Experiences and attitudes of residents and students influence voluntary service with homeless populations. (1/732)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of two programs at the University of Pittsburgh, one that requires and one that encourages volunteer activity. In the program that requires primary care interns to spend 15 hours in a homeless clinic, we measured volunteer service after the requirement was fulfilled. In the program that encourages and provides the structure for first- and second-year medical students to volunteer, we assessed correlates of volunteering. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: When primary care interns were required to spend time at homeless clinics, all (13/13) volunteered to work at the same clinic in subsequent years. Categorical interns without this requirement were less likely to volunteer (24/51; chi2 = 12.7, p >. 001). Medical students who volunteered were more likely to be first-year students, have previously volunteered in a similar setting, have positive attitudes toward caring for indigent patients, and have fewer factors that discouraged them from volunteering (p <. 01 for all) than students who did not volunteer. CONCLUSIONS: Volunteering with underserved communities during medical school and residency is influenced by previous experiences and, among medical students, year in school. Medical schools and residency programs have the opportunity to promote volunteerism and social responsibility through mentoring and curricular initiatives.  (+info)

Breast cancer screening in underserved women in the Bronx. (2/732)

This article reports the results of mammography screening among socioeconomically disadvantaged women in Bronx, NY using a federally funded low-cost or no-cost cancer screening service. The New York State Department of Health provided funds for the uninsured through the Bronx Breast Health Partnership. All women < or = 40 years underwent screening mammography using both a mobile van unit and hospital-based mammographic x-ray unit, both American College of Radiology (ACR) accredited. Return visits were coordinated by a follow-up clinic at Montefiore Medical Center using a patient navigator who acted as an advocate for patients with abnormal screening findings. The overall detection rate of 12.9 per 1000 women screened was significantly higher than the New York State detection rate of 6 per 1000 and 5.1 per 1000 nationally. Availability of a patient navigator was an essential factor in the effectiveness of the work-up of problem cases. Low-cost or no-cost breast cancer screening programs can improve the availability, accessibility, acceptability, and utilization of mammography among underserved and uninsured women who are least likely to be screened otherwise.  (+info)

Teleradiology: technology and practice. (3/732)

Teleradiology increases the ability of radiologists to provide service to remote and underserved locations as well as coverage at times when direct reading of images is not possible. Good practices for teleradiology are described in the American College of Radiology (ACR) teleradiology standard. Teleradiology equipment is converging with picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) equipment so that diagnostic interpretation from remote locations is possible. Image capture can be directly from digital modalities or by film scanner. Transmission speed is still an issue. High transmission speeds were difficult to achieve but recent improvements may increase speeds and decrease costs.  (+info)

HRSA's Models That Work Program: implications for improving access to primary health care. (4/732)

The main objective of the Models That Work Campaign (MTW) is improving access to health care for vulnerable and underserved populations. A collaboration between the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) at the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and 39 cosponsors--among them national associations, state and federal agencies, community-based organizations, foundations, and businesses--this initiative gives recognition and visibility to innovative and effective service delivery models. Models are selected based on a set of criteria that includes delivery of high quality primary care services, community participation, integration of health and social services, quantifiable outcomes, and replicability. Winners of the competition are showcased nationally and hired to provide training to other communities, to document and publish their strategies, and to provide onsite technical assistance on request.  (+info)

International and US medical graduates in US cities. (5/732)

OBJECTIVES: This study examines the comparative distributions of postresident international medical graduates (IMGs) and US medical graduates (USMGs) in high and low poverty areas of US cities. Existing research has established that IMGs are more likely than USMGs to practice in urban areas, yet there is the question whether IMGs locate more frequently than USMGs in urban poverty areas. METHODS: Data from the 1997 AMA Physician Masterfile and 1990 US Census were merged to classify physicians' practices into low- and high-poverty areas in selected cities. RESULTS: In 14 cities with populations of 2.5 million or more, IMGs were located in a statistically significant disproportion in poverty areas of 7 cities. Of 36 cities with populations of 1,000,000 to 2,499,999, there were 5 cities that had significant IMG disproportions in poverty areas. Of a random sample of 27 cities with populations of 250,000 to 999,999, there were 2 cities that had significant IMG disproportions. Many cities in all three size categories had a large proportionate IMG complement of the total physician workforce located within high-poverty areas. CONCLUSIONS: IMGs were found in disproportionate numbers in poverty areas in a number of US cities, especially the very largest ones. These findings are discussed in light of the current debate about a physician surplus and initiatives to reduce the number of IMGs in residency training.  (+info)

