【Abstract】 Background The contracted family doctor service has played an active role in improving the service capacity at grassroots level,meeting residents' medical needs,and implementing hierarchical diagnosis and treatment system.However,problems such as the low quality of performance,low degree of residents' recognition,and low enthusiasm of family physicians in the course of policy implementation have gradually become apparent.How to optimize and guarantee the implementation of the family physician policy has become the focus of grassroots reform.Objective To explore difficulties in the implementation of family physician policy in our country and put forward the corresponding elimination paths,with a view to providing reference for the improvement of the family physician system.Methods This paper retrieved relevant policy documents on family physician issued by the State Council and the National Health Commission from 2016,and searched documents in the China National Knowledge Infrastructure database,Wanfang Data database and VIP database with "family physician" as the key word.Excluding duplicate and irrelevant documents,1 393 qualified documents were finally included.In addition,China Health and Family Planning Statistics Yearbook(2015—2017),2018 China Health Statistics Yearbook and China's Health and Wellness Development Statistical Bulletin 2018 were served as quantitative data sources.On this basis,this paper analyzed the difficulties in the implementation of family physician policy from the ambiguity of policy objectives and policy means,the conflict between policy participants,and the dominant factors in policy implementation using the ambiguity-conflict theory.Results The ambiguity of the family physician policy was gradually reduced,and the conflict between the policy participants was still more significant that mainly manifested in the gap between government's vision plan and residents' medical seeking mode,the benefit balance dilemma in the upper and lower hospitals,and the low degree of policy recognition of the family physicians.At the same time,the policy implementation process was transformed from symbolic implementation to political implementation,and the dominant factors were transformed from the coalition strength to power.Conclusion The implementation of the family physician policy has not achieved the desired effect.The policy implementation effect was affected by the small difference in policy target areas,the weak service capacity at grassroots level,the imperfect benefit distribution and compensation mechanism,the lack of legal protection,and insufficient resource allocation.To solve difficulties in the policy implementation process,it is recommended to adjust policy objectives and means,clarify the benefit distribution and division of labor and cooperation mechanism among medical institutions and personnel at all levels,improve residents' sense of gain from contracted services,improve the legal guarantee of policies,and adjust the allocation structure of health resources.

【Abstract】 Background Current medical research on 25-hydroxyvitamin D〔25-(OH)-D〕mainly focuses on calcium homeostasis and bone metabolism,inflammatory reaction,glycolipid metabolism and immunity.But there are few studies on serum 25-(OH)-D levels and target organ damage in elderly adults with hypertension.Objective To examine the associations of serum 25-(OH)-D with left ventricular hypertrophy,renal damage and carotid atherosclerosis in elderly patients with essential hypertension.Methods 325 patients with essential hypertension(aged from 60 to 79) were selected from the Cardiovascular Ward,Geriatric Ward and clinics,the First Affiliated Hospital of Jinzhou Medical University between September 2016 and September 2018.They were divided into simple hypertension subgroup(n=68),single target organ damage group(n=124,including 29 coexisted with left ventricular hypertrophy,44 with renal damage,and 51 with carotid atherosclerosis),and multiple target organ damage subgroup(n=133) by the prevalence of target organ damage,and were divided into 25-(OH)-D-sufficient subgroup(n=25),25-(OH)-D-insufficient subgroup(n=58)and 25-(OH)-D-deficient subgroup(n=242)by the level of 25-(OH)-D.General clinical data and biochemical indicators were compared between target organ damage subgroups and 25-(OH)-D subgroups.The influencing factors of target organ damage were explored by multiple ordinal Logistic regression analysis.Results Mean age,course of hypertension,SBP and DBP increased and mean 25-(OH)-D decreased successively in simple hypertension,single target organ damage and multiple target organ damage subgroups(P<0.05).In comparison to 25-(OH)-D-sufficient group,the level of TG was significantly higher in 25-(OH)-D-deficient group(P<0.05).Pearson correlation analysis showed that 25-(OH)-D level was negatively correlated with TG(r=-0.12,P<0.05).Mean serum 25-(OH)-D level was higher in those without target organ damage than that of those with coexisting left ventricular hypertrophy,renal damage or carotid atherosclerosis(t=3.019,P=0.003;t=2.660,P=0.009;t=2.437,P=0.016).Multiple ordinal Logistic regression analysis showed that older age,longer duration of hypertension,elevated SBP and DBP,and low 25-(OH)-D increased the risk of target organ damage in essential hypertension(OR=1.10,1.06,1.12,1.07,0.94,respectively;P<0.05).Conclusion 25-(OH)-D deficiency is common in elderly patients with essential hypertension.The 25-(OH)-D level is negatively correlated with TG.Older age,longer duration of hypertension,elevated blood pressure,and 25-(OH)-D deficiency are independent risk factors for target organ damage.

