Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the most common treatment for people with with autism. An effective ABA treatment program will build on the childs interests, offer a predictable schedule, teach tasks as a series of simple steps, actively engage the childs attention in highly structured activities, and provide regular reinforcement of behavior.. Parental involvement is also believed to be a major factor in treatment success. Parents work with teachers and therapists to identify the behaviors that need to be changed and the skills that should be taught. Recognizing that parents are the childs earliest teachers, more programs are beginning to train parents to continue the therapy at home.. As soon as a childs disability has been identified, instruction should begin. Effective programs will teach early communication and social interaction skills.. In children younger than three years of age, appropriate interventions usually take place in the home or a child care center. These interventions ...

Tuberculosis (TB) is a major public health problem in Afghanistan, but experience in implementing effective strategies to prevent and control TB in urban areas and conflict zones is limited. This study shares programmatic experience in implementing DOTS in the large city of Kabul. We analyzed data from the 2009-2015 reports of the National TB Program (NTP) for Kabul City and calculated treatment outcomes and progress in case notification. Between 2009 and 2015, the number of DOTS-providing centers in Kabul increased from 22 to 85. In total, 24,619 TB patients were enrolled in TB treatment during this period. The case notification rate for all forms of TB increased from 59 per 100,000 population to 125 per 100,000. The case notification rate per 100,000 population for sputum-smear-positive TB increased from 25 to 33. The treatment success rate for all forms of TB increased from 31% to 67% and from 47% to 77% for sputum-smear-positive TB cases. In 2013, contact screening was introduced, and the TB ...
Access to healthcare is essential for cancer survivors who require regular follow-up care, especially rural cancer survivors, who are at increased risk for poorer health and higher mortality rates. The aim of this study was to examine rural-urban differences in adult cancer survivors forgoing healthcare due to cost. Overall, we found that rural cancer survivors were more likely than urban cancer survivors to forgo or delay medical care because of cost, particularly older survivors. Our results were similar to previous reports of rural residents delaying or forgoing medical care because of cost (10, 12, 14, 23). However, there are some studies that did not find any rural-urban differences (12, 24) or found the opposite pattern (25). The variability in results may be due to differences in study population and measurement of rural-urban residence (26, 27).. For younger survivors, controlling for sociodemographic and clinical characteristics resulted in the attenuation of the rural-urban effect of ...

House calls provide a unique perspective on patients environment and health problems. The demand for house calls is expected to increase considerably in future decades as the U.S. population ages. Although study results have been inconsistent, house calls involving multidisciplinary teams may reduce hospital readmissions and long-term care facility stays. Common indications for house calls are management of acute or chronic illnesses, and palliative care. Medicare beneficiaries must meet specific criteria to be eligible for home health services. The INHOMESSS mnemonic provides a checklist for components of a comprehensive house call. In addition to performing a clinical assessment, house calls may involve observing the patient performing daily activities, reconciling medication discrepancies, and evaluating home safety. House calls can be integrated into practice with careful planning, including clustering house calls by geographic location and coordinating visits with other health care professionals

A house call is a visit to the home of a patient or client by a doctor or other professional. In some locations, families used to pay dues to a particular practice to underwrite house calls. In the early 1960s, house calls by doctors were 40% of doctor-patient meetings. By 1980, it was only 0.6%. Reasons include increased specialization and technology. In the 1990s, team home care, including physician visits, was a small but growing field in health care, for frail older people with chronic illnesses. The reasons for fewer house calls include concerns about providing low-overhead care in the home, time inefficiency, inconvenience. Yet, there are more and more doctors who like the idea of no office overhead. Also, it can provide safe access to care by people who are ill. Today, house calls may be making a revival among the wealthy through concierge telemedicine. In 2012 as part of its Action Plan for Healthcare the province of Ontario actively expanded funding for access to house calls with its ...

Official title:. Sensitivity and predictive value of functional cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) detecting intra-abdominal adhesions. Background:. Adhesions are a frequent problem in abdominal surgery. The formation of adhesions is part of a normal wound healing. However in some patients adhesions cause severe complications such as chronic pain, obstruction and strangulation of the bowel. Adhesions can also obstruct access to the peritoneal cavity and complicate reoperations. Accurate imaging of adhesions would be of benefit avoiding adhesion related complications at repeated laparotomy or laparoscopy. At present no validated diagnostic tool mapping adhesions exists.. Purpose:. To define the sensitivity and specificity of functional cineMRI in detecting and mapping adhesions in patients undergoing reoperation.. Design:. Prospective multicenter observational trial. Primary outcome:. Sensitivity and specificity of functional MRI detecting adhesions to the abdominal wall. Secondary ...

Abstract. We characterized the relationship of the presence of an improved latrine with diarrhea and under-five child mortality in Indonesia. The proportion of rural and urban families, respectively, without an improved latrine was 52.1% and 16.2%, with a child with a history of diarrhea in the last 7 days was 8.2% and 9.7%, and with a history of under-five child mortality was 11.1% and 8.5%. Among rural and urban families, respectively, lack of an improved latrine was associated with a child history of diarrhea in the last 7 days (odds ratio [OR] = 1.23, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.18-1.29, P < 0.0001; OR = 1.20, 95% CI = 1.13-1.27, P < 0.0001) and under-five child mortality (OR = 1.29, 95% CI = 1.25-1.31, P < 0.0001; OR = 1.22, 95% CI = 1.12-1.32, P < 0.0001) in separate multivariable logistic regression models adjusting for covariates. The lack of a household improved latrine is associated with diarrhea and under-five child mortality in Indonesia.
If 70% of the global population will reside in metropolitan regions by 2050, this poses new governance challenges related to urban-rural interfaces and linkages. It calls for governance that stretches across scales and beyond urban boundaries, taking into account both problems and opportunities of urbanization. This chapter reviews the literature on urban-rural interfaces and linkages and discusses suggestions for dealing with them. It also addresses three governance problems that hinder a more integrated approach towards the urban-rural interface, specifically fragmentation, institutional inertia, and the inability to realize inclusive development. Based on potential governance approaches to address these three problems, we present six institutional design dimensions for a more inclusive governance approach for urban-rural regions. Bridging organizations, nested issue-based platforms, and combining governance with strong government are identified as pathways towards inclusive urban-rural ...