Program for licensure for international medical graduates in British Columbia: 7 years' experience. (6/732)

British Columbia has funded a program for licensure for international medical graduates since 1992, providing 2 entry positions per year for postgraduate training. Each year 25-35 candidates are eligible for the program, 13-16 enter the evaluation process, 4 go on to a clinical evaluation and 2 are offered funding by the Ministry of Health. Other candidates may access community funding if they meet the requirements of the program. Twenty of 26 candidates have successfully completed the postgraduate training and achieved full licensure; 6 are still in training. In this article we describe the development of the program, the evaluation and selection process, characteristics of the candidates and the outcomes of the program.  (+info)

Information quality in a remote rural maternity unit in Ghana. (7/732)

The collection of accurate maternal outcome data enables causes of morbidity and mortality to be identified, which in turn permits interventions to be targeted appropriately. It also allows estimates to be made about the importance of various indicators in predicting birth outcome. These indicators can then be compared between health services, across time and against programme objectives, thus ensuring a management information system that informs policy and provides for real change. A review was done of data collection at the antenatal clinic and maternity ward in a remote rural hospital in northern Ghana. The data collected came from maternity ward records and participant observation, and they highlight deficiencies in the record management procedures. It is argued that exhorting staff to greater accuracy, although obvious, may not be the only solution, because of the structural impediments that often give an illusion of accuracy. The best data need to be collected within the constraints of the equipment and the people. Furthermore, to make the task more meaningful, regular feedback needs to be provided so that the process of record keeping is relevant to those who do it. Ministries of health need to conduct regular audits, like this microanalysis, so that policies are not based on data that are analyzed under a presumption of accuracy.  (+info)

Contributions of general internal medicine teaching units: a national survey. (8/732)

OBJECTIVE: To identify and describe general internal medicine teaching units and their educational activities. DESIGN: A cross-sectional mailed survey of heads of general internal medicine teaching units affiliated with U.S. internal medicine training programs who responded between December 1996 and December 1997. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Responses were received from 249 (61%) of 409 eligible programs. Responding and nonresponding programs were similar in terms of university affiliation, geographic region, and size of residency program. Fifty percent of faculty received no funding from teaching units, 37% received full-time (50% or more time), and 13% received part-time (under 50% time) funding from units. Only 23% of faculty were primarily located at universities or medical schools. The majority of faculty were classified as clinicians (15% or less time spent in teaching) or clinician-educators (more than 15% time spent in teaching), and few were clinician-researchers (30% or more time spent in research). Thirty-six percent of faculty were internal medicine subspecialists. All units were involved in training internal medicine residents and medical students, and 21% trained fellows of various types. Half of the units had teaching clinics located in underserved areas, and one fourth had teaching clinics serving more than 50% managed care patients. Heads of teaching units reported that 54% of recent graduating residents chose careers in general internal medicine. CONCLUSIONS: General internal medicine teaching units surveyed contributed substantial faculty effort, much of it unfunded and located off-campus, to training medical students, residents, and fellows. A majority of their graduating residents chose generalist careers.  (+info)

The NHSC Loan Repayment Program (LRP) is a competitive program that recruits fully trained and licensed health professionals to provide primary medical care, dental care and mental health services at NHSC-approved sites. Primary care clinicians who qualify for the LRP may receive monetary awards to assist with repayment of outstanding qualifying education loans. To be eligible, a clinician must be fully trained, licensed and working at an NHSC-approved site. Eligible job opportunities at NHSC-approved sites are posted on the NHSC job opportunities list.. While employment at an eligible site is a requirement to qualify for the LRP, it is not a guarantee of an award. Awards are granted first to those professionals serving at NHSC-approved sites with the greatest need (i.e., highest HPSA score). NHSC-approved sites with less need are awarded as resources allow. Need is determined by using the health professional shortage area designation score - the higher the score, the greater the need. These ...

