The broken mirror. A self psychological treatment perspective for relationship violence. (1/306)

Clinicians face formidable challenges in working with male perpetrators of domestic violence. Many treatment programs use a confrontational approach that emphasizes male entitlement and patriarchal societal attitudes, without honoring the genuine psychological pain of the abusive male. Although some men with strong psychopathic tendencies are almost impossible to treat, the majority of spouse-abusing males respond best to an empathic, client-centered, self psychological approach that also includes education about sociocultural issues and specific skill building. Understanding the deprivations in mirroring selfobject functions from which these men typically suffer facilitates clinical treatment response. While insisting that men take full responsibility for their abusive behavior, treatment approaches can still be most effective by addressing inherent psychological issues. Group leaders who can offer respect for perpetrators' history, their experience of powerlessness, and their emotional injuries in primary relationships are more likely to make an impact.  (+info)

What is the future for equity within health policy? (2/306)

In spite of differences in meaning, equity is generally accepted as an important social and economic policy goal. However, recent policy debates suggest that this consensus is under challenge. This paper explores the current debate between the 'New Right' and its opponents, and how different approaches affect health policy. It is strongly argued that if equity is not to remain a misunderstood concept, it is essential to clarify the arguments in its favour, as well as the steps required to protect its position within policy. The paper then goes on to justify the concern with equity, the broad goals equity seeks to achieve, and the practical translation of these goals into health policy. In the final section essentially practical issues are raised, by considering planning strategies and what research is necessary to support and develop pragmatic planning based on equity goals.  (+info)

Strategic physician communication and oncology clinical trials. (3/306)

PURPOSE: Clinical trials are the primary means for determining new, effective treatments for cancer patients, yet the number of patients that accrue is relatively limited. The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between physician behavior and patient accrual to a clinical trial by videotaping the interaction. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Forty-eight patient-physician interactions involving 12 different oncologists were videotaped in several clinics at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute (Tampa, FL). The purpose of each interaction was to present the possibility of a clinical trial to the patient. A coding system, the Moffitt Accrual Analysis System, was developed by the authors to code behaviors that represented both the legal-informational and social influence models of communication behavior. Thirty-two patients agreed to participate in the clinical trial. RESULTS: Videotaping was found to be a viable, valid, and reliable method for studying the interaction. Physicians who were observed to use both models of influence were found to enroll more patients. Thus, patients were more likely to accrue to the trial when their physician verbally presented items normally included in an informed consent document and when they behaved in a reflective, patient-centered, supportive, and responsive manner. Discussion of benefits, side effects, patient concerns and resources to manage the concerns were all associated with accrual. CONCLUSION: This research has implications for modifying physician behavior and, thus, increasing the numbers of patients accruing to oncology clinical trials.  (+info)

Exploring the scope for advocacy by paediatricians. (4/306)

AIMS: To ascertain the type and extent of problems requiring advocacy in paediatrics. To develop an approach for analysing problems according to their root causes and the level of society at which advocacy is needed. METHODS: Nine paediatricians kept detailed clinical diaries for two weeks to identify problems. Classifications were developed to categorise problems by cause and the level of society at which they needed to be addressed. The press was surveyed for one week for childhood issues attracting media attention. RESULTS: 60 problems requiring advocacy were identified. Root causes included failures within agencies, between agencies, and inadequate provision. In addition to advocacy required individually, "political" action was needed at the community level (16 issues), city level (16 issues), and nationally (15 issues). 103 articles were found in the press, these did not relate closely to issues identified by clinicians. CONCLUSIONS: Many opportunities for advocacy arise in the course of daily work. A systematic way of analysing them has been developed for use in planning action. To optimise the health and health care of children, there is a need to train and support paediatricians in advocacy work for local as well as national issues. Ten issues were identified that might be prioritised by paediatricians working on an agenda for action.  (+info)

Cardiovascular risk factors and the neighbourhood environment: a multilevel analysis. (5/306)

BACKGROUND: This article examines whether the neighbourhood environment influences intermediate cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors, such as obesity (body mass index [BMI]), and lifestyle factors, such as no physical activity and smoking, when adjusted for the individual socioeconomic status (SES). METHODS: The study consists of face-to-face interviews from the Swedish Annual Level of Living Survey (SALLS) matched with the social status of the respondents' residential areas measured by two composite indices, the Care Need Index (CNI) and the Townsend score. The response rate was about 80%. This study was limited to the residents aged 25-74 years and consists of 9240 interviews from the years 1988-1989, when there were extended items in the SALLS about health and lifestyle. The data were analysed using a hierarchical logistic regression model. RESULTS: There was a gradient within every SES group so that respondents with a low (or intermediate or high) educational level exhibited an increasing proportion of daily smokers, physically inactive people and obese individuals with increasing neighbourhood deprivation. The multilevel model showed that respondents living in the most deprived neighbourhoods had an increased risk for being a daily smoker, engaging in no physical activity and being obese when adjusted for the individual SES. CONCLUSIONS: We showed that the area level has an important influence on risk factors for CVD which goes beyond the individual educational attainment. An increased level of living standard, more resources for primary health care and health promotion targeting the community level should be beneficial.  (+info)

