Cigarette, alcohol, and illicit drug use down among US teens but e-cigarette use common, survey finds

Use of alcohol, cigarettes, and illicit drugs has fallen among US teenagers in the 8th, 10th, and 12th grades (aged 13 to 18) since 2013, a new survey has found. However, electronic cigarette use was common in 2014, with more than twice as many 12th graders (aged 17-18) reporting e-cigarette use than reporting use of cigarettes.

The survey was funded by the US National Institute on Drug Abuse and conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, Michigan.1

What would an evidence based drug policy be like?

Policy must move beyond evidence based to evidence infused to produce public good

In their foreword to the UK Home Office’s comparison of drug policies in various countries, government ministers stated that “the UK will continue to advocate a balanced, evidence-based approach to the misuse of drugs internationally.”1 In a subsequent Commons debate there was cross party support for the motion that “this House . . . believes that an evidence-based approach is required in order for . . . the Government to pursue the most effective drugs policy.”2 This flurry of attention raises the question: what would an evidence-based drug policy look like?

Theory and practice: Finding common ground between health economics and implementation science

Theory and practice: Finding common ground between health economics and implementation science | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
Can health economics and the practical realities of delivering healthcare work side by side? Michel Wensing, professor of implementation science at Radboud University Medical Centre, Nijmegen, Netherlands, and co-editor-in-chief of Implementation Science considers a new editorial on this question.
Many health professionals and health researchers have little interest in the costs of healthcare, perhaps with the exception of their personal reimbursement. Published economic studies have little relevance for them.
And, in fact, they may be correct. Economic analyses in healthcare are often designed to support decision-making on the reimbursement of treatments, devices and programs in national healthcare systems. Therefore a societal perspective and long-term time horizon are taken, non-healthcare costs are included, and non-clinical utilities are preferred ...Read more

MANOVRA 2015/ Nessun regalo alla Sanità: confermati tagli da 4 mld

MANOVRA 2015/ Nessun regalo alla Sanità: confermati tagli da 4 mld | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
Niente sconti come troppo ottimisticamente qualcuno tra i governatori sperava di ottenere in extremis nel maxi-emendamento. I nuovi tagli per il 2015 saranno, come ampiamente annunciato, di 4 mld per le Regioni, di cui 3,452 mld a carico delle Regioni a statuto ordinario e il resto per le altre. A questi vanno aggiunti 2,3 miliardi ereditati dal passato. La sanità subirà una quota parte del taglio che potrebbe venire anche dal Governo con Dpcm atteso per fine gennaio. A meno che le Regioni nel frattempo non...

Yoga reduces cardiovascular risk as much as walking or cycling, study shows - Bmj

Yoga can significantly reduce cardiovascular risk factors including body mass index, blood pressure, and low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, says a systematic review that found it had similar benefits to aerobic activities such as cycling or brisk walking.

Researchers analysed 37 randomised controlled trials, including 2768 people, that compared cardiovascular risk factors in adults who practised yoga to control groups who were not offered yoga therapy. People in the studies practised yoga for 30 to 90 minutes at each …

Why public opinion should not enter the debate about assisted dying

There are so many points about Delamothe and colleagues’ editorial on why the Assisted Dying Bill should become law in England and Wales that it is hard to know where to begin.1 Here is just one point that I think needs highlighting.

Delamothe and colleagues refer to public opinion, which is so often manipulated by tragedies but not so often well informed. Public opinion would still be in favour of the death penalty for certain crimes, such as the murder of children. So should we go with it? We do not do so for many reasons, one of which is a worry about judicial mistakes. The equivalent here would be people who at one time wish to die but then change their minds, which would not be possible once medically assisted suicide is legal.

Training public health superheroes: five talents for public health leadership

Training public health superheroes: five talents for public health leadership | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Conclusions Talent-based approaches have been effective for leadership development in other sectors. These talents are the first specific to the practice of public health and align with some aspects of existing frameworks. An increased focus on identifying and developing talents during public health training, as opposed to ‘competency’-based approaches, may be effective in strengthening public health leadership. Further research to understand the combination and intensity of talents across a larger sample of public health leaders is required.

