Innovation, Demand, and Responsibility: Some Fundamental Questions About Health Systems Comment on "What Health System Challenges Should Responsible Innovation in Health Address? Insights From an International Scoping Review".
In this commentary on the exercise of Lehoux et al (this volume) I argue that in discussions on the current challenges of health systems, a better diagnosis of the health system is required. The cause of responsible innovation in health (RIH) requires a better understanding of the dynamics of health systems, in particular how innovation, demand, and responsibility are manifested. Innovation brings its own dynamic to the health system; demands are linked to historical and social developments; responsibility ...
The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program for children with disabilities has come under recent public and political scrutiny. We sought to determine if children with special health care needs (CSHCN) on Medicaid/SCHIP who receive SSI for disability were more severely impacted by their health conditions compared to other CSHCN on Medicaid/SCHIP by comparing their health service utilization, markers of quality health care, and family impacts.
The platform for priority-setting contains key ideas about the mission, goals and values of health care in Sweden. The basic idea is that health care resources should be distributed primarily according to need and effect, and secondarily according to cost-effectiveness. Nobody should be discriminated against on the basis of their gender, age, religion, ethnic origin or political views. We also need to distinguish between the health-related needs that we, as a society, have agreed should be met by publicly f...
Global health engagement missions are conducted to improve and protect the health of populations worldwide. Recognizing the strong link between health and security, the Armed Forces have increased the number of global health engagement missions over the last decade to support force health protection, medical readiness, enhance interoperability, improve host nation capacity building, combat global health threats (i.e., emerging infectious diseases), support humanitarian assistance and disaster relief efforts...
This study assessed the prevalence, general interest, and barriers to implementing global health curricula in pathology residency programs.
Kidney disease is a global public health problem, affecting over 750 million persons worldwide. The burden of kidney disease varies substantially across the world, as does its detection and treatment. In many settings, rates of kidney disease and the provision of its care are defined by socio-economic, cultural, and political factors leading to significant disparities. World Kidney Day 2019 offers an opportunity to raise awareness of kidney disease and highlight disparities in its burden and current state o...
Residents of low-income neighborhoods are exposed to relatively higher rates of crime, fewer opportunities to exercise, poorer schools, and few opportunities to eat healthy foods than residents of middle-class neighborhoods. Policies that influence neighborhood context could therefore serve as health interventions. We seek to inform the policy debate over the wisdom of spending health dollars on non-health sectors of the economy by defining the opportunity cost of doing so.
The purpose of this article is to investigate whether the neo-liberal goal of global economic competitiveness when included alongside image-inspired social goals such as liveability and environmental goals such as sustainability can lead to policies that impact positively on health and health equity. The paper presents an analysis of the content and intent of strategic planning and transport plans from two Australian state governments.
In this article, we explore the political and policy challenges involved in finding a path between incremental health reform and Medicare for All. We begin by clarifying our goals and move to examining the political barriers that any solution must contend with and overcome. Finally, we outline a path forward in which we must embrace the goals of Medicare for All, consider potential coalition dynamics before combining different goals into a single proposal, and acknowledge the important role states can play ...
Integrated care has gained popularity in recent decades and is advocated by the World Health Organization. This study examined the global progress, current foci, and the future of integrated care.
Medical geography and global health share a fundamental concern for health equity. Both fields operate within similar multiple intersecting funding, academic, health systems, and development landscapes to produce scholarship. Both reflect complex interactions and partnerships between people, communities and institutions of unequal power. The Canadian Coalition of Global Health Research Principles for Global Health Research evolved from deep concern about the absence of standards for how Canadians engage in ...
Religion and spirituality (R/S) are embedded in all aspects of life in India, a predominantly rural economy. The aim of this mixed methods study was to assess the associations between a culturally tailored intervention and preexisting religious/spiritual (R/S) practices with indicators of well-being and factors which contribute to happiness among elderly rural women from Haryana state, India. The study consisted of three groups: field experimental group (FEG; n = 24); practitioners of preexisting R/S pr...
The National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) was launched in India in 2005 to address the health needs of under-served populations in rural areas, and to support universal access to care. Despite this initiative, unaccredited informal providers (IPs) often remain patients' first point of contact, which has led to inconsistencies in treatment, and has compromised the quality of care.
The secret behind excitation dependent/independent photoluminescence of carbon nanodots (CDs) is not yet revealed completely. To address this issue, a detailed investigation on solvent polarity dependent optical properties of citric acid-urea co-derived nitrogen doped carbon nanodots (NCDs) was carried out. The interpretation on UV-visible spectral data reveals presence of H-aggregates formed through hydrogen bonding. In addition, dipole-dipole interaction mediated J-aggregates is clearly evident. The broad...
As the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) leads in designing and implementing the new Health System Impact (HSI) Fellowship program, we congratulate Sim et al for their thoughtful contribution to the nascent literature on embedded research, and for advancing our own learning about the HSI Fellowship experience. In our commentary, we describe the HSI Fellowship and its key components, discuss the factors that motivated and inspired the creation of the program, and highlight successes thus far.
We start by summarizing recent research on system justification theory, highlighting studies conducted outside the U.S. to expand the cross-national scope of the theory. Next we describe major findings in social and political psychology pertaining to religiosity, political conservatism, and various forms of system justification before turning to a specific case of entrenched inequality, namely the sectarian political system in Lebanon. We discuss the results of a nationally representative survey of 500 Leba...
Social cognition provides insight into why Americans are largely divided with strong partisan rifts. The purpose of this set of studies was to examine social cognitive forms of aggression in relation to political party affiliation and political candidate endorsement. In Study 1 ( = 1,657), all forms of aggressive social cognitions (hostile attribution, potency, retribution, victimization by powerful others, derogation of target, and social discounting) were significantly associated with one or more poli...
