TY - JOUR. T1 - Method of determining protein conformations by the two-dimensional nuclear overhauser enhancement spectroscopy data. AU - Sherman, S. A.. AU - Andrianov, A. M.. AU - Akhrem, A. A.. PY - 1987/4. Y1 - 1987/4. N2 - A method is suggested to determine the most probable values of the angles, y of the protein backbone by the data on the availability and absence of d connectivities in the two-dimensional nuclear Overhauser enhancement spectra. In view of this, the dependences of the protonproton distances in dipeptide units of L-amino acid residues on the dihedral angles tp, y, x, are considered and the conformational states of amino acid residues of the proteins with the known spatial structure are analysed statistically. The potentialities of the method are assessed with the aid of model spectral nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) parameters obtained from the X-ray data for the bovine pancreatic trypsin inhibitor and avian pancreatic polypeptide. It is shown that the developed procedure ...

Some inspectors general, the heads of the offices, are appointed by the president and confirmed by the senate.[10] For example, both the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Labor and the inspector general of the U.S. Agency for International Development are presidentially appointed. The remaining inspectors general are designated by their respective agency heads,[11] such as the U.S. Postal Service inspector general.[12] Presidentially appointed IGs can only be removed, or terminated, from their positions by the President of the United States, whereas designated inspectors general can be terminated by the agency head.[13] However, in both cases Congress must be notified of the termination, removal, or reassignment. While the IG Act of 1978 requires that inspectors general be selected based upon their qualifications and not political affiliation, presidentially appointed inspectors general are considered political appointees and are often selected, if only in part and in addition to their ...
Two new daphnane-type diterpene esters, yuanhuahine (1) and yuanhualine (2), were isolated from the flowers of Daphne genkwa (Thymelaeaceae) along with three known diterpene esters, yuanhuacine (3), yuanhuadine (4), and yuanhuagine (5). Their structures were determined by a combination of 1D and 2D NMR experiments, including correlation spectroscopy (COSY), heteronuclear multiple quantum correlation (HMQC), heteronuclear multiple bond correlation (HMBC), and rotating frame Overhauser enhancement spectroscopy (ROESY) sequences, and mass spectrometry. All the isolated compounds were tested against A549 human lung cancer cells and MRC-5 human normal lung epithelial cells. Compounds 1-5 exhibited potent anti-proliferative effects against A549 lung cancer cells with IC50 values of 12-53 nM, whereas these compounds were relatively non-cytotoxic against MRC-5 normal lung epithelial cells. © 2010 Pharmaceutical Society of Japan ...
Our second and third hypotheses related to predictors for 12-month mental health service utilisation in patients with depressive symptoms. We hypothesised that a positive intention to seek help from a healthcare professional and severity of depression could predict subsequent 12-month mental health service use. From our findings, however, a positive intention to seek help from a mental health professional and a higher severity of depression had no effect on subsequent mental health service use. Using Ajzens theory of planned behaviour,6 an individuals behaviour may be influenced by their own personal beliefs (patients own attitudes), subjective norms (the social norms) and control beliefs (perceived practical barriers).6 ,21 In our study population, it appears that the patients intentions regarding help-seeking was an insignificant contributor to subsequent mental health service utilisation. Conversely, identification of depression by a doctor was a very strong predictor for subsequent ...
Purpose of review: Adolescents with mental health problems often require transition of care from child and adolescent to adult mental health services. This review is a synthesis of current research and policy literature on transition to describe the barriers at the interface between child and adolescent mental health services and adult mental health services and outcomes of poor transition.. Recent findings: Adolescence is a risk period for emergence of serious mental disorders. Child and adolescent mental health services and adult mental health services use rigid age cut-offs to delineate service boundaries, creating discontinuities in provision of care. Adolescent mental health services are patchy across the world. Several recent studies have confirmed that problems occur during transition in diverse settings across several countries. In physical health, there are emerging models of practice to improve the process and outcomes of transition, but there is very little comparable literature in ...

OJIN: The Online Journal of Issues in Nursing. Vol. 11, No 1.. DOI: 10.3912/OJIN.Vol11No01LegCol01. Introduction to HIPAA. In 1996, the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was adopted as a step toward reshaping government health care. Referred to as the HIPAA, it enables portability of health care insurance coverage for workers and their families when they change or lose their jobs (Title I), sets a standard or benchmark for safeguarding electronic and paper exchange of health information, and requires national identifiers for providers, health plans, and employers (Title II). The final policy implementation rule outlines the entities affected by the legislation as health care providers, health plans, health care clearinghouses, and vendors offering computer software ...

