Patient referral outcome in gonorrhoea and chlamydial infections. (1/107)

OBJECTIVE: To describe the outcome of patient referral at the STD clinic of the University Hospital Rotterdam. To study characteristics of heterosexual index patients and partnerships related to referral outcome. METHODS: In 1994, patients with gonorrhoea and chlamydia were referred to public health nurses for interview and patient referral. Referral outcome was classified as "verified" if partners attended the STD clinic and as "believed" if partners were said to have attended elsewhere. RESULTS: Of 454 patients, 250 (55%) participated in the study. The outcome of patient referral for the 502 eligible partners was 103 (20.5%) verified referrals, 102 (20%) believed referrals, and 297 (59%) with unknown follow up. Of the 103 partners examined, 43 had an STD of which 63% reported no symptoms. The contact finding ratio was higher for chlamydia patients and heterosexual men. Also, referral was more effective for index patients with recent sexual contact, with follow up visits to the public health nurse, for men who were not commercial sex worker (CSW) clients, and, to a lesser degree, for Dutch patients and patients who sometimes used condoms. For steady partners, referral was improved if the last sexual contact was more recent. Casual partners visited the clinic more often if sexual contact occurred more than once, if the last contact was more recent, if they were older, and if they were Dutch. CONCLUSIONS: Patient referral was more effective for certain groups, such as chlamydia patients and steady partners, but was inadequate for others, including CSW and their clients, other "one night stands", young partners, and ethnic minorities.  (+info)

Preparing currently employed public health nurses for changes in the health system. (2/107)

OBJECTIVES: This article describes a core public health nursing curriculum, part of a larger project designed to identify the skills needed by practicing public health workers if they are to successfully fill roles in the current and emerging public health system. METHODS: Two focus groups of key informants, representing state and local public health nursing practice, public health nursing education, organizations interested in public health and nursing education, federal agencies, and academia, synthesized material from multiple sources and outlined the key content for a continuing education curriculum appropriate to the current public health nursing workforce. RESULTS: The skills identified as most needed were those required for analyzing data, practicing epidemiology, measuring health status and organizational change, connecting people to organizations, bringing about change in organizations, building strength in diversity, conducting population-based intervention, building coalitions, strengthening environmental health, developing interdisciplinary teams, developing and advocating policy, evaluating programs, and devising approaches to quality improvement. CONCLUSIONS: Collaboration between public health nursing practice and education and partnerships with other public health agencies will be essential for public health nurses to achieve the required skills to enhance public health infrastructure.  (+info)

Low-cost on-the-job peer training of nurses improved immunization coverage in Indonesia. (3/107)

In Indonesia responsibility for immunizations is placed on local government health centres and on the nurses who provide the immunizations at each centre. An on-the-job peer training programme for these nurses, which was designed to improve the immunization performance of poorly performing health centres in terms of coverage and practice in Maluku province, was evaluated. Experienced immunization nurses were sent to health centres where nurses were inexperienced or performing poorly; the experienced nurses spent 1-2 weeks providing on-the-job training for the less experienced ones. An evaluation of the 13 centres that participated in the programme and the 95 that did not found that the programme increased both immunization coverage and the quality of practice. Coverage of diphtheria/pertussis/tetanus (DPT), polio, and measles vaccinations rose by about 39% in all 13 participating centres when compared with non-participating centres, and by about 54% in the 11 centres that had a functioning transportation system during the year after training. These results reflect increases in the actual number of doses given and improvements in the accuracy of reports. Potential threats to the study's validity were examined and found not to be significant. The out-of-pocket cost of the training programme was about US$ 53 per trainee or about US$ 0.05 per additional vaccine reported to have been given. The marginal cost per additional fully immunized child was estimated to be US$ 0.50.  (+info)

A national general practice census: characteristics of rural general practices. (4/107)

