  • Issue 110 - Sharing the PIE with consumers: a tool to support consumer
           participation and collaboration in evaluations
    • Abstract: Hider, Kim; Farjou, Dina
      Numerous drivers encourage, support and - in some instances - mandate consumer, carer and community participation within Australian health services. Some of these are more effective than others. Similarly, many factors influence the willingness of health services to monitor and evaluate their performance and quality of care. Whilst both are highly valued elements to improving health outcomes and providing quality health care, they are usually considered separately.

  • Issue 110 - Executive conversation rounds - an innovative response to
           patient experience
    • Abstract: Hillis, Elaine; Edis, Karen
      Peninsula Health recognises the importance of listening to patients about their experience of health care. Through implementation of a patient and family centred approach that recognises the importance of partnering with consumers, listens to individual patient experience and includes patients and families as key members of the health care team, we are able to shape health care to better meet the needs of patients and families.

  • Issue 110 - Where is the 'patient' in 'patient centred care'?
    • Abstract: Dawson, Maria Teresa; Bruce, Nicola
      This article reviews a series of reports and articles about patient centred care and argues that 'the patient' is lost amidst current policy discussions and practical advice to adopt a 'patient centred' approach to health care. In early 2003, a group of experts in the US published a series of papers in the Joint Commission Journal on Quality and Safety under the banner of Microsystems in Health Care; the series outlined the difference between 'planning patient centred services' and 'planning patient centred care'. The distinction is that when planning patient centred services, the focus is on the inner workings, architecture and flow of the system providing the services, while when planning patient centred care the focus must shift to understanding and responding to the individual needs of patients and their families. We argue that most recommendations on patient centred care concentrate more on quality improvements to health service systems than on the needs of patients and their families. We recommend that to plan for patient centred care, health services should work to enable patients and their families to be involved in decision-making, not only about their own health and treatment but also in service planning, design, delivery and evaluation through participation, collaboration and partnerships.

  • Issue 110 - In the patient's shoes: The eastern health patient experience
           of care program
    • Abstract: Hendry, Tanya; Gatehouse, Jo
      Eastern Health is highly committed to working in partnership with consumers, carers and the community to improve the quality, safety and experience of health care. 'A great patient experience' is one of five strategic priorities in the Eastern Health Strategic Plan 2010 - 2015. This priority commits Eastern Health to increase the organisation's capability and capacity to seek, respond to and better understand patient and carer feedback.

  • Issue 110 - Patient safety: Improving the Victorian inter-hospital patient
           transfer system - a consumer's perspective
    • Abstract: Crellin, Wallace
      Imagine that you live in a country area and you have been admitted to the local rural hospital. After some examination and discussion, your doctor suggests that for you to get the best possible attention for your complaint, you should be moved to a bigger hospital where there is specialist equipment and staff who can give you the treatment you need. This is called an inter-hospital patient transfer and is a very common occurrence. Because of this, it's an important system for consumers to understand - and to help design and improve.

  • Issue 110 - Patient-centred walk arounds at Austin health: A consumer
           perspective on the project
    • Abstract: Oswin, Kathleen
      I began my involvement in health consumer issues rather recently when I became a consumer representative on the Austin Health Board Safety and Quality Committee (AHBSQC) in September 2011. This took me on a very steep learning curve in all the fascinating and challenging aspects of consumer health representation, not the least of which was trying to come to terms with the complexity of the huge, triple campus organisation that is Austin Health. I have been very grateful to the members of the AHBSQC, staff members and other consumer representatives at Austin Health for their generous welcome and their willingness to share their knowledge and time.

  • Issue 110 - Unpicking perverse incentives: At the front of social change
    • Abstract: Fisher, Frank
      In, 'There's more to weight (obesity) than measures' The Age's Amanda Dunn makes the point that 'losing kilos is not just a matter of "energy in" and "energy out" but has to do with the way we construct our lives' (1.1.2012). In a 50-year engagement with chronic illness and the consumer health management movement, the types of changes I struggle for are exactly of this kind. Here is a neat little example.

