Nurses and nursing in primary medical care in England. (1/8459)

In 1974 we sent questionnaires on attachment and employment of nurses to 9214 general practices in England. There were 7863 replies (85%), of which 551 were excluded from the study. A total of 2654 nurses were directly employed by 24% (1774) of the practices, and 68% (4972) had attached nurses. Practices in health centres were larger and had greater nursing resources than those in other premises. We suggest that practices may employ nurses to compensate for ineffective nursing attachments, and we conclude that general-practice-employed nurses are becoming "professionalised".  (+info)

Clinical experience and choice of drug therapy for human immunodeficiency virus disease. (2/8459)

To determine if providers experienced in the management of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease preferred different treatment regimens than providers with less experience, we analyzed data from a national survey of primary care providers' preferred regimens for the management of 30 HIV-related medical conditions. We mailed questionnaires to 999 correct addresses of providers in > 20 cities in the United States in May 1996. We received 524 responses (response rate, 52%). We found a statistically significant association between the number of HIV-infected patients cared for by the provider and the likelihood that the provider would report prescribing highly active antiretroviral therapy and multidrug combinations for treatment of opportunistic infections. Providers with few HIV-infected patients were substantially less likely to report using new therapeutic regimens or new diagnostic tools. We concluded that the preferred regimens of experienced providers are more likely to be consistent with the latest information on treatment for HIV disease than are those of less experienced providers.  (+info)

The effect of race and sex on physicians' recommendations for cardiac catheterization. (3/8459)

BACKGROUND: Epidemiologic studies have reported differences in the use of cardiovascular procedures according to the race and sex of the patient. Whether the differences stem from differences in the recommendations of physicians remains uncertain. METHODS: We developed a computerized survey instrument to assess physicians' recommendations for managing chest pain. Actors portrayed patients with particular characteristics in scripted interviews about their symptoms. A total of 720 physicians at two national meetings of organizations of primary care physicians participated in the survey. Each physician viewed a recorded interview and was given other data about a hypothetical patient. He or she then made recommendations about that patient's care. We used multivariate logistic-regression analysis to assess the effects of the race and sex of the patients on treatment recommendations, while controlling for the physicians' assessment of the probability of coronary artery disease as well as for the age of the patient, the level of coronary risk, the type of chest pain, and the results of an exercise stress test. RESULTS: The physicians' mean (+/-SD) estimates of the probability of coronary artery disease were lower for women (probability, 64.1+/-19.3 percent, vs. 69.2+/-18.2 percent for men; P<0.001), younger patients (63.8+/-19.5 percent for patients who were 55 years old, vs. 69.5+/-17.9 percent for patients who were 70 years old; P<0.001), and patients with nonanginal pain (58.3+/-19.0 percent, vs. 64.4+/-18.3 percent for patients with possible angina and 77.1+/-14.0 percent for those with definite angina; P=0.001). Logistic-regression analysis indicated that women (odds ratio, 0.60; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.4 to 0.9; P=0.02) and blacks (odds ratio, 0.60; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.4 to 0.9; P=0.02) were less likely to be referred for cardiac catheterization than men and whites, respectively. Analysis of race-sex interactions showed that black women were significantly less likely to be referred for catheterization than white men (odds ratio, 0.4; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.2 to 0.7; P=0.004). CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that the race and sex of a patient independently influence how physicians manage chest pain.  (+info)

Record linkage as a research tool for office-based medical care. (4/8459)

