  • Vulnerability
    • Abstract: Here in Nashville, summer starts to end when the temperatures hover in the nineties, sometimes higher. The weeds dry out and seeds blow everywhere. Heat threatens most living things, and will for a while still, but then it fitfully abates, although not as much as in earlier years with the gentler climate we lived in then. Now tornadoes and floods loom more frequently in spring and summer, and in winter harsh ice storms and hail batter this part of the country, and do so less predictably and more frequently than they did in past years. In other parts of the country, drought, hurricanes, and blizzards dramatically punctuate long passages of oddly warm times. In Dylan's song to his lost love, he asks someone to ... Read More

  • New York State Medicaid Reforms: Opportunities and Challenges to Improve
           the Health of Those with Serious Mental Illness
    • Abstract: In New York State (NYS) in 2012, over 20% of individuals with serious mental illness (SMI) discharged from inpatient psychiatric care were re-admitted within 30 days, and fewer than 40% attended follow-up outpatient care.1 As in many states, health care costs for people with SMI represent a large portion of total Medicaid expenditures. In 2013, NYS spent $54 billion on its five million Medicaid members, making it the second costliest Medicaid program in the nation.2 In 2003, NYS Medicaid spent twice the per capita costs on individuals with behavioral health conditions compared with those without these conditions.3 Strikingly, 74% of that population's expenditures was for general medical (non-behavioral health) ...

  • Separate or United: The Safety Net in the Era of Health Care Integration
    • Abstract: The Affordable Care Act (ACA) fueled health care transformation, expanding coverage through Medicaid and marketplace subsidized premiums, moving from volume- to value-based payment and a broadening focus on population health.1,2,3 In response, the private sector is reconfiguring, creating integrated systems with a broader care continuum, prominently through coordinated care initiatives and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).1 In contrast to the private sector, the major safety-net (SN) providers such as public hospital systems (PHS), community health centers (CHC or FQHC) and local public health departments (LPHD) who serve a critical role in health care for millions of individuals, including the growing ...

  • Reconciling America's Research Response to Binge Drinking among American
           Indians and Alaskan Natives
    • Abstract: In December, 2015 the Canadian government committed to 94 Calls to Action released by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC). The TRC was set up in 2009 by the federal government to inform Canadians "about the truth of survivors, families, communities and anyone personally affected by the [Indian Residential School] experience."1[n.p.] The Calls to Action are aimed to "redress the legacy of residential schools and advance the process of Canadian reconciliation."2[p.1] According to Justice Murray Sinclair, Chair of the TRC, in response to an appalling history of colonial practices, reconciliation is necessary to move forward and is "about forging and maintaining respectful relationships. There are ... Read More

  • The Importance of Recognizing Social Vulnerability in Patients during
           Clinical Practice
    • Abstract: This paper arises from my experiences as a family physician volunteering at a free clinic in Dunedin, New Zealand, serving a socioeconomically deprived, urban patient population. In the same month that I left the free clinic to work fulltime on my PhD, an adolescent patient who had been orphaned, abused in foster care, and become embroiled in criminal gangs and drug abuse committed suicide. My first reactions were, "How were we blindsided by this'" and "How can we stop this from happening again'" This brutal narrative was also a reminder that we were not just providing free primary care services to patients who were merely poor. Lowincome status is by itself an insufficient identifier of the free clinic's target ... Read More

  • Like Pulling Teeth: Expanding the Oral Health Workforce by Training
           Physicians in Dental Extractions
    • Abstract: In spite of the importance of oral health to overall well-being, many Americans, especially low-income Americans, struggle to obtain dental care.1 Due to geographic barriers, inability to afford care, or lack of dentists accepting public insurance, patients with dental pain regularly seek care in primary care offices and hospital emergency departments. Dental pain accounts for one percent of all emergency department (ED) visits—more than 1.3 million each year—and up to 5% of adult primary care visits concern oral problems.2,3 Definitive dental treatment is almost never available in either location. At best, patients depart with prescriptions for antibiotics and analgesics: palliative measures, not treatment, for ... Read More

  • Patient Navigation Program for Colorectal Cancer Screening in Chinese
           Americans at an Urban Community Health Center: Lessons Learned
    • Abstract: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and third leading cause of deaths due to cancer in New York City (NYC).1 Timely CRC screening allows for the early detection of disease, timely treatment and a five-year survival rate of 90%.2 The mortality rate from CRC has been decreasing for the last 20 years largely due to the availability of screenings, which allowed for early detection and treatment of CRC.2 Although screening rates in NYC had increased overall from 2003 to 2013, Asian New Yorkers were still less likely to get timely colonoscopies (67%) than all other racial and ethnic groups (69%) in 2013.3 Furthermore, cancer is the leading cause of death among Asian and Pacific Islanders ...

