Political contributions from the health and insurance industries. (2/10)

During a major election year, interest surges in discovering the sources of campaign funds for influential members of Congress and presidential candidates. This study traces the contributors from the health and insurance industries during the 1990 campaign and presents preliminary figures for the 1992 campaign. Health interests contributed $16.3 million to congressional candidates in 1990, many of whom sit on influential committees and subcommittees. The insurance industry gave $10.9 million that same year. In either case, more than half of the funds came from political action committees (PACs); the rest, from individuals. As of 30 June 1992 health industry PACs had given more than $8.3 million to candidates for federal office in the 1992 campaign; insurance PACs had contributed $6.4 million.  (+info)

Scurvy in the British Mercantile Marine in the 19th century, and the contribution of the Seamen's Hospital Society. (3/10)

When long voyages in sailing vessels were commonplace, scurvy was a major health hazard in mariners of all nations. The observations of James Lind (1716-94) and others indicated that citrus fruits had both a preventive and curative role in this disease. In the light of this work, by 1800 the disease had been virtually eliminated from Britain's Royal Navy. However, it continued in the merchant navies of all nations until the latter half of the 19th century. In 1867, the Merchant Shipping Amendment Act was passed by the British Parliament largely as a result of a concerted effort by the Seamen's Hospital Society (SHS), one of whose physicians, Harry Leach (1836-79) was the major proselytiser for improved conditions in the merchant service. Examination of the SHS records before and after this event demonstrate a marked reduction in the prevalence of scurvy in the Port of London. Although other factors-such as the introduction of steam ships, which resulted in faster voyages-were clearly important, the compulsory administration of genuine lime juice under supervision in the merchant service seems to have exerted a significant effect.  (+info)

Patient safety culture and leadership within Canada's Academic Health Science Centres: towards the development of a collaborative position paper. (4/10)

Currently, the Academy of Canadian Executive Nurses (ACEN) is working with the Association of Canadian Academic Healthcare Organizations (ACAHO) to develop a joint position paper on patient safety cultures and leadership within Academic Health Science Centres (AHSCs). Pressures to improve patient safety within our healthcare system are gaining momentum daily. Because AHSCs in Canada are the key organizations that are positioned regionally and nationally, where service delivery is the platform for the education of future healthcare providers, and where the development of new knowledge and innovation through research occurs, leadership for patient safety logically must emanate from them. As a primer, ACEN provides an overview of current patient safety initiatives in AHSCs to date. In addition, the following six key areas for action are identified to ensure that AHSCs continue to be leaders in delivering quality, safe healthcare in Canada. These include: (1) strategic orientation to safety culture and quality improvement, (2) open and transparent disclosure policies, (3) health human resources integral to ensuring patient safety practices, (4) effective linkages between AHSCs and academic institutions, (5) national patient safety accountability initiatives and (6) collaborative team practice.  (+info)

Public reporting and pay for performance in hospital quality improvement. (5/10)

BACKGROUND: Public reporting and pay for performance are intended to accelerate improvements in hospital care, yet little is known about the benefits of these methods of providing incentives for improving care. METHODS: We measured changes in adherence to 10 individual and 4 composite measures of quality over a period of 2 years at 613 hospitals that voluntarily reported information about the quality of care through a national public-reporting initiative, including 207 facilities that simultaneously participated in a pay-for-performance demonstration project funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; we then compared the pay-for-performance hospitals with the 406 hospitals with public reporting only (control hospitals). We used multivariable modeling to estimate the improvement attributable to financial incentives after adjusting for baseline performance and other hospital characteristics. RESULTS: As compared with the control group, pay-for-performance hospitals showed greater improvement in all composite measures of quality, including measures of care for heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, and pneumonia and a composite of 10 measures. Baseline performance was inversely associated with improvement; in pay-for-performance hospitals, the improvement in the composite of all 10 measures was 16.1% for hospitals in the lowest quintile of baseline performance and 1.9% for those in the highest quintile (P<0.001). After adjustments were made for differences in baseline performance and other hospital characteristics, pay for performance was associated with improvements ranging from 2.6 to 4.1% over the 2-year period. CONCLUSIONS: Hospitals engaged in both public reporting and pay for performance achieved modestly greater improvements in quality than did hospitals engaged only in public reporting. Additional research is required to determine whether different incentives would stimulate more improvement and whether the benefits of these programs outweigh their costs.  (+info)

