The Department of Family and Community Medicine was established in 1975 as an administrative unit of the University of Alabama School of Medicine by founding chairman Dr. Robert G. Sherrill, Jr. In 1979-80, the UAB Family Practice Residency program began and an ambulatory training clinic was established both to educate residents and to maintain faculty clinical skills. The clinical practice saw approximately 9,000 patients each year until the mid-1980s when increasing demands for primary care and demands to generate additional clinical revenue to support the departments educational mission caused a surge in outpatient visits. For the next decade, the joint faculty-resident clinic practice completed over 20,000 outpatient visits annually. In addition, the department maintained a hospital inpatient service, provided care at a local nursing home, and offered family-centered obstetrical services. During the early 1970s, Family Practice Residency Programs were also established on the Huntsville and ...

Source: compiled from health departments statistics.. 14.50 Community medicine is a new specialty. Although the Todd Com-mission referred to it in its 1968 report, it was not until 1972 that a Faculty of Community Medicine was established by the Royal Colleges of Physicians. Outside the health service community physicians are employed in universities, the armed forces and government administration. Their main functions which are medical administration, environmental health and preventive medicine in the community, and epidemiology, combine to give the community physician a unique role in the planning of comprehensive health care for the community as a whole. The community physician should be responsible for:. highlighting the health problems in his particular population, for stimulating different health professionals to plan their services to meet these problems, and for evaluating and monitoring the success of these services.. In addition he should keep in contact with and advise the related ...

Erik A.Wallace, MD, Associate Professor, John H. Schumann, MD, Associate Professor, University of Oklahoma School of Community Medicine University of Oklahoma School of Community Medicine January 19, 2012 Appropriate Use of Screening and Diagnostic Tests to Foster High Value, Cost-Conscious Care TO THE EDITOR: As discussed by Qaseem et al (1), unnecessary testing ordered by physicians contributes to a significant proportion of increased health care spending. Although we agree that the 37 tests listed do not reflect high-value care, some of these tests, plus additional low-cost, low-value tests, are available for purchase by patients through commercial companies. These tests, including a variety of blood tests and ultrasounds, are being marketed to the general public as a way to find disease before symptoms present so that patients can avoid experiencing a catastrophic illness. Although patients can assess their risk for illness and whether a test is indicated, patients are encouraged to ...

A total of 10,202 individuals between 16 and 60 were investigated. In this manner, the material could be subdivided into a risk population consisting of the individuals who already were receiving anti-hypertensive treatment and those individuals in whom three blood-pressure measurements either revealed a systolic blood-pressure of more than or equal to 160 mm Hg or a diastolic pressure more than or equal to 95 mm Hg. Thereafter, the risk population was included in an intervention programme. The median blood-pressure for all persons investigated was 128 mm Hg. The median diastolic blood-pressure was 80 mm Hg. 1.9% of the individuals investigated were already receiving anti-hypertensive therapy and 2.5% of those examined had blood-pressures over the limits stated on all three measurements. The risk population thus consisted of 4,4% of all the persons investigated. Increasing systolic and diastolic blood-pressures were found with increasing age in both sexes. In the younger age-groups, however, the ...

My husband is a banker and his friends used to call me and seek medical advice. They had issues with blood sugar control and elevated cholesterol levels even from a comparatively younger age. Some were feeling anxious with heavy mental workloads and I thought it was important to study about occupational mental health.

The past and the present The torchbearersof medicine in ancient India were the likes of Sushruta, the first plasticsurgeon in the world and Charaka, the introducer of concepts like digestion andimmunity(1).But, unfortunately, the comparable enthusiasm is lacking in current medicalstudents.. The scientific research which had been an integral part of Indiancivilisation, has now taken a backseat in our medical education system. Currently,research methodology and biostatistics is coveredunder the subject of community medicine and constitutes a tiny part of theBachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (M.B.B.. S.) curriculum. Even that isonly theoretical with no hands on practical training. Thus, the exposure ofundergraduate students to this field is limited. Due to the paltry treatmentmeated out to researh ...

Many factors that influence our health operate at the societal rather than individual level: what culture we come from, whether we live in poverty, whether we have access to health care and high-quality education. Theres a bit of a paradigm shift to say behavior is not just an individual choice. Its also constrained by the social environment this person is in and their financial resources, Adler says. To get at these macro-level factors, exposome researchers are using geographical information systems. Geo-coding is really opening up possibilities of linking whats going on in neighborhoods and communities to disease outcomes, Adler says.. For example, Paul Juarez, PhD, professor of family and community medicine at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, uses mapping technology to study health disparities. Juarez and his team created the Public Health Exposome Database, which contains 15,000 data points on each of 3,100 counties in the U.S.-including data on water and air ...

