Evidence, Ethics, and Values: A Framework for Health Promotion

Evidence, Ethics, and Values: A Framework for Health Promotion | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it
Questo studio presenta un nuovo approccio alla promozione della salute, e sottolinea l’importanza di integrare evidenze ed etica per stabilire le priorità. Nelle pratiche di promozione della salute, vengono evidenziati concetti come equità e giustizia, pur esistendo una discrepanza tra teorie e pratica, infatti, l’etica rimane spesso un concetto astratto. Come caso studio viene analizzata la campagna Australiana di social marketing “How Do You Measure Up? che si focalizza sul sovrappeso, suscitando interrogativi riguardanti efficacia ed etica.

Poor fetal growth and maternal smoking reduce sperm quality, finds study | BMJ

Poor fetal growth and maternal smoking reduce sperm quality, finds study | BMJ | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

Researchers have found that the quality of early life in the womb, especially fetal growth and whether the mother smoked, has an important effect later on young men’s testicular health.

The team, from Perth, Australia, looked at the testicular volume, semen quality, hormone production, and body fat composition in 423 men aged 22 and 23 years born to a cohort of 2900 mothers enrolled in a study during their pregnancy in 1989-91 (the Western Australia pregnancy (Raine) cohort (www.rainestudy.org.au)).

Graham Player Ph.D.'s curator insight, June 28, 2013 2:00 AM

It may surprise some of you to learn that your body is home to microscopic organisms (microorganisms or microbes) that outnumber your 100 trillion human cells by 10 to 1. Microbiology is focused on the study of these microorganisms which are found in every life form on earth and are vital to humans and to the environment. These microorganisms, together with their genomes and interactions, are known by the term ‘microbiome’.

Microbiologists have been studying and researching microbiomes for many years and it is an emerging field gaining more importance in understanding human health and disease. By far, the largest part of the genetic information inside our body is contained in the microbes of our microbiome rather than in the human genome itself. There are many researchers today who believe that the microbiome exerts at least as much influence, and possibly more, on our health than the genes we inherit from our parents.

Research has implicated the microbiome as a contributor to many disease conditions. It has also been found that transplanting microbe communities from healthy people to sick people can be beneficial in treating disease. The Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research, in Tokyo has now found through their research experiments that the microbiome has been implicated in liver cancer.

This is an exciting filed of research and opens up possibilities for health and understanding disease that may have not yet been imagined.

What to expect from health care between now and 2018 | Health Populi

What to expect from health care between now and 2018 | Health Populi | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

Employers who provide health insurance are getting much more aggressive in 2013 and beyond in terms of increasing employees’ responsibilities for staying well and taking our meds, shopping for services based on cost and value, and paying doctors based on their success with patients’ health outcomes and quality of care. Furthermore, nearly one-half expect that technologies like telemedicine, mobile health apps, and health kiosks in the back of grocery stores and pharmacies are expected to change the way people regularly receive health care.

Teaching professionalism in medical education: A Best Evidence Medical Education (BEME) systematic review. BEME Guide No. 25, Medical Teacher, Informa Healthcare

Discussion: Evident themes in the literature are that role modelling and personal reflections, ideally guided by faculty, are the important elements in current teaching programmes, and are widely held to be the most effective techniques for developing professionalism. While it is generally held that professionalism should be part of the whole of a medical curriculum, the specifics of sequence, depth, detail, and the nature of how to integrate professionalism with other curriculum elements remain matters of evolving theory.