Legislative change to permit direct access to physical therapy services: a study of process and content issues. (6/10)

The purpose of this study was to examine process and content issues related to legislative change to permit direct access to physical therapy services. Data sources were survey questionnaires sent to the presidents of the 52 chapters of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), APTA publications, state statutes, and personal contacts. Results were based on the experiences of 35 chapters, 17 in direct-access states and 18 in non-direct-access states. The majority of direct-access states obtained their status in a single legislative campaign; the majority of non-direct-access jurisdictions attempting legislative change have been unsuccessful for 2 or more years. Over 80% of the chapters reported using legislative lobbyists. Opposing forces varied from state to state and included hospital and medical associations, physicians, chiropractors, and physical therapists. The following limitations on practice in a direct-access mode are found in the various practice acts: diagnosis requirements, eventual referral requirements, physical therapist qualifications, patient consent requirements, and practice setting restrictions.  (+info)

Quebec hopes to overcome province's surgical-delay problem. (8/10)

The Quebec government has released an action plan for eliminating delays in surgery in the province. One of the main goals is to increase the amount of day surgery, thus reducing the demands on hospitals. While most physician groups appear to support the plan, the Quebec Hospital Association wonders whether the follow-up community care needed to support the day surgery will be available.  (+info)

Gas and electricity: As sales of gas and electricity are considered to be sales of tangible personal property for sales and use tax purposes, certain utility companies must calculate the taxes due for metered service periods that include days before and after the July 1, 2011 in accordance with the following example:. Example 3: If a meter is read on July 5, 2011, with 30 days in the service period since the previous reading, 25/30ths of the charges for the period will be subject to the tax at the 6% rate that was applicable before July 1, 2011. The remainder, or 5/30ths of the charges for the period, will be subject to the 6.35% rate applicable to sales for periods on and after July 1, 2011. These fractions will change for each meter reading date. The following are the transition rules for Sales of Services: Payments made on or before May 4, 2011, for services provided before and after July 1, 2011, are not subject to additional tax. Payments made after May 4, 2011, for services provided on or ...

The nuclear-armed neighbours signed a ceasefire agreement along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Kashmir region in 2003, but the truce has frayed in recent years, and there have been mounting casualties among villagers living close to the de facto border. Both sides agreed for strict observance of all agreements, understandings and cease firing along the Line of Control and all other sectors with effect from midnight 24/25 Feb 2021, the joint statement said.

A crucial factor in the process of women with disabilities obtaining access to open employment is legislative change.. 1. To achieve this, the State government should:. a. Amend the Equal Opportunity Act (Victoria) to strengthen the prohibitions relating to discriminating against people with disabilities to ensure that adequate consideration is given to structural barriers which prevent people with disabilities from obtaining employment. This should include recognition of the additional structural disadvantages confronting women with disabilities seeking employment.. b.

Commit itself, in light of the current review of state industrial legislation, to removing legislative provisions which allow women with disabilities in sheltered employment and those on slow worker permits to be denied award wages and industrial rights.. 2.