OBJECTIVE: To explore the feasibility of linking records to study health services and health outcomes for primary care patients. DESIGN: A cohort of patients from the Family Medicine Centre at Mount Sinai Hospital was assembled from the clinic's billing records. Their health numbers were linked to the Ontario Hospital Discharge Database. The pattern of hospital admission rates was investigated using International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes for primary discharge diagnosis. A pilot case-control study of risk factor management for stroke was nested in the cohort. SETTING: Family medicine clinic based in a teaching hospital. PARTICIPANTS: A cohort of 19,654 Family Medicine Centre patients seen at least once since 1991. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Admission rates by age, sex, and diagnosis. Numbers of admissions for individual patients, time to readmission, and length of stay. Odds ratios for admission for cerebrovascular disease. RESULTS: The 19,654 patients in the cohort had 14,299 discharges from Ontario hospitals in the 4 years from 1992 to 1995, including 3832 discharges following childbirth. Some patients had many discharges: 4816 people accounted for the 10,467 admissions excluding childbirth. Excluding transfers between institutions, there were 4975 readmissions to hospital during the 4 years, 1392 (28%) of them within 28 days of previous discharge. Admissions for mental disorders accounted for the greatest number of days in hospital. The pilot study of risk factor management suggested that acetylsalicylic acid therapy might not be effective for elderly primary care patients with atrial fibrillation and that calcium channel blocker therapy might be less effective than other therapies for preventing cerebrovascular disease in hypertensive primary care patients. CONCLUSIONS: Record linkage combined with data collection by chart review or interview is a useful method for studying the effectiveness of medical care in Canada and might suggest interesting hypotheses for further investigation.  (+info)

Explicit guidelines for qualitative research: a step in the right direction, a defence of the 'soft' option, or a form of sociological imperialism? (5/8459)

Within the context of health service research, qualitative research has sometimes been seen as a 'soft' approach, lacking scientific rigour. In order to promote the legitimacy of using qualitative methodology in this field, numerous social scientists have produced checklists, guidelines or manuals for researchers to follow when conducting and writing up qualitative work. However, those working in the health service should be aware that social scientists are not all in agreement about the way in which qualitative work should be conducted, and they should not be discouraged from conducting qualitative research simply because they do not possess certain technical skills or extensive training in sociology, anthropology or psychology. The proliferation of guidelines and checklists may be off-putting to people who want to undertake this sort of research, and they may also make it even more difficult for researchers to publish work in medical journals. Consequently, the very people who may be in a position to change medical practice may never read the results of important qualitative research.  (+info)

Restructuring the primary health care services and changing profile of family physicians in Turkey. (6/8459)

A new health-reform process has been initiated by Ministry of Health in Turkey. The aim of that reform is to improve the health status of the Turkish population and to provide health care to all citizens in an efficient and equitable manner. The restructuring of the current health system will allow more funds to be allocated to primary and preventive care and will create a managed market for secondary and tertiary care. In this article, we review the current and proposed primary care services models and the role of family physicians therein.  (+info)

Physician management in primary care. (7/8459)

Minimal explicit consensus criteria in the management of patients with four indicator conditions were established by an ad hoc committee of primary care physicians practicing in different locations. These criteria were then applied to the practices of primary care physicians located in a single community by abstracting medical records and obtaining questionnaire data about patients with the indicator conditions. A standardized management score for each physician was used as the dependent variable in stepwise regression analysis with physician/practice and patient/disease characteristics as the candidate independent variables. For all physicians combined, the mean management scores were high, ranging from .78 to .93 for the four conditions. For two of the conditions, care of the normal infant and pregnant woman, the management scores were better for pediatricians and obstetricians respectively than for family physicians. For the other two conditions, adult onset diabetes and congestive heart failure, there were no differences between the management scores of family physicians and internists. Patient/disease characteristics did not contribute significantly to explaining the variation in the standardized management scores.  (+info)