Do you feel like a walking zombie? Often fall asleep in appropriate times and places? Always wake up feeling unrefreshed? Are your sleeping patterns ruining your relationship with your partner? Perhaps you are suffering from a sleep disorder.. According to Dr Raymond Tan, Ear, Nose, Throat Specialist at Global Doctors Medical Centre and Secretary of the Sleep Disorders Association Malaysia, the most common sleep disorder affecting an estimated 7% of adult Malaysians or 1.9 mil people is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).. WHAT IS IT?. OSA is characterised by repeated cessation of breathing during sleep. People with OSA tend to wake up several times gasping for air, resulting in poor sleep quality that affects quality of life and productivity. Recent research reveals that OSA is also linked to increased risks of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes and other serious health issues.. "OSA is three times more common in men than women," says Dr Tan. It is also more prevalent among the ...

The overall goal of this project is to evaluate whether a multifaceted prompting intervention, administered in the urban primary care office setting, reduces morbidity among urban children with asthma. This study builds on our experience with a pilot study in two urban continuity clinics, in which we found that prompting clinicians about asthma severity and care guidelines at the time of an office visit resulted in improved preventive care delivery to inner-city children. This type of prompting program has the potential to substantially improve care for impoverished children with asthma, and we propose to establish: 1) whether these findings can be replicated in a similar study including a larger sample of urban children from different types of practices, and 2) whether the positive effects can be enhanced by more specific prompting directed towards both the provider and the caregiver and by providing practice-level supports and feedback. We hypothesize that children receiving a multifaceted ...

Aim: Health literacy means having basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between health literacy and knowledge in rural patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.Methods: This descriptive-analytic study was performed on 120 patients with type 2 diabetes patients in 2016 in two health homes of Hossein Abad and Kaghazi villages of Aran and Bidgol City in Isfahan Province. Sampling was done by census. Data were gathered by three questionnaires. They were valid and standard questionnaires including demographic, knowledge and HELIA. The data were analyzed by SPSS16 software using descriptive statistics, T-test, correlation coefficient and ANOVA.Findings: In this study, the participants were 66.7% women, 29/2% worker, 5/8% employee, 4/2% retired, 5% unemployed, and the rest were housewives. The mean score of health literacy and knowledge was 13/82±2/20 and 114±23/21, respectively. The mean age of the participants
Oh! Stop the insanity, DIET has become a four letter word. The dictionary defines diet as the kinds of food a person, animal or community habitually eats. However, today diet is associated with starvation, deprivation, anorexia, bulimia, eating disorders and negative body image. It has spiraled downwards into confusion and rampage, people who do not need to diet continue to diet and people who need to diet dig their feet deeper and proudly declare curves as the new standard of beauty, stomping on peoples fear of being politically incorrect.. You can have a high-horse opinion about quick fixes and restrictive diets but there are times when a person with morbid obesity/serious condition needs to bring their weight down drastically in a short time for many reasons. Some short cuts are necessary to kick start the process but a long-term approach after the short cut is of the utmost importance for both medical/healthcare professional and patient to focus on. Why am I in any way supporting short ...
Migration is an important process of change for rural populations in developing countries. Migration is a primary cause of behaviour change - by their very act of migrating, migrants are different from those who do not migrate. The focus of the current study is male rural-urban migration in Tanzania and its interaction with sexual behaviour. The analysis presents results from a comparison with individual-level analyses of two populations, one (composed of recent rural-urban migrants) in an urban area and one in a rural area. Detailed migration histories (n=96 rural-urban migrants) and in-depth interviews (n=96 rural-urban migrants, n=51 rural residents) form the basis of the study. Three key research questions are addressed: How does the sexual behaviour of migrants differ from that of rural residents? How do HIV knowledge levels vary between rural-urban migrants and rural residents? What factors are associated with either intentions of behaviour change or reported behaviour? The results are ...

Emergency departments may be a useful information source to describe the demographics and clinical characteristics of patients with acute cocaine-related medical problems. We therefore conducted a retrospective analysis of 165 acute, laboratory-confirmed cocaine intoxications admitted to an urban emergency department in Switzerland between January 2007 and March 2011. A total of 165 patients with a mean age of 32 years were included. Most patients were male (73%) and unemployed (65%). Only a minority (16%) had abused cocaine alone while 84% of the patients had used at least one additional substance, most commonly ethanol (41%), opioids (38%), or cannabis (36%) as confirmed by their detection in blood samples. The most frequently reported symptoms were chest pain (21%), palpitations (19%), anxiety (36%) and restlessness (36%). Psychiatric symptoms were present in 64%. Hypertension and tachycardia were observed in 53% and 44% of the patients, respectively. Severe poisonings only occurred in patients with
