Disability in America : toward a national agenda for prevention by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

17 editions published between 1900 and 1991 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report focuses on preventing potentially disabling conditions from developing into disabilities and on minimizing the effects of such conditions on a person's productivity and quality of life. It describes disability as a social and public health issue and not just a physical condition. The report begins with an executive summary, an introduction which discusses prevention issues in general and defines concepts, and a list of 27 recommendations. Subsequent chapters discuss: (1) the magnitude and dimensions of disability in the United States; (2) a conceptual approach to disability prevention and use of the tools and principles of epidemiology; (3) major areas of disability (developmental disabilities, injury-related disabilities, chronic diseases and aging, and secondary conditions associated with primary disabling conditions); (4) government and private sector programs concerned with disability prevention; and (5) conclusions and recommendations in the areas of a national program for the prevention of disability, surveillance, research, access to care and preventive services, and professional and public education. Appendixes contain a paper by Saad Z. Nagi titled "Disability Concepts Revisited: Implications for Prevention"; a statement of one committee member dissenting from this majority report of the Committee on a National Agenda for the Prevention of Disabilities; a response to the dissenting statement by committee members; and committee biographies.

Environmental medicine : integrating a missing element into medical education by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

14 editions published between 1900 and 1995 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume articulates a general program of implementation strategies and provides practical advice for integrating environmental medicine content into medical education. Chapter 1 is an introduction to the issues and the organization of the volume. Chapter 2 lays the foundation for a curriculum centered on six competency-based learning objectives. Chapter 3 uses these objectives as a framework for identifying likely access points in the curriculum for integrating environmental medicine into today's medical studies. Chapter 4 addresses both the barriers to implementing such a curriculum and the opportunities for reducing these barriers. Chapter 5 presents concluding remarks that summarize some of the events that led to the report. Recommendations for integrating an enhanced program of environmental medicine throughout the system of medical education and practice appear at the ends of chapters 2 through 4. Four extensive appendixes which comprise most of the document contain resources including: an example of a tool for teaching how to elicit a good environmental history; a paper on the relevance of and opportunities for integrating environmental medicine into common medical school courses and rotations; 55 case studies useful in teaching and learning; a list of agencies, organizations, services, references (books, reports, and curriculum resources) and tables of environmental health hazards.

Conference on Human Health and Global Climate Change : summary of the proceedings by Paul B Phelps( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Changes in the Earth's climate over the past 100 years appear to be consistent with theoretical models of greenhouse warming, according to the participants in a recent scientific conference on Human Health and Global Climate Change, cosponsored by the National Science and Technology Council and the Institute of Medicine. The focus of concern to the conference participants was the substantial risks to human health, including both direct risks (e.g., death in heat waves or floods, skin cancer) and indirect risks (e.g., changes in food production or the distribution and incidence of vector-borne diseases) that are believed to be associated with changes in global climate. The general agreement that emerged during the conference was that changes in the global climate could pose significant risks to human health. The lack of complete data should not be used as an excuse for inaction, instead, the precautionary principle should apply: If the risk to public health is great, even if there is uncertainty, both policy and action should be biased in favor of precaution. Participants identified a number of actions that should be taken, including (a) the creation of a global surveillance and response network; (b) increased coordination among nations and scientific disciplines; (c) multidisciplinary research on the links between global climate change and human health; (d) improved environmental health training for health professionals; and (e) an outreach program to inform and educate the public about the effects of global climate change on human health. In the face of current fiscal constraints, these efforts must be based on identifying and linking together existing activities, facilities, organizations, and funding agencies