Provision of primary care by office-based rheumatologists: results from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Surveys, 1991-1995. (8/8459)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the extent to which office-based rheumatologists provide primary care to patients without rheumatic diseases or provide principal care to patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: The National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey was used to determine national probability estimates of the nature and types of conditions treated by office-based rheumatologists in 1991-1995. At each of 1,074 patient visits, the rheumatologists recorded up to 3 diagnoses and 3 patient-reported reasons for the visit, as well as information on the treatments provided at the visit. RESULTS: In only 9.8% of new consultations and 11.9% of return visits was neither a rheumatic disease diagnosis nor a musculoskeletal complaint recorded, indicating that the rheumatologist was likely acting as a primary care provider at a minority of patient visits. Among continuing patients with RA, the patient's primary reason for the visit was something other than a musculoskeletal complaint in only 9.9% of visits, and any nonrheumatic complaint was recorded in 30.4% of visits, indicating that at only some visits was the rheumatologist acting as the principal caregiver. In addition, only 31.1% of visits included the provision of medication for a nonrheumatic condition. CONCLUSION: In 1991-1995, most visits to rheumatologists involved the provision of specialized or consultative care to patients with rheumatic diseases or musculoskeletal complaints, and few visits were made by patients without either indication. Provision of principal care by rheumatologists to patients with RA is not currently widespread.  (+info)

Written prescriptions of physical activity have increased in popularity. Such schemes have mostly been evaluated in terms of efficacy in clinical trials. This study reports on a physical activity prescription referral scheme implemented in routine primary health care (PHC) in Sweden. The aim of this study was to evaluate patients self-reported adherence to physical activity prescriptions at 3 and 12 months and to analyse different characteristics associated with adherence to these prescriptions. Prospective prescription data were obtained for the general population in 37 of 42 PHC centres in Östergötland County, during 2004. The study population consisted of 3300. The average adherence rate to the prescribed activity was 56% at 3 months and 50% at 12 months. In the multiple logistic regression models, higher adherence was associated with higher activity level at baseline and with prescriptions including home-based activities. Prescription from ordinary PHC staff yielded adherence in half of the

This policy synthesis identifies four major models for organizing primary healthcare that are relevant to the Canadian context. Two models fall into what can be broadly called a communityoriented approach, while the other two fall into what can be called a professional approach. The vision of community primary healthcare is to improve the health of specific geographically defined populations and to contribute to community development by providing a set of required medical, health, social, and community services. Within this vision, there are two types of models: the integrated community model and the nonintegrated community model. These models differ by their degree of integration into other parts of the healthcare system. Several characteristics of their resources, organizational structure, and practices reflect their varying degree of integration. The vision of professional primary healthcare is to deliver medical services to patients who seek these services, or to people who choose to ...

For much of the 19th century, primary health care for most people was a combination of folk and patent medicines and the occasional doctors visit. The vast majority of doctors were male. Midwifery was undertaken by women whose skills were recognised in the community, as well as by medical practitioners. Women provided informal health care to their families and to other women and children during times of illness. Families also diagnosed and treated themselves. Doctors scientific claims were based as much on their educational and social status as their ability to cure. They were primarily called to ease the pain of the dying, and during other crises such as accidents, which were an everyday reality in unsafe workplaces.. The rich used doctors more frequently. Elite doctors treated the wealthy in their own homes, but many doctors were more like pharmacists, making much of their income from dispensing medicines, rather than consultations. Most doctors were general practitioners, even if they ...

Objective: This study aims to examine the circumstances associated with patients tendencies to recommend a primary care centre, based on four hypotheses, the initial contacts quality, care relationship continuity, treatment encounter responsiveness and whether the significance of encounter responsiveness differs depending on whether the patient has been seeing a nurse or physician. Design: The study is based on the patient self-reported responses, retrieved from the Swedish National Patient Survey. The design is cross-sectional, and data were analysed using a binary logistic regression. Setting: Data were collected from three primary healthcare centres in the region of Västra Götaland, Sweden. Participants: A total of 362 patients (62% females) having visited any of three publicly run healthcare centres in September 2010 constitute the analytical sample. Participants were fairly evenly distributed across all age groups. Main Outcome Measures: Recommendation was captured by patients binary ...

