This article describes a framework that covers the significant stages of conceptual development and campaign design to promote oral cancer awareness in Germany. Solution: The challenges of...

The Real Cost: Alaska's innovative media campaign to raise awareness about the direct and indirect costs of smoking to society.

Smoking incurs heavy financial costs for direct medical expenditures and lost productivity related to premature death. The Alaska Tobacco Prevention and Control Program designed a media campaign called 'The Real Cost' to raise awareness of the economic cost of smoking to all Alaskans, regardless of their smoking status. The campaign presented this information through television and radio ads between December 2012 and March 2013. The first ad, 'Dream Scene', focused on overall cost of smoking to Alaska. The ...

May Measurement Month 2018: a pragmatic global screening campaign to raise awareness of blood pressure by the International Society of Hypertension.

Raised blood pressure (BP) is the biggest contributor to mortality and disease burden worldwide and fewer than half of those with hypertension are aware of it. May Measurement Month (MMM) is a global campaign set up in 2017, to raise awareness of high BP and as a pragmatic solution to a lack of formal screening worldwide. The 2018 campaign was expanded, aiming to include more participants and countries.

Family member opioid prescriptions and opioid use disorder.

It is recognized that family members are a major source of diverted opioids. Yet it is not known how family member opioid prescriptions predict the development of an opioid use disorder (OUD).We conducted an observational study using commercial health care claims to investigate the association between a family member opioid prescription and an individual having an OUD-related claim in a large sample of patients with commercial insurance. We found that individuals had higher odds of having an OUD when a fami...

Syringe disposal among people who inject drugs before and after the implementation of a syringe services program.

Due to the increase in people who use opioids in the US, there has been a steady increase in injection drug use. Without access to safe syringe disposal locations, people who inject drugs (PWID) have few options other than improper disposal, including in public places. In 2016, Florida's first legal Syringe Services Program (SSP) was established in Miami. This study aims to compare syringe disposal practices among PWID before and after the implementation of an SSP.

Using a questionnaire survey, it also assesses public perception concerning the environmental impact of pharmaceutical waste and the current methods of disposal that are...

Mobile Teledermatology for Melanoma Detection. Assessment of Validity in the Framework of a Population-based Skin Cancer Awareness Campaign in Northern Italy.

Managing the uncertainty problems of municipal solid waste disposal.

In waste management systems, several parameters such as the rate of waste production, disposal facility, treatment cost, and their relations may be uncertain and can influence the associated optimization processes. These uncertainty problems in waste management were addressed by using various inexact programming methods. For example, fuzzy, stochastic programming, and interval programming techniques were generally used for solving the uncertainty-related waste management problems. The analysis revealed that...

Drivers of legal and illegal solid waste disposal in the Global South - The case of households in Yaoundé (Cameroon).

Managing municipal solid waste is a challenge for many policy makers, but even more so in the Global South. Regulatory instruments are often limited, available resources are scarce and illegal waste disposal is an easy opt-out. We analyze a unique dataset regarding waste disposal choices by households in Yaoundé, Cameroon, including information on illegal waste dumping. Overall, households in Yaoundé seem to act predominantly as rational, cost-minimizing agents. While social criteria also play a role, was...

Remote sensing and GIS applications for municipal waste management.

The production of municipal solid waste has increased noticeably during the recent past due to the mounting global population and fast urbanization. Furthermore, its poor management and inappropriate disposal are a global challenge since these have created environmental problems in urban ecosystems. Waste management problems are significantly stalled because of a lack of quality data. This is particularly the case in developing countries where observation infrastructure is weak. Regional waste management st...

Monitoring, prevention and treatment of side effects of long-acting neuraxial opioids for post-cesarean analgesia.

Long-acting neuraxial opioids such as morphine and diamorphine, administered via spinal or epidural routes, are staple components of a multimodal approach for postoperative analgesia following cesarean delivery. The widespread use of neuraxial opioids is due largely to their significant analgesic efficacy and favorable safety profile. The most common side effects of neuraxial opioids are pruritus, nausea and vomiting. These symptoms appear to be dose-related. The most serious complication of neuraxial opioi...

We also synthesize and critically appraise the available clinical evidence on the potential association between the use of opioids and the risk of infection. PubMed was search...

After NAS.

Mothers have used opioids for thousands of years but neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) or rather, survivors of NAS, is a modern phenomenon. Unrecognized and/or untreated opioid withdrawal was almost always fatal but with greater awareness and standardization of treatment, NAS is now an uncommon direct cause of infant death. However, opioids are now increasingly accessible and potent and the outcomes of children after the neonatal period are of great concern, especially when coupled with multiple other soci...
