A Web-Based Intervention to Reduce Alcohol-Exposed Pregnancies in the Community

Despite warnings that drinking during pregnancy is unsafe, many women are still at risk for an alcohol-exposed pregnancy (AEP). This article describes the outcomes of a web-based, self-guided change intervention designed to lower the risk for AEPs in a community. A sample of 458 women, between the ages of 18 and 44 years and at risk for an AEP (i.e., any drinking in the past 30 days and not using reliable contraception), participated in the study. A total of 58% of the women enrolled in the self-guided change intervention were no longer at risk for an AEP at the 4-month follow-up. Sublevel analysis revealed that mail and online versions of the intervention were equally successful at reducing risk for an AEP. This study represents a successful implementation of a web-based, self-guided change intervention to reduce risk for an AEP, an intervention with community-wide reach due to the Internet platform

Quantifying the social impact of research and medical journals : The Lancet

The content in today's Lancet has been selected for the European Society of Cardiology Congress in Barcelona on Aug 30—Sept 3, and reflects the leadership that cardiologists have shown in translating science into action with an enviable degree of evidence and tangible benefits to society. Nevertheless, even in cardiology, there is room for improvement and better alignment between research questions and the broader needs of societies.

Mediterranean diet, overweight and body composition in children from eight European countries: cross-sectional and prospective results from the IDEFICS study.

Although a Mediterranean dietary pattern is inversely associated with childhood obesity, it is not common in children living in the Mediterranean region and should therefore be advocated as part of EU obesity prevention strategies.

Interactive Games to Promote Behavior Change in Prevention and Treatment

Interactive Games to Promote Behavior Change in Prevention and Treatment | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it
Anyone who has observed someone deeply absorbed in a video game can appreciate that use of these games is a uniquely powerful interaction. For the player, time stands still and self-consciousness disappears. Csikszentmihalyi described this state as “flow.”1 His concept was exemplified by mountain climbers living in the moment of ascent or surgeons lost in a delicate and demanding task. He could just as well have been describing what happens when individuals engage with some of today's interactive games.

Online collaboration: Scientists and the social network

Online collaboration: Scientists and the social network | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it
In 2011, Emmanuel Nnaemeka Nnadi needed help to sequence some drug-resistant fungal pathogens. A PhD student studying microbiology in Nigeria, he did not have the expertise and equipment he needed. So he turned to ResearchGate, a free social-networking site for academics, and fired off a few e-mails. When he got a reply from Italian geneticist Orazio Romeo, an inter­national collaboration was born. Over the past three years, the two scientists have worked together on fungal infections in Africa, with Nnadi, now at Plateau State University in Bokkos, shipping his samples to Romeo at the University of Messina for analysis. “It has been a fruitful relationship,” says Nnadi — and they have never even met.

Alcohol industry magazine ads reminding consumers to “drink responsibly” or “enjoy in moderation” fail to convey basic public health information, according to a new study. Federal regulations do not require "responsibility" statements in alcohol advertising, and while the alcohol industry's voluntary codes for marketing and promotion emphasize responsibility, they provide no definition for "responsible drinking."

Science and society: vaccines and public health - Fine (2014) - Public Health

Science and society: vaccines and public health - Fine (2014) - Public Health | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

Most public health research is devoted to the measurement of disease burdens and of the costs and effectiveness of control measures. The history of immunization provides many colourful examples of various ways in which such measurements are made, of how they have influenced policies, and of the importance of public perception of the magnitudes of the various burdens, benefits and risks. Improving the public's ability to evaluate evidence is itself an important aspect of public health... 

 

One might liken public health to a set of scales, weighing the magnitudes and costs of various ‘problems’ on one side, and balancing these against the effectiveness and costs of various ‘control interventions’ on the other. Everyone in public health is involved somewhere in this spectrum of relating problems to solutions, and insofar as we are doing it scientifically, this means quantifying them in various ways... it often means assumptions have to be made.

 

It is also important to consider the importance of public perceptions of the magnitude or cost of a problem, and of the intervention being developed, implemented or evaluated. This review looks at measuring, estimating and perceiving the magnitude of burdens and costs with reference to immunization, as illustrative of many of the issues which confront public health... 


The tensions between public perceptions and scientific evidence relating to vaccines, which began during the nineteenth-century arguments over smallpox vaccination, remain with us today. Public perceptions are influenced greatly by the media... 


Some will recall a television programme which was shown in this country in 1974 - a consultant at the Great Ormond Street Hospital showed a child with severe brain damage and attributed it to the child's recent pertussis vaccination. As a consequence of this programme, the coverage of pertussis vaccine fell rapidly from close to 90% down to 35%, with the inevitable result that pertussis case numbers increased immensely. It took 20 years for the coverage to return to the previous level before. That television programme killed a lot of children... 

 

But inappropriate and negative media coverage is not restricted to vaccines, and includes many aspects of health. It is an important and constant aspect of all aspects of public health. Misinformation itself is a major public health problem. Among the issues that come up, in this context, are the several motives behind bad tabloid science... 

 

The most obvious solution is surely education e teaching people how to evaluate things critically, how to evaluate evidence. A headline from just a few weeks ago mentions the shortage of science and maths teachers: and this too is a public health problem, in at least two ways. A shortage of science teachers means fewer students being well trained in maths and the sciences subjects required for them to become our successors. We need there to be a lot of good teachers and students for our subject to prosper in the future. And a shortage of teachers will have broad implications on the ability of the public to evaluate scientific data...

‘Gamification’: Influencing health behaviours with games

Every month at Google Campus in London, dozens of software developers, clinicians, behavioural scientists and investors get together to discuss new strategies to influence health behaviours. The collective aim of these networking events is to develop digital ‘games with purpose’ that can improve health by integrating software design and game mechanics with public health theory and behavioural insights. Gamification is a purposely-broad umbrella term used to encompass the process of using ‘gaming’ elements to motivate and engage people in non-game contexts.1 Enhanced opportunities now exist to deliver behaviour change interventions through game platforms on new smartphone devices.
