Biomarkers for exposure to ambient air pollution--comparison of carcinogen-DNA adduct levels with other exposure markers and markers for oxidative stress. (1/395)

Human exposure to genotoxic compounds present in ambient air has been studied using selected biomarkers in nonsmoking Danish bus drivers and postal workers. A large interindividual variation in biomarker levels was observed. Significantly higher levels of bulky carcinogen-DNA adducts (75.42 adducts/10(8) nucleotides) and of 2-amino-apidic semialdehyde (AAS) in plasma proteins (56.7 pmol/mg protein) were observed in bus drivers working in the central part of Copenhagen, Denmark. In contrast, significantly higher levels of AAS in hemoglobin (55.8 pmol/mg protein), malondialdehyde in plasma (0. 96 nmol/ml plasma), and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-albumin adduct (3.38 fmol/ microg albumin) were observed in the suburban group. The biomarker levels in postal workers were similar to the levels in suburban bus drivers. In the combined group of bus drivers and postal workers, negative correlations were observed between bulky carcinogen-DNA adduct and PAH-albumin levels (p = 0.005), and between DNA adduct and [gamma]-glutamyl semialdehyde (GGS) in hemoglobin (p = 0.11). Highly significant correlations were found between PAH-albumin adducts and AAS in plasma (p = 0.001) and GGS in hemoglobin (p = 0.001). Significant correlations were also observed between urinary 8-oxo-7, 8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine and AAS in plasma (p = 0.001) and PAH-albumin adducts (p = 0.002). The influence of the glutatione S-transferase (GST) M1 deletion on the correlation between the biomarkers was studied in the combined group. A significant negative correlation was only observed between bulky carcinogen-DNA adducts and PAH-albumin adducts (p = 0.02) and between DNA adduct and urinary mutagenic activity (p = 0.02) in the GSTM1 null group, but not in the workers who were homozygotes or heterozygotes for GSTM1. Our results indicate that some of the selected biomarkers can be used to distinguish between high and low exposure to environmental genotoxins.  (+info)

Development of patient satisfaction questionnaires: I. Methodological issues. (2/395)

OBJECTIVES: To develop a method for conducting postal surveys of patients' views and experiences of general practitioner care and to produce an off the shelf tool for general practice audit. DESIGN: Prospective study of performance of two patient questionnaires assessing accessibility to services (questionnaire 1) and interpersonal aspects of care (questionnaire 2) in comparing general practices. SETTING: Five general practices in Newcastle upon Tyne. PATIENTS: 3800 patients aged 16 and over, 1900 randomly drawn from family health services authority lists for each practice (questionnaire 1) and 1900 drawn from practice records (questionnaire 2). MAIN MEASURES: Response rates and technical evaluation of performance of the questionnaires (reliability, item nonresponse, ineligible response, sensitivity, and validity). RESULTS: Response rate for questionnaire 1 was 77% (range 69% to 83%) and to questionnaire 2, 82% (77% to 86%). Analysis of respondents and nonrespondents showed that significantly more women, people aged 65 or more, and those consulting in the past six months returned the questionnaires. Technical evaluation indicated good face validity and content validity and good internal consistency. CONCLUSIONS: A standardised off the shelf tool for audit was developed, and it will be a valuable model for future audits in general practice.  (+info)

Do postal questionnaires change GPs' workload and referral patterns? (3/395)

