【Abstract】 Background The workload of family doctors in Minhang District,Shanghai,is increasing with the continuous promotion of the local community healthcare reform and the gradual improvement of family doctor system.High workload may induce burnout,which should not be neglected.So it is imperative to adequately understand the occupational stress and burnout in family doctors and deliver targeted and precise interventions in time.Objective To investigate the occupational stress and burnout among family doctors in Minhang District,Shanghai,providing evidence for delivering mental health interventions for this population.Methods From October to November,2018,by use of cluster sampling,308 eligible family doctors from Minhang District were enrolled after signing the written informed consent form.They received a self-administered survey with a self-developed General Personal Information Questionnaire,the Psychosomatic Tension Relaxation Inventory and the Maslach Burnout Inventory(MBI)for understanding general personal information,occupational stress and burnout,and the results were analyzed.Results Among the 308 respondents,190(61.7%)had excessive stress,72(23.4%)had moderate stress and 46(14.9%)had low stress.Occupational stress did not vary significantly by gender,age,marital and childbearing status,hukou,education level,professional title,working length,and ways for achieving general practitioner qualification(P>0.05).The prevalence rates of no burnout,moderate and severe burnout were 39.0%(120/308),49.0%(151/308)and 12.0%(37/308),respectively.The degree of burnout differed significantly by hukou and working length(P<0.05),but not by gender,age,marital and childbearing status,education level,professional title and ways for achieving general practitioner qualification
(P>0.05).Higher mean scale score and subscales(emotional exhaustion,depersonalization and low personal accomplishment)scores of MBI were found in those with excessive occupational stress than those with moderate or low occupational stress,and were found in those with moderate occupational stress instead of those with low occupational stress
(P<0.05).Conclusion Most family doctors in Minhang District have excessive occupational stress,and moderate to severe burnout,so interventions should be delivered to them in time.In addition,special guidance should be given to those with Shanghai hukou or working length of 6-10 years,to cope with stress and relieve burnout appropriately.

【Abstract】 Background Metabolic syndrome(MS) is the common pathological basis and early stage of many noncommunicable diseases,such as cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.Although early identifying MS can prevent some chronic illnesses early,predictive values of indicators for MS in reports are still unclear.Objective To explore the predictive value of resting heart rate(RHR) combined with white blood cell(WBC) count and hematocrit(HCT) for MS,to provide a reference for early MS prevention.Methods From Health Management Center,the Second Affiliated Hospital of Dalian Medical University,24 612 physical examinees were enrolled in 2017.MS prevalence and components were evaluated in accordance with 2013 diagnostic criteria for MS by the Chinese Diabetes Society.The levels of RHR,WBC count,HCT,neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio(NLR) and uric acid(UA) were compared among MS patients by prevalence of MS and number of MS components(0 to 3 and more).Impacts of RHR,WBC count,HCT,NLR and UA on MS were analyzed by multiple Logistic regression.ROC analysis was conducted to evaluate the values of RHR,WBC count,HCT and combination of the three in predicting MS.Results The prevalence of MS was 27.71%(5 343/24 612).MS group showed higher mean levels of RHR,WBC count,HCT,NLR and UA than non-MS group(P<0.001).After adjusting for sex and age by propensity score matching,the above-mentioned intergroup differences were still significant(P<0.001).Levels of RHR,WBC count,HCT,NLR and UA elevated with the increase of combined MS components(P<0.001).Multiple Logistic regression analysis showed that increased RHR,WBC count,HCT and UA were risk factors for MS(OR=1.032 0,1.234 5,1.028 4,
1.006 7,P<0.001).For predicting MS,AUCs of RHR,WBC count,HCT,and the combination of the three were 0.572,0.654,0.682,and 0.716,respectively.Conclusion Joint detection of RHR,WBC count and HCT is simple and convenient,and can improve the accuracy of MS early prediction,which may be used as a reference for prophase prevention of MS.

