Exploring new roles and responsibilities available to clinicians offers a path to renovate a nurse practitioner's career. The role of academician and nurse faculty broadens career horizons, presents a sense of autonomy, and offers unique opportunities to teach, participate in research, build leadership skills, and contribute to the health care delivery system at a higher level. Advance practice nurses often consider a shift to academia but are concerned about the unfamiliarity of the entire process. This ar...
Most US cities lack built environments that support physical activity, which is a key determinant of health. Making permanent changes to the physical environment to promote physical activity is not always feasible. Play Streets is a place-based intervention that is typically organized by local governments or community organizations and involves temporarily closing streets to create safe places and free opportunities for physical activity. In this descriptive study we examined 162 of Chicago's PlayStreets, h...
There is growing recognition of the vital roles that Emergency Physicians can play in public health. Accordingly, there is a need for emergency medicine trainees to have opportunities to acquire relevant public health skillsets. This article provides an example of such a possibility. It describes the experience of an emergency medicine trainee in undertaking a 6 month training rotation at a Public Health Unit. The example illustrates the feasibility and benefits of a public health rotation for interested tr...
An Advance Healthcare Directive (AHD) is a written document that contains a patient-in-care's will and preferences concerning the treatment options available to them, should they lack decision-making capacity. AHDs are completed within a broader framework known as Advance Care Planning. No study has explored the viewpoint of Spanish mental healthcare professionals towards AHDs.
Although advance care planning is known to increase patient and caregiver satisfaction, its association with health care utilization is not well understood.
Mobile technology offers unique opportunities to reach people with health promotion interventions. Breastfeeding is an important public health issue, and fathers are a key support. Milk Man is a father-focused breastfeeding app that sought to engage fathers with information and conversation about breastfeeding, with the goal to impact positively on breastfeeding duration.
This article examines the role of Black American nurses during the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic and the aftermath of World War I. The pandemic caused at least 50 million deaths worldwide and 675 000 in the United States. It occurred during a period of pervasive segregation and racial violence, in which Black Americans were routinely denied access to health, educational, and political institutions. We discuss how an unsuccessful campaign by Black leaders for admission of Black nurses to the Red Cross, the Ar...
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.
Advance care planning is the process by which patients can make decisions about their future health care should they lose capacity. Such conversations are shown to improve quality of life and reduce institutionalization. This article explores the preferences and wishes of patients in terms of advance care planning.
Clinical and research training opportunities in global health are of increasing interest to medical trainees, but little is known about such opportunities in U.S.-based pulmonary and pulmonary/critical care medicine (PCCM) fellowship programs.
Health care systems worldwide have been influenced by the globally growing trend toward a sharing economy and will likely advance with these trends in the near future. Therefore, based on peer-to-peer relationships between individuals, sharing health care works by renting medical staff, facilities, and other medical resources. Medical data innovation, integration, analysis, and sharing have the potential to dramatically change the current pattern of the health care system and to provide precise and predicti...
We aimed to estimate HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) uptake and missed opportunities for PrEP through a retrospective review of medical records of clients at high risk of HIV attending the Sydney Sexual Health Centre. Most clients (69%) were taking PrEP, and 7% of those eligible for PrEP were classified as a missed opportunity for PrEP. Although missed opportunities were uncommon, PrEP discussions should be a standard component of care for all clients at risk of HIV acquisition.

Patient-centered care (PCC) offers opportunities for African health systems to improve quality of care. Nonetheless, PCC continually faces implementation challenges. In 2015, Uganda introduced PCC as a concept in their national quality improvement guidelines. In order to investigate whether and how this is implemented in practice, this study aims to identify relevant stakeholders' views on the current quality of primary health care services and their understanding of PCC. This is an important step in unders...

Estimates indicate that approximately 20% of adults 65 and older have one or more mental health or substance use conditions. As caregivers, mental health nurses are natural advocates for older patients facing mental health challenges in the clinical environment. Substantive opportunities exist to shape older adult mental health and well-being through advocacy. Nurse advocates can be effective influencers helping address key challenges at the intersection of mental health, aging, and policy. Resource barrier...
To summarise the state of the art during the year 2018 in consumer health informatics and education, with a special emphasis on the special topic of the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA) Yearbook for 2019: "Artificial intelligence in health: new opportunities, challenges, and practical implications".
The role of gut microbes in health and disease has often been surmised from stool, which is easily sampled and rich in microbial diversity, density, and abundance. Microbial analyses of stool have been accepted as measures to determine the relationship of gut microbiomes with host health and disease, based on the belief that it represents all microbial populations throughout the gut. However, functional heterogeneity of each gastrointestinal tract (GIT) segment gives rise to regional differences in gut micr...
There has been renewed concern about the state of public health in Canada, with several recent articles in this journal suggesting that the discipline of public health is under threat and that there has been a significant erosion of its core infrastructure. We strongly agree with the need for a well-resourced formal public health system and preservation of capacity to carry out core public health functions, while also positing a complementary narrative that emphasizes the possibility for a broad notion of p...