Edited by Dr. Miguel Ángel Royo-Bordonada. This thematic series on public health ethics follows a previous Public Health Reviews issue on the topic of public health ethics training in the European region, to emphasize the neglect and the importance of the topic for public health education in Europe. The current issue evolved from a Working Group of the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER) which was mandated to develop public health ethics curriculum materials for European schools of public health, as well as for practitioners and policy makers. Training of public health professionals in this field is essential to ensure confidence, credibility and public trust, when addressing the wide range of ethical conflicts that arise frequently in public health policy and practice.. Publication charges for this collection were funded by ASPHER. Articles have undergone the journals standard peer-review process overseen by the Guest Editor, who declares no competing ...
Intent: We will describe a partnership between three universities, two in Norway and one in Canada, in order to illustrate how the integration of occupational science and public health perspectives on diverse health determinants contributed to interdisciplinary graduate education through a collaborative international exchange. Two specific initiatives will be addressed: the development of integrated occupational science and public health curriculum materials, and the participation of students from each country in courses at the institutions overseas. Argument: The conditions of everyday life and the occupations these conditions enable are well recognized as key determinants of health and well-being within occupational science, occupational therapy and public health. Within occupational science in particular, there is growing recognition that full realization of the vision of health promotion through occupation requires expanding beyond individual-level approaches in order to address socio-political

West Nile virus (WNV) is a vector-borne illness that can severely affect human health. After introduction on the East Coast in 1999, the virus quickly spread and became established across the continental United States. However, there have been significant variations in levels of human WNV incidence spatially and temporally. In order to quantify these variations, we used Kulldorffs spatial scan statistic and Anselins Local Morans I statistic to uncover spatial clustering of human WNV incidence at the county level in the continental United States from 2002-2008. These two methods were applied with varying analysis thresholds in order to evaluate sensitivity of clusters identified. The spatial scan and Local Morans I statistics revealed several consistent, important clusters or hot-spots with significant year-to-year variation. In 2002, before the pathogen had spread throughout the country, there were significant regional clusters in the upper Midwest and in Louisiana and Mississippi. The largest and

Self-rated health status (SRHS) is a reliable and valid measure for assessing the subjective and objective health of individuals. Previous studies have either focused predominantly on the elderly or investigated only a narrow range of factors potentially associated with SRHS. In examining student populations, these past studies were limited to single countries. The objectives of this study were to assess which candidate variables were independently associated with SRHS in university students, to compare these variables by country and by gender, and to investigate which of the variables was most important as a rating frame for SRHS. The data is from the Cross-National Student Health Survey, conducted in 2005 in universities in Germany, Bulgaria, and Poland (n = 2103; mean age = 20.7 years). SRHS was assessed with a single question using a five-point scale ranging from excellent to poor. The study also measured a wide range of variables including: physical and psychological health, studying, social

Beginning in July 2000, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in collaboration with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), expanded the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) to collect data on all types and causes of injuries treated in a representative sample of United States hospitals with emergency departments (ED). This system is called the NEISS-All Injury Program (NEISS-AIP). The NEISS-AIP is designed to provide national incidence estimates of all types and external causes of nonfatal injuries and poisonings treated in United States hospital EDs. Data on injury-related visits are being obtained from a national sample of 66 out of 100 NEISS hospitals that were selected as a stratified probability sample of hospitals in the United States and its territories with a minimum of 6 beds and a 24-hour ED. The sample includes separate strata for very large, large, medium, and small ...

Examines and compares the health status and health service utilization of women and men in a provincial correctional jail in Atlantic Canada. Finds that prisoners experienced a number of physical and mental health issues and a large proportion used health services during incarceration. The quality and accessibility of health services played a significant role in how participants viewed health care in jail. Sex and gender are shown to influence the health status and use of health services among provincial prisoners. Females report more heath issues and poorer overall health, as well as more difficulties accessing health services during incarceration than male prisoners. Race also plays a role in health status and health service utilization. Aboriginal prisoners rate their overall physical and mental health poorer than non-Aboriginals. They also report a greater need for health services, but use them less than non-Aboriginal prisoners.. ...
PREVENTION OF DENTAL CARIES THROUGH THE EFFECTIVE USE OF FLUORIDE - THE PUBLIC HEALTH APPROACH. Background: The World Health Organization (WHO) emphasizes that dental caries is a severe public health problem across the world. The current global and regional patterns of dental caries reflect distinct risk profiles of countries which relate to the structure of the society, living conditions, lifestyles, and the existence of preventive oral health programmes. Research conducted in high income countries documents that systematic use of fluoride reduces the burden of dental caries; such research is scarce in low and middle income countries.. Objectives: This article reviews the evidence on effective use of fluoride, highlights the public health approach to fluoridation, and clarifies how automatic fluoridation contributes to breaking social inequities in dental caries.. Data collection: Scientific publications on fluoride administration stored in PubMed/Medline and caries data from the WHO ...

