Why do dyspeptic patients over the age of 50 consult their general practitioner? A qualitative investigation of health beliefs relating to dyspepsia. (1/6162)

BACKGROUND: The prognosis of late-diagnosed gastric cancer is poor, yet less than half of dyspeptic patients consult their general practitioner (GP). AIM: To construct an explanatory model of the decision to consult with dyspepsia in older patients. METHOD: A total of 75 patients over the age of 50 years who had consulted with dyspepsia at one of two inner city general practices were invited to an in-depth interview. The interviews were taped, transcribed, and analysed using the computer software NUD.IST, according to the principles of grounded theory. RESULTS: Altogether, 31 interviews were conducted. The perceived threat of cancer and the need for reassurance were key influences on the decision to consult. Cues such as a change in symptoms were important in prompting a re-evaluation of the likely cause. Personal vulnerability to serious illness was often mentioned in the context of family or friends' experience, but tempered by an individual's life expectations. CONCLUSION: Most patients who had delayed consultation put their symptoms down to 'old age' or 'spicy food'. However, a significant minority were fatalistic, suspecting the worst but fearing medical interventions.  (+info)

Delay in presentation of patients with acute stroke to hospital in Oxford. (2/6162)

We identified prospectively all patients (181 patients, 183 episodes) admitted to hospital in Oxford with acute stroke from 1 January to 30 June 1997. Data were inadequate in 30, leaving 153 episodes in 151 patients (63 men, 90 women). Structured interviews were used to investigate the timing of events preceding admission. Most strokes (91%) occurred at home, and 36% of patients were alone. After a median delay of 15 min, 56% called a GP (median 30 min response), 41% an ambulance (median 48 min to admission), and 3% went directly to A&E. Median time from hospital admission to doctor assessment was 69 min. Factors reducing delay were: initially calling an ambulance rather than a GP (p < 0.0001); onset not at home (p < 0.001); symptoms improving between onset and admission (p < 0.002); and altered consciousness (p < 0.002). The stroke was not recognized by 44% of patients, but no significant delay resulted. Overall, 31% were admitted within 3 h of onset, 46% within 6 h. Initial contact with the GP is a major determinant of delay. If acute therapies for stroke become available, GPs should be the primary targets for an educational initiative.  (+info)

Where do people go for treatment of sexually transmitted diseases? (3/6162)

CONTEXT: Major public health resources are devoted to the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) through public STD clinics. However, little is known about where people actually receive treatment for STDs. METHODS: As part of the National Health and Social Life Survey, household interviews were performed from February to September 1992 with 3,432 persons aged 18-59. Weighted population estimates and multinomial response methods were used to describe the prevalence of self-reported STDs and patterns of treatment utilization by persons who ever had a bacterial or viral STD. RESULTS: An estimated two million STDs were self-reported in the previous year, and 22 million 18-59-year-olds self-reported lifetime STDs. Bacterial STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, nongonococcal urethritis, pelvic inflammatory disease and syphilis) were more common than viral STDs (genital herpes, genital warts, hepatitis and HIV). Genital warts were the most commonly reported STD in the past year, while gonorrhea was the most common ever-reported STD. Almost half of all respondents who had ever had an STD had gone to a private practice for treatment (49%); in comparison, only 5% of respondents had sought treatment at an STD clinic. Respondents with a bacterial STD were seven times more likely to report going to an STD clinic than were respondents with a viral STD--except for chlamydia, which was more likely to be treated at family planning clinics. Men were significantly more likely than women to go to an STD clinic. Young, poor or black respondents were all more likely to use a family planning clinic for STD treatment than older, relatively wealthy or white respondents. Age, sexual history and geographic location did not predict particular types of treatment-seeking. CONCLUSIONS: The health care utilization patterns for STD treatment in the United States are complex. Specific disease diagnosis, gender, race and income status all affect where people will seek treatment. These factors need to be taken into account when STD prevention strategies are being developed.  (+info)

Socioeconomic differences in childhood consultation rates in general practice in England and Wales: prospective cohort study. (6/6162)