Recently, there has been an increase in fitness shoes and sandals that promise-simply by wearing them-to sculpt and mold problem areas.. But UC Health physicians say the promises may be a little steep.. I believe that these shoes could strengthen muscles and improve posture, but they are not a miracle fitness breakthrough, says Sarah Pritts, MD, a physician in the department of family and community medicine. Other than studies from the shoes manufacturing companies, there have been no reports showing that these shoes increase weight loss or calorie burn.. Pritts says the idea behind the shoes-particularly those with rounded, or rocker soles, to help the foot rock forward-originated as a form of physical therapy for ankle injuries.. They help increase strength in the muscles surrounding the ankle, she says. Most of these shoes are meant to cause instability, which forces wearers to use their muscles to maintain balance. Some of the shoes recreate what its like to walk in sand-helping ...
Testing for penicillin allergy can allow considerable savings, of 282 euros per patient hospitalized in Portuguese hospitals and up to 2103 euros in an outpatient setting. Considering conservative estimates, this would imply an estimated saving of 8.4 million euros per year in the context of hospitalization alone.. The conclusions of the economic assessment study carried out by researchers from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Porto (FMUP), namely from MEDCIDS - Department of Community Medicine, Health Information and Decision, and from CINTESIS argues in favor of the widespread performance of tests on patients labeled as allergic to penicillins, a class that includes antibiotics in common use, such as amoxicillin.. The scientists calculated the costs, simulating and comparing two different strategies. In the first scenario, the patients were subjected to diagnostic tests for penicillin allergy and only those who tested positive were treated as allergic. In the second scenario, the ...

A study published in Environmental Health Perspectives showed that consuming organic products may lower childrens exposure to potentially damaging pesticides. In the study, researchers at the School of Public Health and Community Medicine, University of Washington, recruited families at both a retail chain grocery store selling primarily conventional foods and at a local cooperative selling a large variety of organic foods in the Seattle, WA, metropolitan area. Parents were asked to keep a food diary for their children for three days, then the childrens urine collected on day three was analyzed for pesticide metabolites. Children eating primarily organic diets had significantly lower levels organophosphorus (OP) pesticide metabolite concentrations than did children eating conventional diets. In fact, concentrations of dimethyl metabolites, one OP metabolite group, were approximately six times higher for the children eating conventional diets. Other studies indicate that chronic low-level ...

Guidelines exist for chronic kidney disease (CKD) but are not well implemented in clinical practice. We evaluated the impact of a guideline-based clinical decision support system (CDSS) on laboratory monitoring and achievement of laboratory targets in stage 3-4 CKD patients. We performed a matched cohort study of 12,353 stage 3-4 CKD patients whose physicians opted to receive an automated guideline-based CDSS with CKD-related lab results, and 42,996 matched controls whose physicians did not receive the CDSS. Physicians were from US community-based physician practices utilizing a large, commercial laboratory (LabCorp®). We compared the percentage of laboratory tests obtained within guideline-recommended intervals and the percentage of results within guideline target ranges between CDSS and non-CDSS patients. Laboratory tests analyzed included estimated glomerular filtration rate, plasma parathyroid hormone, serum calcium, phosphorus, 25-hydroxy vitamin D (25-D), total carbon dioxide, transferrin
Gatifloxacin is an 8-methoxy fluoroquinolone with broad activity against respiratory tract pathogens, including those commonly associated with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). To evaluate the efficacy and safety of oral gatifloxacin 400 mg once daily for seven to 14 days, community-based physicians enrolled adult outpatients with confirmed or suspected CAP in a prospective, single-arm, open-label, noncomparative study. Of 1488 clinically evaluable patients with radiographically confirmed or clinically suspected CAP, 1417 (95.2%) were cured. All strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Moraxella catarrhalis, the most commonly isolated pathogens, were susceptible to gatifloxacin. Penicillin nonsusceptibility was seen in 32.6% of S. pneumoniae isolates, and beta-lactamase production was detected in H. influenzae (26.9%) and M. catarrhalis (88%) isolates. Clinical cure rates of 91%, 94%, and 92% were achieved in patients with S. pneumoniae, H. influenzae, and M. catarrhalis,
