Developing and pilot testing an oral health screening tool for diabetes care providers

Diabetes care professionals, including general practitioners and diabetes educators, are encouraged to promote oral health of their patients'. However, there are currently no valid and reliable oral health screening solutions that assess the risk of poor oral health and are easy to administer among non-dental professionals. This effort sought to produce and pilot a short oral health screening instrument that would warn of existing oral diseases and encourage appropriate referrals to the dental office. The device was then piloted as part of a larger cross-sectional survey of 260 adults with diabetes who were attending public diabetes clinics at two Sydney, Australia locations. Conclusions The three-item screening system that was developed was found to be reliable and sensitive in detecting poor oral health in people with diabetes, which requires oral health referrals among diabetics in this pilot.

Resilience of the primary health care system – German primary care practitioners’ perspectives during the early COVID-19 pandemic

Abstract Background: Primary care is a vital pillar in managing not only personal but also societal medical crises. The COVID-19 pandemic has demanded a rapid response from primary care with changes in the health care system, which has prompted a rapid response. Primary care practitioners' responses during the early COVID-19 pandemic were analyzed in this paper to examine them with a focus on the primary health care system's resilience from the PCP's perspective. Shortly after the first COVID-19 wave n = 39, semi-structured telephone interviews were carried out with PCP in labs and in Corona contact points in Baden-Wuerttemberg. Conclusions The findings can be used for practical and scientific-based institutional and capacity planning, for improving sustainability in primary care and augmenting by input from other stakeholders in the primary health care system, as shown by the following links.

Can digital health researchers make a difference during the pandemic? Results of the chatbot-led Elena+: Care for COVID-19 intervention (Preprint)

BACKGROUND chatbot-led health services have increased in popularity in recent years and have been successfully applied to a variety of health conditions, including the prevention of non-communicable diseases. However, chatbots must shift from merely a tool to treat selected subpopulations to one that can address a variety of lifestyle health issues holistically for maximum public health benefit. OBJECTIVE DATA OBJECTIVE —The new paper summarizes Elena+: Care for COVID-19, a digital health app developed by leading digital health specialists around the world, to address the collateral harm posed by lockdowns and social exclusion by lockdowns and social incarceration by providing pandemic lifestyle coaching in seven health areas: anxiety, loneliness, mental health, sleep, diet, and physical fitness, and COVID-19 results The study found that changes in health outcome measurements and user experience evaluations have changed over time using paired samples T-test and within subjects ANOVA. Physical fitness with 62% and anxiety with 46. 5 percent of people categorized as vulnerable in these categories were among the greatest areas of health risk as assessed with screening results. Mediation studies revealed that while increasing number of subtopics completed increased behavioral engagement, behavioral changes did not necessarily lead to changes in health outcome assessments. The current intervention was launched at a rapid pace to suit the emergency pandemic environment, so it looks promising for other chatbot-led digital health services that address population level health problems.

Health Care Professionals, Rurality, and Intimate Femicide

Scholars have begun to point to the inaccessibility of health services in these areas as an explanation, with studies showing that intimate partner violence is more prevalent and homicide is more prevalent in rural areas. Rurality moderates the association between health care professionals and intimate femicide, according to the study, although it is not as expected.

Health Care Utilization of US Medicare Beneficiaries Living with Parkinson′s Disease

Parkinson's disease is expected to increase in the coming years. This report looked at the health care utilization patterns of Medicare beneficiaries with a PD diagnosis who were enrolled in 2019. Few Medicare beneficiaries with PD needed assistance from a mobility disorder specialist, while another 59% sought treatment from a general neurologist. Low utilization rates for therapy and even lower rates for mental health services were found in studies, which suggested low use for therapy and even lower rates for mental health services.

A snapshot of health information exchange across five nations: an investigation of frontline clinician experiences in emergency care

Abstract Summary Objective : The aim of determining the ability to exchange patient data among many electronic health record platforms is a top priority and a subject of significant public investment across countries. Methods and Methods We undertook in-person, semistructured interviews with emergency care practitioners and nurses in several hospitals in Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, and the United States. We characterized the state of health information exchange by region and used thematic analysis to determine the perceived benefits of accessing complete past medical history, including the conditions under which PMH is sought, and the barriers to accessing and using HIE capabilities. Mode-acuity patients, patients with persistent disorders, and instances where accessing PMH was convenient were among the conditions under which PMH was sought. Conclusion As countries continue to focus on broad-based HIE, they appear to be facing similar difficulties in realizing HIE value and, therefore, the opportunity to learn from one another.

Risk for acute kidney injury in primary health care

ABSTRACT OBJECTIVE PURPOSE: Objective: To determine hypertensive and diabetic patients at risk for acute kidney injury in the primary health care setting. Results: Of the total sample, 23. 2% of users developed with renal disease, of which 19. 6% were at risk for renal injury, and 3. 6% with kidney injury. According to the RIFLE classification, a quarter of the health system users, hypertensive and diabetic, developed with impaired renal function, more specifically to stages of risk for renal disease and kidney injury.

Factors that Influence Teenage Antenatal Care Utilization in John Taolo Gaetsewe (JTG) District of Northern Cape Province, South Africa: Underscoring the Need for Tackling Social Determinants of Health

In John Taolo Gaetsewe, a predominantly rural and poor district of South Africa, a factor that contributes to the uptake of ANC services among teenage women is largely understudied and poorly understood. The aim of this investigation was to identify the reasons that influenced the uptake of ANC services among teenage mothers in the JTG district. Methods: In all public health care facilities in the JTG district, a cross-sectional health facility-based research using the mixed method was conducted. Mothers age; distance to the nearest health center; and client service satisfaction is highly associated with poor uptake of ANC services, according to a logistic regression study. 96 percentCI =2. 20-34. 95 Conclusions and Global Health Implications: There is a need to ensure the consistency of adolescent reproductive health services that are suited to their health and developmental needs. In addition, addressing the socioeconomic determinants of health that influence individuals healthy life style and health seeking behavior is critical.

Association Between Student’s Profile and Academic Achievement in an e-learning Primary Health Care Specialization Course

Using information from the UNA-SUS/UFCSPA's Family Health Specialization course, the aim of the present research was to investigate the correlation between the student's profile and academic achievement. The student's final grade was used to track their academic achievement, and the student's status at the end of the program was determined; the student's final grade was considered to assess academic achievement. To establish a correlation between the student profiles and academic achievement, a descriptive analysis and logistic regression models were developed. To establish an association between the student profiles and academic accomplishments, a descriptive analysis and logistic regression models were developed. The achievement in the course and grade in a complicated cases essay was related to the achievement in the course and grade in complex situations.