Social background, adult body-height and health. (6/306)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To study the socio-demographic determinants of body-height and the bearing of these determinants on the association between body-height and health among Finnish adults. DATA AND METHOD: Cross-sectional population survey including questions on social background, body-height and health, and retrospective questions on childhood living conditions. The data derive from a representative Survey on Living Conditions collected by Statistics Finland in 1994. The response rate was 73%. Male and female respondents > or =20 years were included in the analysis (N = 8212). Statistical methods include regression analysis and logistic regression analysis. RESULTS: Body-height was strongly associated with year of birth, region, childhood living conditions and education among adult men and women. Body-height was also associated with limiting long-standing illness and perceived health as below good. Tall men had the best health and short men the poorest health. Among women the association of body-height with health differed from men, as tall women showed high levels of limiting long-standing illness, notably musculo-skeletal diseases. Adjusting for the background variables weakened but did not abolish the association between poor health and short stature among men and women. CONCLUSIONS: Short stature is associated with poor health among Finnish men and women. A non-linear association among women was found for musculo-skeletal diseases. The studied social background factors explained only little of the association between body-height and health.  (+info)

The environmental genome project: ethical, legal, and social implications. (7/306)

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences is supporting a multiyear research initiative examining genetic influences on environmental response. Proponents of this new initiative, known as the Environmental Genome Project, hope that the information learned will improve our understanding of environmentally associated diseases and allow clinicians and public health officials to target disease-prevention strategies to those who are at increased risk. Despite these potential benefits, the project presents several ethical and social challenges. Of immediate concern is the protection of individual research participants. Other ethical issues relate to the application of research results and how study findings could affect social priorities. Clarifying these emerging areas of concern, many of which have not received adequate attention in the existing bioethics literature, is an important step toward minimizing potential research-related risks and defining research needs.  (+info)

Why reduce health inequalities? (8/306)

It is well known that social, cultural and economic factors cause substantial inequalities in health. Should we strive to achieve a more even share of good health, beyond improving the average health status of the population? We examine four arguments for the reduction of health inequalities.1 Inequalities are unfair. Inequalities in health are undesirable to the extent that they are unfair, or unjust. Distinguishing between health inequalities and health inequities can be contentious. Our view is that inequalities become "unfair" when poor health is itself the consequence of an unjust distribution of the underlying social determinants of health (for example, unequal opportunities in education or employment).2 Inequalities affect everyone. Conditions that lead to marked health disparities are detrimental to all members of society. Some types of health inequalities have obvious spillover effects on the rest of society, for example, the spread of infectious diseases, the consequences of alcohol and drug misuse, or the occurrence of violence and crime.3 Inequalities are avoidable. Disparities in health are avoidable to the extent that they stem from identifiable policy options exercised by governments, such as tax policy, regulation of business and labour, welfare benefits and health care funding. It follows that health inequalities are, in principle, amenable to policy interventions. A government that cares about improving the health of the population ought therefore to incorporate considerations of the health impact of alternative options in its policy setting process.3 Interventions to reduce health inequalities are cost effective. Public health programmes that reduce health inequalities can also be cost effective. The case can be made to give priority to such programmes (for example, improving access to cervical cancer screening in low income women) on efficiency grounds. On the other hand, few programmes designed to reduce health inequalities have been formally evaluated using cost effectiveness analysis. We conclude that fairness is likely to be the most influential argument in favour of acting to reduce disparities in health, but the concept of equity is contested and susceptible to different interpretations. There is persuasive evidence for some outcomes that reducing inequalities will diminish "spill over" effects on the health of society at large. In principle, you would expect that differences in health status that are not biologically determined are avoidable. However, the mechanisms giving rise to inequalities are still imperfectly understood, and evidence remains to be gathered on the effectiveness of interventions to reduce such inequalities.  (+info)

Ear infections, conjunctivitis, and bronchitis do not respond to antibiotics. That is the news in three medical articles that disprove the utility of antibiotics for common childhood illnesses.. A landmark study published in Pediatrics has shown that treating ear infections with antibiotics has no benefit when compared to doing nothing (McCormick 2005). In this study 223 children were divided into two groups. One group received antibiotics, the other group received only medicines for symptom relief. The study sought to evaluate several outcomes including (1) parent satisfaction with their childs care, (2) resolution of symptoms, and (3) failure and recurrence rate. The study was limited to nonsevere ear infections. The severity was determined by parents perception of the severity and by examination of the eardrum.. Results of the study were dramatic. Parent satisfaction was equal in the two groups at both 12 days and 30 days after treatment. No difference was observed between the two groups in ...

