Head-to-Toe Assessment Nursing | Nursing Physical Health Assessment Exam Skills
The head-to-toe assessment in nursing is an important physical health assessment that you'll be performing as a nursing student and nurse. Head-to-toe assessments allow nurses to assess the health status of patients by following a checklist of criteria. On the job, your head-to-toe nursing assessment will be performed much faster, and it may be different or more specialized to accommodate the patients' needs within your nursing specialty. This assessment represents a general assessment checklist (or cheat sheet) that you might encounter in nursing school. (Note: Always follow your instructor's requirements or your employer's assessment protocols). This nursing head-to-toe examination video guide will focus on the following areas/skills: -Vital Signs (pulse rate, respiration rate, temperature, oxygen saturation, blood pressure, pain assessment) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpGuSxDQ8js&t=103s -Cranial Nerve examination -Head assessment (hair, cranium, eyes, nose, mouth, ears, sinuses) -Neck assessment (jugular vein, thyroid, trachea, carotid) -Heart sounds assessment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H48WsyIjFs0&t=73s -Lung sounds assessment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNrcG077brQ -Abdominal assessment -Assessing extremities (arms, hands, legs, feet) -Back assessment -and more While performing your comprehensive head-to-toe assessment, you'll want to record your findings in the documentation.

"Emerging Trends in Health Care"
March 25, 2015 The 2015 Spring Presidential Lecture Series “Emerging Trends in Health Care” a lecture by Mary Ann Rosa, RN, MSN, GNP Associate Professor, Nursing Queensborough Community College Lecture Summary According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), life expectancy is increasing every year. Longevity and lifestyle are contributing to the growth of chronic illnesses. Chronic conditions have replaced acute diseases as leading causes of both morbidity and mortality. This change has economic implications for our nation. Our nation has been charged with improving quality care, while decreasing costs. This drives community health care organizations to team with hospital based institutions, to improve transitional care and continuity of care across health care settings. There are several national initiatives to deal with the increase in chronic illnesses, improve transitional care and decrease avoidable hospitalizations, which improve clinical outcomes and decrease costs. Evidence based practice and patient centered care, incorporated into disease management programs, are at the forefront of these initiatives. When used efficiently technology can decrease costs, and Telehealth has been identified as a priority to meet and improve quality patient care. Mary Ann Rosa is an Associate Professor of Nursing at Queensborough Community College and a Gerontological Nurse Practitioner. She is a consultant for North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System and serves on a task force charged with decreasing readmissions and improving health outcomes. In 2000, Professor Rosa was inducted into the Nursing Center of Excellence at North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System for her work in community health care. She developed a Heart Failure Community Disease Management Program, a Telehealth Program and co-developed a Diabetes Community Disease Management Program. Professor Rosa implemented Telehealth into the Nursing Program at Queensborough Community College and assisted two CUNY Schools of Nursing in implementing Telehealth into their Programs. Professor Rosa has published journal articles, conducted faculty workshops and presented locally and nationally on disease / health management, improving patient adherence, decreasing avoidable hospitalizations and implementing Telehealth. In 2014 she presented “Preventing Readmissions in Older Adults with Multiple Co-morbidities,” at the National Association of Home Care, and “Telehealth: An Excellent Teaching Strategy,” at the National League of Nursing Summit. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge with nursing students and being part of a team that graduates competent nurses in an evolving, technology driven, community health care system.