OBJECTIVE: To establish how consultation rates in children for episodes of illness, preventive activities, and home visits vary by social class. DESIGN: Analysis of prospectively collected data from the fourth national survey of morbidity in general practice, carried out between September 1991 and August 1992. SETTING: 60 general practices in England and Wales. SUBJECTS: 106 102 children aged 0 to 15 years registered with the participating practices. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Mean overall consultation rates for any reason, illness by severity of underlying disease, preventive episodes, home visits, and specific diagnostic category (infections, asthma, and injuries). RESULTS: Overall consultation rates increased from registrar general's social classes I-II to classes IV-V in a linear pattern (for IV-V v I-II rate ratio 1.18; 95% confidence interval 1.14 to 1. 22). Children from social classes IV-V consulted more frequently than children from classes I-II for illnesses (rate ratio 1.23; 1.15 to 1.30), including infections, asthma, and injuries and poisonings. They also had significantly higher consultation rates for minor, moderate, and serious illnesses and higher home visiting rates (rate ratio 2.00; 1.81 to 2.18). Consultations for preventive activities were lower in children from social classes IV-V than in children from social classes I-II (rate ratio 0.95; 0.86 to 1.05). CONCLUSIONS: Childhood consultation rates for episodes of illness increase from social classes I-II through to classes IV-V. The findings on severity of underlying illness suggest the health of children from lower social classes is worse than that of children from higher social classes. These results reinforce the need to identify and target children for preventive health care in their socioeconomic context.  (+info)

Voluntary euthanasia under control? Further empirical evidence from The Netherlands. (7/6162)

Nineteen ninety-six saw the publication of a major Dutch survey into euthanasia in the Netherlands. This paper outlines the main statistical findings of this survey and considers whether it shows that voluntary euthanasia is under effective control in the Netherlands. The paper concludes that although there has been some improvement in compliance with procedural requirements, the practice of voluntary euthanasia remains beyond effective control.  (+info)

The relationship between census-derived socio-economic variables and general practice consultation rates in three town centre practices. (8/6162)

BACKGROUND: The relationship between socio-economic factors and consultation rates is important in determining resource allocation to general practices. AIM: To determine the relationship between general practice surgery consultation rates and census-derived socio-economic variables for patients receiving the same primary and secondary care. METHOD: A retrospective analysis was taken of computerized records in three general practices in Mansfield, North Nottinghamshire, with 29,142 patients spread over 15 electoral wards (Jarman score range from -23 to +25.5). Linear regression analysis of surgery consultation rates at ward and enumeration district levels was performed against Jarman and Townsend deprivation scores and census socio-economic variables. RESULTS: Both the Townsend score (r2 = 59%) and the Jarman score (r2 = 39%) were associated with surgery consultation rates at ward level. The Townsend score had a stronger association than the Jarman score because all four of its component variables were individually associated with increased consultations compared with four out of eight Jarman components. CONCLUSIONS: Even in practices not eligible for deprivation payments there were appreciable differences in consultation rates between areas with different socio-economic characteristics. The results suggest that the variables used to determine deprivation payments should be reconsidered, and they support suggestions that payments should be introduced at a lower level of deprivation and administered on an enumeration district basis.  (+info)

Nigeria ranks fourth among 22 high tuberculosis (TB) burden countries. Although it reached 99% DOTS coverage in 2008, current case detection rate is 40%. Little is known about delays before the start of TB therapy and health-seeking behaviour of TB patients in rural resource-limited settings. We aimed to: 1) assess healthcare-seeking behaviour and delay in treatment of pulmonary TB patients, 2) identify the determinants of the delay in treatment of pulmonary TB. We conducted a cross-sectional study of adult new pulmonary TB patients notified to the National Tuberculosis Control Programme (NTP) by three rural (two mission/one public) hospitals. Data on health-seeking and delays were collected using a standardised questionnaire. We defined patient delay as the interval (weeks) between the onset of cough and the first visit to any health provider, and health system delay as the time interval (weeks) between patients first attendance to any health provider, and the onset of treatment. Total delay is the
In the Gaza strip, diarrhea is one of main reasons for children visiting primary healthcare centers. Hence, we investigate predictors of the diarrheal illness and health care-seeking behavior among different age groups. This community-based cross-sectional survey was conducted from August 2017 to June 2018 among 1857 households. A pretested structured questionnaire included information about socio-demographic, sanitation, hygiene, source of water, diarrheal illness, and seeking healthcare in households was administered to head of household. To achieve representativeness for the five Gazas governorates, a cluster random sampling was applied. Of the 1857 households heads, 421 (22.7%) reported an episode of diarrhea during the 48 h preceding the interview resulting an overall prevalence rate of 3.8 per 100 individuals. The prevalence of diarrhea was statistical significant greater in males (5.4/100) compared to females (1.3/100) in all age groups (p | 0.05). Socio-demographic, economic, water,

The dataset used in the analyses was constructed by merging all reported symptoms experienced by the responders with each individual symptom experience. This was then used as a study case. For each symptom experience, the outcome variable was whether or not the GP had been contacted about the symptom. To assess the appropriateness of merging the 44 different symptom experiences, the researchers conducted sensitivity analyses considering each of the 44 symptom experiences separately.. Covariates considered in the uni-, bi-, and multivariable statistical analyses were; influence on daily activities, concern about the symptom, and symptom burden. Influence on daily activities, concern about the symptom and general concern about the current health were categorised on a 5-point scale: none at all, slight, moderate, quite a bit, and extreme.. The number of symptoms experienced by each individual was used as a proxy for the symptom burden. Thus, for each symptom experience reported by the ...

