Essential attributes and qualifiers of primary health care
Andréa Silvia Walter de Aguiar,Pollyanna Martins
Revista Brasileira em Promo??o da Saúde , 2012,
Abstract: Historically, the primary health care (PHC) has been associated with the first level of care from a health system and characterized by the kind of professional that in it operates, where is expected a predominance of specialists in this area. However, the major limitation for this type of characterization is that the profile of professionals engaged in this service may vary from country to country.Several theoretical and conceptual landmarks proposed approaches and indicators to assess and characterize the APS. In 1978, the American Institute of Medicine suggested an approach in which listed its attributes such as accessibility, integrality, coordination, continuity and responsibility. This was an important landmark in an attempt to outline a normative approach to measure it. However, most indicators and specific definition was not suggested. The selected indicators required a high level of performance, were difficult to be achieved, and focused on the capacity of services and not in its concrete realization(1).A 1996 report, from the same institution, defined PHC as the provision of integrated services and accessible by clinicians who are responsible for attending a large majority of personal care needs, developing a continued partnership with patients and working within family and community. This definition does not include the first contact and focuses on individual attention.The Canadian Medical Association, in 1996, considered the APS as a front door of the health system and community interventions included in the definition of the functions of APS. In the same year was published a Charter for General Practice / Family Medicine in Europe (Letter to General Practice / Family Medicine in Europe), which describes 12 characteristics: general, accessible, integrated, continuous, as a team, holistic, personalized, targeted for the family and the community, coordinated, confidential and protectress(2).Donabedian(3) systematized a group of important variables that can assess the quality of a system or health service and rated according to their characteristics in structure, process and outcome. The evaluation of the process includes the quality of services provided by health professionals individually or in groups and refer to professional qualifications, organization and coordination of the work process of teams. The evaluation of the structure includes environmental conditions and equipment in which the services are provided and the results are evaluated starting from the verification of changes in health status of a population that can be attributed to t

Health (Health) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/health.2014.621343
Abstract: Background: Investigating self-perception of oral health among the elderly may contribute towards changing public health and assistance policies in the area. Methods: The present study assessed the oral health status (tooth decay, need for treatment, periodontal status, use of and need for dental prosthesis, soft tissue alterations and self-perception of oral health) of 102 elderly people from two community groups in Fortaleza, Ceará State, Brazil. Results: Mean age was 69.9 years and 82.4% were female. Mean DMFT was 30.17 with a predominant missing component; 63.7% were edentulous. Regarding prosthesis, 29.4% and 67.6% of elderly patients did not use upper and lower dentures respectively, while 66.7% and 78.4% required some type of upper and lower prosthesis respectively. Among valid sextants, 44.3% presented dental calculus and 34.3% presented loss of attachment from 6 to 8 mm. Soft tissue alterations were found in 58.8%. Despite of precarious clinical conditions and dental treatment needs, good oral health perception was found (49%), as well as satisfaction with the appearance of teeth and gums (60.8%). Conclusion: Subjects displayed unsatisfactory oral health conditions, accumulated over time and resulting from the lack of policies favoring this age group. There is a need for oral rehabilitation that enables the recovery of function and esthetics among the elderly, restoring their self-esteem and improving social interaction.

Abstract: the present study analyzes the naming terminology given to the palms (arecaceae) by the baniwa indians of the indigenous community of tunuí cachoeira, in the upper rio negro, amazonas, brazil, in order to obtain the translation and/or the meaning of the words. data collection was achieved through the use of direct structured and semi-structured personal interviews, group study, and guided site-visits (to the plants in question). in analyzing the terms, it was possible to recognize naming characteristics tied to morphology (58%), ecology (29%) and culture (13%). it also was possible to demonstrate that there are superordinate terms (generics) that connect by hierarchical inclusion the subordinate categories (specifics), indicating a categorization and subcategorization in descending order. this is in accord with the berlinian model which names the primary lexeme and secondary lexeme, respectively. these analyses contribute to a better understanding of the traditional knowledge of the baniwa people.

Abstract: ECM proteins (type IV collagen, laminin and fibronectin) stimulate rat C6 glioma cell line adhesion in vitro, in a dose-dependent manner. The higher adhesion values were achieved with type IV collagen. Exogenous heparin or chondroitin sulfate impaired, in a dose-dependent manner the attachment of C6 glioma cell line to laminin and fibronectin, but not to type IV collagen. Dextran sulfate did not affect C6 adhesion to any ECM protein analyzed, indicating a specific role of GAGs in mediating glioma adhesion to laminin and fibronectin. GAGs and dextran sulfate did not induce C6 glioma detachment from any tested substrate suggesting specific effect in the initial step of cell adhesion. Furthermore, heparin and chondroitin sulfate impaired C6 cells proliferation on fibronectin, but not on type IV collagen or laminin. In contrast, both GAGs stimulate the glioma migration on laminin without effect on type IV collagen or fibronectin.The results suggest that GAGs and proteoglycans regulate glioma cell adhesion to ECM proteins in specific manner leading to cell proliferation or cell migration, according to the ECM composition, thus modulating tumor cell properties.Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common malignant form of glioma, and resistant to therapeutic interventions, causing most patients to die within 1 year after diagnosis[1]. The rat C6 glioma cell line, originally produced by Wistar-Furth rats exposed to N,N'-nitroso-methylurea, is morphologically similar to GBM when injected into brain of rats and has been used as both in vivo and in vitro model for the study of this kind of tumor[2].Extracellular matrix (ECM) components control many aspects of cell behavior, such as differentiation, proliferation, cell morphology and attachment[3]. It has been suggested that adhesion to ECM in vivo and in vitro is involved in the earlier steps of tumor progression, resulting in genomic instability which allows for the accumulation of multiple mutations[4].

Abstract: crown rust (puccinia coronata f. sp. avenae) is the most important disease of oats in brazil. in susceptible oat cultivars, fungicides are needed to control the disease efficiently. however, spray at low volumes may reduce fungicide performance significantly. a field experiment with the oat cultivar upfa-20 was carried out at the famv/upf to evaluate the influence of fungicides, rates, and spray volumes on the efficacy of the chemical control for crown rust. the tested treatments combined two fungicides (tebuconazole, folicur, 0,75 l ha-1; epoxiconazole + pyraclostrobin, opera, 0,5 l ha-1), four rates (40; 60; 80 and 100% of the commercial rate), and two spray volumes (100 and 200 l ha-1). the field plots were arranged according to a factorial block design (2′4′2) with four replicates. the assessments included the disease severity, disease control, grain quality and grain yield. the net profit of each treatment was also determined based upon the application costs and the sale price of oats at the harvest. at the same rate, for both fungicides, the volume of 200 l ha-1 provided better disease control. at this volume, the 50% rate controlled crown rust as good as the full (100%) rate with 100 l ha-1. the net profit differed between fungicides but not for spray volumes. the rate effects were fungicide dependent.
