Resource utilization and work or school loss reported by patients with diabetes: experience in diabetes training programs. (1/4235)Diabetes exerts a major economic impact on healthcare in the United States both in terms of direct and indirect costs. Diabetes management and education programs designed to assist patients in achieving more optimal glycemic control represent a potential mechanism for reducing the morbidity and costs associated with diabetes. The relationship between HbA1c and patient hospitalizations and between HbA1c and days lost from work or school related to diabetes within the past year were evaluated. A cohort of 2359 patients with diabetes (188 type I, 2171 type II) referred to a comprehensive diabetes self-management training program was included in the analyses. Overall, 350 (14.8%) patients reported hospitalization, and 212 (9.0%) reported days lost from work or school. Patients with type I diabetes reported more hospitalizations (26.1% vs 13.9% and days lost (19.2% vs 8.1%) than type II patients. For the hospitalization outcome, the multivariate analyses indicated that younger age, the number of co-morbidities, and the duration of diabetes exerted a greater influence on the reported numbers of hospitalization than glycemic control. For the days lost outcome, the multivariate analyses indicated that there was a marginally significant association between patients with poor glycemic control and reported work or school loss related to diabetes (odds ratio = 1.5; 95% confidence interval, 1.0-2.2). These data suggest that interventions that improve glycemic control may decrease indirect costs related to diabetes. (+info)
Health promotion: perceptions of Project 2000 educated nurses. (2/4235)The new approach to pre-registration nursing education in the UK (Project 2000) has an overt health focus as well as a specific remit to prepare nurses for a role as promoters of health. Data reported in this paper illuminate Project 2000 students' understanding of the concepts of health promotion and health education, and indicate the extent to which qualified nurses who have completed this new Project 2000 programme perceive themselves to be prepared for a health promotion role. Findings indicate that students are confused about the terms health education and health promotion, although most feel there is a distinction between the two. Students' descriptions emphasize individualistic approaches, and lifestyle and behaviour changes. Many recognize that health promotion should have a broader application and demonstrate a sophisticated grasp of the philosophy underpinning the promotion of health through their general perceptions of nursing. This understanding is not labelled health education or health promotion, but is embedded in their articulation of concepts such as holism, patient-centred care and enhancing independence. Paradoxically, both students and Project 2000 qualified nurses (diplomates) illustrate a clear grasp of the more complex issues surrounding the concept of health promotion while remaining confused by the terminology and its relationship to practice.

Further analysis of the separate and interactive effects of methylphenidate and common classroom contingencies. (3/4235)We evaluated separate and interactive effects between common classroom contingencies and methylphenidate (MPH) on disruptive and off-task behaviors for 4 children with a diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Analogue conditions consisting of contingent teacher reprimands, brief time-out, no interaction, and alone were conducted in a multielement design. Medication status (MPH or placebo) was alternated across days in a superordinate multielement design. Results indicate that (a) the behavioral effects of MPH were influenced by one or more of the analogue conditions for each participant, and (b) time-out was associated with zero or near-zero levels of both disruptive and off-task behavior for 3 of the 4 participants during MPH and placebo conditions. Implications for the clinical effectiveness of MPH and possible behavioral mechanisms of action of MPH in applied settings are discussed. (+info)
HIV stress in primary school teachers in Zambia. (4/4235)A study was made of stress factors experienced by primary school teachers in Zambia after they had attended a course on stress management and counselling skills. Their pupils were significantly affected by poverty, death and illness of parents, fellow-pupils and teachers, teenage sex and pregnancy, violence in the home and, among girls, low self-esteem. The HIV epidemic had a major bearing on these factors, and there were wide-ranging effects on the teachers' own lives. Despite the training they had been given, many teachers felt that they could not adequately counsel their pupils on these matters. The teachers were in need of continuing support and training to enable them to cope with this aspect of their work. (+info)
Tobacco use among middle and high school students--Florida, 1998 and 1999. (5/4235)Tobacco use is the single leading preventable cause of death in the United States, and an estimated $2 billion is spent annually in Florida to treat disease caused by smoking. Florida appropriated $23 million in fiscal year 1997 and $70 million in fiscal year 1998 to fund the Florida Pilot Program on Tobacco Control to prevent and reduce tobacco use among Florida youth. To determine the prevalence of cigarette, cigar, and smokeless tobacco (i.e., chewing tobacco and snuff) use among Florida middle and high school students in public schools, the Florida Department of Health conducted the Florida Youth Tobacco Survey (FYTS) in February 1998 and February 1999. The purpose of these surveys was to establish baseline parameters and monitor the progress of the pilot program, which began in April 1998. This report summarizes advance data from the surveys, which indicate that, from 1998 to 1999, the percentage of Florida public middle and high school students who smoked cigarettes decreased significantly and that the percentage of middle school students who smoked cigars and used smokeless tobacco products decreased significantly.