By: William Jiang Today, I will not be talking about something new, this topic has been around for years, but not much action was taken. Let me ask you a question, Do you think people should I have to pay for medical help? My p.o.v is the same as hundreds and thousands of people.. I dont think that people need to pay in order to get help they need. The sentence, People should pay for medical help doesnt sit right with many people. For instance, lets say a homeless man broke his leg, now he cant go anywhere to ask for money or look for a job. His leg might become infected or not grow back properly, thus giving him a defective leg. Without a functioning leg, the homeless mans job opportunities will instantly be a lot smaller. Therefore, ruining his life since he wont be able to progress and evolve through it. Ive looked at a couple websites and Ive seen that as visit to the ER or a hospital stay for an uninsured person can range from $900 to $2000! People on the streets have no hope ...

For the vast majority of newborn babies, birth and adaptation to extrauterine life happens as a completely normal process that does not require medical attention at all. For them, even the administrative routines of hospital admission are bypassed: they are cared for in nurseries rather than in hospital wards, and they are usually registered together with their mothers (or not at all) in the obstetric service. Unavoidably, perhaps, the normal newborn infant and its mothers mothering ability are frequently virtually ignored and left to the most junior staff, who have almost certainly had inadequate training to deal with difficulties.. And yet in the neonatal period arguably lie the origins of influences that have the potential to alter lifes course. The aim of keeping healthy children healthy is influenced strongly by good mothering behaviour in respect of care, feeding and nutrition, immunisation and healthcare-seeking behaviour, early childhood education and environmental control. ...
Background: This study aimed to analyse the patient predictors of health-seeking behaviour for persons coughing for more than 2 weeks to better understand this vulnerable and important population. Methods: The study analysed data from a cohort study (SOCS - Secondary Outcome Cohort Study) embedded in a community randomised trial ZAMSTAR (Zambia and South Africa TB and AIDS Reduction Study) in eight high-burden TB communities in the Western Cape, South Africa. These datasets are unique as they contain TB-related data as well as data on health, health-seeking behaviour, lifestyle choices, employment, socio-economic status, education and stigma. We use uni- and multivariate logistic regressions to estimate the odds ratios of consulting for a cough (of more than 2 weeks duration) for a range of relevant patient predictors. Results: Three hundred and forty persons consulted someone about their cough and this represents 37% of the 922 participants who reported coughing for more than 2 weeks. In the ...

Xanax is devastating for both the person addicted to it and their loved ones. However, there are options for those looking to recover.
I know what you are trying to get at, but i dont understand your reasoning and logic. Its common sense that if someone isnt too ill then they will stay at home and self treat, but if they are too ill then they will get medical help. Especially in the UK where the NHS is free (at the point of use). My uncle and auntie initially self treated at home, but when their symptoms worsened they decided to get medical help, but both sadly passed away. So we can make 2 assumptions here that they passed away naturally due to their illness or they passed away due to whatever happened at the hospital. I dont have the full details of what happened at the hospital, but they were not there for long before they succumbed to their illness ...

Heart failure (HF) patients frequently suffer from episodes of deterioration and may need medical treatment. An adequate reaction from the patient is needed to decrease the delay between the onset of deterioration and consulting a medical professional (i.e. consulting behaviour). The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether depressive symptoms are associated with the duration of the delay between the onset of symptoms of worsening HF and hospitalization, and to examine how consulting behaviour correlates to depressive symptoms and delay in HF patients.

The only difference is I thought there was no reason I should be depressed, and I knew that very insignificant things were upsetting me. I was also afraid of what I was going to be diagnosed with...I was very afraid of being bi polar. I promise that if you go see a family doctor that 1. youre probably not going to be diagnosed with anything and 2. youre probably not going to be referred to a psychiatrist, maybe a counselor at most because of your issues with your boyfriend. My family doctor is simply trying to provide me the medication that I need to be functional. It is a hit and miss process, but I can guarantee you that it is worth it. I think that I may have finally found the right meds for me. And Im sure you will too.