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to determine changes in workload in general practice associated with the postal administration of a health needs questionnaire. METHOD: We carried out controlled before-and-after intervention study of the effects of delivering a postal questionnaire to assess needs for care for patients with arthropathies of the hip and knee, groin hernia and varicose veins, and to assess health service utilization, general health status and risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The setting was a seven-partner, fundholding, group practice in Avon. The subjects were patients registered with an NHS group practice situated in Backwell and Nailsea, Avon. The outcome measures were the frequency of consultation, home visits and night visits, reasons for consultation, referral to specialist agencies and patterns of prescribing. RESULTS: There was no significant difference between the study and control group in the year before and the year after the postal administration of the questionnaire with respect to changes in overall frequency of consultation, frequency of referral (including type of referral) and frequency of prescribing of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. In the study group there was a significant (P<0.05) reduction in the number of daytime home visits and prescriptions written for analgesics. Analysis of the records of those who had received a medical examination, in addition to a postal questionnaire, showed that there was no significant difference between the study and control group with respect to frequency of consultation, referral to outside agencies or items prescribed. CONCLUSION: Administration of a health needs questionnaire to patients registered with this general practice was not associated with an increase in consultation frequency or referral, or a change in prescribing patterns. No plausible explanation could be identified for the significant reduction in the number of home visits and prescriptions written for analgesics. It was concluded that these results were a statistical artefact. On the basis of the evidence from this study, GPs can be reassured that the administration of health needs questionnaires of the type used in this study will not result in any increase in workload or costs of care incurred by increased referrals to outside agencies or increased prescribing.  (+info)

SF-36 scores vary by method of administration: implications for study design. (4/395)

BACKGROUND: Previous research suggests that people respond differently to health status measures when data are collected by interview or self completion of a questionnaire. The objective of this study was to determine whether SF-36 health status scores differ systematically by method of administration. METHOD: A randomized cross-over study was carried out on 210 new attenders at general medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology and urological out-patient departments. The outcome was the difference in SF-36 profiles comparing clinic based interviews with self completion at home by the same subjects. RESULTS: For seven of the eight variables of the SF-36 scores were lower in the self assessment, the differences being statistically significant in four of the eight comparisons. The largest differences were in role limitations due to emotional problems (difference 14.74, 95 per cent confidence interval (CI) 7.76-21.7) and social function (difference 7.21, 95 per cent CI 3.19-11.23). CONCLUSIONS: Clinic based interviews systematically exaggerate health status compared with self assessment. The difference is sufficiently large to underestimate the effectiveness of health service interventions when a clinic based pre-intervention and postal self completed follow-up design is used, unless adjustment is made for this systematic bias.  (+info)

Increasing response rates for mailed surveys of Medicaid clients and other low-income populations. (5/395)

Mailing surveys to low-income populations is often avoided because of concern about low response rates. In this study, the authors used a mailed survey of a low-income population to test whether $1.00 or $2.00 cash-response incentives were worth the expense and whether 2-day priority mail ($2.90 postage) would yield a sufficiently higher response rate than certified mail ($1.52 postage) to justify its cost. In 1994, 2,243 randomly selected families in subsidized health care programs in Pierce County, Washington, were randomly sent no incentive, $1.00, or $2.00 in the first of three mailings. For the third mailing, nonrespondents were randomly assigned to receive either certified or 2-day priority mail. After 4 weeks, the response rates were 36.7%, 48.1%, and 50.3% for the no-incentive, $1.00, and $2.00 groups, respectively. After three mailings, the cost per response was the lowest for the group that received $1.00. The response rate for the certified mailing (28.1%) was significantly higher than the rate for the more expensive priority mailing (21.7%). No incentive-related bias was detected. The authors concluded that the most efficient protocol for this low-income population was to use a $1.00 incentive in the first mailing and a certified third mailing.  (+info)

Screening for hand osteoarthritis (OA) using a postal survey. (6/395)