Health professional shortage area (HPSA) designations were created to highlight areas of primary care shortage and direct incentives to physicians willing to practice in these areas. We demonstrate the volatility of these geographies by examining the HPSA status of primary care physicians whose practice locations were the same in 2008 and 2013. Although the change in the percentage of physicians practicing in HPSAs over this period was negligible, approximately 28% of the stationary physicians lost a primary care HPSA designation, whereas about 21% gained a designation.
In 1911 the family were living at 33 Bartholomew Street, Thorn Lane, Norwich, and Herbert was working as a motor car engine fitter, making him a valuable future asset for the Army Service Corps.

Introduced the bipartisan Ensuring Seniors Access to Local Pharmacies Act of 2015 (H.R. 793) with Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT) to allow any willing pharmacy located within medically underserved or health professional shortage areas, like our rural communities in Southwest Virginia, to participate in Medicare Part D preferred networks. While Medicare Part D preferred pharmacy network plans were designed to make prescription drugs more affordable for beneficiaries, these plans have created confusion for seniors and put community pharmacies at a competitive disadvantage. Some seniors, especially in rural areas, have reported having to travel upwards of 20 miles in order to get their medications from a preferred pharmacy network because their local community pharmacy was not given the opportunity to participate in such a network. For me, this is an issue of fairness for all those who make their home in rural America. ...

California hospitals are concerned about the need for an adequate supply of highly skilled health professionals to meet the demands for health care services now and in the future. Numerous studies have validated the need to address critical health professional shortages in nursing and the allied health occupations. However, efforts to implement recommended strategies have been hindered by a lack of a coordinated statewide effort involving health employers and other necessary partners. In response to the need for focus on this issue and the need for statewide solutions, CHA established the CHA Workforce Committee in 2007. Members of the committee include a broad cross-section of Californias hospitals, both urban and rural, and also represent the states various geographic regions. The committee has been focused primarily on allied health professional shortages, but in 2013 broadened its mission to include supporting various statewide nursing and physician shortage initiatives.

Democratic Senator Maria Cantwell of Washington is a prime reason President Obama will have a hard time getting health care reform passed this year. Let me explain this seeming oddity. At a news conference on May 27 in Yakima, Wa., the purportedly liberal Cantwell, who represents a state that voted 58 percent for Obama, announced her support for two new, bipartisan bills that would advance a key goal of Obamas reforms - increasing access to primary care physicians and other doctors who are in short supply. As Massachusetts has discovered, making sure nearly everyone has health insurance doesnt help if there arent enough doctors to take care of them.. The two bills Cantwell endorsed feature provisions that would cost the federal government billions of dollars a year - scholarships and loan forgiveness for medical students who serve in shortage areas, increased funding for the National Health Service Corps, higher Medicare payments to primary care doctors, more Medicare funding for resident ...

Since FY 2010, CDCs budget authority has actually decreased by 11.4 percent (adjusted for inflation). This cut has occurred in spite of the growing and geographically disparate burden of largely preventable health threats such as the opioid epidemic and emerging infectious disease outbreaks such as the Zika virus.. CHIP, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), National Health Service Corps, the Special Diabetes Program and other important programs are critical to ensuring that Americans have access to health care and to improving equity in health outcomes. However, cutting CDC funding undermines the core missions of those programs, as CDC activities supported by the Prevention Fund work in concert with primary care providers to keep Americans healthy. These are separate and distinct sets of activities that work together to protect the health of Americans..

Many U.S. communities face difficulties attracting physicians. To address this problem, states and federal agencies have turned to foreign physicians who have just completed graduate medical education in the United States under J-1 visas. Ordinarily, these physicians must return home after completing their programs, but this requirement can be waived at the request of a state or federal agency if the physician agrees to practice in an underserved area. In 1996, GAO reported that J-1 visa waivers had become a major source of physicians for underserved areas but were not well coordinated with Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) programs for addressing physician shortages. GAO was asked to examine (1) the number of waivers requested by states and federal agencies; (2) waiver physicians practice specialties, settings, and locations; and (3) the extent to which waiver physicians are accounted for in HHSs efforts to address physician shortages.

