Stop the Bleed Bucket Brigade
University Hospitals (UH), located in Northeast Ohio, serves 20 counties with 10 community hospitals, a Level 1 trauma center and four Level 3 trauma centers. We also operate five freestanding EDs in the community and provide medical direction and oversight of the equipment, education, drugs and protocols for 171 EMS services. UH is also responsible for disaster preparedness for the health system and the communities it serves. We also provide event medicine services, including at Cleveland Browns football games, marathons, and other events. We manage five American Heart Association training centers and offer five paramedic training programs. Our system decided early in the development of a national Stop the Bleed initiative that we would implement a comprehensive program for our region. Our program started in our eastern region and quickly snowballed. We believe it’s a program that can be mimicked in schools and businesses across the country. Innovation Stems from Tragedy Emergency response programs often start after a tragic event. Ours was no different. Chardon is a quiet rural community in Geauga County, which is about 25 miles from Cleveland. This is in the heart of what’s called the “snow belt”—when other areas get two inches of snow in a day, they get three feet of snow. On Feb. 27, 2012, students were starting their day at school as usual; there was a group of students in the cafeteria waiting for a bus that would take them to their vocati...

Authors: Kosińska B, Grabowski ML Abstract Balneotherapy experiences a sharp increase in popularity during recent years. The present paper gives a perspective on the therapeutic use of mineral baths in the town of Solec-Zdroj in southeastern Poland, an old time spa endowed with rich natural sulfurous water resources. Historical aspects of the formation and development of the spa are presented, along with the contemporary insights into the plausible mechanisms and benefits of sulfide treatment, not only in otherwise hardly treatable chronic skin disorders but also in a variety of disease processes in organ systems....

Conclusion: Rapid response systems are complex interventions requiring consideration of contextual factors at micro, meso and macro levels. Appropriate resources, a skilled workforce and positive workplace culture are needed before effective uptake and utilisation of RRS can reach their full potential. Impact Statement: The RRS model is evolving and adapting to practice models. Considering contextual factors and patient, provider and health system elements are crucial for ensuring intervention fidelity. PMID: 31225768 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, we will use a mixed methods multi-center study design. In phase one, we will investigate the mental health literacy of PHC practitioners to identify areas in need of development. Based on the needs identified, we will develop and test a mobile health application to screen for common youth mental health problems in phase two. In phase three, we will implement and evaluate a tiered education and training program in the use of the m-health application. In the final phase, we will evaluate the acceptability and feasibility of the m-health application in PHC centres across South Africa and Zambia. Evidence sugges...
