What is Primary Health Care ( PHC )?
This is an animated video lecture on PRIMARY HEALTH CARE based on the PARK TEXTBOOK of COMMUNITY MEDICINE. Hey guys.......welcome to abmbbs.....todays topic is PRIMARY HEALTH CARE.....now this is a topic which is quite complicated in the PARK TEXTBOOK but in this video we have condensed the chapter & given only the must know points. First up...what is the definition of Primary Health Care?? Primary Health Care is the essential health care made universally accessible to individuals & acceptable to them , through their full participation & at a cost the country & community can afford. Now, the definition in itself is pretty complicated & is bound to make you nauseous. But if you break it down to just the main points then it gets pretty simple..........Remember that Primary Health Care consists only of the bare essentials of our health care needs.It is the bare minimum which needs to be given in any medical condition.........….Secondly Primary Health Care must be accessible to the people to whom it is being given.A big tertiary care hospital located 20kms away from the patients home cannot be considered as Primary Health Care............Thirdly the Primary Health Care that is given must be acceptable to the patients.A rectal exam or a colonoscopy might not be acceptable to the majority of the population & hence should not be considered as Primary Health Care..............The community to whom the Primary Health Care is being given must actively take part in the process.Without their full participation Primary Health Care cannot be truly given.............................Finally,the healthcare that is given in Primary Health Care must be in accordance to the economic condition of the country. Next we come to the Principles of Primary Health Care...........Number 1 is Equitable Distribution.......the majority of the healthcare services in India are concentrated in the towns & cities.... whereas the rural areas which need healthcare services more hardly have any.....Primary Health Care aims to redress this imbalance by focussing on the rural areas & bringing these services as close to people's home as possible. Number 2 is Community Participation …....As mentioned earlier, without the full participation of the local population, discharging healthcare needs is not possible...So Government of India is training village health guides & local dais from the local community itself.....these people, being localites, can overcome the cultural & communication barriers more easily. Number 3 is Intersectoral Coordination...Government of India has realised that Primary Health Care cannot be provided by the healthcare sector alone.The different wings of the government must come together & work in an integrated fashion. Number 4 is Appropriate Technology.... Now it goes without saying that the government spending on healthcare is extremely low & our our public healthcare institutions do not have the money for doing costly diagnostic tests & treatments...So Primary Health Care in India must rely on low budget technologies..One such technology is ORS...it is a low cost treatment for diarrhoea & dehydration..it can be stored anywhere & hardly has any side effects. Next we come to the levels of Primary Health Care....First is the Primary level...it is the first level of contact between the healthcare setup & the patient.It includes Subcentre &....Primary Health Centre. The secondary level or the 1st referral level is the Community health centre. Finally comes the Tertiary level which is the 2nd referral level.It includes Medical colleges & hospitals. So......now lets talk about Subcentre in detail....this one...It is the most peripheral & 1st contact point between the healthcare facility & the patient.It has 3 employees.....the health worker male, the health worker female & voluntary worker.Also the ministry of health & family welfare provides 100% funding for subcentres. Guys....thank you for watching this video...Please do not forget to like , share & subscribe if you like our work....the abmbbs community is growing at a phenominal rate & we are truly grateful to you. We believe that medical education should be fun & free for everyone.......Bubyeeee......& happy learning..

What is Demography in Community Medicine / PSM
This is an animated video lecture on the Chapter DEMOGRAPHY from the PARK Textbook of Community Medicine. Hi...welcome to abmbbs....one of our subscribers....Dr. Ayesha Iqbal...had asked for a video on the chapter of “Demography” from the PARK TEXTBOOK of COMMUNITY MEDICINE....so this video is made on her request..... Now the 1st thing you should know about this chapter is that PARK contains a lot of data on the current demographic status of india....these numbers keep changing from year to year & from edition to edition....I will be dealing with them in another video...in this video I will be talking about the basics & core concepts of demography which does not really change much. So what is demography? Demography is the scientific study of human popuation... What are the different demographic processes...fertility, marriage, mortality, migration &.....social mobility. Next we come to Demographic cycle....As you can see it has 5 stages...High Stationary, Early Expanding, Late Expanding, Low Stationary & Declining.....The high stationary stage has both high birth rate & high death rate...so they end up cancelling each other...& the net population remains constant...India was in this stage till 1920........Next.......is the Early Expanding stage....here the birth rate remains high but the death rate declines...possibly due to better healthcare facilities..so..the net population increases....Next is the Late Expanding Stage.....here the death rate declines further but the birth rate also starts declining....so in total the population still continues to grow,.....India now belongs to this stage...........Next is the Low Stationary Stage....here both the birth rate & death rate decline & they both cancel each other....so the net population remains constant......Finally there is the Declining Stage....here the net population begins to decline because birth rate is lower than death rate....Germany & Hungary are currently in this stage.... Next we come to this graph....this is not given in PARK but I feel everybody should know this graph because it helps to understand the concept of Demographic Cycle better......the numbers here denote the stages ....the pink line stands for the birth rate , the blue line shows the death rate &.....the red line denotes the total population....so...once again quickly....in the 1st stage or high stationary stage the birth & death rate is high, so the net population is constant....in the 2nd stage or Early Expanding Stage the death death rate decreases but the birth rate remains constant...so net population increases...in the 3rd or Late Expanding Stage the birth rate begins to decline but the net population still continues to rise...4th stage or Low Stationary Stage stabilizes the population & finally the 5th or Declining Stage causes the population to decline because birth rate goes below death rate... Next tell me what is demographic window? It is that period of time in a country when the working age population is more...that is when people above 65years denote less than 15% of the population & people below 15 is less than 30%....India will be in this stage from 2010 to 2050.... Next is Demographic trap....It is that time when population growth is high due to high Birth rate & low Death Rate.....it basically denotes stage 2 of the demographic cycle Next we come to some definitions...it can get a bit boring for the next 45 seconds but trust me its important....1st is Crude Birth rate...it is the number of live births per year per 1000 mid year population. Crude Death Rate is the number of deaths per year per 1000 mid year population. Annual Growth Rate is Crude Birth Rate – Crude Death Rate Finally Growth Ratio is Growth Rate X 100

