  • This report is being published at a time of great opportunity in health care. Legislation passed in March 2010 will provide insurance coverage for 32 million more Americans. The implications of this new demand on the nation’s health care system are significant. How can the system accommodate the increased demand while improving the quality of health care services provided to the American public? Nursing represents the largest sector of the health professions, with more than 3 million registered nurses in the United States.

  • A silent killer maneuvers just below the surface of almost all the health issues that will lead to death and disease in the 21st century. The U.S. population faces well-recognized health risks, including chronic diseases, environmental degradation, and natural and manmade disasters, but the silent killer is less diagnosed and remains essentially untreated. The silent killer is low health literacy: the reality that almost half of adults in the United States, over 90 million people, struggle to find, understand, and correctly use health information....

  • The first report of a quantitative risk evaluation applied to health goes back to Laplace, in the late eighteenth century, which calculated the probability of death among people with and without vaccination for smallpox. With Pasteur's studies in the late nineteenth century, it was possible to use the tools of statistics to evaluate the factors related to communicable diseases, giving birth to the concept of epidemiological risk (Covello; Munpower, 1985, Czeresnia, 2004).

  • There was a need to bring this information together in a single volume, as much of the key recent developments have been dispersed throughout the biomedical literature, largely in specialized journals.

  • The global environment is changing rapidly, partly in response to economic globalization. These global changes are clearly evident at the local level, even in the quality of air that people breath. In some high income countries air quality has been improving, due to a combination of de-industrialization, improved technologies and environmental regulation. However, advances in the science of epidemiology suggest that even air that would until recently have been considered ‘clean’ may contain pollutants that are hazardous to people’s health.

  • The creative and innovative ethic of American medicine is legend and has contributed fundamentally to the breadth, depth, and pace of advances in our capacity for diagnosis and treatment of disease and injury. Indeed, the number of new pharmaceuticals, biologics, medical devices, and healthcare services introduced into American healthcare settings and marketplaces substantially exceeds the capacity to know the circumstances under which a particular intervention is best applied.

  • Women’s health is inextricably linked to the context in which they live their lives. Only within the past few decades have researchers and clinicians acknowledged the importance of women’s lived experiences for their well-being. The feminist movement of the 1960s and 1970s prompted critical analysis of women’s health and its relationship to society, and of women’s health care options.

  • Most health care spending is for care provided by hospitals and physicians. Health care spending encompasses a wide variety of health-related goods and services, from hospital care and prescription drugs to dental services and medical equipment purchases. Figure 7 illustrates spending on health by type of expense in 2010. Spending on hospital care and physician services ($1,329.5 billion combined) makes up just over one-half of health care expenditures (51%). While spending on prescription drugs ($259.

  • Conventional approaches to health in poor countries focus on disease–specific interventions and their cost effectiveness, implemented via the path of least resistance with a strong emphasis on short term results. The upshot is that sys- temic problems which underlie poor health, failing health systems, and health inequity are circumvented. Long–term, sustainable strategies are rarely devel- oped or deployed. The crisis may change its spots, expressing itself in different diseases, populations or geographic areas, but it essentially continues unabated.

  • The greatest limitation of traditional epidemiological indicators is their inability to reflect the “capacity of an individual to perform tasks and activities”13. Self-perceived measures convey more information about the way a certain disease is affecting the individual’s daily routine and the population in general than the measurements collected from a clinical environment5. Clinical indicators are important for the assessment of oral health and treatment needs; nevertheless, their limitations must be considered11.

Significant advances in research and the influence of a growing consumer advocacy movement are forcefully shaping a brave new world in community mental health. At the same time, tremendous suffering persists for those afflicted by serious mental illness.

  • The impact of perinatal mental health problems on infants has been studied in HIC, mostly in terms of neuro-psycho-behavioural variables, which are likely to apply in LMICs as well. Infants of depressed mothers show dysregulations affecting their behavior and physiology, thought to be derived from a prenatal exposure to a biochemical imbalance in their mothers (48, 70). Newborns of depressed mothers also have neurotransmitter imbalances (e.g., higher cortisol and lower dopamine and serotonin levels), are described as physiologically less mature (e.g.

  • Professional ethics is now acknowledged as a field of study in its own right. Much of its recent development has resulted from rethinking traditional medical ethics in the light of new moral problems arising out of advances in medical science and technology. Applied philosophers, ethicists and lawyers have devoted considerable energy to exploring the dilemmas emerging from modern health care practices and their effects on the practitioner-relationship.