1. A patient with familial adult-onset hypophosphataemia, whose myopathy was closely related to the plasma phosphate concentration, was investigated by phosphorus nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31P n.m.r.) in vivo of the right flexor digitorum superficialis muscle.. 2. During hypophosphataemia induced by stopping oral phosphate a significant reduction in measured muscle strength occurred, but the ratios of the intramyocellular levels of phosphocreatine (PCr), adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and inorganic phosphate (Pi) remained unchanged at rest. During exercise these levels changed, as did the intramyocellular pH, but they did not differ from the pattern previously recorded in normal subjects.. 3. In four adults with inherited infantile-onset hypophosphataemia (vitamin D-resistant rickets, VDRR) without myopathy, the n.m.r. measurements were normal at rest and during exercise.. 4. In one patient with inherited hyperphosphataemia (tumoral calcinosis) the resting PCr: Pi ratio was ...

A number of copolymers between styrene (St) or 4-azidomethylstyrene (N 3St) and 2,3,4,5,6-pentafluorostyrene (FSt) have been prepared by atom-transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) and conventional free radical polymerization (FRP). The mode of monomer alternation in copolymers has been established unambiguously using heteronuclear multiple bond correlation (HMBC) NMR. The degree and nature of monomer alternation was found to be strongly dependent on both the solvent (or lack thereof) and the polymerization initiator. These results are in contrast to previously published studies, which rely primarily on classic analysis of monomer reactivity ratios. We proceeded to independently functionalize the N3St and FSt moieties using orthogonal click chemistries: copper-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) and fluoroarene-thiol coupling (FTC). An alternating copolymer bearing -NH2 and -SO3 - functional groups was found to be a competent organocatalyst for a Henry reaction between benzaldehyde ...

In order to achieve a learning health care system in which quality and effectiveness of health care are improved as costs are lowered, leveraging electronic health record data for purposes beyond treatment and payment will need to become easier and more widespread. This paper explores the current legal and policy challenges associated with secondary use of electronic clinical data, including those inherently relying on Institutional Review Board (IRB) review, and discusses a number of strategies that early health IT-adopters have employed to address them. The paper closes by noting potential changes to federal research rules that could ease restrictions on research in the future and by raising one additional policy challenge - support for health services research infrastructure - that, if unresolved, could create obstacles to further progress. ...

Results: Seropositivity (43%), usually unknown (72% of seropositives), was predicted by injection drug use, alcohol use, older age, and risky sexual behavior. No regular source of care, risky sexual behavior, less case management, and greater age predicted not knowing ones positive status. Health insurance, younger age, alcohol use, perceived bad health and more medical conditions predicted emergency room (ER) use; ER use was less likely among seropositives. Hospitalizations were predicted by more medical conditions and greater percentage of life homeless and were less frequent among African Americans and males. Ambulatory visits were predicted by a regular source of care, case management, more education and perceived bad health; they were less likely among seropositives ...

The aim of this study was to describe the impact of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) on health status in the Burden of Obstructive Lung Disease (BOLD) populations. We conducted a cross-sectional, general population-based survey in 11 985 subjects from 17 countries. We measured spirometric lung function and assessed health status using the Short Form 12 questionnaire. The physical and mental health component scores were calculated. Subjects with COPD (post-bronchodilator forced expiratory volume in 1 s/forced vital capacity |0.70, n = 2269) had lower physical component scores (44±10 versus 48±10 units, p|0.0001) and mental health component scores (51±10 versus 52±10 units, p = 0.005) than subjects without COPD. The effect of reported heart disease, hypertension and diabetes on physical health component scores (-3 to -4 units) was considerably less than the effect of COPD Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease grade 3 (-8 units) or 4 (-11 units). Dyspnoea was the most
CLIFFORD, J. [¶1] Rosemary Fecteau, widow of Jack Fecteau, appeals from the judgment entered in the Superior Court (Kennebec County, Calkins, J.) affirming the State Employee Health Commissions determination that costs incurred for the removal of her late husbands amalgam fillings were not covered by his employee insurance with Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Maine (Blue Cross). Fecteau contends that the commission erred in its determination that coverage did not exist for the removal of the fillings. We affirm the judgment. [¶2] Jack Fecteau was employed by the Maine Department of Human Services and participated in the State Employees Health Insurance Program. Pursuant to 5 M.R.S.A. § 285 (1989 & Supp. 1996), Blue Cross contracted with the Commission to provide group medical coverage to State employees. Jack was diagnosed with interstitial lung disease.