Background: Evidence suggests that the experience of cancer differs across racial and ethnic underserved populations. We describe the referral patterns and clinical characteristics of patients receiving care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institutes clinical outreach community cancer program, an initiative established to improve access to quality cancer care across the spectrum of the disease for medically underserved patients.. Methods: Two hundred and twenty five patients, receiving care at our community cancer care site, based within a Federally Qualified Health Center in Boston, were consented to research and enrolled between January 2012 and June 2015. The program accommodates all oncology and hematology referrals from primary care providers (PCP) at the health center. Variables of interest were collected through medical chart review and a patient intake survey that was developed for the program, and included age, gender, ethnicity, health insurance coverage, reasons for referral, presence of ...
I am currently a physical therapist working in a rural hospital. I also grew up in a small town with an underserved population desperate with physical therapy needs. PTs are highly trained and qualified health professionals that now require a doctoral level degree to graduate and practice. With that increased schooling comes increased financial debt. Due to the financial demands of my student loans from PT school, I found myself at a quandary of what to do... Follow my heart and serve the needs of those who are underserved and who i know need my services most or move to a larger city for employment which salary is needed to repay these PT school loans?

Thanks for this post. Im still upset about the original article - I think its done real damage without an opposing viewpoint published, for no purpose other than to generate publicity. That is not NYT journalism, usually, but im not a faithful reader so perhaps im wrong about the NYTs usual tenor. Im still working through my thoughts about the original post. As a primary care physician to largely underserved patients who is part-time clinical because of my public health and policy research responsibilities far more so than my work hours or schedule, I find it utterly reprehensible that an anesthiologist in beverly hills would pass judgment on people practicing part-time clinical medicine as a part of the problem for why we have primary care workforce shortages. Do we really want to debate which of us in medicine are doing more for society or enough for society?? Honestly, such a debate has zero appeal for me. as the first LTE notes, we need discussion about the real issues of primary care ...
Backround: Elderly are frequently afflicted by more than one pathological condition and are more vulnerable to dementia and depression, diseases that are of chronic nature and require repeated monitoring. Such patients face the greatest difficulties to gain access to mental health care services. In the context of an integrated care project, the 1st Department of Psychiatry developed a tele-psychogeriatric service, consisting of a tele-psychogeriatric unit (T-psyGU) and a mobile tele-psychogeriatric unit (MT-psyGU) for home care services. The aim of this program was the delivery of diagnostic, therapeutic and educational approaches to demented or depressed patients and their families, that live in remote and underserved areas, through the implementation of new technology in the geriatric mental health care delivery system and to connect health care services provided by different sources.. Methods:. - Setting: rural and urban underserved areas ( Andros Island). - Staffing: social workers and GP ...

We observed a significant improvement in glycemic control as a decrease in mean HbA1c among participants who attended ≥2 appointments at FQHCs. By contrast, participants who did not use the FQHC as their primary provider did not have a significant improvement in glycemic control, even though they had a mean of 1.9 free clinic visits (SD, 0.98 visits) at the 9-month follow up. Although a few studies have shown that underserved patients can achieve control of chronic conditions such as diabetes under the care of free clinics, this seems to be possible when continuity of care is achieved, since their participants visited the free clinics on average ,5 times in a 12-month period.14,15 Hence we attribute the improved glycemic control found in this study in part to physician-patient relationships during continuous care.. We surmise that improved adherence to medication regimens is also of particular importance. As shown in Table 3, before the intervention, participants reported not taking their ...

Good health requires good oral health, yet millions of Americans, especially vulnerable and underserved populations, lack access to basic oral health care. The Health Resources and Services Administration and the California HealthCare Foundation asked the IOM and the National Research Council to assess the current oral health care system and make recommendations on ways to improve access to care for vulnerable and underserved populations. The IOM recommends changes to incorporate oral health care into overall health care, changes in education and training of all types of health care professionals, and changes in how oral health care is financed and delivered.