Tap the bell to get notified when I post a new video! -Dr. Schmidt Please email intake@thenhcaa.com to become a patient and order the products we carry. Please do not use the YouTube comments section for personal questions that are appropriately addressed in a doctor-patient private conversation. Please do not start a question with “What about..?” or generally ask “Your thoughts, please”. Please reword your question to be very specific. Thank you! My Professional FB page: https://www.facebook.com/Lacticacidosisguide/ My office FB page: https://www.facebook.com/realfoodcures/ Buy Good Fat Bars here: https://www.goodfat.bar/ You have already taken the first step to better your health by watching my video! Next, I recommend that you join our office and become a patient. We have a local and a long distance program. You will get diet modifications and supplement recommendations designed specifically for you by me or one of my fellow practitioners in our Ann Arbor, Michigan office. You have to be a patient of our office in order to purchase most supplements per our distribution agreement with Standard Process and other brands that are only sold through physicians. Becoming a Local or Long Distance Patient as outlined below allows you that access.  In order to be part of our Long Distance Patient program, you would purchase an annual membership for $200. This membership includes an initial 30 minute phone appointment with me or one of our practitioners. At that time, the practitioner will make a recommendation to you for diet modifications, supplements and the quantities that you should take. After the phone call, you are able to order supplements for a year, as needed, directly from our website and our app. We will then promptly ship the supplements out to you.  Follow up phone calls with your practitioner are $125 for a 20 minute phone or skype appointment.  If you would like to move forward and take advantage of this opportunity, please call: (734) 302-7575 or email intake@thenhcaa.com to schedule, and make the $200 payment. You can reach us by phone Monday through Saturday 9am-5pm EST. To learn more about our office and clinical practice, go to: http://thenutritionalhealingcenter.com  Since not everyone is fortunate enough to live within driving distance of Ann Arbor, Michigan, and many feel that an telephone/online consultation is not enough to meet their clinical needs, I am happy to offer you our Long Distance Patient Travel Package. The package is comprised of a series of appointments in a few days with myself or another practitioner. Not only are your health issues of concern thoroughly evaluated, but you receive a comprehensive full body evaluation, two different computerized health evaluations and a great deal of teaching and health education. You leave with a program of diet modification and supplement support that the practitioner is confident will improve your health and quality of life. This program can initiate your relationship with our clinic, and be followed up with telephone/online consultations, or it can be incorporated into your already existing program with our clinic to further enhance the program you already have in place.  The cost for the Long Distance Travel Package is $560 and includes everything mentioned above. We also have a relationship with a lovely landmark hotel conveniently located 1 mile from our office that offers a reduced nightly rate to our patients.  In the meantime, if you are truly interested in what we have to offer, please watch the top 5 most important videos for you: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLLNvew6525LFhZ-aewK4IxoHcQXgLlelw&disable_polymer=true We look forward to helping you feel your best!   DISCLAIMER: The products and the claims made about specific products on or through this site have not been evaluated by the United States Food and Drug Administration and are not approved to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease.

Scope of practice regulation and health care reform | LIVE STREAM
One reason health care costs so much is because seeing a doctor is expensive. Seeing a doctor is expensive because becoming a doctor is expensive and time-consuming, and medical school weeds out all but the most determined and skilled. But what if we could get more of our medical care from trained health care professionals who are not doctors, such as nurses and nurse practitioners? Do states’ “scope of practice” laws unnecessarily drive up health care costs and deny opportunity to nurses? Or are they needed to protect patients? Are common-sense consensus reforms available? Join AEI as we bring together economists and medical professionals to discuss this issue of regulation, safety, and economic opportunity.

Preventing Infections When Monitoring Blood Glucose
FDA and CDC are alerting healthcare professionals about the risks of transmitting hepatitis B virus (HBV) and other infectious diseases when monitoring blood glucose. In recent years, the FDA and CDC have seen an increase in reported HBV outbreaks associated with monitoring blood glucose. That is especially the case in long-term care settings, such as nursing homes and assisted living facilities, where residents often need someone to help monitor their blood glucose levels. But this risk exists in any setting where blood glucose monitoring equipment is shared, or where those performing the monitoring do not follow basic infection control practices. This includes acute care facilities, as well as clinics, health fairs, shelters, detention facilities, senior centers, schools, and camps. Reusable fingerstick lancing devices should never be used for more than one person to avoid the risk of transmitting bloodborne pathogens. But the glucose meters themselves can also pose an infection risk because it is hard to ensure that blood has been completely removed from these devices. For example, a multicenter survey published in 2005 showed that 30 percent of blood glucose meters used routinely in the surveyed hospitals had detectable blood on their surfaces. So FDA and CDC recommend that whenever possible, blood glucose meters should be used for one patient only. If that is not possible, clean and disinfect the meters after every use according to the meter's labeling to prevent carry-over of blood and infectious agents. Even when following these precautions, be sure to wash hands and change gloves between patients. It is also important to remember that these recommendations apply to other point-of-care testing devices, such as PT/INR anticoagulation meters and cholesterol testing devices.

