[To what extent Africa can limit the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic?] Rev Epidemiol Sante Publique. 2020 Sep 09;: Authors: Hoummadi L, Hafid J, Machraoui S, Admou B Abstract Following the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the alerts issued by the World Health Organization, for several months attention has been focused on Africa as a potentially severely endangered continent. A sizable number of African countries, mainly low and middle income, suffer from limited available resources, especially in critical care, and COVID-19 is liable to overwhelm their already fragile health sys...

[Health care delivery and psychiatric hospitalizations in the prisons of the North of France: An observational study].
CONCLUSION: Access to psychiatric care for inmates remains problematic in France, particularly due to a lack of mental health professionals in USMPs, the overload of patients in UHSAs and the distance of theses facilities from certain prisons and jails.

[Impact of models of care integrating direct access to physiotherapy in primary care and emergency care contexts in patients with musculoskeletal disorders: A narrative review].
CONCLUSION: The studies dealing with the new models for provision of care integrating direct access to physiotherapy in primary care or emergency care impart two lessons: (1) they are not designed to replace the physician; (2) collaboration between different health professionals aimed at improving patients' access to efficient care is to be encouraged. It would be worthwhile to focus upon dissemination factors that would enhance the efficiency of these innovative models in other countries, as in France.

Authors: Zulfiqar AA, Lorenzo-Villalba N, Peixoto A, Rio J, Gilibert A Abstract INTRODUCTION: Frailty is a transient and reversible condition that can lead to significant morbidity and mortality and to the loss of autonomy. It is one of the key issues in public health and the prevention of addiction. Physical activity is often described as a protective factor against addiction and as a factor in limiting frailty. Our goal is to analyze the relationship between physical activity and frailty among the elderly METHODS: A cross-sectional observational study was carried out in three general practice clinics located in t...

[At-risk drinking screening by general practitioners: A survey of patients in primary care].

Few studies have offered perspective from the patients' standpoint. The main purpose of this study was to describe general practitioners at-risk drinking screening from their patients point of view.

[How information on a patient's social status is gathered. An anthropological analysis of the discourses employed in private medical practice].
CONCLUSION: When a patient's social situation is sought out by private doctors and dentists, they are mainly concerned with customizing care pathways by taking financial impediments into close consideration. In most cases, their justifications for asking questions are subjective; by doing so, they inadvertently introduce arbitrariness in an area where the French state endeavors to produce social justice via provisions such as "CMU" ("universal", across the board health coverage). Systematic questioning on a patient's social status can represent a form of supplementary if unconscious symbolic violence to...

CONCLUSION: For the majority of the physicians surveyed, psychiatry represented a public health priority, and their prioritising provides a probable explanation for their positive perception of their role in the management of mental disorders. However, we went on to observe that a number of difficulties constituted obstacles to their role in management of mental disorders and induced them to refer their patients to psychiatrists. Our analysis highlighted the impact of continuing education on physicians' attitudes and the interest of collaboration between practitioners. Efforts in university teaching and continuous educatio...

CONCLUSION: The region wide ID rate and average duration of seclusion were lower than the nationwide rate (24% in full-time ID in 2015; 15 days of seclusion/patient), whereas the number of imminent danger procedures increased, as did the persistence of seclusion measures for patients in voluntary care (recommended only as a last resort and/or for ID patients). These results should lead to renewed assessment of care center practices. The French psychiatric hospital discharge database has several limitations, including lack of financial incentive and highly complex structuration. However, since 2018 new data regarding seclus...

Discomfort, muscle soreness or moderate pain following spinal manipulations lasting two or three days are commonly reported. In addition, some students may have ongoing spinal musculoskeletal disease (SMSD) during their studies.

The objective of this work was to assess the roles and missions of existing registries and to reflect on their positioning in this new environment.

However, the data that constitute them, validated by cross-checking information from several sources, are of very high quality, and make it possible to validate the data in the new databases (National Health Data System (NSDS) or Hospital Data Warehouses).

Authors: Le Turnier P, Leport C, Martin P, Jadand C, Hoen B, Guégan JF Abstract The social, economic and political consequences of emerging infectious disease (EID) may escape the sphere in which they first arise. In recent years, many EIDs have revealed the close links between human, animal and plant health, highlighting the need for multi-scale, multisectorial EID management. Human beings play a dual role in EID because they can promote their development through numerous human-environment interfaces and expanding international trade. On the other hand, their ability to analyze, interpret and act on the det...

CONCLUSIONS: Epidemiological figures emerging from this study confirm that trends in Lebanon are in line with a global pattern of decreasing age at menarche. Urban-rural differences suggest that higher caloric content of diet and consequent early overweight, more evident in urban areas, are likely determinants of younger menarche. Evidence from this study calls for an urgent implementation of comprehensive multisectoral obesity prevention in children in Lebanon.
