Culture featured very heavily in Robert Francis QC’s report earlier this year into the failures at Mid Staffordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. It was identified by him that the NHS needs to develop a common culture of caring that was made real throughout the system. It is clear that NHS organisations need to be striving to better understand their cultures of care and learning how to change them. This important conference has been created to help the NHS learn the skills and understand the mechanisms required to deliver cultural transformation.
One of the key challenges in implementing both the Francis Review and in delivering the ambitions laid out recently in the subsequent Keogh Review is around how to deliver changes on the scale required, particularly in relation to changing the culture of health. Culture is notoriously difficult, but not impossible to change.
This conference has been designed to support health and care organisations in delivery of transformation. It does this by providing an introduction to how culture operates in healthcare, an analysis of safer healthcare systems and cultures and in-depth practical exploration of what actually works when delivering transformation. This will be evidenced by the experience of Trusts that are delivering culture change on the ground.

Maria Kolotourou and a team of authors involved in the Mind, Exercise, Nutrition...Do It! (MEND) trial from University of London, University College London, and Mytime MEND gathered data from a group of obese children before they participated in the MEND childhood obesity intervention and again at 6- and 12-month follow-up intervals. The researchers measured BMI, degree of change in BMI, waist circumference, cardiovascular fitness, physical activity, sedentary behaviors, and self-esteem.
In the article “Is BMI Alone a Sufficient Outcome to Evaluate Interventions for Child Obesity?” the authors report improvements, in several of the parameters measured, independent of whether a child’s BMI decreased, increased, or remained the same.
“Good interventions aimed at helping overweight children lose weight should be equally directed at helping them to find health. This article suggests that health benefits may be seen independent of weight change, per se, and we are thus better served by evaluation strategies that encompass an array of relevant and important measures,” says David L. Katz, MD, MPH, Editor-in-Chief of Childhood Obesity and Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center.

"There really is no justification for undergoing multiple endodontic or periodontic procedures, and enduring the pain and financial burden, to save a diseased tooth," said John Minichetti, DDS, speaking for the AAID. "The days are over for saving teeth till they fall out. Preserving questionable teeth is not the best option from both oral health and cosmetic perspectives."
Losing a tooth is an emotional decision and patients must clearly understand the oral health and cosmetic implications of preserving questionable teeth. Even though patients often resist losing natural teeth, in many cases the best outcomes occur from extracting them and inserting implants, which look and function like natural teeth.
"Our patients expect restorative dental procedures to make their smiles more attractive and long- lasting. In most cases, implants deliver the best results, as the ultimate goal is to achieve an esthetic and functional restoration for years to come," said Minichetti.
Published studies have shown there is a higher failure rate of root canal procedures vs. dental implants. In some cases, root canals fail because abscesses occur, and oral surgery is required to clean out the infected area.
Minichetti noted that a recent study published in the Journal of Oral Implantology showed that single-tooth dental implants are 98.5 percent successful after seven years and there was no discernable bone loss in almost all the implant sites. First-time root canals fail 5 percent of the time, according to the American Academy of General Dentistry, and at much higher rates in repeat procedures. Further, endodontic surgical re-treatments, according to published studies, have success rates ranging from 37 to 87 percent.
Saving compromised teeth in the esthetic zone with periodontal treatments also can have unfavorable cosmetic results, according to Minichetti. "Periodontal procedures to save decaying natural teeth can require raising the gum line and exposing teeth roots to anchor a new crown," he said. "The crown needs something to hold onto, so you have to push the gum tissue up with unfavorable cosmetic impact." He noted that patients should always ask the dentists how their smiles will look if they chose to save a questionable tooth in the esthetic zone with a periodontal procedure.

What, exactly, is the role of a dental hygienist?
Dental hygienists are healthcare professionals in the dental field. They are an integral part of any dental practice and work alongside a dentist and other staff members to provide patient care. In order to practice in their field, they must undergo training that includes classroom instruction, testing, and hands-on, supervised clinical experience. After successfully completing the training at an accredited institution, hygienists receive their licenses to practice dental hygiene and are qualified to join the staff at a dental office. Hygienists must be licensed by the state in which they wish to practice.
Typically, hygienists are responsible for a range of clinical and administrative duties. Here are just a few:
Hygienists work closely with patients to promote good dental health with a focus on preventive care. Their knowledge base enables them to identify areas of concern and provide instruction about good dental hygiene and overall oral health. Hygienists may counsel patients in brushing, flossing, and oral care, as well as disease prevention and proper nutrition.
Making a preliminary assessment of a patient’s dental health is part of a dental hygienist’s job. They are trained to look for signs of disease or other abnormalities for which a patient might need treatment. The hygienists share any areas of concern with the dentist so that further assessments can be performed and a treatment plan can be developed.
Hygienists are also qualified to clean teeth, including the removal of stains, plaque, and other deposits from tooth surfaces. They may take X-rays and apply preventive treatments such as fluorides or sealants. In some states, hygienists are also licensed to administer local anesthetics and apply fillings. It is not uncommon for a hygienist to assist a dentist during procedures and to help prepare necessary tools and equipment.
When visiting my office, you will often meet with a hygienist before I see you for my assessment. Communication within our team is key, and I work with the hygienists at my office to provide the care that you receive during each office visit. Through collaborative efforts, our team is able to address all of your oral care needs.