Aspects of the social environment, including social conditions (socio-economic status, household situations, chronic illnesses) and social relations (attitude and behaviors of relations) are major determinants of depression among women. This study evaluates the relative power of social relations and social conditions in predicting depression among pregnant women in Pakistan. In the qualitative phase of the study, social environmental determinants were identified through literature search, and experts opinions from psychologists, psychiatrists, gynecologists, sociologists and researchers. Along with this, 79 in-depth interviews were conducted with pregnant women drawn from six hospitals (public and private) and two communities in Karachi, Pakistan. Identified determinants of depression were grouped into themes of social conditions and social relations and pregnancy-related concerns. In the studys quantitative phase, the relative power of the identified themes and categories, based on their scores for

The projected additional cost per year 2018-2036 varies between 8 and 100 USD million depending on the scope of the package and the target coverage. The average annual per capita cost varies from USD 0.72 for expanding routine immunization to USD 8.26 for the expanded immunization plus management of childhood illness.. The implementation of a comprehensive package of both preventive and curative care could avert over 71,000 child deaths over the course of the investment if made universally available (95% coverage), and bring the under-five mortality ratio down from its current level of 69 per 1000 live births by 62%, to reach 51 deaths per 1000 live births. The greatest absolute gains in terms of deaths averted and reduction in mortality rates comes from the management of common childhood illness. This is partially due to the lower starting coverage of these interventions.. ...
Developing sustainable, long-term solutions - Efforts in Africa need to be sustainable to really make a difference. Programs that help to train physicians and other healthcare workers are essential.

This study identified important possible factors that lead to inequalities in medical care utilization for childhood diarrhea, fever, and cough in Ethiopia. In this study, household wealth status, maternal education, paternal education, maternal age, childhood age, childhood birth order, and maternal workload were identified as factors leading to inequality in health care utilization.. Household wealth status was consistently associated with the three outcome variables, in other words, medical treatment seeking behaviors for childhood diarrhea, cough, and fever. Mothers from households with the richest, richer, and middle wealth status had higher odds of seeking medical treatment than the ones from the poorest household. This finding is consistent with studies in Uganda and Ethiopia which showed that delays in care seeking for childhood fever were higher in the lowest socio-economic status than in the highest one [14, 15]. Moreover, this finding is in agreement with other studies in developing ...

Since 1990, an ordinary Iraqi citizen has been dependant on the food ration[8] and at the same time had increasingly less opportunities to supplement it by purchases on the open market. The portion of income devoted to food increased with the decrease of income. The amount of food consumed by the Iraqi family with an average income in 1993 was only 31.3% of what that family had consumed in 1988[9]. By 1993 an average of 72 % of household incomes were used for the purchase of food[10]. FAO reported[11] in 1995 that the accessibility to food beyond the amounts provided through public rations has been limited by soaring food prices. The report slates that the Family Purchase Power Indicator (FPPI) for Iraq has been in constant decline.[12] Starting at 3.62 in 1990, the FPPI dropped to 0.15 in 1993, and to 0.06 in 1995. The post-1990 FPPI values are well below the 1.25 level which FAO considers as signal of household nutritional deficiency; such a level means that least 80% of a familys income is ...

