Prevention medicine (เวชศาสตร์ป้องกัน)
ความหมาย  (Definition)

         
Preventive Medicine  is practiced by all physicians to keep their patients healthy. It is also a unique medical specialty recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Preventive Medicine  focuses on the health of individuals, communities, and defined populations. Its goal is to protect, promote, and maintain health and well-being and to prevent disease, disability, and death.Preventive medicine specialists are licensed medical doctors (MD) or doctors of ostheopathy (DO), who possess core competencies in biostatistics, epidemiology, environmental and occupational medicine, planning and evaluation of health services, management of health care organizations, research into causes of disease and injury in population groups, and the practice of prevention in clinical medicine. They apply knowledge and skills gained from the medical, social, economic, and behavioral sciences.  Preventive medicine has three specialty areas with common core knowledge, skills, and 
competencies that emphasize different populations, environments, or practice settings: aerospace medicine, occupational medicine, and public health and general preventive medicine.*

Early Life Origins of Human Health and Disease Restricted Resource Some full text available
There is compelling evidence that many of the risks leading to the most frequent chronic diseases in adulthood originate in the earliest stages of life. Adverse environmental conditions in utero and during infancy can lead to negative health effects during the subsequent lifetime of the exposed individual.
This book offers precious insights into the latest concepts and results from epidemiologic, clinical and basic studies in this burgeoning area of health care. The developmental origins of various diseases such as diabetes, obesity and cancer are examined, as well as the early programming of reproductive health and different organs. Attention is given to the impact of environmental factors such as nutrition and pollution, and the mediating genetic and epigenetic pathways are reviewed. A crucial point under discussion is the concept of environmental insults adversely affecting not only the exposed persons, but also their descendants. In addition, the economic consequences of a suboptimal start to life and the importance of preventive measures are stressed.
This publication is of great value to anyone interested in health care, notably to specialists in obstetrics, pediatrics, internal medicine, obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Engaging Local Public Health System Partnerships to Educate the Future Public Health Workforce

Abstract  : The Institute of Medicine concluded that keeping the public healthy required a well-educated public health workforce, thus leading to its recommendation that “all undergraduates should have access to education in public health” [2]. In response to this 
call, the authors examined the current practice, feasibility, and value in strengthening (or building) a functional collaborative model between academic institutions and practitioners from local health departments to educate tomorrow’s public health workforce. Local and regional health departments in New England were surveyed to: (1) establish a baseline of existing working relationships between them and nearby academic institutions; (2) examine the barriers that inhibit the development of collaborations with academic partners; (3) assess how they jointly promote public health workforce development; and (4) analyze which essential public health services their partnership addresses. Despite the lack of financial resources often cited for the absence of academic-local health department collaborations, some New England states reported that their academic institution and local public health department partnerships were valued and productive. The authors discuss how effective academic-community collaborations have the potential to facilitate a
broad-based appreciation of public health among students via a wide array of public health curricula and applied experiential learning opportunities in public health settings. The authors propose a model for how to combine basic public health lessons with practical experience and leadership offered by local health departments, in order to foster a real understanding of public health, its importance, practice, and relevance in today’s society from a public health workforce perspective.

abstract :  
            Healthy aging must become a priority objective for both population and personal health services, and will require innovative prevention programming to span those systems. Uptake of essential clinical preventive services is currently suboptimal among adults, owing to a number of system- and office-based care barriers. To achieve maximum health results, prevention must be integrated across community and clinical settings. Many preventive services are portable, deliverable in either clinical or community settings. Capitalizing on that flexibility can improve uptake and health outcomes. Significant reductions in health disparities, mortality,
and morbidity, along with decreases in health 
spending, are achievable through improved collaboration and synergy between population health and personal health systems..