Ministry of Public Health, Bangkok, Thailand PRIMARY HEALTH CARE IN THAILAND The problem of under-utilization of health centres and hospitals in rural Thailand led to the initiation of a pilot project on primary health care (PHC) in Sarapee District, Chiang Mai Province, in 1969. The project was designed mainly to extend various health services to cover a greater portion of the population in the area. The initial estimation for coverage of existing health services was below 20 per cent of the total population at that time. Recognizing that the health-service delivery structure was not covering all the health and medical demands of the community, the project organizers strategy was to train people selected by the community to function as intermediaries between the peripheral tambon (community of villages) health officers and the community, adding to the existing health-service delivery on a voluntary basis. Evaluation of the pilot project revealed that there was increased coverage of the ...
Our analysis provides strong evidence that CBPHC can improve neonatal health in low-income settings. Of the studies with strong experimental research designs, over 70% showed a positive neonatal health impact. Although many of these studies were smaller scale pilots or efficacy studies, it demonstrates that CBPHC can be an essential tool where access to facilities is limited and many births take place at home. In these settings, access to antenatal care is often limited; for example, only 49% of pregnant women in sub-Saharan Africa obtain four antenatal care visits [1]. Furthermore, among the 75 countries with the greatest burden of neonatal mortality, the median national coverage of interventions that are important for improving neonatal mortality is quite low: 65% for skilled attendant at delivery, 28% for postnatal visits for newborns, and 50% for early initiation of breastfeeding [14]. Community-based approaches will be essential for the near term in order to achieve universal coverage of ...

Background: The translation of new knowledge, such as research findings, new tools or methods into health care practice has gained increased interest in recent years. Important factors that determine implementation outcome have been identified, and models and checklists to be followed in planning as well as in carrying out an implementation process have been produced. However, there are still knowledge gaps regarding what approach should be used in which setting and for which problems. Primary health care (PHC) in Sweden is an area where there is a paucity of research regarding implementation of new methods into practice. The aim of the thesis was to apply theory in the study of the implementation of an innovation in Swedish PHC, and identify factors that influenced outcome.. Methods: The study was performed using a quasi-experimental design, and included six PHC units, two from each one of three county councils in the southeast part of Sweden. A computer-based lifestyle intervention tool (CLT) ...
Background: In Namibia, studies showed that HIV/AIDS affects youth, especially the under 24 years age group. At the same time the pregnancy rate is also high by age 19. Interestingly, in Andara district several reports from staff working in the reproductive services have indicated that adolescent girls, who would seem to be taking responsibility in one sphere of their sexual lives by protecting themselves against unwanted pregnancy, were however not using condoms to protect themselves from HIV infection. Study Aim and Objectives: To describe the knowledge, attitude and behaviour related to HIV/AIDS amongst female adolescents who are accessing the primary health care (PHC) services for contraception. Specific objectives were to describe the knowledge of female adolescents who are accessing the PHC services for contraception about the modes of transmission and prevention of HIV/AIDS, to assess their attitude with regards to condom use, abstinence and being faithful to one uninfected partner, also ...
Therefore, it is crucial to identify as precisely as possible patients most likely to benefit from these programs. Finding high-risk patients in computerized medical record systems, using predictive modelling, has been evaluated in care management trials in the USA and is seen to have better results than case finding by doctors or patient surveys [12, 13]. These software models rely on clinically- and cost-similar disease categories called diagnostic cost groups (DCG) [14] or adjusted clinical groups (ACG) [15] that are generated from insurance claims data.. In Germany, chronic heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) were among the 20 most frequent causes for hospital admission in 2008 [16]. All three conditions are stated as being ambulatory care sensitive conditions (ACSC), meaning that primary care has a dominating role in preventing hospital admissions for these conditions [17]. Hospitalisations may be avoidable by coordinated ...