As the nineteenth century drew to a close, the needs of hospitals prompted the establishment of training schools for nurses and the germination of the concept of professional nursing. The first such training school in New Hampshire was opened at the New Hampshire State Hospital in 1888.. As a result of these developments, nurses began to organize themselves for the improvement of patient care. The forerunner of the American Nurses Association was formed in 1896 and that of the National League for Nursing in 1893.. In New Hampshire, nurses who had graduated from the states training school programs were also feeling the need to organize, and in April 1906 fifty of them met in Concord to discuss the establishment of a permanent association. A month later, on May 28, 1906, at a second meeting held at the state hospital, the Graduate Nurses Association of New Hampshire was formed. It changed its name to the New Hampshire State Nurses Association in the 1940s. (For more information, see A Brief ...

Justice Reinvestment in Oklahoma 1 Justice Reinvestment in Oklahoma Analysis and Policy Framework Background IN JANUARY 2011, GOVERNOR MARY FALLIN, Speaker of the House Kris Steele, Senate Presi-dent Pro Tempore Brian Bingman, and Supreme Court Justice James Edmondson expressed interest in employing a justice reinvestment strategy, which is a data-driven approach to contain corrections spending and reinvest a portion of the savings generated in strat-egies that will increase public safety. These state lead-ers wrote to the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), a division of the U.S. Department of Justice, and the Pew Center on the States (Pew) seeking intensive tech-nical assistance, which was approved by BJA and Pew in May 2011. As a result, the Council of State Govern-ments Justice Center (CSG Justice Center) -the tech-nical assistance provider working in partnership with BJA and Pew -launched a comprehensive analysis of the state s criminal justice system. To guide the CSG Justice Center s ...
BACKGROUND: Migration, for various reasons, continues to increase the immigrant population of Norway. Few studies compare adolescent ethnic Norwegians (EN) with adolescent immigrants for their health status and health behavior. This study describes differences in health status and health behavior between adolescent EN and immigrant groups from Pakistan, Somalia and Vietnam (PSV) seen as one group, and also between EN and each of the three immigrant groups. It also examines whether age at arrival in Norway and parental education impact health status and health behavior for each of the three immigrant groups. METHODS: In 2006, the Norwegian Social Research (NOVA), in cooperation with the city of Oslo (Drug Competence Center), carried out a questionnaire survey in Oslo schools for 11,500 pupils aged 14-17. 10,880 individuals answered the questionnaire (response rate of 93%). Health status in terms of self-assessed health, mental health status and chronic physical illness and health behavior in ...
Appleseed was founded in 1991 concentrating in providing adult mental health services; counseling, case management, crisis intervention, pre-hospitalization screening, diagnosis and medication/somatic.. In 1993 the agency added housing services for low and moderate income people. Two apartments were purchased in 1994 through a grant from the Ohio Department of Mental Health to house individuals with severe mental disability.. Services for children and families were added in 1995 and Appleseed became a full service mental health agency.. Under the umbrella of Appleseed the following supporting programs are also provided to Ashland County community members: Rape Crisis Domestic Violence Safe Haven Shelter, Community/School Liaison program, Keeping Families Strong home-based services, and the Supported Employment program.. Since its founding the agency has provided mental health services to the Ashland community. The agency has grown from its beginning with 12 employees serving only adults seeking ...
Phospholipid patterns of 15 representative strains of the genus Amycolatopsis were recorded by two-dimensional thin-layer chromatography. The structure analysis of the isolated phospholipids was verified by fast atom bombardment-mass spectroscopy. The positive- and negative-ion spectra of the partially purified phospholipid fractions qualitatively reflect their distinctive composition. All strains contained diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, and phosphatidylinositol. Two different types of phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylmethylethanolamine were detected, viz., compounds with or without hydroxy fatty acids. These phospholipid patterns underline the integrity of the genus. Fast atom bombardment-mass spectrometry analysis of phospholipid patterns may serve as an aid for differentiation of bacterial species.
A new survey indicates that small hospitals expect bigger hospitals to lead the drive toward a new health delivery model, where clinically integrated networks will provide care and insure the patients receiving it.. The survey, from the New York-based consultancy firm, Kurt Salmon, discovered that 77 percent of respondents see clinical integration initiatives occurring in their markets. Eighty-one percent of the community hospital executives surveyed said they believe clinically integrated networks will develop their own insurance product or develop one through collaboration with a payer.. The survey also revealed that most are under the belief that large health systems and hospitals will develop clinically integrated networks. Only 18.5 percent of respondents believed hospitals with under 300 beds could build one, while 61 percent see large regional health systems in their markets positioning themselves to own the entire integrated care continuum. Large, urban hospitals are three times more ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Controlling the cost of chronic diseases remains one of the vexing problems of developed and developing nations alike. Taiwan, faced with rapidly escalating healthcare costs associated with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) services utilization, imposed an outpatient dialysis global budget (ODBG) on outpatient dialysis care. This study, using a before and after study design with a comparison group, assessed the impact of this policy innovation on outpatient, inpatient and emergency room utilization. Using a difference in difference (DID) strategy and the generalized estimating equation (GEE) approach, this study found providers responded to these changes through cost reduction and revenue enhancement strategies. This study extends our understanding of provider responses to changes in reimbursement policies that target one segment of the continuum of care required by chronic disease patients.
The etiology and pathogenesis of pancreatitis remains unclear. In the presence of pancreatic inflammation, metabolite abnormalities appear before transformation of tissue structure and changes in functions occur. Detection of abnormalities in metabolite levels facilitates a greater understanding of the pathophysiological events and aids in the early diagnosis of the disease. In this study, metabolic profiles from the pancreas of Wistar rats were examined using high-resolution proton magic angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance (MAS NMR) spectroscopy to investigate the metabolite indicator(s) of acute necrotizing pancreatitis (ANP) and chronic pancreatitis (CP). The animals were divided into three groups: those with histologically confirmed ANP (n=7), those with CP (n=6) and a control group (n=9). The processed NMR spectra were analyzed using principal component analysis (PCA) to extract characteristic metabolites of ANP and CP. Levels of leucine, isoleucine and valine were increased in the ...

