Behavioral medicine has now matured as a field to the point where all recognize that different populations are presented with different issues. Psychological reactions and patterns affect the health and well-being of children, as well as adults, and numerous standardized instruments for the assessment of a variety of areas of children's functioning are currently available.
The use of complementary medicine has mushroomed over the last decade. Along
with the increased popularity there’s been an increase in the number of
practitioners who practise complementary therapies either as their primary
discipline or as a ‘complement’ to their own discipline, such as nursing or medicine.
With an increasing acceptance by the public and by mainstream healthcare
professionals, practitioners of complementary medicine are being asked to provide
evidence of the effectiveness and safety of their therapies.
Control measures for pneumonia (Table 125-2) are aimed at the remediation of risk factors in general patient care (e.g., minimizing aspirationprone supine positioning) and at meticulous aseptic care of respirator equipment (e.g., disinfecting or sterilizing all inline reusable components such as nebulizers, replacing tubing circuits at intervals of 48 h—rather than more frequently—to lessen the number of breaks in the system, and teaching aseptic technique for suctioning).
Vascular device–related infection is suspected on the basis of the appearance of the catheter site or the presence of fever or bacteremia without another source in patients with vascular catheters. The diagnosis is confirmed by the recovery of the same species of microorganism from peripheral-blood cultures (preferably two cultures drawn from peripheral veins by separate venipunctures) and from semiquantitative or quantitative cultures of the vascular catheter tip.
International travel is undertaken by large, and ever increasing, numbers of people
for professional, social, recreational and humanitarian purposes. More people
travel greater distances and at greater speed than ever before, and this upward
trend looks set to continue. Travellers are thus exposed to a variety of health risks
in unfamiliar environments. Most such risks, however, can be minimized by suitable
precautions taken before, during and after travel.
The purpose of this book is to present a basic yet comprehensive
treatment of assessment methods for use by health professions educators.
While there are many excellent textbooks in psychometric theory
and its application to large-scale standardized testing programs and
many educational measurement and assessment books designed for
elementary and secondary teachers and graduate students in education
and psychology, none of these books is entirely appropriate for
the specialized educational and assessment requirements of the health
The eﬀect of HNC on air quality is measured using hourly air pollution records from monitoring
stations. Pollution levels are compared before and after the restrictions for ﬁve major pollutants
with levels in previous years acting as a comparison group to control for seasonal variation. The
analysis controls for possible confounding factors by restricting the sample to a relatively narrow
time window around the implementation of HNC and by using a regression discontinuity design.
Across pollutants and speciﬁcations there is no evidence that the program has improved air quality.
This is a book about law and public health, but not about public health law as
it has been traditionally understood. The book does not focus on statutory
measures for the containment of disease (although they are referred to when
relevant). Nor does it focus on national powers and duties and the
implementation of national policies on health harms (although these are
referred to as well).