【Abstract】 Background In recent years,the incidence of chronic diseases in China has been increasing rapidly,causing a heavy burden of disease.As a controllable factor in the risk factors of chronic diseases,behavioral lifestyle is very important for prevention and control of chronic diseases.Objective To explore the types of common chronic diseases and the association between common chronic diseases and the residents' lifestyle in Shanxi Province,so as to provide basis for intervention of chronic diseases.Methods The multi-stage random sampling method was used to survey the residents aged 35 years and over in Shanxi Province.The contents include basic demographic characteristics, behavior and lifestyle, and chronic diseases.Latent class analysis was applied to classify the individuals into different groups.Further studies were conducted to compare the prevalence of chronic diseases among different lifestyle groups.Results A total of 3 800 questionnaires were distributed and 3 496 valid questionnaires were recovered,with an effective recovery rate of 92.00%.The prevalence of chronic diseases in Shanxi Province was 39.99%(1 398/3 496),among which hypertension 〔20.68%(723/3 496)〕,diabetes 〔8.67%(303/3 496)〕,rheumatoid arthritis 〔6.61%(231/3 496)〕 and hyperlipidemia 〔5.84%(204/3 496)〕 were identified as common chronic diseases according to the rank of disease prevalence.Four latent classes were yielded:behavioral health group〔59.98%(2 097
/3 496)〕,smoking and drinking group〔19.99%(699/3 496)〕,unhealthy diet group〔12.01%(420
/3 496)〕 and unhealthy lifestyle group〔8.01%(81/3 496)〕.The prevalence of hypertension,diabetes and hyperlipidemia among the four groups were different (P<0.05). There was no significant difference in the prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis among the four groups (P>0.05). Conclusion There was a clear classification of behavioral lifestyles among residents in Shanxi Province.Distribution of people with hypertension,diabetes mellitus and hyperlipidemia in different latent categories was significantly different.Different intervention strategies should be advocated for people in different categories.

【Abstract】 Background Annual hypertension incidence is increasing in young adults.However,due to inadequate identification of and insufficient attention paid to this group,there are no guidelines for the prevention and treatment of hypertension in this group.Objective To examine the clinical characteristics of hypertension in young adults,providing suggestions and references for early diagnosis and treatment of hypertension in this group.Methods We enrolled 875 young adults(≤35 years old) who were initially hospitalized for hypertension from Hypertension Center,Fuwai Hospital from 2016 to 2017.We collected their clinical data,etiological types,complications and indicators of target organ damage.Results Of the participants,624(71.3%) had essential hypertension,and 451(72.3%) of them were men.251(28.7%) had secondary hypertension,and 168(66.9%) of them were men.Obstructive sleep apnea(OSA) was the most common cause of secondary hypertension in 251 young adults, followed by renal artery stenosis(RAS), primary aldosteronism(PA), aortic stenosis, polycystic ovary syndrome and renal parenchymal hypertension. Other rare causes included thyroid dysfunction, Cushing's syndrome, Liddle's syndrome and pheochromocytoma.Compared with those with essential hypertension,secondary hypertension patients had higher mean admission blood pressure levels,and higher rates of renal insufficiency,heart failure,aortic dissection,and peripheral arterial stenosis/occlusion(P<0.05).Conclusion Essential hypertension is more common in young hypertensive adults,especially in males.Nearly one third of them have factors that can lead to secondary hypertension,among which OSA,RAS,and PA are three major ones.Secondary hypertension patients have higher admission blood pressure and more severe target organ damage than those with essential hypertension.

【Abstract】 Background In the continuing education for general practitioners(GPs),short-term specialty trainings for improving GPs' clinical diagnostic and therapeutic skills account for a large proportion.However,difficulties in concentrating energies on learning can easily occur if such trainings are mainly based on traditional teaching.So it is essential to use case-based teaching in such trainings to improve the training effect.Objective To explore the effect of case-based teaching in short-term obstetrics and gynecology training programs for GPs.Methods A total of 110 GPs who participated in the short-term training on standardized diagnosis and treatment of common diseases and frequently-occurring diseases in obstetrics and gynecology in Chongqing General Medicine Education Center in 2018 were enrolled.At the time of enrollment,they were randomly divided into the first phase(control group) and the second phase(study group).According to inclusion and exclusion criteria,six cases who asked for leave during the training and failed to complete the relevant examinations were excluded.Finally,52 cases were included in each of the groups.Both groups received the same training program,namely,the same teaching content(diagnosis and treatment of common and frequently-occurring diseases in obstetrics and gynecology),the same training time(one week),and the same evaluation (an examination of the same difficulty before and after the training,and a questionnaire survey on training effectiveness and satisfaction),but received different teaching mode,case teaching was used in training for the study group,while traditional teaching was used in training for the control group.Pre- and post-training test score,self-rated clinical diagnostic and therapeutic skills,clinical thoughts,mastery of basic knowledge,learning interest and training satisfaction were compared between the two groups.Results The mean pre-training test scores of the control group and the study group were similar〔(62.6±14.6) vs (61.6±18.6),P>0.05〕.After training,the mean test score increased significantly in both groups(P<0.05),but better improvement was found in the study group instead of the control group〔(95.6±2.0) vs (86.5±8.7),P<0.05〕.Moreover,mean post-training self-rated scores for clinical diagnostic and therapeutic skills,clinical thoughts,mastery degree of basic knowledge,learning interest and training satisfaction of the study group were significantly higher than those of the control group(P<0.05).Conclusion In short-term training for GPs with obstetrics and gynecology programs,case-based teaching is superior to traditional teaching in terms of improving the teaching effectiveness,and GPs' skills in diagnosing and treating obstetrical and gynecological conditions.