DEA Prevents Nursing Home Patients From Getting Pain Medication, Survey Says
On the day of his Capitol Hill testimony, Ross Brickley, president of CCRx of NC, Inc. and former president of the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists, founder of the Quality Care Coalition for Patients in Pain (QCCPP), explains how and to what extent DEA rules affect patients in nursing facilities, and focuses on long-term care, and those receiving hospice services. He shares with us a haunting study conducted by the QCCPP, that shows nearly two thirds of physicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, nurses and other clinicians say that DEA procedures are resulting in delays in getting pain medication to their patients. In Ohio, where DEA has been most active, 86 percent of respondents indicated that treatment has been delayed.

T2DM: Diabetes and Indigenous Australians
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians have the fourth highest rate of type 2 diabetes in the world. It is estimated that between 10 and 30 per cent of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders have the disease. This rate is around four times higher than that for non-Indigenous Australians. Type 2 diabetes represents a major public health problem for Indigenous Australians with a much earlier age of onset and the risk of developing diabetes related complications resulting in a significant burden of disease in terms of mortality, hospitalisations and a range of financial and human costs. The death rate in Indigenous communities is believed to be up to 17 times higher than that of non-Indigenous Australians, mainly due to high levels of cardiovascular disease and kidney disease associated with diabetes. Complications include a higher risk of heart attack or stroke, eye disease, kidney disease and nerve damage, which may result in traumatic injury, infection and possible limb amputation. Chronic diseases such as diabetes and those related to it account for 59% of the difference in mortality between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, making it imperative for health services to adopt a comprehensive and culturally appropriate response to risk factors and management in primary health care. This program explores the question of how diabetes can be prevented in Indigenous communities and the issues around diet, obesity, physical activity, poor living conditions and low socioeconomic status. It focuses on a multidisciplinary approach to the detection and diagnosis of diabetes. The program also examines evidence based approaches to the management of diabetes, hypoglycaemic control and diabetes-related complications among Indigenous Australians. The program is part four in the series on type 2 diabetes and the NHMRC endorsed Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Clinical Guidelines. This program is introduced by the Hon Warren Snowdon, MP, Minister for Indigenous Health, Rural and Regional Health and Regional Services Delivery.

Network analysis to improve mental health diagnoses
Can we improve the way mental disorders are classified? At the moment, people with the same symptoms can get different diagnoses, while those with different symptoms can get the same diagnosis. And, of course, people can experience symptoms of more than one disorder at a time. Knowing how such symptoms relate to each other, and how they develop through childhood, could help to improve psychiatric classification and eventually help treat people more effectively. At the University of Liverpool, Praveetha Patalay has a Seed Award in Science, which she is using to test whether network analysis can help to unpick the complex interactions between different mental health symptoms. This is just one great idea that Wellcome supports.

Chronic Disease Management in General Practice through GPMPs and TCAs
https://practicenursecentral.com.au/chronic-disease-management Chronic disease management is a rapidly growing area in Australia and in general practice. The main vehicle to provide chronic disease care is what is know as care plans or GP Management Plans (GPMPs) and Team Care Arrangements (TCAs). These items, when used correctly, have the potential to drastically improve the care and quality of life of patients with chronic conditions. These plans also attract much higher Medicare rebates, even when bulk billed, which is why many practices have become increasingly more engaged in performing these services, which help the practice be more financially viable. What are GP Management Plans (GPMPs)? GP Management Plans provide funding for General Practice to create a plan to manage the care of a patient with a chronic condition. A GPMP should include: • A discussion with the patient around their health needs or any current health problems • Setting health goals or targets for treatment • Outlining what services will be provided by the practice or by other external providers • Outlining the responsibilities or 'actions' the patient agrees to take to help reach their health goals • Setting a date of review to get together again and track changes or progress towards their goals What are Team Care Arrangements (TCAs)? Team Care Arrangements are used for patients who have a chronic condition and needs which are so complex that there is the need for a 'multidisciplinary team'. This refers to a range of different providers from different health disciplines, usually involving 2 or more providers in addition to the usual GP, with one or more of these providers usually being an Allied Health clinician. The Medicare and 'audit' requirements around these items can be complex. We've put together a set of training courses to help demystify them and to allow you to easily navigate your way around them.