  • Issue 110 - The recovery hub: Hope, inspire, achieve
    • Abstract: Delphin, Alison
      The Recovery Hub is an innovative website and strength-focused resource enabling people to make informed decisions about their health, wellbeing and journey of recovery. It was developed by Wodonga Community Mental Health Service and is a health promotion tool. The website began as a resource to list services and information on recovery-oriented practice, but with community and service user feedback it was further developed to meet the needs of people living with mental health distress.

           health - a year 12 education and assessment program
    • Abstract: Willder, Stuart
      Young, free and without a health care in the world. That's the image we remember, if we can, of life when we were in secondary school! Health was a subject, not really a concern. Diabetes was just something you knew nana had and you bought her diet chocolate for her birthday. All you knew about your grandad's health was that he went the toilet a lot. (Pretty embarrassing really).

    • Abstract: Bulman, Jack
      Everyone needs to have a space where they can feel safe and have a yarn. The concept of safe friendly spaces is not a new; it has been around for generations and generations among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Mibbinbah, which means 'men's place' from the Yugambeh language of South Eastern Queensland, is a part of this cultural heritage. It is an Indigenous male health promotion charity, which follows the lead of such inspirational Aboriginal men such as Dr Mick Adams, Dr Mark Wenitong and Frank Spry.

    • Abstract: Patton, R; Geary, M; Watson, J
      This is the story of the development and implementation of the Banyule Men's Shed Program ('the Shed'). This story is told by describing aspects of the journey and some of the experiences of the people involved. It describes how one health service changed its approach to become more responsive to the issues faced by local men. It also demonstrates how men can be more involved in decision making processes about the programs that are offered to them and help to provide those programs.

    • Abstract: Bettany, Keith; Hayes, Rick
      Not everyone gets a first chance, much less a second, to tell their story. This is especially true of many who served in the Armed Forces during time of war. Those who were prisoners of war often felt that no one would believe them. So, we have cultural images and social memories of returned soldiers sitting in sheds at the end of gardens quietly fading away.

  • Issue 109 - Being all male
    • Abstract: Willder, Stuart
      Working in the area of men's and boy's health is both rewarding and challenging. Having a clinical background and interest in prostate cancer, I have seen that the field of men's health is ever changing. It requires new ideas, energy and the will to engage with men in all areas of the community. Whether informing grade 6 boys about puberty, teaching nursing graduates how to engage with men, or educating men on a mine site as to why they should look after their health, the opportunities for men's health education are endless.

    • Abstract: Klineberg, Emily; Steinbeck, Kate
      This article describes the Marie Bashir Clinical Research Program in Adolescent Health, which was announced by the New South Wales Minister for Health in 2010. This prestigious and innovative research program is attached to the Medical Foundation Chair of Adolescent Medicine at the University of Sydney; the only university-based chair in adolescent medicine in Australia. The Chair is physically situated at The Children's Hospital at Westmead, and is charged with enhancing and developing research in adolescent health. This is a program with many challenges and many opportunities for novel and productive research collaborations to improve the health and wellbeing of adolescents.

      This article described a trial program in the Illawarra, NSW, Australia, encouraging people with a mental illness to become more active. The program has succeeded in getting mental health consumers and their carers regularly involved in sports such as ten-pin bowling, dancing, swimming, bushwalking, and going to the gym. This has increased their confidence and self-esteem.

      The aim of this paper is to identify the prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) (refers to a group of characteristics that include obesity, high blood pressure, elevated blood sugar levels, and high triglycerides, which are fat-like substances in the blood) among an in-patient mental health rehabilitation population in a regional hospital in NSW, Australia, and to provide a review of literature for screening and management of MetS.

  • Issue 108 - The nature and course of depression related to acute coronary
    • Abstract: Hyett, Matthew; Rourke, Poppy; Vollmer-Conna, Ute; Parker, Gordon
      Depression is a common mental condition occurring in around 6.6% of the general population (Kessler et al., 2003) at any one time. The rates of depression among people who are ill are higher (Evans et al., 2005). For example, rates of depression in those with coronary artery disease (disease that affects the blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart) range from 15%-27% (Rudisch and Nemeroff, 2003). While it might be expected that those with heart conditions may experience a degree of emotional distress and (sometimes) clinical depression, it appears that depression in the context of heart conditions has many potential causes and may even lead to future heart problems. The frequent overlap of depression and heart conditions has led to research investigating potential sources of this complex interaction and potential risks for those affected. This article will report on developments in research in this area and outline a new study, funded by the NSW Department of Health, currently being undertaken in a Sydney public hospital.

