LI Li-qing,ZHOU Xiao-jun.School of Economics & Management,Jiangxi Science & Technology Normal University, Nanchang 330031,China

Abstract The development of community health services (CHS) can effectively alleviate the problems of "difficulty to see a doctor and higher medical expense". From the perspective of system engineering, we analyze in this paper the developing situation of CHS in urban areas of Nanchang, Jiujiang and Ganzhou cities in Jiangxi Province, taking the conditions of actual operation of CHS institutions in close connection with management theory, finding out the negative factors restricting the development of CHS. According to the theory of system dynamics and the analyzing technique of Peter Senge system archetype, we build up a typical system archetype restricting development of CHS, and analyze it quantitatively, and then we propose the targeted strategy to improve the development of CHS, and thus we provide a theoretical basis for increasing service ability in CHS.

YU Zhen-jie,ZHAO Yan-kui,YU Qian-qian,et al.Management Department of Weifang Medical University,Weifang 261053,China

Abstract Objective To know community health staffs attitude to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).

Methods Questionnaire survey was used to do the investigation,and the explored factor analysis was taken to perform the analysis of dimensions for influencing factors to attitude.

Results Some 93.81% (500/533) believed that TCM had superiority over Western Medicine,however only 6.19% (33/533) held that the development condition of TCM at their local region was very good.The explored factor analysis revealed that the answered average score for importance of TCM service was 2.03,being the smallest;the average score for mastering TCM service technique was 3.22,being the highest.While the average scores for trusting,preferring,concerning and utilizing TCM service were respectively 2.25,2.28,2.23 and 2.75.By extraction of common factors through factor analysis and reduction the number of variants,finally three larger common factors were obtained,and they were respectively called behavior tendency factor,mood factor and recognition factor.

Conclusion In recognition dimension the community health staffs degree of mastering the theoretical knowledge and service skill on TCM is lower;in mood dimension the grade of trusting and concerning TCM service is higher;and in behavior tendency dimension the work done in utilizing TCM service,exchanging TCM-related information with colleagues,and recommending TCM to patient is unsatisfactory.It is suggested that training and continuing education should be enhanced,so as to improve community health staffers mastery of knowledge and service skill and promote community TCM development.

QIU Chuang-liang,XU Xing,WANG Hong-rui,et al.Community Health Service Management Center of Fuyong Peoples Hospital in Baoan District,Shenzhen 518103,China

Abstract Objective To analyze the present situation of resource allocation of community health centers (CHC) and the existing problems so as to provide a reference to improve the service ability of CHC.

Methods Baoan and Longgang districts were taken as main labor distribution regions (MLDR) and Futian and Luohu as secondary labor distribution regions (SLDR).The indicators for service ability of CHC between MLDR and SLDR were comparatively analyzed.

Results By 2010,there was no significant difference in area of business houses between MLDR and SLDR P0.01.The houses of CHC were mainly rented.No statistical difference in total income was found between P0.01.The drug income accounted for more than 45% of the clinic income in all the districts.The actual amount of human resource allocation in all districts was lower than the standard.The number of doctors in MLDR were higher than that of SLDR,with a significant difference P0.01.The number of traditional Chinese doctors and public health doctors were of the most shortage,especially in MLDR like Baoan.

Conclusion The financial subsidy to CHC is limited.The human resource allocation of CHC of MLDR is unreasonable and thus it influences the utilization of health service by laborers.And the traditional Chinese medicine in CHC remains to be allowed to play its service function fully.

Abstract Objective To investigate the impact of concurrent hypertension in patients with type 2 diabetes on autonomic and peripheral nerve lesions.

Methods A total of 156 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus were recruited. They were divided as hypertension group (n=76) and non-hypertension group (n=80) according to the hypertension diagnostic criteria,At the same period,60 healthy persons in healthy medical examination were enrolled as control group.The general data of all the subjects were collected,and their autonomic and peripheral nerve functions were tested.

Results (1) The heart rate variability (HRV) parameters of the three groups showed statistically significant difference (P0.05).The HRV parameters were significantly lower in the hypertension and non-hypertension groups than in the control group (P0.05);and the HRV parameters were significantly lower in the hypertension group than in the non-hypertension group (P0.05).(2) The vibration perception threshold (VPT) parameters of the three groups showed statistically significant difference (P0.05).The VPT parameters were significantly higher in the hypertension and non-hypertension groups than in the control group (P0.05);however the VPT parameters between the hypertension group and the non-hypertension group showed no significantly difference (P0.05).

Conclusion The hypertension complication in type 2 diabetes mellitus may have a certain influence on the autonomic nerve function,but have little effect on peripheral nerve function.So the type 2 diabetes patients complicated by hypertension need to be given autonomic nerve function test and active control of blood sugar and blood pressure as early as possible.
