In this study we showed that mechanisms in paediatric asthma care that lead to deficiencies in the care process for ethnic minority children were mainly related to non-adherence. It seems that most factors our respondents discussed (such as influence of social context factors and difficulties in understanding asthma as a chronic disease) are not related to ethnic minority patients in particular. Rather, they emphasise certain aspects of asthma care that are likely to create problems in the general patient population.. Educational literature describes different stages of competence. In the stage "conscious incompetence," care providers recognise mistakes and difficulties in their actions, and will be able to report them. However, this stage is preceded by the stage of "unconscious incompetence": a stage in which learners (or care providers) are unaware of their incompetence [17] and therefore cannot report them. If applied to our study, this theory means that apart from the difficulties care ...
In the Netherlands, non-Western ethnic minority women make their first antenatal visit later than native Dutch women. Timely entry into antenatal care is important as it provides the opportunity for prenatal screening and the detection of risk factors for adverse pregnancy outcomes. In this study we explored whether womens timely entry is influenced by their neighborhood. Moreover, we assessed whether ethnic minority density (the proportion of ethnic minorities in a neighborhood) influences Western and non-Western ethnic minority womens chances of timely entry into care differently. We hypothesized that ethnic minority density has a protective effect against non-Western womens late entry into care. Data on time of entry into care and other individual-level characteristics were obtained from the Netherlands Perinatal Registry (2000-2008; 97% of all pregnancies). We derived neighborhood-level data from three other national databases. We included 1,137,741 pregnancies of women who started care ...
Although sociological literature reveals scattered references towomen as a minority group, comparable in certain resepcts to racial,ethnic, and national minorities, no systematic investigation has beenundertaken as to what extent the term "minority group" is applicableto women. That there has been little serious consideration of womenas a minority group among sociologists is manifested in the recentlyissued index to Thc American Journal of Sociology whereinunder the heading of "Minority Groups" there appears: "See Jews;Morale; Negro; Races and Nationalities; Religious Groups; Sects."There is no cross-reference to women, but such reference isfound under the heading "Family.". Yet it may well be that regarding women as a minority group may beproductive of fresh insights and suggest leads for further research.The purpose of this paper is to apply to women some portion of thatbody of sociological theory and methodology customarily used forinvestigating such minority groups as Negroes, Jews, ...
Despite documented health disparities among people from black and ethnic minority groups, the literature on interventions aiming to improve health and social outcomes for this disadvantaged population is scant. People from black and ethnic minority groups experiencing homelessness and mental illness face additional challenges, as traditional housing and support strategies may not adequately address their needs. To our knowledge, this is the first study examining the effectiveness of a HF program which has been specifically adapted for this population. Enhancing HF with anti-racist/anti-oppressive principles of practice for black and ethnic minority homeless adults with mental illness successfully improved housing stability and community functioning for this population, compared to usual care, at the Toronto site of the At Home/Chez Soi trial. Our findings are consistent with previous studies of HF using rent supplements and mental health services (ACT or ICM) which report improvements in housing ...

Introduction. Outline and account for the disadvantages experienced by minority ethnic groups in British society. Society is made up of a number of social divisions including age, sex, ethnicity, income, wealth and sexual orientation. Many theorists and critics have their own definition of social divisions. For example, Bilton et al (2002, p.70) states: In broad terms, the concept of social divisions refers to ways in which, either as individuals or more commonly as members of social groupings, we construct social differences among ourselves.... There has been a growing interest in the study of race and ethnicity in Britain over the course of the twentieth century. I, therefore, intend to discuss the difficulties faced by ethnic minority groups in Britain. It is also important to examine how ethnic minority groups are disadvantaged from access to other social rights - such as the rights to housing, education and employment (Ginsburg, 1998; Macey, 1995), which is what I intend to discuss ...

In this edition of reSearch we explore the dual status of individuals with disabilities who are also members of racial or ethnic minority groups. Each persons experience of disability is shaped by their culture and community. Minorities with disabilities face a range of issues relating to access, health, and independence. As members of a minority group they experience barriers of a traditionally underserved community, and as individuals with disabilities they experience additional barriers within their own communities. Minorities with disabilities face higher unemployment and poverty rates, as well as less access to services, than their non-minority counterparts. Wright and Leung (1993) present the National Council on Disability findings on minorities with disabilities in their report to the President and Congress stating that "As a group, [they] are more at risk, have fewer personal and family resources, have less knowledge and understanding of externally available resources, and fare less ...

