  • Creation and Expansion Community Medicine in Iran

    • Authors: Hossain-Ali Ronaghy
      Pages: 1 - 10
      Abstract: Abstract
      In 1972 a research was performed by the author at John’s Hopkins University, regarding migration of Iranian
      medical graduates in the United States. We found up to 90% of Shiraz medical graduate and 40% of Tehran
      graduate were permanently migrating to the United States. Further research indicates the cause of migration to
      be military housing, income and sociopolitical facts.
      Furthermore, we found the curriculum of most medical schools in Iran is a carbon copy of western medical
      schools and had no relevance with the need of over 70% of the Iranian population who were residing in rural
      communities in 1970s.
      In order to alleviate this, we established the department of community medicine in 1972 in Shiraz to modify the
      curriculum of the Shiraz medical school with an established and strong academic of clinical discipline was not
      an easy job, particularly when the medical staff was determined to make Shiraz a “center of excellence” and we
      in the department of community medicine felt we are desperate for a “program of relevance”.
      As I was a professor of both medicine and community medicine and the chairman of medicine was extremely
      friendly with our program. We could compromise and eventually we decided to embark on a new medical
      school with the totally new program. The new medical school, which was established in Fasa was a successful
      program for recreating students from a small town and we found recently 90% of graduates of the fist two years
      are still residing and practicing in Fars province. Unfortunately, later this medical schools was joined with all
      other medical school with the national matching program, which was against our initial purpose for recruiting
      from small towns.
      The other major achievement of the department of community medicine was establishing a health centers in
      rural community which was evaluated and approved by WHO and within eight years more than 1.5 Million
      rural populations were covered by that program

  • Breast Cancer in Iran: levels, Variations and Correlates

    • Authors: Kambiz Abachizadeh, Abdorreza Moradi-Kouchi, Ali Ghanbari-Motlagh, Ahmad Kousha, Reza Shekarriz-Foumani, Amir Erfani
      Pages: 11 - 21
      Abstract: Background and Objectives: As the most common neoplasm among females and the second most common
      cancer globally, breast cancer imposes enormous costs on health systems. This study aims to estimate levels of
      breast cancer in Iran and provinces, and examine correlates of incidence of breast cancer, focusing on place of
      residence, using the most recent nationally available data.
      Material and Methods: This study is based on a total of 8333 breast cancer cases (259 males and 8074 females)
      registered by Iran Cancer Registration System during a Persian year (March 21th 2009 through March 20th
      2010). Complementary demographic data about the study population was obtained from the 2011 National
      Census, conducted by Iranian Statistical Center. The Age-Standardized Rate (ASR) of breast cancer was
      estimated for the overall population, the capital city of provinces, large metropolitan areas, and four categories
      of provinces located in the north, south, east, west, and center of Iran.
      Results: Only 3.1% of total 8333 breast cancer patients were men. The mean (SD) age of female and male
      participants were, respectively, 50.5(12.7) and 56.5 (15.4). The rate of breast cancer for the country was estimated
      at 33.1 cancers per 100,000 population, and the estimated rates for men and women was are respectively 24.6
      and 0.82 per 100,000 population. The incidence of breast cancer in Iran varies from 15 cancers per 100,000
      population in urban areas to 34.6 cancers in large metropolitan areas. Also, the estimated rate of breast cancers
      ranged from 18.1, 19.1 and 19.7 cancers in the west, north, and east of the country, respectively, to 29.3 and 29.7
      cancers per 100,000 population in southern and central provinces of Iran. With rising the level of urbanization
      of provinces, the estimated rate of breast cancer increased (r=0.71, P<0.001).
      Conclusion: Given the strong correlation between the incidence of breast cancer and urbanization, especial
      preventative and screening health programs need to be designed and implemented in urban areas to detect
      suspected cases of breast cancer.

      subscales of satisfaction, 0.86 the quality of the alternatives, 0.82 the investment rate, and 0.67 the personal
      commitment. Correlation coeffiients showed that marital adjustment scale had a signifiant correlation of 0.84
      with satisfaction subscales, 0.29 substitute quality, 0.55 investment rate, and 0.77 personal commitment, which
      indicates a convergent validity, P<0.01. The factor structure of the scale of the investment model was confimed
      using a confimatory factor analysis.
      Conclusion: The confimatory factor structure, reliability and validity of the investment model of relationship
      commitment were acceptable for research and diagnostic applications.

      Abstract: Background and Objectives: Divorce is one of the social harms that reduces general health and quality
      of life among women. Emotion-focused group therapy aims to limit the adverse psychological effects of
      divorce. The objective of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of emotion-focused group therapy
      on hope and negative automatic thoughts among divorced women.
      Material and Methods: This study was a quasi-experimental design with pretest-posttest and control
      group. Participants included women who had been divorced and had sought help from community centers
      in Tehran city in 2017. Simple random sampling was used and participants were categorized as two equal
      intervention and control groups. The intervention group received emotion-focused group therapy for 12
      sessions and then post-test was performed for them. For data collection, the Hope Scale developed by
      Snyder et al and Negative Automatic Thoughts developed by Holon & Kendall were used. Statistical
      analyses were performed using IBM SPSS-22.
      Results: Responses of 60 (intervention group=30 and control group=30) was analyzed. The mean (SD) of hope
      in divorced women was higher than control group after emotion-focused group therapy: 32.6 (5.1) vs. 28.8
      (5.4), P<0.01. In addition, emotion-focused group therapy reduced higher negative automatic thoughts among
      the intervention group compared to the control group: 100.3 (6.4) vs. 104.1 (5.9), P<0.01.
      Conclusion: The study showed that emotion-focused group therapy improved hope and automatic thoughts
      among divorced women

    • Authors: Hossein Rostami, Hamzeh Ahmadian, Toraj Hashemi-Nosratabad, Omid Moradi
      Pages: 77 - 86
      Abstract: Background and Objectives: Currently organizations with a strategic approach to human resources consider it
      as a valuable asset and are planning to further enhance the style, quality of life and job satisfaction of the staff.
      The purpose of this study was to determine the mediating role of resilience in the relationship between social
      support and quality of life of law enforcement personnel.
      Material and Methods: This study was correlational study using structural equation modeling. The statistical
      population of this research included all the law enforcement personnel of Tabriz in 2015. From this population,
      350 people were selected by random cluster sampling and completed social support, resilience scale and quality
      of life questionnaires. Data analysis was performed using regression analysis in the Amos program and bootstrap
      Results: The mean (SD) of participants age was 30.3 (3.8). The social support 45.6 (6.2) had a signifiant
      relationship with quality of life 58.9 (11.6), (r=0.386) and resiliency 43 (10.3) (r=0.347); and resiliency had a
      signifiant relationship with quality of life (r=0.495). Structural equation modeling showed the direct path from
      social support to quality of life (β=0.235, P=0.001), and resiliency (β=0.435, P=0.0001). Also indicated that direct
      effect from resiliency to quality of life (β=0.555, P=0.0001) was signifiant. Social support positively affect
      quality of life through resiliency (β=0.241, P=0.002).
      Conclusion: The study showed that social support can predict positively quality of life and resiliency and the
      resiliency can predict positively the quality of life.
