Hurricane Opens Trauma Wounds

Intended Audience:
Public Health Professional who works on disability and health efforts
Public Health Professional who is new to disabilities
Abstract

Re-traumatization is the opening of old emotional wounds and the anxious anticipation of such re-wounding. It may be worse that the original trauma because it implies a string of "bad luck"-a sense of endless travail rather than one bad episode that has come and gone. It often feels like the old trauma plus a new trauma plus a loss of psychological safety. Psychological safety may be a myth (the thought that everything will eventually turn out right) but it is a helpful myth.

AADMD's National Curriculum Initiative in Developmental Medicine

Public Health Professional who works on disability and health efforts
Public Health Professional who is new to disabilities
Abstract

People with intellectual and developmental disabilities have benefited significantly from the medical advances of the last century. While the life expectancy of the general population has increased by around 30 percent over the past 80 years, the life expectancy of people with intellectual disabilities has increased by 200 percent. Once relegated only to discussions of pediatric medicine, intellectual and developmental disabilities are becoming increasingly more prevalent in the adult patient population. In fact, for the first time in the course of human history, there are now more adults living with intellectual and developmental disabilities than children.

Unfortunately, despite their longer life expectancies, people with ID/DD experience significant disparities in the quality of healthcare that they receive. As a result they are kept in poorer health and can be expected to die at a younger age than their non-disabled cohort. Though there are many factors contributing to this, lack of a physician training is frequently cited as one of the most pervasive. The fact that most medical students and medical residents will never receive adequate training to treat this patient population is a direct result of the lack of focus that medical schools and residency programs have in their curricula regarding patients with ID/DD.

Abstract

It is the news that doctors and families in the heart of Zika territory had feared: Some babies not born with the unusually small heads that are the most severe hallmark of brain damage as a result of the virus have developed the condition, called microcephaly, as they have grown older.

The findings were reported in a study of 13 babies in Brazil that was published Tuesday in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. At birth, none of the babies had heads small enough to receive a diagnosis of microcephaly, but months later, 11 of them did.

Including People with Disabilities: Public Health Workforce Competencies

link to resource: www.disabilityinpublichealth.org
Intended Audience:
Public Health Professional who works on disability and health efforts
Public Health Professional who is new to disabilities
Abstract

Compared to people without disabilities, people with disabilities are at a higher risk for poor health outcomes such as hypertension, obesity, falls-related injuries, and nisbet_jan_nhdepression.1 Knowledge about the health status and public health needs of people with disabilities is essential for addressing these and other health disparities. However, most public health training programs do not include curricula on people with disabilities and methods for including them in core public health efforts. There is a clear need for public health efforts to reduce health disparities among people with disabilities. This may be achieved by building a stronger public health workforce skilled in ways to include people with disabilities in all public health efforts.

Including People with Disabilities: Public Health Workforce Competencies outlines recent advances in knowledge and practice skills that public health professionals need to include people with disabilities in the core public health functions - Assessment, Policy Development and Assurance. This resource provides strategies to meet the competencies and real examples of how people with disabilities can be successfully included in public health activities. These competencies align with existing broad public health competencies, and compliment them. These existing competencies include those developed by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health, Masters in Public Health Core Competencies; Public Health Accreditation Board; Public Health Foundation Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals, Council on Linkages Between Public Health and Academia, and the 10 Essential Public Health Services. In addition, they foster workforce capacity-building priorities, such as the Healthy People 2020, Disability and Health Objective DH-3.

Intended Audience:
Abstract

Nutrition Services

The mission of the Nutrition Services Program is to improve the quantity and quality of nutrition services available to children and youth with disabilities in West Virginia and to increase awareness of the importance of nutrition services on the local, state and national levels.

Nutrition and Disabilities

Nutrition is essential for promoting growth and development in children and promoting and maintaining good health in adults. Good nutrition enables individuals to reach their full physical, mental, and emotional potential. Individuals with disabilities are often at risk for nutritional problems resulting from:

 

  • Special eating or feeding problems that make it difficult to meet nutritional needs
  • Movement or neurological limitations that affect activity levels and alter calorie needs
  • Weight problems (overweight or under weight)
  • Diets that are inappropriate or unbalanced
  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies and other side effects of long term or multiple medications
  • Alternate forms of feeding, such as G & J feeding tubes
  • Special nutrient requirements.