Overcoming Barriers to Medication Adherence for Chronic Diseases
Medications save lives for countless Americans. People with chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and HIV can enjoy a good quality of life when they routinely take their medicine. Poor medication adherence is linked with poor clinical outcomes. While these facts may seem obvious, a staggering one half of patients in the US stop taking their medications within one year of being prescribed. The reasons for “medication non-adherence” are varied. Affordability, a lack of understanding of the importance of the medications, and unpleasant side effects are some examples patients cite for not taking their medication as directed. Beyond increased mortality, the result costs the United States billions of dollars a year. Hospital admission rates increase for non-adherent patients with chronic illness by up to 69 percent Comments on this video are allowed in accordance with our comment policy: http://www.cdc.gov/SocialMedia/Tools/CommentPolicy.html This video can also be viewed at https://www.cdc.gov/video/phgr/2017/GR_02-21-2017.mp4

Family Nursing Research and Policy: Suzanne Feetham
Dr. Suzanne Feetham has had wide experiences in more than 50 years of nursing. She describes the importance of family nursing and the need for nurses to be able to discuss the significance of the family unit. As family nurses present concerns and use data to support outcomes, they can influence policy. Family is the context for health and the World Health Organization has a global goal for family care. To be most effective in making important changes, nurses must identify family needs and document the outcomes of family care. Family nurses need to become more adept at speaking the language of policy makers. Every family nurse needs to develop an "elevator speech," one where they can quickly describe the important roles of nurses in reaching desirable outcomes for individuals and their families.

New syringe designed to stop re-use and spread of disease
LEAD-IN: The syringe is an ubiquitous instrument in the medical field. Yet, it is one of the easiest to misuse, and can sometimes result in fatality due to re-use, especially in developing nations. To change this, a doctor from India has invented a cheap and safe syringe that is impossible to re-use. STORY-LINE: The Peanut Safe Syringe is a new variety in the world of syringes. Its inventor, Dr Baby Manoj claims that it is safer, user-friendly and less expensive than other safety syringes. The syringe has a built in protective sheath and allows the user to break the neck of it. It breaks into two parts. "The peanut safe syringe can be used as any ordinary syringe. After usage, when you press the protective sheath, the breakage mechanism makes the syringe broken into two pieces. The one piece which is bigger, which is the syringe is having no nose piece, so that no needle can be connected to it anymore and the other piece is left inside in the needle hub so that it is rendered non-reusable by any means," explains Manoj, Injections are among the most frequently used medical procedures, with an estimated 20 billion injections administered each year world-wide, according to the World Health Organisation. A large majority (more than 90%) of these injections are administered for curative purposes. Manoj says that, in 2003, the WHO recommended that all its members switch over to safety syringes - so as to prevent the illegitimate reuse of syringes in hospitals. He says that while more than 2,000 syringe models were invented by many companies, the models were either fully safe and expensive or cheap and partially-safe. After six years of research, Manoj came up with a design that he claims is fully-safe and cheap too. "I happened to invent one design which is both fully safe and can be manufactured and sold in a cheaper rate," he says. Manoj called his design "Peanut" because he says it's similar to the design of a peanut whose shell, once broken, exposes nuts that have never been seen or touched by anyone before and once opened is rendered useless. He estimates that he can manufacture and sell the Peanut syringe at 10 Rupees (16 cents US) or less. Current practice in many hospitals in India is to burn the needle tip and to dispose of the syringe by cutting it. But despite this, the risk of used syringes making it back into the market, is high. WHO says that syringes and needles are often just rinsed in a pot of tepid water between injections and that the proportion of injections given with syringes or needles re-used without sterilisation ranges from 1.5% to 69.4% in transitional and developing countries. Unsafe injections transmit blood borne pathogens, including hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In developing and transitional countries, unsafe injections are the cause for 33% of new HBV infections, 2 million new infections of HCV accounting for 42% of all HCV cases and is the cause of 2% of all new HIV infections, affecting 96,000 people annually, according to WHO. "In medical schools, in the hospitals, in In-patients (ward) and other places these practises (of safely disposing syringes) may not be generally followed because of lack of resources," says Ramdas Pisharadi, the principal of Thiruvananthapuram Medical College. He says that self-destructable syringes can ensure that the needles and syringes cannot be reused and therefore cause "no harm to either people who deal with injections or get the injections, or for that matter people who are cleaners and sweepers". The Kerala chapter of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has started IMAGE (Indian Medical Association Goes Eco-Friendly) which takes care of the safe handling of medical waste like syringes.

