Choosing Wisely — The Politics and Economics of Labeling Low-Value Services — NEJM | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it
With its Choosing Wisely campaign, the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation boldly invited professional societies to own their role as “stewards of finite health care resources.”1 Beginning in 2009, the National Physicians Alliance, funded by the ABIM Foundation, guided volunteers from three primary care specialties through the development of “Top Five” lists — specialty-specific enumerations of five achievable practice changes to improve patient health through better treatment choices, reduced risks and, where possible, reduced costs.2

The mouse gave life to the mountain: Gramsci and health promotion

Health promotion and salutogenesis are embodied in people's everyday lives and in their stories. The assumptions of these scientific theories are similar to Gramsci's theory for better wellbeing in a community, where praxis and capacity building for reflective practice is the way forward for an equal global change. By explaining the road for transformation through narratives, particularly fables, Gramsci manages to reach people from all walks of life, from academics to children. One of these fables, the mouse and the mountain, is here presented as a trigger to health promotion action and as a metaphor for salutogenic thinking. The narrative paradigm for health promotion is the context within which the analogies among ‘the mouse's plan’, health promotion theory, the salutogenic model, empowerment as well as the practitioners’ opinions and experience are discussed and presented. In so doing, a ‘storytelling bridge’ is created between academics, practitioners and other stakeholders from the health, social and pedagogical arenas in knowledge construction environments. Hence, the article confers the possible contribution of Gramsci's educational perspective within health promotion by presenting a practical example of the use of narratives for capacity building. This is described through the interpretation of the same story in a hypothetical speech told by different storytellers, communicating their personal vision of the mouse's plan and so create a narrative-centered health promotion communication for meaning-making and for embracing theories among scholars and practitioners.

Does monetary poverty reflect caloric intake? - Bocoum &al (2014) - Food Security

Does monetary poverty reflect caloric intake? - Bocoum &al (2014) - Food Security | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

The use of expenditure surveys to measure food insecurity is widely discussed. In this study, we investigate food insecurity in terms of monetary poverty.

 

Using a Malian survey that incorporates exceptionally detailed information on food consumption, we estimate that 35 % of the households are in a paradoxical situation, some poor households managing to cover their caloric requirements by eating cheap calories and some non-poor households not doing so because they consume expensive calories and/or face constraints such as the obligation to share meals with visitors and high expenditure on health care or transportation.

 

These findings highlight precautions that need to be taken when measuring food insecurity through monetary income or expenditure indicators.

Alexander J. Stein's curator insight, February 13, 5:26 PM

"some poor households managing to cover their caloric requirements by eating cheap calories" >> Unfortunately the article is behind a paywall, but calories is not everything -- "hidden hunger" (i.e. the lack of essential vitamins and minerals in the diet) affects billions of people, reducing their well-being, compromising their health and even shortening their lives... Hence, while these poor households might cover their energy requirements, they might still suffer from undernutrition.

Internet Use, Browsing, and the Urban Poor: Implications for Cancer Control

Conclusions Our data show that the availability of Internet can lead to significant increase in its use among low SEP groups. Low SEP members used the Internet for participation and engagement, but the sites visited differed by group. Harnessing the power of social networking sites and shareware sites may be a way to increase access to health information.

Australian health promotion practitioners' perceptions on evaluation of empowerment and participation

Although participation and empowerment are hallmarks of the WHO vision of health promotion, it is acknowledged that they are difficult to evaluate. Devising adequate study designs, indicators and methods for the assessment of participation and empowerment should consider the experiences, concerns and constraints of health promotion practitioners. The aim of this study was to investigate health promotion practitioners' perspectives on general and methodological aspects of evaluation of empowerment and participation.

Ace Cato's curator insight, April 14, 1:45 AM

Exposure with pain pills such as percolate, Vicodin and the likes are really alarming. As my mom being a physician in the Philippines we used to hear stories about cases she encounter at the emergency room, but not so many pain pills related cases; since we don't really have this codeine based pills at home. as she works now in the pharmacy field she knows, and see how rampant the pain pills consumption here in Everett area was amazingly high. Reading this article made more aware of this things and be careful dealing with other teens who i know be at risk of this kind of hobbit.

Regional HIV knowledge hubs: a new approach by the health sector to transform knowledge into practice

This study aims to introduce the knowledge hub (KH) as an initiative to facilitate transformation of knowledge into practice and to highlight the activity and limitations with this new policy. The study was conducted through a review of articles; expert views in this field were sought for further information. Regional human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) KHs were developed by the World Health Organization and GTZ. A series of activities including capacity building, development of training models, technical assistance, and application of studies are provided through these hubs. However, financial limitations are the main obstacle in achieving these aims. This piece of work introduces these HIV hubs in order to help countries, particularly developing countries, provide the support needed to fight the progression of HIV.