【Abstract】 Background Obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery generally have preoperative problems associated with reduced exercise capacity,which affects their postoperative weight loss outcomes.6MWT is an easy and well-validated method for evaluating the functional abilities of obese adults.Studies have shown that there is a close relationship between exercise capacity and different body composition indicators.However,there is no research conducted to investigate the impact of body composition on exercise capacity in these patients before the bariatric surgery.Objective To investigate the impact of body composition on 6MWD in bariatric surgery candidates.Methods Convenience sampling was used to recruit 202 obese patients undergoing metabolic surgery in bariatric and metabolic surgery of a grade A tertiary hospital in Jiangsu Province from August 2017 to November 2018.All included subjects measured body composition with InBody 770 Body Composition Analyzer,and then performed 6MWT before surgery.Pearson correlation analysis was performed to explore the correlation between 6MWD and body composition.Stepwise multiple regression was used to examine the association between preoperative body composition and 6MWD.Results The mean preoperative distance of 6MWD was(486.65±52.26) m in patients before metabolic surgery,and(520.13±60.56) m in healthy adults of the same age,height and body mass,with statistically significant difference
(t=-23.718,P<0.001).Analysis results showed that 6MWD was negatively correlated with weight(r=-0.236,P<0.05),body fat mass percentage(FM%)(r=-0.357,P<0.05),FM% of upper limps (r=-0.363,P<0.05),of lower limbs
(r=-0.344,P<0.05),and of trunk(r=-0.240,P<0.05),and BMI(r=-0.358,P<0.05) and visceral fat area(r=-0.258,P<0.05),while there was a positive relationship between 6MWD and body's fat-free mass percentage(FFM%)(r=0.357,P<0.05),FFM % of upper limps(r=0.363,P<0.05),of lower limbs(r=0.344,P<0.05),and of trunk (r=0.240,P<0.05).Stepwise multiple regression showed that BMI and FFM% of lower limbs were independently associated with 6MWD(P<0.05).Conclusion Patients awaiting bariatric surgery are found with reduced exercise capacity.The lower the BMI and the higher the FFM% of the lower extremity,the farther the patient's 6MWD is.

【Abstract】 Background Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction(HFpEF) is the most prevalent form of heart failure in outpatients.Yet,the pathophysiology of this syndrome is unclear and pharmacological treatment does not improve prognosis.Because breathlessness during activities of daily living is the most frequent complaint of patients with HFpEF,we hypothesize that lung function may be often abnormal in these patients due to either a direct effect of HFpEF and/or shared risk factors.Objective To explore the frequency,type and severity of lung function abnormalities in HFpEF.Methods 138 cases of newly diagnosed symptomatic HFpEF were selected from Cardiovascular Clinic,Guangdong Tongjiang Hospital between September 2016 and December 2017.Forced spirometry,static lung volumes,diffusing capacity of the lungs for carbon monoxide(DLCO) and arterial blood gases were measured.Results 94.2%(130/138) of the patients showed abnormalities in at least one of the lung function measurements,and 80.8%(105/130) of them were undiagnosed and untreated.Forced spirometry was abnormal in 58.7%(81/138)〔percents of mild,moderate and severe were 23.2%(32/138),26.8%(37/138),8.7%(12/138),respectively〕,DLCO was found in 83.3%(115/138)〔percents of mild,moderate and severe were 47.8%(66/138),29.0%(40/138),6.5%(9/138),respectively〕 and arterial hypoxaemia was present in 60.9%(84/138)〔percents of mild,moderate and severe were 34.8%(48/138),21.0%(29/138),5.1%(7/138),respectively〕.Abnormal spirometry and DLCO were more prevalent in NYHA classⅢ patients than those of NYHA class Ⅰ/Ⅱ patients(P<0.05).Conclusion Lung function abnormalities are very frequent in HFpEF patients.Abnormalities in forced spirometry and DLCO,and arterial hypoxaemia are also quite common.Attention should be paid to these abnormalities.A greater awareness of them among clinicians may contribute to improve the management and health status of the patients.