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study was to describe, using a national census, the characteristics of rural general practices and compare these with city and town general practices. METHODS: A previously piloted, anonymous but linked, questionnaire was issued to all GPs in Ireland. A liaison network covering the country was developed to increase the response rate. Respondents were asked to designate the location of their main surgery as being city (>20 000 population), town (>5000) or rural (<5000). Each responding practice was asked to nominate one partner to complete a specific section on practice information. RESULTS: Completed individual questionnaires were returned from 2093 GPs (86% response rate). Information on 1429 practice centres was provided; 488 (34%) of these were designated as city, 405 (28%) as town and 536 (38%) as rural. Rural practices reported fewer private patients (P < 0.001) and more socio-economically deprived patients (P < 0.001) than those in towns or cities. The mean number (SD) of total scheduled hours per average week per GP was 77.95 (37.0) for city practices, 80.6 (35.9) for town and 103.6 (39.0) for rural (P < 0.001). Rural practices are more likely, in comparison with those in cities and towns, to have attached staff working from purpose-built premises which are publicly owned. Rural practices also have more contacts with members of the primary care team such as Public Health Nurses, and the quality of these contacts is described more positively. The range of available services is broadly similar, with emergency medical equipment being available more frequently in rural practices. CONCLUSION: This study suggests that rural practitioners and their practices differ from their urban counterparts in many important aspects. Consideration should be given to the development of formal under- and postgraduate rural general practice programmes to prepare new, and continue to enthuse present, rural GPs.  (+info)

Difference between consciousness of intervention for improving lifestyle by public health nurses and recipients of a company health check. (5/107)

Improving an unhealthy lifestyle decreases risk of incidence and death of lifestyle-related diseases. Consultation about a healthy lifestyle to recipients of health checkups conducted by public health nurses is one method for such improvement. The objective in the present study was to investigate the difference between consciousness of intervention by (1) the public health nurses who conducted consultations with recipients of health checkups and (2) the recipients who were consulted by the public health nurses. Data on 1,370 male white collar workers who underwent health checks were analyzed. When public health nurses determined that recipients required health consultation regarding lifestyle from the health checkup, they consulted with the recipients regarding improvement of lifestyle. The consultation regarding lifestyle included abstinence from smoking, drinking in moderation, exercise, and eating. The results of the analysis regarding difference in consciousness of the intervention by the public health nurses and the recipients show that (1) most drinkers did not think they were being discouraged to drink despite intervention by the public health nurses and (2) the smokers and the subjects with no habitual physical exercise tend to think that they were being consulted even though the public health nurses did not intervene regarding smoking and exercise.  (+info)

Emergency preparedness training for public health nurses: a pilot study. (6/107)

The Columbia Center for Public Health Preparedness, in partnership with the New York City Department of Health, recently developed an emergency preparedness training program for public health workers. A pilot training program was conducted for a group of school health nurses and evaluated using a pre/posttest design. A surprising finding was that 90% of the nurses reported at least one barrier to their ability to report to duty in the event of a public health emergency. The most frequently cited barriers included child/elder care responsibilities, lack of transportation, and personal health issues. These findings suggest that it may be prudent to identify and address potential barriers to public health workforce responsiveness to ensure the availability of the workforce during emergencies.  (+info)

Improving breastfeeding knowledge, attitudes, and practices of WIC clinic staff. (7/107)

OBJECTIVE: This study was conducted to assess the impact of a breastfeeding promotion clinic environment project implemented by the state of Mississippi on breastfeeding knowledge, attitudes, and practices of WIC clinic staff. METHODS: Thirteen pairs of matched intervention and comparison WIC clinics participated in the study. Clinical and administrative staff completed pre-test and post-test self-administered questionnaires in 1998 and 1999. RESULTS: A total of 397 staff members provided pre-test data, and 277 staff members provided post-test data. Before project implementation, the intervention and comparison groups were similar overall. The majority of staff had positive attitudes/beliefs about breastfeeding, but gaps in knowledge and practices were noted. Post-test data showed that the project improved knowledge, attitudes/beliefs, and confidence/practice of intervention clinic staff. CONCLUSIONS: Clinic environment projects, which combine physical improvements and staff training, are effective in promoting support for breastfeeding among public health clinic staff. Similar interventions may contribute to the overall effectiveness of breastfeeding promotion programs.  (+info)

Common ground in general-practitioner and health-visitor training--an experimental course. (8/107)

There is still no universally agreed upon definition of family (Kaakinen, Hanson, and Denham, 2010). Roles of community health workers to SHIELD the vulnerable25. As the roles of public health nurses as advocates, collaborators, educators, partners, policy-makers, and researchers evolve in the area of community health promotion and prevention, greater emphasis on community participatory and ethnographic approaches in PHN education will provide benefits to students at the generalist and advanced practice levels (Zandee et al., 2010).

