Engaging Women Decision Maker for Healthy Outcomes

Engaging Women Decision Maker for Healthy Outcomes | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

eismic changes are rocking healthcare globally, moving the industry from a business-to-business to a business-to-consumer model. Low adherence to prescriptions demonstrates a wealth of missed opportunities in patient treatment. Public policy shifts in many markets encourage doctors and insurance providers to focus on patients’ outcomes as never before. Technological advances have handed patients a megaphone; meanwhile, big data has handed professionals unprecedented consumer insight. This drive to a consumer-centered model, however, confronts countervailing forces: a $6.5 trillion market* resists change; low consumer trust in the healthcare industry prevents loyalty; and the industry can’t build trust with consumers until it truly understands those who make decisions regarding healthcare.

Nell’intesa oggi all’esame della Conferenza Stato Regioni si prevede una serie di misure in nome dell’appropriatezza prescrittiva. Ma il fatto di sanzionare i medici e i malati per presunti comportamenti inappropriati ci dice in modo inequivocabile che la parola finale sulle regole di erogabilità delle prestazioni non spetta né al malato e né al medico

Imprecision medicine: Time for one-person trials - @NatureNews

Imprecision medicine: Time for one-person trials - @NatureNews | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Precision medicine requires a different type of clinical trial that focuses on individual, not average, responses to therapy, says Nicholas J. Schork .  Every day, millions of people are taking medications that will not help them. The top ten highest-grossing drugs in the United States help between 1 in 25 and 1 in 4 of the people who take them (see 'Imprecision medicine'). For some drugs, such as statins — routinely used to lower cholesterol — as few as 1 in 50 may benefit1. There are even drugs that are harmful to certain ethnic groups because of the bias towards white Western participants in classical clinical trials2.

5 milliards de personnes n'ont pas accès aux soins médicaux élémentaires

5 milliards de personnes n'ont pas accès aux soins médicaux élémentaires | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
Deux tiers de la population mondiale (5 milliards de personnes) n'a toujours pas accès à des soins sécurisés et abordables, estime un rapport de la fondation "The Lancet", relayé par la BBC. Il s'agit d'une proportion deux fois supérieure aux précédentes estimations. Un tel constat signifie que plusieurs millions d'individus meurent encore aujourd'hui alors qu'ils pourraient être aisément soignés, notamment pour des cas d'appendicite ou de dystocie. Selon cette étude, 93% de la population des pays d'Afrique subsaharienne n'a toujours pas accès aux soins médicaux les plus élémentaires.

Environmental advocates and tobacco control advocates share a common history, and can learn from each others struggles and successes. | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
The tobacco control and environmental rights movements have often shared a common purpose and maintain a shared history. The clean indoor air movement that started in the 1970s aimed to ban tobacco smoking in public places and shared philosophy and personnel with those who fought for clean air and drinking water during the same era. The tobacco industry and its products continue to cause major ecological damage. The extent of this damage caused largely by unsustainable farming practices and product litter is detailed throughout the Tobacco Atlas. Moreover, finding solutions to these problems will require enlisting the aid of and working with those who advocate on behalf of our environment.

Demographic and Epidemiologic Drivers of Global Cardiovascular Mortality — NEJM

Demographic and Epidemiologic Drivers of Global Cardiovascular Mortality — NEJM | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
Globally, deaths from cardiovascular and circulatory diseases are increasing.1 This increase represents the combined effect of population growth, the aging of populations, and epidemiologic changes in cardiovascular disease. It is important to disentangle these drivers of the observed trends in global mortality for a number of reasons. First, regional and national investments in cardiovascular health can target only the epidemiologic causes of cardiovascular disease. Second, understanding the roles and relative magnitude of these demographic and epidemiologic trends is important in planning for the health care system and in developing policy. Third, the effects of the aging and growth of the population should be excluded when progress toward the goal set by the United Nations for a 25% reduction in premature mortality due to cardiovascular disease by the year 2025 is benchmarked.2,3

From work with men and boys to changes of social norms and reduction of inequities in gender relations: a conceptual shift in prevention of violence against women and girls - The Lancet

From work with men and boys to changes of social norms and reduction of inequities in gender relations: a conceptual shift in prevention of violence against women and girls - The Lancet | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Violence perpetrated by and against men and boys is a major public health problem. Although individual men's use of violence differs, engagement of all men and boys in action to prevent violence against women and girls is essential. We discuss why this engagement approach is theoretically important and how prevention interventions have developed from treating men simply as perpetrators of violence against women and girls or as allies of women in its prevention, to approaches that seek to transform the relations, social norms, and systems that sustain gender inequality and violence. We review evidence of intervention effectiveness in the reduction of violence or its risk factors, features commonly seen in more effective interventions, and how strong evidence-based interventions can be developed with more robust use of theory. Future interventions should emphasise work with both men and boys and women and girls to change social norms on gender relations, and need to appropriately accommodate the differences between men and women in the design of programmes.