Inspiring Non Traditional Jobs in Nursing
Inspiring Non-Traditional Jobs in Nursing: From Changing the World to Leading the Way: What Can I Do with a Nursing Degree? Find out here! Nursing specialties inspired by a passion for social change A common answer to the question, “So, why did you go into nursing?” is, “To make a difference in my patient’s lives.” But, what if you had a drive to affect widespread change? Public health nursing, public health research, or epidemics research might be your dream field. Public health nurses are charged with caring for entire communities. They help determine which factors directly impact their community’s health and work to create interventions to help as many people as possible. Advocacy and health education are the mainstays of public health nursing. Public health research nurse. If research fuels your passion, public health nurse researcher is a profession to consider. Hospitals are over-crowded and understaffed. Nurses who provide care in the community allow for vulnerable populations to remain in their homes and out of the hospital and nursing facilities. Home health nurses visit the homes of their patients to perform skilled nursing tasks such as assessments, wound care, medication management, and care planning. Similarly, hospice nurses enter the homes of patients at the end of their life to make sure their needs are met. They focus on pain control, helping the families through the grieving process, and ensure the patient’s dignity is maintained. Community nurses may focus on one special population, such as patients with HIV, homeless patients, or immigrants. They work to ensure care is available that is specific to the population. Legal nurse consultants analyze and give opinions about delivery of care and outcomes related to medical malpractice, personal injury, or life care plan cases. A law degree is not necessary; most LNCs learn on the job¹. They may be employed by law firms, hospitals, insurance companies, government agencies, or themselves. Specializing in fields of medicine Pediatric nursing can be extremely challenging, but also incredibly rewarding. You could find yourself caring for primarily asthma patients on a respiratory care floor, trauma patients in the pediatric ICU, or babies weighing less than a pound fighting for their lives in the newborn ICU. Oncology nurses are specially trained in caring for patients with cancer. These often medically fragile individuals require chemotherapy, which the nurses have to be certified to administer, and their care is often exceedingly complex. If you’re ready to step away from the bedside, however, perhaps informatics is a possibility for you. As a health informatics nurse, you could work on a specific unit to help tease data from the patient charts to help the medical teams recognize patterns in care and outcomes. This is an excellent way to be a part of the healthcare team while forgoing direct patient care. Adrenaline boosters: Exciting fields for nurses! Do you spend your days off rock climbing, whitewater rafting, or skydiving? Perhaps you need a nursing job that gets your adrenaline flowing. Critical care nurses care for the sickest of the sick in intensive care units. They’re highly-trained individuals who drag patient's back from the brink of death on a daily basis. Critical care nurses are often required to respond to codes in the rest of the hospital. Emergency department nurses in trauma centers assess and stabilize patients who may come in after a car crash, gunshot wound, or home improvement accidents. Their patient loads vary from dehydration from the flu, accidental dismemberment, to mass casualty incidents, and much more. Case management nurses help to coordinate the care of patients with complex medical needs who receive multiple services. They often work with medical teams in the hospital to ensure the patient’s needs will be met upon discharge. Clinical nurse leaders are masters-prepared nurses who work in a specific hospital unit. They assess the needs of their patient population and determine which health issues are specific to them. Pressure ulcers, central line-associated bloodstream infections, ventilator-associated pneumonia all fall within the purview of the clinical nurse leader. These are but a fraction of the non-traditional nursing opportunities available!

Family Advancement for Life and Health (FALAH)
Birth spacing--allowing three to five years to pass between births--results in a lower risk of miscarriage, newborn death, and maternal death. Leading a consortium of five organizations, the Population Council, through FALAH, aims to enhance access to high-quality family planning services and increase healthy birth spacing in rural areas of Pakistan. The project is being implemented in 26 districts of all four provinces in Pakistan. popcouncil.org/projects/214_FALAH.asp

What a Japanese Nursing Home is Like
In this video, we go on a tour of a couple of Azalee's Nursing Homes in Japan. In Japan, hospitals and clinics must be non-profit and owned and operated by physicians. Health care costs are standardized across the country, with no single physicians able to charge a different price for a procedure. However, non-medical expenses, such as room and board in a nursing home, are up to the discretion of the respective facilities. While costs at Azalee vary patient by patient, Dr. Kurusu, the chairman of the Azalee Group, estimated that a patient might pay about $2,000USD a month for all expenses, including food, lodging, and their portion of medical costs (the Japanese government covers 90% of medical expenses for seniors).