New clinic helps keep North Hennepin students healthy, enrolled
A new clinic to help improve access to health care for students at North Hennepin Community College is now open. It's part of a trend that supporters say meets a need of young people who have obstacles getting to, or paying for health care. Open for just five days, the new campus clinic has already been busy. There have been 40 patients, many of them in for things like colds and seasonal illnesses, others for immunizations required to attend school. It's made possible through a partnership with Fairview Clinics, and staffed by a physician's assistant or nurse practitioner who can write prescriptions. "Just this week I had a student come in, 'I don't have time to go to a doctor,'" said North Hennepin's Director of Student Life Lindsay Fort. "And I said, 'you just go upstairs.' It turns out she had mono." The idea came from the students themselves in a survey that indicated a need for health care services on campus. "They felt like the number of students who weren't going to get health care treatment because they either couldn't afford it, they couldn't pay the copays or they didn't have insurance and so this came out directly from students," said Fort. The Student Senate approved a health care fee of $1 per credit hour to completely pay for keeping the clinic open and free to use three days a week. "It's huge," said student Austriana Flowers. "I think a lot of people kind of have that feeling like, 'I don't want to go to a doctor's office' but I think that because this is right on campus many more students are comfortable with that." The college hopes it will help keep young people in college, and keep them from missing school because of illness and the cost of care. "I mean we have students that are making decisions whether they can pay their rent or their doctor bill," said Fort. "All of those things impact how they are going to perform in class. It impacts their stress level, it impacts whether they are going to focus on studying."