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine the feasibility of screening for hand osteoarthritis (OA) using a postal survey. METHODS: Men and women aged 40-79, selected at random from a general practice in Nottingham, were sent a postal survey concerning arm pain. Subjects were asked to identify presence of any nodes, based on a diagrammatic example, and to document specific distal (DIP) and proximal (PIP) nodes. One hundred and thirty-nine subjects were subsequently assessed by a nurse metrologist, blinded to the subjects assessment. Subject-observer agreement was measured by calculating unweighted kappa (kappa). In addition, sensitivity and specificity were calculated, taking observer-identified nodes as the 'gold standard'. Intraobserver reproducibility was assessed on 10 subjects with nodes. RESULTS: Intraobserver reproducibility was reasonable at all sites (kappa>/=0.59). Of the 56 subjects with observer-identified 'any nodes', 40 subjects had correctly identified them (sensitivity 71.4%); with three subjects incorrectly identifying nodes (specificity 96.4%). Corresponding kappa was 0.70. Subject-observer agreement was higher for presence/absence of any DIP nodes than PIP nodes (kappa=0.67 and 0.36 respectively). As with nodes overall, specificity was high (100% and 96.6% respectively). Agreement was generally poor for specific joint involvement. CONCLUSION: A postal survey is a useful screening tool for identifying subjects with nodes. Although sensitivity may not be sufficient to permit assessment of prevalence of hand OA in the community, it has potential applications in terms of identifying and defining cases for further study.  (+info)

Postal urine specimens: are they a feasible method for genital chlamydial infection screening? (7/395)

BACKGROUND: A United Kingdom (UK) screening programme for Chlamydia trachomatis has recently been announced. Pilot projects involving the opportunistic testing of women attending health facilities are due to commence in several sites. There is a danger that this approach will fail to obtain adequate population coverage. The alternative--true systematic population screening--is generally assumed to be unfeasible. Studies in Denmark using postal urine specimens have challenged this assumption. No such studies have been reported from the UK. AIM: To assess the potential of urine specimens sent by post as the basis for a UK population screening strategy for genital chlamydial infection. METHOD: Two hundred patients (100 men, 100 women) aged 18 to 45 years were randomly sampled from the list of one urban group practice. Subjects were mailed an explanatory letter, a urine sample container, a sexual lifestyle questionnaire, and a prepaid return envelope. Non-responders were contacted by telephone; persistent non-responders were visited at home. Samples were tested for Chlamydia by DNA amplification and enzyme immunoassay. RESULTS: Sixty-four (32%) subjects were no longer living at their GP registered address. Of the remaining 136, 126 (93%) responded to the survey and 113 (83%) accepted the request for a urine sample and completed a questionnaire. Acceptance rates were similar for men and women and across age groups. Four samples (3%) were Chlamydia positive. CONCLUSION: Home mailed urine specimen collection in conjunction with a self-completed postal questionnaire is feasible. This could provide a viable basis both for determining population Chlamydia prevalence and for a UK Chlamydia population screening strategy. Overall cost effectiveness of such a strategy will depend on the cost of the test used. Comparative performance characteristics of the different currently available tests in this setting have yet to be fully determined.  (+info)

Postal consent for upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. (8/395)

BACKGROUND: Standards for good practice in clinical risk management issued by the Clinical Negligence Scheme for Trusts indicate that "appropriate information is provided to patients on the risks and benefits of proposed treatment, and of the alternatives available before a signature on a consent form is sought". AIMS: To investigate the practicability and patient acceptability of a postal information and consent booklet for patients undergoing outpatient gastroscopy. METHODS: Information about gastroscopy procedure, personalised appointment details, and a carbonised consent form were compiled into a single booklet. This was mailed to patients well in advance of their endoscopic procedure. Patient satisfaction for this new process was assessed by questionnaire. RESULTS: 275 patients received a patient information booklet. Of these, 150 (54.5%) returned the consent form by post when they confirmed their attendance; 141 (94%) had signed the form, and the other nine requested further information. Of the remaining 125 booklets sent out, 115 (92%) forms were brought back on the day of the investigation having been previously signed. The remaining 10 (8%) required further information before signing the form. An audit of 168 patients was used to test reaction to the booklet and the idea of filling in the form before coming to hospital; 155 patients (92. 2%) reported the information given in the booklet to be "very useful", and all reported it to be "clear and understandable". CONCLUSION: A specifically designed patient information booklet with integral consent form is accepted by patients, and improves the level of understanding prior to the investigation being carried out.  (+info)