They go to patients homes, community centers, hospice facilities and to long-term care facilities. Conclusion and recommendations
This study investigated self-efficacy in breastfeeding support among public health nurses (PHNs) working at maternal and child health (MCH) services in Japanese municipalities, and its related factors such as education, working experience, breastfeeding experience, and postgraduate/continuous education. Directors of the MCH divisions were requested to select one PHN to answer the self-report questionnaires sent. The questionnaires were collected from October 2010 to January 2011. Of the 1750 questionnaires sent, 831 were returned (response rate: 47.5%); 102 were excluded from analysis because of missing data (valid response rate: 41.7%). After adjusting the weights of PHN sampling and collection rates by prefecture and population size, Model 1 of the multiple regression analysis showed that the self-efficacy in breastfeeding support was significantly higher in large/urban municipalities (β = 0.13) and in the Kanto district. Model 2 revealed that self-efficacy was significantly associated with working

Beth, however, does seem to embody the community spirit of public health. She took not one but two pay cuts in order to serve her community in the way she feels a public health nurse should. When Beth finished nursing school, she had to take a high-paying job as a pulmonary nurse at Athens Regional because, though she really wanted to work in public health, health departments at the time didnt hire new grads. So she bided her time at ARHC until an entry-level job opened up in Jackson Co. She worked there a few years and even got promoted, but when an entry-level job opened up in Madison Co., she took it and another pay-cut. Beth believes that the community is best served by a public health nurse that lives in that community, so she applied for the demotion in order to work in the county where she lived. Sure, working close to home must have had personal advantages for Beth, but it seems to me that she wouldnt take another pay-cut just to shorten her commute by a few minutes. She had greater ...

Many of the cases they currently are treating were likely latent for a long time before patients began showing symptoms.. When active cases show up, patients go through at least six months of directly observed treatment. The average time is nine months.. Public health nurse Julie Winner said latent cases often become active when the patient is older, and immunity is lowered or have contracted another disease.. Drug resistance can be triggered by incomplete treatment, which is why public health nurses visit a patient every day on average for about nine months, to provide directly observed treatment (DOT).. The goal is to make sure that somebody does get the right medication for the whole treatment to prevent the bacteria to become fully resistant, Lees said. Thats part of the reason we do DOT, to make sure resistance (doesnt occur). ...

There are other anomalies in postgraduate nurse education. For instance, registered nurse 12 months post-qualifying with a BSc (Hons) Nursing, embarks on a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (SCPHN) programme. She has limited experience as a registered nurse and no experience of school health nursing, and yet commences the programme at Masters level. In the same group, a school health nurse with more than 25 years experience in the job, is admitted for the BSc SCPHN, as she did not have the academic credits for Masters-level study. The result is a nurse graduating with an MSc in school health nursing with limited experience, and a very experienced practitioner with a BSc. In addition, the incongruity in the level of study meant that the practice teacher supporting the student through her MSc had lower academic qualifications than the student. It doesnt take much imagination to consider the disquiet among the students and practitioners involved. ...
Public Health Nurses working in the HL program are guided by the principles of Comprehensive School Health.

This program aims to provide interventions which will support students before they are in crisis, and which will help students to acquire basic health knowledge that will support healthy decision making. Ultimately, this will help reduce the costs for curative services by focusing on physical and emotional health promotion and disease prevention. As well, this will enhance the ability of students to be successful in their learning and other activities..

Adenomyosis is where endometrial tissue, the tissue that normally lines the womb, grows inside the wall of the womb. It is not the same as endometriosis, a condition where parts of endometrial tissue escape the womb and implant on organs outside it. However, many women with endometriosis also have adenomyosis, the cause of adenomyosis is unknown.. Usually adenomyosis affects the posterior wall of the uterus. Most commonly a woman with this condition experience the symptoms like heavy, prolonged or excessive bleeding during menstruation and periods with severe pain. Depending on the severity of disease and its levels of penetration into the uterine walls, the amount of cramps and bleeding varies.. Symptoms: Much of the time, a woman has few or no symptoms. However, as the condition worsens, many women begin to be troubled with heavy menstrual bleeding and increasing cramps. On physical examination, a soft, boggy enlargement of the uterus may be detected. During examination, an unusual type of ...