BACKGROUND: Assessing healthcare utilization is important to identify weaknesses of healthcare systems, to outline action points for preventive measures and interventions, and to more accurately estimate the disease burden in a population. METHODS: A healthcare utilization survey was developed for the Typhoid Fever Surveillance in Africa Program (TSAP) to adjust incidences of salmonellosis determined through passive, healthcare facility-based surveillance. This cross-sectional survey was conducted at 11 sites in 9 sub-Saharan African countries. Demographic data and healthcare-seeking behavior were assessed at selected households. Overall and age-stratified percentages of each study population that sought healthcare at a TSAP healthcare facility and elsewhere were determined. RESULTS: Overall, 88% (1007/1145) and 81% (1811/2238) of the population in Polesgo and Nioko 2, Burkina Faso, respectively, and 63% (1636/2590) in Butajira, Ethiopia, sought healthcare for fever at any TSAP healthcare ...

Medical tourism isnt a recent global phenomenon; it dates back to thousands of years, when Greek pilgrims travelled everywhere the Mediterranean to the tiny territory within the Gulf of Aegina called Epidauria, a medical tourism destination of that era.. With the appearance of globalization and culture of consumerism, theres an increasing tendency among people to travel in search of higher quality and affordable health options. Medical tourism includes medical treatments, wellness and alternative medicines.. Medical tourism is gradually transitioning towards medical value travel that also includes capturing a patients healthcare-seeking behavior yet because of the wider economic impact on the countries hosting them.. It is estimated that 11 million people travel annually to hunt medical aid out of their country, which is around 1 percent of the worldwide tourist volume. Medical tourism is today a $30 billion industry, having grown at a formidable rate of over 15 per cent over the last ...

In this study, we used a novel large-scale, prospective, community-based survey to identify people with TB-indicative symptoms in South India and reveal key barriers to delayed care-seeking. We then identified a subpopulation of employed men who problem-drink and smoke, who are particularly at risk of TB and unlikely to seek care. While they comprise only 10% of our sample, we model that they may account for 54% of all TB-diagnosed individuals in Chennai who do not promptly seek care, making them a prime target for targeted interventions to increase care-seeking behaviour.. Characteristics around occupation and health behaviours emerged as strong overall predictors of delayed care-seeking. In particular, problem drinking and smoking were both strongly negatively associated with seeking care for TB symptoms. We also found large differences in care-seeking behaviour by occupation, with individuals who are not in the labour force (home makers and the retired/unemployed/disabled) being more likely ...
Abstract. Maternal practices regarding children's health care have been recognized as an important factor associated with mortality rates among children < 5 years of age. We focused on health care-seeking practices of primary caretakers of children < 5 years of age with diarrheal disease in Kolkata. We interviewed caretakers of 1,058 children in a baseline survey and 6,077 children on six subsequent surveys. The prevalence of diarrhea during the preceding 2 weeks was 7.9% in the baseline survey and 5.7% (lowest 3.5% to highest 7.8%) in subsequent surveys. Multivariate logistic regression showed that formal education of primary caretakers was associated with seeking care outside the home (odds ratio [OR] = 15.5; 95% confidence interval [CI] [2.5-85.7]; P = 0.002). Multinomial logistic regression showed that formal education of the primary caretaker (OR = 21.4; 95% CI [3.2-139.0]; P = 0.002) and presence of dry mouth during diarrhea (OR = 17.3; 95% CI [2.7-110.9]; P = 0.003) were associated

In the case of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy the heart muscle thickens, making it more difficult for blood to travel away from the heart. As a result, the heart must work much harder in order to perform its job of pumping blood. In some instances, cases of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy may occur on one side of the heart, meaning that it is asymmetrical. In younger people the condition is generally more severe although it can be diagnosed in patients of any age. Young athletes, many of those who previously seemed healthy, if affected by this disorder could suddenly collapse and die during periods of intensive exercise. Thus early detection could be life saving for these athletes. Symptoms of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy include:. ...

The health care debate in the United States is far from over despite the passage of health care legislation. Studies show about half of Americans lack confidence in their health care system. Others are pushing for a repeal of the health care legislation, and still others put off getting medical help even after a heart attack because they worry about paying for their care. Americans are just as divided on health care as they were before President Obamas health reform legislation became law.