Intended Audience:
Abstract

Over 2.4 million Medicare beneficiaries rely upon electricity-dependent medical and assistive equipment, such as ventilators and wheel chairs, in our communities. Severe weather and disasters that cause power outages can be life threatening for these individuals.

How can we empower community and electricity-dependent Medicare beneficiary health resilience?

Every hospital, first responder, electric company, and community member can use the map to find the monthly total of Medicare beneficiaries with electricity-dependent equipment claims at the U.S. state, territory, county, and zip code level and turn on "real-time" NOAA severe weather tracking services to identify areas and populations that may be impacted and at risk for power outages.

Together, we can all better anticipate potential access and functional needs, emergency plan for the whole community, and assist our at-risk community members before, during, and after an emergency.

What Local Health Departments Should Know about the Population of People with Disabilities

link to resource: http://www.aucd.org/docs/phe/Fact%20Sheet_General%20Overview.pdf
Intended Audience:
Abstract

The National Association of County and City Health Officials' (NACCHO's) Health and Disability Program has been working with local health departments (LHDs) across the United States for several years to encourage the inclusion of people with disabilities in LHD programs, products, outreach, and services. In a recent national assessment of LHDs, NACCHO found that LHDs often misperceive what constitutes the population of people with disabilities.1 Some LHDs reported people with disabilities as those with developmental disabilities or physical disabilities, while others reported that Communities of Color or non-English speaking populations classify as members of the disability population, which is not the case. This fact sheet helps to clarify who people with disabilities are from a public health perspective and provides health-related information to LHDs about the members of this population.

To reduce and eliminate the disparities in health experienced by people with disabilities, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) works with local health departments (LHDs) to promote the inclusion and engagement of people with disabilities in all public health programs, products, outreach, and services. A recent NACCHO survey found that approximately 75% of LHDs provide some type of obesity or tobacco prevention program; however, only 30% include people with disabilities in such
prevention efforts.1 The purpose of this fact sheet is to emphasize the importance of including people with disabilities in all LHD programs, products, outreach, and services.

All Ready Delaware: Start Your Emergency Plan

link to resource: http://www.allreadyde.org/emergency-preparedness/start-your-emergency-plan/
Intended Audience:
Abstract

Are you ready to leave your home on short notice and travel to a relative's home or a public shelter? Do you have medicines you would need for several days away from home? If you provide supports for a person with disabilities, have you helped them prepare for a time when daily routines cannot be maintained at home? Evacuation will be much easier and safer if you and those you care for prepare now for what might happen tomorrow.

This tutorial will help you think through your personal needs in an emergency and plan how to respond. It will suggest action steps for your personal preparedness plan.

People with disabilities have been impacted harshly by hurricanes, floods, or even a bad snow storm. Emergencies can disrupt your daily routines and interrupt services that you rely on.

When weather causes power outages, for example, it is hard for anyone to keep to daily routines. But a person who needs electricity for an oxygen supply or other medical services must take action, before an emergency strikes, to prepare for loss of power.

Baltimore Healthy Stores (BHS)

link to resource: http://centertrt.org/?p=intervention&id=1093
Intended Audience:
Abstract

Small stores (often termed corner stores in urban settings) have unique potential to improve the nutrition environment in low-income communities due to their high prevalence and frequent use in these settings.

Small store initiatives use different approaches to increase the availability and consumption of healthy foods. One approach is to use a store's existing facilities; other strategies may involve changing a store's infrastructure (e.g., purchasing refrigeration units and display cases, adding to or reorganizing a store's interior, renovating a store's façade). Baltimore Healthy Stores (BHS) uses a store's existing facilities to improve access to healthy food and to increase consumers' knowledge, self-efficacy and behavioral intentions about healthy food choices and food preparation through health education and point-of-purchase marketing strategies.

BHS targets two levels of the socio-ecologic model: 1) the individual level by seeking to change consumer behaviors and 2) the organizational level by seeking to change corner stores practices, in particular by increasing the availability of healthy options. Baltimore Healthy Stores is a research-tested intervention.