All Nursing Degree Types: LPN/LVN, ADN, BSN, APRN, MSN & NP!
The field of nursing is filled with driven individuals who share a passion for caring for others, often more of a calling than a career. If you are inspired to help people, you may be considering becoming a nurse yourself. The healthcare industry is an ever-evolving area of study, in part because new innovations happen every day. Nursing is not only a solid career choice today, but it is a personal care role that you can be sure will continue to be vital in the future. Civilization will always need nurses, and if you enjoy the work, it can make an immensely rewarding profession. Visit our Scholarships Page: http://nursejournal.org/articles/nursing-scholarships-grants/ Nursing as a business is booming due to several factors. As the average lifespan of the population rises, nurses are in ever-higher demand to care for aging patients. Where in the past, a grown child might have taken on the responsibility of caring for his or her senior parent, the modern family structure often finds both husband and wife working outside of the home, leaving an opening for a nurse to care for elderly family members instead. There has always been a need for nurses in hospitals across the world. However, there is now also a rising demand for nurses working as personal aides and home care providers to patients who wish to be cared for in the privacy of their own homes. There are a number of paths you can take if you wish to become a nurse, each with varying requirements and commitments to match to a variety of lifestyles, career goals and time frames. You could spend years earning qualifications and degrees for more advanced nursing work, or you can complete classes in just twelve short months and jump into your new career. Now let’s explore all nursing degree types! Entry-Level Nursing Degrees If you’re seeking a nursing license but still want to finish quickly, Licensed Practical Nursing or Licensed Vocational Nursing program may be the best choice for you. LPN/LVN programs offer the fastest track to becoming a nurse, and you can generally complete them in one year. You can usually find classes nearby at a local hospital or community college, making this an excellent path to nursing while maintaining other obligations in your life, such as work or family. At the end of your LPN/LVN program, you’ll be eligible to earn your license after passing a state-administered nursing exam. If you’re seeking a degree and the career achievements that can accompany a higher level of education, consider earning your associate’s degree in nursing. An ADN meets the minimum requirements for becoming a licensed RN and offers a well-rounded education experience, usually completed in two years, which blends liberal arts classes with clinical nursing practice. You’ll take classes like anatomy, math, and biology in addition to having more practical application time. If you’ve graduated from an LVN/LPN program already, the length to your ADN could be as short as one additional year. With either option, LPN/LVN or ADN, you can become and work as a licensed nurse. An associate’s degree offers the ability to work as a registered nurse, which comes with a higher pay grade and greater responsibilities. As a registered nurse, you can also transition to the business side of healthcare and can more easily continue your education to a bachelor’s degree or beyond. The Bachelor of Science in nursing provides another path to earning your RN license, but we’ll get to that in a minute. To become a licensed or registered nurse, you’ll need to pass one of the state-administered nursing examinations, sometimes called the “boards.” If you’re seeking to practice as an LPN/LVN, you’ll be taking the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for Practical Nurses. If you wish to become a registered nurse, you’ll have to pass the NCLEX-RN instead. Both exams are in place to ensure that it’s safe for you to begin practice as a nurse. These exams test your critical thinking skills, as well as the application of your learned knowledge, to ensure that your education has prepared you to safely apply what you have learned when providing direct patient care. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing is available as either a pre-licensure degree that will qualify you to take the NCLEX and become a registered nurse, or as a post-licensure degree for ADN-prepared nurses looking to advance their knowledge and their careers. Earning a bachelor’s degree in nursing opens the door to higher salary potential, more responsibility and even supervisory roles. If you choose this route to becoming licensed, you’ll be committing to four years of in-depth nursing coursework, and depending on the school you choose, the price of the degree can be expensive. If you’ve already earned your associate’s degree in nursing, you can usually complete the bachelor-level studies in two additional years.

Anticipatory Care Planning Application
Mainstreaming ACP (Anticipatory Care Planning) has been identified nationally as a priority to support delivery of the 2020 vision and the Health and Wellbeing Outcomes linked with the Health and Social Care Integration. The National Action Plan for ACP highlights the need to recognise and build on the many examples of good work around ACP being taken forward across Scotland. It responds to the challenge of providing care for a population with an increasing prevalence of complex needs, long term conditions and multiple morbidities through appropriate early intervention to optimise personal outcomes and quality of life. Taking forward large scale change across Scotland is a challenge that requires whole system organisational, professional and public awareness and support. During the many focus groups held with a range of stakeholders, the request for an ACP app continually arises. SCET has worked with Health Improvement Scotland to develop such an app. The ACP app gives an individual the chance to think about, discuss and plan ahead for any change in their health or care needs. It contains a feature that allows an individual to record how they feel about their condition and helps an individual to have discussions with other people involved in their care, for example, the family or GP. The app contains an appointments facility to allow the individual to record appointments (eg. with their GP, practice nurse, hospital consultant) and for reminders to be generated when the appointments are due.

