Style Guide: An Interdisciplinary Communication Tool To Support The Process Of Generating Tailored Infographics From Electronic Health Data Using Entice3, Adriana Arcia, Mark Velez, Suzanne Bakken

eGEMs (Generating Evidence & Methods to improve patient outcomes)

Purpose: In this case study we describe key features of the structured communication tool—a style guide—used to support interdisciplinary collaboration, and we propose the use of such a tool for research teams engaged in similar projects. We employ tailored infographics to present patient reported outcome data from a community health survey back, in a comprehensible and actionable manner, to the individuals who provided it. The style guide was developed to bridge the semantic gap between the domain and programming experts engaged in this effort.

Innovation: The style guide supports the communication of complex design specifications in a highly ...

Connecting Gender, Race, Class, And Immigration Status To Disease Management, Marie-Anne S. Rosemberg Phd, Mn, Rn, Jenny Hsin-Chun Tsai Phd, Arnp, Pmhcns-Bc

Journal of Health Disparities Research and Practice

Objective: Chronic diseases are the leading causes of death in the United States. Chronic disease management occurs within all aspects of an individual’s life, including the workplace. Though the social constructs of gender, race, class, and immigration status within the workplace have been considered, their connection to disease management among workers has been less explicitly explored. Using a sample of immigrant hotel housekeepers, we explored the connections between these four social constructs and hypertension management.

Methods: This qualitative research study was guided by critical ethnography methodology. Twenty-seven hotel room cleaners and four housemen were recruited (N = 31) and invited ...

National Skills Training Centre In India, Manju Chhugani, Ashin Merlin

Journal of Asian Midwives (JAM)

A key determinant which can ensure the quality of healthcare in public health institutions is the skill set of the individuals providing service delivery. Health professionals possess the skills and the expertise in this respect; however, they fail to utilize these optimally. This is because there is a disconnect between their knowledge and practice, it is now imperative tobridge the gap between basic education and clinical practice. The creation of skill labs is one way in which this gap can be addressed. Though India has seen a decline inboth the Maternal and Infant Mortality Rates, significant changes are yet to ...

Factors Affecting The Midwifery-Led Service Provider Model In Pakistan, Surriya Shahnaz, Rafat Jan, Arusa Lakhani, Rozina Sikandar

Journal of Asian Midwives (JAM)

Background

Pakistan has a high rate of maternal and infant mortality, and a shortage of skilled birth attendants (SBAs). Many efforts have been made through the health sector and the international agencies to resolve the problem of both a high Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) and Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR), but the desired outcomes have not been achieved so far. Literature shows that midwifery plays a significant role in the reduction of MMR and IMR in other parts of the world, and the implementation of a Midwifery-led Service Provider Model could help reduce these rates in Pakistan.

Is “Empowerment” A Trickle-Down Effect Of The Afghanistan Midwifery Education Program?, Fatima Gohar, Pashtoon A. Zyaee, Sabera Turkmani

Journal of Asian Midwives (JAM)

Introduction
The patriarchal Afghan society has thousands of years of history. For most parts it has been governed by its tribal systems. The society has systematically evolved with its thousands of years old tradition, which has resulted in the subjugation of women. Although it is widely assumed that the midwifery education program (MEP) has contributed to female empowerment, no formal investigation has been carried out that explores the actual impact of MEP on the status of women midwifery graduates. Therefore, this study systematically explores the trickle down effects of MEP on women’s empowerment.

Methodology

Design: Exploratory qualitative study

Evidence Based Falls Management Program In The Nursing Home, Deloris Jacobs

Graduate Theses, Dissertations, and Capstones

The cost of fall injuries for both nursing homes and patients can be staggering.

Patients injured in falls are at risk of increased financial costs for care in the nursing home as well as a lower quality of life. They are likely to incur co-pay or coinsurance costs for care by physicians and other professional services, and costs for rehabilitative services, out of pocket expenses, medical equipment, prescription drugs, and ...
