We successfully built capacity of a team of public sector health care workers to provide integrated coaching in both clinical skills and QI across a province. The PCT is a feasible and effective model to spread and sustain quality activities and improve HIV care services in a decentralized rural setting.
Dissemination is the purposive distribution of information and intervention materials to a specific public health or clinical practice audience. The intent is to spread information and the associated evidence-based interventions. Research on dissemination addresses how information about health promotion and care interventions is created, packaged,

The world today is changing at a tremendous speed; advances in technology
and communication and changes in the political, economic, demographic
and social changes, all touch our lives. These changes also impact on health
care provision, and the delivery of health services. The aim of this book is to
empower would – be leaders of nursing and allied health professions to be
effective. Leadership in health care is a high priority in the UK and, at the
time of writing, is top of the list for the National Health Service Federation.
A study in Herat province concludes that the extraordinarily high number of deaths of
women during pregnancy and childbirth are largely preventable. They are a direct
consequence of the very young marriage age for women and girls (according to UNIFEM,
54% of girls under the age of 18 are married),12 poor health and nutrition, too-frequent
childbearing, and virtually no access to gynecological and obstetrical services.
There continues to be an explosion of research on issues
of pharmacologic relevance to primary eye care delivery.
New ophthalmic formulations are being developed, new
diagnostic methods introduced,and new medications and
delivery systems are available that were unheard of a
decade ago. It is important that these new concepts be
introduced to students and practitioners alike.
In February 2007, NACHC produced the document “Elderly Services In Health Centers: A Guide to
Position Your Health Center to Serve a Growing Elderly Population.” That document presented issues for
health centers to consider to meet elders’ health care needs and to take advantage of opportunities presented
by the growing elderly population.
Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death among women with gynecologic malignancies in the United States. Advanced ovarian cancers are difficult to cure with the current available chemotherapy, which has many associated systemic side effects. Doxorubicin is one such chemotherapeutic agent that can cause cardiotoxicity. Novel methods of delivering chemotherapy without significant side effects are therefore of critical need.
In parallel, women's health has become a distinct clinical discipline with a focus on disorders that are disproportionately represented in women. The integration of women's health into internal medicine and other specialties has been accompanied by novel approaches to health care delivery, including greater attention to patient education and involvement in disease prevention and medical decision-making. The IOM report recommended the term sex difference to describe biologic processes that differ between males and females and gender difference for features related to social influences. ...
The care of the critically ill has changed
radically during the past 10 years. Technological
advances have improved monitoring,
organ support, and data collection, while small
steps have been made in the development of drug
therapies. Conversely, new challenges (e.g. severe
acute respiratory syndrome [SARS], multiple
antimicrobial resistance, bioterrorism) continue
to arise and public expectations are elevated,
sometimes to an unreasonable level.
It is not only that poor people are in ill-health:
ill-health causes poverty. In Voices of the poor, a recent
World Bank study, ill-health emerged as one of the
principal reasons why households become poor and
remain poor (23). Explanations are numerous: they
include the burden of health care expenditures
incurred by caring for sick household members
(24), the lost income of the sick, and the lost income
of other household members who care for the sick.
The first meeting with a TB patient usually takes place when a patient receives the
results of diagnostic tests and is started on treatment for TB, or when the patient is
registered in the TB Patient Register (TB 03). The initial meeting with the patient
provides the opportunity to communicate essential information about TB and its
The first meeting with a patient also provides a good opportunity for the health care
worker to gather information from the patient.
Chapter aims to give an introduction into the com-plexities of healthcare delivery and to sensitizing health providers on issues outside immediate healthcare provision. The example of ‘introduction of a program for cervical cancer screening’ will be used throughout this chapter as a guide through different aspects of the health system.
Chapter 10 - Using economics to make better policy decisions. After completing this chapter, students will be able to: Describe how the Scarcity Principle applies to choices involving health, use the incentive principle to explain why health care costs have been rising so rapidly, discuss pollution taxes and effluent permits as a means to reduce the cost of improved air quality,...
Since the 1950s, significant advances in the treatment of pain have resulted in greater relief
for an increasing number of patients. However, the quality of pain care delivery in the United
States continues to fall remarkably short of the current potential for optimal care. Pain
medicine remains fragmented, and the absence of a unified organizational model of pain
medicine hinders the effective provision of an integrated, cost-effective pain care, causing
unnecessary and avoidable human suffering and societal expense.
The second edition, like the first one, is intended to provide practical guidance
to clinicians looking after patients with heart disease, or who may be at risk of
cardiac problems, in pregnancy and the puerperium. These will be hospital
physicians and cardiologists, obstetricians, general practitioners and specialist
nurses who provide direct care as well as the anaesthetists responsible for making
delivery safe and the geneticists who answer the many questions posed by
couples with a personal or family history of heart disease....
