Título: Knowledge and understanding of AIDS among health-care workers in Jamaica
Fuente: West Indian Med. j;38(4):234-7, Dec. 1989.
Idioma: En.
Resumen: Six hundred and fifty questionnaires were sent to Health-care Workers (HCW) in four hospitals to assess the knowledge and understanding on HIV transmission and isolation precautions to be instituted for control and also to ascertain whether any differences in knowledge existed between HCW of teaching and non-teaching hospitals. Five hundred and nine questionaires were returned, a response rate of 79 percent . Questions on HIV transmission via blood transfusion and sexual intercourse and proper disposal of sharp instruments received the highest scores (85-100), embracing all groups of teaching and non-teaching hospitals. The greatest area of misconception and misunderstanding was reflected in responses obtained on isolation precautions (<30) for both teaching and non-teaching hospitals. Our study emphasizes an urgent need for comprehensive, continuous education of HCW on prevention and control of HIV infections in Jamaica (AU)

Título: Do relatives of terminally ill patients also benefit from hospice care?
Fuente: West Indian med. j;39(4):239-42, Dec. 1990.
Idioma: En.
Resumen: An analysis was carried out on the extent to which staff responded to the relatives of cancer patients who had been admitted to the Consie Walters Hospice Care Centre, and the Pain Centre, both located in Kingston, Jamaica. Although no relationship was found between frequency of intervention and relatives' (caregivers') health, grief reactions were found to be related to a need for staff interaction. The more caregivers reported that they needed staff emotional support and practical assistance, the more intensely the reported grief, and the greater were their reports of anxiety and insomnia. Age was found to influence the relationship between adjustment and receiving intervention (AU)

Título: An analysis of the maternity services provided by the traditional birth attendant in a rural parish - St. Elizabeth Jamaica, West Indies.
Idioma: En.
Resumen: The study reveals the fact that most "Traditional Birth Attendants" (Nanas) are elderly individuals, who acquired their skills through training from another Nana. In addition to delivering babies they offer assistance to the mother in the home after birth. Though some of their practices are harmful, it is believed that mothers use their services due to the unavailability of hospital facilities in their area. It is recommended that training of these Nanas would be of benefit to the community as a whole (AU)

Título: A study of the integration of the genetic programme into the maternal and child health services of the Cayman Islands.
Fuente: Kingston; s.n; 1980. 83 p. maps, tab.
Idioma: En.
Resumen: The study of the integration of the Genetic Programme into the Maternal and Child Health Services of the Cayman Islands sought to ascertain the reactions opinions, attitudes and personal experience of the community health nurses, the staff-nurse midwives, and the mothers of affected children, as they relate to the Genetic Programme. Four community health nurses, seven staff-nurse midwives, and twenty-nine mothers with affected children were interviewed. The programme has provided role expansion for the nurse and a new challenge. They feel inadequate due to the lack of information in this new field. They expressed the feeling that the problems they are experiencing can be overcome with education and training, by in-service education and workshops. The mothers expressed great appreciation for the programme, stating that they are aware of exactly what is wrong with their children. Based on the findings of the study, the researcher has outlined several recommendations for strengthening the Genetic Programme and enhancing its contribution to the delivery of health care (AU)

Título: Student learning experiences with Jamaican practitioners
Fuente: Med Teach;12(2):223-5, 1990.
Idioma: En.
Resumen: Due to the destruction of teaching facilities in primary care by a recent hurricane, first clinical year medical students were placed with general practitioners, in order to fulfil the requirements of a community medicine clerkship. Student feedback indicated a very high level of interest, with a varity of learning experiences - the attitudinal attributes of general practitioners ranking highest. This experience has provided a useful opportunity to enhance the training of medical students and to develop collaborative links with non - university physicians. This paper summarizes the experiences of the first 39 students involved in the clerkship. (AU)