Types of nursing diagnoses: Actual, Problem-focused, Risk, Wellness, Health-Promotion ...
In this video we are going to review the following types of nursing diagnoses: Actual Diagnosis Problem-focused Diagnosis Risk Diagnosis Wellness Diagnosis Health-Promotion Diagnosis Possible Diagnosis and Syndrome Diagnosis Then I will briefly talk about Potential Complication or Collaborative Diagnoses even though they are not actually types of nursing diagnoses. Not all textbooks will discuss all of the types of Diagnoses in this video so be sure to check with your professor which ones you need to know and apply. Also, depending on how old your textbook is you may see some terminology used to describe a type of nursing diagnosis that has since been re-labeled. This video will define the types of nursing diagnoses you see on your screen, and identify how they have been re-labeled in the 2015 - 2017 NANDA International Definitions and Classifications textbook. NANDA only uses three categories of nursing diagnoses – Problem-focused, Health Promotion and Risk Diagnoses. They also use syndromes within these three categories to cluster diagnoses that are closely related. http://youstudynursing.com/ Research eBook on Amazon: http://amzn.to/1hB2eBd Check out the links below and SUBSCRIBE for more youtube.com/user/NurseKillam For help with Research - Get my eBook "Research terminology simplified: Paradigms, axiology, ontology, epistemology and methodology" here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GLH8R9C Related Videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLs4oKIDq23AfdIxE8NvwnhbORnb_dE_RJ Connect with me on Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/youstudynursing https://www.facebook.com/NursesDeservePraise Twitter: @NurseKillam https://twitter.com/NurseKillam Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/laura.killam LinkedIn: http://ca.linkedin.com/in/laurakillam

Why Are American Health Care Costs So High?
In which John discusses the complicated reasons why the United States spends so much more on health care than any other country in the world, and along the way reveals some surprising information, including that Americans spend more of their tax dollars on public health care than people in Canada, the UK, or Australia. Who's at fault? Insurance companies? Drug companies? Malpractice lawyers? Hospitals? Or is it more complicated than a simple blame game? (Hint: It's that one.) For a much more thorough examination of health care expenses in America, I recommend this series at The Incidental Economist: http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/what-makes-the-us-health-care-system-so-expensive-introduction/ The Commonwealth Fund's Study of Health Care Prices in the US: http://www.commonwealthfund.org/~/media/Files/Publications/Issue%20Brief/2012/May/1595_Squires_explaining_high_hlt_care_spending_intl_brief.pdf Some of the stats in this video also come from this New York Times story: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/02/health/colonoscopies-explain-why-us-leads-the-world-in-health-expenditures.html?pagewanted=all This is the first part in what will be a periodic series on health care costs and reforms leading up to the introduction of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, in 2014.

Average Nurse Practitioner Salary 2017
How Nurse Practitioner Salaries and Employment Compare by State and Specialty Location, location, location: Your state determines your salary we have chosen several references to show you the avg NP Salary 2017 see below for a list of the references. As with any profession, your location plays a large part in determining your yearly salary. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the mean salary is $104,610 across the country and the highest average salary is in California--$124,330. Other top earning states are Alaska ($121,250), Massachusetts ($117, 860), Hawaii ($117,180), and New Jersey ($115,230)¹. One must consider the cost of living in each state to determine which state pays the most in relation to how much it costs to live there. Most nurse practitioners are employed in doctor’s offices, but hospital jobs pay better. The lowest paying states include Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Montana, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Pennsylvania, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, many of these states have significantly lower costs of living than the highest paying states, so it’s possible the pay is relative. Specializing: Responsibilities and Income Potential NP Private Practice Income The most popular nurse practitioner specialty is the family medicine nurse practitioner. These nurse practitioners work primarily in clinics and medical offices to provide primary healthcare and preventative medicine across the lifespan. Their focus is generally on the well-adult population but can provide general care to most patients with an annual average salary of $89,043 according to payscale.com. The preparatory program is a two year masters degree. Pediatric nurse practitioners care for children in clinics and medical offices as well as in hospitals. Their mean salary according to payscale.com is $85,000. Pediatric nursing experience is recommended for application to the MSN program. Primary healthcare and preventative medicine is also the pediatric nurse practitioner’s forte, providing health education to parents as children grow and develop. Neonatal nurse practitioners generally work in neonatal intensive care units across the country. Depending on the level of the NICU, they work alongside physicians to assess, diagnose, and treat complex medical conditions of critically ill newborns. Their average salary according to payscale.com is $94,616. Autonomy of these professionals depends on the state and the hospital in which they practice. Women’s health nurse practitioners work in obstetrician/gynecologist offices to provide well-women exams, family planning, and reproductive counseling. According to Payscale.com, the median pay for WHNP is $85,730 Who makes the most? Top paying specialties Certified registered nurse anesthetists, or CRNAs, are the highest paying nursing specialty. While collaborating with anesthesiologists, they put patients under anesthesia during procedures in hospitals, outpatient surgery centers, dentist offices, and others. According to a Payscale.com report in May 2016, their average salary was $164,030. The CRNA program is one of the most competitive to enter with an extremely rigorous application process; several years of experience as a nurse in adult and pediatric ICUs are required. It is generally a full-time program and too demanding to work while in the program. Gerontological nurse practitioners work specifically with the elderly. Providing healthcare to the elderly is uniquely challenging and requires special knowledge and training. Payscale.com lists their average salary at around $95,990. Due to the aging of the largest generation our country has seen, a career as a gerontological nurse practitioner has fantastic prospects. Acute care nurse practitioners provide care in the hospital setting in critical care units such as intensive care and stepdown units. Years of experience as a registered nurse in critical care units are recommended for matriculation to the two year masters program. On average, acute care nurse practitioners according to payscale.com bring home around $97,000. They are an integral part of the medical team managing care alongside medical residents and other physicians for acutely ill patients. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are another high-paying specialty. They work in psychiatric hospitals and general medicine hospitals to provide mental health care to patients both in and out of the hospital. Reimbursement averages per payscal.com is $97,800 for their work. As with many nurse practitioner programs, nurses can earn their psychiatric nurse practitioner MSN online.

