Título: The knowledge, attitude, beliefs and practices of healthy lifestyles among the elderly in Linstead, St. Catherine.

Resumen: In Jamaica, health promotion and education programmes have focused on empowering and facilitating individuals and communities to engage in healthy lifestyle practices to reduce the incidence of non-communicable chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypetension. The elderly receive health education through senior citizens clubs, churches, health services and the mass media. A cross-sectional survey was carried out in Linstead, Saint Catherine among a quota sample of elderly adults (60 years and over) in order to ascertain their knowledge, attitude, beliefs, and practices of healthy lifestyles. Factors examined were their knowledge, self-reported eating habitis, practices, health seeking, and exercise behaviours. Most respondents were knowledgeable about the factors that contribute to a healthy lifestyle including the benefits to be derived from exercise. Ninety-one percent (91) of respondents knew that high fat and salt intake could eventually lead to stroke. Eighty-six percent (86) agreed that exercise reduces stress, and 88 percent knew that smoking was bad for health. Most of the elderly were physically able to engage in some form of exercise or strenuous work that burned calories. The study also revealed some health knowledge deficits, which has implications for health program planning (AU)

Título: Schizophrenia in British Afro-Caribbeans: two debates confused?
Fuente: Int J Soc Psychiatry;37(4):227-32, 1991.
Idioma: En.
Resumen: The concept and aetiology of schizophrenia remain controversial issues. Epidemiological studies reveal considerable variations in rates of diagnosed cases between groups. British Afro-Caribbeans show high rates. At the same time, their psychiatric experience is marked by a high level of conflict with the psychiatric services. The two debates--that surrounding the concept of schizophrenia, and that considering the psychiatric experiences of British Afro-Caribbeans--need to be separated so that each receives appropriate consideration. Studies based on the experiences of people diagnosed as schizophrenic may confuse rather than advance the first debate if due care is not paid to the reliability of the diagnosis. The second debate has consequences for the development of psychiatric services. Further unaddressed questions referring to the mental health of ethnic minorities are suggested. (AU)

Tesis: Presentada en University of the West Indies (Mona) para obtención del grado de Master of Public Health.
Resumen: Twelve years after the historic Alma-Ata Conference and with ten years to go to the year 2000, this study looks at how these concepts have penetrated health and sectors impacting on health as well as knowledge of them by patients using the health services in the Counties of St. George West and Central in Trinidad and Tobago. Data collection was through questionnaires and interviews. Most of the workers had heard of the concepts but for most, this knowledge was described as hazy or incomplete. The majority of patients had never heard of Health For All by the Year 2000 (AU)

Título: Illness behaviour with special emphasis on self-medication: a survey of the diabetic and hypertensive clients of the August Town/Hermitage Community Health Centre, Kingston, Jamaica.

Resumen: The illness and health related behaviour of people is a major concern of health workers and policy makers. A study was conducted among 97 residents of the August Town and Hermitage communities in Kingston, Jamaica, of clients who were diagnosed and being treated for diabetes mellitus and hypertension at the August Town/Hermitage Community Health Centre, Kingston. Data was collected by questionnaire and from the clients health centre records. The study was aimed at elucidating some of the determinants of the illness and health-related behaviour with special emphasis on the practice of self-medication using home remedies and non-prescription drugs. The study confirmed that self-medication was a common first line mode of therapy. This was also despite the finding of a predominantly negative attitude to self-treatment. In addition, clients relied heavily on friends and relatives for information concerning self-medication. No statistically significant relationship was found between self-medication and age, sex, marital status, occupation, crowding, perceived health status, illness, level of education, attitude and frequency of contact with the health services. It was recommended that since self-medication was a common practice, health workers should become conscious of this and develop educational programmes to capitalize on the positive aspects of this practice and monitor any possible deleterious effects (AU)

Título: Women as mothers in Northern Ireland and Jamaica: a critique of the transcultural nursing movement
Fuente: Int J Nurs;27(4):367-74, 1990.
Idioma: En.
Resumen: Participant observation and structured interviews with selected groups of mothers in Northern Ireland and Jamaica revealed a variety of individual experiences that highlighted contrasts between the two cultures, and differences within each culture. The findings are used to illustrate the danger of cultural stereotyping, and the implications for the transcultural nursing movement are discussed. (AU)

Título: Ethnic differences in the experience of pain
Fuente: Soc Sci Med;32(9):1063-6, 1991.
Idioma: En.
Resumen: Investigations of ethnic differences in pain experience have been largely confined to the hospital or laboratory. Such studies are limited by the potentially confounding effects of the expectation of pain in the former and of little or no pain in the latter. The present investigation overcomes some of these methodological problems by studying ethnic differences in pain experience following ear piercing. Afro-West Indian, Anglo-Saxon and Asian subjects (n=84) completed a pain questionnaire and two rating scales after ear-piercing. Half the subjects were told the study was about pain and half that it was concerned with sensation. There were highly significant ethnic differences in pain ratings. The pain condition produced higher ratings than the sensation condition but there were no significant sex differences. The results are discussed in the context of subjects' ratings of their parents' attitudes to minor injury and their own ability to cope with pain. It is argued that investigation of the bases of ethnic differences in pain experience is important in order to develop maximally efficient pain control regimes for all sections of the population.

Título: Acceptability of antenatal diagnosis for sickle-cell disease among Jamaican mothers and female patients
Fuente: West Indian med. j;37(1):12-5, Mar. 1988.
Idioma: En.
Resumen: A questionnaire on the need and acceptability of antenatal diagnosis (AND) for sickle-cell disease was given to 112 women with homozgous sickle-cell (SS) disease and 117 AS mothers of patients with SS disease, all aged 15-45 years. AND was favoured by 57 percent of patients and 76 percent of mothers, the option for termination of an affected pregnancy being the reason in 43 percent of patients and in 51 percent of mothers among this group. Fear of the procedure was the commonest reason for not selecting AND. Of the two common methods, chorinonic villus sampling (first trimister) and amniocentesis (second trimester), 74 percent of all women selected the first trimester method, and 93 percent considered these test should be available in Jamaica. Faced with the diagnosis of a foetus with SS disease, 30 percent of patients and 46 percent of mothers stated that they would request termination. (AU)