The counteranion exchange of quaternary 1,2,3-triazolium salts was examined using a simple method that permitted halide ions to be swap for a variety of anions using an anion exchange resin (A¯ form). The method was applied to 1,2,3-triazolium-based ionic liquids and the iodideto- anion exchange proceeded in excellent to quantitative yields, concomitantly removing halide impurities. Additionally, an anion exchange resin (N3¯ form) was used to obtain the benzyl azide from benzyl halide under mild reaction. Likewise, following a similar protocol, bis(azidomethyl)arenes were also synthesized in excellent yields. The results of a proton NMR spectroscopic study of simple azolium-based ion pairs are discussed, with attention focused on the significance of the charged-assisted ( ...
A metabonomics method using 1H nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1HNMR) was applied to obtain a systematic view of the development and progression of postmenopausal osteoporosis. Using partial least squares discriminant analysis (PLS-DA), 26 and 34 characteristic resonances were found respectively in urine and plasma of ovariectomized rats (Variable importance, VIP value ≥1.0), and the significant altered metabolites identified in the plasma and urine were 10 and 9, respectively. Changes in these metabolites were related to the pathways of lipid, energy and amino acid metabolism, some of which involved the oxidative system. The described method was also used to analyze the therapeutic effects of Er-Xian Decoction (EXD), a traditional Chinese medicine widely used in the clinical treatment of osteoporosis in China. The results showed that EXD administration could provide satisfactory effects on osteoporosis through partially regulating the perturbed pathways of lipid, energy and amino acid

