Gun Violence: A Public Health Concern? Gun Violence: A Public Health Concern? – Clinical Correlations Search Gun Violence: A Public Health Concern? June 9, 2016 8 min read By Matthew B. McNeill, MD Peer Reviewed One can often feel numb or indifferent to the seemingly nightly reports of gun deaths on American news programs. Individual homicides, suicides, or accidental gun deaths are tragic and tragically commonplace. However, over the last two decades, a tide of unrest with the current role (...) , SC, and San Bernardino, CA. Initially reserved to the political class and social activists, the call for action on firearms has reached a fever pitch as it has become more visible to the general public. While the debate and consideration of the right to possess firearms and ammunition is best left to legal authorities and Constitutional scholars, the over 30,000 annual deaths by firearm must at least prompt the consideration of gun violence as a significant public health concern.

Emerging Zika virus disease: a public health emergency of global concern Infectious diseases remain a leading source of human morbidity and mortality. Recently, emerging infectious diseases are dominated by zoonoses, and eventually rising considerably. Their emergence is dependent on various factors especially, socioeconomic, environmental and ecological factors etc. Recently, the swift spread of Zika virus (ZIKV) through the Americas, simultaneously with the association of infection (...) with microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome, has strained this previously overlooked virus into the global attention. ZIKV is an emerging mosquito-borne Flavivirus, identified in rhesus monkey in 1947 in Uganda, and eventually in human in 1952. Considering the severity and recent spread over Americas, it has been declared as a public health emergency of international concern, and expected number of cases may be around three to four million. Therefore, it's important for all to assess the risk and be prepared

Understanding the Public Health Implications Concerning Shale Gas Production and Hydraulic Fracturing JANUARY 2016 1 Understanding the Public Health Implications Concerning Shale Gas Production and Hydraulic Fracturing Helen Ward, PhD 1 and Anne-Marie Nicol, PhD 1 Introduction The intent of this document is to synthesize scientific information related to public health concerns of relevance to Canada about shale gas production (including the pre-production stages of drilling, hydraulic (...) fracturing, and well completion, as well as abandonment). Current policy and regulations are not considered. For the most part, the environmental and public health implications relating to shale gas production also apply to other types of unconventional natural gas production using hydraulic fracturing, including that of tight gas and coal bed methane. Basic descriptions and definition of terms for shale gas production and the hydraulic fracturing process are provided in the NCCEH summary “Overview

Understanding the complexity of biopsychosocial factors in the public health epidemic of overweight and obesity Obesity is a complex and multifaceted public health problem. This commentary reflects on a new theoretical model of obesity (i.e. Homeostatic Theory of Obesity proposed by Marks), and calls for additional research to examine biopsychosocial factors that may be of importance in developing interventions that promote long-term maintenance of weight loss and in developing obesity (...) prevention programs. Furthermore, we discuss the role of socioeconomic factors in obesity and call for interdisciplinary efforts to address obesity risk factors in the interest of public health.

209. Public Health Nurses and Mothers Challenge and Shift the Meaning of Health Outcomes Full Text available with Trip Pro

Public Health Nurses and Mothers Challenge and Shift the Meaning of Health Outcomes Maternal, child, and newborn health is a priority area in Canada and around the world. The work of public health nurses (PHNs) is often invisible and misunderstood. The purpose of this qualitative research project was to explore how universal and targeted home visiting programs for mothers and babies were organized, delivered, and experienced through the everyday practices of PHNs (n = 16) and mothers (n = 16 (...) ) in Nova Scotia, Canada. Feminist poststructuralism and discourse analysis were used to analyze interviews. Concepts of relations of power enabled an understanding of how health outcomes had been socially and institutionally constructed through binary relations. PHNs and mothers spoke about the importance of "softer" health outcomes, including maternal self-confidence and empowerment that had been constructed as less important than health outcomes that were seen to be more tangible and physical

Jedi public health: Co-creating an identity-safe culture to promote health equity The extent to which socially-assigned and culturally mediated social identity affects health depends on contingencies of social identity that vary across and within populations in day-to-day life. These contingencies are structurally rooted and health damaging inasmuch as they activate physiological stress responses. They also have adverse effects on cognition and emotion, undermining self-confidence (...) biopsychosocial processes have population health effects. We explicate an emergent framework, Jedi Public Health (JPH). JPH focuses on changing features of settings in everyday life, rather than individuals, to promote population health equity, a high priority, yet, elusive national public health objective. We call for an expansion and, in some ways, a re-orienting of efforts to eliminate population health inequity. Policies and interventions to remove and replace discrediting cues in everyday settings hold