People-centered care means shifting care to the community, and even bringing it directly to individuals when possible. And the Sayana® Press (DMPA-SC) puts health directly in womens hands. Its an all-in-one contraceptive device that combines a plastic bulb of medication with a single-use needle. A single injection-which can be administered by women themselves-prevents pregnancy for three months.. Previous research by PATH and partners has found that women can self-administer DMPA-SC safely and effectively, that they like doing so, and that self-injection enables them to continue using the method longer than injections from providers.. But how do women best learn to self-inject outside of research studies, in routine primary health care settings? Uganda paved the way, becoming the first country in the world to offer contraceptive self-injection outside of a research setting. Taking a human-centered design approach to identify best practices and user needs, as well as health system realities, ...

at Radboud University Nijmegen in The Netherlands; Professor of Primary Health Care Research at the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia; and Past President of WONCA. On a global scale, research in family medicine and primary health care appears to develop slowly and hesitantly, certainly in light of its contribution to education. This difficult state of affairs is mirrored in substantial international differences in research facilities: few countries can boast the visionary funding policies of Canada or Australia, or the inclusive research programming of universities in the Netherlands and the UK. The research grass often looks greener on the other side of a border, and this tends to trigger contemplation of what might have been - along with lamentations of deprived opportunities.. Yet, there IS a parallel primary health care research reality to enjoy. Italian family physicians have been able to publish their research in the highest impact journals, Brazilian universities are ...

Objective- To evaluate the practicability and efficacy of a structured treatment and teaching program for non-insulin-treated type II diabetic patients in routine primary health care.. Research Design and Methods- All physicians (n = 139) and their office staffs in Hamburg, Germany, who had participated in a special training course from 1 April 1991 to 31 December 1991 were contacted for a standardized interview. A random sample of 17 of these offices was selected for office visits during which the documented data of all patients who had received the standardized treatment and teaching in the same period were collected and evaluated.. Results- The program was well received by the physicians, and the data collected on 179 patients (5.1 mo median after the intervention) demonstrated the efficacy of the program at the treatment level: reduction of body weight (mean 2.8 kg, P , 0.0001) and HbA1c levels (from 8.11 ± 1.68 to 7.47 ± 1.64%, P , 0.0001) was substantial.

Myocardial infarction is difficult to detect early. Due to delayed and uncertain diagnosis, physicians are unable to take treatment decisions during the golden hour, i.e. before commencement of necrosis. These delays cause incapacitation and death of the patient. We propose to build a smart instrument that will rapidly diagnose myocardial Infarction. We will employ a microcantilever-based bio-sensing system, to detect early cardiac markers (eg. myoglobin) that are released in the blood after an MI event. The instrument will be highly sensitive, highly selective and would provide a rapid diagnosis. The instrument can be used even by a qualified nurse at a rural primary healthcare centre in India.. ...