Rural areas in developing counties lack transportation for health delivery partly because of the geography of area [4], individual lifestyles, low household prioritization on health, and inadequacy of policy to provide transportation for health delivery as shown by our results. This challenges the effectiveness of primary health delivery programmes and strategies implemented to increase access to maternal and child health services in particular. This paper demonstrates the need for effective transportation in health delivery particularly in developing countries [11, 13] where ambulance services may not be efficient in supporting access to critical health services, and presents a framework for sustainable transportation services driven by community participation.. In the construct of the current paradigm of PHC in Ghana, referral is relied heavily upon because the main services provided under the CHPS strategy are preventive health and basic health care. This makes transportation issues very ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - A membrane inlet mass spectrometry system for noble gases at natural abundances in gas and water samples. AU - Visser, Ate. AU - Singleton, Michael J.. AU - Hillegonds, Darren J.. AU - Velsko, Carol A.. AU - Moran, Jean E.. AU - Esser, Bradley K.. PY - 2013/11/15. Y1 - 2013/11/15. N2 - Rationale Noble gases dissolved in groundwater can reveal paleotemperatures, recharge conditions, and precise travel times. The collection and analysis of noble gas samples are cumbersome, involving noble gas purification, cryogenic separation and static mass spectrometry. A quicker and more efficient sample analysis method is required for introduced tracer studies and laboratory experiments. Methods A Noble Gas Membrane Inlet Mass Spectrometry (NG-MIMS) system was developed to measure noble gases at natural abundances in gas and water samples. The NG-MIMS system consists of a membrane inlet, a dry-ice water trap, a carbon-dioxide trap, two getters, a gate valve, a turbomolecular pump and a ...
In this study, the relation between dyspeptic complaints and six dimensions of functional health was assessed using a cross sectional survey of dyspeptic patients consulting their GP. Results showed that dyspepsia has a clear but limited influence on health status. Furthermore, psychological distress was shown to be a more powerful predictor of the health status of dyspeptic patients in general practice, especially in patients with higher levels of psychological distress. In general, infection withH pylori was not associated with severity of dyspeptic complaints or health status;H pylori prevalence was similar to that found in a group of asymptomatic Dutch labourers.26 The cross sectional design of the study limits interpretation of the results. Firstly, no conclusions can be drawn regarding the causal relation of any association found in this survey; and secondly, the findings can only be generalised towards dyspeptic patients consulting their GP. We were not able to include a control group of ...
The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) investigates criminal activity for HHS. The special agents who work for OIG have the same title series "1811", training and authority as other federal criminal investigators, such as the FBI, ATF, DEA and Secret Service. However, OIG Special Agents have special skills in investigating white collar crime related to Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse. Organized crime has dominated the criminal activity relative to this type of fraud. HHS-OIG investigates tens of millions of dollars in Medicare fraud each year. In addition, OIG will continue its coverage of all 50 states and the District of Columbia by its multi-agency task forces (PSOC Task Forces) that identify, investigate, and prosecute individuals who willfully avoid payment of their child support obligations under the Child Support Recovery Act. HHS-OIG agents also provide protective services to the Secretary of HHS, and other department executives as necessary. In 2002, the department released ...
Q. Whom does the Home Care Association of New Hampshire represent? A. Our membership is licensed providers of home health services in New Hampshire. Most people identify us by the Visiting Nurse Association agencies. That is a large portion of our membership. But we also represent proprietary home health services. Basically, the requirement to be a member of our association is that you must licensed by the state of New Hampshire to deliver home health services. Q. Theres a pretty broad range of services under the aegis of home health care, isnt there? A. Yes. I think the public is hearing a lot about home health care as an alternative to nursing home care or long-term, chronic care. It ranges from skilled nursing, therapies, acute care kinds of services in the home to long-term or chronic care and supportive services that includes home health aides, homemaker services and companionship services. In New Hampshire, most hospice services are also provided in the home by the VNA. The majority of ...
On August 20, 1996, a 32-year-old resident of New Hampshire died in a Massachusetts hospital from an illness characterized by rapid neurologic deterioration. Rabies had been clinically suspected on the date of her transfer from a New Hampshire hospital (August 14) and was confirmed by CDC on August 17. This report summarizes the investigation of this case by the state health departments of New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, which implicated a dog in Kathmandu, Nepal, as the probable source of exposure. The patient initially sought care at a hospital emergency department (ED) in New Hampshire on August 12 for a 2-day history of paresthesias and pain radiating up her left arm from the site of a healed bite. She reported being bitten by a dog on her left hand on June 7 while in Kathmandu, but did not receive rabies postexposure prophylaxis (PEP) for the bite. Physical examination was normal, and left cervical radiculopathy was diagnosed. Anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs ...
Non-elderly adults have not been so fortunate. Those between ages 18 and 64 experienced a 4.6 percentage-point increase in the share uninsured from 2000 to 2012. Unlike children, their ESI losses were not fully offset by increasing public coverage.. For young adults, health reform played a key role in preventing a decline in workplace coverage. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act includes provisions that allow young adults up to age 26 to secure health insurance coverage through their parents employer-sponsored health insurance policies. Looking closely at changes in employer-sponsored insurance since the young adult provision took effect in mid-2010, it is clear that young adults are benefiting.. Figure E illustrates the change in employer-sponsored health insurance and the change in employment rates by age group from 2009 and 2012. Young adults, ages 19-25, are the only age group to see increases in employer-sponsored health insurance since 2009. One explanation for this outcome ...

Background There is increasing emphasis on pharmacists assuming responsibility for public health promotion and delivery with formal expansion of public health activities in their practice. A number of pharmacy school accreditation bodies now incorporate public health competencies within expected professional training outcomes. The objective of this study was to characterize pharmacy student perceptions towards pharmacist public health services roles and responsibilities. Methods All undergraduate students at the College of Pharmacy at Qatar University were surveyed 1 week following a student-led breast cancer awareness event. A questionnaire was devised from a literature review and comprised of 10 questions assessing pharmacy student motivations, perceptions and anticipated comfort with various pharmacist-conducted public health activities. Results Ninety-four per cent of students responded, most having participated in the breast cancer awareness event. They generally felt pharmacist ...
Racial/ethnic differences in health are evident among men. Previous work suggests associations between mental and physical health but few studies have examined how mood/anxiety disorders and chronic physical health conditions covary by age, race, and ethnicity among men. Using data from 1,277 African American, 629 Caribbean Black, and 371 non-Hispanic White men from the National Survey of American Life, we examined associations between race/ethnicity and experiencing one or more chronic physical health conditions in logistic regression models stratified by age and 12-month mood/anxiety disorder status. Among men ,45 years without mood/anxiety disorders, Caribbean Blacks had lower odds of chronic physical health conditions than Whites. Among men aged 45+ years with mood/anxiety disorders, African Americans had greater odds of chronic physical health conditions than Whites. Future studies should explore the underlying causes of such variation and how studying mental and chronic physical health ...
Mental Health Status of Prisoners in Jail It is recognized that one of the major issues in jail management is responding to the needs of a growing number of inmates with mental health problems. The purpose of this study was to assess the nature and severity of mental health problems among inmate population. The mental health status of 1,500 (1,337 responded) inmates of the 30 prisons located in nationwide area was examined using Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI). And the scores on MMPI were examined in relation to some offender characteristics such as type of offence, treatment classification, frequence of discipline. The result indicates that the percentage of inmate population with scores over 70 on every sub-categories of the scale is higher than that of general populations reflecting high rate of deviation from average normal mental health. It seems likely that many of inmates are in need of specific mental health treatment services. The nature and severity of mental health

