Poor Housing Increases Burn Risks for Kids

Poor Housing Increases Burn Risks for Kids | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
Substandard housing has been linked to a variety of health problems including higher blood levels in children and an increased asthma risk. Now a new study by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy finds kids living in poor housing may also be at an increased risk for fire and scald burns. The research was published in the journalPediatrics.

Canadian doctors support new stance on dying with dignity as legislative changes loom

Delegates at the Canadian Medical Association’s (CMA) general council meeting have overwhelmingly backed moves to modify the association’s existing policy on physician assisted death.

At the meeting in Ottawa on 19 August, 91% of delegates voted to adopt an advisory resolution presented by the CMA’s board of directors that said it “supports the right of all physicians, within the bounds of existing legislation, to follow their conscience when deciding whether to provide medical aid in dying.”

How much are you willing to pay to live an extra year? « Healthcare Economist | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Health Economists often use the cost per quality-adjusted life year (QALY) metric to answer this question.  QALYs are used to measure not only the additional years of life from a treatment, but also the quality of life.  For instance, you may prefer to live 1 year in perfect health to two years in a coma.  A QALY of 0.5 can indicate that the patient lived for 6 months in perfect health or for 1 year at a 50% health level.

The price of innovation: new estimates of drug development costs

Abstract

The research and development costs of 68 randomly selected new drugs were obtained from a survey of 10 pharmaceutical firms. These data were used to estimate the average pre-tax cost of new drug development. The costs of compounds abandoned during testing were linked to the costs of compounds that obtained marketing approval. The estimated average out-of-pocket cost per new drug is US$ 403 million (2000 dollars). Capitalizing out-of-pocket costs to the point of marketing approval at a real discount rate of 11% yields a total pre-approval cost estimate of US$ 802 million (2000 dollars). When compared to the results of an earlier study with a similar methodology, total capitalized costs were shown to have increased at an annual rate of 7.4% above general price inflation.

Différence entre Ontologie, Thesaurus et Taxonomie sur le web de données | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Trois espèces d’animaux différentes se rencontrent principalement dans les steppes des langages de représentation des connaissances du web de données. Les ontologies, les thesaurus et les taxonomies, si elles partagent l’organisation hiérarchiques de concepts entre eux, n’ont pas les mêmes usages, ni les mêmes objectifs. L’ontologie est faite pour décrire le monde tel qu’il est; le thesaurus est fait pour faciliter l’accès à des contenus; la taxonomie est fait pour classer des ressources dans des dossiers, des catégories. Les systèmes d’accès aux contenus, aux données ou aux connaissances, combinent et articulent ces 3 systèmes d’organisation pour décrire le monde, indexer, et catégoriser les contenus.

HIV testing is needed in mental health settings

Rayment and colleagues recommend that HIV screening be considered for everyone registering in general practice and “all general medical admissions” in areas where prevalence is >2 per 1000.1 However, they do not comment on mental health settings. This omission is regrettable, particularly in view of current campaigns to tackle health inequalities in this group and move towards “parity of esteem.”2

Deafening silence? Time to reconsider whether organisations are silent or deaf when things go wrong

Several public inquiries into healthcare failings in the UK have noted that employees of failing organizations attempt to raise concerns about shortcomings in care, often over a prolonged period of time, only for those concerns to be ignored. However, healthcare literature has largely focused on how organizations and their employees are silent in the face of such failings, positioning employees as daring not to speak in response to serious workplace problems or issues. We argue that only focussing on organizational silence is a critical mistake which misrepresents actual events and overly-simplifies the complexities of workplace culture. The disregard shown by academics, practitioners and policy makers to employee voice strategies, which do not amount to whistle-blowing, but equally cannot either be defined as “silence”, results in signals being ignored that can be effective in preventing and ending wrongdoing by others. In addition to understanding silence we suggest therefore that better understanding of why organizations are deaf to, or disregard, employee concerns are needed. We propose that a virtuous cycle is possible, whereby the introduction of systems that result in better listening and valuing of employee concerns reinforces a culture of speaking up and, in turn, organizational learning. Similarly, organizations that disregard employees concerns are destined not to learn, ultimately falling silent and failing.

