Community health needs assessments often result in identification of a substantial number of service gaps and health care problems. Financial and other resource limitations demand that we set priorities among assessed community health needs in order to focus resources on where they will do the most good and be most effective. This program, led by public health professor Leslie Beitsch, described established methods and tools for setting priorities for community health improvement. In this webinar, the presenter discusses what, who, why, and when to prioritize. He also offers information concerning different priority-setting methods inclucing dotmocracy, nominal group planning, strategy map, simplex method, hanlon method, criteria weighting and prioritization matrix. As a result of this webinar participants are able to use information from community health needs assessments to determine priorities, engage community members and organizational leaders in setting priorities, and select criteria ...
The decision to develop a NICE guideline or quality standard on a particular health, public health or social care topic is influenced by a number of factors.. Generally, the topics selected come either from libraries of quality standard topics already referred to NICE, or from updates of previously published guidelines.. The focus on topic selection at NICE therefore is largely on prioritising existing topics. Alongside this portfolio of topics, NICEs commissioners(NHS England and the Department of Health) are likely to continue to identify a small number of new topics, which will have to be similarly prioritised.. On this page the approach to prioritising referred topics for guidelines and quality standards is set out, along with the mechanism for agreeing any additional new topics. The core elements of this process will be included in the new unified guideline manual.. This process applies only to guidelines for public health, social care and clinical topics, not to NICE guidance on new ...
This project report is the product of an extensive survey and analysis by Swedens National Centre for Priority Setting in Health Care. The project was commissioned by the National Board of Health and Welfare, which shall report to the Swedish Government on the priority setting activities of local governments (eg, county councils and municipalities) and assess how well they comply with the intent of Swedens Health and Medical Services Act and the Riksdags (Swedish parliament) resolutions on priority setting. We were also assigned to analyse problems in applying the guidelines on priority setting and to propose changes and clarification.. The National Centre for Priority Setting in Health Care has been engaged in the complexities of prioritisation issues for many years. We welcomed the Governments initiative and gladly accepted this assignment. Our ambition has been to describe the situation throughout Sweden from multiple perspectives. We reviewed the literature on studies and follow-ups ...

What is priority setting for research on LF?. Priority setting for future research attempts to list all research questions which doctors, paramedical workers, therapists and scientists feel important in their routine practice. Priority setting meetings also invite patients to participate in the discussion. Patients have tried several treatments for long and they are able to judge the benefits of these treatments. They have thoughts on which treatments should be evaluated or modified. Anyone interested in morbidity control of LF or Integrative Medicine can participate. Your ideas and experiences either based on pilot observations or gut feelings are important for research priority setting. You should log in to the website and submit your ideas. If you wish to know more about priority setting workshops please read James Lind Alliance guidebook.. How can you participate in priority setting workshop during the 6th National Colloquium? There is no separate registration fee for priority setting ...
Health systems have experienced unprecedented stress in recent years, and as yet no consensus has emerged as to how to deal with the multiple burden of disease in the context of HIV and AIDS and other competing health priorities. Priority setting is essential, yet this is a complex, multifaceted process. Drawing on a study conducted in five African countries, this paper explores different stakeholders′ perceptions of health priorities, how priorities are defined in practice, the process of resource allocation for HIV and Health and how different stakeholders perceive this. A sub-analysis was conducted of selected data from a wider qualitative study that explored the interactions between health systems and HIV and AIDS responses in five sub-Saharan countries (Burkina Faso, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Madagascar and Malawi). Key background documents were analysed and semi-structured interviews (n = 258) and focus group discussions (n = 45) were held with representatives of communities,
Local healthcare officials accepted the challenge of identifying the top health priorities for residents in Sampson County, and have started to lay out the framework for plans to address these concerns.. Over the past year, the Sampson County Health Department and Healthy Carolinians have been gathering data through the Community Health Assessment and have made a recommendation to the Board of Health and county commissioners as to what the top health priorities are for Sampson County.. According to Luke Smith, health educator with the Health Department, based on surveys and data, the top three health priorities for Sampson County are substance abuse, STDs/sexual activity/pregnancy prevention and chronic disease.. Over the course of the next three years, the Health Department will work to address these problems.. "The Community Health Assessment, referred to as the CHA, is the foundation for improving and promoting the health of county residents," Smith explained. "It is a fundamental tool of ...
Aims Research priorities are often set by academic researchers or the pharmaceutical industry. The interests of patients, carers and clinicians may therefore be overlooked and research questions that matter may be neglected. The aims of this study were to collect uncertainties about the treatment of Type1 diabetes from patients, carers and health professionals, and to collate and prioritize these uncertainties to develop a top 10 list of research priorities, using a structured priority-setting partnership of patients, carers, health professionals and diabetes organizations, as described by the James Lind Alliance. Methods A partnership of interested organizations was set up, and from this a steering committee of 10 individuals was formed. An online and paper survey was used to identify uncertainties. These were collated, and the steering group carried out an interim priority-setting exercise with partner organizations. This group of uncertainties was then voted on to give a smaller list that went