9 Warning Signs of Cervical Cancer You Shouldn't Ignore
9 Warning Signs of Cervical Cancer You Shouldn't Ignore Cervical cancer used to be the number one cause of death for women—that is, until Dr. George Papanicolaou introduced the Pap test in the 1940s. This simple test, which collects cells from the cervix and analyzes them under a microscope, has succeeded in reducing the death rate from cervical cancer by more than 50 percent. The good news is that regular screening and follow-up care can prevent most deaths from cervical cancer. Even better, you can get screened at no cost to you. The health care reform act covers cervical cancer screenings, part of a "well-woman visit." Because it usually takes several years for normal cells in the cervix to turn into cancer cells, it's imperative to get regular screenings, either with a Pap test or HPV test (or both). Rarely seen in women younger than 20, cervical cancer most commonly occurs in midlife. Yet, many older women don't realize the risk still exists as they age. In fact, more than 15 percent of cervical cancer cases occur in women over 65. Although the death rate has dropped considerably, women are still dying of the disease. The American Cancer Society estimated that about 12,900 women in the United States would be diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer in 2015 and about 4,100 would die from it. The human papillomavirus (HPV), which spreads through sexual contact, causes cervical cancer. Fortunately, most women's bodies can fight the HPV infection before it leads to cancer. But your risk for cervical cancer climbs if you smoke, have had many children, use birth control pills for an extended period or have HIV. Girls and young women should consider getting the HPV vaccine (given in a series of three vaccines), which can protect against several types of the virus, including some that cause cancer. The vaccine is effective only before an infection is contracted, so experts recommend that girls and boys get vaccinated before becoming sexually active. Experts advise beginning the vaccines at age 11 or 12, though it may be started younger or given later. For complete information about the vaccine, click here. Even if you've been vaccinated, you need to continue regular cervical cancer screenings, because the vaccine does not protect against all HPV cancer-causing strains. What's equally important is for you to be aware of the warning signs of cervical cancer, which may not cause any symptoms at first (when they are pre-cancers or early cancers), but later on, may affect you with pelvic pain or vaginal bleeding. Here are the signs of cervical cancer: 1.Bleeding after intercourse 2.Bleeding after menopause 3.Bleeding between periods 4.Bleeding after douching 5.Bleeding following a pelvic exam 6.Having heavier menstrual periods than usual or ones that last longer than usual 7.Unusual vaginal discharge 8.Pain during sex 9.Pelvic pain Of course, just because you have any of these symptoms doesn't necessarily mean you have cervical cancer. The symptoms could be caused by other conditions, like an infection. But it's wise to schedule an appointment with your health care professional to get checked and, if appropriate, get treated. The screening guidelines for cervical cancer can be confusing. Most major medical organizations no longer recommend routine yearly screening, but it is important to know what's appropriate for your age, personal history and risk factors. You can read all about the new guidelines here. There is also a new toolkit about cervical cancer screening that includes creative and informative materials for both NPs and women. It is in partnership with the Nurse Practitioners in Women's Health. The toolkit contains: -Posters and table tents to display in the waiting room and/or exam room -Buttons for NPs and staff to wear encouraging women to ask about cervical cancer screening -A set of information sheets for you to give women about cervical cancer and screening for it with Pap+HPV -A brochure to help NPs discuss cervical cancer screening with women and answer their questions Help us to be better SUBSCRIBE for more videos here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWEoxZsBePnM-qQ3b5Ew9g?sub_confirmation=1 More from Health Zone+: -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oevk6I1vI0 -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CKqcp2LQbM -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42cHCu7xYbg 9 Warning Signs of Cervical Cancer You Shouldn't Ignore By Health Zone + Backsound Free Royalty Licence by Vexento

What is CLINICAL PREDICTION RULE? What does CLINICAL PREDICTION RULE mean? CLINICAL PREDICTION RULE meaning - CLINICAL PREDICTION RULE definition - CLINICAL PREDICTION RULE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ A clinical prediction rule is a type of medical research study in which researchers try to identify the best combination of medical sign, symptoms, and other findings in predicting the probability of a specific disease or outcome. Physicians have difficulty in estimated risks of diseases; frequently erring towards overestimation, perhaps due to cognitive biases such as base rate fallacy in which the risk of an adverse outcome is exaggerated. In a prediction rule study, investigators identify a consecutive group of patients who are suspected of having a specific disease or outcome. The investigators then compare the value of clinical findings available to the physician versus the results of more intensive testing or the results of delayed clinical follow up. It may involve, among other things, estimation of the clinical utility of diagnostic tests. A survey of methods concluded "the majority of prediction studies in high impact journals do not follow current methodological recommendations, limiting their reliability and applicability", confirming earlier findings from the diabetic literature Few prediction rules have had the consequences of their usage by physicians quantified. When studied, the impact of providing the information alone (for example, providing the calculated probability of disease) has been negative. However, when the prediction rule is implemented as part of a critical pathway, so that a hospital or clinic has procedures and policies established for how to manage patients identified as high or low risk of disease, the prediction rule has more impact on clinical outcomes. The more intensively the prediction rule is implemented the more benefit will occur.