Twitter Journal Clubs for Health Care Providers: A Systematic Review

Twitter Journal Clubs for Health Care Providers: A Systematic Review | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

BackgroundJournal clubs are an essential tool in promoting clinical evidence-based medical education to all medical and allied health professionals. Twitter represents a public, microblogging forum that can facilitate traditional journal club requirements, while also reaching a global audience, and participation for discussion with study authors and colleagues.


ObjectiveThe aim of the current study was to evaluate the current state of social media–facilitated journal clubs, specifically Twitter, as an example of continuing professional development.


MethodsA systematic review of literature databases (Medline, Embase, CINAHL, Web of Science, ERIC via ProQuest) was performed according to Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines. A systematic search of Twitter, the followers of identified journal clubs, and Symplur was also performed. Demographic and monthly tweet data were extracted from Twitter and Symplur. All manuscripts related to Twitter-based journal clubs were included. Statistical analyses were performed in MS Excel and STATA.


ResultsFrom a total of 469 citations, 11 manuscripts were included and referred to five Twitter-based journal clubs (#ALiEMJC, #BlueJC, #ebnjc, #urojc, #meded). A Twitter-based journal club search yielded 34 potential hashtags/accounts, of which 24 were included in the final analysis. The median duration of activity was 11.75 (interquartile range [IQR] 19.9, SD 10.9) months, with 7 now inactive. The median number of followers and participants was 374 (IQR 574) and 157 (IQR 272), respectively. An overall increasing establishment of active Twitter-based journal clubs was observed, resulting in an exponential increase in total cumulative tweets (R2=.98), and tweets per month (R2=.72). Cumulative tweets for specific journal clubs increased linearly, with @ADC_JC, @EBNursingBMJ, @igsjc, @iurojc, and @NephJC, and showing greatest rate of change, as well as total impressions per month since establishment. An average of two tweets per month was estimated for the majority of participants, while the “Top 10” tweeters for @iurojc showed a significantly lower contribution to overall tweets for each month (P<.005). A linearly increasing impression:tweet ratio was observed for the top five journal clubs.


ConclusionsTwitter-based journal clubs are free, time-efficient, and publicly accessible means to facilitate international discussions regarding clinically important evidence-based research.

Teaching our children when to eat: how parental feeding practices inform the development of emotional eating—a longitudinal experimental design

ABSTRACT Background: Emotional eating in children has been related to the consumption of energy-dense foods and obesity, but the development of emotional eating in young children is poorly understood. Objectives: We evaluated whether emotional eating can be induced in 5–7-y-old children in the laboratory and assessed whether parental use of overly controlling feeding practices at 3–5 y of age predicts a greater subsequent tendency for children to eat under conditions of mild stress at ages 5–7 y. Design: Forty-one parent-child dyads were recruited to participate in this longitudinal study, which involved parents and children being observed consuming a standard lunch, completing questionnaire measures of parental feeding practices, participating in a research procedure to induce child emotion (or a control procedure), and observing children’s consumption of snack foods. Results: Children at ages 5–7 y who were exposed to a mild emotional stressor consumed significantly more calories from snack foods in the absence of hunger than did children in a control group. Parents who reported the use of more food as a reward and restriction of food for health reasons with their children at ages 3–5 y were more likely to have children who ate more under conditions of negative emotion at ages 5–7 y. Conclusions: Parents who overly control children’s food intake may unintentionally teach children to rely on palatable foods to cope with negative emotions. Additional research is needed to evaluate the implications of these findings for children’s food intake and weight outside of the laboratory setting. T

‘Nudges’ may be effective at times, but policymakers can't rely on them to tackle entrenched social problems.

‘Nudges’ may be effective at times, but policymakers can't rely on them to tackle entrenched social problems. | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Since the publication of 2008’s Nudge by Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein, policy ‘nudges’ have been in fashion, with smaller interventions aimed at altering public behaviour in a subtle manner being adopted by many governments, including in the UK. Frank Mols looked at this phenomenon in a recent journal article, and argues here that while nudges undoubtedly can be effective, their limitations must be kept in mind. Governments across the globe –including the UK coalition government—appear to have fallen in love with behavioural economics, and the idea of nudging citizens towards better choices. Behavioural economics is a well-established strand of research in which psychological insights are used to question human’s ability to make ‘sound’ rational decisions. This perspective, refined over the course of several decades, starts from the premise that we humans are poor decision-makers, so-called ‘cognitive misers’, who are prone to make erroneous decisions, decisions that will ultimately harm, rather than benefit our personal and collective self-interest.

Now, a new brain scan study explains that reading to a child early and often activates the part of the brain that allows them to understand the meaning of language.