  • Issue 108 - Bridging the gap between physical and mental health
    • Abstract: Panesar, Narinder Pal; Valachova, Iveta; Oldham, James; Lynch, Warren; Watson, Sarah
      Consumers with mental disorders have an increased risk of premature death (Harris and Barraclough, 1998) and higher rates of morbidity (Brown, 1997; Newman and Bland, 1991). Mental health practitioners have an essential role in reducing the burden of disease and premature deaths by treating psychiatric problems and identifying risks to physical health. An untreated mental health problem will decrease a consumer's capacity to seek physical health care and limit their ability to follow medical advice. Over the last fifty years, specialisation in psychiatry has led to mental health specialists focussing on consumers' mental health problems rather than their physical health, which has been delegated to other practitioners. It has become uncommon for psychiatrists to perform physical examinations; however, these are essential for early detection of illness. It is important to remember that psychiatric presentations could be caused by an underlying physical illness. Consumers who are mentally disturbed may be unable to give a clear account of their symptoms, even in the presence of a life threatening disorder (Kampmeier, 1977). There is an increasing expectation that mental health professionals are responsible for the detection of physical health through physical examination of new psychiatric admissions as well as monitoring the physical health of psychiatric inpatients (Mitchell, and Malone, 2006; Garden, 2005; Greening,, 2005; Muir-Cochrane, 2006). This paper illustrates the impact of physical findings in three clinical situations.

  • Issue 108 - New moves: Targeting physical and mental well-being in people
           with mental illness
    • Abstract: Gill, Katherine
      The New Moves program, developed by The Schizophrenia Fellowship of NSW, specifically targets the physical health and recovery needs of people with a mental illness. New Moves engages participants in exercise activities that target cardiovascular fitness and strength training. Activities are performed in a group environment with peer support, which encourages social interaction and interpersonal skill development. By participating in the preparation of healthy meals and a variety of educational discussion topics, participants learn skills to manage their physical health and long term recovery better. Program evaluation has found significant benefits to physical health, social well-being and quality of life.

  • Issue 108 - Developing state policy and guidelines to improve the physical
           health of people with mental health disorders
    • Abstract: McKay, Roderick
      There has been increasing recognition of the need for action regarding the poor physical health of people with mental illness, and in particular the physical health of consumers of mental health services with 'Serious Mental Illness'. Despite this recognition, criticisms continue about a lack of action to address these issues (The Lancet, 2011). This paper explores the policy response to these concerns within New South Wales (NSW), including drivers for action, stakeholders involved, processes followed, and challenges of implementation. It will also outline key components of the policy response.

      "You ain't checking my teeth, but I want to see a counsellor" were the first words said to the oral health team through Julia's (fictional name) tightly clasped fingers as she held them over her mouth. Although a small step for the oral health team, it was a large step for Julia.

  • Issue 108 - Health inequalities between mental health consumers and the
           general population
    • Abstract: Kroschel, Jon
      Mental health consumers who come into contact with statutory mental health services who use seclusion, forced treatment and Community Treatment Orders (CTOs) find that this can and does diminish a person's 'help-seeking behaviour' and 'trust in the medical profession', to such an extent that people with known (to themselves) medical conditions will not seek treatment for these diseases. This statutory mental health treatment also diminishes trust in all other human beings, leading to isolation and disconnection from community life.

  • Issue 108 - Being smart is not enough
    • Abstract: Boughen, Roxanne
      I have an innate belief in the Latin maxim "mens sana in corpore sano" - healthy mind, healthy body. It is therefore no surprise, given I have an intellectual understanding of my mental illness, that I acknowledge that my physical body resonates with my mental state, and vice versa.

      The federal government's health reform agenda says nothing about the disadvantages faced by people with an intellectual disability - despite Australia's international commitments. The Medicare Local system could help rectify this inequality.