The objective of the project is a test-of-concept of an intervention to reduce the effects of the perception of discrimination on the care of patients with chronic illness. Perception of discrimination manifests itself as stereotype threat. We hypothesize that stereotype threat impairs communication between minority patients and their physicians because of increased stress and diminished trust, resulting in interactions that are less successful at enhancing patient self-efficacy, in turn resulting in lower rates of adherence with anti-hypertensive medication.. The intervention is a self-affirmation exercise performed prior to a patient-physician visit. A similar intervention has been shown to reduce the racial gap in academic performance in middle school classrooms.. We will explore the mechanistic effects of the intervention by analysis of audiotapes of patient-provider visits following the intervention. We will measure the effect of the intervention on minority hypertensive patients adherence ...
Heard this before?. "The average test scores of minority students admitted to UW-Madison are lower than those of nonminority students admitted to UW-Madison. This is simply not fair, and is evidence of discrimination." In other words, if minorities and nonminorities were treated equally in the admissions process, there would be no test score differences.. This claim is common and demonstrably incorrect.. Test scores in the general population are lower for minority students than for nonminority students. This means that even if UW-Madison were to rely solely on test scores for purposes of determining admission, and had the exact same cutoff point for admission (regardless of race), the average scores of minority students would be lower than those of nonminority students. In case thats unclear, try this. Say instead of a test requirement we imposed a weight requirement: you must be at least 200 pounds to be admitted. The proportion of football players admitted to UW-Madison would undoubtedly ...
Ethnic minorities are set to make up a fifth of the UK population in 40 years, a University of Leeds study predicts.. It says the proportion of black, Asian and other ethnic minorities will rise from 8% of the population, as recorded in the 2001 census, to 20% by 2051.. Researchers say the population will reach nearly 78 million-up from 59 million in 2001.. One of the authors, Professor Philip Rees, said the UKs ethnic make-up was "evolving significantly".. He said: "Groups outside the white British majority are increasing in size and share, not just in the areas of initial migration, but throughout the country, and our projections suggest that this trend is set to continue through to 2051.. "At a regional level, ethnic minorities will shift out of deprived inner city areas to more affluent areas, which echoes the way white groups have migrated in the past.. "In particular, black and Asian populations in the least deprived local authorities will increase significantly.". The Leeds study ...
Results: Of the 106 diversity leaders invited, 89 (84.0%) responded and 78 (73.6%) provided a working definition of URM. Most programs (40/78; 51%) used the 2003 AAMC definition of URM, which includes racial/ethnic groups that are underrepresented in medicine relative to local and national demographics. Only 14.1% (11/78) used the pre-2003 AAMC definition, which included only African Americans, Mexican Americans, Native Americans, and mainland Puerto Ricans. Approximately one-third (23/78; 29.5%) also considered other diversity factors, such as socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, and disability, in defining URM. Fifty-eight respondents (74.4%) confirmed that their diversity programs targeted specific groups. ...

Philadelphia Health Management Corporation (PHMC) is evaluating the Preventing AIDS Through Live Movement and Sound (PALMS) group-level intervention for high-risk, incarcerated or adjudicated youth. PALMS uses three theater-based sessions to increase knowledge about HIV/AIDS, increase HIV testing, and reduce risky sexual behavior through increased self-efficacy. The intervention is delivered by peers, and peers work with the intervention team to use evaluation results to improve the program. The evaluation will recruit male adolescents, aged 12 to 18 years, who are residing in juvenile justice or drug treatment facilities in Philadelphia. The evaluation design uses concurrent intervention (N=132) and comparison (N=132) groups. Data will be collected at baseline, immediate post-intervention, and at a 6-month post-intervention follow-up. The intent of this program is to support the evaluation of an existing intervention and provide feedback to the implementing organization for improved program ...
Children who experience discrimination are more susceptible to becoming depressed, new studies suggest.. The study, conducted by Lee M. Pachter, DO, co-author of the study and professor of pediatrics at Drexel University College of Medicine and St. Christophers Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, is based on the realization that racism is an added and extremely potent psychosocial stressor in minority children. His research took the lead in trying to find more concrete affects discrimination has on a childs self-esteem and overall mental health.. During this study, 277 minorities between the ages of 9 and 18 were provided a 23-item questionnaire to fill out. The questions dealt with how the subjects saw racism play out in their everyday lives.. The group consisted of the following minorities:. * 104 Latinos who were predominantly Puerto Ricans. * 85 African Americans. * 20 West Indian and Caribbean. * 53 multiracial. * 15 fell within a category listed as other. {snip}. {snip} Children sited ...

Using data from a large national English patient survey we found substantially more negative experiences reported by ethnic minorities (particularly South Asians and Chinese), younger patients and those with poor self-rated health. Differences by gender and socioeconomic deprivation were limited and inconsistent. A substantial proportion of ethnic differences reflected concentration of ethnic minority patients in low-performing practices (consistent with the minorities concentrated in poor practices hypothesis, table 1), but concentration in low-scoring practices explained little of the large differences observed among patients of different age and self-rated health. In spite of large within-practice differences among patients of different ethnicity and self-rated health, primary care practices varied substantially in respect of these differences and in some practices South Asian and Chinese patients evaluated their experience similarly or more positively compared with White patients. This ...