【Abstract】 The metaphor of regional healthcare consortium symbiotic network is carried out from the perspective of ecosystem,which aims at providing a new perspective for explaining and further exploring the operation principles of the regional healthcare consortium. Based on the ecological theoretical framework and social bionic research paradigm,the study identified and determined four intrinsic characteristics of the regional healthcare consortium symbiotic network:intensive symbiosis,dynamic competition,self-adaptability and network openness. Then,we interpreted the formation,circulation,symbiosis and governance mechanism of the regional healthcare consortium symbiotic network. Finally,with regard to problems in the development of regional healthcare consortium in China,we put forward that to realize the healthy and sustainable development of regional healthcare consortium symbiotic network,individualized characteristics of the members in the consortium and their own speed of development should be respected. Moreover,competitions and cooperations between the members should be handled appropriately.

【Abstract】 Background Depression and anxiety are the most common mental health problems among the elderly in the community.Management of emotions by use of cognitive strategies is closely related to the life of older people.At present,research on cognitive emotion regulation strategies and negative emotions among the elderly is rare.Objective To examine the relationship of depression and anxiety with cognitive emotion regulation strategies in the elderly in the community,to provide insights to deliver interventions for depression or anxiety in this population.Methods By use of convenience sampling,550 community-dwelling residents aged 60 or over were selected from Xinxiang,Henan Province from March to April 2018,and were surveyed with the General Demographic Questionnaire developed by our research team,15-item Geriatric Depression Scale(GDS-15),Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7(GAD-7) and the Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire(CERQ).Spearman rank correlation was used to analyze the relationship of depression and anxiety with cognitive emotion regulation strategies.And stepwise multiple linear regression was used to analyze the influencing factors of depression and anxiety.Results A total of 514 cases returned responsive questionnaires,indicating that the survey obtained a response rate of 93.5%.The prevalence rates of depression,and anxiety were 26.5%(136/514),and 9.9%(51/514),respectively.Correlation analysis showed that depression scores were positively correlated with self-blame,rumination,catastrophization,and blaming others(P<0.05),and negatively correlated with acceptance,self-consolation,refocus on planning,positive refocusing,and positive reappraisal(P<0.05);anxiety scores were positively correlated with self-accusation rumination,catastrophization,and blaming others(P<0.05),and negatively correlated with self-consolation acceptance,refocus on planning,positive refocasing,and positive reappraisal(P<0.05).Stepwise multiple linear regression analysis showed that age,education level,number of chronic diseases,number of good friends,family relationship,physical condition and rumination,catastrophization,blaming others,self-comfort and positive reappraisal were the influencing factors of depression among the elderly in the community(P<0.05);age,number of chronic diseases,family relationship,average monthly income and rumination,catastrophization,blaming others,and positive reappraisal were the influencing factors of anxiety among the elderly in community(P<0.05).Conclusion The incidence rates of anxiety and depression among the elderly in the community are high.The use of cognitive emotion regulation strategies is closely related to depression and anxiety.Those who more frequently use non-adaptive strategies such as rumination,catastrophization,blaming others,and less frequently use positive reappraisal and other adaptive strategies,may be more likely to experience depression and anxiety.
