The sustainability of health committees in Nelson Mandela Bay

Zhakata, Chikomborero January 2014 (has links)
Primary health care is pivotal to the growth of a country’s economy by improving the health and social well-being of its people. Several efforts and structures have been put in place to ensure that all South Africans have access to health facilities as well as representation in the health facilities, just as community members are represented in schools and other boards. Health committees play an important and integral role to the community and health facilities by being mediators between the community and the health facility (Padarath &Friedman, 2008). The Eastern Cape is one of the provinces that has health committees that are fully functional and a number of factors including the collaboration of key stakeholders (facility managers, community members, clinic staff and ward councillors) contribute to why health committees have been operational in the Eastern Cape(Padarath &Friedman , 2008). It becomes critical to investigate factors that sustain health committees in Nelson Mandela Bay. This chapter introduces the research topic, purpose, rationale and background as well as the objectives of the study. The research focuses on investigating the sustainability of health committees in Nelson Mandela Bay therefore making it critical to define the term sustainability. Conceptualizing sustainability has been ongoing with various definitions from learners from different backgrounds. Sustainability as a concept emanates from different dimensions namely, scientific, political economic and indigenous dimension. Sustainability has been described by scholars as a state of well-being and as an evolutionary process (Dimitrov, 2010). Sustainability is regarded as a state of well being whereby humans can live in co-exist with the natural world, this definition takes into account issues to do with good health , cultural identity, personal security and freedom of choice. Sustainability- well being brings out a lot of questions and problems in identifying the fundamentals values of sustainability. It is continuously debated amoung scholars if sustainability of well being pertains only to the health conditions of human beings or it should be extended to others (Dimitrov, 2010) “Sustainability that is restricted to the well being of humans is related to Notions about security of individual/community health together with financial security together with financial security; the planet is regarded as a resource to further this end (Dimitrov, 2010:4) If however well-being definitions of sustainability are construed to preserving and protecting the environment as well as biodiversity of other species (plant and animals) then the normative definitions of sustainability from this viewpoint are tendered with notions of global Environmental stability, ecological considerations and security of ecosystems” (Dimitrov, 2010:4).

A Randomized Controlled Field Trial of the Efficacy of a Simplified Maternal Immunization Schedule in Reducing Neonatal Tetanus Deaths in Rural Sierra Leone

Nelson, Lauris Harvey 09 1900 (has links)
<p>The purpose of this thesis is to describe a research strategy for evaluating the efficacy of a reduced dose maternal tetanus immunization schedule in reducing neonatal tetanus deaths in Sierra Leone.</p> <p>Neonatal tetanus has been demonstrated to be a major cause in infant death in areas where sanitary midwifery is unavailable. A review of the literature reveals evidence for reduction in neonatal tetanus deaths by maternal immunization using a conventional three dose adsorbed tetanus toxoid.</p> <p>In Sierra Leone, as in many developing countries, the resources are unavailable to maintain a three-dose schedule in the relatively inaccessible interior of the country. A two-dose schedule of a concentrated adsorbed toxoid has been recommended as an alternative by the World Health Organization. Research on simplified immunization schedules has been reviewed; the results are inconclusive.</p> <p>A double-blind randomized placebo-controlled design has been selected to address the research questions. Various aspects of this design are discussed with respect to methodologic and ethical issues.</p> <p>Procedures for carrying out the trial and for the assessment of neonatal tetanus death in a remote chiefdom in Sierra Leone are proposed. A procedure for the analysis of outcome data is presented.</p> / Master of Science (MS)

Strategies for the Evaluating of Computed Tomography in Diagnostics and Therapeutics

McGurran, Joseph John January 1980 (has links)
<p>The introduction of a new radiologic imaging technology requires an assessment of its proper place in the diagnosis and treatment of specified conditions. In terms of its use in diagnosis, computed tomography must be evaluated with reference to the existing diagnostic process to determine whether its contribution is likely to have any beneficial impact on the patient. In terms of its use in therapy, the special ability of computed tomography to make an image of soft tissue points to its potential use in the initial staging of malignant neoplastic disease.</p> <p>The objective of this thesis is to propose a methodology of evaluation of Computed Body Tomography that may be carried out in association with normal clinical practice, and to illustrate this with a diagnostic example and a therapeutic example. In both instances there are two steps to the evaluation. First, a comparison of the accuracy of the information of computed tomography against the conventional diagnostic tests. Second, the strategy for evaluating the benefit of the introduction of computed tomography in the diagnostic and therapeutic examples.</p> / Master of Science (MS)

A Research Design to Evaluate Ultrasound in Patients with Shoulder Stiffness

Stratford, Paul W. 07 1900 (has links)
<p>The objective of this thesis is to propose a methodology of the evaluation of the effectiveness of therapeutic ultrasound and exercise in physiotherapy outpatients with shoulder stiffness. The comparison group is to obtain exercise alone. The results of the study are to be analysed using an analysis of covariance with suspected confounding variables as the covariates.</p> / Master of Science (MS)