Individuals living in rural mountain areas tend to use health services less to manage discomfort or illness. This study aims to identify the variables that best explain the health service utilization of a sample of the rural population in the Dabie Mountains in China. To obtain information about health service utilization, a cross-sectional household survey was conducted using face-to-face interviews among the residents of a poor town in the Dabie Mountains. A total of 1,003 residents aged 15 or more, who had felt unwell in the last two weeks before the survey, were included in the analysis. The χ2 test and binary logistic regression were used to analyze the factors influencing health service utilization. A total of 51.2% of those surveyed had not used health services when they felt unwell, higher than the data reported in the 4th National Health Services Survey of China. Enabling variables played an important role in predicting the utilization of health services. Factors associated with increased
Deer tick virus is a virus causing tick-borne encephalitis. Deer tick virus is a flavivirus closely resembling Powassan virus (to which it has 94% amino acid sequence identity). Because they are so related, deer tick virus is thought to be a genotype of Powassan virus, and also called Powassan virus lineage II. In 1997, it was isolated from Ixodes scapularis (the deer tick, formerly Ixodes dammini) collected in Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Abstract The Surgeon General called dental caries the silent epidemic, suffered disproportionately by the poor. Homeless mothers/children are especially vulnerable as they lack access to dental care. This prospective study elucidated predictors of access, oral health, and the effectiveness of shelter-based care. A convenience sample of 120 homeless families (children n=236) provided predictor factors at intake and one month later. Nearly half the children (n=98) had dental caries. Ten independent variables explained 33% of the variance of access barriers; the most influential were mental health (B=-.426), oral health beliefs (B=.243), and victimization (B=.185). Ten independent variables explained 24.3% of the variance of oral health: mothers age (B5.351), number of children at the shelter (B=.337), and race (B=.154) had the most influence. Shelter-based care was effective in improving access: 43% of families secured dental appointments and perceived access barriers decreased after ...
OBJECTIVE Mental health-related problems pose a serious issue for primary care, and community pharmacy could make a significant contribution, but there is a dearth of information. METHODS This article reports synthesis of the literature on mental health interventions across a range of pharmacy models, and pharmacy services in contexts beyond mental health. To best inform the design of a community pharmacy medication support intervention for mental health consumers, the literature was reported as a conceptual schema and subsequent recommendations for development, implementation and evaluation of the service. A broad conceptualisation was taken in this review. In addition to mental health and community pharmacy literature, policy/initiatives, organisational culture and change management principles, and evaluative processes were reviewed. Key words were selected and literature reviews undertaken using EMBASE, PubMed, CINAHL and Web of Science. RESULTS Recommendations were made around: medication

Objectives: The benefits of religion/spirituality for people living with experiences of mental disorder or incarceration are well-researched in North America. Limited attention has been paid to equivalent populations in the UK and even less so to forensic mental health service users. This paper aims to explore the lived experience of high secure hospital service users who have identified religion/spirituality as holding personal importance. In particular, the paper aims to explore the role of religion/spirituality in the process of recovery from mental disorder and offending behaviour. Design: A semi-structured interview design was adopted. Methods: Men from a high secure hospital with a self-identified religious/spiritual identity were interviewed individually.

Younger people with heart failure often experience poor self-rated health. Furthermore, poor self-rated health is associated with long-term sick leave and disability pension. Socio-demographic factors affect the ability to return to work. However, little is known about people on sick leave due to heart failure. The aim of this study was to investigate associations between self-rated health, mood, socio-demographic factors, sick leave compensation, encounters with healthcare professionals and social insurance officers and self-estimated ability to return to work, for people on sick leave due to heart failure. This population-based investigation had a cross-sectional design. Data were collected in Sweden in 2012 from two official registries and from a postal questionnaire. In total, 590 subjects, aged 23-67, responded (response rate 45.8%). Descriptive statistics, correlation analyses (Spearman bivariate analysis) and logistic regression analyses were used to investigate associations. Poor ...

