V Conclusion. --Submitted by Sophie Rosa. I Introduction. Health communication is one of the key health promotion approaches that enable people to increase control over, and improve their health. [1] However, demonstrating the effect of health communication efforts on behaviour change and isolating the effects of a campaign on a given health outcome are challenging and often require extensive resources. In fact, researchers examining the effectiveness of various major health communication campaigns report a prevalent lack of proper design and evaluation rigor. [2-5] In many cases, major campaigns that have been examined were not grounded in any validated health promotion models and theories [2], while more than half did not have any formative research efforts. [3,4] In his review, Noar (2006) reported that most campaigns examined had weak evaluation designs that failed to remove threats to internal validity. [6] The purpose of this article is to discuss the most prevalent challenges in the ...

CONTEXT:An understanding of the association between adolescents sexual and reproductive health knowledge and their use of relevant services is needed to improve young peoples sexual and reproductive health.. METHODS:Data from the National Survey of Family Growth were used to examine associations between sexual and reproductive health communication (parental and formal) and service use among 2,326 U.S. women aged 15-19 in 2002 and 2006-2008. Chi-square tests and multivariate logistic regression were used to assess relationships between adolescents receipt of sexual and reproductive health communication from parents and formal (school, church, community) sources and their use of sexual and reproductive health services.. RESULTS:The majority of adolescents had received parental (75%) and formal (92%) sexual and reproductive health communication; 43% reported recent service use. In unadjusted analyses, parental and formal communication were positively associated with service use. In regression ...
Guineas maternal and child health indicators are among the lowest in the world. Even before Ebola hit in 2014, trust and confidence in its health services were low. Ebolas rapid spread further fueled fear and distrust, with many people believing health workers themselves spread the disease.. As Guinea continues to recover from Ebola, the Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) is working with the countrys hardest hit communities to rebuild both trust in the health system and the quality of care delivered. This series of case studies examines some of HC3s activities and tools that were part of an overall social and behaviour change communication (SBCC) strategy to improve health behaviours and increase the demand for and use of quality reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) services in Guinea. Case studies deal with the use of community dialogues, the Bridges of Hope tool to stimulate discussion around RMNCH, the use of radio to reach wider audiences, and ...

The clear print standard requires a minimum font size of 12 point. However, you may wish to user a larger font depending on your audience. Using a point size of 16 means that there is no need to have a separate stock of large print documents. You should also be able to supply large print in various sizes above 16 point, on request.. Density and complexity of font type can reduce space - look for a simple font that spaces letters out.. Avoid italics, underlining, simulated handwriting, unusual shaped letters and decorative typefaces.. Consider the length of letters b, d, f, h, k, l, t, g, j, p, q, y in relation to the x height of the typeface. Short ascenders and descenders make a typeface less legible.. Fonts with uneven stroke widths tend to be less legible than fonts with even strokes.. Consider individual characteristics of letter shapes. For example a closed a is more likely to be confused with a c or an o than an open a, and a 3 can be confused with an 8 in some fonts.. Research ...

Each Decision box will present research-based information on the probabilities associated with each option as a combination of numbers, graphics and narrative statements. Although the evidence about the best risk communication formats is still not conclusive [6, 23], a number of reviews recommend combining graphs with verbal and numerical formats to improve the readers understanding of probabilistic information. Supplementing text with graphics has been proposed as a means to reduce the influence of less-relevant textual information, to improve decision-making and to increase accuracy when comparing probabilities [24]. Providing multiple formats may also help a broader audience with various numeracy levels make more accurate assessments of risks [25].. We will express the numerical probabilities of the benefits and harms of an intervention as absolute risk, communicated as natural frequencies with a constant denominator [5, 6, 26, 27]. Natural frequencies facilitate inferences on the likelihood ...
Interests: My research focuses on the intersection of wearable information technologies (IT) and health communication. In particular, I concentrate on communication between patients and physicians, looking at things such as patient participation and the physicians perspective. The wearable IT that I study can be used for patients who might otherwise have trouble communicating their health information to their physicians, be it from a lack of motivation to get involved with their health or with discussions about their health, health literacy issues, disabilities, insecurities, problems related to recall, factors related to language, and so forth. My research seeks to answer the question of how patients and physicians can better communicate with each other and what role wearable IT may play in this process. Keywords: wearables, information technology, health communication, physician-patient communication, personal informatics, social media, health behavior, consumer informatics, patient ...

HealthNewsDigest.com) - The CDC defines health communication as The study and use of communication strategies to inform and influence individual decisions that enhance health. While enhancing health has always been an admirable goal, the skyrocketing costs of health care--and certainly the involvement of government--has made health communication more important than ever before. The problem is that getting people to change their behavior is exceedingly difficult, and most efforts seem to fail miserably.. The classic example in health care, of course, is that it took more than 20 years for Ignaz Semmelweis advocacy of hand washing in medical settings to be widely accepted. Ironically, since his observations were reported before germ theory was mainstream, he was unable to provide a suitable scientific explanation for why his methods prevented disease transmission--never mind the truth of his observations. Semmelweis died a broken man, just one more tragic example of Max Plancks grim ...
The fact that this doctor is disheartened with quality metrics and protocols is understandable. Patients are people, and deserve to be treated as such. No two patients are the same. They each have different needs, barriers, identities, and beliefs. Perhaps working under standardized protocols does make the patient feel dehumanized, or like their personal needs are not being addressed because the provider has to follow the protocol. It is reasonable that clinicians may feel stifled in their ability to practice medicine, especially if they feel the protocol is hindering their care delivery. On the other hand, healthcare quality is still shockingly problematic. Though we have been striving to close gaps in quality since to Err is Human and Crossing the Quality Chasm were released at the turn of the millennium, we still face alarming quality issues. In fact, just the other week a study from Johns Hopkins University was released suggesting medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the ...

Informal caregivers provide unpaid care to their physically or mentally ill loved ones and play a critical role in the healthcare delivery. eHealth tools, including the broadband internet, can facilitate care processes and impact the caregiving burden through seeking health information and health communication. This study examines the predictors of access to broadband internet and the factors associated with health information seeking and health communication among informal caregivers with broadband internet. We used data from cycles 1 and 2 of the Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS 5) and employed generalized linear regression models with the maximum likelihood estimation. Specifically, we performed a two-part model: (1) a logistic regression model of broadband internet access among all caregivers (n = 929) and (2) a logistic regression model of health information seeking and health communication among caregivers with broadband internet access (n = 404). We found that caregivers ...

Better health all around-this is what clinicians and patients, alike, desire. But achieving and maintaining good health can be difficult task, as this requires the adoption of behaviours, habits, and lifestyles that are challenging for a variety of reasons. Perhaps the most vital tool in the delivery of healthcare, despite its low-tech nature, is communication-it plays an important role in informing, motivating, and ultimately achieving optimal health behaviours.
Regular screening reduces both morbidity and mortality from colorectal cancer (CRC). Screening rates, however, remain low suggesting the need for innovative research designed to increase screening behavior. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of two interventions (Tailored Health Communication [THC] and Motivational Interviewing [MI]) in increasing CRC screening behavior. Both interventions are based on a strong conceptual framework derived from the Health Belief Model (HBM) and Transtheoretical Model (TTM), allowing us to explore the underlying mechanisms through which these interventions impact behavior change.. The primary aim of this study is to compare CRC screening test use among 804 participants randomly allocated to control or intervention conditions; participants will be recruited from the two sites (Chicago, IL, and Nashville, TN). The 3 study groups will receive (1) standard care, (2) tailored health communication, and (3) motivational interviewing. Eligibility ...