Peterborough Public Health is mandated by Ontarios Health Promotion and Protection Act (HPPA) to detect and effectively address threats to your health, as they arise. We have your back, and you probably dont even realize it. Most of our work is invisible - it happens every day, round the clock, weekends as well as weekdays without you even noticing. But once in a while, our health protection efforts come to light, as was the case recently with our closure of a dental clinic because of a lapse in infection prevention and control practices.. Threats to human health come in all shapes and sizes, so a variety of tools and strategies are necessary. Sometimes our behind-the-scenes work takes the form of a Public Health Nurse responding to a human case of a disease like TB or bacterial meningitis to make sure their contacts are safe and the infection does not spread. If there is a vaccine available, we may go to a school or other site to offer immunizations in order to protect contacts. Sometimes it ...
Riverside County Fire Chief John R. Hawkins adds, I urge every adult to constantly monitor their children. We have two eyes and they are to see and watch, particularly our children. Child drownings can be prevented by watching our children. Lets all make a pledge to prevent every drowning.. So far this year, three children have died from drowning and 20 other children have been injured from submersion or near-drowning accidents. Some of these cases were children swimming in back yard pools, Jacuzzis and community/apartment pools. Public health and county fire department officials remind parents and guardians how quickly tragedy can strike when youngsters are in or around water. The public service announcement video, which features Public Health Nurse Carolina Hernandez and CAL FIRE Captain Fernando Herrera, offers viewers tips on how to keep children safe near pools, such as installing a security fence and assigning a water watcher, who is the designated person responsible for keeping an ...

Source: Washington Post, March 16, 2003. Smallpox Campaign Taxing Health Resources Program Siphons Funds, Staffing From Other Projects, State and Local Officials Say By Ceci Connolly, Washington Post Staff Writer. As they rush to answer President Bushs call to vaccinate millions of emergency workers against smallpox, state and local health officials say they have stopped virtually all other counterterrorism efforts and in many cases have begun trimming services such as prenatal care, AIDS prevention, water testing and tuberculosis tracking.. In communities such as suburban Philadelphia and downtown Memphis, public health nurses have put childhood immunizations, new mother visits and diabetes screening on hold while they prepare smallpox vaccination clinics.. In the Oklahoma health department, all of the approximately 20 bioterrorism experts are assigned to the smallpox program, a requirement that has halted preparations for handling anthrax, plague and other deadly germs..

The first day of school is right around the corner and the Kern County Public Health Department is making sure your child has a healthy school school year. The Department was holding its annual back to school immunization clinic for children at the Veterans Memorial Building in East Bakersfield. According to a public health nurse, this clinic is necessary for most students going back to school. Children entering kindergarten through seventh grade need booster doses of vaccine, especially the whooping cough which is around and circulating in our community all the time. So thats why its important and it just prevents kids from getting diseases that are vaccine preventable, said Ann Walker. The only paperwork you need to bring is the childs insurance card and immunization records. If the student is not with the parent, they will need to bring a note, an ID from the parent, or any kind of paperwork that proves the student can receive the departments services. The department says they take ...
Your child has been found to have a positive skin test for tuberculosis (TB). Your childs chest x-ray shows no evidence of TB dis-ease at this time. Your child has no physical findings to suggest TB disease. The positive TB skin test means your child is infected with the TB germ, but it hasnt caused illness. Your child may need medications for an extended length of time (to be determined by a doctor who specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of TB) to treat the infection and to prevent your child from getting sick from the TB disease. Where did you child get TB infection? Children who have TB infection were exposed to a person with active TB disease in their lung. It is critical the source of your childs TB germ be found as soon as possible to prevent others from getting sick. The public health nurse will determine who needs to be tested. Testing will be done at the local health department at no cost. People who have positive skin tests or have symptoms of TB will need to have a chest ...
Center for Health Reporting, Analysis, John Gonzales, Posted: January 2, 2013. In the roughest neighborhoods of Oakland, Sandra Tramiel carries a baby scale in her knapsack as she undertakes a profound mission: saving Alameda Countys black children from death before their first birthday.. Tramiel is a public health nurse, a foot soldier in a decades-long battle waged here and across the country to reduce the disproportionately high death rate of African-American newborns.. In Alameda County, which has the highest proportion of African Americans in the state, there is new evidence that efforts like Tramiels home visits are paying off.. The rate of black infant deaths is on the decline, having dropped to 8.05 per 1,000 live births between 2007 and 2010, one of the lowest rates in the state.. The statewide black infant mortality rate of 9.5 deaths per 1,000 live births in 2010, the most recent year for which data is available, is still agonizingly high, but for the first time the number is below ...