Population: Challenge and Response (USAID, 1974)
This program presents a broad overview of the problem of overpopulation and the attempts underway in several countries to meet the challenge of curbing population growth. Support for such programs by the United Nations and through the United States Agency for International Development are briefly discussed. Each country's customs and religous views are considered in designing the best solutions to offer men and women. Countries profiled include El Salvador, the Philippines, Liberia, Tunisia, India, and Korea. The programs in Korea are discussed in somewhat greater detail, as they are considered to have been more successful than efforts elsewhere.

Early Rheumatoid Arthritis: Clinical Guideline for Diagnosis and Management
Rheumatoid arthritis affects 1 in 100 Australians. It is a major cause of disability and psychological distress due to its chronic, painful and disabling character. Rheumatoid arthritis, an inflammatory autoimmune disease, is the second most common type of arthritis after osteoarthritis. The disease is more common amongst women and in the older age groups. Untreated rheumatoid arthritis can result in joint damage and deformities. The disease impacts on activities of daily living, capacity to work, and family life. Early diagnosis and medical intervention are critical to limiting structural damage and improving health outcomes. The Clinical Guideline for Diagnosis and Management of Early Rheumatoid Arthritis presents recommendations to assist and support clinical judgement of GPs in managing patients with rheumatoid arthritis. This program, in line with the Guideline, focuses on diagnosis, early management, and coordination of multidisciplinary care needs for people with rheumatoid arthritis. Pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions are reviewed. The Clinical Guideline recognises the need for every patient with rheumatoid arthritis to have a thorough assessment of their individual needs; access to a range of health professionals; and a comprehensive care plan. This program is one of four in the Musculoskeletal Guideline Series. The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) has developed national musculoskeletal clinical guidelines for general practitioners and other primary care health professionals for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis and osteoporosis.

World Health Organization ( WHO )
This is animated video based on the Chapter " INTERNATIONAL HEALTH" from the PARK Textbook of Community medicine. Hi.Welcome to abmbbs..todays's topic is WHO or the World Health Organisation.....in this video we will discuss the main topics in the chapter International Health in the PARK Textbook of Community Medicine.......................Now, to understand the origins of WHO we need to 1st understand the concept of quarantine...... In 14th century Europe , people were terrified of Plague.....so ….ships suspected of harbouring the infection were detained at port for a period of 40days before they could enter the city....the idea was that, with the passage of time , the underlying infection would either manifest into full blown disease ….or die out....thus , protecting the citizens...this was called Quarantine....but there was no uniformity in the quarantine measures in the different parts of the world......so,..... in 1851 ,..... an International Sanitary Conference was convened.... at Paris.....to bring about some order &uniformity......but it failed.......... In 1902, …...a Pan American Sanitary Bureau was set up , to bring unformity in the quarantine measures in the American states.......it was the world's 1st international health agency...............it was later renamed Pan American Health Organisation..... in 1958...&, its headquarters is in Washington DC. Next.....after the 1st world war, the Health wing of the League of nations was set up in 1923. Then …..there was the 2nd World War.......following which the United Nations was set up.......the WHO , was, 1 of the many parts of UN..... So,... in April 1945.....a conference was held in San Francisco ,in which …..Brazil...& China...proposed, that an international health organisation should be established......so.....on 7th April 1948......the WHO, formally came into existance.......& this day is celebrated as World Health Day.......a World Health Day theme is chosen every year , to focus attention on a specific aspect of public health for that year......for example...in 2015....it was Food safety......in 2016 it was Diabetes.....& ….in 2017 ,it is....depression.... The objective of the WHO..... is the attainment of highest levels of health by all people....it is a part of …..but ….not subordinate to the UN......it has its own constitution, own governing body & budget......Switzerland is a part of WHO but not United Nations..... Next we come to the works of the WHO.....it helps in the prevention & control of specific diseases like......small pox....& now...polio....it helps, in the development of health services....improvement of family health...........improvement of environmental health.......maintenance of health statistics.,....like the International Classification of Diseases or ICD which is updated every 10 years............promotion of biomedical research....maintenance of health literature &......cooperation with other global organizations..... Next, we come to the structure of the WHO.......the WHO has mainly 3 organs.......the world health assembly.....the executive board.....&....the Secretariat..... The WORLD HEALTH ASSEMBLY is the supreme governing body.....it is also called the “ Health Parliament ”......it meets annually, usually in May....in Geneva.... The EXECUTIVE BOARD ,consists of 34 members , of which 1/3rd are renewed annually.....it meets twice a year.....in january....& in may....it gives effect to the decisions of the assembly....& can also take action itself in case of emergency..... The SECRETARIAT is headed by the director general.....&...it provides technical & managerial support to member states.. The WHO is divided into 6 regions.....each headed by a Regional director......as you can see in the table...the headquarter of the south east asia region is New Delhi....,. This brings us to the end of the topic.....now just for the sake of completion, we will discuss some other important world organisations......first comes.... UNICEF.....it stood for....United Nations International Childrens Emergency Fund......it was set up to deal with the rehabilitation of children in war ravaged countries.....in 1953, it was renamed....United Nations Children's Fund.......it's headquarters is in New York....the UNICEF is actively promoting the GOBI campaign now....G for growth chart, O for ORS, B for Breastfeeding & I for immunization. Next is the UNDP......which stands for United Nations Development Programme There’s the UNFPA.....which stands for United Nations Fund for Population Activities. There's the FAO......or Food & Agriculture Organization....its headquarter is in Rome There' the ILO.......or the International Labour Organization....its headquarter is in Geneva Finally.....there's the World Bank....it is governed by a board of governors.....&....it gives loan for projects that lead to economic growth of the country...