The most significant achievement of Vladimir Putins team over the three years of his term of office is the realisation of legislative changes, which may constitute a base for further - more detailed - political and economic reforms. This is, to a certain degree, a return to the economic tasks set out by a team of reformists in the early 1990s, which were impossible to realise at the time due to conflicts between the Kremlin and legislative powers

by Shani O. Hilton. You cant breathe, you cant sleep, said White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, as she described the stress of worrying about an aging parent who needs assistance, and explained the comfort she gets from knowing her own parents now have a live-in caregiver.. Without that caregiver, Jarrett says that she would have had to leave the Obama administration and move back to Chicago.. Yet the three million professional, long-term home caregivers today are faced with a rapidly aging Baby Boomer population and a lack of adequate support, compensation or respect. Tuesday in Washington, the National Domestic Workers Alliance held what they called a Care Congress, an event where they introduced a campaign to transform long-term care. The campaign is designed to push legislative changes to Medicare and Medicaid - creating jobs by increasing the amount of money eligible people can spend on at-home care and allowing a rapidly aging population to avoid institutionalization..

The growing acceptance, use and demand for retail medicine is driven by rapid advances in digital technology, evolving demographic and cultural expectations and legislative changes in healthcare delivery-most of which were underestimated just a few years ago.. Retail clinics, which began operating in their present format in 2000, are medical clinics located in pharmacies, grocery stores and big box stores like Target and Walmart. These clinics offer extended weekend and evening hours, walk-in availability and short wait times. Many visits to retail clinics are in the evenings and weekends, when primary care offices are not available. The clinics treat a limited range of health conditions, such as minor infections and injuries, and provide vaccines and other preventive care. Care is delivered by a nurse practitioner or physician assistant. Prices are typically fixed and transparent.1. A key facilitator of retail (i.e., non-traditional site) clinics is the development of easy-to-use rapid ...

The Food Recovery Work Group, which I sponsored and was unanimously established by the County Council in October 2012, was asked to develop a report detailing how to create and implement a food recovery system in Montgomery County. This will be the first project of this type in any U.S. county. This implementation group is evaluating best practices; mapping existing resources; identifying ways to enhance communication among non-profits, organizations, service providers, and food suppliers; and recommending any needed legislative changes to assist in these efforts. The Council just received the work groups interim report, which included a recommendation to set aside funding in the FY14 Operating Budget to implement a food recovery network. In addition, the Crossroads Community Food Network proposed a way to duplicate what they do on a larger scale across the county, and increase access to fresh, local produce by multiplying the buying power of low-income shoppers through the Fresh Checks ...
Economies evolve and are subject to sudden shifts precipitated by legislative changes, economic policy, major discoveries, and political turmoil. Macroeconometric models are a very imperfect tool for forecasting this highly complicated and changing process. Ignoring these factors leads to a wide discrepancy between theory and practice. In their second book on economic forecasting, Michael Clements and David Hendry ask why some practices seem to work empirically despite a lack of formal support from theory. After reviewing the conventional approach to economic forecasting, they look at the implications for causal modeling, present a taxonomy of forecast errors, and delineate the sources of forecast failure. They show that forecast-period shifts in deterministic factors--interacting with model misspecification, collinearity, and inconsistent estimation--are the dominant source of systematic failure. They then consider various approaches for avoiding systematic forecasting errors, including intercept

The changes, which are now enshrined in legislation in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, will come into effect from 1 October 2021.. The updated technical guidance reflects the legislative changes and will help businesses and enforcement authorities understand the new requirements.. The changes were introduced after an earlier UK-wide consultation following the death of teenager Natasha Ednan-Laperouse as a result of an allergic reaction to sesame in a baguette she had eaten.. The new requirements only apply to food known as prepacked for direct sale (PPDS), which is packaged onsite by a business before a customer selects or orders it from the same premises.. It means that PPDS food will be required to have a label with an ingredients list and the allergens contained emphasised on the list. This brings the way allergen information is provided for it in line with other prepacked food and reduces consumer confusion.. ...

By Fr. Frank Pavone, Director of Priests for Life The joint statement issued by Fr. Frank Pavone and Bill Baird expresses convictions that both have had for many years, and have discussed with each other in the past several years. Simply put, when there is a deeply divided controversy about fundamental rights, people on opposing sides might conclude that their opponents are stupid, and hence ignore them, or that they are evil, and hence attack them. We, instead, conclude that our opponents are our brothers and sisters, and hence that we should get to know them.. The statement does not call for compromise, nor for an end to the debate on these serious questions. Nor does it seek to create a middle ground position. Both sides, in fact, see themselves as fighting for fundamental rights that cannot be compromised. What the statement does address is the manner in which these causes are to be pursued, and the attitude to be taken toward those who disagree. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, ...