Three in four cancer patients with depression are not getting adequate treatment, studies find

Major depression in patients with cancer is often “missed” or “overlooked” such that nearly three quarters are not receiving adequate treatment, research has found. Many of these patients would benefit from a new integrated treatment programme found to be “strikingly” more effective than current care at reducing depression and improving the quality of life, the researchers said.

The research findings were contained in three papers, funded by Cancer Research UK and the Scottish government and published simultaneously across three Lancet journals on 28 August (the Lancet, Lancet Psychiatry, and Lancet Oncology).

One study analysed data from more than 21 000 patients attending cancer clinics in Scotland who had been screened for depression. The researchers said that it was the first report on the prevalence of depression in patients with cancer that was based on a large scale screening service involving rigorous interviews and expert cancer diagnoses.1 It found that major depression was most commonly diagnosed in patients with …

Dal "Niente di troppo" che caratterizzava la mentalità classica e si esprimeva nel rifiuto dell'infinito visto come qualcosa di negativo perché informe, amorfo, al prevalere dell'infinito con la modernità, la tecnologia e l'affermarsi delle libertà individuali.

 

L'intervista a Remo Bodei, pubblicata su Repubblica il 5 settembre del 2013, è incentrata sulla attuale difficoltà di affrontare e gestire ciò che è "oltre misura". La sfida è quella di trovare un accettabile compromesso tra libertà e democrazia da una parte e criteri di senso dall'altra, per orientarsi è non soccombere all'imperativo tecnologico per cui tutto ciò che è possibile è lecito.

 

Bodei sottolinea come, a tale riguardo, sia fondamentale l'apporto dei saperi umanistici per "dare senso alla vita individuale e sociale"

Lower Opioid Overdose Death Rates Associated with State Medical Marijuana Laws

Bottom Line: States that implemented medical marijuana laws appear to have lower annual opioid analgesic overdoses death rates (both from prescription pain killers and illicit drugs such as heroin) than states without such laws although the reason why is not clear.


Author: Marcus A. Bachhuber, M.D., of the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and colleagues.


Background: Prescriptions for opioid painkillers for chronic pain have increased in the United States and so have overdose deaths. However, less attention has been focused on how the availability of alternative nonopioid treatment, such as medical marijuana, may affect overdose rates.


How the Study Was Conducted: The authors examined the implementation of state medical marijuana laws and opioid analgesic overdose deaths in the United States between 1999 and 2010. Three states had medical marijuana laws prior to 1999, 10 states implemented laws between 1999 and 2010 and nine states had laws that went into effect after 2010, which was beyond the study period. The authors also considered New Jersey’s law effective after the study period because it took effect in the last quarter of 2010. The authors analyzed state laws and death-certificate data.


Results: States with medical marijuana laws had a 24.8 percent lower average annual opioid overdose death rate compared to states without such laws. In 2010, that translated to about 1,729 fewer deaths than expected. The years after implementation of medical marijuana laws also were associated with lower overdose death rates that generally got stronger over time: year 1 (-19.9 percent), year 2 (-25.2 percent), year 3 (-23.6 percent), year 4 (-20.2 percent), year 5 (-33.7 percent) and year 6 (-33.3 percent).


Discussion: “In summary, although we found a lower mean annual rate of opioid analgesic mortality in states with medical cannabis laws, a direct causal link cannot be established. … If the relationship between medical cannabis laws and opioid analgesic overdose mortality is substantiated in further work, enactment of laws to allow for use of medical cannabis may be advocated as part of a comprehensive package of policies to reduce the population risk of opioid analgesics.”

People always seem to be complaining about this... our children are distracted... who wants to read when they can play games, but in effect children tend to copy their parents. By instilling a passion for reading from a young age we can try to balance out the claim that the young children do not like books or reading. One story a day... just like the apple, helps develop the creativity in children. It doesn't hurt by having the children making up their own stories and writing them together with their parents!