MRSA Methicillin Resistant Saphylococcus Aureus - Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
Educational video describing the condition of MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Saphylococcus Aureus) infection and treatment. MRSA is a contagious bacteria that mya cause infection. MRSA is difficult to treat because it is resistant to most commonly used antibiotics. The history of MRSA is related to the advent of penicillin. Penicillin was discovered in 1925, isolated in the 19030s and commonly used by the mid-1940s. by the late 1950s there was some resistance to penicillin, so a synthetic alternative was created in the form of methicillin in 1959. MRSA was first recognized in 1961. What makes MRSA resistant? When penicillin is able to bind to the binding protein of the cell wall, disruption of the cell walla and destruction of the bacteria is possible. However, if staph aureus acquires the mecA gene, then it can alter the penicillin binding protein, making the bacteria resistant to all penicillin. Where does MRSA occur? The infection can occur in different parts of the body. Approximately 1/3 of all people carry MRSA harmlessly in the nose, throat, or in the skin. The primary way of transmitting MRSA is through direct contact with another person, object that has it, or from sneeze droplets of an infected person. 30% of staph bacteria live in the nose. Symptoms of MRSA infection •Skin infection (most common) •Maybe mild infection of the skin such as a boil or sore •May also develop to become a significant infection such as necrotizing fasciitis •It can be life-threatening if the bacteria travel into the bloodstream. Possible severe symptoms •Fever •Fatigue •Pain •Swelling of the affected area •Drainage of a surgical wound Also may cause •Pneumonia •Urinary tract infection Health professionals call it the “superbug”, since MRSA is hard to treat. MRSA may also develop resistance to vancomycin, which is supposed to be the best treatment for the MRSA bacteria. It is a constant battle when dealing with MRSA and doctors are developing new antibiotics to deal with the changing resistance of the bacteria. MRSA typically occurs in people with weak immune systems. It occurs in hospitals, nursing homes, intensive care units, surgical wounds and implanted devices. Community-associated MRSA: MRSA is seen more in the younger population even in children and may show up otherwise healthy individuals who have not received any type of hospital care (didn’t get it from the hospital). Also may be seen in athletes and military personnel. Diagnosis MRSA is diagnosed by examining a swab or culture. Internal infections may need to have a blood culture done. How is MRSA treated? •The standard treatment for skin infections is oral antibiotics given for 7-10 days. •In addition to antibiotics, drainage of the infected abscess may be done with a needle or with a small incision. •Never drain the abscess or boil on your own as this may worsen the infection. •The best treatment is proper hand washing •Treatment of severe infections may need to be done in a hospital with IV antibiotics such as vancomycin. •Treatment for patients with nasal colonization but no infection is 2%mupirocin ointment applied to nares 2-3 times a day.