In the practice of pharmacy, the role that pharmacists play in patient care continues to expand whether reimbursement for these new duties makes progress or not. While lobbyists and a multitude of organizations fight for pharmacists to attain provider status all over the country in an attempt to expand patient care roles, many states, are still making progress expanding care roles through much smaller legislative changes involving the practice of pharmacy. In Texas, the role of patient care has recently been expanded by legislative action granting pharmacists the ability to administer epinephrine auto-injectors in emergency situations. Even this small legislative change can have a big impact on patient care ...
The Irish went to Kenya and fell in love with a country and people that in many ways mirrored their own experience of home. Many went as missionaries and stayed to help provide healthcare and education. Others went to rapidly developing East Africa to become involved in setting up medical practices, motoring businesses, training schools and agricultural colleges.. Their stories are as diverse as the people themselves:. The Holy Ghost Fathers, among them Irishman, Fr. Tom Burke, grew the first commercially viable coffee plant in Kenya.. The Motel T Ford was first imported by Irishman, JJ Hughes, who went on to own the largest mother company in Kenya..

The group photograph of the University Medical Unit on the opposite page was probably taken in the Government Civil Hospital at Sai Ying Pun in the early half of 1928. Seated in the centre front row is Prof John Anderson, who joined the University of Hong Kong (HKU) in 1923 as its first full-time professor in Medicine.1 The chair was established following donations by the Rockefeller Foundation. Prof Anderson graduated from Glasgow University in 1907 and was in private practice near Liverpool. During the First World War he served as a surgical specialist in the army. Later, in Egypt, he became interested in bacteriology and pathology. Prior to his arrival in Hong Kong, he spent time in the West Indies as a member of the Filariasis Commission organised by Sir Patrick Manson and the Seamens Hospital Society. He became Dean of the Medical Faculty in 1927 but left the University in 1928 to join the new Henry Lester Institute for Medical Research in Shanghai where he died in 1931 at the age of 52. ...

Japan may be the worlds only liberal democracy thats also practically a one-party state. Since coming to power in December 2012, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has not only launched a radical bid to reflate Japans economy and pushed through legislative changes to expand the role of the armed forces overseas; he has also reversed years of progress toward a competitive two-party system. By marginalizing the opposition Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ), which had been unable to provide an effective alternative to his policies, Abe - as head of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) - brought Japan the political stability that it lacked from 2006 to 2012, when it replaced prime ministers every year.. But he also risks returning Japan to the sluggish policymaking that characterized the nearly half-century of uninterrupted LDP rule. Without a realistic threat to be unseated by an opposition party, the LDP could shrink from hard choices instead of implementing creative policies - like permitting more ...

Josephine announced it will be shutting down in March. Founder Charley Wang, co-founder of the Oakland-based community cooking service, announced the move on the companys blog Thursday. We knew that Josephine was an ambitious idea from day one and, as you all know, there have been many highs and lows over the years, Wang wrote. At this point, our team has simply run out of the resources to continue to drive the legislative change, business innovation, and broader cultural shift needed to build this business. Enabling neighbors to cook for one another, Josephine invested in changing California law to allow home-based cooks to sell their food. The site will operate for 60 days, free to the cooks.