The EFTA Working Group on Postal Services is responsible for the legislation contained in Annex XI of the EEA Agreement.. The key legislation in this field is the Directive on Postal Services 97/67/EC which established a regulatory framework for European postal services. This Directive has been amended by Directive 2002/39/EC and Directive 2008/6/EC.. The overall objective of European postal policy is to ensure that efficient, reliable and high-quality postal services are available on at least five working days per week throughout the EU to all its citizens and businesses at affordable prices. The Postal Services Directive is a framework directive which gives a considerable degree of flexibility to the Member States, allowing them to adapt elements of domestic postal services to their own particular needs.. The third Postal Services Directive 2008/6/EC introduced the legal basis for the accomplishment of the internal market for postal services by providing for a last legislative step in the ...
Theres no lack of opinions in Washington about what the U.S. Postal Service should do to get out of its precarious financial situation. Cut this, add that, restructure these, and so on. But what about the public? What do Americans want - expect - from the Postal Service?. Our office commissioned focus groups across the nation, speaking with scores of people young and old, from rural areas and big cities. The goal was to gauge perceptions of the Postal Service to understand what Americans not only want from the Postal Service, but also need from it. The results are compiled and analyzed in our new white paper, What America Wants and Needs from the Postal Service.. One key finding was that (a), many participants mistakenly believed that the Postal Service receives taxpayer funding, and (b), when they learned the Postal Service is in fact self-funded, much like any other business, nearly everyones views and expectations began to soften, allowing for greater flexibility and compromise on ...
The Postal Services Commission, known as Postcomm, was a non-ministerial department of the Government of the United Kingdom charged with overseeing the quality and universal service of post in the United Kingdom. It was established in 2000 under the Postal Services Act 2000. Postcomm was merged into the communications regulator Ofcom on 1 October 2011.. Most of Postcomms role involved regulating Royal Mail (for letter delivery and to guarantee a universal postal service) and its two subsidiaries, Post Office Ltd and Parcelforce. Postcomm was also charged with the licensing of the UKs postal operators. It was set up alongside a sister organisation, Postwatch, an independent watchdog for postal services. Postwatch became part of Consumer Focus on 1 October 2008.. In May 2008, Postcomm called for the part-privatisation of Royal Mail to safeguard the universal service.[2] Following the Hooper Report into the future of the postal services industry, in October 2010, Business Secretary Vince Cable ...
What initially looked like an easy fix to save the Postal Service billions of dollars has suddenly turned into a political quagmire that will require members of Congress to wade deep into waters they had hoped to avoid. At issue is how, or if, to adjust the way the Postal Service pays into the Civil Service Retirement System. Last November, the Office of Personnel Management estimated that the Postal Service might be on the hook to overpay billions of dollars to cover workers pensions. OPM undertook the analysis at the request of the General Accounting Office, which has been trying to get a better handle on the Postal Services pension and health care liabilities. A GAO review of that work released Jan. 31 suggested that OPM made some broad assumptions that further complicate an already confounding situation. OPMs assessment found that the Postal Service would pay about $71 billion more than it actually needed to cover all the future costs of CSRS enrollees pensions. But OPMs analysis, among ...
Background.. The U.S. Postal Service is the nations largest civilian employer, with more than 850,000 employees at 40,000 locations. In FY 96, the U.S. Postal Service represented 29.8% of the total Federal workforce. Its lost time cases represented 42.2% of the Governments lost time cases and its total cases represented 48.9% of the Governments claims. U.S. Postal Service injuries and illnesses contribute disproportionately to the Federal Governments injury and illness rates. In the 1997 chargeback year, the workers compensation bill was $551.14 million, up from $547.14 million the previous chargeback year. U.S. Postal Service workers suffer one of the highest injury rates in the Federal Government. In 1996 alone, 78,671 employees were injured on the job -- more than nine injuries and illnesses for every hundred workers. The total injury and illness rate among U.S. Postal Service employees represents almost half of the rate for the entire Federal Government, even though fewer than one-third ...
During the last five years, there has been only one kind of news about the U.S. Postal Service - bad news.. The quasi-government agency took another hit last week when The New York Times published a story about delivery delays that are posing serious problems for businesses that use the service.. And these delays precede the full implementation of a mail processing center closure plan involving 229 centers as a cost-cutting measure. What will happen then?. The Postal Service, like many other businesses, is facing a sea change as people increasingly conduct their lives and business online.. But its worse than that. The agency doesnt get taxpayer support and must be financially self-sufficient - like a private business - but is subject to meddling by Congress.. The U.S. Constitution gave Congress the power to establish post offices, and federal lawmakers seem to want to be involved in many of the Postal Services business decisions.. For instance, the agency is under statutory mandate to deliver ...