OBJECTIVE: To determine research priorities for the management of broken bones of the upper limb in people over 50, which represent the shared priorities of patients, their families, carers and healthcare professionals. DESIGN/SETTING: A national (UK) research priority setting partnership. PARTICIPANTS: People aged 50 and over who have experienced a fracture of the upper limb, carers involved in their care, family and friends of patients, healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of these patients. METHODS: Using a multiphase methodology in partnership with the James Lind Alliance over 15 months (September 2017 to December 2018), a national scoping survey asked respondents to submit their research uncertainties. These were amalgamated into a smaller number of research questions. The existing evidence was searched to ensure that the questions had not already been answered. A second national survey asked respondents to prioritise the research questions. A final shortlist of 25 questions was taken

Understanding pain as a public health priority helps to explain its tight linkage with social and economic determinants of health. The social epidemiologic evidence suggests strongly that patterns of NCDs from the hyperlocal to the global level are powerfully determined by the conditions in which people and communities live, work, and play [23]. Given the aforementioned comorbid relationship between a variety of NCDs and chronic pain, one would predict that chronic pain should correlate with some of these social determinants of health. This prediction is borne out in research that links with chronic pain a number of such determinants, including mental and physical stress at work, [24, 25] socioeconomic status, [26] rurality,[27] occupational status, [28] neighborhood, [29] race, [29, 30] and education [31].. One of the most promising theories regarding the causal pathways between such social factors and poor NCD and all-cause health outcomes is the allostatic load hypothesis [32, 33]. This ...

Priorities. 6.1 We emphasised in Chapter 2 that the demand for health care is always likely to outstrip supply and that the capacity of health services to absorb resources is almost unlimited. Choices have therefore to be made about the use of available funds and priorities have to be set. The more pressure there is on resources, the more important it is to get the priorities clear; and the more difficult the choices are, the more important it is, in our view, that the ways in which they are reached are generally known and susceptible to public influence. In this chapter we consider how priorities are set in the NHS, and go on to discuss some of the current preferences.. 6.2 The DHSS Consultative Document on priorities for health and personal social services in England begins by saying:. "This Consultative Document is a new departure. It is the first time an attempt has been made to establish rational and systematic priorities throughout the health and personal social services.".

In recent years, Precision Cancer Medicine has developed from a mere buzz word into a framework for clinical decision-making at several comprehensive cancer centres world-wide. On the one hand, cost-effective targeted sequencing approaches are used to assess the ever-increasing number of known cancer drivers often prospectively within clinical trials. On the other hand, genome-wide analyses (i.e. exome sequencing) help to unveil this increasing list, mainly through retrospective comparisons. As more and more data are generated, clinical utility increases, but so does the complexity in data analysis.. A number of web applications have been developed to facilitate interactive prioritisation of variants (Additional file 1: Table S1). BrowseVCF is a comprehensive open source web application based on Python [16], enabling the exploration of VCF files, but requires variant annotation upstream of the tool. Database.bio is another web application for variant prioritisation [17]. However, at the time of ...

Results To date, 142 subjects took the online survey with 123 completing it: 44% (n = 63) male and 56% (n = 79) female. Most subjects were from Oceana (35%) followed by Europe (18%), America (18%), Africa (15%) and Asia (14%). The majority (59%) of participants were from developed countries. Unreliability (17%) was the greatest barrier for use of POCTs, followed by being laboratory-driven (15%) and time- frame (13%). Perceptions of STI POCT differed significantly between developing and developed country participants. The majority (85%) of participants from developing countries thought test cost was more important versus 67% from developed countries (p , 0.05). Participants from developing countries ranked early HIV seroconversion as top priority for new STI POCT while those from developed countries chose chlamydia. Only 24% from developing countries preferred to prioritise the development of chlamydia POCT as compared to 57% from developed countries.(p value?) In addition, the majority (53%) of ...

WASHINGTON (AP) - Beg, borrow and steal: Zika preparation involves a bit of all three as federal, state and local health officials try to get a jump on the mosquito-borne virus while Congress haggles over how much money they really need.. With that financing in limbo, health officials are shifting resources and setting priorities - and not just in states where mosquitoes are starting to buzz. All but six states so far have seen travel-associated cases of Zika.. "Stealing money from myself" is how Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health describes raiding his agencys malaria, tuberculosis and influenza programs to fund a Zika vaccine.. He needs more cash by the end of June to keep the vaccine on schedule. And theres no guarantee those other critical diseases will recoup about $20 million.. "If we dont get something soon, then were going to have a real problem," Fauci said.. Adding to the stress: What if another health emergency comes along at the same time?. "Its Zika now, but ...