Commentary on trending now: future directions in digital media for the public health sector | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Burke-Garcia and Scally1 write about the exciting opportunities for the public health sector that may be achieved using digital media. Zeal for the use of digital media in public health is legitimate, and experience and literature on the topic is constantly expanding. It is necessary for the public health sector to engage with these technologies, which allow organizations to maximize impact and reach while spending less money and using fewer resources. Organizations that promote the use of products that may have detrimental effects on health are already vigorously pursuing digital avenues,2,3 therefore reaching the wide and potentially vulnerable audience as described in ref. 1. However, to balance the enthusiasm for digitalizing public health practice, I will present some caveats for consideration.

The debate about extending the use of statins to those with an (unreliably) estimated 1% annual risk of cardiovascular disease is degenerating into an unseemly row about side effects,1 2 3 largely promoted by the tabloid press on one side and drug companies on the other.

Non-cardiovascular effects associated with statins. - Bmj

Statins form the pharmacologic cornerstone of the primary and secondary prevention of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. In addition to beneficial cardiovascular effects, statins seem to have multiple non-cardiovascular effects. Although early concerns about statin induced hepatotoxicity and cancer have subsided owing to reassuring evidence, two of the most common concerns that clinicians have are myopathy and diabetes. Randomized controlled trials suggest that statins are associated with a modest increase in the risk of myositis but not the risk of myalgia. Severe myopathy (rhabdomyolysis) is rare and often linked to a statin regimen that is no longer recommended (simvastatin 80 mg). Randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses suggest an increase in the risk of diabetes with statins, particularly with higher intensity regimens in people with two or more components of the metabolic syndrome. Other non-cardiovascular effects covered in this review are contrast induced nephropathy, cognition, cataracts, erectile dysfunction, and venous thromboembolism. Currently, systematic reviews and clinical practice guidelines indicate that the cardiovascular benefits of statins generally outweigh non-cardiovascular harms in patients above a certain threshold of cardiovascular risk. Literature is also accumulating on the potential non-cardiovascular benefits of statins, which could lead to novel applications of this class of drug in the future.

Evening the score on sex drugs: feminist movement or marketing masquerade? -BMJ

Ahead of this month’s FDA workshop on patient focused drug development for women’s sexual problems, Ray Moynihan questions a campaign to get a rejected drug licensed

A thrice failed antidepressant is at the centre of a new marketing campaign to win approval for what could become the world’s first blockbuster sex pill for women. Frustrated by the drug’s repeated rejection, proponents have orchestrated a fierce attack, accusing the regulator of unfairness, and enlisting support from several well connected women’s organisations in the US. Critics counter that the campaign is exceedingly misleading, that it targets a desire disorder that does not exist, and that approval could see widespread overprescribing of a drug with marginal benefits and real safety concerns.

Il tempo della separazione dei media è ormai terminato. Oggi si assiste ad una crescente integrazione tra media, non solo tra offline e online, ma anche tra strumenti diversi all'interno di ciascuna di queste due macrocategorie. La relazione tra TV e Twitter è forse l'esempio più evidente di questa convergenza. Sempre più spesso il telespettatore guarda la TV, twittando continuamente commenti su quanto visto. Un'infografica di Ipsos, relativa alla ricerca Mediact TV Influencers, mostra il potere di influenza degli utenti di Twitter: più fruizione delle forme televisive tradizionali e innovative, più propensione alla condivisione.

With the AMA obesity news dominating headlines in June, we wanted to share some data points on the obese from Kantar Media’s 2013 MARS OTC/DTC Study. About 2 of every 3 adults have weight issues with 64% having BMI’s of 25+ (overweight or obese), according to the study. Further, about 26% of all U.S. adults are considered obese (BMI 30+).

Here are 10 additional data points about obese adults as they now represent an even more important group of prospects for healthcare and pharma marketers.

Normative Impulsivity: Adorno on Ethics and the Body

Normative Impulsivity: Adorno on Ethics and the Body | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
Adorno’s commitment to anti-foundationalism generates a concern over how his ethically normative appraisals of social phenomena can be founded. Drawing on both Kohlmann and Bernstein’s account, I produce a new reading which contends somatic impulses are capable of bearing intrinsically normative epistemic and moral content. This entails a new way of understanding Adorno’s contention that Auschwitz produced a new categorical imperative. Working with Bernstein’s account, I claim that Auschwitz makes manifest the hostility of the instrumentalization of reason to the somatic grounds of reason. One’s mimetic identification with the victims of Auschwitz arouses a self-preserving desire to intercede in and re-orient the progress of reason itself, for the sake of one’s own somatic integrity. In closing, I claim – contra Zuidervaart – that this reading allows us to place the ethical as primary in Adorno, without reducing the political to it.