Vitamin A is essential for the functioning of the human immune system. In industrialized countries, foods like flour or sugar have been fortified with it for decades. But its not the same picture in some developing countries, where children with Vitamin A deficiency run the risk of dying from common childhood illnesses like measles. The cost of ensuring all children receive enough Vitamin A is peanuts: capsules cost just 2 cents each, but improve childrens chances of survival by as much as 25%. This episode of Life looks at the prospects for two very different Vitamin A distribution programs in Ghana and Guatemala, and asks whether the best way to ensure all children have access to the nutrients that can help them lead healthy, fulfilled lives isnt new, genetically-modified crops -- like the experimental Vitamin-A modified golden rice currently being developed in Professor Ingo Potrykus lab in Switzerland, as part of an initiative supported by the Rockefeller Foundation.. The producer of ...
Fever . Fever and red cheeks make me immediately think of fifths disease - also known as slapped cheeks disease. It is caused by a virus called parvovirus b19 and is a very common childhood illness. It is usually harmless and does not require treatment unless the child also has a chronic disease that can predispose them to anemia such as sickle cell anemia. It can also be a concern if a pregnant woman has been exposed to someone with fifths disease. Below ive linked to website with more in-depth information on fifths disease. In the meantime, its important to keep your child comfortable and watch for signs of a more serious infection. red flags that we look for with fever to indicate something more serious is going on are: -fevers that last 5 days or more -fevers persistently above 104f orally -a child that acts very sick - very irritable or difficult to wake -difficulty breathing -vomiting, diarrhea, refusal to drink, or dehydration -a purple rash, esp on the legs (a red lacy rash on the ...
It is normal for kids to contract six to eight colds or other bugs in a year, and this time of year is particularly hard, said Dr. Ketura Talbot, a family practice physician with Mesa Primary Care. Many kids are in school or daycare and not afraid to touch anything they can get their little hands on. Add to that their young bodies, and youve got a perfect vector for spreadable germs. Here, Dr. Talbot discusses four common childhood illnesses parents should know about ...

Next, collective efficacy was added as a predictor in the level 3 model (Table 4, model 2). The analysis built in a correction for errors of measurement in this predictor (30). We found collective efficacy to be negatively related to violence (t = −5.95), net of all other effects, and to correspond to a standardized coefficient of −0.45. Hence, after social composition was controlled, collective efficacy was strongly negatively associated with violence. Moreover, the coefficients for social composition were substantially smaller than they had been without a control for collective efficacy. The coefficient for concentrated disadvantage, although still statistically significant, was 0.171 (as compared with 0.277). The difference between these coefficients (0.277 − 0.171 = 0.106) was significant (t = 5.30). Similarly, the coefficients for immigrant concentration and for residential stability were also significantly reduced: The coefficient for immigrant concentration, originally 0.041, was ...
Following due diligence and review of the transaction by relevant Committees, there are three potential outcomes, summarized below with select case studies.. Transaction Approved. Transaction Conditionally Approved Subject to Environmental and Social Conditions. Hydropower in a developing country: Goldman Sachs was asked to arrange a loan facility on behalf of a company developing a hydropower project for the national government. Through our review, we determined an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) was carried out pursuant to the host countrys law and standards, but did not meet international best practice. We engaged our Corporate Environmental Management team, which includes staff with technical environmental expertise. Working together, we were able to encourage our client to re-perform its ESIA according to IFC Performance Standards which are more stringent than local law in this case. The ESIA confirmed there were no significant environmental issues; however, there were a ...
Abstract The people of Colombia suffer from a deep spiral of internal conflicts and unstable social conditions. The aim of this study is to highlight inequality in Colombia by applying Charles Tillys theory of durable inequality through categorical pairs. A qualitative method is applied in order to gain deeper insight to inequality in Colombia. The essay examines the phenomenon by completing a content analysis. The breakdown is limited to four study categories: gender, crime, health and social stratification. Categorical inequality is further analysed through Tillys four mechanisms: exploitation, adaptation, emulation and opportunity hoarding. A coding scheme is used in order to heighten the reliability and validity. Code entities (study categories) are examined through specific code variables. The method is further improved by reinterpretation of the content and analysis of Tillys mechanisms. Results confirm the serious condition of internal conflicts in Colmbia. Social stratifiction have ...
Introduction. The analysis of pregnancy in Pietro the Fool and Peruonto Mathilde Jourdan Foundations in World Cultures - AHUM 1416-3 Dr. Gabrielle Popoff October 14th 2009 Both short folk stories Pietro the Fool by Giovanfrancesco Straparola and Peruonto by Giambattista Basile tell of a poor, dim and common boy who, upon being insulted by a girl from an upper social class, makes her pregnant by means of magic - and eventually marries her. Both Pietro and Peruonto are luckless heroes whose fortunes are changed by this magic act of conception. The theme of pregnancy reveals a lot about gender roles, social class issues and the kind of patriarchic society the heroes live in. It ties together all kinds of interesting aspects of life in those times. Hence by analyzing these stories, one can get a better idea of the social conditions of the time those characters live in. These tales reflect a male viewpoint in which the hero seeks revenge for the emasculating comments made by a young ...