We recommend two important assessments in prioritising research needs in medicines for children: public health assessment,16 comprising the severity and prevalence of disease and the availability of treatment alternatives; and assessment of use. This may comprise the frequency or volume of use and the licensing/labelling status of medicines for children. The use of off label and unlicensed medicines implies that there are no proper labelling and dosing recommendations, which can potentially be harmful to children.17 18 19 20 Therefore off label and unlicensed medicines should be a higher priority for research than licensed/on label medications, especially if no data on safety and efficacy in children are available. We focused on assessing the volume and labelling status to provide knowledge to experts and facilitate research prioritisation that includes both the public health as well as the assessment of use.. Our data on use support the conclusions of the recently published EMEA ...

The government must act soon to change the long-term fiscal path or risk significant disruption to individuals and the economy. Policymakers will need to discuss the entire range of federal activities and spending-entitlement programs, other mandatory spending, discretionary spending, and revenue. Moving forward, the federal government will need to make tough choices in setting priorities and ensuring that spending leads to positive results.. One way to quantify the magnitude of the policy changes needed to address the increasing debt is by calculating the fiscal gap. The fiscal gap represents the difference-or gap-between revenue and programmatic spending (i.e., spending other than interest payments) that would need to be closed immediately and permanently in order to hold debt constant as a share of GDP beginning in 2016 for the 75-year period. The size of the fiscal gap in 2016 under the Baseline Extended simulation is 3.2 percent of GDP; under the Alternative it is 6.1 percent of ...

Its disappointing the White House would reject this common-sense plan to rein in the debt and deficits that are hurting job creation in America. While American families have to set priorities and balance their books, this White House obviously isnt serious about making the same tough choices. While the House is once again acting responsibly, the Administration still wont say what cuts its willing to make to end Washingtons spending binge and the economic uncertainty its creating. This unfortunate veto threat should make clear that the issue is not congressional inaction, but rather the Presidents unwillingness to cut spending and restrain the future growth of our government. If we are going to raise the debt limit and avoid default, the White House must be willing to demonstrate more courage than we have seen to date. The House will proceed as planned with its vote on the Cut, Cap and Balance Act ...

Quality of care for patients with ESRD is an important issue not only for patients and providers, but also for policymakers. As lawmakers consider national health care reform, quality is unarguably a top priority. The kidney care community has shown a proactive commitment and leadership in efforts to continuously improve the care provided dialysis patients.. In 2005, Kidney Care Partners launched the Kidney Care Quality Alliance (KCQA), adopting a forward-looking approach to the quality of kidney care by addressing performance measurement, public reporting and pay-for-performance reporting. Since that time, KCP and KCQA have worked closely with the National Quality Forum (NQF), submitting proposed measures for quality improvement for consideration, of which five received time-limited endorsement; pilot testing of these measures is currently underway. Additionally, the specifications for several more KCQA measures were aligned with CMS measures and also were endorsed by NQF. Notwithstanding KCPs ...

Among the activities to be highlighted: two working groups have been operational since 2010. The WG on Prioritisation of Emerging Substances identifies emerging substances for priority attention (including priority needs for improving existing data, analytical methods, biological tests, etc.). With regard to the specific needs of emerging substances, NORMAN has developed an improved prioritisation methodology[2], which has already been published and applied to an independent dataset of the MODELKEY project[3]. In general, the added value of the NORMAN methodology, compared to the previous prioritisation approaches, is that it is a global scheme which also considers compounds for which not enough data are available and prioritises them by action needed, taking into account the current knowledge gaps. A second WG, on effect-directed analysis (EDA) for hazardous pollutant identification, brings together major European experts in EDA to promote scientific progress in this research field, to identify ...

From the perspective of our nations capital, the economic picture looks bright.

Perhaps it is difficult to understand, in such an environment, why so many pollsters find that the top priority for the American people is the economy, jobs, and unemployment. This is because across the United States, the economic picture is very different. As those who govern closer to the American people, governors know the challenges being faced every day across the country in an economy struggling to recover, where the costs of health care and higher education are soaring, and where millions of citizens have given up hope of finding work..

