ABORIGINAL PEOPLES AND THE CANADIAN HEALTHCARE SYSTEM
Written by Marina Freire-Gormaly

"I got my degree in physiology, but I didn’t want to do research for the rest of my life, so I went into nursing, because I thought nurses are the point of entry into the healthcare system."
says Rhonda Goodtrack, an advisor to Aboriginal students at the Native Access Program to Nursing and Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan.

"So I applied, got in, went through the four years, got my degree and went to work in public health right out of nursing school."

ALBERTA CENTRE FOR ACTIVE LIVING

For Practitioners! Our new Physical Activity Counselling Toolkit is now available online! This timely and practical toolkit offers ten plain language resources for practitioners to use when working with their clients.

Over the last year, our staff and an advisory committee have been working hard to developing these resources. Each resource in the toolkit has been designed to help facilitate the physical activity counselling process. Practitioners can use these resources as handouts and refer to them online. Each resource has been reviewed and endorsed by the Alberta CSEP (Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology).

The resources include:

  • Taking the first step: deciding to be physically active
  • Making a physical activity plan
  • Setting goals for physical activity
  • What stops you from being physically active?
  • Benefits of physical activity
  • Physical activity and your blood pressure
  • High blood pressure: how to stay safe when active
  • Physical activity and type 2 diabetes
  • Diabetes: how to stay safe when active
  • Healthy weight and physical

Practitioners are encouraged to use any or all of these resources when working with clients.

We’d love to hear from you about these resources, whether now or after you have put them to use! Please send your feedback to active.living@ualberta.ca.

Funding for this project was provided by the Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Foundation. We would also like to acknowledge the hard work of our Advisory Committee members and the helpful involvement of the Alberta-CSEP.

New Release-The Role of Social Support in Reducing Psychological Distress

A new Analysis in Brief titled The Role of Social Support in Reducing Psychological Distress has been released by the Canadian Population Health Initiative (CPHI) of the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).

This study demonstrates that social support is an important factor in promoting the transition from high levels to lower levels of distress two years later; it also shows that the significant supports are different for men and women. For women, regular opportunities to interact and talk with people showed a reduction in distress, whereas for men, being married was connected to improvements in levels of distress.

Release-Disparities in Primary Health Care Experiences Among Canadians With Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions

Despite a tendency to report overall satisfaction with their primary health care, Canadians living with ambulatory care sensitive conditions may not be receiving all the care they need, according to a new release titled Disparities in Primary Health Care Experiences Among Canadians With Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions. Barriers and challenges exist for two groups in particular--lower-income individuals and women. Lower-income individuals are less likely to report that their primary health care physician involves them in clinical decisions, and women are less likely than men to report receiving all four recommended tests for chronic disease monitoring or to have medication side effects explained.

This new report by the Canadian Population Health Initiative (CPHI) of the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) looks at differences by socio-economic and geographic conditions, health conditions and sex in the access to, use of and appropriateness of primary health care experiences for people diagnosed with ambulatory care sensitive conditions.

Return on Investment: Mental Health Promotion and Mental Illness Prevention

The Canadian Population Health Initiative (CPHI) of the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) commissioned the Canadian Policy Network at the University of Western Ontario to complete a scoping study that examines the return on investment and cost effectiveness of mental health promotion.

Mental health issues will be among the leading causes of disability in Canada by 2030, yet there is limited information about the costs of interventions for mental illness prevention and mental health promotion. This scoping study found that there is research showing a return on investment for some mental health promotion/illness prevention interventions. The strongest evidence was for interventions targeting children and youth (such as those that focus on conduct disorders, depression, parenting, and suicide awareness and prevention), while the weakest evidence was from the workplace sector.

For more information, contact Karen Weir at kweir@cihi.ca.

Produced by the Canadian Population Health Initiative, this report explores two aspects of the urban physical environment known to negatively affect health: outdoor air pollution and heat extremes. It examines hospitalization rates for respiratory and circulatory diseases in relation to residential distance from a pollution-emitting facility and uses Toronto and Montréal as case studies to explore the relationship between heat extremes and health service utilization for respiratory and circulatory diseases.

CENTRES OF EXCELLENCE FOR WOMEN'S HEALTH
CIET CANADA

Important finding that could be lost among all the others in this quite dense little article we've just finished with some colleagues in Australia and New Zealand. (Documents/HIV/HIV 3C near final.pdf)

Based on HIV new diagnoses up to 2008 in most of Canada, transmission in Aboriginal populations is increasingly through heterosexual intercourse; young Aboriginal women are four times more likely to be diagnosed HIV positive than are their male counterparts. It seems likely that prevalence rates are well past the arbitrary 1% said to define a generalized HIV epidemic.

This means the HIV prevention business cannot continue as usual.

We need to see a lot more resources tracked into HIV surveillance and prevention in Aboriginal communities, shifting gears from the contained epidemic model to one of a generalising epidemic.

I did a briefing note (Documents/HIV/briefing note -- when is an epidemic generalized 18may2011.pdf) that should explain it a bit better than I can do in a few lines. If you would like to discuss the article or its implications, please do get in touch.

I would also welcome hearing about anyone else you think should receive this (and please do pass it on to anyone you think might be interested).

PROVINCIAL INFECTIOUS DISEASE ADVISORY COMMITTEE (PIDAC)

Provincial Infectious Diseases Advisory Committee on Surveillance has updated the following best practice document, first published in June 2008, to assist infection prevention and control professionals to develop and implement their surveillance programs in a manner that will permit comparisons with their peers and allow them to quickly detect early increases in health care-associated infections that may indicate the presence of an outbreak.

The revised Best Practices for Surveillance of Health Care-associated Infections in Patient and Resident Populations is available online.

On April 1, 2011, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care transferred responsibility for the functions of the Provincial Infectious Diseases Advisory Committee (PIDAC) to Public Health Ontario (formerly the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion), recognizing the alignment of PIDAC activities with Public Health Ontario’s legislated mandate.

Physical activity among First Nations people off reserve, Métis and Inuit

In this study data from the 2005 Canadian Community Health Survey were used to compare rates of active and moderately active leisure time (versus inactive) among First Nations people off reserve, Métis and Inuit with rates among non-Aboriginal people.  An active or moderately active lifestyle was studied in relation to self-perceived physical and mental health and the presence of chronic conditions.

For the full report, please see link:

Activité physique chez les Premières nations hors réserve, les Métis et les Inuits

Dans cette étude, on a utilisé les données de l’Enquête sur la santé dans les collectivités canadiennes de 2005 pour comparer les taux de loisirs actifs et modérément actifs (par rapport à inactifs) chez les Premières nations hors réserve, les Métis et les Inuits, avec ceux chez les non-Autochtones.  Un mode de vie actif ou modérément actif a été étudié en rapport avec la santé physique et mentale autoévaluée et la présence de problèmes de santé chroniques.