Now Ill move on to todays topic, the evaluation of the Roadmap 2008-2013. I can only observe that the objectives of the current Roadmap and those of the Association des universités de la francophonie canadienne are similar, since they concern the participation of all Canadians in linguistic duality and support for official language minority communities. The current Roadmaps financial contribution to the influence of the association and its members has been modest, but I cannot say enough about the positive effect it has had.. The association received Roadmap funding for a project in 2009-2010 which enabled it to grant support bursaries for field research on minority francophones in Canada. Worth $7,500 each, the bursaries funded by Canadian Heritage have enabled eight students whose masters or doctoral theses concerned francophone minority communities to conduct research directly in those communities. The bursary recipients came from the Université de Moncton, the University of Ottawa and ...
Im if anything a Semitophile, so if youre a visitor, dont infer Im trying to justify anti-Semitism. However, I think its reasonable to look at human groups historically and call various strategies as parasitic or predatory. Indeed, given the zeitgeist strongly discourages allegations of parasitism because this is considered piling on minority groups, discouraging diversity, etc., it is probable that parasitic behavior is more common, because it doesnt have to withstand criticisms of parasitism the way majority groups have to withstand the negative PR of predation. For example, note that Noam Chomsky basically defines evil as bad behavior combined with total power, thus making the US the monster of the twentieth century as a consequence of the size of its economy (and, in his mind, the relative virtue of the weak Palestinians vs. the stronger Israelis). Its reasonable to assume majority groups will have more problems exploiting minority groups (predation) than minority groups will have ...
In fact, Im willing to bet that out of all men, white men are the most insecure because theyre almost always the first to place stereotypes on minority men as a way of further increasing their social advantage. Their tactic is to gain sexual rights to minority women but at the same time, keeping white women from dating minority men. The media always reflects your true feelings on your outlook in life. Thus, if white men control the media, what they show is actually what they think of you ...
This study aimed at researching the quality of social and health care services from minority ethnic older persons perspective. This was done by identifying the dimensions of the services where quality was experienced as poorest as well as studying the factors that influenced the experienced quality of the services. The client based quality was analysed as the congruence between the clients expectations and perceptions. The information gathered from elderly people belonging to ethnic minorities was compared with data from social and health care service personnel. With the help of the analyses of experienced quality, the study aimed at identifying ways to develop and organise the social and health care services so that they would provide high quality services also for the elderly clients belonging to ethnic minorities. The data of this study consisted of two samples. The service user sample included constructed interviews with 119 Russians, 50 Vietnamese and 126 Sami respondents. The service ...

RE: China Sterilising Ethnic Minority Women in Xinjiang, Report Says The thing about the U.S. is that despite its great past accomplishments, the seeds of its destruction were always there. "Equality" is a lie, and a dangerous lie at that because if taken seriously it can only lead to where we now find ourselves. Since its a matter of faith that Blacks are "equal", their glaring inequality in everything consequential is only allowed to be attributed to the hobgoblin of "racism", which is to say, to White malice. That leads to the logical conclusion that Whites deserve to be punished, if not exterminated. Aside from race, the folly of a republican or democratic form of government-despite the insistence by "conservatives" that a republic is far better than a democracy, they are really a Latin and a Greek word for the same thing-was well-known to anyone familiar with the history of ancient Athens and Rome. In fact, there were warnings from Europeans to Americans about attempting what had always ...

Although a new redistricting plan for the state House and Senate was signed into law two weeks ago, the public remains in the dark as to whether the lines that were drawn ensure fair representation for racial minorities. That is the gist of a detailed four-page letter sent by six community organizations to the states redistricting consultant, Kimball Brace, seeking an explanation for his failure to use or release any racial bloc voting analysis despite being required to do so under his contract with the state.. The letter - signed by representatives of Common Cause RI, the RI ACLU, the Urban League of RI, NAACP Providence Branch, ULMAC, and the National Coalition of 100 Black Women RI Chapter - notes that the potential consequences of the failure to use the missing data "are significant: despite an increase in the minority population since the last census, both the House and Senate, under the newly-approved plan, have the same number of majority-minority districts as they did ten years ago. ...
The increases were especially large among those 65 years and older, minorities and women, researchers report online August 9 in JAMA Psychiatry.. The United States has a serious drinking problem.. The study does not explain why alcohol drinking and abuse increased, but researchers suggest some explanations could include changing social norms and alcohol consumption as a coping device.. Ethnic minority populations and Americans with lower education and income levels also had much more noticeable increases between the two surveys, according to the study. In this study, high-risk drinking was defined as exceeding the daily drinking limits at least weekly during the prior 12 months. However, by 2012-2013 the rate was about 13 percent (nearly 30 million people).. But high-risk and problem drinking increased far more dramatically.. "Light drinking has been shown to be helpful for peoples health overall, but heavy drinking can lead to some harms and impairment", Deborah Hasinthe studys lead author ...