Mr. BERNANKE. Congressman, I couldnt agree with you more that inflation is a tax and that inflation is currently too high, and it is a top priority of the Federal Reserve to run a policy that is going to bring inflation to an acceptable level consistent with price stability as we go forward. I would make one distinction, which is that what the Federal Reserve can control is the increase in prices on the average, over the overall basket of consumer goods and services. The enormous jumps in oil prices and other commodity prices are to some extent at least due to real factors out of the control of the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve cannot create another barrel of oil. It is the global supply and demand conditions which are affecting those particulars things to the most significant extent, but to the extent that the Fed does have influence on the overall inflation rate, you are absolutely right that it is very important to maintain price stability, and I take that very seriously ...

This issue explores this topic, starting with a major World Bank study and research coming out of Harvard University that urges less reliance on simple formulas and the elusive search for best practices, and greater reliance on deeper economic analysis to identify each countrys binding constraint(s) on growth. Other articles highlight IMF research on pinpointing effective levers for growth in developing countries and Africas experience with growth accelerations. Also in the issue are pieces examining global economic imbalances, rapid credit growth in Eastern and Central Europe, and ways to boost productivity growth in Europe and Japan. In Straight Talk, Raghuram Rajan argues that if we want microfinance to become more than a fad, it has to follow the clear and unsentimental path of adding
If your case was deemed terminal, how would you spend your last few days, weeks, or months of life?. This was just one of the difficult questions on a national survey commissioned by the CCAC. Entitled "Weighing Quality of Life in Cancer", the survey found that an astounding 80% of Canadians were touched by some kind of cancer, either personally or through a friend or relative- and that quality of life during treatment is a top priority.. But what is "quality of life"?. It turns out that "quality of life" is a complex issue that encompasses social, economic and cultural components. For example, one of the top challenges respondents cited was the difficulty of obtaining adequate government benefits and insurance to cover the costs of their treatment. Others found greatest difficulty in finding adequate emotional and psychological support.. On that note, we stand by our assertion that a supported patient is a well-coping patient.

There is currently no FDA approved treatment for ME/CFS. As neither a cause nor cure for ME/CFS has been identified, treatment is directed at relieving symptoms. Although theres no single approved treatment that addresses the disease at its core, there are treatments that can improve symptoms, increase function, and allow people with ME/CFS to engage in activities of daily living.. Learn more in our "Patient Resources" section. ((Link)). While extremely frustrating, individuals with ME/CFS learn over time what works best for them.

While the statement had an apologetic tone, it also said, "Officials also noted that per the agreement, the settlement is not to be construed as an admission of liability.". "We have worked hard to learn from this incident to improve patient safety at UTMC and have shared those lessons with other transplant programs and hospitals," the statement said. The result has been a staff of dedicated UTMC employees whose top priority is to ensure that Toledos only academic medical center is among the safest in the country.". The family must pay its own legal fees, which could consume a third of the settlement. Additionally, the settlement requires the Fudacz attorneys to hold $12,040 from the settlement proceeds in an account to reimburse Medicare for its potential expenses in the case. Court costs were assessed against UTMC, the record said.. Ms. Fudacz, who was 24 at the time of the Aug. 10, 2012, kidney-transplant surgery, was supposed to have been given a kidney taken from her younger brother, but ...
This change in culture provides an opportunity for radiologists to guide and support our clinician colleagues during the transition to value-based care. Effectively guiding referring providers toward appropriate imaging use will rely on improving clinicians knowledge and effective communication among all members involved in the care of patients, which includes radiologists. These goals can be achieved on a clinician-to-radiologist level or as a part of larger clinician-support projects and initiatives.. To effectively influence clinicians ordering behavior, improving knowledge about imaging appropriateness must be made a top priority. Furthermore, optimal communication between radiologists and referrers is critical because the effective exchange of information can both prevent unnecessary or inappropriate testing and help ensure that patients experience fewer delays in care.71,72 Continued strong bonds between radiologists and clinicians will also allow development of educational and ...

When considering pulling the lever for McCain, it would be good to remember that weve had 26 years with Republican Presidents in office since Roe was decided in 1973. What has changed? We need a strong willingness from our nominee to work with Congress to get something done, not simply willing to sign whatever nominally pro-life legislation crosses his desk. Our nominee needs to make this a top priority. How is that going to happen with a man like McCain, who said as recently as 1999, "Id love to see a point where Roe vs. Wade is irrelevant, and could be repealed because abortion is no longer necessary. But certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe vs. Wade, which would then force women in America to [undergo] illegal and dangerous operations." ...

Throughout history the protection of our society and environment has never been a top priority for business. Yet, in the past few months Ive read multiple articles describing the horrors of plastic grocery bags and how we have to eliminate their use.

What I cant understand is why the large grocery chains want to eliminate them instead of changing the way they are produced. This solution would be a