The zero marginal cost society—or how capitalism will eat itself - Jeremy Rifkin

The zero marginal cost society—or how capitalism will eat itself - Jeremy Rifkin | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

There’s more than a fleeting echo, in the cadences of the opening paragraph of Jeremy Rifkin’s new book, “The Zero Marginal Cost Society“, of Marx and Engels’s “Communist Manifesto”. But in this case the spectre haunting not just Europe but the whole of the developed world isn’t communism, it’s a “new economic paradigm” that Rifkin calls the “Collaborative Commons”. The cynosure of this new paradigm won’t be the exchange of private property in markets; it will be the “access of services in the Collaborative Commons.” Rifkin writes: “The capitalist era is passing… not quickly, but inevitably. A new economic paradigm… is rising in its wake that will transform our way of life.”

Patenting of life-saving drugs has created a global health crisis where human life has become a commercial commodity. | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
Millions of people—mostly in developing countries—lack access to life-saving drugs. Righting this imbalance is among the most important challenges of global public health of this century, argues Akansha Mehta. There is scant evidence to prove that frameworks for intellectual property rights and patent protection have benefited research, development and innovation in developing countries. When the laws of trade and commerce override the human right to life-saving medicines, how can society protect public health from unbridled private markets?

Cochrane for Clinicians: Exercise is an Effective Intervention in Overweight and Obese Patients - American Family Physician

Cochrane for Clinicians: Exercise is an Effective Intervention in Overweight and Obese Patients - American Family Physician | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
Exercise leads to a weight loss of 1 lb, 2 oz to 16 lb, 12 oz (0.5 to 7.6 kg), compared with a 3-oz (0.1-kg) weight loss to a weight gain of 1 lb, 9 oz (0.7 kg) with no treatment. Patients participating in higher-intensity exercise lose 3 lb, 5 oz (1.5 kg) more than those participating in low-intensity exercise. Regardless of whether the patient loses weight, exercise improves diastolic blood pressure and triglyceride, high-density lipoprotein, and glucose levels. When a low-calorie diet is compared with exercise alone, a low-calorie diet leads to more weight loss (6 lb, 3 oz to 29 lb, 16 oz [2.8 to 13.6 kg] versus 1 lb, 2 oz to 16 lb, 12 oz). However, trials with three to 12 months of follow-up show that participants who combine a low-calorie diet with exercise lose 2 lb, 7 oz (1.1 kg) more than those who only diet.

The imperative of public health: opportunity or trap? Ilona Kickbusch

When the Ottawa Charter in 1986 had called on health promoters ‘to advocate for a clear political commitment to health and equity in all sectors’, foreign policy was not on the agenda. This changed as health promotion began to concern itself with the impact of globalization on health. Indeed, the recommendations from the 2nd international health promotion conference with a focus on ‘healthy public policy’ in Adelaide 1988 already stated: ‘in view of the large health gaps between countries, which this conference has examined, the developed countries have an obligation to ensure that their own policies have a positive health impact on developing nations. The conference recommends that all countries develop healthy public policies that explicitly address this issue’. That is a political agenda.

Twenty years later, a group of seven foreign ministers from around the world—Brazil, France, Indonesia, Norway, Senegal, South Africa and Thailand—declared global health a goal of foreign policy: ‘We believe that health is one of the most important, yet still broadly neglected, long-term foreign policy issues of our time. ...We believe that health as a foreign policy issue needs a stronger strategic focus on the international agenda. We have therefore agreed to make impact on health a point of departure and a defining lens that each of our countries will use to examine key elements of foreign policy and development strategies, and to engage in a dialogue on how to deal with policy options from this perspective’ (Oslo Ministerial Declaration, 2007).

On the most part the responses of global health advocates to this initiative have been positive—after all the explicit goal of the new public health is to have health high on the agenda of policy makers, to integrate health into as many policy arenas as possible and to move it from ‘low’ to ‘high’ …

Avoid Social Media Sins in Healthcare

Avoid Social Media Sins in Healthcare | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

The minute Laura met Casey, she was smitten. The tow-haired little boy captured her heart as soon as she walked into his hospital room. He seemed so small sitting in his hospital bed, reading to his stuffed rabbit. Laura was a semester away from graduating from nursing school and had been scared to start her pediatrics rotation because she had never been around children. Casey’s infectious smile tugged at her heartstrings, and she soon loved most aspects of pediatric nursing. She had found her niche.

Even when she wasn’t assigned to Casey, she tried to stop in to visit with him and his family. He adored Laura, too, and his parents enjoyed the attention she gave him. She popped her head in to say hi one morning and she noticed how exhausted Casey’s mom looked. Laura offered to stay with Casey for a few minutes while his mom ran to the cafeteria. Casey’s mom was thrilled, of course, and happily agreed. Casey was doing better; he would be going home soon, and her clinicals were coming to an end. She would miss him. To capture the moment, Laura asked a fellow student nurse to take their picture. The friend obliged, and Laura posted the sweet pic on Facebook that night – complete with caption, “I’m gonna miss this little guy –graduation is just 23 days away!”
