The Effectiveness of Brief Interventions in Reducing Binge
CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION The Effectiveness of Brief Interventions in Reducing Binge Drinking: Perceptions of Voluntary Sector Practitioners A Case Study of Phoenix Futures .1 Background to Binge Drinking Alcohol use has been a widely practiced tradition among nations around the world for the last centuries. Alcohol was consumed in large amounts regardless of its implication on health because the populace considered it a form of socialisation. For generations, it had been largely perceived as an integral part of British culture to get drunk (Alcohol Concern, 2003), as well as an accepted form of exchange at every level of interaction in society, especially in the western world (Dean, 1990). Consumption is often associated with a number of factors, which include: hygiene, diet, medicinal requirements, religion and recreation. In most countries over the world, one of the prime reasons for consuming alcoholic beverages is socialisation or recreation, although it may also be precipitated by stressful events. Alcohol consumption has emerged as one of the most contentious practices around the world; where drinking was previously a common tradition, it is now faced with stiff health concern. To some scholars, moderate consumption of alcohol is safe. Other researchers have stated that alcohol limits are unclear in that many (young) people do not identify themselves as binge
The aim of this study was to investigate the health and nutritional status of older people living in sheltered accommodation. The objectives were to determine if health was poorer in rented rather than owned accommodation or in more deprived areas.

The nature of women abuse and the effect of abuse on their quality of life
The nature of women abuse and the effect of abuse on their quality of life CHAPTER 1 Introduction . Statement of the problem Intimate partner abuse is a public worldwide health problem resulting in negative mental and physical health outcomes for abused women. It occurs in all countries and transcends social, economic, religious, and cultural groups (Campbell & Humphreys, 1993; Campbell & Lewandowski, 1999, Carolyn, 2002; Center for Health and Gender Equity, 2002). World Health Organization (1997) reported on domestic violence, highlighting its prevalence in 24 countries with 20-50% of women being the victims in intimate partner abuse sometime in their lives. Intimate partner abuse during pregnancy is common. Studies have shown that the prevalence of physical and sexual abuse during pregnancy ranges from 3% to 8%, depending on the population surveyed and the number of questions asked (Hedin, Grimstad, Moller, Schei & Janson, 1999; Muhajarine & D'Arcy, 1999; Stewart & Cecutti, 1993). Pregnancy may indeed increase the risk of abuse (Wester, Sweett & Stolz, 1994) while the pattern of abuse may alter 2 during pregnancy (Bohn, 1990). In a study by Gielen, O'Campo, Faden, Kass and Xue (1994), moderate to severe violence was reported during the postpartum period. Intimate partner abuse during pregnancy and postnatal period threatens maternal and child health

Foster parent decision-making and the Health Belief Model.
Running Head: FOSTER PARENT DECISION-MAKING AND THE HBM Foster parent decision-making and the Health Belief Model Lin Marklin Western Michigan University A note about the APA format. I realize that many of my in-text citations should be shortened when the citations appears a second time in the paper. The strategy that works best for me is to get all my sentences and paragraphs into final order, and then do the final edit of my in-text citations. Abstract Foster children have more mental health needs than children in the general population (Blumberg, & Landsverk, 1996). The number of children in foster care is mounting, and children with high mental health needs are becoming a larger percentage of this population. Despite a strong need for services, many children in foster care have mental health needs that are unmet (Rosenfeld, Pilowsky, & Fine, 1997). Foster parents are primarily responsible for securing mental health services, but health communication research into the variables that influence a foster parent's decision to use mental health services is lacking. The Health Belief Model (HBM) could be insightful in understanding these parental decisions. This study will assess the contribution of the variables described in the Health Belief Model (HBM) to foster parents' decisions regarding mental health services.

The aim of this essay is to critically evaluate the bio-psycho-social perspectives and influences on the health and well being of a patient, who has been nursed during an acute placement. In this essay names and places have been altered, to uphold the professional requirements, of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC, 2008). The pseudonym Mrs Jones will be used. The essay will then proceed to define what health is and then critical analyse the bio-medical and the biopsychosocial models approach, to individual health and social well being. It will then be explained what has happened accurately to Mrs Jones biologically, with regard to any pre dispositional disturbances in her physiological processes. This essay will then explore psychological and sociological factors that have had an impact on Mrs Jones as an Individual, which include grief and perceived loneliness. This essay will then summaries and formulate a conclusion based on the findings that have been established throughout the essay. Mrs Jones individual patient profile is included, foremost to give prospective readers an understanding of the biopsychosocial influences that have contributed to Mrs Jones ill-health. The World Health Organization, (1948), defined health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity," (p100). "Complete physical,
Using creative Activities In care
Unit 9: Using creative Activities In care By Charlotte Raistrick. Firstly, I feel this quote "no special ability or disability required" (Something to draw on by Carol Ross) is the most effective concise statement to answer the above question. The advantages of using creative activities give self-explanation to why creative activities are used in care. These advantages are listed as follows; * Almost everyone has used art as a child, and can still do so if encouraged to forget about images having to be 'artistically or culturally correct'. * It can be used as means of pre-verbal or non-verbal communication. This can be important for those who do not have a good mastery of verbal communication, for whatever reason. It can be a vital tool in those peoples communication. * Pictures can act as a bridge between an Art Therapist and client, where the subject is too embarrassing to talk about or too disturbing to the client. This can therefore lead to help for the client. * It can be used as a means of self-exploration and self-expression. A picture is often a more precise description of feelings and depiction of experiences, which are 'hard to put into words'. Aids effective communication. * The process of 'doing art' can sometimes help people to become more aware of feeling previously hidden from them; this is partly due to its relaxing element and escapism
Report on Questionnaire sent to BSPGHAN members on Quality of Service and Professional Quality of Life.
Report on Questionnaire sent to BSPGHAN members on Quality of Service and Professional Quality of Life Alastair Baker, Variety Club Children's Hospital, Denmark Hill, London SE5 9RS on behalf of the BSPGHAN council & Myfanwy Morgan, Public Health Sciences, King's College London SE132D.- April 2004. Very rapid and major groups of changes in the NHS have been initiated by the government with enormous potential consequences for consultants. The first group include those associated with Clinical Governance (CG), while the second are changes in the relationships between hospital Trusts and their consultant employees in the new consultant contract (CC). Both have implications for hours of employment spent in hospital. An important component of the new contract is compliance with the European Working Time Directive (EWTD) limiting working hours to 48 per week. Thirdly, changes in junior doctors' hours driven by EWTD, national sympathy for junior doctors' poor conditions of service, and changes in training to EU requirements have shifted responsibility for continuity of patient care to consultant level. Paediatric specialties have been recognised as 'Hard Pressed', with implications for intensity of work. It is unclear whether there are adequate resources to accommodate the above changes or what ultimately their combined effects will be on the workload, quality of service provided