On Tuesday Nov.19 the North Attleboro Board of Health will hold a meeting with the Department of Public Works. It will be the first public discussion on the fluoride situation since the story was first reported in The Sun Chronicle on Nov.2.. Its easy to be an armchair quarterback and criticize public employees for doing/not doing something, so I generally try not to do that. But in this case, its unavoidable. It was a serious lapse in judgment for Mark Hollowell to keep the failure of the DPWs water fluoridation equipment in 2011 a secret. As if that werent bad enough, the equipment failure was kept secret for eight years. It might never have come to light if Anne Marie Fleming, director of the Health Department and Public Health Nurse, hadnt noticed the low level of fluoride in a MA DEP water quality report that she received in August 2019.. Making a bad situation even worse are the comments made by Board of Public Works Chair Michael Thompson at the DPW meeting on 9/18/19. Rather than ...

Wittmeier and Mulder wrote that it is crucial that primary care providers and other clinicians discuss container baby syndromes components with their expectant patients before delivery.. It is imperative for prevention messaging to begin during pregnancy and be reinforced during the postpartum period… It would be ideal if parents/guardians could receive this information first from prenatal educators and prenatal care providers (midwives, obstetricians, family doctors). Postpartum nurses could reinforce this information before discharge from the hospital, and public health nurses could explain the importance of such prevention activities and demonstrate strategies in the home environment, they wrote.. Ideally, information pertaining to preventing the development of a head positional preference could [also] be delivered by family physicians and pediatricians who see infants during the first few weeks of life, Wittmeier and Mulder added.. Grisez said there are no guidelines to steer ...
A small part of my work experience as a public health nurse was seeing patients in several of our satellite clinics. Our pediatric patients were first generation Americans whose parents were born and immigrated from Latin America, Asia and Africa. Their moms and dads were exceptionally compliant with well child clinic appointments; these children were almost always immunized completely and in a timely manner. The parents always called for appointments to get their children caught up on their immunizations. Perhaps these parents *knew* a lot more about the benefits of having their kids immunized according to the Recommended Childhood Vaccine Schedule ...

Womens health nurse practitioners (NPs) provide comprehensive care to women, supporting their general health across the lifespan. They also provide sexual and reproductive health care to men.
One hundred and thirty two studies were included in the review. The majority were small-scale academic studies biased towards white, adult service users. Few studies provided evidence of user collaboration. Service users regard mental health nursing as a multi-faceted role delivering practical and social support alongside more formal psychological therapies. Service users report inadequate information provision, poor inter-professional communication and a lack of opportunities for collaborative care. Service users perceive inpatient mental health nurses as particularly inaccessible.. ...

UNC News Services. CHAPEL HILL The largest, most comprehensive study ever done comparing the effectiveness of hand hygiene products shows that nothing works better in getting rid of disease-causing viruses than simply washing one s hands with good old-fashioned soap and water.. Among the viruses soapy hand washing flushes down the drain is the one that causes the common cold. Other removable viruses cause hepatitis A, acute gastroenteritis and a host of other illnesses.. A separate key finding was that waterless handwipes only removed roughly 50 percent of bacteria from volunteer subjects hands.. We studied the efficacy of 14 different hand hygiene agents in reducing bacteria and viruses from the hands, said Emily E. Sickbert-Bennett, a public health epidemiologist with the University of North Carolina Health Care System and the UNC School of Public Health. No other studies have measured the effectiveness in removing both bacteria and viruses at the same time.. For the first time, too, the ...

Dr Anand says: Just look at the Rapid Responses in the bmj over the past few years. Find a SINGLE response from a public health epidemiologist or physician or specialist, or from manufacturers of vaccines, replying to questions from patients carers, from Mr Stone, or Dr Noel Thomas, or from me, a retired doctor who spent a professional life-time promoting immunisation of the susceptible against a prevailing infection.[1]. At this time we have little or no accountability for vaccination policy and practice. Citizens such as John Stone and myself are raising legitimate questions about increasing vaccine product use and safety, but the authorities refuse to engage. Old school doctors such as Jog Anand, Noel Thomas and Allan Cunningham are commendable for trying to raise valid discussion relevant to vaccination policy. It seems this work is left to the retired doctors, how many currently practicing doctors would have the courage to rock the boat in these currently hostile times? Its ...
