remove and reinsert their pessary themselves at home. This could offer them more control over maintaining and improving their own health.. It will also explore whether self-management is more, or less, expensive than standard practice.. The trial involves the nursing, midwifery and allied health professions research unit at Glasgow Caledonian University and St Marys ...
Anton Simorov, MD, Chung-Kai Huang, MS, Dmitry Oleynikov, MD, FACS, Ka-Chun Siu, PhD. Department of Surgery, Center for Advanced Surgical Technology, School of Allied Health Professions, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE, USA.. Introduction: Most advanced laparoscopic procedures nowadays require the surgeon to operate with both hands with a high level of performance. Particularly, common laparoscopic procedures, such as Nissen fundoplication, demand a thorough and precise work with surgeons non-dominant hand. The purpose of this study was to investigate the level of muscle exertion, errors and performance of dominant and non-dominant hands from subjects with different laparoscopic experience. Our hypothesis was that hand dominance did matter while performing a novel laparoscopic task.. Methods and Procedures: Six healthy participants (3 medical fellows, all right-hand dominant) were recruited to perform a novel laparoscopic ...
Neurology is the medical discipline dealing with neurological disorders (disorders of the nervous system). To be specific, neurology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease and disorders involving the central and peripheral nervous system, as well as related symptoms (e.g., back pain), signs (e.g., aphasia), and syndromes (e.g., Aicardi syndrome). The term neurology was once used in a synonymous way with the current definition of neuroscience. For example, MaGills Medical Guide (2008) defines neurology as "the study of the nervous system" and "the study of the structure and function of the nervous system" (Hollar 2008). However, today neurology is limited to the medical specialty dealing with disorders and diseases of the nervous system. As such, it can be seen as a branch of neuroscience. It also can be seen as part of clinical neuroscience, along with psychiatry and many allied health professions such as speech-language pathology. Psychiatry is ...
Dead on arrival (DOA), also dead in the field and brought in dead (BID), is a term used to indicate that a patient was found to be already clinically dead upon the arrival of professional medical assistance, often in the form of first responders such as emergency medical technicians, paramedics, or police. In some jurisdictions, first responders must consult verbally with a physician before officially pronouncing a patient deceased, but once cardiopulmonary resuscitation is initiated, it must be continued until a physician can pronounce the patient dead. When presented with a patient, medical professionals are required to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) unless specific conditions are met which allow them to pronounce the patient as deceased. In most places, these are examples of such criteria: Injuries not compatible with life. These include but are not necessarily limited to decapitation or other catastrophic brain trauma, incineration, severed body, and injuries that do not permit ...
A 16-year-old boy received an award at the House of Commons on Friday (3 May) for his quick thinking in helping staff from the London Ambulance Service to resuscitate a man whose heart had stopped beating.. Aron Wimsett, from Bexleyheath, was honoured in the Ambulance Service Institute Public Spirited Awards 2007, hosted by Jacqui Lait MP, for his help when an 84-year-old man suffered a cardiac arrest outside his home.. Aron, who had received first-aid training as a cadet in the Air Training Corps, immediately assessed that the patients heart had stopped beating, asked his mother to dial 999 for an ambulance and began to give him cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR).. Paramedic Daniel Barnwall, who travelled to the patient in a fast-response car, said: "I arrived to find Aron in full control of the situation. He was giving CPR to good effect and had even laid a blanket on the pavement to stop the patient from getting wet.". Daniel and an ambulance crew gave the patients heart four shocks with ...

The Minister of State for Primary Care Róisín Shorthall has failed to provide any answers on the ongoing impasse over permanent accommodation for Edenderry Ambulance Service. She was questioned by Offaly Fianna Fáil TD Barry Cowen, who raised a special Dáil debate on the matter this week (Thursday, 23 February). Deputy Cowen said: "The temporary accommodation for the ambulance services in Edenderry is totally unacceptable and simply does not meet the standards required. It is crucial that permanent facilities are found immediately.. "Edenderry Ambulance service has been seeking a permanent ambulance bay for a long number of years. After numerous representations the bay was received two years ago, by providing accommodation in what used to be the Matrons living quarters in Ofalia House. This consists of 1 room, a storage unit and one toilet to be used by male and female ambulance staff. These facilities are totally inadequate. Where an ambulance needs to be cleaned after a call, it must be ...

0011] The semi-rigid compression splint for trauma is a new device that combines the in-field simplicity of use, non-invasiveness and access to the fracture site that is lacking in the conventional fracture treatment technologies. It is an inexpensive, completely non-invasive, rapidly-applied splint that will provide reduction of long bone fractures or pelvic compression and stabilization at the sacro-iliac joint and the pubic symphysis. No specialized training is required to apply the splint, and can be applied during pre-hospital stabilization at an accident scene, for example, by emergency medical technicians (EMT) of an emergency medical services (EMS) or other first responders, such as fire and police personnel. The present invention can be applied in an emergency department (ED), operating room (OR) or intensive care unit (ICU) setting as well. Even when applied and fully engaged, the splint allows visualization of the injured limb and in the case of the fractured pelvis access to the ...
OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the setting of priorities and patients need for the ambulance service. METHODS: A prospective, consecutive study was conducted during a 6-week period. The ambulance staff completed a questionnaire assessing each patients need for prehospital care. In addition to the questionnaire, data were extracted from the ambulance medical records for each case. RESULTS: The study included 1977 ambulance assignments. The results show that there is a substantial safety margin in the priority assessments made by the emergency medical dispatch operators, where the ambulance staff support the safety margin for initial priorities, despite the lack of at-the-scene confirmation. At-the-scene assessments indicated that 10% of all patients had potentially life-threatening conditions or no signs of life, but the advanced life support units were not systematically involved in these serious cases. The results even showed that one-third of the patients for whom an ambulance was assigned did not ...

Fisher Smith was interviewed by Jordanne Laurito, a journalist and freelance photo editor for The New York Times who is working on her bachelors degree at the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications.. Jordan Fisher Smith was 21 years old when he realized he wanted to be a wilderness ranger. Three years later, he found himself fighting fires in the Northern Rockies.. "The thing about fighting fires is, when youre with a fire crew, they put you on an airplane, fly you someplace, feed you, put you on a bus, you go to a fire, then another fire - one thing you never see is your paycheck. I would get off work when the snow flew in the fall, and feel incredibly wealthy," he said. "Then I would go skiing.". He shifted from job to job, looking for "the ultimate ranger job," and did everything from guided wildflower walks to criminal investigation, Emergency Medical Technician training to riding airplanes in Alaska. Finally, his 21-year career in the wilderness came to an end due ...