CVS Caremark Charitable Trust Awards 21 "Innovations in Community Health" Grants
Woonsocket, RI, April 24, 2013 /3BL Media/ - The CVSCaremark Charitable Trust, a private foundation created by CVSCaremark Corporation (NYSE: CVS) today announced the recipients of the "Innovations in Community Health" grants, which have been awarded to community health centers nationwide through a partnership with the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC). The grants will help community health centers increase access to quality health care and produce better health outcomes while reducing costs for patients and healthcare systems. The grants, which total more than $1 million, have been awarded to 21 community health centers to support the development of innovative, community-based programs and initiatives that focus on the treatment and management of chronic illnesses, specifically heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and asthma. "Today, community health centers are providing affordable health care services to more than 22 million patients in more than 9,000 locations throughout the country," said Tom Van Coverden, President and CEO of the National Association of Community Health Centers. "Through our partnership with the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust, we are able to work with the 'Innovations in Community Health' grant recipients to not only help them provide their local communities with access to innovative and high quality health care but also educate the public on how they can prevent and manage chronic diseases." More than half of Americans suffer from one or more chronic diseases every year and chronic diseases are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. A survey released today by CVS Caremark could explain why. "The CVS Caremark Chronic Disease Awareness Survey" reveals the public's misconception and understanding of chronic diseases, with the majority of respondents admitting that they are not doing as much as they could to stay healthy. Twenty-eight percent of respondents think there is little they can do to prevent most chronic diseases, yet modifiable health risk behaviors, including lack of physical activity, poor nutrition, tobacco use and excessive alcohol consumption, contribute most to the exacerbation of chronic diseases. Additional insights include: Nearly forty percent of people think what they eat has little to do with whether they get a chronic disease. Approximately thirty-two percent of people think smoking does not have an effect on chronic diseases beyond lung cancer. The survey also showed that while a majority of people agree that reducing stress, exercising, improving their diet or regularly visiting a doctor can help prevent chronic diseases, more than half of people admit they are not doing much to prevent them. Sixty percent of respondents are aware they should take steps to reduce stress in their daily lives but do not. Nearly sixty-five percent of people are aware they should exercise regularly, but they do not. More than half of people admit they do not take the steps they should to improve their diet. "Chronic diseases impact everyone and the number of people living with a chronic disease is expected to increase over the next decade. The results from the 'Chronic Disease Awareness Survey' show that many of us do not know the contributors of the most common chronic diseases," said Larry Merlo, President and CEO, CVS Caremark. "Community health centers play a critical role in both helping to educate the public on health-related issues and increasing access to high quality health care services that can help manage and prevent chronic diseases." While changes in our health care system will qualify millions of more people for health coverage, it's still a challenge for many to find quality care that could help manage -- even prevent -- many chronic diseases. "Through our partnership with NACHC, we are providing much-needed funding to support affordable community-based health care models that are producing innovative programming in the area of chronic disease management," said Eileen Howard Boone, President, CVS Caremark Charitable Trust. "The programs will use a variety of methods to help people manage their chronic disease and improve health outcomes -- including the use of tele-medicine, nurse practitioners to monitor at-risk patients and wellness circles that bring people together who are living with and working to manage the same chronic disease."

General Practice Nursing: A New Dimension in Primary Health Care
Practice nursing presents some great opportunities and viable alternatives for primary health care. Health workforce shortages have for some time caused concern in Australia. A number of studies have emphasised an underlying need to develop a more sustainable and responsive health workforce, while maintaining a commitment to high quality and safe health outcomes. In attempting to address health workforce shortages generally and medical workforce shortages in particular, the Australian Government has introduced a number of initiatives including regulatory restrictions and incentive payments. Some of these have involved programs that encourage development of the practice nurse specialisation. The term 'practice nurse' is generally applied to qualified nurses who are employed by medical general practices. Practice nursing is a relatively new area of nursing specialisation in Australia. Practice nursing in Australia traditionally has been a means through which nurses have been able to accommodate family commitments by engaging in part time employment which has not involved shift work. Consequently, there has been little acknowledgement of the special skills nurses need to work in Australian general practice and almost no formal education to prepare and support nurses in the practice nursing. For some time there was also speculation in that practice nursing could be detrimental to nurses' careers as it was thought that professional competency could possibly be diminished as a result of working in general practice. This program discusses the professional issues in practice nursing. Suitable models of practice, training and education, indemnity, and the wide variation of roles among practice nurses are also discussed. The strengths and opportunities in practice nursing are explored, as well as the barriers to the further development of practice nursing.