The Long Goodbye: Grief and Caregiver Stress in End of Life Care
Death is a clinical issue that does not exclude any age group, but it is especially relevant in aging populations. Death can happen suddenly, after a long period of illness or at any time interval in-between. Where unexpected deaths carry with them emotional turmoil and loss, it is often the long goodbyes following years of coping with issues like dementia, complex medical illness, and cancer, that carry with them unique forms of grief and caregiver burden. Each CSA has been or will likely be in the position of comforting clients in the loss of a loved one, providing support to clients in the endurance race of end-of-life care or perhaps facing his or her own grief over the loss of a client. This presentation will focus on understanding the grief process, caregiver stress and fatigue, and relevant cultural considerations. It will also provide tools that CSAs can use to provide grief and caregiver support to clients and engage in their own self-care. This webinar is presented by Dr. Carilyn Ellis. Dr. Ellis is a psychology fellow at the Boise VA Medical Center, specializing in oncology, palliative care and primary care mental health integration. She completed her doctorate in clinical psychology at George Fox University in Newberg, OR. She loves her career and is motivated by a “profound personal belief that everyone, regardless of what he or she has done, reserves the right to an advocate.” She loves serving those who served our country, and she is honored to have the opportunity to walk with patients in both recovery and the process of acceptance, reflection and passing on.

As Americans are living longer and medical costs are rising, long term care has become a growing concern. There are a number of types of long term care, ranging from care in home by family members to full care at a nursing home. Regardless of the type of long term care, the costs can quickly add up. Long term care insurance is one way to ensure that your twilight years are paid for without breaking the bank.

Virus Hunter: Monitoring Nipah Virus in Bat Populations | HHMI BioInteractive Video
In this video we follow scientists working in Bangladesh as they test fruit bat populations to determine whether they are infected with Nipah virus—a potentially deadly virus when passed on to humans. Fruit bats (also called flying foxes) of the genus Pteropus carry a virus called Nipah which can be transmitted to humans and cause severe disease. In Bangladesh the virus causes a disease outbreak almost every year. Dr. Jon Epstein of the EcoHealth Alliance walks us through the evidence that established that bats are the natural reservoir of the virus and how scientists uncovered the route of transmission to humans. Dr. Epstein and collaborators in Bangladesh are now monitoring bat populations throughout the country for the presence for the virus to identify human populations that might be at risk of transmission.

And trying to really draw on the resources that both institutions really can have on this campus on the Lexington campus. And we often say it's one program with two sites. We can take care of children that live in the surrounding regions or in the Commonwealth of Kentucky with less travel away from home for example here on the Lexington campus. And we make the decisions that kind of determine where a patient goes based on what that patient needs. So we put the patient at the center decision. We say, OK, what does this patient need? What resources are most likely necessary? And where is that care going to be delivered in the very best way that it can be? I'm Scottie Day the physician in chief for Kentucky Children's Hospital and the interim chair of the UK Department of Pediatrics. We have a medicine connection that connects us to Cincinnati, so we're talking about every patient both sides with both specialties so that when you go through the program, you know we use a word that may be a cliche, but for us it's a reality. It's one program, two sites, meaning that when you come to this program, there will be no difference in the outcome. And the safety, the quality, and value that we measure completely transparent. You know we want to be the program for the state of Kentucky and for the Commonwealth, and we really this is part of fulfilling the mission. You know, as you hear Dr. Capilouto talk about the University for Kentucky, we want to be the Children's Hospital for Kentucky. This is not like a computer where it's a yes or no, a lot of this is judgment. And I think through this very you know-- a lot of communication and interactions, we're just trying to make the best decisions for the patients. And so far it's really worked very, very nicely. When I talk about multi-disciplinary, I'm talking about a patient, every single specialty. So if you came on ICU rounds on a post-op patient, and when you first look, you'll say oh my goodness, there's 12 people on rounds. And part of that, although it is a large group, you have an intensivist, you have a cardiologist, you have a surgeon, you have a nurse practitioner, you have a pharmacist, a nutritionist, a dietician, and you have a social worker you know. I think one of the things that we know in any population with complex medical problems is that the family needs a lot of support. In the model, even before the cardiac program here is that family is on rounds constantly. So the families always informed. So when we have our rounds in the morning if you're an inpatient, the family's there participating in rounds. Obviously, there's one to one time afterwards, but they get to hear discussions. They get to hear all of these people. And I would say that you can imagine when you have 12 people in the room, they're all not going to agree. But at the end, everyone wants the same endpoint. And so then there's a multi-listener discussion and then a decision from there. So it's very collaborative and very multi-disciplinary in terms of the approach to take care of patients with congenital heart disease. Like we said before, we're care of the family. And so you have social work services, you have child life services, you have a lot of supportive services for that whole endeavor. In terms of just the medical care, you know you have the physician groups, you have surgery, cardiology, anesthesiologists, intensive care doctors. All with their skill sets they have to kind of all kind of converge on that patient and try to provide the very best care. The goal is for those children to get the care here. And it's more about-- it's more than just about the surgery. It's really about the overall care from birth all the way through to adulthood.