  • 2003). Generally, HTMS incorporates an extensive suite of clinical instruments including a wireless weight scale, single lead electrocardiogram, hemadynamometer, spirometer, thermometer, (pulse) oximeter, uricometer, and Internet enabled tools to facilitate patient management long-distance by the healthcare team (Rahimpour, 2006). (

  • Telemonitoring systems are increasingly implemented for the follow-up of chronic diseases because they allow capturing patients' clinical parameters ( e.g. heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation, blood glucose, electrocardiograph, respiratory flow, etc.) easily and in a continuous or intermittent pace[ 2 ]. (
  • Telemonitoring also enhances self-management where patients are often in charge of transferring self-measured clinical data through the system either to primary care professionals or to a specialised care centre where the received parameters can be integrated with other relevant information related to the state of the patient[ 2 ]. (
  • Patients receive a daily health lesson at a time they choose, and nurses working remotely track their clinical signs and intervene immediately if blood sugar rises or the patient skips therapy. (
  • To identify social, clinical and behavioral factors of tuberculosis patients that are associated with delay in the search for primary health care. (
  • No social or clinical variables were statistically associated with patient delays in the search for primary health care. (
  • More recently, however, the large-scale collection and storage of samples left over from clinical routine has become popular in an approach termed health care-embedded (or health care-integrated) biobanking. (
  • Since most scientific questions that can potentially be addressed by health care-embedded biobanking are unknown at the time of collection, the paradigm of informed consent from clinical research cannot be transferred easily to this type of research. (

  • Additionally, the OIG expressed concern that the financial incentives offered through the opportunity to invest in a clinical lab would affect a physician's decision-making for all his or her patients, resulting in overutilization of laboratory services generally and increased costs to federal healthcare programs. (
  • With more frequent drug testing of patients, physician groups are increasingly interested in establishing their own clinical labs. (
  • We collected data concerning CVR factors and sexual health inquiry through interviews and clinical records and we used the International Index of Erectile Function to evaluate ED. Logistic regression models were used to study the association between ED and CVR factors. (
  • With the industry embracing value-based care, healthcare organizations are focused on improving outcomes and patient satisfaction, while also looking to reduce costs, increase security and compliance and optimize clinical and non-clinical team collaboration. (

  • In order to ensure efficient access to medical and patient-related information, hospitals have invested heavily in improving clinical mobile technologies and spreading their use among doctors towards a more efficient and personalized delivery of care procedures. (
  • To tackle this issue, in this paper, we present the main outcomes of the project TESTMED, which aimed at realizing a clinical system that provides operational support to doctors using mobile technologies for delivering care to patients, in a bid to minimize medical errors. (
  • The system exploits concepts from Business Process Management (BPM) on how to manage a specific class of care procedures, called clinical guidelines, and how to support their execution and mobile orchestration among doctors. (

(NASDAQ: SVNT) today announced that results from two pivotal KRYSTEXXAÃ ® (pegloticase) Phase III clinical studies in patients with refractory chronic gout (RCG) have been published in The Journal of the American Medical Association ( JAMA ). (
  • The data demonstrated that treatment with KRYSTEXXA resulted in significant and sustained reductions in uric acid levels along with clinical improvements in a substantial proportion of RCG patients for six months, a timeframe for demonstrating clinical improvement that is unique in randomized controlled studies of urate-lowering therapies. (

  • ESRD care often occurs at dialysis centers that may be remote from hospitals or the main practice site or at home and thus are logical sites to employ telehealth because the care team may not always be physically available to the patient. (
  • The assessment of patient experiences in the diagnostic phase heavily focuses on experiences in general practice, which does not seem appropriate in the German health care setting. (
  • A detailed analysis showed that intention to use telemonitoring was best predicted by healthcare professionals' beliefs that they would obtain adequate training and technical support and that telemonitoring would require important changes in their practice. (

  • A telehealth initiative through the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) is boosting medication adherence among poor patients with diabetes and keeping them out of the emergency department (ED). Getting these results elsewhere might be difficult, however. (
  • What role do healthcare providers play in improving adherence rates? (
  • Health care providers must communicate the risks and benefits of treatment to their patients and encourage adherence and treatment completion. (
  • Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements regarding expected future operating results, anticipated results of sales, marketing and patient adherence efforts, expectations concerning payer reimbursement, the anticipated results of product development efforts, the anticipated benefits of the pending acquisition of Thrive, including estimated synergies and other financial impacts, and the expected timing of completion of the transaction.

(
  • This summary is reviewed regularly and updated as necessary by the PDQ Supportive and Palliative Care Editorial Board, which is editorially independent of the National Cancer Institute (NCI). (
  • Furthermore, alignment of payer and government (federal and state) regulations with telehealth procedures is needed along with a better understanding of the viewpoints of the various stakeholders in this process (patients, caregivers, clinicians, payers, dialysis organizations, and government regulators). (
  • Presumably, telehealth and remote management technologies may enhance patient autonomy by providing them unscheduled access to clinicians who can provide help. (
  • Similarly, it affords clinicians greater confidence that patients will receive appropriate and safe oversight at home. (
  • PURPOSE Health care leaders encourage clinicians to offer portals that enable patients to access personal health records, but implementation has been a challenge. (