Drinking and driving among US high school seniors, 1984-1997. (6/4235)OBJECTIVES: This article reports the prevalence of, and trends in, driving after drinking and riding in a car with a driver who has been drinking among American high school seniors, based on data from more than a decade (1984-1997) of annual national surveys. METHODS: Logistic regressions were used to assess the effects of demographic factors (gender, region of country, population density, parental education, and race/ethnicity) and selected "lifestyle" factors (religious commitment, high school grades, truancy, illicit drug use, evenings out per week, and miles driven per week). RESULTS: Rates of adolescent driving after drinking and riding with a driver who had been drinking declined significantly from the mid-1980s to the early or mid-1990s, but the declines have not continued in recent years. Rates of driving or riding after drinking were higher among high school seniors who are male. White, living in the western and northeastern regions of the United States, and living in rural areas. Truancy, number of evenings out, and illicit drug use all related significantly positively with the dependent variables, whereas grade point average and religious commitment had a negative relationship. Miles driven per week related positively to driving after drinking. (+info)
Changes at the high end of risk in cigarette smoking among US high school seniors, 1976-1995. (7/4235)OBJECTIVES: This study identified high school seniors at low, moderate and high risk for cigarette use to examine changes in the prevalence of daily smoking within risk groups from 1976 to 1995. METHODS: Data were taken from the Monitoring the Future Projects national surveys of high school seniors. Risk classification was based on grade point average, truancy, nights out per week, and religious commitment. Logistic regression models were used to estimate trends for all seniors and separately for White (n = 244,221), African American (n = 41,005), and Hispanic (n = 18,457) made and female subgroups. RESULTS: Risk group distribution (low = 45%, moderate = 30%, high = 25%) changed little over time. Between 1976 and 1990, greater absolute declines in smoking occurred among high-risk students (17 percentage points) than among low-risk students (6 percentage points). Particularly large declines occurred among high-risk African Americans and Hispanics. Smoking increased in all risk groups in the 1990s. CONCLUSIONS: Among high school seniors, a large part of the overall change in smoking occurred among high-risk youth. Policies and programs to reduce smoking among youth must have broad appeal, especially to those at the higher end of the risk spectrum. (+info)

There are two main types of postcoital contraception: emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs) and intrauterine devices (IUDs). ECPs are taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex and work by preventing or delaying ovulation, thickening cervical mucus to prevent sperm from reaching the egg, or preventing fertilization by interfering with the implantation of a fertilized egg in the uterus. IUDs are inserted into the uterus within 5 days of unprotected sex and work by preventing fertilization by interfering with sperm movement and preventing a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus. Postcoital contraception is not a substitute for regular contraception and should only be used as a backup method in cases of emergency. It is important to note that postcoital contraception is not 100% effective and may not prevent pregnancy in all cases.