The U.S. Postal Service, on the brink of default on a second multibillion-dollar payment it cant afford to pay, is sounding a new cautionary note that having squeezed out all the cost savings within its power, the mail agencys viability now lies almost entirely with Congress. For more than a year, the Postal Service has been seeking legislation that would allow it to eliminate Saturday mail delivery and reduce its $5 billion annual payment for future retiree health benefits. Since the House failed to act, the post office says its been seeking to reassure anxious customers that service will not be disrupted, even with cash levels running perilously low. Absolutely, we would be profitable right now, Donahoe told The Associated Press, when asked whether congressional delays were to blame for much of the postal losses, expected to reach a record $15 billion this year. Donahoe said the post office will hit a low point in cash next month but avert immediate bankruptcy due to a series of retirement
The United States Postal Service (USPS) is a government corporation responsible for providing mail delivery to individuals and businesses within the United States. Americans often refer to it as the Post Office. Its creation was specifically authorized by the Constitution[1] and it has the ability (through the Postal Regulatory Commission) to regulate the provision of all mail services in the US. Currently, this means that private companies can only process mail that USPS does not accept. This monopoly has come under fire, especially as the Postal Service has posted severe financial losses and raised rates as a result of the increasing cost of employee benefits. ...
The words Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds - although by no means an official creed or motto of the United States Postal Service - have long been associated with the American postman.

Eliots poem The Letter.[2] The USPS has an official mission statement: ...
On Oct. 16, 2012, Vernon Harrison, of Montgomery, Ala., was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiring to file false claims, mail fraud, aggravated identity theft and embezzlement from the mail, the Justice Department, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the U.S. Postal Service, Office of the Inspector General (OIG), announced today after the indictment was unsealed.. According to the indictment, Harrison was a U.S. Postal Service mail carrier who was part of a stolen identity refund fraud conspiracy. Members of the conspiracy filed false tax returns using stolen identities from various locations including the Northern District of Alabama. The fraudulent tax refunds were directed to debit cards that were mailed to addresses on Harrisons postal route in Montgomery, Ala. Harrison retrieved the debit cards from the mail and, for a fee, provided them to a co-conspirator. An indictment merely alleges that crimes have been committed, and the defendant is presumed innocent until ...

JULY 22, 2010. POSTAL FINANCIAL REFORM BILL CLEARS FIRST HURDLE. The House postal oversight subcommittee on Wednesday approved legislation to stabilize the finances of the Postal Service by reversing billions of dollars overpaid by USPS into the governments civil service pension fund and shifting those payments to satisfy future retiree health benefit obligations.. By an 8-1 vote, the subcommittee approved H.R. 5746, the United States Postal Services CSRS Obligation Modification Act of 2010, introduced by the panels chairman Stephen F. Lynch (D-MA).. The postal financial reform legislation now goes to the full committee - the House Oversight and Government Operations Committee - although the timing of the panels action on the bill is uncertain.. A committee vote could get pushed off until early September, with the start of the August Congressional recess looming late next week and the committee still awaiting the budget score on the bill from the Congressional Budget Office..