Despite the implementation of new tobacco control policies in May 2007, the survey results indicate that smoking prevalence among Albanian males did not decrease, and that smoking rates among females in general and males aged 18-29 years continue to grow. The results did provide some indications that adopting stricter tobacco control laws in 2007 was a positive step. Self-reported exposure to cigarette advertising and exposure to second-hand smoke in all public spaces have both declined. The data also indicate some reduction in smoking intensity, a small increase in quit attempts, and an increase in quit ratios among 18-24 years olds.. In evaluating tobacco control policies, a limitation of this study is the lack of data to sufficiently gauge what trends in smoking rates might have been in the absence of recent policies. Trends in former communist Russia9 indicate that Albanian smoking rates, especially among females, may have increased more in the absence of the policies. Spurred by tobacco ...

Washington, D.C. 20420. Dear Mr. Missal,. Please find enclosed the Illinois Guardianship and Advocacy Commissions recent investigations into ongoing rights violations committed against Illinois veterans with disabilities at the Edward Hines Jr. and Jesse Brown Veterans Affairs Hospitals.. The Commission is particularly concerned with the forced administration of psychotropic medication, sometimes with VA police presence, without adequate cause to a veterans mental health needs and the issuance of criminal citations for a veteran exhibiting mental health related behavioral symptoms. As the Commission explains it, the VA Hospitals use the Illinois Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code (405 ILCS 5/2-107) to involuntarily commit veterans, however, they fail to uphold the same Codes rights protections for these veterans.. The Guardianship and Advocacy Commission was created to protect the rights and promote the welfare of Illinois disabled citizens. I am confident you share my concerns ...
Bangor (Maine) Daily News, Sept. 3, 2013. AUGUSTA, Maine - Activists assembled at the State House on Tuesday to kick off an eight-state tour of the Northeast in support of health care reform.. The group, called Drive for Universal Healthcare, or "DUH," bills itself as a "rolling demonstration" of activists in their vehicles, visiting states with pending legislation that would expand health care coverage by instituting some version of single-payer health care.. In Maine, thats LD 1345, sponsored by Rep. Charlie Priest, D-Brunswick. His bill would transition the state slowly toward a state-run insurance system similar to those established in Canada and much of Europe.. Priest has introduced similar bills in previous legislatures. This time, he said he took his cues from Vermont, which in 2011 approved a law to slowly establish a single-payer system, and is working today toward implementing the law by 2017.. He said single-payer - which proponents say would drastically reduce the cost of health ...

The story below is about the interim final rules issued in February 2010.. Federal agencies have issued long-awaited regulations on providing parity for employees enrolled in group health plans who need treatment for mental health or substance use disorders. The interim final rules were issued by the Treasury Department, the U.S. Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and published in the Feb. 2, 2010, issue of the Federal Register. The rules apply to plan years starting after June 30, 2010. The new rules implement the Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA), enacted in October 2008 and effective as of Jan. 1, 2010, for calendar-year plans. MHPAEA prohibits group health insurance plans-typically offered by employers-from restricting access to care by limiting benefits and requiring higher patient costs than those that apply to general medical or surgical benefits. MHPAEA applies to employers with 50 ...

The study examined the association between the insurance status of individuals and the utilization of outpatient and inpatient health services. It also examined household members utilization of various types of health providers. Being insured was significantly associated with higher odds of utilizing both outpatient and inpatient health services. The finding is consistent with other studies on utilization in other parts of Ghana and Africa [19, 20]. A study in Accra, Ghanas capital city, showed that registered clients of the NHIS were significantly more likely to receive prescriptions, visit clinics, and use formal health facilities when in need [21]. Another study among households in the Mfantseman municipality (central region) in Ghana reported that insured members were more likely to utilize outpatient health services compared to the uninsured [22]. Studies in Rwanda have also shown an increase in the utilization of health services under the community-based health insurance [23-26]. Thus, ...
On paper, Powassan virus sounds like your basic nightmare. A tick-borne infection with no vaccine and no cure, it kills 1 in 10 people who get it and causes long-term neurological problems in half of reported cases. Fortunately, Powassan virus disease for decades had affected only about one person a year in the U.S.-most likely because it was typically transmitted from woodchucks to humans by a tick that rarely bites people. So back in 1997, when Sam Telford, a professor of infectious disease and global health at Cummings School, found a genetically distinct strain of Powassan virus in deer ticks-the bloodsuckers notorious for spreading Lyme disease-he initially worried about its implications. But despite the fact that he found the virus in 1 out of every 100 deer ticks he sampled, at the time there were no reports of swelling in the brain (called encephalitis) in sites where Lyme disease was common. He and his fellow researchers surmised that people just didnt come down with Powassan virus ...