Decision making in the medical field refers to the process of making choices and determining the best course of action for a patient's health and well-being. This process involves considering various factors such as the patient's medical history, current condition, personal preferences, and available treatment options. Medical decision making can be complex and involve multiple stakeholders, including healthcare providers, patients, and their families. It often requires a thorough understanding of medical knowledge, as well as the ability to communicate effectively with patients and their families. In the medical field, decision making can involve a range of decisions, from routine clinical decisions such as selecting the appropriate medication or treatment plan, to more complex decisions such as determining the best course of action for a patient with a life-threatening illness or injury. Ultimately, the goal of medical decision making is to provide the best possible care for the patient, while also respecting their autonomy and ensuring that their values and preferences are taken into account.
Dental care for disabled refers to the specialized dental care provided to individuals with disabilities. These individuals may have physical, cognitive, or emotional disabilities that make it difficult for them to receive routine dental care or to communicate their dental needs effectively. Dental care for disabled may include a range of services, such as oral hygiene instruction, preventive care, restorative care, and endodontic treatment. These services may be provided in a variety of settings, including dental offices, hospitals, and nursing homes. The goal of dental care for disabled is to ensure that individuals with disabilities receive the necessary dental care to maintain good oral health and overall health.
In the medical field, cross-cultural comparison refers to the study of how different cultures perceive, understand, and approach health and illness. This involves comparing and contrasting the beliefs, practices, and attitudes towards health and illness across different cultural groups. Cross-cultural comparison is important in healthcare because it helps healthcare providers to understand the cultural context of their patients and to provide culturally sensitive care. It also helps to identify and address health disparities that may be related to cultural differences. For example, cross-cultural comparison may reveal that certain cultural groups have different beliefs about the causes of illness, different attitudes towards seeking medical care, and different practices for managing health and illness. This information can be used to develop culturally appropriate interventions and treatments that are more likely to be effective for patients from different cultural backgrounds.
The Behavioral Sciences in the medical field refers to the study of human behavior, emotions, and mental processes in relation to health and illness. It encompasses a wide range of disciplines, including psychology, sociology, anthropology, economics, and political science, among others. The Behavioral Sciences in medicine seeks to understand how individual and social factors influence health behaviors, health outcomes, and the delivery of healthcare services. It also explores the role of culture, environment, and social determinants of health in shaping health behaviors and outcomes. The application of Behavioral Sciences in medicine can help healthcare providers develop more effective interventions to prevent and treat diseases, improve patient outcomes, and enhance the overall quality of care. It can also help policymakers design and implement evidence-based policies and programs to promote health equity and improve population health.
In the medical field, altruism refers to the selfless concern for the well-being of others, particularly in the context of healthcare. It involves putting the needs and interests of others before one's own, and taking actions that benefit others without expecting anything in return. Altruism is an important value in healthcare because it promotes the provision of high-quality care to all patients, regardless of their social status, race, or ability to pay. Healthcare providers who practice altruism are committed to improving the health and well-being of their patients, even if it means sacrificing their own time, energy, or resources. In addition to promoting high-quality care, altruism can also help to build trust and rapport between healthcare providers and their patients. When patients perceive that their healthcare providers are acting in their best interests, they are more likely to feel comfortable and confident in their care, which can lead to better health outcomes. Overall, altruism is an essential component of the healthcare profession, as it helps to ensure that patients receive the best possible care and that healthcare providers are motivated to act in the best interests of their patients.
In the medical field, awards and prizes are typically given to recognize outstanding achievements, contributions, or innovations in the field of medicine. These awards and prizes can be given by professional organizations, academic institutions, government agencies, or other entities. Some examples of awards and prizes in the medical field include the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, which is awarded annually to individuals who have made significant contributions to the understanding of biological processes or human physiology; the Lasker Award, which recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to medical research or public health; and the MacArthur Fellowship, which is awarded to individuals who have shown exceptional creativity in their work and the potential to continue to do so in the future. Other awards and prizes in the medical field may recognize excellence in clinical practice, teaching, or research. For example, the American Medical Association's Physician of the Year Award recognizes a physician who has demonstrated outstanding leadership, service, and dedication to the medical profession and the community. The National Institutes of Health's Director's Pioneer Award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the development of new approaches to understanding human biology and disease.