The Halfmoon fight centered around a new and somewhat secretive postal rule requiring new neighborhoods to have community, centralized mailboxes allowing for just one delivery stop. Door-to-door (or driveway-to-driveway) service is out for most new subdivisions - saving money and time for the financially strapped government agency. [...] there was a problem. Since Rolling Hills was approved by the town in 2007, long before the rule took effect, its developer never set aside land for community mailboxes. [...] all the existing houses in Rolling Hills receive traditional mailbox service - but postal officials said the new Ridge Wood homes would be treated differently. Why are (postal officials) changing the rules in the middle of the development? asked Richard Harris, director of planning in Halfmoon. Would anyone have believed that the Postal Service, which famously aided Western expansion by providing lifelines to remote settlements, would decide against delivery in an ordinary suburb? When I
GREAT FALLS - A former U. S. Postal Service worker who admitted going through mail and stealing cash and gift cards from envelopes was sentenced on Sept. 3 to two years of probation, fined $1,000 and ordered to pay $2,065 restitution, U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said today.. Amanda Holland, 38, of Sunburst, pleaded guilty in May to theft of mail by a postal employee and destruction of mail by a postal employee.. Chief U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris presided.. In court documents filed in the case, the prosecution said that Holland began working in January 2017 for the U.S. Postal Service as a part-time employee in the Sweet Grass and Sunburst post offices, where she assisted customers, processed money orders and sorted mail for delivery. In early 2019, the Postal Service received several reports from individuals indicating that cash and greeting cards sent through the Sweet Grass office did not reach their destinations. Some individuals reported that the envelopes were delivered but that they ...
Direct mail is a highly effective medium. In fact, its the most reliable and direct way to reach nearly every consumer with a home address. But every time you send a direct mail piece out into the cold, cruel world, theres a chance something bad will happen. Maybe you dont get the response you want. Perhaps the piece doesnt get delivered correctly. Its conceivable that a piece youve successfully mailed a dozen times just nose dives. There are countless ways for a mailer to meet an untimely demise. What do you do when it happens? Here are six simple steps for a direct mail autopsy to help you determine what went wrong so you can make your next mailing more successful. 1. Analyze the results. ...
The U.S. Postal Service has long lived on the financial edge, but it has never been as close to the precipice as it is today: The agency is so low on cash that it will not be able to make a $5.5 billion payment due this month and may have to shut down entirely this winter unless Congress takes emergency action to stabilize its finances. Our situation is extremely serious, the postmaster general, Patrick Donahoe, said in an interview. If Congress doesnt act, we will default. In recent weeks, Donahoe has been pushing a series of painful cost-cutting measures to erase the agencys deficit, which will reach $9.2 billion this fiscal year. They include eliminating Saturday mail delivery, closing up to 3,700 postal locations and laying off 120,000 workers, nearly one-fifth of the agencys workforce. The post offices problems stem from one hard reality: It is getting squeezed on both revenue and costs.

Fundamentally, the USPS is in a historic squeeze between technological change that has permanently decreased demand for its bread-and-butter product, first-class mail, and a regulatory structure that denies management the flexibility to adjust its operations to the new reality. [...] interest groups ranging from postal unions to greeting-card makers exert self-interested pressure on the USPSs ultimate overseer - Congress - insisting that whatever else happens to the Postal Service, aspects of the status quo they depend on get protected. Most of the money would come from a penny-per-letter permanent rate increase and from shifting postal retirees into Medicare (to which they already contributed through payroll deductions). The latter step would largely offset the financial burden of annually pre-funding retiree health care, thus addressing a long-standing complaint by the USPS and its unions.

If it clears the House, this measure would still have to get through the Senate - where someone is bound to point out that it amounts to the bare, bare minimum necessary to keep the Postal Service afloat, not comprehensive reform. Theres no change to collective bargaining at the USPS, a major omission considering that personnel accounts for 80 percent of the agencys costs. Also missing is any discussion of eliminating Saturday letter delivery. That common-sense change enjoys wide public support and would save the USPS $2 billion per year. But postal special-interest groups seem to have killed it, at least in the House. The emerging consensus around the bill is a sign that legislators are getting frightened about a politically embarrassing short-term collapse at the USPS - which is progress of a sort. It is not, however, a sign that theyre getting serious about transforming the postal system for the 21st century.. ...