Hyatt the blind feral cat, day 5 - TinyKittens.com
It is so exciting to see how much Hyatt's movement has improved now that he is learning the layout of the room! This is a huge improvement from just a few days ago. See Chapel's intake exam: https://youtu.be/61nlPajezuQ More about our rescue work: http://TinyKittens.com Our VIP livestream: http://vip.tinykittens.com Ways to help: http://TinyKittens.com/help Weight chart: https://bit.ly/2Hcj8oR UPDATE AUG 18: Ramona, Chloe and Rula's kittens (except for Aura) and the three Kinks kittens have all gone to their forever homes! UPDATE AUG 12: Cassidy's mama Sigma has joined Chapel, Coridan, Billings, Chloe, Ramona, Shelby and Sable in the Feral Recovery Ward/Kidney Disease Room. She will be getting a dental and full exam next week. UPDATE JUNE 22: Three new bottle feeder kittens have joined us from our new colony and will be sharing this stream with Chlomona and her kittens. Their colony: http://TinyKittens.com/harvie UPDATE MAY 11: Aura got a checkup today. Amazingly, after 140 tube feedings her lungs are still clear and Dr. F was blown away by how good she looks. We still have a long road ahead, but she doesn't seem to mind the tube feedings and is happy and extremely adorable otherwise. Chloe, Ramona and the other kittens all look great as well. UPDATE MAY 1: Chloe is being treated for mastitis, which is quite uncomfortable. It is helpful for kittens to nurse on her. Aura's nose is stuffy, so she has been breathing through her mouth from time to time. It may look alarming, but it is the same as when we get a cold and can't breathe through our noses. PLEASE NOTE: This is live, uncensored rescue reality. We make ourselves vulnerable by broadcasting live, 24/7, because we believe it is essential to share the largely unseen reality of cat overpopulation with the world... even when it breaks our hearts. If you have concerns about what you are seeing, the solution is to become advocates for spaying, neutering, compassion and Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). While heartbreak is inevitable in the work that we do, we hope you will take great comfort and joy witnessing the transformations of the cats and kittens saved, who would otherwise have never gotten a chance to experience the love, comfort and pampered lives they deserve. Thank you for watching! CHLOE (4/22): Brie - tortie #1, Fontina - tortie #2, Colby - lighter ginger, Cheddar - darker ginger, Aura - tortie tuxie with cleft palate RULA (4/19): Nakia - tortie RAMONA (4/17): Huggins - Yellow Collar; Ribsy - Blue Collar; Beezus - Green collar Over the bridge: Ramona's Quimby and Little Prince, Rula's Okoye and T'Challa UPDATE APRIL 22: Chloe gave birth to five beautiful kittens this morning. Four are doing well so far, but Aura has a significant cleft palate with two large holes. We have a specialist advising us, and while the prognosis is guarded, we will continue to tube feed every 2-4 hours around the clock and do everything we can to get her big enough for surgery in 16-24 weeks. Chloe Ramona are ferals raising their last litters of kittens in safety and comfort. They come from a colony of more than 230 feral cats, where 90% have been spayed/neutered thanks to Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) efforts. Our volunteers provide daily care and feeding to the cats who remain at the colony, regardless of rain, snow or face-spider season. Meet their colony friends and family: http://TinyKittens.com/happyforest UPDATE APRIL 3, 2018: A third pregnant feral named Rula has joined our feral caternity ward. She is also from the Happy Forest. UPDATE APRIL 2, 2018: Gwen "accidentally" trapped a pregnant feral cat, so we are going to see how she does sharing a room with Chloe. Chloe (ginger + white) and Ramona (pure black) are from the same colony, so it is likely they know each other. Chloe, Rula and Ramona will be part of our new project to map the DNA of her feral cat colony. http://tinykittens.com/dna Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tinykittens Twitter: http://twitter.com/tinykittensHQ Instagram: http://Instagram.com/tinykittensHQ GUIDE FOR PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE: Be polite. Please don't curse, don't ask for subscriptions, don't ask personal questions, don't spam (including roll call requests & spamming emojis). No block caps. Thanks! OUR MODS ARE VOLUNTEERS AND THEY ARE TRYING TO HELP, PLEASE TREAT THEM ACCORDINGLY! Harassing a moderator inside or outside of chat is grounds for banning and the sharing of your info to other cams for them to ban you as well. Concerning Trolls: Ignore them. That's what they hate the most. Their goal is to upset you so you yell at them. They think this is funny. Thank mew so much to everyone who is watching!

Kaiser Eliminating Services in Manteca: Patients and Nurses Fight Back
Nurses and the community they serve are frustrated by Kaiser engineering the "slow death" of Kaiser Manteca despite outcry from patients and the nurses. Many patients are being transferred to Kaiser Modesto and other facilities. The largely elderly population served by Kaiser Manteca often cannot travel to visit family members at other facilities, and have struggled to find transport to Kaiser Modesto and elsewhere. Many elderly patients say they moved to Manteca so that they would be close to a fully functioning hospital. Services being eliminated at Kaiser Manteca include: Maternity, Cardiology, Radiology, Orthopedic, Interventional Radiology, Pediatric, Gastrointestinal Services, GI Specialist services, and Medical Surgical unit closed, greatly reducing beds at Kaiser Manteca. In addition, a subacute unit unique to Kaiser Manteca houses patients on respirators. Family members have watched as the unit slowly closes down, but they have been unable to get a clear answer about the unit's future from Kaiser administrators. For many of these patients, the subacute unit has been ideal for them. But Kaiser stopped admitting patients there and seems to have stopped referring patients to this unit, despite need. Here, the community speaks out about how Kaiser is taking services away from the Manteca community. Find out more at: www.nationalnursesunited.org/HelpSaveKaiserManteca