Allied Health Personnel (AHPs) are healthcare professionals who provide a wide range of services to support the delivery of healthcare. They are not medical doctors, but they play a critical role in the healthcare system by providing specialized services that complement the work of physicians and other healthcare providers. AHPs include professionals such as nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, pharmacists, medical laboratory technologists, radiologic technologists, respiratory therapists, and many others. They work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, long-term care facilities, schools, and private practices. AHPs are trained to provide specialized care in their respective fields, and they work closely with physicians and other healthcare providers to ensure that patients receive comprehensive and coordinated care. They may also be involved in research, education, and advocacy to advance the field of healthcare and improve patient outcomes.
In the medical field, body image refers to an individual's perception and attitude towards their physical appearance. It encompasses how a person feels about their body, including their shape, size, and overall appearance. Body image can be influenced by a variety of factors, including genetics, culture, media, and personal experiences. Positive body image is when an individual feels comfortable and satisfied with their physical appearance, while negative body image is when an individual has a poor opinion of their body and may experience feelings of shame, embarrassment, or low self-esteem. Negative body image can lead to a range of mental health issues, including eating disorders, depression, and anxiety. In the medical field, body image is an important consideration in the treatment of a variety of conditions, including eating disorders, obesity, and skin conditions. Medical professionals may work with patients to develop strategies for improving their body image, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, diet and exercise counseling, and support groups.
In the medical field, bullying is defined as repeated and intentional behavior that is meant to harm, intimidate, or humiliate another person. This behavior can take many forms, including physical, verbal, and emotional abuse. Bullying can occur in a variety of settings, including schools, workplaces, and healthcare facilities. Bullying in the medical field can take many forms, including: 1. Verbal abuse: This includes name-calling, insults, and derogatory comments. 2. Physical abuse: This includes hitting, pushing, or other forms of physical violence. 3. Emotional abuse: This includes intimidation, manipulation, and threats. 4. Social exclusion: This includes isolating a person from others or excluding them from social activities. Bullying can have serious negative effects on a person's physical and mental health. It can lead to anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems, as well as physical injuries. In the medical field, bullying can also lead to decreased job satisfaction, decreased productivity, and increased turnover rates.
Cohort studies are a type of observational study in the medical field that involves following a group of individuals (a cohort) over time to identify the incidence of a particular disease or health outcome. The individuals in the cohort are typically selected based on a common characteristic, such as age, gender, or exposure to a particular risk factor. During the study, researchers collect data on the health and lifestyle of the cohort members, and then compare the incidence of the disease or health outcome between different subgroups within the cohort. This can help researchers identify risk factors or protective factors associated with the disease or outcome. Cohort studies are useful for studying the long-term effects of exposure to a particular risk factor, such as smoking or air pollution, on the development of a disease. They can also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions or treatments for a particular disease. One of the main advantages of cohort studies is that they can provide strong evidence of causality, as the exposure and outcome are measured over a long period of time and in the same group of individuals. However, they can be expensive and time-consuming to conduct, and may be subject to biases if the cohort is not representative of the general population.
In the medical field, "Adaptation, Psychological" refers to the process by which individuals adjust to and cope with stressors, trauma, and other challenging life events. This can involve a range of psychological mechanisms, such as cognitive restructuring, emotional regulation, and social support seeking. Psychological adaptation can be influenced by a variety of factors, including an individual's personality traits, coping skills, social support network, and access to resources. It is an important aspect of mental health and well-being, as individuals who are able to effectively adapt to stressors are more likely to experience positive outcomes and maintain good mental health over time. Psychological adaptation can also be studied in the context of specific populations, such as refugees, military personnel, and individuals with chronic illnesses, to better understand the unique challenges they face and develop effective interventions to support their adaptation.