Baldwin encapsulates the problem of whiteness and identifies distrust as a key - distrust of oneself and distrust of others. Recognizing white privilege is a first step to simply being aware of the world and this distrust. Using that privilege to undermine the social relations that create that inequality is a radical act we must take up as white people within this movement if we are to become a real threat to the established order.. Widespread anger at social conditions, periodic rebellions and protests around discrete injustices, isolated movements, various forms of counter-culture, small-scale utopian projects or lifestyle politics always exist, but rarely transform society by themselves. Moments that have transformative potential are products of intense crisis coupled with broad based movements that feed off of each other. We are living through one of these crises now, and the Occupy movement seems to be a first step down what will be a very long road that will hopefully lead to a different ...
20] The United States deep social problems are all the more disturbing because the nation enjoys exceptional per capita wealth among the major western nations (Barro and McCleary; Kasman; PEW; UN Development Programme, 2000, 2004). Spending on health care is much higher as a portion of the GDP and per capita, by a factor of a third to two or more, than in any other developed democracy (UN Development Programme, 2000, 2004). The U.S. is therefore the least efficient western nation in terms of converting wealth into cultural and physical health. Understanding the reasons for this failure is urgent, and doing so requires considering the degree to which cause versus effect is responsible for the observed correlations between social conditions and religiosity versus secularism. It is therefore hoped that this initial look at a subject of pressing importance will inspire more extensive research on the subject. Pressing questions include the reasons, whether theistic or non-theistic, that the ...

Sibling Identity and relationships asks what it means to be a sister or brother, a relationship which has tended to be sidelined in foregrounding parental-child relations. It charts the emotional and social facets to their ongoing constructions, shifts and changes. The authors interestingly combine social constructionist and psychodynamic perspectives as a means of discussing complex, shared, emotions, such as sibling projective identification, connection and separation. Such emotions are seen to be shaped by and respond to varying social conditions and circumstances. In answering the question why siblings? the authors point to the significance of siblings for our sense of self, whether that self be constructed as similar to or vastly different from our sisters and brothers.. Each author positions herself by disciplinary background as well as by sibling status: in the rehearsal and displacement of oldest, middle and youngest child syndrome myths, many other readers may well consider ...

Sadly, WHO statistics show that 11 percent of children living in the world are born to teens aged 15-19 years. When we look at the study closely, we find that women who delivered a child before their 20th birthday mostly have grown up in lower-income families, under adverse social conditions and minimal education. On top of all these, bearing a child denies a woman of her education and career growth resulting in stress and financial crunches as well. Stress can have a toll on a persons overall well-being and needs to be controlled before it devastates the individual. Read more on ways to curb stress at ...

The environmental and social conditions that indigenous communities interact with the external environment are characterized by a constantly increasing degree of complexity. The interaction between different cultures can be considered a multifaceted process of negotiation. It is well acknowledged that the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for indigenous cultural preservation and revitalization can lead to several challenges. In this context, Indigenous Knowledge (IK) represents a critical resource that needs to be focused towards specific processes and governance activities. The early efforts in knowledge management were on technologies to store, capture, and distribute knowledge, while the focus at present has shifted to make explicit, the tacit knowledge, but the development is more conceptual than practical. This study focuses on exploring the patterns of Indigenous Knowledge Management (IKM) and the supporting of a governance system of communities. Based on generic ...
Does this search for a better lifestyle give them a better life? The environmental and social conditions they live in provide the status of living in Mumbai but have they in any way been uplifted to a better living standard? Are they more secure, or financially better off or healthier? Can these answers be affirmative? Ill share a story about the domestic-help working in my local community - a migrant from Rajasthan. When asked how secure he was in this city. He replied candidly, We have our own people staying together and if there is any need we rely on them. On being asked what he did with the money he earned and where did he save/deposit his savings, he replied I take all my savings back home and save there. Does this confirm that theyre secure and have a better life in villages? ...

at home, having one-to-one care and the local GP visiting if there was a problem. Indeed, since the continued medicalisation of childbirth we are constantly bombarded with the ever increasing numbers of assisted or operative births. Therefore, birth within a consultant led maternity unit is now the norm. There is little doubt that the challenges faced daily by those at the coalface are also increasing, and there are women with medical, physical and social conditions who require highly complex care that is now provided in maternity units. We need modern midwives to respond to this demand, and so far they do. It could be argued that we have lost sight of the basic skills midwives relied upon in the past.1 However, these skills have been replaced with an enormous range of new and equally important ones that suit childbirth in the 21st Century.. Despite several significant government reports, beginning with Changing Childbirth in 1993,2 looking at normalising birth and another led by Dame ...
