Assessment of readiness to initiate antiretroviral therapy by Tanya Teghtmeyer Morgenstern( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An important factor in determining a patient's adherence to antiretroviral therapy is the patient's commitment to follow the regimen. This suggests that therapy should be initiated when the patient is willing to commit to the regimen. Starting when the patient is ready may be more important than the laboratory values suggested by various guidelines. In order to increase understanding of patient readiness for antiretroviral therapy HIV infected patients were surveyed to determine the factors that influenced their decision to initiate antiretroviral therapy and to continue to adhere to therapy once started. A sample of 83 HIV infected patients who were currently on antiretroviral regimens completed a 25-item investigator-developed questionnaire. The questionnaire sought information on the length of time from learning of HIV positive status and readiness to initiate therapy. The questionnaire also addressed demographic, psychological and social factors thought to be associated with readiness for adhering to therapy
Cost benefit analysis : the "gold standard" re-examined by Nancy Lee Pomeroy( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissertation reviews the recommendations of the Panel on Cost Effectiveness in Health and Medicine (Panel) convened by the US Public Health Service in 1993 in four areas: aggregation of costs and benefits, methods of estimating resources used, definition of population impacted and perspective used in cost benefit analysis. Financial data from a clinical trial was used to test whether different approaches in each of the above four areas would change the net benefit resulting from a cost benefit analysis. Differences in aggregation of cost and benefit resulted in the same net benefit, but not the same cost/benefit ratios. Differences in resource use estimation methods, population subgroups definitions and perspectives all produced different net benefits. Difference in perspective resulted in different and often opposing decisions as to whether the proposed intervention from the clinical trial should be implemented
Social and behavioral determinants of consistent condom use among female commercial sex workers (FCSWs) in Ghana by Ahmed Adu-Oppong( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigated the social and behavioral predictors of consistent condom use among female commercial sex workers (FCSWs) in Ghana. Four hundred fifty street commercial sex workers were interviewed in Accra, Kumasi and Techiman. The level of condom education was very low (14%); however consistent condom use (all the time) with clients was relatively high (49.6%). Two hundred seventy-seven of the participants did not use condoms all the time
HIV sexual risk behavior and drug use in four racial/ethnic groups in Houston by Murad Hasan( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the role of knowing people with AIDS on sexual behavior study, 867 (58.5%) of the 1482 participants knew people with AIDS. The multivariate logistic regression analysis demonstrated association between knowing people with AIDS and two demographic characteristics including race/ethnicity and education, and several sexual risk factors including percentage of partners using condom in sexual contacts, degree of difficulty in condom use during sexual contacts and frequency of sexual intercourse with partners of same sex in past three months. Interestingly, knowing persons with AIDS was not associated with frequency of sexual intercourse with partners of opposite sex in the past three months and sexual identify. These results suggest the importance of public health programs designed to address race/ethnicity-related factors, condom use and men having sex with men (MSM)
Influence of trust on HIV diagnosis and care practices by James Leo Graham( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is a secondary data analysis from the Attitude and Beliefs and the Steps of HIV Care Study, also known as the Steps Study, a prospective observational cohort study.

Surveillance of antimicrobial resistance of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae in children with pneumonia by Munir Ahmed Abro( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sensitivity and positive predictive value of peripheral laboratories for H. influenzae were 99% and 65%, respectively. Similarly, the sensitivity and positive predictive value of peripheral laboratory tests compared to gold standard i.e. NIH laboratory, for S. pneumoniae were 99% and 54%, respectively
Planning, implementation, and evaluation of an HIV-screening program for pregnant women by Magda Leticia Garcia( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of an HIV-screening program at a private health-care institution where the providers were trained to counsel pregnant women about the HIV-antibody test according to the latest recommendations made by the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) and the Texas legislature. A before-and-after study design was selected for the study. The participants were OB/GYN nurses who attended an educational program and the patients they counseled about the HIV test. Training improved the nurses' overall knowledge about the content of the program and nurses were more likely to offer the HIV test to all pregnant women regardless of their risk of infection. Still, contrary to what was predicted, the nurses did not give more information to increase the knowledge pregnant women had about HIV infection, transmission, and available treatments. Consequently, many women were not given the chance to correctly assess their risk during the counseling session and there was no evidence that knowledge would reduce the propensity of many women to deny being at risk for HIV. On the other hand, pregnant women who received prenatal care after the implementation of the HIV-screening program were more likely to be tested than women who received prenatal care before its implementation (96% vs. 48%); in turn, the likelihood that more high-risk women would be tested for HIV also increased (94% vs. 60%). There was no evidence that mandatory testing with right of refusal would deter women from being tested for HIV. When the moment comes for a woman to make her decision, other concerns are more important to her than whether the option to be tested is mandatory or not. The majority of pregnant women indicated that their main reasons for being tested were: (a) the recommendation of their health-care provider; and (b) concern about the risks to their babies. Recommending that all pregnant women be tested regardless of their risk of infection, together with making the HIV test readily available to all women, are probably the two best ways of increasing the patients' participation in an HIV-screening program for pregnant women

A Systems Approach to the Design of a Model Undergraduate Curriculum for Health Educators by Richard M Grimes( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report presents a health education curriculum designed to train professionals to function in the combined capacity of community and school health educators. A systems approach is utilized and it is suggested that the components of the program include recruitment, guidance, education, and placement of the students. The curriculum was the first phase developed and a three tiered approach is used. The first level includes education in the communication skills, social sciences, and basic and applied sciences. Acquiring these skills enables the student to progress to the second tier of learning the Administrative, Educational, Community Development, and Socio-Bionomic skills. This knowledge then enables the student to participate in the problem solving seminars and field work which prepare him to attack the health education problems to be faced on the job. Integrated with this three-tiered approach is continuous guidance, counseling, and explanation. (RSM/Author)

Health maintenance organization environment : an empirical study of the relationship of external context and performance by Joel M Lee( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The unit of study for the research will be the health maintenance organization (HMO); an organization the accepts in exchange for a fixed, advance capitation payment, contractual responsibility to assure the delivery of a stated range of health sevices to a voluntary enrolled population. With the current Federal resurgence of interest in the Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) as a major component in the health care system, attention must be directed at maximizing development of HMOs from the limited resources available. Increased skills are needed in both Federal and private evaluation of HMO feasibility in order to prevent resource investment and in projects that will fail while concurrently identifying potentially successful projects that will not be considered using current standards