Best Practice: Depression in Adolescents and Young Adults
The Australian Bureau of Statistics reports that 160,000 young Australians aged between 16-24 years are living with depression. Adolescence and young adulthood is a crucial time of change where onset of depression and other mental health disorders are most commonly identified. People who experience depression often find it difficult to function day-to-day and depression has serious effects on physical and mental health. Early detection and treatment is essential in improving long-term treatment outcomes and reducing the risk of ongoing mental health disorders. Health professionals and the general public have become increasingly aware of the incidence of depression in young people. However, there are still barriers to the availability and delivery of care for adolescents and young adults with depression, anxiety and related disorders. The National Survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing reports that even when young people with depression are identified, most receive no treatment. This program discusses latest evidence and key considerations for rural practitioners when diagnosing and managing depression in adolescents and young adults, as well as identifying key resources available and exploring the experience of consumers affected by depression. The draft Clinical Practice Guidelines: Depression in Adolescents and Young Adults, funded and developed by beyondblue, is referred to during the discussion.

Millions Of Patients 'Unable To See GPs'
More than 34 million patients will fail to get an appointment with their GP this year, according to figures seen by Sky News. The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) used official NHS statistics to estimate the number of patients who will be unable to see a GP or practice nurse because surgeries are too busy. It believes patients have to look after themselves, try again at a later date, or seek medical attention at walk-in centres or A&E. And it warns some conditions may get worse as a result. Latest figures from the GP Patient Survey, which is carried out by NHS England, show one in 10 patients is unable to see a GP or practice nurse when they need to. Doctors warn of a lack of access to GPs And with general practice now offering 340 million appointments a year, the Royal College estimates that 34 million will miss out. That is a rise of 3.4 million since the survey a year earlier, which showed 9% reported they were unable to book an appointment. Dr Maureen Baker, chair of the RCGP, told Sky News care is being compromised. "People do need to see a GP as soon as possible for right action to be taken and the right treatment to be delivered," she said. "And this is a worry we have: that the lack of access to GPs might be making some problems worse." The College blames a real terms funding cut of £9bn for GP services since 2004/05, leaving surgeries unable to hire the staff they need to meet rising demand. It says GPs have already provided an extra 40 million appointments, but are now struggling. The RCGP is calling for more funding for GPs Dr Baker warned: "The unprecedented decline in funding for healthcare in the community has brought general practice to its knees. GPs can't keep doing more for less." The RCGP and the National Association for Patient Participation are urging the Government and NHS England to increase GPs' share of the budget to 11% by 2017 - up from 8.5% now. The concerns were echoed by Dr Peter Swinyard, chair of the Family Doctor Association and a GP in Swindon. "We can't give a gold-plated service to all of our patients on a share of the resources which is dropping so significantly," he said. "We have had a 25% cut in resources in general practice to look after patients who are sicker, who are more complex, and who are taking more of our time and attention. Something has got to give." By switching to a GP-callback system his practice has reduced the number of patients who need a face-to-face appointment. That has helped to deal with rising demand, but it's not a long term solution, Dr Swinyard said. It is estimated 34 million people will not get a GP appointment this year Susannah Fernandez, who brought in her two-year-old daughter Olivia because of a chest infection, said waiting times at the surgery were long. "There used to be days when you could queue outside," she said. "Waiting in the cold was not ideal. And then it would be pot luck what time you were seen. "Obviously children get bored quite quickly too, so waiting in a waiting room was not ideal." But the Department of Health dismissed the RCGP's claims. A spokesperson said: "It's complete nonsense to suggest that 34 million people won't be able to get an doctor's appointment this year. "Misleading extrapolations of partial data have been used to generate a sensationalist headline. "The GP Survey showed the vast majority of patients are satisfied with their GP and rated their experience of making an appointment as good." The Department of Health is providing £50m to help modernise general practices and allow them to stay open longer.