Introduction Sitting balance may be affected by stroke, resulting in functional impairment and reduced mobility. Early return of sitting balance predicts greater return of motor function and mobility after stroke. Task-specific therapy is effective but patients must be motivated to perform the exercises repeatedly for the greatest benefit. Virtual reality training (VRT) allows patients to do exercises while interacting with a video game interface. It is enjoyable and may encourage repetition of therapeutic exercises. Past work in our laboratory showed that standing balance exercises performed with VRT produced additional improvements in gait speed and leg function over traditional inpatient rehabilitation (1). Because of legislative change in Ontario most stroke rehabilitation inpatients today cannot stand independently. There have been no studies on the effect of VRT on sitting balance. Purpose To assess whether additional sitting balance exercises performed via VRT can improve sitting balance ...
STANFORD -- It is against the law to do bodily harm to any creature listed in the Fish and Wildlife Services red book of endangered species. Plucking a feather from a bald eagle constitutes harassment. Putting a bullet through its heart could lead to imprisonment under the Endangered Species Act. But what if loggers in need of jobs cut down an endangered animals forest home? What if ranchers want to graze their cattle in the meadows that harbor a rare insect? That question -- whether the Endangered Species Act should simply protect rare species from bodily harm or whether their habitats must be protected as well -- is before the Supreme Court and Congress. The court must decide whether to uphold or overrule a lower-court ruling that says, in effect, that it would be OK to fell the tree a bald eagle nests in, as long as you dont lay hands on the endangered bird itself. Congress is considering legislative changes to the act as well that would weaken protection of endangered species habitats ...

The Financial Reporting Council has opened a consultation on a slimmed-down draft of the Audit of Charities in the UK paper, which has been updated to take into account recent legislative changes.. Practise Note 11, as the document is otherwise known, is a reference for charity auditors across the UK used in conjunction with International Standards on Auditing (ISAs).. The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has said its draft changes, the first made since the document was last updated in 2012, are due to developments in accounting and audit framework, including the issuance of a new charities SORP.. Charities have also been the subject of extensive press, public and parliamentary interest of late, and this revision of the Practice Note seeks to incorporate lessons learned, the new document adds.. Its latest version is less than half the length of the current Practice Note, at 71 instead of 149 pages, which it says is due to a removal of guidance that could be found elsewhere.. The reviewed ...
The Human City Institute published a report Forty Years of Struggle: A Window on Race and Housing, Disadvantage and Exclusion on 20th October 2016.. The report highlights that legislative changes since the 1960s have been geared towards eliminating the discrimination that Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic BME people have suffered. Whilst this has reduced discrimination against BME people in housing to some extent, this does still exist. The report however concludes that the aims have not been fully achieved.. I do not intend on recreating the 50 page report here but have highlighted below some excerpts that stood out to me.. The report found that [o]ne in ten BME people live in the worst 10 per cent of neighbourhoods in contrast to just 1 in 30 for the white population. BME people are also three times more likely than the white population to be residing in the 1 per cent worst living environments.. It also states that BME households are today far less likely to own their homes, either ...
Recent guidance from the IRS on the SECURE Act and Miners Act aims to clarify the legislative changes affecting tax-qualified retirement plans and IRAs.
I have to say that the decision didnt come as too much of a surprise to me as I had been getting the vibes for some time that the taskforce was unlikely to come out in favour of legislative change. I dont believe its a huge blow however and I think that much more important steps are being taken to improve donation and transplant rates thanks to the governments acceptance in full of the task forces recommendations that came out in January. Thess aim to increase organ donation rates by 50% over the next 5 years and is based on the success of the Spanish system of organ donation. Contrary to what the media may be saying, Spain has the highest donor rates in the world because of its system not because of its presumed consent laws (and this is backed up by the man who set up their system ...

The purpose of this policy is to provide guidance for bus drivers, other staff, students, and parents as to the use of AM/FM radios on the school buses and other District vehicles being used to transport students.

However, broadcast messages included within commercial radio broadcasting systems, both public and private, raise potential quality and content issues.

Therefore, special care must be exercised to avoid broadcasting questionable or undesirable materials ...

GEORGETOWN (13 March, 2020) - The international observer missions from the Commonwealth, the European Union, and The Carter Center issue the following statement:. The international election observation missions in Guyana are deeply concerned about the continued lack of transparency in the ascertainment of results for Region 4..
