*  Epidemiologic Catchment Area Study, 1980-1985: [United States]
The Epidemiologic Catchment Area (ECA) program of research was initiated in response to the 1977 report of the President's Commission on Mental Health. The purpose was to collect data on the prevalence and incidence of mental disorders and on the use of and need for services by the mentally ill. Independent research teams at five universities (Yale University, Johns Hopkins University, Washington University, Duke University, and University of California at Los Angeles), in collaboration with the National Institute for Mental Health, conducted the studies with a core of common questions and sample characteristics. The sites were areas that had previously been designated as Community Mental Health Center catchment areas: New Haven, Connecticut, Baltimore, Maryland, St. Louis, Missouri, Durham, North Carolina, and Los Angeles, California. Each site sampled over 3,000 community residents and 500 residents of institutions, yielding 20,861 ...

*  Disability and psychiatric disorders in an urban community: measurement, prevalence and outcomes. - Semantic Scholar
BACKGROUND The purpose of this analysis was to examine: (1) the prevalence of psychiatric disorders among disabled people, using seven different measures of disability; (2) variation in disability between and within psychiatric diagnostic categories; and (3) relationship of diagnosis and disability to health service utilization. METHOD Data were drawn from Phase I and Phase II of the Eastern Baltimore Mental Health Survey, part of the Epidemiologic Catchment Area Program (ECA) conducted in 1980-1 to survey mental morbidity within the adult population. A total of 810 individuals received both a household interview and a standardized clinical psychiatric evaluation. Estimated prevalence rates were computed using appropriate survey sampling weights. RESULTS Prevalence of disability ranged from 2.5 to 19.5%, varying with specific disability measure. Among those classified as disabled by any of the measures examined, 56 to 92% had a psychiatric disorder and serious chronic medical conditions ...

Or does the DSM encourage an overstatement of mental illnesses? BPDFamily.com reported in November 2010 that the US Surgeon General estimates that 28% of the US population suffer from either a mental or addictive disorder in a given year. This is based on the DSM-IV. The current prevalence estimate is that about 20 percent of the U.S. population are affected by mental disorders during a given year. This estimate comes from two epidemiologic surveys: the Epidemiologic Catchment Area (ECA) study of the early 1980s and the National Comorbidity Survey (NCS) of the early 1990s. Those surveys defined mental illness according to the prevailing editions of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. The surveys estimate that during a 1-year period, 22 to 23 percent of the U.S. adult population ...

*  Anaphylaxis in Children: Clinical and Allergologic Features | ELECTRONIC ARTICLE | Pediatrics
Anaphylaxis is widely understood to be an immediate life-threatening condition that can occur at all ages and frequently in subjects with a history of atopy. Data about the prevalence of the various causes of anaphylaxis is scarce, especially in children. In adults some reasonable estimates report that hymenoptera sting anaphylaxis occurs in 0.4% of the population6 and penicillin-induced anaphylaxis occurs every 10-50 cases/100 000 injections.7 In a review of patients admitted to a university hospital during 1 year there were 9 cases of anaphylaxis out of 20 000 admissions.8 In a retrospective study carried out among adult subjects, Sorensen et al9 have reported an incidence of 3.4 cases/100 000 inhabitants of anaphylactic shock per year that occurred in a hospital catchment area over a 13-year period. The precipitating agents were penicillin in 7 cases, aspirin in 3 cases, food in 2 cases, and bee or wasp stings in 8 cases. In one study of ...

*  Acute effects on heart rate variability when exposed to hand transmitted vibration and noise.
The purpose of this thesis was to assess the possible risk of myocardial infarction in work entailing exposure to vibration, and to study whether there is any relation between short-term exposure to vibration and cardiac regulation.. Epidemiological methods were applied to investigate a possible association between occupational exposure to vibration and myocardial infarction. Two study populations were used; one case-control study (n=475) and one cohort of iron-ore miners in Kiruna and Malmberget, Sweden (n=13621). In the former, the cases were first-time myocardial infarction patients and the controls were selected to match for sex, age and hospital catchment area. Job-exposure matrixes for vibration were established for both the case-control study and the cohort study.. In order to study acute effects on cardiac regulation, an experimental study was conducted on healthy subjects (n=20) who were exposed to hand-arm vibration exclusively and in combination with exposure to noise. The effect ...