Understanding the complex interplay between the development and persistence of depression over the longer term, psychological, social and physical factors and the health service use and treatment patterns is crucial if we are to plan better models of care to cope with the increasing burden that depression and related disorders is placing on people experiencing the condition, their social networks and the health care system.. Despite the growing interest in depression being managed as a chronic illness in primary care; this review identified only 17 observational studies of depression in primary care, most of which have been conducted in Europe or the US. The striking finding of this review is the small sample size of many studies, the small numbers in the cohort with depression and the short length of follow-up. The studies provide information on the nature and course of depression for around 7,500 people receiving routine primary care. Of the 17 studies, nine studies followed almost 3,000 ...
This is a hard letter to write, because most of us, including myself, would like to see government as on our side, especially where it comes to health matters.. Over the past few months it has become clear that the IHA has carried out a deliberate and long term plan to deprive Kaslo of not only its doctors and emergency services, but most likely the final goal for the IHA will be the elimination of our hospital altogether.. Two weeks before the meeting on November 12, called by the IHA, our family received a letter from the Ministry of Health saying that by mutual agreement Kaslo and the IHA have decided that it would be in the best interests of Kaslo to have a robust primary healthcare centre from 9 to 5, Monday to Friday.. This was a lie. There was no agreement from Kaslo on that, but that letter (which was sent by the Ministry to many people in the area) exposed the IHAs intentions such that they felt it necessary to call a meeting in November canceling our ER services.. Its not the IHA ...
While the majority of cases may not be preventable, significant morbidity can be averted by early recognition and treatment, highlighting the need to strengthen the delivery of health care at primary health centers in such resource challenged environments. Practitioners caring for musculoskeletal problems in such environments will necessarily be confronted with neglected hip sepsis, and the hope is that the information in this monograph will help to formulate a treatment plan for these challenging cases ...
INTRODUCTION. Diabetes is a worldwide epidemic, causing a high disease and economic burden. Type 2 diabetes, the most common form of diabetes, is associated with overweight and obesity and an unfavourable lifestyle, including unhealthy diet and physical inactivity. Over the last two decades, many large-scale experimental trials have shown that type 2 diabetes can be delayed or prevented by lifestyle modification in high-risk subjects. This evidence has been translated and implemented in interventions in real-world settings, however, no (cost)effective diabetes prevention programme in Dutch primary health care was available at the start of the current project in 2008. Therefore the SLIMMER study (SLIM iMplementation Experience Region Noord- en Oost-Gelderland) was started in which the SLIM intervention, revealing a 47% diabetes risk reduction, was translated to Dutch primary health care. The aim of this thesis was to implement the SLIMMER intervention in Dutch primary health care and to evaluate ...
Primary health care is one of the most cost-effective ways to equitably reduce morbidity and mortality and improve population health, but the realization of these potential benefits is dependent on having adequate numbers of competent, motivated human resources to deliver primary health care services. Read on for more information on the central role of health workers in
This is the last in a series of six articles describing approaches to and topics for health needs assessment, and how the results can be used effectively. In most developing countries, the evolution of health services has been dominated by Western models of health care. These have rarely taken into account how local people explain illness, seek advice, or use traditional healing methods. The emphasis has been on hospitals and curative care rather than on trying to address local health needs equitably and effectively. Since the Alma Ata declaration on primary health care, more attention has been given to increasing coverage of basic services and preventing common diseases. However, the bias in resource allocation towards secondary care and urban areas remains. ...
Obesity is a chronic and multi-factorial disease and one of the most important causes of morbidity and premature mortality worldwide.. Currently, over a billion people are overweight and half a billion are obese. In more than half of the EU countries one in two individuals are overweight or obese. The epidemic is still increasing in many European countries, whereas in some it seems to have slowed down. In the United States, obesity has been declared the number one health threat.. Non-surgical and non-pharmacotherapeutical treatment options include diet, exercise, behaviour modification and psychological support. The effect size has been reported with a single digit weight loss in kilograms which can be maintained. In contrast to experimental settings, implementing life-style interventions in routine primary care that reduce morbidity at population level have proven to be difficult.. There are only very limited pharmacotherapeutic treatment options. Overall, pharmacotherapy has played a minor ...
Raising doubts about claims that the NRHM has been reaching out to lakhs in rural areas, a survey of 41 primary health care centres catering to 225 villages across five districts in Maharashtra revealed gross irregularities in the supply of medicine.

This systematic review and meta-analysis found a marginal effect for primary care-based early interventions for pediatric obesity with regard to BMI reduction. To put the finding in context, for a 10-year-old girl with a BMI at the 90th percentile, the effect is equivalent to a difference between the intervention and control groups of 1 kg over a 0- to 3-year follow-up period. Moreover, the change in z-BMI found in this study of -0.04 compares with an average effect found in studies of family-based behavioral weight management treatments of -0.37.35 Because a BMI z score reduction of 0.5 to 0.6 is needed to be sure of clear fat reduction and associated health benefit,36 the approach examined in the reviewed studies is considered to be generally ineffective.. Subgroup analyses, although underpowered, found no differences based on participant age; whether the child or parent participated in the intervention; the intensity, duration, or type of intervention; the type of provider delivering the ...