Hemeos, a student startup aimed at connecting bone marrow stem cell donors to underserved minority recipients, has been threatened in recent weeks by proposed federal regulations, which could make the companys business model illegal.. Originally founded by alumni Jon Fernandez (GRD 16), Doug Grant (GRD 16) and Craig Poland (GRD 16) in 2015, Hemeos gained attention in the university community in May when it won first place out of 80 contestants at the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiatives Entrepalooza pitch competition.. The startup, which matches primarily black transplant applicants to compatible marrow donors through a digital registry, incentivizes donation with a $2,000 payment, according to its website.. However, Hemeos is now in danger of violating federal regulations regarding payment for bone marrow stem cells.. While existing federal law under the 1984 National Organ Transplant Act bans the sale of internal organs and bone marrow - punishing violators with up to five years in ...

Columbus -Today, Assistant Senate Democratic Leader Charleta B. Tavares (D - Columbus) voted against Senate Bill 214, legislation aimed at defunding Planned Parenthood centers throughout Ohio. Planned Parenthood centers are primarily located in medically underserved areas, and a loss of funding would take away the only option for health care services for many Ohioans. Twenty-six of the twenty-eight Planned Parenthood centers are located in medically underserved areas, said Senator Tavares. The health care system in Ohio simply does not have enough providers to absorb all of the patients currently served by Planned Parenthood. We are placing personal politics ahead of the wellbeing of women across the state of Ohio.. Senator Tavares also spoke against the committee process and treatment of the opponents who came to testify against Senate Bill 214. Senate Bill 214 was placed in the Government Oversight and Reform committee where there are eleven male members and only one female. There are ...
An overlooked part of the development of public broadcasting in America is the key role that Rockefeller philanthropy played in studying and funding educational radio before World War II. This paper recounts one little-known example of funding, started in 1938, directed to underserved minority audiences. It is the first example of a foundation underwriting the creation of American public media designed for non-English speakers.
Medical schools in the Northeast generally performed poorly on all three measures and, as such, had the lowest regional social mission scores.. Public medical schools graduated higher proportions of primary care physicians than their private counterparts did.. Schools with substantial National Institutes of Health research funding generally produced fewer primary care physicians and physicians practicing in underserved areas, and thus had lower social mission scores overall.. Several large research institutions (notably the University of Minnesota and University of Washington) defied this trend, ranking in the top quartile for overall social mission score.. Historically black schools had the highest social mission rankings.. Osteopathic schools produced more primary care physicians than allopathic schools but trained fewer minorities.. Schools in progressively smaller cities produced more primary care physicians and physicians who practiced in underserved communities but graduated fewer ...
Academic detailing seemed to increase primary care physicians recommendations for mammography and CBE among women age 40 and older. The findings are strong and consistent using medical audit measures for mammography and CBE among women age 40 and older. The findings on the impact of academic detailing on preventive behavior among PCPs are also consonant with those from a recent randomized clinical trial26that successfully increased recommendations for smoking cessation counseling among primary care physicians; the preventive aim, the modification of counseling skills, the sample of community-based physicians, and patient verification are notably similar, suggesting the strength of the result. The findings on increased CBE recommendations post-intervention are consistent with those from another study of the impact of physician office-based education on CBE for breast cancer screening,18 despite differences in the patient populations. The consistency of these results across several studies ...
Cruise notes that many vulnerable people lack the resources that allow them to manage their health effectively, and nurses should be prepared to meet these patients right where they are, without judgment.. They may have low literacy, live in poverty, live in environments that are polluted, run down, or crime-ridden; and work in jobs with low pay and dangerous conditions, says Cruise. People in these situations will pick up on a disapproving attitude by the nurse and shut down, shut the nurse out, and be less likely to follow his or her health care directions. Nurses should adopt a caring approach. While not condoning negative or criminal behaviors, accepting clients as they are and demonstrating concern for their health and well-being are more likely to motivate them to listen to the nurses advice and make positive changes.. Jan Jones-Schenk, national director of Western Governors Universitys (WGU) College of Health Professions and chief nursing officer for WGU, encourages nurses working ...
The healthcare needs of underserved communities are diverse and manifold. With HIV pandemic ravaging through India, and appalling healthcare systems, the need is compelling to integrate different tenets of healthcare services to make effective comprehensive HIV prevention, treatment, care and support a reality. Bobby Ramakant writes on such a model intervention which brings together different healthcare services under one Multiplex Mobile Medical Unit moving through Gujarat villages in India .. Gujarat AIDS Prevention Unit (GAP) collaborated with The Brooklyn Hospital Center, USA and American Indian Association (AIA) to respond to these needs by coming up with a Multiplex Mobile Medical Unit, which is reasonably well-equipped bringing together medical, nursing, psychosocial counselling and pastoral care services for thousands of people from underserved communities in rural Gujarat (many of them living with HIV). The Brooklyn Hospital Center (USA) has sent a team of senior medical experts as ...