In “‘Double Crap!’ Abuse and Harmed Identity in Fifty Shades of Grey” (http://online.liebertpub.com/doi/full/10.1089/jwh.2013.4344), Amy Bonomi, PhD, MPH, Lauren Altenburger, BS, and Nicole Walton, MSW from The Ohio State University, Columbus, conducted a systematic analysis of the novel to elucidate patterns consistent with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) definitions of interpersonal violence and associated reactions known to occur in abused women. They conclude that the female partner, Anastasia, suffers harm as a result of her relationship with Christian. Specifically, the couple’s interactions are emotionally abusive, characterized by stalking, intimidation, and isolation. Sexual violence is pervasive in the novel, including the use of alcohol to impair Anastasia’s consent and the use of intimidation. Anastasia suffers stress, altered identity, and disempowerment/entrapment.
At least 25% of women are victims of violence by intimate partners.
“We must be attuned to the way women are treated in books and movies, as such popular culture can perpetuate dangerous violence standards toward women,” says Susan G. Kornstein, MD, Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Women’s Health, Executive Director of the Virginia Commonwealth University Institute for Women’s Health, Richmond, VA, and President of the Academy of Women’s Health.

Bharat Book Bureau presents the new report, on 'Microbial Products : Technologies, Applications and Global Markets' This report is intended especially for biotechnology marketing executives, entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists and other readers with a need to know where the market for microbial technologies and products is headed over the next five years. Although the report focuses on specific technologies, it is largely non-technical in nature. That is, it is concerned less with theory and jargon than with what works and how much of it the market is likely to purchase.
This report provides:
An overview of the global market for microbes and microbial products.
Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2012, estimates for 2013, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2018.
Identifications of microbial applications in a wide range of fields, the applications and end uses that appear to have significant commercial potential in the near to mid-term, and quantitative estimates of their current and/or future sales.
Examination of market drivers, regulations, and recent technological developments.
Comprehensive company profiles (http://www.bharatbook.com/companyProfiles.asp) of major players.
A microbe is a minute living organism, such as a bacterium, yeast, or fungus. The first commercial applications of microbes date back to around 1750 BC, when the ancient Sumerians used yeast to brew beer. Microbes were used for centuries to produce bread, wine, vinegar and other common products—without anyone knowing the scientific basis for the ingredient.
The systematic study of microbes began in the 17th century with the work of scientists like Antonie Van Leeuwenhoek and Robert Hooke. However, the discipline known today as microbiology was not established until the late 19th century through the work of pioneers like Louis Pasteur, Robert Koch, Martinus Beijerinck and Sergei Winogradsky.
The technology related to microbial production of metabolites such as ethanol, lactic acid, butanol, riboflavin, etc. and enzymes such as protease, amylase and invertase were developed as early as the first few decades of the 20th century. Large-scale production of the antibiotic penicillin from Penicillium fungi was perfected during World War II and the microbial production of other antibiotics, amino acids, nucleotides, enzymes and such soon followed.
Today, genetically engineered microbes are used for the commercial production of nonmicrobial products such as insulin, interferon, human growth hormone and viral vaccines. Microbes are also used to produce energy (e.g., biodiesel and bioethanol) and to clean up environmental pollutants such as sewage and oil spills. As the active ingredient in biofertilizers and biopesticides, microbes contribute to increasing agricultural productivity, and microbes form the basis of cost-effective methods of mining and metallurgy.

"Living with migraines can be a difficult challenge. About one third of migraine sufferers experience a kind of moderate to severe handicap."said Amanda Tomb annually in basic health centres, "we are very pleased to provide amazing new treatment for those who suffer in this debilitating condition."
What makes this so revolutionary treatment, this is how it is administered to patients. Most of the techniques used to treat migraine headaches tend to be unreliable, complicated and painful. To simplify the processing and making the procedure more comfortable basic health centres employs the use of a special applicator called a tx360. The tx360 provides a minimally invasive, convenient and secure way to treat the difficult to reach nerves in the nasal cavity. Treatment tx360 was able to relieve a variety of different forms of headaches. In addition, a number of patients experienced pain relief virtually within seconds following the treatment was carried out.
Basic health centres feel that they can bring relief to many of those in our community who suffer with migraine pain.