When I ask what is wrong with me, I usually get, 'Wait, the doctor will come back to see you.' Then the next thing I know, I am discharged and told the doctor has left or is too busy."The doctors seem to think my intentions are to overuse services and burden them. Their dismissive attitudes leave me feeling like an alien devoid of any ability to make human contact. When I express my need to be respected, it has only fueled the fire. There is never any pretense of caring for me in this hospital. All the appropriate words like 'patient-centered care' and 'individualized-treatment' waft like flimsy ... Read More

  • Head Trauma in Jail and Implications for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy
           in the United States: Case Report and Results of Injury Surveillance in
           NYC Jails

We have previously reported that overall rates of traumatic brain injury in the New York City (NYC) jail system are more than 3,100 per 100,00 person-years.1 Because there is no standard or mandated reporting of injuries in jails and prisons (except for those resulting in death or those relating to sexual assault), the national burden of head trauma during incarceration is unclear. Unlike community settings, where head trauma is commonly associated with sports-related injuries,2,3 our clinical experience in the NYC jail system links these health outcomes to violence. Education efforts in the NYC jail system and nationally have sought to inform ... Read More

Thirty-six out of 46 African nations have a critical shortage of HRH, with only 0.8 physicians, nurses, and midwives per 1,000 population, well below the minimum acceptable density of 2.3 per 1,000 population with 10 of these African countries having less than half the regional average, of only 0.16 to 0.47.1 Over 800,000 trained health workers are needed to close these gaps.2 Adequate numbers with a mix of skilled, highly motivated, and equitably distributed workforce is critical for effective delivery of health ...

Of the 15.9 million people living in Malawi, 84% reside in rural areas.1 With total health expenditure of 9.2% of the GDP, Malawi has 0.2 physicians per 10,000 people.1,2 In Malawi, the formal health care sector provides the majority of health care services; it comprises three levels of care. The primary level consists of community-based programs and local health posts, the secondary level of private or government-owned district hospitals, and the tertiary level of central district hospitals. A referral system connects all three levels.3 Excluding the private-owned district ... Read More

People in developed countries enjoy better health than those in the least developed countries, and within countries, individuals with lower education, income, and occupational status are ill more often and have less access to health services than their counterparts.1–14 Socioeconomic status (SES) differences are associated with a wide range of health problems, including low birth weight, higher mortality rate, and morbidity from almost every disease.15–24 Despite decades-old recognition of this fundamental association, health inequalities remain widespread around the globe. The World Health Organization ... Read More

  • Vaginal Infections in Haitian Immigrant Women Living in Miami, Florida
    • Abstract: Haitian women living in Miami, Florida experience rates of cervical cancer that are over four times higher than the general Florida population. Researchers and clinicians have identified lack of access to routine cervical cancer screening as the primary determinant of this disparity.1 However, other factors may similarly contribute to the development of cervical cancer in this population. Human Papilloma Virus, or HPV, is a sexually-transmitted virus that has been found to be the primary cause of most cervical cancers. Prior work has shown that microbial vaginal infections such as vulvovaginal candidiasis (VC), trichomonas vaginalis (TV) and bacterial vaginosis (BV) are associated with increased risk of HPV.2–4 We ...

Referred to as a "fundamental building block for a high-value health care system,"1[p.606] PCMH seeks to deliver personalization in care while prioritizing and integrating care to improve not only the health of individuals but also that of families, communities, and ultimately populations.1 Primary care and patient-centered care are among the key underlying principles of the PCMH model. While primary care promises comprehensive, coordinated care across multiple settings and clinicians, patient-centered care focuses on tailoring care to patient preferences and needs with shared decision making between the provider and ...

Annually as many as 20% of youth in the U.S. are affected by MH problems that meet criteria for a mental disorder.1,2,3 Failure to address MH problems that emerge in adolescence, even symptoms that do not meet the criteria for a diagnosable disorder, can have severe consequences, including poor relationships, substance use, truancy, school failure, justice system involvement, and suicide.4,5,6 However most adolescents in need of care never receive it.7,8Pathways to engaging youth in MH services begin with the identification of a ...