Oxygen saturation level is a key vital sign used in clinical medicine today. Severely low levels of oxygen in the blood can lead to hypoxemia, causing cellular hypoxia, organ dysfunction, and even death. However, the instrumentation used to measure oxygen saturation does not operate with the desired reliability for such an important metric, Group 9 said.. A pulse oximeter is a noninvasive device typically used to measure a patients oxygen saturation, but this apparatus has significant limitations in certain patient populations. False or inaccurate readings are often found in patients with poor peripheral circulation, vasodilatory states, or vasoconstrictive states. In order to obtain this measurement in these patient populations, the Intensive Care Unit must conduct a very painful, invasive procedure known as an arterial puncture, and draw a significant amount of blood from an arterial catheter in order to conduct the arterial blood gas test. The device that Group 9 is designing, however, aims ...
The MLSDF is reserved for a student dedicated to working with terminally ill patients and their families, particularly in underserved communities. Instituted in 2010, this SDF honors a student of the program who lost her battle with cancer when she was a third-year student, Moriam Lanrewaju. This award is designated for work with underserved populations (patients and their families) affected by terminal illness. Past awardees have committed to working with those populations (and their families) who suffer from chronic medical conditions and who may have limited access to mental health services. We also encourage awardees to devote their clinical research efforts (during and after the program) to better understand what might be effective service planning for such populations. At the end of each training year, they will be asked to send a summary of your work to the family, such that they can be aware of the work being done in Moriams memory.. If you would like to apply for this source of ...

Minneapolis is increasing physical activity through the expansion of bike-share kiosks to underserved areas of the city. To date, Minneapolis Nice Ride bike-share program has added eight new kiosks in North Minneapolis, for a total of 11 kiosks in that part of the city.

Released: 7/17/2012 Changing the way that Medicare payments are adjusted to account for regional variations in the cost of providing care as recommended by a previous report from the Institute of Medicine would result in payment increases for some hospitals and practitioners and decreases for others, concludes the Phase II report from the IOM study. Geographic adjustments should be used to ensure the accuracy of payments, said the committee that wrote the report, but they are not optimal tools to tackle larger national policy goals such as improving access to care in medically underserved areas.. ...
Archived since: Dec, 2006. Description: The Department of Health works to promote, protect and improve the health and well-being of Tennesseans. Keeping people healthy by preventing problems that contribute to disease and injury is the overall emphasis of the Department. Responsibilities include immunizing children against measles, recruiting doctors to practice in rural medically underserved areas of Tennessee, offering early prenatal care and proper nutrition to pregnant women, ensuring that restaurants meet standards of cleanliness, and performing laboratory tests ensuring safe drinking water. The greatest causes of premature death and preventable illness are closely related to the way we live-what we eat, whether we smoke, how much we exercise, and what we do to protect our own safety. The Department promotes healthy lifestyles by educating Tennesseans about these risks and making them more aware of the importance of individuals taking responsibility for their health and their familys ...
We are concerned these reductions will drive cardiac PET services out of physician offices, where the majority of cardiac PET is provided, and into hospitals which could limit patient access to this important imaging modality, particularly in rural and underserved areas, and increase beneficiary and health care system costs, according to the letter..

In it, the groups said the CMS decision to assume a 90% utilization rate for PET cameras needed to be reconsidered. ...