This is the little boy who was refused a place at his local primary school, because he lives just 20cm too far away. Yes, 20 CENTIMETRES!. Jonathan and Victoria Housden were planning to send their son Brock, three, to Bandon Hill Primary, the nearest school to his home in Wallington, south London.. But sticklers at Sutton Council calculated the distance from home to school - to the last centimetre! - and ruled that he was just outside the limit, as his family home lies 433.25m from the school, and the school's catchment area this year ended at 433.05m.. Brock is now without a school place after missing out on all four of his other choices, again because he was outside of the catchment areas.. His father Jonathan, 43, said: "One of the reasons we moved to this area six years ago was the quality of the primary school. We were well within the catchment area then, but now we have missed out by a hand span.". The ...

*  Lake Country catchment review making its way back to school board for final decision - Kelowna Capital News
After months of meetings and feedback, a final decision on new catchment areas for the three Lake Country elementary schools will go to the Central Okanagan School Board in the next two months.. The Central Okanagan School District held a final public consultation Thursday night in Lake Country where two different options for the new catchment areas were presented to the public.. Both options are very similar and would re-direct students living in the SouthWest quadrant of Lake Country (south of Seaton Road and west of the highway) that are currently in the Davidson Road catchment to Peter Greer Elementary. Students in the Woodsdale Flats area would be sent to Oyama Traditional School as opposed to their current catchment of Peter Greer.. The only difference in the two options is a development known as Sage Glen, where just 14 students currently reside. Those students, and any new students in that specific ...

*  Relationship between timeliness of contact and length of stay in older and younger patients of a consultation-liaison...
There was a significant but comparatively weaker correlation between length of stay and timing of referral in older patients compared with the younger group, which was a disappointing finding as this is a large and important target group for CLP services. This result is in contrast to the study of the rapid assessment, interface and discharge integrated model (RAID), which found that most of the service's cost savings were achieved through reduced lengths of stay and fewer readmissions in the geriatric wards.2 The authors suggested these outcomes were related to educating general hospital staff about mental health problems and efforts to link patients to appropriate pathways for community care.2 The difference in strength of correlation of the association found in the study presented here may be because of the inherent differences between the two age groups, including the need for an interpreter. The study hospital serves an ethnically diverse population with 48.1% of the hospital's ...

*  Working paper 00/027 - Abstract | Centre for Market and Public Organisation | University of Bristol
Carol Propper, Simon Burgess and Katherine Green. Payer driven competition has been widely advocated as a means of increasing efficiency in health care markets. The 1990s reforms to the UK health service followed this path. We examine whether competition led to better outcomes for patients, as measured by death rates after treatment following heart attacks. Using data that until 1999 was not publicly available in any form on hospital level death rates, we find that the relationship between competition and quality of care appears to be negative. Greater competition is associated with higher death rates, controlling for patient mix and other observed characteristics of the hospital and the catchment area for its patients. However, the estimated impact of competition is small.. Published in Journal of Public Economics 88 (708) 1247-1272 (July 2004). View a summary of the article (PDF, file 8.10 KB) (PDF, 8kB).

*  Ups About Downs: March 2015
A while back we were told that my daughter had to stop getting her dental care at Farnham Special Dental Care Unit and move to Aldershot Health Centre. This appeared to be an administrative decision more about catchment areas than whether or not people were getting the appropriate care. Needless to say, the change caused endless problems, the first being my daughter's aversion to anything new and different. The new dentist is perfectly capable and a lovely woman, but in my daughter's eyes, she is a stranger and no way deserves any cooperation whatsoever. We have had two years of clenched teeth, tears, struggles and as a result, below par care which has nothing to do with the poor dentist's efforts. Despite appealing to the NHS office who ordered this change, we are stuck with their decision - I am wondering how long it will take before my daughter accepts the new setting & staff. It took years for her to relax and be comfortable at the ...