abstract :  A cross-sectional analytical study was conducted among Family Health Leaders in Kongkrailat District, Sukhothai Province. The aims of the study were to characterize preventive behaviors against dengue infection (dependent variables), and to assess associations between these behaviors and socio-demographic, predisposing, enabling, and reinforcing factors (independent variables). In March 2006, data were collected by structured questionnaire from 450 respondents, using multi-stage sampling of sub-districts, villages, and households. Associations were assessed in the 412 subjects with complete data for analyzed dependent variables. Techniques used for data analysis were frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, chi-square tests, and Pearson’s product-moment correlation coefficients. Three aspects of preventive behavior were analyzed: eliminating mosquito breeding places, prevention of mosquito bite, and community-level cooperation against dengue infection. Most respondents (55.6%) had a moderate level of knowledge scores and 42.2% had low scores for controlling breeding places. For prevention of mosquito bite, most subjects (60.4%) did not use mosquito nets in daytime, and most did not use insecticide spray; 31.3% did not cooperate in community-level anti-dengue campaigns. Chi-square tests and correlation analysis showed that factors associated with elimination of breeding places were marital status (p=0.059), knowledge (p=0.001), sufficiency of water container covers (p=0.017), sufficiency of other resources (p=0.046), frequency of receiving information (r=0.361, p< 0.001). For prevention of mosquito bite, gender was associated with daytime net use (p=0.007) and mosquito coil use (p=0.036), education with mosquito coil (p=0.043), income with daytime net use, spray use, and mosquito coil use (p≤=0.003), family size with daytime net use (p=0.005), knowledge with spray use (p=0.037), attitude with daytime net use (p=0.032), receiving information with mosquito coil use (p=0.024). For communitylevel cooperation against dengue infection, attitude was associated with campaign (p=0.001), and frequency of information with spray use (p<0.001) and coil use (p=0.022). Attitude score was positively correlated with knowledge score (p<0.001), but attitude, unlike knowledge, was not associated with elimination of breeding places. It is recommended that regular, continuous programs to improve dengue-preventive behaviors be conducted at the community level.

Description:   A meeting was held in Siena, Italy, in July 2010 to review the evidence for a decrease in public confidence in vaccines, to discuss possible reasons for this phenomenon, and to develop possible strategies to improve public confidence in vaccines. Prevention of morbidity and mortality by vaccination is one of the major public health accomplishments of the last century. Nevertheless, despite the improved safety and effectiveness of vaccines, public confidence in vaccination is decreasing. Improved methods of vaccine safety assessment have not improved public confidence. In addition, dissemination of false information on the Internet has undermined public confidence globally. Reductions in vaccine uptake or use of available vaccines can and have resulted in increased morbidity and mortality due to infectious diseases. The lack of public confidence in vaccines risks undermining the political will necessary to rapidly respond to a more severe influenza pandemic in the future. To improve the current situation, we must define both the risks and the benefits of individual vaccines so that the public can understand the rationale for vaccine recommendations. Key to regaining public trust in vaccines is a credible, consistent, and unified message developed from the private and public sectors that directly addresses public concerns. Unless an active effort is made to improve public confidence and trust in vaccination, there is a risk that gains made in combating the morbidity and mortality of infectious diseases through the use of vaccines will be lost. Loss of political will resulting from this loss of public confidence may also result in inappropriate decisions regarding the development and use of pandemic influenza vaccines for use in future pandemics, thus compromising public health.

Abstract : 
               Opportunities for global health training during residency are steadily increasing. For example, surveys show that more than half of residency programs now offer international electives. Residency programs are increasingly recognizing that global health training improves communication skills, fosters awareness of health disparities, and inspires careers in primary care and public health. Although research has focused on global health education in other specialties, there is a paucity of research on global health training in public health and general preventive medicine (GPM). We sought to describe the extent of global health training across GPM residencies, capture the perspectives of program directors regarding competencies residents need for careers in global health, and identify program directors' perceived barriers to providing global health training. The survey was sent electronically to 42 U.S. GPM residency program directors from September to October 2013. Twenty-three completed surveys were returned. Information from residencies that did not complete the study survey was collected through a predefined search protocol. Data analysis was performed from February through July 2014. Among program directors completing the survey, the most common types of reported global health education were courses (n=17), followed by international rotations (n=10). Ten program directors indicated that resident(s) were involved in global health training, research, or service initiatives. Commonly perceived barriers included funding (87%), scheduling (56.5%), and partnership and sustainability (34.8%). Through global health coursework, research, and practicum rotations, GPM residents could acquire skills, knowledge, and attitudes contributing to careers in global health.

note: Description : The 9th Canadian Immunization Conference was held on 5-8 December 2010 in Quebec City, Canada. Over 1000 academic, public health and vaccine industry scientists, nurses, pharmacists, physicians and policy makers attended the conference, which was organized by the Public Health Agency of Canada-Centre for Immunization Research and Respiratory Infectious Diseases in collaboration with the Canadian Association of Immunization Research and Evaluation, the Canadian Paediatric Society and the Canadian Public Health Association. Fresh from the pandemic influenza A H1N1 2009-2010 experience, in which Canada experienced a smaller Spring 2009 wave followed by a Fall wave that stretched public health prevention and healthcare system resources, conference attendees were given the chance to reflect on lessons from the perspective of communication strategies, vaccine effectiveness, safety and program delivery techniques, in one of six program streams devoted to H1N1. The five other streams were immunization in a global community, vaccine safety, new technologies, vaccine-specific issues and clinical practice. In this article, we summarize some of the key presentations from the six plenary sessions, 36 concurrent symposia and workshops, podium and poster presentations.