【Abstract】 Background Transferring contracted residents with a disease that cannot treated in the community health center to a higher level hospital via an appointment made in advance,is an important contracted task for family doctors,and is also a basis of implementing the hierarchical medical policies.Objective To investigate the implementation of referral appointments in contracted residents,providing a theoretical basis for further improvement and popularization of the services.Methods This study was conducted in 240 contracted patients from Minhang District Pujin Community Health Center(MDPCHC),including 120 with an experience of ever being transferred to a higher level hospital from MDPCHC after making an appointment in advance(appointment group) during January to June 2019,and 120 randomly selected cases with the record of seeking healthcare in a higher level hospital during the same period but without making an appointment(non-appointment group).Basic general data and appointed referral data of the appointment group were collected from Shanghai Family Doctor Referral Appointment Platform.A telephone questionnaire survey based on hierarchical diagnosis and treatment and family doctor services was conducted in both groups.The influence of implementing referral appointments on relevant business development was analyzed.Results The mean age of the appointment group was(65.4±8.7) years old,most of whom were elderly people.The average number of referral appointments was(1.5±1.0),and the average appointment period was(13.2±11.4) days.The hospital with the highest number of appointments was Southern Division of Renji Hospital,accounting for 70.1%(124/177) of the total appointment.The department with the highest number of appointments was digestive department(22.0%,39/177).The survey showed that both groups' patients showed significant differences in the awareness rates of names of their contracted family doctors,and specific contents of contracted family doctors services,level of satisfaction with contracted family doctors services,community health services,and with the services delivered by the local general hospitals(P<0.05).Conclusion The implementation of the policies concerning referral appointments by family doctors has facilitated contracted residents to access to the registration of higher level hospitals,increased their awareness of and satisfaction with relevant medical services,and is conducive to the development of hierarchical diagnosis and treatment.To further take the advantages of making appointments with specialists working at higher level hospitals by the family doctor,it is suggested to strengthen the propaganda and use frequency of the referral appointment platform,ensure the implementation of family doctor services by the cooperative institutions of the medical consortium,increase the number of specialist appointments of the department with high-frequency referral appointments,and reduce the referral waiting time of the patients as far as possible.

【Abstract】 With the deepening of the comprehensive reform of community health services in Shanghai,the number of residents signing medical contracts with family doctors has continued to expand,but the problems of imperfect supporting measures and residents signing contracts without visiting still exist.Establishing a long-term and stable service relationship between contracted residents and family doctors is the basis for the practice of family doctor services.On the basis of consolidating the existing contract-signing rate of residents,the Pujin Community Health Service Center in Minhang District of Shanghai had shifted the focus of contracted family doctor service to provide the effective service,in order to explore the reform methods of family doctor service to improve the corresponding visiting rate of contracted residents.The main methods included carrying out the "three optimizations and two extensions" model(optimizing the shift arrangement of general practitioners,the publicity model,and outpatient registration and visiting queue system;extending the telephone consultation service hours and working-day noon service hours and opening the weekend clinics);implementing the "two more policy" for drug supply after residents signed contracts(signed residents were issued a larger number of drug types and quantities for outpatient visits);implementing the service of long prescription and extending its advantages;promoting the reform of performance and evaluation mechanism to widen the performance gap between contracted residents and non-contracted residents receiving outpatient consultation from family doctors;and issuing quality briefings to conduct appraisal feedback in the form of rectification notice.After one year of the reform(as of June 2019),the rates of consulting the contracted family doctor,visiting the contracted family doctor for outpatient services,and extending period of prescriptions by the contracted family doctor reached 38.53%,31.99% and 87.03%,respectively,which increased by 30.54,26.98 and 60.02 percentage points compared with the beginning of the reform(July 2018).At the same time,the resource utilization of family doctor services,the awareness rate of family doctor services,and satisfaction degree of residents also improved to a certain extent.The purpose of this article is to introduce the reform methods,the effect and further work priorities of Pujin Community Health Service Center,in order to provide references for other areas to improve the effectiveness of contracted family doctor services.

【Abstract】 Background Along with rapid urbanization,population ageing and economic growth in China,the burden of common mental health issues such as anxiety and depression disorders is becoming heavier,spurring an increased need for mental health services in Chinese people.Mental health literacy is an important mental health facilitator.But it and its influencing factors have been rarely studied intensively.Objective To investigate mental health literacy and associated factors in community-dwelling residents from Shanghai,providing evidence for the implementation of community-based mental health services and formulation of mental health policies.Methods This study was conducted between August and December 2016 based on a cross-sectional design.A self-developed structured questionnaire was used to survey 3 502 residents from three communities,Shanghai,to collect their basic personal data,use of mental health services,core mental health knowledge,and mental health status(assessed by the GAD-7 and PHQ-9),as well as ways for obtaining mental health knowledge.Multiple linear regression was performed to identify the influencing factors for mental health literacy based on the Andersen Healthcare Utilization Model.Results All the residents returned questionnaires.After excluding 97 who returned unresponsive ones,other 3 405 cases(97.23%) were finally included.The overall rate of correct answers was 59.84%.Multiple linear regression analysis showed that the level of mental health literacy was influenced significantly by predisposing factors,including age,education level,occupation,occupational status,religion,and need cognition of community-based mental health services(P<0.05),and enabling factors consisting of annual household income per capita and level of community-based mental health resources availability(P<0.05),but was not by need including anxiety symptoms and depression symptoms(P>0.05).The major ways to acquire mental health knowledge were watching TV(50.90%),publicity of community-based mental health services(33.69%),guidance from doctors(25.90%) and reading books and newspapers(21.56%).Conclusion The mental health literacy level is low in this group of community-dwelling residents,which is mostly affected by predisposing factors such as sociodemographic characteristics and socio-cultural factors,and enabling factors such as level of community-based mental health resources availability and so on,but not significantly associated with the need for improving anxiety and depressive symptoms.This study highlights that mental health propaganda and education should be integrated into community-based health services,and should be more intensified and extensively in priority groups.
